    You can buy a plugin cord that plugs into the back of your 7 wire plug and the other end mounts in the bed. All the mfgs like valley and drawtite have them

    Check with your dealer, they should have it or be able to get it. I think retail is about $68. Jon

    Just as Jon suggested, I went to eTrailer.com and got the Valley 10' harness to mount up in the box. If you have a hole saw you can do it yourself. The harness ties into the existing 7-way receptacle: just plug-n-play.

    Jon,

    Did you take that as a "zinger"? I sure didn't mean it to be. I think a certain moderator's trying to stir up some trouble!!
