Mounting your 7 pole wire when not in use

A little trick I saw today in trailer life magazine that I thought was clever. Rather than leave the 7 pole wire from your camper just hanging when not connected to your tow vehicle you can mount it using a Mag light D cell flashlight mounting bracket. Brackets only cost around 6 dollars. Here is link with the picture of the bracket

Only $4.78 at Amazon.

I use appropriately sized PVC pipe unions (with a screw through the wall) and broom handle clips to mount Mag-lite sized and "Tactical" lights all over the rig.
A flashlight is never out of reach.

Looks like even Bella has her own fly swatter.
