Expert Answers about Pollak

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2016 Chevrolet Express 3500 Van
  • We don't have a 7-way to plug directly into the van but I do have an option for you. If your 2016 Chevrolet Express 3500 van had a factory 7-way and it needs to be replaced you can wire in a new one with a harness like # PK11998 and then connect it to a 7-way connector like # A10-7072VP or # HM40975. If there is currently no trailer connector at all you will first need to install a 4-way connector, # 31345. Once you have the 4-way you can use our # ETBC7 kit for a fully functioning...

  • Hooking a Gooseneck Trailer with RV 7-Way Plug to 1999 International 9100 7-Way Round Plug
  • The first thing that you need is the Pollak Trailer Connector Adapter # PK12-724 which converts the 7-Way round connector on your 1999 International 9100 to a 7-Way blade style connector. This will plug into your 9100 and provide a pace to connect the gooseneck trailer wiring. The next step is to then use the Roadmaster Brite-Lite Wiring Converter # RM-732 on your trailer side wiring right behind the 7-Way. This converter takes separate brake and turn signals and combines them so that...

  • Can a Brake Controller be Installed on a 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain
  • On your 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain, if it has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector at the back, there is a factory port to plug in a brake controller. You would use wiring harness # 3026-P. Then for a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. If your Acadia did not come with a factory trailer connector at the back then you can still install a brake controller by hardwiring it in. For that you would first need to install...

  • Does Pollak 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector have 12 Volt Hot Lead for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Yes, the 7-Way part of Pollak 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector # HM40975-11933 has a 12 volt circuit provided that the vehicle it is installed on has that circuit active. This part is designed to work with a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that came with a factory 7-Way. If your Jeep came with a factory 4-Way or no trailer connector then it is not likely that the 12 volt and any other circuit other than the lighting circuits will work. To add a 7-Way if the Jeep did not come with a factory...

  • Replacement Mounting Bracket For A 7 And 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket
  • Yes, the correct bracket you are requesting for the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket part # HM40975-11933 is our Replacement Mounting Bracket for Hopkins part # HM40978. This is a universal mount option that will allow you to place the bracket in any location you see fit. I have attached a product review for your viewing.

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way on 2017 Jeep Wrangler
  • The tow package for your 2017 Jeep Wrangler would have included a 7-way at the rear of it and not a 4-way which is why the # HM40975-11933 is not able to plug into your vehicle wiring. So while we have a solution for you it won't be with the part # HM40975-11933. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do have trailer brakes you would need the # ETBC7 instead of the # 37185 and a brake controller....

  • Can A 12V Charge Line Be Run From RV To Towed Vehicle Battery While Using 12V Outlet And Disconnect
  • Yes. A 12V charge line using # 10-1-1 wire and a circuit breaker like # PK54240PL will allow you to provide a maintenance charge to your battery while using the battery disconnect # RM-766 and supplemental 12V outlet.

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Electric Brake Controller to 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Since your 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has the factory tow package there should be a square plug for the Pollak # HM40975-11933 to plug into. This will work well to supply a 7-way trailer connector. If you need to run wiring to install a brake controller use # 5506. If you don't have the square connector you'll first need to add a 4-way using # 118416 and then convert that 4-way to a 7-way using our # ETBC7 kit. This includes the 7-way and everything you need for an electric brake...

  • Recommended 7-Way Wiring For 2015 Jeep Cherokee Without Tow Package
  • For your 2015 Jeep Cherokee, if you had the factory tow package, I recommend the Pollak Dodge/Chrysler OEM Plug Adapter # PK11933. Because you stated you didn't have the tow package, I have another recommendation. We will need to start with the 2015 Jeep Cherokee T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118605 which connects behind each of your tail lights, and then you will need to splice in the connector # PK11998. This will give you the 4-way trailer functions....

