Video Transcript for Deka Wiring 16-4B-1 Review

Today, we're going to review part number 16-4B-1. This is the Deka bonded four wire per foot. This is a parallel primary wire that has four parallel conductors bonded together by this thermal plastic insulation and each conductor is independently color coded for easy identification. Basically, can see that it has the normal four wire color coding. The green, which is your right turning brake wire. Your yellow which is your left turning brake wire. Your brown, which is your tail lights, and your white, which is your ground. Each wire is a 16 gauge and again, on this part number, the price is per foot.

I have a foot of wire right here so you can order as many feet as you like. This is designed for use with 50 volts or less. That should do it for the review on part number 16-4B-1, the Deka bonded four wire per foot. .

Your description on line was the best of anywhere I found. I'm going to make 2 wiring harnesses for my pickup. I'll be towing it behind my motorhome so 1 harness will be from the front bumper to the rear of the bed for a light bar I'm making. Then the 2nd harness will be from the front bumper of the pickup to the rear of my motorhome. I also ordered 2 12" 4 wire loops for each end of the 2 harnesses I'll be making.

This review covers an earlier purchase of backing plates and brake assemblies for my double axle 16' trailer as well as new wiring for this trailer after repeatedly repairing the wiring purchased from a local store. The brakes work perfectly and the new wiring is so much better than my previous locally purchased wiring. The only problem I have now is remembering to adjust the brakes between the loaded and unloaded trips. Makes the tires last longer!!


Comments
Wires are holding up great!! No more breaks or disconnects. This project completes a refitting of my 16 ft car hauler. Earlier parts included brake shoes and backing plates and a new trailer to truck power cable. Very satisfied with all of the items purchased from e-trailer.

Fast delivery - Ordered on 9/29/17 - Received on 10/4/17 As a benefit, wire is 16G rather then the normal 20G you find in the stores that have ready made harnesses. NOTE for etrailer managers. I am a technical person by nature and speaking only for myself, when I buy and pay for a specific amount of something, I expect to get that amount. I'm not pinching pennies with you here; BUT, I bought 30' of this wire and when I received it, I measured it twice and came up with 29' 10". Most places I've dealt with in the past where I buy wire, angle iron, etc.. would give you a couple of inches or more than you ordered versus a couple of inches shorter than what was ordered. Very stingy in my opinion and not fair to your customers.

Yet another part purchased for my 10K lb trailer build. I am planning on mounting a waterproof junction box for my wiring, these wires will be used to power all of the lights on the trailer. I will run separate wires for the trailer brakes and battery. The quality of this wire looks to be pretty nice.

Having all your wiring color coded and matching for accessories on your camper or trailer is a must as far as im concerned. This roll does just that and makes repairs and connections so much easier. It also prevents shorts and incorrect wiring that alone makes it a must have.

Excellent product, quality, and exact wire gauge I was looking for. I love that I could buy the exact length I needed without buying an entire spool of wire. I'm using this wire on my utility trailer. I needed to lengthen the trailer wire that connects to the vehicle. I covered the wire with split loom and bought new connectors for both truck and trailer. It looks and functions great! Thanks!

I ordered 40' of this for re-wiring my 15' trailer (running it down both sides). This wire is solid yet easy to work with, i.e. separating out an individual wire for splicing, bending, snaking inside trailer framing, etc. This wire is color coded with the 4 standard colors for trailer wiring.

No problems with installation. Everything working perfectly fine. Good purchase.

This wire worked great and is the same gauge on all four wires rather than having a bigger gauge on just the ground like some wire is. I'm glad I ordered the amount I did because I didn't think I would use it but I did.

  • 4-Pole Wishbone Harness for Running Light Connection
    Connecting the brown running light wire in standard 4-pole wiring to both tail lights will require a jumper wire from one side of the trailer to the other, or you can install what's called a wishbone harness that has dual brown running light wires, one for each side of the trailer. We have several of these trailer-side 4-pole wishbones, such as 40-foot # A40W42B, 35-foot # A35W42B, 25-foot # A10-4225VP and 20-foot # A20WB. I do recommend using a wishbone harness instead of a spliced...

  • Wiring LED Tail Lights with Four Wires
    If the wires from your trailer are good and the power is good, then we just need to figure out what each wire on the light itself does. The best way to do that is to take a 12 volt power supply and apply that to each of the wires on your lights to see which bulb it illuminates. For example, when you use the Fusion LED Combination Tail Light Bar part # STL264RB, this has white, black, red, and yellow wires. The functions of these colors on this lights are as follows. Black: Tail White:...

  • Why Does 4-Pin Trailer Wiring Have 5 Wires
    Your 4-pin/5-wire wiring harness is what is called a "wishbone" type which simply means that there are two separate running light wires, one brown and one pink. This allows a separate running light wire for each side of the trailer which saves you having to run a jumper wire from one side of the trailer to the other. We offer lots of wiring items just like this, such as # A35W42B, # A20WB and # A10-4225VP, which happen to use two brown wires instead of one brown and one pink. The functions...

