Video Transcript for Wesbar 7-Way RV to 4-Way or 5-Way Flat Coiled Adapter Review

Today we'll be having a look at the Wesbar Coiled Adapter 7-Way RV to 4-Way or 5-Way Flat. It's 8 feet long. It's part number 787196. All right, here we are. Right now we're going to use our Wesbar 7-Way to a 5-Way adapter to hook up our electrical connection between our RV and our towed vehicle here. The key feature of this unit is that it adapts from a 7-Way RV connector, like we have on the back of our RV.

Down to either a 4-Way or a 5-Way flat. This will give us our turn signals, our break lights, our tail lights, and even our reverse function, which is very handy because we can also use this adapter for towing boat trailers. A lot of boat trailers have reverse lockout solenoid and need that reverse output signal to engage that solenoid so you can safely backup your boat trailer. We have these nice finger holds here to pull back on when we're ready to remove it. It gives us something extra to grip on so you don't have to pull it by the wire itself, which could cause damage. This will plug into the 4-Flat on the front of our towed vehicle here.

Now as you can see, our coiled cable here will stretch to a maximum of 8 feet in length. Now even though this cable, when it's not hooked up to anything, retracts back to a very small manner, we don't have to worry about the tension. Some of our customers have expressed concern about that, but as we found out, the tension's not strong enough to separate your connection. Our wire is coated in this durable yellow marine-grade coating giving us an ideal umbilical to use for our marine applications, for our boat trailers, or for being out in the elements, or flat towing behind our RV. The environmentally sealed 16 gauge coiled wire will prevent tangling and prevent shorts from happening inside the wire if the wires we're to break and rub together. That completes our look at the Wesbar Coiled Adapter 7-Way RV to 4-Way or 5-Way Flat that's 8 feet long.

Part number 787196.

Wesbar Coiled Adapter - 7-Way RV to 4-Way or 5-Way flat - 8' Long - 787196

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (45 Customer Reviews)

This adapter with coiled cord stretches 8' so you can connect your 7-way, RV-style, vehicle-end connector to a 4-way or 5-way flat connector on your towed vehicle or trailer.

Though this product is quality made, it will not fit a 4 pin flat even though it says it will fit a 4 or a 5 way flat. There is no way it will fit the 4 way with the divider in the plug. 581443

by:

I was afraid the 8 foot would be to long. But the coils are tight so it does not sag. It fits perfect. The 5 pin works just as well with a 4 pin plug. It is pictured the exact same as what I received. The cord insulation is very tough, and thick. I am very happy. 561787

Works great still has tight coils no sagging. Insulation still bright and tough

item was as described. nice quality. 733522

by:

This item was inexpensive but also made a huge difference in my installation for my 4 wheel down tow behind. I used the 5th connection as a power source (instead of the usual use for backup lights -or backup lock out solenoid- think hydraulic activated boat trailer brakes) to instead recharge my battery while my RV is running, having repositioning my 7 pin line on RV to match the fifth pin. However the benefit is I could eliminate the corrresponding ugly plug normally associated seen in the front grill of the towed car. In my case I used a 5 pin harness located under the hood that would remain unseen when unused but simply flipped out from under the closed hood when used. Outstanding application. coil is resilient after yr+ of use and adequate length for RV to car with typical draw bar distance to cover. Buy again, recommend, YES. 698209

This is a cheaper option. This connector never really “plugged” in easily, and was not as flexible as I had expected it to be. It worked, but really wasn’t high quality. After 3-4 trips I spent the $100.00 bucks and bought a top brand. No comparison... 610343

Ask the Experts about this Wesbar Accessories and Parts

  • Function of Fifth Pin on Wesbar Coiled 7-Way to 5-Way Adapter
    The Wesbar Coiled Adapter # 787196 can be used as a 4-way or 5-way trailer connector. It's commonly used as a 4-way umbilical when flat towing a vehicle and the fifth pin isn't used. The fifth pin on the 5-way is the same circuit as the center pin on the 7-way, which is generally the backup light circuit but could be wired with something different if you so choose.

  • Recommended Coiled Adapter To Connect 7-Way Round On Motorhome To 4-Way On 2014 Jeep
    We do have the coiled adapter you need. It is the Wesbar Coiled Adapter, part # 787196. This adapter will connect to the 7-way on your motorhome and you can plug the 4-way flat connector on the front of your Jeep into the other end. This coiled adapter is 8 ft long, which should be plenty for you.

  • Tow Bar Lighting Recommendation for 2012 Jeep Wrangler
    The easiest solution for tow bar wiring that fits your 2012 Jeep Wrangler is the plug and play Hopkins kit part # HM56200 which installs easily by plugging inline with the taillight connectors of your vehicle and then gives you a 4-way connector you'll route to the front of the vehicle. No wire splicing or light socket cutting required unlike other options. I attached an install video that will walk you through the install process for you to check out as well. It also would work just fine...

  • Will Wesbar Coiled Adapter 787196 work with 4-Way
    Since your truck has a 4-way and your trailer a 7-way you actually would want the part # 37185 as the 4-way of the # 787196 is the wrong side for a truck.

  • Recommended 7-Way to 5-Way Wiring Harness Adapter
    If you already have a 7-Way connection at the rear of your 2017 Toyota 4Runner then all you will need is an adapter. Webar has a Coiled Adapter for 7-Way to 4-Way or 5-Way Flat, part # 787196, which will provide power to the tail and running lights, left turn and stop, ground, right turn and stop, and reverse light functions on your trailer. I have attached a link to one of our helpful articles that demonstrates this. This adapter will work great for you as long as the 5th signal...

  • Wiring Adapter Recommendation to go From RV 7-Way to Toad 4-Way for Lighting
    Sounds like you are asking how to hook up the magnetic tow bar wiring you have to your RV that has a 7-way flat RV connector. Your RV having separate turn signals from stoplights will not be an issue. The 7-way on your RV will already have the turn signal circuits converted to combined so that it matches your tow bar wiring. If you have a 7-way flat connector on your tow vehicle you would want the part # 787196. If your lights have a 4-way round you would need part # HM47043 instead.

  • Car Hauler trailer Wiring
    For you to retain the functions of the electric brakes on your car hauler trailer you will need to use a connector that will carry the power for all of the functions from the vehicle. For what you are doing you would be better off using a 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20046 since it has all 7 circuits and the brake output circuit wire has 12 gauge wire. I have attached a video that shows how to replace the 7-pole connector you can check out.

  • 4-Way Flat to 7-Way Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation

    Since your RV already has a 7-Way connector, the Wesbar Coiled Adapter-7-Way to 4-Way or 5-Way Flat, Item # 787196, will work if your 2002 Jeep TJ is already wired for flat towing. If your Jeep is not yet wired for flat towing then I recommend the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, Item # RM-154, which will have everything you need to connect your Jeep's tail lights and wiring systems to your RV system while preventing feedback from your RV. You may already have these...

  • Replacement 4-Way Connector that Will Plug into 4-Way of 787196

  • Usable Length of Wesbar 787196 7-way to 5-Pole Flat Wiring Adapter Cable
    The Wesbar Coiled 7-Way Adapter # 787196 measures about 11-inches long when not stretched, and 8-feet at absolute maximum. A comfortable length range for using this wiring item is 3 to 4 feet, which will avoid putting lots of tension on it. Keep in mind also that the cable is going to loosen up a little as you use it. It will naturally be more inclined to stretch in warmer weather than in cold.

  • Does Wesbar Adapter Coiled 787196 Work with TrailerMate Tow Bar Harness TM781124

  • What is the Wire Gauge Used in the Coiled Adapter - 7-Way Flat Pin Blade to 5-Flat # 787196
    A coiled cable would have to be a bit thinner in order to efficiently coil and also not be bulky and heavy. But the outer cable is not as important as the wires on the inside. In this adapter, # 787196, the wires are 16 gauge. This is very common for trailer wiring accessories. Wesbar does make a good product so I think you will like this adapter.

  • 7-Way Plug and Lead Recommendation for a Trailer
    The Coiled Adapter # 787196 has 5 wires that run through it. A ground wire, a running light wire, a left stop/turn wire, a right stop/turn wire, and an auxiliary wire usually run to the reverse light circuit of a vehicle. For what you are doing you would be better off using a 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20046 since it has all 7 circuits and the brake output circuit wire has 12 gauge wire instead of the 16 gauge wire of the # 78716 which would not be sufficient.

This harness easily plugs into your vehicle's existing wiring, located behind your Jeep's tail light assemblies. No cutting, tapping, or splicing is required.

    If you wanted to use the Tow Ready Tail Light Isolating Diode System with 4-Pole Connector part # TR118821 with a 7-way trailer connector on the motorhome you'd need an adapter. If you wanted to also upgrade the umbilical that goes between the motorhome and toad you can use the Wesbar Coiled Adapter part # 787196 which also doubles as the adapter. The Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat part # 18144 can then be used to secure the 4-way on the Tow Ready harness.

    Does your 4WD option give you the option for a 4 high and a 4 low? If so then you have a 2 speed transfer unit.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle.

  • Tow Bar Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2016 Jeep JK Unlimited Rubicon
    I have a great solution for you but the Trailermate harness part # TM781124 does not carry over to the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Instead the Hopkins kit part # HM56200 is a fit and would be the better option. I attached an install video for this kit on a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited like what you have as well. The part # 787196 will go from a 7-way to a 4-way like you said you needed as well. It's coiled so it's easy to wrap around the arms of your tow bar.

  • Availability of Tow Bar Umbilical Style Adapter to Go From 4-Way Flat to 7-Way Blade
    Yes, for a tow bar umbilical extension adapter to go between the 4-way flat of the part # HM56304 and a 7-way socket you'd want the Wesbar adapter part # 787196. This has a 5-way flat on one end and a 7-way blade connector on other. The difference between a 5-way and a 4-way is just the extra pin on the outside of the connector. This pin would simply be left off when used with a 4-way. I attached a link to a video for this adapter that shows it in use for you to check out as well.
