Performance Tool LCD Digital Circuit Tester Review

Hi, they're hard workers! Today we're going to be taking a look at Performance Tool's LCD circuit tester. To give you an idea of how your circuit tester works, it has LEDs in here that'll light up when both power and ground is present. You'll have to clip your probe onto either power or ground. The, the clip end here, we've got that attached to the ground side of our battery. And then with the probe end, instead of the clip side, you'll touch this to your other circuit. And if there is the opposite there it'll light up. more

Hopkins RV Trailer Connector 12-Volt Power Inverter Adapter Review

Hey everybody, how's it going Today, we're going to be going over the Hopkins power inverter adapter for seven-way trailer connectors. So, I'm sure you're probably asking yourselves now why we actually need an inverter that plugs into our seven-way. So, if you're fortunate enough to have a newer truck a lot of these actually have 120 volt outlets built into the truck bed that allows us to plug in pretty much any of our household appliances that we may need. But, if you have a truck that's a little bit older chances are you don't have those 120 volt outlets. Now those outlets that we're using there, they can come in handy.

Hey everyone, Shane here with etrailer.com. Today I have a 2020 Toyota Corolla, and I'm gonna walk you through how to install the Hopkins 4-Pole to 5-Pole adaptor plug. What this is designed to do, is if you have a 4-pole plug on your vehicle, but your trailer has a 5-pole, this allows you to hook into your 4-pole plug on your vehicle, to give you that 5-pole end, if your trailer has a reverse light circuit. The blue wire coming off is gonna have a bullet connector on it, it's gonna come with the extension to connect to our reverse light circuit in the vehicle. This way your trailer, having that reverse light circuit, will allow anybody behind you, if you're backing up, to see what you're doing. What makes this nice is if we're not pulling a trailer with a 5-pole, we can take this adapter, we can throw it in our glove box, or with our other wiring. more

These are available in three different sizes: you can get quarter-inch, half-inch or three-quarter, for the appropriate size wiring or hoses that you need to secure. These hose clamps are great for securing wiring, hoses, and brake lines and other items that run front-to-back on your trailer, to keep them from vibrating around, potentially rubbing on things, and over time, wearing out and damaging themselves. They come in various sizes for the various different components. You want to try to match the size as close as possible; it's gonna minimize the amount of vibration it has, 'cause it's gonna hold it secure inside the clamp, but you don't want one that's too small, 'cause we don't want to crush our lines or damage them. more

Ellen : Hey everybody, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com where we're taking a quick look at the Curt Wiring Adapter. This is going to go from a seven pole, or an RV style connector, to a five way flat. So if that's what you have on the back of your vehicle, and you need to connect to your trailer, this is going to be the adaptor to get you there.It measures out about 96 inches when you fully stretch it out. But that coil design is going to help to keep the excess off the ground. So as you stretch it out, it's not going to just be dragging on the ground and getting marred up or scraped or anything like that.So we'll take a closer look and I'll show you those terminals, so you can make sure that this is the right fit for you. Now, our seven blade would normally have seven functions, but since it's only going to our five wires, that's all the functions that we're going to get from this.And those five functions are going to be your stop, or your brake signal, your turn, so left and right, running lights, reverse signal as well.And again, just corresponds with the terminals on the other side. more

Review of Pollak Wiring - Wiring Adapters - PK12-724- Video

Review of Pollak Wiring - Wiring Adapters - PK12-724

Ellen: Hey everybody, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com,= and we're looking at the Pollak trailer wiring adapter. This gives you a 7-pole round to a 7-way blade, and it allows you to transfer those wiring connections from one vehicle to another, or from your vehicle to your trailer. Typically this is going to be used in mostly ag applications, when you're moving things around on the farm and you just need to have those flashers so that you can let other people know to go around you, or just to watch out.Some things to keep in mind, though, a lot of times whenever you have a 7- blade round connection, it's going to be wired a little bit differently than what this is intended for. So if you have a separate brake signal from the trailer, the turn light signals, so if those are on different wires, the brake signal and the turn signals aren't combined, this won't work. It only works with a combined signal system. It had a resistor or a converter in this, you could make it work, but it's just going to be a direct wiring.Also, you definitely want to test all the functions of the wiring, because it can be a little bit squirrely as far as what lines up with what. more

Review of Hopkins Wiring - Wiring Adapters - HM47425

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to talk about the Hopkins trailer wiring adapter. This goes from a 7-pole round to a 7-way blade style connection. So a lot of times this is going to be used in ag applications when you're trying to just move stuff around on the farm and you need to connect up to any kind of a John Deere, or maybe just international vehicle, something that's going to be more of that ag application. The reason why you wouldn't necessarily want to use this for a just regular towing or RV application is because this is only designed to be used with a combined turn signal and brakes, or turn and brake system. So if you have separate turn signals from the brake, meaning those signals are on different wires, this won't pull that through correctly. more

Hopkins 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole Adapter Installation - 2019 Toyota Highlander- Video

Hopkins 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole Adapter Installation - 2019 Toyota Highlander

Connor: Hey everybody, how's it going Connor today at etrailer.com. We're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins 4 and 7-Pole Trailer Connector Adapter here for our 2019 Toyota Highlander. Now, granted, this may vary a little bit, depending on what trailer connector mounting bracket we're using, but more often than not, it's going to be secured to the hitch receiver tube here, which is going to give us a nice accessible location here as well as going to be sturdy so we don't have to worry about it shifting around or plugging in our trailer connectors. So a seven-pole trailer connector is going to be a step up from the standard four-way trailer connector, and some reasons why you might need a seven-way trailer connector, number one, the most common is if you have electric brakes on your trailer, you are going to be required to run a seven-way trailer connector.And another common occurrence we see of the seven-way trailer connectors being used is if the trailer has a battery and you need to run a battery charge line circuit. So if you have a larger trailer with electric brakes or an onboard battery, chances are it's going to use a seven-way trailer connector, so we're going to need one of these for the vehicle.So this trailer connector here is sort of unique in that it offers pretty much plug and play installation because it's going to plug into an existing four-way trailer connector we have on the vehicle. And if you don't have one of these, we have plenty of plug and play options here at etrailer. more

Curt Trailer Connector Adapter Installation - 2020 Volvo XC60

Connor: Hey guys, Connor here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the CURT trailer connector adapter here for our 2020 Volvo XC60. So this is what the 7-way is going to look like installed on pretty much all vehicles. As you can see here, the great thing about this adapter here, it's going to take a 4-way flat trailer connector adapter, which is the most common and standard kind and it's going to adapt it into a 7-way trailer connector adapter. We're also still going to retain the 4-way on the side here.So if you're wondering why you would need a 7-way trailer connector and the reason for this is most larger to medium duty trailers or any trailer with brakes for that matter, is going to require the 7-way because the 7-way has more circuits than the 4-way, which allows us to accommodate additional features such as the electric brake output pin or reverse lights, should we need them. It's also going to have a battery charge line circuit if our trailer has an onboard battery. more
