Trailer wiring

Question

harvey lee

I need to put a new female connector on my 4-wheeler trailer. I took off the 5 wire-4 post connector and need to connect a new one to the truck.

I have a 4 prong-4-wire female and cannot seem to get it all to work right.

Can someone please suggest which wires go to which. I have 5 from the trailer and 4 from the truck.

Thanks

The yellow is the left stop/turn signal wire. The green is the right stop/turn signal wire. The two brown wires are the running lights and can be spliced to the single brown wire on the four way connector. The white wire is ground.

If you have a 5th wire of blue color from trailer, it's the electric brake (or reverse lock).

It's up to you to use it it not.

Electric brakes are run in conjunction with a box inside cab

Tom,

If you have not already cut wires, could you buy and adapter at Northern? They have a ton of them. I think you have the little 5 wire round connector. You could buy an adapter to go to a flat 4 prong?

Good luck!

Are you getting ready for hunting?

I had a 5 wire -4 prong flat connector. I got it wired this morning. The trailer is 4 years old and its a aluminum. I redid all the ground wires direct to the light boxes as it seems with the trailer light box to the alum. frame, you get corrision and lose your ground. I figure with the ground wire right to the light I should eliminate that problem with corrision.

Yes, getting everything ready for the fall archery season in North Dakota. 4- wheelers, stands, blinds and all the other gear my son is taking up this weekend. He is also putting out some mineral blocks, camera's and setting up some stands. It will be easy when I get up there to hunt.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
