  2. Drawtite trailer hitch install with Tekonsha Plug n Play Harness

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Installed the Drawtite hitch today- after reading a few of the install threads here and watching the etrailer video on Youtube.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ulg3qaTC55E) One major difference saved me a bunch of time. Instead of pulling the rear bottom panel I left in place and trimmed it...
  3. Should I accept shipment of this Draw-tite hitch? Opinions wanted.

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Ordered a new Draw-Tite 24947 hitch for my 2018 Volt. It arrived yesterday, to my surprise, with no box. It was just wrapped in a few skimpy pieces of cardboard and a lot of poly-wrap. I've ordered a lot of things online in my life, and never seen anything like this! It seems to have survived...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Do you use a bike rack with your Volt? Are you happy with your bike rack? Can you post a picture of your bike rack and tell us about it? Bentbiker suggested some questions that I've modified here since I'm really looking for personal experiences: 1.) Did you install a hitch receiver? 2.) Do...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi, Just wanted to share some info on pulling a trailer with a Volt. I searched for info before making my trip and found very little, so maybe this will help others who wonder about the Volt and pulling trailers.
