Today on this 2004 Dodge 3500, we are going to install the pre-wired fifth wheel trailer connect that mounts in the pickup bed, part number 51-97-411. Start by looking for a spot to install our assembly connector. We are going to mount ours here, just behind the wheel well in the pickup bed. Using a 1/4 inch bit we will make a pilot hole so that we can use our hole saw bit to drill out a 2 inch hole so that we can mount our connector. Now you can leave your drill bit in the hole, go underneath and check to make sure you have enough clearance to fit your 7 way wiring through. Now we will go ahead and drill it out with our 2 inch hole saw bit.
Now we will take our connection end of our new 7 pole wiring, and we are going to feed it through our 2 inch hole. Now we can go ahead and mount our connector. We will use the self tapping screws provided in the install kit. With our 7 pole mounted in the pickup bed, we are now going to go underneath, route our wiring, and make our connections. Now underneath we can go ahead and route our wiring. I am going to feed it up and over the frame, and then run down the frame to the rear bumper.
We will feed it up over the hitch tube, and then I will use some zip ties to secure my wiring. We are going to go ahead and use a metal band clamp, part number A0500, to secure our wiring. Wrap it around the wire and attach it here to the bed catch channel. With our clamp installed, I am now going to follow the manufacturers wiring, and zip tie it directly to it. Now I need to disconnect the manufacturers wiring harness from the 7 pole connector at the bumper.
We are going to unlock the red locking tab just like this one on the connector and remove it from the 7 pole connector to the bumper. With the manufacturers connector disconnected we can now go ahead and take our pre-wired 7 pole connector and plug it inline with the manufacturers. So we will plug one end to the manufacturers wiring harness, lock it back into place, and the other end will go into the 7 pole connector into the bumper. But before I make that connection, I am going to take some black electrical tape and just tape up the rest of my wiring. With that taped up we will go ahead and make that connection, and then we will use the black duct ties to secure the remaining part of our wiring.
With all of my zip ties installed, I am just going to go back through with a pair of wire cutters, and cut off the extra. And there you have it for our new 7 pole pre-wired fifth wheel-gooseneck pickup bed mounted 7 pole connector by Bargman, part number 51-97-411, on a 2004 Dodge 3500.
All right, today on this 2011 Dodge Ram pickup, 3500 series crew cab, we're going to install part number 41157. This is a Hopkins Endurancefifth wheel wiring harness, with a seven pole connector. OK, to start off our install, we need to find a location for our socket that we're going to install in the bed. Once we have that planned out, we'll go ahead and drill a quarter inch pilot hole Then we'll go back at it with a two inch hole saw OK, once we have our hole made, we'll go ahead and take our wire harness and run it through the hole. Well take the one end with the two connectors and go ahead and push it through the hole, and then let it fall out the bottom, then push the rest of our slack in place. OK, and then we'll save the other end to install into our seven pole connector We'll put some of the supply unintelligible 00:00:49 grease onto the terminals on the inside edge, then snap the two halves together. OK, once we have them together, we can go ahead and put the seven pole connector into the hole. And then we'll go ahead and use the provided hardware to attach it to the bed. Now the hardware is four self-tapping screws and washers. We'll position our seven pole connector, and then install our screws one at a time. We leave them loose until we have them all installed, and then we'll go ahead and tighten them down for good. All right, now go underneath the bed of the truck, and we'll go ahead and route our wire harness towards the bumper and towards the back side of the bumper where pre-existing seven pole connector is. Now we need to go ahead and disconnect the seven pole from the wire harness. We'll push down there's a small tab that we need topush down, and then we can go ahead and separate the connector from the wires. We'll let that go for now, and then we'll go ahead and take our new Hopkins wire harness and we'll get it ready to plug in the two halves. We'll go ahead and add the remainder of the unintelligible00:01:41grease on the terminals, and then just plug the two matching ends together. Again , we want to make sure everything remains snapped, so we know we're secure. OK, then we'll go ahead and take our extra length of wire and go ahead and route them up and out of the way, and secure them with some zip ties. One last thing is the white wire from the ring terminal.We need to ground that to the frame, so we'll go ahead and use a self-tapping screw to do that. In this case, we'll be using a number fourteen self-tapping screw. And with that, that will finish up our install of the Hopkins Endurance fifth wheel ninety degree wiring harness, with the seven pole plug, on our 2011 Dodge Ram pickup, 3500 series truck. .
Today on our 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup we'll be installing the Tow Ready Four Pole Hardware Kit with Insulated Butt connectors, part number 20250. Now this vehicle is already equipped with a manufacturer's four pole connection. But, as we remove the cap, you'll notice that it's severely corroded and the terminals are starting to breakdown. So we're going to go ahead and cut off the old manufacturer's four pole connection, and then we can hardwire in a new four pole lead. Our new four pole will match color for color, except for the ground wire, which will be black on the manufacturer's side and white on the new four pole lead side. To make easier access now that we've got the end cut off, we'll go ahead and remove the push pin that secure the wiring. Next we'll go ahead and remove the wire loom and any protective covering. We just need a little room to work so we can add our butt connectors. Next, we'll strip back each one of the wires. Now with each wire stripped back, we'll go ahead and add the butt connector. With our butt connectors added, we'll now bring in our four pole lead and match color for color with the exception of our ground wire which we will match black to white. Then we'll go ahead and and wrap up this connection point with some black electrical tape to help keep out any dust, dirt, debris, or moisture. Now with our connection point secure, we'll go ahead and reinstall the push pin fastener and route the wiring to the center of the vehicle and to the hitch. Note we'll secure any wiring as necessary with additional black zip ties, and will cut off the excess of the zip tie to clean up our install look. That does complete our install of the Tow Ready Four Pole Hardware Kit with Insulated connectors, part number 20250, on our 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup.
Today on our 2010 Dodge Ram pickup, we'll be installing the Pollak fifth wheel gooseneck T connector, part number PK11893-11932. First, let's go ahead and identity where we'll be mounting our 7-pole. Here on the inside of the bed, just behind the driver side wheel well, is a great location. Now before drilling out the large hole, we'll go ahead and use a smaller bit for a pilot hole, and then double check the location. Next, we'll go ahead and drill it out to the larger size, using our larger hole saw bit as per the instructions. Now with the hole drilled out, we're ready to go ahead and start routing our wire.

Now with the large hole drilled out, well go ahead and feed half of our T-connector through the hole then our other plug followed by the remainder of the wire until our 7-pole mounts flush with the bed. Then using the self-tapping screws provided with our install kit, we can go ahead and secure the 7-pole plug to the bed side. Next well get underneath the vehicle and start routing our wire over to the back of the bumper where the manufacturers wiring meets the bumper. Here at the back of the bumper, well go ahead and disconnect the manufacturers wiring from the back of the 7-pole plug at the bumper.
