Nice design. A flat four connector (more or
less, anyway) on a coil cord, and "handles"
to strap it down. But expensive: $60, and
no online ordering yet (I almost bought one
so I could keep the lights hooked up when I
have the tongue extended.

And it might be vaporware.

Nice idea, time to create my own... I think a homemade one could be created for under $20. For $60, it better have Gold Plated connections that won't corrode. I should have asked about the gold plating kit I saw last weekend, just so I could gold plate my trailer light connectors and light sockets!

The problem is gettting everything sealed under
the plastic. It has molded in strain reliefs,
coil cord (try finding a 16 ga. coil cord,
marine grade).

I bet gold wouldn't do much good in a marine
environment. The dissimilar metals would attack
one or the other.
