I bought this socket for my 2006 Volvo Xc90 to wire in the 4-Pole harness I also purchased from etrailer. Already had a few 7 Blade to 4-Pole adapters from my previous vehicle, and wanted the option of adding a trailer brake wire for a small camper later on so that was the main reason for the purchase. It also went very well with the Hidden Hitch I had already installed, bracket mounted right up to the existing tabs on the hitch. Super quick and easy install, as all of my etrailer purchases have been. Looks great on the truck, and functions great with the 180 Degree cover. 432535

etrailer gave excellent service. Shipping was prompt. Email followup was excellent. I needed a part to hook up to a Silverado 3500 with the wires to the bed already there (taped up at the front of the bed on the driver side) and didn't want to tap into the existing plug on the bumper. The L Shaped bracket is easily detachable so that the plug can be screwed directly into the sheet metal of the truck bed once a hole is cut. However 2 things....the unit comes with nuts and bolts so get ready for a trip to Home Depot to get some sheet metal screws of some sort for most installs in the bed. Second, the holes that the screws must go in are hex shaped which is great for the bolts that come with the unit but not for sheet metal screws so be sure and get screws with a small enough head to countersink into the holes or with a big enough base so as not to sink into the hex shaped holes. 103078

I purchased this 7 blade connector to replace part 47435 (6 pole round to 7 blade (trailer)), which was allowing the whole cable assembly to droop close to the ground, and was fatiguing after four years of use. This new unit was easy to wire and install, however I wish to point out that the molded markings for the various wires (RT, LT, TM, GD, BR, etc.) are exactly backwards from the way the device is supposed to be wired. This was evident when I finished the installation and observed the turn signals were reversed, and nothing else worked (as a result of blown fuses). Once I corrected the wiring, everything works fine. Use the wiring diagram which comes with the instructions and not the molded pin markings on the device. 275789

I installed this receptacle in the side, top rail of my truck to supply power to my 5th wheel trailer. The connectors at the rear are very sturdy, I was able to tighten the connections very tight without fear of them stripping out. Looks like a factory installation! 27853

Great product, shipped promptly. The video on etrailer.com made installation a breeze. Even comes with non-corroding grease for terminal connections. I got stuck as an amateur wire-installer and had to call etrailer.com for some technical advice (didnt have a purple wire or orange wire as all wiring diagrams online showed....) the tech support was super knowledgeable and got me running in no time! 186563

Easy to wire in. Seems that it will be pretty durable. Instructions were good and included a wiring diagram. Only improvement I can offer is that the wiring stamps (ie. LT, RT, GND, AUX, etc) were not readable once you loosened the wire clamps. It would have been much more convenient if the stamps were visible once I loosened the clamps to put the wires in. 88907

Product delivered very quickly even here in Alaska. Had the same item installed on my truck and it had a broken cover plate so needed to replace it. Also found the original was not installed very well and let water into area where wires were terminated. Fixed that problem with the better weather sealing. Thanks for great service and a good product. 303023

Great value. Toyota wanted $235 for the replacement which included an 18" wiring harness with a Weatherpack connector. I cut the Toyota harness at the failed socket and attached the wires to the new socket as shown in diagram. 89557

  • Electric Brake Terminal on 7-Way Connector is Showing Constant 12 Volts Under All Conditions
  • On some vehicles, the key has to be on for voltage to go back to the trailer connector. On others, it does not. An electric brake controller will always send back some minimal voltage to the trailer connector. This is how it senses if there is a trailer connected. But it should not be showing 12 volts all of the time. If it is on the brake pin, 5 oclock position if looking at the face of the 7-Way, then that indicates that there is a short to the brake wire. If the 12 volt power is...

  • How to Clean a 7-Way Trailer Wiring Connector
  • There are several items you might want to try using for removal of corrosion in your 7-way trailer connector, like part # HM48480. White Vinegar A wedge shaped, slip on pencil eraser or art gum eraser Pipe cleaners PB Blaster If the corrosion is light, apply white vinegar with a pipe cleaner followed by scrubbing with the eraser to do the trick. If the corrosion is a bit heavier spray the connector down with PB Blaster first let it sit for a while and repeat. Once the connector...

