Video Transcript for Pollak Wiring PK11893 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number PK 11893. This is the Pollack replacement 7-pole RV style trailer connector. The replacement 7-pole sealed socket RV style trailer connector is made from a high impact nylon construction, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. It's also going to feature this spring-loaded lid with a stainless steel spring and runner gasket. That's going to prevent leaks when closed. It also features a drain slot that has an angled design for drainage if moisture was to get in there close to your connections points. It's also going to secure the trailer end connector inside the socket. Here on the inside we have the copper-plated terminals producing high conductivity and low resistance.

It's going to be sealed with silicone at the back of the socket, that's going to prevent moisture from contacting the mating connectors. Knotting bracket and hardware are available here at inaudible 00:51 .com, but they are sold separately. This is designed for Ford, Chevy and GMC and Nissan ODM sockets. It's going to give us a current rating of 30 amps with a volt rating of 12 amps. See here that is has the four mounting slots or four mounting holes. The distance from center to center going this way is going to measure one and three quarters of an inch. Center on center going this way is going to give us a measurement of two and a half inches. Back here at the rear of the socket it's going to give us a diameter of one and three quarters of an inch.

Then the larger piece of housing that the socket goes into is going to give us a whole diameter or it's going to give us a diameter of two inches. That's going to do it for today's review of part number PK 11893. This is the Pollack replacement 7-pole RV style trailer connector. .

The 3 star rating is because this is not a direct replacement for a Nissan Armada. I bought this to replace the original socket on a 2004 Nissan armada. The hitch on the car says it is a Nissan hitch. I did not notice that the original socket mounted as a twist lock type and the bracket had no mounting screws when I ordered this socket. In defense of the manufacture and distributor of this socket the description did not say it was a direct replacement for an armada the assumption would be that the hitch would be the same as a titan. This was no big deal for me since I had a drill and bits to drill mounting holes and used # 8 sheet metal screws. Just have to be careful to drill the holes the right size so they self thread properly. I have been looking to see if there is a direct replacement for the original socket but can't seem to find one not even on Nissan's parts web site so I guess you just have to do what I did. I didn't think to take a video of the installation but I have included a picture of the finished install. 272596

Thank you etrailer the oem trailer socket for my pickup arrived and I installed it and solved my connection problem. However the tracking information was useless, the first tracking # failed completely and the second one close to the same it showed my part was setting in Pontiac mi. For two days 18 miles from my house, estimated delivery was on sat, I received on friday obviously the post office had no idea where it was. To anyone purchasing products from etrailer or any one else - DON'T USE ECONOMY SHIPPING ! When usps and ups are both involved the usps will always screw up thanks again 152513

Used this on a 2014 Touareg since VW doesnt supply this with the towing pkg. Remove blank plate (4 screws), remove white lock clip from plug, squeeze lock tab on plug and pull to remove from blank plate. Reverse procedure and use 4 screws to install this item. Works great! etrailer has the best service around! 153303


Still working fine!

fits a 2004 Chevy Silverado just as adv ertised. 87524


This connector has been working fine. The only comment I would make is that the attachment hardware screws are rusting, so I intend to replace them with stainless steel replacements, but that does not effect the excellent functionality.

I needed to replace the 7-pole RV trailer connector socket on my F-250 Ford because of a broken cap. The Pollak was an exact replacement that fit perfectly into the previous factory-installed location. No re-wiring was required because the wiring assembly was within a cartridge that easily slid out and into the new socket (as shown in an installation video on the etrailer website). The construction of the Pollak is solid and the spring loaded cap with locking tab holds the 5th wheel trailer plug firmly into the socket while traveling. This is a good quality product for a reasonable price. 366951

Everything I order from etrailer has been exactly what was described and I have never had anything but good experience doing business with etrailer. I will always buy from etrailer because they have quality merchandise at a fair price. I gave etrailer 5 star rating because they ship exactly when they say an item will ship and it is always at my door sooner than estimated, always. In the world of today it is refreshing to do business with a company that does things the old fashioned way, they earn peoples business through courtesy and professionalism. 396090

I replaced the hitch receiver on my Express van and needed a new bracket and socket for the wiring. This plugged perfectly into the existing wiring and looks like a factory finished product. Neither the mounting bracket nor this socket came with the mounting hardware, and the extra trip to HD is why it got 4 stars. I bought a bag of four 10/32 x 3/4" stainless steel bolts and a bag of 4 stainless steel nylon locking nuts for under two and a half bucks and good to go. Stainless hardware costs a few pennies more but it won't rust out. 63529

