Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Wiring 18157 Review

Today we're going to review part number 18157. This is the Draw-Tite 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box designed to fit three inch square tube cross tube hitches. This mounting box includes everything shown here. It comes with the hard ABS plastic box with the strap to attach it to the hitch and four mounting screws to attach the connector to the box. This mounting box is designed to attach to your hitch and gives you a place for you to install your six or seven way trailer connector. It is designed for use with all hitches that have the square three inch cross tube.

It gives a nice, clean appearance for your connector, and it uses corrosion resistant materials. It's a very easy installation. You can use it on new wiring for vehicles or even a vehicle that's pre-wired. It does include these screws to mount the seven or six way to your box here. Basically what you would do is this could mount either to the side, you can see here it measures three inches, so that opening there's three inches. The hitch would have to have a square tube that's three inches.

You can mount it to the side, you can mount it underneath. What you would do is you can put your seven way connector right here, use the screws to attach it to there, and then run your wire right in through here, and then what you would do is put your strap through here and then your strap, you would just connect it and that would attach around your hitch and hold it into place. It gives you a spot for your six or seven way connector. Now, you can also use this, this is all solid here. What's interesting, if you look here there's two little cutouts. What that allows for is if you have a vehicle that's pre-wired and it already has the connector, it might have a seven way like this, for instance, connected with the wire already in there, and you can't get it through that opening what you can end up doing is it tells you you can just take a pair of cutters and right where those two indentations are you can just put the cutters on there, cut right through that, and what that allows you to do is you can push this down, and then what you can do is just put the wiring in there, slide your wiring right through there just like that, and then just close that back up, and then you can take your seven way and attach it just like that. If you have a case where it's a pre-wired unit and you have this type of wiring you could use it even for that application.

That should do it for the review on part number 18157. This is the Draw-Tite 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box for three inch square cross tube hitches. .

I jind that this product decreases the chance on entanglement, with the leveling hitch we have. Plus it eases plugging and unplugging the connector 391538

Worked great on 99 f250 superduty. For the price it seems sturdy, took a minute to install. No brainer here. 327591

The harness, adapter and plug mount was great. I actually have a hitch that is round but was able to use the mount on it anyway by applying a little weatherstripping to the inside and then clamping it on. Came out very nice and maintained the professional/standard look. Was able to save approximately $200 by using your products as opposed to visiting a local install shop. Thanks and will look to you again in the future. Craig J. Utah 235688

Easy ordering and fast shipping. Product was exactly as described. 208860

The products were great but the shipping I was disappointed with. It took 3 days just to package my items and another day to finally be on its way. I am happy with the products and prices but took a little long to get it to me. 192771

Predrilled holes did not line up with my seven way connector. Other than 2 minutes to drill new holes, this was installed with no problems and fit was perfect. 89122

The pictures available on this site made choosing and ordering the right items so much more satisfying. I didn't have to worry about the wrong items coming to me and then modifying them to fit my purposes. If I ever need more trailer supplies (which is very likely), I will definitely come back to etrailer.com for my needs. 78689
