How to Install a Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness on a 2015 Ram 2500


Today we'll be reviewing and installing the Pollak Fifth Wheel Gooseneck T-connector with 7-pole, part number PK11893-11932 on a 2015 Ram 2500. This is how our new seven-way connector looks when it's installed for 5th wheel and gooseneck hitches. Here, if we open the lid of our connector, you can the seven pins inside. On the front of this spring-loaded lid, it's got a key to let you know which pin correlates to which function, and we've got these four silver 5/16 head self-tapping screws. Here we've got the T-connector. You unplug the factory connector, and plug it into one end of the T, and the other end plugs into the factory 7-way, which then splits your power and sends it all the way up to your new 7-way connector in the bed.

Now we're going to show you how to install it. With the plug, it shows you how to connect these. You're going to want to go ahead and put these spades into the connector. When you hear them click, we're going to push them up in there, you know they're going to be nice and secure. The white one goes in the number 2 slot, the red one goes in the number 1. Then we've got the brown one here, that's going to go in the number 6 slot over here.

The yellow wire is going to go into the center, which is number 7. Then in our number 3 slot, we're going to be putting the blue wire. In our number 4 will be green, and then finally in our number 5, we put the black wire. Now those are all nice and secure in there. Now we'll go to the other side, to the face of our connector.

We're going to take this, and with the collar down, you want to pop that in there. Next thing we want to do is grab our 7-pole connector and find a good spot that we want to mount it. Once we've found where we want to mount it inside of our bed, we want to look to make sure that there's plenty of room and that we won't damage anything behind it by drilling. If it looks like if we drill a hole right up here, it's nice and open, so we shouldn't have any problems with any damage. We can go ahead and grab a 2" hole saw and start to make a hole. We can check and make sure that our 7-pole connector fits in there.

Very nice. Then we'll go ahead and clean this up a little bit and then we'll get ready to secure this in and then run our wiring up to it. we're going to go ahead and start doing the wiring. The first thing you want to do is you're going to squeeze on this tab here to pull that connector off the back of the factory 7-way. Then you want to take a little bit of dielectric grease and put it on the contact points inside your new connector, which is going to go into this. That's going to help prevent corrosion from any water or anything else that may get in there. Tighten that until you hear that click, then we'll do the same thing with the ones going into the factory one. You can see that this is T'd off, so this will still work along with the new 5th wheel inaudible 00:03:38. Then you want to pop that white tab in to make it nice and secure once it's in place. Before I run the rest of this wiring up to the 5th wheel 7-way connector, I want to to go ahead and zip tie this up, so it's not bouncing around, hitting anything and possibly compromising the wires. Nice and secure right there, and then we can cut off our tail. Now we can start running this wiring up towards our new connector. Like to keep it tucked out of the way as much as possible so it's not hanging down. You can see that there's some factory wires that run up over here, so that makes it a good location. I'm going to run it through this hole in the support bracket right here. As we go upwards into this rear fender, I've got my hole right up here. What I'm going to do is I'm going to go ahead and feed this right through that hole so that it stays up there. Then we can plug it in our 7-way before we secure our 7-way down. Now we've got this wire run up here. What we're going to go ahead and do before we plug it into our connector is again put a little bit of dielectric grease in there. Then we want to plug it in. Hear that click, pop that white tab in to make sure it's nice and secure, then we can go ahead and push it back in to where our hole is. Then we grab a few self-tapping screws, which these ones are 5/16. You'll want to make sure it's nice and level, then proceed to put them in. Now with those in place, see it's nice and secure. With our 7-pole installed up in the bed, we now know how much wire we're going to need, so we can go back and re-secure any loose wire we've got. We've got a zip tie here, to re-secure that, and I've got a couple more over here. One here, and one here, which help bundle it up and hold that excess up out of the way. Now that we've finished hooking everything up, we've got this tester hooked into our new plug so that we can make sure that everything works and we've got power for everything. Let's go ahead and test the left turn signal, right turn signal, brake lights, and running lights. As you can see, everything's working, so we're in good shape. That's going to complete our look at the Pollak 5th wheel gooseneck T-connector with 7-pole, part number PK11893-11932.
