Video Transcript for Pollak Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - PK11916 Review

Today were going to review part number PK11916. This is the twist-in seven pole RV style trailer connector for Chevy and GMC vehicles. This socket is designed to fit into a pre-existing cutout on your GM truck models 2007 and newer. This twist-in connector also serves as a replacement for OEM sockets on GM trucks 99 and newer that came with the factory tow packages. Basically, the way this would insert is on your truck on the bumper usually, there is a cap thats in the hole that this would go into. If you just take that cap, twist it and pull it out, then the hole would be exposed.

You would take this and these tabs right here, you would just line it up, put it in, twist it into position. That would lock this onto your rear bumper. This socket is made of a high-impact nylon construction which will resist corrosion, has a spring loaded lid as you can see here with a stainless steel pin, and has a runner gasket on the inside. That lid will help prevent intrusion of moisture when closed. If you do get any moisture on the inside, at the very bottom here, there is a drain slot which is angle designed for drainage.

So, basically, when this is installed on the bumper, this will actually angle towards the cap here which if any moisture does get inside it will go down that drain slot and drain out. This part does include the wiring diagram for quick installation, does have the copper-plated terminal pins you can see here which will give you high conductivity and low resistance, and at the very back you might be able to see its sealed with a silicone at the back of the socket and this will prevent moisture from contacting your mating connector. So, basically, when you install this you remove that cap off your bumper, put this in, lock it into place, take your harness that is on your truck and plug it into the back here. You have a working seven way on your truck. The application again is all Chevrolet and GMC trucks 2007 and newer and it will serve as an exact replacement for 99 to current Chevy and GMC trucks with the factory tow packages.

The current rating on this is 30 amps. The volt rating is 12 volts and it does come with a one year limited warranty. And, that should do it for review on part number PK11916. .

After spending a little time online figuring out how this connector attaches to the factory hitch (push the tab, twist about 1/4 turn, pull out far enough to reach wiring harness connector), I ordered one from etrailer. When I got it, it took me all of 5 minutes to remove the broken connector and install the new one. Upon examining the OEM connector, which says "GM" on the lid's outside, it says "Pollak" on the inside, so the OEM part was built by this aftermarket company. No wonder it fit so well! BTW, the original broke because of cockpit error, not because of manufacturing defect. 128958

Perfect fit for a 2010 Silverado 2500HD. Time saving tip: It's not necessary to disconnect the molex plug from the old connector before twisting it out like it shows on the video. Just twist out the old one and the cable bundle will come through the hole in the bumper. From there you can disconnect the plug and plug in the new connector. It will save you two trips under the truck! 194832

Part arrived on time and is exactly as described. I have a 2009 Silverado WT that did not have the factory connector installed , but was factory wired to the blank in the rear bumper. The PK11916 connector plugged into the factory harness and snapped into the factory hole in the bumper with no problems. Very easy to install! 214750

Looks like OEM and took all of a minute or two to install. The video was very helpful to show how to remove plate on back of rear bumper. The wiring harness on my 2012 Silverado wasn place so it was only a matter of removing plate and plugging in. A seven point adapter then plugs into this and the trailer plug just pushes onto the adapter. I tried both a seven point adapter that I kept from my 2005 Silverado and also a seven point adapter that my brother has on a 2011 Honda Pilot and they are all universal and worked just fine.. Very user friendly.The tow hitch took about 45 minutes to also install with no help (though a second person could make it a 30 minute ordeal tops). Very pleased and the shipping was ahead of original date with just normal ground freight.. 47314

This little marvel was a piece o' cake to install. Less than 10 minutes from taking it out of the box to installing in the bumper of my Chevy and wiping my hands on my pants. If my nosy and talkative neighbor wouldn't have been staring over my shoulder, it would have been installed in under 5 minutes. 127695

