7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector, 4' Long - H20043

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (223 Customer Reviews)


by:

Check the function of your wires on Trailer and Truck! Product is perfectly fine. It's wired for RV Traditional. My Truck is RV Traditional. My Trailer is SAE Standard. Took me a minute to figure it out. My advice... hook this up to your truck and with a meter and test light confirm the function of each wire. Do the same with your trailer. If you don't understand that... hire someone that does. eTrailer.com awesome as always.




by:

I fabricated a receiver hitch motorcycle rack, I used trailer wiring and led lights, so I have lights on the rack. Just plug it in to the truck trailer plug. Good quality and instructions with etrailer supply's.Thanks




by:

The color coating does not match the pin it should be on. I had to go to a automotive technician to get it wired correctly. Very disappointed.


Comments
We apologize for any confusion. Hopkins is well known for having a different color code than most wiring for trailers, since there isnt really a standard for color coding. We do have the chart that shows what colors are supposed to be what on the product page under the specs.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 08/04/2022


by:

The quality of this trailer plug connector should make it last forever! The seal at the end will withstand the constant bending and twisting that this daily-use utility trailer will put to it. The blade style RV plug end will fit any factory equipped pickup receptacle so I can use multiple tow vehicles.




by:

Easy to maneuver and understandable website. Good ordering instructions. Good order fulfillment. Timely shipment. Accurate and safe packaging. Good follow up.

Best harness I’ve owned




by:

Great products & great service!




by:

Outstanding customer service.. parts delivered promptly and better quality than expected.. I have recommended your company to anyone working on a trailer, and look forward to my next project..




by:

Right now 3 stars. Received the connector 12 Oct 2021. The cord on the trailer had the same connector on it which worked if you manipulated the pins to make connection (reason for replacing). The wiring colors on trailer, old connector snd new connector are the same, so adding new connector wasn’t a problem. When I plugged into the vehicle and tried the lights, nothing worked properly. The only time any lights came on was when right turn or hazard switches were activated and ALL the lights on trailer came on flashing. Tried the connection on 2 vehicles with same result. Called etrailer and they are sending another connector. Will give update then.




by:

Used this on my snowmobile trailer. The cable outer jacket is to rigid (Not flexible). Gets worse in colder temps. Don't recommend it for cold use. Picture is in garage at 53F. Cable is so stiff it won't fall on the floor.




by:

you sent me a 2ft wire conector i order a 4ft i now have to ship back




by:

Went from a 5 blade flat plug on boat trailer with tandem surge brakes to a solid 7 way molded connector. etrailer wiring diagrams were very helpful especially since boat trailer wiring did not match up to 7 way plug wiring. Double check with a tester to be sure your connecting correct wires.




by:

My horse trailer OEM unit was brittle and stiff, after just a few years. This new wire harness from etrailer fixed the problem and was easy to install. It is even a little longer then the OEM, so there is more more room for turning sharp corners.


Comments
Still works great. Great connection with the tow vehicle, and still very pliable wires!

Exactly what I was looking for, fast shipping, best price…etrailer has never failed me!




by:

Great, other than wire colors had to ch ange.




by:

Bought a 20 year old horse trailer and needed to rewire it. The original pigtail had a 6 terminal plug, my new pick-up had a flat four and a 7 pin. When I bought it the guy gave me a 6 to 7 pin adapter but it didn't allow electric brakes. They are required in my state for a trailer over 1500 lbs. Think trailer with two horses. So I bought this pigtail. It is top quality and has large gauge wiring. I also needed break-away switch so I needed a battery. This pig-tail has #10 wires for both 30 amps (+12V) and Chassis ground. This really puts a charge in the trailer battery. (would do the same for an RV) Then #14 wire for the brake signal. This plugs right into the seven pin plug on my pickup with the tow package. Highly recommend.




by:

Works like a connector should. Was happy that the color coding on the cable was the same as the camper




by:

I purchased the 4' molded 7-way molded wire and plug, and the wiring junction box. I was very happy with all the products. My mistake was not crawling under my trailer and studying the frame layout proir to ordering. Once I was ready to rewire my trailer, I dicovered that my origional plan wouldn't work so the molded plug was too short.
E-trailer was very prompt, and everything was exactly as dicribed.




by:

The wiring harness is fine. I use it everyday and it's made of durable material.

All good

All i can say is all great as always, Thanks

Exactly what I need to replace my current trailer connector. The best part about this item is that the plug is molded on.

  • Solution for Towing a Coleman Camper with a 6-Way Square Connector with a Tow Vehicle with 7-Way
    The connector you have on your trailer will need to be replaced as there isn't an adapter available for your setup. You will want to cut the 6-way round off of your trailer and replace it with a # H20043 by wiring it by function. You would want to apply 12 volts to each of the circuits on your trailer with a jumper wire and a car battery so that you can determine their function and then wire it to the # H20043 by function. I attached a chart that shows the colors of the wires and where...

