I had a 7 pin plug installed when I bought my first A-frame (so now I've got both a 7 and a 4) however, I drive a Wrangler not a Ranger.

Read your thread from your trip to the great white north! Enjoyed it.. Picking mine up this Friday. Leftover 2012.. Guess it was an orphan since its smaller.. Great for the 2 of us though.

Good answer! Functioning camper brakes are vital, especially if pushing the towing limits of your vehicle.

As RenFaire Camper also stated, the battery charge wire is also an added benefit of the 7 way plug. Remember, the battery needs to have a good charge for the break-away brakes to function.

With camping season approaching, let's all remember "Safety First".

hth,

For some odd reason, the A-Liner dealer that originally installed my 7 pin plug neglected to run the wire that charges the battery. I had to look after it later myself.
I don't know how normal it is for dealers to installed them half-(deleted)ed like that but you may wish to double check that they do it properly.

Electronic brakes are really nice. It's worth an upgrade to have that, plus the battery recharge.
