      Difference between 7-pin and 13-pin trailer plugs

      Until 10 years ago, all cars were equipped with 7-pin plugs. Nowadays, cars are equipped with 13-pin plugs. The difference in daily use is really only one function, namely the Reversing light. This is now mandatory to use if the Trailer is equipped with more of them. This provides extra visibility when reversing trailers and caravans. A 13-pole trailer plug has more poles and therefore more functions than a 7-pole trailer plug. A 7-pole trailer plug purely provides the trailer with basic Lights such as indicators, brake lights and fog lights. A 13-pole trailer plug provides reversing lights and a continuous power supply.

      A 13-pole trailer plug provides reversing lights and the supply of continuous current.

      Multicon West or Jaeger trailer plug connection

      We have a trailer plug and socket with a Multicon or Jaeger connection. What exactly is the difference? The Jaeger trailer plug is the new 'standard'. It has a bayonet connection. This ensures that the plug remains firmly attached to the Trailer socket. This makes you much less likely to malfunction while driving. You can also connect a Jaeger Trailer plug to a 7-pin socket using an adapter. Besides the well-known and common Jaeger plug and old 7-pole plugs, there is another model, the Multicon West. This plug fits a 7-pole socket and a 13-pole Multicon West socket. A 7-pole plug also fits in the Multicon West socket. This makes a Multicon West plug as an ideal multifunctional solution. This is especially handy if you have several trailers. However, a Multicon plug does not fit in a Jaeger socket and vice versa. This is because of the bayonet connection. A Multicon West connection is often found on caravans.

      Why choose a 13-pin plug or trailer socket?

      It is compulsory to equip your Trailer with reversing lights

      It has been compulsory since 10 July 2011 to equip trailers, boat trailers, caravans or horse trailers with reversing lights. This is why today all new trailers are equipped with a standard 13-pin trailer plug connection. Trailers up to 6 metres long must have 1 reversing light. Is the Trailer longer than 6 metres? Even then it must have a 13-pole trailer plug.

      Rear fog light is also compulsory

      Since 1 July 2006, rear fog lights must be fitted on caravans and trailers over 750 kg that were brought into use after 31 December 1997. All trailers of a maximum authorised mass of 750 kg or below must be fitted with a rear fog light regardless of the year of manufacture. For trailers built before 10 July 2011, these obligations are no problem at all. So for new trailers, you do need a 13-pin trailer plug for the combination rear fog light and reversing lights.

      Always power your caravan

      A caravan, which often has a battery or refrigerator, cannot be powered with a 7-pole trailer plug. For this, you need a 13-pole plug. This is because these components need continuous current to function. The pole 2 of the 7-pole plug used to be used for continuous current, but since the rear fog light became compulsory, pole 2 is no longer used for continuous current, but for the rear fog light. As a result, you therefore need a 13-pole socket Trailer socket for this. This has therefore become the new standard for new caravans, for example.
