Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit Installation - 2004 Ford F-250

On this 2004 Ford F-250 super duty, we're going to review and install the bulldog wiring kit, part number BDW20207. First of, all hand cover the parts that come with this part number. This is our main wire harness right here, which is constructive of two gauge material and its overall length, is going to be 24 foot long. We'll take a look at the ends. First of, for your typical assessor, which should be the winch that goes on here. This is going to be ride towards the back of a truck. Comes with a cap, to cover up when it's not being used.

Also there's a little lanyard, so don't lose it, you can attach it to somewhere on the vehicle. On the other end of our wires, these is ground one. It's got all seal that ends on it. Our negative wire, here, it's intended to be installed on the negative side of the battery. Here's our red one that goes to the positive side of the battery and the same style construction. For your accessory or plug into it, comes with it's own plug and some logs to get crypt on to two gauge wire as well. This also comes from some heavy zip ties, to help it secure it to the vehicle.

To start off our install, I'm going to take this end of our wire harness and I'll route down behind battery, down towards the frame. I'm going to go through this opening right through here. We should be close to the inaudible 00:01:20 liner when guided from there, once we get down to that point. Once we have it through our opening, we'll go ahead and pull all the slack through and make one ground connection to our battery. We'll go ahead and make a connection to the negative side of the battery. We'll go ahead and loosen up the nut here, and we'll go right ahead and remove it.

Right, what I'm taking a wire and add it to our negative side of our battery. Now of course this is going to be a bit of sloppy fit, so I'm going to use the number ten washer on my bolt, to help give it some grip on the cable when we reinstall the nut. Now, I like to leave my positives, terminal as one of the last things I connect up. Let's leave this alone for now, we'll go back underneath the truck and route our wire to the back. Now we'll run a wire back, we'll make sure we stay away from anything moving like suspension components or anything hot like the exhaust. We'll go ahead and run ours long the frame as best we can and out towards the bumper. Now we'll go ahead and show you how we routed our wires.

Basically, we tried to follow the top of the frame rail as this is possible. Around this body mount right here, where it will rest on the frame, go along through here. We used some zip ties that came with the kit, to help hold it in place. We've basically used the existing holes in the frame and went along the side of it. We got over by the axle a bit, we had to run over the top of the frame and then start running inside the frame and let the cross numbers hold the wire up for us. Now you know, so we have some extra wire. We place some simple loops in there, zip tie it together and by this time we we're out of large zip ties, so we went back to some small zip ties. Held everything up against the inside edge of the bumper. There we have a wire harness right here. Now our kit does not come with a bracket or anything to hold in place, so, you could leave it like this, where the cover will be fine or, you can advocate your own bracket for it. If you choose to mount up to a bracket, or something from this vehicle, it does have holes built in for that purpose as well. Now we'll install our cap, we're in between the two wires and back over itself this way. That way your cap always stays with it. If we're wiring around, we'll go ahead and move to the front of the truck and hook up a positive cable. We'll use this pre-existing stud right here. We'll go ahead and remove the nut, using a ten millimeter socket. With this time, instead of using the extra washer on here, we just used to use a smaller ring of familiar wires stacked on top and let that do the work for us. Then we'll clump it down when we re-install the nut. This goes to the back of the truck one more time and we'll go ahead and use the tester to verify if we have power going back. We use our tester on it, even labelled negative, so we'll put our ground clamp there and we'll check the other side. Now you have power going back to it and inaudible 00:05:03 ad on our own accessory. Now we've verified power's going through our cable. I think we're good to go. L-Fisher for part number BDW20207. The bulldog wiring kit, on this 2004 Ford F-250 super duty.

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (15 Customer Reviews)

- BDW20207

Just what I needed. Now I can charge the batteries on my trailer as I travel and don't have to rely on solar alone. Good quality product and shipping.

Charles - 08/04/2021

- BDW20207

Only good way to power my trailer winch-far superior to a separate battery

- BDW20207

All products received in good condition and have performed as expected.

- BDW20207

Very well built and works great. I did notice the price dropped $71.00 between the time I ordered it to the time it was received. Hopefully I can get that credited back to me.

