Video Transcript for Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring HM47053 Review

Today, we're going to review part number HM47053. This is the Hopkins Endurance flex coil trailer connector adapter with the night glow. It has a 7 way to 6 pole round. Now, this adapter will convert your 7 pole blade style vehicle end connector for use with a 6 wire round connector on your vehicle being towed. It does have the night glow function. What that does is, it eliminates both plugs, when your taillights on the tow vehicle are activated. This will help enable you to find your electrical connections in the dark.

It is a heavy duty, flexible coil cable, which stretches up to 8 feet long. This will let you connect the two vehicle's socket and the trailer's plug with ease. Being coiled, it helps prevent the wires from dragging on the ground. It has a very large, easy grip design on both connectors. You can see right here, you just put your fingers in here to plug it in, and to pull it out.

Same way on here. Makes installing and removing your plugs very easy. The center pin on the 6 way plug is wired for electric brake signal. The reason I mention that, because a 6 way round can usually be wired one of two ways. Either if the center pin can be for 12 volt accessories, or it can be for the electric brake signal. In this case, this adapter, the center pin is wired for the electric brake signal. The overall diameter of this yellow cable is 7/16ths of an inch.

The wire gauges on the inside are 16 gauge. That should do it for the review on part number HM47053, the Hopkins Endurance flex coil trailer connector adapter with the night glow function, 7 way to 6 pole round. .

Well packaged and appears to be good quality. I'm looking forward to seeing how the polarity check light works which will save a bunch of time when hooking up 333595


Comments

The connector cable works fine. My only issue is that the coils are wound very tight and even at a short connection length the motorhome end can pull out. When not in use I hang it from the rafters in my garage with a 5 pound weight on it to try and stretch it out a bit.

Hi! Works fine using as the power and light hookup for a Toad behind a motor home.

Excellent product that is like new after 1 year of use. The lighted ends readily confirm proper connection. 572175

Excellent service from etrailer. The Flex-Coil Adapter is said to stretch to 8' but it is such a tight stretch that one end pulled out of the motorhome recepticle the first time I tried it. I probably didn't have it fully seated in the recepticle and that the tightness of the coil will ease with use. It appears to be a well-made product. 58551


Comments

After a year, it still does the job but it never did stretch out as I had hoped and would sometimes pull out of the receptacles. I solved this by wrapping a hook

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

Working fine after a year of use, would not change a thing.

I bought this to replace my original dinghy connector cord. Very nicely made. Works fine but it needs to be just a few inches longer. On one occasion, after making a sharp turn, the tension on the cord pulled just enough on the coach end of the connection to slightly dislodge the plug and disconnect the circuits. Fortunately, I noticed there was no green pilot light on the control head of my dinghy brake system. Checked the plug connections and found the pug at the coach end slightly ajar. Pushed the plug back into place and all was fine. If the cord was 6" longer it would be perfect. 367646

Pluses are that the product is exactly as advertised, arrived on time at nearly half the cost of the blue coiled wire i needed to replace. Minuses are length, (it works but it pulls harder on the connectors than it would if it was a foot longer) and the red translucent molded connectors soften while in hot climates. Only time will tell how long they last. (unfortunately the wire isn't long enough to replace connectors with aftermarket ones) If manufacturer would harden the red ends and add a foot to the overall length they'd have the perfect trailer connecter for your toad. 87184


Comments

Thanks Patrick for great customer service and the best follow-up weve seen. Following a year of nearly continuous use we have had no negative issues with our coiled wiring pigtail. To my surprise the molded connectors are showing no signs of wear and the marginal length, although stretched tight, has not been an issue. I still believe adding 10-12 inches of lenght to the coil would be an improvement but overall the product has proved to be a wise purchase that we would definitely buy again.

Just what we were looking for, yet a way better price than retail. Half even with delivery, We're first time flat towers, looking to do things right the first time and save money if it turns out to not be the answer we're looking for. After searching online, we called for help/confirmation and the help she was. She called the manufacture to check a shorter lengtth, to no avail. Endedup it was perfect. Thank you. 156526


Comments

Great, I have tried to stretch it out, the constant retracting pull off the coiled construction seems to almost pull it out. I have grown more confident with its nature and secure it with a back up cable, to relieve some of the tension. The lighted ends also add confidence to the connection. Even my wife comments on its functionality. Too bad its wound so tight.

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

by:

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. The etrailer YouTube videos were excellent f.or step by step instructions. I saved a bundle doing the installation myself. 645103



- HM47053
by:

Purchased but was concerned because the price was great. The electrical harness was well built and sturdy. Have been using since I received the cable with no problems. I would purchase a again without question or concern. 635314

works as it should. The lighted ends are good for reassurance that it's getting power. 633712

Excellent product... meets all of my ex pectations 630912



- HM47053
by:

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



- HM47053
by:

Fast and reasonable shipping. Product works just as described. Hasn't been used yet, we'll see how it holds up on the road. 572313

We are full time travelers. Nothing is more frustrating than wiring issues between the MH and tow car. I've pieced together various setups with none being satisfactory. This connection is outstanding. Working with etrailer.com was painless. 569315



- HM47053
by:

worked great until our accident in Oct. 2017. Blew a tire on the bus and lost both bus and toad. harness worked as advertised until then. When we get back on the road, I plan on purchasing another. Thanks for the great customer service from etrailer, also. Safe travels, Mike 568654

This plug has worked well for the past year. The insulation wore off the old plug with which we replaced this. 554381



- HM47053
by:

The cable looks great not sure about length but is 8 feet when stretched out. One thing pins for battery 12 volts and break control (5 & 6) round plug are switched from wiring on old cable. Does not effect me as I do not use these pins on the car (they are open) in my case. 551331



- HM47053
by:

THIS NEW POWER CABLE IS VERY NICE . THE TERMINAL ENDS ARE VERY SECURE, AND THE ENDS GLOW AT NIGHT, MAKING IT EASIER TO HOOKUP TO TOW CAR AT NIGHT SND IT LOOKS COOL. I REALLY LIKE IT. 547147

by:

The cable looks nice and appears well built. At first glance it looks a little short, I will report back after trying it out. I hope it holds up better than the BlueOX one I bought last time. It spent most of it's life in the garage and the blue plastic outer coating just disintegrated. 506026



- HM47053

Electric cord seems to be well made. Haven't tried it out yet to see if it works, but got exactly what I was expecting. 500265

- HM47053

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

Received this product and tried it at home. So far so good.. However the cable could be 2 foot longer... It is stretched about to the limit without going anywhere. Going on a 150 mile shake down trip next week and tha will tell the real story.. This is a Ford 150 towed by a motor home. 442114

I researched getting all the parts and assembling the cord myself before I stumbled on this on etrailer. The cost for this was less than the parts, it was already assembled and should be just what I need. 434879

It was exactly like I expected and etrailer's service was fantastic. I THOUGHT I had ordered it but it never showed up (I probably forgot to push the "enter order" button. Anyway, I called them and spoke to Jesse. He went out of his way to make sure the order had not been entered, then entered it for me and followed up to make sure I got it. Thanks, Jesse! 399707

- HM47053
by:

The product works OK for the hookup between our Motor home and car but I do not care for the flexable ends which make it difficult to know whether they are properly seated in the connection, i.e. the "wings" on each end are too flexible and as such make it difficult to apply the proper pressure. 383673
