#12 of 21 Pulling campers with Titan trucks
Jul 06, 2007 (5:12 pm)
I have a 28' Dutchman trailer & am looking at the Titan truck because of its horsepower & torque #s I was wondering if anyone had pulled a camper that size with a 06,07 or 08 Titan truck and if so what kind of fuel milage did you get and did it have enough power to pull without being in a strain.

I have an '05 SE with the big tow package. I've towed a 26' power boat that weighed #6,300 and a 29' travel trailer that weighed about the same. No problem with power, but it tends to down shift on slight grades. In the Blue Ridge Mountains the transmission temp rose a bit, but no problems. As to mileage - it really depends on your speed and throttle usage. Accelerate slowly, even though it will move out if needed. At 65 on the interstate(I don't go any faster than that) mileage with a fully loaded trailer is in the upper 9's mpg range. Drop down to just under 60, and I've gotten 11.2 mpg on my best run. No major modifications - synthetic oil, tire pressure at maximum and a K&N air filter. Hope this helps.
#14 of 21 Towing with Titan
Jul 24, 2007 (1:15 pm)
I have an '04 Titan with a tow-package, pulling a 5,500 lb. Frontier camping trailer with it (25.5' long),equipped w/ load distribution hitch, brake controller, sway bar, all the goodies... pulls beautifully at 60-65 mph. With average flat grade and wind I get 8.5- 9 mpg. Although the truck can pull faster than 65 mph, the transmission starts "kicking down", even with tow-button in... Usually I pull with the 4th gear, mountain passes in 3rd or even 2nd, if really steep. I hope this helps.

Location of Fuse/Relay For Trailer Running Lights
Wondering if anyone can help me with a fuse/relay location question for my '05 Titan SE 4x4. I have obviously blown a fuse that powers the trailer running lights. There was power at the 4 pin plug but now it's gone. Brakes & turn signal lights work and they are marked in the fuse box under the hood. Can't seem to locate the running light fuse though.
Any help will be appreciated!

Some vehicles have a second fuse box under the dash on the drivers side, you might want to check the manual. There could also be an in-line fuse near the 4 pin connector, you will need to look at the wiring to see if there is one back there. Before you cause the same problem, do you know what caused the fuse to blow? Back a boat into the water or anything like that?
Hope this helps.

I have a 2006 Titan Crewcab LE with tow package. I tow a 30ft fifth wheel Trail Lite by Trail Bay. I have a Pullrite Slider hitch which works great. Trailer dry weight 7200 lbs. I also put on 2000lbs air bags. With them at 50psi the whole rig is level and headlights shine where they are supposed to. After a year of towing it, maybe 20 different trips, I am very happy with it. The infamous brake issue is now present, with the brakes chattering when they warmup. I am taking it to the dealer this week. I get about 11 mpg and have towed it over the Grapevine(big and long hill here in So. Calif). both ways, no problem, plenty of power. If you have other questions, I would be glad to answer them.

#20 of 21 installing electric brake controller
Sep 25, 2007 (10:34 pm)
I purchased a used 04 Titan 4x4 recently. I want to tow a 24ft Airstream trailer. What would be the best controller to purchase and how is the controller installed,under the dash or elsewhere. Should it be installed by the dealer or can I do it myself. I have read some of the comments about the Titan brake problems. I haven't experienced any as of yet. How can I tell if new 'brakes' have been installed by the previous owner.
#21 of 21 Nissan titan crew 5th wheel lwb
Oct 25, 2008 (6:59 pm)
I would like to buy a nissan titan crew cab with the long box,I think it has a 7'3" box,witch is longer then the box on my dodge,but my problem is that the 5th wheel hitch would cost about $3500.
So,has anyone put a 5th wheel hitch on their nissan without buying that expensive hitch???
If so,could you send the plans on what parts I need to use my old hitch.
Thank you. Steve
