Wiring Your Towed Car with Hopkins

Wiring your car for flat towing has never been easier. No more testing wires or splicing into your electrical system. No need to painstakingly position multiple diodes beneath your vehicle. No worries about voiding your warranty. With this custom-fit towed vehicle wiring kit from Hopkins, all you have to do is plug the harness into your vehicle's existing wiring, which is located behind your car's tail light assemblies. No cutting, tapping, or splicing is required.


After plugging in the wiring harness, use the included bracket to mount the 4-way flat connector at the front of your towed car. An extension loop (HM48235 - sold separately) is required to connect your towed car to your RV.


Separate vs. Combined Lighting Systems

Some automobiles operate on a 3-wire system, wherein the brake signal and the turn signals travel along different wires to illuminate different lights. (Typically, these vehicles have amber turn signals.) This is referred to as a "separate lighting system." When you hook up for flat towing using this harness, your towed car's lighting system will operate in a combined fashion regardless of whether it typically has combined or separate lighting. This means that the brake and turn signals sent by your RV to your towed car will be carried on a single wire. As a result, your car's brake lights will do the flashing for the turn signals. Your vehicle will still function as designed when not hooked up to your RV.


Do You Need a Brake Light Relay?

Because this harness wires your vehicle as a combined system, a brake light relay (RM-88400 - sold separately) may be required if you use a supplemental braking system with your towing setup. A supplemental braking system depresses the brake pedal in your towed car every time you apply the brakes in your RV. So, if your towed car's brake lights illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed and the engine is off - as is the case when towing - then you need to install a relay to ensure that the lights on your towed car always act in accordance with the signals sent by your RV via the wiring harness. Without a relay, the brake signal from your towed car will override the turn signal sent by your RV when you slow down to make turns, creating a potential hazard.

Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Rate your transcript OrderClientKevin BrossRef #20622Order #TC0848265130 Today on our 2014 Ford F150 EcoBoost Crew Cab, were going to be installing the Hopkins Custom Taillight Wiring Kit for towed vehicles, part number HM56000. Now, were going to go ahead and start here at the rear of the vehicle. Now, heres what were going to be installing on our vehicle. This side here, well be connecting in with the backside of the driver side taillight assembly. This half here, well be connecting in over on the passenger side. Well be then routing the wiring with the 4-flat on it up to the front of the vehicle.Now, were going to need to remove both the taillight assemblies.

Were going to go ahead and start here on the driver side by removing these two screws, one there and one there. Well be using an 8-milimeter socket to remove the two screws. With the two screws removed, well need to gently slide the taillight assembly out of its tabs. Theres two tabs up here on the front half. Now that we have our taillight assembly loose from the body, were going to need to disconnect the wires here on the backside.

Now since on this particular taillights, the top section and the bottom section do exactly the same functions, running, tail as well as brake.When we connect our wiring harness in, were going to go ahead and use the top connection to add our T-connector in. To make things a little easier, were going to go ahead and disconnect all three plugs by simply squeezing in on our locking tab gently pulling outward. Go ahead and set that taillight assembly aside for now. Well go ahead over to the passenger side where well remove that taillight assembly as well. Now, were over here on the driver side.

Were going to take our connectors. They need to be routed over to the passenger side. Feed it in through here. There is a hole. You reach in here that youll push the wires down through, and you pull them out from the underside.Next, well go ahead and take our 4-flat wiring.

