Video Transcript for Trailer Brake Controller Installation Wiring Kit Review

Today we will show you part number ETBC7 brake controller installation kit. What this kit does is it fills in the blanks between your 4 pole connector and the brake controller. Basically on the instructions of your brake controller, it will show you a link between the foot brake and stop light switch, a battery, and then a line going out to the connector out back. This kit here fills in those missing pieces. We will cover each individual part. First we will start from the rear of the vehicle and work our way forward. This part here is 7 and 4 pole to 4 pole adapter. This will plug into your existing 4 pole that you have on your vehicle. It just plugs in like normal while this white wire gets grounded to the body of the vehicle. You will have a couple extra wires. The black wire will be ran to the battery. This blue wire here gets run to the blue wire on the brake controller.

Finally, we have this purple wire which gets run to the reverse lights. If you do not need this wire or the black wire you still have to connect the blue wire for brakes. On the 7 and 4 pole adapter it comes with this bracket right here that mounts to the bottom of your bumper or wherever you are going to mount it underneath your vehicle. It comes with 2 sets of screws. These small screws will attach it to the bumper or support bracket, whatever you use. Then these screws here will hold the connector in place to the bracket. This gray cable here has 2 conductors in it, one is going to be white and one is going to be black. What happens is, this wire is going to get split back and gets connected to the 2 wires on the 4 pole to 7 and 4 pole adapter. What happens basically is you are going to take your blue and black wire and run the black wire to the other black wire. However, you will take the white wire and run it to the blue wire.

This loom will cover up the wiring from the back end to the beginning of the wire up front. Next step is to run this cable back up to your battery. This will provide power for the black wire for a 12 volt power supply going out back. The reason you want to go to the battery first is because you are always going to have some left over. Approximately 5 to 6 foot and you would have excess wire that you will cut off and run it between your brake controller and battery. So you will have 1 black wire running to your battery and the other black wire will be ran to the brake controller. So you will have 2 connections coming off of your battery. After you have already ran to the battery for your hot lead you are coming back. The wire running to the battery and brake controller will need a circuit breaker. Depending on your brake controller it is going to be a 20 amp or 30 amp. That is why we supply 3 because different brake controllers use different amps. This 40 amp you will also want to install between the battery and 12 volt power supply going out back. So it is a pretty good idea to install these side by side. There will always be one left over. To make all these connections to the circuit breaker and wiring to the battery. The kit comes with all the ring terminals to make the connections. These 2 biggest ones will be going towards your battery. The 4 smaller ones will be making the connections to your circuit breakers. We also have butt connectors to make the connections between 2 wires from the brake controller and harness. Finally it comes with 10 zip ties to help secure any excess wires to the frame components and any other stationary objects.

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

This item made installation of the Prodigy 2 brake controller to my Toyota FJ Cruiser a snap. The only controllers I've ever installed that were easier were on trucks that already had been prewired from the factory for a brake controller. Do yourself a favor and order the wiring kit when you buy your controller, you'll be glad you did. Thanks. 20121

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

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

Brake controller installation It took longer that it should have to connect the controller, but I was being very careful, I would check and then double check to make sure everything was alright. I wanted to do a nice clean job so I took my time. The hardest part was making sure I had the right wire connected for the brake signal to the controller, but even that was not difficult to do. I took some pictures of when I started a task and the end result. 4921

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

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

product was excellent and COMPLETE. everything you need with very DETAILED directions. i also ordered the prodigy P2 to complete my install. both were excellent and very recommended. only modification was on the actual plastic cover on bumper, i cut away minimal pieces with razor knife for perfect fit. you can look at all the pics to check out install. I took advantage of the reverse light wire and put LED light bar on back of trailer. i made one email to e trailer for exact numbers for my make and model. the response was pretty impressive. Full detail with pictures and product numbers all set up so all i had to do was press order and pay for it. This is how american companies are supposed to be ran......I LOVE IT!!!! 117533

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

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

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

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

Good, but needs instructions I've installed one of these before several years ago and just bought another for my new vehicle. There were no instructions with the kit and I was especially concerned about the three circuit breakers, all different sizes and no information about which one to use where or which end of the breakers is for the hot lead. Luckily, I had my old vehicle to use as a pattern but I hope eTrailer will do better in the future.1870

Excellent Product. Everything that was needed for installation on my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Extended cab was included. I am a novice at automotive wiring, but found the instructions and videos easy to follow and helpful. On a difficulty scale from 1-10 this would be an 8 for my skill level. I have purchased products from etrailer in the past and will definitely do so in the future. Thanks for the great service and products.29890

Nice hardware, inadequate instructions The hardware package is good and includes everything needed except adequate instructions. The etrailer web site has instructions, but it is time consuming to find them, especially a schematic. The installation videos are fine, but a simple schematic is much more helpful yet harder to find.3686

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.

