    If you, or someone else who reads this thread, go the route of making an adapter, I've attached the pin information for you below.
    The adapter is easy to make, just get a truck end of a 4-way, and attach the wires as indicated. That way you can use it on any of your CUCVs (or other MVs, after matching bulb voltage).

    Mine ain't necessarily pretty, but it works.

    Cheers

    I want to make an adapter for the military trailer lights to 7 and 4 pole receptacles. I have the connector off a trailer and have labeled the wires..but I want to find correct poles in the military for trailer brakes and power. Add that and it will be stock looking yet functional.

    I was lucky enough that when I bought my truck, the previous owner had already installed a flat 4 connector, 7 pin round, and still had the military connector. All work as should. Even have trailer brakes and a receiver to go along with the pintel. I can tow near anything!

    How about using backup light circuit for electric brakes? I don't know of any trailers having backup lights. Good for 15 amps. It has 12/24 volt constant for the battery brake backup. Hazard if used outside of my design is 12 volts applied to backup lights, should pose no hazard. Just no brakes.
