Parts Needed to Install 7 Way Trailer Plug on a 2021 Hyundai Palisade


It appears the 2021 Hyundai Palisade now comes with a 7 pin port in the back of the vehicle. Which kit will allow me to wire that port to a 7 pin mounted near a hitch?

I have a solution for you, but the port you're referring to does not allow the direct installation of a 7 way trailer plug on your 2021 Hyundai Palisade. If you don't have a 4 way plug already there, you'll need to start by installing one; for that I recommend using the Curt # CU94FR instead of the available Tekonsha harness since the Curt comes with a powered converter box that will do a better job of protecting the electrical system on your 2021 Palisade in the event of a short on the trailer wiring. The Curt # CU94FR plugs directly into the port you're referring to and provides the base wiring for a 7 way plug.

It looks like you might be wanting to use a brake controller like the Curt Echo # C51180, so for the 7 way installation kit I recommend using the # ETBC7L since it doesn't require the running of a brake controller wire into the cab of the vehicle. This will have the # CU94FR plug directly into it, and then you'll need to make additional connections to the battery, ground and reverse light circuit or 12v auxiliary power. This will allow you to use the Curt Echo mobile brake controller on your 2021 Hyundai Palisade.

I've linked some installation videos of these parts or similar ones that will allow you to have a guide for installation.
