Are the Pins of a 7-Way Trailer Socket Supposed to be Bent


Is the female end of 7 way plug sapost to be bent. I mean the brass connectors inside of plug. Having problems. Have marker lights, but nothing else. Any help would be great. Looks like some of the brass connectors are bent. Was thinking that I need a new female end.


Expert Reply:

If the pins of your current 7-way are bent down and do not look like the pins in the 7-way picture that I attached you would need to either bend them back so that they make contact again or replace the entire socket with something like the part # PK12703 that you referenced.

Your bent posts are the reason your trailer wiring is working properly.
