Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ram 1500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2018 Ram 1500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Class V Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver. Part number, C15572. Here's what our hitch looks like once we have it installed. We are going to be able to see that cross tube, just right below the bumper, but it's going to hide nicely, because it has that flat, black, powder coat finish on it, so it's just going to blend in.Mainly what we're going to see is that receiver tube sticking out, and it is a Class V, which means it's going to give us that 2" X 2" receiver tube opening, and as you can see, it's got that nice, reinforced collar, giving it added strength, and just an overall finished look.The way we're going to attach all of our accessories is going to be through this pinhole, here, and that's going to accept a stand 5/8 pin and clip. They're not included, but you can pick one up on our website, using part number PC3.The safety chain connection points are going to be a plate style, welded directly to the bottom of our cross tube and receiver tube, here, and the loops are going to be rather large, so we're going to have plenty of room to get most sized hooks on or off. Just want to keep in mind, if you are using a locking device, may have a little bit of trouble, depending on the angle, because they are directly in front of that pin.As fat as the weight's concerned, this is a Class V, so it's going to give us a lot of weight capacity.

We're going to have 1,500 pounds of tongue weight, along with 15,000 pounds of gross trailer weight rating. It is designed to work with weight distribution systems. It's going to bump that tongue weight up to 1,600 pounds, and the gross trailer weight all the way up to 16,000 pounds. With that in mind, I do recommend that you double check the owner's manual to make sure that you don't exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight.I'd like to give you a few measurements that will help you when deciding for accessories for your new hitch, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or even a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole, the outer most edge of the bumper, it's going to be right at about 2-1/2".

From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, it's going to be about 20-1/2".Now that we've seen what our hitch looks like, and gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed. To begin our installation, we're going to come to our back bumper, and we're going to have our bumper support, here, and if we move towards the front of our truck, we're going to have one bolt that we're going to have to remove out of that bumper support. We're going to be using a 21mm socket to pull it out.You're going to want to hold to this bolt, because we are going to be reusing it, and we'll remove the other one on the other side, as well. If we move forward just a bit, we're going to have a rather large hole in the bottom of our frame rail, here. You're going to want to grab your fish wire, and we're going to take this smaller of the two spacer blocks, and we're going to slide that right over the coiled end, and then we're going to take our carriage bolt, and we're going to thread it onto the coiled end.To get our hardware in place, we're going to be doing what's called the "reverse fish wire." You're going to take your bolt, you're going to push it up into the frame, and then separately, you're going to push that spacer block into the frame, and you're going to pull it down.

Now, since they only provide us with two pull wires in our kit, you're going to want to remove the pull wire, but you're going to want to unthread it so it doesn't damage the coiled end on here. We're going to do that for the other side, as well.If we come to the very back of our vehicle, where our bumper support is, right behind our license plate, we're going to notice that we're gong to have two oblong holes that are in our bumper support. We're going to take that same fish wire, and we're going to put it in the oblong hole, and on the passenger side, we're going to push it towards the passenger side, so that it comes out at the end of the frame rail, there.Now, you want to make sure that you leave a little bit coming out of that oblong hole, because you can still access the coiled end. We're going to be doing the same thing. We're going to take the large spacer block this time, we're going to slide it over the coiled end, we're going to take another one of our carriage bolts, and thread it on.Then, we're going to take them, and we're going to push them into the bumper support, and we're gong to pull them towards the center, to where they come out of the bumper support, here, and the bolt sticks out.

