Video Transcript for Review of Deka Wiring - 12-10 Gauge Butt Connectors - DW05745-5

Hello everybody, this is Jeff with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Deka yellow butt connectors for 12-10 gauge size wire. This is for a quantity of five connectors. Now, these yellow butt connectors will join two lengths of 12-gauge or 10-gauge size wire. It will insulate the connection with the heat shrinkable nylon for adjustability and durability and the yellow color of this connector indicates the size wire the connector will fit which is 12 to 10 gauge size, and also if you don't remember the color, what size it fits, it is stamped on the connector, 12-10 AWG, which it's telling you. But basically when you install this, what you'll do is get your two wires and enough you'll strip about a quarter of an inch of insulation off the end of each wire that you're wanting to connect, and then what you'll do is insert the end of the one wire all the way in into the metal casing until it stops right in the very center, they do have a stopper, so you push the wire in there, once it stops you make sure it's in the metal casing there and then what you'll do is take your crimper and you'll just crimp down on that metal casing until it holds the wire in place, and then you'll take your second wire and do the same on the other side, slide it all the way in, the part that you've stripped off, slide that all the way in 'til it stops, make sure it's in the metal casing, take your crimper, crimp it all the way down.

Once your two wires are in there, what you might wanna do is pull on both wires just to make sure you do have a good connection, that they've been crimped correctly. If that's all fine, then what you'll do is you'll take a heat source like a heat gun and then just apply heat over the whole insulation and what'll happen is it'll cause this nylon insulation to heat to shrink and it'll completely seal around your connection and prevent the elements from causing any problem with your connection. Now this part is for a quantity of five connectors. We do also sell this in a single pack which is part #DW05745-1, and also as a ten-pack, part #DW05745-10. But that should do it for the review on the Deka yellow butt connectors for the 12-10 gauge size wire for a quantity of five..

The products were ordered on Sunday night late, delivered by Wednesday. Converting drum surge brakes to disc, electric over hydraulic on a boat trailer for 26ft Sea Ray boat. I had everything including Titan brake actuator, 4 kodiac rotor and caliper conversion kits with bearings, and new lines installed by Thursday evening. Installation was straight forward, everything fit perfectly. One of the calipers was malfunctioning (not releasing). I called customer service and I had a new one within two days, it's now installed and working great!! Great product! Awesome service!!

Use these for a weathertite connection. These are well worth the money to prevent electrical problems from corroded connectors.

I have never regretted using the weather proof electrical connection, because the heat shrink tubing ensures a tight, dry seal. Absolutely no problems electrically.

Excellent products, shipped as promised and arrived on time. I have installed all the products. Although it took me longer then a professional installer, I had little to no issues. The online installation videos for all the parts (which were attached to the online order status sheet) made it extremely easy to install. The videos were of a professional actually installing the equipment step by step. etrailer.com has a customer for life.

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.

My parts arrived on time. The shipping was very prompt. The parts ordered were all there and looked good. Haven't installed the brakes yet, as I have to weld on flanges first. Also I have to replace the SS sleeves that the seals runs on with a slightly larger one, as the new seals are larger. I may send you a picture with the new flanges and SS sleeves in place, when I'm done. Thank you for the great service.

I basically ordered enough parts to replace the eitire magnetic brake / hub assembly on two (2) 3500# Dexter Axles after I replaced the bent axles that were underneath my 2011 Surveyor SP280 Travel Trailer. It turned out to be a better deal to replace the assemblies rather than rebuild / resurface what I had. The parts that I ordered arrived quickly but were a little scuffed up due to the packaging materials used but in general the parts were not severely damaged. The fit of the parts has been very good and to this point I am satisfied with the purchase. I suppose "the rest of the story" will be told when we go camping for the first time and see how the parts perform when "the rubber hits the highway".

  • Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Trailer Connected with 2016 Nissan Frontier
    It sounds like the brake output (blue) wire and the 12 volt power (black) wire have been switched. This is a pretty common problem on Nissan's so much so that we have an entire help article on the issue which I have attached for you. The fix is very easy though, all you need to do is switch the blue and black wires at the back of the trailer connector. In order to do this I recommending the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors part # DW05745-5.

