Video Transcript for Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring HM47046 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna take a look at the Hopkins, eight foot long, coiled, night-glow tow bar extension chord, with the four-way round sockets.Now, this kit will let you easily run power from your RV to your tow vehicle. The adapter chord connects the four-way round connector that'll mount on your RV to the four-way round connector that mounts on your tow vehicle.Comes with the two four-way round sockets that wire into your RV and your tow car. The mount will come with . Or, the sockets do come with the mounts for those sockets, and the mounting hardware to install them.Now, on your adapter chord here, it has the night-glow plugs on the end, which will light up when your tail lights on your RV are activated. What's night about that is when you plug it in, it'll confirm continuity of your tail light circuits, and since it lights up, it helps find your electrical connections in the dark.It is a coiled cable, which will stretch to fit your needs, and it keeps the wire from dragging on the ground. It has the easy to grip, heave duty plugs on the end.

So, basically, these would just open up, and then you plug them right into there, simple as that.Specs on this, the length of this chord, when it's fully stretched, is eight feet. And the part will come with everything shown here on the table.But that should do it for the review on the Hopkins, eight foot long coil, night-glow tow bar extension chord, with the four-way round sockets.

Just now installing the coil. Instructions are quite simple and easy to understand. Only thing I would mention is there are nuts and bolts to attach the plug adapter to the bracket. 316432

Review from a similar Hopkins Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


While this cable is made well, it used an alternate pin-out for the brake signal which made it unusable in my application. It is also so tightly coiled that while it is technically long enough to connect from motorhome to towed vehicle there is far too much tension on the cable - risking a loss of connection (and the cable itself). Given the extreme tension and fact that the cable used molded connectors - it is not possible to correct the pin-out without shortening the cable further - so this one is on my junk pile. 242266

Reasonably priced and shipped fast. Although the harness techically is long enough the coils are a little stiff and that concerns me. I streached the coils a bit to relieve some of the stiffness and it seem to have improved it some. However the connectors on both the RV and the toad have spring loaded catches on the plug so I don't expect that to be a problem. The only improvement I could suggest is to include a wiring diagram and a pin lable guide with the 6 pin connector which was included with the cable. Only two of the terminals are clearly labled (LT & Gnd) while another is labled TM, which I later found out was for the running lights. The other terminals are not even labled on the plug. With a little searching on the internet a diagram is available, however, I believe a standard wiring diagram should have been included which shows a clear picture of the connections. A small thing that would cost very little in the packaging and would be a great improvement. The reson for the 3 star rating. A more flexible cable and a diagram would have received 5 stars. 566539

Very happy with etrailer for the purchase of a Blue Ox tow bar with needed hook ups for lights, etc and an Air Force One Brake system for my 2018 F150. Crystal did a great job of comparing options and matching pricing from across the web. She offered free installation. The Installer, Shane was awesome, I wanted all hookups hidden by the front plate on the F150 when not towing, Shane came through and then some. Finally, the manager Robert was excellent on follow-up as we had some air leak once we got home. etrailer stood behind everything and follow was exceptional. Very pleased! 553940

The cord it's self is a little short, it will reach OK but is a little tight if you're using a dropped/raised hitch adapter. The plastic plug is a little cheap too. Guess you get what you paid for. Better off spending a couple $$$'s more for a name brand set. 416605

Great experience, quick shipping, excellent video and instructional references to go along with the products. I did the installation of the product myself and was quite pleased with the product, quality seems excellent and installation straight forward. This was a perfect match for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler - 2014 Fleetwood Bounder motorhome combination. 339280

I'am in the process of setting up my 2017 Equinox to tow behind our motorhome. I've placed 4-orders with etrailer. So far I've installed the base plate, the wiring from the rear tail lights to the front end.I also received my Tow bar and the quick release parts. my next project is to install the invisi brake system. I want to send Kudos to Cathy T for her help and her great customer service. I'am also thanking James A for his quick response to a question about the wiring harness. I'am extremely happy with the quality of everything I ordered at etrailer. Thanks 421654

This set of sockets, mounts and cord are a good price from etrailer. Everything arrived in good condition a few days after placing the order. I use this to hook up the lights on my tow car to my RV. I like the coiled cord instead of a straight one. The sockets are plastic, but seem well constructed. The contacts are not copper, but steel(?). Hope they don't corrode. I tried the hookup already and everything worked perfect. Naturally, you have to be careful to connect the individual wires to the right terminals. A diagram is included. 363006

  • Availability of 8 Foot Long 4-Way Wiring Extension
  • We do have 4-Way flat to 4-Way flat extension adapters available, however they do not feature a coiled wire like you mentioned in your question. I recommend taking a look at the Hopkins 4-Pole Flat Wiring Extension # HM48235. This extension measures 120 inches (10 feet) long, which is a bit longer than you need but is the closest option available. We also have a 6 foot extension loop with part # RM-300150-00.

  • Towing a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Behind an RV
  • The images of the parts you mentioned are there to show you where they would install but they are not included. If you look at the parts list you will notice that they are not included. That is a bit confusing though. The reason they are not included is because there is no way to tell what a given person might need for wiring and if they are even using a supplemental braking system that has a breakaway system, if they are using one at all.

  • Good news, I can help you pick out the right base plate kit for your 2015 Ford Focus. Staying in the Roadmaster family since you have a Falcon # RM-520, the Roadmaster # RM-524443-5 and the Roadmaster # RM-524443-4 are both great fits for your 2015 Ford Focus SE Hatchback. Both will be compatible with your tow bar, just depends on how you would like the front of the vehicle to look after the install. The difference of the EZ4 and EZ5 is the mounting arms.

  • Recommended 4-Way Connection Between Towed Vehicle and Motorhome
  • The only real advantage of the 4 round over the 4 flat trailer connector is the clean look of the connection point and the protection from elements when not in use. For instance the Pollak Heavy-Duty, 4-Pole, Round Pin Socket, Concealed Terminals - Chrome - Vehicle End # PK11410 has a clean finished look on the front of a towed vehicle and will protect the connection from dirt and debris with the spring loaded cover. Many people like the connection between the motorhome using a harness...

  • 4-Way Prong Wiring Needed That is 8' Long
  • If you are looking for just an extension then the Hopkins 4-Pole Flat Wiring Extension # HM48235 that you referenced is 10' long and will be exactly what you are needing. For a flat towing application we have the common 4-Way round connectors like part # HM47046 which is 8' long or for a 4-Way flat connector you would need both the part # RM-300150-00 (6') and the part # HM47004 (2'). Let me know if you are looking for something different and I can make a recommendation for you.
