Recommended Replacement 4-Pole Trailer Connector for Wishbone Type Trailer Wiring Harness


Can I use part #48195 to connect to a 5 wire wishbone trailer harness? Or should I be using part#00240? Do you sell a dust cover for either? How about screws for plastic taillight lenses? Thank you


Expert Reply:

The # 48195 would be a handy item to have around in case of emergency, but It's not a permanent fix and I wouldn't recommend using it for a 5 wire wishbone harness. The # 002402 would be a better choice but I prefer the Hopkins # HM48110 because of its larger gripping surface that makes using the connector much easier.

For installation to your existing harness, you'd connect the two brown wires from the trailer harness to the brown wire on the # HM84110, then match up the yellow, green and white. I'd recommend soldering the connections then weatherproofing them using heat shrink tubing like # DW05451. If you don't have a soldering iron, we offer a handy cordless model as part # PTW2000.
