How to Install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Kia Sedona


Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Kia Sedona, you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install a Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame trailer hitch receiver, part number seven five eight nine four. Going to be two inch by two inch, hitch pin hole, it's going to be this larger back hole here or most forward hole, it's going to be five eights inch in diameter. It's going to take a standard five eighths inch hitch pin. Now the pin does not come with your kit, however, you can find one on our website using part number PC3.This smaller hole here, this is going to be for a J pin stabilization device. What that does, is that's going to take any shake and play or rattle out of your hitch mode accessories. Here we're going to have plate style safety chain lugs, you can see we're going to very large holes.

That's going to fit many different size safety chain hooks. Another nice feature about this hitch, is we're going to have our pre-welded plate for any of your wiring accessories you may want to add later on.As far as weight capacities go, you're going to have a 400 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. A 4000 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus anything loaded on it. I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Sedona to make sure that the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're going to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now this hitch is rated for weight distribution, and your numbers are going to stay the same.

400 pound tongue weight and 4000 pounds trailer weight. Now let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need. From the center of the hitch pin hole to outermost part of the bumper will be about four and a half inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 11 and a half inches. Now it's a good idea to get a raised shank for better ground clearance.

Now let's show you how to get this installed.First thing we need to do to start our installation, here on our driver's side rim and appearance panel, behind our rear tire. We're going to have six push pin fasteners we need to remove. It needs a flat head screwdriver or trim panel tool, whichever you have. Pop out the center, just want to make sure you bring the base with it. Once you have those removed, we'll set the panel on the side.

Next thing we're going to need to do is lower our exhaust. It's a good idea to use a safety strap. I like to hook them to the springs.And we're going to come underneath your pipe. Now the lower exhaust, you're going to have two hangers. You're going to have one here on our passenger side and you're going to have one towards the center of the vehicle. You want to spray the rod down with a little bit of lubricant. If you don't have any, soapy water works just fine. That, and our center one here, we're going to do the same thing. Now the holes we're going to be using are the three threaded holes. So when this side is open to the elements, driver's side had the panel over it.What I'm going to do is take some penetrating oil. I'm just going to spray the threads. Then I'm going to take a wire brush. No, these do not come in your kit, but you can find them on our website. And we're just going to kind of . We want to make sure we clean those threads. Clean the threads off. We don't want our bolts to cross-thread inside. Once you get them clean, take your bolt, see if you can't hand thread that in. You want to make sure that you're not going to cross-thread your bolt or the inaudible 00:03:27.Next you want to take your hex bolt that comes in your kit, you're going to get six of them, three for each side. Conical tooth washer, you want to make sure that the teeth are facing towards the hitch. Let's take our hitch, we're going to go over our exhaust on our passenger side first, that will kind of help hold it in place. Go ahead and get one of our bolts in on each side to hold our hitch up.Take a 19 millimeter socket, tighten all your hardware. Then you're going to torque all your hardware to the specifications in the instructions. Once you have all your hardware tightened and torqued to the specification in the instructions, reinstall your exhaust. Once you've reinstalled your exhaust, go ahead and remove your safety strap, you're ready to go. The side panel that we took off over here on the driver's side, we will not be reinstalling that.That'll do it for a look at, and installation on the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame trailer hitch receiver, part number seven five eight nine four on our 2017 Kia Sedona.
