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.

There are four major types of trailer hitches, regardless of whether they are installed at the factory or added on afterward. A hitch may simply have a bar sticking out past the bumper with a ball mounted to it. Or there may be a square receiver that takes a ball mount that slides into it. In all cases, there are different weight ratings.
When you’re setting up your trailer with a new tow vehicle, several things need to be considered: the ball mount and ball must be rated to take the weight, and the ball has to be at the right height. Once you have determined the proper weight class, choose a ball mount of a high enough class for your trailer, and set up your ball mount and ball for proper towing....

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.
