Video Transcript for Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors Review

Today we'll be taking a look at a Deka line of Heat Treat Butt Connectors, available in five and ten packs, in a variety of colors and gauges here at Etrailer.com. We have one of the butt connectors out of the pack, take a quick look at it. It's labeled twenty-two and eighteen gauge wires, and the center section here, the metal part, is the actual butt connector itself. On the outside you've got the nylon covering, and these two large ends are parts that shrink down after you install your wires. It's a good idea to use a good set of crimpers, and also make sure you have your wires stripped back to about maybe a quarter inch. Then just crimp it down, bring your other wire in and do the same thing.

Then we'll apply heat to the butt connector to shrink up the wires. It'll take up the openings and seal our connection from dirt and water. Ideally you want to use a heat gun. You can direct the heat with it. If you don't have a heat gun available a lighter works as well. Using lighters get it hot after a while so it may be a good idea to use a barbecue lighter instead.

Since you can't direct the heat with this you'll probably have to apply heat a little bit longer than normal for the top side to shrink up as well. We'll go ahead and show our heat shrink butt connectors in typical application. In this case it's going to be behind a trailer light. We'll apply heat to go ahead and shrink the ends down and make a seal around the wire. We'll go ahead and do a test run and verify we have connection through our butt connector.

That'll do it for our review of the Deka line of Heat Shrink Butt Connectors. .

I like the concept of these connectors, but they have a few faults. 1. They don't seem to be a "standard" size. When crimped with my Triplite ratcheting crimp tool, they don't always crimp all the way. I had to move to the next smaller die, and that mashed the tubing a lot. 2. Even when using the correct Die, the tubing seemed to be significantly damaged during crimping. It made me wonder if the moisture proof nature was compromised. I think I'll just go with standard crimps, and put a piece of heat shrink over the connection. I know it is a extra work, but these don't impress me. etrailer is great though. great prices and service. 809677

Ask the Experts about this Deka Accessories and Parts

  • Can I Wire My Backup Camera System into the Vehicle's 7 Way Trailer Plug
    There isn't a specific product for this application but you could splice into your trailer wiring harness to provide power for your backup camera. The best solution for you on this is going to be to splice into the running light circuit on the 7 way connector, so that all you'll have to do is turn the lights on the truck on in order to activate the camera; using the 12v aux circuit would draw power from the battery constantly and likely drain the battery. The running light/tail light...

  • Can Two 14 Gauge Wires Fit i nthe Same End on a Heat Shrink Butt Connector
    You would need a larger size heat shrink butt connector to fit two 14 gauge wires together in one end. The largest we have are for 10 to 12 gauge wire, # DW05745-10, and that size would likely work. There isn't a specific gauge wire used for the color of the insulation around the wire. In some applications where the red wire is for 12 volt power a larger gauge should be used. But in a 4-Wire set up on a trailer where the functions are running lights, turn signals/brake lights, and ground...

  • Wire Functions of Optronics LED Tail Light STL37RB and STL36RB
    The replacement light I believe you are talking about is the LED Tail Light for Trailers Over 80" Wide - Driver Side # STL37RB. The brown wire for this light is the tail lights, while the yellow wire is for stop and turn lights. It also has a white wire, which is of course for ground. You will need to match those up to the functions of your trailer's red and black wires; the easiest way to do this is plug in the trailer to the vehicle, have someone activate the functions and you can...

  • Reasoning To Reinstall T-Connector that Has Sides Reversed
    I was able to pull up your order to see you have the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector C56150 which has since been discontinued. Connecting the green side of this T-connector to the drivers side tail light won't effect the stop light function on your trailer, but will reverse the turn signal functions on your trailer. So, you definitely want to disconnect the harness and reconnect it on the correct side. Until you are able to do this, your vehicle...

  • Replacement Radio for Furrion RV Stereo DV1200
    The Jensen RV Stereo part # JWM60A is actually a replacement for the Jensen RV Stereo AWM965 so this is what I recommend using to replace the Furrion RV Stereo DV1200. They both have DVD/CD/USB/Bluetooth/AM/FM capabilities so you won't be losing any features either. The new stereo however is a bit larger so you may need to open the cutout more but this should not be an issue at all. I have also attached the wiring diagram of each unit so you should be able to swap them out rather easily...

  • Parts Needed to Add Wiring for Trailer Lights and Brakes
    I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit w/ Junction Box and RV Style Connector # e99011 to start off. This gives you a 7-Way connector and a clean and organized way to connect all of your wiring. Then for the wiring for your lights I recommend using the Wishbone Style Wiring Harness # A25W2GWB. This is 25' long which will give you enough for the length of your 16' trailer plus some extra wiring to make sure you have enough to connect all of your lights. You will...

