Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500

Travel Trailer wiring, lights and electronic brake control

I need a simple schematic to wire my truck to a travel trailer. I have a 2003 23' Frontier Travel Trailer that needs to be wired to a 1996 Chevy 1500 series extended cab. The electronic brake control is the problem (Reese Towpower Pod #74377), because if it is wired wrong and power is applied, it will be damaged. I can wire the lights the old fashioned way, but this new type of electronic brake control is beyond me.

Try looking at this link. If it makes sense, great. If not, we'll try to get the actual 74377 manual.

How do I prepare my Chevy Tahoe to pulll a travel trailer


Tow package Reece hitch with the right size ball, electric brakes with trailer wiring. Sway bar\'s stops trailer from swaying back & forth. The most important is to find out the tongue weight on trailer. If it\'s more than your Tahoe can handle you will need to put air bag\'s on your rear suspension to help support the weight. You will also need to check the tire load rating on your Tahoe\'s rear tires. You don\'t want a blow out going down the road! Goose neck trailer won\'t work period! Good luck!

All trailer lights work on my travel trailer except there are no brake lights to trailer. The issue I can see is there is no power to the brakes at the 3:00 o'clock and 9:00 o'clock pins on my 2004 g


there will be only 1 power wire for the brake lights as they are connected .together. What you are looking at are the indicator lights (1 left wire and 1 right wire)

How should I prepare my durango to pull a 24 foot travel trailer...what class of hitch, do I need in-board electric trailer brake controls, etc.?


Hi Frank,
I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.

2002 silverado 1500 wiring diagram where can i get a copy? i need to wire it for a trailer.


Look in your glove box and see if you have the PRO code U89: wiring harness, car trailer
It's common to have the trailer harness already installed in your Silverado without you know and the dealer can pull it out for you from where it's tucked up in the frame passenger side by the spare tire for the simple cost or $65.00.
