How to Install the Curt 5th Wheel Wiring Harness on a 2014 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty


Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today on our 2014 Ford F-250, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck In Bed Trailer Wiring. So this connector is going to make towing your Fifth Wheel or Gooseneck Trailer just a little bit easier. You're able to just simply plug the trailer wiring directly into here, as opposed to having to drape your wiring over the tailgate, plug it down by the bumper. This is going to simplify things a little bit. You're not going to have to worry about that wiring scratching up your tailgate or potentially coming unplugged.

This is just going to make that experience a little bit easier on you.So I will say this kit is really well-made. Once you get it in your hands, you can tell it's pretty heavy duty so it should last you a long time. The connector plug itself is pretty low profile actually, so it's not going to take up a bunch of space. And since it is off to the side, you shouldn't have to worry too much about throwing something into your bed and damaging the plug. So nice feature there.

It is going to have a spring loaded cap, that way whenever you're not using it, it'll stay nice and sealed. That way we don't have to worry about any dirt or debris getting inside of there. And whenever you do have your plug connected in there, if you look on the bottom of the cap, there's a little catcher. And so what that catcher is going to do, is rest against your plug and prevent it from accidentally getting pulled out.And since the kit actually just uses a T-connector, you're still able to use the seven way mounted on your bumper as well. So you're not going to have to sacrifice one for the other.

And because of this T-connector, it's going to make installation very easy. It shouldn't take you hardly any time at all. Speaking of which let's go ahead and do that together now. To begin your install, you're going to hop up in the bed of your truck and over here on the driver's side, we're going to need to find a spot to mount up our plug. So I like to do it right here in this area.

And what I've done is found a good spot and put a dot there, that way we can create an opening for our plug to go into.Now, before you do this, you want to check underneath the truck and make sure that you're not going to drill through anything or into something accidentally. So I checked underneath there and we're all clear. So now I'll go ahead and use a hole saw to create our opening. And just to help prevent any rust or corrosion issues. I do suggest taking a paint stick or some spray paint and covering up that bare metal that's exposed from the hole that we created. I'm just going to grab my vacuum and clean up all of our shavings that we created.Now we can grab our harness and we're going to take the T-connector side here that has two ends, we're going to feed it through that hole and drop it down to the underside of our truck. Now these can be a little tricky sometimes, you might have to play with it and find which one goes in easiest first, that way you can get it all pushed down. Once we have them through the hole, just feed it all the way down until we have about a foot of wiring left exposed here in the bed. So what I like to do is take this end of our plug and just put some dielectric grease on the terminals, this will really help prevent any corrosion issues. And if you want some of this, you can pick it up here at etrailer. So we'll apply that coating.You can take our connector plug here and simply pair the two together. With it plugged in, we can put the plug into the opening. I'm just going to try to hold it where it's straight and level, and then we're going to secure it using the provided self-tapping screw. So now underneath the truck, you could see this is where our T-connector dropped down, and now we need to plug this into the factory seven way wiring. So you're going to have to remove it from the factory plug. In our case, ours is broke a little bit, so we we're able to just slide it off. But usually there's a little tab here that you have to push down and pull at the same time, to break it free from the plug. But the way it's going to work is really simple, we're just going to grab some dielectric grease before we plug these in and just give these terminals a good coating too.Do both ends here. So one end of the T-connector, it's going to plug in that factory plug and the other end of the T-connector, we'll go back to the factory seven way. We now have a ton of room to work here. So what I might end up doing is just removing these two 10-millimeter bolts here, holding our bracket on, plug it in and then just re-install it. Put that one on, put these back together, then we can just re-install our bracket. So I went ahead and secured our wiring. This is what it looks like. I just ran it up and over. Had quite a bit extra here, so I just pushed it up and zip tied it. And this is where it runs up to the inside of our truck bed. Now we can go ahead and test our wiring to make sure the functions are working.So we'll hit our running lights, our left turn signal, our right turn signal, our brake lights, our brake controller signal. And as you can see, we have our 12-volt auxiliary power as well. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the Curt Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck In Bed Trailer Wiring on our 2014 Ford F-250..
