It looks like you ordered this for a 2016 Ford F-250. Sometimes newer Ford pickups have trouble powering LED light-up accessories such as this lighted hitch cover. They will either experience intermittent fast blinking of the lights in the hitch cover or an error code on the dash. If that is what you are experiencing you can add load resistors part # P230004A-2

to the stop/turn green/yellow wires of the hitch cover.

What can I say... E Trailer is the first place I always go when I am looking for anything to do that I need for my trailer or hitch for my vehicle. E Trailer always seems to have what I am looking for. This cover when received was so much more than what was described. The size is great. Colors and shine wonderful. I can't wait for my husband to open this on Christmas. We have had other covers damaged and stolen ... We will definitely have to keep an eye on this one. GREAT JOB E TRAILER!!!! You always come thru. 590106

The time it took to ship was great And it looks awesome on the back of my SUV The only problem i'm having is the break lights are not working on the eyes but that might be a wiring issue Other than that over all I am very happy If I see something else I want I will order again 475447


Comments

Thanks for sending in your product review! The eyes of the Skull hitch cover you purchased should illuminate with the brakes and when the running/headlights are switched on. The eyes wont illuminate with the turn signals.If the eyes arent illuminating with the brake pedal, youll need to do a bit of troubleshooting to see if the problem lies in your trailer wiring harness or with the hitch cover. Unplug the hitch cover, and use a circuit tester on the pins of the trailer connector that are fed by the green and the yellow wires. Those pins should show voltage when the brake pedal is pressed. If they dont, the trailer wiring harness is defective. If you do see voltage on those pins, the hitch cover is defective. If the hitch cover is defective, please give our Customer Service folks a call at 800-298-8924.

My wife's friends have the skull on their trucks,so I ordered her one. It came today and it is bigger than I thought it would be, which is a plus.I looked at the back of it and it was all open.The wires,bulbs and screws were all exposed. I made a cover out of a plastic laundry jug and screwed it on. Holes were there to install cover.Maybe overkill, but I thought about salt damage in winter and water. So I installed it and we both like it a lot. 417800

Looks cute and only took minutes to install with a plug converting the 6 prong on my truck to a 4 prong. Just wish the eyes were just a little brighter. Etrailer.com has great customer service staying in contact with you from purchase to after delivery of you product. 412768

The hitch covers were nice and look to be as ordered. Could have received sooner. Overall happy with both hitch covers. 411078

I bought this scull because of the prior reviews were so good. I very happy I listened because they were right! I wanted this because One we love the look of the scull two wanted the intimidation factor to keep people of my A$$ when I'm driving with my family. To many people on their phones these days so hopefully this extra brake light will help them pay more attention in what's in front of them, which is me! Standard shipping was very quick and well packaged too. I only wish the black tube that covers the wires was longer it's about 6" short. Other than that it's exactly what I was expecting. 409228

Purchased 2 trailer hitch covers, one is a replacement of a prior purchase that I damaged backing into something and shearing off the Back Off bottom part. My fault. Obviously I enjoy this cover and get many complements regarding it. Second item is new for me and am anticipating getting commentary from my American Legion comrades due to its uniqueness. Am not currently using the items as still have the trailer ball in use at this time. 305137

It's a chrome skull w/ light-up red eyes. What's not to like? 241480



- CR-018
by:

I love my chrome skull hitch cover with the light up eyes. It is a good noticeable size, but not to big. Installation was easy. The eyes light up when the head lights are on and are even brighter when the brakes are applied. It could be even cooler if the right or left eye would blink when the right or left blinker is put on. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it and best of all, my wife hates it... 231618
