Ford Excursion Trailer Hitches

About Ford Excursion Trailer Hitches

There are a few different items that a Ford Excursion trailer hitch will need in order to function properly. This sturdy device is going to attach to the underneath of the vehicle. The trailer receiver is usually offered with an opening of 1 ¼ inch by 1 ¼ inch, 2 inch by 2 inch or the massive 2 ½ inch by 2 ½ inch. When looking at the frame of the vehicle, you want to align the holes of the hitch with the holes of the manufacturer. When the hitch has been installed then you will need a ball mount. This is a heavy piece of metal that will usually have a bend or two in it. This awesome device will actually slide right into the end of the hitch. They are offered in a variety of styles, different sizes, and many heights. Always make sure you are purchasing the proper mount meant for the hitch and that it has enough strength to keep the trailer level at all times.

Once the ball mount is properly installed then you will need to hold it in place otherwise it will go sailing away quickly. This is what a clip and pin is for. Just slip the pin in the proper hole and push the clip in the end and it is nice and secure. You may want to get a hitch lock to secure your hitch from vandals. It is simple to add on and will prevent people from stealing any part of your Ford Excursion trailer hitch. Now you are ready to add the ball on your hitch. You do not want one too small or big so make sure what the coupler of the trailer will slip over easily. Whatever your needs are you can rest assured that, at CARiD, there are plenty of Ford Excursion trailer hitches and accessories available at all times.

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...

This adapter came with a 7 pin connector. I have most of my equipment set up for the 6 pin round and one trailer that uses a 4 pin flat connector. To use one adapter for both conversions is a big plus.
