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. .

This review covers an earlier purchase of backing plates and brake assemblies for my double axle 16' trailer as well as new wiring for this trailer after repeatedly repairing the wiring purchased from a local store. The brakes work perfectly and the new wiring is so much better than my previous locally purchased wiring. The only problem I have now is remembering to adjust the brakes between the loaded and unloaded trips. Makes the tires last longer!!

Wires are holding up great!! No more breaks or disconnects. This project completes a refitting of my 16 ft car hauler. Earlier parts included brake shoes and backing plates and a new trailer to truck power cable. Very satisfied with all of the items purchased from e-trailer.



by:

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.

Thick heavy gauge wire, with stout insulation.
Not like the thin stuff in a harbor freight light kit.
This is something you will be proud to put on your trailer.

helpful comparison, thanks!

Quality products that allows us to our trailer to automotive OEM standards vs the bound to fail system of the original trailer manufacturer



by:

Great people fast service and they take care of any problems you might have



by:

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.



by:

Yet another part purchased for my 10K lb trailer build.
I am planning on mounting a waterproof junction box for my wiring, these wires will be used to power all of the lights on the trailer. I will run separate wires for the trailer brakes and battery. The quality of this wire looks to be pretty nice.

This helped make rewiring my trailer very easy .

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.



by:

Excellent product, quality, and exact wire gauge I was looking for. I love that I could buy the exact length I needed without buying an entire spool of wire. I'm using this wire on my utility trailer. I needed to lengthen the trailer wire that connects to the vehicle. I covered the wire with split loom and bought new connectors for both truck and trailer. It looks and functions great! Thanks!



by:

Good product. Recieved order fast.



by:

super fast shipping. exactly what was needed to get my flatbed trailer back on the road. Prices were great and customer support is fantastic. thanks for all the help and great products.



by:

The wire, rollers and the fenders were all received in good condition; and are installed on the trailer.

Your site was easy to order from, the price was good; and thank you for your promptness in delivering the order.



by:

Online ordering was very easy. Customer service emailed updates every step of the delivery process and allowed me to track my order very easily. Everything came in as expected and in great shape. My first experience with Etrailer has been very pleasant! Thank you!



by:

Excellent new wire that I used to completely rewire the trailer. Very good quality, good insulation, nice fresh multi-strand copper wire inside. Superb! Very satisfied!



by:

Everything I ordered from trailer was exactly as advertised.
Great service!



by:

As always my order was received in record time. The products are great quality with some of the best customer service I have ever received. Etrailer goes above and beyond to provide great products as well as very informative technical information.



by:

Great for running to back and front of the flat bed for the two sets of brake lights.



by:

best prices and service, etrailer is a one stop place to get it all.



by:

It is wire. However, the length was the reason for ordering as local retail outlets only had 25 foot lengths available and I didn't want splices in the middle of my "toad" taillight connections.

  • Standard Color Code for Wiring a 4-Flat Connector
    Yes, you would just want to connect color to color when rewiring a replacement 4-way connector like the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Fix Replacement 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector item # HM48190 White-Ground Brown-Tail/Running Lights Green-Right Turn/Brake - Remember green has an R in it Yellow-Left Turn/Brake - Remember yellow has an L in it I have linked a diagram below.

  • How to Get the 4-Way Wiring # 18252 Longer than 6 feet
    What you would need to do is get the # 18252 that you referenced which comes with 6 feet, and then also order the part # 16-4B-1 which is bonded 4-way wiring sold by the foot. Basically you would need to order a quantity of the # 16-4B-1 in the amount of feet of extension you would need so that you would have the proper length of wire to install the 4-way on your trailer.

  • What Lights Are Needed For Trailer That Is 96 Inches Wide And 144 Inches Long
    I have attached a helpful article that explains what lights are needed for trailers. Putting lights on a trailer are based on the width, length, and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). To find the GVWR you can look on the trailer tongue or frame for a sticker or tag that lists the rating. Here is a list of the lights and markers required for your trailer if it has a GVWR less than 10,000 lbs. Each of the items list their features and sizes that you can use to determine what you want to...

  • Testing Utility Trailer With 2 White Wires On 7-Way Connector
    It sounds like your trailer has been wired with 2 of the 7-way connector functions using the same color wire. If this is a new trailer you may want to ask the prior owner or dealer if the wiring has been modified. You can use a 12V power source like a battery and also use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to test the wire functions on the trailer to find out what each of the wires are used for. I have attached a helpful article that shows what the typical wiring and colors are.

  • Left Tail Light Is Brighter Then Right After Installing New Taillights on Triton Trailer
    It sounds like you have a common ground issue because of the sporadic behavior of the LED lights that you have described. It is a good idea to check the grounds on the new tail lights and the trailer's main ground to make sure they are ground to a clean bare metal surface. If the tail lights ground through the mounting hardware make sure they have a good connection to the frame free of debris, rust or paint. If checking the grounds does not fix the issue please let me know and we can...

  • How to Connect Clearance/Marker Lights to 4-Way Wiring
    The marker lights on your trailer will connect to the tail light wire on your 4-way. This is the case for both sides and as many marker lights as you have. In the case of the # 16-4B-1 Deka Bonded 4 Wire, you will be connecting the marker lights to the brown wire for power and the white wire for ground. Typically marker lights use black for power and white for ground. In the case of your red and black wiring, the red is usually for power and the black is the ground wire. If that happened...

  • All Trailer Lights are Working Except for Brake Lights
    On a trailer the turn signals and brake lights are on the same circuit. Since the brake lights are not working I suspect a bad ground connection. Bad grounds can show up when there is more draw on a system. The brake lights light up the brightest and would draw more constant power than the turn signals. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector grounds should be attached to clean and corrosion free bare...

