Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Wiring 118137 Review

Today we're going to review part number 118137. This is the draw type mounting bracket for four, five and six-way round vehicle and trailer connectors. Basically, what you would do with this is you'd mount . you can see the mounting holes right here. You can mount your four, five or six-way round connector right in here and then to attach it to the vehicle. It comes with mounting hardware.

You can use the two self tapping screws which you're going to install right there and attach the bracket directly to your vehicle. The other option we do offer and it also comes with four screws and nuts and then with that option, you can do a no drill option. With that option, you do need to purchase a separate piece, either the no drill long bracket which we sell separately. It's part number 18136 or the no drill sharp bracket, part number 18140. We sell those on our website. They are listed on the product page for this part number as a related product.

With those brackets, you can attach the bracket using a screw clamp to your hitch and then using these nuts and screws, you can attach this to the bracket itself. There's no drilling needed or anything like that. It's a no drill option. But that should do it for the review on part number 118137, the draw type mounting bracket for four, five and six-way round vehicle and trailer connectors. .

Mounting Bracket for 4, 5 and 6 Way Connectors - 118137

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (59 Customer Reviews)

Order for wiring, round plug, and plug mounting bracket delivered very quickly and is exactly what I needed. Mounting bracket is made of substantial metal, not some thin sheet metal. Have bought from etrailer.com in the past and always been well satisfied with their products and service. 35650

This was used on a 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara. It is an excellent quality product. It seamlessly connected to the 4-pole knockout adapter and is meant to work for the 4, 5, & 6 way connectors. I also used dielectric grease together with electrical tape for a nice clean mount that should be rather rust & corrosion resistant. The only drilling I did was to mount the 4, 5, 6 way connector to the bottom of the hitch bar. I ended up using different self-tapping screws than the cheap ones provided because I sheared one off while tightening it. All in all though, it all fit together beautifully. Great products! 38983

Looks like a well made adapter, purchased with bracket 118137. Where they snap together is very loose and may pull out without some sort of retainer (tape or c clips) to hold it in place. Anyway it beats having dangling wires/plugs hanging from hitch. Should work well. 283101

I purchased this bracket to mount the 4-pole knock-out adapter (30601). The hole in the bracket is slightly over-sized so I had to get a little creative with electrical tape to snug up the fit of the adapter. It now looks great on the back of my black Dodge Dakota. 53914

The mounting bracket was the perfect size and attached in just a few minutes with the self drilling metal screws. The 4 pole round adapter fit well and was easy to snap into place. Very happy with quality of the bracket. The shipment arrived 3 days earlier than expected, very nice. Thank you George and etrailer team 194454

Fitment for a 6-pin round receptacle was perfect. Only wish the screws to hold it on the hitch were not self tapping. For trailering, I would prefer a bolt, lock washer, and a nut to hold this to the hitch body. The extension accessory that you can buy extra was not applicable on a motorcycle hitch/receiver. 180941

I purchased this bracket to use with the Adapter 4 Pole to 6 Pole - 30637. the bracket fit onto my trailer hitch perfectly and the only issue I had was that the whole where the six pin adapter mounts was slightly too small to push the four pin flat connector through. I handed up using a Dremel tool to create another notch opposite the existing notch at the top of the hole in the bracket and everything worked out great. 236463

Through a mix up on the web page listing, I ordered 2 different plugs. When we discovered the mix-up, we decided to purchase the Connectors locally, where we could be guaranteed that they would work together. The UPS. facility close to their facility, and after telling UPS of the loss, they located the package, and refunded the funds back onto my card. They emailed me telling me the returned merchandise was received, and how much the refund would be. 441458

  • What Are The Best Parts To Flat-Tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • In order to flat-tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with all four wheels on the ground behind a motorhome you are going to need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tail light wiring harness, supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. There may also be a few other smaller components that are needed depending on options the vehicle is equipped with. For a tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-676. The Nighthawk is one of the...

I have two suggestions for how to attach the 4-pole connector to the vehicle. You'll need a long no-drill bracket, part # C57202, as well as the # 18144 mounting bracket. The 4-pole will push into the mounting bracket from behind. Your other option would be to use the same # 18136 bracket, along with the # 118137 bracket. You'd then use a # 30601 knockout adapter.

  • Will the No-Drill Trailer Wiring Harness Mounting Bracket Fit a Round Tube Trailer Hitch

There are different additional mounts you can use depending on the type of connector you have. For a 4-Way flat use # 18144 5-Way flat use # tr20046 7-Way Blade Style use # 18138 with long bracket # C57202 4, 5, or 6-Way round use # 118137

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 GMC Terrain
  • In order to convert the 4-way trailer connector on your 2014 Thor ACE 29.2 to a 6-way trailer connector you would want to use the Mighty Cord Trailer Connector Adapter part # A10-6034VP. The adapter plugs into the 4-way you have on your RV and will require you to hardwire in 3 additional wires. The white wire is for the ground and will need to be attached to a clean bare metal surface. The black wire will then need to be ran to the battery with an in-line fuse holder such as part # SWC9539...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Wiring and Towing Accessories For 2009 Nissan Murano
  • I can recommend a hitch, wiring, and additional accessories that you will need to complete your towing setup on your 2009 Nissan Murano, but all of our hitches and wiring are sold separately. The hitch you referred to, the Draw-Tite # 75647 is a fit for your Murano. For wiring, you will need Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 118653 to have a 4-way connector at the rear of your vehicle. If the trailer in question doesn't have brakes, you'd just need a simple adapter # 37185....

  • Mounting Bracket for Tow Ready 4-Way to 6-Way Trailer Connector Adapter, 1998 Lincoln Continental
  • There can be some bracket/connector compatibility issues if the two components are of different manufacturers. Some sockets will not physically fit inside of some brackets. For the Tow Ready adapter # 30637 (20320) you would use bracket # 118137, but you would not attach it directly to the trailer hitch. What you would do is use short bracket # 18140 or long bracket # C57202, attach it to the hitch and then attach bracket 118137. Drilling into the hitch will void its warranty and can...

  • Mounting Options for 4-Pole Connector on 2010 Mazda CX-9
  • I have just returned from the warehouse and have looked at the actual hitch. The hitch does feature the mounting plate and is exactly as shown in the photo. The easiest method would be to keep the connector in the cargo area until needed. When you are towing, you can run the wire out the rear door and close the door on it. The weatherstripping around the rear door is thick enough that the wires will not be damaged, as long as you avoid the area around the latch. This method provides...

It's designed to mount in a 6-way round bracket like the part # 118137 which can easily be mounted on either a trailer or tow vehicle.

The socket would need to be tapped into the wires feeding your 6-way. We offer 4 conductor wire, part # 16-4B-1 that is sold by the foot, you would probably want at least two feet. The wire is conveniently color coded, and would attach to the 4-pole socket as follows: Attach the brown wire to the # 2 terminal. Terminal # 1 would be grounded to...

Cut off your 4-Way Round and the 4-Way flat on this adapter and then splice the wires together function for function.
