2010 Hyundai Santa Fe Questions and Answers


  • Does a Weight Distribution Hitch Allow More Tongue Weight on the Ball
  • The physics of a weight distribution system can be a little confusing. But, basically the spring bars in the system push weight forward and backward so that the weight is more evenly pushed to the front and rear axles of the tow vehicle and the trailer axles. The actual tongue weight on the ball may not change significantly. Using a weight distribution system does not allow the vehicle to tow any more weight, but it does allow the hitch to carry more weight. The towing capacity of the...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe with Factory Tow Package
  • For the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe with the factory tow package, you would need the Custom Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118258. The harness would plug into the connector that is located underneath the vehicle inside the lower body panels on the driver side next to the muffler. I would also recommend a mounting bracket, part # 18144 or part # 38095, and it would be a good idea to use dielectric grease like part # 11755 between the connectors. The grease will protect the plugs from moisture...

  • Options on How to Fix a Loose 2 Inch Ball Mount
  • I have a couple different options on ways to fix a loose ball mount. The Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin, # SHP2061, dramatically reduces any movement or vibration between your hitch and hollow shank ball mount. The No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, # 93347, wedges itself between the receiver and ball mount to take up play and eliminate rattle. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, helps eliminate rattle and sway within your hitch receiver.
