Broken electrical connector in copilot chair - anyone know who made this connector?

There is a broken 4-wire connector on my copilot chair. The repair would be easy if I can find the manufacturer of the connector. It is located up behind the back rest part so i cant really get to it to cut/crimp new connector in place. If I can get the connector housing, I think it would be easier to remove the spade connectors from the old connector and insert into a new connector housing.

Does anyone know who made the Copilot chair (Flexsteel perhaps)? Or recognize this connector?

I did find a tag under the chair that has customer name "Monaco Coach /Beaver", Model # "5834-10", KF order "97918", etc.... ship date "11-22-04". But no manufacturer name.

I have been looking through on-line wire connector catalogs (Molex) but have not found anything yet like mine. Who else makes these connectors?

After hours of searching electrical catalogs, I gave up. No one seems to make a flat blade (spade) connector anymore. Its all pin and barrel type terminals now.

I used a 4-wire connector I had in my spare parts bin. I wasn't sure I could get my hands far enough into the space to cut and crimp a new connector on, but I managed to get the job done.

Just get a new male and female plug (for the number of wires) and change them both as a pair.

That is what I ended up doing. Connector in top picture is what I used.

Not certain on the Beavers, but the Monaco diesel coaches have Villa International seats and furniture.

For next time. Mike (562) 404-8111

Good idea, update and change both ends of connectors.

If you note the time line from when you first posted your solution and I posted my recommendation you’ll see just how slow of a one fingered poster I am!

Thanks. That's good to know (Villa) in case I ever need parts like a motor (assuming they still sell parts for a 2005 seat).

Hi Mike; Just from what I know, the letters you posted that show KF order 97918. The KF is for Kustom Fit. Not sure I spelled it right. On my seat belts in my 01 Windsor where the shoulder belt buckle attaches, KF is molded into the cover for the belt release. I Put Kustom Fit after market seats in my 1980 Jeep CJ-5 back in 1985 or 1986. I know they are out of business, but don't know what year they stopped making seats. Can't be too long after Monaco used them for your 05 Beaver.

Hey Relax!

This is not the end of the World!

Find the next Ham Fest ( Ham Radio parts swap meet), junk yard, or car show swap meet and you will find a number of used connectors or dealers selling new.
You can also take a 6 or 8 blade connectors from another application and only use 4 of the available slots.

In an emergency properly rated barrel or spade connectors with exterior insulation to avoid exterior shorts may be used.

Any marine store like west marine will have those for emergency use.

Look up electronic supply companies on the internet and check with them.

Good morning Mike; Thanks for that info. I was talking to a Jeep accessory supplier years ago and when asked about Kustom Fit, I was informed that they had gone out of business and I never followed up on that information. Thanks for the link.

If it is just the locking tab use some good 3m electrical tape to hold them together. Leave a tiny bit folded over so it is easy to remove.

Contact Allied Electronics and they should be able to put you on it.
