Video Transcript for Deka 12-10 Gauge Wire Ring Terminal Review

Today in this old trailer, we're going to review and install the Deka 10 to 12 Gauge, 3/8" ID Ring Terminal, part number DW05705-1. The ring terminal is designed to fit over battery posts or even junction box terminals for securing your wire. Now, our ring terminal is a pretty basic instruction. We've got a metal ring that goes into the plastic sheathing, and then inside the plastic, about halfway, is the metal where we'll crimp down to secure the wire. We'll look at the side profile here of the ring terminal, and you see it's got a little step about halfway on the plastic. We want to crimp the half that's closest to the end of the ring portion of our ring terminal as that's where the metal is on the inside of the plastic to give us a nice secured connection. Our yellow ring terminal, we'll just slide up and over the wire, and you see just a little bit of the copper sticking out there, and then we'll crimp it down.

I like to give it a tug just to make sure we got a good connection. You can see we smashed it out pretty good, so we know we've got a good secured connection. It's not going to come loose on us. That will do it for our review and install of the Deka 10 to 12 Gauge Ring Terminal, part number DW05705-1. .

Ask the Experts about this Deka Accessories and Parts

  • Connecting Electric Trailer Jack Directly to 12V Battery
    To hook up a trailer jack to a 12 volt battery you need to make the connection from the jack's power wire to the positve post on the battery using a ring terminal, like part # DW05705-1. If you don't already have a battery on the trailer you can add one. You'll need to power it by connecting it to the trailer connector's 12 volt power circuit. You can use part # e99011 if you need to add a 7-way on the trailer. You'll also need a 7-way connector on the tow vehicle, which I can help...

  • Wiring a Stand Alone Battery for Portable Power Supply for a Horse Trailer With 6 or 7-Way Connector
    I think I can help you out here, but you would need to build the adapter as you have suggested. I do not know of a power supply connector assembly for a stand-alone battery at this time. I would start with an appropriate length of 10 gauge double bonded wire, # 10-2-1, to go from the 7-way or 6-way trailer connector to the area where the battery will be stored. Do not store the battery inside the horse trailer or directly on the ground. Next, wire a vehicle end connector that is compatible...

  • How to Access +12V Power Circuit in 7-Way Wiring to Power Fuel Pump
    7-way trailer wiring includes a +12V auxiliary power circuit that can be used for a range of purposes from powering an electric jack to topping off a trailer-mounted battery. This circuit is handled by the contact at the 1:00 position as you look at the vehicle's trailer socket. The ground is at the opposite pin, the one at the 7:00 position. Please refer to the linked photo. For an easy way to access this power circuit to operate your fuel pump you could wire in a 7-way plug like #...

  • Adding an Auxiliary Power Circuit to a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500
    First, use a circuit tester like # 40376 if needed, to test the 7-Way trailer connector. The 12 volt circuit will be in the 1 oclock position. If the trailer side connector pin that corresponds with the 12 volt circuit is connected to the battery on the trailer, then you will not have to change or add anything. If it is not, you can either connect the battery to that circuit or use the auxiliary pin in the center. Again, use the circuit tester to test the center pin. It may be connected...

  • Converting 4-Way Trailer Wiring To 7-Way for Tekonsha Prodigy Wireless Brake Controller Use
    Yes, you can utilize her current 4-way adapter and then add the 10 gauge wire and 40 amp circuit breaker to give her a 7-way with the functions she needs. You can get everything you need in the # ETBC7 wiring kit. I've attached an article and a video to assist. If you prefer to piece things together, you can get wire # 10-1-1 sold by the foot, circuit breaker # 9510, ring terminals # DW05705-1, and Hopkins Adapter # 37185. With either option, you do not need to connect the brake...

  • Is it Possible to Hook Seven-Way Directly to a Battery to Power Concession Trailer Lights?
    It is possible to use a 7-way vehicle end connector such as # PK12-707E to hook up to a stand-alone battery for your lights. You would need to connect by using 10 gauge wire, # 10-2-1, and if you use a deep cell battery as you suggested, a pair of ring terminals such as # DW05705-1 would secure your wiring to the battery. For a more permanent setup, you can mount a battery box such as # DW03188 (the exact size would depend on the dimension of the battery) on the trailer so you do not...

  • Parts Needed to Allow Tow Vehicle Battery to Charge Trailer Battery While Driving
    You may be able to use the existing 12V feed at the back of your truck to charge your trailer battery while driving but you will need to install a battery isolation solenoid to disconnect this line when the tow vehicle is off. Otherwise your trailer battery could drain the battery in the tow vehicle. You will also want to ensure that you are using a wire gauge heavy enough to pass the charging current to the trailer battery; 10-gauge would be the minimum. You can use part # TR118665...

