How To Wire 6-Way Square Connector on 2000 Viking Popup to 2001 Mazda Tribute With 4-Way Flat


Is there a ready made connecting harness between 2000 Viking popup 6-Way square and 2001 Mazda Tribute 4-Way flat? I do not need anything other than lights so the six way is not necessary. Thanks.

I do have a few solutions to wire your 2000 Viking with 6-way Square to your 2001 Mazda Tribute 4-Way flat.

The first option would be to cut off the 6-way connector on your Viking Popup Camper, and wire in a 4-way connector by function. You will want to use Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector - Trailer End - Ergonomic Design. part # HM48110. To wire, you will want to wire the labeled color wire on part # HM48110 to the matching wires on your trailer.

Another option would be to use part # HM48110, and 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector Kit, part # 37995. To make this connection you would plug part # HM48110 into the 4-way on your Mazda Tribute. then you would cut off the trailer end of 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector, part # 37995 and hard-wire the wire from the 4-way connector to the wires of the 6-way and tape up the 2 extra wires. Then the vehicle end of of the 6-way connector would plug into the 6-way of your trailer.

Either option will work as you will be able to keep the 4-way connector on your vehicle. You will want to use quick splices, part # SWC501915-1 to connect the wires. I recommend wrapping the connections in electrical tape.
