Video Transcript for Tow Ready Wiring 119190KIT Review

Today we're going to review part number 119190 KIT. This is the Tow Ready upgraded heavy duty modular circuit protected vehicle wiring harness with the install kit, and it comes with the 4-way flat trailer connector. This part will provide the 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your tow vehicle to power your trailer's signal light. This does have the short circuit protection which will safeguard itself and the tow vehicle against any harmful electrical shocks or mis-wire situations. It will automatically self reset, and it does virtually eliminate the draw on your vehicle's tail light circuit. The tail light circuit's been upgraded to work with vehicles using pulse width modulation or PWM, allowing the convertor to fully turn on, which gives the trailer lights full brightness during activation. This does power the trailer's stop, turn, tail, and running lights directly from the tow vehicle's battery. You attach this wire directly to your battery.

This will prevent feedback from the trailer to the vehicle's system. This may be used on 2- and 3-wire systems. The 2-wire system uses the same bulb for stop and turn signals, and a 3-wire system has separate bulbs for stop and turn signals. The thing you do have to remember when you used on a 2-wire system, your red wire which connects to your brake light, this does need to be grounded on a 2-wire system. This will adapt a 3-wire system on the towing vehicle to a 2-wire system that's on the trailer. This will work on vehicles and trailers with either LED, incandascent, or standard bulb tail lights.

It is a universal design, works with most vehicles, and it is designed also for vehicles that use the multiplex wiring systems. Now few specs on this. The maximum stop and turn light circuit has 4.2 amps maximum capacity. On the tail light circuit is 7.5 amps. This part does come again with the install kit, so basically everything shown here is included. When you go to install this, it does come with a nice set of detailed instructions.

It tells you where to do it, then it even shows you some pictures of how to connect everything. Basically what you would do is go to the rear of the vehicle. This is your converter. You'll take your double faced tape and you attach this to the bottom of that, and use this to attach your converter on a nice, safe location so it doesn't move around. Then you'll have first your 4 wires here. What you'll do is your yellow wire, that's your left turn signal.

Using the included locks here . wire connectors . you can attach this to your left turn signal. Your green would be your passenger side or your right turn signal. Your brown would be for your tail lights, and the red again is for the brake light connection. Again if it's a 2-wire system, you just ground it. Now you'll have your white wire with the eyelet on it. This will need to be grounded to a good clean ground. If you don't have one that you can find, they do include a grounding screw that can be used. Now they also include this circuit tester. This will come in handy because you'll be able to test the wires on your vehicle to make sure you get the right ones to connect to the right ones on this wiring harness. Then you'll have your length of . This is some bonded wire that your 4-way's on. This is what will run out the back to connect to the trailer. When you're not using it, you can just coil it up in the back of your vehicle. Your last wire here would be your wire that runs to the battery. Now again this part includes the install kit, so it will have everything you need to run that wire. Gives you about 20 feet of wire, and gives you the connectors and everything you'll need. What you'll do end up to run this to the battery is you'll take one end of this, connect it to your power wire. On the other end, using your included connectors, you'll tap 00:03:42 the other end to the inline fuse holder. The other end you'll have a choice of 2 terminals, depending on the battery you have. Whether it's a top terminal or side terminal, different sizes used. Put that on this and attach it to the positive side of your battery. Then what you'll do is take your included 10 amp fuse, put it in the fuse holder, put the cap back on it. It has some cable ties that can be used at any length. If this wire might be hanging down, you can use the cable ties to secure it up out of the way. With all that attached, then you should be all ready to go. Plug in to your trailer. When it's not plugged in to the trailer, it comes with this integrated dust cap that you can just pop on over the terminals just like that, to protect them from any damage or the elements. That should do it for the review on part number 119190 KIT. This is the Tow Ready upgraded heavy duty modular circuit protected vehicle wiring harness and the install kit. .

