Reese has created this light-up hitch cover to look like an ordinary black 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 insert 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" hitch 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.

Got it today good job thanks again 569550

- RP86530

Easy to install. Works exactly as the website said it would. I like how it is brighter when braking. A bonus that I didn't realize was when I turned on the hazard flasher the red bow tie blinked as well. Unfortunately, the picture I took shows the bow tie as yellow but it really is LED red. 133370

Item looks nice, giVing as a gift.. 325699

Bit of a pain to assemble. Instructions aren't as clear as they could be. The 4 way flat wire is a bit obtrusive unless you take the time to reroute it. Again, a bit of a pain. Looks good once installed. Works fine so far. 307555

Product came packaged nicely and was just as described. 260563

- RP86530

Liked it's looks for the first 6 months and then I started losing individual LEDs. As its a sealed unit there isn't an easy way to check if it is diodes or circuit. Granted, the bottom end of Lake Michigan isn't the best environment to drive in but I thought it might hold up a little better. 255450

The Chevy lighted hitch that I purchased was for my son-in-law's birthday coming up; so he has not yet seen it. I know very little about auto parts and assembly but a couple of things I can speak to. I did my homework in determining which product was the most favorable deal for a gift I would like to give him. When I ordered it the delivery date was a bit out in the future but still before I needed it, but it would be close. Well it actually came in two days earlier, packaged very well and was inclusive of everything it stated as contained within. There was an option to see the hitch lit up which was not available online and that really sold me that I had gotten a gift that he will be proud of and happy with. I would certainly seek the etrailer.com website again when needed items which they handle. George was great to keep me in the loop with a couple of emails and seems like a really nice guy. Thank you eTrailer.com. Tom S. 221730

  • Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for 2008 Chevy Uplander with 113-Inch Wheelbase
    Draw-Tite Class III hitch # 75278 is a confirmed fit on the 2008 Chevy Uplander with 113-inch wheelbase. I verified this with Draw-Tite. This particular hitch fits all styles of this vehicle year/make/model. An installation video for this item is linked for you along with a helpful article.

  • Will The Chevy Bowtie LED Trailer Hitch Cover Illuminate When Tail Light/Reverse Light Are Activated
    The Chevy Bowtie LED lighted trailer hitch cover # RP86530 will work with your vehicle's brakes and/or taillights. The hitch cover # RP86530 will not light up when you are in reverse or when your turn signals are flashing. The LED hitch cover will stay dim until either the brake lights or hazard lights are activated which will result in higher illumination. Note that the converter, which is necessary to keep the hitch cover from flashing when your turn signals are activated, can be...

  • Light Up Chevy Emblem Hitch Cover Recommendation that Blinks with Both Side Blinkers
    What you described is correct. The part # CR-007C uses the trailer right turn/stop signal to activate so because that circuit is combined this is going to blink with the right blinker but not the left. For a similar hitch cover that blinks with both blinkers the part # RP86530 would be what you would need.

  • Will the Chevy Bowtie LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover # RP86530 Fit a 2016 Chevy Tahoe
    Chevy Bowtie LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover # RP86530 fits in a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening. I do believe the 2016 Chevy Tahoe came with a 2 inch receiver. The electrical connection plugs into a 4-Way flat connector on the vehicle. If the Tahoe does not have a trailer connector at all you can add one using # C59236. If it has just a 7-Way trailer connector but no 4-Way you can use # C55384 to tee in a 4-Way. This cover does not come with a hitch pin. For a regular hitch...

  • Using Lighted LED Chevy Bow Tie Hitch Cover on 2005 Chevy Silverado with 6-Way Trailer Connector
    Trailer hitch cover # RP86530 comes with a 4-Way but not an adapter. You would need to order an adapter separately. A 6-Way trailer connector is not too common on vehicles like your 2005 Chevy Silverado. Doublecheck to make sure it isn't actually a 7-Way such as # PK11893. If you do have a 6-Way you can use adapter # PK12717. If it is a 7-Way you can use adapter # PK12716.
