Video Transcript for Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring HM47054 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number HM47054. This is the Hopkins Nite-Glow Tow Bar Extension Cord. It's going to have a 7-blade connector on one end and a 6-way route connector on the other. When fully stretched out, it's going to measure 8 feet in length. This kit is going to let you easily run power from your RV to your towed vehicle. The adapter cord is going to connect the 7-way blade-style connector on your RV over to the 6-way round connector that mounts on your towed vehicle. Now your vehicle is going to have a 6-way round socket that's at one end of the wires that run through your towed car.

Usually that's not mounted anywhere and so Hopkins provides a nice mounting kit. That way, you can mount your 6-way round socket for easy connectivity when applying or connecting the tow bar extension cord. If your vehicle has a 6-way round wiring system, the socket is going to fit it perfectly. It's got a nice spring loaded door on it. That way, it's always going to stay shut to protect the connection points, and it's going to include all the mounting hardware to get that on there and installed. It's really simple to install.

All you got to do is connect the wires to different connectors back here, feed the wires through the grommet, reconnect it, and then all you got to do is secure it to the mounting location using the included hardware. That's really neat that they include that for you. Again, it's just going to make it really easy to connect your extension cord. You got the 7-blade on one end, to the 6-way round connector that mounts on your towed vehicle on the other end. The plugs are actually a Nite-Glow plug.

These are going to light up when the tail lights on the RV are activated. That's going to confirm continuity of the tail light circuits and it's going to let you find your electrical connections, even in low-light conditions. The coiled cable is going to stretch to fit your needs. It's also going to keep the wire from dragging on the ground when it's connected. It's got that nice coiled feature to it so whatever slack it does have in it, it's going to go back into coiled form and keep it off the ground. It's also going to provide easy and convenient storage, and it's got a nice bright yellow color to it for high visibility. It's got the really nice easy-to-grip, heavy-duty plugs.

It's going to be located on each connector. The cable length, when fully stretched, is going to be 8 feet and then the cable diameter's going to be 17/16 of an inch. It's also going to come with detailed installation and instructions that are going to identify the wiring codes. That way you know exactly what connection provides what functions. That's going to do it for our review of part number HM7054. This is the Hopkins Nite-Glow Tow Bar Extension Cord. .

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

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

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

Great product so far. The only concern I have is the coil "return" is very strong. This company is fantastic. Shipping was immediate and communication about the order, during the order process, is superb! 345326

by:

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'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

  • Recommended Wiring to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler 2-Door with 2005 Bounder
  • I'm glad no one was hurt in the loss of your Liberty's brave fit against the cement truck, but don't worry, I can help you equip your Wrangler with the proper products to get it flat tow ready. First, I would recommend the Hopkins wiring harness # HM56200 because we've had better luck with them not having issues after installation. This wiring harness has diodes to prevent back-feeding built in but if you wanted to install more we offer # RM-790 or # RM-690. To wire up the 4-way, that...

You can determine if these adapters are compatible by measuring the thickness of the D-Ring mounts. If they are 1 inch thick then these will work great!