I installed this 119190KIT into my 2015 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid. I could find no review that addressed installing into a Plug-in Prius Hybrid. There were several reviews of various years of standard (non-Plug-In) Praises, but no reviews for a Plug-In. The eTrailer webpage video for 119190KIT ( has links to 4 other videos, none of which is for a Plug-In Prius (PIP), but one or more of them shows how to test and splice wires just like in the 119190kit. The video for the 2013 BMW X3 shows how to use the tester at the 2:48 mark. This tester was essential. I used it to determine which lights were connected to which wires. Do NOT rely on any videos to determine which color wire connects to which light (tail, brake, left turn, right turn). Instead, follow EXACTLY what the instructions sheet tells you. The first step was to determine which color wires in my PIP connected to which lights in the PIP’s rear tail area. When you use the tester, you MUST push the metal pointed tip directly and forcefully into the center of the plastic sheet encasing the wire. If you do not penetrate fully, you won’t get the tester’s light to come on when you press the car’s brake pedal or light switch or turn signal lever. A video that shows the internal compartments for a Prius is at this link: It's not a Plug-In model, but it shows a lot of spots that are identical nonetheless. I found that there was not a lot of slack in the wires in the PIP’s taillight assembly, but there was enough. The video below shows a 2010 Prius and how to remove the rubber seal - at about time stamp 0:30+. A good spot to screw the ground into the "doubled sheet metal" is at 2:03+. A good segment to show putting the wires under the back side of the hatch starts at about 3:00 and runs until about 3:22+ and also at 3:30 it shows how/where the banded 4-pole wire will go into a lower compartment, to be stored until need to attach to a trailer. 3:53 - 4:41 shows running wire over to the other taillight. From 5:10 to 6:20, it shows hooking up to the battery. This video shows a 2014 Prius V.... It shows the actual part that I have to connect - 118151 which includes the yellow "circle" wire.  Go to time 5:00.  It shows the yellow loop (aka, fuseholder) in the kit and how to install it at around time 5:42+ thru 6:23 and beyond shows attaching the yellow to the positve battery pole at around 6:40 to 7:00.  Shows adding fuse to fuseholder at 7:13+. At 7:30, starts to show attaching the ground wire to the "factory ground.  Through and past 9:20 shows zip-tying all wires. Here's another video that shows splicing…..with the kit’s “no-splice” connector. 3:30 to  about 5:13. WARNING - you must use pliers as shown to connect two wires that the directions say to connect. You have to squeeze the pliers pretty hard to get the metal piece in the plastic quick-splice connector to go all the way through the plastic sheathing and then make contact with. The video does not emphasize that you have to squeeze the metal piece pretty hard. In fact, when I first used four quick-splicers for connecting and then tested to see if a connection was made, only one of the 4 quick-splice connectors resulted in an electrical connection. So, I had to open up the 3 connectors and press the metal piece inside the quick-splice connector real hard. So, be careful!! I have a moderate degree of experience with home electrical wiring, but none with car wiring. I just took my time and it all worked great!!! 274346


This wiring is still working perfectly after one year! Very satisfied.

The trailer lighting kit I purchased from ETrailer was an easy installation and works as advertised. There were only two things that could have been better. The kit was missing one butt connector and the green wire was a bit too short for my installation on a 2013 VW Tiguan, so I had to extend it. Although I have many DMMs and other test gear, I found the included tester to be my choice of testers for this installation. It does the job well and is easy to use. Just remember to cup your hand over it if you are working in direct sunlight or you may not see it turn on. The only recommendation I have for the manufacturer is that a list of vehicles be included in the installation instructions so that the proper wiring setup is easier to identify. It wasn't too hard to figure out, but I would have felt a lot better knowing I made the correct choice before I started making permanent connections. It helps to use a set of ramps on the left (driver's side) front and rear wheels to have enough room under the vehicle to run the long power lead. Installation did take a few hours, but I didn't rush the job and I also was talking to a neighbor as I did the work. Watching the installation video was very helpful. I picked up quite a few tips and knew exactly what to expect. If you have a Tiguan, use the VW-supplied tool to help remove the rear lights. The tool helps to pull a cover off of each light to gain access to the bolts holding the lamp assembly in place. Once you have the bolts out, pull the light assembly straight back while wiggling it to free it from the white retainer. To remove the electrical connector, turn the lamp assembly upside down and pull out the red part until it stops. Next, depress the clip just in front of the red sliding piece to remove the power connector from the lamp assembly. Sorry, I should have taken photos. In summary, I highly recommend this lighting kit if you have LED taillights. It was easy to install and it works great! 145377


