Video Transcript for Deka Jacketed 6-Wire Installation

Today on our enclosed trailer, were going to be installing the Deka Jacketed 6-Wire, part number DW04906-1. In conjunction with the wire, well also be installing the Pollak 7-Pole RV-Style Trailer Connector, part number PK12706. Were going to begin here at the junction box thats already installed on this trailer. Now, this trailer already has a 4-flat installed on it, but the customer would like a 7-way also installed in conjunction with the 4-pole. Were going to go ahead and take the cover off our junction box by removing the two screws here, and then pulling the cover off. Our 6-way wire will add in right here through this rubber grommet this part of the junction box.

Go ahead and put a small little cut-in in here that allows to push the wire into the junction box.Well go ahead and pull enough wire in, so we can reach any of the post in the junction box. Now that we know how much wire well need to strip back, well need to put a slit in this black coating, and trim it back to expose the six wires inside. Next, were going to go ahead and add another relief strain here like this piece is that will help keep the wire secure in the box. Go ahead and put the clamp over the wire, and then well install the two screws. Next, well go ahead and trim this piece of here.

It was the center section of the wire. It just help give it some rigidity. We dont need that, so we can trim that out of the way. Then, were going to need to install a ring terminal on the end of all six wires.To do that, well simply strip back a little bit of wire, and then add our ring terminal on, and crimp it down. Im going to go ahead match up a few of the colors to the colors that are already here.

The brown will go over here to the brown. Take the green, and go to the green. Yellow will go to yellow. The white will go over to the white. The red would be the brake signal.

This trailer currently doesnt have brakes, so were going to go ahead and hook it up here. The black is the 12-volt hat or the charge circuit. We are going to hook that up here. Theres already a black wire to it. Now, well need to go ahead and remove the knot and the little star washer thats underneath each of these, and in our ring terminal, and then replace the star washer and the knot.Once we do that, we can go ahead and tighten them all down. Now that we have all of our wires tightened down, we can go ahead and put the junction box cover back on, and then tighten down the two bolts. Now, were going to go ahead and add a couple loom clamps to support the wire as we run it up towards the front of the tongue of the trailer. Were going to be tying in by using the existing bolts to hold these other loom clamps in place. Well first need to remove the bolt. Go ahead and repeat the same process up here on the second loom clamp.Next, were going to need to go ahead and pull some of the black jacketing off of the other end of the wire, so that we can connect our new 7-pole connector. Well then take a pair of side-cutters and trim off the excess that we peeled back. Ill also go ahead and trim this center piece out of here, so we wont need that in there. Now, well need to take our new 7-way plug. Well need to undo this screw right here and this screw right here, so that we can take the center part out, so that we can wire it. Well go ahead and loosen up this screw here. This is what holds the wire tight. Then, take our wires. Well feed them through the backside of the plug here. Well go ahead and just slide it down a little bit passed where we need to be till we get all of our connections made.Now, were going to go ahead and need to strip back a little bit of wire on all six wires. Now, were going to go ahead and connect our wires to the backside of the plug here. Connect the white wire right here. On this other side, this prong right here, well be connecting the red wire. Next, were going to go ahead and connect the green wire which is our right turn and brake. Well put that right here. The next wire up will be the black wire which will be the 12-volt positive or the 12-volt charge line. The next wire well connect is the brown wire which is the tail and running lights. The last wire here is the yellow wire, and thats the left brake and turn. We will not be using this center post or the center pin on this particular application.I will go ahead and slide the plastic cover back up over. Well go ahead and line the slot up here in the plastic portion with this slot here. Well then slide the plug back together. Well then reinstall that little screw that we removed earlier. Next, well go ahead and tighten down this screw here that helps keep the wire in the plug itself. Now, lets go ahead and test to make sure everything is working just fine. Were going to go ahead and use our tester. If you dont have a tester, you can use your tow vehicle and plug the trailers 7-way into the vehicles 7-way.Now, well go ahead and test our running lights. You can see here theyre working just fine. Next, well go ahead and test our left side blinker, and now our right side blinker. Now, well go ahead and check our brake lights. With that, that will conclude our installation of the Deka Jacketed 6-Wire, part number DW04906-1 on our enclosed trailer. .

Just what was needed


The 6 wire heavy jacket trailer wire is exactly what I needed to rewire my cargo trailer. It is very well
made and I believe will last an extremely long time. I have always been very satisfied with all my orders
from Etrailer, great job!

Robert S.


After having for a year it has held up extremely well! No complaints whatsoever. I am very happy buying all my trailer parts from etrailer. Great job!


Like always the customer service was excellent in helping to find the product that I wanted.
I am rewiring the lights on my trucks head ache rack so that they will have all three functions stop/trun/tail in all four lights. I wanted five wires in a protective sleeve and a junction box to make the installation as clean and weather prof as possible.
Well done etrailer


This 6 conductor wiring cable is just what I need to do a wiring repair on my flatbed trailer that I am redecking. I previously had used the trailer in a heavy brush environment and snagged the wiring and tore it loose. The trailer was due to have the decking replaced so using the opportunity to do a more permanent fix on the electrical.
Very impressed with etrailer's website, ordering was easy, and your shipping time was just excellent. Tracking the order was great as your customer service folks got the info right up and into my email.
Definitely will keep you in mind for future business.


