Video Transcript for Epicord Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 277-000141 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with the included junction box. This is going to provide an easier way to get your trailer wired. It provides a 7-way connector for your trailer, that way you can easily get everything connected to the 7-way port on your tow vehicle. The 7-way trailer end connector is already connected to the correct locations within the box. All you have to do is run your trailer wiring inside the junction box, match it up with the correct functions and you're going to be ready to go. This is going to measure 10 feet long. It's a heavy duty cord so it's going to give you the length that you need and it's going to provide the protection to the wires that we're looking for.

It's going to feature a weatherproof and corrosion resistant design, which is going to help insure that this plug is going to last for years. Taking a look at the trailer end plug right here, that's going to connect to the tow vehicle. It's got the finger tabs, which allows for easy connecting and disconnecting, and it's got the tab here on top, we call that an alignment tab and that's going to align in the groove in the socket that would be on the 7-way connector on the vehicle. We're going to take a look inside the junction box real quick. It's got 2 screws here on top that holds the lid on to the bottom portion of the box. They'll be Phillips head screws, we can easily remove those. Then we'll point out some features about the box.

The lid easily comes off. Inside here, you can see that it's going to have the posts. I do want to mention that these posts are going to be color coded, they've got the tips colored. It's going to say the color coding on this side of the posts and on the bottom side it's actually going to label the functions. So right here, it's white, it says white on this side and on the underside it says ground.

So we know that the white wire connects to the white post and that's going to be the ground function. That's going to be our ground wire. Also, I want to point out that on the 2 ports right here to run wires through, we'll see that they've got the rubber plugs. I'll just go ahead and remove all of those so we can get a better look at it. It's going to have set screws located in here so that way, when you run the wiring through, you can tighten down those set screws and it's going to bring a clamp down over the wires which is going to help keep dirt and moisture and any other elements out of the box. It's going to come with solid plugs, that way whatever holes you're not using .. You've got 2 on this side and then 1 on each side of the box.

Whatever holes you aren't using, you can use those solid plugs to cover up. It's going to come with 4 plugs that have pre-cut holes in them already. That way you can run your wires through. That acts as a grommet so it still allows you to run the wires through, but it's going to keep out anything that could pass by the wires. Both of those are included, 4 of each. 4 solids, 4 with pre-cut holes. It seems like a really nice design. Again, weatherproof and corrosion resistant design. Hardware is included for each connection port inside the junction box. Your mounting hardware is sold separately. You can see here on the bottom of the box, we're going to have 2 mount hole locations, 1 on each side. If we take a measurement, the distance between those mount holes, that's going to give us a measurement of 7 and 3/8ths of an inch. The overall length from edge to edge, those mounting tabs, that looks to measure about 8 and 1/8th inches long. The width of the box, that's going to measure about 3 and 1/4 inches. Let's go ahead and put that lid back on and then we can go ahead and give you a measurement of the overall height as well. The diameter of those mount holes is going to measure 5/16ths of an inch. Again, mounting hardware is not included so that will need to be provided separately. We'll take a look at the overall height of the box, we can see that that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 and 1/4 inches. This is CETL and ETL US listed, which means that this product has been tested and meets the safety standards for use in Canada and for use in the United States. That's going to do it for today's look at the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with the included junction box.

Order was complete and delivered in a timely manner. Only problem (minor) was the 7way pigtail was not wired to color code. Had to use test light to get 3 of the wires in correct location. Could be a problem if someone wasn't comfortable with ringing out wires. 375359

I bought this to replace the cord on my 5th wheel. The original one is OK, but the plug doesn't lock into the new receptacle I installed in the truck bed. This new plug is molded to the cord, and has dual contacts (better electrical connection) and the lug is of the proper dimension to hold it securely in the receptacle. The construction of the terminal box is satisfactory, the wire sizes are adequate, and the cord jacket appears to be thicker than most. The cord is flexible. 412723

