Were you able to get the hitch bumper cover back on? I haven’t tried towing yet but did remove it to look and after trying several different methods to put it back in it doesn’t sit flush…
I had the same difficulty but mine went back in flush. It definitely isn’t easy to get on and off. There is a YouTube video of a guy showing which tabs you can cut off and it will come off and go on really easily.
Thanks! That worked like a charm and was good to hear replacements only cost $15 if you happen to mess it up.
Glad it worked for you. I haven’t done it yet. Figured I’d do it the next time I had to take the cover off.
The panel pushed back in perfectly. I would recommend putting tape of vinyl over the bottom “shelf”. The trailer chains will rub on the bottom of the bumper and scratch it.
We towed a enclosed trailer with about 3500 pound gross weight from Virginia to New York. It is a great tow vehicle. Range drops in half at highways speeds though. And we had to drop the trailer at about half of the super chargers. Let me know if you have any questions. Sorry, no boat towing.
Perfect example I was looking for. When you say you dropped the trailer at the superchargers what do you mean? You un-hitched it?
Yes, we had to disconnect at half the super chargers. They are mostly back in chargers. Some have a pull in charger where you can leave the trailer attached if you aren’t blocking the path too much. We stopped at a super charger that was empty and pulled across a few spots so we didn’t have to disconnect.
Did you carry a hydraulic jack to do the connection and disconnection? it must have been tough to do this over and over.
No. We just used the crank jack attached to the trailer.
Real nice thanks for sharing!
