2014 Ford Flex Questions and Answers


  • Can a Trailer be Backed Up when Using Reese SC Weight Distribution
  • Both are correct. Backing up at tight angles or on uneven terrain could cause problems and the bars should be removed from the weight distribution system. But backing up relatively straight, slight turns are fine, and on relatively flat terrain would not be a problem. The Reese SC systems are very versatile. The narrow brackets and wide range along the trailer frame they can be mounted allow them to fit trailers that other systems will not fit. I have included a couple of helpful links...

  • Difference Between the Blue Ox Attachment Tabs part # BX62-3468 and part # BX62-3469
  • The difference between the Blue Ox Attachment tabs part # BX62-3468 and part # BX62-3469 is the length of the portion that slides into the base plate. The # BX62-3468 is much shorter. The two are not interchangeable. Check out the picture I attached for more clarification.

  • Replacement Removable Tab Assembly Recommendation for a Blue Ox Base Plate on a 2014 Ford Flex
  • The Blue Ox Attachment Tab Assembly # BX62-3469 would be the correct part for you since you are looking for replacement tab assemblies. These are sold individually so you will need to order a quantity of 2. These are compatible with the Blue Ox Base Plate kit part # BX2645 that is the compatible base plate kit for your 2014 Ford Flex.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a 2014 Ford Flex with Class I Trailer Hitch
  • None of the trailer hitch mount cargo carriers that fit a Class I trailer hitch can fold up. There are currently several options for Class I hitches: # C18145 # 6500 # C18110 # 52017 Out of these options I recommend # 6500 because the rise in the shank and the ability to adjust how close the basket part is to the vehicle will allow you to keep the carrier out of the exhaust path. If you want a folding carrier you would need to remove the factory installed hitch and install a...

  • Recommendation for a Hitch and 4 Bike Rack for 2014 Ford Flex
  • I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch, # 75679, for your 2014 Ford Flex. This 2 inch hitch receiver will bolt directly to your Flex's frame with no welding required. It has a tongue weight rating of 400 pounds and a maximum gross trailer weight rating of 4000 pounds. If you are still in the market for a four bicycle rack, the Pro Series Eclipse, # 63124, is quite popular with our Ford Flex owners. This economical option offers a tilting upright mast that will allow you access to...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Ford Flex
  • I checked with Hollywood Racks and the Hollywood Racks Express 3 Bike Carrier # HRE3 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford Flex. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point.

  • Where Does a Brake Controller Plug Into on a 2014 Ford Flex with Factory Tow Package
  • The port to plug in brake controller wiring harness # 3034-P on a 2014 Ford Flex is located behind a trim panel in the center console, passenger side. Gently pry off the panel by locating the notch on the bottom center of the panel. You will find the connector behind the panel. I have linked the instructions for you that include pictures showing this.

  • Will a Surco Safari Basket Fit a 2014 Ford Flex
  • Surco only has fit information for the Ford Flex up to the 2012 model year. If the 2014 happens to be exactly the same then you will actually need Safari Basket # SPS4560 and installation adapter # SPCH100 according to Surco. This adapter fits in channels in the side rails on the Ford Flex. If your Flex has raised side rails then you could use a Safari basket with the clamp-on adapters such as # SPS4550-1101. But you may need to go with a wider basket to ensure fit such as # SPS5060-1101...

  • How to Pick Out a Weight Distribution System for a 2002 Coleman Westlake Pop Up
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow, this figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. It sounds like your unloaded tongue weight is 400 lbs, which most likely the Pro Series RB3 Weight Distribution System part # PS49582 that you referenced would work since...

  • Can I use Shorter Rhino Rack Crossbars than what is Recommended for my 2014 Ford Flex
  • If you are looking for a cleaner look for your 2014 Ford Flex, I would recommend the Whispbar Flush Bar Roof Rack, # WB-S28 with Custom Fit Kit # WB-K576 . These crossbars slide inside the SmartFoot tower so there is no overhang.

  • For a 2014 Ford Flex Will the Trailermate Custom Tow Light Wiring Kit Isolate Voltage From an RV
  • The best option for isolating the RV wiring from the wiring of your 2014 Ford Flex is to use a magnetic set of tow lights. I recommend using the Roadmaster Deluxe Magnetic Tow Lights # RM-2100. This wiring kit will keep the RV lighting completely separate from your 2014 Ford Flex wiring. If this is your primary concern this is the best option that we currently offer for the 2014 Ford Flex. You may also be interested in the Roadmaster Deluxe Anti-Scratch Pads for the Road master lights...

  • Recommended Lightweight Cargo Carrier for 2014 Ford Flex
  • We offer two different lightweight aluminum cargo carriers, the Curt folding 19x60 inch model, part # C18100 or the 20x47 inch MaxxTow you referenced, part # MT70108. Both carriers weigh just under 30 lbs and are the lightest cargo carriers we offer. Either carrier would be compatible with your Flex, but since you mentioned that you were more interested in a 60 inch wide carrier, the Curt model might be your best bet. Since the C18100 is rather long, it is important that when the carrier...