This makes everything easier, particularly when a breakaway is also added to the system. All connections-- brake control wires, lighting wires, breakaway wiring, breakaway battery wiring-- is connected here. I used it on a small 5x10 covered utility trailer, and the cord was way too long. I could have shortened it, but I chose the easier route of wrapping the excess in a big loop and tying to the A-frame. 566060

all colors matched trailer wiring... I soldered all connectors... there's and mine.. good to go. better then the Factory butt connectors.. 402094

by:

Used this to convert a trailer from 4 pin to 7 blade connector so that I could add brakes. Gives a nice place to terminate your wires. The wire color guide on the product page was very helpful when it came to wiring up the trailer. Plan on putting some type of sealant around the wires because unless you use a large 7 conductor wire there will be a gap where water could get in. 423934

by:

Ordered this to replace the very poor factory wiring on my 18 foot car trailer. Very impressed with quality and with quick delivery of product. I would recommend measuring your trailer to make sure the 10 foot cord is not too long. I didn't measure first but I was lucky and was able to make it work. Only complaint is what many others have said about the wire color. I know wire color may vary based on manufacturer, but the standard wire color chart on this very website is different from the colors in this plug. It is not hard to figure out, mostly just annoying having to use a circuit tester to verify the wires or having the color chart pulled up. Overall great product, Just annoying about the wire color. 396368



- 277-000141
by:

Great concept, only it came wired incorrectly in the junction box. Got it all wired to the trailer only to find out it was wired wrong. Then had to ohm out all of the pins in the connector to the studs in the box. Really dissappointing. 597069


Comments

There is more than one accepted wiring convention for a 7-way trailer connector, which is why we specifically state which wire color carries which circuit in the product description above.

My trailer plug with junction box came in a timely manner and was exactly what I was looking for. Very heavy duty and will make my connections much cleaner, excellent price as well. I would highly recommend etrailer. 304786



- 277-000141
by:

It couldn't be simpler and the look of it is clean! I will say this though, pay attention to the wiring diagram for this, it is not a standard trailer wiring scheme, and until I emailed in and they sent me another diagram I was lost. Once I got straightened out though, my trialer is awesome. Super easy to install and wire. Also the adapter end that hooks up to your car is well made and very durable. 570906



- 277-000141
by:

This product is great!! It is probably overkill for my little utility trailer but I was tired of re-wiring it for shorts in the crappy standard wire that came with the light sets. This junction box feels very sturdy and has the cable/plug is very hefty as well. Easy to setup. The colors didn't match what my car was but it is very simple to swap the terminals to what you need. I forgot to take more pictures through out my install. 345179



- 277-000141
by:

Nice quality item, too bad the pin configuration on the plug had all the wires connected incorrectly at the box. What should have been simple "follow the colors" wiring, ended up blowing fuses in my Tahoe and causing me to have to "pin out" the cable and rewire the box entirely. What a nightmare! 572006


Comments

There are many accepted trailer wiring color codes. For this reason we recommend testing the wiring by function with a circuit tester such as part # 40376.

Used this to allow a plug and play to hook up needed tail and brake/running lights on my LanceCamper. Spliced the female Lance plug into the provided junctions in the box. Worked great. No under the truck cutting into the wiring harness. 572944

This is a great part It made wiring in the trailer very easy. It fit underneath the gooseneck and mounted up real nice. I recommend it to anyone that needs to rewire their trailer. 353210

Anthony was very helpful,I needed a trailer pig tail and junction box 7 pole. Was going to order two items.Anthony pointed out that a combo kit was avialable for a substantial savings. Anthony notified me product was not avialable but kept update when it was. He also notified me when it was going to be shipped and it arrivied on time in the best possible condition. I have done business with E-Trailer before by this experience was far beyond just a business tranaction with a customer.Hope all tranactions will be as pain free as this one was.All wire from trailer frame was remove before restoration,new box made rewire easier and neat. The only issue i have is that a wire schematic was not included with the harness and box . Would have made it easier to install for those who don't know the wire paths. Thanks Steve Koza. 325076

