Video Transcript for Reese Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 85219 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for the factory tow package. This is a 7-way US car end connector. This will easily plug into the factory equipped car end socket on your Dodge, Ford, GM, Jeep, Nissan, or Toyota vehicles, has a nice weather-tight gasket and cap right here. This will allow remote trailer wiring in your pickup bed or other hard to access areas. It is an exact replacement of the OEM connector. The hardware's all included, the four screws and nuts and washers that'll install this onto your mounting plate with the two screws that'll hold the mounting plate to your vehicle.

This is built to the OEM standards. If you notice on the cap itself, it has a nice heavy-duty, stainless steel spring end pin to give you a long, usable life. Again, it comes with the mounting brackets that you use to attach this to the vehicle. That should do it for the review on the Tow Ready Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a factory tow package.

Plugged right in worked great

Still working as it should a year later
Bill F - 07/14/2022


I install this in bumper so it wouldn't hang down and get ripped off when off roading. Worked perfectly and was a easy install.


The self-tapping screws that came with it were to small and weak. Otherwise a great product.


Perfict fit

Chevrolet Silverado

09 Silverado 2500 HD...Easy install, exact replacement .. had to replace self tapping screws that came with it... would recommend


worked great, the factory harness plugged right in and worked as advertised


mounting was poor - finally welded it to hitch


Hitch fit great, bolted right up. 7 way connector was great too, the self tapping bolts are a little weak, broke one and had to replace with self tappers I had on hand.


Very easy exact replacement.


This was a great transaction,quick communication and ship. Product was exactly as described. Thanks, we'll do business again.


Connector fit perfectly to OEM wire harness.
to drill one new hole for the mounting bracket. Not sure the one on there was original though.
Only gripe is the mounting screws for the bracket are wimpy. I used some beefier screws to mount the bracket.

I have ordered several products for the re-wiring and updating of by 10000 lb sailboat trailer. I have ordered electric brake kits, wire terminal boxes, led lights, etc. The shipping is incredible and fast, and the products are well made.

  • Replacement 7-Way for 2008 GMC Sierra
    A standard 7-way socket like the part # 85219 would fit the round connector of your 2008 GMC Sierra that you need a 7-way for. We don't have access to the Lance pin out.

  • Replacement 7-way Connector In Bed Of 2012 Ford F-350
    Yes, The Reese Replacement 7-Way RV-Style Trailer Connector for Factory Tow Package # 85219 you were looking at will replace the factory 7-way connector installed inside of the bed of your 2012 Ford F-350. The only difference is you will not need to use the included bracket and will need to reuse the bracket on your factory connector. I included a video of the # 85219 for you to take a look at.

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring for 2000 Ford Explorer XLT with Factory Tow Package
    Since your 2000 Ford Explorer has the factory tow package all you need to install a 7-way is the part # 85219 and you'd be set.

  • 4-Way and 7-Way Recommendation for 2014 Tacoma TRD Off 4x4
    What you would want is the part # HM40975 which fits the same round connector that the part # 85219 fits. As long as your truck has the round harness that the # 85219 would fit this would fit and work well for you.

  • Replacement Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector on 2007 Toyota Tacoma
    This is for Toyota Tundra and plugs into the truck's wiring. To replace your factory 7-way connector you will want # 85219. If the truck's wiring is also damaged and needs to be replaced then you can use # PK11998.

  • 7-Way to Replace Rusted OEM Bracket on 2007 Chevy Silverado
    The Pollak 7-Pole connector # PK11916 is made for twist-in installation on OEM bumpers. We do not offer the metal OEM bracket part that this item fits into but that might be available at a dealership. What you can use is 7-way socket # 85219 which includes both a separate mounting bracket and hardware along with a 7-way socket that will connect to the existing harness on the truck.

  • Can Reese 7-Way # 85219 Fit as Replacement for PK11916
    Both the Reese 7-way part # 85219 and the Pollak # PK11916 use the same round 7-way wiring connector and would fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado. The advantage to the Pollak for your truck is the twist lock style of fit that allows it to fit right into the bumper mounting location on your truck for a cleaner install. The Reese would fit but would require drilling the bracket to the bottom of your lower bumper. From a wiring and connector standpoint the two are identical.

  • How to Prevent Corrosion & Replacementf 7-Way for 2015 Nissan Pathfinder
    There isn't a specific reason why corrosion has built up on just one pin of your 2015 Nissan Pathfinder's 7-way, and this can unfortunately be a common occurrence. Moisture and dirt particles build up and create the corrosion, and it just so happened to be on this one pin. The good news is, you can replace just the 7-way connector of the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118273. The 7-way is plugged in via US car connector, so you can simply discard the corroded 7-way and replace it with...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer 7-Way Connection Between 2004 Chevy 1500 and 2015 Ford F-150
    The Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, 7-Way # 118242 is the correct harness for certain Ford F-150 models from 1997 to 2004. It uses factory specific plugs and then connects to a US Car connector at the 7-way and that portion is universal yet the t-connector is not. It sounds like you have a trailer that works on one and not the other and the issue with that situation is normally a ground issue on the trailer itself. Check the main ground near the coupler or battery...

  • Replacement Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2011 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
    Yes, our etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98850 is perfect for your 2011 Toyota Tacoma as it fits all Trim levels. I feel that our hitch having the Matte Black Finish also looks better than the other Gloss Black hitches. While you're replacing the hitch you will want to replace the 7-Way RV-Style Trailer Connector # 85219. This will ensure that any worn or damaged terminals within the connector are replaced and you don't have connection issues with your trailer.

  • 7 Way Trailer Plug Will Not Stay Seated In the Vehicle 7 Way
    This can be caused by a few things, but as you have enough slack in the wire, it is most likely just one of two things. The door flap, for the lack of a better way to put it, on the 7 Way plug on the towing vehicle snaps down on a tab on the 7 Way plug coming from the trailer. These can break off which causes them to come uncoupled. If this is the case, the 7 Way trailer end will need to be replaced with something like the Optronics # A7WCB. But it could also just not be seated all the...

  • Recommended Plug and Play 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller for 2015 GMC Sierra 1500
    GM actually uses the # HM40975 as the OEM trailer connector, so that's what I'd recommend you use. The connector will plug into the socket located above the spare tire. You'll need to free the connector from the frame member and uncoil it so it will reach the rear bumper. The truck is indeed pre-wired for a brake controller. To complete the installation, you'll need brake controller and the vehicle-specific wiring harness. I'd highly recommend the Tekonsh P3, part # 90195. The P3...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector for 2009 Ford Ranger
    If your Ranger was originally equipped with the factory 7-way, we have a plug and play option available as part # 74682 which would plug into the connector behind the rear bumper. If it wasn't equipped with the factory 7-way, you'll first need a functional 4-pole connector. If yours is damaged, you can replace it using # HM40655 which is a plug and play install. To convert that to a 7-way, you'd simply use a 4 pole to 7-way adapter like part # 37185. If the trailer you'll be towing doesn't...
