"Hopkins Towing Solutions 7-Way Molded Connectors with 8Ft. Cable, Model# 20146"
Took some time(my fault), some tips on wiring
I severed my prior wiring harness, backing into a tight spot and forgot to disconnect it. Sheared it in half. Ordered this, nice quality, same color wires as one I was replacing. Figured 20 minutes to change it.
Not so fast, but the problem was on my end. I thought two fuses to check (there were three in my truck), and one of the two, I checked the wrong one (cut me some slack, just coming off back surgery and couldn't contort to see the fuses very well). After I figured out the problem was truck-side using a meter, it went smoothly. However, I did some research and came up with this.
Connecter yellow wire not used on my truck. Others are color to color on my 2005 Keystone Hornet 27BS camper. (green, brown, red for lights, black for power, white ground, blue trailer brakes). From what I found however, if your camper lights wiring has yellow, green, brown for the lights (rather than green, brown, red) then you go connector red to camper yellow, then criss cross and go green to brown, brown to green. Not sure on this, but seems like others diagnosed it this way. May save you some frustration if your wires don't match up.
It took me a while, but it was my own fault. The product is sturdy and high quality at very good price.

Trailer Electrical Cable
These molded Trailer electrical cables are the best for wiring up your trailer for lights, turn signal, and brake lights. The wires are color coded for easy identification, well insulated with a thick black insulation that protects all the wires. The plug is well made too. Would recommend these for any trailer wiring job. Depending on the length of your trailer you might want to order longer than eight feet.

Great deal, beats all other prices out there. It was easy to install where one already existed. All wire colors matched perfectly to the old wire.

I cannot rate this product low enough. After spending the better part of a day completely re-wiring a car trailer getting it ready for a long trip, I purchased this plug to complete the project since it is a nice, clean, and convenient item. Everything was wrapped up in conduit and connections were in heat shrink, the terminals are all wrong. To eliminate my wiring I cut the plug back off of the trailer and tested it by itself and it is wrong. All terminals. Do not buy.

This was an in store purchase and it's a very well made, heavy duty plug. I rated it four stars because only the blue brake wire, white ground, and black Aux power wire matched standard trailer code blade placement in the plug. Reading the other reviews the manufacturer must assemble some plugs correctly and sometimes not. It's still a well made plug, and as long as the heavier gauge ground, brake, and Aux power wire is correct the colors don't matter. Just use your meter or test light to get the other three correct. Lft stop, Rt stop, and marker lights.
Also, I'm confused about the name. I have bought a Hoppy product before and the catalog states it's made by Hopkins which is the name on the plug so maybe they are the same company. Either way I plan on purchasing a second one from Northern for another trailer.

Hoppy 7 RV Connector
I really like this prewired 7 Blade RV style connector. Tough, durable, waterproof, and stays flexible in cold weather. I have them on all of my trailers!

I purchased an enclosed trailer and was in the process of restoring it when i can to the point of having to rewire the lights and electric brakes. I came across the 7 pin connector listed on your web page and figured i'd give it a try. It worked so well that when i finish this trailer i will be ordering another connector to replace the one on my open trailer. thanks for a great product.

I bought this to rewire a trailer for electric brakes. The look and quality is good. It installed easily. I would recommend this product.

High quality and great price
This is the third one of these i've purchased. Makes a great replacement for corroded connectors and new builds. The best part of this over just buying a connector and cutting off your old one is the fact that the wires are molded into the connector to avoid water intrusion greatly reducing corrosion problems and extending the life of the connector. I have not had any wire color issues that other reviewers complained about.
