Today were going to review part number PK11893-11932. This is the Pollak Fifth Wheel Gooseneck T-Connector Wiring Harness with the included 7-way connector for the truck bed. This part is great for trucks that are pulling fifth wheels or goosenecks. This will allow you to provide a second 7-way connector in the bed of your truck closer to your fifth wheel or gooseneck. Basically, what this wiring harness consist of, it will have the 7-way which is to be used in the bed of your truck. You have to drill a hole into the truck bed and then install this.
It will include the harness itself which is a 7-1/2 foot long harness. On one end is the T-connector. On the other end are the loose pins that will need to be pinned in to this connector which youll attach to the extra 7-way. Now basically this will plug into your OEM harness. On your truck you actually have a 7-way already thats like this.
What youll need to do is remove it, unplug underneath your truck, unplug the OEM wiring harness from the back of your factory 7-way thats on there now. Youll take this end of the T-connector and plug it into your OEM wiring harness, this other end with the blue locking ring in there. Well plug into the factory 7-way thats on the back of your truck. Now what you need to do is go to the other end of this harness and -youll see the pins are all loose that need to be pinned to the connector here. What you want to do is if you go to the product page for this part number or the wiring harness, at the bottom of the page we have a picture of this socket and it will show you the numbers on it.
Theres also, if you look real close here, Ill try to show you the numbers are actually marked on the connector itself or the socket right here. That will help you out. What you want to do is on the product page it will show you what wire goes to what number on this socket. It will say number one so youll find the hole here that will have a one by it, which will be right here. Then it will say red wire.
You just take this red wire thats coming out of the harness and then push it into the red hole that has a number one by it. Okay, and when you push it in you can hear it lock into place. It snaps into place and is locked in there. Then youll just go around, take each wire, it will say number two is the white wire. Theres the number two hole. Youll take the white wire and push that in and just go all the way around. Usually what you want to do is I would recommend to also get the middle wire plugged in there because you dont want to have them all plugged on the outside and then it will be hard to get to the middle one. Once the wires would all be connected to this, what you want to do then is take this blue locking ring and line it up with this. Theres a cut out right here and then just push that down over it and that will lock all those pins into place. Before you do this you want to make sure that is pinned correctly because this is pretty hard to get off. It would end up looking like this when this ones already pinned in with the locking plate in. Now, if by chance when you do push one of these in and its the wrong on and the wrong hole you find out, theres a simple solution. All you have to do is look at the one thats wrong. If you say this red one is in the wrong hole, look right here and right underneath where the metal clip is pushed in there, theres a little tab. What you want to do is just take your little screwdriver, push that tab towards the center of this connector and boom, it will allow you to pull the wire right out so theres no harm if you get the wrong one in there, then just get the right one and push it in there. Once you have all these wired correctly or pinned correctly and the locking ring on then you can--this would already be installed in the bed of your truck. Just take this end, line it up, boom, push it right on it will be locked into place. If youre all good with it just push this gray locking ring down and that will lock everything together so nothing will come apart. Before you push this locking ring down, if you need to take it off, just push this little tab down here and that will be removed easily. Just a few tips on installing this to make it a lot easier. This will fit Chevy, GMC, Ford and Nissan trucks. Again, the length of this harness is 7-1/2 ft and it does come with a one-year limited warranty. That should do it for review on part number PK11893-11932.
Today on our 2005 Chevy Silverado, we are going to hook up the hot lead for the seven pull connecter at the back of the truck. To do this well simply remove the fuse box cover and the first position, on the first row is a blank fuse, we are going to remove it and install a 30 amp fuse. With that fuse installed, we can go ahead and replace the cover and were now hot at our seven pull connector. There you have it with the install of the hot lead fuse on our 2005 Chevy Silverado.
Today we are going to troubleshoot a modulite that is not really working so we will check it out and show you what to look for. This will apply to all modulites and this will also apply to converter boxes as well. The only difference being that it does not have a power wire for a converter box. The first thing we want to do is put a tester on the 4-pole just to make sure. We will hook up our ground to our ground lead and then we will turn on the left turn signal which we have going, we have got nothing. You can turn on the other signals and see what we have got, nothing here. Try the running light circuit, nothing here either. 00:28
Today we are going to do the Frequently Asked Questions of what is the difference between a three wire system and a two wire system. It is actually very easy and very simple. All it is, is you take away two wires and the same thing applies to the four and five wire system. Starting off on the car side we are going to attach the wiring to, we are going to have five wires. Green is going to be right turn, red is going to be the brake signal, yellow is going to be left turn, brown is going to be your running lights, and the white is going to be ground. When you talk about the three wire system you are only talking about the right turn, the brake signal, and the left turn. You omit the brown wire and the white wire. That is our three. On the two wire system you are only dealing with the two combined signals, the brake signal and the turn signal on the same wire. We are only dealing with the left and right turn. 00:46
All right today we are going to go over how to check over a modulite as shown right here which converts a 5 wire to a 4 wire system. We are going to go over the basics which are really simple. Basically we are just going to test input into the modulite and test the output of the modulite. That will tell us one of two things, we have no input going into the modulite, that means there is something wrong on the car side of the connector, there is nothing wrong with the modulite. If you have power going into it, but nothing coming out then you know chances are it is the modulite or there is a problem on the trailer itself. When testing you always want to test these modulites or converter boxes without the trailer hooked up first.
Today we are going to cover kind of a different subject. Basically, we are going to talk about getting your wiring installed and what is happening afterward. Okay, for instance, you went to the trouble to get your wiring installed, you plug it into your trailer, and nothing happens. There could be a lot of different things going on with it. First off, you need to figure out for sure whether it is on the towing vehicle side - the car or truck - or if it is something on the trailer. We will show you how to test the different types of wiring systems we have shown here. And that way you can tell for sure if it is your wiring harness or if it is your trailer.
Today we are going to show you a little bit of wiring. Basically kind of like wiring 101 and what to look for when your going to hardwire into the vehicle. What hardwire means is actually getting to the wire and splicing into them to make a connection. T1 connectors are different. They actually have a connection point and harness which you take apart and fit the T in the middle of that. Now on this vehicle we will show you the typical wiring schematics and a couple variants from that. The typical connection point is like where this wiring comes into the back of the tail light and there is always going to be a connection point, almost always. Older vehicles, it would have just ran straight, but with pretty much of your newer vehicles you are always going to have a snap connection like this. Basically a T1 connector simply would just go ahead and fit in between this harness.
