Thanks for the suggestion and the pic.
when i get a chance im going to go up to storage and see how much extra cable play i have and if i have enough i will probably just replace the plug on the cable just aft of the crimp.
JC says that the 7 pin connector cable that came with our AS is 12 feet long. there must be an extra six feet stuffed inside the a frame someplace because its not 12 feet from my bumper to the front of the trailer where the connector box is supposed to be.
Save that, will proably go with the temporary liquid rubber and electrical tape fix, then have the replacement done at some point.
