Installation Video to Help Install Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 76182 on a 2017 Subaru Forester  


Hi, a couple of the customer reviews for this hitch mention installation videos, but I havent found any videos specific to this hitch. Am I missing something? Thanks!

They may actually be referring to the video for the EcoHitch # 306-X7216 that also fits the 2017 Subaru Forester because the installation is very similar to Draw-Tite hitch # 76182. I have linked a video for the EcoHitch for you which will help with installation of the Draw-Tite hitch though you would want to use it as a guide only while following the Draw-Tite instructions.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring you can use # 118467 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.
