I am having trouble keeping the towing cable (electrical) plugged into the 7 prong receiver. It fell out last year while towing and dragged on the ground wearing away half the plug. This must have happened after running over some rough pavement (lot of construction going on in the area we were traveling). We put what was left of the plug back into the receiver and used rubber bands to hold it there until we got home. Fortunately we had brakes
My question is "do they make anything to hold the plug in the receiver?" A clamp or some other means to hold the two parts together? I can't be the only one with this problem.
The connection was snug before, but now (after replacing the worn plug) the connection is looser than before. I considered using ball bungees to hold the two pieces together, but this doesn't seem like a permanent solution. Camping World suggested using wire ties, but that would mean cutting them off at every stop when we unhitched, and putting new ones on when we are set to go again. I have checked with two RV trailer dealers and one suggested the ball bungees, and the other told me to "use the clamps on truck" - I have a mini-van and a Scamp
trailer - no truck. The receptacle was put on by U-Haul
. I called them and they had no solutions either.
Does anyone make a clamp that would attach to the receptacle and EASILY slip over the "ears" of the 7 prong plug to hold it in? How does everyone else deal with this problem? Any insight or solutions would be highly appreciated. We leave in a week to go half way across the country. Don't want to grind down my connector again!
