I have a 7-way connector on the Forester that looks like this
and hangs a bit below the bumper, and the other day I backed up and hit it on something and broke the casing. (Rigid and not very strong plastic- the mount is fine but it broke off the plug- it was an integrated mount.)
Anyway, although the wiring is all still good, I want to replace it, and I was wondering if there is anything that isn't so vulnerable to damage. I can see backing into a curb or something while camping and then not having lights. I'm considering just using one without a mount and zip-tying it to the car somewhere.
