Video Transcript for Bulldog Rear Wiring Kit Installation - 2007 Ford F-250

All right today, on this 2007 Ford F-250 Super Duty, we're going to show you the Bulldog Wiring Kit. Part number BDW20206. Now this kit is designed to provide for a winch at the back of your truck. We got a 20 foot long cable here, our end for our winch already connected on. We also have a cap on the end to protect it when it's not being used. It also comes with the opposite end for your winch to match up to and the lugs as well. Okay. At the end of our cables, both ends have our ring terminals already installed on them to go directly to your battery and also some very stout zip ties as well. This is constructed from a 2 gauge wire.

Basically, you can think of this as a nice extension of your battery from the front of your truck. All right. Let's go ahead and install it. First up is go ahead and find a location that you want for your plug right here for your winch. I'm going to keep this one pretty close to center of the hitch, just in case if the winch doesn't have a long enough lead it doesn't have to go very far. We'll probably just use one of the long zip ties that comes with the kit and hold this in place. Basically we're going to continue on at this point, running our cable up towards the front of the vehicle. In our case here, we're going to stay on the passenger side of the vehicle and work our way up since our vehicle is a diesel it has less accessories on the batteries on this side.

Of course if you had a gas burner, you'd probably want to run it on the other side of the truck up towards the battery where it's usually at. Our truck is also a crew cab with a inaudible 00:01:48 and it's going to max out our length of our wire so we're going to need ever little bit of help to get up there. Now, when we're running wire up to the front of the vehicle, up to the battery, we'll make sure we stay away from anything moving, like suspension components, or anything hot like the exhaust. Once we get up to the front we want to make sure we stay away from the steering components as well. We zip tie it to our hitch here, went up, made a general curve around our spare tire, and basically went through the short frame supports as far as we could up toward the front. We still need to zip tie some of the wires here but so you can see it right here, we just laid it right in the frame. We use our zip ties as best we can, in any place we can, to help hold our wire up in place, make sure it's safe and secure and out of the way. Then when we get up to the transmission up here, we basically went over the frame and went to the outside. All right, so now we're on the outside of the frame here, in the fender well, and basically we just stayed behind the fender well liner and used the available holes to zip tie and just pushed it on top of the suspension, went up right next to the battery. All right, now we're at our battery. We'll go ahead and connect up.

First off we'll do our ground here, black to black. We'll loosen up the clamp here to make our connection. Okay. All right, then we'll go ahead and take our wire and we'll go ahead and bolt it right back into place. Now, our loop is going to be way too big for this bolt so we're going to have to use a washer to help take up some of the slack. Now, the flat washers we're using are size number 10.

Okay, and we just got some small washers that happen to match the bolt, conducting the most contact on the ring terminal for our wire. when we go over to our positive side of the battery, we have a little bit easier go with it. We have a nice stud we can use here and we're going to need a 10 millimeter socket for that. Then the factory hardware will work fine to hold it in place. That's all it really takes to electrically hook up our wires. Let's go ahead and check out our work. We want to use a regular, old light tester. Ground our clamp to the negative side and we'll check the positive side. Okay, looks like it works just fine. Now we'll go ahead and put our cap into place. Well actually run this through the little loop right here underneath the bumper. Then we'll run it back over itself. Kind of a tight fit. That'll hold our cap for us when the cable's being used. Then we're good to go. Now, our last part is, is the other half of our connector right here. Okay, now, this was designed to go onto your winch or whatever accessory you have on your trailer. Now, it does come with the ends to convert. This end here is designed to be crimped and soldered onto your wires. Again, this is designed for 2 gauge wire. Look at this round surface of the connector right here, and we got this round surface on our tab. We'll go ahead and push those two in. Of course this will be on your wire, already installed, and we push into place. All right, and with that, that'll finish it for the Bulldog Wiring Kit. Part number BDW20206. From Bulldog on this 2007 Ford F-250 Super Duty. .

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (5 Customer Reviews)


- BDW20206
by:

Another quality Bulldog product. Came with everything needed for a clean, straightforward installation and I like that it included an extra plug and necessary components which will enable me to easily fabricate a custom connection to my trailer winch. No janky, homemade wiring for my rig.



- BDW20206
by:

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]

Solid kit. Heavy duty wires that ran nicely along the frame. I recommend this product.

  • 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...

  • Can Spare 7-Way Trailer Connector Be Used To Attach Winch From Trailer to Vehicle
    In order to bridge the connection for a winch between vehicle and trailer you'll need to use heavy duty connection points like those on the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20206. In regards to using a 7-way trailer connector, this will not work as they won't accept a wire large enough to be used with a winch.

  • 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.

  • How To Power Fuel Pump On Trailer With Vehicle 7-Way
    To power the 20 GPM 12V fuel pump from the 7-way you would need to power it from the vehicle's battery. To do that you would use Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit - Quick Connect to Terminal End part # BDW20206 and connect the winch wiring to the positive and negative side of the vehicle's battery via a circuit breaker that is appropriate for the amperage of your fuel pump. If your fuel pump doesn't draw more than 40 amps you can use 40 Amp In-Line Circuit Breaker part # 9510 6" away from...

  • 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...

  • 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. One way to assist...

    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.

  • 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...

  • Superwinch Quick-Disconnect Winch Wiring Kits for Front and Rear Hitch Use on 2016 Wrangler
    It sounds like you need a quick-disconnect winch wiring kit that includes the parts to allow use on both the front and rear hitches installed on your 2017 Wrangler Unlimited. You can use kits # BDW20206 and # BDW20205. Both have quick-disconnect fittings and the heavy-duty 2 AWG wire to support the winch power requirements.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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.

  • 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...

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.

  • 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.

    The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 40 Amp # 331-BCDC1240D will work well on a Class C vehicle. The unit will charge your secondary battery and allow you to use solar panels for charging as well. It works on a wide variety of battery styles and the installation instructions will help you with installation.

    The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger part # 331-BCDC1240D is a great option for charging a trailer battery. It sounds like you are concerned with the status of the starter battery and if that is case there is no need to worry as there are built-in safeguards to prevent puling power from the start battery when it gets below a certain voltage. If for some reason the start battery does die, you can use the auxiliary battery to jump start this with the Redarc Smart Start Battery Isolator...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Wiring Kit Recommendation for Dump Trailer for Charging Battery
    Dump trailer batteries are often very large deep cell batteries that take a pretty decent amount of amperage to charge. The 12 volt accessory circuit of your 7-way really isn't going to be able to put a solid charge on the battery. It will help maintain it but if you are looking for something to bring back the battery after operating the dump enough times that it starts moving slow there isn't a way to do that through the 7-way. You could use a winch wiring kit like part # BDW20307 or...

  • 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...

  • Winch Wiring Harness Kit For Multiple Vehicles

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...

  • 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...

  • Will the Superwinch S9000 Work on a Mounting Plate at the Rear Hitch Receiver of a 2012 Dodge Ram
    The Superwinch S9000 Heavy Duty Recovery Winch is confirmed to work with the Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate # BDW20155. In order to install the winch at the rear of your vehicle you will also need to install a wiring kit like # BDW20206 because the wiring located at your bumper is not nearly adequate for the amperage draw of a winch. This will also give you quick connect terminals to make installing and removing the winch easy.

  • 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...
