Review of Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring C55243


Today we're going to review part number C55243. This is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for the Factory Tow Package. This is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the 1999 to 2001 Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty Trucks with the factory 4-way connector. This part will include everything shown here; the harness, the 7-way plug, two relays, two fuses and some detailed instructions. This does provide a 7-way blade style trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is designed for use with a vehicle that has a factory tow package.

It does connect quickly and easily. There is no cutting or splicing of wires. Basically what you would do is locate the connection point, which on those vehicles would be on the driver side frame rail in the rear. You'll see a plug-in connector that'll match this one. Usually it'll have a plug in it.

You'll have to pull it out. This connector will plug into this and then you can run this all the way to the back bumper and that's where you'll install. This will slide on to the 7-way just like that. You have the 7-way blade at the rear. It does include the required relays and the fuses to activate the functions. It does come with a nice protective cover on the 7-way, you can see, spring loaded cover that'll keep the elements out of the connector there.

Basically what you have to do is once you install your harness with the 7-way at the back of the vehicle, you need to go to the power distribution box in the vehicle and install these two fuses, 30 amp fuses, in the power distribution box. The relays, you'll need to go to your owner's manual and on the owner's manual you'll need to find out where the relay location is for the trailer tow back up lamp relay and the trailer tow battery charge relay. That would be what the two relays are for. Once those are installed you'll be ready to go. That should do it for the review for part number C55243, the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for the Factory Tow Package. .
