Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's factory tow package wiring harness, which is located beneath the vehicle, near the frame rail on the passenger's side.

Today we will be reviewing part number 118271. This is the Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness for factory tow packages. This is a 7-way trailer connector, designed to currently fit 2013 and 2014 GMC Acadias, all models, Buick Enclave all models, and Chevrolet Traverse all models. This is going to provide that 7-way blade style of trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is designed for use with factory tow packages and compatible 4 pull, 5 pull, and 6 pull adaptors that are sold separately. This system connects quickly and easily. No cutting or splicing of wires is needed.

It is constructed of a nice 16-gauge bonded wire. It also has a wire protectant that goes around the wires to help keep them out of harm's way. The custom fit T1 connector is going to plus into your vehicle's factory tow package wiring harness, which is going to be located beneath the vehicle near the frame rail on the passenger side. Once you have made those connections, you can then insert the included fuses and relays into their locations in the fuse box, which is located in the engine compartment. Once you have your installation complete, the 7-way connector will be stowed beneath your vehicle near the trailer hitch. We do recommend a mounting bracket that is sold separately, just to help keep the connector secure.

It is also recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections. The plugs on your automobile and the 7-pole connector itself, to help prevent further corrosion. It could happen down the road. It also comes with a a couple of zip ties to help clean up your installed look and to get your wiring up out of the way. I believe that's going to complete today's review of part number 118271. This is the Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness for factory tow packages.

Purchased hitch for my 2016 Chevy Traverse plus the wiring harness and a mounting bracket for the trailer wiring plug. I watched the etrailer videos and managed to get everything installed in an hour - by myself. The best product purchase I made online and best online business I've dealt with in a long time. Fast delivery. Best shipping packaging. I highly recommend this company, etrailer, and their products. P.S. The trailer hitch came with everything! mounting hardware, fuses, tie wraps, instructions. Everything was a perfect fit! 228663

Ordered on a Thursday evening and it arrived on the next Tuesday. Made wiring a super simple event. The only negative, which really isn't a negative, was that the kit included an extra fuse and relay. I went through the instructions and video a second time to be sure everything as in place. Fired up the car and all was well with the world. Would highly recommend this for wiring your Traverse. 331951

This wiring kit was a perfect fit. Everything needed to make my vehicle ready to tow on the wiring side was included, It even had a few fuses left for spare. The instructions were exact and simple. The install time was very quick and painless. I zip tied my 7 way end to the driver side underneath of rear bumper between hitch and bumper. I have a 2015 GMC Acadia with a Curt #13424 Class III hitch to tow a light weight utility trailer. 330391

Perfect fit and length. Only issue was it does not come with a bracket to mount the plug to the hitch. I guess it has to dangle or I wire tie it up, until I get one now. 304646

Easy installation on my 2015 Buick Enclave as long as you have small enough arms to reach up under the side. One downside was there wasn't a mounting bracket included, so the wiring is hanging while I search to get one. Also, the zip ties included were not long enough to attach anywhere affectively, so I had to use some I purchased another time. 499996


Comments

We can help you with a mounting option for your trailer connector! If your trailer hitch already has a bracket on it, you can simply use part # PK12711U
Mounting Bracket and Installation Hardware - Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Vehicle End
$5.95
. If the hitch doesnt have a bracket, youll need the PK12711U and a no-drill bracket, 18136. Drilling directly into the hitch is not recommended as it can weaken the hitch.