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

The ETBC7 is a comprehensive kit made from mostly high-quality items. Installation was straightforward and works quite well. Three things prevented me from rating this higher: 1) the printed instructions were not as readable as they could be; the connector pin illustrations are partially printed in reverse (white on black) and difficult to see under limited lighting, 2) the plastic "loom" provided to cover individual wires is not of the same level quality as other components (I replaced it with plastic spiral loom), and 3) the provide circuit breakers have non-insulated connectors that expose +12 Vdc direct from the battery (I used shirk tubing to insulate these and protect myself).120996

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

Product was exactly as advertised. I was able to follow the online video and installed it myself without a single issue. I can now pull my travel trailer with my Jeep knowing that I have additional braking power behind me. Great product, great service, fast shipping and unparalleled experience from beginning to end.

Etrailer has an unbelievably helpful website too! I don't think I've ever seen so many tutorials and pages on installations on any other site. Very pleased I made my purchase through Etrailer.29247

No problems, good kit. This is a good kit. Watching the videos here helped me be ready to install it on a 2005 Pilot. The hardest part was finding a good place to mount the breakers and run the cable. The 7-way socket is high quality, and includes a 4-way connector. I continue to be impressed with etrailer.com after a number of years' worth of orders here and there.3348

Did you need a adapter7-way round to 7-way RV to tow your pop up?

The ETBC7 kit uses a 7-Way Blade Pin, the most commonly used 7-Way in recreational towing. If your trailer 7-Way looks like part A7WCB, then the ETBC7 kit will compatible. If it does not look like A7WCB, take a photo of it and send it to me and we will figure what you have and what you need. If the pop-up has electric brakes, then in addition to the ETBC7, you will also need a brake controller to operate them.

Well put together item Excellent Quality. Wires were all long enough, Connector was water tight. Only thing I'd reccomend would be a t-tap quick snap connector for the brake pedal wire (to avoid cutting a small factory wire).136

The kit includes everything you need and the step-by-step written instructions, as well as the wiring diagram are excellent. I couldn't find a video specific to my vehicle, but it didn't matter. The most difficult install step is finding a place to go through the firewall and finding the correct brake wire. Very happy with the product.125549

I followed the instructions in the videos and everything came together great. Be prepared to take a little longer than what is shown in the videos, but that should be expected. A second set of hands during the installation will help things more along much faster than working alone. (i.e. snaking the cable through the frame goes much slower with only one person compared to what it would have taken if I had had some assistance.)124232

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

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

Excellent! This kit had all the parts (and a few more) needed to completely install my new brake controller.

Universal Installation Kit for trailer braker controller and Tekonsha Prodigy P3 trailer braker contoller. Really nice! When you wire up the system and can't really test it and then drive a long distance without knowing if it will work or not when you pick up your new camper and it works perfectly! Sweeet! Being a degreed electronics engineer, I thought it strange in the instructions to run a seperate wire from each fuse to the + side of the battery when the fuses are mounted next to each other. So I connected the fuses together and ran one wire to the 12v side of the battery. Works fine...103695

Well lets just say that 15 minute install video does not relay the reality of the true install time. I worked from 9am until 7:30 pm and had to quit for the night. Unbelievably the hardest park was trying to locate and get to the brake peddle switch under my dash. In the instruction the video the guy just magically located the correct wire which was conveniently located. Not the real case. This morning I have to make all the power connections and try to find the correct brake wire. Hopefully it won't take all day. Other than that, the kit has installed very well.101733

I love Land Rovers. So much so that I put up with the nuances and problematic issues I run into when it comes to add-ons and 3rd party options. Thank Heavens for eTrailer and their extensive experience with Land Rovers. I needed an ebrake controller that was compatible with my Discovery II. I was estatic to find out that eTrailer does so much business with Land Rover as well as other manufactures, that they actually make a wiring harness kit specifically for my make and model. For once, a company that gives a @&$! Thanks Patrick, you rock!99880


Comments

You give us too much credit. The story of the ETBC7 is much simpler than that. Many moons ago, when we were a small local shop, our installers got quite good at adding brake controllers. Over time they developed a kit and when a brake controller install was on the schedule, they knew exactly what they would need, regardless of the make or model. So we bundled together what ours installers have always used and created the ETBC76 kits.

