Exactly what I needed to rewire a 20-year-old trailer that was starting to show it's age with inconsistent lighting performance and continuity issues. In addition to purchasing this lighting harness, I upgraded all my incandescent bulb side markers and taillights with LED units and complete rewired the trailer. etrailer had everything I needed in one place with excellent pricing and superb service. Everything is working great and I love the brightness and visibility of the LED lights.

Good product but, too small for brake wiring. You did not have the right size.


Comments
We recommend 10 or 12 gauge wiring for trailer brakes. The Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 12-10 Gauge - Nylon Insulation part DW05745-5 will work well for you.

I had trailer light problems (who hasn't?) and found etrailer on the web. The site was extremely well organized and made it easy to find what I was looking for. I had a question regarding the kind of wire connector needed. It was answered promptly by E-mail. The lights and connectors arrived as promised and the installation was straightforward thanks to the videos on the site.

Just received my order of new backing plate assemblies and some misc small parts. Ordered on line late Sunday night, confirmed I had ordered the right parts Monday morning before shipment went out. Customer service by phone was superb and the gal I talked with was perfect. Shipment was on my porch Friday afternoon. I did open box and inspect shipment that arrived completely intact/good shape and all looked good at this point. Not sure when will get to the brakes on the trailer but will post again when the job is done. So far nothing but good to say about Etrailer.com. Regards, John.

Just upgraded to a 2016 Odyssey and need to tow my camper. Purchased the OEM hitch and OEM custom harness (from car to 4 pin on hitch. OEM Hitch comes with nice beefy flange where the 4 pin connector mounts. But I needed a 7 pin for electric brakes and bought this ETBC7 kit to do the job. I ended up cutting a custom hole in the bumper cover and figuring a way to mount the bracket in this kit directly to the OEM hitch. Wanted to share photos of the install for anyone else in the same boat. Advantage of my install is that the 7 pin is mounted above the bracket, protecting it from injury from low clearance obstacles on the road. One Con, is I had to mount it upside down so it didn't interfere with the metal bumper under the bumper cover. One issue I remember is that the Ground wire on the 7 pin harness didn't come close to reaching an available frame member, at the side of the car. I had to cut off the ring lug and extend it out to the edge of the car to complete the install. But it is done now!

Being a new boat owner I was quickly overwhelmed by what I didn't know. Re-wiring, re-lighting my trailer was my first project. etrailer has a wide range of products, but most important to me, was their added product information and instructional information which helped me make the right selections to get this done. Add to that is their very competitive prices. etrailer will be my go to source for my future trailer needs.

couldn't use the wire connectors, to small for the wires on truck and trailer wiring harness. The trailer hitch fit good and the wiring harness was as advertised. No problem installing either of them

I have to say it's an absolute pleasure dealing with etrailer. Not only did my package arrive on time as promised but the experience of dealing with the people at etrailer such as Tommy and Dani made it that much more of fun experience. There was not a problem with answering my questions if they did not know the answer they found out the answer and got back in touch with me. Their prices are great their products are good quality and there's so many good things to say about the company that I could go on and on. Keep up the good work and I will be doing all my trailer business with etrailer. Just check out their website and see how much more they have to offer.

I really like the idea of any outdoor wiring connector that has self-sealing heat shrink. I don’t agree with the suggestion of using a lighter to activate the heat shrink—use a proper heat gun designed for this.

Order was complete and delivered in a timely manner. Only problem (minor) was the 7way pigtail was not wired to color code. Had to use test light to get 3 of the wires in correct location. Could be a problem if someone wasn't comfortable with ringing out wires.

It takes a hefty pair of pliers to crimp the middle and sometimes when you really bear down you tear the plastic. When it works it works well but always have a few extra on hand.

  • Recommended Wire Connector Used To Attach Lights On Boat Trailer
    In order to join lights together on a boat trailer you'll want to use heat shrink butt connectors like part # DW05743-10, part # DW05744-10, and part # DW05745-10 as they keep out moisture which reduces the chance for corrosion that cause lighting issues. If you need to tie multiple wires together, you can do so using one of the larger butt connectors. In order to seal these connections you also need a heat gun, the Trades Pro Dual Range Heat Gun w/ Nozzles part # ALL836717. I have attached...

  • How to Replace a 4-Way Trailer Connector with 8 Wires
    A 4-way trailer connector will have four functions which means it will also have four wires for the exception of wishbone harnesses. These four functions are ground, tail light, right turn, and left turn. The ground function will usually be represented with a white wire, the tail light function will usually be represented with a brown wire, the right turn signal will usually be represented with a green wire, and the left turn signal will usually be represented with a yellow wire.

  • Is Heat Shrink Tubing Included in Deka Butt Connector DW05743-10
    The Deka 22-18-gauge butt connector 10-pack, part # DW05743-10, already has built-in heat shrink tubing on the connectors so it is not necessary to add it. If you want to add an additional layer of protection from moisture and other contaminants you can apply Deka Self-Fusing Auto Tape # DW04367 around the entire connector after you have applied heat to the heat-shrink tubing.

  • Wire Connector Recommendation for 20 Gauge Wire on Trailer
    For a 20 gauge wire I would not recommend the use of a quick splice connector. The core of the wire would be too thin for it to work well. You would most likely end up cutting the core of the wire when tightening it. I would recommend soldering as the best solution and then beyond that butt connectors like the part # DW05743-10 would be the next best solution.

    The best way to keep Over 80" LED Trailer Light Kit # TLL160RK waterproof is to use heat shrink butt connectors.

  • Recommended Simplest Conversion for Trailer 4-Way Flat to 5-Way for Surge Brake Lockout & Jeep 7-Way
    For your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 7-way trailer connector is already a huge help. I recommend simply using the 7-Way to 5-Way/4-Way Trailer Adapter # 707250 or the # 707250. This will give you the 5-way that includes the reverse function to allow you to add the solenoid lockout to your surge coupler. Using a Reverse Lockout Solenoid for Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuators - Non-Bypass # DM11993 or the Titan # T4748800 will allow you to backup without the braking pressure to your...

  • Wire Gauge and Wire Colors for LED Combination Tail Light Kit TLL56RK
    While I'm not sure which wire you are referring to that you need to tap in to, I can tell you the wire colors for the LED Combination Tail Light Kit # TLL56RK; the yellow is turn signal, brown is tail light signal, and white is ground. The wires are 20 gauge and the splices are compatible despite, though if you want a tighter connection, you can use those or the Butt Connector - 22-18 Gauge # DW05743-10.

  • What Gauge Wire Is Used On the Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Harness?
    The Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Harness - 20' Long # HM48240 uses 18 gauge wire for the 3 lighting functions and 16 gauge for the ground wire. This is standard size wire for a 4-way flat harness, but the ergonomic grip on the connector for the easy pull disconnection is what sets this harness apart from others. I recommend using the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 22-18 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Red - Qty 10 # DW05743-10 for your light connections.

  • Can Euro 7-Pin be Replaced by American 4-Way?
    Sure, you can cut off the Euro 7-pin and add an American-style 4-way. I recommend using the Wishbone Wiring Harness # A20WB, which actually has five wires; it splits the running light wires so you do not have to run a jumper wire from tail light to tail light. You will need to do some splicing and you can use the accompanying diagram of a Euro 7-pin to see how they are typically wired. I recommend using butt connectors # DW05743-10 to connect the 20 gauge wires of the harness.

You will then need to connect those wires to the wires on the trailer light. For example, the Fusion LED Trailer...
