Adapter plug

DEFINITION: Adapter plug

How does it work?

An adapter converts signals from the 13 poles to the 7 poles. You have several adapter pieces that go from 7-pin to 13-pin and vice versa. In this way, the trailer lighting communicates with the on-board computer of the vehicle. In practice, you will see that if you indicate the direction to the right, for example, the trailer will also flash on the right. It is always recommendable to connect it to the right voltage, you do not want it to overheat. Differences in value(s) can cause short circuits and you want to avoid this of course.

They can be easily ordered from the TRALERT® dealer portal. One thing to keep in mind when installing an adapter plug is that the tabs must be properly seated in the socket. The so-called notch must fit exactly in the notch and in the socket. Check carefully that the adapter is connected to the multiple socket.
