About To Begin Towing ~ Found This Broken Connector

Thanks for checking my post! We are gearing up to tow for the first time. When looking under my RV to see what type of connection I needed I found this (picture attached). I am having a hard time finding what parts I need. Also, will the cable I attach from amazon fit my setup? Thanks!

Top photo is a standard 7-pin trailer connector, will fit most TTs and FWs. Bottom photo is a standard 6-pin (round pins). They are not compatible. Don't know what your Amazon cable is.

That is the normal connection between the RV and the toad. The Amazon cable that you have is a 7 pin to 6 connection and should work well.

Not sure why there is a 4 pin connector as well - not normally used on an RV although it doesn't look like there are any wires connected to it.

I use my 4 pin connector all of the time.

Right turn, left turn, tail lights and ground on my tow dolly.

That's all you need if using surge brakes.

"Etrailer", (https://www.etrailer.com/), should be able to fix you up with the correct adapter to mate that 6 pin receptacle on your toad to either the 7 pin. (or the 4 pin), trailer receptacle on your coach.

Looks like the BlueOx cable you have will do the job but, unless you have a cover for both the 6 pin and 7 pin female connectors, I suggest you replace them with new assemblies with covers to protect them from road grime.
