I am having a problem with the install of the three Curt trailer components I purchased. I intentionally bought all of the same brand assuming that they would work together. The problem is that the Curt wiring harness (part# C55774) is too long and rigid. When the 7-pin connector is installed in the bracket that comes with it, it measure 5 inches until the black wire protective sleeve bends (to go under the hitch receiver frame). The no-drill bracket (part# C57202) is supposed to attach the harness bracket to the hitch. But it is only 6.5" long, and the hitch tube is 3" wide. So with the bracket attached to the hitch, there is only 3.5" of space left to mount the harness bracket so that the screw holes line up. I am disappointed that this is the case, especially as I called etrailer to check that the parts I was ordering would work together. It looks like I will have to discard C57202 and drill two holes into the bottom of the hitch and mount the harness bracket directly. This is what I wanted to avoid - having to drill holes.


Comments
The 7-way bracket that comes with the wiring harness part # C55774 is designed to be installed with the wiring harness bracket hanging below the no drill bracket part # C57202. Since you are worried about the loose wiring I would recommend using some wire loom such as part # 459075-1 to protect your wiring and zip tie any slack with zip ties part # DW05726-25. I know this is not the option you wanted but I feel it is better than drilling into the hitch.

Went together without any problems, I pre-assembled the two brackets ( 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket - Long - C57202 and the Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Vehicle End - PK12711U) then crawled under and put the clamp around the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2" that I bought along with this purchase and snapped in my existing 7 way and it was all set up. Very sturdy, though I was concerned with how stable it would when I purchased it. Turns out it is really solid, very happy with the setup. The hitch is a really beefy, so I'm quite pleased with it as well. I did enlist the help of a friend to get it up into place, which I think was the easiest path. If one had to, you could do it alone, but so much easier with a couple of extra hands. All in all, probably took 2 hours for the complete install. I had a standard OEM hitch that I had used to attach a 9000 lbs pull capacity winch to pull up trees on my property, consequently, it stretched/hogged out my 5/8" pin hole, so every time I stopped or started with a trailer, it would slap around. Turns out the OEM hitch is rated for 7500 lbs, this Curt Hitch is rated at 16,000, so I should have no future problems. I'm happy with the setup. I expected that Curt would have engineered a better way to attach the 7 way when they designed the Hitch, I expected better from them.

The Curt No-Drill Bracket worked absolutely perfect for my Drawtite hitch on my 2016 Subaru Outback. Super easy installation and the hose clamp worked a lot better and tighter than I expected it to. I would highly recommend this product if you are wanting to mount your wire harness to your hitch!

Fit was perfect, I bet the bracket in 2 places to make it a very snug fit against the bumper, all parts fit perfect with the minor adjustments, sorry I can't do pictures, but I've put hitches and accessories on other vehicles, I like to make them like I knew what I was doing!

Worked well, easy to install. Only complaint is that there is no way to turn off test LED's when not trailering. Seems like it would have been simple enough for manufacturer to include on/off switch to deal with this.

I am ‘five star satisfied’ with the products and service I have received from etrailer. Parts are high quality, unlike merchandise I I’ve purchased elsewhere. The customer service is high quality, again unlike others I’ve dealt with. Specifically, I have dealt with Danielle twice and she was fantastic. Pleasant, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. etrailer is lucky to have her on their team.

I was surprised at how sturdy this installation is. etrailer sure helped me out along the way with this installation. Special thanks to Alex J for his help on several occasions to help me get the right hitch and accessories for my new 2021 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy.

Great product, works as expected, and easy to install thanks to video provided. Gave it 4 stars vs 5 as clamp provided for trailer mounting bracket was too short. This was after confirming size with representative over the phone. Short bracket and long bracket offer the same 4-inch strap to secure onto hitch. My trailer hitch measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches, ended up securing long plate with large tie strap. Also hardware supplied to fasten bracket should be stainless steel but that's an easy upgrade to complete.

This is a nice bracket , but be advised if using with an F250 in combination with an EZ Connector install , the bracket might not be long enough to extend from the hitch . Perhaps this isn't a problem with smaller hitch bars , but the F250 is a sizable piece of metal that doesn't allow enough remaining length to install the EZ bracket correctly ( receiver end doesn't fit ) .

