These connectors were high quality by a known manufacturer. I could have bought them locally but I wouldn't have gotten the expert advice and detailed information that I was able to get from eTrailer!. I talked to several people and each one was very knowledgeable. When the parts arrived, it surprised me because they came so quickly! I would readily order from them again if I needed more trailer parts. I used these connectors to adapt a Minn-Kota trolling motor to my fishing kayak and have attached some pictures showing it installed. 150859

Purchased some new LED lights for trailer. eTrailer has good prices and a good selection. Shipping was a bit slow but that may be be eTrailer's fault, we all know how the postal service works...or doesn't. No reservations about re-ordering from this company, I like that George followed up with me afterward to make sure I'm satisfied. Order with confidence! 372786

I got exactly what I ordered, two replacement cable plugs for my tow bar from car to tow vehicle. Package included easy to follow instructions for wiring connections. The cable package from the tow bar company is pretty pricey but these plugs and the existing cable to repair cost around $10.00. I will probably order two more to have as spares. 410089

Was impressed with the websites videos showing how to remove, replace and wire these fittings. When the fitting arrived the procedures were as easy as demonstrated. Did note however that the old fittings showed silicone sealant around the wire connection points and don't recall that being part of the instructions, but seemingly a good idea 168574

  • Using a 6-Way to 7-Way Adapter for a RV with 6-Way Round Socket and Trailer with a 7-way Connector
  • The Hopkins 6 Pole to 7 Pole Adapter, # 47435, does have a pin for the brake output for a brake controller. This adapter will work for your set up as long as the center pin of the 6-way plug on your RV is for 12v power and the pin in the 10 o clock position is for the brakes. You can verify this using a circuit tester like part # 3808. If the center pin on your 6-way plug is wired for brakes and the pin in the 10 o clock position is for 12v power, then you can still make an adapter using...

  • How to Rewire an Old Cattle Trailer

The colors that you see on the 7-way connector are typical for RV style trailers rather than utility, cargo, or livestock style trailers. The black wire should be connected to the terminal in the 7-way connector labeled black. This is the terminal in the 11 oclock position when you are looking at the back of the trailer connector (see...

  • Why Do the Trailer Brakes Lock Up When 6-Way Connector Is Plugged Into Ford Truck
  • A 6-Way round pole connector can be wired one of two ways; with the center pole as the 12 volt hot lead, or as the brake. Having the center pole as the 12 volt hot lead is probably most common. In your case, the 6-Way round connector on your Dodge is probably wired with the center pole as the brake lead. The Ford is probably wired with the center pole for the 12 volt power. When you plug in the connector to your trailer and the center is 12 volt power it is just going to lock up the...

Also, you should trace both of these wires back on the trailer to see where they terminate. The ground wire should be connected to the frame of your trailer.

  • Wiring Magnetic Tow Lights to a 6-way Round Connector on a RV

  • Testing the Trailer Wires for Function Using a Circuit Tester on a Horse Trailer
  • My suggestion is to test the wires for function with the trailer connected to the tow vehicle. You will need a circuit tester, like the Quickee # 3808, or a multimeter if you have one. You can start with any function, but I recommend starting with the left turn signal. It would help to have someone sit in the tow vehicle and engage the functions while you test the wires on the trailer. With the left blinker on, probe the wires until you find the one that carries a signal in unison with...

  • How to Convert a Military Wired Trailer to a 6-way Civilian Trailer Connector
  • I wish we had an adapter that would allow you to tow your military trailer with your vehicle that has a 6-way but we do not. What you could do is cut off the military connection and then wire up a 6-way in place of it. For that you would need a Pollak 6-Pole # PK11604 and taillight converter # 118158. Before you cut off the connector you will want to pick out the following wires from the back of the military connector and label them somehow. Masking tape and a marker would do well. J,...

  • No Running Lights On Trailer With 6-Pin Connected To 2003 Dodge Ram With Factory 7-Way
  • If you tested the trailer lights and everything is working then the problem is from the 6-Way connector back to the truck. You will want to use a circuit tester like, # 3808, to test the 7-Way connector attached to the 2003 Dodge Ram. First test the pin on the connector that would be the running lights and see if you have power coming out of the connector. If there is no power coming out then test the wire on the back of the connector that is for the running lights to see if you have...

  • Solution for Trailer Connector that Has No Ground Wire
  • Sounds like your trailer wiring does not have a ground circuit for it's connector. The easy solution for that is to run a wire from the ground pin of the connector to the trailer's frame. Your trailer electronics should work a little better now as previous to this it was grounding through the ball mount.

  • Tow Dolly Recommendation For 2014 Chevrolet Spark Being Towed Behind Motorhome
  • I did some research and found that your 2014 Chevrolet Spark with an automatic transmission cannot be flat-towed behind your motorhome. In order to tow your Spark you will need to either use a transport dolly or use a tow dolly. I recommend the RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes, part # RM-2000-1. This dolly has a capacity of 4,380 lbs and has electric brakes. This dolly also has an adjustable axle and ramps which will allow it to fit almost any vehicle. And the tow dolly...

  • How to Rewire Trailer for 6 Way Connection with Separate Turn Signals and Brake Lights
  • First you will want a new 6-way like the Hopkins 6-Way Molded Connector, # H20036. Installing the 6-way plug will be made easier by using a junction box such as # 38656. This box mounts to the trailer frame and serves as a connection point between the trailer's original wiring and the new 6-way. Also you will want some Deka jacketed 2 wire, 10 gauge, brake wire # 10-2-1 to run the brake output circuit from the junction box to the brake assemblies as well as some Deka 16-gauge bonded 4-wire...
