Need 7 pin tow harness info

2009 Ford E350 Extended body 5.4 I am building as a camper and to tow a travel trailer. It had a receiver hitch installed and a 4 way flat connection.

I need to install a 7 pin for brakes etc... I watched some youtube and cannot seem to locate a plug and play 7 pin.. what are y'all using?

I checked underneath the van and found the Ford factory tow wires that end near the rear axle on the frame.

Thanks in advance!!

Mike

The plug and play connector is only available from Ford. I went that route on my van. On my dad's van, I went with the e-trailer universal 7-way. Both work fine. The Ford plug and cover are more durable, but the universal one is cheap to replace when it breaks. And the connectors that come with the universal option are not waterproof.

Note: The F-series connectors are not the same as the E-series connectors.

Kinda funny how I was on here 6 months ago asking almost the same thing and I get nothing but crickets,,,,,,, Trailer place wants $450 dollars to do almost the same thing + add a electric brakes device.

Guess I didn't hold my mouth right.
