7 way trailer plug Cover

I'm looking for a cover for my 7 way trailer side connector. The only one I found was 7-Pin Plug Cover » Fastway Trailer Products . But at over $10 for it (including shipping) is just too much for a little piece of rubber. I like it, if I could find one locally for the list price I'd buy it.

Does anyone have any homemade covers?

I keep wanting to come up with a dummy plug-in mounted to the trailer. The problem with just capping it is that if the plug is hanging in a way where water can run down the cord and either creep into the cap or the back side of the plug it would be captive and cause even worse corrosion. I'm wanting a dummy mounted vertically that's sealed from the top where no water can get to the plug at all.

7 way trailer plug Cover

I use a 7 pin to flat 4 pin adapter. It has a rubber cap for the 4 pin open end.

Your local Camping world probably stocks them. Ours does.

I have had one for years now. It does not "seal" as I define sealed as airtight, but it is a snug fit and certainly water resistant.


It will keep the dust out. That is why I use it.

I think this is a great idea, for me at least. When the trailer pigtail is not connected to my truck, I tuck it under the propane tank cover. The 4-7 adapter will add just the right amount of additional protection I am looking for.

Thanks!

Bob
