Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring - Trailer Connectors - 48195 Review

Today, we're going to review part number 48195, this is the Hopkins quick fix four way flat car and trailer ends. This part comes with everything shown here. This allows you to replace a damaged four wire flat on your wiring harness. When you connect it, there is no external splices. It includes both the vehicle side and the trailer side connector. It is designed to use 14 gauge, up to 16 gauge wire. Basically, it also comes with a nice package of terminal grease so when you make your connections, you put some grease one it, it will help maintain those connections and protect them.

Basically, what you do, like in this case, this would be the trailer side. You'll see you just cut off your old four way, have the wires separate. Each, they do have the markings for ground, tail light, left turn, right turn, so it helps you out. Just run your wire in there. Once you've got all your wires in there, you just take this cap, the cap would go right in there, and then all you do is just push down. I don't want to do that because it does lock in place, but you push down all the way and it would secure your wires and you have a new four way connection point.

Same way on the vehicle end and it also is marked also. That should do it for the review on part number 48195. This is the Hopkins quick fix four way flat car and trailer ends. .

Nice product; works well 395251

It worked eventually. I only needed to replace the trailer plug. My trailer has five wires (two brown), so I had to tap one brown off the other to get it to work. Also, I could not get my left side trailer lights to work. After taking everything apart and pulling out my tester and the bulbs etc, I figured out the "Quick Fix" had not cut the jacket on the yellow wire but had only squeezed it. I had to help it along. It is all working now but I wouldn't say it was a quick fix. 287067

Product works but design is questionable. Once the locking tab is inserted, there is no way to reopen without the tab breaking. Same product from another manufacturer has folding tab secured by screws and can be reopened if there is a problem. That model also has LEDs to indicate if connection is working properly. 385210

Wires easily pulled out of plug. Should solder them in. On the other hand this is the first time I had a bad experience with this great company after many purchases. I will buy from them again. 581478


Comments
This piece is best used as a temporary fix, thus the name quick fix

Necessary item for your on the road spare parts kit, these install quickly to restore connections to lighting that is intermittent or non functional. Your safety and the safety of others depends on your lighting. In the rust belt, connectors have a short life due to salt and de-icers that are applied to the roads. These are a quick fix. If filled with dielectric grease during install they have a good service life. 778430

I am a model railroader using the solderless flat 4-wire connectors to make wiring harnesses for G-gauge model railroad modules with 3 tracks. The connectors make it easy to customize the wire lengths from end to end of each module. I did make a mistake and order just one side of the connectors instead of the pair that has both trailer and vehicle ends and called customer service where I received excellent help from Nicole and she made sure the correct parts shipped that day. Thanks Etrailer and Nicole. 682578

Love these connectors---was able to make a trailer wiring harness to the precise length required without excess wiring or using any type of butt connectors to join wires, etc. My only complaint is that these are no longer available in the 5 pin configuration so that I will not be able to connect back-up lights in the future. 663121


Comments
The 4 pin connectors are working great-as previously noted, when will you start offering the 5 pin configuration once again so I can hook up back-up lights??? Surely Im not the only one who has back-up lights on their trailers. I purchased one set from you, but need an additional 2 sets 2 male & 2 female for my other 2 trailers. Please send me a couple 5 pin sets!!!

Easy to install works great what more can you ask for 616953

This product offers an excellent, cost-effective alternative to pre-assembled cables, where the pre-cut lengths are either too long or too short, and 100% watertight is not a requirement. 614314

This finally eliminates having to strip wires on old brittle trailer wire. No trouble installing. 582122

I couldn't use this product and will return it. The collar on the adapter is 5/16" wide, but the slot in my car's bracket is only 1/4" wide. To use this adapter, I would have to trim the plastic collar back, or let the wiring dangle off the back of my car. The connector also does not include a dust cap. 571530

just what I needed. 552580



- 48195
by:

The flat-4 type plug has a tendency to break off the one pin NOT sheathed in plastic on the side where the other three pins are protected by the plastic. These plug ends make repair quick and easy. No wire stripping or electrical tape needed. Just cut off the bad plug, arrange the wires in the same order in the new plug and snap the cover on. DONE in about a minute! 547835

I haven't used, just have for 'break-down" parts if needed. Five stars for etrailer! 523112

Simple, easy, and fast way to create an extension for your existing connector. I needed about 3 additional feet of flat cable to connect my 4Runner to the camper and these connectors worked perfectly. No need for crimp tool and ugly connectors with tape and waterproofing. 500075


Comments
The Hopkins Quick-Fix connector isnt completely watertight, so using some dielectric grease like # 11755
Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, 2 oz.
$14.38
to keep moisture out of the connection.

Had an old extension that was installed by a truck rental company that "U" use to haul with. The harness failed after some years and I cut it off from the old vehicle. The wires were fine but the plugs had failed so I needed new ends. I used these to turn the old wiring harness into a new harness extension to hook my boat trailer up to my new Ford pickup. These 4 flat connections were perfect for the job and the price is great. Additionally, if you have left over vehicle wiring (like I do) from other projects, you can use these ends to make as long an extension as you would ever need. 485615


Comments
These plugs worked flawlessly all last summer on a home-built wiring extension made with vehicle wiring left over from a previous project. A great product, simple to use and well designed for river rats like me.

