Have you ever followed someone pulling a trailer who didn’t have their lights working properly? It is not a good experience. In fact, it’s a dangerous one. Not only do non-functioning lights pose a danger for the those pulling a trailer, it is dangerous for everyone on the road with them.
A Few Things to Know About Wiring
Pre-wiring. Most vehicles, especially those meant for towing, come pre-wired for light. In our experience, however many are only partially pre-wired for towing. This means you will need to purchase a wiring kit to complete the task of properly wiring your vehicle to tow.
Every Vehicle is Different. Have you ever looked at all the types of tires that are available on the market? It seems like every manufacturer has to do something different to make theirs unique. The same is true with wiring. Almost every car, truck or sport utility vehicle is wired just a little differently and require a different wiring kit.
No Easy Button. Wiring has become a lot more complicated and in some cases takes longer than the hitch installation. The type of wiring required depends on what you will be towing.
The Wire Harness, also known as a cable harness is an organized set of wires, terminals and connectors that run throughout the entire vehicle and relay information and electric power. It plays a critical role in “connecting” a variety of components.
The two most common types of wiring harnesses are the 4 prong and the 7 prong for RV towing.