I am going to just leave the fish wire attached to this one, and just push it back in to the bumper support, so that we can actually get our hitch in place. We're going to have another one that we're going to have to fishwire into place on that other hole.With an extra set of hands, we're going to put our hitch into position, and you're going to want to take your fishwire coming from the back, going towards the front of the truck. We're going to life it up, and that bolt coming down from the frame is going to go through the middle hole in the side of the hitch.We're going to take our existing hardware, and we're going to throw it back into the frame. Just want to make sure that you get it in far enough so that it can support the hitch, and then we can work on getting the rest of the hardware in place.On the back, where our license plate area is, we can go and grab those pull wires, and we can pull the bolt out. Again, you're going to want to remove the pull wire, and being careful not to push the bolt or let it fall back into the frame rail, there. Once you almost have the pull wire removed, it's always a good idea to go ahead and put your finger on it, so it can't fall out, and we're going to take out 1/2" flange nuts, and we'll thread them into place, and secure it down. We'll do that for the other one, as well.For the bolts coming down through our frame, we're going to take another one of our flange nuts, and we're going to secure it to the hitch. You want to be careful when you're putting these on. You don't want to push too much, so that bolt goes back in the frame. And we'll do that for the other one on the other side, as well.I'm going to come back with a 3/4" socket, and I'm going to tighten down all my 1/2" hardware. With that 21mm socket, I'm going to tighten up my factory M14 hardware. I'm going to come back with that 21mm socket, and I'm going to torque my factor M14 bolts down to the specified amount in the instructions.Now, with a 3/4" socket, I'm going to come back, and we're going to torque down my 1/2" hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. We're going to repeat that for all of our remaining hardware. The bell of our bolts torque down, and it'll finish up the installation. All we have to do is put our spare tire back.That'll finish up your look at the Curt Class V Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C15572, on our 2018 Ram 1500.

Thank you etrailer for the prompt service and a great price. I ordered the Curt trailer hitch #C15572 for my 2018 Ram 1500 at 9:20 pm Friday night and got a email saying it had shipped at 10:15 pm that same night. Received it on the day (the following Wednesday) they said it would arrive but way earlier in the day. I read a lot of reviews before I ordered and some shipments may have been handled ruff and some people said the hitch was bent and hard to install. My shipment came and the cardboard box had a few small rips but upon inspection the hitch seemed fine. It is pretty heavy and the box seems a little weak for such a item but all hardware is well taped to the hitch and was intact on arrival. On reading the reviews one person mentioned using their floor jack and a slide in receiver for holding the hitch up and since I was going to be installing this myself I tried this out. As you can see in my pictures it works pretty well if you a jack you can bolt it too or clamp it too as in my case. The hitch only needed slight prying to line up the factory M12 bolts in the frame and the fishing wires made the job so much easier with the rest of the bolts. I am now ready to tow with confidence, thanks again for the great service. 525519

More than I expected. Top quality. Perfect fit. Quick delivery. All parts were included. Price was exceptional. The only thing I can think of that would have made it better is is you had come with it to install, that baby was heavy! Thanks. MT 87169

Had a lot of heavy use and not a flaw. Pulled 25 foot trailer all over and in all weather. Did what it was designed to do. Thanks.

I ordered Class V hitch C15572 for my 2018 RAM Sport Night edition 4x4 from etrailer.com. The item was delivered on time and the shipping was free. I watched the suggested installation video and a friend and I got it installed in under an hour. All the holes lined up perfectly and everything was flush. This hitch is 60+ pounds, so make sure you have extra hands to hold it in place while bolting it up. The only small issue was there were some scratches on the hitch that were covered with brown paper. Not a big deal - it's a hitch! I would recommend this hitch and eTrailer to anyone. My friend wants to order one for his RAM Truck! 500573

I was pleasantly suprised when the reciever was delivered 3 days after ordering. The box was undamaged in contrast to many other reviewers. I was happy that the kit came with 2 fishing wires so that my partner and i were able to work on each side simultaneously. Everything fit perfectly and took about 20 minutes. It actually took longer to retrieve the tools from the truck to drop and lowere the spare tire. Will definatley order more products from Curt and from etrailer.com 365920

