Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Ford F-250

Today on our 2013 Ford Super Duty, we'll be installing the Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Gooseneck wiring harness, part number 41157. To begin our install, we'll first go ahead, get into the pickup bed and locate where we want to mount the new 7-pole. Then, using a pilot bit, we'll go ahead and make a hole, then use our hole saw to drill out the hole for our connector. Now, with the hole drilled out in our bed side, we'll take the wiring harness and feed it from underneath and through the predrilled hole. Included with the install kit will be some dielectric grease. I do recommend to put this on each one of the terminal connections to help prevent corrosion over time. Then we'll take the 7-pole connector and our wiring harness and plug the two together. Now, with our connection made, we'll go ahead and mount the stem pole connector to our bed side using the self tacking screws provided with the install kit. With that completed, we'll move underneath the vehicle and go ahead and take the wiring harness, route it over the frame and down behind the bumper. We'll go ahead and leave the wiring harness there and move to the manufacturer's 7-pole connection underneath the bumper. First we'll need to remove the connector that secures the wiring harness to the top of the hitch.



Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Ford F-250

Today on this 2007 Ford F250 Super Duty, we're going to install part number 41157. This is the Hopkins Endurance stiff-wheel, goose-neck, 90-degree wiring harness with seven-pole plug. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and find a location for our plug. In this case we chose this location right here. Now this is just a personal preference, but usually the lower on the bed is better because you have a further distance between this inside edge of the bed and the outside wall of the bed. Once we find a location we'll go ahead and drill a quarter-inch pilot hole. Then we're going to follow up with two-and-an-eighth-inch hole saw. Now we'll go ahead and work with our wire harness.

Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Wiring Installation - 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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

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





Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Questions and Answers


  • Turn Signals Not Working in 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2002 Ford F-350
  • On a trailer, the turn signals are on the same circuits as the brake lights. On a 7-Way trailer connector they would be the pins in the 9 oclock and 3 oclock positions. If you are not getting turn signal functions on those two pins, but you are getting brake lights, then that does indicate a possible blown fuse. But since you said the fuse is fine there could be a relay somewhere. The easiest way to find the locations of fuses/relays is to use the truck owners manual. On many trucks...

  • Replacement for 7-Way 4-Pole Trailer Connector on 2003 Ford F250
  • The # HM40975 would be a direct fit, in fact it's being used as the OE connector on the newer Ford truck models. You'd just unplug the round US car connector from the rear of your existing trailer connector, install the # HM40975, and plug the US car connector into the back side of the # HM40975. Easy install.

  • Installing 7-Way 4-Pole Trailer Connector # HM40975 on 2005 Ford E350 Cutaway Van Chassis
  • A cutaway van chassis is unlikely to have the wiring harness underneath for the # HM40975 you referenced to plug into. You'll need the # PK11998 pigtail, which you'd hardwire directly to the vehicle. The pigtail wire color codes are as follows: Red - Left Turn and Stop White - Ground Blue - Electric Brakes Green - Right Turn and Stop Black - Battery Brown - Running Lamps Yellow - Backup Lamps A circuit tester like part # 40376 would help you determine which circuit is which...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Truck Bed 7-Way Recommendation for a 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty
  • The Pollak 5th Wheel / Gooseneck T-Connector with 7-Pole # PK11893-11932 is the universal design that virtually all 7-ways on the road use so yes it should work just fine on your 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty. To be certain though you can check out the connectors on your 7-way and compare them to the ones in the picture I attached to see if they match.

  • Troubleshooting Right Turn Stop Signal Not Functioning on a 2000 Ford F350 7-Way
  • The problem is somewhere between the 7-way connector and the wiring of your truck. You can try cleaning the pin on the inside of your 7-way. Corrosion or dirt on the pin can cause the circuit not to function. Even if it doesn't look that dirty try using some fine grit sandpaper to get the pin down to bare metal. Other places to check is the back of the 7-way. There might be corrosion there that needs to be cleaned. Also, check for exposed wire and fix as necessary. Aside from that you...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector With 4-Pole for 2000 Ford F250
  • If your truck has the OEM 7-way, it should have a round connector that plugs directly into the back of it. You can unplug the connector at that point, and then plug it into the 7-way of your choice, like the # 20119 you referred to, or the # HM40975 which is being used as the OEM trailer connector on the new Ford trucks. The square connector you speak of is usually a little further down the line, on the frame rail.

