  • How Does the Handle Work on the Lippert Components Spare Tire Winch 159056
  • There are going to be two parts to the handle that you will need to operate the Lippert Components Spare Tire Winch part # LC159056. The first of which is the intermediate shaft or what Lippert calls a Crank Extension part # LC1315411. This will be installed directly on the winch and permanently mounted on the trailer.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru WRX with Torklift EcoHitch Installed
  • For your 2018 Subaru WRX the TorkLift EcoHitch part # 306-X7257 (2 inch hitch) is a great hitch option as it can hide behind the bumper panel when not needed. If you check out the picture I attached of this hitch installed you'll see that the opening appears to be recessed behind the bumper a couple inches. Now the Swagman XC part # S64650 has a curve in the shank pretty close to where the rack slides into the hitch so it would be too close to call, but I have a better option all-around...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015-2018 Ford F-150 Behind a Motorhome
  • In order to flat-tow a thirteenth generation (2015-2018) Ford F-150 with all four wheels on the ground behind a motorhome you are going to need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tail light wiring harness, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. There may also be a few other smaller components that are needed depending on options the vehicle is equipped with. For a tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676. The Nighthawk...

  • Choosing Between Roadmaster Spare Tire Carriers RM-195225 and RM-195125

The things that matter are the tire size on the RV and of course the spare, the hitch height and the RV's own stance above ground, which is a function of the total load in it.

The EcoHitch is constructed from an alloy of recycled metals, which is something people do value and is the reason some people opt to go for it. That said, the Curt and Draw-Tite are going to be more cost-effective and they also have higher capacities than the 3,500 lb...

  • Comparing the Curt Spectrum Brake Controller to Redarc Tow-Pro Elite
  • By all accounts the Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller # C51170 works well and is easy to use and install on most vehicles. It is a brand new item so not a lot of feedback has come in on it. I did learn a few things though after speaking with our install team about this controller. First, compared to the Redarc controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, the Curt Spectrum is easier to install. It can be surface mounted meaning that drilling is not necessarily required (depends on how you run the...

Though these are photos of the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13382, the two hitches are the same except for the etrailer hitch has a matte black finish compared to the gloss black finish of the Curt hitch, which basically just means the etrailer hitch has a bit more of a rugged look and isn't quite as prone to scratches.

  • Hooking a Gooseneck Trailer with RV 7-Way Plug to 1999 International 9100 7-Way Round Plug
  • The first thing that you need is the Pollak Trailer Connector Adapter # PK12-724 which converts the 7-Way round connector on your 1999 International 9100 to a 7-Way blade style connector. This will plug into your 9100 and provide a pace to connect the gooseneck trailer wiring. The next step is to then use the Roadmaster Brite-Lite Wiring Converter # RM-732 on your trailer side wiring right behind the 7-Way. This converter takes separate brake and turn signals and combines them so that...

  • Will Blue Ox Patriot Braking System Drain Battery on Honda Fit

I recommend checking the owner's manual for your Honda Fit for any guidelines or steps that need to be taken before flat towing. Many vehicles will require that the battery be disconnected for this reason....

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Subaru Ascent for Hitch Bike Rack
  • Between the Draw-Tite hitch # 76253 and the EcoHitch # 306-X7381 that both fit your 2019 Subaru Ascent if it were my money I would get the Draw-Tite. Both hitches will take about the same time for installation (2+ hours) but because the Draw-Tite has a much higher tongue weight (TW) rating of 750-lbs versus 500-lbs for the EcoHitch, and because it costs a good bit less, I would go that route. Tongue weight capacity is what matters most for using a bike rack. But if you prefer a USA-made...

  • Will Two 12V Batteries be Enough to Power the 3000W Go Power Inverter # 34275013 for a Short Time
  • You can use two 12V batteries to power the Go Power Inverter # 34275013 but that all depends on what size 12V batteries you plan on using what "short periods of use" means. I reached out to my contact at Go Power and he said that if you are using deep cycle batteries and the load is not too excessive then you should be fine. For example, if you were trying to pull the full 3000 Watts out of the inverter that would be about 26 Amps AC or 260 Amps DC. If you were to run this for a half...

  • Difference Between Curt Q24, Q25 and A25 Fifth Wheel Hitches for 2016 Ford Rail Kit
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and he said the difference between the Curt Q25 # C16039 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and the Q24 # C16545-16017 is that the pan is slightly larger on the Q25 and they reinforced the main square body as well as the legs for that extra capacity. The A25 # C16036 is a rebranded Q25 with a head that is made of stronger material. I would say yes, the Reese # RP30871 is better.

If the brakes apply, then you know you do not have free backing brakes. If you can move it easily, then your brakes are free backing. If your coupler is broken and thus the reason you are replacing then you will need to go to the second testing option. You will need to pull one of your hubs...