  • Recommended Circuit Breaker and Wire Gauge for Wiring 7-way Trailer Connector
    For a circuit breaker, I recommend using a 40 amp circuit breaker, like the Pollak 40amp In-Line Circuit Breaker # 9510. The wire that runs to the battery will connect to the gold post, and the line that connects to the junction box will connect to the silver post. Usually, 10 gauge wire is used for the 12V power. I recommend using # 10-1-1. This 10 gauge wire is sold by the foot. To make connections with this wire, you will want to use 12-10 gauge wire ring terminals # DW05705-1 or...

  • Installing a Brake Controller Onto a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Without Factory Tow Package
    I can help you install a brake controller like the Tekonsha P3 on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee. For Brake Controller recommendations, I really like the # 90195. This brake controller is a proportional controller, which means whatever pressure you press the tow vehicles brakes it will apply the same pressure and intensity to the trailers brakes. It also has a customizable full display screen which provides you with a full error messages instead of codes that need to be deciphered. First...

  • Instructions for Completely Rewiring a 14 Foot Tandem Axle Dump Trailer
    Rewiring your 14 foot dump trailer is pretty straight forward. I would start with a 20 ft. Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness, # A20WB, to provide wiring for the stop turn and tail lights on your trailer. We have a video detailing how to install this type of harness for you to review, see link. Next, I would use the RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK12706, and remove the 4-Way connector from the 4-Way harness and install the wires in the proper locations in the 7-Way connector. Our...

  • How To Ground Trailer Tail Lights Without a Ground Wire To a Wooden Surface
    The Standard Trailer Light Kit with 25' Wire Harness part # TL29BK as I am sure you noticed grounds via the mounting hardware therefore there is not a singular ground wire. In order to attach this light to a wooden surface you will need to run a ground wire yourself up to the trailer tongue using the mounting studs on the back with ring terminals part # DW05705-1 and wire part # 12-1-1. The other option you have is to use the Peterson LED Light Kit for Trailers part # V944 which does...

  • 2-wire to 3-wire Converter for Trailer Lights
    The Tow Ready Converter # 118158 will work well for your application. This converter needs to be installed downstream, so to speak, of your trailer connector. This converter box is not designed to be exposed to the elements, so you will want to mount it somewhere on the trailer where it is protected. You could also use a fuse box, like # PK52248, to protect the converter. If the ground wire from your trailer connector is already grounded to the trailer, the converter's ground wire can...

  • Recommended Junction Box Installation For LED Lighting And Break Away Kit
    I'm happy to help. You can use the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit # e99011 to connect your trailer lighting. You can use the attached diagram to help you with color and function on the trailer side. I recommend using the 12 Gauge Black Primary Wire - per foot # 12-1-1. You can use ring terminals # DW05705-1 and butt connectors like # DW05745-10. You can use 16 gauge wire like # 16-4B-1 along with ring terminals # DW05737-1 and butt connectors # DW05744-5. Your side markers should...

  • How to Extend Short Ground Wire on 4-Pole Wishbone Harness
    Wishbone 4-pole harnesses like # A35W42B, # A20WB, # W002230 and # A10-4225VP usually do have a short ground wire because most trailer frames are steel and they conduct well enough that a ground wire attached near the tongue will provide sufficient ground even for lights mounted all the way at the back of the trailer. On the other hand if you have an aluminum frame trailer that does NOT conduct electricity nearly as well as a steel frame then you might need to extend that 2- or 3-foot...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring on 2015 Honda Pilot
    It sounds like the issue is with a ground connection, a terminal connection, or one of the relays. I recommend starting with the relays and the best way to determine if one is bad is to replace it with one you know works. Once you have determined the relays are good, then I recommend checking the plug connections on your harness. Each connection should be clean of corrosion and debris and have dielectric grease like # 11755 to keep moisture and debris out. Then if you are still lacking...

  • Connecting a Power Lead From an Electric A-Frame Jack to Trailer Accessory Battery
    If you are using an internally grounded electric jack like the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack, part # UF38-944017, you simply run the power lead to the accessory battery on the trailer and connect it to the positive terminal using something like a ring terminal, like part # DW05705-1. You will also want to make sure the negative post of the battery is grounded to the trailer frame so the circuit is complete. This type of jack will only require the power lead wire to be connected as...

