Video Transcript for Pollak 7-Pole RV-Style Trailer Connector Review

Today, you're going to be taking a look at the Pollak mounting bracket and installation hardware for a seven pole RV trailer connector. Part number PK12711U. Our universal mounting bracket is going to allow us to mount up a seven way or a nine way connector on the back of our towed vehicle. The bracket itself is going to be a writing or bracket. So it's going to have that small section where we can either go directly into the bumper or do a no-drill application with an additional bracket that is sold separately.Our mounting bracket is going to include all the hardware necessary to mount up your connector as well as two self tapping screws. If you choose to mount it to the bumper, the bracket itself is going to have a nice epoxy coating on it.

So it's going to resist rust and corrosion. So if you're looking for a way to mount up your seven way or your nine way on the back of your towed vehicle, this is going to be a great solution to get it in a secure spot by your hitch.So now that we've seen what it looks like, let's show you how to get it installed. To mount our bracket up, you have a few different options. It is going to come with a couple self-tapping screws, so you can screw it into the facia, but we're choosing to use this short bracket. So we have a spot right off the hitch that we can mount it up to.

You'll notice that we're going to have two holes on the top of our bracket.And I'm going to take the screws that came from our short bracket. I'll drive the screws down and I'm going to lift my bracket up, lining up the holes. Then we can secure it down with the locking nut. I'm going to come back with a three eight socket. I'm going to tighten up those two nuts.

I'm going to take our wiring and I'm going to either pass this through, or I'll take the plugin, line it up and plug in the back of our seven way. Make sure it clicks into place and then you'll notice that the holes are going to line up on a bracket.So test a flat head screw through the front and then secure it on the back with another locking nut. We'll do that for all four locations and once you have all your hardware in. You can come back with a three eight socket and tighten it up. That'll finish up your look at the Pollak mounting bracket and installation hardware for seven pole RV style trailer connector, part number PK12711U..

perfect fit with the draw tite hutch on my 2022 frontier. using curt t-connector 7 way harness kit.




by:

Although this bracket comes with tapping screws to mount to a metal undersurface structure, it only has 4 screws for the 7 point hitch device to screw into it and no additional screws to mount to the hitch itself. It should come with 6 locking screws for that purpose. I had to use 2 to mount it to the hitch and 2 to mount the 7 point hitch device into the bracket, leaving 2 spots open. I went to my local hardware store and autozone and couldn’t find these exact screws and etrailer doesn’t sell them as a separate order.




by:

Simple to install and fit with my hitch. My one complaint is that I did not even know I needed this piece until after receiving my hitch and wiring harness and watching the install video for the harness.
It would be great if e trailer had a little prompt that listed all the parts you will need with the product you are buying
All in all though, this is the second hitch I have bought from e trailer and both experiences have been good. Highly recommend.




by:

My F150 had an OEM 4 pin trailer plug and hitch.
The 118242 - 7 pin connector with wiring harness is the ticket. The hardest part of the install was dropping the spare tire. The plugs connect directly to the factory plugs and the harness length is the correct length.
The 3035-P brake controller connector harness was just as easy. Plugs right in to the OEM plug next to the ECM connector and the other end into the brake controller.
The PK12711U-26 - 7 pin bracket and hardware kit fastens directly the OEM bracket that is on the hitch. My truck had an OEM 4 pin trailer towing set up with the hitch. The OEM hitch had the bracket welded on it to attach the 7 pin mounting bracket to it.
These kits make this install very easy and professional looking.
If I have one complaint, the hardware kit to attach the 7 pin connector bracket is set up to fasten the bracket directly to the bumper with 2 - self tapping screws provided in the kit. The kit also includes 4 #12 machine screws with toothed washer nuts to attached the 7 pin connector to the bracket. This is fine if your truck hitch doesn't have an attaching bracket welded to it. The kit should included in it 6 #12 machine screws and nuts along with the 2 self tapping screws. Since my OEM hitch actually had a bracket welded to it to attach the 7 pin bracket to it, I had to use two other #12 screws and nuts to attach the 7 pin bracket to the OEM bracket on the hitch. Not a big deal, just a thought.
It took me about 2 hours, start to finish to install the 7 pin connector, trailer controller, and add the two relays in the OEM relay/fuse box under the hood.
I highly recommend these kits.




by:

This worked ok for me on my trailer light install, but after a year the black screws that came with the kit are rusting badly. I didn't use the silver screws that came with the kit, needed longer ones, so can't say how they would hold-up......




by:

It was suggested I purchase this bracket to assist in mounting my 7-way trailer harness (item #118253) to my 2010 Honda pilot. When I tried to attach the bracket underneath and behind the bumper, I discovered it was too tall and very difficult to fit where it was required. I also found that the bracket is a 90-degree bend and will not go flush against the bumper wall. The bumper wall runs at an angle and you would need a bracket with an approx 35-degree angle to fit flush against the bumper, that's important if you want a professional clean looking mounting of the trailer harness (7- way insert) like I installed (see attached pics). So forget this bracket, Just save your money and mount onto the bumper wall, plenty thickness and you get a clean look...Maybe one day they will make the proper bracket for such an installation...




by:

I have ordered several times and they have always been quick efficient and very helpful. Even to the point of saving me money!!!!




by:

Fit my harness plug fine. Had to use my own bolts to mount it to the bracket on the hitch.




by:

The bracket fit the hitch without any p roblems.


Comments
The bracket holds the trailer cable perfectly and looks like a factory install

by:

Should come with six flat head screws and washers. Two are used to attach this to the mounting point on the receiver and then you should have four for attaching the power receptacle.


Comments
Sorry about that. Customer service will reach out about the missing hardware.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 06/20/2022


by:

I have a 2003 F-150 and wiring parts I needed were a perfect fit. The videos were very helpful and informative. Now i know that there are relays and fuses that control trailer lights even through the truck lights are working fine.




by:

The fit was perfect, wish I’d ordered it instead of the one from [home improvement store]. It didn’t have slotted holes. It made all the difference. However I chose to use stainless steel hardware to attach it.




by:

Still great after a year of service. No issues! Easy to install! Highly recommend etrailer.com!


Comments
No issues!

Worked as advertised to install a 7-pin connector on the OEM 2018 Toyota Highlander hitch. I needed to modify the mounting holes slightly (elongate by 1/8”) on this bracket to get it to fit the OEM plate that is welded to the hitch. It does hang down fairly low, but don’t see another way to address that. Still above the WDH low points when towing, at least.




by:

The price I got was excellent compared to what the dealer would charge. Thanks to the etrailer installation videos, i was able to do it without difficulty and this is the first time i installed an item like this.




by:

Just the right part for the job! Perfect fit for my 7-way harness and on my draw-tite hitch!




by:

The tow package I purchased last year, fits great and installed perfectly. It works perfectly with my electronic under-dash brake controller.

The kit came with everything that I needed and instructions were easy to read I had the entire kit installed in about 40 minutes it's work Flawless for me for over a year and I tow a variety of trailers the plug is never failed due to workmanship it is still water tight.

The receiver cap spring still has excellent tension to help hold the plug into place, the only gripe I have is that I should have installed stainless mounting screwswhen I installed the kit because the mounting starting are starting to rust a little, but that's my oversight and is nothing to do with the kit and its ability to provide flawless service.

I highly recommend this product if you're like me and was looking for an oem Plug and Play setup!

5 stars!




by:

Easy to install instructions.




by:

Good fit with the 7-pin harness plug I purchased. One thing I was not happy about was how quickly the black-painted screws began to rust. I would suggest that the manufacturer consider the extra expense of furnishing stainless screws and nuts.


Comments
Fine, except for the non-stainless screws & nuts.
Peter - 09/28/2021


by:

Bought for a 2018 Nissan Frontier. Fit the wire plug perfectly and the Screws and nuts to secure the plug to the bracket were fine. The two screws to attach the bracket to the vehicle were way too small to use. They wouldn't work on the mounting tab on the Draw-Tite hitch or the factory holes under the bumper. I suppose if your creating new holes they would be okay. Appears to be a quality piece and I'm very satisfied with it.




by:

The mounting bracket for my trailer connector was easy to attach and worked very well with my trailer connector.




by:

Top hardware didn’t fit. Not as described in video. Had to use two of the side on top. Now I’m short two screws and bolts


Comments
I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/14/2022


by:

Requires some drilling which was in the product description so no surprise.
Nicely made and finished. Oval holes helped get a good fit.


Comments
A year later I dont even think about the installation or product. Thats how I should feel about wiring. If you have to think about it, its not doing its job. Completely satisfied with the product, and etrailer as a company.
Eric - 07/31/2022


by:

I called in to verify what harness I needed. The agent was knowledgeable and very friendly.




by:

Wiring bracket: when I installed the 7 pin wiring harness , it stuck out too far for the hitch cover that attaches to the bumper. Photo shows per instruction, however I spun the bracket 180 so it was indented, thus allowing cover to fit. Maybe something to mention.Again overall, super happy with how fast the receiver was shipped. Looks great. While not been used yet, it was a great experience installing myself.
