Good product, but....
Wiring kit installed easy enough, the hardest part was stringing the hot wire to the battery. I didn't have my trailer available to test the operation of the harness so I used my meter. It shows hot on all 3 plug connections. I didn't think that was right so I double checked all my work. When I checked on the web I found out that with this system that is how it is designed. Somewhere in the instructions it should be noted for us types that tend to overthink things. I then went and purchased an LED test light. The light showed no activity when connected to the 4 plug, when I stared the engine the test light had a light glow at all connections. I then activated the lights, brakes, and signals ant it all worked as it should. I think it should also be noted that this is NOT the wiring kit to use when the trailer has LED lights, when I use this trailer with this car my trailer lights will always be glowing. If they worked like normal lights I would have given this an above average or higher rating.
