Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring H20044 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part of our h20044. This is the Hopkins 7 way molded trailer wire connector. It's going to measure 6 ft. long. This unit is going to work great as a replacement, if you're needing to replace a 7 way connector on your trailer. Or if you're adding wiring, this would be a good addition to that as well.

That way you can plug in into a 7 way RV style connector on your vehicle, and that can send power back to the trailer to activate the trailer signal lights. So you can see on this end we're going to have the nice 7 way connector. It's got the finger tabs on there, so we can easily connect it and disconnect it. Then working back to the end, it's got the nice casing that goes around the wires. That's going to really help protect them from any type of damage, or it's going to keep the safe when exposed to the elements. You're going to have 5 ft.

of total length to work with. And then here at the back we're going to have our exposed wires. See all the different colors that we have Red, brown, green and yellow. These are all going to be 14 gauge wiring. Blue is going to be 12 gauge and then white and black is going to be 10 gauge wiring.

The white is going to function as a ground. Red is going to function as left turn and brake. Brown is going to function as right turn and brake. Green is for tail lights. Blue is going to be for brake power, we have a brake controller.

Black is going to be our 12 volt hot lead, and yellow is going to be the auxiliary circuit. That's going to do it for today's review of part number h20044. This is the Hopkins 7 way molded trailer wire connector. Measuring six feet long. .

by: Neal, D04/15/2016

Initially this product seemed perfect. It is stout and seems to be able to hold up to the wear and tear of the road. It fits far better then the cheap connector I picked up at the convenient store. The length was more than adequate to replace my old connector. However, after installing it my lights went CRAZY!! My passenger side turn signal was constantly on. When I hit the driver side turn signal all the lights flashed. The brakes did turn anything on. So I completely disconnected it and got out my trusted multimeter. Turns out that the brown wire went to the green on the trailer, the yellow to the brown, the green to the red, ect. It was a mess. Within 10 minutes I had the wires feeding the correct lights. I'm not sure if it is because Chevrolet doesn't use the industry standard or if my connector was defective. Either way it's fixed now and works great!! Even with all of those problems I still give it 4 stars. 245487

Products were all as described and good quality. The only problem was packaging. The insulation on the wires on one of the brake assemblies was cut requiring splicing. Not a big deal but did require additional time and effort since they were cut where going through back plate. Wish I had purchased two conductor brake wire. Would have made job easier.But that was my mistake. 185439


No problems, everything working as it should.

The connector is a good piece, however the colors do not match up. Anyone familiar with trailer and truck wiring knows that the wires are all color coded for a reason. If your not going to make the colors match up then why utilize the same colors? I hard wired everything neatly and then found out brown doesn't go to brown, and so on.... Had to test every lead to get it all wired properly... extremely aggravating. My suggestion is that the wires be run properly so they can all match color wise... and if that's not possible, then send a wiring diagram along with the harness when it is shipped. 208164

The products were ordered on Sunday night late, delivered by Wednesday. Converting drum surge brakes to disc, electric over hydraulic on a boat trailer for 26ft Sea Ray boat. I had everything including Titan brake actuator, 4 kodiac rotor and caliper conversion kits with bearings, and new lines installed by Thursday evening. Installation was straight forward, everything fit perfectly. One of the calipers was malfunctioning (not releasing). I called customer service and I had a new one within two days, it's now installed and working great!! Great product! Awesome service!! 340162

Coodo's to etrailer again for your excellent service and delivery! All the etrailer Reps are knowledgable, and of great assistance throughout the Q&A and ordering process. The new Load Range E trailer tires and 7-way molded wire connector I ordered arrived in 3 days to rural SW Colorado. Excellent service! Will mount them today, and have no doubt they will work far better than the Load Range C tires I had before. Same brand, same size, just higher rating. These etrailer folks are on top of it, their handling of return items is exceptional. I recommend them highly! 224057

