Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring HM48470 Review

Today were going to review part number HM48470. This is the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow seven, five and four-way flat trailer connector for the vehicle end. This heavy duty trailer connector socket right here has an outlet for the seven way right here, has an outlet for a five way flat and a four-way flat that can be plugged in right down there. Both of these outlets have the weather-proofed insulated lids to help cover the terminals. You can see this one has a very strong reinforced lid. On the inside has the internal seals for alternate weatherproofing.

This lid also has the seals in there. They do open 180 degrees on both of them for easier connections of your terminals. It also has this nice large rugged oversized hinge which will hold up very well. Now, this part number does include everything shown here, the connector, the mounting bracket, the rear cover that covers your connections on the back, a couple packets of terminal grease and the mounting hardware to mount it to the mounting bracket. So basically when you install this you just mount your mounting bracket to wherever you need to on your vehicle and then you would just line this up.

The four holes right here will line up with the four on the back and then you will use the mounting hardware. Put the screws through here and the nuts back here to tighten it down. Once you get it installed then you can run your wire through here thats on your vehicle and out here, make your connections and then basically this cover will just snap on. You just push it in and it will lock right into place, just like that and then youre ready to go. Now, I do also want to mention that sometimes it gets confusing on the very bottom.

We show a total of five terminals, so when you have five-way flat, like this one pictured here, the trailer will have the four open terminals and then the one ground terminal thats in rubber, all you would have to do is on this one, the ground would be the exposed terminal right here, so you just line the ground up with the housing and you just it in like that and thats how you make your connection, very simple. What gets confusing is sometimes people say, Well, if I have a four-way flat and theres five holes, what happens Its pretty much just the same way. What you would do is, I have an example here of a Hopkins heres a four-way. It has three terminals and then the ground thats coated in rubber. Same way, you just line the ground up, push this in and then three of the holes will line up.

The other hole on the very end would stay open. That causes no problem at all. So you can hook up a five-way flat or a four-way flat in that bottom terminal.That should do it for the review on part number HM48470, the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow seven, five and four-way flat trailer connector for the vehicle end. .

I could not find a 7 round with a 5 flat connector anywhere in San Diego. Most of the people I spoke with at trailer shops or RV stores said no one makes it only with a 4 flat connector. I just kept looking because I needed one with a 5 flat for my boat and didn't want to keep using my adaptor. I found etrailer and the rep I spoke with was very knowledgeable and said he had exactly what I was looking for and it was a great price. I will be always using etrailer for my trailer parts for now on. Thank you, Vito Lotta - San Diego 144089

Exactly what we had been looking for. Now I can hook up multiple trailers with different connectors and all the electrics on each trailer works. I mounted mine directly to the receiver hitch frame. The biggest challenge for us was routing the backup wire from the taillight housing, through the body of the truck to the connector. the rest went together fairly easily. Seems to be pretty solid and looks much better than the loose pigtail connector it replaced. 446522

I received the product quickly and in perfect condition the packing was excellant. I installed the connector easily and quickly. I consulted the Gm wiring diagram and als found the wires for all the 7 connections. I had a tight spot within the bumper edge, but managed to find short bolts to attach the bracket in old exsisting holes. The rest was easy attaching the connectors and making sure all wires were through the rear enclosure and tightening them down. I tested the 4 wire connector with my boat trailer lights and it worked like it was designed to do. I LOVE the versatility of this connector. Thanks etrailer.com!! Great product at a great price. 14869

Installed the Hopkins muti-tow 7, 5, and 4 way flat connector this morning. I ripped the original connector that was attached to the bottom of the hitch receiver off when I was 4-wheeling into the Doll House campgrounds in the Maze District of Canyonlands a month ago. So, I cut a hole in the bumper and mounted the new Hopkins connector, cut off the old broken connector mounting bracket, and connected the factory wiring to the new Hopkins device. Hopkins product installed easily, looks great, is now out of the way, and has the flexibility of multiple trailer connectors when required. I am pleased with the product. Attached is a photo. 133981

Had everything you need. Be careful tightening the terminals, they bend easily so you may short one to another. Otherwise good bang for the buck. I would buy again. 116423

After a year the connector is still working great. Just remember to close the cover for the 5 pin flat connector. Still feel good about it.

