Wireing a M101A2 Military Trailer for Civilian Use

About: I am a teacher who enjoys environmentally responsible woodworking. Most evenings will find me in the shop working with my now 8 year old son Shay who is both my greatest helper and biggest fan.

US military surplus trailers are a great way to get a tough, versatile little trailer for home use.  Making sense of the massive NATO wiring plug however can be difficult.  Rather than ripping out and starting over, in this video I sow you how to convert the NATO wiring to regular civilian wiring you can use at home.  In addition I provide an accurate wiring diagram so you know colors and pin numbers to make your conversion easy.  Be sure to check the video description for additional important information.
