The Modular Plug & Go Connection System from Grote
Modular Design
The UBS system provides true “Plug & Go”
modular convenience and reliability for trailer
electrical installations. It’s designed around a
family of standardized components that plug
together to form complete lighting and wiring
systems. UBS components can be used to create
systems for most styles and sizes of trailers
including dry vans, tankers, reefers, flat beds and
special task trailers such as container chassis.
The modular design means that all UBS
components provide positive connectivity no
matter what the design function and position on the
trailer requires. Grote engineers design our lamps
to fit our plugs and our plugs to work with our
lamps.
Interchangeability
The modular design also means that the
components can be changed without requiring
cutting and splicing into the harness system. If for
instance a jumper is damaged, it can be changed
with a new, replacement part without the need for
trimming to length, crimping or soldering.
Double Seal Technology
At the heart of the UBS system is the patented
Grote Double Seal feature. It provides double
protection from moisture and contaminants. The
Double Seal effect results from a molded-in
circular ring in the connector, which corresponds to
a mating ring on the lamp.
The inner sealing ring covers the terminal area and
outer ring, or dust skirt, seals around the outside
area of the lamp plug connection. The Double Seal
drastically decreases water intrusion and corrosion.
Another UBS advantage is the Grease Groove
design on the male-pin plugs. Dielectric grease
added to female terminals and male terminals to

the connections providing critical strain relief and
they are virtually impervious moisture barrier.
Unique to Grote’s UBS system is the locking collar
used between the main & rear sill connection. The
rear sill collar locks the main harness to the rear sill
harness to avoid vibration and wear. Another
feature is the grease fitting which allows dielectric
grease to be applied to the connection.
Exclusive locking collar prevents accidental
disconnects and provides a means of securing
the connection to the trailer
protect against moisture and contaminants
sometimes causes a hydraulic effect when the lamp
and plug are connected. This hydraulic effect can
prevent the plug from being fully seated in the
lamp, creating a potential leak path. Grease
Grooves allow the sealing compound to disperse
around the terminals with the excess sealant
escaping into the reservoir, eliminating the
hydraulic effect.
Durability
Every UBS component is designed to connect
securely and provide a strong, moisture tight seal.
Each plug is manufactured to precise tolerances
that enable the UBS system to meet or exceed
trailer industry standards.
Internal wire-to-wire connections are sonic welded
for a strong, efficient and reliable connection.
UBS plugs designed for Grote male pin lamps
use banded female terminals. Banded terminals
ensure that a solid electrical contact is created
and maintained each time a connection is made.
The bands provide a spring-like effect to the
female terminals in addition to ensuring an
excellent electrical connection. Banded terminals
are also used in UBS nosebox plugs to maintain a
secure fit.
Grote’s signature blue overmolding encapsulates
Sonic welded connections and
precision overmolding provide
strong, moisture tight seals
Proven Reliability
Certified test results show the UBS system outperformed competitive products in a tough
saltwater immersion and vibration testing
environment. Grote products went head-to-head
with the competition and had far fewer failures
than any challenger. As a complete system, the
LED’s and UBS system produced the highest pass
rate, lasting 39% longer than the closest
competitor. 100% of the Grote LED’s were
functioning at the end of the test.
UBS offers a fully integrated, modular wiring and
lighting system.
Continuous Development
Grote continues to develop the UBS system to
meet the needs of those who demand the best.
Our male pin and double seal technology is
carried over into our newest designs resulting in
a single harness system that can be used for
either incandescent or LED lighting packages.
Plugs for incandescent, or LEDs offer simpler
electrical maintenance management; fewer
SKU’s in inventory and an optimized trailer
lighting system.

