Video Transcript for Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring HM40147 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Hopkins Endurance fifth wheel and gooseneck 90 degree wiring harness with the seven way plug. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 1997 to 2004 Ford F-150 and the F-250 light duty trucks with the factory seven way, and on any custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application. Now this harness will provide the seven way blade style connector in your truck bed for a hassle free hook up of your fifth wheel or gooseneck trailers. The connector head on the harness is designed, as you can see, with a 90 degree angle, so it'll fit into tight spaces in your truck bed side rails. On the seven way connector, the lid on it is a nice durable lid with an oversized hinge, opens 180 degrees for an easy connection.When you do install this harness, it will allow you to retain the use of the factory seven way connector at the rear of your truck.

This does install very quickly and easily. There's no cutting or splicing required. Basically what you'll do is take this T-connector portion, plug this into the factory wiring harness, and also into the vehicle's factory installed seven way connector at the back of your truck. Then you'll have a ground wire here with an islet on it. That you want to connect to a good clean ground.

Then you run this 10 foot long wiring harness from the bumper all the way up to the truck bed, take it up to the side, and you'll have this installed in your truck bed. All you have to do is just line it up and plug it right in, and then your seven way will be all ready to go.If you notice also, on the seven way they do have enhanced weather proofing. It has this internal seal right up here so when the lid closes, it'll protect those terminals from any damage or any elements. The terminals are corrosion resistant, and they do use a rubber coated copper wiring. The seven way itself is constructed of extremely durable ABS plastic, and it does require a two and one-eighths inch diameter hole to be drilled in your truck bed for this to install in.

That does include everything shown here. The harness, the seven way, and includes the four self tapping screws to install this into your truck bed, some nylon ties to take up any slack in the wiring, nice set of detailed instructions and even a couple packets of dielectric grease or terminal grease. That grease you want to use anytime you plug in any connectors. You put some grease on it before you plug them together. Neck grease will help protect it for any rust or corrosion.

Again, the specs on this, the harness length is 10 feet. The wire gauge is in this harness. The purple, green, yellow and brown wires are 16 gauge, and the blue, red and white wires are 12-gauge.That should do it for the review on the Hopkins Endurance fifth wheel and gooseneck 90 degree wiring harness, with the seven way plug.

Looks nice in the package but the search tool told me this would fit my truck and it doesn't. Etrailer was helpful in getting a return label to me and finding the correct harness. Only thing that would have been nice if they would have waved the shipping on the new one for the hassle of there webpage mistake. That's the only reason I'm not giving more starts. 415137

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


The Curt Q20 with R20 slider hitch arrived just as promised in 3 days after placing the order. The Q20 head box was totally destroyed. The manufacture packaging was not made to ship individually using small package carrier such as UPS. Upon inspection I discovered that the bolts and washers were missing. I contacted Bill at E-trailer and told him. He explained that the replacements would have to come from the manufacturer and would take several days. I told him that I already scheduled an install and really needed those bolts and washers. He was able to round some up for me and shipped them out next day and they arrived on Monday just as promised. I also spoke with Bill about not being able to remove the head unit for the hitch. It needed to be removed to be able to install it on the slider. It seemed to be stuck and I could not budge it. I assumed that it may have been damaged in shipping, especially after receiving it in a demolished box. He explained to me that since it was new its tolerances were tight and I might try taking a pry bar to it. Well that did not make me feel real good. He was totally correct. Just a little more effort with a pry bar moved it just enough for the bushing to squeak loose and the head came right out. I am disappointed in the jaws on this unit. They look like they were forged by a 3rd grader. Not smooth and somewhat pitted. They are not machined jaws for sure. Had it all installed using the new Reese rail brackets for the 2017 F250. Everything went smooth. An added plus is the quiet ride when not connect to trailer. Can’t even notice the hitch is back there. My other hitch rattled and clanked all the time and was so annoying. I just hooked my 38ft 5th wheel for the first time. It was smoother and easier than any other hitch I have ever used. I bought the sider unit which is recommended by all for the short bed. However I cannot use the slider as the king pin box slides too close to the tall tail gate. The new 2017 F250 is taller and the bed is deeper so I needed a hitch that would go up to 19 ½ inches. I will update after a my first run with trailer later this month. Everyone at E-trailer was outstanding. 5 Star. I will keep using them in the future. 303440

Exactly what I needed. The Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel 90-Degree Harness is truly plug 'n play. Once you decide on the truck bed location for the new 7-pole plug and drill the hole the rest is simply snap together and you're done. The new harness fit perfectly with the factory 7-pin connector and had plenty of length to allow for the new plug to be mounted conveniently in the truck bed wall. No more cable hanging out over the tailgate. 95342


Comments

I have used the Hopkins Endurance 90-degree harness monthly over past year since installation. I have also used the factory bumper 7-pole plug as my towing needs required. Both connectors work every time indicating a solid fit and good contact between the factory 7-pin connector and the added Hopkins Endurance connector. Very pleased with both ease of installation and performance.

