Video Transcript for etrailer.com Rubber Hitch Cover Review

Speaker 1: Today you're going to be getting a look at the rubber hitch cover from etrailer.com. It's available for two inch hitches, part number 22282. It's also available for inch and a quarter hitches, part number 22281.If you've got several hundred dollars invested in a trailer hitch, you may want to consider spending a few more dollars to protect it. An empty receiver tube could invite water, road grime, or other environmental hazards into the opening creating rust and corrosion. This can even spread to your bull mount. The hitch cover serves a dual purpose, preventing rust and corrosion while adding to the overall appearance of a hitch.The etrailer.com hitch cover is black in appearance so it's going to blend in with your hitch.

Compared to other hitch covers, it doesn't require a pin and clip. It simply just pressure fits in place.The wide rubber face is also going to protect the collar of your hitch. Because the whole thing is rubber, it's going to be more durable than plastic hitch covers. Now you've had a look at the rubber hitch cover from etrailer.com.

Harness fit right up. Challenge was routing the power line up to the battery in the front of the van. Need to keep it away from the exhaust piping. Purchased their plastic flex conduit and went to amazon and bought some stainless self tapping screws and rubber cushioned cable clamps (stainless) to secure the routing to the underside of the body. Keep it stored in my tire tool change cubby when not in use.

I ordered the Curt hitch for my 2018 Acura MDX. It fit perfectly though the rubber hanger for the exhaust had to be moved over about a 1/2” to allow the hitch to be lifted into position. The job would have been easier if my car was on a lift and I had another pair of hands. I had neither so I had to improvise. I put the hitch on a dolly and moved it into position under the car. Using shims, I raised the hitch high enough on one side to get the bolts started. Note, I followed the instructions and cleaned and greased the 6 bolt holes. After getting the bolts on one side started I shimmed up the other side. This is where the rubber exhaust hanger got in the way. Using a wonder bar I levered the hanger out of the way until the hitch flange cleared it. I inserted the 3 bolts and tightened them down. I then tightened the bolts on the side I had attached first. One of the bolts would not screw in all the way. After repeated attempts to clean the whole the bolt still would not go in all the way. Not sure what the problem is. Will have a mechanic take a look at it the next time my car is on a lift. I am a senior citizen and attaching the lift by myself with the car on the ground was a challenge as my aching back will attest to. Better to have another pair of helping hands and the car on a lift or ramps to ease the install.

Believe it to be great but honestly, since my purchase of the Swagman 2 bike platform rack tilting (S64678) I have not a chance to use it. The Rack has been so wonderful, have not taken it off the Trailer Hitch Receiver (e98907) I purchased. Bikes have gone everywhere with us this summer..Grand Canyon, Zion, Tahoe...so wonderful to have them!!

Spoke with Alex and within 5 minutes we were able to identify the products I needed. He also helped us with our sales tax exempt certificate to apply to the order. The products shipped the same day I called.

Had one of these for my eTrailer hitch on my Subaru. Somebody must have really liked it, because one day it "disappeared." Sigh. Glad to have a replacement -- nice snug fit, keeps the receiver clean, and I'm glad to advertise eTrailer's superior products and service.



- 22282
by:

Installed easily onto our 2019 Subaru Forester Sport. Very happy.



- 22282
by:

While everything from E-Trailer has been top-notch, I was hesitant with such an inexpensive part. I have been let down with durability from items from other sources. This item gets handled weekly as we put either a hitch ball, bike rack or just the plug into the hitch.



- 22282
by:

The etrailer hitch cover works great, after a year it still locks in tight and basically shows no signs of wear at all, it survived the brutal new york winter and my hitch has no rust at all as a result, well worth the money!!

I installed onto a 2021 Nissan Rouge Platinum edition. Was concerned about the rear hatch sensor which uses foot motion to open. After installation the sensor worked as designed. The hitch fit very snug and looks great on the vehicle.

Perfect fit. This will keep the gunk and junk out of the receiver. This gives it a clean look.

The 2" receiver I installed from etrailer has been working well for the past year. I haul several mountain bikes with my Acura MDX almost daily. The hitch arrived ontime, in good shape, with all required hardware. Welds and hole locations were right on. The install took less than an hour The hardest part was torquing the bolts to full spec (dont recall if that was 120 or 150 ft-lb). Used service removable loctite (blue). Also used etrailer for a 2" receiver on our Subaru Outback. There were more plastic exterior panels to remove with that one but it was not a difficult job either. 2 wins for me with etrailer!

This works great and fits snug. I have pulled it out several times to tow and replaced it. It has never fallen out. A little rust still gets into the tow hitch but nothing like I had before. I we live in an area that gets 70 to 100 inches of rain a year and I am right on the ocean so moisture is an issue but this trailer plug keeps he hitch pretty dry. I am very happen with it and suggest getting one if you want to keep yours clean and dry. The enclosed pictures are right after we had 2 inches of rain.



