Video Transcript for Review of Optronics Trailer Wiring - 7 Way Round RV Style Trailer Connector To Blade - A7WCB

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a real quick look at this seven-way round RV style trailer connector. This seven-way round plug is going to let you connect your trailer to your seven-way round blade connector of your tow vehicle. And this features a durable ABS plastic housing and the interlock system is going to lock in place to keep your connection secure. The oversized finger tabs are going to allow you to easily grip the plug during disconnections.

And I wanted to point out a few things here. On this end, on this side here of this connector, we have these two set screws that's going to loosen and tighten this insert. So when you begin to run your wires through this connector, you obviously want to loosen these screws up and that's going to allow that insert to move out of the way. So then you can begin to run your wires through there and then you can just tighten these two screws back up and that will in turn tighten up that insert and that's going to close, that's going to close up against the wires that you run through here, giving you a nice, tight, secure fit. So that's going to keep out dust and moisture out of those connection points.

And then I wanted to point out this other screw that we have here on the other end on top, that's going to allow this connection point to actually come out of the housing. So you're gonna run your wires through, get this portion out and make your connections and then put it back into the housing and then tighten the screw. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy.

Thank you for joining me.

I was expecting blade connectors as shown in the pictures and video and that is the main reason I purchased this item. Instead it had screw connectors.

Thanks for letting us know! I will have our customer service team reach out to you about this.

Works great, easy to install



by:

Parts arrived quickly and were very good quality. I will definitely use etrailer.com for all my trailer supplies.



by:

I was hoping for the terminal blade connectors, like the video shows, instead of the screw type connectors that I got. The blade connectors seem to be more reliable. Still, it's a quality plug, it's installed and it works. Thank you.



by:

It would have been very helpful if the item description would have stated that the trailer connector was equipped with "Spade Contacts" and require Spade Connectors, and/or illustrate this in a picture, and provide those connector as part of the package. It would have saved a lot of time in making a second order to acquire the Spade Connectors.



by:

Perfect fit to change our trailer from a 5 pin to a 7 pin with added capabilities. we are long time etrailer customer and they always ship fast and have affordable prices to suit our needs.

Perfect fit. Easy to use. Great product. Using this to help trickle charge a battery for the trailer winch.

We have an older 5th wheel and needed to change out the connector to match up with our new tow vehicle. The connection worked out perfectly!

Yeah a part like this does not come with written instructions. I recommend taking a look at the review video we have below.

Works perfect and has been holding up in the weather here in new England



by:

Used this as a plug for my portable 12V air compressor to facilitate access to power, rather than clips to battery. As usual, over the past several years etrailer is my go-to store for all trailer & towing needs. Excellent variety, price and prompt service. Keep up the good work..............

We installed the lights on a trailer we were selling. Installation went smooth, lights worked great.We install the trailer plug on a 12V compressor so we could power it from our trailer hook up and it works great also. You are our go-to trailer supply store.



by:

Wired it in and it works. Not much more to say. Works on my buddy's 2006 F-150 and on my 2003 Dodge Neon (yeah...you heard that right) and also on my 2016 Sierra Denali.



by:

Good quality.



by:

Easy to wire and the hard mounted contacts solved the intermittent connection issue I was having with the previous connector that had floating contacts.



by:

works great



by:

Had to replace a 7 pin on an RV that got sheered by previous owner. The video on how to replace and the part made it very easy to change the connector. Saved a bundle doing it ourselves.

  • Options for 16 Gauge Wire to Power a 12 Volt Spot Sprayer in Bed of 2012 Ford F-150
    We carry different types of 16 gauge wire. We have bonded 4-Wire, # 16-4B-1, jacketed 4 wire, # DW03240-1, bonded 3-Wire, # 16-3B-1, and single wire # 16-1-1. Each of these are available in increments of 1 foot. So if you needed 8 feet you would enter 8 in the quantity box for an 8 foot length of wire. I would over estimate it because it is better to have too much wire than not enough. You also might be interested in some heat shrink tubing # DW05744-10 to keep the splices water tight.

