Video Transcript for Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring - C56001 Review

Today we will be reviewing part number C56001. This is a Curt Fifth Wheel Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness with a 7-pole connector. It's going to measure ten feet in length. What this does is it's going to provide the seven way connection that you need in your truck bed for hassle free hook up of your fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers. The connector is going to mount in your truck bed, your side wall or tailgate post. It can also mount in your wheel well, and it's also going to retain the factory 7-pole trailer connector at the rear of your truck if you already have that in there. What this does is it actually plugs into the factory wiring, no cutting or splicing of wires is needed. This system actually works as a splice.

So one of the connectors is going to hook into the factory wiring, the other connector is going to hook into the seven-pole, or the connection point, at the back of your vehicle. This is specifically designed for Doge full sized trucks, and again it does measure ten feet in length. The wiring is also insulated, so it's going to really stand up against protection from any kind of damages or nicks that sometimes happen to our wires, and obviously it does require that your truck has a factory tow package. It includes the appropriate mounting hardware. Once you get these connections made you can run this along to the desired location. You can clean up your install look using the included zip ties, and then you can take your bracket and you can actually mount this.

I've already went ahead and plugged the wire into it, it just snaps right in. The screws that you need to mount this to the specific location that you want to mount it to are included. You can see there that you have your connection points, and you're ready to hook up your trailer and get on your way. The wire configuration that we have is the yellow wire indicated reverse lights, the green wire is for your tail lights, brown is going to indicate right turn and break lights. Blue wire is for your electrical breaks, black wire is for the twelve volt battery charge, your red wire is for left turn and break lights, and then your white wire is for your ground wire. That's going to complete today's review of part number C56001, this is the Curt Fifth Wheel Gooseneck Custom Wiring Harness with a 7-pole connector. .

This is my first hitch. I decided to go this route after finding out the dealership wanted over 1500 to install rails hitch and plug. Install was not too aweful bad I did the install in about 4 hours of everything. I took my time so nothing would be screwed up. The install videos where awesome and very discriptive. 349955

For as expected, 10'is a bit long for a short bed truck, just had to coil up the extra and the it up under the bed. Works well though and installation was easy, no cutting wires! 529893

  • Gooseneck & 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually Long Bed
  • We can offer you a choice of several under-bed gooseneck hitches for your 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 dually long bed. You can see all by clicking on the link provided. The one I recommend is the B&W kit # BWGNRK1394. An install video is provided. I suggest this for its outstanding USA-made build quality that is second to none, for its limited lifetime warranty and because this gooseneck allows you to instantly convert the truck to 5th wheel towing by simply dropping in B&W's Companion 5th wheel...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch Between Demco, Husky, Curt, and Reese
  • All four manufacturers, Demco, Husky, Curt, and Reese are great companies that have been in the 5th wheel towing business for a long time. I would have no problem recommending any of them for a towing setup. Since your 1999 Dodge Ram has a 6 foot bed you will need a sliding 5th wheel hitch to give you extra turning clearance for those tight turning situations. The best 5th wheel sliding hitch that we have to offer is from Demco. The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch enables...

  • Reese 5th Wheel Installation Bracket Kit for 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab
  • For a custom 5th wheel installation bracket kit for your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab to install your Reese base rails you can use # RP50140. For hardware to secure the rails to the brackets use part # RP58430. If you need a 5th wheel wiring harness for the truck bed you can use part # C56001.

  • No-Drill 5th Wheel Hitch Installation Kit for 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Long Bed
  • The easiest 5th wheel base rail installation will be with a custom-fit kit. For your 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 long bed we offer the Husky kit # HT31404-686 which does still require some frame drilling for installation but less than universal kits like # RP30035. We do offer other kits that do not require any frame drilling. These are the B&W Underbed Installation Kit # BWGNRK1394-5W that works with their Companion 5th wheel hitch # BWRVK3500-5W. This set-up gives you both goose neck and...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Type and Installation Kit for 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • If the hitch from the 2017 Ram is intended for the factory puck system, such as the B&W # BWRVK3670, then it cannot be installed in a truck with standard 5th wheel base rails. Your 6-foot bed Ram 2500 needs to use a sliding-type 5th wheel hitch like Curt # C16536 in order to have the turning clearance required to avoid the trailer overhang contacting the truck cab. The easiest base rail installation in your 2006 Ram 2500 will be with a custom install kit that requires less drilling....