Last project built. Used etrailer for almost all parts, 7 pin wiring harness, junction box, tail lights, jacks vent cover and so. Love the leveling jacks. Friend wants one now so started another one. I will be getting all the parts from etrailer... 486389



- 277-000141
by:

The one I received does not work. The pins inside are different sizes as you can see the smaller ones are spread and only plugged in once. I am contacting etrailer next to resolve. Already cut my wiring for this application. I wanted a weather tight enclosure rather than a house electrical box. 572418

Little over a year since install and no problem thus far with this product. The rubber grommets supplied with it keeps everything water tight. Wires are not colored coordinated! I overlooked that detail in product description and had to rewire everything, lol. 658499

Actually, theres more than one accepted wire color convention when it comes to trailer wiring color codes which is why we list the function for each terminal/wire color in the product description.

I installed this product yesterday and it is a really nice product. It would be a great product if the darn wire colors from the plug were the same as the industry standard. But if you go by what is on the small mount that the wires screwed to it is accurate. I got the longer 10' cable as I wanted to mount it further back than the stock metal electrical box that they mount all the stuff in from the factory. I ended up mounting it on the bottom side of the cross braces on the bottom side of the trailer. I also installed a seperate fuse box to individually fuse all the circuits so that if anything on the trailer shorted out it wouldn't blow the fuses in the truck. 318401


Comments

I loved that I got the longer replacement so I was able to move it to a more easier place to access.

This cable and junction box are built like a tank. I used it to neatly wire up a trailer, and it worked great for that purpose. Be sure to note that it follows the RV wiring standard, so if you use it for a trailer, you'll have to cross-reference which wires mean what in an RV vs. a trailer. 719646

I just received the item today and it hasn't been installed yet, but the quality looks to be great. I have dealt with this company for almost a year now and they have been really above board and their products have been as advertised. I'd recommend them without reservation. 680057

I used this in the conversion of a tent trailer from hydraulic surge brakes over to electric. The long cord offered lots of options for location on the trailer and the terminal box makes for a very nice and clean electrical box. My only complaint was that it came with no instructions or wiring diagram or code, I followed color codes based on what I found on the web. That didn't work, I thought the plug was bad and contacted etrailer. Olivia was very helpful, provided colors vs functions for the box. I was skeptical, but did what she said and the system worked. My suggestion would be to include the wiring diagram and/or color coding with the product, it would make life much easier! Had that been done, I would rate at 5 stars. 677806

great product makes wiring trailer very simple with all connections in one location. 673739



- 277-000141
by:

It's a very good product, however make note that your 7-pin may not correspond to the color pattern exactly. Make sure you look up the configuration of your 7-pin, and cross-reference it to the etrailer set up before wiring up your lights. My 2012 Tacoma Prerunner was a little different. Other than that it is well made and easy to use. I'm very happy with mine. 673644

Wire color used is off from the industry standard. Yellow wire is set as battery and red wire was left turn. Once I got that squared away it has been working fine. 667357



- 277-000141
by:

Great piece! Made re wiring my car hauler easy, and will make any future repairs or troubleshooting MUCH easier than it would normally be on a trailer. For reference, the wire terminal studs inside the junction box are #10, so you’ll need #10 ring terminals to complete your wiring. Nice quality cable with the junction block as well! 662490

