Video Transcript for Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring HM47046 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna take a look at the Hopkins, eight foot long, coiled, night-glow tow bar extension chord, with the four-way round sockets.Now, this kit will let you easily run power from your RV to your tow vehicle. The adapter chord connects the four-way round connector that'll mount on your RV to the four-way round connector that mounts on your tow vehicle.Comes with the two four-way round sockets that wire into your RV and your tow car. The mount will come with . Or, the sockets do come with the mounts for those sockets, and the mounting hardware to install them.Now, on your adapter chord here, it has the night-glow plugs on the end, which will light up when your tail lights on your RV are activated. What's night about that is when you plug it in, it'll confirm continuity of your tail light circuits, and since it lights up, it helps find your electrical connections in the dark.It is a coiled cable, which will stretch to fit your needs, and it keeps the wire from dragging on the ground. It has the easy to grip, heave duty plugs on the end.

So, basically, these would just open up, and then you plug them right into there, simple as that.Specs on this, the length of this chord, when it's fully stretched, is eight feet. And the part will come with everything shown here on the table.But that should do it for the review on the Hopkins, eight foot long coil, night-glow tow bar extension chord, with the four-way round sockets.

the trailer connector is just what I need. have done business with etrailer in the past and will continue.

Just now installing the coil. Instructions are quite simple and easy to understand. Only thing I would mention is there are nuts and bolts to attach the plug adapter to the bracket.

Product works as described and is still a great purchase even a year later.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


To be clear, this review is for the original cord, which must've had a defect in the jacket material, as it literally fell apart. The electrical connection worked fine. Just received a free replacement, (I had to pay return shipping) in a timely manner. We'll see if this one is better.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


The glow coating started to crack and fall off exposing the wires right out of the package. The replacement was received after a 45 day road trip and we haven’t gone anywhere with it yest. The first was dry and brittle - this one seems much more pliable so we’ll see. Thanks for replacing it, just wish it had made it before we drove from NM to WA and back.thank goodness for duck tape

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


Nicely packaged, it was easy to install. It being a yellow cord it should be easy to find, but the ends light with the lights of the rv on, so if I have to connect or disconnect in the dark it will help. Thank you e-trailer for the quick response and great customer service.

Still working strong, great product

Seems to be a sturdy product. We'll see how it performs after 5 months on the road. Thanks, etrailer, for the affordable options compared to my local RV stores.

Went through a long hot summer of use without fail. Looks like it will last a lot longer.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


This is a great cord for towing. The coil is quite strong and doesn't hang down when towing. It stretches easily enough for a straight run back to the toad, but not enough for a diagonal run, requiring repositioning of the plug socket on the back of the RV.




by:

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


Hardware is good. I have matted and de-matted the connectors about 20 times over a travel season with no wear issues. I would repurchase if needed. I also want to thank e-trailer for pointing me the right direction with this purchase.

I have sent an email about a problem with this order. I will need it replaced, but since I have used this same item in the past, I do not think one defective piece deserves a bad review unless there is difficulty getting the replacement, so I will not review it at this time.

Excellent product. Made my life much easier when towing the Jeep behind the motor home. One quick plug in and the Jeep has power to the battery to run the brake controller, turn, running and brake lights.


Comments
Happy to report that after the first year my connection cable is still working perfectly. So easy to just plug one cable into Jeep and have all the electronics online, brake controller, charging Jeep battery, Turn-Brake-Running lights all functioning.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


Very happy with etrailer for the purchase of a Blue Ox tow bar with needed hook ups for lights, etc and an Air Force One Brake system for my 2018 F150. Crystal did a great job of comparing options and matching pricing from across the web. She offered free installation. The Installer, Shane was awesome, I wanted all hookups hidden by the front plate on the F150 when not towing, Shane came through and then some. Finally, the manager Robert was excellent on follow-up as we had some air leak once we got home. etrailer stood behind everything and follow was exceptional. Very pleased!

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


While this cable is made well, it used an alternate pin-out for the brake signal which made it unusable in my application. It is also so tightly coiled that while it is technically long enough to connect from motorhome to towed vehicle there is far too much tension on the cable - risking a loss of connection (and the cable itself). Given the extreme tension and fact that the cable used molded connectors - it is not possible to correct the pin-out without shortening the cable further - so this one is on my junk pile.

Review from a similar Nite-Glow in Accessories and Parts


Description: Hopkins Nite-Glow Tow Bar 7-Way RV to 6-Way Extension Cord cable not really 8' as advertised; My trip last week had many safety problems with this, must stretch it beyond a reasonable tension to get 8' length; result does not stay properly seated in 7 pin plug on my motorhome.

  • Availability of 8 Foot Long 4-Way Wiring Extension
    We do have 4-Way flat to 4-Way flat extension adapters available, however they do not feature a coiled wire like you mentioned in your question. I recommend taking a look at the Hopkins 4-Pole Flat Wiring Extension # HM48235. This extension measures 120 inches (10 feet) long, which is a bit longer than you need but is the closest option available. We also have a 6 foot extension loop with part # RM-300150-00. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on these products that...

  • 4-Way Prong Wiring Needed That is 8' Long
    If you are looking for just an extension then the Hopkins 4-Pole Flat Wiring Extension # HM48235 that you referenced is 10' long and will be exactly what you are needing. For a flat towing application we have the common 4-Way round connectors like part # HM47046 which is 8' long or for a 4-Way flat connector you would need both the part # RM-300150-00 (6') and the part # HM47004 (2'). Let me know if you are looking for something different and I can make a recommendation for you.

  • Towing a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Behind an RV
    The images of the parts you mentioned are there to show you where they would install but they are not included. If you look at the parts list you will notice that they are not included. That is a bit confusing though. The reason they are not included is because there is no way to tell what a given person might need for wiring and if they are even using a supplemental braking system that has a breakaway system, if they are using one at all. Demco base plates # DM9519308 are designed for...

  • Recommended 4-Way Connection Between Towed Vehicle and Motorhome
    The only real advantage of the 4 round over the 4 flat trailer connector is the clean look of the connection point and the protection from elements when not in use. For instance the Pollak Heavy-Duty, 4-Pole, Round Pin Socket, Concealed Terminals - Chrome - Vehicle End # PK11410 has a clean finished look on the front of a towed vehicle and will protect the connection from dirt and debris with the spring loaded cover. Many people like the connection between the motorhome using a harness...

  • Base Plate Recommendation For a 2015 Ford Focus SE Hatchback
    Good news, I can help you pick out the right base plate kit for your 2015 Ford Focus. Staying in the Roadmaster family since you have a Falcon # RM-520, the Roadmaster # RM-524443-5 and the Roadmaster # RM-524443-4 are both great fits for your 2015 Ford Focus SE Hatchback. Both will be compatible with your tow bar, just depends on how you would like the front of the vehicle to look after the install. The difference of the EZ4 and EZ5 is the mounting arms. The EZ5 has the arms that will...
