Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Express Van

Today on our 2008 Chevy Express Van, were gonna install the Hopkins 4-Pole wiring kit with part number 31345. First, were gonna need to access the rear cargo area of the vehicle. Behind each taillight is the manufacturers connection. Well be plugging inline with this connector. To make our connection, well need to split the two manufacturers connection. Pressing on the locking tab, well pull them apart.

Now we can take our new Hopkins connector and plug inline with the manufacturers. Next, we can take our white wire with the ring terminal already pre-attached; this is our ground wire. Here to the body of the vehicle is a manufacturer ground. So what well do is go ahead and remove this bolt and make our ground connection here. Alright, now weve got our ground bolt removed, you can see that it wont fit to the ring terminal.

So what Im gonna do is go ahead and cut it off and replace it with the one thats slightly larger so itll fit to the manufacturer ground. Well go ahead and reinstall our ground stud with our new ground. Now were gonna go ahead and route the converter box 4-pole wire and our red power wire in the hide in paneling and bring it out the lower access. Now with those wires in place, were gonna go ahead and set them aside for now and route the passenger side connector and green wire over behind the taillight on the passenger side. To do this, well just gonna follow the manufacturer wiring up and around the door frame.

As I go along, Ill just use some black zip ties to secure the wiring. Now weve made both connection points behind the taillight and we secured the wiring, lets go ahead and go back, cut up any excess from the zip ties with a pair of side cutters. This will just clean up our install a little bit. Alright, now that weve got our signal wire run and secured, we need to go back and add to our power wire. Our red wire with the yellow butt connector comes directly out of our converter box and well add it to the additional red wire supplied with our install kit.

For a little added security, Im gonna go ahead and wrap the connection point with some black electrical tape also. This will help to keep out any dirt, moisture and debris. Now, both wires, which is our 4-pole connection point and our red power wire need to be routed outside of the vehicle. Were gonna run straight down to the inside of the body panel using a couple of metal clamps to secure our wire and routing it along the floor, underneath the weather stripping and outside the vehicle that way. For an added security measure, you may add a zip tie here to secure their wiring and our converter box. Now to route our wires, well just come along the floor of the van and out the corner. What Im gonna do is take a pair of tin snips and cut a little of the body away so that we can make that corner and reinstall the wire stripping. Then we can feed our wires underneath the vehicle where our 4-pole will be routed over to the hitch and our red power wire is gonna get routed up along the frame to the battery. Were gonna be extra careful to stay away from moving components such as a steering or suspension or excessive heat such as the exhaust. Were just behind the front axle of our vehicle and weve run out of length from our power wire. The reason for this is because were working with an extended version so the length of the power supplied in our install kit isnt quite long enough. But now what were gonna do is strip down the wire and well add a butt connector and some additional length to our power wire. Just as I did before, well go ahead and tape up the connection point. Now we can go ahead and continue routing our wire. Alright, now weve got our power wire straight up into the engine compartment. Were right here at the battery so Im gonna install to the manufacturers wiring over to the positive battery terminal. Now, before I completely secure my wiring, we need to add a fuse holder. To do this, Im gonna cut off any excess length from my power wire, strip it back and add it to the butt connector on the fuse holder. Just as we did earlier to our butt connectors, were gonna go ahead and use some black electrical tape and tape this one also. Now, before I make my connection to the battery, Im gonna go ahead and remove the fuse and then reinstall it after we make our connection. Now we can go ahead and make our reconnection with our power wire ring terminal to the battery. However, with the side post mounted battery style, youll need to add a battery extender to do so part number DW05416. To add our extender, first well need to remove the old battery post. Now, to remove the positive battery terminal from the positive battery cable, well need to go ahead and push it out from being held in with the rubber coating around it. Now that we have the old one out, we can go ahead and install the new one then well reconnect the positive battery cable. Now well go ahead and remove our hold down nut and install our ring terminal and well secure that with the hold down nut and tighten it down. Now were ready to go ahead and reinstall the fuse in the fuse holder. As you can see, our 4-pole connector isnt gonna be long enough to attach to center of the hitch. So what well do is to add a 4-pole loop made by Hopkins part HM47115. As part of the install kit for our 4-pole loop comes dielectric grease. Well go ahead and take some dielectric grease and place it directly into the connector. Once theyre firmly together, Im gonna go ahead and take some black electrical tape and tape up the connection just to assist in keeping out any dirt and debris. Now weve got our connection made, well go ahead and route it to the center of the hitch. Now well go ahead and take some black zip ties to secure our wiring then we can take the end cap provided with our new 4-pole loop and install it at the end of our new 4-pole connector and secure it to the hitch. Thatll complete the install of our new 4-pole wiring by Hopkins part number 31345.

