Review of the Wesbar 4-Pole Flat Connector with Jacketed Cable


Hey, everybody Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the west bar jacketed four pole trailer connection. So the one that we have right here is about 14 foot in length, but we're also gonna have a 10 foot, an eight foot and a four foot. It's all gonna have a 14 gauge wire on the inside. And the diameter of this jacket is gonna be about 0.4 of an inch. So now all of these trailer wearings come with jackets.

This is just gonna look a little bit cleaner, but it does have a nice little shape to it. So a little bit bigger down here. So whenever you are pulling it off, one, it gives you plenty of room to be able to wrap around it. And since it's a little bit bigger here, it's gonna be kind of easier to pull it out. If you want the easiest four-pole that is the easiest to disconnect from the other side, the Hopkins has an easy pole, which just has a little circle right here.

And that's probably gonna be the only one that's a little bit easier, but it does not come with this jacket. I really like the jacket just because it's gonna protect it and looks a lot easier. And since we're using a junction box, it makes for a really, really easy and clean connection. So if you follow us down, we basically go on the inside of this tube, all the way to our junction box which is right up here by the trailer. So we're gonna have four different wires that come in here cause it's a four pole.

So if you follow me, we'll so you exactly what it looks like in the junction box, just because I like the junction boxes, they're a little bit cleaner. And if you're adding six accessories and stuff like that, it'll make a nice clean spot to be able to know exactly where everything's going. So we have the jacketed side of our trailer connection going through our junction box and we're gonna have four different wires. So we're gonna have our yellow, which is gonna be our left turn signal and our brake lights. We're gonna have our green is gonna be right.

And our brake lights, we're gonna have white, which is gonna be our ground. And then we're gonna have our brown as well, which is just gonna be your running lights, your taillights and everything else like that, including your license plate lights. So all of these kind of go in here and if you do want to grab a junction box, we do have these here at etrailer. These are just pretty much the cleanest way to wire up your trailer. The only thing that I would add to this is just a little dust cover just because it's gonna be exposed. So if you don't have a great place to put it, I mean, some people just kind of hide it underneath here, but it's not gonna be protected. So there is a dust cover specifically for this and I do recommend that you get. So now that everything's good, it is really smart to check and make sure it works before you button everything up. So we just have a little test box here. This is gonna mimic hooking up to our vehicle. So now as you can see, we do have some lights and stuff turning on. So we have everything turned on, but we're gonna test the functions. So let's start with the right turn signal. Then we're gonna go to the left. And then we want to make sure that our brake lights are working, which everything is good. So once you go through all those checks, you can button everything up and we're pretty much done with the install. If you already have your trailer and it's not really that clean when it comes to wiring and you don't really plan on putting a junction box in, all you're really gonna need to do is just grab some 14 gauge wire and some heat shrink butt connectors. And I would get some loom and we also have some loom hangers. So you're gonna run all this all the way back on the underside of your trailer, if you get on the inside of the tube, great. But a tube doesn't really work that well because it's a lot of tube, it's a lot of wire to fish through there. So you have everything that you need to hook up your trailer regardless of what kind of setup you plan on going for. Whether you go with the junction box or not, we're gonna have to run these wires back to our lights. And as you can see, we have a nice clean look. We got some loom, we got some holders. And then of course we got some lights. If you guys need lights, we've got those too, but the cleaner, the better when it comes to my trailer. So if you really want to make it nice and clean, we have everything you need to do that. All in all, I'm a fan of this one just because it has the thick little casing on the outside. And it just looks a little bit better, it matches my trailer. But if you are looking for one that's gonna be a little bit easier to pull apart, the Hopkins has one that just has a little circle on the inside, which we went over before. That one's gonna be a little bit easier, but this is pretty much checking all the boxes when it comes to trailer connections, and that is gonna do it for our look at the west bar jacketed four pole trailer connection..
