2009 Ford Questions and Answers


  • Using Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Leveling Kit # LC358590 on Montana High Country 305 RL
  • Lippert Components' bolt-on 4-jack automatic leveling kit # LC358590 is an advanced general-application system for use on most 5th wheels, including your Keystone Montana High Country 305 RL. Chances are 90-95-percent that the frame of your 5th wheel was made by Lippert, so the compatibility of this system with your trailer is virtually a sure thing. I do not have any confirmed data for how many of these system have been installed on trailers in the Montana series. This system offers...

  • How to Decide Which Tandem Axle Trailer Hanger Kit to Use
  • Typically when building a tandem axle trailer I recommend using either the # APT3 or # APT5 Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit. These are the most common kits used for utility trailers and parts are readily available. The # APT5 kit is by far the most common because all the hangers are the same height and provide good tire clearance. There are a lot of variables when selecting a hanger kit. First you should select a kit that will accommodate the wheel and tire combination you are using....

  • Trailer Tow Package Fuse and Relay Locations on a 2009 Ford F-150 Platinum 4x4
  • I looked up the 2009 Ford F-150 owner's manual and found the fuse and relay locations related to trailer lights. There is only one in the in-cab fuse panel in location 33 for a brake controller. The rest are under the hood in the power distribution box. Under the hood location 6 is the trailer parking lamp relay Location 9 is the trailer battery charge relay Location 17 is another brake controller fuse Location 21 is the fuse for the trailer battery charge circuit Location 31...

  • Back Up Camera Options for Backing Boat Trailer
  • Wireless back up cameras are not designed to withstand the the elements when installed on the license plate frame of a passenger vehicle, but they're not capable of being submerged. Repeated immersion in water will eventually damage the camera. The Master Lock Wireless Backup Camera System, part # 4843DAT would probably be the best option for you. The camera has a magnetic mounting surface that could be attached someplace on the trailer that will not be submerged. The camera is meant...

  • Engine Will Not Start with Brake Controller and # 3034-P Wiring Adapter Installed on 2009 Ford F-150
  • It looks like you have an incorrect wiring harness connecting the P2 brake controller, # 90885, to the factory brake controller port on your 2009 Ford F-150. The # 3034-P brake controller wiring harness is designed for the Ford E series vans and the Super Duty trucks, not the F-150 trucks. The correct harness for your truck is the Brake Control Wiring Adapter for Ford F-150, # 22292. This harness has the same connector but a different wiring configuration. I produced a short video, see...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2009 Ford F-250
  • If you are looking for a replacement 7-way trailer connector for your 2009 Ford F-250, you can use either the Tow Ready Replacement Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4-Way Connector, # 74682, or the Pollack Replacement 7-way Socket, # PK11893. Keep in mind, these will only work if your truck came with a factory 7-way connector and you are simply looking for a replacement connector. If your truck only has a 4-way flat connector and you are looking to upgrade to a 7-way way connector, then I recommend...

  • How To Install A Brake Controller on a 2009 Ford F-150
  • Installing a brake controller system on a 2009 Ford F-150 is very simple thanks to the brake controller port they provide. The port is in a funny location but you simply plug in the brake controller and you are done. The most popular brake controller we carry is the Tekonsha Prodigy. For a Prodigy for your truck, you would use part # 90185 and adapter # 22292 and it will include a wiring harness that will allow you to simply plug the controller into the truck. No cutting, splicing or...

  • Setting Up a 2009 Ford E-350 Van without Factory Towing Package for Brake Controller Wiring
  • There are 3 options from the manufacturer for the 2009 E-350 Ford Van. Factory 7-Way trailer wiring, factory 4-Way trailer wiring, and no existing trailer wiring. I will go over all three since you did not indicate which one your vehicle has. If you have the factory 7-Way trailer wiring, you will be able to use the 3034-P wiring harness that you selected to easily install your prodigy brake controller. When looking for a port under the dash, it will be near the top of the instrument...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Option for Cab and Chassis Ford F-450
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and sent him everything you sent me including the pictures and here is what he responded with: Typically we recommend our universal over-bed installation kit, part # C61502, compatible for the over-bed folding & fixed ball gooseneck hitches, parts # C61502 & # C61100 for the cab and chassis trucks. That said this installation kit would also need to be modified to fit the 34” OD cab & chassis frame. We recommend that a certified structural welder perform...

  • Can a 225/75-15 Tire Be Mounted on a 5 Inch Wide Rim
  • A 225/75-15 tire is recommended for a rim with a minimum width of 6 inches. A 5 inch rim would have the tire pinched to the point where I doubt it would even mount to the rim. If it could be mounted on that rim, it would be unsafe Since we don't carry any 15 inch rims with the 5 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern that are wider than 5 inches, I'd recommend going with a slightly narrower tire, a 205/57-15 tire which IS compatible with a 5 inch wide rim that has a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. I'd...

  • Replacement Circuit Breakers for 12,000 Pound Electric Winch
  • For an electric winch with a 12,000 pound capacity, you will want to use the Superwinch Replacement Circuit Breaker Assembly # SW90-22147. I spoke with my contact at Superwinch and he confirmed that this is the correct circuit breaker assembly for a 12,000 pound winch. These breakers are designed to work with winches that have capacities higher than 9,000 pounds. The breaker assembly offers 230-amps of circuit breakers to protect your vehicle from a short with the winch. I've attached...

  • Thank you for your purchase of replacement springs # 30776 and jaws # 58056 for your Reese 5th wheel hitch # RP30047. My contact at Reese could not confirm which components you are referring to on your Reese hitch. He indicated there is no bushing in the jaw. You can submit photos of the part you're speaking of, if you like. For your Reese 16K 5th wheel hitch # RP30047 you can use replacement Jaw Actuating Lever # 30417 which fits all Reese hitches.

