I am very pleased with the hitch. Along with the hitch, I ordered the ball mount and the wiring harness. Delivery was on point. I was going to have my mechanic install the hitch, but after watching your video a few times, I decided to tackle the job myself. It did take me about three hours to complete the installation. Of course in your video, it's all done with a lift which I didn't have. Followed the video and the installation came out great. Great product and video to referred to when needed. 294452

I very recently ordered, a Curt class 111 Ball mount with 2" drop- 7500 lbs and an adapter 7 pole to 4 pole with tester and cover, as a first time customer . I was needing to pull my golf cart and trailer to a new home . I chose the 5 to 7 day standard mail delivery. I very quickly received an email from ETrailer customer service Rep. George J. To advise that he was turning my order around quicker with a 3 to 5 day delivery. This was my first experience with ordering a product from your company and I was extremely impressed with ETrailer outstanding customer service. I mentioned this to a neighbor of mine and He stated to me that he had bought several things from ETrailer and had always had excellent service. Thank You ETrailer and George J.

  • Troubleshooting 2 Inch Ball Mount that Fits Too Tight In Vehicle Receiver
    The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 2" Drop - 7,500 lbs # C45036 sounds like it may have a little too much powder coat or something to cause resistance like you stated. Alternatively it could be the receiver side as well but it seems odd that the Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitch - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 13-1/4" Long - 10,000 lbs # BH20 fits if it were the receiver side. The # BH20 will work fine for your 7,500 lb capacity if you don't want to purchase another option. You can...

  • How To Select A Ball Mount For Towing A Trailer
    When you want to find out what ball mount works best for you the first thing you need to do is park both the trailer and the towing vehicle on level ground. You then need to measure the distance from the top of the trailer hitch receiver opening to the ground. Then measure the distance from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the height of the hitch is greater you need a ball mount with a drop. If the coupler height is greater you need a ball mount with a rise. I have...

  • Type of Wrench to Use to Remove Hitch Ball of Curt Ball Mount # C45036
    Do you have a really large crescent wrench you could use to grab onto the slotted sides of the hitch ball on the Curt ball mount # C45036? Channel locks would not be my first choice as they also require you to squeeze the handles to hold the ball which will be too difficult. A large crescent wrench or even a really large vice grip might be best way to grab the hitch ball.

  • How to Choose the Correct Ball Mount for a 2018 Honda Ridgeline
    In order to determine the correct amount of rise/drop you will need in a ball mount you will want to measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer while level then subtract this measurement from the ground to the top of the inside edge on the hitch for your 2018 Honda Ridgeline. I have attached a help article that will walk you through this process as well. Unfortunately, we do not have the measurements on your Ridgeline therefore you will need to take them yourself....

  • 2 inch Hitch Ball and Ball Mount
    We definitely can help you! What you are looking for is a 2 inch hitch ball and ball mount. The ball mount is what holds the ball and inserts into the hitch opening. We have the Curt ball mount part # C45036 which comes with a 2 inch hitch ball installed. The ball mount has a 2 inch drop which means that it holds the ball 2 inches lower than the top of the hitch opening. This seems to work well for a lot of situations but you should take a couple measurements on your trailer and truck...

  • Will Longer Ball Mount Increase Turning Clearance for Small Trailer When Backing Up?
    Having an extended ball mount will help with giving you some additional clearance simply because it moves the pivot point back which changes your clearance at the outer edges. The Curt # D-4 is similar with 10-1/4 inch measurement. You may want to consider the Ball Mount 3/4" Rise or 2" Drop, Extra Long # D-26 which is 12-5/8" from hitch pin center to ball center. Then you will need a hitch pin like # C21500 and hitch ball like # 63845

  • Does 2 Inch Hitch Ball Come Pre-Installed on Ball Mount
    It never hurts to ask and be sure! You are correct that the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2 Inch Ball # C45036 does come with the hitch ball already installed. The ball comes torqued on the ball mount to the factory specifications, so it is a step you will not need to do before heading out so soon. I have attached a review video of this ball mount for you.

  • Choosing Ball Mount for 2015 Ford Escape to Tow Tent Trailer
    In order to choose a ball mount that will allow you to tow your trailer level, you will want to take two measurements. First, on your tow vehicle, you will measure from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver. Then on your trailer, you will measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. When taking these measurements, make sure both the vehicle and trailer are on level ground. You will then choose a ball mount that has a rise or drop measurement closest to the difference...

  • Can a Ball Mount Rated for 7,500 lbs be Used with a Trailer Hitch Rated for 6,000 lbs
    Using a ball mount that has a 7,500 lb Gross Towing Weight (GTW) capacity, like the Curt # C45036, with a trailer hitch that is rated only for 6,000 lbs is definitely okay. For any towing setup you are limited by the lowest rated component. Just knowing the ball mount and trailer hitch capacity tells me that the max you can tow is 6,000 lbs. I bet if you check your owner's manual you will see that your vehicle is actually rated to tow less than 6,000 lbs which means that the weight...

