Caught your idea for running a new cable directly to the junction box as opposed to a connector.
Why did you go under the trailer and up as opposed to through the old hole from the connector?
What did you do with the old hole, an external patch?
As a side note, does anyone ever "catch" the umbilical cord between the hitch and the frame and sever it? I have done it twice (over 30+ years of towing my 1970), both times cut the "brake" circuit and was able to fix it with wire nuts and tape. Now I try to "remember"
to snake it through the hitch lock pin. Anyone have any other ideas on how to corral the beast??
Sorry, don't mean to hijack the thread....
