A great addition to towing safety at night with my trailer.



by:

Horrible product, the plastic is weak. After tightening the screws the thin red plastic cover cracked. This definitely would not hold up in a camping environment. If the plug were to hit the ground from a fall or be dropped inadvertently the thin red shell would crack. I decided to replace the 8ft section of cord from the junction box on the trailer. With a Bargman molded 7 way trailer cable.

fine

I am very grateful to etrailer for always providing excellent service. Orders are received in a timely and accurate fashion. The quality of their products is superb. All items ordered function as described with no malfunctions. The trailer and vehicle wiring connectors I have ordered were a great replacement for old existing equipment that was constantly failing.
Very professional company. Very high quality products. I look forward to continued business with them.



by:

I had a double blow out and one of my rims cracked. So I ordered these and they look great. I plan on installing them on my gooseneck this weekend. The four lighted 7 way plugs are awesome. I am slowly changing all 15 of my trailers over to these plugs. In the daytime it's hard to tell if everything is working or that a fuse hasn't blown, so these lighted plugs help you trust your connection. Thanks for the great pricing and prompt shipping.



by:

Easy to hook trailer wires to. However, the wire for the led light is flimsy and broke during the wire connection process eliminating the benefit of a lighted plug.



by:

My first one of these I purchased at an auto parts store and paid a lot more for. I installed in on my tandem enclosed trailer and absolutely love it because its solid and when installed the LED light inside indicates a good connection.



by:

The led light was held by a single strand of wire, which promptly broke while wiring the plug. Suggest removing it before starting installation.



by:

Good product, one improvement would be to include directions on LED lighting. You need one wire of the LED on a positive and one on ground. I moved mine according to the purpose I needed.



by:

Designed well. Better electrical contacts than the displaced plug.



by:

Works good but you need to be sure to cut the wires to the plug clean and at the proper length



by:

This connector was just what I needed to renew my trailer/TV connection.



by:

Product works great, would've prefered if it lit up brighter but no issue. Unfortunately immediately after purchase I lost the screw that holds it together and it's very difficult to find a replacement being its a specialty screw. Would buy again



by:

Good product, it's good quality. Was better than the factory installed plug that Bigtex put on.



by:

Works great and not junky



by:

red plastic is more brittle than the black style, cracks if set screw is tightened too much



by:

Continues to work as advertised/promise d.



by:

Better than expected...works great.

  • Is Brake Output Circuit of Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector with Nite-Glow # HM48502 Active
    Yes, the Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector with Nite-Glow # HM48502 that you referenced can be used with the brake output circuit as that pin is active in the connector.

  • Replacing 6-Way of Trailer with 7-Way Wiring Diagram
    6-way and 7-way wiring typically use different wire colors by function so there isn't going to be a way to use the color of your wires to install the part # HM48502. So the best solution I can give you is to use a jumper wire from a 12 volt battery positive post to put voltage on all of the wires on the trailer's wiring so that you can identify all of the circuits and then use the attached diagram by function.

  • Trailer Connector That Lights Up for use With 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500
    We do have an option for a 7-way trailer end connector that has lights but plugging in the Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector w/ LED Test Lights # HM48503 upside down would not allow you to see the LED function as it would face the ground. Instead I recommend checking out the Hopkins 7-Way RV Style Trailer Connector with Nite-Glow # HM48502 because it will illuminate when plugged in. I have added a link to a video review of this connector for you to check out which shows how the...

  • Diagram to Use When Wiring 7-way in Place of 6-Way on Horse Trailer
    Your best option is going to be to use the wiring diagram I attached for 6-ways to identify the functions of the wires from the picture you sent in and then wire them according to the labelled pins on the new 7-way similar to the # HM48502 and you'd be set. Use the set screw that you see in your picture as the "top" when comparing what you have to the wiring diagram. The center pin is the 12 volt circuit on the 6-way and if you have no use for it (it has nothing to do with brake controller)...

  • 7-Way Tester Recommendation that Plugs in And Test All Lighting Functions
    If you are looking for a 7-way tester that plugs into a vehicle's 7-way and allows you to test all of the functions what you'd want is the part # C73NR. The part # HM48502 isn't really a "tester" it does light up when the running or headlights are activated though.

  • Does The Tekonsha T-One Wiring Harness 118291 Have a 7-Way Blade Or Pin Connector?
    Yes, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118291 for your 2020 Honda Passport will accept the Hopkins 7-way blade connector 48505. As we do not currently carry the 48505, the # HM48502 is the same connector with a glow feature to show the connector is powered. You will need a Mounting Bracket # PK12711U for the 7-way connector. If using on a trailer with electric brakes I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 be installed with the Wiring Adapter # 3070-P for...