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

It is very good product. The only reason I did not rate it excellent is that few minor thinks can make it that way. First, few more ties would be good to include, they are inexpensive. Second the duplex cable has a black line and white line, however it is connected to a black and BLUE line out of the receptacle and out of the brake controller. So it would be very nice that the duplex cable has black and blue line. Also, two self-threading screws should be included for the bracket installation (in the case, like in mine) when the attaching member is part of the bumper without access to its back side, there is no way to put a nut on the attaching screw. Finally, the instruction is very good with one exception. It is cumbersome and (I think) not necessary to route the ground wire from the brake controller to the battery negative terminal. It can be just grounded to the chassis. 98743

Great product with good instructions. If I really want to be picky there is room for some improvement. The bracket is a bit flimsy. You must hold the back of the socket when plugging in the connector or it will flex and bend. The videos were very helpful but not 100% accurate for my application. I had to bolt the bracket to the factory bracket and the holes were off approximately 3/16". Slots in place of the mounting holes with a bit more bracket width might allow various applications without modification. The instructions were not very clear on whether to use the 20 amp or 30 amp circuit breaker. Overall -- great value.88769

All necessary parts are included to connect virtually any electronic brake controller (not included) to the 7-pin female electrical receptacle (included). The installation videos on the website were a HUGE help, and made installation clear cut. The only complaint I have is that the long, 10 gauge duplex cable provided was about 6' too short for the route I chose to run it...especially since you are supposed to use excess pieces to run power and ground to the controller. I had to go to the hardware store to buy the additional lengths needed. Even though eTrailer did not have this in inventory, which they quickly informed me of, and the potential for a delayed delivery...they quickly got it in stock, and I received my order in 7 days. This kit is the best I could find, and not available on Amazon. I am very pleased with eTrailer's customer service, their prices, and the information they provide to ensure you get the job done right!82068

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

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

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

Patrick My kit was very complete. Given my specific situation we had to make a few modifications or additions. After receiving my kit I opted to have a installer completed the installation. When he completed his installation it seemed he had a hard time getting everything function as it should, it was not a wiring issue as much as a plug issue. After picking up my trailer I noticed that the lights would stop working, I would stop and remove and re-plug, or would wiggle the plug around and the lights would come back on. Other than having to stop frequently driving in the dark with a black trailer and no lights is not good. My work schedule has prevented me from investigating these issues further, but they will have to be taken care of prior to any further use. I will keep you appraised of my situation. Steve 73534

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

Very convenient supplying all parts needed for wiring installation. However, considering the cost of all of the individual parts, the cost of this kit seemed a bit high, mainly because the combination 7 and 4 lead connector seemed to light weight and flimsy for this type application. I feel like I will have to be very careful not to break the hinge on the 7 pin connector cover.55089

Everything needed to install into my 02 Toyota Tacoma. Watched the video on the Tundra and Tacoma models for reference. Install only took over an hour account the red brake wire on the Toyota is a pain(brake controller box conection under dash) but the video shows how to get to it. Nice and clean install with the jacketed wire to run along the frame to the engine compartment. Would recomend to anyone in future to buy. 54420

This kit makes the Installation of the Prodigy P2 very easy. Instructions are good if you also review the video. Only problem I have with the kit is there was not enough 2 conductor wire to wire the Prodigy power. If the included wire had been 3 feet longer, there would not have been an issue at all. I recomend this kit to anyone installing a brake controller.53741

Most parts needed to install brake controller are in this kit, however some of them, 4 pin connector for example, appear to be lower quality than expected . I installed it on my 2008 dakota and it works fine. Also the 4 pin connector does not have a ground pin. I replaced this with a better connector with a ground pin52682

I installed the ETBC7 brake controller installatio kit and Prodigy II brake controller on a 2000 Toyota Tundra after watching the installation video for a 2002 Toyota Tundra from your website. I'm not a mechanic, but the vehicle year was close enough to be an exact match and the installation went without a hitch. I never would have tried to do it myself without the step-by-step video to watch first to give me the confidence to tackle the project. Good on ya for making it so easy.52640

Everything that was needed was in the box. Excellent video on installation and the support staff over the phone was exceptional. I thought I had an issue and called the customer service line and they help walk me thru the issue the best that they could. Once back out at the truck and finishing up the install, the issue that I thought I had was not an issue at all, it simply was a previous owner installation that was not completely removed. Someone had left the scotch lock on the brake wire next to brake switch that "appeared" to be still connected somewhere. But once I removed the old scotch lock, the wire simply fell into floor. All is well.52426

