NARVA’s new 7-pin flat trailer socket has a built-in, heavy-duty battery connector for camping, caravanning and boating enthusiasts who regularly tow boats, caravans and trailers with battery-powered on-board equipment.

The 7-pin plug operates the standard stop, tail, reverse and licence plate lights, while also providing up to 50A of power via a heavy-duty battery connector to charge and maintain batteries powering onboard equipment such as fridges.

“This new socket and connector powers things like fridges and freezers while the trailer is being towed, so you don’t arrive at your destination with spoiled food,” says Tim Paterson, National Sales Manager for Giffiths Equipment, which distributes NARVA products in New Zealand.

The socket and connector is compatible with most tow bars.

For added performance, it features silver-plated copper contacts to suit 8mm² (8B&S) cables.

It is available from leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand.