This quick fix connector was decent. It appears that is wasn’t designed for this gage of wire for the application it was used. It was difficult to get the cover snapped into place with the four wires placed in the plug.. 478799

Keeping contact dry is difficult. Finally filled with contact caulk and now all is well. 466157

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Wiring

  • Does Trailer Wiring 4-Way 48195 Come with Both Connectors
    Yes, the part # 48195 that you referenced comes with both sides of the trailer connectors like what you see in the product pictures. One side for the trailer and the other for the vehicle.

  • Recommended 4-Way Flat Connection For Kayak Trailer And Vehicle
    To fix the 4 way connections you cut off, I recommend the Quick Fix 4 Pole Flat Car and Trailer Ends # 48195. If you want to add the LED test lights so you know your vehicle side is working, you can use the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Fix Replacement 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector w LED Test Lights - Vehicle End # HM48190. The 5th wire on the trailer side will need to be doubled up. This extra wire is a running light duplicate that often is added so a jumper wire is not needed from one side...

  • Would the Connectors of the Quick Fix (TM) 4 Pole Flat Car and Trailer Ends Attach to a 5-Way
    The connectors that come with the part # 48195 are 4-way connectors. A 5-way would mate right up to this connector but the fifth circuit would get dropped off. If you are looking for a replacement set of 5-ways for both your trailer and tow vehicle you would want the part # HM47890.

  • Converting a 3-Way Northland Truck Camper Wiring Harness to a 4-Way Flat
    What you can do is to use the Quick FixTM 4 Pole Flat Car and Trailer Ends, # 48195, and not use one of the pins since you only have three wires that need to be connected. You can then use the wire you need inside of them as needed. The wires that run to the battery are most likely 10 gauge like # 10-1-1. The remaining wire is probably a 16 gauge like # DW02359-1.

  • Wiring Needed to Tow Trailer Behind Trailer with Vehicle that has Second 4-Way Connector
    What you would need to make the adapter you want is 4-way jacketed wire sold by foot part # DW04923-1 (you'd need a quantity of 50) and then a 4-way on either side of that like what the part # 48195 offers and you'd be set. This will allow you to use the second 4-way trailer wiring connector you have at the rear of your vehicle.

  • Converting a 6-Way Rectangle Plug on a Monaco Diplomat to a 4-Way Flat for a Boat Trailer
    The 6-Way square trailer connector is not used by a lot of trailer manufacturers. A lot of Jayco trailers may have them but mostly you come across the 4-Way flat, like what you have on your trailer, and the 7-Way blade for RV applications. What I recommend is to convert the 6-Pole on the Monaco to a 4-Way. You can do this very easily by removing the 6-Way plug, and then testing the wires for function using a circuit tester like # 40376 if needed before installing them in a new 4-Way,...

  • Making a 6-Way Square to 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Adapter for a Motorcycle and Trailer
    Your question is perfectly clear, and it is one that has come up before. Putting a 4-Way flat on the trailer is easy enough. You can use a trailer side 4-Way and splice it to the existing trailer wiring by function. The adapter for the 6-Way square to 4-Way flat is going to require a little more work. I recommend starting with the 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector Kit, # 37995. You will need the end that plugs into the vehicle side to make an adapter. You can then use Quick...

  • What is the Wiring Color Code for a 4 Pole Flat
    Below I have posted a link to the trailer wiring page that has a color code chart on it. Brown = taillights Yellow = left turn/brake Green = right turn/brake White = ground wire To confirm you have the correct connections you can use a circuit tester like the Quickee Tester, # 3808, and match the wiring from the vehicle with your 4 flat.

  • Rewiring the 4-Way Trailer Connectors on the Magnetic Towing Light Kit # C-ATL20A
    If the wires pulled out from one of the 4-Way connectors and you cannot access the inside of the 4-Way housing to re-attach the wires, what you can do is add a new 4-Way. You can use the Quick Fix(TM) 4 Pole Flat Car and Trailer Ends, # 48195. With this kit you get one trailer end and one vehicle end. All you have to do is place the wires in the appropriate location and close the lid on it. The vehicle side has one exposed pin and that is for the white ground wire. Next to it will be...

  • Troubleshooting 6-Pole Square Connector Compatibility with 4 Wire System
    If the square connector is the same, then you will simply need to match functions on the 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector Kit (Car and Trailer Ends) # 37995 for proper connection. I recommend using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to match functions. I've linked an article to assist. You may want to simply change out the ends of your connectors to match each other and use the Quick Fix 4 Pole Flat Car and Trailer Ends # 48195. That would be my personal preference to add clarity...

  • Availability of Just 4-Way Connectors
    What harness are you looking for? Like a 4-way that comes on part # 002220? We have the part # 48195 as well or the part # 9653P that comes with both sides plus wiring if needed. You would just cut the middle of the wiring and would have wire for both sides.

  • Trailer Connectors to Insert Trailer Wires Into
    It sounds like you're looking for the Hopkins Quick Fix trailer connector ends. We have just the trailer side, part # HMC20031, or a combo of the trailer and vehicle sides, part # 48195. If this isn't what you're looking for let me know.

  • Recommendations for a 7-Way to 4-Way Coiled Extension to Flat Tow a Jeep Liberty Behind a Motor Home
    The Hopkins Heavy-Duty, Coiled Trailer Connector Adapter, # HM47075, measures 3 feet long when stretched. This will most likely not be long enough for most flat towing applications unless the 4-Way end on the vehicle has some slack that you can pull out. You could just add a 4-pole loop, # 18045, which will provide another 60 inches of length. There is also a 48 inch loop, # 18044. A longer coiled cable is not available unless you use # RM-1064-B (8 feet long) and then wire in 4-Way...
