How to Install a Hopkins Endurance Fifth Wheel Wiring Harness on a 2012 Ram 2500


Today on our 2012 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Series, we'll be installing the Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel and Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with a 7-Pole Plug. Part Number 41157. We're going to need to go ahead and choose a location to mount our 7-way plug. Somewhere here looks pretty good. Go ahead and take our hole saw. Now that we have our hole in the bed, we're going to go ahead and take this in to the wiring harness and feed it up into the bed.

Put just enough in so that it stays in place. Now we're going to go ahead and take some of the terminal grease that comes with the kit. Go ahead and put it here on our connection before we plug it in. You can then go ahead and line up the tabs, the locking tab that's right here on our plug. Go ahead and plug it together making sure that it clicks into position then go ahead and feed our wiring back down in. Next we're going to go ahead and mount the 7-way plug to the wall of the bed of the vehicle. We use these self-tapping screws supplied with the kit as well as the flat washers, sliding them into place like that. We'll go ahead and secure the 7-way plug with all four screws and washers.

Now we'll go ahead and take our double end. Go ahead and feed it up and over the frame here. Next we're going to need to undo the factory plug off the factory 7- and 4-way. To do that, there's a little locking tab right there. Simply push in on that locking tab.

Pull the plug off. Next we'll go ahead and add a little more of the terminal grease to our connection points before we put them together so we're going to take the double end of the wiring harness. Go ahead and add some there. Also go ahead and add a little more in here to the factory connection point. Go ahead and line up these two here. Plug them together.

Make sure that they click into place and the locks actually grab and go ahead and take our other half, plug that into the back of the original 7-way plug. Now with that done, we can go ahead and use a couple zip ties to secure up any excess wire. Now we'll go ahead and trim off any excess zip tie. Finally we need to connect our white wire with the ring terminal on it to the frame of the vehicle. This is our ground. We'll do this by using a self tapping screw. That'll do it for our installation of the Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel and Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with a 7-Pole Plug. Part Number 41157 on our 2012 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500. .
