Bargman Cable Ends

Have a Bargman 7-pin male connecter that has the outside black sheathing pulling back from the plug leaving the various wires underneath exposed. Any suggestions?

Same here, but it's been that way for several years now.

I'm assuming you mean the wires at the back of the connector?

You may be able to use some heat shrink tubing:

I think he means the trailer side.
There was considerable debate about which end is male and which is female over on FGRV one time. Don't know that it was settled.

Doesn't look like the tubing will work as you cannot slip it over the plug onto the cable, right? It would be nice if there were a collar from the plug end clamping over the cable to better secure it. I am talking about the plug end that connects to the vehicle.

Don't know the design of the plug, but some of them can be rewired or removed.