I had broken my factor connector on my 06 Tacoma, frankly due to a poor design placement by Toyota in my opinion, however I was not going to pay a premium $200+ price for a new OEM part and I wasn't planning to place it back in the original spot to only get broken again. This is a great replacement plus I no longer need a wire adapter. The unit fit perfectly in pre-cut hole that held my left tag light. Only had to drill 4 small holes for the bolts to secure to the bumper. Only pain was cutting the old wire and attaching it to the new connector, but that only took 10 minutes top. 116271

Very rugged device, good design. This alleviates having a 4 or 5 wire connection hanging from your vehicle. Great for replacement of old connector. Great for DIY 212372

Installed: 9/12/2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Installation of the plug was a quick and easy. The existing Warrior hitch has a tab on the side for a trailer wiring socket. Drill a new hole on the installation bracket (comes with the trailer connector) so the bracket on the hitch matches bracket on the trailer connector. Done deal. This is the only trailer connector I found which has the 7, 5 and 4 connector options. Flexibility is always a good idea when you are borrowing someone else trailer or renting. 99853

It's a connector! We got this connector to wire our small teardrop with an RV 7-blade for underway charging and reverse lights. It's well built, seals well when not in use, and does its job just fine. We did not lube the contacts, but so far no visible corrosion. The 4/5 flat connector is a nice bonus - keeps us from needing to carry along an adapter. If you're installing it in a new location there are two things to remember: make sure you have enough depth at the installation point to allow wiring to run clear, and use a REAL bimetal hole saw if you're installing it in a metal bumper. Would use again. 442304

Trailer light connector arrived in a reasonable time and is as represented. I will like the convenience of having both the flat and RV style plugs, but it does make the receptacle a bit bulkier than just an RV connector. For me, finding a suitable mounting location that will not put it as the lowest thing in back is often a challenge. I don't like making big holes in the bumper, esp. on my pristine old truck bumper. etrailer used to offer a connector box that secured to the hitch square tube with a hose clamp. I bought one for use on a motorhome and it worked well, but I could not find it offered any more. 524171

I am the purchasing manager for a company that fabricates and installs custom truck equipment. Usually our customers don't want the 7 way RV style plug. When they do want this plug, we always install the Hopkins model. It is a great unit, and also gives the customer 4 way and 5 way flat options as well. This is the one I use on my personal truck. Great product, and E trailer always ships fast and has everything in stock. Much better than our local trailer supply company. 179954

Looks like an Excellent Auto or Truck Plug. I Haven't had a chance to replace the one on my Van yet that is 1997 Vintage. My main use is power to a powered Wheel Chair lift for a 200 Lb power chair. It is also 1997 Vintage. I use # 10 wire for Ground and 12 Volts to the plug through a 30 Amp Circuit Breaker. It also powers the lights on my 4x6 and 5x8 trailers. I have occasionally pulled large trailers and RV's. Thank you George and etrailer for your quick response. 388411

I had very little room between my spare tire and the socket. It's probably listed somewhere but I couldn't find it for the two I was looking at. I made an online inquiry and Michael H. got right back to me with all the dimensions and clearances needed, which convinced me to go with the HM48470. Ordered it, some wire and a receiver lock, which arrived today. Will wait for the snow to melt before I crawl under there to install them. Thanks again for the great service! 353158

Part arrived quickly and was exactly as pictured. Installation on my 2008 Dodge Durango was a little tricky, as there is no easy place to install it. Luckily my buddy was able to drill holes in bumper next to the hitch and then tap them so we could attach the connector with screws. There is not much room for the connector to fit, but by bending the metal mounting plate slightly it worked perfectly. The chart included with the product made it easy to wire correctly. 150280

