Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Electric Winch BDW20206 Review

Today we're going to review part number BDW20206. This is the Bulldog winch wiring kit for the rear of a standard bed truck. Now this wiring kit will provide a power connection for your Bulldog winch to the rear of your vehicle. It is designed to fit most standard bed trucks. And if you can see, it actually includes 20 feet of both two-gauge power, right over here the red power. And the black ground wires with the looped ends.

It has the crimp connector attached. Now there are two connectors. One's already attached on the two wires, and the other one is here to choose to attache with these connectors to connect to the wire on your winch. Now these are 20 feet long, these are designed to attach these ends to your battery in your vehicle, and this one's to the back of your vehicle. Now it does include this dust cover, as you can see, since it's not connected to any connector, you put a dust cover in there to help protect it from the elements. When you're ready to connect it, you just pull the dust cover out.

Then you have your terminals right there. Now what you end up doing- that also comes with these cable ties that are used to secure these longer wires on your vehicle. Now what you'll do is take your two connector terminals right here and you'll run your wires from your winch into there. So you have your positive and negative wires from your winch. And then to attach these to this, what you'll want to do, is hold this up this way, and they sort of have a hook to them. There's a little hook right there.

With the hook pointing down, what you'll want to do is match up the positive from your winch wire into the positive one, just push it in there. If you push it in far enough, it'll just click into place. Same over here. It says negative. This should be attached to the negative wire.

Make sure the hook's pointing down, push it in, and it locks into place. Pretty simple to do. Then your wires from your winch will be in here and all you have to do is- these will be from your battery in your vehicle. You just push those together, just like that, and it gives you a nice weatherproof seal. Elements can't get to your terminals, and you have a good connection for your winch. When you want to unhook it, just pull them apart, and they pop right apart, and then put your dust cover in just like that to protect your terminals from the elements. That should do it for the review of part number BDW20206, the Bulldog winch wiring kit for the rear of a standard bed truck. .

A bit pricey, but convenient to install quickly. 317145

- BDW20206

Great product, easy to install, jumbo size zip ties, [could use a few more] I like how the dust cap snaps in, not just a piece of rubber that we all know falls out, the wire holding the dust cap could be about an inch longer to make it a little easier to remove and put on [no big deal] 223897


Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Winch Accessories and Parts

  • Recommended Hand Winch for 16 Foot Open Car Hauler Trailer
    For your 16 foot open car hauler, I recommend the Fulton 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Heavy Duty 20' Strap # F142424. This is rated for 3,200 lbs and is zinc plated to resist corrosion. It has 2 speeds for quick pull or increased mechanical advantage. It has a free-wheel position and a shift lock to keep the shaft in gear. For a winch stand, we have # CE31013G and bracket # DL24110. Your other option is to consider using an electric utility winch like # BDW15019 and then use wiring...

  • How To Attach the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger To the Start Battery
    The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger part # 331-BCDC1250D needs to be installed on the trailer, next to the service/auxiliary batteries. That said, this now means you must run a wire from the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger to the start battery in your vehicle. The correct size wire to use will vary based on total length as you mentioned. I recommend you go pretty large so you don't have to worry about issues with length or voltage drop. We actually have a kit that will work...

  • Charging Dump Trailer Battery Recommendations
    The CTEK 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger w/ Pulse Maintenance # CTEK56353 is a charger that you'd use when the trailer is parked. It plugs into a wall outlet and will charge your dump trailer battery all the way up quickly. It would not be a charger that could charge the trailer battery as the truck and trailer are travelling down the road. I attached a review video for the charger for you to check out as well. If you wanted to directly charge the winch off your truck battery then...

  • Wiring for Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit
    On the winch side of the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit Item # BDW20206, the wires are designed to be crimped and soldered onto your wires. If you take a look at the video I've linked, you can see this addressed by our installer starting at about the 5:30 mark. As for the wire gauge on your winch, I recommend taking a look at your owner's manual if you still have it laying around somewhere, but 2 gauge is pretty typical on the 9,500 lb winches we carry such as the ComeUp Gen2 # CU295955...

  • Winch Wiring Harness Kit For Multiple Vehicles
    There are a few things you will need to consider when determining which kit to purchase. The size of the winch and the length of cable you will need are two factors that you will need to now before purchasing. We carry both Bulldog and Superwinch winch cable wiring kits that will work on both of your vehicles, but all the kits are not the same. Both Bulldog and Superwinch use different gauge cables for their kits. The larger your winch's pull capacity that you want to install, the larger...

  • Solution for Connecting Trailer Winch to Tow Vehicle Battery
    I have a solution for you to connect the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW10039 to your vehicle's battery, but it will not work well for you to connect the winch to the vehicle's 7-way connector. The highest gauge wire a 7-Way connector is compatible with is 10 gauge wire. A winch will use either 2 or 3 gauge wire for power. The best way to easily connect the trailer winch # BDW10039 to your vehicle's battery is to use a Winch Wiring Kit. With the winch's 12,000 pound capacity, you...

