    Comments about Hopkins Towing Solution Adapter:

    This plug adapter is the best one they have ever had. It's nice being able to see a problem with your trailer wiring due to the bright red leds on this plug. I had a short in my wiring they I didn't know I had till I was pulled over for non working trailer lights. Luckily the nice local police officer only gave me a warning. I went the next day and looked this up online and purchased it along with all new lights and wires. I now check this everytime I go somewhere with my trailer to avoid being pulled over or worse someone running in to my trailer because they did not see it.

      Comments about Hopkins Towing Solution Adapter:

      I needed to haul a u-haul trailer with the truck I usually haul an RV. This device saved me the trouble of rewiring the truck as I only had a 7 prong outlet. It was very easy just to plug this in. Inexpensive also. The only issue was that it would come loose in the socket and had to be checked often.

            Very handy, being able to keep an eye on the vehicle wiring, and be able to pin point quicker, if there happens to be a lighting issue with the item your towing.

              Hooks up to all my trailors with ease. Makes wondering if it is my trailor wiring or truck wiring that has bad connection with the LED.

                  • Q:

                    On this adapter, what does a red blinking upper light mean? The only trailer lights working are the signal and hazard---nothing else. All lights on truck work properly.

                      A:

                      Hi sam, I'm glad to assist you. The lights in this Hopkins Towing Solution Adapter (Part No. 47345) will illuminate when there is a signal showing that the circuits are working. The bottom one will light up when the running lights are working. The center light will illuminate when the left turn signal and brake lights are working. And the top light will illuminate when the right turn and brake lights are working. These lights will tell you that the vehicle itself is sending the proper signals for the directional, running lights and brake lights. They are useful to eliminate the vehicle as being the cause of any wiring problems. It will not tell you of any trailer wiring issues however. If the lights in the adapter indicate that the signals coming out of the vehicle are all operating correctly but the trailer lights are not working, you will have to troubleshoot the trailer.
