Optronics 7 Pole to 5 Pole Flat Adapter Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Optronics Molded 7 Pole Round to 5 Pole Flat adapter. This one piece adapter's made of an ABS plastic and what this is going to allow us to do is plug into a standard 7 pole in the back of the vehicle, and then haul what's typically a marine application trailer. A trailer that has surge breaks, we want the reverse circuit, so when we hit reverse in the vehicle, it deactivates those brakes so as we're trying to back up it doesn't lock up and pull us. If you've been experiencing that, this can be a great solution to cure that problem. You'll see it's going to have a keeper on it. That's going to point up, or down, just depending on how your 7 pull is set up. Once the door comes down, it's going to hold it in place. more

Connecting the two units is going to be our wiring. The wiring's going to have a nice protected casing that goes over it. That's a braided cable covering that's to provide a larger range of motion for a more convenient hook up. more

Hopkins Wiring HM48502 Review- Video

Hopkins Wiring HM48502 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins 7-way RV style trailer connector with night glow. The 7-way RV style trailer end connector is going to plug into the 7-way on your vehicle. It's going to feature night glow technology, so that function is going to illuminate the plug when the taillights on the tow vehicle are activated. There's a single LED located in the plug that will turn on. That's going to offer easy troubleshooting even in the dark or low light conditions and it's going to enable you to find your electrical connection in the dark as well. It's got the nice large finger tabs on it, so it's got the easy to grip design that's going to allow for a simple plug-in and disconnect. The unit is made from a strong and durable plastic construction that's impact resistant. more

Hopkins Trailer Wiring Adapter Review- Video

Hopkins Trailer Wiring Adapter Review

Today we're going to review the adapter 7 pole to 6 pole and 4 pole recover, part number 47565 from Hopkins. All right, this is our adapter. This is designed to plug into a 7 pole connector, standard with the flat pins. Now you notice there's one, two, three, four, five, six metal pins and nothing in the center. On the other side of course, it's going to be a 6 pole connector. Your wire harness on your vehicle, the 7 pole, is probably going to have this as a reverse site lead so when you use this on another trailer with a 6 pole, that will not work on this side, something to consider. more

Wesbar 4 Pole Flat Connector with Jacketed Cable Review- Video

Wesbar 4 Pole Flat Connector with Jacketed Cable Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at, and installing, the Wesbar 4 pole flat trailer connector, with jacket and cable, part number W787270. We'll take our new 4 pole flat trailer connector, and we'll just measure it out to where we have a little bit of slack, so we can plug it in on top, and measure it back, since we are going to have 10' and we won't quite need it all. That way, we can make sure we have just enough. Run that down and through that grommet. We'll then cut off the excess of our old wires that we don't need, and then we'll measure out our new ones, and cut off those as well. We'll make it to where we can put it up on the back side, here, where it's going to be out of the elements. Go ahead and take a razor blade, and we're going to cut back this jacketed sleeve, to expose our wires. more

This will accommodate seven circuits. If we look on top of the lid here, it has a seal that helps protect the contacts when it's not being used. One neat thing also about the look compared to the OEM one, you notice I can run this all the way up and almost 180 degrees. more

Hopkins Endurance 7 Way Trailer Connector Socket Review- Video

Hopkins Endurance 7 Way Trailer Connector Socket Review

Today in our motor home we're going to be taking a look at and changing the connector. We're going to be using the Hopkins endurance connector, part number HM48480. As you can see its got a rather substantial pivot point at the top. It's going to make it real strong and it's going to last a long time. We're going to start with our power wire and we're going to touch that to the auxiliary side of the wiring. It's going to loosen up, then we take our wire and slip it in between, then we'll tighten it back down. You want to pay attention not to have any stray wires sticking out that can come in contact with another connector. Now we'll do our tail lights, the brown wire, twist it, slip it into place. You want to be sure to test all your wiring to make sure they are the same colors as we're using here because some vehicles are wired differently. So it's best to take your test light and just test all the wires. Do our left turn, then we'll do our ground, then we'll do our right turn. Now there is a provision for a trailer brake which our vehicle does not have so once you have those attached. We're going to take some of the supplied Dielectric Grease and we're going to apply some to the inside here. more

Bargman Wiring 50-67-106 Review- Video

Bargman Wiring 50-67-106 Review

Today we are going to betaking a look at the bargemen seven layered molded connector. It is going to measure 18 feet long. The pre wired seven layered trailer end sealed connector is going to give you plenty of length to run your wiring where you need to, for your trailer. It is made with self cleaning contacts and it is molded, so it's really a great job that encapsulating the terminals and the wires, to form one weather resistant, non corrosive assembly. The plug has the finger tabs for easy disconnecting and it is going to have the raised area right here that slides in the connector on your vehicle to make sure the plug is inserted correctly. The cable is insulated. You can see that nice casing right there, around the wires. That is going to add plenty of protection to the wires, but it still gives you the flexibility it needs. more

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford Ranger- Video

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford Ranger

Here on this 2008 Ford Ranger, we'll go ahead and review and install part number 18252, the Draw Tite 4-Pole Hardwire Kit with a circuit tester. This is what it looks like when it's installed on our Ranger truck. This wire harness will allow you to replace the 4-Pole connector that's pre-existing on this truck like we did here, or you can use this on a vehicle that does not have a 4-pole wire harness at all. One of the best reasons to have this installed on your truck is is that it replaces something that's already corroded up, or in this case here, the 4-pole wire harness is actually from the factory, located behind and underneath and a little bit hard to get to. You can use this to extend it and pull it out and make it a little easier to work with and hook up to your trailer. Our part number includes the wire harness here, of course. It also comes with the quick splice connectors and a circuit tester to help identify the functions of the wires. We'll cover those next in our install. First off, this is our 4-pole flat wire harness right here, entire length of the wire is going to be 72 inches. These are our quick splice connectors. more
