Snowmobile Trailer wiring question
« on: Oct 02, 2023, 07:54 AM »
Replacing some of the wiring on my snowmobile trailer. Anyone know where I can find this type of pigtail or any ideas for a simple replacement? The bottom of the pigtail has a mail and female end. The top has 2 brown wires and 2 white wires. This connection basically provides the ground and running connections to the whole clamshell trailer.

Thanks, I was looking for an exact replacement if possible. Didnít want to do a bunch of splicing but looks like that might be my only option.

What about a complete re wiring kit ...maybe get you ahead of the game if you have other/unknown wiring issues .

Looks like a splitter  that has the outlet plugs cut off & hardwired.
Google "splitter  for trailer wiring "

Agreed, I did my boat trailer last year new wiring was probably quicker than figuring out the problems.

Tie string to end of old wires, loosen wires and pull it all out the front. Use string to pull new wiring back through.

Struggling to find a wiring harness clamshell trailers. Not to mention the ones I found were quite expensive. I think I could replace the wire for a lot less.

Not knowing the technical jargon while trying to fix things is the worse. Hope you get things fixed up

I would also recommend some dielectric grease when you put it together. Reduces corrosion so the connection is more reliable. Important in the salt.

Yes, absolutely and using all marine grade connections just in case
