Mounting Bracket to Attach Factory Trailer Connector on 2000 Chevy Silverado to a Curt Trailer Hitch

Question:

I have 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 with factory tow package. So it has a factory receiver with a mount for the RV plug. So how can I mount the factory RV plug to the C15323?

First, you are going to have to remove the factory trailer hitch in order to install Curt trailer hitch # C15323. The Curt hitch does not have a feature pre-made to attach the factory wiring harness and connector to the hitch but we have some items that may allow you to transplant it to the new hitch.

First, you might be interested in easy mount bracket # C58000 that fits around the receiver on the hitch and has locations to attach a 6- or 7-Way or 4- or 5-Way. I have linked a video for you to see how it works.

We also have mounting boxes like # 18159 that will hold a 6- or 7-Way and attach to the hitch with what is essentially a hose clamp.

You do not want to drill into the hitch because that can weaken it and void the hitch warranty. We have numerous options depending on your specific needs and I have included a link to them for you.
