Video Transcript for Review of Optronics Trailer Wiring - 7 Way Round RV Style Trailer Connector To Blade - A7WCB

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a real quick look at this seven-way round RV style trailer connector. This seven-way round plug is going to let you connect your trailer to your seven-way round blade connector of your tow vehicle. And this features a durable ABS plastic housing and the interlock system is going to lock in place to keep your connection secure. The oversized finger tabs are going to allow you to easily grip the plug during disconnections.

And I wanted to point out a few things here. On this end, on this side here of this connector, we have these two set screws that's going to loosen and tighten this insert. So when you begin to run your wires through this connector, you obviously want to loosen these screws up and that's going to allow that insert to move out of the way. So then you can begin to run your wires through there and then you can just tighten these two screws back up and that will in turn tighten up that insert and that's going to close, that's going to close up against the wires that you run through here, giving you a nice, tight, secure fit. So that's going to keep out dust and moisture out of those connection points.

And then I wanted to point out this other screw that we have here on the other end on top, that's going to allow this connection point to actually come out of the housing. So you're gonna run your wires through, get this portion out and make your connections and then put it back into the housing and then tighten the screw. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy.

Thank you for joining me.

I was expecting blade connectors as shown in the pictures and video and that is the main reason I purchased this item. Instead it had screw connectors.

Thanks for letting us know! I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this.

It would have been very helpful if the item description would have stated that the trailer connector was equipped with "Spade Contacts" and require Spade Connectors, and/or illustrate this in a picture, and provide those connector as part of the package. It would have saved a lot of time in making a second order to acquire the Spade Connectors.



by:

I was hoping for the terminal blade connectors, like the video shows, instead of the screw type connectors that I got. The blade connectors seem to be more reliable. Still, it's a quality plug, it's installed and it works. Thank you.



by:

Perfect fit to change our trailer from a 5 pin to a 7 pin with added capabilities. we are long time etrailer customer and they always ship fast and have affordable prices to suit our needs.

Perfect fit. Easy to use. Great product. Using this to help trickle charge a battery for the trailer winch.

by:

Used this as a plug for my portable 12V air compressor to facilitate access to power, rather than clips to battery. As usual, over the past several years etrailer is my go-to store for all trailer & towing needs. Excellent variety, price and prompt service. Keep up the good work..............

We installed the lights on a trailer we were selling. Installation went smooth, lights worked great.We install the trailer plug on a 12V compressor so we could power it from our trailer hook up and it works great also. You are our go-to trailer supply store.



by:

Wired it in and it works. Not much more to say. Works on my buddy's 2006 F-150 and on my 2003 Dodge Neon (yeah...you heard that right) and also on my 2016 Sierra Denali.



by:

Had to replace a 7 pin on an RV that got sheered by previous owner. The video on how to replace and the part made it very easy to change the connector. Saved a bundle doing it ourselves.

Still going strong



by:

Good replacement for existing cable.



by:

I was not expecting a flat spaded wire connection on the inside,



by:

Once again etrailer came through for me with a quality replacement 7 pin connector plug. The installation was easy and the instruction videos were just what I needed to complete the task without unexpected problems. I had read other reviews saying the RV trailer wire colors did not match the pin color on the plug. My replacement plug pin colors matched exactly with the wiring colors on my RV.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Charge Line Wiring Provision on 2018 Silverado 3500
    I would first begin by checking the engine compartment fuse box to ensure the fuse is installed and in working condition. These fuse/relays are sometimes left out depending on what packages are installed in the truck. For your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD it should be the #2 fuse but be sure to confirm that with your owners manual. Also form the owners manual "the auxiliary battery provision can be used to supply electrical power to additional equipment that may be added, such as a slide-in...

  • Wiring Diagram to Replace HD 7-Way with Standard Blade 7-Way
    It would be nice if trailer wiring always used the same colors to make replacing connectors super easy but a good portion of the time the wire colors are just whatever was most convenient at the time. So what I would recommend you do is wire by function instead using the diagram I attached as a guide.

  • Wire and Function In A 7-Way Connector To Allow Brakes To Release When Backing Up A Boat Trailer
    The fifth wire that allows you to back up a boat trailer is the reverse function. Sending signal from the reverse function will allow the solenoid to disengage the surge brake function electrically. The reverse function is found in the center of the 7-way connector. I've attached a diagram to help.

  • How to Wire a Replacement 7-Way for a Gooseneck Trailer
    7-Way connectors like the # A7WCB that you referenced should be wired by function and not color. Since trailer manufacturers can sometimes use non-standard color wires for the taillight functions of their trailer it is best just to determine the function of each wire from your trailer's wiring and then wire it by function to the 7-way you end up getting. What you can do to determine the function of each wire is use a 12 volt battery like a car battery and run a jumper wire from the positive...