  • Is a Sidewinder Pin Box Compatible With a B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch?
  • To use any Sidewinder pin box like # RP61452, you will not be able to keep your B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck hitch because it is not made for the torque when turning required for that system. No adapter will solve this. However, there is still a way to allow you to tow a gooseneck trailer using a 5th wheel rail kit. You have a couple options. If you want to keep a clean bed, then you can use the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30074...

  • 5th Wheel Sliding Hitch Compatibility With Gooseneck Underbed Hitch
  • With your current gooseneck hitch, you can use the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter by Bulldog, Draw-Tite and Reese # 9480. The issue is that you don't have a sliding option with that hitch so it would give you very limited turning. An option is to use the Curt X5 5th Wheel Base Rails Adapter for Curt Double Lock Gooseneck Trailer Hitches - 20,000 lbs # C16210 that SHOULD be compatible with your gooseneck hitch. Based on all I can research it looks like it will...

  • Will Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Universal Install Kit Fit a 1998 Dodge Ram Long Bed
  • Yes, the Pro Series 5th wheel trailer hitch with universal installation kit, # PS30128, will fit your 1998 Dodge Ram long bed. I have included a link to the instructions for the universal kit and a video showing an example installation on a similar truck you can use as a guide, though the installation will not be exactly the same. I also recommend adding an in-bed 7-Way trailer connector, # C56001, to make hooking up easier. I have linked a video and the instructions for the wiring as well.

  • Recommended Install Kit for Valley 5th Wheel Hitch on 1998 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Although Valley is not around any longer, we used to carry their products so I can say with confidence that their fifth wheel hitches were compatible with industry standard bed rails constructed by Reese, Curt Husky and others. Reese offers a Universal fifth wheel hitch install kit, part # RP30035 that uses industry standard fifth wheel bed rails that would be compatible with your Valley sliding hitch. This is a similar kit to the Curt # C16200. Since your truck bed is 8 feet long,...

  • For your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel 4x4 pickup you can use Curt Universal Base Rail Kit # C16200 as long as the truck does not have overload brackets. Universal kits cost a little less but they require more drilling and a longer overall installation time. The fastest and easiest 5th wheel base rail installation comes from using a custom-fit kit # C16420-204 that includes custom frame brackets that use existing holes in the frame. This means a lot less drilling. Semi-Custom kit # C16301-200...

  • Will Upgrading To Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies Require Changing Out Hub/Drum Assemblies?
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA will work with your existing hubs. This kit comes with both assemblies and they are labeled for installation on the proper side of your trailer. There is a manual adjustment needed at install and then they will self-adjust following that installation.

  • Installation Brackets for 5th Wheel Hitch to Be Installed in 2007 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Any brand of industry-standard 5th wheel hitch will fit into any brand of industry-standard base rails, but the frame brackets that secure the rails to the truck frame should not be mixed with base rails from another maker since there can be compatibility issues. So in other words, you will want to use brackets from the same maker as your base rails (again, the hitch brand does not matter here).

  • Recommended 20K Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch and Install Kit for 2008 Dodge Ram 6-Foot Bed Mega Cab
  • Reese and Curt both make quality 5th wheel hitches. At a given price point a Curt 5th wheel can tend to include more features than a similar Reese or Pro Series. For example, Curt Q20 Sliding 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16536 features a 360-degree pivoting cushioned head while the Reese # RP30083 is a 4-way pivoting type. The Curt will make hitching easier (thanks to the 360-pivoting head) and deliver a smoother ride (thanks to the cushioning). The Curt Q20 also has a smaller price tag AND...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit for 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • We do have 5th wheel hitch installation kits that include the frame brackets, hardware and hitch base rails. These are industry-standard rails that work with all brands of standard 5th wheel hitch. I recommend the Husky custom install kit # HT31404-686. This kit fits both 6-foot and 8-foot bed models. Drilling is required. There is not a no-drill kit for your truck. For an in-bed wiring harness you can use part # C56001.

