Video Transcript for Tekonsha Wiring - Tools for Wiring - 8010 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 8010. This is the Tekonsha Trailer Wiring Circuit Tester. This unit is going to help to quickly identify problems in your trailer wiring. It's a great system to have in place. It's got the very easy to read LED display and the test buttons down here. There are a couple things you need to do in order to get it ready to test the circuits. You are going to need to charge it.

It's got a battery located in here. You need to remove the back of it and connect the positive and negative battery wires to the battery. Then you need to plug it in to a wall outlet and charge it. Then, it's got the nice little carrying handle so you can take it out to your trailer. You can plug in your seven-way blade style connector and then you can push auto-test, or you can push each individual function manually and it's going to have a read-out. Now, it's going to come with instructions.

These are going to tell you exactly everything you need to do, as well as give you the display reading information that you need in order to accurately tell what the tester is reading out. It's a great system to have. It's going to test the left-turn, right-turn, tail, and marker lights, brake, and reverse light circuits on your trailer. It will work with incandescent and LED lights. It's going to indicate the approximate amount of current in each circuit.

Now in testing the brakes, it's going to indicate the number of axles, and that's going to be easy to read here on the LED display. It's going to determine faults in each circuit, such as no-load, overload, a short, or low battery. It's going to monitor the voltage of the external battery that's connected to the trailer charge circuit, and, again, it does include the charger for the internal battery of the trailer tester, so that's already included. It's installed in the unit. Again, all you have to do is connect the wires and then hook it up to a wall outlet and let it charge. Once again it's going to come with very detailed instructions.

These are going to take you through how to charge and connect the unit. It's also going to go over all the functions and how to read the LED display and the signals that are being indicated. That's all going to be here on the back of that front page. It's designed to work with seven-way trailer connectors. You can use an adapter on this unit so you can use it with a four-pull, five-pull, six-pull connector. If you need an adapter we offer those here on our website. Those are going to be sold separately. It's got a nice durable construction to it. Again, it's got a built-in handle, spring-loaded lid, that way when it's not being used it's always going to remain shut so nothing gets in there and causes any type of damage to your circuit tester. Auto-test. This is going to measure the amount of load on each channel, and then you can also do a manual test. You can de-press each button and that's going to cause the same channel to flash 11 times. That's going to give you time to walk around the trailer and confirm that the lights are functioning properly. The trailer tester will automatically shut down after three minutes, and that's just designed to help conserve the battery. That's going to do it for our review of part number 8010. This is the Tekonsha Trailer Wiring Circuit Tester. .

This is a must have if you own various equipment trailers or any other trailers. This unit allows you to test a trailer quickly in the yard or in the shop and locate any wiring issue you may have. It's small and very portable. An absolute must for any company. 314306

This product works as advertised. I have owned it for a year now with no problems and use it every day. Battery life is longer than I expected. Some great improvements would be to keep the park lights on constantly instead of blinking. Also the brake test should be on constantly instead of pulsing. There should also be another test button for just brake lights. Otherwise this thing works awesome. The US price is good but with the exchange rate in Canada most techs will just build their own. 454724

The tester is a wonderful asset to have, to test and see if your trailer lights are working. Or to help you find a problem in your trailer lights or electric brakes. Especially when you are working on the trailer by yourself. The folks at etrailer were a great help when I was purchasing the tester, they helped me with all the questions I had on the tester before I purchased it. P.S. Thanks Chris 258558

Love this machine. Took the guess work out of trouble shooting wiring issues in our customers vehicles trailer receptacles. Cut down on time therefore saving the customer money which in turn brought in return busines. I recommend this equipment to all shops that need to diag truck/trailer hookup problems. 479497