  • Recommended Ball Mount with to Tow a Trailer Level that Needs 1 Inch of Drop
    The closest you can get to level is preferred. The Curt Ball Mount # C45036 is likely going to be the closest you'll find and will work for you as long as your trailer's coupler fits a 2 inch hitch ball. If you need a 2-5/16 inch ball, instead, use # C45041. Instead of going by the recommendation on the trailer's sticker you might take a measurement. With the trailer on level ground measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. The difference between this number and the 23...

  • Best Trailer Towing Setup for a 2006 Nissan Murano
    The wiring you need is the Tekonsha T-One # 118775 wiring kit as it is the only one available for your 2006 Nissan Murano. For a trailer hitch I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13571 which is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver. It has a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) rating of 3,500 lbs and a max Tongue Weight (TW) rating of 350 lbs but you will want to check the weight capacity rating of your Murano in your owner's manual to ensure that you do not exceed the lower...

  • Recommended Ball Mount Kit For 2015 Ford Explorer

It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

  • Is There a Shorter Shank Option for Curt Fixed Ball Mount with 2 Inch Drop
    The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball - 2" Drop - 7,500 lbs # C45036 does come with the hitch ball installed. The ball platform is 3/4 inches thick which is standard with a 1 inch diameter hole. This is the shortest option for that rise and drop. There is a lower rated option in # C45131 but it is only due to the smaller hitch ball that is 1-7/8 inch diameter. It still uses the same ball mount and just changes the hitch ball. There are longer options that are similar but nothing...

  • Draw Bar and Hitch Ball for 2012 Toyota Highlander
    The correct ball mount and hitch ball to use with your 2012 Toyota Highlander is going to depend on a few measurements. The first thing you will want to do is park your Highlander and trailer on level ground. Then, measure from the ground to the top of the Highlander's receiver opening. After that, measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer. If your hitch height is 2" greater, the # C45036 drawbar would be correct (so long as you need a 2" hitch ball for your coupler)....

  • What is the Wall Thickness of the Curt Class III Ball Mount Part # C45036
    I spoke with my contact at Curt who informed me that the wall thickness of the Curt Class III Ball Mount part # C45036 is about 3/16" or .188" thick. In order to receive a ball mount with a wall thickness of 1/4" or .250 you would need to go up to a Class IV like the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # C45310. This ball mount does not come with a hitch ball or hitch pin/clip like the above ball mount does but you can add them using part # A-90 and part # C21500. I have attached a review...

  • 2 inch Drop Ball Mount with 2 inch Hitch Ball Recommendation
    When you measure the trailer you want to measure from the bottom lip of the coupler down to the ground when level. So if you measured from the inside of the ball of your coupler down to the ground most likely you'd need 2 more inches of drop than what you came up with. The Curt ball mount part # C45036 has a 2 inch drop, fits a 2 inch hitch, and comes with the ball installed already so it would be ready to go. It has a 7,500 lb capacity too.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for 2-Inch Trailer Hitch
    If your ball mount has a hollow shank like # C45036 then you can use an anti-rattle hitch lock like # SHP2082, # 63232 or # PS63100. These install inside the ball mount shank and will lock your ball mount to your hitch receiver tube while they help reduce the play in the receiver tube. The best anti-rattle performance will come from a dedicated product like the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, part # BX88224. This does not lock but it could be used along with a separate standard...

  • How to Loosen the Nut Holding a Ball on a Ball Mount
    You will need to use a cheater bar on the end of the wrench to get enough leverage to loosen the nut on the ball on ball mount # C45036. Chances are the crescent wrench has a wide and flat handle so you will likely need to go to a hardware store to get a steel pipe wide enough to fit on the end of the handle. It probably doesn't have to be too long, 2 feet. I once had trouble with a lug nut on a car and the only thing I had on hand was a very long piece of chain link fence post and it...

  • Can Taller Hitch Ball be Installed in Curt Ball Mount # C45036

  • Is Curt Class III Ball Mount Compatible with 2 inch Hitch Receiver on 2000 Ford F-150
    The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2" Ball # C45036 fits a standard 2" trailer hitch receiver. Since standard receivers have a 5/8" hitch pin hole that is the size of the pin that comes with this kit. You might want to double check that you have a 2" receiver by measuring the inside height and width of your trailer hitch receiver and that your hitch pin holes have a 1/2" diameter because the only time that a 1/2" pin is used is for a 1-1/4" receiver.
