Video Transcript for etrailer Accessories and Parts ETBC7 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number ETBC7. This is a Universal Installation Kit for a trailer brake controller. This kit includes your wiring and accessories that are required for installation of a trailer brake controller. That would be sold separately and that would be one that mounts in your vehicle. This is designed for use on a vehicle with an existing four-way flat trailer connector. You can see right here, this is going to be your plug that's going to plug into the existing connection point.

Now, if your vehicle does not have a four-pole flat trailer connector installed, the etrailer.com Application Guide can be used to find the easy-to-install connector that would be made specifically for your vehicle. What I want to do with this video is just go over everything that comes with part number ETBC7. You're going to get 25-foot-long, 10-gauge duplex wire. It's going to be wrapped in an abrasion-resistant cover. All you have to do is connect one wire to the blue wire on your brake controller and then connect one wire to the positive post on the vehicle's battery via the included 40-amp circuit breaker. You can see you're going to get 3 provided circuit breakers.

Now, if you drive a crew cab, extended cab with a long bed, cargo van, or extended-length SUV, 10 foot of extra wire will make the installation much easier. You can purchase that separately with part number ETBCXW. This portion right here is going to be the Pre-Wired 7 and 4-Way Trailer Connector. It's going to mount easily at the rear of the vehicle with the included bracket and the mounting hardware. You can see right here that it has a nice spring-loaded cover that goes over the 7-Way, and then it's got a dust cap that goes over the 4-Way Trailer Connector. Nice plastic construction, very heavy-duty.

Those covers are going to come in handy, especially when it comes to keeping dirt and moisture out of the connection points, which is going to prevent corrosion. Back here, it's all molded in, so none of the connection points are going to be exposed to the elements. Then you got all the exposed wire hanging out of the back of it with the butt connectors and the ring terminal on there, as well as the 4-way connection that's going to plug into the existing connection point on your vehicle. Right here, you're going to see 3 heavy-duty circuit breakers. You're going to get 1 20-amp, 1 30-amp, and 1 40-amp circuit breaker.

3 are provided, but only 2 are going to be used, and you need to refer to your brake controller's instructions to see if it's going to require the 20-amp or 30-amp circuit breaker. This right here is going to be the included circuit tester. This is going to help you find the stoplight switch wire above the brake pedal. It's also going to include everything that you need for your installation as far as the hardware. You're going to get your ring terminals. You're going to get 4 small ring terminals and 3 large ring terminals. You're going to get your 2 quick spliced wiring connectors, 4 butt connectors. You're going to get self-tapping screws, looks like you're going to get 4 small screws and 1 large screw. The 4 small screws are going to be to mount 2 circuit breakers. So even though you see 3 are provided, you're only going to use 2 of those, and each one is going to require 2 screws. That's why the 4 small self-tapping screws are included. You're going to get 1 large one as well. You're going to get 10 zip ties. That's just going to help clean up your install look, so that you can secure your wires underneath your vehicle. You're also going to get a wire loom for a professionally installed appearance, and you're going to get some detailed instructions that etrailer put together for you. It's going to have step-by-step guides that are going to take you through the complete installation, as well as a nice, detailed illustration with the image here that's color-coded, so it's going to be able to easily point out what color wire goes where and where everything needs to be located on your particular vehicle. That's going to do it for our review of part number ETBC7. This is the Universal Installation Kit for a trailer brake controller. .

2008 Hyundai Entourage


Overall the kit is a nice package and it was great having an installation video for my vehicle which made installation much simpler than trying to figure it out with an instruction sheet. The negative issue I had with this kit was the quality of the small self tapping screws and the bolts and nuts that mount the 7-Way Trailer Connector to the hitch. I had 2 of the self tapping screws' heads snap off while attempting to mount them to the inside of the engine compartment. The two nuts used for the bolts to attach the 7-Way Trailer Connector were bad - one wouldn't screw onto the bolt and one stripped as I was tightening it. The installation videos are awesome because it is so much easier to watch the instructions rather than read them. There were a couple of issues with the installation video for the 2008 Hyundai Entourage. The first issue was the narration in regards to the installation of the circuit breakers. The narrator stated that the 20 Amp Circuit Breaker was installed on the rear firewall. He then stated to run the power wire from the 7-Way Connector to the breaker mounted on the rear firewall, which would have been the 20 Amp breaker. The 40 Amp circuit breaker is the correct circuit breaker used to connect to the power wire to the 7-Way Connector. I would recommend anyone watching the videos to just double check with the installation instructions to verify that you install the kit correctly. The other issue I had with the video was what I believed to be a bit misleading. The installation video showed the installation of a rubber grommet in the hole that is drilled out near the brake pedal. Maybe it is just me, but I had watched this video a couple of times before I ordered the ETBC7 kit and assumed that the rubber grommet would have been included in the kit, but it is not. It would have been nice if the video made a statement about purchasing the rubber grommet separately. Unfortunately, I had to stop in the middle of installing this kit to run to the auto store to purchase a rubber grommet and then to the hardware store to purchase stronger bolts, nuts, and self tapping screws. Not a huge deal, but it was an inconvenience. I did appreciate the super fast shipping and the good prices that etrailer.com has to offer. The free shipping is really nice, too. Etrailer.com, I hope that you don't think I am slamming your company, because I am not. I just wanted to give a fair and honest review for my purchase and experience with your product. 99715

