Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Kia Sedona - Curt

Today on our 2005 Kia Sedona, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, Class III, part number C13340. Here's what it looks like once it's installed. You can see it's a nice, round, tubular design. It's going to sit up flush against the bottom side of our bumper. Got these nice flat safety chain loops with fairly large diameter holes. That's going to allow most of your tow hooks to be able to fit thought there easily.



K Source Universal Clip-On Towing Mirror Installation - 2005 Kia Sedona

Speaker1: Today on our 2005 Kia Sedona we'll be doing a test fit on the K Source Clip-On Towing Mirror. Part number KS3891. It offers us a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park or even back up while towing a trailer. The mirror itself can be adjusted to most angles, we've got our up and down, side to side, and we even have diagonal. By simply removing the Phillips Head screw behind the mirror at the back, we can rotate it to the vertical position. It's not going to interfere with the operation of our factory mirror and we can even still rotate it in. I'm here on the passenger side of my Kia Sedona and to begin our test fit we'll need to first turn our mirror over, and we need to make sure that each one of our four tabs here is open up.

Kia Sedona Questions

  • 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.

  • By 6 bolt rear, I am assuming you are speaking of the number of attachment points for the hitch. The exhaust configuration is different on the Base model versus the EX or the LX model, so the hitches are designed differently to fit around the exhaust. The base Sedona model will use 7 bolts to attach the hitch to the vehicle, 3 on the drivers side and 4 on the passenger side. For the base model, use the Draw-Tite # 75551, the Hidden Hitch # 87443 or the Curt # 13349. I would...

  • We offer a replacement 4-pole flat trailer wiring harness for the 2015 Kia Sedona that has the factory tow package connectors. Curt harness # C56151 plugs in behind the underbody panel on the rear driver's-side corner as shown in the linked video. You will make two plug-in connections at this OEM wiring, install the supplied 10-amp fuse and mount the converter box using the included double-sided tape. This 4-pole trailer connector will then provide stop, turn and taillight signals...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • We can help you with both a trailer hitch and a Thule Apex Swing bike rack for your wife's 2015 Kia Sedona. For the hitch I suggest the Curt # C13115 because it offers the same capacity as the other options but will save you a few dollars. Its installation will be identical to the other hitches available; please refer to the linked video. All hitch options are shown on the linked page, for reference. The Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9027 is indeed available from etrailer.com...

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • How to proceed from here will depend on what you've completed up to this point. If you've installed a 4-pole already, you'll just need our Brake Controller Install Kit, part # ETBC7. The kit contains everything needed to install the controller, with the exception of the brake controller itself and a functional 4-pole trailer connector on the Sedona. Since I'm not 100 percent positive what you've already completed, I'll start from scratch, and you can disregard the parts that don't...

  • 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...