I have a 2014 Tiguan and am considering this wiring option vs. the expensive stock set up. I am wondering if you get any check lights on the dash when using this set up with a trailer? Thanks!

The harness works perfectly with my 2015 Honda Fit and installation was pretty solid, especially now since Honda makes interior clips easy to remove. I had trouble with the wiring at first due to having the 3 wire system, but after giving etrailer a call during the install I was walked through which colors go where (I was watching the 2014 VW Passat video where they say to make the red wire the extra ground, don't do it with the Fit! It's the brake light FYI). No instructions included, just check out the sample videos on this page for the install on other similar vehicles. We purchased the custom Drawtite hitch and wiring harness to help pull along our hot dog stand (Gnar Dog's Hot Dog Stand) in the greater Cincinnati Area. Couldn't be in business without etrailer; thanks guys! 272197

Easy to install on a 2014 X5D M sport with LED lighting package. For others attempting the install, here's the wiring that I used: Module X5 Yellow -> Right side (black/white) Brown -> Right side (purple) Red -> GROUND (same screw as the white wire) Green -> Left side (black/purple) White -> GROUND Took about an hour to install, the X5 has a great ground screw and place to store the module on the drivers side. Test light included helped make it easy to find the right wires (but, now that you have the above map, you won't need to find them if your truck is like mine). Great service from eTrailer, delivered quickly with all the parts. My only complaint is that this module doesn't look that good hanging out the back of the X5 when trailering, I knew that going in, and given the outrageous cost of the stock trailer system (1000+), this was a good compromise for me and anyone who doesn't trailer all that often. 145461


Still working great, no complaints at all. Very good product, especiallywhen youre dealing with BMWs insane pricing for the OEM tow kit!

The product works great. The worst thing about it was that there were no instructions with it at all. I had to email etrailer and they in turn emailed me the instructions. Other that that no problems. Fast shipping and product is as advertised. I used this product on my Victory Vision so that I could pull my trailer. Below is a picture of where I placed it. It worked out best in my opinion to velcro it to the back of the saddle bag. It actually mounted right under the wiring harness of the bike that I had to tie into. 85345


Still works great. No problems at all.

It took some time and trouble to figure out how this correlates to the installation video (for the Curt model, which has fewer wires). Once the right wires were identified, it was very simple and straightforward. The system works like a charm, and I've already towed a U-Haul trailer. Depending on the vehicle, I would recommend getting some 3/8" wire loom ($1.99 @ Home Depot) to protect the power wire from abrasion/cuts if you route it along your car's underbody. The included instructions (online & paper) are too generic to be useful, and the vehicle wiring codes (types of wire systems: 2-wire, 3-wire pulse, etc.) don't have a reference on the TowReady website. Moderate gripes, but some streamlining would've saved me unnecessary troubleshooting. All the parts you need are included, with extras just in case. 48370


Hey Jameel, not sure if things were different back in 2012 but for folks ready your review today, I suggestion 1/4 wire loom instead. The 3/8 diameter is larger than needed and leaves more play.