  • Replacing Factory 7-Way and In-Bed 7-Way Trailer Connectors on a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500
  • For your 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 with factory 7-Way you can use 5th wheel/gooseneck wiring harness # C56071 for a 7 foot long model or # C56001 for a 10 foot model. For the rear 7-Way you can use 7-Way # PK11893 if the harness on the back of your 7-Way is the standard round US car connector. If it isn't then you would also need # PK11998 and would need to hardwire it in by function by testing the wires on the truck with a circuit tester such as # 40376. The functions of harness # PK11998...

It plugs in line with the factory connectors and provides a second 7-Way connector you can mount in the truck bed (or anywhere that it will reach). If your truck did not come with a factory installed 7-Way let me know what it does have and I can make some recommendations to add a 5th wheel/gooseneck...

  • Where Should King Pin Sit in the Bed of a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 for 5th Wheel Towing
  • Typically the king pin will be located directly above, or slightly forward of the rear axle on any given pickup. If you were to install a universal base rail kit like the Reese # RP30035 on your 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 the (linked) instructions state that the king pin will be about 2" forward of the axle center. I have attached a picture of the instructions that show where you would install the base rails in relation to your truck bed. I recommend going with the Reese single-jaw 5th wheel...

  • Is there a 7-Way Extension that is 12 to 18 Inches Long
  • It will require a little hardwiring but you can use extension # PK11-934. One end plugs into the back of a standard US car connector 7-Way. The other end has blunt cut wires that will need to be spliced into the existing harness you have. Another option would be to cut the wiring harness somewhere and splice in additional wires using # DW04914-1 which is sold by the foot. I recommend 2 feet in case you need some slack so you would enter 2 in the quantity box. I recommend using heat shrink...

The lowest-price option currently is the Curt # C16420-204 which includes the base rails, custom under-bed brackets and hardware. You can refer to the linked video for a complete illustration of the installation process.

If there are standard, above-bed base rails installed on both the 2005 and 2006 Dodge Ram 3500, then this hitch will technically fit either truck. However, since you mentioned that your truck has a shorter, 6 foot bed, it is instead recommended to use a sliding 5th-wheel hitch in order to provide proper clearance when making turns.

  • Best Underbed Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for a 1995 Dodge Ram 2500
  • For an underbed fifth wheel setup confirmed to fit your 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 with an 8 foot bed you would want the B and W Companion hitch setup that consists of part numbers # BWRVK3500-5W for the fifth wheel hitch and then part # BWGNRK1394-5W for the underbed kit. This is the only underbed setup available for your truck, but the great news is that the Companion hitch is often referred to as the best fifth wheel hitch around. You will really like this hitch and it costs less than the...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch and Installation Kit for 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab Pickup
  • The main benefit of a 5th wheel hitch that has a 4-way pivoting head is easier hitching and un-hitching. The ability to pivot in all directions means the head will be better able to shift as required to accept the king pin, and of course to release it too. Ride quality is not so much a benefit of this feature. Since your trailer has a Lippert Turning Point pivoting pin box for improved turning clearance you can use a fixed (non-sliding and non-cushioned) type 5th wheel hitch. For an...

  • Your 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 base rails can transfer to your 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 (because they are in the same generation). You will need to get new custom fit wiring # 51-97-411 (the 1999 custom fit wiring is # C56001) & replacement hardware kit for Draw-Tite and Reese 5th wheel hitches # 58164.

  • Recommended Curt Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2007 Dodge Ram Short Bed
  • To tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2007 Dodge Ram with a 6-1/2 foot bed you will need to install base rails in your truck bed in order to mount a Curt sliding hitch. Base rails come with installation kits and there are two different options for an '07 Dodge Ram, depending on the model of your truck; I will list the kits and you can select the right one. Keep in mind these kits come with both the base rails and frame brackets so you do not need to purchase them separately. - 2007...
