This is a quality product that costs much less than others. It features superior molded ends rather than the screw type most used in more expensive cords. I’ll buy this one again! 691523

Very good product. I had replaced the cord that came with the motor home a couple of times and still had problems. Put this s one on and no more problems. Still looks new.

Everything worked great except the I had to make adjustment to the 7 pin end in order to make a solid connection. The lid flap on the factory installed end would not hold the 7 pin end of the cord tight enough. 450829

I was a little worried about the 8' foot being too long and dragging between my toad and RV, but the coils keep it up, it would have way too much tension beyond 7'. My RV came with a 7 blade connector so that end was no question and I choose the 6 Pole so I could take power lead across in case I ever had an application for power or charging. I did not hook up the power lead out of the toad connector, but could easily do so at any point in the future without needing a new connector or cable. The Toad end connector does light up and can be seen day or night. 80817

Have used this for a full year and it has performed flawlessly from day one and many cycles on our toad! The lighted nite glow end confirms proper plug in continuity. My previous one had a black rubber sheathing on the coiled cord that flaked off in large chunks. This new one shows no signs of cracking! Will buy again if ever needed. etrailer.com has some of the best prices online and repeatedly outdo any of RV big box stores and RV dealer stores.

This is the 2nd time I’ve ordered from etrailer. Just as before, my order was here within 3-4 days. This time I ordered the electrical cord adapter. The quality is second to none and the price is about half what other suppliers are asking. I couldn’t be more pleased with the product or the fast service. 664247

Purchased the flat tow bar, connector and wiring harness for towing my CRV behind my RV. . The phone support was great, information was accurate. All parts were received timely.

As others have noted, this could be a little longer, it has to be stretched to fit. But it did not pull loose from the connections. It works. Hopefully it will not self destruct like the blue one did. Great service and communication from etrailer. 579471

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Accessories and Parts

  • Availability of Hopkins 7-way to 6-Way Flat Towing Umbilical Harnesses
    Hopkins has a few different 7-way to 6-pin options. For an 8 foot coiled cord that includes the 6-pin connector for the front of the towed vehicle, use part # HM47054. For a straight wire option, also including the 6-pin connector, use part # HM47057 and for the 8 foot coiled extension only, not including the connector for the towed vehicle, use part # HM47053

  • Can 12 Volt Circuit on Hopkins Trailer Connector Adapter HM47053 be Used to Charge Toad Battery
    Yes! You can provide a maintenance charge to the toad's battery through terminal A (the 12 volt circuit) using Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter # HM47053. You would just need to attach one end of a wire, # 12-1-1 (sold by the foot), to the back of the 6-Way on the toad and the other end to the positive terminal on the toad batter.

  • How are the 7- and 6-Way Trailer Connectors Wired in Hopkins Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter
    The 7-Way end is a standard blade style 7-Way like in the picture I have included. On the 6-Way end, the center pin is set up for electric brakes. I have included a picture of how it is configured as well.

You can search all such items using the page I linked for you. Click on the type of vehicle connector you have (7-way blade-style, for instance) and one the type of trailer connector (6-pole) to then see all items that will work to join them, like Hopkins Endurance # HM47053 and # HM47085.

    It sounds like you are looking for an umbilical wiring adapter to go from a 7-way blade on your RV to a 6-way round on your vehicle that you are flat towing. For that you would want the part # HM47053.

  • Difference Between Hopkins Connector Adapter # HM47053 and # HM47054
    Both the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter # HM47053 and the Hopkins # HM47054 referenced in your question feature the same 8 foot long, coiled adapter cord that will connect the 7-Way on your RV to the 6-Way round connector on the tow vehicle. The only difference between the two parts is that # HM47054 also includes a 6-Way socket with mounting bracket that you can mount to the vehicle. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also...

  • 7-Way to 6-Pole Adapter with Center Pin 12 Volt Power
    The Hopkins 7-Way to 6-Pole adapter # HM47053 only comes with a center pole brake configuration but we have # HM47083 that is set up for center pin 12 volt power. But it is 3 feet long. Another option is to use # BX88206 and just take apart the connectors and swap the 12 volt and brake output wires on one end.

  • What Gauge Wiring is Used in the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter HM47053
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil, # HM47053. The overall diameter of the molded yellow cable is 7/16 inches. The actual wires inside of the cable the packaging lists as 16 gauge wire that exceeds SAE standards.

