Installed on my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 in ten minutes. Works excellent! No more draping my wiring harness over my tailgate!



by:

Works well. Defiantly better than installing a gooseneck under the bed hitch. You can swap the plate over to a fifth wheel plate with ease. 2 birds one stone. Defiantly recommend

Exactly what I needed. The Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel 90-Degree Harness is truly plug 'n play. Once you decide on the truck bed location for the new 7-pole plug and drill the hole the rest is simply snap together and you're done. The new harness fit perfectly with the factory 7-pin connector and had plenty of length to allow for the new plug to be mounted conveniently in the truck bed wall. No more cable hanging out over the tailgate.

I have used the Hopkins Endurance 90-degree harness monthly over past year since installation. I have also used the factory bumper 7-pole plug as my towing needs required. Both connectors work every time indicating a solid fit and good contact between the factory 7-pin connector and the added Hopkins Endurance connector. Very pleased with both ease of installation and performance.



by:

Perfect, easy install. Pu bed was wired for 5th wheel or gooseneck in l5 minutes.

This harness was a breeze to install. Simple unplug and plug back together, cannot be any easier. Harness was plenty long to locate the plugin anywhere you would choose. Factory style connectors worked perfect. Highly recommend this product and would absolutely buy again. Thanks etrailer for your quality products and wealth of application/installation info available!!!

Very well just as expected.



by:

Worth every penny to keep everything in the bed when hooking to a fifth wheel or gooseneck. Very simple install with just needing a holesaw.



by:

Didn’t end up needing so will return



by:

Have not installed yet, looks like 30 minute job! Plug and play.

No problems with product. Works like a charm & is easier to plug in and out than my older unit.



by:

Definitely plug and play. No installation or use problems at all! The simple way to add 5th wheel wiring capability!

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

Finally got the right part, my bad the first time, and the Hopkins wiring harness was in my 2006 Dodge Ram truck in less than 30 minutes. Most of your time will be spent drilling the hole in the side of the bed. I used a 2" hole saw vice the 2 & 1/8th (already had the 2" and didn't want to run out and buy another hole saw) and had no problems getting the harness through the hole. Hooked up the trailer and everything worked perfectly. There's plenty of harness, maybe too much, for any application in the truck bed. Great product!



by:

High quality and good instructions. The manufacturer provides plenty of cable to put the additional connector virtually anywhere.

Wow what a fantastic experience! It first started when I called to verify I was buying the right 5th wheel wiring kit for my 2009 Dodge Ram 2500. Nicky K was the salesperson that helped me out, she took the time to verify my order and she placed the order for me at that point, I chose the two day delivery option and it arrived on time as she promised.
The endurance professional grade 5th wheel wiring kit part # 42137 was so easy that it took me only 45 minutes to install from start to finish, and most of that time was Running the wire from the bed location to the back of the truck where the factory 7 pin receiver is located. this kit is truly plug and play!! If I could do this in this amount of time and not have any problems then anyone can do it.
I would definitely recommend this company and this product to all my family and friends.

The wiring harness for my gooseneck 7 pole hitch on my Dodge is as advertised. The only problem is I looked under my truck it is not wired with a stock connector. I will have to cut and splice it anyway. Not a problem with the product but with my wiring.

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

After using this plug adapter for a year I have been very satisfied. It was very easy to install, wiring plug was an exact fit. I use it for my fifth wheel travel trailer. I have not had any problems. Great product, thanks.



by:

Ordered part and it was picked, packaged and shipped same day and arrived when said. I would order from you again. I ordered the 5th wheel harness for bed of truck. Just unplug one wire harness and plug in the other, easy and fast.



by:
2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

I originally had ordered a different product but it was back ordered a month which I was ok with. After I placed the order, I received an email stating they had another conector that was basically identical that was in stock and if I wanted to switch to that one, I could call in and switch. So, I called in and they changed my order to that in-stock plug and it was here within a week! Awesome and easy customer service. It was also really easy to truck.

As for installation, it went flawless and I was done in under an hour. Hooked it up to one of my trailers and everything works perfect (including trailer brakes). Very happy with the whole purchasing/installing experience!



by:

Super easy install. Only needed about half the length of the wiring harness it comes with. Forget looking all over for a 2 1/8" hole saw. A 2" will do the trick. (The trailer video says 1 1/8", but that needs to be corrected). This harness is well worth the money.

BW make a fine product



by:

The hitch was better than I thought it would be. Installation was easy with the enclosed instruction sheets. The Quality of the hitch assy. is great. I highly recommend this hitch.
The wiring harness worked great and was easy to install.

  • 7-Way Kit for Truck Bed of 2005 Ram 2500 for Fifth Wheel Towing
    We have the Hopkins 5th Wheel 7-way kit part # HM42137 which fits your 2005 Ram 2500 and will give you a 7-way you can mount up in the truck bed.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller that Does Not Work at Trailer Connector
    If the brake output is active at the back of the controller but then not active at the 7-way connector that would indicate you have a short on that circuit somewhere between the two. It could be as simple as corrosion on the pins of the 7-way or even at the back but if not you'd have to trace the wiring to find the short and fix as needed. I attached a help article on troubleshooting brake controller installs for you to check out as well.

    Actually, the # HM42137 that you looked at is exactly what you need.

Once installed, both the trailer connector in the bed and the one on the bumper will be operational. It's a very simple install that'll take less than an hour.

  • Can 7-Way Wiring be Used to Power Headache Rack Lighting Functions
    The problem with using 7-way wiring for a headache rack is that there isn't a dedicated stoplight circuit so if the rack has a third brake light you won't find the correct circuit at this harness. The turn signals, running lights, and reverse lights are present though with the # HM42137. I attached a diagram that shows where you'll find them.

To see if this is the correct product for you scroll down on the product page to see if this is confirmed fit for your vehicle.

  • Trailer Running Lights Come On when Horse Trailer is Connected to Shore Power or Using Battery
    It sounds like the trailer running light circuit is somehow connected with the 110/12 volt transfer switch which also probably is able to charge the trailer battery. You can follow the running light wire from the front of the trailer and see where all it goes to determine if that is what is going on. There could also be some sort of back feed short. Make sure that the trailer connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out and that all of the grounds, including the ones for...

  • 7-Way Wiring Recommendation for Fifth Wheel 7-Way in the Bed of 2001 Dodge Ram 2500
    Looks like somebody used quick splices to wire in the 7-way on your 2001 Dodge Ram and then when they removed the 7-way they just cut the wires leading to them. Thank you for the picture though as that helps me understand you setup very easily. Since it sounds like you are trying to install a second 7-way in the truck bed of your truck the easiest solution would be the part # HM42137 that would install inline with the factory 7-way wiring harness.
