I ended up doing some metal work installed new leaf pins/bushing on that trailer, sandblasted, new paint/deck. so just installed about a month ago and works great . Quality wire should last. Thanks as always.

I want to thank you for all your help with my trailer you were more helpful than you realize. So this is my trailer for a 22' Flats Cat shallow draft Catamaran. I totally dismantled my trailer and buffed by hand with a wire buffer and sand blasted in some spots and applied multiple coats of some very expensive galvanize paint (Z.R.C.). I installed all new C. E. Smith Carpet (about 80'), seven new LED waterproof lights, new springs, new equalizers, new tongue jack, new wench, new safety chain, new chain brackets, all new SS hardware and a 35' long wiring harness. I was able to send only one review with a picture of the safety chain and brackets. I'm having a little trouble with the rest..oh some of these items were bought locally or from your competitors, until I found ETRAILER. Your prices were cheaper for the exact same things. Your helpful how to videos were helpful. And Rose, your personal helpful knowledge made my buying experience very pleasant, I actually enjoyed talking to you! Thanks to ETRAILER and specifically to Rose G.

The plug looks and feels solid! This is the only place that had a long enough wiring harness to do what I needed. Shipping was also very fast!

After one year, It is still working great! It makes all the difference having long enough wires to where there is no splicing on a saltwater boat trailer.

This worked great, had to rewire my trailer after having it painted and reconfigured and this item was long enough and allowed me to tie in my additional lights.

by:

Perfect! Just what I needed!! I could only find a harness plug with one brown wire (4 wires total) at my local stores. I "googled" the problem I had (my harness plug had 2 brown wires). A rep from etrailer had answered someone's same question on a message board. It was a detailed explanation as to why one would need this part. Then the rep put a link to the etrailer site. And there is was, the harness plug with 2 brown wires (5 wires total) and at an agreeable price to boot!!!!! And now I know about the etrailer website!!!!

by:

I have purchased twice for 2 separate boat trailers from etrailer. If you utilize a flat 4 plug as I do, they are a must. The harness coils nicely with ample extension. The harness is well built as is the majority I purchase from etrailer.

I purchased this to update my very old and non-functioning pontoon trailer wiring. I needed the extra length and was glad etrailer provided it as an option. Since the new wiring harness was already set up to run each side separately, it made easy work of rewiring the trailer. I really like etrailer products. I think they are of good quality for a good price. Sorry, no photos of the job.

Working like a charm. Still happy with the product and the outcome.

Good quality products, and very fast shipping. I have trusted e-trailer with past purchases as well. This order included led tail lights and wire harness for my pontoon trailer. I needed a 35 foot harness and e-trailer had it. They are very difficult to find. And the lights and wiring was first class. Also e-trailer provides good videos for product instructions. Great company.

I ordered the 4 way trailer end plug/wiring assy (35 Ft 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness - Wishbone Style - 42" Ground Item # A35W42B), and it was at my house in about 3 days! And at a great price to boot!! I checked around all of the local auto parts stores, and none even had this product on hand! I'm bypassing the local stores now when J can, and ordering strictly from etrailer. Their prices are great, product selection is beyond any others I've seen. And their professional and informed people never fail to follow up with a complimentary email to make sure everything is to my satisfaction. If you're looking for towing-related items, look no farther than etrailer!!

Good product, but was apparently out of stock, with long lead time. Offered an acceptable replacement, but before shipping called to say that they found a supply of the original part and made sure they shipped what was originally ordered. Good communication from the company throughout the process.

Wires installed easy and worked for a couple of months. After getting the boat ready this spring I noticed that despite using watertight shrink wrapped and liquid electrical tape sealed connections the wires had completely corroded and now need to rewire the trailer all over again.

Absolutely Fabulous! Exactly what I was looking for but couldn't find at any retail store in my area! The wishbone design splits the brown wire at the plug. Makes wiring both sides of the trailer with no splices or having to find additional brown wire sold by the foot!

  • 40' Wishbone Trailer Wiring With A Ground Wire Running Down Both Sides
    We do not offer wishbone wiring that has a ground wire going down both sides. You really don't need it because the ground wire is for the plug itself not the lights and you want the ground close to the plug. I recommend using the 4-Way Wishbone Trailer Wiring Harness Item # A40W42B.

