Review of Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C56181


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C56181. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This product is going to fit certain years of the Chevrolet Traverse. It's going to provide the your 4 way flat trailer connector to power your trailer's signal lights. The benefit of a system like this is that it's going to connect quickly and easily. All you have to do is locate the connection points in the rear cargo area.

Then you're going to have these snap lock T-connectors to plug into place. You just plug them into the other ends of the connections. They're going to snap into place for nice, tight, secure fit. Your white wire is going to have a ring terminal attached to it. This is going to be your grounding wire. It's going to come with a self tapping screw that way you can secure it in a nice, clean out of the way area.

Once you have your T-connectors plugged in, then you'll need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. The hot lead's going to be this black wire here. It's going to connect to the bundle of black wire. It's going to give you plenty of length of wiring to run all the way up to the vehicle battery. All the necessary butt connectors are included to make those connections.

Then the other end of the black wire gets connected to the fuse holder. Fuse holder's, excuse me, included as well. That's going to get connected with a butt connector. Then other end of the fuse holder's going to get a ring terminal attached to it and then that's going to get connected to the positive post on the vehicle battery. Then you take the included fuse and put it inside the fuse holder. The block box right here, this is going to be your power tail light converter.

This is going to connect directly to the battery through the wiring and that's going to avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system. It's going to be constructed using surface mount technology for consistent, reliable performance. What that does is it maximizes the trailer light yield and intensity while producing minimal heat. It's also going to ensure superior operation, even in rough road conditions. Here on the 4 ways connector, you can see we've got plenty of wiring. It's also going to come with the dust cap that way we can protect the connection points when they connector's not being used. The overall unit's going to be constructed in the USA. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 3 amps per circuit and for the tail lights we're looking at 6 amps per circuit. To get the converter box mounted in an out of the way location, it's going to come with some double sided adhesive tape. That's all going to be included in this little packet right here. You're also going to get some very detailed instructions. These are going to walk you through the installations process step by step. Very detailed, they've also got some pictures in there to help you know exactly where your connection points are. You're also going to notice in the package it's going to include some zip ties. That's going to be to secure and excess or slack in your wiring. It's going to really clean up the installation. A special note we need to mention is that this wiring cannot be installed if your vehicle has a rear air conditioning unit. The custom T-connector is going to plug into the vehicle's wiring harness. That's going to be located behind your tail lights. One you plug in the T-connectors, again, you're going to need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. Once you have everything complete, once your installation is done, the 4 way flat connector is going to be stowed in an out of the way location in the rear cargo area. Then we're always going to recommend to use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections like the 4 way flat connector on the plug and on the automobile plug. That's going to help prevent any type of corrosion from settling in to the connection points. That's going to do it for our review of part number C56181. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer connector. .
