Expert Answers about Torklift

  • How to Power Interior Lights of an Enclosed Trailer
  • The best way for you to power the interior lights of your enclosed trailer is with a mounted 12V battery. To do this, mount the battery with a battery box like # TLA7708R and use a junction box # 38656 to tap into your 7-way. You will also need ring terminals # 44-5310A, and wire # 12-1-1 to run to each light. You will also want a light switch such as the Pollak rocker switch # PK34308 or toggle switch # PK34571. You will be able to charge the battery when the 7-way is attached to your...

  • What is the Difference Between the Torklift Fast Gun and Derringer Truck Camper Turnbuckles
  • The main difference between the Torklift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles, # TLS9522-2-LK, and the AnchorGuard Derringer Turnbuckles, # TLS9020, is how the camper tie-downs are mounted on your truck. The FastGun # TLS9522-2-LK are designed to be used with frame mounted camper tie-downs. These tie-downs will mount to the frame of the truck giving a strong base to connect the turnbuckles to the camper and the truck. The AnchorGuard Derringer turnbuckles are designed to be used with bed...

  • Solar Panel Battery Charger Recommendation for Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • A solar panel would work well for you with this application. I recommend the Solar Power Kit from Torklift # TLA7713. This is a 10 watt panel that will maintain the charge to boost the life of your battery and bring a battery back from 50-percent life. We recently installed this solar panel on a trailer to maintain the charge on a battery. I have attached a review and installation video of this solar panel for you. If you plan on using this solar panel with a single battery, you...

  • Recommendation For Camper Tie-Downs For 2006 GMC 2500
  • If you do not have the step underneath then the The Torklift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs, Item # TLC2204, is a confirmed fit for your 2006 GMC 2500. If you do have the step underneath then you will need Item # TLC4203. The Torklift mounts to attachment points at the front of your truck. It helps to shift the weight of your camper so that you are not top heavy. You will also need the Torklift Frame Mounted Camper Ties for the rear of your vehicle, Item # TLC3206, which works...

  • Can 4-Step TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps Be Used in Place of a Factory 3-Step System
  • When replacing steps on a 5th wheel trailer you will want to stay with the same number of steps unless going to more steps retains the same retracted dimensions of your existing steps. For aftermarket steps there is no fit information in regards to specific trailers. You would have to go by the measurements. TorkLift steps # TLA8004 have a mounting base that is 27-7/16 inches wide and 12 inches deep. When retracted the steps hang down 16-17 inches from where they mount. The 3-step model,...

  • Recommended Front and Rear Camper Tie-Downs for 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD With 8' Bed
  • Thanks for the info, but I do need a little more. Is your Silverado a 1500, 2500 or 3500 and if 1500 or 2500 is it HD or LD? Also, I'd need your bed size and if the hitch is from the factory or is an aftermarket hitch. If you can get back to me with that info I'd be happy to find you the correct tie-downs.

  • Recommended TorkLift 4-Step Assembly for 2017 Grand Design Reflection Trailer
  • I checked with Torklift and was able to confirm that the correct 4-Step Assembly for your 2017 Grand Design Reflection is the GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps # TLA8004. This will be perfect for replacing the factory 3-step assembly on your trailer. This features 8 inch deep and 22 inch wide aluminum steps that provide 3 different height settings. Glow tape will create a lighted step surface for nighttime applications. The mounting base itself measures 27-7/16 inches wide and 12 inches...

  • TorkLift Camper Tie Downs for 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Short Bed, with Cab Steps and Reese Hitch
  • If the tube step on your 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed is only under the cab of the truck and no part of it is attached beyond the back of the cab then you would look at the tie downs for models without a board or step under the truck bed and with a non-TorkLift aftermarket hitch. For the front you could then use # TLC2205. For the rear, # TLR3501. The rear tie downs will only work on aftermarket hitches that have side plates with at least a 4" x 4" footprint which seems to be...

  • Comparison Of Aluminum And Steel TorkLift Talon Custom Camper Tie-Downs For 2014 Ford F-150
  • You are correct. The difference between part # TLF2014 and part # TLF2014A is the constructions. The # TLF2014 is constructed of powder-coated steel and includes the hardware. Part # TLF2014A is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and has a powder-coated finish as well. This kit also includes the hardware and the finishing kit, part # TLA7009. The finishing kit has foam blocks to insert in the brackets to keep dirt out and rubber caps for the front receivers. Both tie-down sets have...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 15,000 lb Box Trailer
  • I do have a solution for you but unfortunately you do have to use a TorkLift XL Shank like part # TLM9011 along with the SuperHitch on your tow vehicle to be able to use the Everest Weight Distribution System # TLWD1000. If 15,000 lbs is the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of your trailer or that is the most it will weigh when you are towing it then you can potentially use the Strait-Line # RP66075 instead. This is rated to tow up to a 17,000 lb trailer and it has a tongue weight...

  • What Turnbuckles are Recommended for Torklift Frame Mount Tie-Downs on a 2010 Nissan Frontier
  • To maintain the warranty of the Torklift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs, # TLN2409 and # TLR3500, for your 2010 Nissan Frontier, you will want 4 spring loaded turnbuckles like the Torklift SpringLoad XL Turnbuckles, # TLS9050A or the FastGun Turnbuckles, # TLS9526. Torklift requires spring loaded turnbuckles for frame mounted tie-downs due to the tension they provide. As you mentioned, these are sold in quantities of two so you would want two sets of the turnbuckle you choose. Torklift...

  • Is there a 12 Inch Long Hitch Extender Rated for Towing a 10,000 lbs Trailer with a 2014 Ram 3500
  • The hitch extenders that are rated for 10,000 pounds are all for tow bar applications only so we have to take a different approach. If you have the factory trailer hitch that is welded onto your 2014 Ram 3500 then the best option would be to add TorkLift SuperHitch # TLD1108 and then use SuperTruss Extender # TLE1521. When using the SuperTruss extender you would have to then use weight distribution to get the capacity to 14,000 pounds.

  • Distance from RV Frame to First Step for the Torklift Glow Steps
  • I spoke with my contact at Torklift and he informed me that from the mounting surface of where the Torklift Steps part # TLA8004 attaches down to the first step measures 3 inches in the highest setting. He also said that there is a 3 way adjustment you can make for the position of the step that will change that distance. Highest is 3 inches, middle is 5 inches, and lowest is 7 inches.

  • Battery Box Recommendation for Two Batteries on a Trailer Tongue
  • The part # TLA7708R is a heavy duty battery box that can carry up to two batteries depending on dimensions of them. This box has dimensions of 26-3/4" long x 8-3/16" wide x 13" tall. The universal design of this box would allow you to install it easily on your trailer tongue.

  • The TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA8004 referenced in your question is a 4-step assembly with a step platform dimension of 22 inches wide and 8 inches deep. The mounting base measures 27-7/16 inches wide and 12 inches deep and the steps have a drop/rise of 7-1/2 inches. The height of the steps when collapsed is 16-17 inches and the height from the top of step opening to the ground can be adjusted from 32-1/2 inches to 40 inches. These pull-out steps feature...

  • Battery Box That Will Fit Four 6-Volt Batteries
  • The TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7710R has dimensions of 58-1/2" long x 7-5/8" wide x 12-3/4" tall so the four six volt batteries you have should be able to fit in the box with room for another one. This same battery box with a solar panel # TLA7710RS is available to provide power to the batteries. The TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box is made in the United States of America and comes with a lifetime warranty.

  • Longest Available 2-Inch Hitch Extensions for Use with Truck Bed Camper
  • For a 2-inch hitch the longest hitch extensions we offer are the 60-inch # TLE1560 and 48-inch # TLE1548, both from TorkLift. However, these only work along with a TorkLift brand SuperHitch dual-receiver type hitch that has the strength and included safety chains to handle the extra stress from the trailer load being further from the hitch. To use one of these you will need to also install a SuperHitch. The longest standard 2-inch hitch extension that will work in any hitch is 18-inches,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2000 Ford Excursion
  • The 2000 Ford Excursion is actually rated for 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight. The 18,000 pounds is the gross combined weight rating or GCWR. The GCWR is the most that the Excursion and trailer can weigh including cargo, passengers, and fuel. So the Excursion cannot tow 18,000 pounds and its weight plus the trailers weight cannot exceed 18,000 pounds. The trailer can weigh up to 10,000 pounds total but no more. With that said the highest capacity trailer hitch we have for your...

  • 3 Foot Hitch Extension For 2-1/2 Inch Receiver Opening
  • For your Superhitch Magnum like # TLF1003-30 confirmed to fit a Ford F-550, the hitch comes with the 2 inch reducer to make it compatible with the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension for SuperHitch Trailer Hitch Receivers - 36" Long # TLE1536. There is not a truss extension that will give you the 2-1/2 inch opening at the end of it. Even the single extensions like # RP45292 that is 34 inches long, the 2-1/2 inch receiver opening is reduced to 2 inches at the end of the extension. For...

  • Hitch, Weight Distribution And Towing Accessories to Tow 12,000 lb Boat with 2000 Ford F350
  • Unless you're planning on carrying a truck bed camper again, the Torklift # TLF1002-30 Hitch you referenced would be overkill for you. A Class V hitch like the Curt # C15410 would be a less expensive option. For a ball mount, use the Draw-Tite # 40331 with the # 19286 2-5/16 inch trailer ball. Anytime the weight of what you're towing exceeds half the weight of the tow vehicle, weight distribution is recommended. To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine...

You should see two part numbers on the part number line. The first part # TLT2309 is the front brackets and the second part # TLT3306 is the rear brackets. These brackets are designed for trucks without running boards or tube steps and with a factory installed trailer hitch. If you have running boards, no...

  • Can the TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7710R be Sealed
  • TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7710R, if used as a battery box, will have to have some ventilation which means that it isn't going to be completely waterproof. Battery boxes can't be sealed because lead acid, AGM, and Gel batteries produce a combustible gas. There are also some battery chargers that have a warning about using them with proper ventilation. It will let water in and if you don't seal up the bottom it will let the water right back out again. If you mounted...

  • Recommended 41" to 48" Hitch Extender for a 2 inch Hitch Receiver
  • For a hitch extender that sits between 41 and 48 inches out and is compatible with a 2 inch hitch receiver you will need to use a TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension like part # TLE1548 which is 48 inches long. These extenders work great but they are only compatible with the TorkLift SuperHitches, like part # TLF1002 which fits certain years and models of Ford Pickups. If you let me know what the year/make/model is of your truck I can let you know which SuperHitch is the correct...

  • The TorkLift PowerArmor battery box # TLA7708RS has the following internal dimensions: 26-1/2" long x 7-3/8" wide x 12-9/16" tall. You would have to place your batteries next to each other and measure them to determine if both will fit in this box. Provided the batteries are wired as a 12 volt system the solar panel can charge them. But charging 2 batteries will take twice as long. The batteries would need to be at least at 50 percent charge for the solar panel to charge them up. A...