    A trailer can have either 4-pole or 5-pole connectors and the number of actual wires can vary too. For instance, the part you referenced # 16-4B-1, is 4-pole wiring like what is included in a part like # W787274 which is a trailer-side 4-pole setup that carries stop, turn and tail light signals. There are also 5-pole connectors like # HM47910 that add one additional circuit that can be used for trailer brakes or another function. Then there are also wishbone style harnesses that have...

  • Do 4-Way Connectors Have a Power Wire
    Trailer and vehicle 4-way connectors like you'll find with the 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Kit - Vehicle and Trailer Ends # HM48205 do not actually have a hot - or power - wire. As you can see by the cut out I added of the linked help article on trailer wiring (which I highly recommend checking out), a 4-way will activate running lights, brake lights and turn signals. I have added a link to our entire selection of trailer end 4-way connectors for you to take a look at.

    The easiest and best solution we have to give you a 4-way harness on your 2004 Ford Ranger is with the Hopkins kit part # HM40655. This plugs inline with the taillights of the truck and gives you a 4-way that will work great and won't trigger any anti-theft systems like you mentioned.

    The Bonded 4 Wire - per foot # 16-4B-1 you asked from would use the brown running light wire for your clearance/marker lights. The LED light you referenced sound like they have two wires so one will be power and the other ground. You can connect them to a battery to test which wire is power as LED lights are polarity sensitive. It is likely the yellow is power and the grey is ground which will be attached to the base frame or metal frame structure on your trailer. Often the clearance/side...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy Colorado
    Actually to install a 4-way in your 2007 Chevy Colorado all you would need is the part # 118301 that plugs right in to factory wiring on your truck. There would be no need to hardwire anything at all. Also, since your truck has separate turn signals from brake lights you couldn't just hardwire a 4-way to the wiring anyway so the # 118301 would be your best option. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Testing Utility Trailer With 2 White Wires On 7-Way Connector
    It sounds like your trailer has been wired with 2 of the 7-way connector functions using the same color wire. If this is a new trailer you may want to ask the prior owner or dealer if the wiring has been modified. You can use a 12V power source like a battery and also use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to test the wire functions on the trailer to find out what each of the wires are used for. I have attached a helpful article that shows what the typical wiring and colors are.

  • Testing Trailer Wiring to Determine Function before Installing New Lighting
    Since your trailer uses non-standard wire colors you are going to have to use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to wires to verify what they are first. Turn on the running lights first and then test the wires. Which ever has voltage is the running light circuit and would run to the brown wire of your lights. Next turn on the blinkers and test. The one that flashes is the stop/turn circuit and should run to the yellow. The remaining wire which will most likely be the white one is going...

    Traditionally you will find the running lights are brown, the left turn and stop is yellow, the right turn and stop is green, the white is ground, and the brake wire is blue. In your case it sounds since everything else is consistent that your electric brake wire is black. You can test these functions to confirm using a circuit tester like # PTW2993. Then you can use the Draw-Tite # 20017 your connection.

    Red, black, and white wires are common on many tail light assemblies. When this is the case, you will have red as stop and turn, black as running light, and white as ground. So you will connect yellow to red on one side of the trailer and green to red on the other side. Then on each side you will connect white to your frame or mounting hardware, and brown to black for your running lights. I've attached a video of similar lights # STL69RB to assist.

These dual wires just make it easier to connect to the running lights on both sides of the trailer. Examples of such items are # A35W42B, # A20WB and # A10-4225VP.

  • How to Establish Ground Connection When Re-Wiring Aluminum Trailer
    Aluminum trailer frames or bodies can cause grounding issues so I suggest using a separate ground wire that runs from the rear of the trailer up to the main ground post in the junction box like # 38656. You can join the ground wires for the individual lights at the rear of the trailer to one length of 10-gauge wire # 10-1-1 that can connect at the junction box. This way all trailer light grounds will be referenced to the main vehicle ground, which also connects to the junction box. You...

  • Can Trailer 4-Way be Ran to Trailer with 8 Wires for Trailer Wiring
    It really just depends on what the wires are for. Most likely you have several ground wires among the 8 as well as a couple running light circuits in there as well. You just have to run all of the wires to the correct circuits. The 4-way wiring of the part # 16-4B-1 has a white wire for ground, a brown for running lights, yellow for left turn/stop, and green for right turn stop. You would just need to identify all of the wires on your trailer and run them accordingly.

  • Trailer Light Kit for a 10 Foot Trailer
    Legally a trailer only needs right and left turn signals, brake lights, and running lights. The license plate light will be tied into the running light circuit. On a trailer, the turn signals and brake lights are on the same circuit on each side. So the minimum you will need is 4-wire bonded wire such as # 16-4B-1 that you have referenced. For a trailer side 4-Way you can use # A20WB and you would not need the wire by itself. This is a 20 foot length and the running light circuit is...

    I can't be certain what the function for each of the wires are on your new trailer lights, but one of the three wires is likely for ground. Your old/existing trailer lights grounded through their mounting hardware, which is why they only had two wires and didn't need a third for a ground connection. If you turn the light assembly over, the functions for each wire should hopefully labeled somewhere. The most likely scenario is that the black wire is for ground, the green wire is for...
