Best 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trailer Wiring Options


Today we're going to be taking a look at the best wiring options for your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Depending on the situation you find yourself in, we're going to have three different options. Here on your right side we're going to have Tow Ready's Draw-Tite gooseneck fifth wheel wiring. Here in the center we're going to have Hopkins' replacement OEM seven and four-pole plug. Here on your left we're going to have CURT's four-pole add-on wiring.Let's talk about our gooseneck fifth wheel wiring harness first. This is going to allow us to utilize our factory seven-pole plug on the back of our vehicle while adding a seven-pole plug in the back of the truck.

When we're hauling our gooseneck, this allows us to plug our wiring for our gooseneck into that plug in the bed of the truck rather than having to hang it over the tailgate and run it to the factory seven-pole plug. Your factory wiring, when you take it off your plug, is going to plug in here. This side's going to plug into the plug that you just remove your factory wiring. Your wire gets routed up, then attached to the back of the seven-pole which is going to be mounted in the bed of the truck.This wiring's going to allow us to utilize all the same functions from our factory tow package wiring. This is going to be a direct replacement for our factory seven and four-pole plug if it happens to get damaged.

Also, if our vehicle doesn't come with the factory seven and four-pole plug but it's prewired for a tow package, because it's going to come with this bracket, this allows us to attach it to the bottom of our hitch and add this on later on. Each cover is going to have a spring-loaded lid so it stays closed when not in use. It's also going to have a ring on the inside that's going to seal right along this edge to help keep any dirt and debris, moisture buildup from the inside of our plugs or our connections. Same thing with our four-pole plug. We're going to have a large piece of foam here.

It's going to seal around that edge, really going to help protect our connections. The casing on it is a very durable plastic that's going to hold up in all weather conditions.Our add-on four-pole plug, what this allows us to do is it allows us to utilize our factory tow package wiring without having to use, say we add maybe a light bar on the back or we add a hitch cover that lights up and we have to use a four-pole plug. What this is going to allow us to do is not use a four-pole plug from our factory plug on the back of the truck. It's going to give us an extra four-pole plug while maintaining the use of our factory seven and four-pole plug.Although these are three very different wiring products, I feel they're the best options for whichever situation you may be in. That'll do it for a look at the best wiring options for your Chevrolet Silverado 1500..
