TOWING GUIDE

DISCOVER WHICH TOWING COMPONENTS YOU NEED TO SAFELY HAUL YOUR CARGO.

There are so many options to choose from when selecting towing components. Let us guide you to the right parts the first time, to get you and your cargo where you're going safely and with confidence.

Always remember that your towing capacity is limited by the weakest component in the towing system.

HITCH



The hitch is the receiver that attaches to the vehicle and is the biggest part to the towing system.

MOUNT AND BALL


The ball mount and ball is inserted into the receiver. The trailer coupler is latched to the ball which is securely fastened to the mount.

WIRING



Trailer lights and in some cases trailer brakes are operated by the tow vehicle's electrical system. A wiring harness or controller is needed to connect the tow vehicle to the trailer.

ACCESSORIES



Safely securing your cargo to the trailer is vital, and safely securing your trailer when in use or not in use is just as important.
