Recommended Wiring Harness for an In Bed 7-Way Connector on a 2000 Dodge Ram


I have a 2000 Dodge 2500 diesel that has the mopar tow package that I am planning to install a gooseneck plug round 7 blade in the bed near the left rear of the bed. FYI-My trailer already has a Hopkins connector on it. Which wiring harness do I need? Is it the HM42137? However, my current bumper plug needs replaced too which has an easy push on wiring connector. Can you provide the correct items I need for my 2000 Dodge 2500 and I prefer Hopkins?


Expert Reply:

To add a 7-Way connector to the bed of your 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 you will need the Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness item # HM42137. This harness puts a 7-way connector in the bed of your truck and allows you to keep the one on your bumper. This makes hooking up to your 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer easier and more convenient.

I have linked an installation video below.

To replace the 7-way on your bumper you're going to want the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way item # HM40940.

If you would like a replacement 7-way harness that also includes a 4-flat connector you will want the item # HM40920.
