Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - C56227 Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the four way flat trailer connector. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Nissan Leaf vehicles and on a custom fit part like this, I do like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this'll work for your application.Now this harness will provide this nice four way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is compatible with five pole, six pole and seven pole adapters that we do sell separately on our website.

And this does connect very quickly and easily. Basically, just locate your connection points, which are in the trunk behind the taillights, plug in these T-connectors one on each side, one on the driver's side, one on the passenger side, ground your white wire here and run this power wire to your vehicle's battery.Now it does include this black box here. This is your tail light converter. This is to ensure that your vehicle's wiring will match that of your trailer. It is a power module, that's why it connects directly to the vehicle's battery and that's to avoid overloading your vehicle's electrical system.

This converter is constructed using SMT technology, which is surface mount technology. It's designed for consistent reliable performance, does maximize your trailer light yield and intensity, while producing minimal heat. Also ensures superior operation in any rough road conditions. This also comes with this nice dust cap for your four-way. So you can attach it to the four way and leave it on there if you prefer.

And when you're not plugged into a trailer, if you're not using it, just put that cap on there and it'll protect those terminals from any damage or from the elements.A few specs on this harness, the maximum amperage for the stop and turn light circuits is three amps per circuit, tail lights is six amps per circuit. Does come with a nice set of detailed instructions that'll describe how to install everything with pictures. But just basically, I want to go through it real quick, how to install. So what you'll do is go to the rear of your vehicle and you'll start on the driver's side and you'll take this T-connector that has the yellow wire in it. That's for the driver's side.

And as we mentioned, you'll go behind the tail lights, unplug the harness, plug this T-connector on that side. And then you'll have this white wire with the eyelet on it that you'll need to connect to a good clean ground if there's one nearby. If not, they do give you a grounding screw that you can make your own ground. And then you'll take the other T-connector with the green wire, that's the passenger side, run this length of wire over to the passenger side and do the same, plug this in behind the tail light.Once those are all plugged in, this converter box is heavy. You don't want it bouncing around. So you want to attach it to a good, flat surface. They do give you a nice piece of double face tape that you can attach it down with. Run your bonded wire with your four way out the back towards the trailer. And then your last connection is this power wire. This will run to the front of the vehicle to connect to your battery. So they give you this length of wire to do that and the connectors. So you'll take a butt connector and install it to one end of this length of wire, and then run this wire up toward the front of the vehicle.When you get to the front, you don't want to connect this directly to the battery. You want to run it through the inline fuse holder. So take the second butt connector, attach it to one side of the feed holder, just like that. Once that's connected, take the eyelet connector, put it on the other end, and that'll want to connect to your battery. Once that connects it, take your 10 amp fuse, install it in your fuse holder, close the fuse holder, and you're all ready to go. They do give you some extra cable ties to take up any slack in the wiring.But that should do it for the review on the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with the four-way flat trailer connector.