2000 Chevy K3500


Re: Install on a 2000 Chevy K3500 LS Full size Pickup 4x4 This Kit and instructions are very handy and included just about everything you will need. You may need an additional 25' or so of 12g wire, per directions to run Brake Controller + Power and - Ground to battery. This info is specific to the above vehicle. Trying to even see or much less reach the brake pedal switch or wiring, and work on it, even with removing all dash panels is a no go. Per help I received from etrailer support, there is a small white wire going up the steering column in a large bundle of wiring. What I found: The Left side of bundle has the smaller gauge wire that is only hot when brake pedal is depressed. (There are 2 larger gauge white wires on right side of bundle, not them) Here's what I did: remove plastic panel below steering wheel, 4 screws at bottom edge and spring clips across middle upper part, pull out slowly and gently. Remove emergency brake handle by pushing in on plastic clips on either side. Then turn clip on cable retainer so cable can go out thru it. Remove heater hose to vent of panel by twisting, pulling down gently. Remove metal panel under center of steering wheel, 2 screws, and push heater tube out of that. Possibly remove large metal panel surrounding that - 4 screws, easy. Use included test probe to verify small white wire is cold until brake depressed. Clip ground wire to flange of metal support tube, gently push test probe tip into wire. Gently cut and peel back rubber boot and possibly a tape wrap to get good access to wire. Attach splice wire that will go to Red wire on Brake Controller. Tape splice and re wrap up the wires and boot. Put back together. 122183

2012 Jeep JK Wrangler


Worked great, easy install. I have the factory tow package w/ my 2012 JK Wrangler but it comes with a four way plug. My camping trailer doesn't exceed the 3500 lb towing capacity but it does have the 7 way plug plus I wanted to run trailer brakes. This kit has it all and the video on etrailer is the way to go. I took my laptop to the garage with me and went step by step with the video. Wiring was installed in 30 minutes and another 15 for the trailer brake controller. Everything works perfect. Here are the only two pointers I have. You might want to watch the intall video first. I was knee deep into install and the video instructions said "Now is when we run the wire from the battery back to under the dash for the brake controller, here is the wire we have left and it's not long enough, you need to order part # ........" which is extra wire. That would have been nice to know before starting. They did they same thing with a nut to ground the ground wire to the neg side of the battery. He got to that part and it said "Now is when we ground to the battery using the factory screw, you will need part # ......." which is a 2 cent nut. Why they included everything needed and didn't throw in a 1/4 nut that coust pennies I don't know but of course I was almost done and didn't have an extra nut. Everything worked out because the extra wire I had was long enough to reach under the dash and I grounded using the factory post and nut on the battery. Just beware they say to order certain parts after you have started and say you will need extra zip ties, etc... Watch the install vid first to make sure you have everything extra. Not complaining. Once again works perfect and easy easy install using the video. Don't try it with the paper intructions. I bought the Tekonsha 90195 P3 Electronic Brake Control to go along with this kit. 150532

2008 GMC Acadia


The brake was mounted as shown in my pictures. Even though my 2008 Acadia did not have the towing package, the connector is there for the brake and by using a female push to connect crimp on I was able to use the connector to get my brake signal. See the picture of the connector. The battery in my Acadia is not under the hood but behind the passenger seat in the floor and therefore is a bit more of a challenge to run the power wires to. I have attached a picture of the battery bay and how I mounted the circuit breakers. I'm not sure how it is going to be to get this battery out when the time comes but I will leave that for another day. The only negative thing I would have to say about this is that there wasn't enough of the 10 gauge wire for my install. I was about 2 feet short and had to grab some from my work. 10261