We made a special 5 hour drive to etrailer, and etrailer did (Fantastic) installation work on this part as well as installing the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate-4420-1, with Removable Arms, Wiring-RM-152-98146-7, Braking System-SM99251, Tow Bar-RM-522, Safety Cables-RM-645, and Brake Lite Relay-RM-88400 Kit on our 2011 Ford Fusion. We absolutely love this system. Ease of connectability and reliability is great. etrailer has stood tall on complete customer satisfaction and has prided themselves on doing things the right way the first time. We have a 2016 Honda Accord Touring that we are considering as a future tow vehicle, etrailer will be a clear choice. We recommend them with confidence. Thank you everyone at etrailer for great Communication, Customer Satisfaction, Service and product reliability!

  • Is the Curt No-Drill Mounting Bracket C57202 the Same as the Tow Ready Version
    The Tow Ready Long No-Drill mounting bracket 18136 has been discontinued but the Curt # C57202 that you referenced is essentially the same thing. It will allow you to install a mounting bracket for your vehicle-side connector without having to drill into your trailer hitch receiver.

    The Curt No-Drill Bracket for 6 -Way or 7-Way round Trailer Connectors, # C57202, would be your best option to mount to a round tube trailer hitch. This bracket uses a hose clamp to allow you to mount the round tube of your trailer hitch.

    On 7-Way mounting bracket # 18138, the distance from the large center hole up to where the bracket bends is 1-3/16 inches. All of the similar brackets, see link to the right, are going to have the same or similar measurement but none as much as 2-1/2 inches. You may be able to modify (bend) long bracket # C57202 to achieve the distance you need.

  • Which No-Drill Bracket to Install # 37185 on Class III Receiver for 2010 Ford F150
    You are correct, the Curt Class III receiver you mentioned, part # 13368 does not feature a mounting bracket welded to it. Over the years, we have found that the long bracket, part # C57202 works better with the thicker tubing used on a Class III hitch, while the short bracket you referred to works better on a Class I or II hitch. The long bracket will allow more clearance at the rear for the wiring to clear. The # 37185 includes the bracket that will allow the 7-way adapter to attach...

  • Where to Store the 4-Pole Connector on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma
    A four-pole connector is the connector that gets connected to the trailer wiring from the tow vehicle. It is called a 4-pole connector because the connector has 4 poles that carry 4 different tail light circuits. Most people will store the 4-pole connector at the rear of there vehicle near the hitch. Check out the picture I attached. What I would recommend you do is get a 4-pole bracket like our No-Drill Mount Bracket # C57202 and route the 4-pole through that. Using this bracket will...

The wiring portion of the Curt T-Connector measures 15-3/4" long so you may want to measure from the factory 7-way port to the mounting bracket on your hitch to see if you have enough length.

  • 7-Way Mounting Bracket for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
    Due to the limited space available in the cut out area around the receiver on your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 will not be a fit. Your best option is to use bracket # C57202 around the hitch to the left of the receiver and use the bracket you have that is currently holding the 7-Way to attach the 7-Way in that location. That will be a much cleaner look and give you better ground clearance than your existing set up.

  • Can the 4-Way on Trailer Wiring Harness 118526 be Routed to the Outside on a 2013 Kia Sportage
    If you look at the video I have linked showing a typical installation of the wiring harness # 118526, at about the 3:50 minute mark our installer begins running the wiring through a hole and out to the bottom of the vehicle. Normally the 4-Way stays inside the cargo area but if you wanted to you could try to run the 4-Way through this same hole. It may require additional sealant to keep out fumes. Then you could use mounting brackets # 18144 and # C57202 to secure the 4-Way to the hitch.

Most likely you will have to enlarge the opening if present or cut the wiring leading to the 4-Way and splice it back together after routing it through the opening. You will need to seal up the opening with silicone so fumes and moisture cannot get in. If you cannot find a grommet...

    It's not recommended to drill holes into the hitch crossbar, as it would weaken the hitch to an unknown degree which would be unsafe.

The bracket included with the # ETBC7 would bolt directly to the # C57202. I'll link you to a video showing how the bracket works.
