Today we're going to take a look at the Decca jacketed 2 wire 10 gauge brake wire and this is sold per foot. I have a sample here, this is just to show you that this combination of the 2 heavy duty 10 gauge wires. They're jacketed individually and then all together. It's perfect for when installing a trailer brake controller on your vehicle. The 10 gauge duplex brake wire made with the 2 plastic insulated primary wires are laid parallel and the wires are covered with this high quality plastic jacket that protects the insulated conductors. The conductors are color coded for easy identification.

You can see a white and a black. This does meet all the SAEJ1128 specifications up to 50 volts and the insulation is rated to 105 degrees Celsius. Basically what this is used for is one wire is connected to your brake controller which carries the power back from the trailer brakes while the other is connected directly to the vehicle battery for an auxiliary power supply pin in the trailer connector. What's nice is having both of these wires in the same jacket. It makes running them from the back to the front of the vehicle very quick and easy.

That should do it for the review of the Decca jacketed 2 wire 10 gauge brake wire and this is sold per foot.

Exactly what I needed to fix the horse trailer after catching the brake wiring in some brush. Completely rewired the brakes and one year later ... Zero issues!


Seems like a good product, but it's very expensive and it wasn't necessary for my installation. Seems like they don't really know what I need for my mass produced American truck.


I was looking for two 10 gauge jacketed wires that could also be easily separated. Most of what I found were wires molded into the jacket which would make it very hard to strip and separate them where needed. etrailer is one of the very few places able to supply such wire.


It’s just like the wiring in your house. Very thick and abrasion resistant insulation. Ran it from my 7 pole plug through the frame to the front of my truck behind the front drivers side wheel well.


As with past orders on etrailer I received nothing but superb service, advice and recommendations for this project; replacement and upgrade to automatic self adjusting brakes on a two axle travel trailer. Parts were top of the line and installed flawlessly. Highly recommend etrailer once again.


Services fantastic.

In the video it said get the 10' of this wire. My fault, I didn't notice when I bought it that it was by the foot. It shows a roll so I never put two and two together. So I received a 2'section which is completely worthless.


I think E trailer is the only place to get this. Perfect for trailer wiring and brake controller feeds.


Good quality wire, works well and easy to use.



Still working well, no issues, seems to be very high quality.


I purchased this cabling to replace existing trailer brake wiring that had failed due to a short circuit. It is heavy duty by sill easy to work with. I would certainly order it again if I have a need. As always provides excellent products and customer service.


Heavy duty wire that will last the truc k!!!


Great product! I was able to complete my electric brake controller installation with ease!!! Great instructional video.


Great for trickle charging my trailer winch battery


Products I received were fine. The shipping was very quick, and arrived quickly. Where etrailer really shined was in their contact help. My email was answered quickly, with alternate suggestions (which were both a closer match and cheaper alternative to my pick) and clearly explained by my online contact. They were a very big help.

I'm a repeat customer of etrailer, and never had an issue. Good people there, period.


Great place to buy trailer supplies!


These things are major time-savers! Bolt the whole assembly on, wire it up, and go! Can't beat the price either - would cost quite a bit more buying the parts individually. Made a huge difference in stopping power on my 18' Dively car hauler, 9990 GVWR. The brakes were 6 years old at the time, and had tens of thousands of miles on them - abusive miles too, with shoes seizing and dragging, electrical failures causing some to work 3x as hard as others, stop and go MA traffic, etc.

While I was at it, I also grabbed 30' of Deka jacketed 2-wire 10 gauge brake wiring, and redid the whole system from the plug back. I also removed the drums, had them turned at a local garage, and installed brand new bearings, races, & seals. The improvement in stopping power was nothing short of amazing.

I went from having my Tekonsha P3 on boost level 3 at 11 volts +, trailer UNLOADED, to running boost level 1 at 6 volts with 4,000 lbs. on the 2k lb. trailer! BIG difference in stopping power!

Seems my brake backing plate installation review got posted under the Deka wire ... but anyway ... the wire is working great a year later. Gone roughly 2k miles with several hundred miles in corrosive road salt. I ran the wire through washers I welded to the inside of the frame. Holding up well with the constant abrasion on our endlessly potholed roads here in Massachusetts. Well worth the price - brakes have been working perfect ever since!


Good gauge of wire and well insulated would buy again


Wiring has been good I would recommend it. When I order 33ft however, I received 30 foot roll and another 3 foot piece, not a continuous roll of 33ft. Disappointing.


I had a great experience. Got the product with no problems.


My tow vehicle does not have factory connections for trailer wiring. Used this cable for trailer brakes and auxillary power. This cable is just what I needed to run from rear to front of my vehicle on the underside. The sheathing protects the wire from the elements. The shipping was quick.



After one year of use, no problems what so ever.


