  Santa Fe Springs, CA (November 4, 2009) Phillips Industries is pleased to announce that Vanguard National Trailer Corporation has chosen the Phillips QBOX™ nosebox and STA-DRY® SLIM-7™ wiring harnesses as standard equipment on their trailers. 

Mark Roush, VP of Engineering at Vanguard explained “Vanguard always strives to build the highest quality trailer for our customers.  By adding the Phillips QBOX™ and using Phillips’ wiring harnesses exclusively, we believe that’s a step in the right direction, especially in helping our customers combat corrosion. Phillips Industries has a fine reputation in the industry and we are pleased to include their products on our trailers.” 

The Phillips QBOX™ has 50% more interior room to keep wiring connections organized and pinch-free, even on trailers with multiple supplemental electrical wiring systems.  The QBOX™ is outfitted with Phillips’ award winning QCS2® Quick-Connect Socket so replacing a worn socket is a snap and takes less than 2 minutes.  The housing is durable and weather resistant to keep interior wiring sealed against corrosion, chemicals and extreme weather. 

Phillips STA-DRY® trailer harnesses protect against moisture, corrosion and failure because they are built to withstand the most extreme environmental conditions.    STA-DRY® trailer products provide the best moisture barrier to reduce damage to electrical systems caused by corrosion.