  • How to Stop Corrosion in The 7-Way RV Style Connector
  • Your best bet to eliminate corrosion in your 7-way connector is to use some Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors, item # 11755. Use this on the wiring connectors inside the connector when installing the connector and occasionally on the connection between the truck and trailer and your corrosion issues will be behind you. The corrosion you are experiencing is from moisture in the air and is prevelent with the RV connectors. The presence of constant 12 volt power creates an atmosphere...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Brakes Not Registering With the Brake Controller
  • I can help you troubleshoot your brake controller error. Sounds like a grounding issue to the brake magnet ground. I would make sure that the ground wire is secured tightly to a clean surface on the frame. If the wire is attached to the body or a surface with an undercoating or rust it can cause a ground problem. I recommend cleaning the area or finding a better grounding spot for the wire. Another option would be to run all the grounds to the front of the trailer where the main ground...

  • Brake Controller Installation on 2004 Honda CRV
  • Honda does not pre-wire the CRV for a brake controller installation, so you will have to run a length of 10 gauge wire from the passenger compartment, through the firewall and engine compartment and under the vehicle to connect to the 7-pole connector at the rear. The brake controller output wire would connect to the # 2 pin on the trailer connector, which is sometimes labeled BLUE.

  • Installing Hopkins Endurance 7-Way Trailer Connector, # HM48480 on a 2000 Chevy Astro
  • Wiring color/function on vehicle wiring differs from manufacturer to manufacturer and even among model years of the same vehicle, so the best way to determine the functions of the vehicle wiring is to test it with a circuit tester like # 3808. Before that, there may have been a short on the trailer wiring that has caused the running lights on your 2000 Chevy Astro to stop working. I recommend taking a look at the fuses to determine if the one for running lights has been blown and that...

  • Recommendation to Extend Factory 7-Way to Fit with New Bumper on 2010 Ram 2500
  • There are a couple of options to extend the factory wiring at the rear of your 2010 Ram 2500 so that it can reach the new connecter opening on the 2015 bumper. The easiest solution is to use a 5th Wheel Wiring Harness like the Curt # C56070. This will plug in-line with your existing factory wiring and provide an extended harness on the other end. The only drawback on this option is that the Curt # C56070 represents the shortest 5th Wheel Harness that we offer at 7 feet long. So you will...

  • What Size Wire Loom Is Recommended for Trailer 7-Way Wiring

  • Can 10 Gauge Wire be Used with Hopkins 7-Way Trailer Wiring Connectors
  • Yes, you can use 10 gauge wire like the part # 10-1-1 (sold by the foot) to wire up the 7-way part # HM48480 or # HM48500. Typically people use 10 gauge wire for the 12 volt accessory, brake output, and ground circuit and then use 12 for the remaining circuits.

  • Converting 4-Pole Trailer Connector to 7-Way
  • If the vehicle has an existing 4-pole trailer connector, and you are wanting to convert it to a 7-way, using an adapter like part # 37185 is your best bet. The adapter would plug directly into the existing 4-pole, with 4 wires remaining. The blue wire would connect to the brake output wire from a brake controller. The black wire would connect to the vehicle battery via a 40 amp breaker like part # 9510, and would be used to maintain a trailer mounted battery, if needed. The white wire...

You will want to find a way to seal that off better, I have heard of people using electrical tape to wrap the connection to prevent water from getting in during wet weather. You may also consider replacing the connector with one like the Hopkins # HM48480, this connector has a foam seal that will help with weather seeping in. Another thing that...

  • Can International 4400 Tow Trailer with Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • Basically you would need to install a brake controller with electric over hydraulic compatibility and a 7-way wired properly and you would be able to accomplish what you are trying to do. The P3 part # 90195 would be a great option that is compatible with that brake style and is one of our best selling controllers because of how well it works. For a vehicle side 7-way we have the part # HM48480 that would need to get wired to your vehicle according to the diagram I attached

  • Can a 1982 Chevy S-10 Be Equipped with a Multitow Trailer Connector at the Front for Flat Towing
  • Technically, you could install any type of connector you wanted to at the front of your 1982 Chevy S-10. The problem would then be you would need a bunch of different extensions, like # HM47055 as an example, to go from the rental truck to the S-10. You would first need to wire the vehicle for lights. You can do this with diodes which would be a good idea since it is a more permanent solution and it sounds like you will be towing the truck often. You can use the Roadmaster Universal...

