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

Video Transcript for Reese Hitch Covers - OEM - RP86532 Review

Today were going to review part number RP86532. This is the Reese Ford LED lighted trailer hitch cover. Its designed for inch and quarter and two inch hitches. It is black in color. Now, this is an officially licensed LED lighted Ford logo hitch cover that will add a stylish touch to your vehicle. Basically, the light up Ford emblem will activate when running lights or on.

It will brighten when the brake pedal is pressed. Basically what happens is when you turn on your vehicles taillights or activate the breaks, this covers unique metallic coating appears transparent and has bright red LEDs that will shine through it.The long-lasting LEDs have two intensity levels. The red lights remain set at low a illumination when your vehicles taillights on, and then when you activate your breaks or turn on hazard lights, the LEDs will burn brighter to draw attention to your vehicle. This hitch cover will not flash when you turn signals are activated. Again, the red LEDs are long-lasting and energy efficient.

This hitch cover, as you can see here, I have the two inch adapter to put on to it. This will slide into your hitch receiver, keeps out any dirt and grime. It includes all the mounting brackets, foam gaskets and the hardware, which are included for both the inch and a quarter and two inch receivers too. As you can see, I have mounted the two inch adapter on there, and you can see the wiring goes through a hole in there. Basically, you can see the wiring harness will plug into your vehicles existing four pole trailer connector.

It comes with these foam gaskets, just take them apart. This one again is for the two inch, like we have on there now. You just slide this on there and then slide this into your hitch, as the two holes that align up with your hitch pin or hitch lock. Now, the hitch pin and clip and the hitch lock, we do sell separately. They are not included.

This is made of a durable plastic, which is corrosion resistant. With the foam gasket on there, you can see this will ensure a nice snug rattle-free fit.Now, the application on this again, as this will fit inch and quarter and two inch trailer hitch receivers. Just want to give you quick measurement on the size of this cover. The width on it is right at seven inches and the height on it is right at two and three-quarter inches tall. NowWhat Im going to do is, I have a 12 volt power supply here. Im going to plug it into to give you an idea of how they light up. What we are going to do is go ahead and turn off the overhead lights. I got it plugged into my 12 volt power supply. Ill go ahead and turn it on, like if you turn your taillights on, and there you can see the Ford will light up. The red LEDs light up and shine through. When you hit your breaks or your hazard flashers, you can see that it gets even brighter.I'll go ahead and unplug it, turn on the overhead lights. It does come with all these pieces here. This is the two piece bracket that if youre going to install this on an inch and quarter receiver, youll just put this together, and on the back here where I have the two inch one, you basically would just unscrew it and you slide the gasket off. This is two piece thing also thats screwed on.Youll just take this off, put these two pieces together, and then those will just bolt on using the existing screws the same way. Once thats on, then you would use this gasket instead, and this would give you your seal on your inch and a quarter hitch. Its as simple as that.That should do it for the review on part number RP86532. This is the Reese Ford LED lighted trailer hitch cover for inch and quarter and two inch hitches and theyre black in color. .

Product was good in looks and function in the beginning.. Loved it.. But once winter hit here in NY..The product still looks great .. BUT the lights haven't worked in months.. Sometimes it's hard to follow when you buy Items...Right now I still have the item..and it works good as just a cover only!! But I actually bought it for the light up function which hasn't worked in months now....Almost gave it a 2.. But .. I have been thinking about buying see what happens!! 639296


Id recommend determining if the problem is with the lamp itself or with the wiring on the vehicle. You can use a circuit tester like # 40376
Circuit Tester Kit
on the pins of the trailer connector on the vehicle as each taillight function is activated. If that all checks out, the problem is in the lamp itself. You might also want to check the pins and sockets on the both sides of the electrical connection for corrosion. The lamp is covered by a 1 year warranty.

Very nice product. Looks great on truc k. 444015

Great product however; it is not a good match for the electronics on 2017 Ford F150. As best we can guess, the LED circuitry is so low in amperage, that the truck's computer system see the weak signal as a lamp out on a trailer and continually sends a notice of lamp failure to the dash warning systems (both audible and visual). The functionality of the brake light / tail light doesn't shake hands either, so you only get tail light - nothing brighter when the brake is applied. Unfortunate because it appears to be a well constructed product and looks good. On the plus side, no hassle return processed with understanding and care. 396194

Thanks for the follow up. Unfortunately, the cover stopped working correctly a while back. Some of the letters stopped lighting up. We have long since gotten rid of it. 382378

Ask the Experts about this Reese Hitch Covers
Do you have a question about this Hitch Cover?

  • Ford LED Hitch Cover Disables Backup Sensors and Causes Fast Blinkers on 2015 Ford Escape
  • Your 2015 Ford Escape must have a feature that detects when something is connected to the trailer wiring tow package so it disables the reverse light sensors because it thinks a trailer is connected. The fast blinkers are probably happening because the lighted hitch cover # RP86532 has an LED light which draws very little power. This would make the vehicle think that a bulb is out on the connected trailer (even though it isn't a trailer) and that is why you have the warnings showing...

  • Solution for Dash Error Code Message on 2015 Ford F-150 with LED Hitch Cover
  • On vehicles that have a hard time working properly with LED trailer taillights or hitch covers the solution is to install load resistors on the circuits of the hitch cover to increase the load on the circuit which will allow the truck to work properly. For that we have the # P230004C. You would need to install one of these on each of the circuits of the cover.

  • Ford LED Logo in 7 Inch Wide Size for 2018 Ford Explorer
  • I have an option for you but it isn't a direct fit. Although the Ford LED Lighted Vehicle Emblem - Black # RP86620 is only available in the 9 inch by 3-1/2 inch option, we do have a similar hitch cover that is the correct size for you that you could use in that same way. It is the Ford LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Chrome # 86065 or the black # RP86532. Either of these options is the 7 inch by 2-3/4 inch logo. The wiring will be identical to the emblem and...

  • Is a Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover Legal for Use in Kansas
  • I checked with the Kansas State Highway Patrol and lights on the back of a vehicle in Kansas have to be white, red, or amber so the blue light on Ford lighted hitch cover # CR-017F would seem to violate that. For a light up Ford hitch cover that only lights up red we have # 86065. It fits 1-1/4 and 2 inch receivers. For a similar cover with a black background that lights up red we have # RP86532. We also have # CR-007F but it only fits 2 inch trailer hitch receivers.

  • Does Ford Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover 86532 Fit 2016 Ford F-150 2 inch Hitch
