Today, on our 2011 F250, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Pollak fifth wheel and gooseneck t-connector with 7-pole plug in. The part number is PK11893-11932. The first step in getting our wiring installed in the vehicle is going to be, getting our wires set into the back of our plug. They're just going to slide in. There's little clips in there that are going to hold them into place. What we need to do is match it up, exactly like one of our other plugs. We'll turn these the same way.
Today on our 2011 Ford F250 we're doing a test fit of the Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitchmount and Load Extender. That part number is DTA944. Now we already have it loaded up in our first position and we're going to go over some features then show you our second position. Here this is going to be great for anything that's a large load, maybe across the top of your cab all the way back, or if you have it sitting diagonal from your truck bed to your extend-a-truck here. We've got our two points on either end, those would be great for tie down points. If you don't have any straps to go with this we do have some available here at etrailer.com. We've got all these different mounting points, five different holes where you can mount the T portion here. So you can line it up with your cab, or if you have a roof rack you can line it up with that, or you can have it lower, however you need to adjust it, it does adjust in those increments there. We're going to take a few measurements. First is going to be the closest point, we're going to have about 7 1/2 inches, added to our vehicle we have about 9 1/2 inches and we got a ground clearance of about 16 1/2 inches.
Today, on our 2014 Ford F250, we'll be installing the Curt 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness with 7-pole connector, Part Number C56000. We need to find a suitable place to mount our 7-way connector. We're going to do it down here on the lower left corner of our bed. Drill a pliant hole here first, and we're using a 2 1/8" hole saw to make a final hole. We'll grab our end of our wiring harness here, come up from underneath our bed side, and stick it up into the hole. We'll pull our wire up a little bit, and we'll make our connection onto our new 7-way in our bed.

Today in our 2008 Ford F-350, we'll be installing the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails, part number 49080. Now a great feature about having this adapter verses an under-bed gooseneck mount, is if you have a lot of trailers that you have to tow that are either gooseneck or fifth wheel, you are able to do that easily just by pulling the pins, removing it, and switching out your adapter to a fifth wheel. Removing it is as simple as pulling our clip, pulling our pin out, doing that on all four corners, and lifting it out. Once we have it back in place, when we're hooking it onto a different trailer or hooking our gooseneck back up, reinsert the pin, reinstall the clip just like that. Now you may notice right here we have our loops that go through here where we can wrap our safety chains through and connect our safety chains from our trailer together. We have one here on the front and one at the back because this adapter, if we need to bring our trailer closer to the cab of our truck, you notice it's offset. We can just flip it 180 degrees and reinstall our clips. Now this Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter has a 25,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating and a 6,250 pound max gross tongue weight rating. Here's what our gooseneck adapter plate comes with. Obviously we have our gooseneck adapter plate here, which comes with a 2-5/16 inch ball. When you flip this around you just want to make sure your ball is not behind your rear axle.

These are also compatible with Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley, and Husky fifth wheel hitches. Now with the use of our custom brackets, it's going to cut down on our installation time over a universal kit because everything's going to line up with some pre-drilled holes in your frame. Some vehicles do not have the pre-drilled holes, but most of them do. Now, another nice feature about these side plates is the bolts that come through the floor are actually on the outside of the frame rail, where on some of our fifth wheel hitches, they're going to be on the inside and a lot harder to torque.

The nice thing about this cargo carrier is that it has these walls all the way around that clip together in order to make sure that you can get your cargo in here, but you don't have to worry about tying it down nearly as much to make sure that it stays contained. This is very handy because it'll give you a good idea of exactly how much you can fit. Now, this cargo carrier does have a 450 lb capacity. It's got a steel mesh floor down here on the bottom in order to help make sure that dirt and debris falls through and doesn't collect so that it can get onto the bottom of your cargo.
