I sent an email to verify the correct trailer plug for my Sub and they responded in a timely manner. Made the purchase and it fit perfectly!


Just what we were looking for! The 2007 Chevy truck needed a replacement connector and this did the job!


Fast and exact replacement


I twisted this connector into the stock location and the locking tab that keeps it from twisting back out broke off. I locked it into place with a screw so it won’t twist out. Disappointed that it broke so easily .

2013 GMC Sierra

Broke my trailer electrical socket on my GMC pickup, I’m 1,500 miles from home waiting for the snow to start melting to go home. The local GM dealer wanted over $70.00 for replacement part. Found this one at for $16.95. I had it sent priority mail as mail has been slow here in AZ , received in six day and took less than five minutes to install. Hate to leave AZ , but home in SD is calling. We will be be back next winter. Thanks to etrailer for saveing me money I’ll need for gas home.


Great price and Delivered on time!! Tha nks!


Haven't installed yet, but will soon.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado

great to deal with and fast delivery


This connector arrived fast and was very easy to install. Took about two minutes to put in. It seems to be of very good quality.


Very easy...Installed in about 10 seconds. Product did not completely cover the holes through the bumper that existed from the factory harness insert. So you can see light a little bit of light around the product.

GMC Sierra

Fits perfectly and works as intended

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Perfect fit for my 2008 Silverado. Identical to the adapter used in my wife's 2007 Suburban, except hers says "GM" and mine says "Pollack." This is all assuming it works, I haven't hooked a trailer up to it yet.


Looks to be good quality. Easy to install.

the old connector by depressing the keeper, turning it counter clock wise about a quarter turn, slide it out, depress the keeper on the wiring harness connector and unpluging the unit. Install the new connector by pluging in the wiring harness connector, sliding the unit through the bumper hole and turning it about a quarter turn clock wise to lock it in place. It took less time than writing this.



After a year, I still believe this product is well made of high quallity products. It is operating well as I expected it would. Thank you for building and selling this product.


Works perfect just like GM shipping



This looks like my GMC 2006 connector. What is the year of your truck. The spec says it is for 2007 and up.



I have a 07 Chevy Avalanche

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Old electric plug in on my 2007 Chevy 2500 was worn out. Cord from RV would not stay plugged in. Went on line on E-Trailer, ordered a new part for GM vehicles, when it arrived, it took me about five minutes or lees to remove the plug all I needed was a small regular blade screwdriver. New part woks fine. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I have ordered from E-Trailer. I have always been satisfied. Thank you Ken Hill

Kenneth H.


Still working great


Fit no issues tight and quality. Spot on. 2011 gmc 2500hd fit right in the factory light plug in. Those that don’t have the 7 way connector already in it this adapts.


Replaces plug with broken cover tab. Old plug matches photo. Correct model year replacement not exact duplicate but fits cutout and wire harness. Average price. Very fair shipping fee.



Looks good, fits good, works fine.


Fast shipping, superior product, I would definitely buy again!

2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Trailer parts arrived quickly, were well packaged & fit exactly. will be my first call for additional trailering needs.



works well, no problems, fast delivery


After 18 years, my original trailer plug connector was showing signs of corrosion. When I bought a travel trailer with electric brakes, I knew I could no longer trust my old connector. I purchased this replacement because it is identical to the OEM connector which I knew was excellent quality, not a cheap knock-off. It was simple to install and the wire connector plugged right in. I've been using it extensively for a year now and it's been working flawlessly. I'm glad I purchased this quality connector that I can trust.

2007 GMC Sierra Classic

Exact fit and works great. I couldn't give it a 5 because it rotates slightly in the mount which doesn't seem to affect it's function, but the old factory part that it replaced didn't do that.

Chuck K.


Have had no problems with it.


This little marvel was a piece o' cake to install. Less than 10 minutes from taking it out of the box to installing in the bumper of my Chevy and wiping my hands on my pants. If my nosy and talkative neighbor wouldn't have been staring over my shoulder, it would have been installed in under 5 minutes.