Getting Started With UBS Blue PowerSets
Always make certain that you have an accurate
set of dimensions before starting to specify the
UBS components. Accuracy is required to assure
a quality installation with enough wire to reach
without strain and not so much that the excess
makes installation sloppy and prone to damage.
Take care to note any situations that might effect
the system installation such as the presence of
under-carriage sliders and lift gates for example.
Use the Grote catalog to determine the type
and quantity of lights you require. The UBS
System is a perfect complement to our tough,
long-life SuperNova® LEDs line. Always refer to
The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard
(FMVSS) 108 for regulations and requirements
governing the required number and proper
position of the lamps on the trailer.
As you start this section, it’s important to
determine the ground method you plan to use.
The recommended Plug & Go components in this
section are based upon ground return design. See
Tips and Troubleshooting section.

Using this Guide
This guide is intended to help end users pick an
electrical system that best fits their application,
while maintaining legal lighting requirements.
Before starting, review the Grote Know How
book, Basics of Electricity to get a general
understanding of current flow, proper wire
gauging and system grounding.
Use the Grote catalogs to determine the lights
and their locations required for your trailer.
Match their termination with the proper harness
and pigtail connections. Note that Grote UBS
plugs are designed to be interchangeable between
LED and incandescent lighting of the same
series. Always refer to the Federal Regulations
and requirements in this guide for proper lamp
position, quantity and color. Determine the length
of the trailer and note any other characteristics
that could effect wire installation, (examples:
sliders and lift gates).
Determine if your method for grounding will be
return ground or chassis ground. Refer to
section on grounding in installation tips section
of the Guide.
Specifying your System
Determine your type of trailer and refer to that
section of the UBS Wire Harness Design Guide.
In each case, Grote has designed optimal systems
for various types of trailers. The systems are
designed to be ground return with limited use of
pigtails.
In each design we have highlighted the required
harness to equip that particular trailer. Because of
the variety of designs and features, modification
may be necessary for some applications. Also,
end users may prefer to use different lamps or
route wires in a different manner, in which case,
we provide options. Along with the
recommended harness we offer various lengths
and plug configurations. Additional options for
rear sills, main harnesses and jumper harnesses
can be found in corresponding sections of this
guide if the recommended one will not meet the
end user’s design requirements.
Use the illustrations provided in the layouts to
see how connections are made and where.
Step One:
Determine trailer length, routing of cables and
wires and lamps and their locations. Now refer to
the section of this guide that represents your
trailer length and type.
Step Two:
Identify the harnesses needed for the “floor” of
the trailer, which would include the main or
mains and the rear sill.
Main harness: Grote offers both molded #10
ring terminals and molded push-on 0.180 female
nose box plugs for connection to the nose box or
front receptacle. Note that on a 28 foot trailer,
Grote recommends using a parallel main that
connects the front receptacle to the rear
receptacle without any interruption. For a 48 foot
to 53 foot trailer, Grote offers the option for
connection to the mid-turn lamps from the main
harness. The connection for the ABS unit is also
incorporated into the main harness.
Note: Additional main harnesses can be
found on pages 37 and 38 of this guide.
Rear sill harness: For this harness Grote has
provided two options. The first relates to the
actual installation of the harness, in that the rear
sill is offset to the roadside of the trailer or routed
down the middle. On the offset version, the
curbside leg is lengthened to route across the rear
of the trailer to the lamps. The second option
relates to the choice of lamps, which may be
female pin or male pin. The drop off of the front
of the rear sill is still the connection for the ABS
–3–

