Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring for a 2011 Chevy Cruze to Tow a Jet Ski


i have a 2011 chevy cruze and want to tow a jet ski trailer wanting to know how the Draw-Tite would conect to car and how to hook up lights to trailer thanks for ur time


Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24882, will bolt to the bottom of your 2011 Chevy Cruze using factory holes in the frame rails. While there is no drilling needed, you might need to enlarge an existing access hole in order to fish the hardware through to bolt on the hitch. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the hitch for you to view.

The hitch does not com with a ball mount. You will need # 3593. You will also need a ball and trailer wiring to complete the towing set up. For a ball, you can use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter) depending on what the Jet Ski trailer coupler requires.

The correct trailer wiring for your vehicle is the T-One Connector w/Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite, # 118508. There are 4 connections that need to be made to install this wiring harness. One behind each tail light, a ground, and a connection to the positive battery terminal via the included fuse and fuse holder. A connection to the battery is required to provide power to the converter which also supplies most of the power to the trailer lights. This protects the electrical components of the vehicle.

I have included a link to the installation instructions for the wiring as well.
