Recommended Wiring Extension to Connect 2012 Ford Focus Wiring Harness to Motor Home 7-Way  


Base Plate bx2633 Ford Focus 2012 titanium how from the 4 wire to to permanent box cover switch then to the RV I just purchased this item Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles - HM56008 now I would like to go off of the 4 and to a permanent mount on the front of the vehicle and then use a coil wire from there to the RV what do you have thanks Rob

To provide a permanent lighting connector on the front of your 2012 Ford Focus and a coiled wiring extension for flat towing I recommend the Blue Ox 7-Wire to 6-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord # BX88206. This extension includes a 6-Pin socket connector that will mount to the Blue Ox # BX2633 base plate that you referenced, and the connector is black to help remain inconspicuous on the front of your Focus.

This connector will require the 4-Way Flat connector that comes with the # HM56008 custom fit harness to be cut off and the wires connected to the included black connector included with the coil # BX88206. When looking at the back of the socket connector, you will want to wire the Brown Tail Light wire to the top pin, in the 12 o'clock position; the Yellow Left Turn & Brake wire to the pin in the 7 o'clock position; the Green Right Turn & Brake wire to the pin in the 5 o'clock position, and the White Ground wire to the pin in the 10 o'clock position. I've attached a diagram showing how these wires are connected to the pins on the back of the 6-Pin connector.

I've attached an installation video showing this connector and extension being installed on a Jeep Wrangler where we had to cut off an existing 4-Way connect the 6-Pin socket, so the installation will be similar to that on your Focus.

There are no wiring extensions available to allow you to connect the 4-Way Flat from the wiring harness to the 7-Way connector on the motor home.