Hi George After I got the right parts things went together smoothly. The first photo is a mount sent with the original purchase for the 7 pole conector, the holes don’t align. I then spoke with another e-Trailer rep (Kathleen or Kathy) who sent out the right mounting bracket at no charge. Thank you! 462446

Like many others stated, super easy installation of the hitch. Only took me about 30 min by myself. It took me about an hour for the wiring harness and bracket since I had to find another bolt and nut since it only came with 3. The thing that gave me the most trouble was the wiring harness. I couldn't bring the cannon plug down towards me at all so I had to do it all by feel. The mounting bracket for the wiring harness I chose to flip upside down and bend towards the rear of the car and down so I could hide the wiring and hitch completely. The other reason was because I didn't want the bracket to catch on anything because it was lower than the bumper. I ordered the supplies on Fri and they were here mid day the following Tuesday. With all the great videos, a job that might have taken me 4-5 hours only took 2 hours plus knowing where the cannon plug was helped tremendously. If I hadn't known where it was I would have prob had to do a splice job. This job, in my opinion, looks professional. Thanks ETRAILER. 397511

The trailer hitch has been fine but I have had intermittent problems with the trailer wiring for a year now ( I only use the trailer a few times each year). The left blinker on the trailer intermittently quits working. When this happens, the tail lights on the left side are brighter than the right so I believe the blinker lights are shorted to the tail lights but not connected to the vehicle blinker signal. I am able to wiggle the wires near where the cable connects to the vehicle connecter and the blinker begins working and the tail lights are the proper brightness. I can't disconnect the cable from the vehicle wiring without putting the car on a lift so I have not been able to determine whether it's a problem with the vehicle wiring or the trailer light cable without taking the vehicle to a shop which I have avoided so far. The trailer wiring is fine and works with other vehicles so I know its not the trailer. The cable is properly routed around any hot exhaust pipes so it appears to be installed correctly. I plan to take it in soon as I am tired of fiddling with it to get it to work. 434084

Excellent product and service from a trustworthy company. I have purchased from etrailer in the past and was not disappointed in quality and workmanship. This recent purchase was also very satisfying in the fact that with etrailers excellent customer service reps the purchase I made was the exact part I needed. When I ran into a slight problem on Saturday, just one phone call resolved the issue. I take great pride in being able to complete a project by myself other than relying on a dealership who would charge me double for the same thing. I would highly recommend etrailer to anyone looking for trailer parts and hitches. Fast curtious service and knowledgeable reps make etrailer number one place to purchase. 652358

I sure would like to rate this wiring harness 5 stars but I had one concern about the order the colors were after installing which the hardest part was to reach the plug behind the rear tire I checked out the positions of the pins they checked out also receiving the fuses and the relays to finish the job was great I do wish the trailer brake backup light relay came with it but not many trailers have backup lights wiring was also delivered in a timely manner when I did have concern about the order they were very helpful with e-mails back and forth to me thank you 646552

Great product. Fit my 2015 Acadia great. Does not come with a bracket to fit it to the receiver hitch, make sure to get one of them. I have a draw tight hitch. The zip ties that came with it are short and dont work to help you tie up the wire loom I used longer zip ties to tie it to the receiver hitch. 637330

I can only give it 4 stars because I don’t yet know if the harness works. It was simple to install but my trailer is snowed in so I can’t test it. I do suggest that you remove the inner fender well on the passenger rear tire to do the install. At least the install was much easier for me by going that route. 609815

I received excellent customer service from etrailer! They were able to guarantee arrival of the part days ahead of my local parts supply store. (The local parts supply store also tried to sell me a part that would not fit my vehicle.) The customer service representative at etrailer was very helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, and well spoken. The Part itself, a wiring harness to add a trailer plug on our vehicle, appears to be high quality, and fit my application perfectly. I was able to simply plug the wiring harness into the existing factory plug at the rear of our vehicle. Two things would have made the wiring harness, a Tekonsha product, better. The wiring harness did not come with any di-electric grease, which should be provided for any exterior electrical connection. I had to supply my own di-electric grease for the project. And while the part did come with four supplied zip-ties, they were too short to properly attach the wiring harness to much of anything underneath our vehicle. I had to supply my own, longer and stronger zip ties for the project. All in all, a great product, and backed by excellent customer service from etrailer.com. 573009

