Ok this is the break down of the 7 pin trailer tow wiring at the connector
A white with red tracer (back up lamps)
B black with gray tracer (ground)
C dark green (electric brake feed)
D white with dark green tracer (turn signal control right side)
E red with violet tracer (battery feed)
F brown (park lamps also known as running lamps)
G white with orange tracer (turn signal control left side)
forgot to ask for Gauge of those wires as I will buy a splice connector. The answer was exactly what I needed! Thank you!
Battery feed and ground are 12 gauge
turn signals and back up lamps are 18 gauge
parking lamps and electric brake feed are 14 gauge
sorry last one I promise! would any of the 7 be "on" only with the key turned to ACC or car started? If no, where is the easiest place in rear or 2012 Ram 1500 to pull power to rear camera I am installing? Just realized that it will always be "on" of I use pin/wires B and E on the trailer connector.
Looking for a rear location and wire color with a 12 Volt switched on by the ignition.
thanks! I bought a 7 inch wireless monitor to camera as I will have it on 100% while driving as I cannot see out the back window (kids, load, etc.).
I was going to have it toggle with reverse , but will use it 100% of time to see what is behind me. Maybe if not easy, it wont draw too much ? I have the Monitor in the cab on the ignition via the keyed cig lighter, so that is good to go. now for the camera. Thanks for the help
good stuff. Thank you!!
