Expert Answers about Tow Ready

  • Comparing Tow Ready and Roadmaster Diode Wiring Kits for Flat Towing
  • The biggest difference between the Tow Ready Tail Light Isolating Diode System # TR118821 and the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154 is that Tow Ready created their wiring kit with quick disconnects so if you ever get a new vehicle you can take the kit with you. The Roadmaster option can also be removed but you would have to splice all of the wiring again as the quick disconnects don't match up the way the Tow Ready option does. Both are great options and I'm sure...

  • Mounting Bracket For Trailer Side 4-Way Connector
  • For your trailer side 4-way connector, I recommend the Hopkins Mounting Box for 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48755. This can mount to the tongue or coupler on your trailer and keep your 4-way clean and out of the elements. Other options are the Hopkins Fold-Over Mounting Bracket for 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48595 or the Tow Ready Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144 which can work on the trailer side just as well as the vehicle side.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness For 2016 Nissan Frontier With Factory Tow Package
  • Since all of the Frontiers include the wiring, they may not have the factory tow package on the vehicle. You can easily check this out two ways. Remove the passenger side kick panel and look to see if the harness with the relays are present. If not then you will need to get a wiring harness like part # C56225. This kit includes the relays needed to activate the tow package on your Frontier. Another way to check is to find the gray connector with the cap on it that is located along the driver...

  • Carrying 2 Bikes on a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack on a 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • You are correct the hitch receivers for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, like # 24949, are 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch receivers. You can use an expander like # 80303. This will provide you with a 2 inch receiver on your Golf Alltrack. However, the hitch has a tongue weight of only 200 pounds and using an adapter will reduce that by 50 percent. So that means your bikes can only weigh a total of only about 50 pounds since the Thule T2 Pro # TH9034XTS is 52 pounds. Instead of using...

  • How to Connect Trailer 7-Way to 2017 Toyota Highlander with Factory 4-Way
  • We have just what you need to tow your camper with your new 2017 Toyota Highlander. First, if your Coleman Popup Camper does not have electric brakes and you are only needing to power its rear signal lights, I recommend installing the Tow Ready Adapter Vehicle End # 30717. This will plug right into the 4-Way connector on your Highlander to provide a 7 pole round plug to hook up with your trailer. You will simply tie off the remaining wires from the adapter as they will not be needed...

  • Recommended 3 Inch Lunette Ring Over 2-1/2 Inch Alternative
  • The standard size lunette ring is 3 inches like the Demco Lunette Ring - Adjustable Channel Mount - 3" Diameter - Black - 25,000 lbs # DM09557-81. The 2-1/2 inch rings will not fit in the adjustable channel mounts where the vast majority of the 3 inch rings are designed for that style application. All of our pintle hooks like # 63014 are designed to work with the 3 inch lunette ring. There will be come movement, but there is not excessive slop. There needs to be some movement with this...

  • Easy to Load Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes
  • No problem, you just need the right bike rack so you won't have to lift your heavy bikes onto or off of the rack! For that there is one option but it is a fantastic option. It is the Thule EasyFold # TH903202. It comes with ramps so you just have to roll the bikes on or off. It has a capacity of 65 pound per bike so it can handle your 48 pound electric bikes with ease! This is by far the best bike rack for your needs. It is also the only one with ramps like this. I included a picture showing...

  • Recommendation For Mounting Wire Harness With Connector For 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • It sounds like you already have a hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Hitch, Item # 75229, and a vehicle wiring harness like The Tekonsha T-One Wiring Harness, Item # 118681. Going with this assumption, the wiring harness will plug into your OEM package behind your rear bumper. You will have to remove an access cover to get access and you can either store the connector side beneath your hitch under your 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport or you can mount it. To mount the connector,...

  • Separating Out a Combined Brake Light and Turn Signal to Have Separate Turn Signals and Brake Lights
  • We do have converters that do separate out the combined brake light and turn signal but # TR118821 is not one of them. What you can use instead is tail light converter # 118158 or # C56196. They both do the same thing. The white input wire is ground (earth), yellow is combined left turn signal and brake light, and green is combined right turn and brake light. On the output side you will have the yellow wire for left turn signal only, green for right turn signal only, and red for brake...

