Tekonsha Wiring - 22550

Install a 7-way, RV-style trailer connector on your vehicle with this easy-to-splice harness. ModuLite draws power directly from the battery to avoid overloading your vehicle's circuits. Brake controller wiring harness included.


Features:

  • Provides a 7-way, blade-style trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights
    • Compatible with 4-pole, 5-pole, and 6-pole adapters (sold separately)
  • Splices into vehicle wiring
  • Ensures that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer with included ModuLite
    • Powered module connects directly to battery to avoid overloading vehicle's electrical system
  • Includes harness with 4-pin connection point for plugging in a brake controller wiring adapter (sold separately)
  • Supplies required fuses, wire taps, and additional hardware
  • Constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire


Specs:

  • Maximum amperage:
    • Stop/turn lights: 4.2 amps per circuit
    • Tail lights: 7.5 amps per circuit
  • 1-Year limited warranty


ModuLite Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module is built into this wiring harness. Because most trailers run on a 2-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on 1 wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicle's 3-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your vehicle operate.


With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 22550 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Universal Seven-Way ModuLite wiring harness and brake controller harness. Now this kit will provide this seven-way blade-style trailer connector at the back of your vehicle, to power your trailer signal lights. It is compatible with four-pole, five-pole, and six-pole adapters that we do sell separately on our website. This kit does splice into your vehicle wiring. The ModuLite right here, this black box, this ensures that your vehicle's wiring will match that of your trailer. It is a powered module, connects directly to your battery, and that's to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system.

Also includes the harness right here, that has the four-pin connection point for plugging in your brake controller wiring adapter.This kit will include everything laid out here on the table, the body harness, the seven-way harness with the seven-way socket, the brake control wiring harness, all the fuse holders with required fuses to install it, wire taps, butt connectors, cable ties, and some additional installation hardware, and even gives you a nice set of detailed instructions that'll describe how to install it with pictures.Now the wire, it's constructed of a 16 gauge bonded wire. Few specs on this kit. The maximum amperage on the stop and turn light circuits is 4.2 amps per circuit, and on the tail lights, it's 7.5 amps per circuit.That should do it for the review on the Universal Seven-Way ModuLite wiring harness and brake controller harness.

Comments

The product and electronics are working fine. Disappointed in the finish of the actual hitch. It has rusted. The rear trailer interface has Rusted and the powder coat is chipping. I need to remove it and get it replated as it stands out against the paint. This should not happen after just about a year.

I wired this up myself with no previous experience. I took my time, planned out the job, and went good and slow because I didn't want to have to troubleshoot something that I knew little about. Because of my painfully slow speed and constant double-checking, the job took me a big part of the day, but it went together without any problems. I used heat-shrink butt connectors, and then after shrinking, I coated with liquid black electric tape. Have had zero problems. Directions were pretty good, although I had to google a thing or two that weren't clear enough for this rookie. Good product!!! 341754

Installed on my 1973 Dodge W200 to allow pulling trailers. I equip my trailers only with 7-way RV plugs to make life easier: no fiddling around with different connectors. I don't like trailer wiring faults to blow tow vehicle fuses and trailer faults are far more common than TV faults. This is the best retrofit kit I found. Pro: 1. relatively complete kit, 2. fairly easy to install for anyone with basic auto electrical skills, 3. wires plenty long Room for improvement: 1. should have a larger wire for 12V battery power (pin 4) any circuit fused for 30A should have at least 10AWG Cu wire; 2. brakes should be on a self-resetting circuit breaker vs. the supplied fuse (if the fuse blows in an emergency, you're sunk. A self-resetting CB will give you a chance to recover.) 3. No bracket supplied for the 7-way socket and none of the local parts houses had any that would substitute. I fabricated my own. Bottom line, my brakes work fine, the lights light up, and the breakaway brake battery gets charged. However, I hesitate using it to keep my camp trailer battery up, due to the light wire. 443908

  • Will the Tekonsha Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness Fit a 2018 Dodge Durango W/O Trailer Wiring
  • The Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness w Brake Controller Adapter part # TK22113 is specifically designed to be used with a 2018 Dodge Durango that did not come with trailer wiring. The harness offers almost an entirely plug and play installation that will not require you to splice any wires. If you also need a brake controller I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 as this is our top of the line best selling brake controller. The...