2017 Chevy Traverse Super easy installation. I was able to install it myself. There were a few issues I had to overcome however: 1. Getting the plug into the wire harness underneath the vehicle took quite a bit of time as it is very hard to get to. I ended up having my wife help me by pulling the plastic body piece out so I could get my arm in to reach it better. 2. The YouTube video is very helpful for the most part however, There is a discrepancy between the directions that came with the wiring harness and the fuses/relays that were included. Follow the instructions that come with the harness and it will be alright. Do not rely on the Youtube video for this portion of the install. 3. The plug connector that attaches to the hitch itself needs a mounting bracket that IS NOT included with the hitch. The bracket is easily found at an automotive parts store but take the connector with you to make sure it fits properly onto the bracket. Other than these minor (and somewhat confusing) issues this tow package was easy to install and it is VERY well built. 572980

The only thing keeping this item from a five star review is that they didn’t provide a better mounting location for the wires near the exhaust system. Some location clips (what I ended up finding) would have completed the kit. Other then that, it was plug and play. 457330

  • Adding a Trailer Wiring Harness to a 2015 Chevy Traverse LT without Factory Tow Package
  • You have a couple of options for adding a trailer wiring harness to your 2015 Chevy Traverse that did not come with the factory tow package. If your trailer has a 4-Way flat connector on it then you can use # 118270 to add a mating 4-Way to your Traverse. If the trailer requires a 7-Way then you can install # 118271. In either case the harnesses include the fuses and relays to make the harnesses fully functional on your Traverse. I have linked videos showing example installations of...

  • For your 2017 Buick Enclave, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118271 which will connect to factory wiring and includes the fuses and relays to activate the tow package even if your vehicle did not come with one. This wiring harness will be tucked up under your side panel underneath on the passenger side which is difficult to see in the attached a video of the similar Chevy Traverse.

I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # E98863 for your trailer hitch which is a fairly easy installation that you can do and save yourself the mechanic costs.

Then all you'd need is a wiring harness designed for your vehicle like the part # 3026-P. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195.

If you would like to have both a 4-Way and a 7-Way then install the T-One # 118271 and swap out the connector with the Hopkins # HM40920.

  • Which 7-Way Trailer Connector Fits a 2016 Chevrolet Traverse with the Factory Tow Package Connector
  • I looked up your previous order and you purchased the wiring harness, parrt # 118270. Since this plugged in and worked for you it means you have the factory to package connector without having the complete tow package. This is good news because all you need to add a 7-way trailer connector is part # 118271. This will give you a 7-way and replace your 4-way plugging into the same place. So you don't need the # ETBC7 kit afterall.

  • Tow Ready wiring harness # 118271 is designed for 2014 Chevy Traverse models that came with a factory tow package. It is possible that your model does not have the factory tow package. But, it is also possible that the connector you need is tucked up where you can't easily see it or reach it. You would need to fish around for it up above that panel in the location where it is supposed to be. If you do not have the factory tow package (have the dealer run the VIN if you are not sure)...

  • Best Way To Add a 5-Way Trailer Connector to a 2014 GMC Acadia
  • In order to add a 5-way trailer connector to your 2014 GMC Acadia I recommend using a combination of the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118271 along with the Mighty Cord Trailer Connector Adapter part # A10-7275VP. The Tekonsha harness listed above is a direct plug and play option that comes with all of the fuses and relays that you will need if your Acadia does not have them or did not come with the factory tow package. This is also the most reliable wiring harness we have available...

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way and Brake Controller in a 2013 Chevy Traverse
  • What you need first is the 7-way part # 118271 which is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Chevy Traverse without trailer wiring. Then you'd be able to use the factory port of your vehicle to install the brake controller. Then to install the # TK90160 that you mentioned all you'd need is the part # 3026-P that you referenced as well and you'd be set.

  • Relays for Connector 118271 and Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2015 Chevy Equinox
  • Unfortunately we do not carry the fuses, and there is not a stacked plate transmission cooler that we carry which is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Traverse, though we do have plate-fin and tube-fin coolers. If you are interested in those let me know and I'd be happy to make a recommendation for you.

