2011 FORD FIFTH WHEEL TRAILER CONNECTION

Hey Guys, I bought a 2011 F350 but it did not have the fifth wheel prep package. So I am installing a B&W kit. I also bought the factory in bed trailer connection from ford. It has the receptical and about 36" of wiring harness with two plugs on the end. It is not a "T" connector. And I do not see two spare "taps" on the underside anywhere. Has anyone done this? I would rather not cut the plugs off and splice in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am planning on doing the same as soon as my truck gets in, I figured it would be a plug and play kinda deal with the factory connections.

If it's like the Reese one I used one is male and the other female and it connected to the back side of the bumper plug.

I also have the B&W hitch, and bought the Ford factory bed plug. You'll be surprised at the shape hole it requires from the factory! NO Holesaw shaped like that,,, I plan on cutting the tabs off the plug, just drilling three holes, one for the recessed part, and two for the mounting point. It will plug straight into the factory harness, at least that's what the parts guy said. (I do NOT have 36" of wire with mine. At most it goes 18-24" or so out from the plug itself.
I hope to install mine tomorrow if I have time.

So does it plug in to the back of the plug? Pics? Thinking about doing this if it is really that easy.
