Video Transcript for Pollak Wiring PK12706 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number PK12706. This is the Pollack Black Plastic 7-Pole RV Style Trailer Connector. This is a standard 7-pole plug. It's going to connect your trailer to your socket on your tow vehicle. Made from a black plastic construction, so it's going to eliminate rusting. It's also going to enhance the appearance.

The interior design is made from a non-corroding, shock resistant system. The terminals are reinforced, so it's going to eliminate shorting out. The center pin will accept up to 8-gauge wiring. Here on the rear we have the vinyl insert. That's just going to help keep out dirt and moisture. It's also going to feature that dual grip system, so it's going to be very easy to remove the plug from the socket.

It's also going to ensure that the connector is plugged into the socket using the safety latch system which is just this little raised portion here on top. This is going to be color coded, so you have RVI Standards. To gain access to the connectors, you just loosen up this set screw here on top. It's going to bring this interior piece out, run your wires through here, all the way through the casing, connect them with this portion pulled out, reinsert this, and then reset or tighten back up the set screw here on top. That's going to do it for part number PK12706. This is the Pollack Black Plastic 7-Pole RV Style Trailer Connector.

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. 137963


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!!!!

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.

Seems to be a well made product that should make it easily replaceable for me. The usual excellent delivery and service from etrailer that I have come to expect. 143321


It works very well. I am going to have to replace the wiring itself soon, as I dragged the wiring harness on a bad hookup. MY FAULT, not the connector.

The plug appears well made, was competitively priced, shipping charges were reasonable and it arrived quickly!! Additionally to help with trailer wiring installations and repairs ETrailer has very nice trailer wiring diagrams for the various harnesses out there (4, 5, 6 and 7 pole/pin/blade connectors etc). The diagrams are a great resource & I refer to them frequently and had "assumed" they are the accepted standards for the industry. The plug pins on this product are marked with a number and a color. While the numbers correspond to the ETrailers diagram the colors do not. Not a big deal but one needs to pay a little more attention during the install. 227939

I am glad I came upon this site. The staff is friendly courteous and helpful. Since I live in Canada it is a big problem if I had to send items back across the border to etrailer if the items were not what I thought they were. The short videos that etrailer provides with each product is extremely helpful in determining to purchase or not. Thank you for that feature. Knowing a little about video production and the costs associated with that, it must cost etrailer a pile to give us (the consumers) what appears to be a simple addition on their site Thanks again guys/gals 396627

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 . 312561

I have this same plug (PK 12706) on the Boat Trailer and it works perfect, and never disconnects or shorts. Now I'm putting this same plug on the Snowmobile Trailer. I'll let you know if I have any problems. Anything to do with trailer issues I always contact eTrailer Company first. Thanks, Ron 236504

The item purchased more than surpassed the requirements, it will defiantly out do the original plug, the only thing that I did different was to coat the internal wires with some liquid electrical tape to protect against shorts and the same on the side the cable goes through, I encourage everyone to look at their old 7 pin plugs for wear, mine was defiantly in need of replacement, just make sure to use the PK12706 because it seals up better, great job erailer 15100

My only complaint with this product would be that the wiring on my trailer did not match the color coding that is listed on the inside of the adapter (where the wires attach). In fairness, I removed a 4-point adapter and wired up this 7 point to the trailer. A little Google searching for what the different pins do matched it up with what the adapter was looking for and I had it working. 187270

- PK12706

by: Dana H.06/30/2015

Color coding on the screw terminals was incorrect. I needed to match up to my trailer diagram for proper connections. Housing is a little mishapen so small gaps, though I don't think this will be an issue. Multiple set screws or a more rigid housing would probably solve this issue. Cable retaining clamp is very sturdy. Only question is longetivity but at the price I can manage. 208304

by: Stuart03/25/2013

Purchased to replace the existing trailer connector. This item doesn't seem very sturdy though. The set screw on the plug end is very small and doesn't seat properly into the base, making it possible for the connector piece to possibly remain in the vehicle female plug end. I'm holding off on installing in case I can find a better/sturdier replacement. Shipping was quite fast. 72444

