Video Transcript for Demco Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring - DM8555002 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Demco fifth wheel or gooseneck 90-degree wiring harness. This is designed as a universal wiring harness, so that way, it's going to be able to fit many current-model trucks. This is going to provide a 7-way, blade-style connector in the bed of your truck for hassle-free hook-up of your fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer. It also retains the use of the factory 7-pole connector at the back of your truck. Now, this connector can be mounted in the truck bed, sidewall, tailgate post, or wheel well with the included hardware. This does require a 2-inch diameter hole to be drilled in order for it to fit into, and it's got the 4 mounting locations on it that will accept the included hardware for an easy installation. Now, if your vehicle has a bed liner, it will need to be notched, or you could use a longer set of screws and mount directly into the bed liner and body panel.

If you have a spray-in bed liner, then you don't have to worry about anything at all; you should be good just for a simple, basic installation. Now, the wiring harness is going to measure 10 feet long. It's insulated. It's easily going to reach from the rear bumper to the truck bed. It's also going to include your nylon ties to secure the wiring harness up and out of the way. This is designed to plug into the factory wiring harness, no cutting or splicing needed; just make your 2 connections at the wiring harness at the rear of the vehicle, run your wire to where it needs to go, taking the 90-degree portion up to the bed of the truck.

Determine your location, make sure you got your hole drilled. Then these 2 pieces basically just click together, and then you can go ahead and fully install the connector where it needs to be. A really nice design, very easy to use. The unit's going to offer enhanced weather-proofing with corrosion-resistant terminals and rubber-coated copper wiring. Now, this does require that your vehicle has a factory tow package. Here on the connector, the lid has a nice design, easily opens up so you can make your connection.

Then on the underside, it's going to have like a rubber grommet. That way, when the lid is closed, it's really going to prevent moisture or dirt and grime from getting into the connection points. The unit's constructed of an extremely durable ABS plastic construction. One of the things I want to mention is that on some vehicles, you may need to add a fuse or relay to complete all the functions going to the 7-way. Those items are not included, so keep that in mind. That's going to do it for today's look at the Demco fifth wheel or gooseneck 90-degree wiring harness measuring 10 feet long.

directions are miss leading . 2" hole isn't big enough as another tab has been added which makes swinging the plug thru the hole impossible . I have a dremel tool at home and ground a tab area for the tab to go thru and was easy as pie then . Plug hook up easy and all was good after getting it thru the hole. 601859

  • The Forest River Sabre series of 5th wheel trailers ranges in unloaded weight from about 8600-lbs to about 12,500-lbs so I recommend at least an 18K-rated hitch so that once your trailer is fully loaded you will still have a good safety margin with your 2016 Nissan Titan XD. Since your 2016 Nissan Titan XD truck is a short bed, you will need a sliding type 5th wheel hitch to ensure enough turning clearance when you're making tight near-90-degree turns.

  • The 5th wheel and Gooseneck towing capacity of a vehicle like your 2016 Nissan Titan XD Diesel 4x4 will be almost identical. A 5th wheel trailer will have more weight directly over the bed in most cases, but it is built for the weight to be dispersed between the king pin and axles in the same way that a gooseneck trailer is dispersed over the coupler and the axles. Due to that slightly higher weight on the hitch of a 5th wheel trailer, the hitch itself has a wider base over the frame...

First thing you will want to do is make sure you find a 5th wheel hitch that is rated properly for your camper. Next with a short bed you will definitely have clearance issues with the truck and camper when making turns so you will want to make sure that you get a hitch that allows for extended travel like the 22-1/2 inch travel that the 13K Hijacker Demco 5th Wheel AutoSlide # DM8550040...

  • Hitch Extension for Camper & Replacement 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch for 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • There are hitch extensions available but the Curt Combo Bar # C49360 is not one and would not work in that manner. The best option is the Reese Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches # RP11004 because it is 18 inches which is the longest available for standard 2" trailer hitches. It is important to note that the use of any hitch extension will reduce the capacity of your truck's hitch by 50 percent. So if your truck has a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity an extension...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2016 Ford F250 Short Bed w/ Factory Tow Prep Package; Proper Hitch Height
