Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2016 Ford Escape

Speaker 1: Today in our 2016 Ford Escape, we're going to be installing the T1 vehicle wiring harness with a four pole flat trailer connector, part number 118566. This four pole wiring harness is going to provide you with all the necessary lights for your trailer. It's going to have your left turn, your right turn, your brake, and tail amp signals. It has an attached dust cap to keep out dirt and debris, and can also be used on your safety chain connector to hold it in place, to keep it from bouncing around. This way, you don't need to secure it each time you use it; you can just hook it right here, and the excess you need to get to your trailer's still available.The control box is fuse protected, and has its own dedicated power supply from the battery. This is going to allow it to provide all of the necessary connections at your trailer, without using power from your factory harness.



Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2012 Ford Escape

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2012 Ford Escape, we're going to be installing Curt's T-Connector vehicle wiring harness. Part number C56329. This wiring harness is going to provide you with all the necessary lighting that you need to haul your trailer. This includes your left turn, right turn, tail lamps, and brake lamps. So, you'll be DOT compliant in all states.It has a module box, that reads all the inputs going into your tail lamp assemblies, and sends them to your four pole connector here. This is nice because it's separate from your vehicle wiring.



T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2017 Ford Escape

Speaker 1: Today on 2017 Ford Escape we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with a 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector. That's gonna be part number 118715. So, here's what our wiring is gonna look like once we have it installed. And it's gonna provide us with a 4-Pole flat trailer connector, giving us all the lights we need to safely get down the road, like our taillights, turn signals, and our brake lights.Typically this is designed to stay on the inside of the vehicle, but we wanted to have it down here by our receiver tube, that way it would be ready for us when we tow. There is a grommet on the inside that we can easily route the wire down, and then just route it over to the hitch here. And use the dust cover to attach it so it doesn't drag the ground.Our kit's not gonna require any kind of cutting or splicing into our factory wires.



Best 2018 Ford Escape Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Options

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 Ford Escape we'll be having a look at our best trailer wiring options. We have two wiring harnesses here today to look at. Over to our left we have the Tekonsha T-One vehicle wire harness, part number 118715. Off to our right we have the CURT, part number C56320.The first biggest difference that we found between our two wiring harnesses is that our CURT here has a slightly lower power output compared to our Tekonsha. The CURT has a total of three amps power output for our turn signal and our brake light circuits, so those would be our green and our yellow wires. We have three amps total power output on each circuit.



T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2018 Ford Escape

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford Escape, you're gonna be taking a look at, and I'm gonna show you how to install, the Tekonsha T1 vehicle wiring harness with four pole flat trailer connector, part number 118715.You can see it's got a nice attached dust cap. That's gonna help protect your connections from dirt, debris, moisture, things like that. It's going to give you all the proper lighting functions for your trailer, both turn signals, your brake lights, your running lights, and your ground. What I really like about this wiring harness is it's drawing power from the battery instead of directly from the taillights.Some of your wiring harnesses that are out there, they'll plug directly into your taillights. Then your four pole's going to run directly down. And it's drawing power from the lights or from the wiring on your vehicle.



Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2010 Ford Escape

Speaker 1: Today on our 2010 Ford Escape we're going to be installing Curt's vehicle wiring harness with a four pole flat trailer connector using part number C56329. This four pole connector is going to provide you with all your necessary trailer lighting, which includes your left turn, your right turn, tail lamps and brake lamp signals. This harness plugs inline with your existing tail lamp assemblies. The control box receives a fused power supply from the battery, so the lights going to your trailer aren't feeding off of your tail lamp circuits, but they have their own dedicated power circuit. This is great, because if you have a fault on your trailer that causes a short, or the fuse to open, it won't affect the tail lighting on your vehicle, just the fuse for the control box. Attached is a dust cap to help keep out dirt and debris, and it can also be used to help store it when not in use.



Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2015 Ford Escape

Speaker 1: Today on our 2015 Ford Escape we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number HM11140514.So here's what our wiring looks like when it's fully installed. It is gonna stay on the outside of the vehicle at all times, and whenever we are ready to use it we can take of the dust cover from our hitch here, and that's gonna provide us with a 4-pole flat trailer connector, it's gonna give us all the required lights to get down the road safely, such as our headlights, taillights, and turn signals. One thing I do like about this wiring kit, is that right here on the of the 4-pole it does have a protective coating, and since it is on the outside that's a nice ting to have.Now that we've seen the end result, let's show you how we get it installed. To begin our installation we're gonna need to open up our rear hatch, so we can get access to our taillights so we can pull them out. Now on each side we're gonna have two plastic covers covering the bolts that are holding our taillight in. So I'm gonna take a flat blade screwdriver, and I'm actually just gonna come underneath these covers and pop them out.
