Yes you will have to hook up a adapter. The only reason that you would not have to do this is if your vehicle came with the complete tow package, meaning shocks and tighter springs and everything else. But most of these models require a adapter to run electric brakes

Ask dealer if it has a towing package on it. If it does, you usually just pop fuse in under hood for electric brakes, and harness to adapt into is usually near or at rear bumper. Even if it doesn't have brake wire, you should still be able to install adapter at rear,for lights etc. which is available from dealer or auto supply places, then you may have to run electric brakes separate.

I have a 06 town & country with a four pin wiring harness. Our pop-up camper has a 7 pin round plug. I used an adapter to connect them but it caused a blown fuse; was told by shop that would have...


I'm assuming your pop up is big enough to have electric brakes, thus the 7 pin connector. If it doesn't, you can use an adapter (probably like you have) provided the 4 pin was wired correct in first place, but if not, figuring out what's what, shouldn't be difficult. If you do have brakes on the trailer, then the law requires it to be wired such that the brakes are operational. If your thinking of tackling this yourself, and are reasonably familiar with 12 volt wiring, we may be able to help, if not, any hitch installation place, or RV center should be able to give you a reasonable price to wire it properly for you.They usually know what wires to splice into without replacing any harness, as well as have knowledge of proper installation for electric brakes as well. Usually ends up being a choice of a higher labor price, but less time for those experienced in doing that, or paying an inexperienced guy a lower labor rate, but takes him twice as long. personally I'd go with those who do it all the time.

Need wirering diagram to hook up trailer lights and elecric break


Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info. With the tow package, there should be a plug under the dash... far left above the emerg. brake petal. The harness that plugs into it should have came with the truck, or you can order one to fit it. Did thew truck come with a 7 pin plug on the back? If not you can order one from the above mentioned site. They also have the wiring colors.

Trailer harness - Red wire has no power


Hi: under the hood in the power distribution box there is a 40 Amp fuse that has to be installed to power up the trailer package. When standing looking from the front left fender it should be at the front right corner, refer to the power distribution diagram on the cover. As well under the box by the spare tire is a plug in type module mounted on the frame. There should be 2 wire harnesses located there, make sure the correct plug in is connected. Hope this helps... please rate suggestion .... ty

Brake controller not communicating w/ 7 pin connector


what type controller did you install? Is this a camper or trailer? Is the controller hydraulic plumbed into master cylyder? Important to know how to adjust rheostat for sensitivity. If set at minimum the system is basically on the edge of not sending any signal to towed unit. The intructions should explain how to make this adjustment. If set too sensitive trailer brakes will lock up before the tow vehcle starts to brake. Controller should be set so trailer starts braking just befor the tow vehcle. If not the trailer will tax the tow vehicle brakes by pushing. Its set right when you feel the combination stretching out. trailer first then tow vehcle. Good luck and remember, if truck brakes first and too hard you risk a jacknife. All light voltages should be system voltage. Brake voltage is variable depending on setting on controller. Understand your breakaway brakes and how they work. breakaway breaks require an auxillary battery. Again, good luck and you know where to find me if I can be of anymore help.