  • Wiring Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Wrangler
  • It sounds like you've created your own umbilical to go from the 7-way on your RV to a 7-way on your Jeep. The Hopkins connector # H20043 is 4 feet long, which isn't going to be long enough to bridge the gap of space for flat towing. You're going to need at least 6 foot umbilical. For a 6 foot 7-way molded cable use # H20044. We typically don't see 7-ways on the front of vehicles, for a great 7-way to 6-way umbilical with a 6-way (which is most common) connecter and mounting bracket I...

  • How to Make 5 Foot Long 7-Way Round to Blade Adapter
  • What you could do is make an adapter. You would need 3 main parts: 7-Way round trailer side, # PK11702, 7-Way blade vehicle end, # PK12-707E, and 4 or 5 feet of jacketed 7-Wire, # DW04914-1. Just change the quantity on the wire page to the amount of feet you want.

  • Recommendation for Charging Trailer Battery from Towing Vehicle
  • You can connect your deep cycle AGM 75AH trailer battery directly to your 7-way 12V power for a small maintenance charge. This normally will only give you about 2-4 amps charge because your vehicle is needing the other amps produced from your alternator to maintain your vehicle functions. Only what is not used by the vehicle is available for the trailer battery. This also will not allow a full charge to your battery but will charge it up to about 80% just like a trickle charger, where...

  • How to Power Third Brake Light of 2017 Chevy Colorado
  • 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.

  • Standard 7-Way Wiring For Vehicle Side Trailer Connection
  • I don't know which truck or trailer isn't wired standard, but it sounds like with multiple trailers working on your vehicle that your friend's truck and trailer are wired wrong, but to fit each other. I've attached a picture of what each of the 7 pins are set to function when set up with the standard configuration. I've also attached an article on trailer wiring to help. I suggest using a circuit tester like # PK12741 to help you determine if your truck is wired correctly and what function...

  • 4-Way Trailer Wiring Connector Recommendation for 2015 Porsche Cayenne
  • To install a 4-way on your 2015 Porsche Cayenne I recommend the ZCI kit part # 119250KIT as it installs without any splicing. 4-ways don't have doors so in case you have a 7-way and need an adapter to give you a 4-way you'd want the # PK12716.

  • Are Available 7-Way Connectors Wired for US Made Trailers
  • The 7-Way trailer wiring sockets we have available such as the Pollak Metal # PK12703 referenced in your question do indeed feature the standard US pin configuration. I have attached an image that shows the pin locations and functions that you can use for reference. This is a 7-Way for the vehicle end. For the trailer end you will use # PK12702. Keep in mind though that the actual wire color used on both the vehicle and trailer can differ. Because of this it is always best to test the...

  • 7-Way to 4-Way Adapter Recommendation for Pollak 7-Way
  • The Pollak 7-Way part # PK12-707E is a standard 7-way so for a 4-way adapter to fit it you'd just want the Buyers Products # 337TC2074P and you'd be set.

  • Troubleshooting Ground on Trailer Wiring on 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD
  • Most likely the issue you're having with your trailer lights not functioning is due to a weak ground. The tester you use on the truck's socket does not draw much power at all, nowhere near the current drawn by the actual trailer lights when the trailer is connected. This is why the truck tests okay but still does not activate the trailer lights. I suggest you locate and disconnect the trailer socket's ground wire on the Silverado. Sand off the grounding point to expose clean bare metal,...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Wiring Harness for 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • If you are referring to the actual wiring then you will want to use Pollak Wiring Harness part # PK11-934. This harness will require you to cut and splice but it would be the only option we have for you as we do not carry OEM parts. However, if you are referring to just the connector then you can use the Twist-in 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector part # PK11916 which install in the same position and way as the factory 7-way trailer connector on your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. I...