I had to replace the wiring harness from the hitch to the rear taillights. Although this size gauge wire was about two sizes too big for my little trailer I was still able to make it work. It has good rubber shield to protect the inner wires.


Rugged, durable, perfect for protection of wires running exterior to vehicle or trailer. Makes for easy wiring into a connector. Great wire for 6 signals. Running, Brake, Left turn, right turn, ground, and brakes.


We rewired our 18' flatbed with this wire. The manufacturer had wired it up with 2-wire to the brakes and a 3-wire strand to the rear lights, so this really cleaned it up. We added a junction box to simplify adding additional lights to the trailer.


This product was a direct functional replacement for my previous main cable running to the back of my utility trailer. The jacket is thick, but flexible even when being installed in freezing temperatures. It was easy to work with and feed through grommets. Quality product and great price from etrailer.


This is a well made cord with a very thick and tough insultation on the outside. The 14 gauge copper wires are color coded and have a thick insultation on them too. I am using this to go from the front of my trailer to the rear tail lights and marker lights. The copper wire solders very easily.


The wire is not builky at all. Maybe a half inch at most around. Perfect for my trailer to connect the electric breaks, running lights, blinkers,and tail lights. As well as have the acc wire to connect flood lights to trailer which will be good for night when I go camping and need to see


Super flexible and easy to strip. A good value for any trailer project.


The cord was very good quality and was able to be pulled through the frame of my trailer as I upgraded my utility trailer to the 5 pin plug for added reverse lights.


Used this wire to rewire a 25 yr old trailer. High quality, easy to work with, jacket is very sturdy. Had a hard time finding something comparable locally without making it myself. Service from Etrailer was excellent, will definitely be buying more in the future when the time comes to put new wiring on my other trailers.


Etrailer has what you need in stock and ships it out quickly. This is the kind of service I like when working on a project that needs completed quickly to get back on the road. The 6 pin connector and 6 conductor cable that I ordered are quality items. The cable is very flexible and not stiff like the cheap stuff. A great addition to the trailer fix.


Excellent product, sturdy, great for that final wiring down to the trailer plug / receptacle - great protection for inner wires for long lasting single solution for towing a vehicle.


I looked all over for this hard to find product but etrailer came through as always. Wire is outstanding quality and the price is very reasonable. This is likely the last lighting wire I'll need for my TOAD. Thanks so much!!


Not ready to do the install yet. Doing other mechanical work under the car so I can’t get in the interior. Wire harness is well made


Good quailty wire, with strong, flexible outer covering. Looks like it will be ideal for its intended purpose hooking up my car to tow behind my motorhome.

As always, excellent service from E Trailer. Good price, non abusive shipping cost and quick delivery.


Husband very satisfied


parts purchased from for my homemade cargo trailer


When I cannot find what I need for my trailers locally, is my go to source. In this case I needed a six conductor cable, nine feet long to complete the rewiring of a stock trailer. had exactly what I needed, again.


Just what I needed to extend my trailer wiring hook up!


Excellent service. I ordered on the 29th (evening) and all items were here afternoon of the 31st! The customer service rep. helped me find the exact replacement parts that worked for my application. The pricing was a lot better than I could find on the internet or locally. I will definitely order from etrailer again.


Very durable! I use for wiring harness that I take off and remove several times a day and have had no issues in 3 years. Just bought more for backup. Strongly recommend


Made in USA wire ordered junction box as well and already have it together. Very clean looking with good connections

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Kit for Gooseneck Trailer
    I do have everything you need to replace the wiring and lights (if needed) on a gooseneck trailer but they don't offer any sort of kits for this as the lights will vary widely. I recommend starting with the wiring up front, the etrailer Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit part # e99011. You can then run the wires from the junction box to the lights and brakes using the part # DW04906-1 by foot. I have attached our light selection below as well if you want to replace these.

  • What Wire Gauge Can Be Used with Pollak 6-Pole Wiring Socket PK11609
    I believe you are referring to the Pollak 6-Pole Trailer Wiring Socket - Vehicle End # PK11609. If you are asking about a different product please just let me know. This particular socket is designed to handle up to 12 gauge wire, but the most commonly used size wold be the slightly smaller 14 gauge that's found inside the Jacketed 6-Wire # DW04906-1, which is sold by the foot. I have attached a couple short video reviews below that you might also find helpful.

  • How to Make a 5-Way Round to 5-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Adapter
    We don't have an already assembled adapter for what you are looking for, but you can pretty easily make one with components that we sell. For the 5-way round for your tow vehicle you would want the part # PK11501, for jacketed wire you would want the part # DW04906-1 which is sold by the foot. This is 6 wires so you would just not need to use one wire. We don't have 5 wires jacketed. Then for a 5-way flat connector that would connect to the 5-way on your trailer you would want the part...