This is the original plug and play. For VW SUV's this does the trick. I recommend using some anti-seize on the bolts that secure this into the mount. I have this on both an Audi and a Porsche both work great. The picture shows what the car some with so you simply plug this unit into the factory socket and secure with 4 machine screws. 279645

The front flip cover of the OEM trailer connector on my Chevy Suburban was damaged and would not hold the trailer cable plug. I searched the web and found Pollak Item PK11893 at It was an exact replacement. All I had to do was drill 4 holes in the OEM mounting plate and bolt the replacement connector in place. The Chevy wiring harness connector plugged into the back of the PK11893. It was an easy fix that took 15 minutes. 128492

My vehicle was pre-wired for trailering, but the plug was hidden behind a solid plate. It was not so easy to get to the wiring, to plug-in anything. This item solved the problem perfectly! It was exactly the right size, the holes for the bolts were perfect. It was a snap to install, just pulled off the old plate, plugged in the set of wires from the vehicle, then fastened it with the screws. Couldn't have been easier! 396228

Product is advertised to be an exact OE replacement on Chevy, Ford, GMC and Nissan. It is not; at least on my 2001 Chevy Silverado. The OE receptacle has a twist-lock connection to the vehicle's frame; this part does not have that. It required 1 - 4 screws to secure to frame. All the connections matched the OE connector, and the receptacle worked fine with the matching plug. 81415

This product fit my pickup perfect. This was a pollak replacement 7 pole RV-style trailer connector socket. Just like the one that came on my pickup. It saved me from having to splice my wiring. None of the local stores had one you didn't have to splice wires. I would buy from you again and tell my friends. 307655

Worked as expected. Our mounting plate on the hitch was slightly deformed so I didn't tighten our screws down all the way (afraid I would break this plastic part). It is fairly sturdy. This part replaced the exact same brand/part that had lost a battle backing into something we should have backed into. 366870

I'm sure this is a well-made product, Unfortunately, it does not match up with the wiring input plug on my pickup. I probably need to get the input that will fit into this product. I boogied up an emergency repair to get us through the Thanksgiving trip with our fifth wheel, though. 162525

Fit my 2002 Ford F-250 perfectly as a replacement to the old (I assume original) trailer connector socket. The spring-loaded protective cover broke on the original one so it would no longer hold the trailer plug in place. Installation took less than 5 minutes and it works great. 223212

  • To wire a 7-Way trailer connector at the rear of your 1994 Chevy pickup, you will need to start with a working 4-way connector, item # 118315, if your truck is not already equipped with one. You would then use the 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole Adapter, item # 37185, and plug in the 4-Way on the truck to provide the stop turn and tail light functions in the adapter. If you do not need the brake control feed wire, 12 volt power wire or backup wire for your trailer you can tie one or all...

  • How to Wire a Camper Shell Third Brake Light and Interior Lights on a 2011 Chevy Silverado
  • You are going to want to find the Center High Mount Stop Light wire for the brake light on the truck cap on your 2011 Chevy Silverado. This wire is bundled with the brake controller wiring located under the dash, and held together with tape and a tag that lists the wiring functions. The wire you are looking for is orange and will have a tag on it labeled CHMSL. For the interior lights, if they are on a switch, you can run a wire from 12 volt hot lead behind the factory 7-Way to the switch...

  • When Truck is Put in Reverse the Trailer Brakes Lock Up
  • Are you certain that you have the 6-way connector, like part # PK12720 with the 6 round pins? Or do you have the 7-way connector like part # PK11893 that features 6 blade-type pins with one connector in the center? The two can sometimes be confused. There are two possible reasons why the brakes are locking up on the trailer. If you have a surge or hydraulic coupler on the trailer, such as those typically found on boat trailers, the hydraulic brakes will lock up when the vehicle reverses...

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2010 Ford F-150 with Factory Installed 4-Way Flat Connector
  • To convert the factory 4-Way flat trailer connector on the back of your 2010 Ford F-150, you will need Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole, # 37185. You will plug the factory 4-Way into the back of the adapter and hardwire the remaining 4 wires. The white wire gets grounded to the vehicle frame. The blue wire on the adapter carries the brake controller output voltage, and the black adapter wire carries the 12-volt accessory voltage for any trailer mounted accessories that might need...

  • Recommended Hitch Trailer Wiring and Brake Controller to Tow Pop-Up Camper with a 2012 Jeep Compass
  • You son's Compass can be equipped to tow that pop-up camper, as long as its fully loaded and ready to tow weight does not exceed the towing capacity of the Compass, which is 2,000 lbs according to my research. For a hitch, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75712. You would also need a ball mount, part # 2753 and the appropriately-sized trailer ball, # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball. The coupler on the pop-up should say which size is needed. For...

