Trailers require electrical hook-ups that make towing safer for you and others on the road. In fact, while each state has its own laws and regulations governing everything from size limits to weight restrictions, the one thing they all have in common is that your trailer must be wired for tail lights, brake lights and turn signals. This is accomplished by connecting your trailer to your vehicle’s electric system. Unfortunately, not all trailer electrical wiring is compatible with the wires of your car, truck, van or SUV. Fortunately, REESE® Towpower manufactures a full line of trailer electrical components for everything you need to get your trailer lights up and running for safe towing. We manufacture T-Connectors, wiring converters, wiring connectors, adapters, brake controls and more to make towing safe for you and the drivers around you. Best of all, our products install quickly and easily with simple do-it-yourself instructions.

Plug In Your Trailer. REESE® Towpower manufactures a full line of trailer electrical connectors to plug your trailer into your tow vehicle's electric system. For more than 70 years, we’ve supplied connectors to the towing industry, original equipment manufacturers, and even the military, so you can rest assured that our products are top-of-the-line when it comes to quality and safety. Our 4-way flat connectors are primarily for light duty trailers that require only limited lighting functions like right and left turn signals, stop and tail lights. We also manufacture 5-way flat connectors where a fifth wire hooks up to your backup lights. This allows you to deactivate the hydraulic surge brakes on your boat trailer when your vehicle is in reverse, so you can back up your trailer without locking the brakes. REESE® Towpower also manufactures a Professional Series 6-way pin connector and a 7-way blade connector for medium to heavy duty trailers – the preferred connector for the towing and RV industries. Our comprehensive line of connector products also includes mounting brackets; 4-way testers to check your vehicle’s lighting circuit; and a polarized connector to connect 12V accessories.

Adapt Your Vehicle to Standard Trailer Light Wiring. Sometimes a converter is needed to get the vehicle’s wiring system to match the trailers system and adding trailer lights can increase the strain on your vehicle's electrical system. Fortunately, REESE® Towpower offers a comprehensive line of tail light converters capable of meeting standard, powered, circuit protected, heavy duty and even multi-plex systems. The model you use depends on your towing vehicle and the type of trailer you aim to tow. Most of our converters will function with either traditional incandescent bulbs or the newer and more popular LED lights found on today's vehicles and trailers. REESE® Towpower manufactures trailer tail light converters that adapt domestic and foreign vehicles with separate turn and stop lights (a 3-wire system) to standard trailer tail light wiring (a 2-wire system). We also manufacture converters that power a trailer’s stop, turn and tail lights directly from your tow vehicle’s battery. Some vehicles have electrical systems that are not designed to handle the power needs of a trailer, so be sure to consult your owner’s manual for recommendations.
