Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole Vehicle End Trailer Connector - 30717

Average quality part, would be nice to include a mount but ended up going the extra mile and used a hole saw to install it in my van’s bumper out of harms way. Would be easily damaged if mounted near the hitch.

Item # 18138
Mounting Bracket for 7-Way
$10.02
is the mounting bracket that works with this wiring.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/01/2021

Installed the wiring harness for 2021 Toyota Tacoma. Everything went together just as noted in the instruction.

Joe at etrailer was able to provide this solution and saved me literally hundreds of dollars to have a reputable place put in a new harness onto my AWD MKX. Thank you!

This product works as expected. There is not too much to the installation, just plug it in properly and mount the ground wire. I did not find an easy way to mount this to my wife's Odyssey, or to the trailer hitch (item# 75270). Luckily, I do prototype design and manufacturing. So I came up with my own solution. I designed and made my own bracket to mount the 7 pole to the trailer hitch. It works like a charm, and looks great!

by:

I really appreciate you following up on my order. The information and videos will help when I drop the harness and circuit breaker off at my local shop. When I went to them originally with my problem I couldn't answer all their questions. With the parts in hand they should be able to convert my four prong to the seven prong plug used on my new trailer. Thanks also to Craig at CampInn for directing me to your site and the parts they are using in the construction of my trailer.



- 30717
by:

this connector along with the short L bracket and the mount bracket- gave me a nice connector to my hitch. Though I used the short connector and did have to slightly bend it to allow the 4 to 7 pole connector to fit. If Id bought the long L bracket-- It could have worked-- but bending a little worked well.



- 30717
by:

I was really skeptical about this adapter but for no reason! Installed in about 10 minutes using etrailer mounting bracket, dielectric grease, a couple zip ties, and some electric tape. Worked perfectly the first time I tested it on my trailer.

Yes, very nicely designed wiring harness. Works Great....

Kyle was extremely helpful in not only finding the right hitch but the accessories I needed to go with it. Would definitely recommend etrailer.com to all my friends. Prices were excellent too!

I wanted to show the custom installation. I did not want it under the bumper



- 30717
by:

Works great. Easy install. It's more sensitive to dirt than I expected, but that might be common to all trailer connections, I don't know. I noticed on a trip that my brake controller said NC (no connection), and I didn't have trailer brakes, which meant my blinkers probably hadn't been working, either. I got pretty worried, and looked at it and only saw just a little black gunk on one blade. But cleaning that small amount of black gunk off solved the problem. So far, so good!


Comments
Thanks for your business and your review, Zach! Using dielectric grease like 11755 on your connections increases reliability and the life of the connection by preventing corrosion and sealing the connection.

by:

This is a great product . The price was $18.00 dollars cheaper than some I found online. I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 pickup, this adapter will change the 4 pole( which is made on my truck) to a 7 pole( which is on the trailer I will be using). The product connected, and bolted up to my truck bumper very easy. E trailer is the best.

Im still enjoying this product, Ive used it several times, still workingwell

Has been working great since purchased and installed 3 months ago. Used for several different trailers and long distance trips. Easy to install. Had to be slightly creative with the attachment of the ground. Did not see a reason to have a ground on this portion since everything else is already grounded, however would not work without grounding to the frame. Only used the four way connection and taped remaining three back. Hope for good things to come with this produce. Highly recommend this product.


Comments
Had the same issue with the ground kurt. Almost gave up on it until I read your post. Thanks.

by:

I was surprised how fast the shipping was and the price for the product was very reasonable. I did not mind that there was no mounting plate for the adapter because I wanted something that would hook up to the camper when I need to use it and then take it off afterwards. I know I will be coming to etrailer for any other trailer or camper needs that may come up.

could not be happier with the purchase that I made

Used this adaptor to replace the factory tow package flat 4-pin connector on my 2019 Toyota Highlander. It's sad that Toyota is still using a cheap flat 4-pin connector on their factory tow package for a vehicle rated to tow 5,000 LBS. Would it really have cost that much extra for them to just use a round 6- or 7-pin connector to begin with? The installation was pretty straightforward using a new mounting bracket for the round 7-pin connector in place of the existing 4-pin bracket. I hooked up the white ground wire to the mounting screw for the new bracket after sanding paint off the bracket and nut and using dielectric grease for the ground wire and 4-pin connections. Spent some time re-routing and zip-tying wires and taped up the 3 wires on the adaptor that I won't be using. Nice clean installation. Trailer running lights, turn signals and brake lights work great. A quality product delivered in a timely manner by etrailer.com.

I was wanting to pull an enclosed trailer that has 7 pole plug in, with my vehicle that only has 4 pole plug in, without messing with the wires at this time, so I ordered the 4 pole to 7 pole adapter for this purpose. When item arrived I plugged adapter in, checked lights and on my way I went. all the extra wiring is there when I decide to add a brake controller. Now I can unplug the adapter and still use my 4 pole plug in. The item was well put together with tight wiring, price was reasonable, the shipping was smooth and the website is outstanding with plenty of instructions, wiring diagrams and the how to videos are a real plus on wiring up trailers. Thanks for an informative website and great product.

    If you currently have a working 4-Way plug then using the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit for Trailer Brake Controller Installation Kit part # ETBC7L kit is a great way to get a powered 7 Way connector on the rear of your 2014 Audi Q5.

    The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1225D that you referenced could physically be installed so that it uses 12V power from the 7-Way connector on your truck, but it's not going to allow for ideal operation.

The Echo will not interfere with this circuit.

The black wire on said adapter would need to be attached to the vehicle's battery but I do recommend a higher rated 40 amp fuse/circuit breaker, part # 9510.

I would attach the white ground wire to an existing grounding point or the vehicle frame even if you do not intend on adding a brake controller (which is what the other wires are for).

You will simply plug in the 4-way and then connect the white ground wire with ring terminal to your vehicle frame. The ground needs a bare metal to metal connection free of debris and corrosion. The other three wires on the adapter can be left disconnected. The only thing to double check since you have a boat trailer is that you don't...