2007 Dodge Nitro


I previously purchased and installed the model 75517 Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" AND the model 118421 T-One Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and installed them on my 2007 Dodge Nitro. I then decided that since I had went this far with towing capabilities I might as well install a Trailer Brake Controler which required a 7-Pole Trailer Connector. This ETBC7 kit seemed like the right way to go, so that's what I did and it worked out perfect. 122721

Toyota FJ Cruiser


Kit arrived on time and just in time for the weekend. Unfortunately giving me some work to do. I usually don't work on my cars, but felt this one was fairly simple. I already had a 4 pin setup on my FJ Cruiser and this kit was recommended by Etrailer. Installation took a few hours (Including brake controller, Tekonsha P2). I did not hurry, helped the wife with some things, triple checked my work the whole way through and had a few cold ones to battle the SoCal heat. In the end, everything worked as expected. I saved $450.00 by doing it myself and not having Ca**ingw*rld do it for me. A few things about the FJ Cruiser 2014 model with tow package (4 pin connector for lights) OEM Hitch And indeed the cold side of the brake pedal switch was Green/Yellow. The tester that came with the package helped me find this quickly. Don't go by what I wrote, satisfy yourself by verifying it, it was very simple to do. My only concern through the whole process was routing the cable from the back up into the engine compartment. Just use logic as you are routing it and also make sure to properly secure the cable so that it does not become dislodge. Mr. Zip Tie came in handy and I bought some more in addition to what came with the package as I figure if one zip tie is good, 20 more zip ties must be great. Overall I was very pleased, saved $450.00, learned something new and have a 7 pin/4 pin connector for my travel trailer 154839

2009 Hyundai Santa Fe


Somewhat difficult to install this product without vehicle-specific instructions. I installed this on a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe and had a difficult time finding an opening in the firewall to route the cables/wires. This problem could have been mitigated with a few helpful suggestions up front. Also, mounting the breakers is difficult due to a lack of room in the engine compartment. I did resolve all of these problems, but it took the better part of 7 hours. Regardless of the problems, all of the parts were of high quality and the final installation looks good. 7196

2003 Nissan Pathfinder


Installed this on a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder SE, with a factory receiver and 4 pin connector already in place. I've never done something like this before, so it took me a while - the better part of a day to be exact. The Pathy's factory 4 pin is on the driver's side, but the battery in the engine compartment is on the passenger side, in the front of the engine bay... the duplex cable supplied was long enough to make the initial brake connection inside the cab, and to the battery, but I did not have enough wire left to run the power lead from the battery to the brake controller. Also, because this was my first time doing this kind of install, I messed up a few of the connectors - the kit only has enough to make all the connections once - don't mess up, or you'll be short. I have to say though that everything supplied seemed of very high quality - I especially liked the 10 ga. duplex wire and the combo 4/7 pin box; very nice. I watched the video's of several different installs and I have to say they were super for confidence building - it really was pretty easy in hindsight, just very futzy-putzy for a 1st time installer. Can't wait now to pick up our new tent trailer next month! Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase - just wish I didn't have to make a 'parts run' in the middle of the install. 9415

2008 Mazda 5


Great product. Tips for Mazda 5 Owners. I own a 2008. The toughest part of the install was tapping the brake wire. Finding a way through the firewall was a challenge as well. Here are my recommendations. Brake Wire: You have a quick splice in the connector in the kit that is intended to splice the wire from the brake switch. The catch, unless you are a tiny person, this is a very hard place to get into as its tucked in above the brake pedal. The easy way, remove the door sill pannel (held in with clips) and then the trim pannel on the left of the footwell (held with a gromet). Once off you'll see a wire harness with a bunch of wires coming out. You want to splice the Yellow/Green wire. Lastly the quick splice connector in the kit is the incorrect gauge for these wires. So you either want to pre-strip the wire or find a suitable gauge one. Cable routing: You could go under the vehicle or event easier, remove the frond and back doorsills (clipped in) and you find a very easy to route trough cable through. Engine bay access: Looking in the engine compartment, bellow and to the left of the steering pump, you'll find a white X shaped plug. Twist and remove and this will give you an access right next to you gas peddle. Once I figured out all these things the install went like a charm. 78097

