7 pin connector for older truck

We have a 99 Chevy Silverado that has only the 4 pin flat connector for towing, and I want to convert it to the 7 pin connector set up. Does anyone know a place that sells a male, 7 pin connector with the pigtail wires on it so I can wire it into the truck. We already have the brake controller which is on our Traverse right now, and will put it in the truck if I can find the connector. Tried the local CW here and also O Rileys but none of them have it.
Any help is appreciated.

Have not seen one with the wires already attached. I know you can buy just the male and female connectors and then add the correct color wire yourself. You mentioned "male" connector and then said you would put it on the truck. The female connector goes on the truck and the male on the RV. I had the local RV repair shop install a connector in the bed of the truck and it was pretty inexpensive. Also, U-Haul is another place to look.

Stan, the camper has a female 7 pin connector, and that's why I would need a male connector for truck. The traverse I am using right now as a tow vehicle has a male plug. I will check out u haul tommorow and see what they have.

Lloyd I will check out link.

Thanks for the replys.

Just a follow up, I bought the 7 pin connector at the U Haul store down the road. It comes with all wires and connectors, all I have to do is to hook it up and the brake controller. Hopefully tomorrow or this week.
Thanks for all the tips and links.

They use to make a "T" or "Y" connector the went in between the factory connector to all the lights, power & brake controller so you didn't have to splice all the wires, might check before cutting wires.

We had time yesterday to hook it up and all works great. Traveling Texas I looked for t but not there. The only long wire we had to run was for the blue that powers camper brakes and black for charging battery. All other regular lights, we used the 4 pin connector that is built in on the new 7 pin connector. Was no need to hook up back up lights, as the camper has no reverse lights on it, which in my opinion it should. We have a Prodigy 2 controller, and ready to make a pull with the truck now.
Thanks to everyone