  • 6-Pole Extension Recommendation for 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2005 Hunter Fat Shadow Trailer
    We do have a solution for you, but the Hopkins Heavy-Duty Trailer Coiled Extension # HM47055 you referenced has female connectors on both ends and is 8 feet in length. If you have a 6-way male connector on your FJ, my recommendation is to replace the connector with the appropriate length of Deka Wire # DW04906-1 and use a Pollak 6-Pole Connector # PK11604. By using this, you will not need an extension. I have provided a link to a video showing how to replace a 6-pole connector.

  • Can I Use Jacketed 6 Wire To Add 1-1/2 Feet To Trailer Connector Wire?
    Yes, you can purchase the Jacketed 6 Wire - per foot # DW04906-1 to add length to your trailer connector cable for slack. I recommend replacing the entire length so you don't have weather issues with your splicing or use heat shrink butt connectors like # DW05744-10 or using a junction box like # 38656.

  • Outer Diameter of the 6 Conductor 14 ga Wire # DW04906-1 and Can it be used for Electric Brakes
    The outside diameter of the Jacketed 6 Wire, item # DW04906-1, trailer cable is 1/2 inch. 14 gauge wire could be used for the brake and 12 volt power wires as long as the amperage requirement is not too high. The temperature coating on the wires in the 6 wire cable is good to 176 degrees Fahrenheit. If your trailer is a single axle trailer with only two small brake assemblies, 14 gauge wire will be sufficient. We normally err on the side of caution and use larger wire for trailer brakes...

  • Wiring Adapter for Flat Towing to Connect 6-Round to 4-Round
    You will need to make your own adapter because there are no 6-round to 4-round adapters, and we do have the parts you need in order to do that. For the 6-round you will need the Pollak 6-Pole Round Trailer Wiring Connector # PK11604. Then for the 4-round you will need the Pollak 4-Pole Round Pin Trailer Wiring Connector # PK11402. To connect them you will simply need the Jacketed 6-Wire # DW04906-1. The wire is sold by the foot so you can get the exact length you need.

    In order to have a wiring extension with 2 vehicle end connectors on it, you will want to create your own extension. We do not carry a pre-wired extension with 2 vehicle end 6-pole connectors. You will want to use 2 of the Pollak 6-Pole, Round Pin, Trailer Wiring Socket # PK11609. These will need to be wired to either end of a length of 6-wire. You can use the Deka Wire - Jacketed 6-Wire # DW04906-1. This wire is sold by the foot, so you can order the best length for your application....

    To construct a 25 foot long cable with a 6-way trailer plug on it, you'd want to purchase the Deka Jacketed 6-Wire Cable, part # DW04906-1. The wire is sold by the foot. You'd wire the cable onto the Hopkins Endurance # HM48440 6-way trailer end plug. Bargman doesn't offer a 6-way molded connector with a 25 foot length.

    The Bargman 6-Way Super Sealed Connector with Cable that you referenced, part # 50-86-007, includes two integrated mounting tabs, one on either side of the 6-way round connector. No bracket is required, although you do need to supply two screws to attach the connector at the rear of your tow vehicle. I did try a test-fit of this harness with several of the brackets we offer but none will accommodate the size of the cable housing. If you prefer to have your 6-way bracket-mounted you could...

  • Jacketed 5 Pole Trailer Wiring
    The best I can do for you is recommend getting the Hopkins Wiring Harness # HM37918 and some wire loom # 7509-1. The only jacketed wiring we have are 4 pole connectors. The wiring harness is plenty long so you can just cut off the excess. If you only need exactly 10ft you can get the 10ft roll of loom # 7509-10. One thing you could do is get this # DW04906-1 jacketed 6-wire which you can buy per foot. You won't use the 6th wire so just cap it off if need be.

  • Tow Bar Wiring From a 6-Round Connector to a 4-Round Connector
    You're likely not going to find a 6-Round to 4-Round cord for flat towing a vehicle so the next best thing is to build your own. You can use the 6-Round connector # PK11604 and 4-Round connector # PK11402. Then connect the two with # DW04906-1 which is sold by the foot.

  • Can 12 Volt Power Be Run With a 4 Flat Trailer Plug?
    Typically a 4 Flat plug will not have a lead that goes to a battery as the White wire is the Ground, The Yellow is Left Turn/Brake, Green in Right Turn/Brake, and Brown is Running Lights. If you were using this for a different application, you can technically use any of the wires to run to the battery, but I do recommend using the White as the Ground as this is the standard. If you are using this as trailer wiring, I recommend going a different way. The Deka Jacketed 6-Wire # DW04906-1...

  • Replacing Horse Trailer Wiring
    If you currently have a 6-way connector on your trailer, the 7-wire # DW04914-1 will be too large for your connector. In that case, you will want to use the 6-wire # DW04906-1. If your vehicle has a 7-way connector and you've been using an adapter, this is a great time to add a 7-way connector to your trailer to avoid needing the adapter. A 7-way connector is the more commonly found connector. You can use the 7-wire # DW04914-1 with a 7-way connector # PK12706, or a pre-wired connector...

You can verify this using a circuit tester like part # 3808.
