Today a 2011 GMC Sierra. We're going to the Draw-Tite fifth wheel and gooseneck wiring harness with a 7-pole connector, part number 20110. A few things to know about wire harness is that it's length is 7 and 1/2 foot long so you can keep it near the tailgate or made for a sliding camper. You can run it towards the cab of a truck. It does simply plug it between OEM wiring harness and the factory installed 7-way connector.

It's part number is C31023. Here's what our hitch looks like once we get it installed here on the front of the Sierra, really nice clean-looking hitch, beefs up the look of the front end a little bit. It doesn't protrude out pass the front edge of our bumper. That straight line would be about there, so we're going have maybe an inch and a half, 2 inches because it's tucked back in but it sticks out far enough that we've got plenty of access room for our pin hole. We've used all existing bolts, some to hold the tow hooks in, some for the bumper.

We're ready to hook up to our trailer, plug it in, connect our safety chains, and still have without weight distribution a 6,500 pound maximum trailer weight rating, a 650 pound ton weight rating, and if we step up into that weight distribution, we're then going to go to a 1,200 pound ton weight rating here at the rear and a 12,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. That's when used with the select super hitch magnum or original series trailer hitch receivers. Now if you're going to be looking at a shorter model, check those weight specifications. If you're looking at one of the longer models, check those weight specifications just to make sure we're staying within line there. The super truss is a perfect solution for extending our pin hole or our mounting location rearward to give us room for those bed-mounted campers and things such as that that tend to interfere.

NC, that means there's no trailer connected to our truck.

The boost adjusts how aggressively your brakes come onto to your trailer, depending on the size of your trailer and the weight you are hauling. Now we'll go ahead and hook our trailer up and test out our brake controller. We don't have a trailer plugged, in so it'll be no connection.





GMC Sierra Questions

  • The first thing you will need is a battery and a battery box. The wiring for the light will need to be connected directly to this battery via a switch that you can get at a hardware store if the light does not already have a switch. Or you can install a new light that has a switch like the Trailer Dome Light with Switch and Aluminum Base, # IL61CB. Mount the switch in the trailer, route the wiring from the light to the switch, and then from the switch to the battery. If the...

  • Yes, there are fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapters and we do carry them. Gooseneck hitches are typically used to haul construction or agricultural trailers and fifth-wheel hitches are mainly used to haul campers. Gooseneck hitches are usually rated to haul 25,000 to 30,000 pounds, some fifth-wheel hitches are capable of doing the same, but other fifth-wheel hitches are rated lower. When towing, your towing setup is only as strong as the weakest towing component, whether it is...

  • Reese is a leader in the towing industry and we sell more Reese hitches than any other brand. It is height adjustable from 14-1/2 to 18 inches. The jaw on the Reese hitch is a double jaw style. This is a safe and secure style. Only the single hook is considered to be better. It has a double pivot head. The next step down is the Pro Series hitch, # PS30855. This is a very economical hitch aimed at the first-time 5th wheel trailer owner. It is height adjustable from 13 inches...

  • In my opinion you are going in the right direction with a frame mounted receiver. The only advantage to a weld on application is that, if welded properly, the attachment point, weld, will be stronger than the hitch or trailer frame steel and one of those two would have to fail before the weld would break. Bolt on installations are easier to install and are rated for the same capacities as most of the weld on models, and many of the hitches offer both options. For bike racks...

  • The brake controller port on your 2005 GMC Yukon Denali will be located in the black junction box, which is under the dashboard and to the left of your steering column, right above the carpet. The plug in point will be the second port from the left, on the top row. I have included a link to instructions for a brake control wiring adapter # 3015-P that plugs in at this same point, if needed. If you do not already have a brake controller, I would recommend the Prodigy...

  • To install a fifth wheel hitch on your 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed, you will need to use a fifth wheel hitch with a slider. The slider is used to eliminate clearance problems between the truck cab and the fifth wheel trailer on slow speed turns. The Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30047 you have referenced is a fixed hitch and will not give you the clearance you will need to tow a fifth wheel with a 6-1/2 foot bed. I would recommend the Reese 16K Fifth Wheel...

  • There are Husky Liners GearBoxes available for your 2014 Sierra. For a 1500 series, use part # HL09031. For a 2500 or 3500 series, use part # HL09001. The GearBoxes are only available in black. If your Sierra is a 2500 or 3500 series, DU-HA offers a similar item in Tan, part # DU10044 which might be close enough to the floor or seat color.

  • On your 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE, when installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885, you will need to activate the brake controller power post under the hood with a 30-amp fuse in the correct slot in the power distribution box. Also, to activate the 12-volt power lead post under the hood you will need a 40-amp fuse in the correct slot in the power distribution box. Most vehicles are already equipped with the fuses for the brake controller power post and...