  • Brake Controller Has Power But Trailer Brakes Do Not Work
    There are some tests you can do to determine where the problem is: brake controller, truck, or trailer. First, in the truck cab you will need to sever the blue wire several inches from the back of the controller. Then use a circuit tester such as # PTW2993 to test the end of the blue wire coming out of the controller. It should only have power when you apply the manual override or brake pedal. If it shows power at idle, then there is something wrong with the controller and it will need...

  • Solution for Needing to Adapt 4-Way Round to 7-Way
    Since there isn't an adapter available to convert the 4-way to a 7-way your best option would be to cut off the 4-way and wire it to a 7-way connector like part # A7WCB. This way your trailer will not require an adapter and everything would work.

  • Determining Wire Functions on Trailer with Non-Standard Wire Colors
    Since the wiring on your trailer doesn't use the standard colors the best method for determine their function is to simply apply 12V power to each one to see which lights they activate. Once you determine the function for each of the wires you will just need to connect them to the corresponding terminal on the 7-Way connector. I have attached a wiring diagram for a 7-Way that you can use for reference.

  • Replacement Trailer Connector For 1995 Ford F-150
    I am not sure if you need the replacement connector for the vehicle side of your 1995 Ford F-150 or if you need the trailer connector that would plug into the F-150, so I will give you some options for both of them. You can use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to check the wires by function when installing a connector. If the connector you need is on the vehicle side and you determine it is a 6-way, I recommend part # PK12720. This is a plastic 6-pole round pin socket that would be...

  • Plug-And-Play Trailer Connector for 2005 Chevy Silverado
    A 5 pole round connector is really rare, with the 7-way, 6-way and 4-pole flat being the most common. Most trucks that come with an OEM trailer connector will come with a 7-way. A 6-way is sometimes found on horse trailers, and a 4-pole is the basic connector used for smaller trailers that supplies lighting circuits only. I've edited a photo for you showing an example of the plug and socket (or trailer and vehicle ends) of each of these connectors. I'd recommend fitting your truck out...

  • How to Determine the Functions of Trailer Wires to Install a New 7-Way Connector
    The easiest way of determining the functions of the wires on your trailer is to apply power to each one individually using a separate 12 volt battery and see what lights up. Then all you have to do is label the wires and attach them to a trailer side 7-Way such as # A7WCB. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. Since there is no standard for wire color and function the wires will have to be tested to determine the functions.

  • 12v Pin on 7-way Trailer Connector on 2020 Ford F350 Not Putting Out Power
    A few years ago, Ford started equipping their trucks with the so-called 'smart' trailer connectors. The 12 volt feed on the trailer connector won't supply power unless the following conditions are met: • Ignition is on with vehicle running • Vehicle senses that a trailer is plugged in • The brake pedal has been pressed at least once during the current ignition cycle I wasn't able to find how the vehicle 'knows' whether a trailer is plugged in, it could be looking for a draw from a trailer...

  • Trailer Wiring Diagram for a 7-Way Trailer Side Connector
    The problem that you are going to run into no matter what 7-Way you want to put on your trailer is that the color of the wires used is not standardized. Trailer manufacturers or people who rewire their trailers at any point can use any color they have laying around. You have to go by function, and then follow our wiring FAQ diagrams which I have linked for you. The colors that we mention are the most used but are by no means definitive. If your old 7-Way is still attached you can just...

    The Pollak 7-pole round pin part # PK11700 is not compatible with Pollak 7 and 4-pole connector # HM40975 because it has blade style pins. What I recommend is you change your trailer connector to a 7-Way blade connector part # A7WCB. You will also need a wiring harness like # PK11998 to install the 7/4-Way connector. It plugs into the back of the 4/7-Way. The connector mates with RV-style socket to form a weather tight seal. -Red - Left Turn and Stop - 14 gauge -White - Ground - 10 gauge -Blue...

  • Parts Needed to Make Shorter 7-Way Male to 7-Way Male Adapter
    To make an adapter like you are looking for would require the part # H20043 which is a 7-way with 4 feet of wires that you could then wire to a 7-way male like part # A7WCB. The # H20043 could be shortened to whatever length you needed as well. I attached a chart that shows the wiring colors for the # H20043 plus a diagram for a typical 7-way to help you wire up the adapter.

