*******www.etrailer****/tv-Wiring-Install-2009-Nissan-Murano.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2009 Nissan Murano we will be installing wiring harness part number 118481. Okay, we are inside the rear cargo area of the Murano here. And the connection points for our wiring harness are going to be located on the inside of the vehicle here. Behind the interior panels on both the driver and passenger sides. To gain access to these connection points we are going to need to do some removing of the interior portions of the vehicle. We need to remove the rear threshold plate here. There are three push pins here at the interior side of the threshold plate that we need to remove. We can do that by simply taking a flat head screwdriver and popping the middle piece up and that will allow the clip to release. From there we can just kind of gently rock back and forth on the threshold plate until the top clips up here release and we can set that side. Next we can remove the side compartments from the inside of the vehicle. There are two screws at the bottom that are holding it in place. We want to remove the passenger side one as well. Next we just need to remove the fasteners holding the interior side wall in. You can see we have got a tie down hook here that has got a screw in it. We can also remove this tie down here. This one is actually a push rivet. To release it we just want to pick a flat head screwdriver and kind of pry the cap back and that will allow the interior clip to release. And we can just pop it right off there. There is a few in board clips here as well holding it in place. You can get in there with a rivet popper or if you do not have that you could use like a flat head screwdriver to get in there. Pull away when you here the release. We want to remove the passenger side one as well. We just need to pull that back and up to gain access to the plug. If you look here wrapped in foam tape is our connecting point. What we do is just separate the two by pressing the little pad here at the top and you just disconnect the two. Next we can go ahead and take our harness and start plugging it into place. Over here on the driver side we want to take the connectors with the yellow and brown wires and plug it in line there. I am going to route the wires behind this junction block here. Again we can just plug the harness in line. You will note here on the driver side connector that we have a white wire with a ring terminal on it and this is our ground wire. What we need to do is find a metal surface to mount that to. The back side of the cargo area here is a nice flat surface right here that we can take our self tapping screw that is provided with our wiring harness and mount the ground wire to it. Okay, next we can take the longer lead, the red and green wires, and route it along this rear threshold area back here over to our passenger side where we are going to connect it behind the tail light assembly. Okay, then we can come back over here to the driver side. We are going to take the red wire here that is connected to our modulite box and we are going to connect it to the large black bundle of wire that is provided with our wiring kit. 04:18. What I am going to do is take and strip back a little bit of the jacketing here on the red wire and we will add a butt connector to it here. We just want to take and crimp that down. And then we will take one of the ends of the 12 gage black wire and connect it to that butt connector as well. Just take some electrical tape and tape that connector up. Next we want to go ahead and take and mount our modulite box to the interior of the vehicle here. And go ahead and adhere that. There is a little lip underneath the underside of where we mounted our brown screw there. I think we can go ahead and secure that there. Next I am going to go ahead and pop the grommet out. What you want to do is take and cut a little hole in the middle where we can that 12 gage black wire through. We will just take and feed it through the hole here. Pull the full length of the wire all the way through and down below. When you have all of the wire down below you can go ahead and re the grommet and then note that the 4-pole is left here. We can do one of two things with that as well. You can either actually enlarge the hole in the grommet there and route the 4-pole down through so that it can be stored underneath the vehicle. Or we could leave it here inside the vehicle and pull it our the rear hatch when we want to use it. I think that is what we are going to do here. I am just going to kind of set it off to the side while I reinstall the components here at the rear of the vehicle. We just want to make sure we zip tie up any loose wires that we may have left over. Now that we have got the cargo area reassembled we can go underneath the vehicle and go ahead and route our wire up to the battery. When routing the wire you just want to make sure you avoid any possible pinch points or hot spots that could damage the wire. Now that we have got the wire routed up under the hood we just need to go ahead and make our connection to the positive terminal of the battery. You can see we have got a cover here over the positive terminal. We can go ahead and remove that. You can see that we have got three different connection points that we can use. We are going to go ahead and use the rear most one here. Then next we are going to take our fuse holder that is provided with our wiring kit here. What we want to do is go ahead and cut the wire loop in half. On one end we are going to add the ring terminal here. I am just going to connect to the positive side of the battery. The other end we are going to strip back and a butt connector and we are going to connect it to the remaining portion of the 12 gage black wire here. Connect to the battery. And that will kind of give you a general idea of how much wire you can cut back with. And we will strip back a little bit of the jacketing again and make our connections to the butt connector. Okay and then we just want to take a little bit of electrical tape and wrap that connector up. Okay, and last but not least we just want to add the fuse to the fuse holder. That will conclude the installation of wiring harness part number 118481 on a 2009 Nissan Murano. 