What is missing on a 6 pin?. The truck I bought has a six pin on the inside of the bed. How would I convert to the seven pin?

I really don't know. My dad's old horse trailer has that pug i think, and it was handy. I haven't used it in years. Since I wised up and got rid of my hay burners.

Mine is in the column in front of the tailgate on the driver's side. Very convenient. You have to duck under the trailer to hook the emergency brake cable and install the Butch type safety bar plus, the umbilical cord comes out of the back of the pin box which is also convenient.

That's exactly where ours is also. We didn't even know they were installing one when they installed the hitch. DH was pleased with where they located it when he discovered they'd installed it.

I surely didn't like my cord hanging over the tailgate either.


Like oc my cord exits the rear of the pin box as well, I think putting the plug ahead of the hitch towards the cab is asking for trouble imo.
Turning could tangle the cord in the hitch or levers and cuase issues.
Extra length could cause just as many issue's as being to short.
Since I have a slider I have two levers on the left side for the cord to get tangled in.

I am different than some I guess, I like mine at where it is pictured, near the left rear. It isn't hard to reach, plus I can hook the connection up(or leave it connected) while hitching/unhitching and have the added security of being able to stop the trailer if it were to roll by using the electric brakes. Once the rig has been taken off the hitch and is 'settled', I disconnect the electrical connection. I do this even though I have X-Chocks in the wheels. Some say it is dumb. Just being extra careful.

Left rear stake pocket. Used a 7 pin mounting bracker and bolted that to side of the stake pocket. Easy to hook up.