48" Long 4-Pole Loop with Cover - HM47115

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (87 Customer Reviews)


I have now installed the following on my 2017 Wrangler:
Brake light relay kit .
Hopkins Towed vehicle Tail Light wiring kit.
Blue Ox base plate.
Blue Ox Patriot Portable RF Braking System.
All of this has taken about 3 days of work spread out over a week or so. Overall it went well. Not too many surprises. Crawling around under a car at 71 is a bit of a strain but I'll get over it. I must say that Donna P. has been a wonderful source of great information and has stayed right on top of the process. eTrailer has been a great source for this project.

I would recommend you all with no hesitation.

John M.


I am still in love with the products. My only issue is having enough time to use them more.


The items I ordered will allow me to adapt my utility trailer for transporting my sea kayaks. Curt and Hopkins are both quality manufacturers.
On a shipping note, the box arrived at the Post Office broken wide open. Your shipping folks need to wrap small, heavy, items in bubble wrap. Then stabilize it with foam peanuts. Just putting it in a box then stuffing the box with craft paper does not cut it. Items were not damaged so I am good to go.


I love the new setup for my truck. I changed the receiver to a Draw-Tite Ultra Frame model and mounted the connection on the receiver. It works great and accommodates both of my trailers with the 7 pin and 4 pin connections. Couldn't be more pleased. My rewiring of my light trailer is flawless, solid connections and good quality. Thanks!


It's exactly as described and what I ne ed.


Great service and selection, shipped fast and arrived ok. Parts work very well, and so far so good. Still working on a more secure and adjustable mounting solution so the light can be seen when the rack is up or down.


Works great


Very fast service and shipping!


Works great as an added extension for when the other cable is shorter than you like it to be.

Chris B.


I have used this numerous times and works well.


Lights have worked exceptionally. I didn't experience the wiring difficulties expressed by others, and I have the larger cargo carrier. My only complaints are that the wiring plug to the light fixture is exposed to the cargo and can be damaged, and the fixture itself can be pushed out by cargo. I made a protective cover mount to correct these problems. I would note that the above complaints can be applied to all the light fixtures I reviewed across the internet.


Product was exactly what I was looking for. No one local carried it. Quality was excellent as was the service.
Great job from a great company.
Merry Christmas to all at etrailer.

Bob M.


Still working great!


*Although I have not installed the trailer jack yet it looks like a direct replacement for the original one on my boat trailer. The wheel that goes with the jack definitely looks like a better fit than original.
*The electrical 4 conductor plug set... I'm using for a quick disconnect for a third
( center ) brake light for tailgaters


What's not to like. I've made a bunch of pigtails in the past and this is nice and neat without splices and tape. I use it to connect the custom Hopkins taillight kit on my car to my motor home.


Works perfectly, just as described.

used mine when I was installing of the ModuLite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness Item # 119190, so I didn't have to back up to the camper when checking function before I finished the install. Now it will be extra parts if I need it.


Along with 7-pin to 4-pin adapter this added the length I needed for my cargo tray I had purchased from etrailer years ago.


The 12" Ball Extension Bar works Great! It allows me to make 90 Degree Angle Turns without hitting my trucks bumper. Of course I need to extend the electrical light connection (HM47115), just had to trim the soft plastic to fit perfectly into my trucks connection.


Excellent quality. Good product. Using it to extend from my boat trailer wiring connection to my truck. Needed because I have a camper on the truck and also needed to have extended slide-in hitch extension.


Using this for a hitch extension. The 4 wires are fused flat. Had to use 1/2 loom instead of 3/8. I understood the 3/8 would work when I ordered. Had the description shown the wires were fused flat i would give 5 stars.


I bought this item because I have one trailer and three different vehicles set up for hauling it. Each of the vehicles have different length pigtails, which pose a problem. This was an inexpensive solution! Much easier than extending the wires on two vehicles or the trailer. It's well-made, good price and shipped quickly. Thanks


Excellent quality. They thoughtfully included dielectric grease and a protective cap to help prevent corrosion so you don't have bad connections and dead lights.


The cargo tray is exactly as I expected. It meets and exceeds expectation. The LED light kit however is a big disappointment. The connector significantly protrudes into the cargo tray. Because of its design it is very susceptible to any load pushing it out of its socket onto the road. It would have been perfect if it had a pigtail connector instead. And the wire harness is to short! In the future suggest an extension. Oh well. When the inevitable happens I will make my own.


Excellent idea.Makes wiring from plug to lights much easier and more reliable. If plug gets damaged, now I only need to replace harness back to the junction box. I plan to install another box in the rear of the trailer to eliminate Scoth lock connecters that are susceptible to corrosion. Only suggestion, could have made the box smaller to fit inside the trailer channel. No need for it to be this big.


