Video Transcript for Hopkins Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - HM42190 Review

Today we're going to review part number HM42190. This is the Hopkins Endurance quick install 7-way trailer connector. This kit will allow you to add a 7-way RV style trailer connector to your vehicle that has a factory tow package. This part number is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and some Mercedes Benz vehicles starting in 2000 that have the factory to 7-way connector. What I would recommend is go to our website and on our fit guide you can put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you the exact years and models that this will fit on. This is a 7-way blade RV style trailer connector for your vehicle with the factory tow package.

It is a plug-in simple installation, there is no cutting or splicing of wires. The wiring harness plugs in to your factory wire port at the rear of the vehicle and then the 7-way will plug right in to here. Oops, turn it around, just like that. That will be plugged in to your factory wiring harness. The lid on this will open 180 degrees you can see for easy connection.

This lid also helps keep out any dirt and moisture from getting to the terminals. It has enhanced weather proofing with internal seals right up in here and corrosion resistant terminals. Extremely durable ABS plastic construction, it has a nice oversize lid hinge. It comes with the mounting screws to mount this to a bracket and a package of dialectic grease which we recommend to put on the terminals when you do your connections, also on this right here. That should do it for the review of part number HM42190, the Hopkins Endurance quick install 7-way trailer connector. .

I purchased this to restore the 7-way recreational trailer connector on my Dodge 2500. The previous owner had cut off the factory connector box and connector. This connector plugged in directly to the truck's tow-package electrical cable connection, providing a quick and simple fix. Works great!

I received a Hopkins 50002 Smart Hitch Backup Camera System for Fathers Day but my 2006 dodge diesel had the old square style 7-way connector. I did not want to splice into my wires unless I had no choice. I had recently bought some awesome new tail lights for my boat trailer from etrailer and I thought maybe I could find something there that would make this hook up possible without splicing into my wires. I'm certainly glad I did because they had the new style 7-way connector, just what I needed. I ordered it, installed it along with the camera system and life was great. No splicing wires! Thank you etrailer for making this Fathers Day gift a breeze to install.

Quality of construction appears good. There were no fasteners in the package. Main concern is that the pigtail adapter, necessary to adapt the OEM-specific harness to the "generic" outlet, was a little bigger/longer than I'd like. However, this is easy to live with considering the OEM part cost 3X as much! Haven't had the time to see if the wiring pattern for the trailer lighting is correct.


Comments
It works fine but you have to watch out that you dont snag the pigtail adapter wire as you put the hitch into the receiver or hook up the safety chains.

I received the Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector pretty quick. I had ordered one through another source, but had to return it because it was the wrong one. Then I searched on google and found etrailer.com. After a little bit of searching on their site, I found this connector. They had great pictures and they were accurately-sized so I could see that the attachment holes to the frame of my 2005 Fleetwood Discovery RV would line up exactly. It matched up perfectly and installed in just a few minutes. The package was missing one nut, but that was no big deal as I quickly found a replacement.

Great. Better than the original.

I purchased this as a replacement for the damaged one on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500. While this connector costs more than a generic one, being plug and play more than makes up for the added cost by eliminating the need to splice into factory wiring. The connector plugged directly into the factory harness and was a perfect fit in the original location.

It is not a plug and play type connector. There is extra wiring and this does not fit my Jeep Wrangler.

This particular trailer connector is a fit for Jeep Wrangler Unlimited models equipped with the factory tow package only. If it doesnt have the tow package, youd need to use part # 118416
T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector
$23.94
and then an adapter like # 37185
Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole
$52.76
to convert it to a 7-way. If the trailer has brakes, youll want to install a brake controller using the # ETBC7

$114.95
brake controller install kit.

Appears to be high quality components and materials. Included almost everything necessary, including grease to seal the connections. Liked the hex recess for the screw heads molded into the receptacle body. Would have been nice to include Nyloc nuts - Was concerned about tightening the screws enough to make the lock washers work while not damaging the plastic. Used Locktite instead.

The seven pole trailer connector is junk and sloppy first day I used it my boat plug fell out and drug the trailer plug down the road. So I put a new end on the boat and again it came on hooked!

My 2001 Dodge Ram had the wrong plug installed and the connecting plugs from the lights from the factory and the wrong plug didn't match. Went to etrailer.com, searched for my truck, and this plug came up. Ordered it. Received it. Installed it with no issues. The connecting plugs went together easily. Tested it with the trailer and all lights work!!! Thanks etrailer!

This product its awesome !!! After a silly mistake on my end I broke the OEM Connector on my 13' Mercedes GL450, called the dealer and was told the connector doesn't sell individual and I had to order the Towing Kit (Over $900 !!!) decided to take my chances on aftermarket products. Began by ordering part# PK11893-11933 from etrailer.com only to discover that the mentioned part worked fine but it didn't fit properly on the OEM Bracket (You had to drill new holes) when taking the plug out to disconnect it I broke the pin so sadly I couldn't sent it back for a refund. Still, I was determinate to find a perfect fit, so I ordered this part from etrailer.com and this time I got it right. The part fit perfectly and you can even use the stock screws, also the part its rugged and you can tell its a great quality product. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks etrailer.com

This part was almost a 100% direct replacement from the original. The screws which held the old connector to the truck's housing were self threading. For this item, those screws wouldn't work because the heads were too small. Instead, I had to drill new holes in the metal bracket to accommodate the new screws/nuts which came with this kit. This was not really a big deal, and when done, worked better then the originals. The wire connector worked perfectly. Very very satisfied.

    I have exactly what you need to install a 7-way trailer connector on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

What happens is that if a ground connection is not 100-percent solid and with bare-metal-to-bare-metal contact the weak ground will allow some lower-power signals to pass (stop and turn lights that don't draw as much current) but won't let the higher-current always-on taillights function.
