Video Transcript for Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2005 Chevrolet Silverado crew cab, we're going to install part number 30955. This is a replacement multi-tow 7-way and 4-way trailer connector. We're going to replace the original 7-pole connector That came with the vehicle. This is how it came to us, so you can see that the connector has seen better days. To remove our 7-pole connector, there's a tab right here that we push down and pull out. Sometimes there may be a little gray tab or a lock that fits around this.

You just push down in the center of it and just push it out of the way, then put it back when you're done. We don't have that one, so we'll just push down on this tab and pull it apart. This is our new part that's going to replace the OEM connector. This will simply just plug right back in, like this. However, we're going to take this and route it down towards the bottom of our hitch, toward our pre-existing mounting bracket. This is the bracket that comes with the part.

However, we're going to use the pre-existing one. A good location for this if you wanted to install it, would be right here. It does come with the hardware to install the bracket. However, self-tacking screws will work best in this application here. Let's go ahead and route our wire harness down.

Before we add our new connector, we'll go ahead and put some dilectic grease on the contacts to help protect them. We're using part number 11755. Let's go ahead and route this through our bracket. We'll go ahead and make our connection. We'll just push the two together, make sure they line up OK, and squeeze them until they click. Now we'll use the hardware that comes with the kit, to attach our 7-pole to the bracket.

With our hardware loosely assembled, we'll go ahead and tighten it down, using a flat-blade screw driver. Typically, this star washer on the back will give enough grip; we don't need a wrench. If you do, a 3/8 will work just fine. We'll go ahead and route our wire harness up and out of the way, make sure it's safe and secure with some zip ties. Zip ties don't come with the kit, so you might want to go ahead and get extra long zip ties to go around the hitch. In just a few minutes we've got a new 7-pole connector plus a 4-pole connector installed on our truck. That will do it for our replacement multi-tow 7-way and 4-way trailer connector on our 2005 Chevrolet Silverado crew cab. .

Perfect! I used this on a single cab Chevy Silverado 1500. Plugged into factory trailer lights near spare tire, mounted it up, plugged in trailer and everything worked just like it should. My truck does not have a spare tire so I removed the spare tire keyhole mount and cut some of the bumper to fit the adapter. My truck did not require a ECM/PCM flash of any kind, although I hear some vehicles may have to.

Cathy T. was very good help. She set me up with the correct parts for our 2001 Chevy so we can have a 7 prong plug in at the bumper and in the box. We got rid of the cobbled up mess that started giving us trouble and now everything works great. The plug and play took me about 1 1/2 hours to complete. We will do business again if needed. Thanks again Cathy T. and etrailer!

I bought this 7 way trailer connector to replace a broken one on my 2006 Chevy 2500HD. It was an easy install and only took a few minutes to complete. I tested it with my trailer connected and all works fine. The shipping was super fast. Thanks , etrailer.

I installed this today. Took around 90 minutes but part of that was learning how to get the spare out of the way. I drilled two holes in the bottom of the bumper because of where I wanted the connector to be placed. All necessary hardware came with the unit. This was very easy to do after watching etrailer's How To video. Good job guys, great product.

After installing on my Truck the right turn signal didn't work. I had to disassemble and fix loose wire in the female plug. To the average consumer this would have been an aggravation. Luckly, I own my own shop.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver was easy to install and has worked just fine in pulling my several trailers. For the price, an excellent deal. The 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness Connector by Hopkins was a disappointment because the cap that doubles as a dust cover and latch to the adapter has come off and missing after a few months. This cap is not replaceable, the whole connector would have to be replaced.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado

My 2007 Classic Silverado Crew Cab 4x4 did not have a factory hitch receiver, so I selected the 13322 Curt Hitch Receiver because it closely resembles the OEM hitch receiver and attaches to the bottom of the bumper. Installation was easy, as shown in the videos and described by other reviewers. All holes aligned perfectly. I did not remove the spare tire as it is not necessary. I used two jack stands to raise/support the receiver frame in place while I started the first bolts. I had the 22mm and 19mm sockets needed to tighten and torque the bolts/nuts. It looks great and I now am able to tow. For the wiring I installed the 30955 Hopkins 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connectors to the bumper adjacent to the license plate. This required drilling a 2-1/8" hole in the bumper, which was time consuming, but it now resembles a factory installation. I was able to remove the license plate and connect to the factory plug. I ordered these parts from etrailer for a number of reasons: 1) The website is intuitive and contains a tremendous amount of information for the person who is trying to research product information; 2) the selection and inventory is amazing; 3) the prices are very competitive – free shipping for orders over $99; and 4) the dedicated customer service is outstanding – the email communication is prompt. I ordered on a weekend and it was delivered by the following Friday. A very positive first experience.