  • Troubleshooting Right Turn and Running Lights on Trailer Towed by 2007 Ford F150
    I would recommend starting at the 7-way connector at the rear bumper of your truck. Use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 and activate the right turn signal. Test the pin in the 3:00 position. The tester should flash with the turn signals. When the brake pedal is pressed, this pin should light up the tester as well. Repeat the test on the pin in the 9:00 position which is the left turn/brake and the pin in the 11:00 position, which is the running/ marker lights. Check the pins for excessive...

  • Is Trailer Battery Being Able to Backfeed to Truck Battery a Problem
    In order for your truck battery to be able to charge your trailer battery it will have to have a connection to it that is going to have voltage like you tested. What you have is normal and the only possible downside would be if your trailer battery is basically dead and your truck battery ends up draining itself (if left connected for a long time) trying to charge it. When two batteries are connected they will seek to equalize the voltage between them. Some truck 12 volt accessory circuits...

The positive wire would from the pump will need to run to the 12v power pin and the ground wire will need to run to the ground pin.

  • Adapter to Convert 7-Way Blade Style Connector on Vehicle to 7-Way Round Pin Connector on Trailer
    It sounds like your trailer has a 7-way round pin connector. For an adapter, I'd suggest part # PK12727. The adapter would plug into the existing 7-way on your truck, and provide a 7 round pin female connector for the plug on your trailer. You might also consider removing the existing 7-pin connector from the trailer, and replacing it with the 7-way blade plug like part # A7WCB. The 7-way round pin is getting fairly close to being obsolete. The 7-way blade connector is much more prevalent. I'll...

  • No Trailer Connection on Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller 90195 on a 2000 Toyota Tundra
    I would start by inspecting the connector on your trailer and the vehicle to make sure there is not corrosion in the connector which could be causing a bad or weak connection. If there is corrosion in the trailer side connector, you would need to replace it with 7-way Connector, part # A7WCB. For the replacement vehicle side connector, you would need Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole, part # 30717. For future use, I would recommend using Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, part # 11755,...

The Roadmaster Tow Dolly couples to a 2 inch hitch ball and does come with the wiring for the lights and brakes. You will need to purchase the appropriate connector for the wiring so that it will be compatible with the connector on your RV.

  • Can Vehicle 7-Way Connector Power a Light Duty Boat Trailer Winch with 11-Ampere Draw
    The 40-amp circuit on your 7-way is really intended for delivering only a modest current to maintain an already-charged trailer battery while you're driving. It is not really intended for operating a power-hungry item such as a winch. A safer option and one that will let the winch work at its fullest capacity is a winch wiring kit like # BDW20307 that includes heavy 6-gauge wiring and connectors. You might refer to the linked article on wiring winches. Since I do not know the specifics...

    Though that 7-way isn't a part we offer so I can't confirm it's viability, what you will need to do is just cut off your 4-way and attach its wires to the 7-way. For trailer side 7-way connectors we offer, such as # A7WCB, if you are looking at it from the front, the pin in the 1 o'clock position is tail/running lights, 3 o'clock is left turn/stop, 5 o'clock is ground, and 9 o'clock is right turn/stop.

    The best long-term wiring solution for connecting your vehicle that has a 7-way and your trailer that has a 5-pole flat is to install a 7-way male plug on the trailer wiring. This lets you avoid adapters like # 787196 which can become unreliable over time. We have parts like # PK12706, # A7WCB and # A7WCB (and others) shown on the linked page that connect to the trailer's existing wiring to give you a plug that directly matches the 7-way on your Pilot.

    The easiest way to wire the battery for your winch will be to use the 7 way connector on your vehicle if you have one on your 2006 GMC Truck. You can get a 7 way trailer connector like part # A7WCB and use the Jacketed 2 Wire, part # 10-2-1, to connect a wire for the power and a wire for the ground in the connector. You will then run the ground wire, or white wire, to the negative terminal on the secondary battery and run the power lead, black wire, to the positive terminal on the battery....
