    Be handy if somebody could check if your 5 socket looks the same
    looks like the socket cover needs removed abd turned 60deg


    The slot and pin plus 3 guides don’t seem to line up
    Can’t plug it onto the car
    Just checking if anybody else has had the problem

    If the receiver and plug have the same number of pins I can’t see a problem. You put it in at and turn it 90 degrees clockwise to lock.

    Checked with Land Rover
    Nobody seems to have a clue
    I’m convinced the cover on the socket
    Is wrong

    The colar has twisted in the plug. The caravan should have come with an alignment tool to correct this, it can be done without but it is a pain in the arse. Have had it happen a couple of times now
    Try googling 13 pin colar alignment

    This is how the caravan plug should look in unlocked state.


    Try partially inserting plug into socket so the square section starts to engage then gently turn outer collar on plug to return to correct algnment. That was how mine was just now when I went to take picture.
