Ford Escape Trailer Hitches

If this is the first time for you are trying to install a hitch you may feel a little overwhelmed. Before getting all stressed, bear in mind that it is not a hard task and although there are professionals that can do the job for you, many people have had success the DIY way as well. Each hitch comes with its own set of easy to follow instructions and there are usually tips provided to make the installation a breeze. All you need to do is read the instructions pertaining to Ford Escape trailer hitches and match all the parts to the names. Now look at the diagram and start putting the parts in place. Many hitches are also accompanied by a template, which helps you align the holes correctly and assures you that you purchased the proper size of hitch.

When installing the Ford Escape trailer hitch, it might be necessary to jack the rear up a little as this will serve to enhance the working space. It might become necessary to loosen the rear bumper or even the exhaust system. Just remember whatever bolts are loosened will need to be tightened once the hitch is in place. The hitch might come with some wires. These will need to be installed properly. But this is also not a problem as the manual will show exact details on how the wires need to go. The wires are for making sure the brake lights and turn signals on the trailer work properly. Handymen who love to modify must refrain in case of hitches because each hitch is designed precisely. Therefore even a slight modification would mean that there is a chance of the hitch failing while cruising down the highway. Ready to tow a trailer on your Ford Escape? There are plenty of Ford Escape trailer hitches available at CARiD that are easy to install. Get one of these.

    If you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
    This is the year you got serious about your trailering set-up. You've treated yourself to a new, top-of-the-line pickup truck with a tow rating high enough to pull your house off its foundation if necessary. You used your annual bonus to get that bigger boat you had promised yourself (with your spouse's blessing, of course). The boat dealer told you that you could...
    When it comes to "electricity", many people are either scared silly of it, or run the other way rather than try to learn about it. Since it is a powerful force, it certainly is something to be respected. For us vehicle owners, perhaps we understand that our cars and trucks have a battery under the hood that needs occasional replacement, and light bulbs that may...

    Works Great
    2013 Ford Escape | Posted by Chuck | (Rexburg, ID)

    Works great but could be improved by making the wiring longer which would make the installation easier.