  • 7-Way and Easy to Install Brake Controller for 2005 Dodge Dakota
  • The 7-way kit part # 22550 could work for you to give you a functional 7-way but there's an easier way that's more plug and play for your 2005 Dodge Dakota. So you have to start with a 4-way which for that we have the custom fit Curt kit part # 55323 which is a confirmed fit and installs easily by plugging inline with your taillight connectors. Next you'll need to convert this to a 7-way which I have a really easy solution for that as well. So the easiest to install brake controller...

  • Towing Setup for a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • According to my research, your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon has a max towing capacity of 1,000 lbs if the trailer does not have brakes or 2,700 lbs if the trailer does have brakes. You can improve the towing performance/efficiency of your vehicle with a transmission cooler like part # D13503 but you cannot increase it's capacity. The tongue weight rating of 200 lbs is correct but I cannot recommend you go over this. In order to set your Outback up for towing a trailer with brakes you will...

  • Universal trailer wiring harness with brake controller harness # 22550 is a universal fit type of item so there are no vehicle specific installation instructions.

  • Will the Universal Wiring Harness # 22550 Fit on a 1985 Ford F-250
  • It sounds like you have a short somewhere on your trailer stop/turn circuits on your 1985 Ford F-250. The Universal Wiring Harness # 22550 will fit your pickup and provide you with the connector needed for a brake controller like the Prodigy P2 # 90885 if that is the route you are wanting to take. You can also check to make sure your current 7-Way connector is clean and free of debris as well as making sure your turn/stop circuits on your pickup don't have any shorts. By searching along...

  • Towing a Trailer with 7-Way RV Style Connector with a Semi-Truck with a Semi Style 7-Way
  • The 7-Way on a semi-truck is not the same as an RV style 7-Way and there isn't an adapter. What I recommend, instead of replacing the connector on the trailer, is to add the correct mating 7-Way on the truck. To do that you can hardwire in a 7-Way, # HM47210. For this 7-Way the white wire is ground, yellow is left turn signal and brake lights, green is right turn signal and brake lights, brown is the tail light wire, red is auxiliary power, blue is output to electric brakes, and purple...

  • Wiring to Add to Fifth Wheel Trailer to Double Tow
  • For wiring you would not want to use Harness # 22550; instead you will want to use 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # 277-000141 on your second trailer, using 10 Gauge Wire # 10-1-1 to run from the junction box to your brakes. On the rear of your fifth wheel you are going to want to use 7-Pole and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Sockets w/ Mounting Bracket and Wiring # HM40975-11998 as a way to connect the two trailers. I attached a picture showing which functions on your toy hauler...

  • Universal Trailer Wiring Harness For 1998 Range Rover
  • The Universal Wiring Harness w/ ModuLite and Brake Controller Harness, part # 22550 is designed as a hardwire kit that pretty much includes everything you need to install a 7-way trailer connector on your Range Rover. The module protects your vehicle wiring and gets its power right from the battery instead of drawing power through the vehicle wiring which means no stress on the vehicle wiring. I recommend using a circuit tester like part # 40376 and test the wires on your vehicle to...

  • Replacement 7-Way Wiring and Breakaway Kit for Hurst Trailer
  • If you just want to replace the trailer's 7-way blade-type wiring (but not all of its lights) you can do this most easily with a 7-way junction box like # 277-000141 or # ET7WK, both of which include a 7-way plug and cord. Kit # ET7WK also includes the necessary butt connectors and ring terminals, and wire loom too, so this will be the easier option. We also offer complete trailer breakaway systems, like the Hopkins Engager # 20099, that will activate your electric brakes in the event...

  • Lunette Ring Tow Bar Recommendation for Flat Towing 2004 Chevy Silverado
  • For a tow bar we have the Roadmaster Stowmaster part # RM-583 which has a 6k capacity and uses a 3 inch Lunette ring. So then for a base plate kit you'd want the part # 3115-1 for if you have a 1500HD, 2500HD, or 3500HD. If you have a 1500LD Z71 you'd want the part # 199-5 or part # 199-10 for if you have a 1500LD that's not a Z71. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight...

  • Will Wiring Harness Activate Rear View Camera
  • The Universal Wiring Harness w/ ModuLite and Brake Controller Harness # 22550 you recently installed will not send a signal to a rear view camera system; these systems activate off of 12 volt power and are triggered via its own 12 volt power circuit. In regards to the backup camera, we do have the parts you need, the Rear View Safety Backup Camera # RVS-770 along with the Rear View Safety Camera Extension Cable - 33' Long - Male/Female Connection # RVS-104N.
