  • 1-Year limited warranty


Reese has created this light-up hitch cover to look like an ordinary Chevy bowtie logo in daytime, non-braking situations. When you turn on your vehicle's tail lights or activate the brakes, the cover's unique metallic coating appears transparent, and bright red LEDs shine through. The long-lasting LEDs have 2 intensity levels. The red lights remain set at low illumination when your vehicle's tail lights are on. When you activate your brakes or turn on your hazard lights, the LEDs burn brighter to draw attention to your vehicle. The hitch cover will not flash when your turn signals are activated.


Hitch covers are fun to show off and they look cool, but they do more than just accessorize your vehicle. A hitch cover helps to keep dirt out of your receiver and deters rust, so you can easily install ball mounts and other hitch accessories when you need them. This hitch cover is a great way to protect your receiver and proclaim your loyalty to the renowned Chevy brand, all in one.


Simple Assembly

Mounting brackets for both 1-1/4" and 2" receivers are included. These 2-piece brackets attach to the back of the hitch cover face with the supplied hardware.


The 2" bracket has countersunk bolt holes that allow it to sit flush on the back of the emblem when fully assembled. There is a slot built into this bracket that allows you to pass the wiring through. The 1-1/4" bracket mounts on top of the threaded posts. Instead of passing the wires through a built-in slot, you are required to run the wires between the bracket and the emblem with this setup.


Note that the converter, which is necessary to keep the hitch cover from flashing when your turn signals are activated, can be tucked inside the assembled 2" mounting bracket. However, the module doesn't fit inside of the 1-1/4" bracket, so if you use this hitch cover on your 1-1/4" receiver, the converter will hang on the outside of the mounting bracket.

Video Transcript for Reese Hitch Covers - OEM - 86062 Review

Today, we are going to review part number 86062. This is the Reese Chevrolet LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover. Fits 1-1/4 and 2-inch hitches. This is an officially licensed 3D Chevrolet Bowtie logo, which will add a stylish touch to your vehicle. On the inside of the logo are red LEDs which will light up to give your vehicle some flash and make it more visible as well as to alert other drivers to slow down or stop when you do. It has a low illumination while you are using your tail lights and its plugged in to your four-way, and it will have a high illumination when you brake or engage your hazard lights.

They do use energy-efficient LEDs which are long lasting. The hitch cover does come with a foam gasket that will slide onto it before its installed on your hitch, and this will protect your vehicles hitch receiver from water and dirt. It does come with a- this one Ive already bolted on, the 2-inch adapter. It also comes with a 1-1/4-inch adapter with a foam gasket and the hardware to mount it on. It is a simple installation.

This hitch cover will just slide into your hitch. Lock it down with your pin and clip or your hitch lock. This will include the tubing the foam gaskets to assure a snug and rattle-free fit. Heres the foam gasket on this one, and then this wiring harness will plug in to your vehicles existing four-way plug. When you install it on there, you do need to use a pin and clip or a hitch lock, which will be sold separately.

It is made of a corrosion-resistant plastic with a metallic coating that becomes transparent when the lights are activated. Again, this will fit 1-1/4-inch and a 2-inch hitch. I want to first give you a dimension on this to give you an idea of the size. The width on this is 6 inches. The height on this would be 3-1/4 inches.

It does come with a 90-day warranty. Now, what I want to do is install it on this 2-inch hitch I have here and plug it in to give you an idea of the illumination. Basically, it has your holes here that line up. You would just slide it in, line your hole up with your hitch pin or your hitch lock, connect it so its secured into the hitch. Take this, I have a power supply here with a four-way, you would just plug it in and that would give you what your tail lights would look like. When you hit your brake or your hazard lights, it would give you a brighter look. Now, what I am going to do is turn off the overhead lights to give you an idea what it would be like in the dark. With your overhead lights off, you can now see what it would look like with your tail lights on, and when you apply your brakes or your hazard lights, that would give you the brightness. That should do it for review on part number 86062.

