Chevrolet Silverado Wiring



Installation of the Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness


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.

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2005 Chevrolet Silverado crew cab, we're going to install part number 30955. This is a replacement multi-tow 7-way and 4-way trailer connector. We're going to replace the original 7-pole connector That came with the vehicle. This is how it came to us, so you can see that the connector has seen better days. To remove our 7-pole connector, there's a tab right here that we push down and pull out. Sometimes there may be a little gray tab or a lock that fits around this.



Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on this 2013 Chevrolet Silverado CrewCab, we're going to install part number 54701-003. This is a 5th-wheel and gooseneck 90-degree wiring harness with 7-pole plug. The first thing we need to do is find a location for it. This is largely personal preference. You can mount it pretty much anywhere in this area right here up towards the front of the truck as well. The 90-degree angle here makes it a little bit shorter than most normal hard wired connections, so it gives it more flexibility as you put it in a narrow spot if you'd like. In this case, we'll put it next to the tailgate area. Here's your tailgate.



Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2013 Chevy Silverado we'll be installing the Draw-Tite 5th Wheel Gooseneck Wiring Harness with seven blade connector, part number 20110. To begin our install we'll first go ahead and locate where we'll be mounting our new seven blade connector. Because on this application we have a storage box on the driver's side, we're going to put our seven blade connector here on the passenger's side. For this application we're going to mount it here above the cargo hook at the recess of the pickup bed. To mount it we'll need to drill out a two inch hole. We'll make our pilot hole first and then we'll take our pole saw bit and drill out the larger two inch hole.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Silverado

Today in our 2013 Chevy Silverado, well be installing the Hopkins Endurance 6-Pole Trailer Connector Socket part number HM48420. This will be in conjunction with the Pollak 5th Wheel and Goose Neck Trailer Connector Wiring Harness part number PK11932. To begin our install, well take our Hopkins 6-Pole and make sure we have a hole saw large enough so that the 6-Pole can be mounted in our bedside. Were going to mount it about right here, so well go ahead and take our hole saw and drill a hole in the bed liner and side. Now we can take our wiring harness and feed it from underneath up and out the free drilled hole. Once we feed it through, well go ahead and pull it out so we can work with the end. Typically we would install a seven blade end that would connect to this wiring harness, but because we need a 6-pole trailer connector to connect to our trailer end, were going to go ahead and remove each one of these connectors.