Mike B.


Working fine.

Mike B.


No issues to report, the unit is working fine.


Took five minutes to install. Works gr eat.



Works great. Was a snap to install





They are all still performing well.


This part, which was not available at the local parts store, is an exact replacement for the connector I damaged. Easy installation.



Works Perfect- better than original

  • Curt Class V Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4
    The Curt Class V Hitch part # C15323 that you referenced has been confirmed by Curt to fit your 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4, crew cab, short bed truck. This hitch should work well for you. I attached installation instructions for you to check out. Most likely you have trailer wiring, but if yours is damaged you would want the Pollak 7-Way part # PK11916. I attached an install video for this product. For a ball mount, hitch ball, and pin and clip, I would recommend the etrailer Ball...

  • Replacement 7-Way Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    The Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector # PK11916 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 so it would work well as a replacement. It will need to be mounted to the twist in 7-way port at the rear of your truck and then the connector for the 7-way behind the bumper will need to get plugged into it. I attached an install video that shows this as well.

  • Does a Curt Trailer Hitch # 14301 Limit Access to the Spare Tire if Installed on 2013 Chevy 1500
    To install the Class IV Curt trailer hitch # 14301 on your 2013 Chevy 1500 you will need to temporarily remove the spare tire for accessibility to the hitch mounting locations. After installation is complete and the spare tire is re-installed you will not have any issues with accessibility or clearance around the full size spare tire when mounted in the factory location. I have included a photo of this hitch installed on a slightly older Chevy truck, and you can see that there is no interference...

    You did not mention if your 2013 Chevy Silverado was a 1500, 2500, or 3500 so I can provide recommendations for all 3. For a 1500 I recommend Curt trailer hitch # 14301. There is no drilling or trimming required for installation of this hitch. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. For a 2500 or 3500 series short bed I recommend B&W hitch # BWHDRH25601. Again there is no drilling or trimming required. The version for long bed models is # BWHDRH25600 and there is...

  • Installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller in a 2015 Cadillac Escalade
    The 2015 Cadillac Escalade was available both with and without a factory tow package. A dealership may be able to run the vehicle VIN in their computer system to see how it is equipped. If it does have the factory tow package then you would use harness # 3016 to plug in the P2 brake controller # 90885. The harness plugs into a junction box located under the dash on the driver's side, up near the fire wall above the carpeting. Take a look at the video I have linked that will help. If you...

    Good question, and a 2012 Cadillac Escalade does not have a harness that will allow you to plug in a brake controller, but it does have the wires already run under the dash, regardless of if you have the factory 7-way or not. If you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see where the wires will be; this is a cut out from the linked installation video of the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller # TK90160.

  • 7-Way and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2005 Chevy TrailBlazer
    For a 7-way that would install in the bracket of your 2005 Chevy Trailblazer the part # PK11916 would work well as long as you have the harness for the 7-way. However, since your vehicle does not have a trailer connection currently you would need a few more components to install a brake controller and make the 7-way functional. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 1191250KIT. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way...

    Because the Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK11916, is designed to fit in the cutout in the bumper of your truck, it does not have a mounting bracket specific for it. You could replace the connector with # PK11893 and use mounting bracket # PK12711U or you can try to use one of the mounting brackets in the link I have provided.

  • Is Hopkins Multi-Tow Trailer Connector Adapter Compatible with a 2007 Chevy Silverado New Body Style

I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. If the truck did not come with a 7-Way and you want to add one, you can use # PK11916, or, for a multi-tow with 7-Way and 4-Way functions, use # HM40975. Once a 7-Way is installed you will be able to use the adapter.

A GM dealer may have just the cover as a replacement part. If they do not then you would need to replace the entire connector. There are a couple of options for replacing the whole assembly. You could get the GM replacement part that fits right in place of the old one. Or you could get an aftermarket one that has a mounting...
