Cliff, go to your local auto parts discount store and check out their
selection of trailer light connectors. The most common one you will
find is flat, supports 4 conductors and is polarized.
Have 8 rotator wires? Buy two sets and use colored heat shrink or tape
or get a can of your favorite color of spray paint and paint one
matching pair some nice color.
Works for me.
