I have seen four pin, five pin, and six pin switches, but I don't think I have ever seen a seven pin, so not sure about that. I am pretty sure those brown wires are an electronic lock for the motor....

Can't remember where I found it before ordering, but it is on the label of the Trailer Aid and I just went out and checked the one in my truck. It says "maximum trailer weight 15,000 pounds" @ 70...