Were going to route that the same way down to the hole. Lets now go ahead and take one-half of our T-connector. Were going to connect it here to the top portion of our taillight assembly. Both this plug and this plug are the same, and they do the exact same functions. If you wanted to make the bottom portion of your taillight assembly do the lighting functions, you could do that as well. Were going to go ahead and do the top section. Go ahead and put it in place, so make sure that we hear the locking tab click. Go ahead and use a piece of two-sided tape to secure our converter box right here to the interior panel.Now, to make sure that our box and the two-sided tape stick well to the interior of the truck bed here, were going to use a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a paper towel. Go ahead and clean the backside of our converter box. Now if you dont want to use the two-sided tape, you could also use a few zip ties, and go through the loops here, and secure just some of the factory wiring. Peel off the backside on one side of this tape, and well push that onto the backside of our converter box. We then go ahead and reach in, and clean the area where were going to stick the box. Then go ahead and peel the backside off of the tape. Go ahead and push the box into place.Now, were ready to reconnect the taillight over here on the driver side. Again, when you push this in, you want to make sure that you hear them click into place. Now, well go ahead and reinstall our taillight assembly. Next, well go underneath the vehicle, and route our T-connector over to the passenger side. Our wires that we need to route over to our passenger side are all loose here. Just to make things a little bit easier, were going to go ahead and take some electrical tape. Just help tape them together by putting a loom of tape around them every foot or so. Next, were going to go ahead and take our wiring harness. Feed it up. Work our way across.Now, we got our T-connector routed across the back of the vehicle. Now, we went through a few sections of the underside of the bed where there are some channels and some other wires that already run through, as well as use some of the factory wiring to help support the wiring. Keep it up out of the way. Now that weve got it pulled over here the passenger side, well again feed it up here through the hole with the factory wiring leading up to the taillight assembly. Well go ahead and push both pieces through. Well go up on the side, and pull the wires up into position.Now, well go ahead and hold our wiring on up into position. Go ahead and connect it here again to the top light section of our taillight assembly, so its this top plug here. Now we have some extra wire, so were going to go ahead and use a zip tie to help secure it off, so we dont have a whole lot of extra wire just dropping back down. Now that weve got the extra wire secure, well go ahead and trim off the excess zip tie. Now, were ready to make our connections to the backside of the taillight assembly. Now on this one, youll notice we actually pulled the whole reverse valve out. You could do that on anyone of them. It makes it easier to get the locking tabs out.Go ahead and put that one back in. Plug the bottom connector back in, and well plug the top connector in. Now, we can go ahead and reinstall our taillight. Next, were going to need to route our 4-flat wire up to the front of the vehicle. Well go ahead and show you the path we took to do this. Now in routing your wire to the front of the vehicle, you want to make sure you stay away from areas that have moving parts, may become hot, or have sharp edges as all of these could easily damage the wire. Well also be using a few zip ties along the way to help secure the wire. Now that we have our wire routed and secure, well go ahead and trim off any excess zip tie.Now to make things a little bit easier, Im going to go ahead and remove this lower air valance. To do that, theres a nut right here as well as over here. Go ahead and just set that aside for now to give us a little more working room. Go ahead and take our 4-flat. Pull it out the front there. Theres a couple different ways you could end your 4-flat wiring. You could take your white wire, the ring terminal and just ground it, and secure your 4-flat, and just use a jumper to your RV or motorhome. In our case, were going to be switching this wiring over to a 4-round. Were actually going to be cutting off this 4-flat and wiring in a 4-round. The 4-round that were going to be using is part number PK11410.Now, it depends on your specific application which one youll need. On our particular application, were going to need the 4-pull round. Now if the 4-pull flat is okay for your particular vehicle, you can stay with that. You can skip the following, and just secure the 4-pull flat, the ground wire, and test the connections. Were going to be replacing this 4-flat end with a 4-round end like this. Its got four prongs in it instead of being flat. Well need to go ahead and take the little set screw out of here, so that we can remove the center section. Now, were going to go ahead and cut the 4-flat off that comes with the kit.Next, well need to go ahead and cut each of these three wires apart. We also have our white wire. Next, were going to need to take the main housing for the plug, and feed all of our wires through it. Now, weve gone ahead and connected our wires here at the back of our plug. Just take the little set screw, loose them up. Put your wire in after you strip some back. Tighten it down. Now this right here is the top set screw location, so it lines up with the top of the plug. It will go back in like this. Now, lets go ahead and give you a quick rundown on what wire does which.Now when youre looking at it straight on, this is the top. The top left is the green wire which is the right brake and turn signal. The top right wire is the brown wire which is the taillights. The lower right wire is the yellow wire. Thats your left brake and turn, or your driver side. The left lower wire is the white wire which is the ground. Again, its oriented just like this with this hole here on the top is where the set screw goes in. Go ahead and put our plug back into position. Put our set screw back in. We then take a little bit of electrical tape, and tape up the backside of our plug here.Now in order to mount our 4-round, were going to be using this bracket that came with our base plate kit which is part number BX2635 for this vehicle as well as a long bracket that comes with a hose clamp and a hardware to attach these two together. Now, this long bracket is part number 118136. Now this vehicle here is an EcoBoost vehicle, so we have this piece of metal that runs across just behind the bumper here that were going to be able to use this bracket like this. Were going to put the bracket from the base plate in our long bracket together, the hardware that comes with the long bracket, just a screw. You got a locking-style nut. Go ahead and tighten everything down.Now this bracket here, the long bracket will actually attach to this metal portion with the supplied hose clamp. Now you can see that this is a little bit low, so were going to go ahead and undo the bracket, and bend it a little bit, so that it brings it up straight. Well go ahead and get an idea about how far back we need to put a bend on it. All right. Go ahead and take the bracket back off, and go put a slight bend in it. Now, weve gone ahead and taken a bracket. Put a little bit of a bow to it or a bend to it. Now, well go ahead and test it up there again. As you can see here, weve brought the bracket up, so it will sit a lot higher. It will sit something like that.Now, well go ahead and put the hose clamp back on it again. Now our excess hose clamp here, well go ahead and just snip off with a pair of tinsnips. Then, were ready to go ahead and connect our plug to the bracket. Well be using a machine screw that comes with our base plate kit, that BX2635 kit, flat washer, and a hex nut on the back of each side. Go ahead and tighten everything down. Now, were going to need to take our white wire with the ring terminal on it. This is the ground. Were going to need to ground it to the frame of the vehicle. We will get it up in here. Well be using a self-tapping screw.Go ahead and take a zip tie, and secure up any excess wiring we may have. Well then go ahead and trim off any excess zip tie that we may have used to secure extra wire. Next, we can go ahead and put our lower air dam back in place. Now, were ready to go ahead and test out our wiring on our vehicle. That will do it for our installation of the Hopkins Custom Taillight Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number HM56000 on our 2014 Ford F150 EcoBoost Crew Cab. .