Great product - the overall depth is a bit deep and for my specific application I had some challenges finding a good mounting point (partially due to the depth of the adapter and partly due to the lack of solid mounting surface. The product itself is sold with a flexible five/four way plug (single plug accommodates both the four and five pin) that will not easily break. The seven pin plug has a fairly stiff cover that is spring loaded. Wiring was simple too! 30756

I bought this to replace a factory Jeep 7 point connector. I didn't figure out till I was done that the brackets were the same shape and I could have left the original on. It was very easy to install, even for someone as mechanically challenged as I am. The bracket that was included is a bit flimsy and there were no self tapping screws with it. Otherwise it was exactly what I needed. Less than 30 minutes to install 106389

Very well made, nicely designed. Note, if you mount this vertically, as suggested, a plastic cover is provided for the rear, and the unit may extend beyond your old bracket. My old bracket was a part of the original Hidden Hitch, and this extended beyond the old bracket. Because the rear plastic cover is NOT waterproof, it can be sealed with a small bead of RTV or similar sealant under the edge of the cover. 54217

The Trailer plugin was a replacement for a cheaper one, that was mounted below the bumper, next to the tow hitch. This one is mounted in the bumper, between the license plate lamp and the license plate, out of the way of being damaged. Great plugin. ( but drilling the bumper was a pain, but worth every bit of time). This is my third order from E-trailer. Great Service and looking forward to my next order. 522036

Actually I had two (2) seperate order because i could not make up my mind as to how i wanted to wire the trailer and other accessories that I have. Anyway, both orders were packaged extremely well. Shipment/receipt was great; took a short timeframe from the time items were ordered. Only one problem. No one showed up to help install all the parts I ordered. Thanks for the products and the support! 36330

Looks good, seems sturdy enough. I had a little trouble getting the back cover on after squeezing all my wires through. The rubber seal for the wires kept getting stuck on my wires when I tried to slide it down, probably be a good idea to make sure they're all in a nice and tight bundle to make it easier. Haven't been able to try it yet, though everything seemed to work when I used a test light. 88699

This seems to be a pretty nice plug. Makes it nice with the 4 way and 7 all in one. The lid has a pretty stout spring on it so it should keep the weather out. Fast shipping excellent service. 112601

This is a nicely built durable connector , the install was easy but took some time ...I pre wired it with a four blade male which plugged into the factory four blade female on my 2013 f150 ... just make sure your connection screws are tight , I added silicone to them so they dont back out ... Looks great and it is defiantly a nice piece of hardware , spring shuts tight and seals nice ... 120457

George, The 7 pin connector replaced the original. Product quality is good and addition of the 4 and 5 pin hookup is a plus. Splicing wires and ring terminals and getting them to all fit inside the housing is not for a novice, but it all went fine. Trailer lights and brakes are working. The Deka wire was substantial, larger gauge than oem. thanks 501924

I like this trailer connection. It seems to be well made and it is reasonably priced. I received my order in a reasonable time as well.

The construction, though plastic is robust. The convenience of the 4,5,and RV flat 7 plug was what I was drawn to this item. This will be mounted on a commercial use build up so time will tell how well it will hold up to use. This eliminated a converter, which was an independent piece, so we got easier and simplified use. 420158

Its exactly what I needed to rewire my truck (2002 F150). My only complaint is that once you snap all the parts together in the rear, its very difficult to take apart. I ended up breaking off one of the clasps while trying to adjust the wiring. It still seals in the wires and has a tight fit. I really like my setup now!!! 30096

The product was indeed what I ordered and seems to be sturdily built. The shipping process was not what I expected though. It took week to get to me that should have been a 2-3 day mail process. Following the path it went from the St Louis area to Kansas City before being sent on to Chicago and that took 2 extra days. 529398

This is a great idea. Can tow multiple types of trailers using this, 7 wire RV style, 4 wire flat and 5 wire flat. Replacing the existing 7 wire RV style connector on my vehicle with this will make things a lot more convenient. 3 of the most common trailer types in 1 simple socket. 466055

Great plug. The rear cover has two clips to hold the wire cover on the back. If you attach the wire cover, don't try to remove it, brand new the clips break off. Very fragile. Other than that the plug is easy to install and wire and hold the trailer plug firmly. 11114