- BDW20207

Great product, worked perfectly. I installed a winch on my car hauler trailer with a tip up bed. The 24' wiring kit was the perfect length. I have a 4 door/ long bed truck and with the trailer bed tipped up the extra length was perfect to connect to the winch. The plug for the winch side was easily soldered onto my winch leads. Very happy with the product all around.

- BDW20207

Came in 2 days after I ordered it! Have this to complement my bulldog front connection. Heavy duty 2 gauge wire and connections are made well! Pleased so far.

- BDW20207

Hi quality product, better than I expected. Also reasonably priced. It will be a quality accessory added to the vehicle and be interchangeable to the next vehicle I purchase. Thanks etrailer for making my shopping easier. AND Talk about quick service and delivery all 5 Star for me. I purchased both front and rear hook ups for my winch or other things that will need power and they are both just what the doctor ordered.

- BDW20207

Best service! And prices also. Never going back to amazon if I can buy it from etrailer.

  • Parts Needed to Wire a Winch on the Rear of a 2016 Ford F-350
    The Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20207 is exactly what you are going to need to power even the most heavy duty of winches whether that be on the back of your truck or tongue of your trailer. The set of cables are going to run from either battery to the rear of the truck. The kit then comes with a separate quick connect fitting that you will need to install on the wire leads for your winch. This will the allow you to easily connect and disconnect the winch from the truck and install...

  • Why Does the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit Ground To the Battery and Not the Frame
    In regards to the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20207, the length of ground wire is included to ensure a good ground on every application. The kits are not tailor made to any one particular application and not all customers will have a good spot to ground the winch x amount of feet away from the rear bumper. The connection to the battery takes this out of the equation and ensures you don't have intermittent function issues caused by a poor ground. If you want to ground the wire...

  • Battery Charger Options For Battery On 35 Ft Trailer To Operate 10,000 Lb Winch
    Since a battery cannot be charged with trailer connector wiring because it is too small, there are a couple of ways to go. I recommend a battery charger like the NOCO Genius # 329-GENIUS5. This battery charger plugs into a 110 circuit and will use pulse maintenance to maintain the charge when the battery has reached its full charge. Another method would be to install a battery charger like the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger, part # 331-BCDC1240D. This would require hooking...

  • Recommended Way to Actually Charge Dump Trailers Battery While Towed
    To put a decent amount of a charge on a dump trailer's battery you would need to run a pretty heavy gauge wire from the vehicle alternator back to the battery of the trailer. You could use part # BDW20207 which is typically used to wire electric winches but would also work for this type of set-up. The trailer and vehicle wiring kit includes 24 feet of 2 gauge double wire and the quick connectors. If the wire was any smaller than what comes with this kit you would end up not being...

  • Would the Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit # BDW20207 Work on a Badlands 12000 Winch
    While it most likely would work, the Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit # BDW20207 has never been tested on your Badlands 12,000 winch so I could not say with 100 percent certainty if it would work for you. If your winch can be powered with 2 AWG wire then most likely this kit would be adequate for your winch as this winch is confirmed to work on Superwinch winches up to 16.5k in capacity.

  • What Size Wire Should you Use with a 13K-LB Winch
    For an Anbull 13000-lb winch, I recommend going with a 2 gauge wire like the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit - Quick Connect to Terminal End, part # BDW20207. It can handle any winch up to a 16.5K capacity. It is 24 feet long, which is the longest we have. I've linked to a video review of this kit for you to look at.

  • Quick Connects for Power a Trailer Winch from a Vehicle Battery
    There are some quick connect options for winches. We have # BDW20133 for 2 gauge wire, # BDW20047 for 6 gauge wire. We also have # DL24085 for 6 to 16 gauge wire and # DL24086 that accepts up to 10 gauge wire. I have included a link to our FAQ article on wiring an electric winch that should be helpful.

  • Amperage Rating for the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit BDW20207
    I spoke with my contact at Bulldog Winch and he said that the # BDW20207 is designed for a 12 volt system that sees intermittent 400 amp use. He said that if you are looking for an alternative application for this it would be easier if you gave us that info and we can see if this would work.

