  • Hole Spacing and Diameter for Electric Bracket on Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75782
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure the electrical bracket on Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # 75782 for you. There are actually 3 holes. From the center of the far left one to the center of the nearest hole measures 1-3/4 inches. From the center of the far left one to the center of the far right one measures 2-1/4 inches. The holes have a diameter of 0.21 inches so 3/16 inch hardware will fit nicely. Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat Item...

  • Will 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket HM40975 Fit a 1997 Ford F-150 Flareside w/Factory 7-Way
  • On the back of your factory 7-Way trailer connector on your 1997 Ford F-150 the wiring harness should plug into the back of it meaning it can be removed. If that is indeed the case with yours then you can install 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket - Vehicle End Item # HM40975 in its place. I have linked a video that shows installation for you. I do not anticipate a problem because all of the replacement 7-Ways listed for your truck install in the same way.

  • Recommended Louvered Tailgate For 2017 Ford F-250
  • Not having room to open your tailgate fully when you are towing your fifth wheel hitch is not uncommon. What a lot of people do is remove the factory tailgate and replace it with a fifth wheel tailgate that has a cutout for the king pin. For your 2017 F-250 I recommend the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series Louvered Tailgate # VG-15-4000. This custom tailgate has louvers that help reduce drag. I have attached a link to an installation video for this tailgate you can check out. You can...

  • Torklift GlowStep Recommendation for RV with Bracket Height of 35 inches

  • What Suspension Enhancement Kit for 2016 Ford E-350 Does the Best to Fight Sway
  • Actually the best suspension enhancement we can offer for your 2016 Ford E-350 for curbing sway would be the SuperSprings part # SSA34.

A coworker of mine installed these on his vehicle and he said it made it handle much better and go rid of all of the body roll he once had. This kit is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and would work well.

  • Parts Needed to Add 7-Way and High Capacity Trailer Hitch to 2003 Ford E-350
  • If your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do have trailer brakes you would need the # ETBC7 instead of the # 37185 and a brake controller. This kit comes with everything needed to wire up the 7-way and install a brake controller. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how...

  • Is a Sliding 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Required to Tow with a 2007 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • Since your 2007 Ford F-150 has a 6-1/2 foot bed you will need a sliding fifth wheel hitch unless the trailer has a Revolution or Sidewinder pin box. Without either you likely won't have enough clearance to execute sharp turns without the truck and trailer making contact. I recommend the Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550022. The Hijacker is an auto sliding hitch so there's no need to get out of your truck when you're executing turns. Most sliding hitches require you to get out of the...

My contact at Demco confirmed that if your hitch is labelled Ultra or UL you will use rail kit # DM6014 along with bracket kit # DM8552001. If the hitch is labelled SL you will use rail kit # DM6012 along with bracket kit # DM8553001. If you need an in-bed wiring harness you can use # 50-97-410 which plugs right in at your factory 7-way.

  • Increasing Distance Between Trailer Axle and Trailer Frame
  • The ideal solution to get more distance between your axle and the trailer frame is to use an over/under conversion kit. This will allow you to move the axle below the leaf springs giving you the additional height you are looking for. There are 2 over under conversion kits (1 kit needed per axle): # K71-384-00 is used for 2-3/8 inch diameter round axles # K71-385-00 is used for 3 inch diameter round axles If your axle is a different size then the solution is to replace all the...

  • Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a 2005 Ford E-350 Van

This sliding hitch will mount directly to the factory receiver pucks that are built into the underbed rails. The hitch has a gross towing weight of 24,000 pounds and a slider travel of 12 inches that will provide the necessary clearance for sharp turns. This unit also features an adjustable height setting between 17-1/2 and 21-1/2 inches. I have attached a short video review...

You just need a tape measure to do this. Park the truck on level ground and then measure form the ground to the top of the receiver opening. Then measure the distance from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the hitch height is greater you will need a ball mount with a drop. If...

  • Recommended Front Hitch Receiver For 2017 Ford F-250
  • Adding a front hitch to your 2017 Ford F-250 Diesel 4x4 Off Road will reduce your bumper clearance in the front by about 3 inches but if you have the air dam on the front, that will hang lower than the receiver. I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65076 due to the price point. This hitch and the Curt # C31078 are very similar and price at this time is really the only notable difference. Either hitch will work well to push your trailer...

  • Why are RVs So Prone to Swaying and Why Don't Chassis Manufacturers have a Solution
  • The issue with RV chassis's is that the manufacturers (like Ford) make them but they don't know where the weight of the RV is going to be and since every RV is made a little bit different it's hard for them to foresee exactly how every RV will react on the highway. Best option though is to go with a heavier duty rear sway bar. Which for that you'd want the Roadmaster kit part # RM-1139-147 which is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Jayco Redhawk on an E-450 chassis.

  • Will Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Fit a 2008 Ford F-150 with 1-1/2 Inch Suspension Lift
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 # AL57200 doesn't fit with all suspension lifts. It depends on the location of the bump stop strike plate. If you can send me pictures I can verify whether it will work for your or not. If you don't have a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch in your truck you can use the Ride Control # AL59544 instead. This kit will work with your lift as is.

  • What is the Best Sway Control Option for a 2010 Ford Expedition and 33-Foot Jayco?
  • One could certainly make a good argument that the Reese Strait-Line is your best option for sway control with a weight distribution system. The Strait-Line's dual cams you referenced essentially control the placement of the spring bars and self-adjust as needed. The system also allows an easy way to tilt the system's head by using serrated washers instead of continually piling them on top of one another. Before choosing a weight distribution system for your 2010 Ford Expedition, you...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights After Installation of 7-Way Socket on 2004 Ford Expedition

Similar items like # 37185 allow this same format change but use a 4-pole connector that joins your original 4-pole, thereby requiring that you make only three spliced connections for the other circuits.

  • Troubleshooting Electric-over-Hydraulic Disc Brakes on RV Towed by 2015 Ford F-350 King Ranch

Not all brake controllers work with EOH set-ups; many work only with electric drum brakes.

It features an adjustable height of 12 inches to 16 inches and a towing capacity of 20,000 pounds. If you have a short bed truck, I instead recommend the Convert-A-Ball with Offset # CAB-C5GX1216.

  • Wire Gauge for 12V Power Feed on 7-Way on 2016 Ford F-150
  • OEM trailer wiring will typically use larger-gauge wire for ground, trailer brakes and 12V trailer power, either 12-gauge like # 12-1-1 or heavier 10-gauge like # 10-1-1. The other wires for the basic lighting signals are usually 16-gauge. Vehicle manufacturers can change the color of the wires they use in production without any notice so confirming with a circuit tester like # 3808 or # 40376 is the best way to verify the function carried on any wire.

Instead a Yakima rack that consists of part # Y00409, # Y00124, and # Y00658 would be your best option as it fits the truck well and won't require you to drill holes in the roof. Then for a couple J-style kayak carriers the JayLow part # Y04073 would work well to carry both of your kayaks.
