Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow Trailer Connector Adapter Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at a four, five and six pole adapter designed to plug into a standard seven pole on the back of your vehicle. Now, oftentimes, customers get a hold of this and they want to know how they can do that. They want to know how they can go from the seven pole that's on their vehicle, to a working four pole or five pole or six pole, just depending on their needs. Basically, an adapter is really the best bet in my mind. This is going to eliminate the need for us to change the wiring on our trailer, maybe you had on a different plug. more

Review of Spectro Wiring - Tools for Wiring - SWC8925-1

Today we're going to take a quick look at the Cable Clamp. This is going to help you get any cables or wires hooked up to your trailer and run securely. It keeps them from dragging on the ground or going over any kind of sharp edges. It just helps to make that wiring overall easier to do, and more secure, so you don't have any shorts or cuts in your line. This is going to be a nice clamp to use, especially on boat trailers or anywhere that you're going to be encountering a lot of moisture. Since it's made of just a natural white nylon, that's better than the typical rubber coated steel that can tend to rust out over time. more

MaxxTow Trailer Connector Adapter Review- Video

MaxxTow Trailer Connector Adapter Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at Maxxtow's seven way to four way trailer connector adapter. This adapter is going to allow you to take your seven pole connector that's on your vehicle and convert it to a four pole connector. This can be useful for a lot of different reasons. As our example that we have here, our trailer only has a four pole connector, so the only way we can get those lights to work on our trailer is by using an adapter.Another common use is to use this for your flat tow setup. If you don't have a breaking system installed in your vehicle, and you just have lights, you only have a four pole connector on your vehicle, and you only have your seven pole here on your RV. In order to get those lights to work on your vehicle, we can use this adapter, it can stretch out to reach the cable that's on our vehicle, and provide us with that necessary lighting.Or, if you do have an all-removable type flat two setup where you're using a removable breaking system, like the Patriot and magnetic lights, this can be a great option to get those magnetic lights powered up. more
