The installation was easy and so far after a year of use and outdoor storage, the wire and connector are holding up great. Installed on a 2018 Rockwood 2906WS camper trailer.

Very happy with the product quality. Very pleased with etrailer.




by:

Been very happy with the 90 degree wiring harness over the past year. It saved running the 7 pin connector over the tailgate. Replacing the 7 pin connector with new Junction box helped in cleaning up the mess in the old box. The new 7 pin wiring harness is lighter & more flexible. All 3 products are still working well and have saved me time & functionality.




by:

I installed this Hopkins connector cable on my 2003 Jayco 12 Sd popup camper because I replaced hydraulic brakes on it with the electric brakes. Needed some extra wires. Four were not enough to operate the lights and electric brakes. Installation was quick. I had to match wires on the trailer with cable wires. Cable looks great and so far it works great. We just checked out on our first camping trip this year.




by:

My wire harness was easy to install, looked great and performed great. One year later and it still looks and performs great! I definitely recommend to anyone building their own trailer or are looking to upgrade to better wiring! My homemade trailer was a great success, thanks to etrailer.com!




by:

Bulletproof. I will order this again for future projects.




by:

Order took a long time to arrive but was exactly what we ordered when it did get here. I understand the challenge is a shortage of labor at the distribution center.




by:

Needed a new pigtail due to a short in my cable from wear. Spliced it in with the 7pin junction box and back on the road.




by:

I was a little worried about this 7 wire cable because the price was quite a bit lower that the other products. But I was totally wrong about it. This is a very high quality and heavy duty product.I will buy another one for my Dad's cargo trailer.




by:

Exact replacement for my 2018 Keystone Springdale. Good purchase- I carry a spare, seems like these cords only get damaged after dark!




by:

Nice heavy duty. The cable jacket does shrink back from the plug a bit over time. I wish they were available with the other 7-way color scheme.




by:

only negative is nothing to say what wire goes to what function. basically no diagram sheet but that is easily found Info




by:

I am replacing the trailer connection wiring harness as part of the brake system. My 5th wheel trailer is now 10 years old so this is a preventive maintenance step in the process. Hopefully with new wheel/brake parts my trailer brakes will work better.
Thanks ETrailer.com and Rebecca for great support.




by:

Could not get any easier to install, the wires were color coded as the wires on my enclosed car trailer




by:

Are use the wiring harness to add brake lights turn signals and back up lights and running lights to my bicycle carrier I’ve added to my recreational vehicle

I had also purchased the combo light package from the trailer and it’s really nice to know vehicles behind me know what I’m doing when I’m turning stopping and it’s really great to see the extra light when I back up at night


Comments
The back up tail light system that I purchased from Arkins as been working out well staying waterproof and I enjoy the additional back up lighting when pulling the RV into a dark campsite
Paul A - 06/04/2021


by:

Pros: Best wire gauge in a 7 pin connector I could find.

Cons: reverse lights (red), left turn (yellow), right turn (green), and running light (brown) and not wired correctly in the plug for their respective wire colors.

I bought this for a sealed plug with good gauge wire to help save some time. What I got was a total headache trying to find out the problem of why it was not working correctly. This might not have been so bad had it not been on a new to me truck that I was not so trusting of the wiring in it. So I wound up looking at the truck first not thinking the plug would be wired incorrectly.

Be warned.




by:

Just what I needed as a replacement cord




by:

Had some real issues with this one. Should have noticed when purchasing this harness is not wired using standard truck/trailer color format. Other than that it went together fairly nice. If the connector would come apart I was thinking of fixing the wiring my self.




by:

I recently ordered this power cord for my travel trailer as my original cord became corroded and difficult to engage into the tow vehicle plug. It is not hard to tell the replacement cord is far superior to the original, fit and finish is great and slides into the receptacle with ease. Installation was a no-brainer, took me about an hour. When I originally ordered the cord, I ordered a cord 1 foot shorter than the original. I gave etrailer (Rebecca) a quick call and she cancelled the original order and got me the cord I needed with no delay -- Thank you Rebecca.


