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. .

Pretty good product. If you can deal with soldering, you are probably better off doing that and shrink wrapping. I thought I'd give these a try and they are okay. At times, it is difficult to get the wire to stay inside while you crimp. The shrink wrap could shrink more. These are okay. Do they save time? Yes. Are they better than a nice solder joint? Probably not. Order more than you think you need. You will probably mess up the first one you use. I did. 561226

I don't usually do product reviews but wanted to post this one. This was my first purchase from etrailer. I purchased all four brake assemblies for our 5th wheel which I felt was the easiest and best way to go and had my drums machined. It was a very easy transaction, the parts came quickly and fit as they should. Very pleased with the product although I have not put the trailer on the road yet. BUT- The packaging was very poor. The assemblies were in a carton twice as big as it needed to be without adequate packing and the items rattled around to the point that two shoes were knocked out of place on the backing plates. I was able to correct it and no damage done, this time. Please improve your packaging. I would definitely buy from etrailer again. 344690

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! 699503

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Best Method to Wire Replacement Tail Light On Trailer
    The best way to wire in a new tail light on your 2020 Winnebago Micro Minnie TT is to cut all the old splices out and connect the new tail light directly to the factory wires. The less connection and junction points you have the better; that way there is less chance for a failure point or corrosion building up. The most full proof way of making any electrical connection is to solder and heat shrink the connection. Performance Tool Soldering Accessory Kit # PTW2080 has everything to solder...

    To complete your wiring with a 7-way cord, taillight converter and 5-pole connector I recommend using a few other similar items to give you a cleaner and potentially more reliable setup. 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.

  • 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.

    Yes you can use the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 5-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # C56513 to use as the basis for your 7 pole connector. Once this is installed I recommend cutting the connector off and using heat shrink butt connectors like part # DW05744-10 to connect to the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller - 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat - 10 Gauge Wires part # ETBC7. This simply eliminates a connection that could eventually fail. At that point just...

If your trailer is over 80 inches wide, then I recommend the Wesbar LED Tail Light for Trailers Over 80" Wide - 7 Function - Submersible - Red Lens - Passenger # 271584-01 and Driver # 271585-01.

In order to figure out which parts you would need to convert the trailer, I would need to know the diameter of the existing brake assemblies.

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