Why don’t you just cut off the US plug and fit your own? Where in Europe are you, I know that US trailers are illegal for road use in the UK and would suspect the same applies to most of Europe if it’s not a CE approved trailer.

I did a quick search. I was able to find 13 pin euro to 7 pin euro adapters, and 7 pin euro to 13 pin euro adapters, but not a single 7 flat pin US to 13 pin euro adapter...

So, assuming that you don't have the non-CE mark issues that Davross brought up, I would also suggest that you just purchase a 13 pin euro connector, cut the connector off the boat, and wire the new one in its place.

Good Luck...

Hadzinak, you don't need a blueprint for that. You just cut it and splice it. You'll finde the EU. code at every gas station., or mobilhome deallership.

I think this page may help with the color codes for US trailers.