  • How to Wire up a 7-Way Connector on a 1997 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton Cummins
  • I can help you wire up your OEM 7-way on your 1997 Dodge Ram HD, but you are going to have to do it by function and not by color. There is no industry standard for wire colors so your best best would be to use a circuit tester like part # 3808 and test the wires and run them accordingly to your 7-way. You would want a buddy to apply the different tail light functions of your truck while you test the wires with the circuit tester. There should only one wire that has 12 volts all the...

  • Trailer Running Lights Not Working When Using a 7-Way to 4-Way Adapter
  • It sounds like you have a 7-Way and are using a 7 to 4-Way adapter because the trailer has a 4-Way flat. If the running lights are not working with this set up, the first thing you will want to do is use a circuit tester, like # 3808 if needed, and test the vehicle side connector with no adapter installed in it. If the running light circuit is not working at the connector you know there is a problem on the vehicle side and you will need to trace the wiring from the trailer connector...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • I actually recommend that you use the Hopkins connector, # HM40975, because it comes with a 7-Way and a 4-Way and also comes with a bracket. The connection at the back is made to fit the factory harness on a 2003 Chevy Silverado that came with a factory 7-Way. I have included a link to a video that shows a typical installation for you. If you want to go with a regular 7-Way use # PK11893 and bracket # PK12711U.

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 1995 Ford F-250 with No Existing Trailer Wiring
  • For a 1995 Ford F-250 that never had trailer wiring you will first need to install # 118316. Then you can install the 4 and 7 way installation kit # ETBC7. The other option is to use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to determine the functions of the wires you have found and hardwire them to the ETBC7 by cutting off the 4-Way end and splicing on the truck wires. On the ETBC7 4-Way, brown is running lights, green is right turn and brake lights and yellow is left turn and brake lights....

  • 2005 Chevy Silverado 12 Volt Trailer Battery Wire for a 7-Way RV Connector
  • In the under hood accessory fuse block there are two power posts on the engine side of the block. The post closest to the front of the truck should have a wire connected to it that runs back to the factory trailer connector and provides 12 volt power at the 1:00 position as you have stated. If there is not a wire present at this location, you may need to run a 10 gauge wire and splice it into the black wire at the back of the vehicle to provide power. If the wire is there, you should...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 1993 Ford F-150
  • If your 1993 Ford F-150 already has 4-Way trailer connector, all you will need is the 4 and 7 way installation kit # ETBC7 to add a functioning 7-Way to your truck. This also provides the wiring for a brake controller. I have included some links that explain the ETBC7 installation. If you already have the 7-Way connector that you want to install, then you will need to hardwire it in. Use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to determine the functions of those 5 wires that you found....

  • Finding the Third Brake Light Wire on a 2013 GMC Sierra 2500HD for a Camper Shell
  • There may be a wire loom under the truck, above the spare tire with some tow package wires in it. If you cut back the loom often times there will be 2 additional wires. The Light Blue wire provides a lead for a camper shell brake light. The other, a Light Green wire, is for the reverse lights. To make sure you have found the correct wires, use a circuit tester like # 3808 to test the wires. If this wiring is not present, to add a third bake lamp you would need to tap into the turn...

  • Left Turn Signal On 7-Way Trailer Connector is Not Working
  • It is possible that there is a blown fuse or relay related to the tow package wiring that is causing the problem. Use the vehicle owners manual to find the locations. It is also possible that there is a break in the wire somewhere. You will need to use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to test the wire as you work your way forward on the truck. If the right side stop light also does not work it could be a blown stop light or CHMSL fuse. If the turn signal function works on that...

  • How to Determine if a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD has Factory Installed 7-Way Wiring
  • On your 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, you will need to look above the spare tire for a round plug with a cap on it. I have included a picture below that shows what the plug looks like. If your truck has this plug, then it has the wiring for a 7-Way. To add a 7-Way trailer connector at the rear of the truck, you can use Pollak Replacement 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector Socket - Vehicle End, # PK11893. The factory harness from under the spare tire will plug into the back of this connector....

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2009 Ford F-250
  • If you are looking for a replacement 7-way trailer connector for your 2009 Ford F-250, you can use either the Tow Ready Replacement Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4-Way Connector, # 74682, or the Pollack Replacement 7-way Socket, # PK11893. Keep in mind, these will only work if your truck came with a factory 7-way connector and you are simply looking for a replacement connector.