fault lamp. Lengths correspond with the style of
rear sill. However, the slim line female
connections at the end allow you to add an
extension if the length is too short.
Note: The male pin lamp plug will fit both
incandescent and LED lamps. Also, additional
information and options for rear sills can be
found on page 39.
Step Three:
Identify the harnesses needed for the front
marker lamps. The type of lamp and style will
determine your harness requirements.
Example of type: If using a single lamp on
each front corner, you will require a lamp that
is PC rated.
Front clearance harness: For this harness Grote
has provided the end user several options in both
power connections and lamp styles.
First determine the routing of the harness and the
length you will need from your power connection
to the lamp(s). Power connections offered in this
catalog are either ring terminal or slimline 0.180
male bullets that plug into provided drops on the
main harness. (Note: the ring terminals are
overmolded for protection).
For the front marker there are two lamp
connection options. The first option is a PL-10
plug that plugs directly into the lamp. The second
two options both utilize 0.180 slimline female
connections for various lamp pigtails.
Note: The flow through version accommodates
two lamps per corner, (P2 rating). Also, roadside
and curbside lengths are different to
accommodate offset nosebox receptacles.
Step Four:
As we move to the rear of the trailer, we identify
the harnesses required for the rear marker and
license lamps. Using the straight through rear sills
allows for direct connections into the system using
0.180 slim line male and female connections.
Rear marker harness: Four harness options
have been provided for this application. All
harnesses options are two feet in length and
connect to the provided drops on the rear sill.
The first three harnesses have lamp connections
that plug directly into the lamp. The fourth
harness provides the end user with the option for
a pigtail, with slim line 0.180 connections.
ABS fault lamp harness: Grote has offered two
different lengths for this harness based on rear
sill application, (center or offset).
The offered plug options are the PL-10 and the
slim line 0.180 female for pigtail application.
This harness is to be plugged into the drop from
the 7-way plug on the rear sill if the length on
the rear sill is not long enough to reach ABS
fault lamp.
Note: This harness may not be required if drop
from rear sill will reach lamp.
License lamp harness: Three harness
configurations offer accessibility for any lamp
style. The option with the slim line 0.180 females
will connect to any standard license lamp pigtail.
This harness is designed to plug into the straight
through rear sill, as are the other rear marker
lamp harnesses.
Rear identification harness, (3 lamp) For this
harness, Grote has provided numerous options
based on length and lamp design. The two
lengths shown are designed for trailers where the
identification lights are on the lower frame, (36”
dimension), and in the upper rail, (120”
dimension). The 36” length can also be used with
a jumper harness for upper rail application. Both
styles offered plug directly into the straight
through rear sill with slim line 0.180
terminations.
Three lamp options have been provided, and a
fourth option for pigtails has also been listed. The
lamp options are the Turtleback II, the Marker
lamp plug and the Thin-line LED.

you through the process of identifying your
harness system. Grote has laid out a standard
design to met legal lighting requirements. It’s

UBS Installation Tips & Shortcuts
After the proper lighting components have been
determined and the required harnesses have been
chosen, it’s time to install the Grote UBS System.
This section provides guidelines and pointers for
fast, easy installation.
If this is a retrofit, remove and discard the existing
wire harness system. Inspect the route that the
harness will take for any sharp edges, obstacles and
wear points and eliminate them or re-route the
wire.
Install the forward main harness and route the cable
from behind the fifth wheel plate forwards to the
nose box. Pull the cable to the receptacle and allow
about a foot of extra wire to help in installation.
At this time, make all connections at the nose box
area. Pay close attention to color locations and
match colors of wire to appropriate pinouts, which
are identified by color name.
TIP: If you are not replacing the nose box or
receptacle, make sure that all the terminals
are free of dirt and corrosion. Always
inspect both sides of the receptacle for
damaged or missing pins. Follow proper
maintenance guidelines and apply grease
on terminals where applicable.
When choosing connectors Grote offers both
standard and Slim-line versions. Slim-lines are
typically used under lamp connections where space
is limited. Both utilize 0.180 male and female
terminals and are overmolded in UBS blue. They
are designed with a smaller diameter and are
“squared-off” where the wire exits the body.
Standard connectors by comparison are slightly
larger in diameter and round where the wire exits
the body. Both designs are used for pigtails,
jumpers, etc. in the UBS system with the Slim-line
predominantly used with straight through rear sills
and the standard typically found on the elbow style.
TIP: Because of the similarity in size
between
standard
and
Slim-line
connectors, the question often arises as to
whether they are interchangeable. Although
they can be plugged together, Grote
recommends they not be interchanged.
Even though the Slim-line male can plug
into a standard female, the difference in
diameters can allow moisture and
contaminants to enter the connection. A
standard male can plug into the Slim-line
female and while the terminals may fit, in
time, the larger diameter of the male will
tear the female and allow moisture and
contaminants to enter the terminal area
defeating the UBS design. Using improper
connections as described will limit and/or
void the warranty.
Make certain that a generous amount of dielectric
sealant is applied to the terminal area.
TIP: All Grote UBS female plugs are pregreased at the factory.
If the installation calls for ring terminals at this
connection, use a sealable nose box to reduce the
risk of corrosion.
TIP: When wire connections are complete,
do not re-install the nose box. Leave it
loose until after the installation is complete
and the wire system has been tested.
Route the main cable towards the rear of the trailer,
either through the cross members or above them (if
applicable). When routing the cable, be sure to
route it in locations that will not allow the cable to
get pinched or cut due to moving parts or abrasion.
Also, avoid routing wire where it will be subjected
to excessive road splash and high pressure cleaning
spray. If the harness cannot be routed through cross
members and has to be routed under the members,
assure that the cable is secure with Grote weather
resistant nylon wire ties or clamps. While routing
the main harness to the rear of the trailer, take into
considerations special routing requirements such as
sliding undercarriages.
If your main harness is designed with ABS main
drops and side turn signal drops, route these cables
to the proper locations and plug them in.
Plug the rear sill and the main harness together and
route route these cables to the proper locations and
plug.
TIP: On some trailer applications the rear sill
needs to be installed in a rear pan prior to
making the connection to the main harness.

