Video Transcript for Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring HM47056 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Hopkins eight foot long coiled night glow tow bar extension cord with the six way round sockets. Now, this kit will let you easily run power from your RV to your tow vehicle. The adapter cord, this will connect a six way round connector that mounts on your RV to the six way round connector that'll mount on your tow car. It does include the two six way round sockets that you'll wire into the RV and the tow car, and comes with the mounting brackets for installing them, too, with the mounting hardware.Now, what's nice on this adapter cord, the two ends here, the red ends, they're night glow plugs which will light up when your taillights on the RV are activated. What's nice about that is it'll confirm continuity of your taillight circuits and it'll also help you find your electrical connections in the dark.It is a coiled cable that'll stretch to fit your needs, keeps the wire from dragging on the ground, and on each end they do use the easy to grip heavy duty finger pulls here that'll help you install it and even remove it.A few specs on this again. The cable length, when it's fully stretched, would be eight foot long.But that should do it for the review on the Hopkins eight foot long coiled night glow tow bar extension cord with the six way round sockets..

To be clear, this review is for the original cord, which must've had a defect in the jacket material, as it literally fell apart. The electrical connection worked fine. Just received a free replacement, (I had to pay return shipping) in a timely manner. We'll see if this one is better.




by:

The glow coating started to crack and fall off exposing the wires right out of the package. The replacement was received after a 45 day road trip and we haven’t gone anywhere with it yest. The first was dry and brittle - this one seems much more pliable so we’ll see. Thanks for replacing it, just wish it had made it before we drove from NM to WA and back.thank goodness for duck tape




by:

I have sent an email about a problem with this order. I will need it replaced, but since I have used this same item in the past, I do not think one defective piece deserves a bad review unless there is difficulty getting the replacement, so I will not review it at this time.




by:

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.




by:

Came unplugged after being used about 16 cycles, it doesn't take long to destroy at 65 MPH. Will stay with metal plugs from now on.
Thirty six years RVing second cable lost. First was caught between hitch and towbar my fault.

Used for towing Jeep behind motor home. 5 wires needed for tail lights, left turn, right turn, ground, and Invisibrake indicator/alarm.




by:

The products purchased were to allow me to tow my new Jeep Grand Cherokee behind my motorhome. Actually I had purchased a similar setup from you Five years earlier for my 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Both worked as advertised and I was very satisfied.

Outer cover broke at the beginning of the curl on both ends on first trip

Product was delivered in a timely manner. They were easy to install and fit my 2015 Jeep Wrangler perfectly. All pieces were reasonably priced and less expensive than if purchased separately.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


Nicely packaged, it was easy to install. It being a yellow cord it should be easy to find, but the ends light with the lights of the rv on, so if I have to connect or disconnect in the dark it will help. Thank you e-trailer for the quick response and great customer service.

Seems to be a sturdy product. We'll see how it performs after 5 months on the road. Thanks, etrailer, for the affordable options compared to my local RV stores.

Went through a long hot summer of use without fail. Looks like it will last a lot longer.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


This is a great cord for towing. The coil is quite strong and doesn't hang down when towing. It stretches easily enough for a straight run back to the toad, but not enough for a diagonal run, requiring repositioning of the plug socket on the back of the RV.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


Hardware is good. I have matted and de-matted the connectors about 20 times over a travel season with no wear issues. I would repurchase if needed. I also want to thank e-trailer for pointing me the right direction with this purchase.

  • How To Wire A Charge Line Kit On A 6-Pole Socket For Flat Towing
    The Hopkins Nite-Glow Tow Bar Extension Cord w/ Sockets # HM47056 is actually a 6-pole to 6-pole connector so if you wanted a 7-way to 6-way then I recommend going with the # RM-15267 so that you can get the diode wiring for the Wrangler and the adapter cable all in one. You'll want to test the functions of each wire for the 7-way socket on the rear of your motorhome to know which way it was wired, but I've gone ahead and attached a diagram below of standard 7-pole wiring and 6-pole wiring....
