Review of Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 118567


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 118567. This is the T1 Vehicle Wiring Harness with the four pole flat trailer connector. This product is going to fit certain years of the Dodge Journey. It's going to provide your four way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. This is compatible with five pole, six pole, and seven pole adapters. Adapters are sold separately, and it's going to come with a dust cap.

It's tethered directly to the plug housing. That way you can protect the connection points when the plug's not being used. It simply just goes over, slides down over those terminals. The black box right here, is going to be the included modulight. This is going to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. The power module is going to connect directly to the vehicle battery through the wiring to avoid overloading the vehicle's electrical system. Now one of the main benefits of a system like this is that it is designed to connect quickly and easily.

All you have to do is locate the connection points behind your tail lights, gain acess to those, and then you're going to have two sets of connectors. The set with the green wire is going to go to the passenger's side of the vehicle. The set with the yellow and brown wire, that's going to go to the driver's side of the vehicle. Now this is a custom fit vehicle wiring harness, so these plugs are going to match up perfectly with the plugs on your vehicle. All you've got to do is plug them in. It's got the locking tabs that will engage for a nice, tight, secure connection. Once you have those connected, you'll make a ground connection.

It's going to be the white wire with the ring terminal attached to it. You can ground that with the included self-tapping screw, make sure you get that to a nice, clean metal surface. Then you can secure the converter box. You want to do this to a nice, clean, out of the way location. It's going to come with some double-sided adhesive tape.

This one already has some foam tape installed on it, but it's going to come with another piece as well, and it's got a little hole back here. You could either use the tape, use a zip tie, or you could use another screw to get that attached. Once you have that done, you'll need to run the hot lead to the vehicle battery. Hot lead's going to be the red wire coming out of the converter box. That's going to get attached to the bundle of black wire with one of the included bud connectors. The other end of the black wire is going to run to the vehicle battery. It's going to get another bud connector attached to it, and it's going to get connected to one half of your fuse holder. The other half of the fuse holder is going to get the ring terminal attached to it, and that's going to connect to the positive post on the vehicle battery. It does include your 10 amp fuse. Goes right here in the fuse holder, and it's got the fuse cap to keep it protected. Once you have that done, you can go and secure any excess or slack in the wiring with the included zip ties. It's also going to come with your detailed instructions. These are going to help walk you through the installation process step by step. Then once your installation is complete, the four way connectors' going to be stowed beneath the vehicle near the trailer hitch. You can loop it around the safety chain loop or you can purchase a mounting bracket. It is sold separately, and that's going to be recommended to keep the connector secure. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 2.1 amps per circuit, and for the tail lights we're looking at 5.6 amps per circuit. It's also recommended that you use a small amount of dielectric grease on all your electrical connections like the plugs on the vehicle and the four pole connector itself to help prevent corrosion. If you need some of that grease, you can find that here at etrailer.com, and that's going to be sold separately also. That's going to do it for today's look at part number 118567.
