Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Speaker 1: Today on our 2005 Toyota Tundra, we're gonna be taking a look at, showing you how to install, the Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller, for 1 to 4 Axles, part number 5535. Now, to help us in our installation we're also gonna be using the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers for Toyotas and Lexuses, part number 3040-P.So here's what our break controller looks like when it's fully installed. Now, our break controller is proportional, which means it's gonna apply our trailer breaks in the same intensity that our vehicle is slowing down. It's gonna do that because there's an inertia sensor inside, so when our vehicle starts to slow down, that sensor is gonna realize how much we're slowing down, apply our trailer breaks accordingly. Now, it's also gonna feature a manual override, in case you ever need to have a time where you need to apply the trailer brakes without applying the brakes on your truck. You can grab this lever, and if we start rotating it to the side, it will apply the maximum amount of breaks if we have it all the way over.Now, our gain setting is gonna be these gray buttons right here, and it's gonna max out at 10, and will go all the way down to zero.



RetraxPRO MX Hard Tonneau Cover Installation - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today on our 2005 Toyota Tundra, we're going to be taking a look at Retract Pro retractable MX hard tonneau cover, Part Number RT80822. This tonneau cover is really good if you're looking to keep things in the bed of your truck secure. Things like luggage or sporting goods, but also maybe you've got a fifth wheel hitch that you'd like to keep secure in the bed and you don't want it to be visible by everyone. This is going to do a really good job of covering those things up and keeping them safe. It's also very good because it's easy to operate and it doesn't take a lot of effort. You can use just one hand and lock it into whatever position you need to have it locked in. As you can see, it keeps a very nice flush clean look.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today, on our 2005 Toyota Tundra, we're doing a test fit of the Curt 20 x 60 cargo carrier. That part number is C18150. Now this is designed to work with 2" hitches and has a weight capacity of 500 pounds. We're going to start off with a few measurements. Ground clearance being first. We're going to have about 20" there. Now that is because we have a raised shank in back, which is doing to lift our carrier even higher than our hitch.



Stromberg Carlson Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today on our 2005 Toyota Tundra, we're doing a test fit of the Stromberg Carlson 23" x 60" Cargo Carrier. That part number is CC-100. This is designed to work with 2-inch hitches and has a weight of capacity of 500 pounds. Although it does have a pretty high-weight capacity, it is pretty lightweight, so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. The first thing we're going to start off with are a few measurements. Ground clearance being first, we're going to have about 15 1/2 inches to the bottom of that bolt there.



MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today on our 2005 Toyota Tundra we're doing a test fit of the Max Tow 48 by 21 Cargo Carrier. That part number is MT70422. This is designed to work with 2 inch hitches and has a weight capacity of 500 pounds. Although it does have a pretty high weight capacity it is very light weight. It is made out of aluminum, so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. We're going to take a few measurements here. We're going to start off with our ground clearance.



Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today on our 2005 Toyota Tundra, we're doing a test fit of the Darby extended truck hitch mounted load extender. That part number is DTA944. Now we already have this in our first position. We're going to go over a few features in this position and then we'll show you our second. Here in the T position we have it lined up with the roof of our vehicle. This is great is if you have anything that is loaded up on your roof or on your roof rack, if you have one of those. We'll have these 2 tie down points on either side to allow you to secure any of your gear with a strap.



Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Toyota Tundra

Today we are going to install part number 65031 from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this on a 2005 Toyota Tundra pickup. To begin our install, let us take a few pieces off the vehicle. First off, this tow hook right here has to come off it will stay off. This skid plate right here, that will have to come off and stay off. And then this hook over here, this loop or tie-down has to come off, also. This bolt here and here and there are two back here that come out and allow the shield to come down. Next we will install the hitch on existing weld nuts. It is a good idea to have an extra set of hands because it is kind of heavy and kind of wide. Once we have the hitch installed by the factory bolts I am sorry, with the factory holes then we use the hitch as a template to drill out the last two remaining holes. All right, what we will do from here on out is, we will go ahead and snug the bolts down, lock the hitch into position, and we will start our drilling. The hitch will mark where our holes are going to be drilled at. Again, we will use it for a template. We will start off with a 1/4-inch drill bit to make a pilot hole, and then we will follow it up with a 1/2-inch bit. And this is the other one right here.





2005 Toyota Tundra Questions and Answers


  • Can I Replace 155/80R13 Tires with 175/80 R13 Tires on a Boat Trailer
  • I did some calculations on the tire sizes and found that the difference between the 175/80R13 and the 155/80R13 is pretty small. The 175/80 is 24 inches inches tall whereas the 155/80 is 22.7 inches tall for a difference of 1.3 inches total, but that difference needs to be split since the overall diameter is split since the wheel rotates on the axle. So basically the wheel will take up an additional .65 inches of your fender well. The width difference is pretty small at .78 inches....

