I have a similar question about hitch and sway bars. What would you all recommend for us, with the Tundra pulling a 1976 Safari?
Judy - Being new to this I don't know that I can help you much with your question, but the owner of the '76 we're looking to buy said we need a 7-pin connection, and that's what comes with the Tundra tow package. The tow package supposedly has a converter for 4-pin if that's what you need.
Our 2002 Tundra did NOT come with a 7 pin, but the brake control is PART of that 7 pin. Unless yours came w/ brake control you should add it.
The center pin is the one that charges the battery.
Then you have one for each turn signal, and brake, and running lights.
And one of th epins is for brake control.
One thing of importance.. look in your TRAILER owner's manual for the DIAGRAM of how to hook up!
If you don't have the owner's manual, there are several scanned into this site.
Or contact someone who has the same trailer unit, and also the manual. They woudl help. We ALL help each other.
