My trailer wiring connector has a 5 inline wire connector. 4 female and 1 male. The 5th wire is supposed to go to the vehicles back up lights to keep the surge brakes on the trailer from engaging when backing up.

My F150 and Explorer both came with a 4 wire connector. I had to splice a wire into my back up lights and manually connect it to handle the surge brakes.

Has anyone seen a 5 wire connector for the F150/Explorer? My Ford dealer has been no help.

If you can't find one, you can disengage the surge brakes when backing up by turning the cap on the tongue.

2001 Nitro's have this feature, yours should too.