Received today 1/6/2017 and installed it. Took about 30 minutes. When I was researching receiver hitches, I went straight to this manufacturer site. This same hitch on their site is twice as much than what you pay for it through etrailer. Everything arrived and a large cardboard box. All items were still inside the box but, UPS or somebody went through a war zone before they delivered it to me. No damage to the receiver hitch but boy that box was tore up. Very satisfied with this product and definitely would recommend this class 5 receiver hitch. 330560

Just installed today. Instructions were very good. I did the install by myself but would say you definitely need 2 people. Everything fit well. Had to pry the unit over about a 1/16th of an inch to get last bolt in but between variations in truck frames and hitch I consider that excellent! My original receiver was lost in shipment but etrailer quickly shipped a replacement as soon as i contacted them and I received it 2 days later. Awesome customer service! This receiver looks to be very high quality. Also made in USA! 539282

I received your hitch February 16th A.M. I took a floor jack and removed the plate and added a 6 inch drop hitch to the jack and bolted it through the hole where the plate was backwards. I slid the receiver hitch unto the hitch and jacked it up under the truck into place. I put the six bolts back in and torqued them as the instructions said in about twenty minutes. By using the floor jack it was a very easy installment. I was very happy with the hitch it fit perfect. Thank you. 175037

I replaced a Reese Class III with this Curt Class V, The Rees e had gone on and off with eazy. The Curt not so much, only the two holes on the cross member lined up. The holes on the side brackets were a nightmare. I had to use nylon straps and pry bars to get holes lined up to slid onto studs then to get holes lined to start orginal frames bolts were they didnt bind. Took almost three hours a huge amount of time for a job like this. Never again. 84871

A little snug, but I figured it would be. It was easy to install. I figured out, that I shouldn't tighten any bolt until they were all started. I had to make an adjustment to install the last bolt. I used a thick screw driver squeezing it between the hitch and the frame of the truck to make the last of the adjustments. I hammered the screw driver between the Truck frame and side of the Hitch plate to align the last screw hole. 365505

great product. came within days from date of order. easy quick install. actually took me longer to get the tool for lowering the spare tire out from under the front seat, than it did to put the hitch on the truck. installation video was right on point. wished I would have slowed down an taken a photo or two while doing the install. thanks. I plan on using e trailer for future purchases. 117984

My hitch arrived without al the required hardware. After 3 weeks of back and forth with etrailer customer support, I received the missing items. When i tried to install the hitch, I found that it was bent and would not bolt up to my truck. Staff at etrailer was very helpful and sent me a new hitch . It fit without problems. I spent about 45 min to complete the install. 446174

the hitch is great but the packaging sucked, it was falling out of several taped together boxes, I guess they get them by the truck load and warp them individually. that said, I shopped it all over its the best price I could find and is a Class % hitch. 527647

  • For your 2013 Ram 1500 2WD without a factory-installed hitch we offer several options in an aftermarket 2-inch hitch. All are shown on the linked page and their compatibility will vary depending on the specific complement of equipment on your truck. We offer Class II, Class IV and Class V hitches for your truck.

When used with weight distribution it is rated for 1,200/12,000 pounds. Check the truck owner's manual for the truck's capacities and go by the lower of the 2 ratings, the hitch or the truck.

If it is welded on then you will need to get a professional to cut the welds for you. The Class V Curt Hitch # C15572 that you referenced will be a great upgrade on your Ram 1500.

The tongue weight on the trailer will probably be closer to 20 percent rather than the typical 10 to 15 percent. That would put the tongue weight of the trailer at 1,440 pounds. You will need to move some of the weight back to lower the tongue weight of the trailer unless the vehicle and hitch have a tongue weight capacity...

  • Availability of a Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The reason that aftermarket hitches cannot be installed on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with a factory installed trailer hitch is because the hitch is welded to the rear cross member and cannot be removed. It the hitch on your truck was installed by the dealer and is bolted on, it can be removed and a new hitch installed in its place. If the hitch is bolted on, we do not carry a Class V hitch for your truck, but we do have a Class IV rated and 1,000 pounds tongue weight capacity and 10,000...

