Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2004 GMC Safari

Today on our 2004 GMC Safari we'll be installing the Draw-Tite 4-pole Hardwire Kit, part number 18252. This kit also includes the circuit tester.

In this case it's under a small box that is located at the right rear of the vehicle in the same area where the spare tire jack is. To begin with we'll go ahead and open up the rear doors on our vehicle. Next we will locate the wiring harness that we'll need to tie into.

This adapter actually has load resisters on the inside and that will simulate additional loads so that it does not happen and the lights will work on your trailer. This adapter will plug into your factor 7 way on your tow vehicle and allow you to plug in back here either a 4 way or a 5 way connector on a trailer. You'll notice there is 5 plugs and the 4 way, you just eliminate that end one. You always use the ground one, so when you plug in the 4 way you'll just not be using that end plug right there. That should do it for the review on part number TR20141.more

Hopkins Wiring 47549 Review- Video

Hopkins Wiring 47549 Review

Today we're going to review part number 47549. This is the Hopkins Universal 7-Way Blade to the 6-Pole Round Adapter. This adapter will convert the seven way on your towed vehicle down to a six way round connector which will be on your trailer. It does include this nice dust cover that's connected to the adapter. When you're not plugging it into the six way you can put the dust cover on to help protect the terminals. This is impact and corrosion resistant.more

Hidden Hitch Wiring 30104 Review- Video

Hidden Hitch Wiring 30104 Review

Today we're going to review part number 30104. This is the hidden hitch 4-way flat adapter to a 6-way square for Jayco RV's. This adapter is about 31" in length, it uses 18 gauge wires. This adapter would be used to supply the lights on your Jayco RV that has the, most of the Jaycos use a 6 pole square RV, or 6 pole square on them. What you would do is plug this into your 4-way on your tow vehicle and again this would provide you with the ground, with the tail lights circuit and the left turn and brake circuit and the right turn and brake circuit. It would also do the same on this 6-way here, the ground, the tail light, the left turn and brake and the right turn and brake functions and then two of those will be no function at all. Basically if you just plug this into your Jayco RV and plug this into the 4-way on your tow vehicle you'll be ready to go.more

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2012 Lexus RX 350- Video

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2012 Lexus RX 350

Today on this 2012 Lexus RX350, we're going to install part number C57674. This is the adapter 4-pole to 7-pole and 2-pole with test lamps. The first thing we're going to do is take the bracket that comes with the 7-pole connector and attach it to the panel on the bottom here. There's not much really to bolt to, so we're going to run some holes through the plastic and use some fender washers on the inside to help secure it. We'll just go ahead and line it up with the existing form of the plastic, and we'll go ahead and drill a couple of hole. We'll be using a 3/16" drill bit. We're going to need to get behind our panel as well, so we'll go ahead and loosen all the fasteners across the front and one on the side here to give us some working room. There's also one plastic rivet that we have to remove.more

Let's put our new seven pole into place.more

Traile Wiring Harness Installation - 2010 Mercedes-Benz-GL-Class

Today on our 2010 Mercedes GL450, we'll be installing the Tow Ready ModuLite wiring harness with trailer pigtail, part number 119192. To begin our install, we'll first remove the driver and passenger side interior trim panels. Here on the passenger side, we'll simply turn the securing knob, unlocking it, pulling the panel out, and setting it aside. On driver side, we'll turn the knob, remove the door, then we'll need to remove the interior compartment. To do this we'll unlock both fasteners and then pull up and out on the box at the same time releasing it from any other points that secure it. Now on both sides, we can gain access to the manufacturers taillight wiring. Next, we'll need to test the wiring so that we can locate the circuits for our running lights, brake signal, and turn signals as this is considered a 3-wire taillight system where each circuit is independent from each other. To test out lights, we're going to go ahead and remove the connector from the back of the housing.more

Hopkins 7-Way Trailer Connector Installation- Video

Hopkins 7-Way Trailer Connector Installation

Today on our trailer we're going to be installing the Hopkins Endurance 7-way trailer connector for the trailer end with a holder that holds a 7-way, part number HM48500. Let's begin by showing you what the Hopkins 7-way plug looks like. Here's the holder for it. Just simply snap in place like this. What this is for is it will allow you to attach it to the trailer so that the wire's not hanging down low when you're not using it. Gives you a good place to store it. Now on this particular trailer we have a section of wire that has 7 wires in it, so it's a 7-wire cord coming off.more
