Mass law on gooseneck trailer wiring.

Recommended Posts

Simple question..

Is my trailer wiring allowed to go from gooseneck to factory installed bumper 7pin connector.  Wiring harness will go over tailgate.

Or am I required to install a secondary outlet in the bed of the truck.

Rumor has it MASS DOT will pull you over if its run over tailgate.

They make a "Y" connector you can tap into the 7pin and then mount one in your bed for cheap money.

 

But no its not illegal to run it off the regular 7pin

Not sure if illegal or not, but last two trucks I’ve owned had connections in the bed and I think it’s a better location.

My 5th wheel hitch is in the bed. Never been an issue since 2002. 

That is until I crushed the plug with a bunch of junk. Replaced and keep using it that way
