Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Express van, we'll be install the Hopkins Multi-Tow 7-way and 4-way trailer connector for vans with factory 7-way, part number 30955. Now this adapter here will allow us to hook up to 7-way trailers, so we will be able to use trailer brakes, reverse lights, everything on our trailer that it may have. We also have our standard 4 pole flat here for when we're towing trailers that have less basic features, and just have standard running lights, and turn signals, and brake lights. We have these nice dust covers to help keep our connectors free of moisture, dirt, and corrosion. Now that we've gone over some of the features of our Hopkins connector here, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. We can grab our factory wiring which is tucked up under the frame a little bit on the left side of the vehicle, and pull it on down. Normally, there's supposed to be a protective cover over here that you remove before you make your connection, but our van had already had a tow package on it at some point in time, and it was removed before the new owner got it. Now we'll drop our wiring through the included bracket like so. We'll line it up in position, and we're going to take a paint marker here, and mark where our holes are going to be in our bumper, where we're going to secure this to, first.

Hopkins 4 Pole to 6 Pole and 4 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter Review
Today on this 2008 Chevrolet Express we are going to install part number 37175 from Hopkins. What this is is a 4-pole to 6-pole and 4-pole adapter. It will install on the existing 4-pole that is on the vehicle and convert it. The first thing we are going to do is tidy up the wires. We are just going to use some electric tape to secure everything together. While we are at it, we will go ahead and show you the functions of the wires. First off we will cover the function of the wires. This is the 4-pole itself and this will plug in to the 4-pole that is already existing on the vehicle. The white wire is the ground and that will get connected to the frame. And then we have the red and blue wires. Traditionally, blue is for brakes. However, on this particular 6-pole, the blue wire is ran to the center pin. So a lot of times the outside pin is going to be for brakes. It just depends on how your trailer is wired up. The red wire here is typically used for a hot lead. However, this is run to the outside pin. So you can actually use either one of these for the hot lead for 12 volts or brake lead, depending on how your trailer is wired up. On this install, we are actually not going to be using these. We are just going to use the 6-pole for lights only. 1:09