- PK12706

by: Russell F.11/07/2012

Well-designed. The blade setup makes it much easier to use ring terminals (just bend the end of each brass blade and take off the washer), giving complete confidence that wires won't become disconnected even if they get yanked a bit. Nice seal at the rear. Can be a bit difficult to slide the housing over the cable, but add some grease and it should work like a charm. 58964

I'd like to express my appreciation to etrailers, I had an issue with my connector due to the fact that it drug for 13 miles at speeds of 55 miles per hour. They not only had the part I needed but made sure I received it promptly so I wouldn't be without trailer lights for more than 24 hours. I highly recommend them and I have found my new trailer part supplier. 175317

Replaced this exact connector after years of it being abused and dragged endless miles behind the truck after being ripped out accidently.

by: Jim B.06/23/2011

Product is well made, easy to disassemble. When making up wire connections it's better to use ring lugs as shown in the video. Would have preferred terminals that accepted wire conductors directly but this isn't that big of an issue. Overall well satisfied with connector. 17804

- PK12706

by: Potatopirate05/07/2011

Great price, good product. The only thing I noticed about this connector is the fact that the colors are labeled next to the terminals and two of the colors don't match schematics. I hooked mine up according to the schematic available at e-trailer and it works correctly. 13053

- PK12706

by: David C05/02/2016

Great item, just remember that GM typically does not tie down the 12V for the trailer connectors. In late model trucks its coiled and taped under the master cylinder. It ties to the 40 amp lug on the front of the main fuse box on the drivers side engine compartment. 248147

- PK12706

by: William M. Huffman06/11/2012

The product appears to be well made and is easy to use but the terminal for the "right turn" wire is labeled with the incorrect color. Do not rely on the color coding on the connector but rely upon a wiring diagram for the correct location in connecting wires. 43653

This product is a good replacement, the only consideration is that there is only one set screw that holds the insert to the body, to make it sit flush and secure, i had to pull the wires tight. I think the next one I buy will be all metal type. 203280

Awesome concept, but poor quality, the connector pulls apart when taking off and does not easily attach since the lower part of the connector is "flexy" ... need to try some super glue to see it it works better 120949

  • Figuring out what color wire goes to what function is sometimes quite confusing. I have attached a diagram which covers both the most common wire colors designated for a seven pin trailer connector and a seven pin vehicle connector, referencing the wiring colors for each blade and what each blade is responsible for. If you look up part # H20046, you will see about 1/3 of the way down the page a chart that will give you a wiring guide. It gives you the color of the wire and how it relates...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights Not Working and No Power at the 7-Way on a 2000 GMC Yukon
  • There could be a couple of causes leading to the lighting malfunction you are experiencing. The first things I would check are the ground connections on the vehicle side 7-Way, trailer side connector, and the grounds for the lights on the trailer. On most trailers, the lights ground through the mounting studs. Make sure that at each ground location, there is no dirt or corrosion. A bad ground connection is one of the leading causes of lighting malfunctions. You can also probe the wires...

  • How To Get The Trailer Dome Lights Working On My Enclosed Trailer Connected To A 2010 Ford F150
  • If you are looking at the front of the 7-Way connector the # 4 terminal which is at the 1:00 position will be the 12 volt power connection. If you do not have power run to the # 4 terminal on the 7-Way vehicle connector you will want to run a 10 gauge wire like the #10-1-1, from the positive post on the vehicle battery through a 40 amp circuit breaker like the # PK54540, to the # 4 terminal on the vehicles 7-Way connector. This will give you 12 volt power to the 7-Way. You will then...

