Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring HM48625 Review

Today we're gonna take a look at the Hopkins universal mounting bracket for seven-way and six-way trailer connectors. Now this mounting bracket will let you quickly and easily mount your seven-way or six-way connector on your vehicle. The built-in slot right here at the bottom makes it easy if you have any pre-wired connectors. You can just slip the wires through that slot and then mount the connector to the bracket. This is a nice sturdy steel construction, very long-lasting. Has a nice black powder coat finish to it to help resist corrosion.

Now the hardware that's used to mount the connector to the bracket, we do sell that separately and we do list it on this product page of this part number as a related product. But basically what I wanted to show you here, I happen to pull a Hopkins seven-way blade style connector, and you can see that it would go right into the hole there, line your holes up and then put your mounting hardware right through there to hold it into place. And if this connector happened to have the pre-wired connectors that you couldn't take apart, you can just slide the wire with the pre-wired connectors through there and then mount it on there just like that. A few dimensions on this. I'm gonna give you the measurements of the mounting holes on the top part, center to center is right at 2 1/4 inches. On the face of the plate edge to edge is right at 3 3/8 inches. And the height on it is right at 3 7/8 inches. That should do it for the review on the Hopkins universal mounting bracket for the seven-way and six-way trailer connectors..

Didn't realize that Traverse tow wiring kit PN 118271 didn't come with a mounting bracket. Discovered this on a Sunday. Needed a "universal" type like this one. I called eTrailer on Sunday afternoon and Bill went to the warehouse and verified that my Tekonsha 7-way connector would fit on this mounting bracket. It did, and he mailed it to me. Fit's great. 346096

The Plug holder works well. I had to mount it on the opposite side (Right side) of the receiver because if I mounted it on the receiver where the bracket was, I could install the cover over the receiver. But all worked out fine. 792408

Would have been nice to get the bolts nuts and washers with the bracket for the trailer hook up and would have been nice to know that the pins I bought are barely long enough to make it through the mounting bracket required me to bend them to make them fit. 569828

I am very happy with all the products and prices of items I have purchased from etrailer. Item # HM48625 is very well made and easy to use. The slot at the bottom is a excellent addition that makes even easier to use. Unfortunately I doubt that I will be ordering from etrailer in the future due to there practice of blowing up my computer with pop up's and ads. This practice turns a pleasant experience into a negative one. 343676

  • Bracket Needed to Mount T-One Wiring Kit to Draw-Tite Hitch on 2020 Acura MDX
    I went out to the warehouse and verified that the holes used to mount the Hopkins Bracket # HM48625 are compatible both with the T-One Wiring Kit # 118289, and with the mounting bracket on the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75225 that you purchased for your 2020 Acura MDX. The only other thing that you're missing is a ball mount kit (if you don't already have one) and for that I recommend the Kit # 989900 because it includes two ball mounts, one with a 3/4” rise/2” drop and the other with...

  • Mounting Brackets for Trailer Hitch
    We undoubtedly have mounting brackets for your wiring harness, though I'm not certain what vehicle you have and we do not have mounting brackets made specifically for OEM harnesses. However, there are many universal parts such as the Hopkins Universal Mounting Bracket for 7-Way and 6-Way Trailer Connectors # HM48625 or Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat # 18144 which you would use with the No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket # 18140. Or if you cannot use a wrap-around mount you...

  • Dimensions of Hopkins 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket
    The mounting bracket is 3-3/8 inches across and 3-7/8 inches tall. The mounting holes on top of the bracket are 2-1/4 inches apart center on center. The holes to mount the 7-way to the bracket have a few different options. The two round holes on the sides are 2-7/8 inches apart. The top set of the four holes are 1-3/4 inches across and 2-1/2 inches up and down. The other set of holes are 2-1/2 inches across and 1-1/8 inches up and down. Some of the hole spacing is hard to explain...

  • 7-Way Mounting Bracket For 2003 Chevy Avalanche and How to Pick Out Weight Distribution
    That we normally see all 7-way blade connectors are the same size and will connect to each other. The pins are blades though and not round pins correct? Do you have any pictures?

