Should be able to buy at any uhaul store or auto parts store or camping trailer sales store. Pretty common item. Good luck in your search.

Actually I do not know why you requiresix prongs. The bike itself should only have five. Unless you are charging an extra battery or running extra lights on the camper you should only require a five prong plug. I would do a light tester check to see what each wire does and only use the five wire plug if you cannot find a six. But I know they exist because I have seen them. There is a 4, 5, and 6 prong wiring system. I have a 4 wire on my trailer. I had to use an adapter to take my wing from 5 wires down to 4. Good luck

If you cant find a flat plug maybe you can go with a round.
The round are easy to find and not hard to wire.

Try a Northern Tool store, I've seen all kind of plugs in there that other stores don't have. Like Sethan12 mentioned, all Goldwings are a 5-wire system and most of us use a 5 to 4 wire converter for our trailers.

You have a GM weatherpack plugs. Most late model GM's use these anywhere water may be present. I used them all the time building limos. This is just one place I found really quick that handles them: http://www.electerm.com/packardweather.html

It takes a special pair of crimpers to make the connection soild. They dont make a 5-pin, which is probably why you have a 6-pin connector. The next one down is a 4-pin. Do a search for "GM weatherpack connectors", you'll find more places that handle them than you can shake a stick at. Hope this helps...

I agree sethan12, I only need 4 wires but thats what it has on it,and if I could stay with the same, I was gonna stick with it.



Thanks alot da_bull, :banana:(mana added) I would have never found that thing.:headbanger::headbanger:

I found the whole kit @ summitracing.com for 11.95,It says it takes a special tool to crimp it but it just so happens I have it.



I guess the PO wanted something fool proof from the elements is why he went with this type plug.



Anyhow,thanks guys for the help:clapper::clapper:
