Extension Harnesses

Hitting the road and traveling with a 5th wheel trailer is always a great experience. However, being able to bring the comforts of home wherever you go is a luxury that comes with some requirements. The same goes for the power of towing a heavy-duty gooseneck trailer. Both must be equipped with the proper electrical and lighting systems. Both 5th wheel and gooseneck trailers often require a more complex connection than that of a standard receiver hitch trailer.

An extension harness is designed to add an additional connector socket into the bed of your pickup truck while still maintaining power to the rear connector socket. By plugging into the back of an existing connector, an extension harness runs through the body of a truck to a hole in the bed providing a connection for a 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer. This makes switching between a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch and a receiver hitch much easier.

Southside Hitch offers extension harnesses made by Wesbar. They feature color-coded cables that are sealed to stay protected from outdoor elements. The extension harnesses also have a jacketed cable, four feet of stripped wire leads and a 4-way flat wiring connector. Our expert technicians can install extension harnesses for any make or model of tow vehicle. From simple plug-and-play to more complex systems, we will make sure you have the proper connections ready to power whatever type of trailer you tow.
