I'll second Phil's comment! I took his advice a couple of weeks ago when I
put mine up. I varied slightly from him. They make six pin trailer plugs
as well. So I used a six pin and a 4 pin just so that I wouldn't get them
But he's right - they are waterproof, easy to use and work great!
Thanks for the tip, Phil!
The trick to using the 4 pin plugs is to put one set pair on the shack end
of the rotor cable ie female on 4 of the wires and male on the other four.
then reverse the procedure on the rotor side of the connection. When done
right you can't plug it in wrong.
This also works for the control lines on remote switches and etc.I use the
six pin plugs for my Sixpack and Stack Match units on my tower.
