Did a "Boy Howdy" today pulled the harness out of the hitch pin box recepticle

Well I guess after all my years of towing,it was bound to happen,discounted from the trailer and the hitch box pig tail got caught in between the bed and the tail gate,and rip right out of the pinbox receptitcle.So I have 8 wires,and many wires that are coming out of the trailer,some twist together to align into one coming out of the box.Any suggestions on how to rewire this back,also the breakaway pulled loose as well.

I am following you on that,a bergman 7 pin.But my problem is the wires coming from the trailer do not match up in color to the 7 colors on the harness coming out of the hitch pin box recepitcle.Plus the emergency brake control also is different in color as well.So not sure which wire it ties into.

Yeah, they don't follow the conventional wire colors once it leaves the umbilical. You'll either have to ring them out with a multimeter or have someone with the same model and year look and see what the colors are.

You could post a picture of the wires in the box and maybe it would match someone else's color scheme.

First, find which one is the ground, in pig tail and trailer. Then make you a jumper wire with a couple small alligator clips and, leaving the ground alone, turn on tv park lights, find that wire on tv, then using jumper, connect to trailer wires, one at a time, till clearance lights come on......then, one by one, do the same thing....

I just did the same think with my new 377FLIK. Boy did I feel stupid.
The following might help:

Truck Trailer
Pin 1 - Red, Left turn/Brake Red
Pin 2 - White, Ground White
Pin 3 - Blue, Electric Brakes Blue(light)
Pin 4 - Green, Running Lights Green
Pin 5 - Black, 12 VDC Return Black
Pin 6 - Brown, Right Turn/Brake Blue(dark)
Pin 7 - Yellow, Reverse Does not have reverse lights

Breakaway two wires (Black and Orange). Hool one wire to the Black Wire and the other to Blue for the Electric Brakes.

I used heat shrink and solder to make good water tight connections.

I pull the 377FLIK with a Ford F250 Turbo Diesel 4X4 Platinum. I may not be an exact match but it will get you started.

Good Luck!

It really wouldn't be any fun if it was always easy. Great job. Buy yourself a beer.
