What Do I Need To Tow A Pop-Up Trailer With My 2021 Chrysler Pacifica


I am interested in towing a pop-up trailer with my 2021 Chrysler Pacifica. What do I need?


Expert Reply:

If you want to tow a pop-up trailer with your 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, you will need the following: hitch receiver, 4-way connector, 7-way connector, brake controller. Here are my recommended parts.

Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2", part # 76046. It has a maximum tongue weight of 675 lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight of 4,500 lbs.

Upgraded Heavy Duty ModuLite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness with Installation Kit, part # 119190KIT. This wiring harness will provide with a 4- way connector. Your trailer will be able to mirror your Chrysler Pacifica's brake lights, turn signals, and running lights.

Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller - 2 Braking Modes - 1 to 3 Axles - Proportional, part # RED44FR. This brake controller has an accelerometer, so it can be installed in any direction in your tow vehicle.

Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller - 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat - 10 Gauge Wires, part # ETBC7. Once this wiring kit is installed you will have the ability to power a brake controller, mirror your tow vehicle’s reverse lights, and have 12V power.

The last items I recommend whenever someone is doing some wiring installation is dielectric grease and a circuit tester. The grease because it will help fight corrosion in your system and the circuit tester for troubleshooting. The part numbers are Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, 2 oz. part # 11755, and the Hook Probe Circuit Tester,
part # PTW2993.

I have included product description links, demo video links, and a video installation link below.
