Electrical hookup for 5th wheel and gooseneck trailers

Valley has introduced a fifth wheel and gooseneck t-connector, in response to the markets growing demand for a convenient way to provide power to these types of trailers.

Designed to extend the existing OEM seven-way connection into the bed of a pickup truck to be used with a fifth wheel or gooseneck type hitch, the t-connector also leaves the original trailer wiring connector at the rear of the vehicle fully functional.

Valley's t-connector plugs directly between the tow vehicle harness and the factory sealed seven-way connector. The extra long 10-foot harness routes easily to the truck bed from beneath the vehicle.

The fifth wheel and gooseneck t-connector is available in two models to work with most current model Ford, Lincoln, Dodge, Chevrolet, GMC and Nissan trucks. Professional installation is required.
