Toad wiring 2002 Honda CRV

I bought a CRV already wired up and demco baseplate installed, but as I hunt for the MH to toad wiring connection I'm confused.

The RV or course has a 7 way round...the CRV has a four flat connection, but what I can't find is a cable that converts....

While they exist, they do not seem to in this configuration. The CRV has a four flat with 3 female and 1 male (which appears to be "vehicle side" as opposed to "trailer side" which would have 3 male and 1 female.

I cannot find a 3 male 1 female four flat to rv 7 round coiled cable...

I used a standard 7 to four flat, then made an adapter cable. it has four flat (3 male 1 female) on both ends. one end plugs into the car, the other end plugs int the MH 7 to 4 adapter.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

GREAT - Be very careful with that adapter cable, those male pins will have power on them if the MH lights are turned on and that cable is unplugged from the car. NOTE - Yes, If I turn the car lights on, it will back feed thru the cable and power the MH lights, so be careful (Thats why I should have installed diodes, to prevent that)

The way mine works, that adapter cable is about 5 ft long and is taped to the tow bar, one end plugs into the MH, the other plugs into the car. When we remove the tow bar, the cable stays with the tow bar.

I always unplug the cable from the MH first, then unplug the cable from the car. On the car, the four flat sticks out from the front grill.

On mine, I have the lights hard wired into the cars lights, no diodes. I used the female four flat on the front of the car so it would not be shorting out on anything when its unplugged, same reason they use it on the back of the car. :-)

I then pull the pins on the tow bar, remove the tow bar, and put it in the trunk of the car.