  • Adding an Electric Motor to Bulldog Square Jack # BD182701
  • The motor that fits Bulldog jack # BD182701 is powered drive kit # BD1824200100. The shaft on the jack is 1 inch in diameter and the pin hole for the crank is approximately 5/16 of an inch. The motor mounts to the side of the jack as you can see in the picture I included. Adding the motor limits the jack capacity to 12,000 pounds. I have linked a video review of the powered drive kit for you.

For 9/16 inch studs, the typical lug nut torque will be 120-140 ft lbs based on most of our manufacturers. I've attached a photo of typical torque values to assist.

  • Installing Brake Controller 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • The Explorer Sport Trac models were not pre wired for a brake controller from the factory. Does the vehicle already have a 4-pole trailer connector?

  • Safety Cables for a Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar
  • The Falcon tow bar, # RM-522, has a channel to run the safety cables through so you will want to use straight safety cables like the 64 inch Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables, # RM-645. Safety cables are not included and must be purchased separately. We also have a towing combo kit, # RM-9243-2, that includes the safety cables and accessories needed for the RM-522 Falcon tow bar.

  • Headlight Bulb Recommendation for a 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty
  • We do have halogen headlight bulbs that will fit your 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty. Your vehicle will need H13 bulbs like the Putco PURE High-Performance H13 Halogen Bulbs, # P230012NW.

  • What is Best Location to Mount CIPA Hot Spot Square Convex Mirror # 49404
  • The CIPA Hot Spot Square Convex Mirror, part # 49404, can be affixed to any part of your F-150 main mirror that does not interfere with your primary viewing. Usually they are placed in the lower/outside part of the mirror. The exact best position for your truck will be most easily found by sitting in the driver seat with your trailer hitched. In this way you will be able to place it where it least interferes with your main mirror view but still provides the best wide-angle views of your...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2009 Ford Escape
  • Since you do not have the OE trailer hitch, the connector you found behind the bumper is not active. In some cases, the wiring can be activated by adding 3 of the # TR38665 relays to the fuse box under the hood, but you need to carefully examine the sockets that the relays would insert into. If the sockets do NOT have metal connection points or contacts in them, then the tow wiring circuits are incomplete and adding the relays will not activate the tow package wiring, in which case you...

  • Troubleshooting 2009 Ford Escape Trailer Wire Harness # 118551 Passenger Side Lights Not Working
  • I am sorry that you are having trouble with your trailer wiring harness. The next step you should take is to test the wiring at the trailer connector with no trailer attached. Use a circuit tester, item # ALL640595 if needed, and determine if all of the functions are present at the 4-Way connector. If all functions are working properly, then the trouble is on the trailer that you used to test the harness. If you find that the wiring to the connector is not functioning properly, then...

  • Chucking Experienced With 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter
  • The attachment point between the fifth wheel king pin and the Ranch Hitch adapter is very tight. Threaded collars attach to the king pin, then the black adapter base threads onto the collars. The upper flange on the black adapter will actually bolt to the underside of the fifth wheel pin box. There will be no movement there. Any movement or chucking will be experienced at the point where the adapter attaches to the gooseneck ball. The chucking would be about what you would experience...

  • How is the Height Adjustment Measured on the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • When measuring the height of a 5th wheel hitch it would be from the top of the truck bed corrugations to the top of the head. The Q20, # C16130, is height adjustable from 13 to 17 inches. Since the X5, # 16310, sets in a gooseneck ball hole but the rails would be no higher than regular rails, it does not add height. To get the proper height setting you would need to know the distance from the top of the bed side rails to the bottom of the trailer overhang. You need 5 or 6 inches of space...

  • Dimensions of Bed Rail Mounting Bolts Included with Reese # RP50081-58 5th Wheel Hitch Install Kit
  • It sounds like you're wanting to move the bed rails from one truck to another. If that's the case, you will indeed want to use new bolts as the bolts originally included with the # RP50081-58 kit are intended for a one time use only. The recommended rail bolt kit is part # RP58430, which uses 1/2-13 x 2 inch grade 5 carriage bolts. To attach the frame brackets to the truck frame, the # RP50081F hardware kit is recommended. I've linked you to an install video showing the kit being used...

  • Will Contents of Hitch Cargo Carrier Melt from Exhaust
  • Exhaust melting cargo on a cargo carrier isn't a super common problem, but we are aware that it does happen on occasion. Especially if the cargo carrier is at the same height as the exhaust, relatively close to it, and/or the material in the carrier is susceptible to melting. We typically recommend at least 12 inches between the exhaust tip and the carrier to prevent melting. Other factors to consider are the size of the engine, climate, and road conditions. Engines are basically big...

  • Does the Exhaust Need to be Lowered to Install a Curt Hitch on a 2009 Ford Flex
  • To install the Curt Hitch # C13110 on your 2009 Ford Flex you will not need to temporarily lower your exhaust. Check out the installation instructions I attached for this hitch to see how it installs. For trailer wiring you would want a Tow Ready Wiring Harness # 118472. This harness installs in line with the tail light harness of your vehicle and does not require any splicing. Check out the installation instructions and installation video I attached for this product also.

  • Which Replacement Spring Bars Will Fit the Reese Weight Distribution and Dual-Cam Sway Control
  • If the head unit on your Reese weight distribution system is for round bars, then the trunnion style bars, # RP66009, will not fit. Instead, if you have round bars, I would go with Reese Round Bar Replacement Spring Bar, # RP58115. This bar is rated for 1,000 pounds. If you do have a Reese WD system that uses trunnion style bars, then the Reese Replacement Trunnion Spring Bar, # RP66009, will work. But to make absolutely sure, I will need the make and model of the weight distribution...
