Hooked up the trailer light kit on my 2002 wrx 2 days ago. Car has been sitting cause of my axle but now my new battery is dead.

Could the light kit cause a drain on the battery? I checked all the connections and every seems correct. Waiting all day for Etrailers tech to call me back.

Never mind, talked to etrailers and tested the system, it is working as it should be.

Installed a Curt hitch, 1.25 to 2.0 inch adapter and a Thule XTR T2 Bike Rack on my 06 Impreza Outback Sport.

No it definitely isn't very hidden. Seems as though the Reese, Curt and Drawtite hitches all look/mount the same for these cars. I will be taking the stickers off to make it slightly more subtle.

Curt hitch. Bolted up great, use it to tow trailers around (I work for uhaul), and I moved with it. I love that you can barely even see it. Most people don't ever notice unless I tell them it's there.

So you work for uhaul.. And thats how you run your trailer light wiring??



You know there's a plug right in front of the spare tire that you can run the wiring through?

Some of us don't even want to deal with the plug. I store that wire/connection next to the spare tire, and pull it out when needed. No need to subject any moisture to the inside of the car if I don't have to. One less hole in the car to deal with.

Yeah I guess. I would rather have a extra hole then have wires and a hard plastic plug rubbing away at the paint on my bump. We all know how cheap the paint is on our cars. :/

The wiring for the taillights is on the inside unlike a pickup where they will run under the car. That's how most wiring is done now. And it lasts a lot longer, they don't corrode. Especially because most wiring set ups use powered modules, it's much better to keep it inside. And the little rubber cord doesn't do anything to the bumper. No rub marks or scratches.

Im looking to put a hitch on my 04 TS wagon. Anyone have any experience? I am looking at Curt hitch from etrailer http://www.etrailer.com/hitch-2004_Subaru_Impreza.htm

I believe this car has a built in wiring harness adapter, does anyone know which one will fit?
