Review of Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 118496


Today we'll be reviewing part number 118496. This is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness from Tow Ready. This is going to provide a 4-way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. To see if this is going to fit your particular year, make and model, you can refer to the vehicle list at the bottom of the product page. This is going to be compatible with 5-pole, 6-pole and 7-pole adapters that are sold separately. The 4-way flat connector also has a nice dust cap that slips over the connection points. Just to keep them protected from the elements.

It is attached so you dont have to worry about losing that. A great advantage of this system is that it connects quickly and easily so no cutting or splicing of wires required. All you got to do is locate the connection point either behind the tail lights or along frame rail and plug in T-connectors. It's going to include the tail light converter that's going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailers. The unit's constructed of 16-gauge bonded wire. It's going to comes with the dust cap for the 4-way flat like I said earlier.

Again, that is attached. When it comes to maximum amperage, the stop and turn lights are going to be 2.1 amps per circuit. Your tail lights are going to be 7.5 amps per circuit. Just to go over a few other things that you're going to get. You're going to get the complete harness, its got the ground wire attached with the ring terminal. You're going to get a larger zip tie, two smaller zip ties, a self tapping screw and a knot. The knot and the self tapping screw are design to secure the ring terminal for the ground connection depending on your application.

You're going to have to either drill into a nice clean metal surface or you can use the knot and attach it to a pre-existing ground connections. Again, you got the knot and the self tapping screw. You're going to use one or the other depending on your application. For the install, this is a custom-fit T-One connectors going to plug into your vehicle's wiring harness. It is going to be located on the driver's side and passenger's side, either behind the tail lights or along the frame rail. If your wiring harness is behind the tail lights, you will have to remove the tail light assemblies to gain access. Once you have everything connected and the installation is complete.

The 4-way flat connector can be stored beneath the vehicles rear, down by the hitch. We do recommend a mounting bracket that's going to be sold separately. That's just going to keep the connector secure and up out of the way. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections like the plugs on your vehicle and the 4-pole connector itself. That's going to help prevent corrosion. Then the tail light converter, because most trailers run on a two-wire system, the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicles through our systems need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. The tail light converter combines the brake and turn signal functions of your vehicle so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's lights. Keep in mind that this will not affect how the tail lights on your vehicle operate. I think that's going to do it for our review of part number 118496. This is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness from Tow Ready. .
