Yakima FreshTrack Ski and Snowboard Carrier Review - 2022 Chevrolet Malibu

How's it going everyone It's Ethan here at etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Yakima Fresh Track Ski and Snowboard Carrier on our 2022 Chevrolet Malibu. If you got a roof rack system like we have on top of our Malibu here, you wanna transport some ski and snowboards around or even in the summer months with these particular ski and snowboard carriers, some fishing rods, the Yakima Fresh Tracks are a good way to do that. You can get the Fresh Track in a four or six version. This is the four right here, which means it can carry up to four skis or two snowboards. So the fresh track has a big button here on the side that you can use even if you have your big winter mittens on and just push that up and it pops right open, so we can go ahead and toss our skis on. more

SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack Installation - 2022 Chevrolet Malibu

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today we'll be taking a look at how the SeaSucker Monkey Bars roof rack fits on the 2022 Chevrolet Malibu. So if you wanna carry around some fun accessories like kayaks, or maybe skis and snowboards on your roof, or you don't have a hitch but you wanna carry around a bike rack, so you wanna put it up top, then what you need is a roof rack system. Now there are custom fit kits for your Chevrolet Malibu, but they are a little bit more involved when it comes to the install. Definitely worth it, because they give you a solid sturdy surface, but if you want a quick, easy, temporary solution then the SeaSucker monkey bars might be the option for you.

How's it going This is Ethan with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Inno Gravity Ski and Snowboard Carrier on our 2022 Chevrolet Malibu.

Titan Chain Tire Chains Installation - 2022 Chevrolet Malibu

How's it going everyone It's Ethan here at etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at our Titan Chain Cable Chains on our 2022 Chevrolet Malibu. These chains are gonna be a roller style of chains which the dealer typically recommends, because they give you the most clearance in the back in the wheel well area. So, as far as that goes, it's what they recommend. But as far as longevity goes and using them over the course of a few seasons, it may not be the best choice. The reason why these chains might not last as many seasons is because it's made of a low carbon steel which isn't nearly as rust or corrosion resistant. more

Pewag Snox Pro Snow Tire Chains Review - 2022 Chevrolet Malibu

How's it going It's Ethan at etrailer here, and today, we have our pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Tire Chains on our 2022 Chevrolet Malibu. These tire chains are a solid entry level choice, they are diamond pattern, which gives you more coverage on the road, and they're a decent choice for inclement weather, including ice and snow. With the diamond pattern, you get more coverage of the tire, so you get a little bit more traction, and you also get less bumpiness compared to a ladder style chain. The links of the chains themselves are square, which is good on the flat side for biting into ice, and the way that they interlink with one another is also good for preventing snow clumping. The chains themselves are made of a manganese nickel alloy, which is gonna protect your chains for multiple seasons from rust and corrosion. The interlinks also have a protective coating that's just gonna protect your fingers when you're putting it on in the ice and cold conditions, so your hands don't get stuck to the actual chains themselves. more

And this one is going to be an inch and a quarter.

Now when you are putting your accessories in place, they're gonna be held in by a half inch pin and clip, and it does not come with the hitch.

That means that if there's any shorts or problems on the trailer, this module protects the vehicle from any shorts or damages. To give you an idea how it all works, our module is actually powered by your battery and from these input wires here, from the car, what happens is that the box will actually copy the signal and then send, using battery power, send it out to your trailer. So that way, again, if there's any problems with the trailer, it's limited to here and that's where it stops.Couple of neat things inside the box that protect the vehicle is it has a resettable breaker on the inside that's totally automatic, so you just let it sit for awhile and reset. more