  • Fit of Curt Wiring Harness for Vehicle-End Trailer Connectors C56229 on 2014 Ram 3500
  • The Curt Wiring Harness for Vehicle-End Trailer Connectors # C56229 is a universal-fit item that will work on any tow-package-equipped vehicle that uses a round U.S. Car type connector for its wiring. This part provides one such round connector on one end and pigtail wire leads on the other for all 7-way functions. This could be used with a 7-way socket like Hopkins # HM48480 which has screw terminals for making connections. All custom-fit wiring items for your 2014 Ram 3500 are...

  • Hopkins 6-Pole Round to 7-Way Blade Adapter Not Compatible with 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Most trailer connectors on vehicles use a standard size for the pins but there are a few out there that do not. That is likely what the issue is. It does not have anything to do with the function of the center pin. The best solution for you is to change the connector on your 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to a 7-Way because it is likely that all the adapters will have the same problem. Since your Jeep already has a 6-Way and the wiring is all there you just have to move the wires from the...

  • Tail Lights on 1992 Ford F-150 Stay On When Connected To Boat Trailer With 7-Way to 5-Flat Adapter
  • If I understand correctly, the tail lights on your 1992 Ford F-150 stay on when you connect your boat trailer to your truck using a 7-way to 5-flat adapter and when the brakes are applied the vehicle tail lights go out. It sounds to me like power is somehow feeding back to the tail light circuits on your truck and there is a short somewhere. To troubleshoot this issue, I would start at the 7 pin connector on your truck with the adapter and boat trailer disconnected. Make sure the connector...

  • Brake Controller and Weight Distribution for a 2000 Chevy Astro and Trail Lite Bantam B19
  • First, for a brake controller, you will need 3 things: a 4-Way trailer wiring harness, an installation kit that includes a 7-Way, and a brake controller. If your 2000 Chevy Astro does not already have a 4-Way then you will start by adding one using # 18252. I have linked a video showing the installation procedure. If your van already has a 4-Way you will not need to add another one. Next you will need the 4- and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. This provides the 7-Way trailer connector...

  • Hardwire Installation of Vehicle Wiring Harness and Brake Controller on 2006 Dodge Ram
  • It sound like you are going to want to double check the installation of the Modulite Ultra Protector Wiring Harness # 119192. For your 2006 Dodge Ram, the vehicle wiring is separate. This means the brake and turn light signals are sent along different wires. Since the Ram has separate wiring, you will want to use the 3-Wire process to install the # 119192. I have attached a wiring diagram to help you better visualize all of these connections. When wiring the # 119192 harness, you will...

  • Fit and Compatibility of 7 Way Trailer Plug on a 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD Access Cab 4X
  • Good news! I can help you find the right 7-way connector for your 2006 Toyota Tacoma. If you have a plug similar to the one I have linked to this page for you, and it isn't damaged too then I recommend the # PK11893. If your factory plug is hardwired directly to the 7-way, then I recommend the # HM40975-11998, this will give you a plug, just in case the 7-way plug were to get damaged again. With this harness you will just want to match function to function and splice the wires to...

  • What Gauge Wires Should be Used with the Hopkins Connector part # HM48480
  • There really isn't a set maximum gauge wire that could be used on the Hopkins Connector part # HM48480. Most people will use 10 gauge wire as the max gauge for the brake output, 12 volt accessory, and ground wires. So you could easily use that gauge or slightly smaller or bigger without a problem.

  • Trailer Wiring Solution for Wiring Up Trailer that Has 8 Wires
  • For that many wires on your trailer you are going to need to use a 7-way connector like the # H20046 and then on your tow vehicle you would need the socket # HM48480. Since it's hard to know what wires will go where based on just color alone what you will want to do is use the two pictures I attached that have 7-way diagrams attached as a guide to wiring up everything. You will have to determine the functions of each of the circuits. On the vehicle side it sounds like everything is...

  • Replacement for 7-way Trailer Connector Adapter Included w/ ETBC7 Brake Controller Install Kit
  • The easiest replacement would be to replace the 7-way used in the # ETBC7 kit, which is # 37185. You could use the Curt # C58000 bracket if need be, but I'd recommend going with the Hopkins # HM47210 7-way instead. The # HM48480 you referenced doesn't include a pigtail, so it wouldn't work for you. If you click the provided link, you can view a video that explains the wire color codes.

  • Diagram to Use When Installing Hopkins 7-Way HM48480
  • I attached a diagram that shows how a 7-way gets wired up by function. If you don't know the function of the wires of your truck you will have to use a circuit tester like part # 3808 to test each wire so that you can determine what it is and wire the 7-way according to the diagram.