2001 Toyota Tundra


I ordered this wiring harness to install in my 2001 Toyota Tundra to go along with Prodigy P2 brake controller. I'm absolutely satisfied with the harness and how easy it made it to wire my truck so I could tow my new trailer. The kit comes with everything needed to do a professional job, and without too much effort. One thing I wish the kit came with was the rubber grommet used to protect the wires once you drill through the fire wall and a small tube of Di-electric grease. I had to run to the hardware store to purchase those items, but other than that I think I made a great purchase. The install was pretty straight forward, as I referenced the brake controller installation video several times. Without the video, it may have taken longer. I think it took me around 4 hours to install. And that's being very methodical in running the wires from the rear bumper to the engine compartment. Great job on the video guys. Without this kit I would have taken my truck in and paid someone else to do the install, so etrailer saved me about $70 in installation costs. If you're in need of a 7 pole RV harness to install a brake controller and only have a 4 pole flat on your rig, and feel comfortable completing the install yourself, this kit will do the job. Thanks etrailer. 82058

2005 Lincoln Navigator


Used to install in my 2005 Lincoln Navigator. This kit helped out a lot. I would have given it 5 stars, but had to make several mods in order for it to work! First mod was to the 4 way plug, it did not fit my factor 4way plug. So u will either have to splice the wires or cut the rubber seal from around the prongs to plug it in. Next the mounting bracket will not work on the 05/06 Navigator. You will have to cut the top mounting part off,so that it is just a flat square. The next thing is there is not enough zip ties, you will need at least 10 more. I did not use the fuses either, went with a inline standard fuse holder (30amp). When all is said and done. The wire and connectors really came in handy and the product is install. Hope the picture below will help others out because, I couldn't find any info on where to mount the 7-way. But found a creative location that still has somewhat of a factory look! 38028

2005 Ford Expedition


The product was exactly as it is advertized. No complaints. The only issue I had was the rubber boot on the 4 way connector that goes to the existing four way on the vehicle. My 4 way connector on the truck (2005 Ford Expedition) had a rubber boot on it as well and did not fit directly. I spoke to the sales rep Tamra regarding this and she directed me to a video showing the installation on a Ford Van. The video showed the adapter with the rubber boot sliding into the rubber boot on the Van side. Unfortunately on the Expedition, it did not fit and I had to cut the rubber boot off of the adapter to make it fit. Was not a big deal, but I would caution buyers that the boot will have to be cut on the adapter for the 2005 Ford Expedition's. It may be the same for other years and other models I am not sure. I did read about other customers who had to do similar things on different vehicles. All in All I was very pleased with the shipping time and quality. I was also very impressed with the customer service. They were very patient and understanding my questions about the product. Will do business again and recommend to others. 38095

2007 Nissan Pathfinder


JUST BUY THIS KIT ALREADY!! Read on.... This kit had almost everything I needed for my (new to me) 2007 Dodge Durango without the 'tow package' and I pull the heck out of a single axle '07 Fleetwood Williamsburg Tent Trailer. My aim was to have this turn out to be a professional install. The only items I needed (that the kit did not have) was a seven foot length of heavy wire required to run the ground from the brake controller (probably could have just grounded it the chassis under the dash but the paper instructions show the ground going to the battery) and an 18" length of smaller gauge wire to go from the red brake controller wire to the brake light switch wire. When the job was done everything tested perfect at the connector and It took me about 4.5 hours since I like things to look pretty everywhere. The price for everything you get in this awesome kit is well worth not having to run around and guess what you will need at Home Depot and the RV Supply store! Just buy it. I purchased the Curt Venturer Brake Controller with this kit. Thank you etrailer! 123838

Nissan Xterra


Thanks for putting together such an excellent product and system. This is the first brake control I have installed, the Prodigy P2, and the ETBC7 installation kit. Went great, looks good and works well. Watching the video of an installation on an Xterra made my installation on a Pathfinder go even smoother. Many thanks. 136283

Still working great. So easy to adjust. I am also using the prodigy on my 2500 dodge ram which was already wired for a brake controller. Taking the whole rig to the mountains this weekend and I feel safe and confident.

