Ellis is my middle name & I'm in Alice.

Thanks Gob 4 looking up the sheet. I had the towbar fitted when I was rear ended. The insurors saw sense as the TJM step-tow was the same price as the Toyota flimsy step. As such the wiring was never done & has been at the bottom of a ong list.

Any way hanks again.

Ellis, it would appear not all 7 pins are wired the same way. My connections are different from those given above, as are the wire colours. I suggest you break-out the trusty multi-metre to check yours.Be good, or be quick.
