Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit Installation - 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on our 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 we will be installing the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit, part number BDW20205. First thing we'll do when we're ready to install our Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit is go ahead and open up the hood of our vehicle. With the hood open, we'll go ahead and take out our Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit. When you pull it out of the package you're going to have that dust cover and protector over the top. We'll go ahead and leave that on for the time being, and unravel the 7-1/2' of positive and negative cable. This way we could route it back to the battery from our desired location. Note that on the end you're going to have your fully integrated positive and negative terminal tie downs, and on the other end it's going to be fully encased and ready to operate. We're going to go ahead and route our wires up the frame and channel tubing of our vehicle, up over the top of the fender to where they come out right on the backside of the battery. more

Today we are going to install the Tekonsha Primus IQ brake controller on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500. We will also be using the Tekonsha wire harness, part number 3020-P.

It sense how hard or how softly you are braking in the vehicle and sends the proper voltage to the trailer brakes so the whole braking action is smooth and even. It features a digital LED display and also has three levels of boosts to increase or decrease the trailer braking power as needed. It can be mounted between 0 degrees and 70 degrees nose up. And it is covered by a limited lifetime warranty. In the packaging for the brake controller, you will find the brake controller itself, as well as a fixed black plastic mounting bracket and a black metal bracket that we will not be using. You will also find a packet of screws for attaching the bracket to the vehicle and the controller to the bracket, as well as a generic harness with loose wire ends.

We are going to start our installation back here at the rear of the vehicle and we are going to install our 7-pole at the rear first. The first thing we want to do is mount the bracket for the 7-pole. This particular vehicle has a nice large bumper that we can drill into. You just want to find a nice mounting location. Mark the holes and drill those out. I am just going to be using some self tapping screws to accomplish this. You can also drill 1/ 4 inch hole out if you like and use the provided hardware down through the bumper. Next we are going to take the 7-pole adapter from the ETBC7. Mount it on to the bracket and we are going to be doing that using the provided hardware. The next step is to merge up the 4-pole end on our 7 and 4 way adapter to the existing 4-pole that is on the vehicle. If you do not have an existing 4-pole you will need to add that on as well. However, this existing 4-pole unfortunately is not compatible with our 4-pole that we have on our adapter so what I am going to have to do is cut the ends off and wire them in direct. 01:14 more

Today, we are going to install part number 90185, the Prodigy brake controller from Tekonsha and we are going to install this on an 08 Dodge Grand Caravan. Also, on this install, we are going to be using part number ETBC-7 and also part number 118140 bracket kit. First, we are going to install the 18140 at the rear of the vehicle on the hitch. There is a hose clamp that holds it in place, basically. Kind of hold everything in place and just tighten it down. Now, we will install the bracket for the ETBC-7 kit and we will just put it on like so. Next, we will install the connector and it just goes into place like so. Put a couple of screws to hold it into place. Alright, at this point we will connect up to the preexisting 4-pole we already have. Next, we will put the existing 4-pole to the connector and before we do that we will put some dialectic grease in there keep it from corroding up over time. And we will put a zip tie around it make sure that it never comes apart. What we are going to do next is run our ground wire that will be the white with the ring terminal and then the purple wire is reverse light lead. In this instance we will not be hooking it up, that is because the trailer does not have any back up lights on it and also since this has to have a modulite for the wiring harness the reverse lights are not powered by the modulite, so it probably would not be a good idea to hook them up anyway. And then we will ground our ring terminal at the body panel near the pinch weld. Now, we will just go ahead and secure our wires to our other wires underneath the bumper. Next, what we need to do is go ahead and hook up our leads that go to the front of the vehicle. The blue will be going to the brake controller and the black will be going to the 12 volts basically straight to the battery going through a circuit breaker. We will just strip the ends off of the wire and we are going to go black to black for our 12 volt power supply and we are going to hook our white wire it is going to go to our blue wire. Just remember that the white wire is going to be going eventually back to the blue wire on the brake controller. We will go ahead and secure the wires with some tape, bind them up. Once you have them taped up secure, you can go ahead and install the loom assembly around it. It kind of slides onto the wire. You can also take the rest of your wires here and put it with it also. 2:33 more

Once you have your holes drilled out, you can go ahead and insert your bushing of your choice. And at this point you can take the extra wire that you had and wire going to the brake controller going out to the connector you can run those through right now. We are going to run outside our blue wire going out to our trailer, our white wire is going to go to ground, and our black wire will eventually go to our power. To give yourself a good idea about how much wire to leave left over behind so you have enough to reach the brake controller when you install it and it is always a good idea to have a little bit extra on the inside. So we will push a little back in there towards the outside. 1:05 more

This is actually a factory 7-pole plug which is going to allow us simply to plug our brake controller and adapter into place and go. To figure out if you have the factory 7-pole plug, you will note that this has got the welded bracket to the factory installed trailer hitch and if you actually look at the cover of the 7-pole, you will see the Chrysler logo and if you look closely you will see the actual Chrysler name written across the front. Those two indicators will help you know that you have got the correct factory plug. more
