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. .

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. 440376

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. 474228

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. 440534

  • How To Wire a Trailer Tail Light with Yellow, Black, Red, and White Wires
    The best way to find out what each wire is for on your tail light is to take a 12 volt power supply and apply that to each of the wires to see which bulb it illuminates. I cannot really give you an exact function for each color as it could vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. With that being said, we have the Fusion LED Combination Tail Light Bar part # STL264RB which contains white, black, red, and yellow wires. The functions of these colors on this lights are as follows. This may...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Lighting/Wiring Kit for Snowmobile Trailer
    Standard 4-pole trailer wiring uses flat-style connectors, like part # W787268 which is a trailer-side connector and part # HM48044 which is the mating vehicle side connector. On these items and on the 16-gauge bonded 4-pole wire # 16-4B-1 you referenced in your question the usual pin/function assignments are the same. These are as shown in the linked photo and in the article on trailer wiring that is included for you. The one pin that is not like the others will be the GROUND pin which...

  • 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.

  • Wiring Guide for Installing Lights on Trailer with 5 Wires
    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...

  • Replacement 4-Pole Trailer Connector for Utility Trailer with 5-Wire Wishbone Wiring Setup
    When a 4-pole (4-pin) flat trailer connector actually has 5 wires this simply means it is a 'wishbone' style connector with dual running light wires. 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. If your trailer wiring is still okay and you just need a new 4-pole plug to re-connect the leads from the trailer you can use Hopkins Endurance Quick-Fix Replacement 4-Way Flat...

  • Replacement 4-Way Trailer Wiring Connector for 2004 Ford Ranger
    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.

  • Installing Side Marker Clearance Lights with Two Wires on Trailer
    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...

  • Is There a Way to Make A Quick Disconnect Power Wire for Winch on Boat Trailer
    If you wanted to use a 4-way as a 12 volt jumper wire it would be possible, but you should note that due to the small gauge of the wires used in 4-ways you really won't have much amperage to work with...especially for a winch which will draw a decent amount of current to operate. If you wanted to come up with a winch wiring kit from your vehicle battery you'd need something like the Bulldog part # BDW20026 which gives you a long length of 3 gauge wire you could run from your vehicle...

  • Wiring Instructions for Optronics 4-1/2 Inch Round Trailer Stop Turn and Tail Light # ST40RB
    Thanks again for ordering with etrailer.com, we appreciate your business. As for the ground, you are correct, the light housing on the Optronics 4-1/2 Inch Round Trailer Stop, Turn, and Tail Light, # ST40RB, doubles as the ground. Now for the green and black wire, the green wire is for the running light circuit and the black wire is for the turn signal and brake light circuit. I have attached a short installation video for 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.

  • Installing a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2012 Ford Focus
    It depends on what wiring harness you are using on your 2012 Ford Focus. If you are using a hardwire harness where you have to find and splice in the wires from the harness to the tail light wiring on the vehicle, you will need to use a circuit tester to find the correct wires on the vehicle. If you do not have a circuit tester you can use # 40376. Have someone sit in the vehicle and go through the lighting functions; turn signals, running lights, and brake lights, while you test the...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Equipped with a Factory 4-Way
    I can help you install a brake controller and finish connecting the wiring for your 7-way plug on your Ram 1500 that came with a factory 4-way. Sounds like you already have the 7-way plug with the factory 4-way wires run, similar to the # 37185. So to complete the 7-way and install a brake controller you will want to get the # 5506 wiring kit. This will include the wire, circuit breakers, ring terminals, and butt connectors you will need to finish the 7-way setup. The center pin wire...

  • 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...

  • Wiring a 5-Way Trailer Connector By Color and Function For Lighting and Electric Brakes
    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.

  • 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 an Electric Winch be Plugged into a 7-Way Connector on an RV
    First you have to look at the amperage the winch draws and compare it to what the 12 volt circuit on the 7-Way connector is rated for. Winches can draw a lot of power and could easily over draw the 12 volt circuit on the 7-Way. Most 7-Way connectors are on a 30 to 40 amp circuit breaker or fuse. Even a small 1,500 pound winch can draw 70 amps or more. What I recommend is to use separate wiring and connectors for the winch to avoid over drawing the 7-Way. If the winch wiring is 6 to 10...

  • Options for Installing a Plug-In Style Connector for a 12v Air Compressor for a 2006 Chevy Duramx
    I assume you want to use a 7-way connector, like part # PK12706, on your 12v air compressor to power the compressor using the 7-way trailer connector on your truck. You can use a 7-way trailer connector on your air compressor as long as the wire size for the power wire and ground wire from the compressor are not thicker than the 12 volt power wire and ground wire on your truck. The ground wire and 12 volt power wire on your truck are likely either 10 or 12 gauge wire. If your compressor...

  • 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...

  • How to Install a 7-Way Trailer Connector to Add a 12 Volt Power Lead to a Trailer
    It sounds like you are missing a wire for the running lights on your trailer. Trailers that are wired for lights will have 4 or 5 wires, one for right stop/turn, one for left stop/turn, one for ground and one, possibly two, for running lights. Does your trailer have functioning turn signals, brake lights and running lights? If the two brown wires you mentioned are separate wires from the green and brown and yellow and brown wires, then you have a wishbone harness, which means you have a...

  • Wiring Configuration for Trailer Side Marker Lights
    The usual configuration for 4-pole trailer wiring has the WHITE wire as GROUND, the BROWN wire as RUNNING LIGHTS, the YELLOW wire as LEFT TURN/STOP and the GREEN wire as RIGHT TURN/STOP. If your light has white and brown wires coming out of it then typically the brown wire would connect to the + side of the running light circuit and the white wire would ground to the trailer frame, or could be run up to the trailer plug's ground. One way or the other the light must have a ground and a +...

For a fully functioning 7-Way that has power to the Brake Controller and 12V Power you will simply need some Deka Jacketed 2 Wire # 10-2-1 and Butt Connectors # DW05745-5.

  • 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.

  • Installation of Trailer Lights with Red, Black, and White Wires to Traditional Trailer Wire Colors
    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. If you need additional wire, use...

  • Why are the Running Lights on My Trailer Not Working
    The first thing you will want to do is check all of your ground connections. Make sure that the ground connections on the vehicle and the trailer are connected to a clean, smooth metal surface. The best is to use the frame of the vehicle or trailer. If there aren't any issues with the grounds and you're still having the issue then you will want to test the pins on the trailer connector on your vehicle. For this you'll need a circuit tester like # 40376. This will tell us if the problem...

  • Signal and Brake Lights Work on Trailer but No Taillights
    Since the signal and brake lights are working but the taillights are not, it sounds like you may be experiencing a ground issue. A weak ground can be just strong enough to provide some of the lighting functions but not all of them. If a ground problem exists, it will typically show up when the taillights and brake lights are used at the same time because this creates the maximum amp load. There are several places to look for a poor ground connection. I recommend starting with the trailer...

  • Wiring New 4-Way Connector on Trailer with 5 Wires
