Your wasting your time looking for a better company to do biz with, etrailer has it all under one roof, quality merchandise, bend over backward staff going the extra mile, bodacious customer service and Im sure I left something out here, trust me, try etrailer youll be blown away. They are setting the example in the industry.

Using this product to replace inputs from a straight-4 hookup plus add'l wires from a supplemental light system for my truck. Works exactly as advertised; saves me a lot of hassle. Installer must have some rudimentary electrical-connection knowledge. You must also know which of the seven contacts does what for your vehicle to install this correctly; should be in your car/truck's manual. Four instead of 5 stars just because the entrance/exit hole for wires needs supplementation to make it water-tight. Product is easily worth the money and functions exactly as one would expect.

I wanted a plugin connector wired only to 12v 30A pins to connect my Smittybilt air compressor during off road trips and occasional home use without getting under the hood. This connector works perfectly.

do not follow the labeling on the back of the plug the colors do not match. had to do a google image search for a pin out of a trailer plug.


Comments
Thank you for your review! You do bring up a good point. While the wiring setup displayed on the connector is the most common wire colors, it is important to note that some instances can vary so you want to connect the wires by function rather than colors. The function diagram is listed in the photos above as well as this attached helpful article for you to check out.

The color printed on the post didn't line up. wired it up like plug showed and didn't work. I went ahead and did it one by one with a meter and know it works can only give this one stars. My truck has been hauling 5th wheels and travel trailers and varies other trailers with NO problems what so ever so I know it wasn't my truck. All in All the product did work maybe I got just got the bad one won't stop me from buying from etrailer

There are a couple different color codes for trailer wiring, so its recommended that a trailer connector be wired by function, not wire color. Ill link to a help article that shows the two most common color codes.

The quality is good with and I am happy with that. Just do not follow the wiring labels on it. Half the listed colors are incorrect. I made the mistake and had to rewire after going to etrailer website instructions and getting the correct wire locations. Works good now though. Other than that very happy with it.


Comments
The colors on this plug are for RV Industry Standard wiring. Traditional Wiring colors are different. That said, the individual terminals are in the same order as far as which terminal goes to tail lights, which terminal goes to right turn signal, etc., regardless of which wiring colors are on your existing harness. Now if only the person who converted the wiring on my sisters horse trailer to 6 blade 7 terminal had followed the color codes of either..... That however, will be corrected this Friday!!!!
-- comment by: Bill J - 08/05/2014

Thanks for the info, and this is exactly why we recommend using a good circuit testers and testing all the wires for the function. Then connect according to the function of the wiring, not by color.

Got my new/used trailer rewired and my '16 Silverado started throwing "check trailer wiring" code ! Trough much research and googling the code I found the factory used the POLLAK 7 pin receptacles . And some 7 pin plug makers were not up to OEM standards . They fit sloppy . So until my new end came I wrapped the sloppy end with electric tape for a snug fit bent tabs out slightly and greased with dielectric grease . That stopped code . When the new end arrived I changed it and seams the problem is solved .

I was having connection issues with a new tow vehicle and our Airstream. The molded connector on the Airstream apparently just wasn’t making a great connection. Cut that one off, put on this Pollak connector, and for the past year haven’t had a single issue. Well worth the effort to replace the original one with this one.

Good plugs. Do just what they should. There are two types of 6 way com to 7 way RV adapters. One with the center post to brakes, the other, brakes circuit to a side post. Not sure which way these a wired but one should be aware of this. RV standard is brakes to the side.

This product was recommended by my GMC dealership for a better connection between vehicle and trailer. I was having many trailer wiring disconnected alarms, which led to my Truck being serviced to find the fault. The Pollak product is very different from the original trailer connection. This appears to be a problem with the newer GMC trucks.

  • What Type of Trailer Wiring Connector to Put on Wiring of Trailer Jack to Easily Power It
    The type of trailer connector you'd need to install on the wiring of the Phoenix Electric Trailer Jack with Remote # UF38-944055 to allow it to plug into a vehicle connector and work would be a 7-way. 7-ways have a circuit designed for 12 volt accessories that runs to the vehicle's positive battery post. This is the pin in the 1:00 position if you were looking into the connector on a vehicle. So you could take the power and ground wire from the powered trailer jack # UF38-944055 and run...

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator For Drum Brakes To Replace Older Atwood 61101 Actuator
    I would be happy to help! You are correct that the Demco 8605001 is a direct replacement for your Atwood 61101 Surge Brake Actuator, but the 8605001 has been discontinued by the manufacturer and replaced with the # DM72VR you mentioned. The key differences between the 8605001 and # DM72VR are that the # DM72VR has a slightly higher weight capacity at 7000lbs and uses an EZ latch coupler mechanism as you mentioned, but will still be a direct replacement for your current actuator.
