Video Transcript for Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - HM42190 Review

Today we're going to review part number HM42190. This is the Hopkins Endurance quick install 7-way trailer connector. This kit will allow you to add a 7-way RV style trailer connector to your vehicle that has a factory tow package. This part number is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and some Mercedes Benz vehicles starting in 2000 that have the factory to 7-way connector. What I would recommend is go to our website and on our fit guide you can put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you the exact years and models that this will fit on. This is a 7-way blade RV style trailer connector for your vehicle with the factory tow package.

It is a plug-in simple installation, there is no cutting or splicing of wires. The wiring harness plugs in to your factory wire port at the rear of the vehicle and then the 7-way will plug right in to here. Oops, turn it around, just like that. That will be plugged in to your factory wiring harness. The lid on this will open 180 degrees you can see for easy connection.

This lid also helps keep out any dirt and moisture from getting to the terminals. It has enhanced weather proofing with internal seals right up in here and corrosion resistant terminals. Extremely durable ABS plastic construction, it has a nice oversize lid hinge. It comes with the mounting screws to mount this to a bracket and a package of dialectic grease which we recommend to put on the terminals when you do your connections, also on this right here. That should do it for the review of part number HM42190, the Hopkins Endurance quick install 7-way trailer connector. .

Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I purchased this to restore the 7-way recreational trailer connector on my Dodge 2500. The previous owner had cut off the factory connector box and connector. This connector plugged in directly to the truck's tow-package electrical cable connection, providing a quick and simple fix. Works great!




by:

A simple part… however, I have ordered hitches, wiring harnesses and other odds and ends. I buy from etrailer because they always have the right part, great installation instructions and videos. The quality is always spot on and the service is fast and helpful.
Why go elsewhere and hope things are right when buying from etrailer you know it’s going to be.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

I received a Hopkins 50002 Smart Hitch Backup Camera System for Fathers Day but my 2006 dodge diesel had the old square style 7-way connector. I did not want to splice into my wires unless I had no choice. I had recently bought some awesome new tail lights for my boat trailer from etrailer and I thought maybe I could find something there that would make this hook up possible without splicing into my wires. I'm certainly glad I did because they had the new style 7-way connector, just what I needed. I ordered it, installed it along with the camera system and life was great. No splicing wires! Thank you etrailer for making this Fathers Day gift a breeze to install.

Perfect! Could be more happier with this product

Quality of construction appears good. There were no fasteners in the package. Main concern is that the pigtail adapter, necessary to adapt the OEM-specific harness to the "generic" outlet, was a little bigger/longer than I'd like. However, this is easy to live with considering the OEM part cost 3X as much! Haven't had the time to see if the wiring pattern for the trailer lighting is correct.


Comments
It works fine but you have to watch out that you dont snag the pigtail adapter wire as you put the hitch into the receiver or hook up the safety chains.

2005 Land Rover Discovery II

I received the Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector pretty quick. I had ordered one through another source, but had to return it because it was the wrong one. Then I searched on google and found etrailer.com. After a little bit of searching on their site, I found this connector. They had great pictures and they were accurately-sized so I could see that the attachment holes to the frame of my 2005 Fleetwood Discovery RV would line up exactly. It matched up perfectly and installed in just a few minutes. The package was missing one nut, but that was no big deal as I quickly found a replacement.


Comments
Great. Better than the original.
Billy L - 08/30/2016


by:

Appears to be high quality components and materials. Included almost everything necessary, including grease to seal the connections. Liked the hex recess for the screw heads molded into the receptacle body. Would have been nice to include Nyloc nuts - Was concerned about tightening the screws enough to make the lock washers work while not damaging the plastic. Used Locktite instead.


Comments
Still working well :Thanks!

As advertized. Plugged right in. No splicing or taping required. Had to drill a cpl new mounting holes. Face plate was a little smaller but all the important stuff fit correctly.
Much better than searching thru auto parts stores.


Comments
After a year still working as it was from install. No problems with connectors or housing. Still 5 stars.

I found it odd that local parts stores didn't carry this item, as it is a standard Dodge truck plug. So I hit the Internet and found it here at a good price. It was delivered much faster than I anticipated.

2013 Mercedes GL450

This product its awesome !!!

After
a silly mistake on my end I broke the OEM Connector on my 13' Mercedes GL450, called the dealer and was told the connector doesn't sell individual and I had to order the Towing Kit (Over $900 !!!) decided to take my chances on aftermarket products.

Began by ordering part# PK11893-11933 from etrailer.com only to discover that the mentioned part worked fine but it didn't fit properly on the OEM Bracket (You had to drill new holes) when taking the plug out to disconnect it I broke the pin so sadly I couldn't sent it back for a refund.

Still, I was determinate to find a perfect fit, so I ordered this part from etrailer.com and this time I got it right. The part fit perfectly and you can even use the stock screws, also the part its rugged and you can tell its a great quality product. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks etrailer.com




by:
1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

I purchased this as a replacement for the damaged one on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500. While this connector costs more than a generic one, being plug and play more than makes up for the added cost by eliminating the need to splice into factory wiring. The connector plugged directly into the factory harness and was a perfect fit in the original location.




by:

Perfect fit! Thank you for your help!




by:
2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

My 2001 Dodge Ram had the wrong plug installed and the connecting plugs from the lights from the factory and the wrong plug didn't match. Went to etrailer.com, searched for my truck, and this plug came up. Ordered it. Received it. Installed it with no issues. The connecting plugs went together easily. Tested it with the trailer and all lights work!!! Thanks etrailer!

