Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional - 2010 Chevrolet Suburban

Proportional brake controller can be mounted within a 90-degree vertical range. LED monitor indicates braking action of trailer. Fine-tune power adjustment lets you set braking intensity to suit your towing needs.

Features:

  • Brake controller activates trailer brakes in proportion to your Chevrolet Suburban's braking action
    • Automatically adjusts trailer's braking based on deceleration of tow vehicle
    • Activates immediately - no pausing like with time-delayed brake controllers
  • Multiple mounting options
    • Position within 90 degrees in the vertical plane
  • Fine-tune adjustment for braking power and aggressiveness
  • Green LED monitors a secure connection with trailer
  • LED monitor changes color to alert you to braking action of trailer
  • Built-in, slide-bar manual override
  • Plug-in, vehicle-specific brake-control adapter (sold separately) can be used for certain applications to reduce installation time


Specs:

  • Application: trailers with up to 4 axles (8 brake assemblies)
    • Designed for use with electric brakes only
  • Dimensions: 3" wide x 5" long x 1-1/2" tall
  • Mounting: between -20 degrees and 70 degrees in the vertical plane
  • 5-Year limited warranty


Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner.


As long as the Voyager controller is mounted properly and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power and Sensitivity Adjustment

Getting the braking power you need for your application is simple with the Voyager. First, set up the controller as indicated in the instructions, making sure that the internal sensor is properly leveled. Then set the overall power by adjusting the power knob while you test out your rig. The power should be just enough to achieve maximum braking without locking up your trailer brakes.


Once you have the overall power set, you can fine-tune the power output by adjusting the sensitivity of the internal sensor. Use the level knob on the side of the Voyager to achieve your desired degree of intensity. Move the knob toward you (clockwise) to delay the power output, creating braking sensitivity that is ideal for lightweight setups. If you are towing a heavy load, you may want the trailer to brake more aggressively to prevent it from pushing your tow vehicle. To get more intense stopping action, turn the level knob away from you (counterclockwise).


LED Indicator

On the front of the Voyager there is an LED indicator that is designed to keep you aware of the braking action of your trailer. Typically, this light burns green to indicate that your trailer and tow vehicle are securely connected. When the light is green, only 5 milliamps are being drawn, thus minimizing drain on your Chevrolet Suburban's battery.


As you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, the LED will change to red. This indicates that power is being sent to the trailer brakes. The light will also burn red whenever you activate the manual override lever.


During installation and setup, this light is used to ensure that the Voyager will be able to function correctly. Proper leveling of the internal sensor is crucial to the operation of this brake controller. When the sensor is level, the LED will change to a shade of orange.


Simple Installation

The Voyager is designed to be mounted in your cab at a vertical angle that is between -20 degrees and 70 degrees.


Correct Voyager mounting90-Degree Voyager mounting

Note: The Voyager must be mounted on a level horizontal (side-to-side) plane and must be lined up with the direction of travel for the internal sensor to function properly.


Once the controller is mounted, you must level the internal sensor. First, set the overall power to maximum using the knob on the side of the controller. Then, while pressing the tow vehicle's brake pedal, adjust the level knob on the other side of the brake controller (this is the same knob that is used to fine-tune the power output) until the LED monitor is a shade of orange.


Installation requires that you either purchase a custom wiring adapter designed to plug into the Voyager or that you hardwire the controller directly into your Chevrolet Suburban. To hardwire the Voyager, you must remove the plug at the end of the integrated wiring harness.


Installation Accessories

For easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your Chevrolet Suburban, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your Chevrolet Suburban, one of the following will be required:

20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2- to 4-brake applications

30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 6- to 8-brake applications

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Manufacturer Review

Congratulations. And thank you for owning one of the most sophisticated trailer braking systems available today. Whether you tow for work or play, you can depend on Tekonsha to enhance your towing experience by working to make sure both your tow vehicle and the trailer it is pulling slow down and stop at the same time. Over the next several minutes we will show you some important set up steps to be sure you have the smoothest braking experience possible. If you have questions or need more specific information, please refer to the installation and owners guide enclosed with your controller. If this is your first installation, please listen for a moment for some important tips. Performance braking controls are directional.

This means that the back of the control must be positioned toward the front of the vehicle or in the direction of travel. Locate the mounting position on the face of the dash in the most convenient position possible and within easy reach. Many brake controls have a primary operating range, nose up or nose down. Refer to your installation instructions for the range that applies to your control. Most newer vehicles have a brake control vehicle plug in point located in the primary electrical harness under the dash. Use the vehicles specific wiring harness, sometimes provided by the automobile manufacturer or available separately from your brake control supplier, to connect the break control wiring. Then plug it in under the dash.