Comments
Still works great.

Thanks for your help with parts for my trailer build. My wife and I are still making custom cabinets out of curly maple. We hope to finish this winter. We have taken it out 7 times this season. Thanks again.




by:

Received the connector and attached wiring harness in a timely manner. Product was just as described and of very good quality. Will be an easy replacement for my old weathered car trailer connector.




by:

Part of brake wiring assembly. I followed etrailer's wiring diagram.




by:

Received it today and I have it installed. Easy to install and very satisfied with your product. Thank you




by:

Great quality on this overmolded harness. Various/appropriate AWG wires for each pin. Looks like it w/last a long time.




by:

Well made!




by:

This trailer was built from scratch using only the metal frame. I purchased some items from etrailer an was very satisfied with the products.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Lights Get Brighter on One Side and Marker Lights Come on with Brake Lights
    Checking the grounds was a good place to start. I think that it still may be a ground issue. There are several things you can check to determine if it is a ground problem. I would start with the trailer side connector and check for any dirt or corrosion and clean it out. Dirt and corrosion could cause a bad connection or a short which would lead to undesired results. Next, I would check the ground coming out of the back of the trailer connector. It should be connected to a clean and corrosion-free...

  • How to Wire a Hopkins 7-Way Trailer Connector # H20046 1987 Layton RV Trailer
    There are standard colors for trailer wiring, but not everyone will follow those guidelines and since your trailer is older it is likely that the colors are different. The best way to wire up your trailer with this 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20046 would be to test all the functions of the wiring on your trailer and then wire the # H20046 to it by function. I attached a review video for this product and an FAQ on trailer wiring for you to check out. I also attached a picture...

  • How To Wire In a 7-way to Replace a Boat Trailer 5-Way Flat
    You definitely could install the 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20046 in place of the 5-way that is installed on your trailer currently. The colors wouldn't match up exactly. White would go to white, you would run both brown wires to the single green wire of the 7-way. Yellow of your trailer would go to the red wire of the 7-way, and green of the trailer wiring would go to brown of the 7-way. Now without knowing where the red wires of the 5-way go it's hard to say for certain....

  • Which Replacement Hub/Drums and Brake Assemblies Needed for 1985 Monarch Horse Trailer
    As a first step, you'd want to determine the reference numbers from the inner and outer wheel bearings and the wheel bolt pattern used by your current hub/drums. If the reference numbers aren't readable, you'd need to use a digital caliper on the surfaces of the spindle where the inner and outer bearing and the grease seal ride. With this information, I can recommend a replacement drum. To recommend replacement brake assemblies, I'd need to know the inside diameter and depth of your brake drums.

  • How to Protect Trailer End Connector From the Weather
    I looked through our product offerings and was honestly surprised when I saw we didn't offer a cover for a trailer connector. Since the tape didn't work for you, have you considered using some of that Press'n Seal plastic wrap? You could use a piece to cover the connector, and secure the wrap with the duct tape. That way, any tape residue would remain on the wrap and not the connector itself.

  • How to Test the Functions of Trailer Tail Light Circuits
    The easiest way to test the functions of the taillight wiring on a trailer is to use a jumper wire. You will touch one end of the jumper wire to the positive post of a 12 volt vehicle battery and then touch the other end of the wire to all of the different wires to see what circuits illuminate. The other option would be to trace the wires back to see where they terminate.

  • Replacing Damaged 7-Way on Horse Trailer
    There's more than one accepted way to wire a 7-way, but the most common uses the green wire for right turn/brake, yellow wire for left turn/brake, brown for running lamps, blue for brake output black for 12-volt accessory power to the trailer, white for ground and purple for the reverse light circuit. Because wire colors can vary so greatly, we typically tell folks to wire by function, not by color. An alternative color code is yellow wire for auxiliary or reverse lights, green for running...

