Default Trailer power cord rubbed and broke some wires Help

Hello Again Forum,
I was not payng attention and the power cord off the trailer rubbed on the roadway while towing..
I now have two worn through wires (broken) effecting my brake and stop light on one side. The wear point is about 2 1/2 feet from te connector end.
Question. Can the cable be repaired, etc. I don't have the funds for a complete new cable at tis time. A premanent repair sure sounds good

You could go to your local autoparts and buy some splices for the correct gage of the power cord wires and just cut the cable where it wore and splice all the wires back together.

Or if you still have enough cable behind the damaged section just cut it there and attach a new 7 way connector.

Option 3 for $25 you can get a new one here:
