It sounds like you are looking for the LED testers integrated into your wiring. If you want the trailer side 7-way with LED, I recommend the Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector w/ LED Test Lights - Trailer End # HM48503. This will let you know if power is being received from the tow vehicle for each function to make testing and troubleshooting easy. This is already integrated in the Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Connector w/ Molded Cable and LED Test Lights - Trailer End - 8' Long # HM20087. To make wiring easy, you may want to consider a junction box like # 38656 along with terminals like # 44-5310A.

If you want an LED tester for the vehicle end only, I recommend the Tekonsha 7-Way Trailer Emulator Blade Style Connector # 6562. This will let you test functions on your vehicle.
