How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty


Today on our 2011 Ford F-350 SuperDuty, we're going to be installing the Bargman 5th wheel and Gooseneck 90-degree wiring harness with a 7-pole plug, part number 54701-003. Now in the bed of the vehicle, this is what our wiring harness looks like. Now, we're going to need to drill the hole through the side of the bed to mount a plug here for our wiring harness. Now that we have our location chosen, we're going to need to use a 2 inch hole saw to drill the hole in the side of the bed. Now, we'll go ahead and take the end of our wiring harness with the two plugs on it. We'll need to feed it through the hole. We'll then use the four self-tapping screws, that come with the kit, to secure the plug to the side of the bed. Next, we're going to need to move down here underneath the vehicle. Now, we've already gone ahead and removed the spare tire to give ourselves a little more working room.

We're going to need to come right here to the back side of the factory 7-way plug. We're going to need to unplug it. To remove the factory 7-way plug wiring harness, we'll need to simply push in on this tab right here and gently pull outward. Next, now to make things little easier, we're going to go ahead and remove this factory 7 and 4-way plug. To do that, simply push in on the metal tab here, and once you get each of the tabs loose, simply slide the plug out. There is a tab there and a tab there. Next, we're going to take our wiring harness.

We're going to route it over to the factory 7-way plug. Next, we're going to take the one-half of our wiring harness and connect it to the factory wiring harness. You'll notice there is already a little dielectric grease installed there. We'll push it together until we feel it click in place. Now for the other half, we're going to be installing a little bit of dielectric grease, this is part number 11755. Now, we'll take the other end of the wiring harness.

We'll connect it back into the 7-way plug. With our connection made, we can go ahead and put the plug back into the bracket, and then we'll take some zip ties and secure up any excess wire underneath the vehicle. Go ahead and trim off any excess zip tie, as well as put the spare tire back up into position. That will do it for the installation of the Bargman 5th wheel and Gooseneck 90-degree wiring harness with a 7-pole plug, part number 54701-003 on our 2011 Ford F-350 SuperDuty. .
