Yeah dinkum' ! The rep from K.T. cables,the guys who do all the fun stuff for wiring up our rigs,zip ties,krimp on terms etc..Well ! Your gonna love these..You know how we all lost those little screws that hold the Utilux female socket in..Forget that..These units just split open and it gets better..The plug has a proper little handle to pull it out..Wait! There's more ! Both the vehicle mounted socket and the trailer plug have a LED for each wire so you know instantly if all systems are go.Better to have these little lites lite up than the flashing red 'n blue ones as you are invited to pull over..Heck! I'm like Big Kev "I'm excited" .a little voice says "He's been to long in the bush"..Nope! I have no vested interest but wish I did. (Plugs etc made out of that tuff poly black gear they make poly pipe out of.Our poly pipe from our dam has been out in the hot sun 15yrs and still reasonable frexible "Why don't you bury it?" yeah sure..That's work)!MPG:8!

Sounds like a good idea, where can we buy these plugs?

Hi Rob..As KT Cables supply almost all the auto and auto elec shops (we will probably stock the round Utilux™ type ones also,even though our main producst are bolts) so doubt you will have any problems..Oops ! My manager jus mentioned they will not be avail to gen public(us) until 1st May..I imagine they have a web site,prob Do a little Google if in trouble. I had made up a tester that I won't need anymore..Worked great..Is just a seven pin plug with seven wires with bare ends coming out and a festoon bulb soldered to the earth wire..Makes it so ezy to test rig,but these new LED plugs will also let us know if plug is making a all connections.My theory is that trailer lites that are LED equiped will burn ok,even with a lousy connection,where as incandesant globesdrawing much more power need a good,clean connector.I think LED trailer lites will work on both 12 & 24 volt or anywhere in between..."theory" an opinion or supposition..a statement of the principles on which a subject is based

Bear in mind,the KT Cables plug & socket each have the LEDs embedded in the case of each,so they are lit up at all times power is supposed to be flowing to the trailer lites..Looks a normal plug or socket but has a little row of LEDs..Can do a "hands free" visual check at any time..I checked the "Trailervision" site and it appears to my casual eye that they have testers to ensure the outlet is powered before pluggin in..But what happens later on ? The inbuilt setup from KTs is showing power flow at all times."Beware of imitations" I was shown the KT product and all units have KT branded into the plastic.Not stuck on.

"Beware of imitations" ???

Trailer vision has been around for a while now - might just be that the product you're proposing to distribute/sell is the imitation!?
