Options for 7-Way to 6-Way Adapter  


What part number do I use for the adapter? This has the brake on the outer part and center pin 12 volt aux


Expert Reply:

The Hopkins 6 Pole to 7 Pole Adapter, # 47435, does have a pin for the brake output for a brake controller. This adapter will work for your set up as long as the center pin of the 6-way plug on your RV is for 12v power and the pin in the 10 o clock position is for the brakes. You can verify this using a circuit tester like part # 3808.

If the center pin on your 6-way plug is wired for brakes and the pin in the 10 o clock position is for 12v power, then you can still make an adapter using a 6-way round male connector, # PK11604, a 7-pole trailer socket, # PK11893 and 1 ft of the jacketed 6-wire, # DW04906-1. You will want to attach the wires from the 6-way harness to the 7-way socket as I have shown in the attached photo.
