Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 1997 Ford F-250

Today on our 1997 Ford F250 we'll be installing the Draw-Tite 4-pole hard wiring kit, part number 18252. You can see right here this vehicle does already have a 4-flat installed but it is all corroded up and not really working properly. We're going to go ahead and go into the wires here, go ahead and peel our protective coating back. We're going to go ahead and cut the wires off and then splice our new connector in using the quick splice connectors. We'll just be lining up color with color. We'll go ahead and trim our wires here, be able to remove the old 4-pole.

Because we don't need the amount of length that's here we're going to go ahead and trim this down a little bit. Go ahead and take our snips and cut it in half. Then go ahead and split the ends again so we can peel the wires back a little bit. We'll then go ahead and match up the color for color. We got white here. Once we have have our wires in position we'll go ahead and take a pair of pliers, squeeze the quick splice together.

Once you have it squeezed together, go ahead and close the cap. Next wire we'll do will be the brown wire. Go ahead and slide the wire in. With the wires in place again we'll go ahead and squeeze down the center section, close the locking tab. Go ahead and move onto our yellow wire.

Once it's squeeze we'll go ahead and close the locking tab. Finally we'll go ahead and connect our green wires. Again we'll go ahead and close the locking tab. Now before we tape everything back up we're going to go ahead and use a test light and make sure that it's all functioning properly. We'll go ahead and set it up there for now. Then we're going to go ahead and lower our truck down so we can go ahead and run the light functions.

Now we'll go ahead and start by using our test light. We'll put the ground on the open prong or the white wire. With our running lights on we'll touch the brown wire. Can see here that's working okay. Now we'll touch the yellow wire for the left turn, the green wire for the right turn, and the green or the yellow wire for the breaks. As you can see here, all of our functions are working just fine. Now that we've go ahead and tested our 4-way out we'll go ahead and tape up our connections. Now that we've got our wires all taped up we'll go ahead and put some of this wire loom back on that was already on the vehicle. Go ahead and add a little bit of tape to our loom just to keep our wires in place. This vehicle already has that 7-way connector on it so we'll be plugging our new 4-flat into the backside of it. Now before we do that we are going to add a little bit of dielectric grease, part number 11755, to the connection to give it a little more protection from corrosion. Once we have our grease on we'll go ahead and slide the 4-way connection together. With our connection pushed together we're going to go ahead and add a zip tie to make sure that it stays nice and tight. Go ahead and trim off any excess. Then all that's left to do, fold up any excess wiring and then we'll go ahead and use a couple zip ties to secure the wire off. With our wires secure we'll go ahead and snip off any excess zip tie. That will do it for the installation of the Draw-Tite 4-pole hard wire kit, part number 18252, on our 1997 Ford F250. .

First thing I noticed were the online videos that can be saved to a file. nice! also noticed the instructions for assembly of the tow bar was small and difficult to read, (my mechanic was crying throughout the installation) There were no instructions on the wiring kit installation, even a photo of the wire to wire color placement would have helped, but my mechanic went on line and got the photo from an outside source - thus the 4 stars, not five. - other than that it worked out very well, the products are solid, well made, and superbly engineered. everything was inside! thanks ! 611856

Only thing that needed to be changed was wire connectors. Type included with the plug are easy to install (no insulation stripping, just clamp) but are not reliable. Throw those away and use standard crimp butt splices. Plenty of wire included, so I cut to more convenient length, spliced, and taped 8 inches on both side of splice. Tester is a nice touch, save in your tool box after installation. 512720

Didn’t use this as the installation date/time was unfortunately on the same day as delivery. The outer female plugs were squished into oval shapes and would need to need a small punch to open to a round shape. The included light tester is nice but I would buy this less expensive piece at a local store in order to inspect it first. 473843

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F-250
  • Reese, Draw-Tite, and Hidden Hitch are all the same manufacturer so if you wanted to stick with that brand you could use # 41922 which will fit a 2001 Ford F-250 with a standard/step bumper. It is rated for 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight (12,000 when used with weight distribution). The B&W hitch # BWHDRH25230 will also fit models with the standard/step bumper. Since your truck has 16 inch tires and assuming the spare is the same or at least an 18 or smaller then you will not have...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Reciver for 2016 Ford F-150
  • I suggest using the Curt # C13118 for a trailer hitch receiver on your 2016 Ford F-150. This is a 2 inch, Class III hitch with a gross towing weight of 6,000 pounds and maximum tongue weight of 600 pounds. It includes all the necessary hardware to bolt it to your truck. I've linked an installation video for you. If you prefer a hitch that has a higher weight rating, the Curt # C14016 is a Class IV, 2 inch hitch rated at 10,000 towing and 1,000 pounds tongue weight.

The bumper is not a suitable place to mount this hitch but the frame rails are. If you would like to use a bumper mounted trailer hitch and you have a 4" x 4" bumper that the manufacturer says can be used for towing then you can use the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 instead.

