I did some more trailer has a Pollak style plug, flat blade contacts, and one center contact 7 total. WIll the factory Ford Escape 2011 wiring system adapt to this without butchery?


Expert Reply:

Yes, your 2011 Ford Escape can work with the 7-way connector that is on your trailer.

If you have a 4-way present at the rear of your vehicle you would need a Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. I have attached installation instructions and a video of this product being installed on a similar vehicle to show you what its like.

If you do not have a 4-way connector present at the rear of your vehicle you would first need a Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring for the Ford Escape, part # 118551. I attached installation instructions for this wiring harness for you.