  • Options for 16 Gauge Wire to Power a 12 Volt Spot Sprayer in Bed of 2012 Ford F-150
    We carry different types of 16 gauge wire. We have bonded 4-Wire, # 16-4B-1, jacketed 4 wire, # DW03240-1, bonded 3-Wire, # 16-3B-1, and single wire # 16-1-1. Each of these are available in increments of 1 foot. So if you needed 8 feet you would enter 8 in the quantity box for an 8 foot length of wire. I would over estimate it because it is better to have too much wire than not enough. You also might be interested in some heat shrink tubing # DW05744-10 to keep the splices water tight.

  • Troubleshooting Right Side Trailer Wiring that Stopped Functioning
    Since you lost all of the signals at once on one side of the trailer that makes me think you have a ground problem on that assembly. Most lights ground through the mounting hardware so make sure your light is mounted to a clean metal surface. Or you can run a jumper wire from the mounting hardware (or ground wire if equipped) back to the frame or the main wiring connector of the trailer. I attached a link to a troubleshooting guide for trailer wiring for you to check out as well.

  • Why Would Trailer Wiring on a 2008 Jeep Liberty Prevent Reverse Lights from Functioning
    The problem is most likely in the connectors of the trailer wiring you have installed on your 2008 Jeep Liberty. I would try removing the kit first and seeing if you can find any corrosion in the connectors and clean it out. If not a much easier and less expensive route would be to replace the trailer wiring with the Tow Ready kit part # 118554. This will allow you to get rid of the harness you have that doesn't allow the reverse lights to work with and then replace it with a kit that...

  • How To Add a 7-Way Trailer Connector To a Horse Trailer
    It sounds like you might be looking for a way to add a 7-way trailer connector to your trailer and if that's the case we have just what you're looking for in the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit part # HS381-9000. This kit comes with the connector and junction box. You'll simply need to run wires from the junction box back to the lights using wire like the Bonded 4 Wire part # 16-4B-1. If you have electric brakes then you will also need 10 Gauge Wire part # 10-1-1.

  • Exterior Lights Dont Work On a 2002 Coleman Taos Pop Up Camper After Sitting For Years
    The trailer battery has nothing to do with the exterior trailer lighting circuits. If you have an issue with your trailer lights which was caused from the trailer sitting then I would first start by tracing the wires for each light up to the trailer connector and then rechecking the grounds for each light as well. If they still do not work after then this your best option is to just rewire the trailer as the issue with intermittent function is only going to get worse over time. For this,...

  • Wiring a 4-Way Connector that has 5 Wires Running Into It
    You are correct. A 4-way harness that has 5 wires going into it generally uses two of them for the running lights. This prevents the need for a jumper wire from one taillight to the other. If you're replacing the 4-way you will want to test each wire with a circuit tester, like #PTW2993, to make sure you have the two wires that are both running lights on the same circuit. They're usually ran into the pin closest to the ground, but testing is the only way to be sure.

  • Troubleshooting 4-Pole Trailer Wiring to Correct for Dim Lights on Left Side of Trailer
    In a 4-pole wiring harness the brake and turn signals are combined into one wire, the yellow wire for the left (driver's) side and the green wire for the right (passenger's) side. Running lights, or taillights, are carried on the brown wire for both sides of the vehicle and trailer. Since your lights do all work, just some of them illuminate dimly, chances are that the issue is localized at those specific lights. More often than not, the type of issue you describe is a result of a weak...

  • 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.

    Yes, the running lights on both sides of a trailer need to be connected to the brown running light wire in standard 4-pole trailer wiring. This can be done by adding a jumper wire that runs from one side of the trailer to the other or you can just use a wishbone style 4-pole trailer-side harness like 35-foot # A35W42B or 20-foot # A20WB which have TWO separate running light wires that avoid the need to run the jumper wire from one side of the trailer to the other.

Since one function is not working I recommend checking your ground connection. Make sure it is secure on a clean, bare-metal surface. You can also try unplugging...

  • Recommendations for Converting a Pop Up Trailer 6-Way to a 4-Way
    If your trailer is a Jayco you could pretty easily use a 4-way to 6-way round adapter # A10-6034VP and the 6-way round to 6-way square adapter # HM47415. If the brand of your trailer is different then your best bet would be to cut off the 6-way of the trailer and wire up a 4-way to the circuits. For a 4-way you could use a Wesbar 4-Pole Connector # W787264. You will need to determine what the wiring of your trailer is and then wire those circuits to the 4-way accordingly. You could use...

  • 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...

    In order to rewire your trailer, I strongly recommend you use the Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit part # HS381-9000 with the Bonded 4 Wire part # 16-4B-1. This is going to ensure you have all the correct wire gauge and the junction box makes for a clean install as well as an easy way to troubleshoot if you ever have issues. In regards to the brake output wire part # 10-1-1, this will receive power from the tow vehicle's brake controller via the 7-way, not a battery during normal braking....

  • Can I Get 100 Feet Of Bonded 4 Wire For My Trailer?
    We do have options available for 4 wire for your trailer, but we do only have it as sold by the foot. With that said, for standard 4 wire, you will want the Deka # 16-4B-1. This is the bonded 16 gauge wire used on just about anything and you will just need to order the quantity as 100 to get the needed 100 feet section you require. However, we do also have the Deka Jacketed 4-Wire # DW03240-1. This is also sold by the foot and uses 16 gauge wires, but the jacket also offers more protection....
