Best 2009 Chevrolet Equinox Trailer Wiring Options


Today we'll be taking a look at the best wiring options for your 2009 Chevrolet Equinox. Up top here, we've got the inaudible 00:00:07 T1, part number 118432, then here on bottom we've got the Curt, part number C56012. The biggest difference between these two harnesses is on the T1, it's got this eyelet, that's separate for the ground wire, where on the Curt, the ground wire's built in to the connector, so that it grounds to the vehicle's factory electrical system. Another difference is that here on the T1 connector, the dust cover is molded into the four pull plug. Then on the Curt, the dust cover's separate, so you'll slide it over in order to cover your plug. With both of these wiring kits, they're going to install the exact same way. They're going to have three fuses, and two relays that are going to need to be installed in the under-hood fuse box.

On the Equinox that we have here today, we've got the T1 installed, and it's right here behind the jack cover. You can see that it's right there, the plug is just down below there. In order to install it, all you have to do is remove the jack, and your spare tire tools, and you can access that plug. Both the T1 and the Curt are going to be very easy to use. You simply pull them out from inside your jack compartment, unwind it, then you pull it out, and leave it set here.

Then you can close your tailgate, and both of these harnesses are going to give you five feet of wire. That should be plenty to connect to whatever type of trailer or cargo carrier you may have back here. Both of these wiring kits are also going to be rated at 7.5 amps on all circuits. The biggest determining factor for which wiring you want is going to be do you want to install the extra ground eyelet, or do you want to just be able to plug your connector in We hope this helps in the decision making process for wiring, for your Chevrolet Equinox.
