What Gauge Wire is Used on Tekonsha Brake Controllers?


On the Tekonsha controllers, what gauge wire do they use? Mine is all 10 gauge under the truck but it would be pointless if the controller only uses 14 gauge. Also I have an older brake controller that some one has cut off the flat plastic connector. Do you sell the plastic connector and pins for both sides male and female so I can use my own 10 gauge wiring to make my own harness. The adapter harnesses around here are not even 12 gauge! Thanks 1984 F250 diesel.

Tekonsha uses 10 & 12 gauge wire on their brake controllers. They use 10-gauge for the 12V and output and-12 gauge for the red and white.. We do not have replacement female-end connectors. We do offer the replacement male connectors for Tekonsha controllers, part # 20127,

If you decide to install all new 7-way and brake controller wiring, I recommend our Universal Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC7.

If you decide to go with a new controller, I've provided links to 2 of the most popular brake controllers for your 1984 Ford F250: the Tekonsha Voyager, part # 39510-20127, and the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, part # 90195. Both are proportion controllers, but the Prodigy P3 has all of the bells and whistles. If you tow often, I would definitely recommend spending a little more on to get the additional benefits of the digital display, automatic leveling and 360 degree vertical mounting plane.

I've also provided some links to articles I think may be helpful to you.