  • Compatibility of Hopkins 40950 Trailer Connector with Tow Ready Pigtail Wiring Harness 20147
  • The Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way Harness and Socket for Factory Tow Package # 20147 is a factory style pigtail that is compatible with the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector - Vehicle End # HM40950. These factory style connectors are called US Car Connectors and they are absolutely compatible with each other as well as many others. You may also want to consider the Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware # PK12711U and the Curt No-Drill Bracket for...

  • Safety Chain Weight Ratings and Dimensions
  • Safety chains or safety cables should be rated for the full loaded trailer weight. Most of the safety chains we have that are rated for your 6300-lb loaded trailer weight will have clevis or S hook connectors that are larger than 5/16-inch. Titan 5K Chain part # TCTSCG30-736-04X1 measures 36-inches from the edge of the end link to the edge of the hook, but the hook's diameter is 3/8-inches which is slightly larger than the 5/16-inch so it sounds like this would not work for you. An adjustable...

  • Troubleshooting No Power at Factory Trailer Wiring Plug on 2014 Nissan Frontier
  • If you are not getting any power at the factory port where the Curt Wiring Harness # C55441 plugs into, this actually may indicate that your 2014 Nissan Frontier is not equipped with the factory tow package. The existing Curt harness will still plug into the factory port like you see on your vehicle, but without the tow package you will still need to add a relay harness for the port to become active. This relay harness is included with the Curt T-Connector # C56225. It is not available...

  • Replacement 7-Way and 4-Way Recommendation for 1999 Ford F-250
  • For a 7-way harness that will plug into the square trailer wiring connector of your 1999 Ford F-250. You would want the part # 118243 which is a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to swap out the 7-way with one that includes a 4-way as well you could use the part # HM40950 to get both.

  • Recommended Locking J-Pin For Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
  • The J-Pin I recommend for your Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 75916 is part # 63201. The second hole on the hitch is designed for an anti-rattle pin like # 63201. This pin comes with the lock to secure it and prevent theft and a wrench to tighten the pin to reduce rattle. I have attached a link to a demonstration video for this pin you can check out.

  • 2017 Nissan Frontier 7-Way Trailer Wiring Connector Recommendation

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, 4-Way, and 6-Way Wiring for 2018 Toyota Sienna
  • For your 2018 Toyota Sienna I do recommend installing a 4-Way harness and then going with a 4-Way to 6-Way adapter for when it's time to tow the pop-up camper. This will be the easiest and most reliable method for your vehicle. As you mentioned in your question your Sienna has a separate wiring system, which means the brake and turn signals are sent along separate wires. Because of this a powered converter is needed to not only safeguard the vehicle's wiring and provide enough power...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V to Use 2 inch Hitch Bike Rack
  • We have the # HTAD which converts a 1-1/4 inch hitch to a 2 inch hitch but since these adapters cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent and add some movement this isn't an ideal solution. Instead the customers best option would be a 2 inch hitch like the # 76128 which will work directly with the bike rack.

  • Are Blue Nissan Relays 38666-1 and C57000 the Same Item
  • Yes, the single blue 4-terminal relay # 38666-1 is the same as those included in the Relay Kit # C57000. The single part is offered as a replacement when only the one part is needed.

  • Installing Roadmaster Diode Wiring Kit # RM-15267 with Separate Wiring on RV and Towed Vehicle
  • If both your motorhome and towed vehicle have a 3-wire system (separate stop and tail lights), then a converter like the Tow Ready # 118158 should not actually be needed. The converter is only needed if your motorhome has a 2-wire system (combined stop and tail lights) and your towed vehicle has the separate, 3-wire system. I have attached a wiring diagram that shows exactly how the kit should be installed for your specific application, where both the motorhome and vehicle have a separate...

  • Adapter for Truck Wiring To Wire Third Brake Light of Camper Shell
  • What you can do is use the converter box part # 118158 wired to either you taillight wiring or trailer wiring and you'll have a dedicated stoplight circuit on the red wire. If you ground the white wire and then run the green wire to the right turn circuit and the yellow to the left turn on the input side of the box the red wire on the output side of the box will have just the stoplight.

