Lights, camera, ooooppps?

Howdy, Ya'll!
Haven't posted for a while. I got the axle, and new shocks installed and got the shell back on my 68 22' Safari. I put in a new floor after I treated the trailer frame and repainted it. I used the old black tank but had a new valve put in. I'm now ready to rewire the lights (tail/stop, backup, turn signals, license plate) and put the belly pan back on.
Can anyone help me find a good source for the connector to use? I'm not interested in restoring this camper to its original condition but will be towing it and need all the lights to work as well as the new electric brakes. No, I do not have the towing vehicle yet. I want a wiring job and connections that will last another ten years at least. Looks like the wiring for the electric brakes is a weak point since they hang out there rather exposed where they exit the hub and could easily get hit and broken.

Use the plastic "Pollack" 7 way connector that has round pins.

Those pins are self cleaning and don't have to be scrubbed like the flat terminals.
