tow Bar Wiring and Avoiding Back Feeding to Trailer Connector on a 2017 Toyota Tacoma


For towing the Tacoma I have ordered RM-15267. Can I feed back through the factory 7 pin connector for my lights.


Expert Reply:

On regular trailer wiring like the factory 7-Way on your 2017 Toyota Tacoma you cannot send power through it backwards to power the vehicle lights when flat towing the Tacoma. It is designed for one direction only and likely is not even tied into the vehicle tail lights like many aftermarket set ups are. So if you just wired up # RM-15267 as planned it will be good to go because it does tie into the vehicle tail lights and won't interfere with the factory trailer wiring on the truck.