  • Availability of 16 Gauge Wire for Trailer Lights
    The Optronics 4-Way Wishbone Trailer Wiring Harness # A25W2GWB that you referenced has 18 gauge wire for the ground and 20 gauge wire for all of the lighting functions. I check with all of the other wishbone harnesses that we have and they all use similar gauge wiring none of which is 16 gauge. For 16 gauge wiring you can use the Deka Bonded 4 Wire # 16-4B-1 which is sold by the foot. I recommend using heat shrink butt connectors like part # DW05744-10 and the Quick-Fix Replacement 4-Way...

  • Recommendation For LED Boat Trailer Light Kit For Submersible Applications
    Sounds like you need something like the Submersible Over 80" Aero Pro LED Trailer Light Kit w 25' Wiring Harness, Item # TLL36RK. The lights in this kit are sealed and have a waterproof construction. The LEDs are very efficient and last 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs. This kit is for trailers that are over 80 inches so if your trailer is under 80 inches then you can use a similar kit, Item # TLL9RK. Since you want something waterproof that will hold up in salt water, I...

  • Ways to Install New 4-Pole Trailer Connector
    Four flat trailer wiring, also called 4-pole wiring, uses four wires and pins configured as shown in the linked photo of a trailer side 4-pole connector. The one pin that is different from the other three (on both trailer and vehicle side connectors) will be the ground pin and this usually has a WHITE wire that will ground to a clean bare metal spot the trailer frame with a ring terminal. The next pin is for the running light circuit and this typically uses a brown wire to activate...

    In order to upgrade from the Furrion RV Stereo part # DV3100 which is a single din to a double din such as the Furrion RV Stereo part # DV1230BL you will need to remove the plug from the old harness and splice in the one that comes with the new stereo. That said, the wires are all labeled so this will not be nearly as hard as it sounds. The only thing you'll need for this are butt connectors part # DW05744-10 and wire strippers. In order to play media through the trailer's speakers you'll...

  • Converting Hydraulic Drum Brakes to Electric Brakes on Tandem 3,500 Lb Axle Boat Trailer
    Yes, plenty of people choose to use electric brakes on their boat trailer because of the lower maintenance and cost as compared to hydraulic brakes. To replace your current hydraulic brakes I recommend our Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA. This includes both the right hand and left hand brake assemblies, mounting bolts and adjuster plugs. If you are unable to reuse your old nuts and lock washers, those are sold separately as part # BRKH10B. Since you were checking out hub...

  • Submersible/ Boat Trailer Incandescent Light Recommendation
    The Optronics Trailer Tail Light # ST31RB is considered to be a weatherproof light, which means it can withstand the occasional rain shower, and according to my contact at Optronics, it is in fact submersible. That being said, I took a look at the light and wasn't able to really notice any type of seal surrounding the bulb, so I believe we have far better options for you. If your boat trailer is less than 80 inches wide, a similarly priced gasket sealed and waterproof incandescent light...

The ground wire will connect to your trailer frame on a bare metal to metal surface.

  • Parts Needed To Rewire Trailer Using 5-Way for Reverse Circuit
    I have just what you need to rewire a trailer using lights with a built-in reverse function. For this, I recommend a standard 5-way trailer connector which will provide circuits for stop, turn, tail, and reverse. The 5-Way Trailer Wiring Harness part # A40W5B is what I recommend for this as it has enough wire to completely redo the trailer lights with all new wires. I also recommend the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors part # DW05744-10 and CE Smith Trailer Wiring Clips part # CE16867A...

Then in order to make an adapter that attaches the Euro 13-Pin connector on your trailer to the US 5-Way connector on your vehicle you will need the following: Hopkins Wiring Harness with 5-Pole part # HM37918 Curt 2-To-3-Wire Tail Light Converter part # C56196 Vehicle Side Euro 13-Pin Connector...

  • Simple Light Needed for Horse Trailer Tack Room
    The easiest thing to use/install is the NightMinder RV Task Light # NM-Motion-011. This is a battery powered light that uses 3 AAA batteries (not included). All you need to do is get rechargeable batteries to avoid purchasing batteries constantly. It would also be good to get at least 6 batteries so you can have some charging while the others are in use. Obviously if you want to use more than one of this light then you'll want to get the appropriate amount of batteries. If you'd like...

  • 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...

The best way to confirm fit is to check the mounting hole locations. The mounting holes are 7 inches on center and 2-11/16 inches on center. I've attached a photo to assist.

The wires are 20 gauge and the splices are compatible despite the slight difference in size.

To prevent power from backfeeding into the circuits you will also need to use the Tail Light Isolating Diodes part # 48955.

Instead of cutting part # A57CCB you could use coiled 7-way plug/cord # WG54006-043, converter # 118158 and 5-pole vehicle-side connector # HM47900. To make the wire connections you can use butt connectors # DW05744-10.

However, it will be easy to replace this as all you will have to do is splice the new wiring harness onto your trailer in place of the above.