I would have rated this better if good installation instructions were provided for my car model. If you're going to connect the 119190/119191 kit to a 2012 VW Golf, like mine, you will find that the correct wiring is from the ModuLite catalog Vehicle Code BM-1 3-Wire System (such as Mercedes R-class) - NOT the B 3-Wire System as listed in the ModuLite catalog. My VW Golf uses the same bulbs for taillights (providing 6 volts) and brake lights (providing 12volts). To make the converter work correctly, ground the brown "tail light" wire and connect the red "stop" wire to the VW wire that lights the tail light. In the three pin taillight connector (right or left side of the car) the middle wire is a ground, one outside wire is the turn signal and the opposite outside wire is the tail/brake light. Connect the red wire to the wire that is NOT the turn signal. If you follow the ModuLite B 3-wire suggestion and connect the red wire to ground and the brown wire to the VW tail light wire, the turn signals and brake lights seem to work correctly during the day (when you don't have the taillights on) but when you turn on the taillights, you don't get brake lights when you apply the brakes. 152555


Great review. Thanks! I also have a 2012 Golf TDI and followed your instructions. This saved me a ton of time since I literally did exactly what you stated and it worked out great. Thanks again.

I installed my unit on a 2013 Audi a4 quattro sedan. using the provided tester I determined it is a two wire system. i installed unit in driver side outside of trunk. I easily snaked the green wire through trunk to passenger side chamber. The battery is in the trunk, so it was easy to connect supplied fuse connector directly to battery. Wiring: Unit green wire to gray/blue wire on passenger side Unit Yellow wire to gray/white wire on drivers side Unit Brown to Green wire on drivers side. No drilling needed Ran trailer wire into trunk and out through cut out on trim where hitch is Works perfectly. Reason for not a 5: No directions and missing 1 crimp connector. 349209


Thanks for your business and your detailed review regarding the wiring, Frank. Depending upon the factory product run, the vehicle wiring colors may change. We always recommend testing for function before connecting the wires.

The kit came complete with all that was needed for installation and really fast shipping. The video offered on the website for the BMW E70 X5 was outstanding and provided all the detailed instructions needed. I had absolutely no problems and the job took about 1 hour. The system worked flawlessly when connected to my Road King trailer. Coupled with the Curt Class III hitch this combination made for a much less intrusive trailer hitch option for significantly less than the OEM option. I would highly recommend this trailer hitch kit. 128335


Outstanding. No problems at all. It was a cinch to install. Have towed utility trailers and boat trailers without issue. Much less expensive and a lot cleaner installation that factory.

The kit worked well. Installation worked as directed by Brandon on my 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan on the following site would recommend this kit. I did have to increase the length of the green wire but only because I found that on the Tiguan the ideal installation location is in the drivers side panel behind the jack, which required me to run the green all the way across the car. I was able to easily remove trim panels and run the power up to the battery area. Was missing the yellow butt connector but had some laying around. The hitch installation was a breeze as well. 83359


When you passed inside of car the power to the battery area, where did you pass the wiring near motor area?

I used a coat hanger and after some trial and error was able to push the coat hanger through on the under side of the main wiring harness from inside vehicle. I had to keep the coat hanger right next to the wiring and poked around until it went through. Once it was through I pushed it in enough that you could see it in engine compartment. I attached wire with electrical tape and pulled it through. I then ran wiring around battery box on drivers side of car. It was easy to route around areas that get hot.

The wiring kit was fairly easy to install. It had less to do with the kit and more so with the tight space in the rear corner of the car and the TINY wires the car came equipped with. There are no instructions but eTrailer has an installation video for my car linked to their product page. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. What I learned was once i crimped the wire connector on, two of them didn't slice the insulation and make connection so I crimped down harder until I had a good electrical connection. Bottom line is check each connection with your DVM or the supplied lamp tester before proceeding or taping everything up. 121282


I installed the light kit a year ago and have had no problems at all.

I have an 04 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab SLT 5.7 with the typical "no power to the yellow wire" for my trailer wiring harness. All lights on the truck worked and right side trailer lights worked. The yellow wire supplies the left turn and brake lights and wouldn't function. All Dodge forums say problem is in the fuse block in the engine compartment, a $400-$900 replacement depending on how you get the part. My truck was no different and I wasn't spending that kind of money for trailer lights. Saw a guy on one of the forums purchased this same trailer wiring harness. I just finished installing and it fixed everything. I now have trailer lights that work and even wired in my tailgate led light strip. Everything works perfectly and for under $100.00. The shipping was quick and instructions straight forward and for the price you can't beat it. Best part is the system is circuit protected, so it will protect my truck in the future from screwing up the circuit boards in my fuse block if you happen to tow a trailer with a short in the wiring harness. I highly recommend and this wiring harness. 10058

Received it right on time. Thanks to the etrailer video, I was able to install it on my 2014 VW Passat TDI without a problem. Well, that is other than knocking a wrench into the wheel well. But, even that was quickly remedied with the help of a magnet. Hooked it up to the trailer and VOILA! I had brake lights and turn signals. Great product and an excellent company to deal with. 221086


Still working great. Towed the drift boat to Idaho for a fishing trip and the trailer lights worked perfectly. I continue to stand by the statement, its a great product.

I enlisted help from a friend to install wiring harness on my 2014 Victory Vision. I wont say it was easy. We struggled, but much of the problem was with the existing wiring on my trailer. The kit included everything we needed. Good kit...good price!

I bought this harness for my 2014 MB GLK250 BlueTEC (I'm certain that it'll work for the GLK350 as well), and it works great. I did however discover that the car uses the same wire to trigger both turn and brake lights, and splicing the kit's yellow wire into this double-duty car wire did the trick; the kit's red wire (intended for a stand-alone brake light) was consequently not used. The car is so well covered up everywhere that I couldn't find a way to route the battery wire without being conspicuous; since I only tow once in a long while, I just ran the wire through the passenger compartment, first entering the car under the A-pillar and past the door jamb into the interior, then straight back to the cargo area. Overall, the kit was well put together, and came with everything that was needed; the green wire (for the other turn signal) was also long enough to reach across the width of the car's interior, under the trunk cover. 195233

I bought the 119190KIT, TK90160, and ETBC7 based on etrailer's recommendations for my 2010 VW Golf. I came into DIY trailer electronics without a clear understanding of what I needed, so I asked etrailer what would work for my car, and they put together this well-priced and high quality bundle for me. The parts arrived quickly and in good order, and using the included instructions and some videos from this site, the installation process was fairly painless. The biggest hitch for me was that the VW MKVI runs multiple modulated signals along one wire to the tail lights, so wiring for the turn signals had to be run up to the headlights instead. The kits didn't include this information, nor enough wiring to do that extra work, but it didn't set me back very much more. Great service, great products, and lots of excellent information on this site. I'll definitely be an etrailer customer for any more trailer stuff! 423912

Downsizing so I needed a hitch setup for my 2015 Honda Fit. I have utilized etrailer previously on my daughter's Outback and received the same prompt FREE delivery. Solo install and only a little regret not having a mate to support the hitch when doing the bolt up. No surprises and that is a good thing. Note: Bend the one muffler hanger down about a quarter inch to remove any chance of muffler against bolt head tap. Thanks etrailer. 423161

Bought this for the 2011 BMW X3 3.5. Very easy to install; it took me around 45 minutes. I didn't even have to remove the taillights since the taillight wires pass behind the pop out panels inside the BMW. It works fine, no warning lights or other electrical problems from the BMW vehicle status monitor. The only thing you will need in additional to the kit was a metric nut to fasten the terminal to the bolt on the battery terminal (it was either a 5 or 6mm nut) and you will need to extend the green wire that goes to the right tail light. It is barely long enough to reach and I was concerned about stretching it without any slack so I added a foot to it and tie wrapped it to battery cables. (You will need a piece of 16 ga wire and 1 butt splice connector for this). 21588

