    Anyone know what this white connector is fitted to Autotrails . It's the plug and socket near the top.. Ignore the big one, they bought it by mistake..

    It looks like a 'Multicomp' 4.2mm connector. Obtainable from CPC.co.uk (Farnell), but looking at the current (no pun intended) catalogue they only seem to be available as 2 or 4 pole.

    Do they want the male or the female?
    Personally I would just replace them with a readily available connector

    Hi Tonka
    Given the one I referred to comes with the both male and female parts why don't they just replace both parts? Or am I being stoopit!

    We use them in the workshop for ease of adding things in. but I agree with Paul that simpler to replace both sides if the original isn't available
