On this white wire here, we have our necessary ground connection between our RDX and our trailer. The brown wire is our tail light and running light circuit. On this circuit we have six amps of total power output. Those six amps will be sufficient enough to have a few incandescent light bulbs or several LED lights. LED lights draw less power than incandescent lights, so we're able to run more off of this circuit with that.

This black wire here, with the white stripe, is our necessary ground connection between our RDX and our trailer. The wire with the brown stripe, that is our taillight and running light circuit, and on that wire we have a total power output of 7.5 Amps, which is more than adequate to run several incandescent lights, or basically as many LED lights as we want, because they do draw less power.On our black wire with the yellow stripe, that is our left turn signal and left brake light. On that circuit we have a total power output of 4.2 Amps. Tekonsha does recommend a maximum of two lights on that side, so if you have incandescent lights, limit them to two.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2009 Acura RDX

Today in our 2009 Acura RDX, we're gonna be taking a look at installing the tow ready T1 vehicle wiring harness with four pull flat trailer connector, part number 118500. When you're ready to use your four pull flat connector, you're gonna take it out of our cargo area. We'll lay it across the hatch here, being sure to keep away from our latch, so we don't pinch our wire, and we can just close the hatch right over top of it. When you're done with it, we can open up the hatch and we can just fold it away using the cover as a tie down. The reason you'd want this box is it's gonna isolate the trailer form the vehicle's wiring system, so if you we're to have a back feed or a short, it's not gonna affect the vehicle's wiring, causing a short and maybe taking out a computer on your vehicle. Now to begin our installation we're gonna need to take out the floor of the cargo hatch and the front floor as well, and we're gonna need to remove the spare tire. Now located underneath the front of this styrofoam cover here, there's gonna be a plug taped to the wiring harness. It's gonna be a blue plug.