The video for this installation on a 2012 Q5 was excellent. A couple of point to add. For fishing wire, a small piece of ice maker water line works great if you cant find or don't know what aircraft tubing is. Mounting the unit in the area shown with adhesive tape on is not the easiest. I would suggest removing the panel to get a proper place to mount this correctly. The door hinge has a plastic cover that is already hiding a wiring run. If you remove this, which is easy, you can run the wire with this, cover it back up, and its completely hidden. I would suggest soldering wire to wire splices rather then butt connectors. The T connectors are still the simplest and cleanest way to splice into existing wiring. 294493

Have a 2004 Volvo XC90 which according to those that own them are super picky about trailer lights. With this kit and the installation video it was a pretty simple task to complete and works like a charm. Its nice knowing that there isn't any power drain on the existing light system, this senses and applies power to the trailer lights. Would definitely recommend watching the etrailer video a few times for the Volvo XC90 and take some notes about which color wires go to which it makes it easier during installation. First time etrailer customer but I'll be back! Shipping was fast, follow-up from the company was a shocker, that never happens in this day and age! 355104

Could not be easier to install this unit in the factory mounting holes. Used a dremel to remove the factory scored cover in the bumper cover then bolt it on. Twenty minute job. Note my VW Tiguan already had a trailer wiring set up in place so i should not have ordered a wiring kit. Check first to see if you are pre wired. 41623


From what I gather you remove the plastic cover dremel under the rear bumper center, attach the hitch with the supplied hardware. Please explain about the wiring again. I have a Tiguan SE, and heard that the wiring might be ready for installing. Does it already have the plug to go into the trailer harness? 2013 Tiguan Thanks

-- comment by: Allan - 05/09/2013


Some of the Tiguans are pre-wired with a 4-pole trailer connector or are pre-wired for a plug-in trailer connector that is available at the dealer. You can find out for sure by either calling VW and giving them the VIN and they can tell you or you can head to the dealership and they can help you determine if the vehicle is pre-wired.

Partly Works on 2007 VW Rabbit This wiring harness was suggested for the 2007 VW Rabbit via the adviser on this site. I ended up having the shop where I bought my trailer go ahead and install this wiring kit. There were problems... After 2 days and many phone calls between etrailer, towready, and sequent towing (manufacturer), it was found that the left and right turn signals could not be wired to the Rabbits rear multiplexed rear lights. In the end, I had to leave the shop with working running and brake lights, but had to run two wires to each of the turn signals at the front of the car (that aren't multiplexed). 1432

I bought a Hidden Hitch and Wiring Kit for my Volvo XC90... Fast shipping from Etrailer... Great Product... Hitch was a little tricky to manuver into place but once I had it up there the bolt holes lined right up... For the wiring I used the Video on Etrailers web site. It was very helpful in knowing what to do.. If i had one thing to change I would suggest putting a vehicle wireing guide in the packs. Although the video was dead on I did have to stop working on the Volvo to come in and watch the video.. But all in all a Great experience... I will order again from Etrailer.. :) 7467

Installed on my 2006 Jeep Liberty Diesel. I went with this instead of the one made for the vehicle for numerous reasons. 1) Higher Capacity 2) I have aftermarket LEDs 3) I had the smaller version of this one in my other car because the other brand with the correct connectors didn't work well with my LEDs. Only issue I had was where to mount it, since it is a little large. I found a nice spot under the tail light, which is mostly out of the weather. These are suppose to be weather proof, but with all electronics, I prefer it in as dry of a spot as possible. 45397

Had no problem wiring... there was no video for a 2006 BMW X5 but I referred to the video on the 2011 BMW X5 and that worked well. I also cut the 4 pin connector off and put a five pin connector on and ran the 5th (blue wire) to the reverse lights. I also ran the wire out the back of the spare tire compartment and cut a slit in one of the rubber plugs to feed the wire through and then sealed it back with some silicone caulk. ( I don't like the idea of hanging the wire out the back of the rear bonnet like the video suggested) 378925

