Is a Fuse Necessary When Wiring a 7-way If 12V Wire Already Is Fused If the truck has a 12V power wire dedicated to the trailer wiring that is already fused, you do not need to add an additional fuse. For example, on newer GM trucks, the 12V power wire from the factory tow package is ran to a 40 amp fuse in the fuse box. In this instance, it is not necessary to add an additional fuse. If you have to run a new 12V power wire, then we recommend adding a 40 amp circuit breaker, like # 9510, before the battery. If you would like to let me know the year,.

Do Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies Make Noise When Activated When trailer drum brakes are activated you should be able to hear a humming sound. I am not quite sure I would describe it as musical, but it sounds like they are functioning on your trailer. Have you tried testing the brakes to see if they function properly? Most likely they will work fine. You should also note that these are self-adjusting brake assemblies so at first they may not seem to powerful, but with every brake application they should get slightly stronger until they are fully.

Does a Reese SC Weight Distribution System Get Greased and are the Bars Supposed to Bend You are correct, you would not grease the area where the bars make contact with the friction pads on Reese SC system # RP66153. Grease on the ball and where the trunnion ends install on the head would be fine. The bars flexing is normal. A noticeable flex means there is a lot of tension on the bars. This could be due to the placement of the brackets on the trailer frame (you would notice more flex the further the brackets are away from the front of the trailer) and the tilt angle of.

2007.5 GMC 3500 Integrated Brake Controller Not Working There are a couple of things you can do to try and troubleshoot your GMC 3500. First I recommend making sure that the emulator you are using is compatible with GM trucks. The emulator that you mentioned # TR20117 works only with Ford OEM brake controllers and Tekonsha and Draw-Tite aftermarket controllers. Some times, the LED lights on the emulators don't have enough draw to fully trigger the brake controller. A circuit tester with an incandescent bulb, like # 40376, will have enough.

Could the E-Track Wheel Straps Be Used on Tracks That are too Narrow/Wide for Vehicle Wheels Ideally the Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down Strap # EM58523 would be used on vehicles that the wheels line up centered on the E-tracks. However, there should still be a way to attach to wheels that are a little too narrow or wide. If they are too narrow for the tracks you could take and route the straps through the spokes of the rims, or if the tracks are too narrow for the wheels you could route the strap around the wheel, through one spoke, and then out through another spoke of the.

Can a 12 Volt Circuit on a Trailer 7-Way Charge a Trailer Battery The 12 volt power circuit of your 7-way would not be able to charge a dead trailer battery, but it can put a light maintenance charge on it so that it stays topped off while you are travelling. The circuit is most likely protected by a 40 amp fuse, but that does not mean that it can provide 40 amps of charging power to your battery. That just means that if something tried to draw more than 40 amps the fuse would pop. For a charger that you could use to charge your battery when it is.

Trailer Hitch for 2016 Ford Escape that Allows Hands-Free Liftgate Operation The Curt Class III hitch # C13186 as well as all others that fit your 2016 Ford Escape will block the central lift gate sensors, leaving active only the sensors to either side of vehicle near the exhaust pipes. No hitch for your Escape avoids this and we do not have a relocation kit for the sensors. At least one hitch maker is investigating this possibility but no products/kits are available yet. You'll still be able to operate the auto lift gate by triggering one of the side sensors.

Should a Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Be Left in Gear When on Tow Dolly Since your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle is front wheel drive and you would want the front wheels of the vehicle to stay in the dolly while towing you would want to leave it in gear when on a tow dolly like part # RM-2000-1.

Will a Bike Come Off of the Yakima FrontLoader Bike Carrier if the Front Tire Goes Flat A very good question. The fit of the Yakima FrontLoader bike carrier # Y02103 will be looser if the tire was to go flat but it is unlikely that the bike will come out of the carrier. If you put the clamp on up near the front forks it will be harder for the bike to accidently pop out. Another option is to use a carrier that holds the bike frame such as # Y02093. If the tires were to go flat it would not matter since this carrier holds the bike frame.

Can Fuse Taps Be Used When Installing A Brake Controller If you are looking for a power source for your brake controller, I do not recommend using a fuse tap. The brake controller's power needs to be ran through an appropriately sized circuit breaker and to the battery post. The installation instructions will tell you what size circuit breaker to use, usually a 30-amp breaker is sufficient for brake controllers. If you are looking for a way to connect to a stoplight wire, you could use a fuse tap for that. The stoplight wire would only draw.

Installation Video of Roadmaster Brake-Lit Relay in 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Most likely you will not need a brake light relay for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I recommend wiring the Wrangler first and checking to see if you need a brake light relay before installing it.

If the turn signal continues to blink on the Jeep, you will not need a brake light relay. We have not installed.

It is a simple design with few moving parts which limits the chance of something breaking in the scale mechanism. The ball mount is designed for up to 1,500 pounds tongue weight so its ready for heavy duty applications up to 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight and the standard pushing and pulling associated with tow a trailer would not have a negative affect on the mechanism. So far the Weigh-Safe ball.

Ground Location for Universal Installation Kit # ETBC7 on 2000 Volvo S70 I wouldn't recommend grounding your 7-way to the gas tank strap. Due to safety issues, I would stay as far away from the gas tank as possible. Instead I would ground the wire to the frame of your 2000 Volvo S70 making sure that the spot that you choose is free of dirt and corrosion. Changing the ground location could solve the problem. Once you have changed the ground location, if the lights still aren't working, feel free to send me an email and we can continue the troubleshooting process.

Why Does Hopkins Trailer Wiring Harness for 1997 Ford Ranger have Separate Ground Wire Yes, the advantage is that you will get a better ground connection with an independent ground wire on a trailer wiring harness such as # 40215 for your 1997 Ford Ranger.

How to Tell if a 7-Way Has 12 Volt Circuit Active for RF Brake Controller Install Most likely the 12 volt circuit of the 7-way on your 2015 Mercedes Benz GLK250 is active from the factory. You can test this by using a circuit tester like part # 3808 to test the pin in the 1:00 position for voltage. There should be voltage there all the time or at least with the vehicle on. If the dealer said you needed power there most likely you would be installing the RF Brake Controller part # 90250 as that is the circuit that powers it. If the circuit does not have voltage.
