Subaru Crosstrek Owners Manual: Connecting a trailer

Connecting a trailer

  1. Ball mount
  2. Hitch pin
  3. Safety pin
  4. Hitch receiver tube

1. Insert the ball mount into the hitch receiver tube.

2. Insert the hitch pin into the hole located on the hitch receiver tube so that the pin passes through the ball mount.

Connecting a trailer

  1. Hitch ball installation point
  2. Hooks for safety chains

5. Attach a hitch ball. Use only a hitch ball that is appropriate for the ball mount and your trailer. The hitch ball must be securely installed on the ball mount.

6. Connect your trailer to the hitch ball.

7. Connect the trailer and the hitch with safety chains that will hold the trailer's maximum gross weight. The chains should cross under the trailer tongue to prevent the tongue from dropping onto the ground in case it should disconnect from the hitch ball. Allow sufficient slack in the chains taking tight turn situations into account; however, be careful not to let them drag on the ground.

WARNING

Do not connect safety chains to any part of the vehicle other than the safety chain hooks.
