Trailer Coupling

Safe Trailer Operation

  • Follow the operating instructions for the trailer recommended by the trailer manufacturer.
  • Do not modify or repair the trailer coupling.
  • Before having new ADAPTER fitted, find out from your authorized Porsche dealer about the current authorization status.
  • Ensure that all trailer equipment conforms to the appropriate classification for total gross trailer weight and tongue weight.
  • Please see the chapter “WEIGHTS” on page 337.
  • Please see the chapter “LOADING INFORMATION” on page 245.

Retrofitting
Have a trailer coupling retrofitted only by an authorized Porsche dealer. The dealer is familiar with the manufacturer's specifications and any necessary conversion measures.

Electrical connection
For the electrical connection to the trailer, your Porsche has a 7-pin connector for the plug-in device, located behind the cover plate A.

Trailer Brake System Electrical Failure
Failure to keep an electrical adapter clean may result in corrosion and affect operation of electrical lines, resulting in possible trailer brake system failure.

  • Periodically inspect and clean adapter as needed.

Hitching trailer

  • Always turn off the alarm system before you attach a trailer.
  • Follow the operating instructions for the trailer recommended by the trailer manufacturer.
  • Please see the chapter “WEIGHTS” on page 337.

Unhitching trailer

  • Always turn the alarm system off before unhitching the trailer because otherwise the alarm will be triggered when the plug is removed.
  • If the trailer is equipped with an overrun brake, do not unhitch the trailer when its brake is still applied.

Information
The alarm function cannot be triggered when disconnecting the trailer plug if the trailer lights are all designed with light-emitting diodes technology.
