Which trailer wiring harness/adapter do you have...

...and do you have issues with it? Place your vote!

I had a Hoppy brand on my truck when I bough it. Poor power transmission, and no brake lights. Recently swapped it out for a Curt unit, everything blinks and/or lights up with brakes and turn signals...nothing happens with the headlights.

That leaves 2 options that I know of, the draw-tite/reese brand one and Nissan. Local dealer says the factory ones aren't available anymore, they're trying to find one from another dealer somewhere in the states.

Any advice?

went to walmart and got a five wire plug. wired that up and had no problems aside from corrosion and lack of use.

everything worked. used for towing trailers with surge brake.

I have the Nissan wiring harness. Other than being a PITA to install it's the best way to go. No chance of blowing fuses.

Hopefully I'll have a voicemail from the parts desk at Nissan on Monday saying they found a Nissan harness then. If not, I think I'll be stuck with getting creative on my own or trying aftermarket ones until I find one that works.

Nissan did find me a harness...at $180! I had already ordered the Hoppy brand t-style connector to try out though. Wired that in tonight and it works pretty good. Definitely not as bright as my wife's Envoy makes them light up, but sufficient for the price. Even if I do have to replace one a year, it'd take me a while to get to $180 at $30 a pop.

I installed the Hoppy on mine and it works nicely. I'm not pulling many amps with my LED trailer lights though...

Paid about $70 for my harness at a local dealer. They matched courtesyparts.com's price.