  • Installing a Brake Controller on 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • The factory installed brake controller connector should be a white plug located on the left side under the drivers side dash on your 2005 Toyota Tundra Dual Cab. I have included a photo and a video that shows the location of the plug on another Toyota Tundra at the 8 second mark. This plug may not be there if your vehicle did not come with the factory tow package. The Multi-Plug, # 20137, is designed as a replacement if your vehicle came with a factory tow package that included the...

  • Benefits of Changing to Larger Diameter Radial Trailer Tires on Travel Trailer
  • Changing to a larger diameter radial tire from a smaller bias ply type can offer several advantages. In general radial trailer tires run cooler than bias ply tires, especially when the tire is under a load. A tire that runs cooler will last longer. A bias ply tire has a stiffer sidewall than a radial, a feature that might be useful for off-road applications, but for highway operation a radial tire will flex more, and provide better ground contact, traction, stability, and tread wear. You...

  • Surge Brake and Electric Brake Controller Compatibility
  • You will not have any compatibility issues between the brake controller and the surge actuator. The reason is because the brake controller will not be used in any way with the surge actuator. The brake output circuit will basically dead-end and not go anywhere on your trailer so you would not have to worry about it in any way. The trailer basically will do all the braking by itself between the surge actuator and the disc brakes. You would not need to remove any fuses either to prevent...

  • Can a Folding Shank be Added to Any Brand Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • The replacement shanks for folding cargo carriers that we carry, such as # 52015, are designed just as replacements for specific cargo carrier models. They have not been tested on alternate models so the only way to know if any would work would be to test it. If you know the manufacturer and model of your carrier I can determine if we have a folding replacement shank for it.

  • Brake Controller and Wiring for a 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • Your install procedure will depend on how your Tundra is equipped. If you have the factory tow package with the 7-way trailer connector at the rear bumper, you can simply use a controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885 and the brake controller wiring adapter, part # 3040-P. The adapter plug in to the rear of the controller, and the other end would plug into the connector under the dash. The connector is usually located near the emergency brake pedal. If you do not have...

  • Curt TriFlex Brake Controller Shows d.C. and Other Error Messages on 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • The first thing you will want to try is to unplug your TriFlex brake controller # C51140 for about 15 seconds or more. Then, before plugging it back in go back through the instructions as if you were installing the controller for the first time. Once all electrical connections are complete and the single decimal point is seen, while parked on a level surface, plug the trailers electrical connector into the tow vehicle’s plug. Making the trailer connection initiates the mounting position...

  • Availability of Tailgate Assist Device for 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • Although the DeeZee Truck Tailgate Lift you referenced, part # DZ43300 is not a fit for your Tundra, there is a tailgate assist product from Hopkins available, the EasyLift part # 74211. The EasyLift is a torsion spring that acts to remove about 80 percent of the tailgate weight, making it much easier to lift. It works the opposite from the way the DeeZee product does, by helping raise the gate rather than helping to lower it, but it works exceptionally well. To see a product demonstration...

  • Brake Controller Plug Location on a 2005 Toyota Tundra with Factory Tow Package
  • On your 2005 Toyota Tundra the factory plug to plug in a brake controller is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. However, it is possible that it is up above the emergency brake pedal or behind the kick panel to the left of the pedal. I have linked a video that should help. You have many brake controller options but the P2 # 90885 is the most popular controller because it is easy to set up and use and...

  • Recommended Scissor Jacks for Dutchman 10,000 Pound RV
  • A set of scissor jacks, one placed on each side of your trailer, will do a great job of reducing side to side movement and roll when the trailer is parked. You will just want to make sure the wheels are blocked so when the jacks are down the trailer will not be able to roll at all. For your 31 foot Dutchman RV that weighs 10,000 pounds, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Ultra Scissor Jacks # UF48-979002. These have a combined support capacity of 13,000 pounds and will provide 24 inches of lift....

  • Brake Controller Plug Location for a 2005 Toyota Tundra SR5
  • The factory connector on your 2005 Toyota Tundra should be located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. But sometimes it is behind the kick panel to the left of the emergency brake pedal. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you with the harness located in the traditional place, not behind the kick panel. If your truck did not come with a factory 7-Way trailer connector then the connector...

  • Do Towing Mirrors CTM4000 Angle out Far Enough to Be Effective on a 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • The angle of the passenger side mirror, once installed, would basically be the same angle as your OEM mirror, as they will be side by side. The towing mirrors will give you about 4 additional inches of viewing surface, but it would really depend on your application whether or not you would be able to see all the way back to the end of the trailer. You might have a friend hold a small mirror beside your OEM mirrors while you sit in the cab to get an idea of what kind of viewing angle...

  • Universal Towing Mirror for Use on 2005 Toyota Tacoma
  • For your 2005 Toyota Tundra we do offer a custom-fit towing mirror that will work with manual, electric or electric/heated OEM mirrors, the Longview # CTM4000. If your Tundra mirrors look like those shown in the linked photo then you will have a perfect fit. We do not have custom-fit mirrors for the Tacoma.