If your vehicle is older, or does not provide a plug in point, use the generic wiring instructions provided with the brake control or see your dealer for installation details. If you have questions, please refer to the owners guide. The first step in positioning the sensor for a Tekonsha Voyager brake control is to park the tow vehicle and trailer on as level a surface as possible. With the trailers connector connected to the tow vehicle, the first thing that you will notice is the bi-colored LED on the front of the control will be glowing green. This will let you know that you have a complete circuit between the tow vehicle and the trailer. Next, find the power control knob on the right side of the control and turn it clockwise toward the front of the vehicle until the maximum setting is reached. Next, press the brake pedal and hold it. Look at the bi-colored LED on the control. If the light is green in color, find the level knob on the left side of the control and rotate it counter clockwise toward the front of the vehicle until the LED begins to pulsate between green and orange. You will want to move back into the green by rotating the level knob on the left side of the control clockwise toward the rear of the vehicle just a little at a time. What you are doing here is setting the sensor at the transition point just between the green and the flashing red. Tow the trailer at about 25 miles per hour and do a couple of slow speed stops as if coming to a stop sign. And notice the feel of the trailer.

Does it seem to pull a little at the end of the stop? If it does, your sensor setting is a little too aggressive. Simply move the level wheel clockwise very slightly and repeat the stop. Repeat the procedure until you feel the truck and trailer brake smoothly together. If you feel a pushing sensation from the trailer it is because the opposite has occurred. And you have a delayed setting on the sensor control. Simply move the level knob counter clockwise slightly into a more aggressive position. Once this is done the control is set and should not have to be reset until such a time that the road conditions change or the trailer weight changes significantly. Keep in mind that the power knob should never be used to fine tune your control. Harsh, aggressive braking at slow speed stops is usually caused by an improper sensor setting. After you have driven several miles and the trailer brakes have warmed up, you may want to repeat this process to further refine your stops. Please refer to the owners guide on warming the brakes. Because every trailer is different, your brake control needs to learn the weight of the trailer and condition of the trailer brakes. This is required to determine the optimum power necessary during an emergency stop without trailer wheel lock up. First, rotate the knob on the right side of the control so it is in the 12 o'clock position. Tow the trailer on as level a surface as possible and attain a constant speed of between 20 and 25 miles per hour and engage the manual slide bar found in the front of the control.

You will notice that the bi-colored LED will turn from green to orange to red indicating an increase of current to the brakes. Hold this for a few seconds and release. If the trailer brakes did not lock up, increase the power by turning the knob on the right side of the control clockwise toward t he front of the vehicle and repeating the manual engagement. Repeat these steps until such a time that the trailer brakes are just below wheel lock up. If at anytime the brakes do lock during this procedure, reduce the power by turning the knob counter clockwise toward the rear of the vehicle. Now the setting has been made so that the power output is just below wheel lock up. It is that easy. For information to fine tune your system, for optimal performance, check your owners guide for details.

This installation is in a 2010 Ford F-150 Lariat The installation was very easy. It helps to have a 90 degree screwdriver to install the screws on the right side. The screws will install easier if you install them first, remove them and re-install after the bracket is installed on the vehicle. 8161

Installed in 2006 Toyota Sequoia towing 5000 lb camper. Nothing fancy with this brake control unit, but I wanted simplicity. I have exact same unit in 2000 Silverado used for towing 5th wheel camper. 13 years of towing various trailers, never a problem braking, this unit gets it done! Easy to install and set up. Etrailer.com was great, ordered from website, had the unit 3 days later, installed and towing on day 4...Thank you.68653

Just as described. I had a four pin and that plugged into this wire harness and then I had two wires to run to front of car. Once under the hood there are a few other wires to run to battery and through fire wall into vehicle to connect to a break controller. My local shops wanted over $400 for parts and labor. I saved over $250 doing it myself. It took me about 3 hours. At least an hour was running wires through the fire wall. The engine compartment was very tight near firewall in my 2006 Toyota Sierra. 86763

I have had several of these over the years. I currently have 3 controllers on different trucks. I pull 5 different trailers with completely different weights. The controller works really well. I definately recommend this controller. You level it on the left side, which allows for placement in alot of areas of the truck. When I am towing I can adjust the brakes with the dial on the right side. Obviously the brakes need to be lighter when the trailer is empty. Simply turn the dial back until the brakes don't lock up. When I get it loaded I turn the dial forward until I can feel the brakes take hold. The lever on the front lets me manually apply the trailer brakes. I use this in cases where I am going downhill and it is better to let the trailer slow me down. If I ever need another controller, this will be it. Great price also.92292

Easy to install and works fine. I was a little confused though. I watched this vied which was extremely helpful and told me exactly how to install the device http://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-brake-controller-2011-chevrolet-suburban-90885.aspx however, the video says the wire butts are included, and they were not. Otherwise, all is good.107567


Comments

That video is for a different brake controller, the Prodigy P2 part 90885. The installation will be similar, but not all the same parts are included. The P2 does include a loose wire pigtail and butt connectors. Plug-in connectors and the loose wire pigtail connector are sold separately for the Voyager controller.

