Review of Performance Tool Wiring - 3-in-1 Cutting Tool - PT92VR

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at this three in one cutting tool. This can serve as three different tools, including an anvil cutter, a wire cutter and a box cutter. It does have heat treated carbon steel blades here that are going to be very strong and durable, very sharp, so they'll be able to cut through plastic, linoleum, shrubs, thick leather, all types of hoses, so a great option whether you're gardening or working around a shop and that anvil cutter is going to do a good job for you.It also has this titanium coated wire cutter that's going to allow you to trim a seven millimeter diameter copper, aluminum or soft steel wire, and will cut up to a four millimeter diameter nail.Personally, I don't think that's necessarily a high quality feature of this cutting tool. When I try and cut this wire here you can see it does cut partway through it, but it doesn't give a clean finish. more

Review of Performance Tool Tools for Wiring - Digital Multimeter - PT89ZR

Ellen: Hey, everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and we're going to take a quick look at the Performance Tools digital multimeter. This is something that's really handy to have any time you're doing any kind of electrical job, or you're trying to test out any wiring, maybe do some troubleshooting with some wiring that's gone bad, you want to test out your battery, really anything along those lines. So a lot of times these are just something that's handy to have in your toolbox for any of those sort of instances.inaudible 00:00:25 about this is that it does give you a pretty big digital display that makes it easy to see what's going on. You get the leads that are about 42 inches long, so should be plenty of space, or plenty of length to get connected to whatever you want. And then there's also the included attachments that have a little alligator clamp, so that makes it easy, especially for testing out a battery without having to hold the little prongs over it the whole time. more

Review of Project Pro Tools for Wiring - Electrical Tape - PP47FR

Ellen: Hey, everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and we're taking a quick look at the three-roll set of electrical tape. A really handy thing to have whenever you're doing any kind of wiring just to help keep the butt connectors connected together, seal them up, protect them from most grime and dirt from getting in there, causing any issues. It doesn't exactly make it waterproof, but it does help to reduce the instance of water getting into that connection. So, these can be pretty handy for all kinds of different stuff. You can also use this just to help keep wires together, bundle them up, or help to mark things out and all kinds of stuff. more

Hi there Mercedes owners. Today in your 2017, Mercedes GLE 50, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install Tekonsha's ZCI spliceless wiring system. On your Mercedes, your wiring's designed to live inside the vehicle and it will store inside the compartment over here on your passenger side, you can just bundle it up and when you're ready to use it, just pull it out of the compartment and let it drape out the back. You don't want to hit the striker here in the middle, but anywhere along the weather strip along the back here is just fine. It'll pinch it and won't cause any damage. It's just that striker that could potentially cause an issue, so just avoid that. more

Hopkins 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole Adapter Installation - 2019 Toyota Highlander- Video

Hopkins 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole Adapter Installation - 2019 Toyota Highlander

Connor: Hey everybody, how's it going Connor today at etrailer.com. We're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins 4 and 7-Pole Trailer Connector Adapter here for our 2019 Toyota Highlander. Now, granted, this may vary a little bit, depending on what trailer connector mounting bracket we're using, but more often than not, it's going to be secured to the hitch receiver tube here, which is going to give us a nice accessible location here as well as going to be sturdy so we don't have to worry about it shifting around or plugging in our trailer connectors. So a seven-pole trailer connector is going to be a step up from the standard four-way trailer connector, and some reasons why you might need a seven-way trailer connector, number one, the most common is if you have electric brakes on your trailer, you are going to be required to run a seven-way trailer connector.And another common occurrence we see of the seven-way trailer connectors being used is if the trailer has a battery and you need to run a battery charge line circuit. So if you have a larger trailer with electric brakes or an onboard battery, chances are it's going to use a seven-way trailer connector, so we're going to need one of these for the vehicle.So this trailer connector here is sort of unique in that it offers pretty much plug and play installation because it's going to plug into an existing four-way trailer connector we have on the vehicle. And if you don't have one of these, we have plenty of plug and play options here at etrailer. more

Curt Trailer Connector Adapter Installation - 2020 Volvo XC60

Connor: Hey guys, Connor here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the CURT trailer connector adapter here for our 2020 Volvo XC60. So this is what the 7-way is going to look like installed on pretty much all vehicles. As you can see here, the great thing about this adapter here, it's going to take a 4-way flat trailer connector adapter, which is the most common and standard kind and it's going to adapt it into a 7-way trailer connector adapter. We're also still going to retain the 4-way on the side here.So if you're wondering why you would need a 7-way trailer connector and the reason for this is most larger to medium duty trailers or any trailer with brakes for that matter, is going to require the 7-way because the 7-way has more circuits than the 4-way, which allows us to accommodate additional features such as the electric brake output pin or reverse lights, should we need them. It's also going to have a battery charge line circuit if our trailer has an onboard battery. more

As you can see, it doesn't really protrude from the rear bumper due to the way we mounted it. So it has a nice clean, finished install look. And most importantly, it's going to be very accessible for our umbilical cord that goes between the motor home. more

Hey there hollers. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Brophy's LED Circuit Tester. It's available in a 4-pole or 5-pole connection. Before you hit the road with your trailer, we always recommend testing things out to make sure it's working properly. One of the most important things to test out is the lighting so that others know your intentions around you while you're going down the road. Here at etrailer, we recommend testing your light at the source, which is your vehicle. more

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this 7-Way Blade to four or 5-Way Flat Wired Adapter. Now, this is an adapter that'll convert your tow vehicle's 7-Way Blade Connector into this four or 5-Way Flat Pin Connector. This model you can see, has a nice 17.5 inch long length of wire joining the two connectors. So this will work well on vehicles that might have their 7-Way recessed underneath the vehicle, or maybe a truck that's lifted, so you want to gain some extra length when connecting your trailer to your vehicle. more

Curt Powered Tail Light Converter Kit Installation - 2018 BMW X5

Shane: Hey guys, Shane here with entrailer.com. Today, I have a 2018 BMW X5, and I want to walk you through how to install the Curt Powered Tail Light Converter Kit. This is going to give you your four pole connection, so you had all your proper lighting functions to, whether it's a trailer, whether you have a cargo carrier that where you had to move your license plate out to the back of it, and you need that license plate light, or even blinkers on those cargo carriers.Four pole connection is going to give you all those proper lighting functions. It's going to connect the factory wiring behind each tail light. Typically, this wiring harness is designed to be able to live inside the vehicle, and it would just run it right out the bottom side of the bumper here, when you're ready to hook it up. In our case here, our customer wanted it mounted outside the vehicle, which can be a little bit time consuming, but it can be done.You're going to have 4.2 amps per circuit for your stop and turn signals, 7.5 amps per circuit for your tail lights. more

Now it does come with a dust cover, which is nice to keep all that dirt and debris out of the connector. However, our wiring is meant to stay on the inside until we're ready to use it. You can see I have my wiring draped out the back of the hatch, and if we open it up, our wiring can easily store right underneath by our spare tire. Now, I know a lot of people are worried about the wiring getting damaged, but you can see there's plenty of cushion on that weatherstripping there. The wire's not going to get damaged even over time. more