  • The 2,600 lb axles on your Load Rite boat trailer are likely de-rated 3,500 lb axles, so you should have no problem using 3,500 lb brakes and drums. The important factor to consider in this situation is that the brakes match the brake mounting flange on your axle and that the hubs/drums match your spindles. Almost all 3,500 lb brake assemblies require a 4-bolt brake mounting flange. The bolt holes on the brake mounting flange should be 2-7/8 inches apart on center. If your...

  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup, this includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2013 GMC Sierra. I attached an FAQ article on how to determine tongue weight for you to check out also. Since you said your trailer has a tongue weight of 950 lbs I am assuming that is an unloaded figure, for a weight distribution system with sway control that would most likely work I would recommend...

  • The play that you are experiencing with the Titan Hitch Box Extension, # RP45292, is normal. This is present because of manufacturing tolerance differences between the hitch extension and receiver and the length of the extension is magnifying the play. It would be a good idea to go with a Hitch Immobilizer, # BX88225 to eliminate as much movement as possible with the extension, but it is not required. Just be sure that when installing the immobilizer that you do not tighten...

  • In the under hood accessory fuse block there are two power posts on the engine side of the block. The post closest to the front of the truck should have a wire connected to it that runs back to the factory trailer connector and provides 12 volt power at the 1:00 position as you have stated. If there is not a wire present at this location, you may need to run a 10 gauge wire and splice it into the black wire at the back of the vehicle to provide power. If the wire is there,...

  • Since your 2001 GMC Sierra came with a factory installed 7-way trailer connector, GM should have already completed the connections under the hood at the fuse box. However, we have found that GM did not complete the wiring on all trucks, even if they came with the factory trailer wiring. If you plug in your brake controller using a plug-in style wiring harness, like part # 3025-P for Tekonsha brake controllers, and the brake controller does not power on, then the wiring under...

  • To install the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, # 39510, or any brake controller in your 1997 GMC C/K series 1500, there are a couple of items you will need in addition to the brake controller. First, if the truck does not already have a 4-Way trailer connector, you will need to add one, # 118315. Installation is easy. This harness plugs in line with the vehicle tail lights. After making that connection, you will just need to attach the white ground wire to a clean, bare...

  • If you have a 7-Way connector on the rear of your 2006 GMC Sierra, the number 4 contact, in the 1 o-clock position, looking inside the connector from the rear of the vehicle, should be the 12 volt hot wire contact (see link). Check this contact with a circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed. If you do not have power to this contact then you will need to determine if there is a blown fuse. This fuse is under the hood in the power distribution box (see link). There should be a 40...

  • If the vehicle has the factory installed integrated trailer brake controller (ITBC), the tow package wiring that exists under the dash is used to install an aftermarket controller. The wiring is located under the dash, above where the driver's left knee would be. Look for a wiring harness with a white tag on it. The red/black tow package wire connects to the black controller wire The white tow package wire connects to the white brake controller wire The light blue tow package...

  • Thank you for the compliment. Yes, the pilot hole size is very important when the trailer uses lug bolts. That means the wheel is a hub centric wheel instead of a lug centric wheel. The difference is the wheel that is hub centric will center off the pilot hole size and a lug centric wheel will center off of the studs that are on the hub. You are correct the 12 inch wheels do not have the 2.5 inch pilot diameter. The 10 inch wheels with the 4 on 4 bolt pattern are the correct...

  • The shank that is included with the Blue Ox Sway Pro system, # BXW2000, is shank # BXW4000. According to Blue Ox, the shank by itself is rated for 2,000 pounds tongue weight and 20,000 pounds gross trailer weight. In my honest opinion I would recommend a different system that is more robust considering the weights we are dealing with here. For that though you would need to install a special hitch for your 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD. You would need a Torklift 2-receiver hitch #...

  • There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the 2003 Fleetwood Prowler 275 CKS that will list the number pin box that is on the trailer. If you cannot find the number you can use the measurements of the bolt holes of the pin box to determine which one you have. I attached an FAQ on how to do this for you to check out also. Once you figure out which pin box you have you can check the FAQ I attached that has a chart that shows the correct Sidewinder to get...

  • For a fifth wheel hitch, we do have applications for the 5.5 ft. bed of the 2010 GMC Sierra 1500, but use of a Sidewinder King Pin is required for clearance. A Sidewinder King Pin will move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 Inches which will give you additional clearance needed to make turns (see Sidewinder FAQ). Before buying a fifth wheel trailer, I would recommend using our Pin Box Conversion chart that shows all the fifth-wheel pin boxes that are compatible with Sidewinder...
