Today we're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins 7 way rv to 4 way flat trailer connector adapter with the LED test lights. This adapter's going to convert your 7 fold blade style vehicle end connector for use with a 4 way flat connector on your trailer. Located right here are going to be the three built-in LED lights that are going to provide easy troubleshooting. These are going to light up to verify that the connector's receiving power from your tow vehicle, and the light's are going to be labeled. That way you can identify quickly the function of each one. 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 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

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
