Assuming, I think safely, that the operators of BigfootRV in that era were reasonably competent, their trailers would have a 7-pin "RV style" connection. Not the connector with 7 round pins used by commercial trucks, but the one with 6 flat blades surrounding one round pin... both styles have a round body.

Examples:
end on trailer cable
socket on tow vehicle

This is the only common connector intended for use with electric brakes and a battery charging circuit.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Thanks Brian,

Do you know if there are adaptors to go from a flat 4 pin to the 7 pin RV wiring?

Generally the adapters are are to go from a 7 pin on the tow vehicle to a flat 4 on the trailer so one can pull a small utility trailer with a 7 pin equipped tow vehicle.

The 7 pin connector on the tow vehicle will need additional wires for the brakes and tow charge line, so you may as well tap into the flat four harness.
