Video Transcript for Review of Deka Wiring - 16-14 Gauge Butt Connectors - DW05744-5

Jeff Hello everybody this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Deka blue butt connectors for the 16-14 gauge size wire and this is for a quantity of five connectors. Now these blue butt connectors will join two lengths of 16 gauge or 14 gauge sized wire and it will insulate the connection with the heat shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability. Now the blue color on this will indicate the size wire this connector will fit. This one will fit the 16-14 gauge sized wire. And if you forget what color size fits what, it is also stamped on here.

16-14 AWG. Now to install the two wires, what you'll want to do is take your two wires that you're going to connect together and you'll strip off about a quarter of an inch of insulation on each end of the wire. Take your first wire, stick it into this end right here, and push it all the way until it stops. Basically there's a metal casing right there in the middle and in the very center is a little stopper. So when you push the wire in it'll stop and that should put that in the metal casing.

Once you make sure that the stripped portion is under the metal casing, take your crimper, crimp it all the way down until you make a good connection. And then you'll do the same with the second wire. Take the stripped end, stick it all the way in until it goes no further. Make sure it's under the metal or the stripped portion is under that metal casing. And then use your crimper and crimp that side down.

With both of them crimped, then what you'll wanna do is just tug on them, hold both wires and just tug on them. Make sure you have a good connection. Once that's good then what you'll do is get a heat source, like a heat gun, and then just apply heat over this insulation and it will cause this nylon insulation to shrink and it will completely seal around your connection and prevent the elements from causing a problem with your connection. Now this part is for a quantity of five connectors. We do also sell it as a single connector, its part number DWO5744-1.

Or as a ten pack which is part number DWO5744-10. But that should do it for the review on the Deka blue butt connectors for the 16-14 gauge size wire for a quantity of five..

It’s just a satisfactory product. The vinyl shrink connector did shrunk after being heated but it didn’t shrink tight enough. Only time will tell if I will have corrosion in the connected wires when I start launching my jet ski trailer again. My jet ski and trailer has been stored since the pandemic.

Very good service. Have not installed the lights on my trailer yet but all looks as expected.

Had to buy an extra at local auto parts store. Could not get wires to stay in connector long enough to crimp properly.

I have found that the 16-14 Gauge Deka Heat aren't quite as good as their larger 12-10 Gauge counterparts. They still work very well, but the heat shrink shielding is a bit thinner and seems to split easier when making a crimp, and had experiences where the connecter wouldn't grab a 16-gauge wire on the first try. All total I've had an approximate 20% failure rate with this gauge connecter which I feel is a bit high considering their price point. I will use them again in wet use applications, but would like to see some improvements.

No additional failures once installed after one year.

My order was simple, some heat shrink and a few heat shrink butt connectors, no surprise that what I ordered is what was sent. The surprise I did get it how fast the order was processed and shipped. Shipping throughout the country right now is hit or miss- I’ve got an order from a major U.S. distributor for some simple tools, placed 2 weeks ago and still being “processed”...this order with etrailer was like 4 days, including a weekend, from when I clicked submit til it was in my mailbox. That’s outstanding! Thank you!

Just received my order of new backing plate assemblies and some misc small parts. Ordered on line late Sunday night, confirmed I had ordered the right parts Monday morning before shipment went out. Customer service by phone was superb and the gal I talked with was perfect. Shipment was on my porch Friday afternoon. I did open box and inspect shipment that arrived completely intact/good shape and all looked good at this point. Not sure when will get to the brakes on the trailer but will post again when the job is done. So far nothing but good to say about Etrailer.com. Regards, John.

made the trailer light installation very easy to install by removing the old light and install the new led light so using these butt connectors made it easy and painless. Also they were not badly priced so one stop shopping allowed me to order them with my new lights...

Great, brand name products and some hard to find LED side marker lights. Refurbished an old EZ Loader boat trailer for carrying kayaks. Old incandescent lights were rotted off of the frame and the side marker lights in the fiberglass fenders were inside rubber grommets that were dry rotted. Etrailer had all the replacement lights, available in LED, and beat the price of any other option. Quality products. Delivered in 2 days under a free shipping promo. Etrailer is saved to my favorites for any trailer needs. Pic of the Yak project attached. New tail, fender and side marker LEDs!

