Expert Answers about Hitch Covers


  • 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,...

  • How to Choose Correct Width Lippert Solid Step Folding RV Steps
  • 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...

  • Is There A Storage Container Option That Will Go Under The Lippert SolidSteps?
  • If you are looking to upgrade the steps on your RV with something like the Lippert SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps # LC791573, as an example, there is indeed an option for a storage box that will sit in place of the old steps. This will be dependent on the size of the area however, as the # LC791573 steps will fit a doorway that measures 29" to 36" wide and the SolidStep Locking RV Storage Box # LC664640 measures 27-1/4" long and 11-5/16" deep.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • How to Measure for Correct Axle Replacement
  • To replace your axle you'll want to measure your hub-face (A) and spring-seat (B) dimensions of your current axle (see attached) and choose one with the same measurements.

This axle doesn't come with brakes or a hub so you'll either need to transfer ones from your current axle or you would need...

  • How to Transport 18 Foot Hobie Tandem Island Pedal Kayak

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...

  • As far as using an anti-rattle device with the 2" Hitch Cap Sensor for GMC Sierra MultiPro and Chevy Silverado Multi-Flex Tailgate # C56UR, it depends on what style of anti-rattle device you have. For example, if you have an anti-rattle hitch pin like the # 63232, these will not interfere with the # C56UR. However, while not specifically tested, if you have a harness-style anti-rattle device like the Pro Series Anti-Rattle Device for 2" x 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers # PS63091, these will...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Recommendation for 1999 BMW 3-Series
  • Curt offers two different hitches for the 1999 BMW 3-series. For the Sedan, use # C11174. If you have the convertible or the coupe, you'd use # C11177. 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. The 1-1/4 inch refers to the dimensions of the receiver tube that the ball mount inserts into. While the 1-7/8 inch dimension refers to...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for Use with Sidewinder Pivoting Pin Box
  • For a short-bed pickup like your 2014 Silverado 2500 with 6-1/2-foot bed that will be used with a trailer that has a Sidewinder (sometimes also called a Revolution) pivoting pin box, you can use a fixed (non-sliding) type hitch. These generally cost less, have fewer moving parts to maintain and are lighter than their slider counterparts. Both the hitch and the Sidewinder pin box you choose naturally need to be rated appropriately for the weight of the trailer. In addition, the Sidewinder...

  • Will The Chevy Bowtie LED Trailer Hitch Cover Illuminate When Tail Light/Reverse Light Are Activated

  • It's going to depend on which trailer connector assembly your truck is using. If it's something like # HM40975, what you're proposing won't work because both of the protective covers over each trailer connector cannot be opened far enough at the same time due to the hinge design. However, we have a good solution. You can use the # HM48470 instead of the factory connector. This will allow a lighted hitch cover like the # CR-007XL you'd looked at to work perfectly.

However, if you you are looking at a hitch cover that is a little more unique, like the part # HTCC11805, then I do recommend going with a locking hitch pin like part # e98880 as opposed to a typical pin and clip like part # PC3.

  • Lighted Trailer hitch Cover that has Tail Light, Brake Light, and Turn Signal Functions
  • Usually, people want the exact opposite; for it not to blink with either turn signal. The reason that it blinks with just the right turn signal is because the 4-Way connector for a trailer has combined brake and turn signals and only one wire and a ground is used to power the light, in this case the green right turn/brake light wire. For a lighted cover that has turn signal functions you could use # CR-007XL.

  • Why Does Dodge Brake Light Trailer Hitch Cover for 2
  • Trailer connectors on vehicles and wiring on trailers have turn signals and brake lights combined on the same circuit. Since the lighted hitch cover # CR-007D plugs into a 4-Way flat connector on the vehicle it uses that combined circuit. It doesn't have a converter to separate out the turn signal function from the brake light so when you use the right turn signal it will blink. Brake lights will not override the turn signal on trailer wiring.