  • Connecting Ram with 7-Way Blade Connector to 5th Wheel Trailer with 7-Way Female Round Pin Connector
  • It looks like your Ram is equipped with a standard 7-Way female blade style connector but your trailer has a 7-Way round pin connector, specifically the female end which is usually on the tow vehicle side. Because of this unorthodox setup there isn't a single cable available that will connect the trailer to your Ram but we do have the pieces needed to do this. In order to connect your Ram to the trailer you can use a 7-Way loop like the Bargman # 50-67-210 and then an adapter like the...

  • Agricultural Type 7-Way Vehicle Socket for Trailers Using Round-Pin 7-Way Plugs
  • 7-way trailer connectors can be wired in several ways and heavy-duty commercial/agricultural round-pin 7-way wiring can be different too. Please refer to the linked image to see the different vehicle-side connectors and their common wiring configurations. To use your trailers that have plugs like # PK11702 with your F-250 you will need to install a socket such as # PK11720. A circuit tester like # ALL640595 will help you identify the function on each wire of the truck's existing 7-way....

  • Will 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket # HM40975-11933 Fit a 2018 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited
  • 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket # HM40975-11933 will fit your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK as long as it has the factory tow package. I am assuming that it does since it came with a 4-Way connector but it would be worth asking the dealer if it is equipped with the factory tow package. They can usually just run the VIN in their computer system to determine how a vehicle is equipped. If it does not have the factory tow package then to add a 7-Way you will need # ETBC7. I have...

  • 2 Pole Connector for Powering Trailer Battery and Trailer Liftgate
  • You don't have to use an isolator if you don't need one. If your plan is to unplug the trailer when not in use there would be no need to use an isolator. For a 2 pole socket for your vehicle we have the part # PK12801 and then for the trailer side we have the part # PK12800 which would be a great solution. I wish we had a fairlead or roller solution for your winch cable but at this time we do not.

  • 4-Way and 7-Way Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • For your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a factory 4-way trailer wiring harness the Pollak 7-Way and 4-Way part # HM40975-11933 that you referenced would be exactly what you'd need. This will replace the 4-way you have now and give you a 4-way and 7-way.

  • Circuit Breaker Needed to Provide 12 Volts to 7-Way Trailer Connector for Wireless Brake Controller
  • The Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller # 90250 needs a 40 amp circuit braker, part # 9510, to provide 12 volts to the 7-way trailer connector at the rear of your vehicle. You also may need 10 gauge wire, part # 10-1-1, which is sold by the foot. The remote will plug into your 12 volt outlet inside the cab of your vehicle. If you already have a 4-way trailer connector and not a 7-way, you can use the install kit # ETBC7 which will provide you with the 7-way, wiring,...

  • Parts Needed to Add Brakes to a 1995 Jayco Camper 1005
  • We have just what you would need. Thanks for getting me the bearing information as that allowed me to piece together what hub you would need. For a hub and drum you would want the part # 8-173-16UC3. This will fit your spindle and wheels as it has a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. For brake assemblies you would want the part # 23-48 for the right hand side and part # 23-47 for the left hand side. For a breakaway kit you would want the part # 20099. For a brake controller I would recommend...

  • Comparing Manual and Automatic Resetting Circuit Breakers for an Electric Winch
  • A breaker with a manual reset such as # PK54871PL should be used on any circuit that you do not want to automatically power back on. So for a really basic example let's say you had a circular saw that had an inline circuit breaker. An overload causes the saw to stop running. If it had an automatic rest breaker the saw would start back up without warning and that could be dangerous. Winches usually use circuit breaker blocks such as # SW90-22147. A winch can use an automatic resetting...

  • Trailer Wiring Upgrade for Dodge Truck from 4-Way to 7-Way to Pull Trailer with 7-Way Connection
  • For your friend's Dodge with 4-way flat, you will need the Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole # 37185. This will simply connect to the 4-way flat giving you the functions of running lights as well as brake lights and turn signals on the trailer. You will need to connect the grounded ring terminal wire for these functions to a bare metal surface. What it will not have unless you connect the remaining 3 wires on the adapter is the electric trailer brakes (blue wire), reverse lights...