  • Tekonsha 7-Way Wiring Harness vs. Curt 7-Way Wiring Harness for 2018 Honda Pilot
    The difference between the 7-way harnesses available for your 2018 Honda Pilot comes down to quality and reliability. Over the years we have found the Tekonsha brand to be far more reliable than Curt so I strongly recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way Trailer # 118286. This harness also has higher maximum amperage than the Curt which means it offers you better protection against potential shorts. To mount this to the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75225...

  • Is a Relay Required for a Wiring Harness on a 2020 Acura MDX
    While you are correct that a wide variety of trailer wiring harnesses do require the installation of a relay, this is not the case for your 2020 Acura MDX. I recommend going with one of our Tekonsha wiring kits because we have found that their converter boxes tend to be the most reliable. For a 4-Way plug you need the T-One # 118628 but for a 7-Way plug you need the T-One # 118289 for a 7-Way plug. It is worth noting that even though you don't install any relays, you do need to install...

  • Adding 7-Way to 2020 Honda Pilot for Trailer Towing
    We have the T-One Wiring Kit # 118286 from Tekonsha which comes with everything you need to install a fully-functioning 7-Way connector on your 2020 Honda Pilot. Then for a brake controller I highly recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 which installs to the plug under your driver's side dash with the adapter # 3070-P. I have attached an installation video of this wiring kit on a 2020 Pilot and a review video of the P3 for you to check out. If you don't already have a trailer...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2020 Honda Pilot
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2020 Honda Pilot is the Draw-Tite # 75225 because it has a tab that is already attached to the crosstube that you can install a bracket for your wing plug on. If you are needing a 4-Way plug for trailer lights I recommend the T-One # 118760 with the bracket # 18144 but if your trailer has a 7-Way connector then you need the T-One # 118286 with the bracket # HM48625 instead. Attached are some installation videos of these products on recent model...

  • Recommended Mounting Bracket for Curt T-Connector 7-Way on a 2013 Nissan Xterra
    I do have a solution for you but when I went out to the warehouse and tested the Curt T-Connector # C56226 with the 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box # 18159 that you referenced to find that they actually aren't compatible due to the mounting hole locations on the Curt 7-Way. Instead of the Draw-Tite mounting box I recommend going with the Hopkins Universal Mounting Bracket # HM48625, which has a variety of mounting holes that will line up, and the No-Drill Mount Bracket # 18140....

  • Replacement Wiring Harness Bracket for 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with New Curt Hitch
    In order to mount your OEM wiring connectors to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 14211 on your 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD we have the No-Drill Bracket # C57202. This wraps around the crosstube of the trailer hitch and allows you to mount a connector that has a bracket like part # HM48625. If you're also needing a new connector then I recommend using the Hopkins Endurance # HM40975 because it looks great and is actually the OEM replacement for a lot of different pickups.

  • Parts Needed to Safely Tow a Pop Up Camper with a 2016 Kia Sedona
    1. Normally I'd say that your 2016 Kia Sedona would be just fine as long as the pop up has brakes, but since your towing capacity without brakes is only 1,000 lbs it would be a good idea to install one. As far as the warranty is concerned you are protected by the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle...

  • Will Tekonsha All-In-One Wiring Kit Fit on a 2020 Dodge Durango
    Yes, the Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness w Brake Controller Adapter # TK22113 will work for your 2020 Dodge Durango without the factory tow package. This tees in behind your tail lights and then gives you all of the wiring and parts you need for a fully functional 7-Way plug. For a brake controller I really like the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # RED44FR because it is the most versatile brake controller we have and it uses a color-code system to tell you what's going on so you...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness Used To Install Brake Controller On a 2019 Ford Transit T350
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98842 is an excellent option for a 2019 Ford Transit T350. In regards to wiring, the Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness w Brake Controller Adapter part # 22114 is a confirmed fit and what I recommend using. This will work perfectly with the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller part # TK90160. The only other thing you'll need are the mounting brackets for the trailer connector, part # HM48625 and part # C57202 would accomplish...

  • Is Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Recommended for a 2020 Chevy Traverse
    I really like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76184 for your 2020 Chevy Traverse because it not only has a sleek, OEM look (you can actually replace the cover), but it also has a wiring mounting bracket integrated in so if you were to install some wiring like the 4-Way # 118761 or 7-Way # 118287 then you'd have a convenient spot to attach it using a mounting bracket like part # 18144 or # HM48625. None of the other trailer hitches available for your Traverse have this...

