Have you ever asked yourself what is the center connector on a 7 blade plug? The purpose of each blade will vary between a trailer end plug and a car end plug, they will both have a blade for tail/marker, charge, right turn, brake, ground and left turn.

The center connector on a 7 blade plug is for auxiliary in case you want to keep the fridge going while on the road - it’s always nice to arrive to your destination knowing you have a cold drink waiting for you!

Here’s an illustration which may help guide you through the wiring process for a 7 blade trailer harness:

If you are looking at the inside of the trailer connector where the wires mount to the terminals starting at the notch at the top and working clockwise: 1:00 is Black and 12 volt power 3:00 is Green and Right Turn and Brake 5:00 is Blue and Brake Controller 7:00 is White and Ground 9:00 is Yellow and Left Turn and Brake 11:00 is Brown and Tail and Running Lights Center is Purple and is Optional Reverse

Hi Ken, On a 7-way trailer plug the ground will always be the white wire, and the brake will be the blue wire.
