Review of Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 118271

Today we will be reviewing part number 118271. This is the Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness for factory tow packages. This is a 7-way trailer connector, designed to currently fit 2013 and 2014 GMC Acadias, all models, Buick Enclave all models, and Chevrolet Traverse all models. This is going to provide that 7-way blade style of trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. It is designed for use with factory tow packages and compatible 4 pull, 5 pull, and 6 pull adaptors that are sold separately. This system connects quickly and easily. No cutting or splicing of wires is needed.

It is constructed of a nice 16-gauge bonded wire. It also has a wire protectant that goes around the wires to help keep them out of harm's way. The custom fit T1 connector is going to plus into your vehicle's factory tow package wiring harness, which is going to be located beneath the vehicle near the frame rail on the passenger side. Once you have made those connections, you can then insert the included fuses and relays into their locations in the fuse box, which is located in the engine compartment. Once you have your installation complete, the 7-way connector will be stowed beneath your vehicle near the trailer hitch. We do recommend a mounting bracket that is sold separately, just to help keep the connector secure.

It is also recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections. The plugs on your automobile and the 7-pole connector itself, to help prevent further corrosion. It could happen down the road. It also comes with a a couple of zip ties to help clean up your installed look and to get your wiring up out of the way. I believe that's going to complete today's review of part number 118271. This is the Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness for factory tow packages.