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


It's actually long enough! 2014 Ram 2500 crew cab long bed w/factory hitch, and I installed this plug in the *front* corner of the bed. Have a truck camper, and its trailer plug is in the front left (driver's) corner. The cord is only about 2' long, so I needed to install a plug in the front of the truck bed. Before ordering, I measured from the factory plug at the trailer hitch over to the rear corner of the bed, then made a 90 degree turn and measured up the frame to the front of the bed. From there, took another 90 degree turn and went vertically to where the plug would hopefully be in the bed. About 12'. Since 10' is the longest I could find, I thought that perhaps I could run the cable more directly and shave off a few feet, and it ended up working. Far easier than custom building a wiring harness. The final installation route went across the top of the spare tire to the back of the fuel tank, then along the frame until reaching the front of the bed. From there, it traveled up to where the new plug is installed in the bed. There were plenty of points along the way to secure the cable with zipties so it's neat and tidy and not apt to get caught on anything like the rear suspension or spare tire. The cable ended up having a bit of extra length, not much, but a little ... I was glad it wasn't pulled taut! The install was simple and pretty painless. As others have noted, the zipties that come in the package are a bit too small to really be useful. 437034

Bought this harness for our new Ram 3500. The local RV repair place wanted $250.00 to splice into my truck's harness, but I elected to get this custom harness. Gave me an excuse to buy a hole saw, and after watching the video, I was able to successfully install the harness in a little less than an hour. The connections are solid, the cable was easy to route, and the end result is cosmetically and functionally excellent. The harness was long enough to be able to choose among several routing paths. I was happy that they included dielectric grease, and was also happy that I had a stash of self-tapping screws in my parts box, because one wasn't included in the product package. You need a self-tapping screw to attach the ground to the truck frame. This could result in a trip to the hardware store if you don't happen to have some sitting around. The other item you will need is some longer zip ties. The ones included in the package are small, suitable for tying to a small hose, another wiring bundle, or an existing frame mounting point, but having longer ties will make the job easier, especially if you need to get creative with routing. As always, great service from etrailer.com. It is a real pleasure to deal with these folks. 202738

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


I bought this harness a couple of months ago, but being winter, I am just now getting outside to install it. The item appears to work exactly as described. The instructions could be more detailed. For instance there is a white wire with a screw connection hole which was not mentioned at all in the instructions. I assumed it to be a ground wire and grounded it to the frame of my truck. But the 90 degree aspect of the harness is great. It let me put it in a tighter spot. It probably took me a total of less than an hour to install it. What instructions there were, were accurate and made it simple. I plugged our 5th wheel into the new outlet and all was good. Then plugged the 5th wheel into the outlet at the back of the truck where the original connection was. Also good. So I have an in bed connection for the 5th wheel and a below the tailgate connection for a bumper pull. Could not be happier. Well, actually, I am happier about something than the item. I am extremely happy about my dealings with Etrailer. It shipped almost instantly and arrived sooner than I could have imagined. As it turns out, I was not in a hurry (obviously), but I could have been. And if I had been, it would have been awesome to have gotten my item that quickly. Thanks guys/gals. 172847

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


I purchased the Hopkins wire harness 48265 based on positive reviews. This is going on a vintage camper trailer that we rebuilt the back end. The back sheet metal that the tail lights mount to was replaced with new sheetmetal. Old wiring was routed to back and new sheet metal was installed, then lights were wired. I wanted to use a sheet of silicon seal on tail lights and that causes a grounding issue. So now ground wires will have to be run to frame. Since back sheet metal has to come back off, decided it was time to replace the wire system. Since it is hard to get at the wiring for the tail lights, it was important for me that I use a quality harness. This harness had the 18 gauge wire with 16 gauge for ground. Some harnesses were 20 gauge wire and reviews for those was described as cheap and concerns that it wouldn't last but a few years. Everything I read about the Hopkins 48265 was positive. If the wire set is as good as the quick attention I received fron Etrailer, I m sure it will be 5 star. Thanks to the people at Etrailer. Kev 336902

