Thanks to all who have helped out on my last questions.
I crawled up under (almost walked under ha ha) the ol truck the other night and noticed the wiring harness tucked up under by the spare tire. I do not have a reese hitch-its coming, I noticed on the wiring harness a round capped off plug looking very much like a trailer plug.
Does Chevy sell a plug that goes from the wiring harness over to the reese hitch? I will be having electric brakes.
So I actually need 2 harness' from the dealer?
1) for the brake controller to under dash
2) for wiring harness to hitch recepticle?

Thanks a bunch, the V.P.

If that is where your rear harness plugs into the harness that goes to the front then just about any part store has a plug that goes in there to run trailer wires to the trailer plug. Don't forget to put dielectric grease in it to keep the contacts from corroding.

I have bought wire harness's that plug into my break controller that will fit my truck ( the under-dash one ). for instance.. TSC sold the harness for my 1500 dodge, 1500 gmc, and an F250 from work..

My gmc yukon came with a trailer plug harness in the glove box, plus the large maxi-fuse that has to be installed under the hood ( 2000 model ).. etc..

One thinh.. the gmc 7pin adapeter may be different than a 7 pin small trailer adapter.. i know the ones hoppy sells have to be taken apart and have a wire swapped internally... No big deal.. just something to think about. If you hoo your break controller up and it says error. then yuor break power and master power wires are probably swapped.. etc..
