Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Wiring 18252 Review

Today we're going to review part number 18252. This is the Draw-Tite Hardwire Kit with the circuit tester and 72-inch long four-way flat connector for the vehicle end. Now this part will provide a four-way flat trailer connector, the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It connects very quickly and easily. It'll supply all these connections, you'll hard wire it to give you the taillight, stop and turn functions and they are also printed on the wires so you know what colors go to which. Now when you do install or hard wire it, this does include a circuit tester which you'll want to use. You don't always want to wire color to color because sometimes that always doesn't match up correctly so what you'll want to do is take your included circuit tester, test the wires in your vehicle, and what you'll be testing, first of all the white wire, it'll be your ground wire.

Now the brown wire will be for the tail lights, the yellow would be for the driver's side stop and turn, and the green would be for the passenger side stop and turn. When you use your circuit tester, test the wires on your vehicle once you find which matches up with which, you can use these included quick connectors to attach the wires to there, just give you the four-way at the back of your vehicle. Now it does use 18-gauge bonded wire. The wire here, the connector length is about 72 inches long. The maximum amperage on this, the stop and turn light circuit, is 7.5 amps, per circuit, the tail light is 7.5 also but again this includes everything shown here, it includes the 72 inch long four-way flat connector for the vehicle end, the circuit tester and four quick connectors. That should do it for the review on part number 18252, the Draw-Tite Hardwire Kit with the circuit tester and the 72 inch long four-way flat connector for the vehicle end.

Class III hitch for my 86 Monte Carlo SS was received in 4 shipping days in good order. I appreciated the feedback on shipping and delivery dates. Hitch is well constructed. Welds are "text book" quality and the powder coating looks great. Bolted right up with no problems but required slight modification to the dual tailpipes as stated in the literature. I am very happy with my purchase. 37047

Your product was easy to install and works fine. However, one thing that I think would be a good idea, would be to include a set of installation instructions with the product. I didn't know that the metal tabs on the connectors had to be pushed all the way down before snapping the plastic hinge over the top of the tab. A friend of mine informed me of that. 146842

  • How to Wire Taillights on 2007 Chevy 5500 Cab/Chassis Flatbed As Spearately Wired Taillight System
  • To make this operate, you will need the Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter, part # 118158. The converter will split the directional and brake light signals onto separate circuits. The standard lighting circuits from the vehicle enter the input side of the converter, green wire for right directional/brake, yellow wire for left directional/brake, brown wire for running lights, white wire to ground. On the output side, the wires serve the same function, but the red wire will carry the...

  • Recommended Trailer Harness for 2003 Ford F-150
  • If your 2003 Ford F-150 came from the factory with the 4-Way flat connector, then your truck already has a towing package wired in. In this case I would recommend 7-Way connect part # 118242. A 7-Way will allow you to tow trailers with 7-Way wiring systems and brakes. You can still use it with 4-Way trailers by using an adapter like part # 47345. Built into this adapter is a circuit tester to make sure truck wiring is hooked up properly. If you strictly want to use a 4-Way, then the...

  • Availability of a Trailer Wiring Harness To Fit A 1986 Nissan D21 Hardbody Truck
  • If you have the mid-year 1986.5 Nissan Hardbody that has the two large headlights rather than the four smaller lights on the older model, you can use the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118353, to install a 4-Way at the rear of your vehicle. The # 118353 wiring harness will plug into the back of your vehicles taillights. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the # 118353 wiring harness. If your vehicle is not the 1986.5 or newer model, you will need to hardwire...

  • Installing Brake Controller 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • The Explorer Sport Trac models were not pre wired for a brake controller from the factory. Does the vehicle already have a 4-pole trailer connector? If not, you can install one using part # 18252. To install your brake controller we offer an installation kit, part # ETBC6 for a 6-way trailer connector, or part # ETBC7 for a 7-way connector. The install kit includes everything needed to complete the install, including an adapter to convert your 4-pole trailer connector to a 6 or 7-way....

  • Parts Needed to Install a Prodigy P2 Brake Controller in a 1995 Chevy 2500 Truck
  • There isn't a simple plug-in adapter that will allow you to install a brake controller in your 1995 Chevy 2500 pickup, but there is still a way to install this controller in your vehicle. First you will need a 4-way if you don't have one already. For that you would need to use the part # 18252. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7....

  • Trailer Running Lights Not Working When Connected to 4-Pole Harness # 18252 on 2007 Ford F-150
  • The first step for troubleshooting your 4-pole installation is to check that the lighting functions on the vehicle itself are operating correctly. This needs to be checked first since the part you referenced, Draw-Tite 4-Pole Hardwire Kit # 18252, relies on input signals from the vehicle lights to send output signals to the trailer. If the vehicle lights are not working properly you will need to get those fixed first. Once you have confirmed the vehicle light functions are all okay you...

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 1972 Chevrolet Pickup
  • We have everything that you will need to add a 7-way trailer connector and a brake controller for trailer brakes to your 1972 Chevrolet pickup. You will need a 4-Way Wiring Kit, # 18252, the 7-way and 4-way Installation Kit, # ETBC7, and a brake controller, I recommend the Prodigy P2, # 90885. The first thing to do is to install the 4-way wiring kit, # 18252. This kit includes a wiring harness with a 4-flat trailer connector, a circuit tester and 4 quick splices. To install this wiring...

  • Installing 7-way Trailer Connector on 2002 Chevy Blazer
  • The Hopkins # 30955 is intended for use on a full size GM truck or SUV that is equipped with the factory tow package. The connector would plug into an existing connector located at the rear of the driver's side frame rail behind the back bumper or above the spare tire as shown in the photo I provided. Unless it was equipped with a rare factory tow package, it is unlikely your Blazer will have that connector. If you're wanting to install the 7-way to tow a trailer equipped with electric...

  • Installing 4-Pole/7-Way Trailer Connector on Newmar Motorhome
  • There is not an off-the-shelf adapter that would convert your existing 7-way flat blade to a 7-way and 4-pole, but there are some fairly easy options for adding a 4-pole. You can access the wiring harness leading to the existing 7-way, and tap in a 4-pole harness like part # 18252, which would allow you to use both harnesses simultaneously. The connector includes a circuit tester which would help identify which circuit serves which lighting function. Another option would be to completely...

  • Instruction Manual Needed for a Tekonsha 2016 Hydraulic Brake Controller On a 1986 Ford F-250
  • The wiring diagram for wiring your truck to your trailer can be found on our wiring page (see link). We also have a brake controller wiring diagram on our brake controller wiring page (see link). If you are wiring a 7-Way connector I would recommend the # ETBC7 wiring kit which has all of the wiring, circuit breakers and parts needed to install the 7-way once you have a 4-Way installed on the truck. If you need a 6-Way connector then the # ETBC6 wiring kit will be what you need. You...

The brake controller wire functions are: White: Ground, attached to a clean piece of unpainted metal.
