Expert Answers about Tow-Rax

  • Attaching Motorcycle Wheel Chocks to Toy Hauler Floor
  • Since tie down straps like # EM34410 are bearing the vast majority of the weight of the bike, attaching the wheel chock using the # TWPH2770 hardware kit is perfectly acceptable. The chock is merely helping hold the front wheel in place, the tie downs will be doing most of the work.

  • LED Light Output Compared to Halogen for Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light # TWSPRLB2L
  • There isn't an exact comparison but generally it would take a 420 watt halogen light to achieve the same 4,500 lumens produced by Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light # TWSPRLB2L. A standard 50 watt halogen light produces around 400 to 600 lumens. In all likelihood though it would probably take less than 420 watts to produce the same amount of lumens; that is just the high end.

  • Removable Wheel Chock Recommendation for an MVP Toy Hauler Trailer and Harley Davidson Motorcycles
  • For an wheel chock that is easily removable, I recommend the Rackem chock, # RA-17. This chock has a base that mounts to the trailer floor and the chock part can easily be removed by loosening the wing nuts at the front. This chock accepts wheels up to 6-1/2 inches wide.

  • Options for Securing Harley-Davidson Motorcycle in Garage of Toy Hauler
  • The combination of the existing D-rings and the wheel chock that uses the # TWPH2770 mounting hardware for the # TWSPWC sounds as if it'd be an ideal solution for you. Installing the # TWPH2770 would involve drilling holes through the floor of the garage of your toy hauler, but once the mounts were installed, the chock can easily be installed and removed as needed. We don't carry the Condor chocks, but we do offer a similar chock from MaxxTow, part # MT70271, which would be a more permanent...

  • How Far Forward Should Motorcycle Wheel Chocks Be Installed in a Utility Trailer
  • The equalizer of a tandem axle trailer is not the balance point of the trailer. I would recommend putting the wheel chocks of your trailer as far forward as you can in the trailer. This will help prevent any potential sway that can occur from not having enough tongue weight on a trailer.

  • The Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA includes the L-shaped support struts that hold the table in place and allow it to fold down when not in use. You can either do a permanent installation with fasteners you source locally or you can use the Mounting Buttons # TWSP30BK to allow for quick and easy removal and re-installation in another area, such as your garage. If you want the easiest install for two-location use you can use two sets of the mounting buttons, one in the...

  • Mounting Hardware For Tow-Rax Tie Down Anchors
  • The mount stud tie-downs # TWSPDSTD225 will work with Tow-Rax Low-Profile Floor Track for Tie-Down Anchors # TWSP72TA. When using the # TWSPDSTD it has a breaking strength of 5,000 lbs and a working strength of 1,666 lbs. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. Mounting hardware is not included, if you wanted to use bolts and nuts to secure the track you definitely could.

  • Comparing O-Track Cargo Control System And L-Track System
  • I did some research and found that the Erickson O-Track Cargo Control System like part # EM59133 is very similar to the L-Track systems you referenced. The Erickson O-Track is 18 inches long and includes 2 Spring-loaded O-ring clips and mounting hardware. These can be mounted on a wall or on the floor giving you versatility for securing cargo. I have attached a photo that shows what the weight capacities of the clips are when installed. I have attached a product review video for the...

  • Folding Table Recommendation that Can Mount Onto the Side of a Travel Trailer
  • We have a folding table that our customers have mounted to the outside of an enclosed trailer. Check out the Tow-Rax folding table, # TWSP45HFTA. This table is 45-1/2" Long x 18-1/2" Wide and when folded would only add about 3 inches of width to the trailer. I attached a couple pictures of it mounted to the outside of a trailer as well as a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Does Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Aluminum Folding Table Leave Marks on the Wall
  • My technical contact at Tow-Rax does not have any reports of the Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA leaving marks on walls. He also stated that these were originally intended for outdoor (i.e. garage/trailer) use which would actually be more prone to corrosion than an inside application so the chances of corrosion building up when mounted inside is very minimal. This table does have a brushed finish but it is not powder coated. This table was manufactured with the mounting...

  • Do Fasteners On Wheel Chock, # TWSPWM, Need A Special Tool And Are Extra Fasteners Available
  • On the Motorcycle Wheel Chock, # TWSPWM, no special tool is needed to install the anchors to the wooden trailer floor, just a 5/16 inch Allen wrench. The anchors will be recessed into the floor, but the screws that the wheel chock attaches to are above the floor. To install, you will use the wheel chock as a template to mark where you want the holes to be drilled on the trailer floor. Then, you will drill three holes with a 7/16 inch drill bit. After the holes are drilled then you can...

