2015 GC Altitude - tow hitch and trailer wiring

Help -

I am new to the group and I have been searching the forum for trailer wiring harness.

I have a brand new 2015 Grand Cherokee Altitude and I am looking to put a tow hitch and trailer wiring on it.

I have found the tow hitch - Amazon.com: Reese Towpower 51195 Pro Series Class III Square Tube Receiver Hitch: Automotive

Now I am looking for the trailer wiring and I am hearing that the 2014 and 2015 have different wiring than previous years.

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to look for the wiring harness? I spoke with Quadratec - they didn't have the harness.

Thanks
Adam

Have you looked under where the hitch goes? If i'm not mistaken all 14's and 15's come pre-wired from the factory. I too don't have a hitch but i do have the wiring underneath. You just need to have dealer flash it so they can activate it.

someone with more knowledge will chime in soon.

Oh and i'm going with the draw tite #75699 cause that one has the the space for the 7 & 4 plug/harness.

I looked up the hitch your using... I like it, but it doesn't appear to be for 2015 models. What year you Installing it on?

I will get under my Altitude tomorrow and look at the wiring. I hope your right.

I have seen other threads about this and recall that the Mopar kit requires the supplied wiring harness to be run to the back of the fuse box. It is not pre-wired to the back. The flash is required to activate power to the fuses and to integrate the trailer load to the braking control systems.

Re: 2015 GC Altitude - tow hitch and trailer wiring

Just went into my dealer's site (about $500 to get the OEM from them minus the load lvl shocks) and here is the info regarding the hitch:

Part Number: 82212180AC
Brand: Mopar
Class IV Trailer Hitch w/ Bezel
Additional Information
Class IV Trailer Hitch-OE Hitch in Kit includes bezel. Designed as a one-piece welded assembly for added strength over multiple piece designs, Mopar Hitch Receivers match your vehicle`s towing capacity. Covered with two-layered, E-coated paint finish to resist rust. All Mopar hitches pass Chrysler`s extensive road testing for durability and strength.

Note: SRT8 models also require 68157472AA trim bezel order separately.

Grand Cherokee vehicles come equipped with wiring harness from production (additional wiring harness not needed). However, order snap-in 7/4-way connector 56055632AC. Once installed, dealer must use their scan tool to add hitch sales code to activate trailer wiring