  • Camper Lights Do Not Work When New 7-Way Connector on Camper is Plugged Into Vehicle
  • Sounds like you have eliminated your truck as being the problem. With your truck plugged into the trailer you will want to use a circuit tester, like the Quickee Tester, part # 3808, and check each terminal on the new 7-Way connector on your trailer to make sure they are working properly. Looking at the front of the 7-Way trailer connector, make sure the number 1 terminal (ground), at the 5 oclock position on the connector, is grounded properly to the trailer. Also, make sure to test...

  • Instructions to Wire Dump Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • I would use the RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK12706, which you reference, and install the wires in the proper locations in the 7-Way connector. Our wiring page, see link, has photos that detail the wiring configuration of the 7-Way RV trailer connector for you to check out. You will need to test the functions of each wire using a 12 volt battery to determine their function. Once you know the function, you can use our trailer connector wiring diagram to make the proper connections.

  • Instructions for Completely Rewiring a 14 Foot Tandem Axle Dump Trailer
  • Rewiring your 14 foot dump trailer is pretty straight forward. I would start with a 20 ft. Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness, # A20WB, to provide wiring for the stop turn and tail lights on your trailer. We have a video detailing how to install this type of harness for you to review, see link. Next, I would use the RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK12706, and remove the 4-Way connector from the 4-Way harness and install the wires in the proper locations in the 7-Way connector. Our...

  • How To Wire Separate Turn Signals And Backup Lights On A Trailer With a 4-Flat Connector
  • To wire your trailer for separate turn signals you will need to use the Pollak 7-Pole Trailer Connector, part # PK12706, and the Tow Ready Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter, part # 118158. You will replace the 4-flat on your trailer with the Pollak 7-Way connector. The wiring on your 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe with the 7-way connector will stay as the factory wiring. It will not need to be changed. I am including a picture of the 7-way trailer connector that will show the function...

  • Parts Needed for Installation of Electric Brakes on a Coleman Pop-Up Camper With 8 Inch Wheels
  • The 8 inch diameter wheel on your Coleman Fleetwood pop-up camper is not large enough to accept an electric brake hub and drum assembly. Seven inch brake assemblies like # 23-48 that you selected work with the Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly, item # 8-257-5UC3, which will fit in wheels starting at 10 inches in diameter. You would need to upgrade your wheels and tires to either a 5.30-12 load range c wheel and tire combination, or a 205/65-10 load range c wheel and tire to meet the capacity...

  • Adapting 6-Way Square Wiring for a 2000 Viking Pop-Up to 4-Way Wiring on a Chevrolet Colorado
  • Since you do not need the trailer brake or 12 volt charging functions when towing your pop-up, you would be able to cut off the 6-Way square connector currently on your Viking Pop-up and use a 4-Pole Trailer End Connector, item # 18004, to connect to the 4-Way connector on your 2006 Colorado. I would recommend that you use 7-Way RV connectors, to upgrade your vehicle and trailer wiring for ease of use and to have more universal connectors for towing other trailers. The most universal...

  • Replacing a 5-Pin Trailer Connector on a Trailer with Separate Brake Light and Turn Signal Circuits
  • You can replace the round 5-pin trailer connector on your trailer with a 5-pin flat trailer connector like part # HM47910, but I would recommend replacing the existing connector with a 7-pin round trailer connector like the Pollack 7-Pole Trailer End Connector, # PK12706 or a 4-pin flat connector like part # HM48110. Since the trailer does not have brakes, there is really no need to keep using a 5-pin connector. You would also not have to purchase or use an additional adapter and you could...

  • Wiring a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 1998 Jayco Pop Up Camper
  • Yes, you can use the Pollack 7-Way Trailer Connector, # PK12706, on your 1998 Jayco Pop Up Camper. The first step is to verify the functions of the wires on your camper. To verify the functions of each wire you can follow the wires along the trailer and see where they end up. You should have two different color wires going into the left and right turn signals and another color going into all of the tail lights. Those will be your turn signal and tail light circuits. The white wire is...