I just installed this on my 2015 Silverado LT. It looks great. It came with a converter which supposedly prevents the light from blinking when you have your turn signals on but I did not know how to install it. There were no directions regarding that so I removed it and simply plugged the wiring harness into my connector and it worked. It does not blink when my turn signals are on. I also purchased the locking hitch pin and it appears strong and is easy to install. See the finished products in my attached photo. 444804

It has been a year since purchasing my lighted hitch cover. It is still working fine. I am happy with my purchase.

Received this product with opened packaging. Bottom part of package was cutoff. There was a slight mark on the emblem. Decided to install it. Does not look like the light is changing intensity when the brake is applied. I installed it with the wire through the hitch and around to the plug. Installation instructions need to be clearer with regard to the gasket and wire harness. There needs to be a notch in the gasket for the wire if installed as shown in instructions as the wire bulges the gasket and does not sit flat. 574374

Just received my GMC trailer LED hitch Cover. It is an outstanding product. The quality is better than I expected. The price was fair; the only drawback For my application was the wiring harness was" too" short; for my 2500 Sierra Denali, but after a short trip to A local auto parts store to purchase An extension, the assembly was a simple PLUG and PLAY. 481029

Item came as ordered and required some assembly, but that was easy. Only issue is that I have a computerized wiring system for my trailer lights that this unit uses to power the light and it was issuing warnings about right or left directional not working properly. So if you have a vehicle that has this type of monitoring system, don't plug it in. otherwise good product. 510373

This product doesn’t work with my 2015 F-150. The issue is that it gives break light errors In my F-150 every time I push the breaks. I would not recommend this product for any new vehicles.

Mopar rams head trailer hitch exceeds my expectations. The internal illumination is very bright. Impossible to miss. I thought the battery operated switch included was extremely cute and functional. This enabled me to check the light before I installed and marked it up in case a return was necessary. The fact that the light operates on 3 functions (4 ways, turn signals and brake lights is too cool. I highly recommend it. 462950

Review from a similar Reese LED Cover in Hitch Covers


Looks great, however the wire was not long enough to reach from the hitch to the plug...which sits above the bumper on the 2010 Dodge Ram. 32104


Comments

Yah, I wish I saw this comment before I bought it for my 2013 Laramie. The wire harness is simply too short. I have to use my 4 to 5 pole adapter to make the connection work at all and then there is no room for wire management. Cant recommend it to anyone with a Ram with the factory tow options installed which place the wiring connections by the license plate. If your tow package places your wire connections below the bumper, you will likely not have a problem making the connection. With the all plastic housing though, I do not feel this product justifies a 35 dollar retail price.

Im agree with Dave,it is really not perfect fit for my Ram too. The wire is too short .I bought this 1 on feb112013.Today I receive this,when installing it find wire is not long enough to reach to adaptor.

Thanks for the input. We are following up with Reese on this one about extending the length. In the meantime, we have added an extension and a dedicated 4-pole harness to the Related Products section on this page that would solve the issue.

-- Patrick B - 3/21/2013

Comments

Have they lengthened the cord on this yet? Does it still not reach? I have a 2010 Ram and I really want this but wont buy if it cant reach.

-- comment by: Drew - 04/02/2013

As far as we know, Reese has not changed the length of the cord. I just spoke with one of my contacts over there and he confirmed that the length has not changed since production started. We have added an extension as a related product that will provide an extra 12 inches of length as a solution. See part 9653P.

  • Is Chevy Bowtie LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover Waterproof
  • The Chevy Bowtie LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover # 86062 referenced in your question features a corrosion resistant plastic construction but because it also connects to the 4-Way wiring connector on your truck I do recommend removing the cover before going in for a car wash. This isn't necessarily related to the cover being waterproof or not but is more of a precaution that you will want to take with any electrical connection when there is going to be exposure to a lot of water.

  • To determine if the problem is with the Chevy light hitch cover # 86062 use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to test the pins on the truck's 4-Way connector while someone operates the turn signals, brakes, and running lights in the truck. If any of the circuits are not showing power then that could be the reason and it is likely a blown tow package, stop light, or CHMSL fuse.