2013 Chevy


Great kit! I Had exactly enough of the two wire harness to complete the job on my 2013 Chevy Express. I already had the T-One 4 wire harness installed which plugged into the 7 wire receptacle nicely. I purchased addition harness conduit to cover wiring under hood and dashboard to make a clean and factory look. The local parts store had side post battery bolts with threaded attachments for the power and ground leads. The only difficult part was locating a suitable brake switch signal feed. I ended up using the aux. stop light fuse in the under hood fuse box. Well worth the money spent! 144528

2006 Honda Pilot


Installed on a 2006 Honda Pilot. Excellent kit that makes up for Honda's inability to properly set up a vehicle for towing a trailer with electric brakes. The hardest part of the process is fishing the wire through Honda's convoluted system of interior panels. I wish the mounting bracket was just slightly longer and bit more sturdy, but overall a great kit. p.s. THESE GUYS SHIP FAST!!!! 56143

2001 Ford Ranger


Ordered this for my 03 Tacoma after purchasing a rigid pop-up camper. My truck has the towing package and came pre-wired but it was only a 4 pole connector. My camper is a 7-pole flat of course. I could not find a factory harness that would utilize my truck factory connectors so I bought this harness to see if it would work. I know the instructions say it can be hooked-up a short amount of time and it's sooooo easy but I don't have a lift and a whole lot of tools. I read the instructions before I started (ya right), took my time and all went well. If I was still a young man and could crawl in and out from under my truck it would have probably taken a LOT less time, it takes me a while to get up and down anymore so I lost a lot of time doing just that, getting up and down. I probably took and hour or so doing it but as I said, that's not the harness' fault, that's my fault. Harness was easy to install and it works great. 231278

2008 Dodge Ram


Great Product that is EASY For everything you get in this kit, its a great deal. All the connectors, wire, zip-ties and the parts to complete this job are here. The 7-pin connector replaced the blank in the bumber area for an exact fit on my 08 dodge ram. Everybody loves the 4-pin with the 7-pin. It is out of the elements of weather and you don't have to get dirty to find the dangling 4-pin behind the bumber somewhere. Resettable fuses for trailor power and brake controller. I took all of my connections and wrapped them up with a whole roll of electrical tape(not supplied) behind the bumper so there would be no water getting into the connections. The hardest thing is acually running the wire under your vehicle. I kept my wire with the stock harness as much as possible, and it kept everything out of the way and neat. Would reccomend this kit to anybody that needs a 7-pin with only a 4-pin on their vehicle. 2038

2008 Honda Pilot


The kit is very complete. You need some electrical tape, tools, the 4-pin wiring needs to be in place, and you need a brake controller, but the kit is very complete. I kept looking in the bag when I needed something and it was always there. Make sure you buy the quick connect bracket that suits your installation and lets you mount the assembly to the hitch without drilling. With a little fuss and bother I installed the controller under the tray in my 2008 Pilot console. There is a slotin the back to fish the wires through and everything tucks out of the way perfectly. The bracket screws to the bottom of the hard plastic tray and I stow the controller in the glovebox when not in use. See the picture. 46105

I used this kit along with the No-Drill Mounting Bracket on my 2011 Ford Ranger. It contained everything needed and all the parts seemed to be of good quality. The little test light was a nice addition to the kit and to me showed how well this kit is thought out. The instructions were clear and the video is a nice help as well. Between the two you can't go wrong. Finally a complete kit that I didn't have to make a trip to the hardware store halfway through the job! Would recommend this to anyone. Thanks etrailer! 119975

1999 GMC Suburban


I have never done any automotive wiring before. I bought a 1999 GMC Suburban and it had a 4 way plug on it. I ordered this kit and used your on line install video to wire the 7 way plug to the vehicle and it works great. Your install video is excellent. The kit includes everything needed and then some with a tester that is very helpful. I hooked up my travel trailer and everything works great. I look forward to trouble free traveling thanks to your quality product, help, and service. Thank you! 106876

2014 Nissan Murano


Great product... Works as advertised and install was easy using the video except for one thing...... The firewall grommet location is different than in the video in the 2014 Murano and access is next to impossible. After a considerable amount of time trying to figure out how to get the wiring through the firewall I came up with a solution that worked well. I took a pointed serrated steak knife and attached it with electrical tape to a couple of socket extensions so the whole thing was about two feet long. I poked through the grommet with the knife at the far edge, away from the factory wiring. It cut through through grommet like butter. With the knife still in the grommet I slid a straightened out metal coat hanger along the knife and into the passenger compartment. I then used the coat hanger as a pull wire to get the wires though the firewall. 175443