09:10

*******www.etrailer****/tv-5th-Wheel-Install-2005-F350-SuperDuty.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty we are going to install part number 30847-30073 from Reese. There are two ways to get the rails underneath the bed of the truck. What we are going to do is in this case we are going to actually loosen the bed bolts up and pushing that up we will have access. If you can not get the bolts loose then the next best thing you can do is put two cuts into the sheet metal underneath the bed and pry it up out of the way so you can slide the rails in. If we were to cut the bed what we would do is just make a notch here and a notch here and then we just take some vise- grips or some pliers and just pull the sheet metal up and out of our way. Then we can slide the cross member in. Okay we put some spacers between the frame and the bed of the truck just to give us a little extra working room. 00:47 One thing you might want to do before you install the rails is take your tap bolt and actually run it through the threads once or twice because what happens is that inside the threads it gets paint in there and what you may want to do is just go ahead and save yourself some grief later and run the bolt through now just to clean it out. All right when we install the rails just make sure that you have the oval pointing up so the puck can go in from the top side down. Okay we have got our first rail in and you need to push it forward. There is a little breather tube here that we have got to take down and out of the way and we will just work it forward. Okay and I will go ahead and do the second one but it is going to stay pretty much in the same place. 01:33 All right we can go ahead and install our side brackets now. We are going to bolt those right to the cross members. We are going to line up with this hole here. Basically what happens is with the instructions is that this plate is going to actually butt up against the side of this hat channel right here. So what we can do pretty much right now is go ahead and lower the bed of our truck and then secure our bracket back to the hat channel. At this point we can go ahead and snug up the bolts too. We will go ahead and repeat the same process back over on the driver side. At this point we can go ahead and re-tighten the bed bolts. Okay next we will go ahead and install our hardware in the hole going towards the back of the vehicle. We are just going to go ahead and install our bolt and flat washer and on the back side we will install the lock washer, block, and nut. What we will do next is go ahead and snug it down that way we can use the hitch bracket as a temp plate and will not move around while we drill out our forward holes. Then we will follow up with our next sized bit as stated in the instructions. Now that we have got our hole drilled out on the passenger side here, on most applications you will just simply put in another nut and bolt and block assembly on there but in this case the shock mount is right behind here. You will have to use a special neuro bolt that comes with the kit. What we are going to do is fish wire it from the back side out this way. 03:15 The kit does come with a fish wire tool. Just push it through and kind of out the back and down and out to the side. We will thread our bolt in and maneuver it back into position and pull it through. We will leave that in there for now and we will get the rest of our hardware and put that into place. Put on our flat washer, lock washer, and then the nut. When we tighten this down this bolt will actually draw itself into the frame of the vehicle. The thread should be just about at the end of the nut. We will go ahead back to the other side on the driver side it will actually be just a conventional lock and lock washer, washer, plate, and nut. The last hole, what we are going to do is going to be the same as the first two we did. Going back to the driver side, put our flat washer and bolt through and then our plate, lock washer, and the nut. The next step is to go ahead and lock our holes in the bed so we can drill down to make room for the puck. We are going to do that with the marking bolt that is supplied with the kit. We will just run it up until we make a mark in the bed. When you get it running up into place take a moment to make sure you can see the mark on the top side and then move on to the next one. All right we have got our holes marked. What we are going to next is go ahead and loosen these bolts here, move the cross bars out of the way so we have room to drill right through the bed. Move those out of the way as needed for clearance. 05:05 Here is our mark we made in the bed. We actually made it a little bigger than normal just to see it easier and basically what you want to do is just take a simple punch and just kind of round out the hole a little bit just to make sure it is straight and then we can go ahead and use that to start our pilot hole. Now we will do the same thing with the rest of the holes. All right we can go ahead put our cross members and put those back into place. All right at this point we can go ahead and start installing the pucks. Basically what is going to happen is you are going to take the puck, put the beauty ring around it, just go ahead and it into place, and then take your button head bolt and just go ahead and get it started. It helps to get the washer in there first and then start the bolt. You can go ahead and tighten it down and then just go ahead and torque it down as specified in the instructions. Once you get the pucks tightened down, go ahead and get the fifth wheel out and our unit is a pre-assembled unit so what we are going to do is go ahead and give it a test fit to see how it fits. Okay sometimes on these assemblies here what happens is that this part will be off set from the puck itself. The way to fix that is there is a jam nut inside of here which the fifth wheel actually comes with a tool to fix that. Also you want to go around and tighten all of these too because the factory ones will not tighten down actually. So you want to push the pin assembly all the way through and sneak your wrench in there and then tighten it down or loosen it as you see fit. See how you can move it back and forth. You may need just that little bit of play to fit it in just right. So you are going to have to do a couple of test fits, put the fifth wheel into place, check it out and see which one binds up, loosen it up, adjust it, and put it back into place. All right when you tighten these up you want to go snug, you want to go about 1/ 4 of a turn. All right once you have the nuts tightened down, lock them into place using these three little tabs and this retaining washer here and what you want to do is flip up the tab that matches the flat side that of the nut valve. It might be the front one, it might be the rear one. Okay that one is locked into position and then just go ahead and do the same thing for the other three. All right once you have it fully adjusted the hitch should slide in, you may have a little bit of friction you may have to push in a little bit but that is good. When you are all said and done you will have a little tiny bit of movement but you should not have hardly anything at all. All right while we are up here we will go ahead and install the handle assembly. It simply slides into place, two bolts in, the lock washer and nut on the bottom, and tighten it down. Okay now we can go ahead and torque these bolts down. With that, that finishes our install of part number 30847-30073.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2006-kia-sorento.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to install part number 87425 from Hidden Hitch, and we are going to install this on a 2006 Kia Sorento. First step, we will go ahead and take down this rubber exhaust hanger. Just spray it down with some lubricant and we will just take a pry bar and just kind of pry it off of it. Sometimes these threads in here will get clogged up with dirt and rust and whatnot. It is a good idea to spray them down with some WD-40 and then clean them out, and then run your bolts in and out to help clean it out. We can go ahead and start installing the hitch. It is kind of an odd-shape design so it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands in there to help lift it into position. One end is going to go over the exhaust, and the passengers side is going to go straight into the frame. Once you get all the bolts started, you can go ahead and snug the bolts down. Next we will go ahead and torque down the bolts as listed in the instructions. Go ahead and reinstall our exhaust back onto the rubber hanger. All right, and that covers it for part number 87425 from Hidden Hitch.

I will go ahead and show you where the hitch mounts up on the vehicle. This is actually relatively easy although you do want to have an extra set of hands when you put it up there. It is going to install in these two holes at the end of the frame right here. This is a new vehicle so the threads are relatively clean however if you have an older vehicle what you want to do is go ahead and clean out those threads just to make sure. This is going to be identical on both sides of the vehicle. We do not even have to take down the exhaust either. All right we have got the threads cleaned out. We can go ahead and put the hitch up into position. Again it is a good idea to have and extra set of hands to hold it up. 00:37 All right we have got our bolts started, you have got a little bit of movement left and right. Move it to the center as best as possible. And then go ahead and just snug up the bolts. Now we have got our bolts snugged down you can go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2005-honda-odyssey.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 90153 on a 2005 Honda Odyssey. The attaching points for the hitch are going to be on both sides of the frame. They are going to be these rear 2 most weld nuts. On a lot of the models that have seen at least one winter you will see lots of road grime and corrosion built up into these weld nuts. So definitely it would do you some good to go ahead and lubricate these with some WD40 and clean them out as best you can with the wire brush or basically anything you can get in there to clean it out. We are going to need to remove the exhaust off the exhaust hanger. Okay, with the weld nuts throughly cleaned out, we are going to want to go ahead and put the hitch up into position. We can start by mounting the hardware on the driver side here because on the passenger side we can use the exhaust to hold the hitch up. With the bolts loosely installed we just want to go ahead and tighten them down. With these bolts tightened down the only step left is to torque them down. These bolts get torqued down to about 76 foot pounds. Now that we have the bolts torqued down, you want to make sure you put your exhaust back onto the hanger. That will conclude the installation of hitch part number 90153 on a 2005 Honda Odyssey.

On this 2009 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number 87494 from Hidden Hitch. This will also apply to part number 75651 from Draw-Tite. All right we will go ahead and show you the attachment points. The hitch is going to attach on this bumper bracket right here and mounts on the side of the bumper bracket back here. Our hardware is going to be this bolt, the conical tooth washer, the hitch, and there is another conical tooth washer behind the bumper bracket and the nut itself. Then just go ahead and bring the hitch up. And we have a bolt already sitting in there, so lets push it into place, and we will put our hardware behind it just to hold it. All right we will go ahead and do the same thing for the drivers side. All right we will go ahead and put our bolt from the outside in just to the hitch, and it is going to come out the oval here. And then since there is such a big hole here a bushing actually fits inside. It is a thick washer, just going to go up there and take up space. The big square block is going to sit on top of it and then a flat washer on top of that and then the lock washer and nut. Make sure the flat round thick washer stays inside the frame and does not get pinched or anything like that. Again we are just going to do it finger tight because we may have to move it around just a little bit more. And we are going to do the same thing on the drivers side. Basically you have got it right, this hitch is sitting flat on the frame bracket here to and the hardware is sitting at an odd angle. We are actually going to go ahead and torque those down as specified in the instructions. In a a few short simple steps this hitch has already been installed. And there you have it for part number 87494 from Hidden Hitch.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-wiring-install-2006-kia-sorento.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to install part number 118307 from Tow Ready, and we are going to install this T-1 connector on a 2006 Kia Sorento. We are also going to be using part number 118144, 4-pole bracket, as part of this install. First we will install our bracket, and we will just install a couple of simple screws that come with the package. And then we will install our T-1 connector 4-pole harness into that. All right, the Sorento already has a port installed from the factory, so it is a simple matter of plugging the T-1 harness into this port right here. So you push down this button on top, and then take a screwdriver to catch the edge of it. It helps kind of get it started where you can pull it out. Pretty much from here it is a matter of preference where you are going to route the wire. But you can just go ahead and go behind the spare tire bracket and just plug it into place. Then all you have got to do is mount your box. Now back on top of here is actually a nice, flat area you can actually adhere it to. So let us clean that off and then use the adhesive backing to put it in place. Then you can route your harness around the back side of the hitch and into your bracket out front here. OK, then we will bundle up the rest of it right here. That covers it for part number 118307 from Tow Ready.

On this 2006 Ford Ranger we are going to install part number 70181 from Hidden Hitch. Okay looking at the drivers side frame rail I will show you where the hitch mounts up. It is going to mount up on the bottom of the frame right here using an existing hole and also, two bolts go into the side of the frame. It is going to be identical on both sides. :17 What we are going to do first of is our hardware on the bottom edge of the frame and will hold our hitch up and go ahead and install the hitch by the two bottom bolts. We are going to leave this loose, so I can move the hitch around while I put the bolts into the side of the frame next. :37 All right the same thing is going to happen as before, the bolts are going to come from the inside, out. Make sure you are not caught behind any wires. And repeat the process back on the passenger side. Once you have all your bolts started go ahead and snug them down. Once you have all the bolts snugged down go ahead and torque them down as specified in the instructions. And with that easy install that finishes it for part number 70181 from Hidden Hitch.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-install-2002-GMC-Sierra.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing Curt hitch part number 13322 on a 2002 GMC Sierra. The first thing you want to do is go ahead and lower the spare tire to get it out of your way. OK, we are looking at the drivers side of the vehicle here. At the bottom of the frame you can see we have got an existing bolt. We are going to be removing that off both sides of the vehicle, and we will be replacing that with new hardware. Just forward of that is an existing hole as well that we are going to be using a carriage bolt and block - just it down from the top of the frame, down into place. And then here on the bumper itself we have got two existing weld nuts. Those are going to provide the rear-most attaching points for the trailer hitch. And again, we are going to be using the hardware that is provided in the installation kit. We will go ahead and take our carriage bolt and block and that into place. The next thing we want to do is go ahead and remove the bolts from the end of the frame rail on both sides, and then we can go ahead and put the hitch up into position. We are going to replace the bolts that came out of the frame with the new 14-millimeter bolts, along with the conical-tooth washers. We are also going to be using those bolts in the bumper as well. OK, we are going to go ahead and put the hitch up into position now. It helps to get the proper order of operations here to make the install easier. I first attached the carriage bolts at the forward-most attaching point. Now I am coming back and doing the ones in the bumper second. That will help to get them aligned easier. And then we will come and do the weld nuts in the bottom of the frame last. We want to leave everything loose for the time being until we get all the bolts in. OK, with all the bolts in place, we can go ahead and tighten them up. And now that we have got all the bolts in place, we can go ahead and torque them down. You want to check with your directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for each individual bolt. OK, now that we have got all the bolts torqued down, you just want to make sure you put your spare tire back up into place, and your installation will be complete. This will conclude the installation of hitch part number 13322 on a 2002 GMC Sierra.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-wiring-install-2006-chevy-silverado.aspx Today we are going to install part number 30955 from Hoppy, and we are going to install this wiring harness adapter onto a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. First we will show you where the original factory harness plugs into. It is above the spare tire. That is the connector right here. And what happens is we just unclip it, pull it out, and we will plug it into the back of the wire harness adapter. So let us go ahead and unclip it. This cap comes off. Push this button down here, and we are ready to install our adapter harness. On the bumper here we are going to install our bracket. There is a nice, flat spot right here. Just go ahead and mount the connector. Instead of using the screws that came with the kit, we are just going to use some self-tapping screws, which you can find at any local hardware store. Okay, next we will install our wiring adapter onto the bracket. We will install it with the supplied hardware. Next we will route our wire harness over the top of the hitch and we will just plug into our adapter. Just push them together until they make a very slight click. Once you have them together, it is a simple matter of just zip-tying this back up into place, up and out of the way. All right, and with those few steps, that finishes our install of part number 30955 from Hoppy.

Today we are going to install part number 13223 from Curt, and we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. We will show you where the hitch mounts up on the frame. It reuses these existing holes where these bolts are right now. This tie-down hook actually gets taken off the vehicle and left off, and it is going to be the same thing on the passengers side, where this tie-down loop will get taken off as well. And these pieces will stay off the vehicle. Also, we did take down the spare tire, just to get a little easier working room, and the spare tire will go back up in its place when we are done. All right, when you take this down, there is a threaded fitting here which the hitch uses, too. We are going to take some time here and actually clean that out really good. Spray it down with some lubricant and run the bolt in and out. Sometimes, in an aged vehicle, you may have to run a tap through it to clean it out. All right, now at this point we can go ahead and start installing the hitch. And we will install the hitch using the bolts and the holes that we just cleaned out the threads in. All right, and we just slip in our bolts. We have a long bolt the flat washer will go up, and just put the nut on top, just enough to get it started. When the drivers side is done, do the same thing on the passengers side. All right, now that we have got all our bolts started, let us go ahead and snug them down. Torque them down to the specified torque ratings in the instructions. OK, with the hardware installed, the only thing that is left over is to put the spare tire back up. And that covers our install of part number 13223 from Curt, on our 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2008-toyota-corolla.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2008 Toyota Corolla S we are going to install part number 11266 from Curt. This hitch is going to be relatively easy to install. There are four holes that are threaded in the frame. These two are on the passenger side of the vehicle. Over here on the driver's side it is going to be an identical set up. :20 The threads here are a little bit corroded even though it is a 2008, there is still some rust and dust in there so take some time to clean those out first. Spray some WD-40 in there run the bolt in and out to clean it out and then if necessary you may need to run a tap through if it is really corroded. The start was easier so what you want to do is run it in a little bit then back it off and run it in and back it off. Using a wrench you do not want to tighten it down, you just want to run it in a little bit and back it off until you run the bolt all the way through. You want to do that with all the remaining holes. :49 Now we can go ahead and install our hitch. All it requires is a bolt and a conical tooth washer. Go ahead and install it to the frame. Now that we have all our bolts started we can go ahead and snnug them down. Then we can torque them down as specified in the instructions. Roughly from the edge of the bumper to the hitch pin hole center it is 7 inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground it is approximately 12 inches tall. With all the bolts torqued down that finishes our install already. There you have it for part number 11266 from Curt.