  • Recommended Wiring Kit to Power Boat Electric Winch on a 2016 Ram Larado 2500 Diesel w/2 Batteries
    I have a solution for you but it will not be using your 7-way connector. The power draw of your winch will be too high for the small gauge wire that the 7-way provides. I recommend using the Bulldog Trailer and Vehicle Electric Wiring Kit # BDW20207. This will allow you to run a plug from your engine compartment battery to the rear of your vehicle and a wire up your winch with a plug that will mate when needed for use. This heavy gauge wire will provide you with the power you need...

  • Can the 12 Volt Circuit on a 7-Way Connector be Used to Charge a Trailer Mounted Battery
    The 12 volt circuit on a 7-Way trailer connector is only enough to provide a maintenance charge to a trailer battery. It cannot charge it up. But yes, you can attach the 12 volt circuit wire from the trailer connector to the positive battery terminal on the trailer. There should not be any back feeding issue. You will not be able to charge up a trailer mounted battery from the tow vehicle because the distance from the front of the vehicle to the trailer battery is too far and most all...

  • Can a Superwinch Wiring Kit be Used with a Warn Winch
    Yes, you can use the wiring kit # BDW20207 with any winch up to 16,500 pound capacity. If your Warn winch is under 16.5K then you can use this kit. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this kit and a link to our help article on wiring an electric winch.

  • Does Winch Vehicle Wiring Kit # BDW20207 Not Connected to Winch Drain Vehicle Battery
    Having a winch wiring kit like the part # BDW20207 installed on a truck would not drain the battery at all. There would need to be something connected to the wires that draws current for the battery to drain. So if you installed this kit and didn't have a winch wired up this wouldn't cause your battery to drain.

  • Could Winch Wiring Kit be Used to Charge Dump Trailer Battery
    To actually put a decent charge on your battery throughout the day the answer is a heavier gauge charge wire like what the part # BDW20207 has. This will carry enough amperage to put a solid charge on the battery between dumps. Normally this kit is used to power a winch but in your case it would work well. I would run this to the battery and not the pump. If I were you I wouldn't want the alternator of my vehicle powering a dump trailer. So running this to the battery allows the battery...

  • Possible Quick Connect Recommendation for a 12k Badlands Winch
    The Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit # BDW20207 on your Badlands 12,000 winch will work well. The 2 AWG wire will be adequate for your winch as it is confirmed to work on Superwinch winches up to 16.5k in capacity.

  • Can an Electric Trailer Jack be Powered Using a 7-Way Connector on a Truck
    The wiring on a trailer connector and the tow package wiring on a vehicle is not really rated high enough and the wire gauge is not large enough to properly power an electric trailer jack. You would want to mount a battery on the trailer and use it to power the winch. To provide a maintenance charge to the battery what you could do is replace the 4-Way on the trailer with a 7-Way, such as # H20042, and run the black wire from it to the positive battery terminal. This will keep the battery...

  • Correct Way To Wire Warn Trailer Winch Up to Be Powered By Truck Battery
    Yes, I can guide you through the correct way to power your Warn 4000 lb winch by your vehicles battery. You will need to use the item you selected, Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, part # BDW20207, which uses quick disconnects. You can use the Tow Ready Battery Isolation Solenoid, part # TR118665, in-line with the positive battery cable to keep from draining power from the vehicle battery. Hooking up the winch with part # TR118665, would only allow the winch to be used...

  • Ways to Charge a Trailer Battery Used to Power a Tongue Jack
    The CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger # CTEK56353 that you referenced actually will need to plug into a wall outlet to charge your trailer battery. What I would do is run a 10 gauge wire from the 12 volt accessory circuit of your 7-way to the positive post of your trailer battery to provide it with a maintenance charge when it is connected. The only real way to charge the trailer battery with it connected to your tow vehicle would be to run a thick gauge wire from...

  • Wiring Needed to Power Dump Trailer Directly From Truck Battery
    It sounds to me like you are wanting to power the dump trailer directly from your trucks battery. If this is the case you will want to start by making sure that the power draw for the lift would not overload the truck. If all looks good, you could use part # BDW20207 which is typically used to wire electric winches but would also work for this type of set-up. The trailer and vehicle wiring kit includes 24 feet of 2 gauge double wire with quick connections. I've attached a video to...

