Can 5-Way with 6 Wires be Ran to 5-Way with 5 Wires


I am replacing a 5 pin connector on my boat trailer. Currently, the one on the boat has 6 wires coming from it and the new one only has 5. There are 2 brown wires on the old one but only one brown on the the new one. Can these be run off the same wire?


Expert Reply:

Yes, you can run both of your trailer's brown wires to the single brown wire of your new 5-way. Typically this is how most 5-ways are wired. Your old one was a wishbone style connector which means it has the two wires already for that circuit.
