When wiring the tow vehicle connector, with the possible exception of pickups and SUV’s with factory installed trailer wiring, wire color alone should not be relied on, always test and match the function to the appropriate terminal.

Most RV travel trailers are wired to match the 7-pole plug connector colors but they should be tested when replacing a connector to be sure the function matches the terminal.

It should be noted below that the center terminal is labeled as an auxiliary circuit but is commonly used for backup lights, not as a ground terminal as many try to use it.