  • Installing Brake Wiring on a Trailer
    I have attached a diagram for you to check out. This is taken from a helpful article on our site about wiring that I have linked for you as well. The Blue wire on the diagram is what you want to pay special attention to. If you can route it through a tube for more protect then that's what I recommend doing. The wire that should be used for the trailer brakes needs to be 10 Gauge Wire # 10-1-1. You can use Butt Connectors # DW05745-5 to make your connections. Simply splice 2 ends of...

    If you check out the instructions manual for your (discontinued) Prodigy RF 90250 it features a troubleshooting chart with common problems that people find. Among them is the n.c. signal that you referenced. I don't believe that you need a lamp out adapter as that has to do more with LED lights on your trailer causing your 2013 Volvo XC90 to read that a trailer light is burned out. What I recommend doing is to start off by using a Circuit Tester # 40376 to make sure that you have 12V...

    Your 2021 GMC Acadia with the factory tow package does have the needed wiring so you can install the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller # TK90160. It isn't a plug-and-play option so you'll just need to connect the wires that are coming from the Primus IQ, so no additional wiring connector is necessary for purchase. The blunt-cut wires for your Acadia should be under the dash, behind the panel, taped up in the area around the gas pedal. You can connect those wires with the Deka...

  • Troubleshooting Running Lights that are Blinking When Turned On
    Whenever we see lighting issues it usually stems from a bad ground or a short somewhere. This can be the result of a bad 7-Way connector or wiring. Since you have exposed wires where you have done your splicing I highly recommend using some heat shrink butt connectors to get your wiring all sealed up properly. You can use part # DW05745-5 for the bigger 12-10 gauge wires and part # DW05744-5 for the smaller 16-14 gauge wires. These are heat shrink connectors which will seal around the...

  • Replacement For 7-Way Trailer Connector With Molded Cable
    While that brand is not familiar, if it is a 7-way trailer connector with a molded cable, you will indeed need to replace the connector by cutting the wires. While I know it is not the news you were looking for, it is what you'll need to do as the plugs themselves won't come off. So what you will need to do is to just replace it with another 7-way with a cable that you'll connect the wiring to: - 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20043 This connector uses 10, 12, and 14 gauge...

  • How to Remove Old Butt Connector to Install New Trailer Tail Lights
    When a butt connector is used to connect your wiring you will simply need to cut the butt connector off on the trailer side. You should be able to see some metal inside the butt connector that has been crimped down. Try to cut the wiring as close to that as possible so that you don't lose too much of it. Once the wire is cut just strip some of it back and use new butt connectors for the installation. I recommend using heat shrink butt connectors like part # DW05745-5 as they provide...

    If your pickup is the 2016 Ram 2500 that you chose for the fitguide then it is very unlikely that the issue is with your truck. Changing the 7-Way connector on your gooseneck trailer was a great starting point but it does sound like you are correct about there being a short.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes That One Brake Locks Up Before Other Three
    It's likely your problem is in the wiring for the brakes rather than the brake assemblies. It sounds like your first brake is drawing all the power and the other 3 are not receiving any or at least not enough power. Verify there are no kinks or bad spots on the wiring and no corrosion at the connection points. It is also a good idea to check the wiring connection to ensure that the butt connectors are secure. Using heat shrink butt connectors, like # DW05745-5, will help protect the wiring...

  • Does Wire Color Matter on Electric Trailer Brakes
    Ok, so for electric trailer brakes, the color of the wires coming out of the brakes does not actually matter for the electric brakes we offer. For example, Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # 23-26-27 uses two green wires, and either can be connected to your ground and brake wiring, as you can see at about the 6:35 mark of the linked installation video of these brakes.

    To replace your existing brakes on your tandem axle boat trailer where the axle is rated for 3500 pounds and the drum is 10” in diameter, I will work on the assumption that the brake drum depth is 2-1/4 inches as is standard. These will work on the standard 4-bolt mounting brake flange. The self-adjusting brakes I would recommend are the Dexter # 23-468-469 “Nev-R-Adjust” brake pairs. (You will need to order two pairs.) I have included links to an install video. During the installation...

  • 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,...

    The wires on the Hopkins wiring harness item # HM11141144 are 6" long. I recommend using butt connectors instead of splicing the wires together so you have plenty of room. 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. I recommend item# DW05744-5 for your 14 gauge and item# DW05745-5 for your 12 gauge wires.
