Taking your truck or SUV on a trip? Maybe you're planning to tow a trailer. If you want to do it safely, there are a few GM trailer towing accessories you'll need first. One's a trailer hitch adapter. It's also called a hitch receiver. It hooks up to the frame of your vehicle, letting you connect other components in the process, like ball mounts and trailer balls. These connect to a trailer coupler in turn. Stick a hitch pin or hitch lock in your trailer ball, and your hitch and receiver will stay together better. Of course, you'll also need trailer lighting, preferably that connects to your taillights. Ditto for trailer brakes. You can add it easily with the right wiring harness. One of those will even let you connect an auxiliary power source if you need one. Be sure to finish up by putting on a safety chain. It'll help keep your trailer and vehicle from detaching. With everything installed, you're all set to hitch up and start hauling everything from boats and jet skis to dirt bikes, ATVs, and more. More importantly, you'll be able to do it smoothly, stably, and effectively, around corners, up hills, and over bumps.