  • Can Curt Echo be Permanently Mounted on Trailer Tongue
    I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that the Echo # C51180 should not be permanently installed on the trailer frame. Even though it can withstand the elements it isn't meant to be left out when not in use. To mount the 7-Way on your Subaru Outback Wagon so that the Echo can be used I recommend using the 7-Way Mounting Bracket # HM48625 and then a No-Drill bracket like part # 18136 or # 18140 to keep from drilling into your fascia or trailer hitch.

  • 7-Way Mounting Bracket Recommendation for Use with Curt Trailer Hitch C15810
    The Curt hitch part # C15810 does not have a bracket built into it for mounting trailer wiring. Since your truck has a 7-way what you'd want is a 7-way mounting bracket like part # HM48625 which will attach to the bumper of your truck and allow your 7-way to attach to it. Don't install this on the hitch though as you shouldn't ever drill into the hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2017 Volvo XC90 R-Design and Mounting Bracket for Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector
    I did some checking at the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76194 is listed as a fit for all styles of the 2017 Volvo XC90 so that would include the R-Design. Like you said there is some fascia trimming required. If you do not want any contact between the fascia and the hitch receiver then you would just need to trim slightly more above the receiver (if there is contact). From what I could find on Volvo part 31373661 is that it is listed for a 2016 XC90 and not a 2017 so I do recommend verifying...

  • Mounting Bracket for 7-Way on 1997 Ford F-350
    The Pollak Bracket for Single-Pole Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11771 is only a fit for certain Pollak sockets and is not designed specifically to fit any year, make or model of truck. What I recommend is the Hopkins Universal Mounting Bracket for 7-Way and 6-Way Trailer Connectors # HM48625 which is going to be a fit for 7-way and 6-ways connectors. I have added a link to a video review of the Hopkins for you to check out.

  • Curt Echo Wireless Brake Controller Compatibility with 2016 Thor Palazzo and Trailer Side Mount
    The Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller - Wireless # C51180 can be hard mounted to the trailer but it cannot have any flop or movement of the unit because it is inertia based and needs to be able to find the consistent point to monitor movement from. The direction of the controller isn't an issue so if mounted to the side frame at an angle is okay. You can use an extension like the Curt Universal 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 7-Way Extension - 7' Long # C56080 which can be shortened or coiled...

  • Brake Controller And Wiring For A 2016 Ford F-150 With A Factory Four Pole Wiring Harness
    To add a brake controller to your 2016 Ford F-150 with the factory 4 pole, I recommend the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector Item # C56413. It is a simple plug in wiring harness. I also recommend adding a No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long Item # 18136 and a Hopkins Universal Mounting Bracket for 7-Way and 6-Way Trailer Connectors Item # HM48625 to give your 7 pole a more permanent mounting location. These are no drill brackets. The long bracket attaches to...

  • Hitch Capacity Clarification for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver #75725
    Hitch Classification has more to do with organization than really anything else. The important thing in this case is the towing capacity of the hitch. Which the part # 75725 certainly has capacities that are in the Class IV range at 6,000 lb total trailer capacity and 600 lbs tongue weight. It does have this rating with it's current attachment points which you can see in the picture I attached. For a 7-way mounting bracket we have the part # HM48625 which would work well. It is designed...

    The mounting bracket for Hopkins trailer connector # HM48470 has the top mounting holes spaced 2-1/4 inches apart on center. It is 3-3/8 inches wide and 3-7/8 inches tall. It is very similar to # HM48625 though without as many mounting holes for the connector as # HM48625.

  • Trailer Wiring Mounting Bracket and Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    If you wanted to use the mounting bracket part # C92CR on the hitch you have installed on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon you would also need the bracket part # C57202 so that you wouldn't have to do any drilling. If you instead want a 7-way bracket then I recommend # HM48625. The # C57202 wraps around the hitch tube to provide a mounting bracket for the # C92CR or # HM48625. The hitch I would use on your vehicle would be the Draw-Tite part # 75673 because it is a Class III hitch...
