Video Transcript for Deka Wiring 10-2-1 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Decca jacketed 2 wire 10 gauge brake wire and this is sold per foot. I have a sample here, this is just to show you that this combination of the 2 heavy duty 10 gauge wires. They're jacketed individually and then all together. It's perfect for when installing a trailer brake controller on your vehicle. The 10 gauge duplex brake wire made with the 2 plastic insulated primary wires are laid parallel and the wires are covered with this high quality plastic jacket that protects the insulated conductors. The conductors are color coded for easy identification.

You can see a white and a black. This does meet all the SAEJ1128 specifications up to 50 volts and the insulation is rated to 105 degrees Celsius. Basically what this is used for is one wire is connected to your brake controller which carries the power back from the trailer brakes while the other is connected directly to the vehicle battery for an auxiliary power supply pin in the trailer connector. What's nice is having both of these wires in the same jacket. It makes running them from the back to the front of the vehicle very quick and easy.

That should do it for the review of the Decca jacketed 2 wire 10 gauge brake wire and this is sold per foot.

These things are major time-savers! Bolt the whole assembly on, wire it up, and go! Can't beat the price either - would cost quite a bit more buying the parts individually. Made a huge difference in stopping power on my 18' Dively car hauler, 9990 GVWR. The brakes were 6 years old at the time, and had tens of thousands of miles on them - abusive miles too, with shoes seizing and dragging, electrical failures causing some to work 3x as hard as others, stop and go MA traffic, etc. While I was at it, I also grabbed 30' of Deka jacketed 2-wire 10 gauge brake wiring, and redid the whole system from the plug back. I also removed the drums, had them turned at a local garage, and installed brand new bearings, races, & seals. The improvement in stopping power was nothing short of amazing. I went from having my Tekonsha P3 on boost level 3 at 11 volts +, trailer UNLOADED, to running boost level 1 at 6 volts with 4,000 lbs. on the 2k lb. trailer! BIG difference in stopping power! 316956

Seems my brake backing plate installation review got posted under the Deka wire ... but anyway ... the wire is working great a year later. Gone roughly 2k miles with several hundred miles in corrosive road salt. I ran the wire through washers I welded to the inside of the frame. Holding up well with the constant abrasion on our endlessly potholed roads here in Massachusetts. Well worth the price - brakes have been working perfect ever since!

Probably didn't need to buy an extra quantity of this wire but I did since on the first two vehicles I made mistakes and wanted to stay with the appropriate wiring colors. Good quality and reasonably priced relative to the hardware or automotive store. 359996

Hello, this is my second order from the guys at etrailer.com, and let me tell you they ship SUPER FAST, and the constantly keep communicating about your order. These guys don't play around, hats off to y'all. This product worked out great, i did have to cut about 1/3 of the 10ga wire though to get it to fit in my Bargman 7-way. But at least i wont get a current drop though. Very nice insulation jacket too. (Not the hard plastic crap) thanks again guys for great customer service 123291

I ordered this controller and additional parts from Laser. Before committing to buying, I asked him many questions. He answered them all in about a clear and concise way as possible while presenting a picture of how to install the device. It arrived today and I haven't started, but he also emphasized that I could call if I ran into any difficulties. I'll follow up when the job is complete. My experience in this context could not have been better. Michael 694628

Ask the Experts about this Deka Accessories and Parts

  • How Much # 10-2-1 is Needed to Wire up a 7-Way in a 2000 Chevy Silverado
    It's better to order too much than not enough, since there are variances in vehicle lengths I think at least 20 feet would be enough, especially considering turns and bends in the wire will require more length. Or you could measure the entire length of your vehicle and order that as the length of the Jacketed 2 Wire, 10 Gauge, Brake Wire - per Foot # 10-2-1 that you would need.

  • How to Order 12 Feet of Deka Jacketed 2 Wire, 10 Gauge, Brake Wire # 10-2-1
    Yes, if you wanted to order a quantity of 12 feet of the Deka Jacketed 2 Wire, 10 Gauge, Brake Wire # 10-2-1 you'd order a quantity of 12.

  • How to Wire Electric Trailer Brakes on a Boat Trailer
    To run the brake lines on the trailer, you don't need the dual cable. I'd recommend using 10 gauge wire, part # 10-1-1 which is sold by the foot. Run the wire from the trailer connector back to the axle, cut the wire and strip the end. Use a butt connector like part # 05732-2. Run a lead to power each brake assembly out of the other side of the butt connector. Use some liquid electrical tape, part # SWC50122 to seal the connection. At each brake assembly, the brake magnet has two leads....

  • Is the 10-2-1 Jacketed 10 Gauge Wire Stranded or Solid Construction
    The wire in the Jacketed 2 Wire, 10 Gauge, Brake Wire, item # 10-2-1, is stranded, and designed for automotive applications. The temperature rating on the coating is 221 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows for use of the wire for up to 40 amps at up to 25 feet. This is the wire we use to wire the brake output wire and the 12 volt power wire when installing the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, item # ETBC7, and a brake controller on vehicles that do not have an existing 7-way...