Plug and Play! No issues installing this harness. It only requires two connection points, one at each tail light. The connectors fit perfectly. The only challenge is routing the wiring forward under the body, but that's not the vendor's problem. On my Ford Escape I chose to route the wiring forward on the driver's side to avoid all the exhaust components rather than on the passenger's side as recommended in the instructions. Minor gripe - the double sided tape necessary to attach the diode pack to the body was missing from the kit. Fortunately, I had some on hand, but it would have been irritating if I hadn't. 428989

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar Wiring?


  • What Parts are Needed to Flat Tow a 2011-2014 Ford F-150
  • In order to flat tow a twelfth generation (2011-2014) Ford F-150 behind your RV, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution, a supplemental braking system, and most likely a high-low adapter. Starting with the base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-524431-5 if you have the EcoBoost or the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit # 495-3A if you don't have the EcoBoost. Both options feature a hidden bracket design that will provide a nice...

  • How To Flat Tow A 2008 Ford Edge With 4 Wheels Down
  • Per the manufacturer, you can both flat and dolly tow a two wheel drive 2008 Ford Edge. If you have the all wheel drive model, you can only use a flat towing setup. For both the two and four wheel drive models, I recommend flat towing your vehicle with four wheels down as this will be the best option for frequent uses. For a flat towing setup you will first need a base plate kit such as the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit part # 4408-1. The Roadmaster base plate kit has a removable arm...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2016 Ford F-150
  • For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV. For a base plate kit you would want the part # RM-524431-4 which is a confirmed fit for your 2016...

  • Wiring Harness to Flat Tow a 2015 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Behind a Motor Home
  • Hopkins shows tail light wiring kit for towed vehicles # HM56009 as the correct option for your 2015 Ford F-150 EcoBoost. There isn't any other plug and play type of harness available for your F-150. I have included a link to a video review of this harness for you. There is a 4-Way flat on the end and since most RVs have a 7-Way connector you could use kit # HM47047 and replace the 4-Way flat with the included 4-Way round.

  • Recommended Parts to Flat Dinghy/Recreational Tow a 2009 - 2011 Ford F-150
  • A complete flat towing setup consists of a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. Since you haven't made up your mind on what specific vehicle you want, I will make some recommendations for you. Pretty much all of the parts are interchangeable for a 2009 - 2011 Ford F-150, but the base plates are a little more specific. If you end up going with a 2009 or a standard 2011 F-150 then use base plate...

You will need 5 basic components to flat tow a vehicle: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates on the truck I recommend the Demco kit # DM9518296. I've attached a picture that shows how they'll look once installed. For a compatible tow bar you can use the Excali-Bar # DM9511009 which is rated for...

  • To flat tow your 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, you will need base plates, a tow bar, wiring, safety cables, and a supplemental braking system. For the base plate for your SVT Raptor, I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms # BX2630. These base plates feature hidden reinforcements, meaning that less of the bracket will show, and the removable arms help keep a clean look for the truck when not being towed. The tow hook will need to be removed to install these base plates...
