CERTAIN TRAILER CABLE MOUNTING BRACKETS HAVE A 'U-SHAPED' CUT OUT THAT ONLY PARTIALLY SUPPORTS THE TRAILER CABLE CONNECTION. PARTIAL SUPPORT OF THE CABLE CONNECTION MAY ALLOW THE MOLDED BOOT AND ELECTRICAL GROUND PIN TO PARTIALLY OR COMPLETELY PULL AWAY FROM THE 7-WAY SOCKET. PARTIAL OR COMPLETE DETACHMENT OF THE CABLE CONNECTION CAN CAUSE REDUCED WATER RESISTANCE AND POTENTIAL LOSS OF ELECTRICAL GROUND. THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY THE TRAILER LIGHTS MAY FAIL TO ILLUMINATE WITHOUT THE OPERATOR'S KNOWLEDGE.
