7 pin trailer light harness

My 7 pin plug on my 2007 is rusted on the inside, so today i got a new one but noticed the wires on the female part on the truck is also corroded and the connectors on the wires are broke.. the dealer said i had to repair as the parts are not available. has anybody fixed the female part with connectores from a parts store?

i can take pics later to better explain.....

i bought a aftermarket plug at a trailer store. my wires were corroded too. the aftermarket plug was the kind with set screws so it was a easy fix. be sure to strip the wires back far enough to get to the good copper. i like to use this stuff called no lox for corrosion. i get it at the electrical supply house we go to. im a electrician.

i used all the factory parts so i didn't lose the use of the factory bracket and the 4 pin connector, i just took the female end apart, bored out the whole thing and used connectors direct to the male part... filled it all in with silicone

i seen the reese one at my parts store but i would of had to use the reese bracket because the mount holes for the 7 pin would not match up and would also have to cut off the 4 pin or hide it.
