A post with dimensions of the location that I used for locating mine.

|cjohnsonseed||Quick question, does anyone have the factory gooseneck plug in location in the bed. I am adding the in bed plug and have an idea where I want it but would like to use OEM location. I have googled for pics but couldn't find any. Thanks|

|big_blue||mine has given me trouble a couple of times. it's aftermarket. first time it wouldn't work and i realized it had come unplugged so reached up and plugged it in, then everything was screwy for a while and realized that the pigtail was clocked wrong at that same in-bed plug at the rear. you would think that you couldn't plug it in except for correctly, but i found a different way! every since then all has been well.|

The narrow frame (no bed fleet/commercial/ambulance/etc) trucks did not have the two connectors by the driver's side rear wheel/tire.

|Jesus_man||Yeah, I think that is what he used, as it was a plug-n-play operation. However, that is an assumption on my part as I don't actually know that. But from the conversation I had, it T's off that connection.|

|HeavyAssault||Isn't there any aftermarket harness that uses the OEM connections found on the underside of the receiver hitch?|

|jimmy||He needs to very carefully inspect for any of the wires having touched inside taped or covered harness with the top side plug not connected. Then try again once that plug is in place. The issue may be in the top side plug. The computer knows only continuity to a trailer or a short in the wires. There is no recognition of wiring to be done or detected. I have installed several of those Curt harnesses and had no issues. I have had the end plug where trailer plug inserts have bent pins. He needs to look in the back of that new plug to see if there is anything wrong there. If he used a plug up top where he cut and stripped and then set screw secured wires into a plug the same thing goes as far as the end plug having issues that can make the lighting and electric brake circuit monitoring go nuts.|

Trailer wiring extension into bed acting funny!
I apologize now as this is second hand information on my BIL's truck, a 2016 6.7l.
He has just installed a trailer wiring extension into the bed of his truck. From what I understand, he's pulled the connector off behind the bumper, put in this new extension, and plugged it back into the factory bumper connector. Then ran the new wiring to the bed to use with his gooseneck.
So, from what I gather, if you plug the trailer directly into the new wiring location, nothing works and there are faults on the instrument cluster. However, if you plug it into the bumper location, the faults go away and everything works. If you again, move the plug to the bed location everything STILL works for a while.
I am not sure what causes the bed plug to stop working (turn truck off or unplug trailer??) and I can get that information, but it sounds like it happens often enough that he can't just keep moving the plug to get it all to work.
He's tested all the wiring with a meter to make sure all the wires or connected properly between the factory and the new extension. Seems like a computer issue of some sort not wanting to recognize the new location?? Any ideas? Thanks!
