I just bought a 2004 kruzer sarasota trailer that has an interior light and light on the spoiler. it has a 6 pole light plug. Does anyone know what kind of harness I need (manufacturer name and part number) for my 2007 gl1800 goldwing non-abs but premium audio? my first post hope I'm doing it right.

My best guess would be to get hold of Kruzer and ask them why six poles. The bike has five native sources, so you must need to double up on one of the five pins to supply the trailer with everything. I have done the bike (5) to trailers (4) with kits that can be had from Cyclemax and others. To do six, one needs to know what is there, and adapt to it. If it was me, I would still get the adapter kit from Cyclemax that takes the trailers light power from the battery as opposed to through the bikes wiring looms.

I suspect the six pole connector on the trailer was installed by the previous owner/s. They are easier to find than the five pole connectors.

You will have to do a little testing to determine which wire goes where on the trailer.
Normally a four wire system is connected like this:
The Yellow wire goes to the LEFT turn light.
The GREEN wire goes to the RIGHT turn light.
The BROWN is for the running lights.

A five wire system is for foreign vehicles. On US made vehicles, the LEFT and RIGHT turn signal wires also control the brakes.
The BRAKE lights are separate on non-USA manufactured vehicles.
The BLUE wire would be attached to the brake lights.

If there are six wires then the sixth wire may be attached to the dome light from the battery. If you have a dome light in the trailer that is connected to the battery, you would use the wire color of your choice. I connected my dome light to the running lights.

Cyclemax has the trailer harness you need. It should be an Isolated harness so that you do not overtax the on-board wiring of your GL1800. The wires are light duty and you will need heavier duty wiring for your trailer.
GL1800 Isolated Trailer Harness (B52-694) ... 120/147725.

They also have four and five wire trailer connectors. They also have 5 to 4 Pin Trailer Harness Converter adapters if you elect to adapt the five wire system of the GL1800 to a four wire system for your trailer.

I went with the isolator and 5-4 wire kit from Electrical connection. It also has a 12V hot that can go back to the trailer. That would take care of the power need for the dome light. The bikes needs to be running or on Acc. for this to work on the EC kit.

Just to clear up a wire color from another post. The blue wire is for a trailer brake controller, not brake lights This wire tells the controller you are using the vehicle brakes.

The round 6 pins plug is the way to go. Small and lightweight.
You'll have 2 spare lines for "x".

I for one do not like the metal 6 pole plug. If you have it mount on the hitch you must live with it on all the time or have to mount in some way into the bike. I walk into now and them. I like the (rubber type) just wire tie it up and out of way when not needed. Pictures are from trailer side (easer to take a picture of).

Wired it via ... L-0212.pdf , I like that it comes with plugs for bike. Making it plug and play. Yes I use the 6th wire for a battery on trailer via a marine isolator. Pull the power for that via an EC power block so only on with switch.
