I installed this on a 2014 Ford Focus auto trans hatchback and instead of running the power wire outside and under the vehicle I ran it under the trim on the drivers side and where I believe the clutch peddle and clutch master cylinder would go there is a cut out in the insulation (just to the left and up from the brake peddle) take out the chunk of insulation and there is a plastic rectangle that you can pop out and drill for the wire to fit through, from there it is an awkward but totally doable snake through the engine bay to the + post of the battery. Works great.
not happy about having to run a wire from the converter box back by the tail lights all the way to the battery. I could not find a way through the firewall by the passenger or driver seat. I was not willing to hang the wire below the car and bring it up to the battery that way. The way the company should have had and the instructions was to have a small spade connector and then insert it in the little fuse box back on the left side of the cargo compartment. I ground/filed about 50% of the with from a male spade connector. The box can get its 12 volts from that fuse box no problem. The other problem I had was one of the pins in the T connector had a substantial hanging Chad kind of a burr on it and I had to file it off with Jewelers file. It would have destroyed the socket on my cars electrical connector if I didnt catch it.
This is solidly build product, well made. Assembly has adequate and easy to follow instructions. Unfortunately connectors on the 2015 Focus Electric hatchback is smaller that connectors on this assembly. Returning it now and looking for other products or solution. I am actually not planning to pull a trailer, instead I am using the hitch for a bicycle mount, and when bicycle mount is off, this assembly were intended to run a fancy hitch brake light. Otherwise it looks like my car has a tailpipe - when it is does not.
