Today on our 2012 Ford F250 were going to install the Pollak 7 way connector in the pickup bed, part #: pk11893-11932. To start our install, we need to go ahead and cut the hole in the pickup bed. In this application were going to mount it just behind the driver side wheel well. The flat spot here to mount on our 7 way right in the side of the bed. Well go ahead and take our hole saw a bit and make our hole. Now well go ahead and take the 10 pole end of our wire and feed it up from underneath the pickup bed through our hole.
Now weve got our wire fed to the side of the bed, we need to mush into our connector. Make sure to follow the color code precisely when installing your wires. Number 1 on our connector is red. Before we get too far Id like to go ahead and install the center pin so that its not difficult to do later on. And that will be number 7 which is going to be our yellow wire.
The number 2 pin is going to be for our white wire, thats our ground. Number 3 pin is going to be for our blue wire. Our number 4 pin is for our green wire, number 5 pin will be the black wire which is our 12 volt battery feed back to our 7 pole and then our last hookup today is going to be the number 6 pin which will be our ground wire. Now that we have all 7 wires hooked up were going to take the blue locking trim and install it. This will lock and hold our connection points in place.
Alright, now were ready to go ahead and plug it into the back of our new 7 pole connector. Line up the locking tabs, firmly press it in place and then throw the grey lock button. Now we can go ahead and install the 7 way into the side of the pickup bed. Using 4 self-tapping screws well go ahead and mount it right here into the side of the bed. Alright, now with the 7 pole mounted in the pickup bed lets go ahead and get underneath and rout our wires and make our connections under the bed.
Next, well go ahead and remove the bracket holding the current manufacture 7 pole off. Theres 2 bolts holding the bracket. This will give us access to remove the manufactures from the manufactures 7 pole and plug the new Polluk 7 pole in line with the manufactures wiring. Lets go ahead and remove the two fasteners now. To give myself a little extra slack were also going to go ahead and remove the plastic tab holding the wiring in place on top of the hitch. Then well press on the connector lock and disconnect it from the 7 pole. Now lets go ahead and rout our wire over to the hitch. The wiring up over the frame near along the channel of the bed. Keep in mind when routing your wires to stay away from moving components such as steering or suspension or excessive heat such as the exhaust. Now well rout it over here to the manufactures 7 pole, well go ahead and make a connection on the vehicle side first firmly plugging it in together connecting the locking tab in place. So I plug the manufacture 7 pole into the new 7 pole connector coming from the pickup bed. Now we can go ahead and reinstall our bracket. Next, well go ahead and use some black zip ties to secure our wiring. Now with our wires secured and all our connections made that will complete the install of Polluk 10 way connector part #: pk11893-11932 on our 2012 Fort F250.
Today on our 2002 Ford Super Duty, well be installing the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Install Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches, part number RP50082-58 in conjunction with the Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Square Tube Slider Dual-Jaw, part number RP30051. The first step of our install is taking the rear base rail and setting it up in our truck bed. Using the measurements provided in our install kit, well go ahead and measure it out from the end of the truck bed. Note: this does not include the tailgate. Then well measure from side to side to make sure the base rail is even. The best recommendation is to go off the weld seam of the truck bed.
Today on our 2012 Ford F250, we're going to install the Reese custom base rail install kit. Part number 500RP73-58. First we've gone ahead and raised the vehicle, remove the spare tire, and the two rear wheels. That's another requirement to make it much easier to install our side brackets on the frame. Now we're in the pick-up bed, and we need to go ahead and set the front base rail--let's go ahead and get it into place. We'll need to measure up the back edge of the bed to the back edge of the front base rail.
Today on this 2006 Ford F 350, we will be installing Reese base rail kits, part number RP50082-58. For some pre setup for this application, I have gone ahead and removed the rear wheels, removed the spare tire. Ive also rolled up the bed mat and got it out of the way. Were ready to install our front base rail. Per our instructions, our measurements is 54 and 3/16th inches. Ive gone ahead and added an extra 8th of an inch to make it 54 and one quarter inches to compensate for the spray in bed liner.
Today on this 2011 Ford F-250 we are going to install part number RP50073-58. There are a few things we need to do to get started. First off we took off the rear wheels that way you can see what is going on a little bit easier and with that ready we will get in the bed of the truck and start marking off for one of the rails for the hitch. We are going to measure from the edge of the bed of the truck itself back to the inside edge of one of the rails. With that part okay we will measure from left to right to make sure it is even. Once you have it the way you want it mark out the holes. 00:34
Today on this 1999 Ford F-350 super duty, we are going to install part number RP50082. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and lower the spare tire so we have access underneath the vehicle. And then once we have that done, we will go into the bed of the truck and we will start marking out the places for our rails. What we are going to do is measure out from the edge of the bed itself, not the tailgate but the bed, and we are going to measure out and place a mark in the bed as described in the instructions. We are going to do that in two places on both sides. Now we have our mounts in our bed. We will line up our first rail and you are going to want to get them even left to right, using the seam right here works out pretty good. Our custom install kit on the bottom is going to use these two outside holes here. So we will find the center and mark that. Do that on both sides of the rail. Alright, let us move our rail out of the way. We will go ahead and drill a couple 1/8 inch holes. Now we are by the frame of the vehicle on the driver side. Now you do not want to really have to take off the back tires but we did anyway for clarity. One thing we know is that our plate is going to have to sit flat on the frame so that our brake cable here is going to be in the way. So, we are going to move that out of the way. There will be a provision to but that back on later on. 1:12
