Help Needed: Bunkhouse 6-Pin Square Plug to 4-Pin Flat Adapter

Hello all,

If there are any older Bunkhouse owners, I just bought an '03 in like-new condition from a friend of mine who passed away. It has a 6-pin square plug, and I've got the 6-pin square to 5-pin flat plug adapter for my 1800, but I'd like the option to pull this camper with my car as well, and that will have a 4-pin flat plug. I'm in the process of installing a hitch on my car right now, I'll be running the wiring in the next day or two.

Meanwhile, I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who knows where I might find a 6-pin square to 4-pin flat plug adapter, or has anyone made of their own and can share the wiring diagram? Bunkhouse was purchased by Bushtech back around 2011 and I contacted them, but they just don't have any parts or information available on the older square plugs.

Thanks in advance for your help!

JUst a thought, not sure it would work, but try adding another conversion from the 5 to 4 pin it might work.????

Here is a link to E Trailer. If they don't have it, no one will. I am not seeing an adapter for a 6 pin square. They are not used much anymore. The round 6 pin RV type plug is now the standard for a 6 wire system. Much more durable and easier to plug in and unplug. If I were you, I would just switch everything over to one style plug. That way you don't need all the adapters. I did this with my two motorcycle trailers. My MC camper uses a 6 wire because it has brakes. My cargo trailer only uses a 4 wire system, but I have a 6 wire plug on it so it fits the plug on the bike. No adapters needed.

Agree, you need to find a wiring diagram for the trailer. Or, trace out what wire goes to what. That way, you can find out if you really need a 6 wire plug, or can you combine say running lights that may have two wires down to one. The manufacture may have put a 6 wire plug on the trailer even though they are only using 4 wires. It is then set up for brakes even though your trailer may not have them and is only using 4 wires. Just something else to check.

If they use the typical color code for the trailer wiring then changing your plug would be a breeze. Check the color on the Bunkhouse trailer and see if it is typical.
