When it comes to adventure, your memories don’t start when you get to your destination, they start when you begin your journey. With the Curt trailer wiring taillight converter, you can ensure that your vehicle is able to tow. Similar to the plug-and-play design of other Curt trailer wiring kits, the Curt electrical converter provides a trailer connector for your vehicle by slicing into the vehicle’s electrical system. Electrical converters are designed to splice directly into the taillight wiring, rather than plugging into sockets.


This custom wiring harness features a vehicle-specific design to perfectly fit making different vehicles. This trailer wiring kit also comes with a powered converter and all the necessary wiring components for a complete installation. The converter is controlled using a microcontroller that is able to sense the current passing through it, allowing for quick reaction to conditions on the road.

  • Converts 3-wire vehicle electrical systems to standard 2-wire trailer wiring