  • Truck Stake Bed Anchor Recommendation on 2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab
  • I spoke with my contact at Erickson regarding the Erickson Heavy-Duty Anchor # EM4001 for your 2005 Toyota Tundra Double Cab, and she said the product you referenced will not work on your vehicle based on your description of the stake pockets. An alternative to the Erickson Anchor # EM4001 would be the Putco Push-Up Tie-Downs # P99901. The width of the part that goes into the stake pocket measures 1-3/8 inches while the length that will extend into the hold is 3-1/2 inches. You will...

  • Are the Putco H4 Halogen Headlight Bulbs # P230004NB Dual Intensity
  • The Putco PURE High-Performance H4 Halogen Headlight Bulbs # P230004NB that you referenced are dual intensity bulbs meaning there is a high and low beam function for the bulb. The low beam is 55 watts at 12 volts and the high beam is 60 watts at 12 volts. Although some people use these bulbs on the street without problems, these bulbs do not meet DOT specs and would technically be illegal because of that. For a street legal light option you could get Putco PURE High-Performance...

  • Recommended Battery Disconnect Switch for Deep Cell Battery on Horse Trailer for Accessories
  • Yes, the Epicord Battery Disconnect # 277-000096 would be a great switch choice for you to install on the horse trailer to ensure that all the power is on and off to your accessories with one switch to the deep cell battery. I have linked it to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.

  • Can TorkLift GlowStep Scissor Steps be Installed on a Travel Trailer
  • Yes, you could use the TorkLift steps # TLA7502 on a travel trailer. You can use them on anything that will accept the mounting bracket. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right so you can better asses the use of the steps on your particular travel trailer. Basically there is a long u-shaped bracket that attaches at the bottom of a door. There needs to be a structural component at the mounting location; a metal or wood frame that can support weight.

  • Bearing Buddy Recommendation for a Springdale 179RD with 363180 Al-Ko Bearings
  • From the research I did it looks like the outer bearing of the Al-Ko bearing number 363180 that you referenced is basically a L-44649, which is what the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS that you referenced are designed to work on.

  • What Parts are Needed to Convert a Toyota Tundra with a 4-Way Connector to a 5-Way Connector
  • If the 4-Way flat came on the truck from the Toyota factory, there would be no need to buy an Upgraded HD Modulite harness like part # 119190. The truck would have all the necessary electrical components in place. You would just need a 4-Way to 5-Way adapter like part # 20036. The blue wire is then connected to the reverse light wire on the truck if the trailer uses the blue wire for reverse lights. Occasionally the blue wire can be used for trailer brakes on a trailer. You could then...

  • Availability of Tire Chains that Fit 265/70 R17 and LT235/85 R16 Tires
  • For both sets of tires on your 2005 Toyota Tundra you can use Glacier Tire Chains part # PWH2221SC. These low-carbon steel twist-link chains tighten manually with included cams. We also recommend use of a rubber chain tension adjuster, part # PW99. I have also included a link to an article that explains the various types of tire chains available and their specific applications that might be helpful in your decision-making process.

  • Installing the TracRac T-Rac Pro2 Ladder Rack on a 2005 Toyota Tacoma
  • Beginning in 2005, Toyota offered a deck rail system for the Toyota Tacoma. The deck rail system mounted directly below the top of the truck bed walls. Because of the location of the deck rail system on the Tacoma, the deck rails interfered with the installation of the TracRac T-Rac so TracRac made special clamps. The deck rail system was not offered on the Toyota Tundra until 2007, so this should not be an issue on your 2005 Toyota Tundra. You can simply disregard the section in the...

  • The Dexter 7 inch electric brake assembly uses a magnet retaining clip that's different from the # BP19005 you described, which is only compatible with magnets for a 10, 12 and 12-1/4 inch brake assembly. The magnet retaining clips are indeed necessary for holding the magnet in proper position. Unfortunately, the magnet retaining clips for the round magnet are not offered as a separate unit, but only as part of the # BP01-068 replacement magnet kit. I was surprised they weren't available...

If your 7-way is not factory installed there will not be a plug under the dash for use with quick-connect adapter # 3040-P. Sometimes this connector is taped up to other wiring, or tucked away out of sight. In any case you can still install the Prodigy using our...

For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes Locking up when Trailer Connector is Connected to 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • It sounds like you have the trailer connector on your 2005 Toyota Tundra or trailer wired incorrectly, or there is a short from the 12 volt accessory circuit to your brake output circuit and that is causing your trailer brakes to lock up. The first thing I would do is check the back of the connectors on your vehicle and your trailer and see if there is any obvious things that could cause the short. Next, I would check that the 7-way on your trailer is wired correctly. Check out the picture...
