Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring - Trailer Connectors - HM40950 Review

Today we're going to review part number HM40950. This is the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector for the Vehicle End. Now this trailer connector will serve as a replacement for a damaged socket on a vehicle or it also can be added to a vehicle that has a factory tow package, but doesn't have the connector on it. Now it is designed for vehicles that already have the 7-way tow package on it because it's made to plug into the harness on the vehicle. It is a simple plug in installation. You just insert this into that harness on your tow package port. There's no cutting or splicing of wires, no tools needed.

Does give you a nice 7-way connection and at the very bottom, also a 4-way connection. Both, and we could see, have caps to protect them when they're not being used. This is made of a nice ABS plastic. Gives you enhanced weatherproofing, has internal seals, both the cap there and also this protection, and they use corrosion resistant terminals. The lid itself keeps out dirt and moisture. If you noticed the over-sized hinge right up here, allows the lid to open 180 degrees or more.

It gives you a nice single connection point. Now it does come with the bolts and the nuts for installing this onto your vehicle. If you have a place to install it already or a bracket, you can bolt it right onto that. If not, we do sell mounting brackets separately on our website. Also comes with 2 packs of dielectric grease. Which anytime you make an electrical connection ...

Product has worked well. I like the way the cover opens really wide so it's easy to line up the plug. I installed it on my F-350 on a Ranch Hand rear bumber. The four screw holes holes ranch hand drilled for the screws where slightly off from the holes in your product so I had to rotate connector CCW and drill and tap four new holes. 395697

I have a 1999 (early) Ford F250 Super Duty with both the RV 7 way plus the trailer 4 way plugs. I used item # 118243 to connect to the truck square plug, & then part # HM 40950 which has the 7 and 4 way connector. It was a perfect fit and install was easy. 719244

Product is well made, but did not fit like I was led to believe it would. Had to modify the mount on the truck, but it was not too difficult. Someone without a shop would have a problem, fortunately I have a well equipped shop and the know how to modify just about anything put to me. But the part works well just like designed, really happy with the way it looks and all as well. 651115

Works fine and seems to be made well. Only issue is that the connector screw mounting holes do not match up to the OEM mounting bracket holes and requires drilling of the OEM mounting bracket to mount this connector. 629460

I installed this on a 2016 Ford Interceptor Utility PPV (police pursuit vehicle). The only challenge was modifying the mounting location on the factory hitch assembly to accommodate the larger housing. It works well as I used it the day I installed it, to tow a rental utility trailer and it worked perfectly. 494279

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Wiring

  • Comparing the Hopkins 7-way part # HM40950 and Pollak Replacement 7-Pole # PK11893
    The Hopkins 7-way part # HM40950 that you referenced is designed to fit the same mounting bracket as the # PK11893 that you also referenced. I'd go with the part # HM40950 though as it has a 4-way connector below the 7-way.

  • Changing to 4-Way and 7-Way Connector on a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
    Since your 2017 Honda Ridgeline has the factory 7-way connector on it you should have a wiring harness that has the standard to package plug. It's the harness that plugs into the back of the 7-way connector and looks like the picture I attached. If this is how your 7-way connects then you can simply unplug the factory connector and replace it with part # HM40950 that has both a 4-way and a 7-way connector in one. If your factory 7-way plugs in in some other fashion let me know. Send...

    If the 7-way trailer connector that you have on your 2005 Toyota Tacoma has the two piece removable design and the trailer connector is the only part that is damaged then you could easily replace it with the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector part # HM40950.

If you have a 7-way connector on your Cayenne and need to replace it the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector, part # HM40950 would work fine for you.

  • Changing a 2017 Nissan Frontier Factory 7-Way to a 7- and 4-Way Trailer Connector
    Check the back of your factory 7-Way on your 2017 Nissan Frontier. If you can pull the wiring harness off of the back of it and it looks like # HM40950 on the inside where that harness plugs in then you can just swap out your 7-Way with # HM40950. I have included a picture showing the back, inside of connector # HM40950. Otherwise you would have to use # 118266 and replace the 7-Way with # HM40950.

