How to Install Combination 4-Pole/7-Way Trailer Socket on 2004 Dodge Ram


I have a 2004 Dodge Ram w/ the 4 pole connector and a 1996 Coleman popup camper w/ a 7 blade connector and need something to adapt the two together. I would like a rear bumper mount for the 7 blade pollack and be able to plug the 4 pin on the truck into the back of it. I need to be able to make this a plug and play as i have a jetski trailer that has the 4 pin on it and dont want to alter the truck harness. My truck has a factory opening in the bumper for a plug that I believe would work for the 7 blade pollack. Can you help?


Expert Reply:

Since you need to tow two trailers with different types of wiring, one each with a 4-pole flat connector and with a 7-way blade style, you can install our # ETBC7 kit. This includes a combination 4-pole/7-way vehicle socket and all the connectors and wiring needed to install it.

Your existing 4-pole will plug right in to the mating connector on the 7-way and you'll then make the other circuit connections for 12V power, reverse light signal and trailer brakes. I have linked both an article and video to illustrate the process.
