Video Transcript for Pollak 7-Pole RV-Style Trailer Connector Review

Today, you're going to be taking a look at the Pollak mounting bracket and installation hardware for a seven pole RV trailer connector. Part number PK12711U. Our universal mounting bracket is going to allow us to mount up a seven way or a nine way connector on the back of our towed vehicle. The bracket itself is going to be a writing or bracket. So it's going to have that small section where we can either go directly into the bumper or do a no-drill application with an additional bracket that is sold separately.Our mounting bracket is going to include all the hardware necessary to mount up your connector as well as two self tapping screws. If you choose to mount it to the bumper, the bracket itself is going to have a nice epoxy coating on it.

So it's going to resist rust and corrosion. So if you're looking for a way to mount up your seven way or your nine way on the back of your towed vehicle, this is going to be a great solution to get it in a secure spot by your hitch.So now that we've seen what it looks like, let's show you how to get it installed. To mount our bracket up, you have a few different options. It is going to come with a couple self-tapping screws, so you can screw it into the facia, but we're choosing to use this short bracket. So we have a spot right off the hitch that we can mount it up to.

You'll notice that we're going to have two holes on the top of our bracket.And I'm going to take the screws that came from our short bracket. I'll drive the screws down and I'm going to lift my bracket up, lining up the holes. Then we can secure it down with the locking nut. I'm going to come back with a three eight socket. I'm going to tighten up those two nuts.

I'm going to take our wiring and I'm going to either pass this through, or I'll take the plugin, line it up and plug in the back of our seven way. Make sure it clicks into place and then you'll notice that the holes are going to line up on a bracket.So test a flat head screw through the front and then secure it on the back with another locking nut. We'll do that for all four locations and once you have all your hardware in. You can come back with a three eight socket and tighten it up. That'll finish up your look at the Pollak mounting bracket and installation hardware for seven pole RV style trailer connector, part number PK12711U..

The only problem I had was the self tapping screws included with the kit. Before the screws reached the threads the heads broke off. Make sure you have some extra on hand 725721



- PK12711U
by:

This was a great fit with the 7-pole connector that I ordered from etrailer. The installation video for the 7-pole connector explained how to install this piece as well. For my installation, I used longer screws than what came with the part because of the shape of my bumper fascia, but I would order this again if I was installing another connector. 651598

  • Bracket for Mounting 7-Way Install on 2019 Nissan Pathfinder with Curt Hitch
    Since the Curt hitch part # C13309 that fits your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder doesn't have a trailer wiring bracket (none of the hitches for your vehicle do) the best options is to use a bracket # PK12711U attached to the lower rear fascia so that you can easily mount the 7-way kit that also fits your vehicle part # C56357. I attached a picture that shows what the wiring connectors look like at the rear of your vehicle as well.

  • Is Tekonsha 7-Way Compatible With Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Brake Controller in 2014 Toyota Highlander
    Since the Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness - 7-Way # 22119 gives you a complete 7-way on your 2014 Toyota Highlander, it is absolutely compatible with the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # RED44FR. The brake controller adapter that comes with the 7-way will still require you to hardwire in the Tow-Pro Elite, though it is such a good brake controller that is easy to use and doesn't take up space in the cab of your Highlander it is still worth it. The other...

  • What is the Diameter of the Center Hole of the Pollak 7-pole RV Style Trailer Connector Bracket
    The diameter of the center hole on the Pollak # PK12711U is 2 inches. Additionally, the overall height of the bracket is 3-3/4 inches, the width of the bracket, the depth of the bracket is 1-1/4 inches, and the distance between the center mounting holes is 2-1/4 inches. I have included a diagram showing these measurements for your reference.

    The mounting bracket that will work perfectly to mount the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118272 you have installed on your 2016 Ford Explorer is No-Drill Mount # C57202 along with the Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware # PK12711U. These brackets will allow you to very easily mount your 7-way to the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76034 you have on your Explorer.

  • How To Secure Pollak 7-Way Trailer Connector
    In order to secure a standard 7-way trailer connector like those made by Pollak you will need to use the Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware part # PK12711U. This could then be combined with the Curt No-Drill Bracket part # C57202 for a complete drill-free installation.

  • Special Drill Bit for Drilling Into the Bumper of a 1992 Chevy C/K Series Truck
    For hard to drill metal surfaces I recommend a rotabroach bit. We have several of these, see link, but they will probably be too large for for a 7-way mounting bracket. You can also try to use self-tapping screws like # 1172904 instead of drilling. For adding new wiring and brakes, I have included a link to a video that should help. For a 1992 Chevy C/K series truck, I recommend the Tekonsha P2, # 90885. It is one of our most popular controllers because it is easy to set up and easy to use.

  • Recommended 7-Way Connector Bracket for 2015 Nissan Pathfinder
    It sounds like you are looking for the Pollak Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware # PK12711U. You can use the included hardware to install this bracket under your rear bumper and mount the 7-Way connector. You can also add the No-Drill Mount Bracket - Short # 18140 or Long # C57202 to attach the bracket to your trailer hitch without having to drill any holes. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on these products that you can also check out.

