Review of Epicord Wiring 277-000141


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with the included junction box. This is going to provide an easier way to get your trailer wired. It provides a 7-way connector for your trailer, that way you can easily get everything connected to the 7-way port on your tow vehicle. The 7-way trailer end connector is already connected to the correct locations within the box. All you have to do is run your trailer wiring inside the junction box, match it up with the correct functions and you're going to be ready to go. This is going to measure 10 feet long. It's a heavy duty cord so it's going to give you the length that you need and it's going to provide the protection to the wires that we're looking for.

It's going to feature a weatherproof and corrosion resistant design, which is going to help insure that this plug is going to last for years. Taking a look at the trailer end plug right here, that's going to connect to the tow vehicle. It's got the finger tabs, which allows for easy connecting and disconnecting, and it's got the tab here on top, we call that an alignment tab and that's going to align in the groove in the socket that would be on the 7-way connector on the vehicle. We're going to take a look inside the junction box real quick. It's got 2 screws here on top that holds the lid on to the bottom portion of the box. They'll be Phillips head screws, we can easily remove those. Then we'll point out some features about the box.

The lid easily comes off. Inside here, you can see that it's going to have the posts. I do want to mention that these posts are going to be color coded, they've got the tips colored. It's going to say the color coding on this side of the posts and on the bottom side it's actually going to label the functions. So right here, it's white, it says white on this side and on the underside it says ground.

So we know that the white wire connects to the white post and that's going to be the ground function. That's going to be our ground wire. Also, I want to point out that on the 2 ports right here to run wires through, we'll see that they've got the rubber plugs. I'll just go ahead and remove all of those so we can get a better look at it. It's going to have set screws located in here so that way, when you run the wiring through, you can tighten down those set screws and it's going to bring a clamp down over the wires which is going to help keep dirt and moisture and any other elements out of the box. It's going to come with solid plugs, that way whatever holes you're not using .. You've got 2 on this side and then 1 on each side of the box.

Whatever holes you aren't using, you can use those solid plugs to cover up. It's going to come with 4 plugs that have pre-cut holes in them already. That way you can run your wires through. That acts as a grommet so it still allows you to run the wires through, but it's going to keep out anything that could pass by the wires. Both of those are included, 4 of each. 4 solids, 4 with pre-cut holes. It seems like a really nice design. Again, weatherproof and corrosion resistant design. Hardware is included for each connection port inside the junction box. Your mounting hardware is sold separately. You can see here on the bottom of the box, we're going to have 2 mount hole locations, 1 on each side. If we take a measurement, the distance between those mount holes, that's going to give us a measurement of 7 and 3/8ths of an inch. The overall length from edge to edge, those mounting tabs, that looks to measure about 8 and 1/8th inches long. The width of the box, that's going to measure about 3 and 1/4 inches. Let's go ahead and put that lid back on and then we can go ahead and give you a measurement of the overall height as well. The diameter of those mount holes is going to measure 5/16ths of an inch. Again, mounting hardware is not included so that will need to be provided separately. We'll take a look at the overall height of the box, we can see that that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 and 1/4 inches. This is CETL and ETL US listed, which means that this product has been tested and meets the safety standards for use in Canada and for use in the United States. That's going to do it for today's look at the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with the included junction box.
