Electrical Adapters

In order to power the lights and electrical system of your trailer, it must have compatible connectors to bridge the connection to your tow vehicle. Having trailer lights that properly operate is not just needed for safety—it is also required by state law.

There are many different types of electrical connectors used to run power between a trailer’s electrical system and a tow vehicles electrical system. Depending on what kind of trailer you are towing, the electrical requirements may vary from the basic running lights, brake lights and turn signals to more complex systems with electric brakes, reverse lights and auxiliary power. Rarely do the connectors of a tow vehicle and trailer match. However, there is a simple solution to this common problem.

Connectors range in formats from 7-way RV blade to 4-way flat and many others in between. In order for mismatched connectors to connect, an electrical adapter is needed. Most electrical adapters are plug-and-play and do not require any splicing to install.
