Nice fit to my factory harness. This was a replacement for the factory hitch mount. I decided to drill a hole and mount in the bumper like I’ve seen on other vehicles. This makes for a convenient and protected location.

The etrailer.com web site provided an excellent description and several views of the product. The result being that I received the exact item I needed. This item was shipped via mail innovations so the package came to our local post office. The person doing the sorting made a mistake and the package was returned to sender. I called etrailer.com and explained that it was being returned. Even before the package arrived back at etrailer.com they had a replacement on the way. They did not charge me for the extra freight. They covered the post office mistake. 5 stars for customer service for sure.

2004 Nissan Titan

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.

Hi, I am a ASE Certified Automotive technician for 30-plus years. I have to say these parts are Factory quality, the option for Direct Fit everything plugs right into the wiring harnesses fits as if they came as original equipment with the vehicle and the same quality. When ordering parts if you call and speak to an operator that extremely helpful and actually know what's going on. And their tech support this extremely knowledgeable.

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.

Worked great. If you have a VW or Audi that has a factory hitch all the wiring is already installed. All You will need is a adapter for the brake controller.

The vast etrailer inventory enabled me to obtain the correct wiring harness part I needed with certainty. A part I had trouble finding locally and without it required more repair than necessary. With the etrailer product I was able to quickly make repairs myself with no trouble at all, thanks to the etrailer user experience that provides great product detail. One year later and many trips using the wiring harness I've had nothing but success with my most recent etrailer purchase.

  • Troubleshooting Electric Lockout on Trailer with Surge Coupler
    Your description of your trailer setup indicates that your surge coupler has an electric lockout feature to allow you to reverse the trailer without the surge brakes engaging. Some surge couplers use a manual lockout but yours has a solenoid with two wires (ground and hot) that take in the truck's reverse light signal; this closes the solenoid so no hydraulic brake fluid pressure can reach your brakes when you back up. Somewhere in your wiring you are losing your connection to the Silverado's...

    Your 2017 Chevy Colorado does not have a dedicated brake light circuit for powering a camper shell third brake light. Your best option would be to tap into your trailer wiring with the # 118158 and then run the red wire to the third brake light.

  • Troubleshooting Gooseneck Trailer Wiring Connection with Tow Vehicle
    It sounds like you have tested your truck with other trailers and your trailer with other trucks and have found the wiring circuits to connect and function correctly. This tends to suggest that there is just an issue between the two specific connectors. 7-way sockets and plugs like # PK11893 that you referenced and # A10-7W6 will vary slightly in their fit with one another so in some cases one or more circuits in the 7-way, such as the trailer brake circuit for example, may not make good...

If that is the case you can use the Mounting Bracket part # PK12711U and Curt No-Drill Bracket for 6-Way or 7-Way Round Trailer Connector Mounting Bracket part # C57202 to mount this to the trailer hitch.

  • Color Code for Tow Package Wires on 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Most GM trucks use a pretty standard wire color for their tow packages, but I always recommend testing for function, and not just color.

There's 7 for the trailer connector and 1 for a dedicated brake light circuit for adding a 3rd brake light on a camper shell. The wires on your 2002 Silverado should be as follows : White - ground Yellow - Left turn and stop signal Dark Green...

If you meant you also have a 6-way square plug on the trailer and the 7-way on your vehicle, I recommend the 7-way to 4-way adapter like # TR20141 and then using the Adapter 4 Way Flat to 6 Way Square for Jayco # 30104.

The ground will not have any voltage on it, or at least it should not unless there is a short to ground. The other wires will show power when the function associated with each one is activated (running lights, left/right turn and brake lights, reverse lights, 12 volt power which could be on all the time, and...
