My 6 plug adapter is impossible to plug into my new truck, is this normal?

Resistance is more than I can comfortably push, have used a tool to bang it together. Can't keep doing this

I used a little Silicone Dielectric Grease on ours for a while when it was new.

I lube plugs with Fluid Film. Also keeps corrosion down.

They my be used in some places, but that does not change my idea. It is a piece of chicken to just hook up the 6 wires in the 7 point plug. Then there is no need for adapters, because anything with a hitch heavy enough for the horse will be wired for the lights. And when you or the horse step on the plug, you can buy a new one in BFE. And most people that work on them have the map between their ears, which shortens time it takes to figure out what is wrong...

This, IMHO, is a good idea for the life of the socket..

Thanks. I've thought I should do that. I like the idea of a spray, though, like Loydmeeks suggested.