  • All Trailer Lights Work Except for Brake Lights Towed by a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Trailers in the US have combined brake lights and turn signals meaning the brake light signals and turn signals are sent on the same wire, one on each side. Since the turn signals are working that indicates to me that you potentially have a blown stop light of CHMSL fuse (CHMSL stands for center high mount stop lamp). It could also be a fuse or relay associated with the tow package wiring. You will need to use the vehicle owners manual to find the fuse and/or relay locations for the stop...

  • All Lights On Trailer Work Except Brake Lights Even with Weak Ground on 2006 Dodge Sprinter RV
    There may have been a slight weak ground that was allowing some of the lower power draw functions to still work. Trailers can sometimes seem possessed when there is a ground issue. So hopefully you have fixed that issue. The grounds on both the trailer side and the vehicle side, as well as the grounds for all of the trailer lights will need to be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. A weak ground issue would show up as soon as there is higher power draw on the system....

  • Trailer Wiring Harnesses for 2004 Dodge Dakota
    Thank you for your recent order. The part you purchased, Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector # HM42190, is intended as a direct plug-in replacement for a factory-installed 7-way trailer connector. This plugs in directly with no cutting or splicing required to an OEM harness on vehicles equipped with the factory tow package and mounts without a bracket using included hardware. If your Dakota does not have the connector to mate with the plug on this harness it may be...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector for 2001 Dodge Ram 1500
    The Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness, # HM42190, will indeed fit your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. This wiring harness plugs directly into existing wiring and 7-way connector plugs into harness. Installation does not require any cutting or splicing.

  • Replacement 7-Way Recommendation for a 2000 Dodge Ram 3500
    Yes, the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector # HM42190 that you referenced will work as a 7-way replacement for your 2000 Dodge Ram 3500. It sounds like the dealer gave you a Mopar replacement part number that would also work. The # HM42190 is an aftermarket solution that will work just as well and will most likely cost less. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Wiring Harness to Add 7 Way to 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    It sounds like you have the square Chrysler connector behind your bumper. If that is the case you will want to use the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector # HM42190. This kit lets you add a 7-way, RV-style trailer connector to your Jeep Grand Cherokee with a factory tow package. This harness plugs into your existing wiring, and the 7-way connector plugs into harness. No cutting or splicing is necessary. Check out the demonstration video of this part that I have included.

  • Can Wire from Brake Lights on 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup be Connected to Factory 7-Way
    If the brake light pin for the 7 and 4-Way connectors on your 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup is not working, you can certainly pull power from the brake lights themselves and connect a wire to the existing 7-Way. This should resolve the issue you are having, which is actually a fairly common one for the computer systems on your model year Ram.

  • Replacement 7-Way and Harness Recommendation for a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500
    The easiest solution I can provide is going to be to replace the 7-way and wiring on your truck with the part # HM42190. I wish we had the harness of this by itself as it sounds like that is all you really need. But with this part number you will get a brand new 7-way that you could either use now or keep as a spare in case you ever need to replace yours.

  • Trailer Brakes Locking Up When Towed By 2006 Dodge Ram Truck
    Since you towed the trailer with your Ford and were not having any issues, and since you had problems with both the brakes locking up and the lights, we know the problem is with your 2006 Dodge Ram. The issue is almost certainly the harness being the problem, as it is likely corroded or the wiring right behind the plug is damaged. You can check the pins on the connector and if they are corroded you can try and clean them, but will very likely need a new 7-way. Assuming you have the factory...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector that Install in the Factory Location on a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500
    The Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector part # HM42190 is a direct fit for the factory rear bumper trailer connector cutout on your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. The wiring harness included with the trailer connector may or may not be needed depending on how your aftermarket wiring harness is installed. I have attached a review video of the above trailer connector for you as well.

  • What Does 7-Way Install Harness Look Like on 2005 Dodge Dakota
    Easiest way to determine if your 2005 Dodge Dakota has the wiring needed to install a 7-way like the part # HM42190 would be to look behind the rear bumper for the square connector that this plugs into. I attached a picture of what the connector looks like.

The wiring harness is 8 feet long, but any existing slack can be taken up and bundled up under the vehicle with zip ties. Using the T-Type connector will allow a 7-way to remain at the rear bumper while adding one to the truck bed, which you would not have if you simply relocated the existing 7-way to the truck bed.

I would recommend the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector, part # HM40940. This would replace just the 7-way mounted on your bumper, and comes with the mounting screws.

    Looks like somebody used quick splices to wire in the 7-way on your 2001 Dodge Ram and then when they removed the 7-way they just cut the wires leading to them. Thank you for the picture though as that helps me understand you setup very easily. Since it sounds like you are trying to install a second 7-way in the truck bed of your truck the easiest solution would be the part # HM42137 that would install inline with the factory 7-way wiring harness.
