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.
Ordered on 2/14 ..... 2011 F-350 6.7 ccsb FX4 lariat vermillion red with black interior 3.55 elockers with 20'' wheels. The wait is killing me slowly! Ordered 2/14 Picked up 4/8 B&W, 2.5 leveling kit, luverne side entry steps, and luverne molded splash gaurds, and lots of CHROME!
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.
