Video Transcript for Deka Wiring 05731-5 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the five pack of 16 to 14 gauge butt connectors. These vinyl insulated blue butt connectors have a wire range of 16 to 14 gauge. The wire gauge, you can see it fits, is actually stamped on here. They do use chamfered barrel ends in the inside to allow fast and easy wire insertion from both ends. The very middle has a built in wire stop for accurate positioning of the wires and these must be crimped at the ends for a good insulated connection, and this part comes as a quantity of five. But, that should do it for the review on the five pack of the 16 to 14 gauge butt connectors..

I ordered a Ventline Vanair RV vent fan. It arrived on time and in good shape. I believe I paid a fair price for this item. I have not yet installed the fan, but have no reason to suspect it will not be the exact replacement for the defective one in my Airstream. I also purchased the butt connectors to hook up the fan during installation.


Comments
I installed the fan and it works fine.

Wanted to upgrade my trailer to LED tail lights during an overhaul an new flooring. After stopping at 4 auto supply stores that carried the brand I wanted but only stocked the most expensive ones the company offered, I went to etrailer an stopped wasting my time. Exactly what I wanted. Priced honestly, and delivered quickly. Won't waste the time & gas next time. Just come back to etrailer an be completely satisfied.

Not water tight silicone butt connectors wouldn't use these


Comments
While we dont have butt connectors designed to be water tight, we do have heat-shrink butt connectors like part # DW05744-5
Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 16-14 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Blue - Qty 5
$7.47
as well as primary wire heat shrink tubing # DW05451
Primary Wire Heat-Shrinkable Tubing - 18-14 Gauge - Black - 1/8" Shrink Diameter - 6" Long
$7.42
. The heat shrink design is intended to help keep as much water as possible out of the wiring connection.

  • LED Red Marker Lights That are Made in the USA
    We do have some red LED clearance lights that are made in the USA. They are made by Command Electronics, and I was able to confirm with the manufacturer that the following lights are in fact made in the USA: - LED Trailer Clearance or Side Marker Light with Reflex Reflector - 2 Diodes - Red Lens # 328-K-59LB - Hot Dot LED Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light - 2 Diodes - Red Lens # 328-003-17R Both of these lights are surface mounted and have 2-wire leads, with the red wire...

  • Lighting Requirements for 16-Foot Trailer That Needs New Lights and Wiring
    We can help you with new lighting and wiring for your 16-foot trailer. A trailer's type, size and weight determine the type and number of lights it must legally have to be compliant with DOT regulations. We have a helpful article that covers these requirements in detail and it is linked for you. I also linked an article on trailer wiring that shows how each different wiring connector type is set up. Our main pages for trailer lighting and wiring parts are included too. For a whole...

  • Wire Functions of Optronics LED Tail Light STL37RB and STL36RB
    The replacement light I believe you are talking about is the LED Tail Light for Trailers Over 80" Wide - Driver Side # STL37RB. The brown wire for this light is the tail lights, while the yellow wire is for stop and turn lights. It also has a white wire, which is of course for ground. You will need to match those up to the functions of your trailer's red and black wires; the easiest way to do this is plug in the trailer to the vehicle, have someone activate the functions and you can...

  • Brake Lights, Clearance Lights, and Fender Lights for Enclosed Trailer
    We can get you the right lights for your trailer, but just keep in mind that we don't have a way of knowing the exact replacement lights on any trailer, so if you want to utilize the same mounting holes, for example, you will need to measure the center-to-center mounting dimensions, or you can simply make new mounting holes if you like. From what I can see of photos I looked up of your trailer, they all seem to be surface-mounted lights, so here is a list of what you can use. - GloLight...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights Staying on Constantly
    There are a couple of reasons why your trailer lights may be staying on constantly, starting with a corroded connector. What corrosion does is cause a short which can lead to the lights staying on, and when you unplug the connectors they would, of course, turn off. So start by checking there, and if you can't clean the corrosion, you can replace the connectors on either the side of your Transit or trailer. I'm not sure if you have a 4-way or 7-way but if you have the factory tow package...

  • Recommended Wiring Connectors for 14 to 16 Gauge Wires to Protect From Weather
    I have a solution for you, but the # 05731-5 are not heat shrink style butt connectors, so heating them isn't going to provide any protection. Instead I recommend using the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 16-14 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Blue - Qty 5 # DW05744-5, which can be heated up to provide some insulation from the elements. This would be the best solution it sounds like and would be my recommendation.

  • What is Needed to Install Brake Controller in 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
    In order to have a plug and play brake controller, your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk would have to have the factory tow package and factory trailer connector. If you have those things, you would have have a plug-in option, with the connector being up above the emergency brake pedal under the dash. If you do have that you would be able to use: - Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers # 3014-P - Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 The Prodigy P3 is...