  • Does 12 Volt Accessory Circuit of 7-Way Charge Camper Battery

  • 7-Way Plug Recommendation for Replacing 4-Way of Hitch Light Fixture

  • What Is Most Common Reason Trailer Brake Controller Stops Working
    A brake controller not wanting to function can be for a few reasons. But most of the time it's just a dirty pin on the trailer wiring connectors.

  • Does 12V Pin on 7-way Trailer Connector Always Have Power
    It sounds like you're asking about the 12V circuit on the 7-way trailer connector on the rear of your 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Some vehicles will always have power and some others will not. We don't have this specific information for your vehicle, but to determine if your 12V always has power you can test the pin in the 1 O'clock position on your 7-way. The other pins will have power when the corresponding light is used or the brake pedal is pressed.

  • Trailer Left Side Brake, Turn Signal, and Running Lights Not Working
    Since everything is working on the truck side the issue must be on the trailer side. I have included a picture that shows the pin functions of both a vehicle and trailer side 7-Way. You will need to check the configuration on the trailer side to determine if it matches up to what the truck side has. In the pictures though you have to ignore the colors and focus only on the functions. On the vehicle side if you are looking at the pins the left turn signal and brake lights are in the 9 o'clock...

    The problem that you are going to run into no matter what 7-Way you want to put on your trailer is that the color of the wires used is not standardized. Trailer manufacturers or people who rewire their trailers at any point can use any color they have laying around. You have to go by function, and then follow our wiring FAQ diagrams which I have linked for you. The colors that we mention are the most used but are by no means definitive. If your old 7-Way is still attached you can just...

  • No Power To Trailer Running Light Pin on a Ford F-150
    If you don't have any power to the running light pin on the trailer connector on your Ford F-150 then most likely you just have a blown fuse. If you check in your owner's manual or on the underside of the engine bay fuse box lid that should then tell you which fuse to check. If the fuse is good then the next thing you will want to do is start tracing as much of the wire back as possible while checking for breaks.

  • Solution for Connecting Trailer with 4-Way Round to 7-Way
    Since there isn't an adapter available to convert the 4-way to a 7-way your best option would be to cut off the 4-way and wire it to a 7-way connector like part # A7WCB. This way your trailer will not require an adapter and everything would work.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Charge Line Circuit and Brake Controller No Longer Receive Power
    It sounds like you have an issue with the battery connections for both the brake controller and the charge line on your 7-way circuit. When the shop installed the 7-way on your vehicle and brake controller they would have installed some type of fuse system to protect the wiring from becoming damaged due to excessive draw. If your 7-way is on a vehicle that does not have any factory wiring these fuses or circuit breakers will be inline of the wiring that was installed. You will need to find...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Running Light Circuit that Gets Hot
    If a trailer wiring circuit is getting hot that means it's either over drawing or there's a short on the circuit. Since this is the trailer wiring circuit and you've already tried cleaning up the wiring it's most likely that the circuit is trying to draw more than it can provide. One way to reduce the load on the circuit is to convert some of the taillights to LED which only draw a fraction of the amperage as incandescent bulbs. I attached a link to a page that has all of the trailer...

  • How to Determine the Functions of Trailer Wires to Install a New 7-Way Connector
    The easiest way of determining the functions of the wires on your trailer is to apply power to each one individually using a separate 12 volt battery and see what lights up. Then all you have to do is label the wires and attach them to a trailer side 7-Way such as # A7WCB. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. Since there is no standard for wire color and function the wires will have to be tested to determine the functions.

    It is hard to say exactly how much of the black wire insulation was cut off of the 7-Way Round RV Style Trailer Connector # A7WCB, but after watching the video and having done this myself before, it looks like Rick cut off about 2 inches of the black portion and then about 3/8 of an inch of insulation per wire.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Controller That Doesn't Show Trailer Connection
    Sounds like you have some corrosion on your trailer wiring connector which is preventing your controller from sensing a trailer connection and being able to activate the trailer brakes. This is a very common problem and all you typically have to do is take some sandpaper to the pins on the trailer connector and you'll get a solid enough connection for the controller to start working again. I also attached a help article on brake controller troubleshooting for you to check out as well.

  • Why Would New Self-Adjusting Trailer Brakes Seem Weak
    We find that at times the self-adjusting brakes need to be "manually" adjusted the first time when they are installed. You can do this by going to a parking lot with the trailer attached. Then drive the trailer in an empty parking lot and apply the brake a number of times to get the proper adjustment. Each time you apply the brakes with either the pedal or the manual override lever the adjustment wheel will click tighter.
