Bargman Wiring 50-67-106 Review- Video

Bargman Wiring 50-67-106 Review

Today we are going to betaking a look at the bargemen seven layered molded connector. It is going to measure 18 feet long. The pre wired seven layered trailer end sealed connector is going to give you plenty of length to run your wiring where you need to, for your trailer. It is made with self cleaning contacts and it is molded, so it's really a great job that encapsulating the terminals and the wires, to form one weather resistant, non corrosive assembly. The plug has the finger tabs for easy disconnecting and it is going to have the raised area right here that slides in the connector on your vehicle to make sure the plug is inserted correctly. The cable is insulated. You can see that nice casing right there, around the wires. That is going to add plenty of protection to the wires, but it still gives you the flexibility it needs. more

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford Ranger

Here on this 2008 Ford Ranger, we'll go ahead and review and install part number 18252, the Draw Tite 4-Pole Hardwire Kit with a circuit tester. This is what it looks like when it's installed on our Ranger truck. This wire harness will allow you to replace the 4-Pole connector that's pre-existing on this truck like we did here, or you can use this on a vehicle that does not have a 4-pole wire harness at all. One of the best reasons to have this installed on your truck is is that it replaces something that's already corroded up, or in this case here, the 4-pole wire harness is actually from the factory, located behind and underneath and a little bit hard to get to. You can use this to extend it and pull it out and make it a little easier to work with and hook up to your trailer. Our part number includes the wire harness here, of course. It also comes with the quick splice connectors and a circuit tester to help identify the functions of the wires. We'll cover those next in our install. First off, this is our 4-pole flat wire harness right here, entire length of the wire is going to be 72 inches. These are our quick splice connectors. more

This adapter is going to convert the 7-way blazed-out connector on your vehicle, for use with the 5-way flat connector on your towed vehicle or trailer. Now this 5-way will meet with either a 4-way or 5-way flat connector. We're going to have the environmentally sealed 16-gauge coiled that's going to prevent tangling, keeps the wire pretty compact, once you have the connections made. That way, you don't have to worry about securing the wires or about them dragging or anything like that. more
