Hope that helps some!
Thanks for the reply!

I DO have a 7-pin connector on my truck, but only a 4-pin on the trailer (I currently use an adapter).
I would like to rewire the trailer to be used by the 7-pin, and be independent from the truck's lights. This way I can turn on the interior lights and/or exterior spot lights without having to turn on my truck lights.

I was just curious if anyone else had done the same thing with their trailer, and could maybe give me some pointers?

I am wondering if I could cut the 4-pin off of the trailer wires and install a 7-pin plug on the end....but I am not sure which wire I would need to move to get the constant power, or if I would have to add a wire to the trailer to get the constant power?
