These are high quality plugs. We order them to switch out cheap ones that ship along with our wiring harnesses.



by:

After a year of occasional use on our camper, this connector is still working great! Also worth mentioning, the customer service I get from etrailer is excellent! I had a component on another purchase that I needed to return, and Odelia was very helpful!



by:

Using this product to replace inputs from a straight-4 hookup plus add'l wires from a supplemental light system for my truck. Works exactly as advertised; saves me a lot of hassle. Installer must have some rudimentary electrical-connection knowledge.

You must also know which of the seven contacts does what for your vehicle to install this correctly; should be in your car/truck's manual.

Four instead of 5 stars just because the entrance/exit hole for wires needs supplementation to make it water-tight.

Product is easily worth the money and functions exactly as one would expect.



by:

This is my third order which speaks for itself. Best Customer Support, order handling, shipping expediency, packaging , price and product quality. Lori B took my order over the phone. She was very courteous, knowledgeable and strongly represents the Companies Customer
Service Policy. Looking forward to Order #4...Wentzville, Mo., (The Show Me State) and they sure showed me.

Your wasting your time looking for a better company to do biz with, etrailer has it all under one roof, quality merchandise, bend over backward staff going the extra mile, bodacious customer service and Im sure I left something out here, trust me, try etrailer youll be blown away. They are setting the example in the industry.

This is a great product and works perfectly for my use. Installation was easy especially with the plug and play harness. I wish I lived on the lake, but now I have much more confidence towing to it regularly.



by:

Great job getting parts out fast. All the way to Washington state in just a few days. I feel the customer service department went all out to make it happen. One call and they were on it. Thanks!!



by:

I wanted a plugin connector wired only to 12v 30A pins to connect my Smittybilt air compressor during off road trips and occasional home use without getting under the hood. This connector works perfectly.



by:

do not follow the labeling on the back of the plug the colors do not match. had to do a google image search for a pin out of a trailer plug.


Comments
Thank you for your review! You do bring up a good point. While the wiring setup displayed on the connector is the most common wire colors, it is important to note that some instances can vary so you want to connect the wires by function rather than colors. The function diagram is listed in the photos above as well as this attached helpful article for you to check out.

Excellent product. Worked as expected.

I have this same plug (PK 12706) on the Boat Trailer and it works perfect, and never disconnects or shorts. Now I'm putting this same plug on the Snowmobile Trailer. I'll let you know if I have any problems. Anything to do with trailer issues I always contact eTrailer Company first.
Thanks,
Ron

No problems easy to install



by:

This was an exact replacement for the one that had broken. Its even labeled inside for what color wires attach to what terminal. Can not go wrong here.



by:

The quality is good with and I am happy with that. Just do not follow the wiring labels on it. Half the listed colors are incorrect. I made the mistake and had to rewire after going to etrailer website instructions and getting the correct wire locations. Works good now though. Other than that very happy with it.


Comments
The colors on this plug are for RV Industry Standard wiring. Traditional Wiring colors are different. That said, the individual terminals are in the same order as far as which terminal goes to tail lights, which terminal goes to right turn signal, etc., regardless of which wiring colors are on your existing harness. Now if only the person who converted the wiring on my sisters horse trailer to 6 blade 7 terminal had followed the color codes of either..... That however, will be corrected this Friday!!!!
-- comment by: Bill J - 08/05/2014

Thanks for the info, and this is exactly why we recommend using a good circuit testers and testing all the wires for the function. Then connect according to the function of the wiring, not by color.

After a few purchases my experience tells me buy direct from etrailer they are less expensive than [online store], you get great products can find anything you need for trailer parts



by:

Got my new/used trailer rewired and my '16 Silverado started throwing "check trailer wiring" code ! Trough much research and googling the code I found the factory used the POLLAK 7 pin receptacles . And some 7 pin plug makers were not up to OEM standards . They fit sloppy . So until my new end came I wrapped the sloppy end with electric tape for a snug fit bent tabs out slightly and greased with dielectric grease . That stopped code . When the new end arrived I changed it and seams the problem is solved .



by:

Just what I needed! Good deal.



by:

Wires matched my 5th wheel .
I did cut
into my molded plug and exposed all the old terminals to verify location and color just to be sure. Works very well in bed mounted. 7 way plug that I also got fro etrailer.



by:

As expected , fast delivery



by:

Good plugs. Do just what they should.
There
are two types of 6 way com to 7 way RV adapters. One with the center post to brakes, the other, brakes circuit to a side post. Not sure which way these a wired but one should be aware of this. RV standard is brakes to the side.



by:

Fast shipping and product was as described and of good quality



by:

great job, fast service, good price,

thanks
for making our job easier


Comments
great, used for every snow storm, wiring was proprietary to salter, as commented below, just match up the use, or use your great diagram that is color coded for many of the 7 run cables..