- 22282
by:

The hitch arrived in great shape complete with hardware and instructions. I put the hitch on in 20 minutes with just the jack from the car and my ratchet and socket.



- 22282

The hitch fit perfect. Had to go buy a tap to clean up the holes in the frame though. Very easy to install.

The hitch was a perfect fit for my 2021 RAV4 Hybrid. No reason to pay more for other name brands. Easy install and looks great. Fits up fairly snug and looks very OEM.

It's a great item,although I wish it had a rope you can tide it to the hitch. I have already lost it and bought one you can secure to the hitch so it won't fall.

  • Best Option for Carrying Two Bikes on 2016 Mini Clubman S
    Because of the spoiler atop the rear hatch of the 2016 Clubman S, none of our bike rack manufacturers offer a trunk mount rack that'll work, as the spoiler isn't strong enough to support the weight of the rack plus the bikes without sustaining damage. I'd recommend a hitch mount bike rack. You'd begin by installing the Curt Class I hitch, part # C11524. This hitch works great, especially for folks that don't want to see an ugly hitch hanging off the rear of the vehicle. When installed,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TID
    If you're looking for a US manufactured hitch for your 2011 VW Jetta SportWagen TDI, I'd recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7284. This is the only US manufactured hitch we offer that's a fit for your vehicle. For a trailer wiring harness, I'd recommend the Tekonsha # 119147KIT. I've linked to an installation video for the hitch and an install overview for the wiring. You'll also need a ball mount like # D-28, a hitch pin, # PC3 and a trailer ball like # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch or # 63845 for...

  • Do I need a fixed or sliding hitch for the Reese Revolution?
    You will need a fixed hitch for your Reese Revolution as it moves the pivot point from over the axle 22" to the rear of the truck. The Reese Revolution is design for short bed trucks but will work with any truck bed length. For the Reese Revolution you will need a wedge that fits the 5th wheel hitch you purchase. Does your Reese Revolution still have the universal wedge that was included with the Reese Revolution? If so, it will fit a variety of options. We recommend the B&W # BWRVK3300....

    In terms of choosing a Lippert Solid Step, you'll use the width of the finished door at it's narrowest. Round that number up to the next full inch, which in your case would be 28 inches. In that case, you'll want the adjustable model which fits 26-29-7/8 inch wide doors. The latches that hold the steps in the upward position are width adjustable. For your door width, there's a 2, 3 or 4 step unit available. For a 2 step unit for a 22-28 inch entry height, use part #LC733931, for a 3...

    For your 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 5-3/4 foot bed the Pace Edwards Switchblade part # 311-SWCA27A58 is your best option based on what you are wanting. It's a lower profile, retractable, strong, easy to operate, and due to it's seals and drain system is very waterproof. No tonneau is totally waterproof but this will keep your truck bed as dry as possible.

Both these recommendations are on the heavier duty side of the spectrum, but your 31K is pretty large and you'll need a higher capacity option to absorb bumps and help reduce body roll. The springs are manufactured right here in the USA, and will remain flexible in whatever temperatures you find yourself in. The urethane construction...

For trailer wiring the ZCIKIT part # 119250KIT can install without requiring any splicing into your vehicle wiring. Or for a lower priced option that does require splicing we have the # 119190KIT.

Since you'll be towing a travel trailer already, and the vehicle roof wouldn't have the strength to carry that type of weight, a trailer or a roof mounted rack wouldn't be a good solution. Your best bet would be to use a ladder rack like # 3371501680 from Buyer's Products. The rack has an 800 lb capacity, so it'll handle the boat with no problem. The rack...

For your 2020 Subaru Forester I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 306-X7391 as it has the highest tongue weight rating out of all of the hidden cross tube hitches available for your vehicle at 525lbs making it a great option for carrying a bike rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro...

  • Choosing a Spare Tire Cover to Fit Your Tire
    From the three different tire numbers you sent me, it looks like you have a 26.1" spare tire. You can also do the math to find out what spare tire size cover you need. Take the first number and multiply by 0.0394 (205 x 0.0394 = 8.077). Then multiply the result by 0.75 (8.865 x 0.75 = 6.058). Next, multiply by 2 (6.058 x 2 = 12.12). And last, add the wheel diameter, in this case 14 (12.12 + 14 = 26.12). That 26.12 is the tire diameter/height, give or take a fraction of an inch. I...

For a ball mount, use # C45521 and a # PC2 hitch pin. For a trailer ball, use # A-80 for a 1-7/8 inch or # A-82 for a 2 inch ball. You'll also need a trailer wiring harness like part # 119147KIT.

For the 3831 size I recommend # TC3831 which also can be used for both on-road and off-road applications. There are a lot of tire sizes in between the compatible sizes listed for these tire chains that just don't show up. But resources have indicated that these 2 sizes will work with your tires.
