    As much as I like the idea, I don't like adding more connections as that is where most troubles occur. You need to add the trailer socket. Also makes for an easy grab for a thief.

    I have this type of cable on a boat trailer and yes they do look good. It was on the trailer when I purchased it and after using it I would not add it to any of my other trailers. It does add a connector (possible point of failure) and is easily removed. Mine will drag on the ground if not supported. I was going to shorten it so it would not drag, but that put more stress on the connectors.

    I have one and like it. The way my trailer is wire, an extension is required to hook it to a truck. If I pull mine off, a thief would have a harder time getting away without attracting attention.
    Remember, Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.

    Did the exact same thing and it works awesome. Looks good too and no worries about droopy wires.

    I say all you need is a hook and a dumb fish...

    My Lowe factory trailer wiring came out in a 4 pin flat connector. The JEtConnex cable works well. I just remove it when i get to the ramp. It is noticeable and therefore a target for thieves. No big deal, it takes seconds to remove it. I am waiting on the new trailer to come home with me so I can see what will work on it.