Products received were high quality as advertised and the customer service was awesome. US postal service as the delivery method was less then impressive. Found my package laying on the ground by my mailbox roadside. This by no means was Etrailers Fault but something to consider when they chose a delivery method for their customers. The experience with Etrailers other then this was awsome. Will be ordering more for sure. 380541

I converted an old rectangular 6-pin connector on my 2001 Skamper pop-up. Had I just went ahead and wired it up color-to-color to begin with, I wouldn't have had to un-tape it 3 times to correct my wiring. My problem was I studied the wiring diagrams too much, and even googled for more 7-way connector diagrams, thereby creating more confusion and conflicting opinions. 388884

I felt the product was good, but the cord was not long enough. When I ordered it, the one I wanted had a longer cord, but was not available. I was in a bind so I took the shorter one. It works great, but it is not long enough for my needs. If I have to turn the trailer sharp the cord will pop out of the plug, due to the shortness of the cord. Good product. 339810

The items that I orderd were received in a very timley manner. I had originally ordered a different trailer pig tail and etrailer contacted me and let me know that the items were back ordered from the supplier and made recomendations on what they had in stock. The staff at etailer are very proffesonal and I will diffenitly purchase from them in the future. 160503

I found my kitchen exhaust fan motor on etrailer after looking all over the internet. It was a perfect match and the price was also good. I have also purchased products to re-wire a boat trailer. The handling and shipping is always fast. And the prices for what I have purchased are great. I highly recommend you use etrailer and I am so glad I found them. 181492

I purchased this pig tail as a replacement for my boat trailer. The cord that came with the trailer was too short and would come unplugged going around corners. The new cord came with ample length and appeared to be well made. Time has proved that to be correct. I recently ordered another for our travel trailer as a result of this experience. 363400


Hello Kent C!! Thank you for purchasing our Wire Connector. Hopkins is pleased that we were able to solve you cord problem. We really appreciate your business and are looking forward to doing more business with you in the future.

I found that their Web site was fairly easy to navigate through. I was easily able to find what I needed. Placed my order and waited. Was able to easily track my products progress which was nice. Received it and open the package and found it well packed and the product looks well constructed and durable. I would order from here again. 283638


Its working great. Had to verify each wire individually as the online schematics may have been different colors but with a few minutes a second person and a multimeter it was figures out. Wired onto trailer and have had no issues

Very disappointed. As we all know it's quite a job to re-attach a trailer connector even using a trailer junction box. Then to see the connector come apart from the cord exposing the individual wires after a short time and very moderate use is heart breaking. I do not recommend this brand. 325573

by: Peter b.11/18/2016

Beware, This molded plug wire colors probably China standard. The wiring colors is not as US standard trailer colors. I had to rewire after problem with lights. Red on plug is yellow left signal, Green is tail light brown and brown on plug is green right signal. Unacceptable. 317963

by: Scott02/08/2017

I bought this to replace the one on a trailer I bought that people had splice and taped. This unit worked great and allowed me to streamline the wiring back to original new condition. The plug is molded on so I do not have to worry about it coming loose or moisture getting in. 340030

by: Mark C07/25/2016

Nice strong product, but the wiring colors are all nuts. Not standard at all. The description even states that. I returned the last one that had nutty wiring colors, but gave up on this one. Since my cable was proprietary to just me and my toad, I decided to live with it. 276007

Very nice quality product. It's nice to have a molded plug, and this fits the bill nicely. Length is adequate as well. Couple this with one of the trailer junction boxes (another excellent product) and you'll have a clean and professional installation. 286374

Quality product at a reasonable price. Worked great- used a "weather pack" connector for a nice sealed connection to the rest of the trailer wiring. Just be sure to carefully check the wire colors (as many noted in the reviews)- they are not standard! 302517

For a 7-way with 6 ft of molded wire you need part # H20044, and for the connector with 4 ft of molded wiring you need part # H20043. for a connector with a coiled wire I recommend the WesBarg 7-Way, RV-Style Connector, part # WG54006-043.