  • As long as the width of the frame on your 2011 Forest River Cherokee 235B is between 22 and 68-1/2 inches (measured from outsides) the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # C13704 will fit and work well for you as it has a 5,000 lb trailer weight and 500 lb tongue weight capacity. To add a 4-way what you would need is the part # 18252.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 1999 Buick LeSabre
  • We currently only have one trailer hitch receiver for your 1999 Buick LeSabre which is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 36216. This option will give you a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. I have attached an installation video on a similar 1997 Buick LeSabre for you as well. If you can tell me what you will be using the hitch for I would be glad to offer some additional recommendations for you as well.

  • Tow Wiring Adapter Location For 2005 Ford Escape
  • I looked at the picture that you sent and that connector does not look like what the # 40455 plugs into. The connection point is located behind the bumper near the driver's side tail light. The connection location can be seen in the video of this product, it shows the entire install of the 2005 Ford Escape. The install location is shown at the 23 second point in the video.

  • 2003 Ford Ranger 4-Way Trailer Wiring Recommendation
  • If you really wanted to hardwire in a 4-way you could use the part # 18252 for trailer wiring in your 2003 Ford Ranger but we have a custom fit, plug-and-play option that will work much better and install a lot easier with the part # 118344.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F-150
  • There is a Draw Tite hitch available for your 2000 Ford F-150, but the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75096 that you referenced is designed to fit Ford Explorers and would not work for you. For your vehicle I would recommend the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75740. This hitch is compatible with your full sized spare too. I attached a picture of this hitch installed with the full sized spare in place as well as an install video and installation instructions for you to check out. To complete your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1964 Chevy C/K 20 4x4 and 2001 Ford F-350 Front Hitch
  • Although the Draw-Tite # 40050 is only for 1964 Chevy C/K 8 foot bed 2WD as you stated, there are other options available for your 4x4 truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75034 which is a fit for your truck if you have a standard bumper. If you have a deep drop bumper, then I recommend the # 41504. All of these hitch receivers are compatible with the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches...

  • Are Any Modifications Needed to Install Curt Class I Receiver Part # 11109 on 2003 Pontiac Sunfire
  • The CURT Class I Receiver you mention, part # 11109 can be installed by a person with average mechanical ability in a bit more than an hour. The only modification that would be required would be drilling to enlarge two existing bolt holes. There is no reason that a vehicle with a manual transmission cannot be used for towing. You will just want to use caution when starting on hills. Your owners manual should have information about the towing capacity of your Sunfire, you will not want to...

  • How Far is Receiver From Ground on 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix?
  • Your concerns about scraping the ground are certainly understandable, so I'm happy to help you out. The Draw-Tite # 36241 is going to be approximately 7-1/2 inches from the bottom of the receiver tube to the ground on your 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. In regard to custom mounts, that's essentially what these hitches are, having been designed specifically for makes, models and years of certain vehicles. There would not be any type of custom hitch specifically made to make the receiver higher. I...

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch and 4-Pole Wiring for 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
  • For the 1998 Chevy Blazer we have two sizes/classes of trailer hitch available from Draw-Tite and Curt. We have 1-1/4-inch Class II and also 2-inch Class III hitches. We generally always recommend the larger Class III type since it typically has a higher weight capacity and since there will be more accessories (like bike racks and carriers) made for this 2-inch size. The one I recommend out of all options on the linked page is the USA-made Curt # C13020 which I like for its easier no-drill...

  • Installing a 4-Way Trailer Connector on a 1988 Jeep Wrangler
  • The T-One wiring harness, part # 118356, is designed to fit newer Jeep Wranglers starting in 1991 but is not a confirmed fit on your 1988. The wiring harness for your Jeep is a hardwire and I recommend using part # 18252. It includes a circuit tester to find the correct circuits on the Jeep, as well as quick splice connectors to make splicing in a lot easier. I've linked a video of the harness being installed on a 1985 Monte Carlo SS (Because why not, right?) so you can see the process...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2005 Ford F-150 Long Bed
  • The Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 41549, that you have referenced will fit your 2005 Ford F-150 long bed. This hitch has a gross towing weight capacity of 6,000 lbs and a tongue weight capacity of 600 lbs. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Draw-Tite hitch. The # 51020 hitch is listed as a Pro Series hitch that fits 1997 to 2004 Ford F-150, so it is not designed for your 2005 vehicle. If you will be towing with this hitch I would also recommend...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with Brakes with a 2015 F-550 Box Truck
  • For a 2" trailer hitch receiver on your 2015 Ford F-550 I recommend going with the Curt # C15445. This has a tongue weight rating of 2,550 lbs and a gross trailer weight rating of 17,000 lbs. If the weight capacity of your F-550 is lower than these ratings then you will be limited by the weight ratings of your F-550. Please note that if you have a box truck that sits further out at the rear you may have trouble using the receiver. If you don't already have a 4-Way Flat connector then...

  • comparing Curt Class III and IV Trailer Hitches for a 2001 Ford F-150
  • The main difference between the Curt trailer hitch # C14355 and hitch # 13355, is capacity. Both hitches feature a 2 inch receiver. Both hitches will fit on your truck if it has a 20 inch or smaller spare tire. But the key is the weight capacity of each hitch. The Class IV trailer hitch, # C14355, has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds, and a gross trailer weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. When used with weight distribution, those ratings increase to 1,200/12,000 pounds. Keep in...