  • Will I Need a Separate Battery to Power My Winch?
    If you are a frequent user of a medium to heavy duty winch then yes it is a good idea to carry a separate battery with you. Many times we see the auxiliary battery mounted within the engine compartment if there is space available when you have the winch on the front of your vehicle. If you are planning on using your winch when mounted to your trailer then we often see it mounted to the frame of the trailer, but you could also mount a battery box and battery to the bed of your truck. ...

  • Will Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, # BDW20207, fit a 2008 Toyota Tundra
    Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, # BDW20207, is designed to work on a vehicle with a trailer mounted winch. But you could use it if the winch is mounted at the front or rear of the truck, just not both at the same time without an additional kit. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. I have also included a link to our FAQ article that covers different ways to wire an electric winch.

  • Preferred Trailer Winch Wiring Ground Location
    You are correct that grounding the wiring for a trailer winch like the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20207 does not need to be run all the way to the battery in order to ground but it is often the most secure. Running the ground the entire length of the vehicle should provide a more constistent connection. We see often electrical troubleshooting issues are caused by poor ground connections often due to corrosion, stacked rings, etc. and terminating to the frame increases the chance...

  • Availability of a Winch Wiring Kit to Connect a Winch on the Front of a Ford F-150
    The Superwinch Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, for up to 16.5K Winches, # BDW20207, will work well to install a wiring connection at the rear of your Ford F-150. However for a connection at the front of your truck you will need a shorter cable to run to the battery. I recommend the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit, # BDW20205. This kit will give you 7-1/2 feet of cable to wire from the front receiver to the battery. The cable is 2 gauge which will be thick enough to handle the...

  • Is Solenoid Required for Installing Powered Winch Wiring Kit # BDW20207
    Use of a solenoid like # TR118665 provides fail-safe protection from accidental draining of your battery with any 12V accessory. This solenoid is activated by an ignition-controlled circuit that connects to its center terminal to turn the power flow on an off. Unless the ignition is on there is no signal going to that center terminal and without that signal present the solenoid remains open and does not allow 12V power to pass through to the output terminal. You certainly can wire a...

  • How To Maintain Trailer-Mounted Winch Battery Using 12-Volt Accessory Feed
    First, on the towing vehicle, you will need to install a battery isolator, # TR118665. The flow of current will go from the vehicle battery to the isolator. From the isolator it will go along a length of 12 gauge wire, # 12-1-1, to the vehicle side trailer connector via a 30 amp circuit breaker. Next, 12 gauge wire will need to run from the trailer side 7-Way to the positive Trailer battery terminal. If the winch came with a circuit breaker it will need to go between the winch and positive...

  • Is a Circuit Breaker Needed Between the Winch and Vehicle Battery on 2014 Ram 3500
    The winch will have circuit breakers built into it to prevent over draw on the vehicle battery. If using a winch that does not have its own built-in circuit breakers then you could install your own in line between the winch and the battery. The circuit breaker you would use is going to depend on the power draw of the winch being used. I have included a link to all of the circuit breakers we carry.

  • How Many Dust Covers Come with the 24' Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit
    The Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20207 only comes with one plug for the vehicle side. The idea is that if you have your winch installed it will be connected. Otherwise if your winch isn't mounted or in use then you would be using a cover like part # BDW20191 to protect the winch, which would in turn protect the connector. If you were wanting another dust cover for that quick disconnect then we have that available as part # BDW20158 on our site.

    The Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20207 would allow you to power a winch from the back of a truck or on a car trailer no problem using the vehicle's battery. The leads attached to the quick connect would go from the winch to the battery on the vehicle. The other quick connect would then attach to the leads that come from the winch. This would allow you to move the winch from the truck to the trailer without any additional wiring. You could purchase an extra set of quick connects...

    The Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit part # BDW20207 is not specific to any one particular winch. The spades will crimp onto the leads of the winch wires and then insert into the connector. Therefore, yes the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit will work with a Smittybilt Winch.

  • Availability of Wiring Kit for Running to Trailer that Has 2 AWG Wire
    We have winch wiring kits like the part # BDW20207 that have 2 AWG wire run to a quick disconnect type of connector. Using this thicker gauge wire will only be beneficial to run power to your trailer. Another option is the 3 AWG # BDW20043. One end would wire to the battery/alternator of your truck and the other connector to the trailer.
