Today on our 2008 Chevrolet Silverado we'll be installing the Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Goose Neck 90 degree wiring harness with seven-pole plug, part number 41157. To begin our install we'll first go ahead and find the mounting location for our new seven-pole connector in the pickup bed. Now we've located it we'll go ahead and draw out a pilot hole.Then using our hole saw we'll go ahead and open it up to the final size as per the instructions. Now with our hole in the bed created well go ahead and get underneath the vehicle, take the wiring harness and feed it up through the hole we just cut out. Next we'll get back into the pickup bed, take our seven-pole plug and connect it to the wiring harness.Quick tech tip: before you make this connection I recommend you use the dielectric grease provided with the install kit to put it over the terminal connections. This will help to assist in keeping out moisture and corrosion.
Now we're ready to go ahead and mount the seven-pole in the side of the pickup bed. Use the self-tapping screws provided with our install kit.With that done we'll move back underneath the vehicle and go ahead and start routing our wire. Keep in mind when routing your wire to stay away from the moving components such as standard suspension or excessive heat such as exhaust. Now we've routed behind the bumper we can go ahead and remove the manufacturer's seven-pole wiring harness from the back of the seven-pole plug mounted in the bumper.Next go ahead and take the manufacturer's seven-pole connector and our new wiring harness, apply some more terminal grease to both connection points. Once we do that we can then take the seven-pole plug and the manufacturer's wiring and plug them together.
Then we'll take our new wiring harness and plug into the back of the seven-pole connector behind the bumper.Next we'll take the white wire with the pre-attached ring terminal to be the ground for our new seven-pole connector and secure it to the frame. To do this we're going to use a self-tapping screw. Now with our ground wire secured we'll go ahead and wrap up and secure the remaining portion of our wire. Once we do that we'll go ahead and cut off the excess from the zip ties to clean up our install look.This will complete our install of the Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Goose Neck wiring harness, part number 41157 on our 2008 Chevy Silverado.