I bought this socket for my 2006 Volvo Xc90 to wire in the 4-Pole harness I also purchased from etrailer. Already had a few 7 Blade to 4-Pole adapters from my previous vehicle, and wanted the option of adding a trailer brake wire for a small camper later on so that was the main reason for the purchase. It also went very well with the Hidden Hitch I had already installed, bracket mounted right up to the existing tabs on the hitch. Super quick and easy install, as all of my etrailer purchases have been. Looks great on the truck, and functions great with the 180 Degree cover. 432535

I received the Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector pretty quick. I had ordered one through another source, but had to return it because it was the wrong one. Then I searched on google and found etrailer.com. After a little bit of searching on their site, I found this connector. They had great pictures and they were accurately-sized so I could see that the attachment holes to the frame of my 2005 Fleetwood Discovery RV would line up exactly. It matched up perfectly and installed in just a few minutes. The package was missing one nut, but that was no big deal as I quickly found a replacement. 223030

Worked for me. I used the six wire even though I only hooked up 4 for the toad. The RV 7 blade allowed me to bring a power lead to the toad if I ever need it for charging or power the Aux Brake unit. The bracket could be rotated in any direction and I found the best way was to rotate 90 degrees and install to the base plate. My toad grill made for a tight fit for both break-a-way switch and light connector, but they fit side by side with the addition of an L bracket for the break-a-way. The wiring connections seemed solid and water tight. Wired correct 1st time, No Problems. 80814

I could not find a 7 round with a 5 flat connector anywhere in San Diego. Most of the people I spoke with at trailer shops or RV stores said no one makes it only with a 4 flat connector. I just kept looking because I needed one with a 5 flat for my boat and didn't want to keep using my adaptor. I found etrailer and the rep I spoke with was very knowledgeable and said he had exactly what I was looking for and it was a great price.

This plug works great once it is wired in. The only problem I have with it is that it does not receive the wire in a way that makes it easy to assemble, and I'm talking about the housing at the rear of the plug. The connection points are very easy to make up. Once you finally get it all together. It is very durable and weather proof. 60183

etrailer gave excellent service. Shipping was prompt. Email followup was excellent. I needed a part to hook up to a Silverado 3500 with the wires to the bed already there (taped up at the front of the bed on the driver side) and didn't want to tap into the existing plug on the bumper. The L Shaped bracket is easily detachable so that the plug can be screwed directly into the sheet metal of the truck bed once a hole is cut. However 2 things....the unit comes with nuts and bolts so get ready for a trip to Home Depot to get some sheet metal screws of some sort for most installs in the bed. Second, the holes that the screws must go in are hex shaped which is great for the bolts that come with the unit but not for sheet metal screws so be sure and get screws with a small enough head to countersink into the holes or with a big enough base so as not to sink into the hex shaped holes. 103078

Before I start I want you all to know I am not good at anything with wires or water, period. I had an old 4x8 trailer that needed to be re-wired. I was not looking forward to screwing it up which was inevitable If I touched it. But, I need the trailer for the July 4th weekend so by chance I ran across your site. I found the video on how-to rewire a trailer. Though you made it look easy *I* would be attempting this! Okay, the project took a bit of time since I questioned everything twice (about an hour) but I have to say, IT WAS NO PROBLEM re-wiring the trailer. The 4-way trailer harness is much better than the harness I had on it and the whole project was actually fun to do (and I hate this type of stuff). I love the quality and really love the connector 'cap', even though the trailer is garage kept. Thanks for the products and the video assistance, it was easy because of you! 84151

The female connector is attached to the swing arm of a motorcycle to provide lighting lighting for a trailer pulled by the motorcycle. This means that there is likely much more movement in the harness than for an automotive application. I've never had a problem with any part of the harness. I found this product to be exactly what I wanted, well made and easy to install. The protective cap functions well as it remains pliable (flexible) after a year of use, and while it has never fallen off in use, it is easy enough to remove before making the connection. It has done the perfect job of keeping mud and other detritus out of the contacts. The recessed nut holders also function well and is one of the reasons I chose this wiring kit. This wiring kit gets high regard and recommendation from me. All of my purchases from etrailer have been solid products delivered at reasonable cost. 247083

