Bought this for my 2011 VW Toureg and it fit perfectly into the original small 7 pin factory attachment. The only complaint is that only one of the holes matches up to the factory cable holder on the VW. So I can only screw in one of the screws into the holder without fabricating some more holes by drilling. 143590

I used this to replace a connector that I had broken. It plugged into the existing wiring perfectly the mounting holes did not match the old one exactly but as that was a different brand it was to be expected. The Hopkins appears to be heavier duty than the old one and should stand up better. As with all previous orders with etrailer communication was great and shipping fast and items well packaged. 93277

Awesome. E trailer rocks, product is great. No complaints. Shipped faster than expected and everything was included. I do not normally send reviews because i'm short on time but E trailer exceeds my OCD requirements, and the best thing is...I'm posting the same review for ALL of the products I ordered. Thanks again. 55897

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Wiring
Do you have a question about this Wiring?


  • Is Hopkins 7-Way # HM40940 Direct Replacement for 7-Way Connector on 1999 Dodge Ram
  • If your 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup has a 7-Way with a round U.S. Car Connector that plugs in to the rear of the 7-Way then it will be a simple matter to disconnect it from the existing one and connect it to the Hopkins Quick-Install # HM40940. The photo provided shows the back of a typical 7-Way with the U.S. Car Connector; this is what will mate with the existing harness connector. If your Ram does not have a round U.S. connector to plug in to the back of the 7-Way, but instead has a rectangular...

  • Availability of U.S. Car Connector to Pigtail Wiring Harness and Compatible 7-Way
  • Both the Hopkins Universal Wiring Harness # HM40985 and the Pollak Replacement Harness # PK11998 are 4-feet in length and provide a round U.S. Car type connector on one end and pigtail leads on the other. They are indeed interchangeable. I pulled one each of the two 7-way parts you referenced, parts # HM40940 and # PK11893, and measured their center-to-center mounting hole spacing. Part # HM40940 has 4 holes spaced 1-1/2-inches top to bottom and 2-1/4-inches side to side. Part # PK11893...

  • Can Hopkins Universal Wiring Harness HM40985 Be Installed on Any Vehicle
  • Yes, the Hopkins Universal Wiring Harness # HM40985 can be wired in to any vehicle where you want to be able to install a matching 7-way trailer socket like # HM40940 or a combination 7-way/4-pole like # HM40975. Both of these vehicle-side connectors will accept the round U.S. Car connector plug that is on the harness # HM40985. This harness uses the following wire color configuration: Green: right turn signal Yellow: left turn signal White: ground Brown: tail lights and side marker...

  • No Trailer Brake Lights When Towed by 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 with Hopkins Brake Controller
  • Since you have successfully tested your trailer with other tow vehicles you have isolated the problem to your 2002 Silverado. You do not mention whether this vehicle/trailer combination has ever worked together properly before. If so, the problem could be deteriorated connections or a bad ground. If not, the harness may have been incorrectly wired from the start. One solution is to just remove all the existing wiring and install a powered taillight converter such as part # 119190. I...

  • Replacement 7-Way For 2002 Dodge Ram 1500
  • If your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 has the harness with the round connector like the one in the attached photo, you may only need to replace the 7-way connector that is mounted on the bumper of your truck. I would recommend the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector, part # HM40940. This would replace just the 7-way mounted on your bumper, and comes with the mounting screws. If you are wishing to replace the entire harness and the 7-way connector, the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install...

  • Replacement Connector for Hopkins 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness
  • Yes, the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector # HM40940 referenced in your question will work to replace the connector on your Hopkins 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Harness like # 41157. The 7-Way will connect directly to the round connector on your existing harness. I have also attached a demonstration video on this product for you to check out.

  • Availability of Just 7-Way Socket from Part # HM42190
  • For just the 7-way socket you would want the part # HM40940. This is the same 7-way that comes with the part # HM42190 except without the harness too.

  • Will Hopkins 7-Way part # HM40940 Fit 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Yes, the Hopkins 7-Way part # HM40940 that you referenced will fit as a 7-way replacement for your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500.

  • Solution for Lost 7-Way Retaining Clip that Attaches to Socket
  • The clip that you are referring to that holds the 7-way plug to the socket is typically found on the connector which is why the # HM40940 does not come with it. I wish we sold that piece by itself but only way to get it is to go with a new harness like part # PK11998 and you'd be set. I like where you mounted the 7-way too. A lot of factory 7-ways install in similar places which helps prevent accidental damage like the scenarios you described.
