ELECTRICAL TIPS & DIAGRAMS

WIRE INSTALLATION TIPS

By law, trailer lighting must be connected into the tow vehicles wiring system to provide trailer running lights, turn signals and brake lights. This is accomplished by tapping into the tow vehicles electrical harness to transfer power to the trailer wiring system. Connectors are used between the two to allow disengagement when not towing.

CONNECTORS

Various styles of connectors are available with four to seven pins to allow transfer of power for the lighting as well as auxiliary functions such as electric trailer brake control, backup lights etc.Choose a connector that has the required number of pins for the functions required. The male end is mounted on the vehicle side and the female on the trailer side.

4 WAY CONNECTORS

Flat, molded connectors are available allowing the basic hookup of the three lighting functions and ground.Round 1-1/4" knock-out style can be permanently mounted directly onto all Hidden Hitch products or onto a separate plug mounting bracket. This provides a clean installation and avoids the potential problems associated with leaving a plug dangling from the rear of the towing vehicle.