  • Is 14 Gauge Wire Too Small for Electric Trailer Brakes
    Yes, 14 gauge wire seems too small. I would go with 10 or 12 gauge. For 10 gauge you can use # 10-1-1 and for 12 gauge use # 12-1-1. These wires are sold in increments of 1 foot. So if you needed 20 feet of wire you would enter 20 in the quantity box. The 12 gauge would be the best option. You mentioned replacing the brakes with the Nev-R-Adjust a year ago. It has probably been long enough, depending on how many miles were put on the trailer, but just to be sure even Nev-R-Adjust brakes...

It will utilize the 4-Way that is already installed and then you will run the included length of 2-Wire up to the front to connect to the brake controller and the the battery for 12V power using the blue and black leads.

  • Gauge Wire Recommendation for Wiring up Trailer Brakes
    I'd recommend using 10 gauge wire like part # 10-2-1 (sold by the foot) for the brake power and ground wires as this will be more than adequate and will ensure you get plenty of amperage to activate the brakes.

  • Parts Needed to Rewire Trailer Brakes to Junction Box
    The only parts you need is the wiring, butt connectors # 05732-2, and ring terminals # DW05705-1. The wires coming from the brakes do not have polarity so either can be used as the ground or power wires. Depending on how you have the brakes grounded you can run individual wires using # 10-1-1. We also have 2 wires jacketed together, part # 10-2-1. This may be an easier solution. Both are sold by the foot.

  • Testing an Electric Trailer Brake Controller
    The ground may be sufficient but it wouldn't hurt to test it using an alternate ground location as well. Perform the test using just the manual override and not the brake pedal. Make sure the controller is set to the maximum output level and that it is mounted within the range specified by the instructions. Also make sure that it is not tilted or turned to the side. If the controller you are using has a leveler knob, you will need to make sure it is properly adjusted according to the...

  • Does the Power Wire for a Brake Controller Need to Be Ran Directly to the Battery
    To answer your first question, it is possible to splice the brake controller's 12 volt power wire into the 12 volt power wire you have attached to the vehicle's battery to charge the trailer's battery but this is certainly not recommend. If I were you, I would just run the 12 volt power wire from the brake controller directly to the battery with the recommended circuit breaker for that particular controller placed 6" for the positive terminal. The problem that you are going to run into...

  • Troubleshooting Prodigy RF Brake Controller Displaying OL Error Code
    The OL or overload error code indicates a short in the brake output circuit. As a first step, check the connector itself. Make sure it is not damaged or corroded. If you can see white or green corrosion on the connector pins, there is a good possibility the corrosion has migrated to the interior of the connector. At the rear of the connector where the wires attach to the terminals, check those for corrosion and repair or replace if necessary. Next, test the brake circuit resistance....

  • Availability of Electric Trailer Winch Wiring Kit with 25 Foot Wiring for an 8000 Pound Winch
    The best option we have would be the Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, # BDW20207. What you can do is get some extra 2 AWG wiring and use Superwinch Quick Connects, 2-4 AWG Wire, # BDW20133, for easy connect/disconnect, to reach the 10 foot distance you need. The wiring in the kit is all 2 AWG. I have also included a link to our FAQ article on wiring an electric winch for reference.

  • Running Wire For A Brake Controller Through The Firewall Of A Vehicle
    To run a wire through the firewall of your Mercedes-Benz GLK350, you will want to first check for wires already run through the firewall. If you can use the same location, that minimizes any issue. If you need to use a different location, check for grommets first. Often there are rubber grommets that cover a hole that is already in your firewall and removing that grommet, cutting or drilling a hole and replacing it around the wire is the next best option. The last option is to drill...

  • Stoplight Switch Wire Color for Installing Brake Controller 1998 GMC Truck
    Typically the wire color you would be looking for on the brake switch of your 1998 GMC truck will be white. But you will need to use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to verify that the wire has 12 volts when the brakes are applied and none when released. I attached an install video that shows a brake controller install in a similar truck as yours.

    It sounds like you had a short on the electric brake controller wiring at some point, since the wires are black. This indicates the wiring was overheated. The first thing I would do is check the 7-Way connector on the trailer and the truck for proper wiring. I attached a link to our wiring page for you.

So a portable radio would work for this. Flashing lights, so like a strobe light or any other type of blinking light. Putting a garden gnome near the trailer. Spraying the wires with capsaicin.

    If all the other functions for the 7-Way on your 2015 Ford F-250 are working correctly, but you aren't receiving any power at the 12V pin, then I recommend checking for any missing or damaged fuses on the truck. I took a look at the online owner's manual for your F-250 and found that there should be a 25 amp cartridge fuse located in the #90 position inside the engine compartment power distribution box. This particular fuse is for trailer battery charge/12V power. Make sure this fuse is...

You'll just need a few supplies in addition to a battery; 10 gauge wire, # 10-2-1 (sold by the foot), 2 ring terminals like # 44-5356A, and a couple quick splice connectors, # 562.
