Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford Ranger- Video

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford Ranger

Here on this 2008 Ford Ranger, we'll go ahead and review and install part number 18252, the Draw Tite 4-Pole Hardwire Kit with a circuit tester. This is what it looks like when it's installed on our Ranger truck. This wire harness will allow you to replace the 4-Pole connector that's pre-existing on this truck like we did here, or you can use this on a vehicle that does not have a 4-pole wire harness at all. One of the best reasons to have this installed on your truck is is that it replaces something that's already corroded up, or in this case here, the 4-pole wire harness is actually from the factory, located behind and underneath and a little bit hard to get to. You can use this to extend it and pull it out and make it a little easier to work with and hook up to your trailer. Our part number includes the wire harness here, of course. It also comes with the quick splice connectors and a circuit tester to help identify the functions of the wires. We'll cover those next in our install. First off, this is our 4-pole flat wire harness right here, entire length of the wire is going to be 72 inches. These are our quick splice connectors. more

Hopkins Endurance 7-Way Trailer Wiring Installation - 2015 GMC Sierra 3500

Today our 2015 GMC Sierra 3500, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Hopkins Endurance Quick Install 7-way Trailer Connector, part number HM47210. If your vehicle is equipped with the fifth-wheel towing package, it will probably have a pigtail that looks similar to this. This is a factory pigtail, and we're going to be using our universal pigtail to hook up to it. We aren't going to have a long enough ground to connect that to the frame, so we'll go ahead and connect that to the ground that's provided in the factory hookup. We'll go ahead and trim off the ground to the same length as the other wires and then we'll strip back our wires. The first 2 wires we're going to strip back is going to be that ground and the power. We'll first hook up the ground wire and then we'll hook up the power wire, that way we don't have to worry about disconnecting the battery. We will not go ahead and splice our wires together with the assistance of the DECA heat-shrink butt connectors, part number DW05745-10. more

Today, we are going to review and install the upgraded circuit protected taillight converter, part number 119178. All right, this is a very simple device. This does use a power from the lights to power the trailer or towed vehicle. You want to double check with your towing vehicle to make sure it has enough power in the wire harness to supply a trailer as well. Typically, you'd find this being installed in some cars, or possibly some trucks, as well, that have a separate break signal on their wire harnesses. However, for our install, we are actually going to do something a little different and have a little fun with it. more