Followed the instructions, and went smooth. The hex head screw holding in the side panels in the trunk, of my 2014 Passat, don’t unscrew, but with a thin flat head screw driver, prying on the screw head, they come right out. Two wires broke using the quick connectors, and I had to use a crimp connector instead. I will have to search out a lift to wire the power wire to the battery. To test it, and for temporary use, I added a lighter plug end to the power wire, until find a way to get my big --- under the low car. 148891

Product arrived short one butt connector. We used the video as a guide while installing. All wires were correctly identified in the video. It took about an hour but was not at all difficult. Hooked it up to the trailer and it didn't work. Went back and re-crimped the splices. Trailer pigtail from the car now has power. I tested it with the include tester.Seems to work. I did not test this the first time and have not hooked it up to the trailer a second time but if there is a problem it is with the trailer wiring. 144474

You have to have some basic understanding of auto wiring. This unit works great and saved me from installing a new $700.00 TIPM on my 2006 Dodge Ram 3500. The unit was sent out without the direction. One call on a Sunday to customer service and the lady I talked with was very helpful. . Poof directions in hand I started the project. Everything needed to do this project was supplied. Only thing I would change is the connectors. I used solder less with shrink-wrap (Minnesota winter salt) 21343

Overall pretty happy. Kit was thoughtful enough to include extra black wire for the hot lead to the battery. Most bikes batteries are right under the seat, my Vision carries it at front lower frame so the extra wire was a plus. I was not a fan of the splicers, if not careful they will cut your wires in half and if space is limited they can become bulky when used all in same tight area. I replaced them with a typical butt connectors. All in all great product works as promised. 383958

Instructions could have been better or have a Vehicle Code cross reference on product website. For a 2015 VW Golf I had to use VC BM-4 and grounded both brown and red wires. I used 20-22ga positaps to tap VW's wiring instead of the included taps and then connected the white to the ground point behind the liner on the left side. The green wire could have been just a couple inches longer for routing options to the right signal wire. Too bad etrailer doesn't sell positaps. 187792

This wiring kit works great! However the wires were just a tad too short so I had to add extra wire and there were no instructions to be found anywhere on how to wire this up. I used the insctruction video for the Jetta and figured out which wires I needed (but my install was a 2 wire setup not a 3 wire) it took me 4 hours to install but it does work perfectly so it's hard for me to be too upset over the wiring. 108359

Your video of the GLK350 installation helped a lot, even though I found my 2011 was a little different than the 2012 in the video. It could be done in an hour to hour and a half if the vehicle was on a lift to run the power wire to the battery. It took me about 2 to 2 and a half hours with no lift and running the power line laying on my back and scooting along (slowly) at age 63. 250118

This is a very good product with a great installation video. I ended up cutting the wires to the flat four connector so I could route the wiring to the hitch through the car body. I then reconnected the wires once routed. It would be nice to have a connector on this cord to make this process easier. Tester is an awesome addition to this kit and makes the job a sure success. 101243

The directions do not include any indication regarding which wires to the BMW taillights are for turn signals, brakes and running lights. I was not willing to guess so I'm going to take it to shop that knows BMW wiring to have them install. The installation example on the etrailer web site is for a Volvo and is no help at all. 36879


This kit is a universal kit that can be wired into virtually any vehicle. Included in the kit is a circuit tester so that you can probe the wires behind your BMW tail lights to find out which lights serve which function. The installers use this process, as shown in the Volvo video, to determine which wires carry which function.

Purchased for an installation in Canada my installer did tell me it would have been cheaper in Canada, but the quality was excellent and he had no issues installing it.

  • Can I Tow a 5th Wheel Travel Trailer with a Semi Truck or 18-Wheeler
  • The king pin dimensions are the same between fifth wheel trailers and large commercial trailers. Both types of trailers use a standard 2 inch king pin. Semi trucks were not technically designed to tow camping style fifth wheel trailers, so there are several factors that you will want to take into consideration before attempting to tow. First, you will want to make sure the truck can tow the trailer level. Towing the trailer with the nose too high or too low can cause issues with sway,...