  • Mounting Bracket for a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 1999 Ford F-150
    What you can do is use a secondary bracket, like # C57202 for a long one, or # 18140 for a shorter one. These both attach to the cross tube of the trailer hitch. You would then attach the Pollak Mounting Bracket # PK12711U to the end. I have included a link to a video showing how the secondary bracket attaches to the hitch cross tube.

  • Replacement 4-Way and 7-Way Bracket Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Tundra
    If the bracket you are looking for has a round hole in the center what you'd need is the # PK12711U. The other possibility is that you need the bracket part # HM40978. Check out both brackets and let me know if what you need is different from them.

    The Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware - Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Vehicle End # PK12711U comes separate from the bracket you mentioned. For that piece, you will also want the no drill bracket # C57202 or # 18140 depending on the length desired.

  • Mounting Option for 7-Way Wiring Harness on 2005 Nissan Xterra with Curt Class III Trailer Hitch
    I have a mounting option for you, but the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13514, does not have a built in mounting bracket for part # PK12711U. Instead, I recommend using our no-drill mounting bracket, part # C57202, along with the mounting bracket you referenced, # PK12711U. The no-drill bracket will wrap around the round tube crossmember of the hitch to provide a mounting point for the 7-way bracket.

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring Connector Mounting Bracket for a 2011 Nissan Frontier
    I recommend using the Pollak 7-Way Mounting Bracket, # PK12711U, over the Draw-Tite 7-Way Mounting Bracket, # 18138, because the slotted holes allow for fit to many different manufacturers 7-Way trailer connectors. To make the installation easy and avoid drilling, I would recommend a no drill bracket. We have a short model, # 18140, and a long model, # C57202. The short model sticks out 3-3/4 inches and the long model sticks out 6-1/2 inches depending on the location you decide to mount...

  • Mounting Brackets for 7-Way Wiring Kit 118266
    Yes, Mounting Bracket # PK12711U is a correct match for your 7-way # 118266. The bracket allows direct screw-on installation to the underside of a bumper cover or it can be used in conjunction with clamp-on hitch bracket # C57202 which attaches to your hitch tube with a ring clamp; bracket # PK12711U then attaches to the clamp-on bracket. This parts combination avoids the need to drill into the vehicle to mount the 7-way.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2020 Honda Pilot with Full Size Spare
    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2020 Honda Pilot is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75225. I have installed all of the available trailer hitches on this very same vehicle and this was my favorite option due to having a better fit and there being an integrated bracket for the trailer connector. I have attached an install video for you. In regards to spare wheel/tire compatibility, 18" is in regards to the wheel diameter not the overall tire diameter. That said,...

    The Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness w Brake Controller Adapter part # 22551 is specifically designed to be used with a 2018 Dodge Durango that did not come with trailer wiring. The harness offers almost an entirely plug and play installation that will not require you to splice any wires.

  • Installing 7-Way Trailer Connector so It Doesn't Get Destroyed Backing out the Driveway
    Here's what I'd recommend. If you have an exposed portion of the hitch crossbar to work with, use the # 18136 no drill bracket. This fastens to the hitch crossbar using an included pipe clamp. You'll also use the # PK12711U 7-way mounting bracket. I'd begin by mounting the trailer connector to the # PK12711U, so that the mounting flange is at the bottom. Then, attach that to the # 18136 but just leave it finger tight for the moment. Put the # 18136 up against the underside of the hitch...

The trailer hitch has a hidden design so you won't have to look at a bulky cross tube. It also has an integrated mounting bracket for a trailer connector.

Sometimes the factory tow package will include specific things like an additional transmission cooler but from what I could find GM doesn't say that the towing weight ratings for your Traverse are dependent upon their tow package or not.

  • How to Mount a 7-Way Connector on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder with the Curt Hitch # C13309
    If you were to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder then you would need to mount the Curt T-Connector # C56357 directly to your rear bumper fascia using the mounting bracket # PK12711U. To avoid this you can use the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 instead. Since the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76031 does sit below the rear bumper fascia you would be able to use the no-drill mounting bracket # C57202 along with the part # PK12711U. The Curt...

  • Recommended 7-Way Wiring For 2020 Buick Enclave
    I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector part # 118287 which will plug into the OEM harness on the driver's side frame rail and give you a 7-way plug on the back of the Enclave. I have attached a video on a 2019 Chevy Traverse but it will be the same on your Enclave. To mount the plug I recommend No-Drill Mount for Electrical Mounting Bracket - Short part # 18140 with Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware part # PK12711U.

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring Connector Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Highlander

Only thing else you'll want is a mounting bracket to secure the connector and for that you'd want the part # PK12711U.

  • Mounting 7-way Trailer Connector to 2016 Volvo XC90
    You won't need to cut the bumper fascia to install a 7-way. We used a # 18136 no-drill bracket that attaches to the hitch crossbar using a pipe clamp. Since the Draw-Tite # 76194 hitch crossbar is concealed behind the bumper, the # 18136 bracket can be installed to the underside of the hitch crossbar with the L-bracket for the 7-way extending upward at a 90° angle. If the 7-way you'll be using didn't include an L-bracket, you can use # PK12711U. If you're needing a brake controller,...
