 How many of y'all have switched to the EZ Connector?  I have had an issue with the Intergrated brake in my 2015 Ram 3500 connecting to the trailer. I was wondering if maybe the truck wouldn't be so darn sensitive with this style of wiring plug.

It is one of those products that looks like a good idea, and may be. but there is a huge draw back which is if you ever need to to tow another trailer, or someone needs to borrow yours you have a compatibility issue. yes you can use adapters but then you add more connections to have problems with. The 7 way blade connector is actually a pretty good connector, and on newer trucks can easily be replaced if you are having issues. the connector is normally just held in by 4 screws, and has another plug on the back. I find a good thing to do is make sure that you add dielectric grease to the connector this will prevent corrosion and helps prevent al ot of issues

In New England, it isn't the plug pins that normally fail, it tends to be the weathersealing where the wires going into the back of the plug connection that fail and lead to corrosion due to road salt...

If you fill that side with dielectric grease it will keep the road salt out, I actually just got done doing it on my trailer as well as hanging a flap of conveyer belting down to block debris from getting in there.  This past year coming home from the Denver Stock show the entire underside side of my truck became and giant Ice cube and made my lights go crazy. There was nothing i could do because it was frozen into a big ice block.