  • Vented Battery Box Recommendation for Inside Enclosed Trailer
  • If you went with a vented battery box like the # TWSP12B you could have it vented outside and not have to worry about using a sealed battery. Otherwise a sealed battery would be best option. There's no easy or fully effective way to charge a trailer battery while towing but a charger like the CTEK 3300 part # CTEK56158 would work well to charge the battery between trips or at a campground.

  • Mounting Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table To Trailer Wall.
  • You have an excellent idea on how to mount the Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA especially if you can't tie into your cross members. The mounting locations on the table are 32 inches apart, not just 16 inches. I confirmed this with the manufacturer, so there're actually further apart than the studs in your walls. So you can use one of the wall studs to connect one of the struts and then place the other 32 inches away using the 2 x4's you're going to add. Use Mounting...

  • Sealed Battery Box with Hose for Venting Outside Recommendation
  • The battery boxes we offer like the part # TWSP12BP that you referenced aren't totally sealed, but this box does come with a hose you could use to vent it. If you wanted to seal up the holes on the sides of the box you would get exactly what you are looking for. There is a rubber seal between the lid and the top of the box.

  • What is Actual Weight Capacity of Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA
  • The actual weight capacity of the Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA is indeed 100-lbs maximum. If you install the table on 1/2-inch plywood with the mounting screws going into wall studs you should be able to realize the table's full 100-lb capacity. You are correct that how/where you mount the table will affect capacity to an extent but in no circumstances will any installation offer more than 100-lbs total weight bearing capability.

  • Can the Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table be Mounted on the Outside of a Trailer
  • You could potentially install the Tow-Rax folding table, # TWSP45HFTA, to the outside of a trailer. As long as the extra 4 inches the table will add to the trailer does not exceed the legal width a trailer can be in your area AND as long as you were to add some additional security to keep it in the folded position AND as long as you used additional fasteners to hold the mounting brackets on (to account for wind when driving) then it is possible. You may need to check the laws in your...

  • Power Source for Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light Bucket # TWSPRLB2L
  • The Tow-Rax Recessed Halogen runs on 120v AC power. The lamp is flush mounted, so it will not change the width of a trailer but a mounting hole would need to be made in the surface where you want to install the lamp.

  • Availability of Removable Wheel Chocks For ATVs To Mount on Trailer Floor
  • The motorcycle wheel chocks we offer, such as the # TWSPWFKM are compatible with tires up to 6-1/2 inches wide, so they wouldn't be a good alternative for your ATV. We do have some alternatives that could work well for you though. The # PK-WTD from Pack'Em includes 2 chocks, the strap and mounting hardware. The chocks are permanently mounted, but they only sit about 1-5/8 inches off the floor, so they won't get in the way. Using E-Track like part # E19148 for a 5 foot length, # EM59150...

  • Can Motorcycle Wheel Chock Be Installed in Trailer Floor with Mesh Floor
  • You'd have to get somewhat creative to install a motorcycle wheel chock like the part # TWSPWC3BT to a mesh floor trailer. Ideally I'd recommend you mount the chock to a piece of plywood and then mount the wood to the mesh floor or remove it each time you use it.

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Honda 1300 VTX
  • To haul your Honda 1300 VTX, I recommend using a utility trailer and mounting a wheel chock like part # TWSPWM to the deck. Because of the size of your bike, I do not recommend using a hitch mounted carrier. Most of the hitch mounted motorcycle carriers were designed for smaller dirt bikes and street bikes.

  • Can a Wheel Chock be Safely Mounted to and Used on a Plywood Floor
  • Since the floor of the trailer is 1/2 inch thick plywood I recommend mounting the Tow-Rax wheel chock # TWSPWC through the floor and attaching it directly to the frame of the trailer. Or, as an alternative, you could attach a steel backing plate on the other side of the plywood floor and attach the chock to that. This will disperse the weight better. Once you have the chocks secured in one of the manners above and tie down the bikes it will be safe!

  • Should Motorcycle Wheel Chocks # MWCB be Centered on a Trailer
  • Ideally, you would want the load to be centered side to side on a trailer. Front to back is another issue because its position on the trailer will change the tongue weight. You will want the tongue weight to be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. To get it just right, I recommend a tongue weight scale like # 5780, or follow the steps in the FAQ I have linked for determining trailer tongue weight. Having a centered load with the correct tongue weight will reduce the possibility...