  • Front Mount Hitch for a 1998 Ford F-150 2WD
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt who said that your 2WD 1998 Ford F-150 doesn't come with the tow hooks which is why their front mount hitch # 31049 will not fit. When I asked if the hitch could be installed if you purchased and installed the front tow hooks he said it would be compatible then. So the reason you have been having trouble is because of those tow hooks not existing on your pickup. Sometimes the license plate mount part # C31002 will need to be installed as well but it doesn't...

  • How to Select Correct Ball Mount to Keep Pop-Up Camper Trailer Level When Hitched
  • When selecting a ball mount and 2-inch hitch ball for towing your pop-up camper you will want to choose a ball mount that allows the hitched trailer to remain level. The article I linked for you shows how to choose the right 2-inch ball mount with the correct rise or drop to keep your trailer level. Level trailers tow much better. I linked our page for 2-inch ball mounts, some of which include the hitch ball, such as Curt # C45036 which offers 2-inches of drop. If you choose a separate...

  • How to Determine if 2005 Nissan Frontier has Tow Package for Installing Trailer Wiring
  • The pin needed to install the # 118263 will be on the frame of the truck, but what matters most is whether or not the rest of the tow package wiring will be present. You would need to remove the passenger side kick panel to the right of where a passengers right foot would be. If there is a harness plugged in there that looks like what's picture then all you would need is the # 118263. If not you would need the part # 118525 instead.

  • Recommended Hitch Extension For Additional Trailer Clearance Behind Truck
  • Adding any extension to your trailer hitch will reduce the towing capacity by 50 percent. For example, if your trailer hitch has a towing capacity of 3,500-lbs, and then you use an extension, the capacity of the hitch is reduced to 1,750-lbs. If your trailer can be towed with an extension I recommend part # HE18. This extender is designed for a 2-inch receiver opening and extends the hitch by 18-inches. This extension can not be used if you have a weight distribution system installed. For...

  • Will 7-Way Trailer Connector Tester Work With 2011 Chevrolet 2500 HD Factory Brake Controller
  • The TowReady 7 Way Trailer Connector Vehicle Tester you referenced, # TR20117, is not compatible with all factory brake controllers. I don't believe it is compatible with your 2011 Chevrolet 2500 HD. A similar design that is compatible is the Pollak 7-Way to RV Socket LED Circuit Tester, # PK12741. This will work with your vehicle's factory controller and will be bright enough for outside use. You may need to shield direct sunlight from interfering with your reading.

  • Is Buyers Products Pintle Hook # 337PH10 Compatible with B&W # BWPMHD14004
  • The Buyers Products 10 Ton Pintle Hook # 337PH10 referenced in your question is indeed compatible with the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # BWPMHD14004 that you also mentioned. I went out to our warehouse to measure the bolt hole spacing on the pintle hook to verify this. Both items feature a 16,000 pound towing capacity. For mounting hardware, I actually recommend the Buyers Products Mounting Kit # 3378520, as it was specifically designed for this model Pintle Hook. If you want...

  • Adding a 5-Way Flat Trailer Connector to a 2017 Toyota Highlander Limited with Tow Package
  • First I have to tell you that the 2017 Toyota Highlander warranty cannot be voided if you install or have someone install an aftermarket part. Now if that part was to cause a problem on the vehicle then the repairs would not be covered. With that said I would agree that if the vehicle is pre-wired for a trailer connector you would need an option that doesn't come with a converter. In order to get a 5-Way you would first need to install a 4-Way using # 56042. Then you would need the...

  • Recommendation For Converting A 13 Way European Plug To US 4-Way Flat
  • For your European lighting connection on your bike rack, I recommend you use a few adapters for the easiest connection. If you can get a 13 pin to 7 pin European connector (which we don't carry) then you can use the Trailer Connector Adapter for Land Rover - 7-Way, Round Pin, European Style to 4-Way Flat # 118710 and you wouldn't need to do any splicing. If not, then you will need to divide out the functions to convert to your US 4-way flat. The Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter...

  • Trailer Running Lights Not Working on 2012 Nissan Xterra
  • The issue is likely the relay for the running lights. The relay is attached to a wiring harness which is located behind the passenger side kick panel near the passenger door (see picture). You should see a harness with 2 blue relays and a larger brown relay. If both relays are there, then the relay is likely bad and should be replaced with part # 38666-1. If you do not see a harness with relays, then it is likely that the harness wasn't installed. Unfortunately this harness isn't available...
