How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness Adapter on a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban

All right. Today on this 1998 Chevrolet Suburban, we're going to install Part Number 30717. We're going to use one additional part to help install to our vehicle that'll be Part Number 18136 from Tow Ready, it's a universal mounting bracket. First thing, we're going to do is take our mounting bracket and attach it to the hitch of the vehicle. All right. We'll go ahead and take a clamp and install on the hitch.

Put it on the top side of the hitch and run the clamp all the way around back through itself and then we'll push the bolt down into place then we can go ahead and tighten up the band. All right. We're going to have the bracket into place. Let's go ahead and take the bracket part number 18138 and we'll bolt that into place, couple of screws to attach to. Next, we'll go ahead and install the 7-pole to the bracket.

We'll use the same style screws, we'll tighten them down then we'll go ahead and take a 4-pole end to connect those two together. We'll use some dielectric crease to help protect the connections then we'll take the two ends together and also run the zip tie around to make sure it stays together. We'll take the white wire with a ring terminal and attach it to a ground screw from another installation. All right. With that attached to the frame, we have a good ground.

Now, we'll take our extra wire and we'll go ahead and zip tie it to itself to take up the slack. All right. With that, that'll finish it for our install of Part Number 30717 on our 1998 Chevrolet Suburban.