2010 Subaru Forester


Installing onto 2010 Subaru Forester... Overall the kit seems reasonable; it includes all the parts necessary to wire up the brake controller. A few minor gripes: 1. For my vehicle the wires on the jack are too short -- well, some of them. The purple reverse light wire and the chassis ground wire are a perfect length, but the brake wire, aux 12v wire and the 4 pole plugs are all on the shorter side. On my subaru I was able to make most of my splices inside the vehicle's spare tire well, but just barely. 2. The butt-splice connectors were crimped onto the brake wire and aux 12v wire incorrectly. They were crimped on so far that there was no room to get a good solid crimp and connection to the 10ga wires running from the front of the vehicle. I ended up cutting them off and doing a soldered butt-splice with heat shrink wrap. 20860

I have ordered and installed two of these kits on my Toyota Tundra pickups. I like that the kit provides all the required parts to do the job. I wish the mounting bracket were a little more heavy-duty, thus: 4 stars. 156823

2008 Toyota Sienna


This kit was advertised to fit the Toyota Sienna. I watched the video for a 2005 installation and ordered the kit. Over all every thing you need is included and the wiring instructions are accurate. Unfortunately, either my 2008 Sienna is longer than the 2005 (nope...)or I got a short shot on the wire as I did not have enough and had to purchase additional 10 gauge wire to finish the installation. That said, the sheathed wires from front to back are a great time saver. They are also safer with the protection from rubbing. The seven pin plug seems "cheap" , but time will tell if it will holdup. It is great to have a package ready to install. Price seems fair, but a couple of extra of each of the wire connectors would add a sense a relief if a mistake is made. 188413

Hyundai Tucson


Fantastic product and great customer service. This is my first time attempting something like this as I am a painter not an electrician. Products arrived on time and a confirmation email also arrived the same day. There was not a install video for my Hyundai Tucson but there was for the Santa Fe. I took a gamble that the 2 vehicles would be similar and I was right. I watched the install video several times before I put my car on jack stands. This boosted my confidence immensely and I that E trailer for that. Laptop next to the car, tools all gathered it was time to delve in. Taking my time and watching the video while doing each and every step, it took just under 4 hours to complete the installation. Doing it myself saved me $600 that I can now put into my vacation. 214606

2012 Jeep Rubicon


I purchased this installation kit for my 2012 Rubicon. Installation was a breeze. I am 6' 3"; so I removed the driver's door to work under the dash. The installation guide and videos from etrailer.com were extremely helpful. Routing through the frame was very simple; as all Jeeps have a tube style frame. From start to finish in less than 2 hours with hand tools. If you can crimp a wire, and run a drill- You can do this! 80930

I, hope you can help me out, i have the 7 way wire harness from mopar, but i dont know where the blue wire need connect to, in the electronic brake control, in m 2010 sahara, there are four wire in the brake pedal, white, black, red and blue, but my question is, the blue wire from the wire harness, go blue to blue. ?????????Thank You for you help.

If you have a factory installed 7-way and a brake controller prep wiring package already in your 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sahara then yes, the blue wire that is on the brake controller connects to the brake signal wire (usually blue) on the Jeep. You can use a circuit tester like the # 40376
Circuit Tester Kit
$48.95
to make sure that the blue wire on the Jeep has signal when the brake pedal is depressed. If you do not have a factory installed 7-way on your Jeep, then you will need to use an # ETBC7 kit.l This will establish a fully functional 7-way wiring harness and has all the wiring components and functions needed for installing a brake controller. I have included links to a couple of our help articles that explain this process step by step for you.

2008 Dodge Grand Caravan


This was a great package. It was my first electric brake controller wiring project. We ordered a travel trailer and I was upgrading our 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan to accommodate it. The instruction videos were clear and easy to follow. It might have been me, but only wish it would have been clear that, in order to connect the outlet to the hitch you'd need another bracket, so I could have included it in my free-freight order, but I just connected it to the bumper brace and then someday I can move it. (I don't want to pay the freight just for the one bracket). 99948

1999 Chevy Suburban


I think this product was exactly what I needed, and it came with almost all the items needed to install it correctly. The only thing I would have changed would be to have included a grommet to go through the firewall, probably a $.20 item. I had to make a special trip to the hardware store and I would bet that most customers do not have a grommet of this size at home. I bought this kit because of the video on your website, which was extremely helpful and an exact match to my 1999 GMC Suburban. It also would have been nice to know which of the 3 included breakers (20, 30, and 40 amp) was the one to use, which the video did not tell. Minor items, but would be helpful. Thank you for filling a need with a great product at a reasonable price. 146319

