2014 BMW X5 Questions and Answers


  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 BMW X5
  • Let's first start with a hitch, for that I would recommend the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75600. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. Now for trailer wiring you would want the Tow Ready Harness part # 119190KIT. This is a hardwire option that would be quite a bit cheaper than what BMW quoted you. Install video attached for this as well. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and...

  • What to Do if the Prodigy RF Brake Controller Will not Pair with a 2014 BMW X5
  • If your 2014 BMW X5 has a 7-Way trailer connector already then you will not need any additional parts. You may not have to have a second vehicle in order to pair the Prodigy RF # 90250. It may pair just fine on its own. It is possible that if you do have a pairing problem you could use electrical tape to tape off the pin in the 5 oclock position on the back of the RF unit and that might work for you. If it doesn't then it is possible that you will need an adapter, # 20142, especially...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2014 BMW X5 with LED Taillights
  • Yes, the Tow Ready wiring harness part # 119190KIT that you referenced would work well on your 2014 BMW X5 with LED taillights. This harness is designed to fit vehicles with LED and incandescent bulbs. I attached an install video as well as installation instructions for you to check out.

  • Solution for Backup Sensor Alerts on a 2014 BMW X5 When Carrying a Bike Rack
  • Yes it would, your 2014 BMW X5 will disable the backup alert system when it senses a trailer connected to the trailer wiring. So the load resistors in the 7-Way to 5-Way and 4-Way Trailer Adapter # TR20141 that you referenced would trick the vehicle into thinking a trailer is connected and and the sensors would not activate because of the brake controller. Another trick that people use with your vehicle is to tape over the sensors with masking tape.

  • Recommendation for Roof Rack on 2014 BMW X5 that has a Greater Crossbar Spread for Added Stability
  • I recommend going with our Thule Roof Rack that includes the Thule AeroBlade Load Bars, # THAR53, and the Thule Rapid Crossroad Roof Mounted Railing Foot Pack, # TH450R. These load bars can have a maximum bar spread of 44 inches from center to center. I have attached a video of this roof rack being installed on a 2013 BMW X5 to give you a general idea of the process.

  • Weight Capacity of Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack for 2014 BMW X5 # RRVA137S-2 and # RRSX024
  • Roof rack manufacturers like Rhino-Rack design racks that will fit more than one vehicle and naturally there are variances in how much weight any given vehicle can handle. In the case of the 2014 BMW X5 the maximum safe weight load for the rack consisting of parts # RRVA137S-2 and # RRSX024 is 165-lbs, unless your owner's manual or dealership advise otherwise. In another application on a different vehicle this rack may be rated for more weight, but in any case the lowest-rated item in a...

  • Will Installing a Class III Trailer Hitch Void the Warranty on a 2014 BMW X5
  • If your dealer is doing the trailer hitch installation then prior to having it installed you could ask them. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually caused the probĀ­lem in question. I have included a link to a video showing an installation...

  • Rooftop Ski Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 BMW X5 M Sport Package with Factory Flush Mount Rails
  • For a roof rack system on your 2014 BMW- X5 with the M Sport package, that includes a flushmount roof rail you would need the Thule Aero Blade bar system to establish a set of load bars for using a ski carrier. The AeroBlade bar system is composed of the AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB47, the Thule foot pack # TH460R, and the Thule Fit Kit # THKIT4003 that attached the foot pack to your rails. Once you have established a roof rack system you can then use a ski rack. I recommend the Thule...
