You can get the trailer tow adapter ( with instructions ) from Ford.

The part number I have from the 2005 directions is 5L3Z-13A576-CA.

When I checked this at Tasca ( ) it lists the part as Frame Tow hook and hitch Cable assy Cable assy, so a call to them ( or your local dealer ) should be made prior to ordering to confirm it is the correct Part Number.

MSRP : 55.45
Online price ( Tasca ) : 36.60

The directions are pretty details, and you will have to drop the spare tire to get to it. Aside from that, it is unplugging and plugging in a connector, and bolting the trailer tow adapter bracket in.

Go to the auto parts store ... they have or can order for you, a special plug that you insert into your existing wiring harness that will probably include the standard trailer plug. There is an outlet at the back of your truck for this add on.

Thanks for your interest in ... please remember to evaluate my response. Thanks

Have 2008 nissan frontier when hooking to camper brakes and turn dont work checked back same/ is there fuse in front

There are a number of different methods of wiring a vehicle for towing depending on what is required.

Your vehicle probably uses a CAN-bus system and great care must be used when wiring for towing unless a genuine Nissan wiring harness is used. What fuses used and where they might be is something I am unable to comment about.

Wiring for towing and the wiring and lighting of trailers, campers, caravans are notoriously unreliable and short-lived unless completed to a very high standard and superior materials are used. When there is a fault it could be caused by either and it is important to suspect both and test both independently.

The first step should be to eliminate the camper, trailer or caravan as a possible cause by either plugging it in to another vehicle or using a substitution or testing box or device.
I have such a box that is invaluable to people who tow. It allows me to test the vehicle wiring and the trailer wiring.

Alternatively you could try plugging a known good trailer onto your vehicle for test purposes. It it is decided the vehicle is at fault it usually pays to examine the inside of the socket first to check for corrosion. I recently encountered a socket that was full of water and so badly corroded a couple of feet of the wiring had to be replaced. - and it had happened in only a year...

Tow plug

you have one of two things going on first check to see if the brake light on the left side is shorted out, it will be a 1157 bulb replace it and see if it works looking good does not mean it's good if it has a single contact then it's a 1156 bulb, check to make sure where the bulb socket is that the rubber inside the socket is not worn out and the bulb is shorting to ground. if it is buy a 1157 pig tail repair kit at any Nappa auto truck store or any trailer store. replace it if it needs it. Next if that does not fix it pull the left wheel off pull the drum off and look at the wires on the inside, if they are bare inside it's shorting out if you don't see a bare wire look at the color of the two wires and with a ohm meter and one wire disconnected from that side touch them at the plug and to ground one at a time you should have one wire going to ground one not if both wires going to the left side show they are shorted then you need to replace the wire or the electric coil. if you need more help just ask. If I can e-mail you I can send you a diagram and show you how to test if yo don't know. good luck.
