Thanks Joe - I was confused by the pinout listed in the current Scamp Users' Manual. It still shows the old heavy duty (J560) connector, although my 2012 Scamp has the standard RV 7-pin connector. The manual page is outdated.

Go to the following link and scroll down a little and you will find there are 3 7 pin standards.
Trailer Wiring Diagrams | etrailer.com

RV Standard 7 pin (flat pins)

Traditional 7 Pin (flat pins)

Heavy duty 7 pin (round pins)

As I stated Casita has used the RV standard at least as far back as 1999.

Here's another one to throw in the mix. I made this from my 2010 Scamp.

Thanks for that post to the eTrailer site
I now see why there is a difference of opinion on the wire colors. So much for a "Standard" when one has to be different from the other for no apparent reason.


The sub-lesson here is if one buys a new, pre-wired, 7 lead pigtail, that the colors may or may not match your trailers existing wiring. The one I just bought from an RV dealer matches the "Traditional" color code, not the "RV Standard" color code.


Somehow I think that there are lot more non-RV trailers out there than towable RV's, so why the need to reinvent a perfectly good wheel?


Back before my time, Henry Ford's cars had at least one nut size that was a non-standard size, hence the need for a "Ford Wrench".

Darrell.

To me that looks like the "RV Standard" plug unless I missed something.

One good thing about it is the automobile and truck industry for the most part use the RV standard on the TV end of it.

Or at least on my Jeep and Silverado

I've bought two 7 pin pig tails, a Hopkins at Wally world and an 8 foot Bargman I ordered on line and they both used the RV standard that seems to designate 3 different size wires for different things.
Or at least Jeeps and Silverado trucks

My original was a Bargman, all 3 cables followed the same color scheme a wire gauge.

10 gauge for battery and ground.
12 gauge for the brake line.
14 gauge for all the lights.
