Coiled trailer wire replacement

Hey guys,

Looking for someone with better googling or a more creative mind than me. Not sure how or why, but my 7-pin coiled wiring connector is cracking all over. Finding 7-pin coiled wire is easy, but finding one with the other quick connect end isn't so easy.

I was also thinking of just putting a new sleeve on that heat shrinks, but I don't see how I can get it over either end.

Thoughts on where to find this, or other solutions to cover the wires?

Mine is the exact same way, not as bad. 2013 as well, guess that is the shelf life of these. I didn't notice if mine has the quick connect on the end or not. I haven't taken mine apart yet, this was next on my to do list. I did see these with the bare end on etrailer.com.

Call Boatmate. I have a buddy who had his coiled wire harness come loose and chewed the end up while towing. They sent him a replacement, I believe it is just like the one you are working with but did not actually see him replace it. He said it just clipped in.

Mine was the same on my 2013 I just purchased. Trailer sat outside in storage. I called Boatmate and purchased a new one. I would think you could do the same for a MC trailer.

Coiled wire with almost any kind of plastic or rubber won't last long in your climate and, while it's a nice idea, I think that only Neoprene would last long enough to make it worthwhile. Maybe a straight harness with a spring attached to the middle and hung from the tow vehicle would work as well, but wouldn't crack- they do this with the hoses and wires on semi tractors.