  • Correct Trailer Wiring Harness for 2002 Ford F250 or F350
  • The # 118243 harness you referrred to is compatible with 1999-2001 F250 and F350 models, and is not compatible with a 2002 model, which would explain why it's not working. Part # 20119 is shown as being the proper 7-way for a 2002 Ford F250 or F350. The 20119 would plug into the existing US Car connector under the vehicle, typically located on the driver's side frame rail.

Either of these replacement connectors comes with a mounting bracket and hardware. I have included a video on each connector for you. If you are looking for an exact match to the factory harness though you would need to get one from a Ford dealership.

  • Will the Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness # 118243 Fit a 2002 Ford F350 SD
  • I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready and he said that the Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, # 118243, is for use on the 1999 to 2001 model super duty trucks. This harness may plug into the factory connector, but the pin layout changed between the 2001 and 2002 model years. I read the review by JB350 that you referenced and the harness may very well plug in, but due to the pin configuration, there could be issues with the functions.

  • The fuse blowing is an indication of a short circuit. Check all of the connections and wiring (as much as you can) and look for any dirt, corrosion, bent pins, or exposed copper strands touching bare metal. Repair as needed, if possible. It sounds like your 2002 Ford Super Duty came with a factory installed 4-Way that was later converted to a 7-Way. If not all of the wires for the 7-Way at the bumper are ran you will need to complete that but the lighting functions should still work. If...

  • Troubleshooting Low Brake Output Brake Voltage on a 2007 NU WA HitchHiker 34 5th Wheel
  • It sounds like there is something wrong on the brake output circuit of your trailer. The reason I say that is because you have 12 volts at the connector on your 2008 Ford F350 brake controller but somehow only 3 volts are making it to the brake assemblies. Since the brake assemblies are brand new that eliminates them from being the problem. What I would do is start at the back of the connector with a voltmeter like 7-Function Digital Multimeter # BTMT15 and test the circuit for 12 volts...

  • If you are using the part you referenced, Valley OEM Style 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connectors for Ford # V30607, and the 4-way works but the 7-way does not, the first thing to check is that the round connector that plugs into the back of the 7-way is fully seated and that the locking tabs are engaged. Since the 4-pole has lighting signals we know the vehicle wiring is sending the appropriate signal to the round U.S. car connector that plugs in to the OEM harness. This makes the plug-in...

Use the truck owners manual to find all the locations of the fuses and relays used for the tow package wiring. Checking fuses is easy but to check a relay the easiest thing to do is to place a known working relay in place of a possible bad one. If the function then starts working then you know it was a relay.

There are other connectors with different lengths if you are looking for something that is longer. The 7-1/2 feet of length should be long enough to reach the front of the wheel well but you can measure your 2002 Ford F-350 to be sure.

  • Troubleshooting a Weak Right Stop/Turn Signal Circuit in the Bed of a 2002 Ford Super Duty
  • It very well could be a dirty connection or a short somewhere on the circuit. I would start at the back of the connector in the bed of your truck checking it for corrosion and then trace the circuit back checking for cut or exposed wire and fix as necessary. I do think its most likely corrosion either on the front of the connector, the back of the connector or where it connects to the 7-way at the bumper. I attached an FAQ article on trailer wiring that you might find informative also.

Using the owners manual and/or legend on fuse box lid you can determine if there is another to check. If your truck only came with a 4-Way wiring harness initially then the wire for 12 volt power is probably not run back to the connector. Trace the cord back from the trailer...

The first thing you are going to want to do is make sure all the functions works on the truck side with no trailers connected. Use your tester to test the connector while someone sits in the truck and runs through the lighting functions. If the truck side turn signals are not working then you will want to check the vehicle owners manual for the locations of the fuses and relays related to the tow package wiring....

  • What is the Best Way to Check to See if a Relay is Bad on a 2008 Ford F-250

Use the vehicle owners manual to find the locations of the relays related to the tow package wiring. Before you change out a relay and reconnect the trailer you will want to be sure to determine what caused the problem in the first place. A short on the trailer could have caused this issue and unless it is fixed...

  • Will Fifth-Wheel Wiring Harness # 20110 Work on a Heavy Duty 1997 Ford F-250
  • Fifth-wheel wiring extension # 20110 is only a fit for the Light Duty F-250 models in the 1997 year, so it would not work if your truck is a Heavy Duty model. The correct fit for the Heavy Duty 1997 F-250 models would be part # 20023. Dielectric grease, part # 11755, would be a good addition as well, to lubricate the connection points and protect them from moisture. I have included a link below to an installation video on a similar full-size truck.

  • What do I Need to Operate the Trailer Brakes Behind a 2000 Ford F250 With Factory 7-Way
  • You will need a brake controller in order to send brake power through the 7-Way to the trailer brakes.
