How to Install a Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness on a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado


Today on our 2013 Chevy Silverado we'll be installing the Draw-Tite 5th Wheel Gooseneck Wiring Harness with seven blade connector, part number 20110. To begin our install we'll first go ahead and locate where we'll be mounting our new seven blade connector. Because on this application we have a storage box on the driver's side, we're going to put our seven blade connector here on the passenger's side. For this application we're going to mount it here above the cargo hook at the recess of the pickup bed. To mount it we'll need to drill out a two inch hole. We'll make our pilot hole first and then we'll take our pole saw bit and drill out the larger two inch hole.

Once we have our hole drilled out we'll take the new harness and feed the single end up behind the pickup bed wall and between the outside fender, and then out the hole. Then we can go ahead and take the wiring connector and secure it to the back of the seven pole connector. We'll go ahead and check and make sure it's locked in place. Now we're ready to mount our seven pole. Using the self-tapping screws provided with our install kit we'll go ahead and secure it directly to the bedside. Now once we have our seven blade connector secured we'll go ahead and move underneath the vehicle.

We'll take our wiring harness and route it over behind the bumper to the manufacturers seven pole connector mounted in the bumper. Keep in mind when routing your wires, keep away from any moving components, the steering, or suspension, or excessive heat such as the exhaust. Now with the bulk of our harness routed we'll need to disconnect the manufacturer's seven pole wiring harness from the connector. It's got the same style connector lock as we have on the new seven blade connector. Pull back on the gray tab, press on the connector lock, and remove it from the back of the seven pole. We can then take the manufacturer's harness and plug it directly into the new wiring harness, close the locking tab, and then install the new connector into the back of the manufacturer's seven plate connector in the back of the bumper.

Now, once we have the connection made we'll go ahead and use some zip ties and secure our wiring as necessary. We'll cut off the excess from our zip ties to clean up the install look. With that, that'll complete the install of the Draw-Tite 5th Wheel Gooseneck Seven Way Wiring Harness, part number 20110, on our 2013 Chevy Silverado. .