  • Hitch Mount, Wiring, Wireless Remote, and Winch Cover for Bulldog Winch Alpha Series Winch
    To mount the Bulldog Winch Alpha Series Off-Road Winch # BDW10048 to a 2 inch hitch receiver, you will want the Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate with Handles # BDW20011. This winch mount will make it easy to transfer the winch from the 2 inch front hitch to the 2 inch rear hitch of your Jeep Commander. Keep in mind that when the winch is mounted to the hitch, the capacity of the winch will be limited to the hitch's capacity. I confirmed with my contact at Bulldog Winch that...

  • How to Power an Electric Winch on a Trailer with the Vehicles Battery
    Absolutely, in order to wire an electric winch to the vehicle's battery you will need a wiring kit like the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20206 which includes two 20' long 2 gauge wires that run from the vehicle's battery to the trailer as well as two quick disconnect terminals for each end. The only other thing you will need to use with this wiring kit on your vehicle will be a circuit breaker that is appropriate for your winch which will need to be placed 6" from the vehicle's...

  • Is a Diode Needed to Prevent Backfeeding from Trailer to Tow Vehicle
    There is a possibility of back feeding but this should not really be of a concern as the odds of it happening are slim to none. If you did choose to use a diode then you would need one rated for the components it would be powering. The highest rated diode we carry is the Roadmaster Single Park Light Diode part # RM-690 which is rated at 85 amps. There are a few things you will need to take into consideration for your winch and breakaway system. For starters, it is not advised to run...

  • Is Winch Wiring Kit Long Enough for 2000 Ford Explorer?
    The Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20206 is 20 feet long, or 240 inches. According to my research, your 2000 Ford Explorer has an overall length of 190 inches, so this kit is going to be plenty long enough for you. I've added a link to a video review and install for you to take a look at as well.

  • Winch Quick Disconnect Kit Recommendations For The Front And Back Of 2013 Ford F-350
    I recommend Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit # BDW20206 for the rear and # BDW20205 for the front. The rear kit includes 20 ft of wire and the front kit includes 7-1/2 ft of wire. Both feature thick 2 gauge wire, recommended for higher capacity recovery winches, and include the quick disconnect terminals for each end. If you do not have a winch I recommend the Bulldog Winch Heavy-Duty Series Off-Road Winch, part # BDW10012. This heavy-duty winch has a rated line pull capacity of 15,000 lbs...

  • Can an Electric Trailer Winch be Wired to Run Off of the Towing Vehicle Battery
    Yes, you can wire your winch to run off of the truck battery. I have included a link to a help article that explains the methods you can use to wire the winch. You will want the section titled Wiring a Trailer-Mounted Winch and option 1. I have included the steps for you here as well. Rear of the vehicle 1.

  • How to Wire Winch Battery to Protect Wiring on Charging Truck
    I spoke with my contacts at Superwinch as well as Bulldog and neither have a solution for a way to electronically decouple the trailer winch battery from the charging truck's battery. The best way to protect your vehicle would be to run a heavier gauge wire, like part # BDW20206, directly from your vehicle's battery back to the trailer battery. With a set-up like this your vehicle would be protected should you forget to unplug the trailer connector.

  • Availability of Longer Wiring Harness for Superwinch Winch 2 Go # SW1140232
    Your best bet to install the Superwinch Winch 2 Go in the manner you described would be to use the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit, part # BDW20206 along with part # DL24085. You would then remove the connectors on the # BDW20206 and replace them with those provided by part # DL24085. Once the connectors are replaced, the quick disconnect provided by the wiring kit would plug right into the connector on the winch. According to my Superwinch contact, a longer power cord that has the alligator...

  • How to Power a Winch on the Trailer with the Vehicle's Battery
    In order to power the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch part # BDW15020 from the vehicle's battery I recommend using the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20206 which contains 20' of 2 AWG power and ground wire in addition to quick disconnects for both the trailer and vehicle side. I suppose you could ground the winch to a bare metal portion of the frame but it would be best to ground to the battery to prevent any future issues. This is a very popular kit that works really well. I have...

  • Recommended Power Winch For Raising Enclosed Trailer Door Ramp
    I called my contacts at our winch suppliers to see if there were any winches available that perform as you requested. I was unable to find a winch that had an auto shutoff when the winch senses a trailer door is closed since winches constantly feel resistance. They did agree it was a great idea but it would require a spring loaded trigger button to stop power to the winch which they currently don't make. I'm sure with a little engineering you could make something like # LC379388 work. Otherwise...

