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..

Not water tight silicone butt connectors wouldn't use these 716416

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
as well as primary wire heat shrink tubing # DW05451
Primary Wire Heat-Shrinkable Tubing - 18-14 Gauge - Black - 1/8" Shrink Diameter - 6" Long
. The heat shrink design is intended to help keep as much water as possible out of the wiring connection.

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. 332107

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. 274734

I installed the fan and it works fine.

What can I say? they work and are inexpensive. I had to find something to add to my order to get from 149.90 to go over the 150.00 to get free shipping, and if you own a trailer, it's always a good idea to have these in your toolbox! 51630

  • 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...

  • Wiring Harness for Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller on 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The correct adapter for the Curt Spectrum # C51170 trailer brake controller on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is Wiring Adapter for Curt Trailer Brake Controllers # C51515. One end of this adapter will plug into your Spectrum brake controller and the other end will splice into your Jeep's brake controller wiring; you can use Butt Connectors # 05731-5 to help make this connection. I have added a link to a video review of Adapter # C51515 for you to check out as well.

  • Items Needed to Re-Wire 1970s Vintage Scamp Travel Trailer
    The 1970s Scamps are really cute vintage trailers and we can certainly help you with your re-wiring project. We have all wiring parts you'll ever need plus a wide range of trailer lights if you need light fixtures too. Our main page for trailer wiring items is linked and this includes many product categories you can just click on. New wiring is most easily installed using a junction box like # 38656, or like # 277-000141 which includes a pre-wired 7-way plug. All brake and light wiring...

  • Mounting Options for Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light LPL91CB
    The Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light # LPL91CB does not include a mount but it can be used with either the grommet # A91GB or the Mounting Bracket # LP25SB and grommet together depending on the nature of the trailer. You can use butt connectors # 05731-5 to make the spliced connections.

  • Installing a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2013 Toyota Tundra with OEM Brake Controller Harness
    It sounds like you have the factory brake controller harness so all you will have to do is plug the one end into the truck and attach the wires from the other end to the brake controller using butt connectors like # 05731-5. Your factory harness most likely will plug into the same place as the aftermarket # 3040-P. The plug-in port should be located under the dash, left of the steering column taped to another harness near/above the emergency brake pedal. I have linked the instructions...

  • Recommended Wiring for Clearance Lights on Homemade 16 Foot Car Hauler Trailer
    Depending on the size of your trailer there are some requirements for lighting. I've attached an article to assist. When wiring a trailer, I do like the option of including a junction box. I personally really like the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box - 10' Long # 277-000141. This will allow you to use ring terminals # 44-5310A to make your connections. For clearance lights, you want to splice into the running light circuit (normally the brown wire) on your trailer....

  • Recommended Wire For MaxxTow Off-Road Lights
    We do not have a specific wire harness for the MaxxTow Off-Road Lights, part # MT70882 because it is universal and can be installed on so many different items. It is a 2-wire design so all you need is power for the red wire and the black wire is your ground. You can use part # 16-1-1 and # DW02359-1 that is jacketed Black and White wire. It is sold by the foot so you will need to keep that in mind when ordering. For butt connectors I recommend part # 05731-5. You can also install...

  • Recommendations for Splicing Running Light Wires on a Tear Drop Camping Trailer
    Instead of using a quick splice connector, I recommend splicing into the wiring using a butt connector and then using some shrink tubing or liquid electrical tape, # SWC50122, to seal the connections from the elements. We have different size butt connectors like # 05732-2 for 12 to 10 gauge wires and # 05731-5 for 16 to 14 gauge wires. You will want to be careful when adding lights to a trailer. If you add too many lights, it could be too much power draw on the tow vehicle electrical...

  • Turn Signals Will Not Work When Hooking up a 2016 Nissan Rogue to Trailer With 4-Pole
    You will want to start off by checking all of your grounds and making sure that they are all securely connected to a clean surface; sometimes even some paint can cause problems like yours to occur. The next thing you will want to look at is the connector on both your 2016 Nissan Rogue and your trailer. Make sure that they are clean and free of debris. If this is the case then you can test the functions on the rear of your Rogue using a Circuit Tester # 40376 to make sure all of the functions...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2008 Chevy Silverado with Factory 7-Way
    To install the Tekonsha PowerTrac Electronic Brake Controller - 1 to 2 Axles - Time Delayed # 39523 will use the wiring harness # 20127 to splice into wires under your dash that have already been run. I've attached a simple video to assist with this installation which you will be able to do. I've also attached an article with pictures to help. You will simply use butt connectors # 05731-5.

  • Is Junction Box Recommended When Installing New Trailer Wiring 7-Way
    Using a junction box makes installing new 7-way wiring much easier. 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. I have attached a photo that shows how this setup works in the junction box. Most molded 7-way pigtails will come wired with the RV style color code. If you ever need to replace your 7-way connector in the future, you could...