First of all, eTrailer.com is tops with customer service. I mistakenly order a 1-1/4" tube cover and the good folk at etrailer caught the discrepancy and called my to double check that I was ordering what I wanted or needed. My order shipped promptly and everything I ordered was in the package when it arrived at my door. The ETBC7 Bake Controller 7 and 4 way wiring kit, as advertised, included everything- well almost everything - I needed to install a 7 way plug while also providing a 4 way plug so that we can tow our new travel trailer with electric brakes. I say almost because I needed to round up a few extra items to complete the project. These included an extra 3/8" eye connector. The kit includes two but the electric brake controller I chose made it clear in their installation instructions that it should be grounded directly to the battery and not the body of the car. I also needed some longer zip ties than those provided. I also needed to pick up a rubber grommet for the hole I had to drill in my firewall. But, I can't imagine that each vehicle will have unique requirements beyond what this install kit provides, so I can highly recommend this kit to anyone who needs to install a brake controller. The only thing I was disappointed with was that the plug receptacle was made out of plastic. Perhaps this is best as it dose reduce weight ( a bit) and no corrosion is suppose. 51995

This made the installation of our brake controller a snap. I was able to run the wires under the car from front to back and had plenty left over. It is great having all of the breakers included also. The plug works great also. No need for an adapter to run 7 or 4 pin. A great kit for sure.51437

The service and shipping was exceptional but the product (the connector box) was disappointing. The small connector has a cover which fits sloppily and the material that the unit is comprised of is not ridged enough. I had trouble pushing the trailer connector onto the four prong unit because the plastic base was too flexible. The spring that closes the hatch for the 7 prong connector is weak and I doubt it will last the winter, we will see. There is no rubber boot or system to protect the back side where the wires enter the unit from the elements. This part faces forward and we live in Wisconsin (snow and highway salt country). I doubt the wire connections inside the unit will survive 1 year. Hope I am wrong. I will tell you however the person taking my order knew what she was doing, She was polite and a real pleasure to deal with. The order was shipped and delivered in light speed, the shipping and tracking was sent to us by e-mail, ALL way above normal expectation. I will order again from this company. 50570

This kit worked perfectly for a 1988 GMC C3500 with old 4 pin connector. The instructions,video links, and materials are all excellent- the duplex wire included was just the right length. I did need one rubber grommet,one dab of RTV, and an additional 6' of 12ga wire for my brake controller ground,which were luckily in my tool box - everything works perfect.

This is a high quality kit. Unfortunately my kit was missing the 4 smaller eyelet terminations.

I bought these products and just got them. I have not installed them yet. I paid more than I could of from others. The single reason I bought from e-trailer was the very good videos on how to install these. This is a bigger deal than you might think. If these get done wrong and you cause an accident it will be very uncomfortable. I will also make some improvements along the way. I want the circiut breaker in a juntion box, the wire that runs to the flat four needs upgraded and backed up or you lose the whole system. All of these wires need to be marine grade wire so the corrosion does not crawl up the wire, it is worth it. Use marine grade crimp, solder, and shrink tube and connectors. Interesting but we are getting there.39169

Just about everything a person would need to install a brake kit in a older truck. The only thing I bought was a 3A rated rocker switch because I did not want the brake controller always on.

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

ETBC7 makes quick work for installing trailer wiring. I followed directions on this install but plan on installing my next harness differently. I can't find an advantage to having spliced wires under my hood when I could splice them under the dash and have connections protected from the elements by being under the dash. Fast delivery from etrailer gets etrailer another sale. My wiring order came in time for me to cancel service work at a dealer. I will be ording same parts for my son's truck.36501

This item provides everything you need to install a brake controller. I used extra zip ties to be super neat, but the amount included will get you by. There are cheaper wiring kits around, but if you add up the cost and consider the quality of this kit you'll come out on top here. Note that it comes with all the connectors you need plus three circuit breakers (not fuses). You only need two, so you'll end up with an extra 20 or 30 amp circuit breaker for something else. I installed this on a 94 landcruiser and had just enough wire to complete the job. Two more feet would have been nice, but every vehicle is different.35888

Great product that was fairly straightforward to install thanks to eTrailers website.

The wiring kit had almost all of the parts needed - the cable was too short for all of the wiring.

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.

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

Very pleased with the kit, even if costs more out the door, saves me a trip to the store!!

This product along with the great video made this job easy. I have a Jeep Wrangler so with the short wheel base I had extra wire left over. Maybe etrailer should offer a "long wheel base" kit with a few extra feet of wire....maybe charge a few bucks more to make those guys happy.

Great product! The wires are heavy duty and durable and the mounting hardware allows for several methods of installation. After running all the wire through the undercarriage and engine compartment on my X-Terra, I still had about 6ft left. As long as you are proficient with electrical wiring you should do fine. I used a dremel tool to cut a mounting hole through my bumper, which worked great, but an under-bumper mount could also be easily done with this kit. There aren't enough zip-ties in the kit but those are easy to come by.18778

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