Looks to be good quality. Easy to install. Remove the old connector by depressing the keeper, turning it counter clock wise about a quarter turn, slide it out, depress the keeper on the wiring harness connector and unpluging the unit. Install the new connector by pluging in the wiring harness connector, sliding the unit through the bumper hole and turning it about a quarter turn clock wise to lock it in place. It took less time than writing this. 89755

Broke my trailer electrical socket on my GMC pickup, I’m 1,500 miles from home waiting for the snow to start melting to go home. The local GM dealer wanted over $70.00 for replacement part. Found this one at etrailer.com for $16.95. I had it sent priority mail as mail has been slow here in AZ , received in six day and took less than five minutes to install. Hate to leave AZ , but home in SD is calling. We will be be back next winter. Thanks to etrailer for saveing me money I’ll need for gas home. 612121

After 18 years, my original trailer plug connector was showing signs of corrosion. When I bought a travel trailer with electric brakes, I knew I could no longer trust my old connector. I purchased this replacement because it is identical to the OEM connector which I knew was excellent quality, not a cheap knock-off. It was simple to install and the wire connector plugged right in. I've been using it extensively for a year now and it's been working flawlessly. I'm glad I purchased this quality connector that I can trust. 558817

  • How Does Brake Controller Install in 2010 Chevy Silverado
  • When installing a brake controller in a 2010 Chevy Silverado there actually isn't a port under the dash designed for installing a brake controller. The needed wires are already run. You will connect the brake controller wiring with the vehicle wiring already present under the dash. I attached an install video that shows exactly how this is done with the Prodigy P3 part # 90195.

I have attached links to a product review for this connector and also an installation of this connector on a 2013 silverado.

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • I actually recommend that you use the Hopkins connector, # HM40975, because it comes with a 7-Way and a 4-Way and also comes with a bracket. The connection at the back is made to fit the factory harness on a 2003 Chevy Silverado that came with a factory 7-Way. I have included a link to a video that shows a typical installation for you. If you want to go with a regular 7-Way use # PK11893 and bracket # PK12711U.

  • There is not a plug and play harness for the 2010 Silverado, so you will need to hardwire it. The wire colors could be, but not always, Red/Black, connects to the black wire on the brake controller. White, connects to white on the brake controller. Light Blue/White, connects to red on the brake controller. Dark blue, connects to the blue wire on the brake controller. If you also see an orange wire, it is not needed.

  • 7-Way to Replace Rusted OEM Bracket on 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The Pollak 7-Pole connector # PK11916 is made for twist-in installation on OEM bumpers. We do not offer the metal OEM bracket part that this item fits into but that might be available at a dealership. What you can use is 7-way socket # 85219 which includes both a separate mounting bracket and hardware along with a 7-way socket that will connect to the existing harness on the truck.

You could replace the connector with # PK11893 and use mounting bracket # PK12711U or you can try to use one of the mounting brackets in the link I have provided.

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Work Truck
  • You will want to look up under your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD behind the bumper or above the spare tire for a wiring harness. If it is present and has a round connector at the end and looks like # PK11998 then you would be able to install 7-Way connector # PK11916 or 7 and 4-Way connector # HM40975. Chevy and Ford along with some Nissans and Dodges all went to this same connector style a few years back. The 2015 Chevy trucks also use it.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for Light Towing with 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • I would always recommend using a hitch instead of a bumper mount. A bumper mount is not adjustable and getting the trailer level is a big part of towing safely, additionally a hitch is a stronger and more secure method. We have a small hitch, that installs using 6 holes already in the truck frame and does not require any drilling. Average mechanical ability should be sufficient to install it in about a half hour. The hitch is Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75521 and it includes all the hardware...

  • Adding 4-Pole Trailer Connector to 2009 GMC Sierra Equipped with Factory 7-Way Connector
  • There's a few different ways you can do this. For the easiest choice, you can use a simple adapter like # PK12716. Simply plug it into the 7-way then plug the 4-pole connector for the trailer into the adapter. Another option would use the # 118384 4-pole connector. This 4-pole would plug inline between the vehicle wiring harness and the twist-in # PK11916 7-way. This would provide you with an always functioning 4-pole connector, and you wouldn't need to fool with an adapter.

