For those the have 12V
fridges and electric/hydraulic brakes, the 7-pin round is a must have.
It is still a good idea to carry an adapter from 7-pin flat to 7-pin round, in case someone with a standard connector ( which sadly is a 7-pin flat) needs to rescue you.
Uwe & Andy -- I'm so glad I read your posts about the round pin connectors, because when I went to a trailer supply place today to buy a truck-side connector to go with the round pin connector on the Caravel
, the guy spent 5 minutes trying to convince me that I did NOT want a round pin: they were far inferior to the blades, corrode way too easily, you have to saw them off after they corrode, I definitely need to switch to the blade type, blah blah blah. I just smiled, thanked him for his time, bought a round pin connector, and left.
