Today on our 2015 Hyundai Tucson, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the T1 Vehicle Wiring Harness with four pole flat trailer connector. Part number 118501. Here's what it looks like. The reason you'd want one of these, because with this system, with the module, it's going to isolate your vehicle lights from your trailer lights, and it's going to isolate any backfeeding 00:00:25 from your trailer into your vehicle. This system is designed to be stored away inside your hatch when not in use, with this little dust cover that's going to cover up the wiring. We would just close it up, it's out of sight. When you're ready to use it, you just take it out, set out the amount you're going to need, close your door back up.

Hyundai Tucson Questions

  • I've spoken to my Thule (Thule owns SportRack) representative regarding carrying a small Jon boat on a vehicle roof rack. The concern with the SportRack # SR1009 roof rack you mentioned is its relatively low weight capacity and its short crossbars which would only leave 2 inches of crossbar on the each side of the boat, which wouldn't be sufficient to tie off the boat to the crossbar. Because of this, I wouldn't recommend the SportRack roof rack. A better choice would be a...

  • Trailer wiring harnesses for your 2016 Hyundai Tucson, # C56277 and # 118501, both install the same way. They connect to the vehicle in 3 places: behind each of the tail lights and to the battery. The power wire has to be connected to the vehicle battery because no other 12 volt power source is appropriately rated for this application. I have included a link to our help article with tips on routing the power wire. If you do not already have a trailer hitch then you could...

  • To find the right size battery box for your Lance trailer, you will need to take a couple measurements to make sure it will work for you. If you want to mount it on the tongue of your trailer you need to know if it has sufficient space to handle the length, width, and height of the battery box. The box you asked about, part # TLA7708R measures 26-3/4 inches x 8-3/16 inches x 13 inches. The smaller box, part # TLA7712R measures a bit shorter at 23-7/8 inches but the width...

  • A sales rep is not necessarily going to know your vehicle so the first step is to consult the vehicle owners manual for the towing capacity and whether or not the Tucson can be used with weight distribution. You also need to check the trailer hitch, if you already have one, to see if it is rated for weight distribution. If the owners manual or hitch state you cannot use weight distribution then you cannot use it. I was able to find an online copy of the owners manual and according...

  • To access the wires that supply power to the tail lights at the rear of the 2011 Hyundai Tuscon, you will need to remove two Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assemblies in place, see photo link. After the screws are removed, carefully work the tail light assembly straight out from the rear of the vehicle, wiggling it slightly side to side. Once you have the tail light assembly pulled away from the vehicle you will be able to access the wiring connectors for installing...

  • It appears the bike rack you referenced could fit the 2013 Hyundai Tucson, though the manufacturer does not offer a vehicle specific fit guide. Instead, the bike rack is said to fit a wide range of vehicles. We do not carry that particular bike rack nor would I recommend going with that rack due to what appears to be rather flimsy construction. For a more durable rack that is also economically priced I would recommend going with the Thule Passage Bike Carrier, part # TH910XT for...

  • The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13240 has been confirmed to fit all models of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson. I spoke with my contact at Curt to ensure that the dual exhaust would not be an issue, and my contact did not see any issues that would be caused by the dual exhaust. I have linked the installation instructions for the hitch for you. Keep in mind that this hitch requires stabilization straps # 18050 be used with all non-trailer loads, such as bike racks and cargo carriers.

  • For all of your alternative framed bikes, I recommend going with a platform style rack like the Saris Freedom # SA4414B. This will be a great rack for you and all your passengers! If your Electra's have fat bike tires you can change out the wheel cradles for fat bike wheel cradles # SA4419. The neat thing about the Freedom is the way the cradles pivot and slide up and down the central masts. This allows the rack to grab your bike's tube at the perfect angle. To secure your...

  • The first thing your trailer will need to add electric drum brakes are brake mounting flanges (unless they are already on the axle). Brake mounting flanges are what hold the brake assembly on the axle. A trailer axle rated for 2,000 pounds should have a diameter of 1-1/2 inches to 1-3/4 inches. For a compatible flange in this diameter range use # T0872400 sold in quantities of 1. Welding on flanges is a precision job and requires a special jig and someone with experience in...

  • The correct components you need to complete a Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack are part # TH7602-TH7602 for the crossbars and feet and fit kit part # THKIT4062. Right now the # THKIT4029 is only a fit for the Santa Fe. Thule wouldn't make a separate fit kit without a reason for it so the two fit kits would not be interchangeable.

  • The easiest way for me to explain how to bleed the brakes is to have you check out the video I attached that shows the method we use here to bleed trailer brakes. To actuate the actuator to move the fluid through the lines on your coupler you could use a large pair of vice grips to attach to the front of the ball coupler and then use the leverage the vice grips create to push in slowly.

  • The most economical trunk mounted bike rack that we carry for your 2010 Hyundai Tucson is the Thule Passage 2 Bike Rack, # TH910XT. This bike rack includes many of the same features as the more expensive bike racks like the anti-sway cradles and Thules Fit Dial system while remaining at an affordable price. I have attached the installation instructions as well as a demonstration video of this bike rack for you to check out. I have also attached a link to all of the trunk mounted...

  • For your 2017 Hyundai Tucson I recommend a Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack # TH7602B-TH7602B for black bars or # TH7602-TH7602 for silver bars. The Thule AeroBlade bars have a wing shape for less wind resistance and noise compared to round or square bars. They are made of light weight aluminum for both strength and corrosion resistance. And the Edge versions look more like a factory roof rack than other models and the bars don't stick out on the sides! The only other part you...

  • The spare tire carrier I recommend that can be mounted to your trailer angle iron is the Redline Spare Tire Carrier, part # 413200. This is a weld-on installation so you can mount it to your trailer in an location you have the room. This carrier works with 5, 6, and 8-lug wheels.

  • In instances when the tail lights are obscured by anything placed on the carrier, we recommend using a light kit. We offer part # 20174 which works with several of our most popular cargo carriers such as part # 40101, #59502, #59507, #63153 and #63155. We also offer light kit part # 52014 which works with cargo carriers like part # 52017 and # 52018. As far as the license plate goes, a bracket and light combo like part # LPL55CB could be used. The light could be wired into...

  • We have 2 wiring harnesses that are designed to work with your 2015 Hyundai Tucson with LEDs but the # 56101 you referenced is not a fit. I called my contact at Curt and they told me that the # 56101 has not been test fit on a 2015 Tucson so they cannot verify it will work. I recommend the Curt Upgraded Circuit Protected Tail Light w Converter Hardwire Kit, part # 56146KIT. This kit will work with LED lights on your Tucson and your trailer if it has LEDs as well. The kit includes...

  • You are having the same problem many people face when trying to find a good place to secure their kayaks and canoes bow and stern to their vehicle. I do have a solution for you. I recommend the Thule Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs, part # TH530. You simply attach your bow and stern tie-downs to these Quick Loops and close them under the vehicle hood or hatch. I recommend the Thule The Stacker, part # TH830. This is a post-style carrier that will allow you to...

  • The motorcycle carrier you would want is the part # K2TMC201. This carrier should work on both your vehicles and would work well with your 2002 Yamaha YZ250F. For your 2010 Hyundai Tucson you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 87612. The Mazda CX-5 didn't come out till 2013 so I am assuming that is the model you have. It is the only vehicle between the two you mentioned that has enough tongue weight capacity when used with a hitch like the part # 87623 that has a 525 lb...