  • Color Code Functions of Hopkins 7-Way Trailer Wiring Harness
    The Hopkins # H20043 uses the following wire coloring: White Wire - Ground Red Wire - Left Turn and Brake Brown Wire - Right Turn and Brake Green Wire - Tail Lights Blue Wire - Brake Power Black Wire - 12 volt (hot lead) Yellow Wire - Aux. I recommend wiring your trailer by function and not color. If there is a circuit you don't need for any reason it doesn't have to be connected.

  • Converting Trailer from 5-Way Connector to a 7-Way by Function
    I've linked a help article that will give you the common color coding but on your trailer I wouldn't go by it. Even if they are correct you just never know so I suggest testing it. To test it cut off the 5-way connector that's on there and connect each wire to a 12-volt power source and see what functions. Then use a 7-way connector like the Hopkins # H20043 and connect the function to the correct leads. Even the Hopkins does not use the traditional color coding. Instead it uses the...

  • Replacement Trailer 7-Way Recommendation for a 2002 Viking Legend Camper
    The trailer side 7-ways we offer like the part # H20043 all have blunt cut wires that you could splice into your trailer's wiring, but we do not have any 7-ways that have any connectors like what you described. You could still wire in the part # H20043 though. I attached a chart that details how this harness would typically get wired to a trailer. You can still send me a picture though and I will take a look at it.

  • How to Power Utility Light In Trailer That Has 4-Way Connector
    You are on the right track. You will need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can tap into the 12 volt accessory circuit of the connector to power the utility light. For a 7-way with a 4 foot long section of wire you would want the part # H20043. Currently your interior light is ran to the running lights circuit of the 4-way wiring. You would need to run the light to the black wire of the new 7-way as that is for the 12 volt circuit. I attached a chart that shows how the 7-way...

  • How Should Utility Lights be Wired on a Trailer
    When you go to wire up the utility lights on your trailer the best way is to run the power wire to each light and then run the ground to either. Running them in series wouldn't be the best way since if one light goes out both go out like Christmas lights.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Battery Backfeeding Into Truck Lights
    From what I can tell of your explanation, it sounds like the trailer battery is backfeeding into the truck, causing this issue. The only way I can think of that this would happen is that your 7-way like the 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20043 is not pinned correctly. I'm not sure which trailer connector you purchased from us so the best I can offer is for you to ensure the 7-way is wired correctly by function instead of by matching colors. I have added links to some help articles...

For the vehicle side of the 7-way connector it would be the 7 o'clock position. I included pictures of both of the wiring positions for both sides of the 7-way connector and a video of the # H20043 for you to take a look at.

  • How To Replace 7-Way Trailer Connector On Trailer with 5 Wires
    In order to install a 7-way trailer connector like the 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector part # H20043 on a trailer with five wires, we need to know what those wires do. I can almost guarantee what four of them are; left stop/turn, right stop/turn, running lights, and ground. If the trailer has brakes then the last wire is for the brake output. If the trailer has an on-board battery then the wire is for the battery charge line. If the trailer has backup lights or an electric actuator...

  • Would a Boat Trailer Have a 7-Way Harness with only 5 Wires Ran to it
    It is very possible that your trailer has a 7-way harness installed on it and not all of the circuits are completed. For a 7-way and lead that is 4 feet long you would want the part # H20043. Then for a new junction box we have the # 38656. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

    We have a solution for you, but we do not carry the adapter you are looking for. A much easier solution would be to cut off the connector on your trailer and replace it with a 7-way like part # H20043 since that would make your trailer easier to connect to your vehicle and other vehicles.

  • Will Hopkins 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector Work With Trailer Connector On 2013 Toyota Tundra
    The Hopkins 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20043 is designed to be installed on a trailer and is compatible with the 7-way connector on your 2013 Tundra. When installing this harness I recommend using a wiring junction box like part # 38656.

You want to make sure you note what the function is for each wire when you are installing the harness on your trailer.

  • Short Circuit in Trailer Connector Melted Wiring and Causes Trailer Brakes to Lock Up
    On a 7-Way trailer connector there should not be a 24 volt wire. But wires could come loose and make contact with other wires inside the connector and cause a short which is what sounds like happened. I recommend replacing the trailer side 7-Way with # H20043 which also has a 4-foot lead of wires in case the problem exists further back in the wiring. On this harness the white wire is ground, red is left turn signal/brake light, brown is right turn/brake light, green is tail lights, blue...

  • How Can I Get Tail Lights on a Trailer with an Australian 7-Way Harness on My Trailer?
    The best route for having brake lights, turn signals, and running lights on your trailer with an Australian 7-way is to use the Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter # 118158. With this system, this will split up the wiring signals for your brake lights and turn signals on the left and right side. For installation, you will have to splice into your current wiring setup. I went ahead and attached a photo that shows the a 4-way wiring setup to give you a good idea of the process.

    The red light being on when you press the brakes is normal for the Tekonsha PowerTrac Electronic Brake Controller # 39523, and the green light should be on when you have a trailer connected. If it is not on then, and only when the headlights are on with your Frontier, it sounds like you have a short or a connector on your trailer that is possibly corroded, which can interfere with the signal and only get the power needed with the added amperage of the headlights being on.
