What kind of socket do you have on the jeep? When I put mine together it came with a 7 pin connector for the toad but was not wired. There is a wiring standard for the 7 pin socket. I looked that up and connected the wires as appropriate. If you have a 4 wire socket on the toad you could either replace it with a 7 wire plug, or you might be able to find a conversion plug at your local uhaul.

The cover over the 7 pin on the coach usually has the wiring diagram on it.

Hi richz,on my 06wrangler I used bulb and socket. from the coach I used a 7pin adapter to a 6pin receptacle. I used 6 pin cable from MH to jeep front bumper. I put bulb and socket into 6pin receptacle on the jeep along with an extra wire in that 6pin that feeds the battery on the toad from the MH. I use patriot brake system and have never had a dead battery on the toad. Probably didn't explain very well, but it works!

This is super simple. Just got to Wal-mart, Camping World, or anyplace else that sells tow wiring stuff, and buy a 7 pin to 4 pin adapter. It'll be, maybe, $10. Simply plug that into the motor home, your 4 pin wire harness will plug into that. Heck, if you were nearby I have a couple and would give you one.

I always look for the simple solutions.

These days they have an adaptor for everything you could think of. Slick as snot.
