Hi all,

Do the Arctic Fox truck campers come with a pigtail/harness of any type to connect to the truck? Or is this all aftermarket wiring depending on your truck wiring arrangement?

Thanks, Jeff

Every newer truck camper except the Lance comes with a 7 way plug. Lance comes with a 6 way.

You might have to make an adjustment if it was preowned because someone might have matched a mistake of their truck install. The most common place to add the plug is midway between the front of the bed and wheel well on the driver side.

There are also after market cords that will reach to the bumper if that is what you prefer.

I might add that most vehicles have a way to hook a T-connector in so you don't need to cut or splice into the wiring. Makes life easy!

Yes Arctic Fox comes with the wiring from the truck to the camper as the camper end is square and made for AF only it is NOT a typical seven pin connector as mentioned in previous post.

Do you mean it is square at the camper side or truck side? I was talking about the end that connects to truck.

Well, since all campers plug into the truck for lights, the answer is generally yee unless you're buying used and the previous owner lost it.

Arctic Fox doesn't come with a 7 way plug, it's a 6 way.

It's a pigtail with bare wires on one end and the plug that mates to the camper receptacle on the other end.

It's rectangle at the camper end.

I added a heavy duty charge circuit for battery charging on my AF.

Upgraded charging cables
