This is a perfectly tailored product for the do-it-yourselfer who with a little help adds a nice hitch to his vehicle. Getting an older vehicle's OEM installed weld nuts clean takes most of the time followed by installing the two washers and nuts in the fascia area. That part needs patience as the work area is limited. The Curt LED 4-Way Flat Connector (Vehicle End) Tester makes it very simple to verify the Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector that is a snap to install to the vehicles pre-existing harness. One point to pay attention to in the instructional video is when pulling the square washer and bolt through the channel. They must slide in single file as shown. If you try to pull with the bolt through the washer it will get stuck and you will need to fish it out. So bottom line. Great product. Great support. Steve Stewart

I give this product a 10 better than excellent! Until I found by accident, the etrailer video i had started to purchase a trailer harness at the auto parts store and splice the wires to my tail lights like i did years ago. Thanks to YouTube, my iPhone and etrailer i was able to install this trailer wiring within an hour, no fuss, no mess. Thank you so much. Product Review: first picture my 2012 GMC Terrain , Second picture, searching for the plug outlet for the trailer lights. Third picture, thanks to the E-trailer you tube Video I was able to locate the outlet. Forth picture, I cut some of the panel away to make easy excess to the plug outlet, I then , took an air hose and cleaned any debris in the outlet. Fifth picture, I plugged in an tested my new trailer wiring harness, worked perfect. Sixth picture, the finished product, I used a Felcro tie and attached the harness to a ring .

Great product. The instructions called for removal of some trim panels to better access the plug on my 2015 Terrain. I didn't find the need to do that. The plug is attached to the body with a trim button. Just pop the plug loose with a screwdriver or trim tool. Then there's enough slack to easily plug in your new harness. When done just pop the plug back in place.

2017 Chevrolet Equinox

2017 Chevy Equinox trailer hitch - not only was the product well constructed, but the videos on installation take the guess work out of it. My hitch came with a damaged box and scratches on the paint. Concerned about rusting etrailer promptly sent another which arrived fast in good condition. The service on the phone was wonderful. The local U-Haul dealer was going to charge me $4$$ for the installation which included $1$$ for the wiring. My Equinox has the trailer wiring quick connect which took me 2 minutes to open and connect the harness. So my total with receiver and harness was $1$$. Compare that to the U-Haul $4$$ quote. It was a no brainer. I am telling many friends about trailer.com. Thank you for a great product and great service!

2016 Chevrolet Equinox

This was a very fast and simple installation on my 2016 Chevrolet Equinox that did not include the factor tow package. There is a connector behind the left rear wheel under the cover for the spare tire storage area. Installation involved lifting the cover to the spare tire area, quickly locating the connector, and plugging in this product. I then had working trailer power. I read on a a different site that this trailer connector is on all Equinox even if they don't have factory trailer installed. That was the case on my Equinox. The dirrections for this product say you might need to get the power to this connector turned on by your GM Service Center but I did not have to do that. It really was as simple as plugging in the connector and having trailer lights. I like this option much better than the T-Connector option that connects behind the rear tail lights. Installation of this product is much easier than the T-connector and it runs off separate fusses in the vehicle for the trailer lights. That means if you cut or short a wire on your trailer, it only blows the trailer fuses so you can still drive your vehicle safely.

Great plug and lay, even gave the needed fuse. I also got my 2 Nd order and will be doing it on Saturday 4-17 I hope it’s as nice as this was. Scot was very knowledgeable and got me the correct stuff. Great guy to deal with . This company is my now go to on wiring and hitches. Great job you guys keep up the great job.

Why have a hitch with no wiring? What was GMC thinking? No worries, this wire harness is plug in and go. It works great! When not in use just roll it up and tuck it in with the spare tire.

2013 Chevrolet Equinox

Pros: plug and play operation Easy install Con: Does not come with loom for OEM like install Thoroughly happy that my 2013 1LT Equinox WITHOUT towing had the proper plug for this harness. I recommend prospective owners check first if considering adding a hitch. The directions say to plug the gray connector into the existing vehicle connector to the left of the spare tire area and store inside when not in use, then pinch wire in lift gate when in tow... I did not like this so I bought the 4-pole bracket. I de-pinned the gray connector side and installed braided tubing and heat shrink, then drilled a hole into a plastic plug under the carpet, re-pinned the gray connector and done. It's not necessary, but gives a great OE finished look.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox

It took less than a minute to install and it turned out that my trailer lighting was already enabled so I didn't need the dealer to re-program the computer. Since I use it rarely, I elected to just keep it coiled in the spare tire bay and pull it out under the door when I need it.

2015 Chevrolet Equinox

This worked perfect for my 2015 Equinox. I first tried product number 56094, the one where you take the tail lights out and use the plugins for the tail lights. 56094 does not work. GM autos have an odd tail light set up where you only get 5 volts from the tail lights. This harness plugs into a connection in the spare tire compartment, on the driver side, and is 12 volts. You have to be creative running the wire to the outside if you don't want to run it out back hatch door. This one is highly recommended. The other is not recommended.

The Curt # 56094 is for vehicles that arent equipped with the tow package.