  • Recommended 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness For Adding New LED Lights To Vintage Trailer
    To wire the 4 clearance lights # MCL0040ABB, license plate light # M298C, and tail lights # STL190RB to your 12' long 75" wide vintage trailer, I recommend starting the 4-Way Wishbone Trailer Wiring Harness with 42" Ground Wire # A40W42B which is 40' long meaning you will have enough extra wire to connect all of the lights you are planning on adding. The # A40W42B will install as follows: Brown wire to each of the yellow wire on each of the # MCL0040ABB, to the brown wire on the #...

  • Is Wishbone 4-Way Required for Trailer With 4-Way but 5 Wires
    Yes you should! You are on the money with what you need, a wishbone-style 4-way wiring harness for your trailer. With this style, the white is ground, yellow is left turn/brake, green is right turn/brake, and the two brown wires are the running light wires. I'm not sure the length you need though, or if 35 feet might be too long, which is the length of the 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness - Wishbone Style # A35W42B. We do have different lengths available, which I'll list for you just in...

  • Does Miro-Flex LED Combination Trailer Tail Lights Come With Wires
    The Miro-Flex LED Combination Trailer Tail Lights # TLL28RK do not come with additional wire. The wires for these lights are 20 gauge, but you can connect them to your wiring with butt connectors such as the 16-14 Gauge # 05731-5. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Miro-Flex LED Combination Trailer Tail Lights # TLL28RK.

  • Brake Controller for 2012 Chevy Suburban With Factory 7-Way
    I have good news because since your 2012 Chevy Suburban already has the factory 7-way, you won't need anything but the brake controller and wiring harness which you will splice into the wires which are already run under the dash. If you take a look at the accompanying photo, you can see where the wires are on your Suburban. As for the brake controller for your Suburban, I highly recommend the Draw-Tite I-Command # 5535. I love the I-Command because it is a great value due to its...

    Basically, you will have to make an adapter. You will need 3 important parts. First you will need a vehicle to vehicle converter # 118158. Next, a trailer side 4-Way, # 18004. And finally a vehicle side 5-Way, # 20016. It will be assembled like in the picture I have provided using butt connectors like # 05731-5. If the trailer has incandescent bulbs then this harness is limited to 1 brake/running light (dual filament bulb) and 1 turn signal bulb per trailer side. For trailer...

  • Installation of Hopkins Multi-Tow Wiring Harness for 2010 Toyota Tacoma with Factory 7-Way
    Yes, you are correct that you can snip off the connectors of the Hopkins # HM43385 and hardwire them to the wiring on your 2010 Toyota Tacoma with factory 7-way connector. You will want to make sure that you match up the wires by function to prevent any issues. To make these connections, I recommend using heat shrink butt connectors like 12 # DW05745-5 and 16 # 05731-5 and then wrapping them up with electrical tape to prevent any dirt or moisture from being able to get into the connections....

  • Replacement Trailer Wiring Harness For 2013 Toyota Tacoma
    There are a couple options depending on the wiring you have on your Tacoma. If you smashed your 4-way connector on your truck and want to replace the entire wiring harness then I recommend part # 118496. This plugs into the vehicle wiring either behind the tail lights or along the frame rail of your truck. This includes the tail light converter and is a plug and play harness. If you tore up the 4-way connector you can simply just use a 4-way connector like part # HM48030. You can...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for Rewiring a 26 Foot Gooseneck Stock Trailer
    It sounds like you are wanting to rewire your gooseneck trailer with a 7-way connector. To do this I recommend the 7-way connector # H20046, the bonded 16 gauge 4 wire per foot # 16-4B-1 for the trailer and the 10 gauge jacketed wire # 10-2-1 for the brakes and ground. Often times, people will run the wires from a 7-way such as yours to a junction box like part # 38656. From there, they will run the standard wire colors to the trailer lights, brakes and battery.

This 4 way comes with LED test lights already installed to let you know if there are any issues with your connection upon installation and anytime after.

    Yes, you can use the Furrion # DV1230BL stereo receiver to replace your Elite EEDV06 model. They are both double-DIN size, so it should fit right in the opening left by the Elite. The Furrion has many of the same features and some updated features as well. Also, I feel the Furrion brand is superior in quality and customer service. There is not a radio with an exact match for the wiring harness that came on the Elite, however, changing the wiring is a simple process. All the connections...

    Installing a roof vent on a vehicle that has a corrugated roof, especially a smaller vent like the Ventline # VP-543SP which requires a mounting hole only 6-1/2-inches in diameter, will mean that you'll need to fill the gaps between the vent and roof caused by those corrugations. The easiest way to do this is to use a pure silicone sealant/adhesive such as # 0160297 which is white or a similar product from a local hardware store that is often available in a clear colorless form or in...

    If you are unable to find a hole or grommet large enough for the 4-Way flat to fit through, you are left with 3 options. First, you can just leave the harness inside the vehicle and pull it out through the rear hatch as described in the instructions. Or, you could also drill out a hole using a 2 inch hole saw. You will need to provide your own grommet or otherwise seal up the hole after you route the trailer wiring through. The third option is to use an extension like # HM47115. You...
