  • Cargo Carrier Comparison Rola # 59502 Vs. Pro Series Cargo Carrier
  • Both the Rola Cargo Carrier # 59502 and the Pro Series Cargo Carrier part # 63153 that you referenced would be an excellent choice. The biggest advantage I see for the Pro Series is weight. This carrier weighs 59 lbs whereas the Rola weighs 73 lbs. If the additional weight, price and slightly smaller interior dimensions aren't a problem for you I would go with the Rola. If you don't mind the less appealing looks of the Pro Series I would go with it since from a function point of view...

  • Right Brake Light Does Not Work But All Other Lights Do Work
  • Typically, because trailers use a combined system with brake lights and turn signals on the same circuit, when a turn signal works and the same side brake light does not, that is an indication of a ground problem. Basically, ground issues can appear when there is more load on a system. The brake light is a constant, bright light drawing power and can expose that weak ground. The problem is finding the ground problem source. Start by disconnecting the trailer and making sure the vehicle...

  • Where is the Factory Port for Installing a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2012 Buick Enclave
  • If you are installing a wiring harness like Tow Ready Harness # 118450 then the plug in locations are behind the tail light assemblies. Check out the install video I attached to get a better idea of how it will install. If you have a factory 7-way then you would be trying to install a Tow Ready Wiring Harness # 20119 and that plug would be right under the bumper or possibly above the spare tire.

  • Flat Towing Lighting Solution for a 2012 Buick Enclave
  • The bulb and socket kit, # RM-155, does fit the 2012 Buick Enclave. Wire length could be an issue on any vehicle. It all depends on how the wires are routed under the vehicle. Normally, unless it is a truck, the wire length is more than enough. Bulb brightness can be affected by several factors including getting the proper voltage back from the RV. The bulbs that are used are automotive bulbs (incandescents) which are not as bright compared to LEDs. What I recommend is to use the custom...

  • The common thought on transmission fluid is that it can not be kept cool enough. With that being said, if you are in an area that sees very cold winters your best bet will be to let your car run for a few minutes to not only warm the motor up but also the transmission fluid.
