Hi

Try here:-

Is this what you need?

I've used this company before, they are usually quite cheap, although you may get a better deal elsewhere if you shop around.

We have one.It's OK but we have to use a bungee chord to secure the extra length of wire-otherwise it would trail on the road.
Having our 12N and 12S sockets changed to a 13 pin tomorrow.40 to be charged by a mobile fitter.Well worth it in my view as the adapter can only really be a temporary fix and I worried about it trailing.

When we purchased our latest van 18 months ago that has a13 pin plug I purchased the 13 pin to 2 socket adapter from our dealer. He demonstrated how to use the lead without bunges or lead trailing on the ground. The leads from the adapter plug are around 9 inches in length with the 2 plugs on one end and the 13 pin socket on the other. The longest lead in the set up is the 13 pin lead. I was told to connect the adaptor and then wrap the 13 pin lead around the bellows on the tow hitch. On my van this takes 2 revolutions and leaves the adaptor hanging down a short distance, well clear of the ground, before the plugs attach to the 12n & s sockets. The 13 pin lead wrapped around the bellows does not foul them or the Alko handle. We use our van for 3 months every year with many different trips and this arrangement has proved very successful. I can't at present consider changing to a 13 pin system as I tow many other trailers using the old system.

Hi I use a couple of cable ties (releasable ones) to tie the leads of the two van leads to the top of the Alko stabiliser handle, this seems to work well so far--including a few hundred miles in France earlier this year.;)

Have you considered buying a http://www.towsure.c...in_Plug_Adaptor and changing the car to 13 pin?This will let you use the van without the extra lead and still use the other trailers with this plug/socket adapter.

Wrapping the cable around the bellows could cause it to become trapped when the over run device actuates.

Prior to converting the caravan to 13 pin I wrapped my adaptor cable around the jockey wheel stem.

We have one which is no longer in use as we have changed our towcar to 13 pin.
It is no use to us now-used twice.PM me if you are interested in buying it;I'm sure we can agree a price plus postage.
