Watch the depth, usually the issue when replacing. They tend to go deeper than 1-1/2".
yes, that's been the problem. I've been to four auto parts stores, and even bought one replacement thinking they all must be universal. Not so. This one is shorter than the ones in cars.
The ones in the Airstream are not all interchangeable, either. The ones in the non-aluminum installations are longer than the one short one I need. A pity they didn't just make them all the same and interchangeable. That would have made a lot more sense than stocking two different styles.
I bought one of the threaded plastic ones from the internet ( I don't use Amazon any more) but it too is too long. The lugs on the back contact the aluminum outer shell of the trailer, and are not amenable to being bent to 90 deg. angles.
I put a screw in it from the inside and it's making connection again. The issue seems to be a missing part from the center of the bulkhead connector side.