  • Troubleshooting a Tekonska Sentinel Controller
    According to my information the Sentinel Brake Controller does have to be connected to a trailer to operate. There will be a green light that comes on when the controller identifies that the trailer is connected to the truck. After you have this then you will be able to set the gain. If you continue to have no power to your controller after you connect the two, then it sounds like you are missing the 12 volt power wire being routed from your brake controller to the battery used in...

  • Grounding Trailer Lights That are Mounted to Wood Rather than Metal
    If the lights you are using have wires coming out of the back like the Optronics Camping Travel Trailer Stop, Turn, Tail and Back-Up Light, part # RVST56, then you can simply connect an extension wire like part # DW02359-1 from the ground wire on the light to the trailer frame and ground the white wire from your trailer connector to the trailer tongue. If the lights you are using ground through the mounting hardware, then you can simply run a jumper wire from the post on the light that...

  • Installing GCH Truck Bed Cargo Camera # 3460010 on 2018 GMC Sierra 3500
    The third cable you mentioned for the Truck Bed Cargo Camera # 3460010 will indeed plug in between the camera and module cables also included with the kit. The red and black leads are for the camera's power and ground. The module also includes extended leads for power and ground. I have labeled the picture you attached accordingly. The ground leads (black) from the module and camera need to be attached to a bare metal surface using ring terminals like # DW05705-1 and a screw. The...

    I can help you finish up the installation of your brake controller on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Limited. I really like the Tekonsha P3 # 90195. This brake controller is a proportional controller, which means whatever pressure you press the tow vehicles brakes it will apply the same pressure and intensity to the trailers brakes. It also has a customizable full display screen which provides you with a full error messages instead of codes that need to be deciphered. If you go with the...

  • How to Hardwire a 12 Volt Accessory Outlet in a Truck Bed
    Only a 7-way trailer connector will have a 12 volt power wire ran to the connector. A 4-way trailer connector will not have a constant 12 volt power wire. As long as the 12 volt power wire running to the 7-way trailer connector is rated for the amperage required for your 12 volt accessory outlet then yes, you can use this wire for powering the circuit. Depending on how the vehicle is set up, your trailer connector may or may not still have power while the vehicle is off. To test this...

  • How to Make a Secure 12 Volt and Ground Connection for Trailer Wiring On a 2007 GMC Sierra
    I agree that it sounds as if you have a ground issue. I would start by pulling apart the connector again and making sure the ground pin is not bent. Sometimes this can cause the problem. The next place to look is under the hood at the power distribution block. The power wire is connected to a ground stud at the front of the power distribution block, see link. Make sure the wire is tight and that the fuse for the stud is properly inserted and good. There are many ground wires and straps...

  • Recommended Power Inverter and LED Trailer Lighting for Enclosed Trailer with Deep Cycle Battery
    One thing to note first is that the vehicle's 7-way +12V power circuit being key-controlled can be changed to provide power at the trailer connector at all times. Some vehicles keep their +12V hot at all times while others are key controlled. You can easily make yours an always-on setup by re-routing the wire for the 12V power circuit directly to the battery, connecting it through a 40-amp breaker like # PK54540. You can also just replace that complete connection using 10-gauge wire # 10-1-1...

  • How to Add Always-On 12V Power Feed to 7-way on 2015 Toyota Tundra
    Since your truck is wired to shut off the 12V trailer power feed when it is not running (to save your truck battery) you will just want to install a separate 10-gauge power wire and 40-amp circuit breaker between your battery and the power wire on the trailer connector. You can use wire # 10-1-1 and breaker # PK54540. You will also need ring terminals # DW05705-1. The linked wiring article will help you confirm which 7-way wire to connect to. Keep in mind that the connected trailer...

  • Both Turn Signals Flash at The Same Time
    The cause of both turn signal lights flashing together would almost certainly be attributed to a poor ground. There are several grounds you will want to check which include one for each light, the trailer side trailer connector and the vehicle side trailer connector. One of these locations will more than likely contain the problem you are experiencing. It is important to make sure each ground is attached to a bare metal surface. It may be necessary to undo the ground wire and then use some...

  • Curt Echo Brake Controller LED Indicator Not Illuminated While Towing Skyline Aljo Camper
    By trying the trailer on different vehicles and having a different result, you have effectively eliminated the Curt # C51180 Echo as being the problem (good job!) The Echo depends on getting 12-volts from the pin in the 1:00 position in the 7-way trailer connector. With the igntion on, you should be getting 12-volts on that pin. If not, there are a few things that could be causing the problem. The 7-way could be internally corroded, preventing the signal from getting through. Find...
