Video Transcript for Hopkins Wiring - Trailer Connectors - HM48502 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins 7-way RV style trailer connector with night glow. The 7-way RV style trailer end connector is going to plug into the 7-way on your vehicle. It's going to feature night glow technology, so that function is going to illuminate the plug when the taillights on the tow vehicle are activated. There's a single LED located in the plug that will turn on. That's going to offer easy troubleshooting even in the dark or low light conditions and it's going to enable you to find your electrical connection in the dark as well. It's got the nice large finger tabs on it, so it's got the easy to grip design that's going to allow for a simple plug-in and disconnect. The unit is made from a strong and durable plastic construction that's impact resistant.

It's also going to feature corrosion resistant terminals to withstand the elements. I do want to go ahead and show you what the night glow looks like, so I'm just basically going to make a couple connections here. We're going to turn off our overhead lights. You can see there that the plug turns on. Again, a single LED on the inside illuminates the plug when the taillights on your tow vehicle are activated. When you're ready to make your connections, as you can see there's no wiring with this so you would need to ...

This is basically just a plug that's designed to replace the plug on your trailer wiring. In order to do that, you would need to remove the set screw here on top. It's pretty small, so be careful not to lose it. Go ahead and take that all the way out and then we'll push the insert out. You would run your wires in through the back and bring it out the front of the housing and make all your connections here on the insert.

It's got the terminals there with all the screws on it so you can easily get your wires connected that way. Once you have it connected, you place the two pieces back together and then you simply just reinstall the screw here at the top. Here at the back of the plug it's going to feature a seal, so there's another screw located right here. What you can do is you can tighten that down and that's going to bring this seal down over the wiring. That's going to create a good seal, so that's going to really help prevent the elements from getting in there to the connection points. The overall length of the plug from front to back is going to measure about 3-1/2 inches. That's going to do it for the Hopkins 7-way RV style trailer end connector with night glow..

Works good but you need to be sure to cut the wires to the plug clean and at the proper length

Horrible product, the plastic is weak. After tightening the screws the thin red plastic cover cracked. This definitely would not hold up in a camping environment. If the plug were to hit the ground from a fall or be dropped inadvertently the thin red shell would crack. I decided to replace the 8ft section of cord from the junction box on the trailer. With a Bargman molded 7 way trailer cable.

I am very grateful to etrailer for always providing excellent service. Orders are received in a timely and accurate fashion. The quality of their products is superb. All items ordered function as described with no malfunctions. The trailer and vehicle wiring connectors I have ordered were a great replacement for old existing equipment that was constantly failing. Very professional company. Very high quality products. I look forward to continued business with them.

I had a double blow out and one of my rims cracked. So I ordered these and they look great. I plan on installing them on my gooseneck this weekend. The four lighted 7 way plugs are awesome. I am slowly changing all 15 of my trailers over to these plugs. In the daytime it's hard to tell if everything is working or that a fuse hasn't blown, so these lighted plugs help you trust your connection. Thanks for the great pricing and prompt shipping.

Easy to hook trailer wires to. However, the wire for the led light is flimsy and broke during the wire connection process eliminating the benefit of a lighted plug.

Great product and received on time



- HM48502
by:

The led light was held by a single strand of wire, which promptly broke while wiring the plug. Suggest removing it before starting installation.

red plastic is more brittle than the black style, cracks if set screw is tightened too much

by:

My first one of these I purchased at an auto parts store and paid a lot more for. I installed in on my tandem enclosed trailer and absolutely love it because its solid and when installed the LED light inside indicates a good connection.

Good product, one improvement would be to include directions on LED lighting. You need one wire of the LED on a positive and one on ground. I moved mine according to the purpose I needed.

Designed well. Better electrical contacts than the displaced plug.

Better than expected...works great.

Good product, it's good quality. Was better than the factory installed plug that Bigtex put on.

by:

Product works great, would've prefered if it lit up brighter but no issue. Unfortunately immediately after purchase I lost the screw that holds it together and it's very difficult to find a replacement being its a specialty screw. Would buy again

This connector was just what I needed to renew my trailer/TV connection.