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac


This kit was awesome everthing that is needed is there for the installation of the brake controller. I installed a Prodigy 3 brake controller and is working great. The only complaint I have is that I installed this on my 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac and the wire was a little short. I was able to reach the wire to the fuses 40A and 20A but there was not enough wire for one of the fuses, but there was not enough wire to connect from the fuses to the positive of the battery. Maybe add one more foot to the wire and it would be great. Other than that no issues the tie wraps and everything on this kit seems like a very good quality parts. When I was done with the installation it looks like a professional installation. 264455

Perfect- 2001 Toyota Sequoia It was a breeze to install. Great product. The one difficult thing was making sure I soldered the correct wire to the brake pedal switch. I used a hertz reader to find out the solder joint (where wire connection was on the brake pedal switch) that was providing the power and did the quick solder connection. Perfect. 2904

I have a Toyota sequoia 2002. It has already a 4 prongs flat connector wt a female hitch. I would like to tow a light travel trailer but I need a electric brake hook up to it. My car does not come pre wired under my dashboard.i I were to buy the whole kit would it take everything I need?

If you have a functioning 4 pole connector, all you need to add the complete braking system will be your brake controller of choice and an ETBC7 kit. This will provide everything you need to wire up the brake controller and the 7-Way connector at the rear of your Sequoia. I have linked to a video that shows the install of an ETBC7 and Prodigy P2 controller on a 2002 Tundra. The installation should be very similar on your Sequoia.

Having a 2011 Tacoma and trying to hook up a 7 pin trailer plug seemed to be impossible until I found etrailer.com . I try to keep add on all oem parts but Toyota doesn't offer any plug and play harness for this application . After looking at a lot of video's on the computer I found that etrailer .com had all the (HOW TO DO) video's to hook up the 7 pin plug with a brake controller. This was just what I needed. They also have everything to do the job and do it the right way!

1998 Nissan Pathfinder


This is my first experience with installing and/or using an electric brake controller so I'm by no means an expert. However, the Curt Venturer was easy to order and etrailer.com noted other parts I would need to complete the installation and use the product. It was delivered in a timely manner and was exactly as specified. I had my mechanic do the installation on my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder and it took him a couple of hours because of the age of the vehicle. The controller is easy and intuitive to set up and use and it works well. I will keep etrailer.com on my list of go-to places for my towing needs. 143220

2002 Toyota Tundra


Installed on my 2002 Tundra (no factory towing package). Used aftermarket 4-pole I had already put on vehicle. Quality materials, only missing a grommet for the firewall penetration and a ring terminal for a ground connection. Installation videos really helped and were pretty comprehensive; helped narrow down which wire to splice into at the brake switch easily. Will be used with a 14' two-axle utility trailer. P2 installed at same time. Will have to wait until pulling fully loaded trailer for final verdict, but was straight-forward installation. 58589

2013 Kia Sorento


Installation of this product went very well. I did my homework ahead of time and I think that made all the difference. It would be better if they had more detailed instructions for all vehicles but even though there was little for me to refer to for my 2013 Kia Sorento everything fell into place. Parts appear to be of top quality and everything worked as it should have when I finally finished. It took a little over four hours for the install but a lot of that time was spent routing the wires and deciding on just where to attach the fuses. 77148

Not enough wire for a 2010 Subaru Forester and Tekonsha P3 brake controller. You'll need another 10ft of 10ga primary wire. I didn't have enough to run the power source for the brake controller. I also need to get another battery terminal connector as the kit only included 2 and 3 are needed (2 for 12v+ connections to the battery (brake controller, 12v aux power, and another for 12v- connection to brake controller). Overall the kit is a good starting point an the instructions make enough sense to get you going. 20951

This kit was fantastic, and made the wiring of my 2000 Xterra a straight forward operation. And when I was done, it all worked like a dream. DO order the extra length of wire, as you will need it if you do an Xterra/Pathfinder/Frontier. And this wire is more supple than the same gauge stranded from Lowes/Home Depot, and is no more expensive. The videos were extremely helpful and answered a couple of questions that I did not know I would have until I was installing. Great set. Quick delivery and complete. 215897

Knowledgeable phone contact people. Pleasant to talk to. Quick shipping. Only complaint I have on this product is that there was not quite enough of the 10 ga. duplex wire. On my 1994 Chevy Silverado extended cab with the battery on the RH side, I came up short on the black wire to run from the brake controller power to the Battery + terminal. Either add about 5 feet to this kit or add two pieces of 14 ga. wire for the controller Power and ground wire to the battery. Comprehensive kit, otherwise. 99541

