Video Transcript for Tow Ready Wiring - Tools for Wiring - TR20116 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number TR20116. This is the Tow Ready six-way trailer connector vehicle tester. The circuit tester is going to plug into the six-way trailer connector on your vehicle. Then the LED lights are going to let you know what functions are working properly and which ones aren't. The functions that it indicates right here next to the lights are going to be brake, turn, tail, stop, and 12-volt. It's made from a strong, durable plastic construction. It has the really nice large finger tabs.

That way you can easily make the connection. Those are also going to assist in disconnecting the plug as well. Please note that this is designed for use with Tekonsha and Draw-Tite aftermarket brake controllers and Ford OEM brake controllers. This may or may not work with other manufacturers' brake controllers. That's going to do it for our review on part number TR20116.

this may be a duplicate review. Not a tool you use every day, but better than volt ohm meter or kluge of bulb/wire when diagnosing power problems. 345303

A great little toolbox aid. My only complaint is that it is black. I work outside and I dropped it and it was night and I couldn't find it. So I'll be ordering another one. 341717

This saves a LOT of time testing and troubleshooting the Vehicle side of the connection. It can test ALL functions at once, instead of one at a time. I found my problem in a matter of seconds. It was on the TRAILER side NOT the vehicle side. (A broken wire to the tail/running lights.) A FINE product! 227084

+++ I completely rewired our small trailer (new lights and everything) thinking the problem was with the trailer wiring. If I had this in my toolbox, I could have saved that time and money. It would have showed me the problem was in our pickup truck wiring!!! +++ small, easy to use tool I highly recommend! --- The tester showed my right turn signal and right brake lights were working. That was NOT the case. There was enough juice going through the corroded wiring and outlet to light up those led's, but not enouth to blink a real light bulb. JUST BECAUSE THE LIGHT ON THE TESTER LIGHTS UP, IT DOES NOT MEAN THERE IS ENOUGH ELECTRICITY TO LIGHT UP A REAL BULB! This may be more suited for those who have led lights on their trailers. Yes, I would buy this tester, if I had it to do over. I would even give it as a gift. Just remember when using it, take my Grandma's advise and don't believe everything you hear, or see, as in this case. A+++ to etrailer.com for fast, accurate, friendly service! Thank you! 17441

  • How to Supply Power to a Trailer to Test Wiring
    The 6-way trailer connector tester, part # TR20116, plugs into a 6-way on a tow vehicle and tests that vehicle's trailer connector. It doesn't test the trailer at all. In order to test a trailer you need something like the Tekonsha trailer wiring tester, part # 8010. It's designed for trailers with a 7-way connector but you can use your adapter from your 6-way just like you plug it into your truck. Another way to test a trailer's lights is to get a standard vehicle battery. With...

  • Why Does 6-Way Trailer Connector Tester Only Have 5 LED Indicators
    In either case, a 6-Way or 7-Way, there is no light for the ground pin, only the circuits that receive power. The ground completes the circuit so there wouldn't be power on it to light up a light. LED lights use much, much less power than incandescent lights. So little in fact that even a tiny amount of current (amperage) will light an LED light. And the LEDs on testers like # TR20116 are so small they would use even less power compared to an LED trailer light. So it would not take much...

  • Availability of 6-Way Trailer Connector Tester
    For a 6-way trailer connector tester we have the part # TR20116. This will plug into your 6-way and allow you to test the individual circuits by function as you apply them. For jacketed 6-way wiring sold by the foot we offer the part # DW04906-1.

  • Trouble Shooting Inoperable Electric Brakes on a 10K Trailer
    Since you have fresh parts in the hubs and provided they are installed properly, I suspect there is a problem somewhere in the wiring or with the brake controller installation and set up. You will need to check the whole system, step by step, to find out where the problem is. If you have used your truck successfully with other trailer brake equipped trailers, then the brake controller and vehicle wiring should be fine and you can skip the first 2 steps. If you tried it on different vehicles...