  • Recommended Winch Wiring Kit To Connect Winch At Back Of Towed Horse Trailer
    I have just what you need to connect your 2,500 lb winch at the back of your trailer. I recommend 2 of the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kits, part # BDW20206. These come with 20 ft of 2-gauge wire and the quick connects. You would not need all of the end connectors but you would have all of the wiring needed to connect your winch at the rear of your horse trailer. I verified with Bulldog that you should be just fine running that length of wiring for the winch.

  • Recommended Wiring for Superwinch Talon Series Off-Road Winch
    The Superwinch Talon Series Off-Road Winch is a very nice winch that as you stated draws 345 amps at the 14,000 lb line pull. In order to give you the best option we have, I recommend the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit - Quick Connect to Terminal End - 2 Gauge - 20' Long # BDW20206. You will want to use the shortest distance possible for the best line pull strength. To get the full amperage, you would need to have your alternator running and have about a 5 foot length.

  • Is it Necessary To Ground a Trailer Mounted Auxiliary Battery To Trailer Frame
    The way you currently have the system set up will work just fine for you. However, if you want to use the 12-volt accessory feed from your 7-way to maintain (not charge) the trailer mounted winch battery, the battery would indeed need to be grounded to the trailer frame. This is a very commonly found set-up, you would not need to worry about any problems between the vehicle and trailer battery. If the accessory circuit is used to maintain the battery, I would recommend installing...

  • Does the Pollak Single-Pole Trailer Connector Provide a Ground Connection
    The # PK11851 Single Pole Round Pin Trailer Connector is designed to deliver power to a trailer. It is not grounded, as the battery on the tow vehicle is already grounded and trailer mounted equipment is typically grounded as well. The ground connection would typically be carried through an additional connector, depending on the piece of equipment you are supplying power to you might need to increase the ground wire gauge. If you need the connector to power a winch, you would be better...

    We certainly have a large selection of electric trailer winches and everything else you would need to launch and retrieve your boat but I am a bit confused on how you are trying to accomplish this. Would it be possible for you to sketch a quick diagram to further explain how you will be launching/retrieving the boat. I am also confused by how you would use a trailer hitch mounted winch plate while the boat is attached. Can you please clarify this for me so I can provide a solid recommendation....

  • What Size Wire is Needed to Keep Trailer Battery Charged for Winch and Electric Hydraulics
    If you are just looking to give the traditional maintenance charge a battery on your trailer when you will use 12 gauge wire like # 12-1-1 or 10 gauge # 10-1-1. If you don't already have that charge line on your vehicle then you will also add a circuit breaker # 9510. This will not charge a depleted battery but will provide the charge your alternator provides above what is consumed by your vehicle to slowly charge a trailer battery. If you wanted to directly run the winch off your...

  • Does a Trailer Battery Need to Be Grounded If There Is No Charge Wire From the Tow Vehicle
    The trailer battery does not need to be grounded if you are just using it to power a winch. If you were using the battery to power other items that were also ground to the trailer frame then you would need to ground the battery as well. That said, I think you will be surprised at how fast an electric winch can drain a trailer battery if you don't have it hooked up to charger. Therefore, I highly recommend you consider Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger part # 331-BCDC1225D which will...

You can use the filters on the page to find a wiring kit that will work for you. For example if you need a wiring kit 20 feet long you can check out part # BDW20206. If you only need a kit that is 7-1/2 feet long you can use part # BDW20205. Both of these kits use 2 gauge wire and have the male and female connectors. None of the wiring kits are listed...

  • Charging Trailer Breakaway Battery and Winch Battery When Towing
    The 12 volt accessory circuit of a 7-way can really only put a maintenance charge on a trailer battery that's large enough to power a winch and lights. What I would recommend is keep the breakaway battery charge setup through the 7-way since it's small enough to charge better and then for the winch battery use the winch charge kit part # BDW20206 which gives you 20 feet of 2 gauge wire that will run from the vehicle battery to the rear of the vehicle where it stops at a quick disconnect...

  • Recommended Wiring for Warn Belleview 6000 Winch
    The Warn Belleview 6000 winch has a neutral and pull but not a line out gear. The power wire goes to the motor and the ground wire goes to the bolt near the clutch which appears to simply be a ground to the case itself. I recommend using heavy wire like the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit - Quick Connect to Terminal End - 2 Gauge - 20' Long # BDW20206 which will also give you the quick connect option.

  • Using Electric Winch to Load Ice Fishing Shack onto Trailer
    Either the Superwinch Terra # SW1135230 winch with its 3500 lb capacity or the Superwinch # 1120210 LT2000 winch (I am not clear about which one you have) should be able to handle your ice shack with no problem if you use a pulley block like # BDW20004. Using a pulley block can nearly double the winch capacity, which will be necessary because you will be pulling a dead weight up an incline. You would mount the winch offset to one side of the front of the trailer, and secure a heavy duty...
