Need help with replacing wiring for tow hitch connection

We have a 2014 Georgetown 328TS. Unfortunately, bottomed out coming out of a gas station where the ground was a bit unlevel and the receiver hitch on the back of the MH survived, but the connector (is it 7 pin?) is smashed and the bracket mount that had it attached to the receiver is damaged as well.

The part on the hitch is a Pollack brand and I have that part on order but the connector pin is smashed too and I have to replace the wiring and just can't seem to get parts info on that. I think it's a 7 way wiring harness to a 4 way wiring harness.

Currently not using the hitch, but would like to get it fixed so it can look nice again.

I know I probably shouldn't try to fix it myself, but it seemed like an easy fix....lol!!

Thanks.

You know I did the same thing. On the way home from the dealer. I don't feel so bad. I think I am going to get a new socket and mount it on top of the hitch. That connector is the lowest point on the coach. We haven't camped in it except in the driveway. Curious how you like it gas mileage etc. I will let you know how I fixed it. After tomorrow's snow!!!!! I sick of all this.

I got my 328 used with 5k miles on it about 1 1/2 half months ago. Spent 3 nights at a close by park a couple weeks ago. So far so good. Ready for another trip hopefully soon.

Frankly our gas mileage sucks. I've taken a poll here and everyone else seems to be getting 7 mpg. We usually get around 6 mpg. We do tend to keep our speed around 65-70 mph and we don't have a toad and we don't keep full tanks and cargo is fairly normal I would think. What are you getting?

This is how it looks. I've got the Pollack part on order but it looks like the wiring is the headache. Can't figure out the brand but I'm thinking it's not Pollack but a different wiring harness. Looks like a bit of a pain but really don't want to spend the time or money taking it back to the dealer to fix it.

For the most part it's a great rig. We're newbies to the motorhome so we don't have lots of experience. Just a few things we've learned about the 328TS...

1. Electric water heater switch is outside
2. Manual leveling is better than auto (our auto level was not calibrated correctly and it would put the rig at unsafe heights)
3. Awning can't be slanted permanently and retracted....our travel trailer allowed that.

Depends....we are newbies with previous experience with a 24' travel trailer.

Love the 328TS despite our newbie issues.
