Video Transcript for Blue Ox Coiled Electrical Cord Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox seven-wire to six-wire coiled electrical cord designed for use when towing vehicles behind your motor home. Part number is BX88206. Now this flexible coil kit's going to be the perfect solution for this kind of situation. We've got our vehicle behind our coach and we need to get signals and power through to our car. Now when comparing this to other flexi coils, I like that the coils that we have here are smaller in diameter than what you're typically going to see. They're not so large and they don't take up as much room.

You can see they lay down pretty nicely.Now this is a nice tight coiled cable. You don't have a lot of stretch to it if you don't want it. It is capable of stretching up to seven feet, so even with the longest combinations this is probably going to be a really good option for you.Now the importance of the coiled design is from the expansion and contraction that it's going to offer. As we make turns right and left, this cord is going to be pulled out slightly and pulled in slightly. With that coiled design we're not ever going to have to worry about it dragging on the road behind us causing damage.The quality of materials seems to be right in line with what we see with most of our other connectors.

The seven-pole at the RV side, the six-pole at our car side, they're right in line. Same quality, same construction. You can see our six-pole end here. It's act kind of like a seven-pole. It's got the keeper tab on it right there.

It's designed to fit in right behind that so you're not going to have to worry about that coming unplugged until you intend it to. Lift up on our cover, just wiggle it to separate there. You see our cover, it's got the nice stainless steel spring on, holds that door down in place really well. It's going to help to prevent the moisture, debris from getting inside there and causing corrosion. Really easy to connect.One thing we would recommend, just like on really any connector you have, little bit of dielectric grease on your plug and socket can go a long way for you in helping to additionally protect from corrosion.

If you don't have that at home, we sell it as part number 11755. Here the same thing with our seven-pole. You can see really nice, well constructed, and the tab designed to hold it in place.Now the reason you would want to use a six-pole on the front of your towed vehicle as opposed to maybe a four-pole would be the two additional inputs that we're going to have. Now these additional ports are going to allow for some wiring that's sometimes pretty important in flat tow setups. Often with braking systems you have a monitor light. Instead of running an additional wire, you can simply run it right through your six-pole, coming out of your seven-pole off the back of your RV. Another thing is the charge line kit. A lot of vehicles have the tendency for their batteries to drain as they're being flat towed. By using an additional wire through there from your 12-volt power outlet on the seven-pole, you can run that right into your battery and keep a trickle charge running to that so you don't have to worry about that rundown situation.Now there is one situation where I don't think a coiled wiring cable is the way to go. That's going to be if your tow bar has channels that are designed in it to accommodate your wiring and your safety cables. In that situation I would go with a straight cable so you can run it through that channel and it'll be kept contained that way rather than using the coiling effect. That's going to complete our look at the Blue Ox seven-wire to six-wire coiled electrical cord, part number BX88206.

This wiring harness is solid and well made. I have been in aviation maintenance in the military for more than twenty years. Everything will need to be tweaked, aligned or replaced eventually. The plugs at both ends can be opened and repaired or checked. They are not sealed or molded like some. That makes sense. If you can check it and fix it yourself, that is time and money not wasted. 498414

I never knew about etrailer until we need an emergency delivery of a tow wiring harness at a campground far from home, Order was simple and handled very well, although the email confirmation I was promised was never received. the item we needed was delivered in less than 24 hours and was exactly as the specified Blue Ox product. Very happy to have found etrailer.com and will certainly use them in the future. 569150

Excellent product and great quality. I have used this electrical cord several times over the past year while towing my 2015 Jeep Wrangler behind my Forest River FR3 motorhome without any issues or problems. The cord connects and disconnects with ease and so far there are no issues with any part of the cord. I will definitely purchase the same electrical cord again in the future if I need another one. 497803


Comments

After a full year of use the cord still performs as it did on day one. There have been no issues and the product still works perfectly. I would highly recommend the Blue Ox Coiled Electrical cord.

Cord to the Motorhome, good tight fit. Read the female plug with an ohm meter to determined running lights etc... All's good except the plastic socket fasting to the base plate. Cracked the mounting ears.. I didn't think I "over torque".. I thought I fastened "snug tight". Regardless, off to the auto part store for another one. :( 102437

Good umbilical cable to connect the coach to a towed car. The 7-blade connector is plastic but it appears to be durable. The 6-pin male connector (for the towed car/trailer end) that comes with the kit is also plastic. My cable will be out of the elements except when towing so hopefully it will last many years. As always, Etrailer was great - good customer service, quick ship and packed well. 246698

  • Can 6-Way on Towed Vehicle be Hardwired to 7-Way Connector on RV
  • The easiest way to connect your towed vehicle to the 7-Way on your RV will be to use a cord like the Blue Ox 7-Wire to 6-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord # BX88206. This will allow you to quickly connect your tow vehicle to your RV by using the included coiled cable that features a 6-Way on one end and a 7-Way on the other. If you would rather hardwire the 6-way wires from the towed vehicle cord to the 7-Way, you can certainly do this. You will just need to make sure that you make the proper...

The brake light relay # RM-88400 is not as critical because should the Jeep become separated whether or not the brake lights override the turn signals is moot at that point. But it should still be connected to the Jeep battery. To provide a maintenance charge to the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited...

First, you can tap into the running light circuit in the tow bar wiring but to provide power to the battery the RV running lights would have to be on all the time.