  • Mounting Two Trailer Stop, Turn and Marker Lights on Each Side of a Trailer
    If you are using two stop/turn/marker lights on each side of the trailer, the only signal you will be able to separate out is the taillight signal. Trailers in the United States use a combined stop and turn signal so you would not be able to separate them to wire one light turn and marker and the other light brake and marker or brake turn and marker. You would essentially have two options. One light on each side stop/turn/tail and the other taillight only, or one light stop/turn only and...

  • What is the outer Diameter of the Cable on 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector, # H20046
    I went out to the warehouse and grabbed a 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20046 to measure it for you. I used a set of digital calipers to get an accurate measurement. The diameter of the outer black sheath is 0.59 inches or 19/32 of an inch. A hole 5/8 of an inch would be perfect for this size cable. I have included a link to a video review of this connector for you.

  • What is the Function of the Yellow/Brown Wire on a Trailer
    Your yellow/brown wire most likely ties into the brown running light wire. Typically, when a trailer has a green/brown wire and a yellow/brown wire, they are both used for the running light circuit. The green/brown wire is ran down the right side of the trailer and the yellow/brown wire is ran down the left side of the trailer for the tail lights and marker lights. This prevents the need from running jumper wires across the trailer for the running lights. If your trailer is setup this way,...

  • Should 12 Volt Power from a Trailer Battery to Interior Lights be Circuit Protected
    Having a fuse or circuit breaker in line to the interior light wiring or any 12 volt accessory is not going to hurt anything and would add extra protection to other electrical items on the trailer and vehicle. You will just want to avoid using a fuse or circuit breaker that is rated way higher than what the accessory actually draws. For example if the interior lights draw 10 amps you would not use a 20 amp fuse because in a short circuit situation the fuse would not blow to protect the...

    I attached a chart that details how the # H20046 would wire to your trailer's wiring. You will notice that the wire color column on the far right says "usual," this means the color codes are always specific. On your 5-way the jacketed circuit will be the ground circuit, the circuit next to that should be the running lights circuit, next to that should be the left turn/stop circuit, next to that the right turn/stop circuit, and finally the reverse light circuit, or sometimes brake output.

If you check out the chart I attached you will see the three ways (really only 2), that a 7-way can be wired. The Featherlite is wired up like the diagram on the left. Now to wire up the # H20046 all you would need to do is wire up the connector by FUNCTION and not color. If your trailer has the same wire colors as the diagram you attached the blue wires would match up, the brown of the trailer...

  • Will Trailer Lighting Circuit Still Work with 7-Way if Brake Controller isn't Used
    Yes, the lighting functions of a trailer 7-way will be fully functional regardless of if a brake controller is installed/functional. The circuits are totally separate. There are many people who use 7-way trailer wiring setups without a brake controller and lighting all works fine.

  • How to Test to Determine Unknown Wire Color Functions of Trailer Wiring
    Orange and gray are not standard trailer wiring colors so you'll need to do some testing to verify what those circuits carry. What you'll need to do is use a jumper wire from the positive pin of a 12 volt car battery to apply voltage to all of the wires to see which trailer circuits apply. The one that sparks when the connection is touched is the ground. For a new 7-way though we have the # H20046 which I attached a chart that shows how this gets wired as well by color.

  • Are 7-Way Trailer Harnesses Installed without Being Fully Functional
    I wouldn't say that's standard practice. There are many times though that people will install a 7-way and will only activate the circuits that are needed and leave off ones that aren't. If the trailer doesn't have brakes they'll leave that circuit open or if there's no need for a 12 volt accessory or reverse light circuit. If your trailer has brakes and they knew you wanted to install a 7-way to activate them I'd say they aren't being totally honest if they only wired up the lights.

    Your 4-way colors are standard so the white is ground, yellow is left turn/stop, green is right turn/stop, and the two brown wires are for the running lights. Since running lights are on both sides of the trailer they gave you two wires for each side. You can run the wires together and run them to the running light pin of a 7-way which is the 11:00 pin. I attached a diagram for a 7-way for you to use as well.
