Expert Answers about Epicord

  • Adapter and Re-Wiring Kit for Lance Truck Camper with Round Pin 7-Way Plug
  • A junction box/7-way plug kit like Epicord # 277-000141 or # ET7WK lets you convert the camper to match the 7-way RV blade type connector format. This avoids the extra connection points and potential trouble spots from using separate adapters. These items use different wire colors so be sure to follow the wiring guide for the specific kit you select. The existing wires on the camper will need ring terminals like # 44-5310A (for 12 and 10 gauge wires) and # DW05702-1 (for 16 and 14 gauge...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for 7-Way with Only 5 Wires
  • I've attached a diagram for you with function locations. Your left turn and stop are what will need to be connected for the flashers to work. These are found on the left and right side blades of your 7-way connectors. I recommend using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to check your wiring functions on your lights. It sounds like you have a running/parking light, turn signal/stop, and ground but the colors are not typical. My recommendation because your wiring colors are not standard...

  • Troubleshooting 7-Way Trailer Wiring with Colors That Don't Match Functions
  • Wiring by function is the route to go for your situation. This is done by testing each wire of your trailer individually. The easiest way is to use a 12V battery and connect the negative terminal to the trailer's ground on the frame and then use the positive terminal with a jump wire to connect to each individual wire. One wire in your 7-way will be the ground wire. You will want to find this one first because it will cause a spark if you connect the battery to it. You can trace...

  • Recommended 30-Amp Receptacle To Hardwire To RV
  • I recommend the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet # 277-000137. The center to center distance for the mounting holes is 2-7/16 inches. If you need a power cord I recommend the Epicord RV Power Cord # 277-000148. This cord has the RV power cord with a handle. When hardwiring the cord to your RV the Black wire is the hot power lead, the White is neutral, and the green wire is used for the ground.

  • What is Needed to Tow a M105A2 Military Trailer with a 2013 Dodge Durango?
  • To convert your M105A2 military trailer to a 7-blade, I would recommend using the Epicord 7-Way with Junction Box # 277-000141. This makes the conversion simple and you don't have to worry about wiring the connector itself. You'll also need some ring terminals like # 44-5310A and some loom clamps like # A0500. The wires in the junction box are color coded as indicated below. Military wiring is typically not color-coded, so you may need to use a circuit tester like # ALL640595 and a 12V...

  • How to Hook a Cargo Trailer Up to Shore Power
  • In order to wire your cargo trailer for both 12 volt DC and 110 volt AC power you would need to install a AC/DC distribution panel and power converter which we currently do not offer. You would then wire the 12 volt power to the converter along with all of your 110 volt outlets. In order to hook up to shore power you would first need to install a power inlet like the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet part # 277-000138. Once the power inlet is installed you would then need an electrical...

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Power Cord to Plug a Trailer/RV into Shore Power
  • To replace the power cord that goes from the shore power receptacle at a camp site to the RV you will need to know the amperage rating for both. Most shore power receptacles are 30 amp, some are 50. Rarely you will see a 15 amp. The different amperage ratings require different connector types so even if you are not sure what the RV has you can look at the outlet. Cord # 277-000149 is a 30 amp to 30 amp so the end that plugs into an outlet has two slanted flat pins and one round ground...

  • 30-Amp RV Power Outlet and Power Cord
  • It sounds like you're interested in installing a 30-amp RV outlet like # DG30VP, along with a cover plate like # DG52399PB, so that you can use a separate power cord such as # A10-3025ED90. This 25-foot cord has a 30-amp male plug on one end to match the outlet and a 30-amp female twist-lock connector on the other end. This female connector is shown in the linked photo. The cord you referenced, part # 277-000149, has these same connectors but it is 36-feet long. If you have a different...

  • Can 7-Way Junction Box 277-000141 Be Used to Charge Trailer Battery
  • If there happened to be a 12 volt keyed power source in the circuits of the # 277-000141 you could use it for the isolation solenoid # TR118665. Essentially you would need to have the 12 volt circuit of the vehicle already be only active when the key is on. Which if that were the case you wouldn't need the solenoid realistically. If the 12 volt circuit of your truck's 7-way is active all the time you would need to install the solenoid on that circuit and that would get the circuit active...

  • Operation of AC Unit and Other Outlet From 2000 Watt Portable Generator
  • We don't carry any 20 amp power inlets. I recommend you upgrade to the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 or black # 277-000138. This will work well with a 2000 watt generator like the A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit - Senci Motor - Portable - Gas - 120V # 289-SUA2000I. This combination will allow you to run the interior plugs but not at their max simultaneously. You would need to consider adding the second generator in parallel # 289-SUA2000I-2...

The Black wire in the junction box is the one that will carry the 12V power. Just simply use a ring terminal like part # 44-5310A and run 10 Gauge Wire # 10-1-1 to the positive terminal on your battery. The 4 wires that are currently on your trailer and tow vehicle are only for the lights and are not...

  • Wiring Diagram for Home Made Trailer
  • I've linked an article on trailer wiring that includes a diagram you might find helpful. One solution to help wire everything together is to use a junction box with your trailer's 7-way connector, like # 277-000141. This way you can run all of your trailer's wires to the box instead of to the back of the connector. To wire you brakes you'll want to use 10 gauge wiring # 10-1-1. For the lights you can use 16 gauge, # 16-1-1. Both are sold by the foot. When looking into the back...

  • Replacement 50 Amp RV Power Cord
  • It's hard to say whether the issue is with your cord or power source. The source could be tested but I recommend having a professional do this. On the other hand buying a new cord to test is likely less expensive and easier. If I had to guess I'd lean towards the cord being the issue since it works with the 30 amp adapter on it. As for which cord you really can't go wrong with either. Both the Epicord, part # 277-000151, and Mighty Cord, part # A10-5025ED90, are good products and...

  • Wiring Needed to Rewire a Trailer for Lights and Electric Brakes
  • Both the # A40W5B and # W002290 have a blue wire that is only 5 feet long. Plus, the blue wire is only 18 gauge and 20 gauge, respectively. So these are not going to work for your application. What you're going to want to use is Bonded 4 Wire # 16-4B-1 which is sold by the foot. This will provide the four 16 gauge wires to run from the junction box, part # 277-000141, to your trailer's lights. Then for the brakes you will want a 10 gauge wire, # 10-1-1, which is also sold by the...