UBS Wiring Harness Handbook
Assemble the clamp (provided) to the main and
rear sill connection and then pack with grease using
the fitting on the side. This is not a “required”
installation method, but it is highly recommended.
Failure to do so could limit and/or void the
warranty.
The rear sills are designed with female receptacles
so sealed connections can be made and the need to
cut and splice wires is eliminated.
Plug the lamp harness or pigtail for your rear
marker lamps and route the cable to the rear sill.
Remove the provided dummy plug and make your
connection.
TIP: It’s important to always leave dummy
plugs in female ports not being used to
power lamps. This eliminates the risk of
moisture or dirt getting into the plug.
Follow this same approach when installing the
license lamp and the rear identification cluster.
Route the cable from the lamps to the rear sill.
Excess wire can now be secured with wire ties.
TIP: Always secure wires and cables and do
not allow them to hang loose. Snow, ice and
mud can build on wires and the extra
weight can cause accidental disconnects.
Also, don’t route wires over rear tires since
debris and blowouts could cause damage
to exposed cables.
While working at the rear of the trailer, make
connections for the stop, tail and turn lamps to the
rear sill harness. Tie and secure the wires to avoid
chafing or rubbing in the light module. Attempt to
keep the wires from resting in the bottom of the
light module.
TIP: Do not secure these lamps into the
trailer until after installation test is
complete.
Finish plugging all plugs into lamps at the rear of
the trailer and work your way forward. Connect the
side turn lamps if not done already.
When at the front of the trailer you need to route
the wires and make the connection for the front
markers. It’s recommended the wires be routed on
the inside of the trailer and protected when
possible. If not possible, route the wires in a
manner that protects them from damage from
causes such as impact with tree limbs.
If there are any additional marker lamp
connections, make them now using the same
procedures. Don’t overload circuits when
connecting extra marker lamps. Review the lamp
information (amp draw) for proper power
distribution.
Inspect the trailer once more, reviewing all plug
and lamp connections. Make sure the installation
procedure used the color-coded wires for the
correct connections and that all wires and
connections are secure. You should confirm that all
connections are properly grounded and that no
circuit (black and brown especially) has been overloaded.
Connect a proper power supply to the nose box.
Use a source such as a yard truck or a power
supply with which you can control individual
power output to the six color locations.
TIP: Make sure you have a proper ground
connection method.
Grote offers both ground return and frame ground,
but emphasizes the use of ground return. Though a
frame ground system offers less voltage drop
initially, in time improper grounding can cause
excessive voltage drop due to corrosion. A ground
return system offers a sealed, constant system.
Grote’s main and rear sills are always ground
return, with the rear sill having a redundant frame
ground.
Turn on the power to the tail and marker functions
(black and brown) and make sure all marker lamps
and tail lamps are illuminated. This would include
license lamp and side marker.
Check your stop circuit (red) and then right (green)
and left (yellow) turns. Make sure side turn signals
are performing properly.
The UBS system provides a modular solution for
retrofit or new installation of lighting and wiring
systems for trailers. The Plug and Go design offers
un-paralleled ease of installation and superior
protection against moisture and contaminants.