    The Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit # e99011 is a good place to start. It gives you a new 7-way and wiring to a junction box where you can then wire all of the circuits to. Additional hardware that you may need is 3/16 Inch Ring Terminals, # 44-5310A, 1/4 Inch Ring Terminals, # DW05702-1, 12-10 Gauge Butt Connectors, # 05732-2, 16-14 Gauge Butt Connectors, # 05731-5, and electrical tape. And finally 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 which is sold by the foot and 12 gauge wire # 12-1-1....

  • Fastest and Best Way to Connect Trailer Tail Light Wires
    Using butt connectors such as # 05731-5 is probably the fastest way to connect wires. Using a heat shrink butt connector such as # DW05744-5 would be a better, longer lasting connection. The white ground wire will need to secure to the trailer frame using a self tapping screw like # FA1131822.

  • Wire Recommendation for Rewiring Utility Trailer with Brakes
    For the brake circuit of your trailer you will want to run 10 gauge wire like our part # 10-1-1 which is sold by the foot and is standard copper primary wire. We use it all the time here on trailers and it works great. For bonded 14 gauge wire that has 4 wires bundled you would want the part # DW04923-1 which is also sold by the foot. A lot of times people use junction boxes like the part # 38656 to organize the wires on the trailer. Check out the install video I attached for more...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for Kia Soul and How to Make Adapter to Tow Trailer w Separate Wiring
    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 Optronics Sealed, 6-1/2 Inch Oval LED Trailer Stop, Turn, and Tail Light
    Thank you for your purchase from etrailer.com! The Optronics Sealed, 6-1/2 Inch Oval LED Trailer Stop, Turn, and Tail Light # STL78RB that you purchased will need to be hardwire installed on your trailer. You will want to connect the light to your trailer's wiring by function. You can use a circuit tester, like # 40376, to determine the functions of your trailer wiring. The white wire on the light will need to be grounded. I recommend running the light ground back to the main trailer...

  • 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.

  • Availability of Wiring Adapter to Convert 12-Pin NATO Trailer Connector to 7-Way Blade Style
    We do not offer any adapters to convert a 12-pin military trailer connector to a 7-way RV-style plug like that on part # H20043 but we can help you gather the parts you'll need to wire in a new trailer plug to match that on your pickup. We can also offer you an easier alternative. To re-wire the trailer conector you'll need a wiring junction box # 38656, a trailer-side plug like the 4-foot # H20043 (or longer versions such as 6-foot # H20044 or 8-foot # H20046) and ring terminals like...

  • Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier to Haul a Yamaha WR250 Behind a Four Winds Class C Motor Home
    As long as the trailer hitch on your Four Winds motorhome has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity, you will be able to haul your Yamaha WR250R motorcycle. I recommend looking at the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033. This carrier only weighs approximately 50 lbs, has a weight capacity of 500 lbs, and is approved for use behind motorhomes. The total tongue weight of this carrier plus your bike would be approximately 350 lbs on your trailer hitch. Additional tail lights are...

For grommets to use with the # ST45RB you would want the part # A45GB and then for a pigtail you would want the part # A45PB. 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.

  • Tapping into 7-Way on 2004 F-250 for Stop, Turn, Tail Light Signals for Headache Rack
    Since you need to retain the use of the 7-way at your rear bumper for towing while having the same lighting signals available near the cab for your headache rack, one option to consider is using a 5th wheel harness such as # 41157 from Hopkins. This plug-in harness provides on one end dual round U.S. Car connectors in a Y-arrangement that allow you to tap into your existing 7-Way (while keeping all of its functions active for your tow rig). On the other end of the 8-foot cable is a standard...

  • What Parts Needed to Connect Trailer with Round 5 Pin Male Connector to a Vehicle with a Flat 4 Pole
    If your trailer has stop and turn functions on separate lights (separate amber lights for the turns) you will need a vehicle-to-vehicle taillight converter harness for your Subaru that can separate the stop and turn functions. These functions are combined on a 4-pole flat connector. If this is the case you will need to fabricate your own custom harness from several components we can supply. First you will need a trailer-side 4-pole flat connector to mate with the Subaru 4-pole. You can...

  • How to Rewire an Old Cattle Trailer
    It sounds like you are on the right track to rewire your cattle trailer. You are correct about the wire colors on the 7-way connector that you purchased. The colors that you see on the 7-way connector are typical for RV style trailers rather than utility, cargo, or livestock style trailers. The black wire should be connected to the terminal in the 7-way connector labeled black. This is the terminal in the 11 oclock position when you are looking at the back of the trailer connector (see...

  • Recommendation to Replace Trailer 5-Way That Has 9 Wires
    It sounds like the current 5-Way connector on your trailer has a type of wishbone wiring design, which uses separate wires for the signal lights on both sides of the trailer. Most likely yours has a separate wire going down each side of the trailer for the running lights, brake lights, and reverse light functions. I highly recommend following the wiring from the connector on your trailer and testing them for function to verify this. We do not have any 5-Way connectors available with...
