I am thinking of adding a 2 inch receiver hitch to the back of my hybrid so that I can use an existing 4 bike rack. I found a universal Husky hitch that adjusts in its span. It calls for welding in the instructions. I emailed the manufacturer and asked them if it would be ok to bolt the hitch to the side rails of the frame instead of welds.
They responded starting with they dont recomend that stating that I would be assuming liability. Then he said he has seen lots of people do it and its never been a problem.
My question is has anyone bolted a receiver hitch directly to the frame, and if so did it hold up ok?
Still searching for the perfect solution to carting 4 bikes around.Driving an F-150 and taking bikes in back(wastes a lot of room).Roof is out of the question because of the canoe. I have an existing bike rack but using a front hitch on the truck the bikes will sit too high. Would like a hitch installed on the back of my Coyote 22cts (not bumper)but frame is aluminum.
I have been told about and now seen in person the Avrika bike racks made here in Canada. They sure look nice but I would like to here of some personal experiences. Having the bikes where I can see them is a plus for sure. My concerns are when backing into tight spots the truck is awful close to the trailer already some times. Also do they sit too high to be comfortable to take bikes on and off?
Since buying the Coyote last September we had not used the oven until trying three weeks back. The propane was getting to the three burners on top but nothing when trying to lite the oven pilot.
Told the dealership and they looked at it a few days later. They said it was just an air lock. Picked the trailer up after hours Friday past to bring it to storage and quickly tried it to see if I could get a propane smell from the pilot but nothing.
Am I doing something wrong and is there an easy fix for this to save me travelling back to the dealer? It is still under warranty just hoping to save a hassle.
Thanks for any help.