I'm building a small camping trailer (akin to a teardrop, but a bit more boxy) to tow behind my wife's 2008 Subaru Outback wagon (L.L. Bean with six cylinder engine). Because I'm building the aluminum frame from scratch, I needed everything from the Fulton Fas-Lok coupler, Dutton-Lainson coupler handle and round Bulldog A-frame jack with footplate to a complete assortment of LED lights for every function (along with a few reflectors). The running lights (both amber and red) and the triple function tail/turn/brake lights were from Optronics (I also bought one of the over 80" identification light bars as added insurance, since my outside measurement at the fenders will be exactly 80"); the backup lights were from Hot-Line. Even the license plate light is LED. All appear to be of excellent quality and easily installed with a pair of butt connectors and a couple of (self-tapping ?) screws. I chose the Timbren 2200 Axle-Less suspension system, and a very knowledgeable gentleman at etrailer.com helped me choose the correct 10" drums and self-adjusting electric brakes (he even saved me some money in the process). For the Subaru, I ordered the custom fit Class III Draw-Tite Max-Frame trailer hitch receiver with the appropriate Curt -T connector wiring harness for 4-pole flat connector along with the ETBC7 universal kit to convert to a 7-way plug while retaining the 4-way. I'll connect that to the trailer with the Epicord 7-way molded trailer plug with junction box and 10 foot cord. And I chose the AuTowbrake electric brake controller, so that I could also pull the camper with my pickup without having to rewire it. To make my installation waterproof, I bought an assortment of Deka heat shrink butt connectors and added a Trades Pro dual range heat gun with nozzles. I made one mistake on my order. The safety chain I ordered is strong enough for the trailer weight, but the carabiners are a fraction too small to fit onto the trailer hitch (I'll use them for something else and buy a pair just a bit larger). I still need to order a pair of drop-leg stabilizer jacks for the rear corners (I simply forgot to add them to the list). And I know we'll want one of the manual lift Maxxair 10-speed reversible vent fans (my wife likes the smoke cover - me, too, but don't tell her). Everything I actually ordered arrived this morning, and I am very pleased with the apparent quality every item - no unexpected disappointments. My wife has me on a fairly tight deadline for completion of her 'Beddy Bye Basket' (a private joke related to Disney's 'The Aristocats' and our grandsons). I may post a few pictures as the building progresses, but the photos on the website are representative of the quality of the parts I received, and the videos gave me the information I needed to be confident I could do the installations. 652848

Seem to be a great product to use, I didn't come with any diagram as to what color posts in the box were to what light, stop, or brake. 647336

Although I purchased the Epicord harness about a year ago, I just had it installed... January 2019.... when my trailer was disabled & being repaired at {a big box camping supply store location} in Katy, TX. During the trailer repair I included replacing the trailer harness with the Epicord product because they indicated that they were familiar with how to install this item. It worked OK afterwards but the way they installed the the harness junction box was questionable... when I returned to my home in March I had another reputable RV center redo the installation of the junction box. I like the Epicord harness item and recommend it. CAUTION: Don't ever get your trailer fixed at {the big box camping supply store}... especially the one in Katy, TX just west of Houston! 646862

It was just as expected. Good quality and no hidden issues. For everyone else’s essay, the studs are 5mm. So, for the best fit grab you some 5mm heat shrink ring terminals. 1/4in for the mounting hardware. This went on my boat trailer, so I grabbed some stainless steel 1/4in hardware and used nylon lock nuts. I used extension cord for my wire runs. A grounded extension cord will give you your 3 wire runs for the tail lights, a standard 2 blade extension cord for any marker/running lights. Heatshrink adhesive butt connectors on all connections. The wiring info that ETrailer provides was correct for my 2019 F150. Overall makes for a solid trailer light setup. Highly recommend this junction box. 637437

  • Recommended Complete Disc Brake Conversion System For 10,000 lb Dexter Axles

  • Integrated Brake Controller, Hydraulic Brakes and Trailer Wiring for Boat Trailer
  • If your boat trailer has a mechanical surge actuator coupler like # 8605001 then no trailer brake controller is required. The inertia of the trailer moving forward provides the compression to push hydraulic fluid to the brakes. If on the other hand you have an EOH system, electric-over-hydraulic, such as with an actuator like # HBA-12 for drum brakes or # HBA16 for disc brakes, then you DO still need a trailer brake controller to deliver the electrical signals to the actuator, which...