Ordered this because I thought my old one was not working right...so I replaced it..still had the same problem so it had to be something else...but this is a great item has both the 4 flat and 7 way... That's awesome. I figured it out.. had to chase some wires...was not getting full 12 volts to the trailer hook up.. had to make full connection for brake controller

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

Pretty easy to install. I originally ordered a more expensive version that was out of stock. This item is basically the same but a little cheaper. The one I originally ordered was to be connected to the truck bumper with self threading bolts. This one has little nuts and screws that are almost impossible to connect to the enclosed bumper. So I substituted my own self threading bolts. My other concern is the bracket could be a little stiffer. I'm not sure what the more expensive version is like, but this one could use a little more structure on the bracket. Time will tell how it will hold up. I may need some triangulated bracing on the sides to stiffen it up. Otherwise it appears to be what I wanted. I've yet to connect it to my trailers to see how it performs.

Worked fine for the few months I had the truck

  • Does the Cover on 4- and 7-Way Trailer Connector 30955 Lock the Trailer Connector In Place
    What your are describing is a common feature of most every 7-Way trailer connector including # 30955. They are designed that way for the exact reason you explain: it locks the connector into place so it cannot accidentally pull out.

  • Location for Installing Hopkins # 30955 Replacement Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connector
    You are entirely free to choose an alternate mounting location for your new 7-way as long as your factory wiring harness can still reach its location. Your vehicle and trailer will not care on which side of the hitch their electrical connection is made. I do suggest you first make certain that your trailer connector can reach your new preferred location on the vehicle when the trailer and vehicle are hitched. You also need to be sure the OEM harness on the vehicle (with the round U.S. Car...

  • Wiring Harness to a 2013 GMC Sierra Trailer Connector is Locked On
    I have included a link to a video that should help you. The wiring harness is connected to the trailer connector on your 2013 GMC Sierra with a white or gray lock. The easiest way to remove it is to use a very small flathead screwdriver and push/pry the lock out of position so you can then pull it out. Then there is likely to be a spot on the connector housing that you will need to push in while pulling out the harness at the same time.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Passenger Side Stop Turn Circuit Not Functioning
    First thing I would do is ask your buddy what all he messed with, if you can get him to undo the damage he did to your trailer you will be in better shape. It sounds like the original problem you had was just a bad ground on the passenger stop/tail light. Typically light assemblies ground through their mounting hardware so ensuring this light is attached to a clean metal surface would be a great place to start and would most likely fix the problem.

  • Brake Controller Installation on a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado
    If you have a 2007 Silverado with the Classic Body style, as long as the connector port is there underneath the dash and you have a factory 7-Way connector port at the rear, all the wiring is in place and you would be ready to use your brake controller. If your truck does not have a factory 7-Way, you would need part # 30955. It is a 7-Way harness that is plug and play. We have this part used in one of our installation videos so I will provide a link to that video as well.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer that Illuminates Trailer and Vehicle Running Lights When Connected
    There must be a short on the wiring of the trailer you are towing or on the tow vehicle. Sounds like it has to do with the running lights and the 12 volt power circuit. Since it only happens when the trailer is connected I would expect it to be on the trailer side of the situation. Check out the 7-way wiring diagram I attached and compare that to how the 7-way of the trailer is wired. You would also need to look for obvious signs of a short like cut or exposed wiring or corrosion. If...

    Hopkins Replacement Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connector # 30955 is a correct fit for your 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 that came with a factory-installed 7-way. This replacement part connects to the round U.S. Car connector at your bumper and provides both a 4-pole flat and a 7-way RV-style blade connector for added towing flexibility.

This will give you a 7-way and a 4-way trailer connector. I attached an install video for this product that shows it being installed on a 2006 Chevy Silverado for you to check out as well.

    If the factory trailer wiring harness on your 2005 Toyota Tacoma looks like the picure I've attached you can use part # 30955 to plug into that connector. This is a 7-way and 4-way connector that has a mounting bracket attached. If you don't have that type of connector or need a different kind of bracket, send me some pictures of what you have and I'll recommend something that works for you.

    Though you may not have the factory tow package, almost all GM pickup trucks like your 2002 Sierra 2500HD came with the factory trailer wiring. You mentioned you have an existing trailer plug, which you can use to install the Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connectors # 30955, which will plug into the OEM connector above the spare tire.

If still no power then begin tracing the wires back to each light while checking for breaks. If no breaks are...

    I have a complete replacement option for you, but unfortunately the cover for your 7-way connector is not something that is available by itself.

You will just need to undo the 4 perimeter screws and unplug the connector on the back, then reinstall the new connector. I included a video of the # 30955 for you to take a look at.

You also want to make sure the 7-way plug is properly grounded to a clean bare metal surface if it has a separate ground...
