Default FYI trailer wiring connector site

If you plan on wiring a trailer any time soon, this site is the best I have found for wiring diagrams. "etrailer.com", has 4,5,6, and 7 way diagrams. I have too many trailers and tow vehicles to keep it all memorized, not enough ram in my feeble brain, LOL.HTH, Good luck!

Have to work on your trailer today? I saw you headed into Los Anchorage at around 1400. I was on my way back from a delivery.

Yes, and yes that was me. Been chasing a intermittent issue with running lights and brakes, looks like I will be diving under it to look for a break in the wiring. Some bozo wired the whole trailer with white unlabled wire, I wish I hadn't done that! LOL

we have one of these that is an easy quick tester for vehicle wiring...

7 way tester



I also have one of these for testing trailer wiring....

Trailer Tester



And this for chasing down shorts and opens, Might help find an open circuit but probably not worth it for just one job.....

Power Probe ECT2000

Although I haven't used the ECT2000 yet.

Thanks for the tip on the 7 way tester, I intend to get one. Technology is a wonderful thing, huh, Ken? My problems are that my three vehicles used for towing on the highway are equipped with the 7 way RV connector, the 5 trailers have 6 round, 4 flat and other connectors, slowly converting all to 7 flat RV connectors. Anything built from now on will be wired that way. Before the advent of factory made adapters I made my own. The other problem is my mobility, been on a cane more or less for the last year, which make dragging my carcass under equipment a chore.