  • Installing Electric Brakes On Wells Cargo Trailer
  • From what you have told me, you already have the lighting circuits connected on your 7-way. You would need to add the brake output circuit and the 12-volt accessory circuit if needed. I have linked you to an FAQ article on trailer wiring that shows how this is done. If the connector on the trailer was damaged, you will need to purchase a new 7-way trailer connector. I would recommend the Pollak Black Plastic, 7-Pole RV-Style Trailer Connector, part # PK12706. I checked the manufacturers...

  • Connecting a Coachman Pop-Up Trialer with 6-Way Square Connector to a Vehicle with a 7-Way RV
  • To use your trailer with a vehicle that has a 7-Way connector installed on it you would be best suited to just use the Pollak Black Plastic, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector - Trailer End, item # PK12706, and hard wire it directly to the wires on the trailer. You will then have the functionality needed to provide power to the trailer brakes and have power to maintain a battery on the trailer if it is so equipped. Another advantage is that you will have no need for an adapter between...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller on a 2006 Ford Expedition
  • On your 2006 Ford Expedition, there should already be a factory installed trailer connector. It will either be a 4-Way flat or a 7-Way blade. If your vehicle has a 4-Way flat, you will need to add Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole, # 37185. On this connector, you would plug your 4-Way into the corresponding plug on the adapter. The remaining wires would need to be hardwired. Take a look under your vehicle behind the driver side rear tire and the bumper for the trailer wiring. There will...

  • Complete Wiring for Lights, Electric Brakes and Controller for a 94 GMC 1/2 Ton Truck and Trailer
  • Lets start with your 1994 GMC 1/2 Ton Truck. You will need to start with the # 118315 4-Way connector. Once the 4-Way is installed, see instructions link, you will need the Brake Controller Installation Kit, # ETBC7, and a brake controller. I recommend the P3 Brake Controller, # 90195, which is one of the best controllers we carry. We have detailed instructions for installation of the controller and the wiring kit, see links, and we have installtion videos of a brake controller and wiring...

  • Right Tail Light Stays On When Trailer is Unhooked from the Vehicle and Trailer Battery is Removed
  • It sounds like the power from the trailer battery is somehow reaching the right brake and turn signal circuit. The brake and turn signal circuit on the trailer should not be connected to the trailer battery. The first step I would take is to check the wire connections inside of the trailer connector. On a 7-way trailer connector, the pin for the 12V battery power is right next to the pin for the right turn and brake signal. If these two wires are touching, then that will explain why...

  • How to Manually Operate a Slide Out for a Trailer
  • There is a chance that your trailer has a manual override built into it. I would recommend you check with your manufacturer before you try the following steps. The first thing you are going to want to do is find the slide-out motor. The motor is located beneath the slide-out room. Refer to the owners manual for the exact location. Next, you will want to remove the brake assembly from the motor. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws that connect the brake assembly to the motor. Do not...

  • Converting an Existing 9-pole Trailer Connection Plug to a 7-Way Connection
  • We do not supply a 9-pole to a 7-blade connector converter, but you can definitely convert your existing trailer connector to a 7-way blade connecter that will work with your truck. To do this you will need a replacement 7-blade connector like # PK12706. You will then disassemble the existing trailer connector and install the 7-way blade style connector. When you take apart the 9-pole connection point the functions should be labeled, and you will want to match up functions to the 7-way...

  • 4-Way Flat to 6-Way Square Adapter for a Coleman Camper
  • No, the adapter you selected is for the Jayco camper only. The Coleman camper is going to have a different wiring pattern and unfortunately will not work with the Jayco adapter. Does your camper have a battery for the accessories? If so then your 4 way will not charge the battery when in tow so you may want to consider wiring the vehicle to the correct plug or rewiring both with new connectors. I have posted links below to the items you may want to consider if your 4 pole connector is factory.
