Trailer hook ups

About to rent some rubber for the winter, how can I go about making sure that I have the correct electrical connections for the trailer? Is it based off the manufacturer? My Tacoma now has a plug that as three females with a male at the end. Thanks in advance.

That plug is the standard 4 flat plug for small trailers. You can go online to a site like E-trailer and get an adaptor for any trailer plug configuration for your specific vehicle

Usually towing rigs have a seven prong bulky round plug. It's unlikely your trailer will have anything other than the four straight

Off topic, but I had to get a 7 round to 5 prong straight adapter for my buddies boat trailer. They add the reverse lights to disable the automatic tongue sensing brake assist that would lock up the brakes if you tried to backup without it

The 7 to 4 adapters are 9 bucks at any auto parts store. I have one in every rig, and one in the tool box. All my old trailers had 7 pins, my current trailers have 4 pins.
