    New Trailer will have Disc brakes on it. And need to know what everyone did to there plugs? As it has to have the Back up lights hooked up to allow you to back up.
    On my 2004 Chevy 2500-HD it has the big round plug on the back . And the center is backup lights. I hope theres a plug that will fit in it like the one that came with the truck. That will have the 5 flat plug on it?
    Other truck is a 2006 Ford 1/2 ton. it has the standard 4 flat plug on it.
    So the ones out there that has Disc trailer brakes, What did you do?

    Pete, Check at auto zone (if you have auto zone I guess) I got a couple of mine from there, they had several different types also. The ones I have light up to show they are connected but one is a round 7 into the flat 4/5, hope this helps ya.

    Thanks Guys just did a search on the Chevy its going to be easy. But the ford it looks like I will have to mount a wire just for the backup light on it.
