ELECTRICAL AND WIRING

Tow vehicles must have the correct plug at the hitch and be connected to the correct tow vehicle circuits using acceptable practices in wire routing and connec- tions. Pace uses two different types of plugs. Trailers that are not equipped with brakes will have the 4-way flat plug like the wiring code pictured at right.

line for inside lights. The inside lights are wired to the #4 post. The auxiliary center post is used for backup lights or other special order/use wiring. It is important to ground the wiring prop- erly. The ground wire should run from the plug and attach to tow vehicle’s frame. Hitches, coupler/ball, safety chains THIS TRAILER IS EQUIPPED WITH 120 VOLT/60 HZ/AC (HOUSE CURRENT) ELECTRICAL POWER. UL APPROV- ED NON-METALLIC SHEATHED CABLE (IE.

Pace recommends that a separate fused line be run from the tow vehicle’s battery, through a 20 Amp in- line fuse, to an aftermarket toggle switch mounted on the dash. This switch should have a 20 Amp capacity. Wiring should be run from the switch to the #3 post for running lights. Newer vehicles’ wiring and headlight switches are many times marginal and do not have the capacity to carry the current required for larger trailers with lots of

running lights. If your tow vehicle has amber turn signals, see your hitch & wiring specialist for installation of a relay
