Nissan Pathfinder Questions

  • You can convert surge brakes to an electric over hydraulic braking system. To do this, you will need an electric over hydraulic actuator and a brake controller. For an electric over hydraulic actuator, I recommend looking at the Carlisle HydraStar units. If your trailer has drum brakes, you will want part # HBA-10. If your trailer has disc brakes, then you will want part # HBA16. I have also attached a link to all of our electric over hydraulic actuators for you to check out...

  • It is possible to install a transmission cooler and bypass the factory transmission cooler on your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder. This is not recommended by manufacturers, but it is possible. You will want to get the largest transmission cooler that will fit your vehicle. I do not know the area that you have available to install a transmission cooler, but if it will fit, I would recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, part # D13504. The overall dimensions...

  • You could wire the Tow Ready Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole # 30717 and just have the light functions on your tow vehicle without connecting the other wires. But I would be very cautious about not doing so for several reasons. The first reason is safety. The general rule for towing trailers with brakes, is that if the Gross Trailer Weight is half of the Gross Vehicle Weight, it is recommended to use a brake controller and have brakes on the trailer. Not being able to activate...

  • The 4.80 X 12 is the size of the tire and the 4 on 4 is the bolt pattern of the wheel. The bolt pattern means it is a 4 hole wheel and the distance from the center of one hole to the center of the hole directly across from it is 4 inches. Any wheel with a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern and a large enough pilot hole diameter will fit your trailer. You will need to check the weight capacity of your axle and get the correct tire size that will be rated above the weight capacity of your...

  • According to my research, your vehicle is capable of towing 6000 lb Trailer Weight/ 600 lb Tongue weight if it is equipped with the V6 motor, or 7000 lb Trailer/ 700 lb tongue weight if equipped with the V8 motor. The use of a weight distribution system will not increase these towing capacities. For the purposes of choosing a weight distribution system, you will need to determine the fully loaded and ready to tow trailer and tongue weight. The weight of anything stored in the...

  • There are some large rooftop cargo baskets that can mount to your roof side rails without the need for crossbars. Surco offers their 60 x 50 x 5 inch # SPS5060-1101, which weighs 34 lbs, and the 50 x 45 x 5 inch version # SPS4550-1101, which weighs 32 lbs. I have included a link to our department page for all of our cargo baskets where you can see offerings from ten different brands. Most other roof baskets require crossbars for their installation.

  • Due to the profile of the Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13126, most of the hitch crossbar is recessed under the rear fascia of a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Therefore this hitch does not include a mounting location for trailer wiring. Since there is limited space on the hitch crossbar, a mounting bracket is not included on the hitch. Additionally, the rear fascia has to be trimmed to complete the installation of this hitch. I have included a photos showing this hitch installed...

  • On your 2008 Nissan Pathfinder the Towing Relay 2 fuse is the brown relay, like the one included in kit # C57000.This relay will activate the 12-volt power circuit on the 7-Way connector. This relay is located in a fuse box under the hood, next to the vehicles battery. Next to the brown relay will be Towing Relay 1 (blue) which should be installed to activate the running lights and signal for the 4-pin towing harness. To charge a trailer battery from the 7-Way you should...

  • The Tekonsha Brake Controller Wiring Adapter, part # 3050-P is indeed compatible with your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. The adapter is compatible with Tekonsha Brake Controllers like the Prodigy P2, part # 90885 or the P3, part # 90195. The harness will plug into the connector located near the top of the emergency brake pedal. Look for a wiring harness with a white tag on it that that reads Trailer Brake Connection.

  • There could be a couple of issues with the trailer wiring on your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder. Since you have determine that the trailer lights work on other vehicles, we will need to look at the vehicle for the problem. My first instinct is that you have a bad ground connection. The CURT wiring harness you are using has a white ground wire with a ring terminal on the end. This ring terminal will need to be attached to a clean, bare metal surface. If there is corrosion or paint...

  • Both of these roof boxes are very nice and would work great for you. The Thule Force, part # TH628 is a 16-cu ft box and the interior dimension is 70 inches long x 34 inches wide x 13-1/2 inches tall. This has a cargo weight capacity of 110 lbs and will carry skis or a snowboard with a maximum length of 68 inches. This box weighs just 39 lbs. The Sonic XL, part # TH635B is my preference and what I would recommend. This box has 17-cu ft of cargo space and measures 81 inches...

  • If your 2014 Nissan Pathfinder has the factory tow package then the correct 7-way wiring harness kit is # 118273. This kit includes the required relays and connects to the vehicle behind the rear bumper. If you want a 4-pole harness or do not have a factory 7-way then the correct kit is # 118670 which also includes the relays and shares the same connection point under the bumper. Some Pathfinders without the tow package may not have the relay box in the back and so this might...

  • When you install the Draw Tite hitch # 24877 on a 2012-2013 Volkswagen Beetle you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust. This is a pretty easy process and is almost standard hitch install protocol. There won't be any drilling or hole enlargement to install the hitch though. For more info check out the installation instructions I attached. The hitch will be out of sight for the most part. Unless someone was really looking for it they wouldn't notice it.

  • Based on the figures you have provided, I would recommend using a weight distribution system if the trailer hitch on your vehicle is rated for weight distribution. Weight distribution is recommended if the trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the tow vehicles weight. Your 2012 Nissan Pathfinder probably weighs in the ball park of 5,000 to 5,500 lbs. Before choosing a weight distribution system, you will want to make sure your trailer hitch is rated for weight distribution. Your...

  • The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class III - Efficient, item # D13502, could be used to replace the original ATF cooler in the radiator on your 2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4.0 liter. I would recommend four things. First, measure to be sure that the cooler you select will fit in front of the radiator or air conditioning condenser on your vehicle. Second, select the largest capacity cooler that will fit in this area. The largest 8000 series...

  • You can certainly replace all of the incandescent bulbs in your tail lights and marker lights with LED bulbs. You will simply need to determine what type of bulb each light will require and purchase a compatible LED bulb. If you would like to tell me the types of bulbs that are in your trailer lights, I would be happy to make some recommendations. LED bulbs offer many improvements over incandescent (standard) bulbs. First, they are typically brighter than incandescent bulbs....

  • The connector on wiring harness # 118266 is a 7-Way, 6 pins around the perimeter and one in the center. You will not want to cut and splice, especially color for color because 9 times out of 10 it will not be correct. This is because there is no standard for wiring color/function. Even with the factory tow package 4-Way you will still need the correct jumper harness and relays to make everything in the 7-Way fully functional. The 7-Way part and the harness attached to it should...

  • According to my research, the Jayco 1007 has a dry weight of 1820 lbs and a GVWR of 2550. This means that with empty propane and water tanks and completely empty of gear, your tent trailer weighs 1820 lbs. Once tanks are full and gear is added, the trailer can weigh no more than 2550 lbs. This places your tongue weight somewhere in the range between 200-400 lbs. To this figure, you will need to add the weight of any gear stowed behind the rear axle in the cargo area of your Pathfinder. Weight...
