Today on our 2012 Ford F-350, well be installing the Pollak 5th Wheel Gooseneck T-Connector 7-Pole, part number PK11893-11932. Now to begin our installation, at the factory 7-pole, well need to unplug the connector. Well push the gray lock tab back and remove it from the factory 7-pole. Well take the T-connector from the Pollak Gooseneck Harness and plug one side into the connector and the other into the factory 7-pole. With those connections made, well route the wire up through the drivers side rear of the bed where well mount our bed 7-pole. We can then move up into the bed of the truck where well find a suitable location here on the drivers side rear of the bed, and after finding that suitable location, well use a center punch to start a hole.
We can then drill a 1/4-inch pilot hole and using a 2-inch hole saw, well cut a hole on the inside wall of our bed. With our 2-inch hole cut, well bring the wiring harness up to our hole here in the bed. Well make our wire connections, placing the red wire which would be the left turn brake signal in the number one slot, placing the white wire which would be our ground in the number two slot, placing our blue wire which would be our electric brakes in the number three spot, placing our green wire which would be our right turn brake signal in the number four spot, placing our yellow wire which would be the reverse signal in the number seven spot. Well place the black wire into the number five spot and the brown wire which would be our tail lights in the number six spot. After connecting the wires to the connector, well put the blue insert in which will hold the wires in place.
And with that done, we can plug it in to our new 7-pole. Well then backfeed the wires through the hole on this side of the bed and using self-tapping screws, we can secure our new 7-pole to the side of our bed. We can then move back underneath the truck where well secure our wire, which will complete our installation of the Pollak 5th Wheel Gooseneck T-Connector with 7-pole, part number PK11893-11932, on our 2012 Ford F-350.
Today on our 1999 Ford F250, we will install the tow ready custom fit wiring harness, part number 118243. Before we can install the new pole and harness, we will need to remove the old and the manufacture. Theres a bolt here securing the bracket, we will remove first and then we will cut the zip tie and remove the wire connector, pressing on the locking tab and remove it from the manufactures wiring. Now we are ready to go ahead and install the new bracket hardware. Before we begin installing the wiring harness, we will need to install the bracket, one to attach to the hitch, and another to attach to the seven pole. The seven pole mounting bracket by Pollak, part number PK12711U will attach to the Draw-Tite no drill mounting bracket, part number 18136.
Today on this 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty we are going to install part number 20031 from Tow Ready, this is their 7-way adapter upgrade harness. What this will do is upgrade this 4-pole harness that is on the back of the vehicle right now and run it up to the bed since this truck is going to be a dedicated gooseneck truck. We are going to peel back the bed liner to see where we can drill through the bed. It is a good idea to drill through one of these parts here that is raised so it has maximum room for the connector once it is installed in the bed. This one is a little close to the tie down assembly and this one has got a tint in it so we will go with the third one over and use that to drill into. 00:38
Today on this 2002 Ford F-250 we are going to install part number 20110 from Tow Ready. This is Tow Readys fifth wheel or gooseneck 7 way tow harness. Basically what this does is act as an extension of your factory 7 way that is at the bumper of the vehicle, gets routed up underneath the vehicle to the side of the bed of the truck. This part is the 7-pole itself, it gets installed on the side of the bed. We are going to start off by making our hole in the side of the bed. :24
