Is the hot wire on the trailer plug fused. If so where can it be located.


Follow the wire back up under the hood to see where it is connected. Sometimes there is an external circuit breaker or the wire may go into the fuse box under the hood It just depends on who installed it.

Trailer - brake lights don't work on one trailer - work fine on other....


You have to many bulbs running for the size wire you can get into a 7 pin plug. You will have to up grade to a heavy vehicle plug which is around 2" in dia.. Next the stop light draw 25 watts each so if you have 3 trailers that ia 6 x25 watts x12 volts will indicate how many amps you are pulling when the brakes come on. Next you can change the wiring so that each bulb is connected in parallel not series that is the first 2 lights have one wire the 2nd bulbs will have a different wire out of the same pin and so on for the rest of the trailers. So what you will have will be say for 3 trailers the trailer plug will have wire to the first trailer and out of the same pin will be another wire that will go to the socket for the second trailer and so on That way the wire carrying the load will be the vehicle wire that you should have relayed any way. So you have a big current wire to the relay that is connected to the power pin of the socket. The relay is activated by the stop light wire to earth. This closes the relay and the heavy wire conducts current directly to the stop light pin of the first trailer and is piggy backed to the second socket and so on.. IN the end you will have only 2 bulbs working on each wire and not a multiple of bulbs drawing current on the one wire

Were do you hook up the two wires under the hood for trailer brakes on a 2000 silverado


Sometime around 2000, GM started putting trailering pre-wire harnesses in the vehicle. Your truck may have this harness built in and would greatly simplify brake controller installation. Look under the glovebox and see if there is a wire harness tied off. There will be four wires in this harness, which should be run over to the steering column to use it. Most trailer brake controllers are compatible with this harness.
The four wires in the harness are: Red, 12vdc; black, ground; blue or purple, brake pedal; and brown or white, trailer brake wire to seven pin, four pin, or five pin connector at trailer hitch, if your truck came from the factory with a trailer hitch.
If you are adding the hitch and do not have the four wire harness, the under hood wires from your brake controller are Red, connect to one of the studs under the distribution box cover (the distribution box is on the driver's side against the firewall. Underneath the cover are two large threaded studs which are hot from the battery all the time); and the other wire from your brake controller would have to be run the length of the truck along the frame, tied off in several places, to the trailer hitch connector on the bumper. Follow the directions that came with trailer hitch wiring connector to connect this wire to the proper pin in the connector.
If this has helped you, great, and please remember to vote/comment.
Good luck!

Hooking up trailer lights


Are you checking your lighting with the trailer hooked up? This is the trailer's ground source. The white wire on both sides of the plug is the ground wire. Grounds are very important, Make sure they good and clean.