Hello, this is my second order from the guys at, and let me tell you they ship SUPER FAST, and the constantly keep communicating about your order. These guys don't play around, hats off to y'all. This product worked out great, i did have to cut about 1/3 of the 10ga wire though to get it to fit in my Bargman 7-way. But at least i wont get a current drop though. Very nice insulation jacket too. (Not the hard plastic crap) thanks again guys for great customer service

Great product!


This item was recommended to use with electric brakes. Made sense. When arrived, I found that the wire was to large to fit in the axle tubes and trailer conduit. Recommend that you check to make sure it fits before buying. The product is high quality, and would work great for the application if it fit.

Patrick P.


Everything has worked flawless


Amazing and professional service! I had to keep myself from completing the job too fast and rushing through steps. Attention to details is a must when working with electrical systems and with some patience I was happy to say I completed a successful job. I will be a repeat customer!



As a military member, I am moving again after only a year and I hooked up my trailer to my truck and all of the components worked! I am very pleased with this product.


Haven't installed yet, but I'll assume no breaks in The Wire. The wire is high quality and insulation will resist abrasion. If you're hooking up to battery power, do yourself a favor and don't forget to order the appropriate circuit breaker.

Mike H.


Worked as advertised, and still working


etrailer products and service are excellent! With their helpful videos and staff (plus a little help from Curt Manufacturing and our teardrop trailer manufacturer (CampInn)) I was able to install electric brakes on the trailer, and a controller in my vehicle by myself. I had never installed electric brakes before. Everything works perfectly!

  • Parts Needed For Brake Controller on 1999 E450 Motorhome With 4-Flat
    Since you already have a 4-flat on your 1999 Ford E450, all you need to add is the 7-way, wiring, and brake controller itself. So start with the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller # ETBC7. You'll just plug your 4-way into the 7-way that comes with the # ETBC7, and this kit also gives you the wiring, circuit breakers, and rest of the hardware needed for installation. I do recommend adding 10 or so feet of extra 10 gauge wire since you have a longer motorhome; you can...

    I would be happy to go over how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 you were looking at in your 2001 Winnebago Brave Motorhome built on the Workhorse Chassis, but there is not a plug and play option available for the Workhorse Chassis. Instead you will need to use the Wiring Kit # 5506 and like some extra wire # 10-2-1 due to the length of your RV to get the controller installed. You will need to make the following connections to the controller wiring harness: Red wire to cold...

  • Electric Trailer Brake Controller for 2004 Fleetwood Bounder Motorhome
    The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90885 will work great on a 2004 Fleetwood Bounder Motorhome. That said, there are no trailer brake controller wiring provisions on this RV so you'll need to wire everything from scratch. In order to do this I recommend Brake Controller Installation Kit part # ETBC7 and Duplex Wire part # 10-2-1 (per foot).

    The blue wire labeled CHMSL is not for trailer brakes, this circuit is for if you were to install a camper shell in the bed of your truck and would run to the third brake light of the camper. The first thing you are going to need to do is make a couple connections under the hood of your 2002 Chevy Silverado. Check out the FAQ article I attached that details how to do this.

    First you will need the Roadmaster # RM-521423-5 Direct Connect Base Plate Kit so you can hitch to your Jeep. The hooks and brackets for tow hooks will have to be removed. Add to that a tow bar. I would recommend the Roadmaster # RM-522 All Terrain – Non Binding tow bar.

  • Where Does Brake Output Circuit on Trailer Wiring Run to On Trailer Magnets
    You are super close to having the brakes functional on your trailer. Run the blue wire from the brake output pin to either one of the wires that are coming off of the brake assemblies and then ground the other and you'll be done. Brake magnet wires are not polarity sensitive either so either can be ground or power.

    The best procedure for installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885, on your Fleetwood Motorhome with a Freightliner chassis and air brakes is to follow the Brake Controller manufacturers instructions. I contacted our representative at Freightliner, he informed me that if the motor home is a 2004 or newer there is a 6 pin connector under the dash that will be labeled either "TRBRK" or "TBC."

  • Is a 2008 Fleetwood Bounder on Workhorse W22 Chassis Pre-Wired for a Brake Controller
    I believe that there is wiring located up under the dash and to the left of the steering column on the 2008 Workhorse W22 chassis that is for a brake controller. Look for a bundle of wires held together with a white tag. The tag shows the functions of the wires. If that wire bundle is not present on your Bounder then the brake controller will have to be hardwired in. You would need a 30 amp circuit breaker, # PK54530, wire # 10-2-1 sold by the foot, and some additional # 10-1-1 wire sold...

  • Can One Wire Feed Both Circuit Breakers of ETBC7 Install Kit
    You would not want to run a single wire for both circuit breakers to the positive post of the battery. That would potentially cause both breakers to trip when only one circuit would need to as well as other issues related. Best option is to use part # 10-2-1 if you only wanted to run one "wire" this is a double bonded wire that contains two 10 gauge wires so essentially you would achieve what you wanted without diminishing the effectiveness of the circuit breakers.
