    So I broke my trailer plug on my truck a few months back, and yesterday i went into my local friendly dealer to get a another one. First the guy needed my VIN in order to be able to find the part, HUH??? :crazy: Then I am told that you have to buy the whole wire harness that includes the plug in the back, and by the way that'll be $234. UH NO, I will screw my self before buy that. So does the plug come apart and can I buy it separate for low dollars?

    crazy dealer!

    Hey, I actually posted a thread on this. Go to a Honda parts store on line and look under the Ridgeline... Same plug but also includes a 4 pin... just need a little saudering skill to get that one to work. about half the price

    Just go get a 7 pin from and auto store and wire it up... Pretty universal!
    I would get one like Below ($29.95) Cut the wires and then just wire it into your truck!

    Wow! $234 for the 7 pin! The wiring harness for the 4 pin is only $40. I'm glad my boat is the 4 pin.

    I'm in Cleves, about 5 minutes off of I-74. I pass through Amelia a few times to go to the Starlite Drive in. Easy way to see the movie with the kids.

    I just finished relocating my trailer harness to the bumper by the license plate. I saw the mod, before I ripped mine off, but I didn't do it soon enough. Therefore, I couldn't use the factory one. I wasn't going to get robbed at the dealership, so I scouted around until I found a nice one with a seal on the door. The colors of the wires were different, so I crossed them over. It came out nice, and I won't tear it off any more.