Because I just received my product, what I am really reviewing is the process for selecting it and the customer service I received. First, my order came very quickly. The part of the process that I appreciated the most was the videos available with each part to show installation. They made it very easy to know that I was ordering exactly what I needed.

Good Product. I am a guy that likes a challenge although this wasen't much of one.. easy instructions, straight forward application and tools this was a fun project. my best advice would be if you're putting together a project of sorts make sure you speak to a rep before you order, that way all the parts you order work well together..

I purchased electronic trailer breaks for my camper. These breaks are an excellent product at a great price. The tutorials that etrailer offers are incredibly helpful and a superb resource. Their customer service is also spot on. When it comes time to work on my boat trailer I know where I'll be going for parts and/or help.

Order arrived very quickly. Placed on Friday, arrived on Tuesday from Mo to Pa. Items were packed well and arrived in good condition. Upon initial inspection all items appear of good quality. Ordered tires, brakes with backing plates, hubs ,seals and grease. Haven't installed any items yet, but I am sure I will have no issues. Free shipping is a plus. Additionally unlike other free shipping offers that are out on the back burner for a week, order was processed and shipped promptly. I have recommended etrailer to friends and would highly recommend them to anyone.

etrailer has always been a pleasure to do business with. The products are easily found on the site. The product offering is broad. The information and videos about product application and use are terrific. Shipping is always on time. I have three trailers and shop here several times a year at etrailer.

  • Replacement Options For Bargman 30-84-013 Double Tail Light
    We do have replacement options, though the Bargman 30-84-013 taillights have been discontinued and there's no available lenses, which means you will need to replace the light. What you can do is choose from either an incandescent or LED option, and I highly recommend the LED because they are brighter and last much, much longer than incandescent lights. The options are the following: - Bargman LED Double Tail Light # 47-84-529 - Bargman Trailer Double Tail Light - Incandescent # 30-84-527 These...

  • How To Wire A 4-Way On a Trailer With 5 Wires
    I would love to help but the only way for certain to be sure you are connecting the correct wires together is to test for function. In order to do this for the trailer you will need to apply 12 volt power to each wire to see which circuit this illuminates. This is the only true way to determine the correct functions as trailer manufactures can use different color wires sometimes and the same can be said for the last person to wire the trailer. Please note when attaching two wires you really...

  • Should Butt Connectors On a Boat Trailer be Replaced with Heat Shrink and Solder
    I assume you are referring to butt connectors and if that is the case then these can very well be the cause of your issue as they can trap corrosion over time and cause problems. If you test for power on the wire going into the connector and then coming out, that should then let you know if power is passing through the butt connector. If it is not then I prefer to solder and heat shrink wires together as this creates the best bond but we also have heat shrink butt connectors like part #...

If you cannot re-attach the wire using a butt connector like part # DW05744-5 then you can replace the 4-way with part # HM48192. If a new ground wire needs to be ran you can use part # DW02359-1 (per foot), part # DW05737-1, and part # FA1131822. The ring terminal will need to be attached to a bare metal surface free of paint.

  • Why is 10 or 12 Gauge Wire Recommended for Electric Brake Assemblies
    The reason that 10 Gauge # 10-1-1 or 12 Gauge # 12-1-1 wire is recommended for 10" brake assemblies, like part # AKEBRK-35-SA, is because they pull more power than the lights on your trailer. I believe the green wire you are referring to carries the right turn/stop lighting functions as you can see from the attached photo of a trailer side 4-Way. The 14 and 16 gauge wires are too small for the amount of power needing to get to the brake assemblies and they could potentially get too hot,...

Once this is done, cut the bonded 4-wire harness a few feet or so from the converter box. Then,...

I have linked an install video. You will need 2 different size butt connectors because there are both 12 gauge and 14 gauge wires in the harness.