  • Wiring Between RV and Flat Towed Vehicle Pulls Out When Turning
    If the distance is too far between the connectors on the motor home and vehicle then a straight cable would not help much unless it was a longer cable. You can try moving the location of the cable so there is enough slack to make turns without it pulling loose. Another option is to extend the 7-Way using something like # C56080. You probably would not need the full 7 feet of length this harness has but it would definitely be enough to prevent the cable from pulling out on turns. Currently,...

  • Recommended Adapter To Use With 6-Pole Round Trailer Connector And 7-Way Truck Connector
    To use the 6-way round plug on your trailer with the 7-way connector on your truck you can use part # HM47053. This adapter is 8-ft long and also has a Nite-glow feature so it is easy to find the trailer connections in the dark if needed.

  • Recommended 7-Way to 6-Pole Adaper with 12V Center Pin
    The round 6-Way end of the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter # HM47053 referenced in your question does feature a center pin but it is wired for the electric brake signal. If you need the center pin on the 6-Way to be wired for 12 volt power, I instead recommend the Hopkins # HM47083. This heavy-duty, coiled cable adapter can be stretched to 3 feet in length and will allow you to connect the 7-Way on your RV to the 6-Way connector on your towed vehicle or trailer.

  • Can the Hopkins Endurance Adapter # HM47053 Be Flipped Around and Used the Opposite Way
    The Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter w/ Nite-Glow # HM47053 that you referenced will need to be oriented with the 7-Way connector plugged into the vehicle and the 6-Pole connector plugged in the trailer because the ends are male and female specific. You can instead use the Adapter 6-Pole to 7-Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter # 47435 and mount it with part # PK12711U. For a no-drill installation you can use Curt # C57202. You will need to make sure that the center pin...

  • Length of Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil 7-Way to 6-Way Trailer Connector Adapter Nite-Glow # HM47053
    I went to the warehouse to measure the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter w/ Nite-Glow, # HM47053, and when stretched, the adapter does indeed measure 8' from the end of the 7-way to the end of the 6-pole connector. 8' is the longest 7-way to 6-pole adapter that we offer.

  • Replacement 7-Wire to 6-Wire Adapter for Roadmaster Wiring Kit RM-15267
    It sounds like you just need the coiled 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil connector adapter from the # RM-15267, for which you can use the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter w/ Nite-Glow - 7-Way to 6-Pole - 8' Long # HM47053. If you wanted an exact Roadmaster replacement you'll want to use the Roadmaster 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Kit # RM-146-7. Either one of these would work for this application and would not require any soldering of connections.

These include solid adapters like # HM47570 as well as cabled types like # HM47053 and # HM47083. I recommend a cabled adapter since it will provide strain relief and make it easier to do the connections. You need to note that a 6-way can be configured in either of two ways.

    I believe you are looking for the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter w/ Nite-Glow - 7-Way to 6-Pole - 8' Long, # HM47053. If you need a 6-way socket, I recommend the Pollak 6-Pole, Round Pin, Plastic Trailer Wiring Socket w/ Rubber Boot - Vehicle End, # PK12720.

  • Is 7-Way on Motorhome Compatible with 6-Way on Roadmaster Tow Dolly
    Yes, you simply need to use a connector/adapter like the Hopkins Nite-Glow # HM47053 so that the 7-Way on your 2006 Pleasureway is compatible with the 6-Way, like part # PK11604, on your Roadmaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes # RM-2050-1 (3477). If you were asking about this setup being compatible with the Curt Echo # C51180 that you were looking at then the answer is yes to that as well.

  • Adding Wiring for Braking System With a 2006 Jeep Wrangler.
    In order to get 12V for your battery charger, you will only need to splice wires. You would want to us the 4-Pole Loop with Cover # HM47115, cut off one connector and splice it into the RoadMaster 6-Wire Trailer Connector # RM-910030-7. For an adapter you would then want to use the Hopkins Endurance Flex-Coil Trailer Connector Adapter - 7-Way to 6-Pole # HM47053.

    Looks like your 2013 Mini Countryman already has a base plate kit like you mentioned as well as a diode lighting kit installed as well. So for a tow bar the Blue Ox Avail part # BX7420 would be a really great option that's easy to use and comes with safety cables. Then for a 7-way to 6-way adapter you'd just need the part # HM47053. And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot...
