Now, this bike rack is designed to work with 1-1/4 inch and 2-inch hitches, and the first thing I want to show you on this is the tilt-away feature because with our platform style here, we can tilt-away our bike rack with our bike still on there. I'm just going to move these wheel hooks out of the way and hang onto them to be able to tilt the bike rack down. I'll push on this pedal with my foot and tilt that away. Now, with our bike in this position, we can open up our hatch. One thing I do want you to note is that with this bike we do have to move our handle bars out of the way just a little bit before they make contact there, so what I'm going to do is push the bike a bit, and we can clear that hatch there.





Kia Sedona Questions

  • I spoke to my contact at Yakima and she confirmed that the weight capacity for the Yakima Hold Up 4 # Y02443-2 is 60 lbs per bike with an overall capacity of 200 lbs.

  • I did some research and the Sedona is Short Wheel Base -SWB. If it is a Sedona LX or a Sedona EX it is a Long Wheel Base-LWB. The best way to be sure is to measure. Measure from the center of the front wheel to the center of the rear wheel. If the measurement is 113.8 inches, it is SWB. If the measurement is 118.9 inches, it is LWB. The hitch for SWB models is the Curt hitch, part # 13349. There are two hitches for the LWB, Hidden Hitch part # 70761 and Draw-Tite part # 75421.

  • Ideally, the tongue weight of your trailer would fall into the center of the effective range of the weight distribution system you choose. Instead of using the dry weight, we use the fully-loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer to determine which W/D system to use. The weight of anything carried in the truck bed behind the rear axle also needs to be considered as tongue weight. You can use a scale at a truck stop to determine your actual tongue weight by following...

  • A spacer or hub-centric ring is sometimes used on passenger vehicles, but our resident wheel and tire guru tells me that they aren't needed for use on trailers, due to the weight load a trailer wheel will be under. If you feel you need them, you can do a Google search on 'Hub Centric Rings' and you'll find plenty of them. If you decide to use them, I'd avoid the plastic rings and use the aluminum ones.

  • In order to install the Timbren rear suspension enhancement system # TDVR05096, the first thing you will need to do is lower the rear control arm. In order to lower the rear control arm to remove the coil spring, remove the inner control arm bolt by loosening the outer bolt and allow a jack to slowly lower the control arm to release tension on the spring. See the diagram I included. Another way to lower the control arm is to remove the wheel, and the outer control arm...

  • The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch, # RP66073, has a tongue weight capacity of between 400 lbs. and 800 lbs. so it is at the upper end of the weight that you will be carrying. The drawback to this is that it may produce a slightly stiffer ride than a system that is rated for something like 200 lbs. to 600 lbs. For your 2006 Kia Sedona towing a 3,000 lbs. camper I would recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch, # RP66072, which has a 200 lbs. to...

  • You are definitely on the right track. You will first want to install a wiring harness with a 4-way flat connector like the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118410, that you referenced. You could simply run lengths of wires from a vehicle side 7-way socket and wire the socket yourself, but that would involve splicing into your vehicles tail light wiring, which I would not recommend. That route would also be very time consuming and tedious. Instead, after you install the plug-in...

  • I went out to the warehouse and measured one of the # PR4 Double Eye Leaf Springs and the related parts that we carry. The spring pack is 1-9/16 inch thick, not including the centering bolt and nut. Each layer is approximately 3/8 inch thick. The 2-3/8 inch Round Trailer U-Bolts (Qty 2), item # SP01-040, are 5-1/2 inches long. The total thickness of axle, 2-3/8 inches and spring pack will be right at 3 inches. You will need to add the thickness of the spring seat, our spring...

  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about hitch # 13703 and he said that you can install the side brackets on the outside of an I-beam frame by turning them around. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch can be bolted or welded on. If you choose to weld it on the welding should be done by a qualified professional.

  • To install the Tekonsha P-3 Trailer Brake Controller, # 90195, on your 2009 Kia Sedona, there are a couple of wiring harnesses you will need. First, if the vehicle does not already have a 4-Way flat trailer connector, you will need to install Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118410. I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing a typical installation for reference. With the 4-Way installed you would then need a 7 and 4 Way Installation Kit, #...

  • If the wiring harness you have is the correct harness for your Sedona and is working intermittently, you can most likely solve the issue by doing a bit of troubleshooting. Check the ground wire connection first. Make sure it is attached to a clean metal surface that is free of corrosion, paint and primer. Next check the connectors to make sure none of the pins in the connectors are bent and that the connectors are fully seated an the locking tabs are engaged fully. If you cannot...

  • Sounds like the problem could be somewhere in the socket or bulb of your trailer if when you move the bulb in the socket it works temporarily. Almost makes me think there is corrosion in the sockets. Or the other most likely solution would be that the grounds are not adequate for the lights. I would recommend you check that the light assemblies are attached to a clean metal surface. Corrosion here will cause problems and should be cleaned as needed. Since you tested the...

  • To hold 4 bikes with the Bike Adapter For Draw-Tite and Reese Cargo Carriers, item # 6505, you would need to load the bikes with the handle bars in alternating directions, two on each side of the bar, and then use tie downs, item # 05605, to attach the bikes to the carrier and support bar. If you need to carry 4 bikes a hitch mounted bike carrier (see link) would most likely be a better option for you. This option will keep the bikes form contacting each other and causing damage...

  • The tire chains that would be best for you will depend on how you were going to use them. If the chains are going to sit in the rear of the van and will only be used once or twice a year or for emergency purposes, an inexpensive set of chains like the Glacier Twist-Link, part # PWPLC1142 you mentioned would be a good choice. Rubber Adjusters like part # PW100 are also recommended. Glacier Chains are covered by a 90 day warranty. If you will driving in areas that consistently...

  • The Reese Mini 350 Weight Distribution for Fleetwood/Coleman trailers you referred to, part # RP66041 has been discontinued and is no longer available. For trailers with lower tongue weights under 400 lbs, Reese recommends their Light Duty Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control, part # 66557.
