Thanks for the reply. I went back to Uhaul and they insist it's the van's wiring system from the factory. I'm going to go to another Uhaul dealer and have someone else take a look at it. The link you sent me was for a 2007 Nissan. I don't know how much of a diffence that would make. I have been told from the dealer that they had problems with the 2008 quest wiring systems but he didn't know the details. If I figure this out I'll let anyone interested know what happens and how to fix it. If not I'm getting rid of the problem all together.

I would give DrawTite a call or e-mail and ask about the 2008 Quest. My guess is they may have a wiring harness for 2008.
#7 of 14 01 Factory Tow Hitch Factory Plug Adapter
Mar 10, 2013 (5:36 am)
My 01 Quest came with the factory tow package and has some different looking square plug that is really different then the flat 4 that most trailers use. Does anyone know where i can get the adapter for it and or a part number? I do not want to cut this up as i want to keep it clean the way it was built. Please let me know. Thank You
#9 of 14 Nissan Quest 2011 Tow Package?
Aug 10, 2011 (6:14 pm)
I have been trying to find an answer to how low the Nissan Quest 2011 tow package rides but local car salesman can't answer it since they haven't seen a tow package and are unwilling to call corporate.
I have an old Honda Odyssey with an after market tow package and I am wondering if the Nissan will be higher. We scrape sometimes with a bike rack attached and this would be a nice point in the Nissan's favor as we are looking at replacing the Honda.
Does anyone have the factory tow package? If so, could you please measure the bottom of the hitch off the ground?

Here's the best picture I could find:
it looks like it cuts into the bottom of the bumper. I do know the aftermarket hitch sits lower, just under the bumper. Another owner on a another Quest forum mentioned the aftermarket hitch does scrape the ground when going into driveways and the like.
#12 of 14 Re: Adding a trailer hitch to a 2011 Quest?

I'm afraid I don't know about the dealer hitch as I couldn't find a Quest with one on it! Talk about low availability!
So I'm now trying to add a (non-dealer) trailer hitch to my Quest, and can't find anyone local who knows them.
If anyone has added a trailer hitch (dealer or not) to your 2011 Quest, please chime-in and tell us the specifics and how well it worked. Thanks!

Hitch installed at Dealership requires bumper removal and cutout. I believe it took 2 techs at least 2 hours. They also had not installed one before. Had it included in van purchase price. It has 9 inches of ground clearance with no loads. I use a 5 to 6" offset receiver to get trailer tongue up off ground. Hope this helps.