  • We do offer a tow dolly with electric drum brakes, the Roadmaster # RM-2000-1, which fits a 2-inch hitch ball. This dolly has a 4,380-lb weight capacity for the loaded vehicle. It includes electric brakes, 4-pole wiring harness with extra wire for the brake circuit, loading ramps and wheel nets that fit tires from 12 up to 16-inches. The brake controller I recommend is the Prodigy P2 # 90885. This reliable unit is highly rated by our customers and it works with both electric and electric-over-hydraulic...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Trailer Brakes to Pop-Up Camper
  • The Dexter 8-91 hub would have a 4 lug on 4 inch bolt circle and would use L44649 bearings, so I'd recommend checking to see if your existing bearings have the same reference number. I've linked you to an FAQ article that shows exactly what you'll need to add electric brakes to your pop-up camper. Your existing axle would need to have brake mounting flanges mounted on each end behind where the hub would sit. The flanges provide a spot for the brake assemblies to bolt in place. If you...

  • Replacing Trailer Connector Wiring for Rockwood A122 A-Frame Trailer with 6-Pole Square Wiring
  • Instead of replacing both the 7-Way blade-style connector as well as the 6-Pole square connectors, # 37995, I recommend using a 7-Way connector and junction box to make the connections for your trailer. This will eliminate the additional, unnecessary connection at the 6-Pole square connectors. The 7-Way connector I recommend is the Hopkins 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector with 6 Foot Lead # H20044. This connector will provide power for left turn and brake signals, right turn and...

  • Available 7-Way Wiring Extensions for Camper Trailer
  • We have exactly what you need to provide a convenient 7-way socket for your camper. If your vehicle has a bumper-mounted 7-way socket that uses a round U.S. Car type connector that plugs into the back you can use the 90-degree 7-way harness # 41157 that you referenced. This is 10-feet long. Similar part # 50-97-410 is 9-feet. Such 90-degree harnesses are usually 8 to 10-feet long. We do offer a straight 5-foot 7-way extension, part # TLW6060, that plugs into your 7-way socket (not into...

  • Adapting Connector on Toyota Rav 4 to Provide Power to Trailer Battery
  • Probably your best bet would be the 4 to 7-way Adapter, part # 37185. Your existing 4 pin connector would plug into the adapter. The black wire on the adapter would be extended with a length of 12 gauge wire (sold by the foot, part # 12-1-1). The wire would need to attach to the positive battery terminal via a 40 amp inline circuit breaker, part # 9510. For the trailer, you could use the Molded Trailer Wire Connector, part # H20044. The lighting circuits would be attached to the connector...

  • Recommended Wiring, Junction Box, And Breakaway Kit For 18-Ft Tandem Flat Bed Trailer
  • To re-wire your 18-ft trailer you will need a few things. I recommend installing a junction box like part # PK52248. You can run your trailer connector like part # H20044 to the junction box and use the terminals in the box to run the wiring to the trailer. For 7-way jacketed wire I recommend part # DW04914-1. This is sold by the foot. The junction box will also make it easier to install and use a breakaway kit like part # HM20001. This kit includes a charger and a weather-resistant...

  • Troubleshooting Brakes of Logan 3 Horse Trailer Towed by 2015 Silverado 3500 w/ OEM Brake Controller
  • Good thinking testing the truck with your other trailer, you've ruled out the truck as being the cause of the problem. Since all the trailer lights are functioning on the trailer, the problem is likely in the braking system. Start with the trailer plug, and closely examine it for damage or corrosion. If it's damaged or corroded, you can replace it with a connector like part # H20044 for a 6 foot long wire or # H20046 for an 8 foot long wire. Trace the brake output circuit back to...