  • How Does the 35 Foot Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness # A35W42B Function
    The way that the 35 foot Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness, # A35W42B, works is instead of having 1 taillight wire (brown) that you would need to splice into in order to run to both taillights, this harness has two wires (one attached to each stop/turn signal wire). The wires are attached to each other (except at the 4-Way connector) so you cannot mix them up. This would be good for your application since you will not have to splice wires that could end up being exposed to the water....

  • Wiring Stop Turn and Tail Light Circuits to a Trailer Light
    Your trailer lights should only have one wire if the light serves only one function (tail light, marker light, stop/turn). The white wire shown in the photo that you attached is a ground wire and will not be connected to the tail light or stop/turn circuits. The bulb attached to your light housing looks like an 1157 bulb, which is a dual filament bulb that has two contacts for two different circuits. You should have two wires on the back of the light housing, one for the stop/turn circuit...

  • What Wire Gauge is Used on the 35 ft. Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness, # A35W42B
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a 35 ft. Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness, # A35W42B, and used a wire gauge tool to measure the wires. The copper wire itself is 20 gauge. If you measure the wire with the insulation on it then it is thicker but wire gauge corresponds to the strands not the insulation part.

  • All Trailer Lights Blink With Turn Signal on 2007 Triton ATV Trailer
    The fact that you have an aluminum trailer could be the problem. Aluminum does not make for a good ground. What I recommend is to located the ground wires at the backs of the lights and attach jumpers from the grounds to the main trailer connector ground. This is a common issue with aluminum frames, tilt trailers, and trailers with folding tongues. Also check the towing vehicle and trailer connectors for dirt and corrosion. Corrosion could cause a short or even a bad ground as well. The...

  • Tracking Down Possible Poor Ground Connection on Travel Trailer
    What you're describing is the classic symptom of a poor ground connection somewhere in your trailer lighting system. When all the functions are being used, you're drawing maximum amperage through the system, which is when a ground problem will manifest itself. Trace the white ground wire back from the trailer connector. The wire will usually ground to the trailer frame somewhere on the trailer tongue. Make sure this connection is secure and not corroded. Each trailer lamp will also have...

  • Troubleshooting Right Stop/Turn Circuit on Aluminum Trailer
    It sounds like you have narrowed the problem down to being somewhere on the right stop/turn circuit (green wire) on the trailer. If you can use your circuit tester to test that circuit as close to the light assembly as possible to see if the light is getting voltage or not. The other possible problem is that the ground of the assembly isn't sufficient. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector grounds...

  • Wiring Brakes On Tandem Axle Trailer
    Typically trailer wiring is color coded. The brake circuit is usually a blue wire which travels to each brake magnet, where it is attached to one wire from each brake magnet. The other wire from each brake magnet will ground to the trailer frame. I have attached a drawing that shows how the wiring is typically run for brakes on a trailer. I have also attached a link to trailer wiring diagrams that may help.

  • Wiring Electric Trailer Brakes with Magnets that Have 2 White Wires
    It sounds like the magnets or their wiring could be bad. Your 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is probably sensing the wrong resistance from the trailer brake magnets and that is why you see that warning message. When magnets have 2 of the same color wire it usually means that you can use either one for either function. The black wire with the 12 volt power should not be attached to the brakes. Only the blue wire should connect to the brakes. The other magnet wire should be attached to the...

  • Installing a Trailer Wiring Harness on a Trailer with Yellow, Black and White Tail Light Wires
    When it comes to tail light wiring, black is usually the running light circuit and white is usually ground. That would leave the yellow wire for the brake light and turn signal. On trailers, the turn signal and brake lights are combined on the same circuit. When installing a harness like the Optronics Wishbone 4-way Harness, # A35W42B, the green wire would connect to the yellow wire on the passenger side tail light and the brown wire with the green stripe would connect to the black wire...