  • Installing Tow Ready # 118270 Trailer Wiring Harness on 2015 Chevy Traverse
  • According to my contact at Tow Ready, as along as all the fuses and relays included with the # 118270 are correctly installed, the trailer connector should work just fine. The # 118270 will work regardless of if the vehicle was equipped with the tow package or not, as long as the connector for the harness is in place under the vehicle. If you click the provided link, you can see the installation instruction for the # 118270 wiring harness. I've also linked you to a video showing the...

  • Recommended 7-Way Trailer Connector On A 2016 Chevrolet Traverse Without Factory Tow Package
  • If you are looking to match a factory type set-up on your 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, then the round factory plug you are referring to is a 7-way trailer socket. Because you don't have the factory tow package, we need to take a couple steps to get us there. The first step is to see if the factory wiring for a tow package is present. Look behind the bumper on the passenger side for a connector. If there is a connector, we will just need # 18138. This will allow us to simply connect...

  • Installation of Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller on 2014 Chevy Traverse
  • We have many brake controllers so I would need to know which one you are specifically asking about as well as the year of your Traverse. If you can get back to me with that info I would be happy to answer your question as best as I can.

  • Adding 7-Way Trailer Connector to 2015 Chevy Traverse with Factory 4-Way Connector
  • To find which part fits to provide a 7-way trailer connetor on your 2015 Chevrolet Traverse you need to look and see how the 4-way that you currently have connects. Does it connect using the standard round car connector, like in the first picture I've attached, or is it a rounded rectangle connector, like in the second picture? If it's a round connector then you can use part # C55774 which is a 7-way and 4-way connector. If your Traverse uses the other connector then use part # 118271...

  • Brake Controller Installation in 2016 GMC Acadia
  • Thank you for your purchases and for your photo of the under-dash brake controller connector in your 2016 Acadia. I checked your order history and it looks like you initially purchased wiring adapter # 3015-P which does not fit your Acadia. This may have been the cause for the clicking sound since adapters can be pinned out in different ways. The correct Tekonsha wiring adapter for your Acadia is part # 3026-P. This has a grey vehicle-side plug that matches the design of the one...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendations for a 2016 Chevy Traverse 2LT AWD
  • I will be happy to help you select a trailer wiring harness so you can get out there and get to camping! There are a couple of different ways you can add a trailer wiring harness to your 2016 Chevy Traverse: install a harness that plugs in line with the tail light wiring or use a harness that plugs into a factory location and that also provides the accessories to make it functional. The second way is the easier installation so I recommend we look at the best option in that category. If...

  • Installing 7-Way/4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harness on 2013 Chevy Traverse LT
  • I do have a solution that would allow you to install the # HM40975 on your 2012 Traverse. I assume the socket you've found on the passenger side frame rail, to the right of the muffler as shown in Diagram 'C' that I provided. You would first install the Tow Ready # 118271 that you mentioned, because you need the fuses and relays to activate the tow package as well as the pigtail. On the rear of the 7-way where the pigtail meets the trailer connector, you'd slide up the gray locking clip...

  • To install a 4-way on your 2016 Chevy Traverse would require you to install the part # 118270. To install a 7-way (if you didn't have one) you would only need the part # 118271.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2017 GMC Acadia Limited SLT AWD
  • With the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75528 and the Curt # 13424 either option should allow the fascia door to be reattached like you see in the attached videos. Because both should work, I recommend the Draw-Tite option due to the stronger weight rating. If you will be using this hitch for towing or lighted accessories, I recommend the T-One wiring harness for factory tow package # 118271. This wiring harness can be used as an OEM replacement, but it also includes...

  • Parts Needed to Install Brake Controller in a 2015 Chevy Traverse with 7-Way
  • If your 2015 Chevy Traverse has the factory 7-way you would just need the correct brake controller harness to activate a brake controller to allow you to be able to activate the trailer's brakes. For that you would need the part # 3026-P. This adapter plugs into the 6-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. For a brake...