There is no drilling or trimming required for installation of this hitch. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. For a 2500 or 3500 series short bed I recommend B&W hitch # BWHDRH25601. Again there is no drilling or trimming required. The version for long bed models is # BWHDRH25600 and there...

  • OEM Replacement Trailer Connector and Wiring Harness for a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • The OEM replacement 7-way trailer connector for the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is the Pollak Twist-In, 7-Pole Trailer Connector, # PK11916. If you also need the wiring harness with the round connector, then you will want the Pollak Pigtail Wiring Harness, # PK11998. Unfortunately this is not a simple plug-in style harness. You will have to splice this harness into the factory tow package wires at the back of the truck. I have attached an installation video of this harness on a 2002...

  • Replacement 7 Pole Trailer Connector for 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 with Factory Tow Package
  • If you need a replacement 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector because your factory connector is damaged or not working, then the Pollak Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK11916, which you reference, will work well for you. This twist-in connector serves as a replacement for OEM sockets on 2014 GMC Sierras that came with factory tow packages. I have included a link to a video of this part being installed on a 2012 GMC Sierra. The model year of the truck is different but...

  • Wiring a Prodigy P2 Brake Controller on a 2009 GMC Sierra
  • You are correct the GM wire colors do not match the standard brake controller wiring colors. You will want to connect the wiring as follows from your Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller - Proportional part # 90885 Connect the RED WITH BLACK STRIPE wire from the GM harness to the BLACK wire on the brake controller. Connect the WHITE wire from the GM bundle to the white wire of the WHITE wire of the brake controller. Connect the LIGHT BLUE/ WHITE wire of the GM bundle to the RED...

  • Installing the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller # 39150 on a 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • You can certainly install the Tekonsha Voyager, # 39510, on your 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500. If your truck has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector, all you will need to do is hardwire the brake controller wiring with the truck wiring located under the dash, below the steering column, and off to the left a little. The truck wiring will most likely be held together with white tape or a tag that explains each wires function. You will need this tag to match the FUNCTIONS (not colors)...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2003 Chevy Silverado
  • The 7-Way trailer connector on the back of your 2003 Chevy Silverado should have a round plug behind it that plugs into another harness that continues up to the front of the truck. What you can do is use # C55774 which comes with a new mounting bracket and has both a 7-Way blade style connector and a 4-Way flat. Or you could use # PK11916 that you referenced if you just want the 7-Way. Both options are assuming none of the wiring was damaged. You can use a circuit tester like # ALL640595...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Wiring Harness for 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • If you are referring to the actual wiring then you will want to use Pollak Wiring Harness part # PK11-934. This harness will require you to cut and splice but it would be the only option we have for you as we do not carry OEM parts. However, if you are referring to just the connector then you can use the Twist-in 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector part # PK11916 which install in the same position and way as the factory 7-way trailer connector on your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD.

  • How to Activate 12V Power Pin on a 2011 GMC Sierra 7-Way Connector
  • Yes, if you are looking to activate the 12V power function on your 7-Way connector, like the part # PK11916, then you may need to connect the 12V power wire to the front of the power distribution box. If you check out the attached photo you can see that it should be taped up to a wire harness under the power brake booster. The fuse will also need to be connected in the power distribution box but by the sounds of it you have already made this connection. I have attached a helpful...

  • Trailer Connector for 2013 Chevy Silverado Compatible w/ Surge Brake Equipped Trailer
  • The 7-way trailer connector on your 2013 Silverado should already be tied into the reverse lamp circuit. The center pin in the 7-way trailer connector should show voltage when the truck is shifted into reverse. If you don't already have a 7-way, you can easily install one using part # PK11916 which would install in the knockout to the left of the rear license plate as shown in the video I've linked for you. If the trailer has a 5-way connector, you can use an adapter like part # A75TB .
