7 pin trailer cable and plug

Does anyone out there have a good high quality cable connector for the trailer to tow vehicle. I'm tired of the rotten copper connections on the trailers plug. Is there a stainless steel spring loaded plug connector?

Solid copper is your best choice for electrical connections. Get some quality electrical contact cleaner and use it religiously. You wont have any more problems.

My plug is in bed of the truck and I've not yet had any problems. If your so inclined, I ran across this a while back. I've been tempted, but not yet pulled the trigger. EZ Connector

Rockfordroo has the right idea. Keep the contacts clean and keep the crud out of them and they will be fine. I have winter camped for years and the brine they spread here in Ontario does a number on the connections. Each spring I clean them and coat them and I've been trouble free.

The problem I'm having is the copper connections in the plug itself from the trailer are spreading open and I'm losing the connection.
