Connection Recommendation for Use with Tekonsha Breakaway Kit to Protect Insulation


on a Tekonsha 50-85-325 breakaway system, can all of the wire connections be made in the 7 wire splice box? and if so do you have a diagram of how this is done? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The Tekonsha Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit with Built-In Battery Charger # 50-85-313 that you referenced was designed to have all of the connections made on the outside of the box which is why it has blunt cut wires that run from the outside of it. It might be possible to have all of the connections done on the inside of the box but we don't have instructions for that.

Since most likely you are wanting to protect the connection and have it insulated one easier solution might be to use butt connectors that have heat shrink built in to them like the Deka part # DW05745-5 which would protect the connection from moisture.
