Best 2013 Ford Van Trailer Wiring Options

Today on our 2013 Ford van, we're going to be taking a look at the best wiring options available. The first one's going to be our Curt Four Pole Flat Trailer Connector and that's part number C56020. The second one's going to be our Tekonsha T-One Four Pole Flat Trailer Connector and that's part number 118551. Both of which are going to come with a four pole flat connector to hook up to your trailer. This is the end result, the main differences between the wiring harnesses are is that the Tekonsha uses a power module and this is going to prevent you van from overloading or shorting out. It does this by connecting directly to the battery, and it copies the signal to our trailer. The Curt, however, is used for light duty applications. It doesn't use a module so you have more risk of overloading or shorting out.

2013 Ford Van Questions and Answers


  • Floor Mats for 2014 Class C Motorhome on 2013 Ford E450 Cutaway Van Chassis
  • The Ford E450 Cutaway Van chassis would use the same floor mats as the regular Van would. If you click the provided link, you can see the different mats that would be a fit. The WeatherTech # WTW51TN mats you mentioned would be a fit, but these are semi-custom mats that wouldn't have as precise a fit as a custom mat like those from Husky Liners, available in Tan as # HL33253, black as # HL33251 or gray as # HL33251. Carpeted mats are also available, in Beige as part # CC76335123 and...

  • Wiring and Brake Controller Recommendation for 2013 Ford E 250 Cargo Van
  • Since your 2013 Ford E 250 Cargo Van is not equipped with a tow package, you would need to start by installing a 4-way connector like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, # C56020. This connector plugs directly into your existing wiring with no cutting or splicing required. Next you will need a 7-way connector. The Universal Installation Kit, # ETBC7, kit includes the wiring and accessories needed to install the 7-way connector and a trailer brake controller in your cargo van. Last...

  • Front Mounted Receiver for 2013 Ford E450
  • I'm assuming you have a Class C motorhome on a 2013 Ford E450 cutaway chassis. If this is the case, there is a front hitch available. You'll need the Draw-Tite Front Mount Receiver, part # 65053. You can see the installation instructions by clicking the provided link. The # 65001 you referred to is a fit for the 1991-2007 Ford Van and Cutaway Chassis, so it wouldn't fit your vehicle.

  • Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch # 65053 does indeed fit your RV built on a 2013 Ford E-350 van chassis.

  • Where Does a Brake Controller Plug In on a 2014 Coachman Leprechaun Class C on Ford E-450 Chassis
  • The port to plug in a brake controller on a Ford E-450 van chassis using harness # 3034-P is located to the left of the brake pedal and forward towards the lower left corner of the floorboards. I have linked a video that should help. For a brake controller I recommend a proportional model for the best and safest braking. You can use the Primus # TK90160 which has the same internal parts as the original Prodigy. I have linked a video review of the Primus for you.

  • Relay and Fuse Locations for a Brake Controller on a Jayco RV Built on Ford E-450 Chassis
  • I wasn't certain which year E-450 chassis the motor home was built on so I checked online copies of the owner's manuals for 2013 and 2014. According to the manual in the fuses section the brake controller fuse is in location 18 in the power distribution box and location 33 in the in-cab fuse box. I did not see anything about a relay though. I am not sure if the RV cutaway models are different so you will need to check your owner's manual to confirm.

  • Steering and Axle Stabilizer and Anti-Sway Bars for Motor Home Built on 2013 Ford E450 V10 Chassis
  • For a motor home built on a 2013 Ford E450 chassis with V10 motor you can use steering stabilizer # RM-RBK11-RSSC. For additional stability and improved ride quality you can use rear anti-sway bar # RM-1139-147, front anti-sway bar # RM-1139-176, and axle stabilizer # TT2450. I have included a link to our help article on heavy duty vehicle stabilization for you.

  • Will Blue Ox TigerTrak Rear Axle Stabilizer Stop RV Sway Caused by a Towed Vehicle
  • The TigerTrak rear axle stabilizer, # TT2450, is the correct model for your RV built on the Ford E-450 van chassis. It will cut down on the sway problem you are experiencing but it may not be able to completely eliminate it. Many times the factory rear sway bar is adequate at best. To upgrade the bar and the bushing you can use rear anti-sway bar # RM-1139-147. And if you are after stability then I do recommend replacing the front bar as well with # RM-1139-176 and a steering stabilizer,...

  • Availability of a 2 Inch to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Extender for a 2013 Ford E-350 Van
  • Six inches is the shortest 2 inch to 2 inch extender that is available. You could save considerable money by going with a 7 inch model, # HE06. The use of an extension will reduce the trailer hitch tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. You will need to make sure the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes when loaded does not exceed the reduced trailer hitch tongue weight capacity.

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2013 Ford E-250 Van
  • I checked with Tow Ready about 7-Way connector # 118261 and it is not a confirmed fit for the 2013 Ford E-250 van. Since there are no other options and since you have some factory wiring already, I recommend using 4 and 7-Way connector # HM40975 with harness # PK11998. You will need to test the wiring on the vehicle end with a circuit tester such as # 3808 to determine the functions. Then you can install the harness accordingly: Red - Left Turn and Stop White - Ground Blue - Electric...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2013 Ford E-350 Van
  • All of the trailer hitches we carry for your 2013 Ford E-350 van use 6 bolts to attach to the vehicle frame. The hitches are given their ratings based on several factors, including how they mount to the vehicle so having 6 bolts to mount a hitch does not diminish its rated capacity. But if you want an 8-bolt hitch none of the options we have use more than 6. The most popular hitch for your van is Curt hitch # 14055 rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight and 10,000 pounds gross trailer...

This connector plugs directly into your existing wiring with no cutting or splicing required. Next you will need a 7-way connector. The Universal Installation Kit, # ETBC7 , kit includes...

  • Snow Plow and Front Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Ford E-250 or E-350
  • In order to use a snow plow on the front of your 2013 Ford Econoline Van you will first need a front mounted hitch. For that you would want the # 65053.

  • Hitch Availability to fit a 2013 Ford E-350 Van
  • I may have a solution for you. The Curt hitch part # 14055 would fit a 2013 Ford E-350 which is what your Class B is built on. There is a chance it could fit, but since sometimes Class B motorhomes can have the frames extended you would need to measure to be sure. This hitch is designed to fit frames that have hole centers that measure 38-1/4 inch apart and have frame members that are overall 40.13 inches. The hitch opening will be right at 1 inch below where it mounts.

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on RV Built on 2013 Ford E-450 Van Chassis
  • The 2013 Ford full size van chassis (E-series) can use brake controller wiring harness # 3034-P but only if it came with a factory 4-Way or factory 7-Way trailer connector. If it did not then a brake controller will have to be hardwired in. If the vehicle has a factory 4-Way connector then the blue wire on the brake controller will have to be ran manually from the brake controller to the back of the vehicle and you will need to add # 37185 to add a 7-Way.

They were unsure whether the Covercraft Premier Custom Auto Floor Mats, part # CC76335123 were a fit for your motorhome. These floor mats are designed to fit Ford vans from 2012 to 2014, so if your motorhome has a cab like the Ford vans these may work for you.

The end link that you referenced measures 8.63 inches from center of the hole to the...

  • Tips for Mounting a Trailer Roof Vent on a Ford E-250 Van
  • The sealant might be enough, it depends on how deep the corrugations are. You may need to use some sort of spacer if the gaps are too large. I would say if the bottom of the flange that mounts to the roof is more than a 1/4 inch from the top of the roof you would need to use spacers of some kind to bridge the gap and then use the sealant.