I followed the install video to a tee, and only had trouble with one of the breaker taps breaking off as I was screwing it in (tie wrapped it together) and nicked a metal house as I drilled too far through the firewall. Luckily it didn't puncture completely, as that could've been disastrous. Butt connectors were pretty tough to get a good crimped hold as well. 205978

The connector is usually light blue in color. If the plug is present, you'd need the # HM47755 brake controller wiring to install the Hopkins Agility brake controller in your Ram. If your Ram was not equipped with the trailer connector, the...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 With 4-Way Wiring Harness
  • On my 2004 Dodge Ram (which would be the same as your 2003) the factory trailer connector plug split off from a larger wiring harness on the inboard side of the drivers side frame rail near the rear bumper. There should be a rectangular connector that matches the black connector from the Hopkins Endurance 7-Way Trailer Connector, # HM42190. It may be possible that your truck did not come with the factory trailer wiring for a 7-way trailer connector. That was an option on those trucks from...

  • Where Is Brake Controller Port Located On 2001 Dodge Durango For Installation Of Adapter, # 3020-P
  • If your 2001 Dodge Durango has the factory installed 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper, the port for the brake controller should be located near the emergency brake pedal. I am sending a video link of a brake controller installation on a 2003 Dodge Dakota and at the 45 second mark it shows the location of the brake controller port under the dash that should help you locate the port on your vehicle. You can check the port with a circuit tester to see if one of the pins supplies...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • The factory installed brake controller connector should be a white plug located on the left side under the drivers side dash on your 2005 Toyota Tundra Dual Cab. I have included a photo and a video that shows the location of the plug on another Toyota Tundra at the 8 second mark. This plug may not be there if your vehicle did not come with the factory tow package. The Multi-Plug, # 20137, is designed as a replacement if your vehicle came with a factory tow package that included the...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2008 Chevy Express Van 3500
  • If your 2008 Chevy Express Van were already set up for trailer lights and a brake controller, it would have a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector at the rear of the vehicle or a wiring harness located inside the driver side frame rail near the rear of the vehicle. Look for a round plug with a cap. If you find this plug, you will need part # 30955. Scroll down on the product page to see what the plug on the vehicle will look like. If you cannot find this plug on your vehicle, it...

  • How to Determine Towing Capacity 2003 GMC Envoy 4-Wheel Drive with 6 Cylinder 4.3L Engine
  • According to the research I conducted, there were 4 different models of the 2003 GMC Envoy with 4-wheel drive. Both the SLE and SLT have a towing capacity of 5,200 pounds, 6,200 with weight distribution. The XL SLE and XL SLT models have a towing capacity of 4,800 pounds, 7,000 pounds when using weight distribution. All of the models seem to be rather capable vehicles. You should also be able to find the towing capacities of your specific vehicle in the owners manual. I have included...

  • Location of Brake Controller Connector on 2010 Dodge Ram
  • The brake controller installation on a 2010 Dodge Ram would be pretty much identical to that as the 2009 model shown in the video. The installation port is located under the dash midway between the emergency brake and the brake pedal, just above where your left knee would be as you are sitting behind the wheel. The connector is either white or light blue in color. If you need the wiring adapter that connects the brake controller to the under-dash connector, we offer it. The part # is 3021-P...

  • Wiring a Brake Controller on a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 LS
  • Yes, you will be able to install the Draw-Tite Activator II Brake Controller, item # 5500, on your 1995 Chevrolet 2500 Silverado LS. You will not need the Universal Brake Control Wiring Adapter 1999-02 Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, item # 3025-S, on the 1995 model because there is no factory port under the dash to plug the adapter in to. Chevrolet did not start putting the brake controller wiring port under the dash until 1999 so you will need to hard wire the brake controller on your 1995...

You will find the connector at the rear of the vehicle near the drivers side frame rail above the spare tire.

  • Installing Trailer Brake Controller and 7-way Trailer Wiring Harness on 1997 Chevy Silverado
  • To prepare your Silverado for towing, you will need a brake controller, the install kit # ETBC7, and the T-1 connector, part # 118315 to tap into the truck lighting circuits. Although we offer many different brake controllers, I would recommend a proportional-type controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. A proportional controller has an internal sensor that can detect how quickly and at what intensity the tow vehicle is braking, and will then send the appropriate amount...

  • I have everything you need to install a 7-way trailer connector on your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited without the factory tow package, however, the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Connector, # HM42190, will not fit because it was designed for vehicles with a factory tow package.