Item arrived and was as described. I felt what was really worth mentioning was the customer service. I had problems ordering on my smart phone due to coverage, so I had to call. I spoke with two customer service representatives and they were both fantastic. It's refreshing to see there is still a company that obviously cares about service.


Found exactly what I was looking for at etrailer. I purchased an 18" hitch extender to aid in launching my skiff. I paid for 3 days shipping and it arrived in 3 days along with the accessories I ordered. All products very well made and did the job.


Excellent fit. Makes good connection.


The product was exactly what I expected, and it arrived in a timely fashion. I consider etrailer my go-to vender for anything to do with towing, because tricky installations (not the case in this purchase) are explained in videos, etc.

  • Recommended Tow Bar Wiring for 2016 Ford F-150
    You are correct that aluminum doesn't work well with magnets. The Heavy Duty Magnetic Tow Lights - 20' Wiring Harness with 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # TL21RK can only be attached to the cab of your truck if you choose to use them or to a steel bumper. I recommend using the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56009 instead. This harness connects behind your tail lights to your factory harness and then you simply run the connector on the harness to the front...

  • Can I Connect the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness to the Cigarette Lighter on my 2016 Mazda CX-5
    The T-One Wiring Harness # 118563 will fit your 2016 Mazda CX-5 but needs to connect to the battery. This wiring harness has a powered converter so it requires a direct connection to the vehicle battery to power the trailer lights. Connecting the harness to the battery protects the vehicle wiring and electrical components from damage. Tapping into a 12 volt outlet of your 2016 Mazda CX-5 could over load the circuit and the vehicle's electrical system would be more vulnerable. We have experienced...

  • Adapting a 7-Way Trailer Connector on an RV to a 4-Way Flat on a Towed Vehicle
    If the coach uses the 7-Way RV style connector with blade style pins then you can use coiled adapter, # HM47065, with the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit, # HM56000, or similar tow bar wiring that has a 4-Way flat end. If the coach has a 7-Way round pin connector then you can use an adapter such as # 47405. But you will likely need a 4-Way extension, # HM47115, to reach from the front of the vehicle to the coach. If your coach has a 6-Way round pin connector then you would use an...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2013 Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe
    To be able to flat tow your 2013 Smart Fortwo you will need a handful of equipment. The Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 52285-1 will work really well on your Fortwo. It features removable arms so when you are not towing you will still have that nice, clean look. The next thing we will need to look at is a tow bar, like the Sterling # RM-576 from Roadmaster, and wiring, like the Roadmaster # RM-15267. This will help your brake lights still work on your Fortwo while towing. Another thing you...

If the GMC has 2WD, it has to be towed with a dolly with the rear wheels off the ground. When flat towing or dolly towing, the battery does need to be disconnected. You can use a Roadmaster quick battery disconnect part # RM-766. The Roadmaster battery disconnect allows you to wire in...

  • Flat Tow Wiring for a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    From the little bit that I could tell from the Cool Tech website, it looks as though their wiring harness works the same as the Hopkins Kit that we offer. The big difference is that the Hopkins Kit already has the 4 pole harness installed whereas the Cool Tech version you would have to attach the 4 pole wiring harness so that you can connect your wiring to an adapter for your RV. The Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit # HM56200 that you referenced plugs into your Jeep's tail lights without...

  • Can an Lighted LED Hitch Cover be Converted to a Tailgate Emblem on a Dodge Ram
    What you have described regarding your # CR-007D would work but instead of splicing in more wire you could just use a 4-Way extension such as # HM48145 which is 12 inches or # HM47115 which is 48 inches. The longer one would give you more options for routing the wiring. Keep in mind that the hitch cover was not designed for this purpose so any warranty it has will be void.

    There are at least 5 things you will need to flat tow your 2013 Jeep Wrangler: base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For a great clean look I recommend the Demco tabless base plates # DM9519292. They're barely noticable. You do need to have the factory bumper for the Sport model in order for them to fit.

    If you are unable to find a hole or grommet large enough for the 4-Way flat to fit through, you are left with 3 options. First, you can just leave the harness inside the vehicle and pull it out through the rear hatch as described in the instructions. Or, you could also drill out a hole using a 2 inch hole saw.

    Yes, if you were looking for a 4-way extension to go from your tow vehicle to your Jeep that is being flat towed with a tow bar and both connections are 4-way connectors the # HM47115 could be used as a way to make that connection. This provides 4 feet of extension which would normally be enough for this application.

If you want to make these extensions permanent then I recommend using some dielectric grease between the connections, # 11755, using zip ties to hold the connections together, and then using electrical tape to wrap it all up to protect it from the elements.