  • Adding Brakes to Acme Car Dolly
  • We don't offer parts specific for the Acme tow dolly, but we have the parts you'd need to add either electric or hydraulic drum brakes. I'm assuming your tow dolly doesn't currently have brakes, and that your current hubs use the # L44649 as the inner and outer wheel bearing. If that's the case, to add electric brakes, you'd need the following parts: # 8-257-5UC3-EZ hub drum for EZ lube spindle or # 8-257-5UC3 for standard spindles # 23-47 and # 23-48 electric brake assemblies # H20044...

  • Parts Needed to Re-Wire 18 Foot Car Hauler Trailer with 7-Way Connector
  • To re-wire your 18 foot car hauler with electric brakes on one axle, I recommend using a wiring junction box like # 38656 in order to make the connections from the lights and brakes. Then for a 7-way trailer plug, you can use the Hopkins # H20046. This connector has an 8 foot lead. The shorter 6 foot # H20044 or 4 foot # H20043 trailer connectors are also available. I recommend using a circuit tester like # 40376 to determine the functions for any wires that are not known, as just using...

  • Parts Needed to Add Electric Trailer Brakes to StarCraft Boat Trailer
  • You can indeed use electric brakes, but we'd recommend unplugging the trailer before backing into the water. If you click the link I've provided, you can see what's needed to add brakes to a trailer that currently has idler hubs. The first thing you'll need to do is determine which wheel bearings your existing hubs use. Then, find the wheel bolt pattern and wheel diameter (last two numbers in the tire size) so the new hub/drums you choose will be compatible with your existing spindles...

  • Wiring Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Wrangler
  • It sounds like you've created your own umbilical to go from the 7-way on your RV to a 7-way on your Jeep. The Hopkins connector # H20043 is 4 feet long, which isn't going to be long enough to bridge the gap of space for flat towing. You're going to need at least 6 foot umbilical. For a 6 foot 7-way molded cable use # H20044. We typically don't see 7-ways on the front of vehicles, for a great 7-way to 6-way umbilical with a 6-way (which is most common) connecter and mounting bracket I...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Towing Travel Trailer
  • My online research shows a 3600-lb maximum towing capacity for the 2011 Grand Caravan V6 but your owner's manual will indicate your specific van's towing capabilities which could be more or less depending on the particular engine and transmission configuration. A hitch has to be specifically rated for use with weight distribution (WD) systems; your hitch's safety sticker will tell you whether or not this is the case. If you have a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch then you cannot use WD. Only...

  • Recommended Wiring And Waterproof Lights For 2000 Ranger 620 VDS Boat Trailer
  • To completely rewire the trailer you will need to start with a 7-way trailer side wiring harness like part # H20044. You will then need a junction box like part # 38656 to attach to the trailer. You will run the # H20044 harness into the junction box and run the wiring for the brakes and lights off of the posts in the junction box. You will need the appropriate size wire for the lights and for brakes if you have them on the trailer. You will want to run 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1...

  • Hitch, Wiring & Related Items for 1999 Ford F-150 Standard Bed
  • For your 1999 Ford F-150 with standard bed Curt Class IV 2-inch hitch # C14355 is a confirmed fit. The Curt ball mount # C45341 is compatible and will provide either 3-inches of rise or 4-inches of drop. You can use your existing hitch ball IF it is Class IV-rated and if it has a 1-1/4-inch diameter shank. If not you can use either 2-inch ball # A-90 or 2-5/16-inch ball # 63840. If ball mount # C45341 does not have the correct rise or drop to keep your hitched trailer level then you...

  • Wiring a Stop/Turn/Tail Light to Molded 7-Way Connector
  • The Stop/Turn/Tail Trailer Lights # ST21RS and # ST20RS will ground through the mounting hardware, so the two wires will need to connect to the Hopkins 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20044 simply by function. The red wire on the lights is for the tail light function, which is the green wire on the molded connector. The black wire on the lights is for the turn signal and brake functions, which are the red (driver's side) and brown (passenger's side) wires on the molded connector.
