Video Transcript for Reese Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 85219 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for the factory tow package. This is a 7-way US car end connector. This will easily plug into the factory equipped car end socket on your Dodge, Ford, GM, Jeep, Nissan, or Toyota vehicles, has a nice weather-tight gasket and cap right here. This will allow remote trailer wiring in your pickup bed or other hard to access areas. It is an exact replacement of the OEM connector. The hardware's all included, the four screws and nuts and washers that'll install this onto your mounting plate with the two screws that'll hold the mounting plate to your vehicle.

This is built to the OEM standards. If you notice on the cap itself, it has a nice heavy-duty, stainless steel spring end pin to give you a long, usable life. Again, it comes with the mounting brackets that you use to attach this to the vehicle. That should do it for the review on the Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a factory tow package.

Connector fit perfectly to OEM wire harness. Had to drill one new hole for the mounting bracket. Not sure the one on there was original though. Only gripe is the mounting screws for the bracket are wimpy. I used some beefier screws to mount the bracket. 597294

  • Wiring Replacement 7-Way Connector on 2004 GMC Yukon Denali
    I was able to track down an online version of the owner's manual for your 2004 Yukon Denali and it listed the following wiring configuration for the factory 7-Way harness at the bumper: Yellow: Left Stop/Turn Signal Dark Green - Right Stop/Turn Signal Brown: Tail/Running Lights White: Ground Light Green: Back-up Lamps Red: 12V Power Dark Blue: Trailer Brake The Reese Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector # 85219 that you referenced will work well as a replacement.

  • Replacement Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector on 2007 Toyota Tacoma
    This is for Toyota Tundra and plugs into the truck's wiring. To replace your factory 7-way connector you will want # 85219. If the truck's wiring is also damaged and needs to be replaced then you can use # PK11998.

  • 4-Way and 7-Way Recommendation for 2014 Tacoma TRD Off 4x4
    What you would want is the part # HM40975 which fits the same round connector that the part # 85219 fits. As long as your truck has the round harness that the # 85219 would fit this would fit and work well for you.

  • Recommended Plug and Play 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller for 2015 GMC Sierra 1500
    GM actually uses the # HM40975 as the OEM trailer connector, so that's what I'd recommend you use. The connector will plug into the socket located above the spare tire. You'll need to free the connector from the frame member and uncoil it so it will reach the rear bumper. The truck is indeed pre-wired for a brake controller. To complete the installation, you'll need brake controller and the vehicle-specific wiring harness. I'd highly recommend the Tekonsh P3, part # 90195. The P3...

  • 7-Way to Replace Rusted OEM Bracket on 2007 Chevy Silverado
    The Pollak 7-Pole connector # PK11916 is made for twist-in installation on OEM bumpers. We do not offer the metal OEM bracket part that this item fits into but that might be available at a dealership. What you can use is 7-way socket # 85219 which includes both a separate mounting bracket and hardware along with a 7-way socket that will connect to the existing harness on the truck.

    If you are looking for a brake controller installation harness for the Hopkins InSIGHT Flex-Mount Trailer Brake Controller you can use their harness # HM47715 which is a direct fit for the 1999 F-350 that has a factory 7-way. The included video shows installation in a 2001 Super Duty. The photo shows the gray under-dash connector it plugs into. We also offer many types of trailer wiring harness for your 1999 Ford F-350.

  • Can Reese 7-Way # 85219 Fit as Replacement for PK11916
    Both the Reese 7-way part # 85219 and the Pollak # PK11916 use the same round 7-way wiring connector and would fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado. The advantage to the Pollak for your truck is the twist lock style of fit that allows it to fit right into the bumper mounting location on your truck for a cleaner install. The Reese would fit but would require drilling the bracket to the bottom of your lower bumper. From a wiring and connector standpoint the two are identical.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer 7-Way Connection Between 2004 Chevy 1500 and 2015 Ford F-150
    The Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, 7-Way # 118242 is the correct harness for certain Ford F-150 models from 1997 to 2004. It uses factory specific plugs and then connects to a US Car connector at the 7-way and that portion is universal yet the t-connector is not. It sounds like you have a trailer that works on one and not the other and the issue with that situation is normally a ground issue on the trailer itself. Check the main ground near the coupler or battery...
