Trailer connection

Placed a fixed 7 blade socket on my car and also on the trailer, now using brakes and also car alternator for charging batteries. Also have a socket extension for connecting vehicle to trailer.

I did something similar on my boler American. I also made an additional extension with 7 blade on one end and 4 pin on the other in case a tow vehicle only had a 4 pin connector.



I also consider it part of an anti theft system in combination with removable tow chains. Someone will need both in order to tow the trailer legally. No lights or chains and they are more likely to get pulled over. Nothing like tracking attention to yourself.

Good idea.
