Toyota Tundra Questions

  • The brake controller port for the 2015 Toyota Tundra is located behind the section of the dashboard with the tow/haul button. To reach the connector you will need to locate the notch in the access panel in the center of the dash near the driver's side. Using a trim panel puller like # ALL648544, carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. You will find the mating connector behind this portion of your dashboard. The correct harness for your 2015...

  • The best rated and most popular 2-5/16 inch trailer coupler lock that we carry is the Maximum Security Universal Trailer Coupler Lock, # DT25013. This lock features a pick resistant lock cylinder and dual action, bolt-blocked locking system that locks both arms instead of just one. If you wanted even more security you could use a Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock, # WI490, on one of your trailer wheels. This wheel lock fits tires up to 28 inches in diameter and 9 inches wide...

  • A trailer of the size you mention would either use a 2 inch or a 2-5/16 inch ball. A 2 inch ball can have a capacity up to 8000 lbs, while the capacity of a 2-5/16 inch ball can range between 6,000 and 30,000 lbs. The 2-5/16 inch ball would be more likely, but I couldn't say for sure without knowing the weight of the trailer. Using a tri-ball mount like the # 45325 you referenced might be your best bet. The required ball size should be stamped into the metal on the trailer...

  • Yes, we do offer a quick-connect brake controller adapter for Toyota and Lexus vehicles, part # 3017-P from Tekonsha. This fits all of their brake controllers, such as the popular and reliable P2, part # 90885. This adapter harness has a flat plug on the controller end and a square plug on the vehicle end, as shown in the linked photo, and it fits the Tundra for model years up to 2015.

  • I did some calculations on the tire sizes and found that the difference between the 175/80R13 and the 155/80R13 is pretty small. The 175/80 is 24 inches inches tall whereas the 155/80 is 22.7 inches tall for a difference of 1.3 inches total, but that difference needs to be split since the overall diameter is split since the wheel rotates on the axle. So basically the wheel will take up an additional .65 inches of your fender well. The width difference is pretty small at...

  • For sag from towing a trailer the best recommendation I can make is actually a weight distribution system. Suspension enhancement will help level your truck while towing. But the advantage to a weight distribution system is that it levels the vehicle by distributing the tongue weight of the trailer up to the front axle of the vehicle as well. This will help greatly with handling and braking, especially in an emergency situation. The best way to pick out a weight distribution...

  • You can potentially use new tires and wheels on your trailer as long as there is clearance all around the existing tires for the larger size. Going to a 13 inch like with # AM31985 you will need at least 1.8 inches clearance above the existing tires and 2.095 inches at the back between the trailer and tire for the wider size. Trailer tire and wheel combo # AM31985 is a radial tire with steel wheel, 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. It is a load range D rated for 1,610 pounds at 65 psi....

  • The factory installed brake controller connector should be a white plug located on the left side under the drivers side dash on your 2005 Toyota Tundra Dual Cab. I have included a photo and a video that shows the location of the plug on another Toyota Tundra at the 8 second mark. This plug may not be there if your vehicle did not come with the factory tow package. The Multi-Plug, # 20137, is designed as a replacement if your vehicle came with a factory tow package that included...

  • It sounds like you have the factory brake controller harness so all you will have to do is plug the one end into the truck and attach the wires from the other end to the brake controller using butt connectors like # 05731-5. Your factory harness most likely will plug into the same place as the aftermarket # 3040-P. The plug-in port should be located under the dash, left of the steering column taped to another harness near/above the emergency brake pedal. I have linked the instructions...

  • The Access TonnoSport Soft Roll-Up Tonneau Cover that fits your 2014 Toyota Tundra Crew Max with 5-1/2-foot bed and deck rails is part # A22050239. Since this cover installs inside the bed rails it will be compatible with the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TA21611-02 since this rack installs on the top of the bed rails and is secured in the stake pockets. I have linked an installation video that illustrates the way this rack system mounts to your truck bed rails.

  • I did a little research and found that your 2015 Outdoor Wind River 250RDSW travel trailer has a gross weight capacity of 8,700 pounds. This would make the tongue weight 870 to 1,305 pounds. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Based...

  • If the incline is slight and the gravel isn't super deep the Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 would work. But if you have a steep driveway and/or deep gravel the wheels of the Valet are going to spin. In the video I attached a link to we show the unit being used in gravel. We also show it being used to move up a relatively steep incline. This does also have an internal brake that is demoed in the video I mentioned. When you stop cranking the handle the brake activates.

  • If your 2008 Toyota Tundra has the factory 7-way connector in the back, then you should be able to plug in a brake controller adapter under the dash of the Tundra. Does the connector provided by the manufacturer look like the Universal Brake Control Wiring Adapter, part # 3040-S. If so, then you will just need to connect the wires coming out of the back of the Draw-Tite Activator I, part # 5100, to the proper wires on your factory supplied harness, and plug in the adapter. The...

  • I have a solution for you, but it's not from Longview. I did some checking and the 2016 Toyota Tundra mirrors are the exact same as the 2015 Tundra mirrors so the CIPA Towing mirror part # CM11300 will fit and work great as a towing mirror. I even looked up the SR5 models of trucks and they use the same mirror. Currently there are no Longview options.

  • You can certainly use the Air Lift Compressor Kit, # AL25592, with the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs, # F2245. I spoke with my contacts at Air Lift and Firestone to confirm that it would work. The Air Lift compressor kit and the Ride-Rite both use 1/4 inch air lines and fittings so they are compatible with each other. I have attached the installation instructions for the Air Lift compressor kit for you to check out. I would also recommend picking up the Air Lift Air Hose...

  • We do have the Pollak 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket, # HM40975, if it is just the plug part that is broken on your 2007 Toyota Tundra. If the wiring harness is damaged, you could use the 4 Foot Pigtail Wiring Harness, # PK11998, to replace the area that is broken. The wiring configuration for this harness can be found on the product page in the Specs section.

  • Yes, the # 5100 and # 3040-P brake controller will work after the vehicle specific wiring adapter is wired to the brake controller wires and plugged in to the connector stored near the vehicles emergency brake pedal under the dash, if your Tundra has a factory installed hitch and 7-way connector. If your Tundra does not have the factory installed options the brake controller will have to be hard wired to the vehicle and you will have to run wires and install a 4-way connector,...

  • It sounds like you have an intermittent short somewhere in your braking system. The readings you are seeing are correct, because the short is intermittent. An intermittent problem can be very difficult to find, but your best bet is to physically examine the brake circuit on your trailer, from the connector all the way to the brake magnets. Look for a pinched wire, or cracked or worn wire insulation that would allow the copper conductor to intermittently contact the trailer...

  • I would start by inspecting the connector on your trailer and the vehicle to make sure there is not corrosion in the connector which could be causing a bad or weak connection. If there is corrosion in the trailer side connector, you would need to replace it with 7-way Connector, part # A7WCB. For the replacement vehicle side connector, you would need Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole, part # 30717. For future use, I would recommend using Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, part...