Overall , great plug and decent design . The rear cable entry could be a bit better to make it more weatherproof but works ok as is . I would highly suggest using a dielectric grease and tinning the wires to prevent corrosion . 99570

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 1997 Chevy C/K Series Pickup
  • It sounds like you need to add a 7-Way RV style trailer connector to your 1997 Chevy pickup. Since you already have a connector, you will just need to add a 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. Though I am not certain if you have a 5-Way flat connector or a 4-Way flat connector. If you have a 4-Way, it will plug into the back of the ETBC7. If you have a 5-Way, I recommend first installing a 4-Way using part # 118315, and plugging it into the back of the ETBC7. With the 4-Way plugged...

  • Do 7-Way Trailer Connectors have Amp Ratings for Pins or the Whole Socket
  • Most if not all trailer wiring harnesses/connectors use larger wires for the 12 volt and ground circuits compared to the other circuits (lights). The sockets themselves don't have an amperage rating so you will go by the draw of the things drawing power. In order to figure out what the lights are drawing you could connect the trailer to the tow vehicle and turn on a function while testing the trailer side wiring behind the connector with a meter to see what sort of reading you get....

  • How to Stop Corrosion in The 7-Way RV Style Connector
  • Your best bet to eliminate corrosion in your 7-way connector is to use some Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, item # 11755. Use this on the wiring connectors inside the connector when installing the connector and occasionally on the connection between the truck and trailer and your corrosion issues will be behind you. The corrosion you are experiencing is from moisture in the air and is prevelent with the RV connectors. The presence of constant 12 volt power creates an atmosphere...

  • Is it Better to Switch to a 7-Way Blade Style Trailer Connector Over a 7-Way Round Pin
  • The 7-Way blade style trailer connector is the most common 7-Way in use at this time. It would be beneficial to switch to this style. However, if you already have a 7-Way round connector you can just use an adapter to go to a 7-Way blade style when needed. You can use # PK12-724. If you want to go ahead and switch from the 7-Way round to the blade style I recommend a multi-tow connector, # HM48470, which has a 7-Way blade style, a 5-Way flat, and 4-Way flat.

You can access the wiring harness leading to the existing 7-way, and tap in a 4-pole harness like part # 18252, which would allow you to use both harnesses simultaneously. The connector includes a circuit tester which would help identify which circuit serves which lighting function. Another option would be to completely...

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-Way on a 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • If you are looking for a way to 7-way trailer wiring on your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon you will first need to start with a 4-way. For that you will want the part # C56040. (see install video). Now if your trailer doesn't have brakes all you would need to convert this to a 7-way would be the part # 37185. If you do need a 7-way because your trailer has trailer brakes you would instead need the part # ETBC7. This comes with a length of loom. For a brake controller I would recommend...

  • Mounting The Hopkins Multi-Tow 7-, 5- and 4-Way Trailer Connector # HM48470 On A 2010 Volvo XC90
  • The Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 75152, has a mounting plate on it that will allow you to attach a mounting bracket for a vehicle end connector.

  • How To Install A 7-Way Connector In The Bed Of A 2002 Ford F-250 For A Fifth Wheel
  • If you have a factory tow package with a factory 7-way trailer connector already on your 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty, then I have a couple of recommendations to put a 7-way in the bed of your truck. The Draw-Tite Wiring Harness, # 50-97-410, will plug inline between the OEM wiring harness and the factory installed 7-way connector under your truck bed. You will retain the use of the factory 7-way on the bumper and then have 9 feet of wiring harness to have a 7-way in your truck bed. The...

  • Recommended 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2002 Ford Excursion to Replace Factory Connector
  • I recommend using the 7-way trailer connector # HM40975 on your 2002 Ford Excursion if you have the round factory connector it plugs into. It will be where the wires you have shown in your picture plug into the vehicle's factory wiring. If you don't have that connector then instead use the Hopkins # HM48470 directly onto the loose wires you have. I've attached a diagram that shows the back of a 7-way and which circuit needs to go to which location. You'll want to test each wire you...
