New 7-Pin trailer umbilical wiring

I am deep in the restoration of my 53 FC, and I have just rewired all of my tail and running lamps. A new axle is on order, and I want to get my new umbilical setup before it arrives.

I have plans to replace the front aluminum panel on the trailer, and the front floor. I am curious of I should install some kind of junction box that I can wire all the lights and brakes to directly, and then attach that to the frame somewhere. I could then connect the umbilical to this when I get the floor and panel replaced.

Comments, Ideas?

Steve

Steve, I hope this works. Here is a page from my blog on how I did it, including a wiring diagram.

NUTZ,

Where did you mount this panel on your trailer?

Also...where does your cord exit the trailer at?

Steve, I did this on my 1966 Safari. On mine I had a piece of aluminum that was held on by four screws. I dropped this down and in the bellypan the wires were all twisted together and taped. I mounted the connection strip (from the big box store) to the door I removed. I also attached the circuit breaker you see in the corner. That CB is for the electric jack. Half of the cable goes to the rear for running lights and to the fuse panel, the other half is tucked into the frame and comes all the way up to the jack where it exits and has about 2 feet of slack to plug into the TV. I hope this is the answer you were looking for.