Speaker 1: Today in this 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Fusemaster fuse bypass switch for towed vehicles, part number RM765121.Now, the reason you're going to want a fuse bypass for your Malibu is because when you're flat towing a Malibu behind your motor home, it does require the pooling of two fuses in your fuse box so your vehicle's battery doesn't become depleted. Because the transmission has to be in a neutral position, it can actually run down the battery while the fuse is being pooled.This will prevent you from having to open this cover every single time, remove the fuses, and when you get back to your destination, reinstalling the fuses in order for you to drive the vehicle. With the simple flip the switch down to the tow mode, it's like the fuses we're just renewed because it disconnects the switch. By flipping it up to drive, it's like you reinstalled the fuses because they are now supplying power to the fuse box, and all your accessories will work properly.To begin our install, we're going to locate our fuse box inside the passenger compartment of our vehicle. It's on the driver's side right here underneath our headlights switch.We'll remove our cover by using a flathead screwdriver to get inside this section here and popping it loose, and then our fuse box is behind it.Now, we need to remove our two fuses that need to be removed when the vehicle is in tow mode. We have number 10, which is this one right there, the 15 amp fuse. more

Speaker 1: Today on this 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster tail light wiring kit for towed vehicles with an LED bulb and socket, part number RM-152-LED.Now, the reason you're gonna want bulb and socket wiring for your Malibu is if you're flat towing it, this is your only option as far as lights that are internal. You can't use diodes on the Malibu because it's a variable voltage system that powers incandescent light bulbs. If you wanted not to have that, your other option is magnetic tow lights.Magnetic tow lights, they're kind of a hassle because they actually can scratch the surface of your paint, and you have to find a place to store them when you're not using them. Bulb and sockets, especially these being LED, you don't have to worry about replacing the bulb. They should last the lifetime of the vehicle for you. So it's one less thing you have to worry about.It's a separate bulb from what your vehicle uses from the factory. more

Konig Self-Tensioning Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Malibu we're gonna be test-fitting the Konic self-tensioning low-profile snow tire chains, part number TH00023103. When taking a look at these chains, the main use you're gonna get out of these is for those snow and ice situations, and a lot of that is because of the D-links and the diamond pattern with our tire chains here. If you wanted chains for white snow, you might wanna take a look at our other brands that have the rollers on them. One of the big bonuses about this tire chain system, it does have a self-tensioning system here, meaning as you drive it's going to self-tension and center around the tire so you don't have to worry about that, stopping and checking and make sure everything's working properly. Also it means you don't have to buy any aftermarket tensioners, as you would with other tire chains as well.These chains are designed to work with vehicles with limited wheel well clearance, and they are compatible with antilock brake systems. They do come with plastic bumpers, which we haven't installed for demonstration purposes, that snap to the chains around the tire to help protect the rim. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Malibu we're gonna be test-fitting the Titan chain diagonal alloy snow tire cable chains, part number TC339DC.

If you're living in an area that has mostly light snows, this is gonna be perfect for you because the diagonal shape and the rollers provide a smooth ride and also assist with effective starts and stops in light snows as well. If you're looking for something more with a heavy snow or heavy snow and ice, you may wanna look at the Titan chains D-link designs or their V-bar link designs as well. Another thing that sets this apart from most of the other tire chains that we have is it actually comes with the rubber tensioners to attach this to your vehicle, while others you would have to purchase separately. These chains are designed to work with wheel wells with limited clearance, so these are SAE-class S chains, and they are compatible with all Department of Transportation regulations in all states. more

You can carry anything from bike racks to cargo baskets to ski and snowboard carriers. The bars themselves have an aerodynamic shape to them and that, coupled with the rubber strip up at the top, is gonna cut down the wind noise and drag while you're driving, reducing the need for a fairing that you may need for square or round bars.While this roof rack system does boast more of a natural factory look to it that you would get with some vehicles, it does have a disadvantage. It does cut down the amount of space that you can install your accessories with this end cap here. more

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the best roof rack options available for our 2017 Chevy Malibu. We'll have a Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack system and our Yakima Jetstream Roof Rack system.We'll first start off by pointing out some of the differences between the two bars and the most obvious is going to be the length, with the Yakima Jetstream going significantly past where the Rhino Rack is. And this enables you to carry more accessories, especially in your t-track area. Now with the Rhino Rack, you can get longer bars, but you're going to have to purchase those separately.Next we'll talk about the end caps. With the Rhino Rack it does require a special tool to unlock them and remove them and you can replace this with a lock core which is sold separately. With the Yakima, it doesn't have any locks, but it simply slides off by popping off the end.You can utilize t-track accessories with both roof racks as we just mentioned, however it is a little different how they install. more