  • 2009 Smart ForTwo Wiring with Diodes for Towing Behind a Motor Home
    Yes, you will need the diodes to tow your 2009 Smart ForTwo and have the taillights function properly while protecting the vehicles electronics. You will need to cut the vehicles wiring and splice the diodes in so that the diode will allow only one source of power to be applied to the vehicles lights at a time. The single spade connector coming out of the diodes is the connection to the vehicles bulb. The two connectors going into the diodes will be from the vehicles lighting system and...

  • Trailer Brake Wiring for Tandem Axle Brake System
    I'm not sure what the sensor you describe is for. Typically trailer wiring is color coded so that right turn and brake light signal is carried by a green wire, and the brown wire carries the running light circuit. The brake output circuit is usually carried by a blue wire which travels to each brake magnet, where it attaches to one lead from each magnet. The other lead from each magnet will ground to the trailer frame. I'll give you a link to a typical trailer wiring diagram. I also...

  • What Wiring Harness Do I Need to Rewire a Boat Trailer with Two Tail Light and Two Side Lights?
    Assuming that your trailer uses a 4-Pole connector, we have exactly what you need. The Wishbone 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness, part # A35W42B would work perfectly for you. The wire for the running light circuit is actually split into two wires, one to run down each side of the trailer. As each running light wire runs down the side of the trailer, tap your side marker lights into this circuit and continue running it to the rear lights.

    The 35 Ft 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness - Wishbone Style - 42" Ground # A35W42B you referenced as both part numbers. I looked at your invoice and there was not a different part number so I see that is what you have that isn't what you desire. The only difference between the wishbone style harness and the traditional 4 way harness is the wishbone harness has two separate wires coming from the running/clearance light pin. This is to allow separating that circuit to run down each side of...

  • How To Ground New Trailer Lights that Ground Through Hardware
    The problem is the ground. A lot of trailer lights ground through the mounting hardware but not all trailer applications have lights that attach to metal portions of the trailer which then touch the trailer frame. So what you'll need to do is run a jumper wire from the ground of your lights to the frame or back up to the main ground of the wiring harness and you'll see the lights start to work again.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring Brake Circuit Signal that Stopped Working After 7-Way Replacement
    Since the trailer is no longer able to recognize a trailer connection the issue is most likely that the brake output circuit of the wiring was damaged when the old one was yanked out. This is a fairly common issue so you'll need to go over the wiring looking for any shorts or broken wire and fix as needed.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer with LED Taillights Where all Lights Shut Off When Running Lights are On
    I'd be willing to bet you have a short on the running light circuit of your trailer wiring that's touching the trailer frame which is causing your problems. Since the lights are grounding through the frame a short to the ground of all of the circuits will take out all of the lights that are using the frame as a ground. Go over the running light circuit looking for any cut or exposed wire and fix as needed.

  • Can All Trailer Lights Be Grounded to a Single Point
    Yes, you can tie all of the ground wires for your trailer lights to a single point of connection. We actually recommend this as it can sometimes cut down on the amount of issues and the time it takes to troubleshoot faulty lights. Please be sure that the ground you are using is suitable which means it is a bare metal surface. If you need any lights or wiring connectors for your trailer then take a look at the attached selection I have included for you which has many options for you to...

  • How to Install New Tail Lights with Different Color Wires
    There is not a standard wire color to function chart on a trailer for anyone to abide by so it will be best to test for function with a circuit tester. In order to check this all you need to do is start the vehicle, plug the trailer connector in, and test each of the wires while the corresponding signal is activated. The light should then specify which wire is for which function but you will again need to test the trailer wiring to determine which color wire has which function. Unfortunately,...

  • Do Trailer Brake Assemblies Have a Power and Ground Wire
    Trailer brakes use a magnet for activation that is not polarity sensitive. That means that either wire can be used as the power or the ground as long as the other is the opposite. I'd check to see where all three of your wires run on your trailer to verify what's going on. It could be that the two wire that are spliced together are for the positive of one brake assembly and then the positive to run over to the other side of the trailer and the white is ground, but you'll have to check more...

  • Tip for Wiring up Trailer 4-Way by Function
    The standard way a 4-way gets wired is the jacketed pin is the ground (normally white) the next one to it is the running light circuit and is normally brown, next to it is the left turn/stop circuit and is normally yellow, and finally the last pin is the right turn/stop circuit which is normally green. You are going to have to wire your setup by function.