  • Recommended Towing Setup for a 2016 Ram 1500 Without Tow Package
  • I recommend always going for the highest rated hitch that is a confirmed fit. Since your max towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated item in your towing setup, it is much better for your 2016 Ram 1500's towing capacity to be the deciding factor instead of the trailer hitch receiver. Because of this I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15572 which is a Class V hitch with a 2 inch receiver. It has a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) of 15,000 lbs and a Tongue Weight...

  • Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • Yes, you can install a Class V trailer hitch on your 2014 Ram 1500. Curt hitch # C15572 is rated a Class V, but it has a 2 inch receiver. The tongue weight capacity is 1,500 pounds, and the gross trailer weight capacity is 15,000 pounds. You will need to stay within the capacities of the truck though since it is rated lower than the hitch. I have included links to the instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2416....

  • How to Install a Trailer Hitch Receiver with Broken Weld Nuts
  • I've linked a video of the process you'll need to follow since you have a broken weld nut. If you also need replacement hardware for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15572 you can use part # RHK and enter the model number and manufacturer of the hitch.

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 RAM 1500
  • The Curt Hitch part # C15572 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2015 RAM 1500 so I would recommend it for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Harness part # C59496 if you need a 4-way and don't have one. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Curt Manufacturing offers a few different high quality, made in America hitches for your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500. The right hitch for you will depend on what you'll be towing and how much it weighs. If a 6000 lb towing/ 600 lb tongue weight (maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the hitch) will work for you, you can't go wrong with the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13333. For a higher capacity, 10000 lbs towing/1000 lbs tongue weight, go with the Curt Class IV, part...

  • Will a Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Fit on a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 With Factory Installed Hitch
  • The Curt Class V Hitch, # C15409, that you referenced is for 3/4 and 1 ton trucks and will not fit on your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500. The Curt Class V Hitch, # C15572, is the Class V hitch that we carry for your truck, however, it will not fit on your truck if you have a factory installed hitch. Most factory installed hitches on newer Dodge trucks are welded on to the round frame cross tube behind the bumper and the Class V hitch that we carry for your truck will not fit around that hitch....

  • Can 2011 Ram 1500 with 4.7 Liter Engine Tow 7,000 lb Trailer
  • I checked with Ram and for a 2011 Ram 1500 with a 4.7 liter engine the max towing capacity is going to be 7,650 lbs which means that your trailer that would weigh a max of 7,000 lbs would be fine but I'd recommend the use of a weight distribution system since you are so close to the max capacity. A WD system redistributes some of the tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle to help reduce sag, improve handling and braking. For you tongue weight of up to 665 lbs the Reese...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver Upgrade for 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi
  • The factory receiver hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs towing and 500 lb tongue weight. A weight distribution system is recommended for trailers over 5,000 lbs according to the manufacturer's towing guide. For the tongue weight you desire, you can use a Class III hitch or heigher with a weight distribution system. My suggestion is to go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class IV - 2" # 14374 or the Class V options of # C15572 or # 41948. These all have a 2 inch receiver openings...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2011 Dodge Ram
  • On the 2011 Dodge Ram that structural bar isn't a spare tire frame, it is a cross member that links the two frame rails together so it is very strong. This is also where Dodge welds on the factory hitch for trucks that have it. The hitch you choose, no matter where it installs, needs to have the capacity to handle the loaded car hauler. The truck also needs to be rated high enough. The highest capacity hitch for the 1500 series is # C15572 rated for 1500 pounds tongue weight and 15,000...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 that Does Not Require Drilling
  • Curt trailer hitch # 14070 only fits 1-ton cab and chassis models of the 2010 Dodge Ram. So that would be the 3500 cab and no bed. These are the trucks they use to make service vehicles. The highest capacity Curt hitch for a Ram 1500 without a factory trailer hitch is # C15572. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. There is no drilling required for installation but you will need to temporarily move the spare. After installation you will put the spare tire back. The...