I have not used this product for trailer brakes yet as I have not bought my travel trailer. Installing was very easy even without a factory stock plug to connect to. The only problem I had with the unit is there is no way to know if it works until you have a trailer plugged in (or you jump the connections at the plug). I had to hook up to a friends trailer just to know if it worked. Other than that, no complaints.31165

I installed this controller on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Installation was easy (as I had also purchased the adapter cable for my Jeep), adjustment instructions were clear and the controller worked perfectly.79126


Comments

Hi...am also looking at installing on my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Am in Australia....not sure what the adjuster cable is and whether it is something I should mention to my Auto Electrician. Are you able to clarify?

comment by: Terry B - 8/7/2013


1859

The adapter cable referenced is for plugging the brake controller into a port under the dash that Jeep provides on models with the factory towing package, in this case, it is part 3045-P. Please note this port will only be present and active on models equipped with a factory 7-Way trailer connector at the rear. These harnesses are also developed and designed for North American Market vehicles and if your Grand Cherokee was built for sale in Australia, it may not be compatible and could potentially damage the vehicle electrical system. In that case, it may be best to have the installer hard-wire in the brake controller and use an ETBC7 kit to complete the install. It would give the installer all the parts needed to add a 7-Way and wire the Voyager in.

I'd had one of these before so ordered for my current install, they're a good controller, however, it's limited to 20ยบ nose down on the install, so it didn't fit my current dash. My mistake, I should have checked before ordering. Decided to order a P3 to replace it, etrailer customer service was awesome, issued an RMA (I hadn't attempted to install it yet, just read the instructions and saw the limitation). I'd deal with this company 100 times out of 100 for my trailer needs!24628

Product installed easily. The calibration seems straight forward and I was able to do the preliminary setup. Due to weather and time, I have not done the road test 'fine tuning' but I imagine it will work great as well. This is a very good mid price range controller. I rarely buy the 'very best' nor do I buy the 'low end'. Mid range is usually a good product for the money and this seems to be just that.118238

Great brake controller. I installed it in a 2003 F350. I mounted it inside the compartment under the 4x4 shift knob. I had to remove the pins from the connector to feed them through a hole i drilled in the back of the dash. I did this so there were no exposed holes drilled in the dash face. Then i mounted the controller inside the compartment using velcro. 123947

  • Troubleshooting Tekonsha Voyager That Only Activates Brakes with Manual Switch
  • For some reason, your brake controller is not getting the signal that you are pressing your brake pedal. That signal comes along the red wire of the brake controller. The wire should be run to the stop light circuit. This is either done by hardwiring up to a switch on the brake pedal or if your vehicle has a tow package there should be a port that you plug into that is pre-wired with the necessary circuits. If you hardwired the brake controller, trace the red wire from the brake controller to

  • Trailer Brakes Locking and Grabbing when Using a Tekonsha Voyager 9030 Part # 39510
  • The first thing to check would be the sensor and power settings on the Tekonsha Voyager. If those knobs get bumped the sensor level can be offset and the brake controller will think you are braking harder than you actually are and end up sending more current to the trailer brakes than needed. The power knob could have gotten turned as well which would cause the brake controller to act more aggressively. If the brake controller it self has been bumped tilted about 70 degrees or below -20 degrees,

  • How to Wire a Brake Controller on a 1991 International Truck
  • It sounds as if you need to use a circuit tester, part number 3808 if you need one, and be sure you have the red wire from the brake controller connected to the cold side of the brake switch. The wire you need will not have power until the pedal is pushed activating the brake light circuit. Sometimes there are many wires at the brake switch to perform various functions such as cruise control and there can be constant voltage either 12 volt or reduced and then 12 volt when the pedal is pushed and

  • Do I Need an Alternate Ground for Wiring a Tekonsha Voyager and 2010 Toyota Tundra
  • Some brake controller ports may not have a ground pin, so a separate ground point may be needed. In the case of the first question you looked at, the 2010 Tundra has a port with all 4 functions, including a ground. If the harness comes with a separate ground wire, it will need to be attached for the brake controller to function properly. The second question you referenced is a different situation. The vehicle he has does not have a brake controller port. Instead, he had to find the right wire

  • Brake Controller Installation On a 1994 Ford F-350 Pickup
  • We have the instructions online for the Tekonsha #9030 Voyager Proportional Brake Controller, item # 39510, (see link). Installation on your 1994 Ford F-350 pickup will only require a wiring adapter, item # 3035-P, if you have a factory 7-Way tow package at the rear of the vehicle. If you do not have a factory 7-Way tow package you will need to hard wire the brake controller and trailer connector on your vehicle. Start off with a 4-Way connector, item # 118316, if you do not have one and then