This product its awesome !!! After a silly mistake on my end I broke the OEM Connector on my 13' Mercedes GL450, called the dealer and was told the connector doesn't sell individual and I had to order the Towing Kit (Over $900 !!!) decided to take my chances on aftermarket products. Began by ordering part# PK11893-11933 from etrailer.com only to discover that the mentioned part worked fine but it didn't fit properly on the OEM Bracket (You had to drill new holes) when taking the plug out to disconnect it I broke the pin so sadly I couldn't sent it back for a refund. Still, I was determinate to find a perfect fit, so I ordered this part from etrailer.com and this time I got it right. The part fit perfectly and you can even use the stock screws, also the part its rugged and you can tell its a great quality product. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks etrailer.com 180394

How good is free shipping, our Order was placed about 8pm est on Thursday Jan 19th, and arrived Jan 25th before I returned from work at 4pm. Just sold the F-150 I installed the previous B&W fifth wheel hide a ball hitch in. Love this hitch set up, after arriving at a campground and unhooking the camper I have FULL use of the truck bed. Install of round two begins in the morning, directions are simple and easy to understand. George J from E-trailer has been keeping me updated with information about my delivery status and made himself available had I had any questions. Wife and I have been camping for about four years, on our second RV and now our third truck and have been totally satisfied ordering everything we needed from E-trailer over that time, (about 18-20 orders to date) adding to the great products E-trailer provides is the HOW TO DIY videos on many products. 338589

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


I loved the concept of a robust RV style plug with holder. Unfortunately the design is flawed to three different failure modes. My trailer has the heavy duty, 7 conductor wire used in larger trucks. 1) The first failure occurred by using a too small a screw to hold the sides together. It's design is split down the middle with only the center screw to hold it together. Rain easily gets inside the connector as the split shell design is too thin and opens up at the slightest change of cable angle. 2) The screw strips easily as well. 3) The blade connectors inside the plug are not well retained and can slip back into the connector. This is especially exciting with the ground wire, as trailer brakes are important going down hill. I would not recommend this product and replaced mine with a cheaper, more robust design that I have used over the years. 426018

The biggest challenge for us was routing the backup wire from the taillight housing, through the body of the truck to the connector. the rest went together fairly easily. Seems to be pretty solid and looks much better than the loose pigtail connector it replaced. 446522

I received the product quickly and in perfect condition the packing was excellant. I installed the connector easily and quickly. I consulted the Gm wiring diagram and als found the wires for all the 7 connections. I had a tight spot within the bumper edge, but managed to find short bolts to attach the bracket in old exsisting holes. The rest was easy attaching the connectors and making sure all wires were through the rear enclosure and tightening them down. I tested the 4 wire connector with my boat trailer lights and it worked like it was designed to do. I LOVE the versatility of this connector. Thanks etrailer.com!! Great product at a great price. 14869

Installed the Hopkins muti-tow 7, 5, and 4 way flat connector this morning. I ripped the original connector that was attached to the bottom of the hitch receiver off when I was 4-wheeling into the Doll House campgrounds in the Maze District of Canyonlands a month ago. So, I cut a hole in the bumper and mounted the new Hopkins connector, cut off the old broken connector mounting bracket, and connected the factory wiring to the new Hopkins device. Hopkins product installed easily, looks great, is now out of the way, and has the flexibility of multiple trailer connectors when required. I am pleased with the product. Attached is a photo. 133981

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


Wow what a fantastic experience! It first started when I called to verify I was buying the right 5th wheel wiring kit for my 2009 Dodge Ram 2500. Nicky K was the salesperson that helped me out, she took the time to verify my order and she placed the order for me at that point, I chose the two day delivery option and it arrived on time as she promised. The endurance professional grade 5th wheel wiring kit part # 42137 was so easy that it took me only 45 minutes to install from start to finish, and most of that time was Running the wire from the bed location to the back of the truck where the factory 7 pin receiver is located. this kit is truly plug and play!! If I could do this in this amount of time and not have any problems then anyone can do it. I would definitely recommend this company and this product to all my family and friends. 217333

I am enclosing 2 photos of trailer connector I purchased from etrailer. I have a 1995 Dutchman popup trailer. It had a 6 way round connector which would not fit my 2010 F150. By using your trailer connector diagrams, I was able to determine Dutchman was using white for the ground, blue for brakes, black for battery, brown for right turn/brake, red for left turn/brake, and green for tail lights. I replaced the 6 way with your 7 way connector. 99746