Since today nearly all lamp sales are in 12-volt, distributors cannot afford to
carry separate 6-volt inventories with the resultant poor turnover and
inadequate return on investment. So since only a simple bulb change is
necessary to convert a 12-volt to a 6-volt lamp, we supply you with this
quick cross-reference chart instead of selling you inventory you can't afford.
(Motorized Roto-Beacons require more than a simple bulb change, so Grote
offers separate 24-volt models in addition to 12-volt)

Trailer Wiring Data
HOW TO SELECT SIZE OF ELECTRICAL CABLE
Wire is used to carry current from the battery through the vehicle to
various electrical components: lights, instruments, etc.
In automotive use, the grounded return system is used almost
exclusively. In this system, a single wire is run from the battery
through switches to the load and the vehicle itself provides the
ground or return to the battery.
It is important to note that all electric components have a good
ground. In a combination of vehicles (tractor-trailer) it is important
that a good and adequate size ground wire be provided between the
two vehicles to carry the current.
Wire has certain resistance to current flow. The smaller the wire,
the greater the resistance.
Also, as the amount of current (amps) increases, the resistance
(ohms) increases.
For a 12-volt system there are two factors to be considered:
1) Voltage drop is the primary consideration in selecting the proper
electrical wire size. The length of wire in a circuit is the major
contributing factor to voltage drop.
2) The current carrying capacity of the wire. The heavy load in an
undersize wire may increase the temperature of the PVC
insulation above a safe level of 180° F.
The Wire Size charts shown below are provided for easy
selection of wire sizes. These charts, however, neglect losses due to
connections or switches.
To use either of these charts:
a) Determine the total wire length from the power source to the
most distant point in the circuit.
b) Determine the total electrical load on the circuit.
c) Find the load along one edge of the chart. (6v or 12v) depending on
the vehicle voltage in question, taking the next higher load if the
indicated load falls between two points on the chart.
d) Find the cable length required along the edge of the chart, taking
the next higher length (if the exact length is not cited).
e) At the intersection of the length and load column, read the
minimum size wire required for that particular circuit.

The total load is 0.69
amps x 11 = 7.59 amps.
b) Find the distance from the power source to the most distant
light. Total distance = 3 + 45 + 4 + 8 + 8 + 2 = 70 ft.
c) In the “Wire Size Chart” below, find the column with the
“Length of Wire” that matches the example. Your most distant
light is 70 ft. Next, find the row with the ampere load that
matches the example. Hint: The next highest value above 7.59
amps is 8.0 amps. At the intersection of this row and column,
you’ll find a 12 gauge wire indicated. This is the correct wire
size to use.
d) Check to see if it’s safe to use a 12-gauge wire at an ambient
temperature of 125° F. In the “Temperature Chart” below, find
the temperature column that matches the example. Your ambient
temperature is 125° F. Next, find the row with the wire gauge
that matches the example. Your wire is 12 gauge. At the
intersection of this row and column, you’ll find that the current
carrying capacity of a 12-gauge wire at 125° F is 32 amps.
That’s well in excess of your 8-amp load, so you’re okay.