  • Brake Controller Installation on a 2002 GMC Sierra Pickup, Possible Wire Colors and Functions
  • You might have a port on your truck, driver side, to the left of the emergency brake pedal in a power distribution box. If so, you can just plug in wiring adapter # 20263 and match the colors on the other end to the brake controller. To complete installation and to activate the tow package (if it has not been done already) there are some connections that need to be made under the hood. I have included an FAQ explaining the process below. Wire colors are not an exact science, even on vehicles

  • Installing Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Part # 39510 on a 2007 Jeep Liberty
  • I would be happy to walk you through the process. First of all, you will need a 4-pole trailer wiring harness, part # 118524 if your Liberty does not already have one. You will then need our Brake Controller Install Kit, part # ETBC7 for a 7-way trailer connector, or # ETBC6 for a 6-way connector. The install kit includes all wire, connectors and circuit breakers necessary for the installation. The kit includes a trailer connector adapter that plugs into the 4-pole harness. At this point, you

  • Installing Brake Controller 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • The Explorer Sport Trac models were not pre wired for a brake controller from the factory. Does the vehicle already have a 4-pole trailer connector?

  • Troubleshooting Tekonsha Voyager that Does not Apply Trailer Brakes Unless Manual Override is Used
  • There are a few things that can be checked fairly easily. The first is the inertia sensor. Inside the Voyager is a little pendulum that swings according to your braking, just like when you are pushed forward into your seat belt when you brake hard. This sensor reads how hard you are braking and sends the appropriate level of braking power to the trailer. The knob on the left hand side is the sensor level knob. It maye need to be adjusted if it got bumped. The power or gain knob on the right h

  • Which Tekonsha Brake Controller is Recommended for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a Travel Trailer
  • The Prodigy P2 from Tekonsha, part # 90885, would be an excellent choice for your application. It is a great controller with a lot of capabilities, but is pretty straightforward and easy to use. The Tekonsha Voyager is tried and true, but it is a bit more finicky to set up with having to level the sensor. The P2 is much easier to setup and get started with. Now, in 2007 when GM introduced the new body for the Sierra/Silverado, they did away with the brake controller ports and instead are p

  • Troubleshooting Constant Power on Blue Brake Output Wire on Voyager Brake Controller
  • It does sound like there is a short to the brake controller through the wiring or in the internal circuitry of the brake controller. If your brake controller shows no red light, a dim or flashing red light, or the red light starts dim but gets brighter as the power knob is decreased, then this indicates a short to the brake line (blue wire). You would need to check to make sure the wiring is intact on the harness and on your truck including the grounds. If you cannot find a wiring or ground

  • Tekonsha Voyager Not Lighting on a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 25800
  • If the brake pin on the truck connector has power all the time, there may be something wrong on the truck. It may also be in the wrong port on the junction box. There are at least 2 ports that the plug will fit into, but only one of them is the right port. As you look at the junction box, you need to use the port on the top row, second from the far left. I have added a link to an article on installing a brake controller on 1999-2007 GM trucks with a brake controller port. One of these pins, the

  • Voyager Brake Controller Red Light Not Coming On with Brakes Applied on a 2004 Chevy Silverado
  • There are several possible causes that would lead the red light not to come on when applying the brakes or manual override on the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, # 39510. First, if truck is not moving, the brakes will not activate. You will also want to check to make sure the power setting is not too low. There may be no signal from the brake light switch. You will need to test the red wire from the back of the brake controller using a circuit tester like the Quickee # 3808. If there is no

  • What Do I Need To Equip My 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck With to Pull Trailer That Has Brakes

To convert your wiring on your Dodge Ram 1500 to a 7-way, I would recommend the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7 to convert your wiring to a 7-way connector and hook up to a brake controller. Part # ETBC7 also has a 4 pole outlet, so you can hook up to trailers using a 4-p

  • You can certainly install the Tekonsha Voyager, # 39510, on your 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500. If your truck has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector, all you will need to do is hardwire the brake controller wiring with the truck wiring located under the dash, below the steering column, and off to the left a little. The truck wiring will most likely be held together with white tape or a tag that explains each wires function. You will need this tag to match the FUNCTIONS (not colors) with th

  • On your 1996 GMC 2500 the brake stoplight switch is very hard to access in this model year, but the circuit can be accessed at a different point. Try looking at the electrical center down by your left foot. Look for a a position labeled NAT, which will include 2 male spade connectors. Try a circuit tester like the Quickee Tester, # 3808, on the spade on the right, and see if it goes hot when the brake pedal is pressed. Although this can vary by model, if the spade is hot with the pedal pressed,