  • The reason that 10 Gauge # 10-1-1 or 12 Gauge # 12-1-1 wire is recommended for 10" brake assemblies, like part # AKEBRK-35-SA, is because they pull more power than the lights on your trailer. I believe the green wire you are referring to carries the right turn/stop lighting functions as you can see from the attached photo of a trailer side 4-Way.

  • Troubleshooting RV Electric Brakes That Do Not Engage
  • Since you have tried your truck with another RV trailer and found that trailer's brakes worked fine with your truck and its brake controller this suggests the problem is on the trailer side. There is a simple test you can do on your trailer's brakes that needs only a well-charged battery, such as the one in your truck. If you connect wires to the battery and directly apply their other ends to the brake and ground contacts on the trailer's 7-way (see photo please) all brakes on the trailer...

  • I can absolutely help you with this trailer. First, I recommend using the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box - 10' Long # 277-000141 along with ring terminals # 44-5310A.

  • How to Access +12V Power Circuit in 7-Way Wiring to Power Fuel Pump
  • 7-way trailer wiring includes a +12V auxiliary power circuit that can be used for a range of purposes from powering an electric jack to topping off a trailer-mounted battery. This circuit is handled by the contact at the 1:00 position as you look at the vehicle's trailer socket. The ground is at the opposite pin, the one at the 7:00 position. Please refer to the linked photo. For an easy way to access this power circuit to operate your fuel pump you could wire in a 7-way plug like #...

  • Parts Needed to Install Trailer Brakes on a Load Rite Trailer Model UT6512
  • Looks like your Load Rite trailer UT6512 has a 3,500 lb axle. Most likely it's a standard 3,500 lb trailer axle but first you have to check to see if the axle has brake mounting flanges. If you can get back to me with whether or not you have brake flanges and the brand of your axle (most likely Lippert or Dexter) I can see which kit we have that may work. Check out the link I attached to see a guide to use for adding brakes to your trailer.

  • Potential Causes for Continuous "Check Trailer Wiring" Warning Message on 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • I appreciate your fighting spirit and your urge to get to the bottom of the issue behind the intermittent trailer connection warnings that appear on your 2018 Silverado that has a factory-installed trailer brake controller. But one of your comments caught my ear: "...they're barely, if at all, there..." I presume you are referring to the trailer brakes showing little or no actual stopping power; is this correct? The most obvious direction for my thinking on this is a simple connectivity...

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring Configuration

This junction box includes a pre-wired 7-way trailer plug, like the one shown in the linked photo which is wired to the RV standard. By installing this box on the trailer you...

  • How to Determine if 2 Brown Wires on Trailer with 7-Way are Used for Running Lights
  • It is very likely that the wiring on your trailer has 2 Brown wires which carries the running lights on either side of the trailer like the wishbone style harness # A35W42B from Optronics does. You will want to verify this before connecting them to a replacement 7-Way though. You can do this by using a 12V battery, like what would be in your truck, and ground the negative terminal while using the positive terminal to test both Brown wires to see what light function they carry.

  • Parts Needed to Add Brakes to a Tandem 3,500 lb Axle Trailer to Tow with a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • It sounds like you currently have a wheel hub that has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern (taken from the far end of one bolt to the center of one directly across from it) and that you already have a brake mounting flange on two 3,500 lb axles. If this is the case then I recommend using the electric brake kit # AKEBRK-35-SA along with the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-K.

  • What is Needed to Tow a M105A2 Military Trailer with a 2013 Dodge Durango

  • Recommendation for Adding Electric Trailer Brakes to Trailer with 3,500 lb Axles & 5 on 5 Inch Hubs

These assemblies will self-adjust to ensure you have the best braking without needing to manually adjust them every few months. Then for your 5 on 5 inch hubs, I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 5 # AKHD-550-35-K.

For 10 x 2-1/4 inch hubs, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35 or the self-adjusting # AKEBRK-35-SA. If...