I needed to rewire the " speghetti " wiring mess that trailer companies installed on my truck. What a mess but Doing business with etrailer was a wonderful experience. I ordered a a 5th wheel trailer wire kit to plug into OEM connector and a bumber 7 pin connector kit for my F250. All was Plug and Play. Took less than and hour and all lights, brakes, aux. everything worked perfect and first time. I now have a very clean, professional wiring. Looks better than factory installed. Also all the LED lights I ordered for the boat trailer fit perfect and looks great. Very satisfied customer. Trailer Wheel and Frame is 10 miles away but I will be getting my trailer parts from etrailer from now on. Great Service and follow through on the order. I was notified and in the loop every step on the order and delivery process. Thanks again 83371

Ordering could not have been easier. Product was received in two days. Fit and finish of the product is excellent. Instructions were easy to read and installation was simple. Shipping was about 60% of what was originally quoted when ordering so that was a nice plus. This product looks like it will last a long time. 102735

Great product! Now we can plug in our RV and not have to worry that the cable is rubbing on the tailgate wearing away the paint. Our truck is a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD and we our going to be traveling 24/7 and now no worries about new paint being damaged by cable rubbing on tailgate while driving. 136700

Had everything you need. Be careful tightening the terminals, they bend easily so you may short one to another. Otherwise good bang for the buck. I would buy again. 116423

The installation of this item on my truck took a total 30 minutes. It was so easy that I could not believe the project was done. The package is so complete and that allowed me to place it right where I needed it to be in the truck box. Thank you for the service. 68066

How why did you choose the location in the truck bed?Now that youve been using it in this location do you feel that this is still the best location???Thanks! David.

Reason for this site used is because it fit well there was convenient and was out of the way. Also most factory installs are in that location for fifth wheels.

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


I had broken my factor connector on my 06 Tacoma, frankly due to a poor design placement by Toyota in my opinion, however I was not going to pay a premium $200+ price for a new OEM part and I wasn't planning to place it back in the original spot to only get broken again. This is a great replacement plus I no longer need a wire adapter. The unit fit perfectly in pre-cut hole that held my left tag light. Only had to drill 4 small holes for the bolts to secure to the bumper. Only pain was cutting the old wire and attaching it to the new connector, but that only took 10 minutes top. 116271

What a good buying experience on my B&W gooseneck hitch and towing accessories for my Toyota Tundra. First of all, the pricing was good on all my items. Second, free shipping. Third great customer service and recommendations during the purchase process and then followup at shipping. Next day I realized that I had forgotten to get a suspension enhancement item I also wanted so called back. No problem, they would add it to my original shipment for just $x.xx extra. All the items arrived very well packaged. Based on etrailer.com's great videos on 'how to install on YOUR particular vehicle' series, I was able to install all the components myself. I would not have attempted the hitch without that video so I saved a bunch there due to their video's. THANKS etrailer.com!!! 312539

I rewired my light bar for my boat trailer with the items I purchased. Before I built the the light bar, every time I used my boat trailer I would waste valuable sailing or fishing time repairing faulty lights. The do not last long when you submerge them in salt water.

Review from a similar Hopkins Endurance in Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring


I purchased this 7 blade connector to replace part 47435 (6 pole round to 7 blade (trailer)), which was allowing the whole cable assembly to droop close to the ground, and was fatiguing after four years of use. This new unit was easy to wire and install, however I wish to point out that the molded markings for the various wires (RT, LT, TM, GD, BR, etc.) are exactly backwards from the way the device is supposed to be wired. This was evident when I finished the installation and observed the turn signals were reversed, and nothing else worked (as a result of blown fuses). Once I corrected the wiring, everything works fine. Use the wiring diagram which comes with the instructions and not the molded pin markings on the device. 275789

  • Equipping a 1997 Ford F150 Flareside for 5th Wheel Towing
  • A truck with a stepside or flareside bed (as Ford calls it) won't generally work for fifth wheel towing because of the narrowness of the truck bed. The sides of your pin box would collide with the top of the bed sides during turns beginning when the trailer is about 40-45 degrees to the truck, not very far in other words. Reese tells me that they have heard reports that using a Sidewinder replacement pin box that locks the pin box together with the fifth wheel hitch and moves the point...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Truck Bed Wiring Harness for 2004 Ford F-250 Crew Cab
  • The correct Hopkins wiring harness for your 2004 Ford F-250 Crew Cab is the # 40167. This will have the correct connectors to adapt your factory 7-way on your F-250 to provide you with a 7-way in the bed of your truck too. The # HM40147 you were looking at is designed for the F-150 models. I have linked an installation video of this connector being installed for your convenience.
