4 or 7 pin connector?

Hello again, I am looking at getting my Sienna wired up for an Egg but realized I dont know what the most common connector type is. Do most 13 foot eggs use a 4 pin or 7 pin connector? I want to be ready for when we find our egg. I guess if I got a 4 pin installed and found an egg using a 7 pin I could always get an adaptor. But if most 13 footers use a 7 pin I'll go ahead and get that instead.

Thanks again,
Melissa

Mellisa, have the 7 pin installed, you can always buy a 7 to 4 adapter that plugs into your receptical if you end up with a trailer that has a flat 4 connector.
You are limited with the flat 4 as you will only have a ground wire, left and right turn and tail lights.
You will not be able to run a brake line, charge line or backup lights if you want to in the future.

The four pin connector is made to supply running/taillights and brake/turnsignals only.
The seven blade RV connecter allows for the above PLUS back-up lights, a charge line for your battery AND power for trailer brakes.
It would be best to have an RV plug if you wish to supply back-up lights, battery charging and/or electric brake control from the TV.
The good news is that they make a plug for your TV which will supply both side by side with no extra wiring and about $10 extra cost. I think I have a picture let's see....

Oh that looks awesome! So neat and tidy. Then I'd be prepared no matter what type of hookup the egg had. Thanks!

Not to rain on any parades, I had my adapter stolen while we were in a store. I'm no expert but I don't think you would need an adapter for a camper because most of what I've seen are 7 pins (blades). If you did need an adapter, buy 2 and always check your connects after stopping. I got so angry after lossing the second adapter that I cut off the 4 pin plug and installed a 7 pin on my utility trailer. Next project is change the utility trailer to a 2 inch ball.