  • Problem with Snapping Female 7 Pin Trailer Connector to the Male 7 Pin Vehicle Connector
    If the cover on the vehicle side 7-Way has broken off, it will not hold the trailer end in place. Check to see if the spring that holds the lid closed is in good working order and if the cover is broken off then the mechanism that normally moves out of the way when the cover is lifted could be blocking the trailer side connector. Other times there is a lot of force required to connect the first few times if parts are new. And there is also the chance that the openings on the trailer side...

  • How to Manually Operate a Slide Out for a Trailer
    There is a chance that your trailer has a manual override built into it. I would recommend you check with your manufacturer before you try the following steps. The first thing you are going to want to do is find the slide-out motor. The motor is located beneath the slide-out room. Refer to the owners manual for the exact location. Next, you will want to remove the brake assembly from the motor. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws that connect the brake assembly to the motor. Do not...

  • Removing Old Plug and Installing 7-Way Trailer Connector # PK12706
    If you cannot access the pin terminals inside your 7-way trailer connector, you can simply cut the wires at the back of the plug. I would actually recommend cutting off the old plug if the plug has a lot of dirt and corrosion. Often times, dirt and corrosion can make its way into the 7-way plug and begin to corrode the wires. By cutting off the plug, you will have clean wires to attach to the new 7-way plug.

  • Wiring Up a New Trailer Side 7-Way Connector on a Trailer that Used to have a 4-Way
    A wishbone harness will have 2 wires for running lights. On a trailer side 4-Way, the pin next to the ground pin is for the running lights. You can connect the 2 wires that carry the running lights together and then to the new connector. The running light wires should be the yellow/brown and green/brown. Traditionally a yellow wire only is for the left turn and brake lights. It is next to the running light pin. And the last pin, typically a green wire only, is for right turn and brake lights. But...

  • How to Wire a Trailer and Vehicle Side 7-Way Trailer Connector
    You cannot go by wire color in most cases because there is no real standard. We have blue for trailer brakes, yellow for left turn/brake lights, brown for running lights, green for right turn/brakes, black for 12 volt power, white for ground, and purple for reverse or AUX power at the center. Since your lights are not working something must not be in the right spot. What you can do is touch each wire to the positive terminal of a separate 12 volt battery and see what lights up. Then you...

  • What are the Wire Designations For the Pollak 7-Pole RV-Style Trailer Connector # PK12706
    I completely understand the confusion, however the diagram that is listed on the Pollak 7-Way RV-Style Trailer Connector # PK12706 is correct. The picture on the right side is the mirror image of the picture on the left. The raised portion at 12 oclock that orients the male plug in the female socket is on the outside housing and the notch on the bottom of the inside portion is for a raised portion at 6 oclock inside the housing.

  • Troubleshooting Voltage Drop on Electric Brake Wire on Trailer with New Wiring
    The first step I would take is to replace the 14 gauge wire for the electric brakes with either 10 or 12 gauge wire. It is not recommended to use wire smaller than 12 gauge on electric brake and battery charge circuits on trailers. The smaller gauge wire should not cause a significant voltage drop by itself, but it could easily overheat and cause problems in the future. The next step would be to inspect your ground connections. Be sure everything is grounded to a clean, bare metal surface....

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights that Go Off When Headlights are On and Brake Is Applied
    It sounds like you have a ground issue. When the headlights are on and the brakes applied, the highest amperage draw is placed on the wiring system and, a faulty ground will show at this time. Make sure you have good metal to metal contact. Paint and corrosion can act as insulators, so make sure the grounds of the light assemblies are touching clean metal. I would check all of the ground connections on the trailer. First, check the ground at the trailer tongue from the trailer conenctor....

  • Troubleshooting a 5th Wheel Trailer with Strange Tail Light Behavior
    To me it sounds like the wiring of the trailer connector that is on the trailer is the problem, I have had similar bizarre behavior like that with trailers and it turned out to be that circuits were getting shorted to each other and it made the tail lights behave strangely. I would recommend that you take a look at the trailer side connector and look for corrosion and loose wiring and fix as necessary.

    It sounds like there is an issue on the trailer brakes of your 1976 Golden Falcon camper. You may want to verify that your camper does have electric trailer brakes. It may seem silly, but just because there is a 7-way on your trailer that does not necessarily mean it has brakes. If you do find that it does have brakes, the next thing to check is the wiring of the brakes. You will want to check the back of the trailer 7-way on the brake output circuit to first check for corrosion. Next,...

    Yes, you can use the Pollack 7-Way Trailer Connector, # PK12706, on your 1998 Jayco Pop Up Camper. The first step is to verify the functions of the wires on your camper. To verify the functions of each wire you can follow the wires along the trailer and see where they end up. You should have two different color wires going into the left and right turn signals and another color going into all of the tail lights. Those will be your turn signal and tail light circuits.

    First, you can almost never go by color as there is no real industry standard. You have to go by function when adding a new 7-Way. I have included a picture that shows the trailer side connector and how it should be wired. Ignore the colors, you will need to trace the wiring back to determine the functions. The corrosion in the bulb sockets and on the bulbs should be cleaned out if at all possible. Corrosion could lead to poor performance down the road.