  • Is Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector Durable
    I have attached a photo of part # HM40950 you can check out. As you can see in the photo the arrows are pointing to the hinges used on the connector are more heavy-duty than the strap and hinge on the 40955 you currently have. We have not had customers complain about the durability of this connector and it should work well for you.

According to Hopkins this connector only fits a 2004 Chevy Tahoe if it's a Z71. The mounting holes are 2.15" apart horizontally and 1.40" apart vertically so that you can compare to your mounting bracket. If you do not have a Z71, I recommend to use the Mighty Cord Replacement 7-Way RV-Style Trailer Connector for Factory Tow...

If you find this connector at the back of the vehicle in the vicinity of the spare tire then yes, 7-Way connector # HM40950 will plug right in. If you find a bundle of wires without a plug then you will need to also use # PK11998 to hardwire into that wire bundle. The functions of the wires for PK11998 are: Red - Left Turn and Stop White - Ground Blue - Electric Brakes Green - Right Turn...

  • Is there a 7-Way Blade to 7-Way Round Pin Adapter that Also has a 4-Way Flat Receptacle
    Hopkins adapter # HM40950 plugs in in place of a blade style 7-Way connector that uses the standard US car connector. It has a 4-Way and 7-Way blade style receptacles. So if you are looking for a 7-Way round pin this one would not work and you would have to remove the old 7-Way and replace it with this one. In order to keep your 7-Way and adapter to a 7-Pole round pin you can use # 47595. But it does not have a 4-Way. None of the 7 blade to 7 round pin adapters have a 4-Way included....

    It is likely that the 7-Way connector on your 2015 Concord DS300 uses the standard US car connector type of connection. If you look at the back of it there should be a harness that plugs into the back of the connector. There is a locking tab you can pull out to remove that harness from the back of the 7-Way. If that is how your RV 7-Way is set up then you can just replace the 7-Way with # HM40950 that you referenced. If the harness cannot be unhooked from the back of the 7-Way then what...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness and Brake Controller Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Highlander
    For starters, you'll need to install a functioning 4-pole trailer connector using part # 118449. How you proceed from there depends on whether your trailer has electric brakes or not. If the trailer doesn't have brakes, you can simply use the # 37185 adapter. Plug the adapter into the 4 pole you just installed and ground the white wire to the vehicle frame. The rest of the wires aren't needed and can be bundled up out of the way. If the trailer does have brakes, you'll need a brake controller...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for Towing with a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder
    I recommend using the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98908 for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder because it is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver, a hidden crosstube, and a matte black finish that does a better job at hiding scratches and dings from road debris than the glossy black finish that most other trailer hitches have.

This comes with everything needed to add a fully functioning 7-Way and 4-Way on your pickup.

  • Troubleshooting Constant Power on Drivers Side Tail Light of Trailer Connector
    It sounds like you have a crossed wire after the fuse panel. Sometimes this happens inside the trailer connector, so I recommend removing your trailer connector and using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to test each of the wire functions at the US Car Connection locations like you see on this harness # 20147. If this connection works correctly then you will want to replace the 7-way connector on your vehicle because it has an internal issue. If this is the case, I recommend the Hopkins...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2016 Nissan Frontier Without Tow Package
    For your 2016 Nissan Frontier without a tow package, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118266. This will allow you to easily connect to your factory wiring and have a 7-way. If you only want the 4-way flat since you are using a small trailer, you can alternatively use the # 118525. Many with even small trailers prefer the 7-way but you can use an adapter like # 47345 or a 7-way with integrated 4-way flat like # HM40950. For the trailer hitch,...

If you want the best of both worlds you can get the 7-way harness, part # 118272 that I mentioned, and not use the connector it comes with but instead use part # HM40950. This...

    Although I don't know the year of your Ford F-350 it does sound like you have an older Super Duty that uses the square connector for the trailer wiring which means that for a 7-way replacement you'd need the # 118243 for something that would plug right in. If you needed the 7 and 4-way connectors you'd need to swap out the included 7-way for the # HM40950 and you'd be set.

    The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118281 is what you need for your 2019 Nissan Frontier. If the trailer has electric brakes you will also need a brake controller. I recommend using the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 and custom wiring harness # 3050-S. There are many brake controller options for you and I've linked a page to them, but I personally like the function and the clean mount of the Tow-Pro Elite. If you want...
