Wire for 7 way connectors

I have plug and socket on order. Do they make molded wire cable with all 7 wires in it of the right sizes? Or do I have to string separate wires with gummy tape wrapped around it?

You should be able to buy 7 conductor cable by the foot at any RV store.

Trailer wire

Perhaps you can return the connector if you want or save for a spare should you have a Northern tool near by. I got mine with a 8 foot cord and the connector already on for about $25.00. (or you can do it yourself). If you do purchase one premade always check the piin out versus color as some don't necessarily adhere to the accepted color code. I didnt find this to be an issue with Northern Tool but have read some stories on the net of this potential issue.

Great People to buy from..

Hi--I can recommend etrailer.com as a great vendor.
They have knowledgeable staff, fast shipping, good packing and
quality merchandise. Their website is easy to use.

I just bought two trailer sockets and a harness for two vehicles.(last week).
They have been around a long time.
They stand be behind their merchandise
They area a recommended vendor and I'm happy and satisfied customer.

I bought two high quality Pollock brand sockets.
When my trailer connector cord gets a bit more beat up, I will buy from them too.

Prices fair, UPS shipping fair.
Recommended!

FWIW, a true trailer wire has different gauge wires in it. The power and ground wire are heavier gauge. Besides color, a web search would lay out what the wire gauges should be. I would try to match them to industry standards.


The two power lines are 10 ga., the brake is 12 ga., and the lights (turn, backup and running) are 14 ga.


You've already purchased but for about $27 you can get the plug, a length of wire and a pre-wired junction box which would make hooking everything up easy.

I'm thinking of one of these because I may add an electric tongue jack and it would be an easy way to connect the electrics.

This true about the sizes of wire. But, that's not the only thing to be concerned about. Automotive wire, which includes RVs is supposed have a teflon type of insulation, not highly flammable vinyl which is what most cheap wire has.

FYI teflon insulated wire is referred to as Cross Link by SAE.

Hi make sure you get the correct length

The other contributor suggests the amazon plu.
Make sure you need "horse trailer" length.

The one suggested is 4 feet.

Here is the link with brand names..
Cable 7 Blade | etrailer.com

Keep your wiring safe, dry and well connected and insulated.
c'ya on the road.
