Seven pin connector disconnected

Hello. I am a VERY new popup owner. I seem to break something every time I take it out.

This time I pulled my tow vehicle up while the 7pin was still attached (brilliant) and this came off the camper. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to reattach this. I have a forest river 1940f popup.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much.

Looks like you should just be able to plug it back in. Check the trailer side for 5 little round prongs & one covered & just plug it back in. Looks pretty obvious as nothing broke....just pulled apart.

Can you add a pic of the trailer side where you think the wire came from?

Easy fix. What you have done is pulled the connector plug from the camper to the tow vehicle apart. I would also inspect the plug wiring, just because, for any other possible damage from being pulled apart.

Look under the tongue of your camper, and you will see the other end of the pin connector. Most likely on the right side ( looking at it from the front ) of the tongue frame, underneath, AND along the frame, along with other trailer wiring. That is where mine is connected as well.

And then just plug them back together. It may be a bit tough getting them back together so don't get discouraged if it doesn't plug in easily.

what Briorick said. I will emphasize his suggestion to check for any possible damage.

Here is the GOOD News...........You got that one out of your system, you will most likely NEVER do that again.

Now for the bad news.............There are Hundreds of other ways to screw up, and most of us have done most of them before you............
We lived through them, so will you
