Your pin outs were also posted on a Casita forum and when I put in a new cable confident I followed the diagaram nothing worked!!!
I dug and found what I linked to and guess what, it worked and my Casuita was made 17 years ago.
Still scratching my head. As I said I had a nice modern 7 pin installed on my truck for use with a 92 Scamp and the wires where on it just as the diagram suggests. How would the pin type change anything. If nothing has changed on the trailer side. I did eventually though have the trailer side cut off & updated - ditched the 7 pin blade adapter that came on the trailer side and THEN I had to change both sides up to the newer wiring semantics.

Scamp used the Bargman wiring set up which in itself has been known to throw a few folks off. Not sure what year that Scamp stated to put the newer 7 pin blade type connections on their trailers - but for sure it was some time in the late 90's maybe even later. On newer trailers the wiring hook up looks like this.

Joe, not only did I read both your both your posts, as you can see I quoted them.

I apologize if you can not see the humour in my post.

Please go to this LONG link and print out the Current RV standard 7 pin wiring and color coding.
It's the one automobile and truck makers have been using on factory installed 7 pin plugs for at least the past ten years.

And it's NOT bargman that's confusing things, it's trailer makers. there are several 7 pin plug wiring and color schems. The RV standard is in the center. Check the colors carefully.
7 pin trailer wiring schemes - Google Search

I didn't place the pdf of this diagram here because it copyrited!
