Hopkins Agility Trailer Brake Controller - Hardwire - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional - 2000 GMC Savana Van

Proportional brake controller can be mounted within a 360-degree vertical range. Digital display indicates braking action of trailer. Fine-tune power adjustment has 5 levels so that you can set braking intensity to suit your towing needs.

Features:

  • Brake controller activates trailer brakes in proportion to your GMC Savana Van's braking action
    • Automatically adjusts trailer's braking based on deceleration of tow GMC Savana Van
    • Activates immediately - no pausing like with time-delayed brake controllers
  • Multiple mounting options
    • Position at any angle up or down in the vertical plane
      • Recommended mounting is between -20 degrees and 70 degrees
  • 5 Sensitivity levels let you adjust initial braking power and aggressiveness
  • Digital display is easy to read
  • Built-in, slide manual override lever
  • Pigtail harness hardwires into your GMC Savana Van


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 1-1/4" tall
  • Mounting: 360-degree vertical plane operating range
  • 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 GMC Savana Van. 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 Agility controller sits level on a horizontal plane and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow GMC Savana Van brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow GMC Savana Van 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 Agility. First, set the overall power so that you can 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 adjustment buttons on the top of the controller to achieve your desired degree of intensity. There are 5 levels to choose from. The first level offers the least amount of sensitivity, making it ideal for lightweight setups. The heavier your load, the higher you will want to take the sensitivity. At level 5, the sensitivity of the internal sensor is as high as it can go. This level provides the most aggressive braking and is ideal for heavy loads.


Digital Display

On the front of the Agility there is a digital display that is designed to keep you aware of the braking action of your trailer. This screen shows your sensitivity level, overall power percentage and error codes for issues such as a short circuit.


Simple Installation

The Hopkins Agility can be mounted anywhere within 360 degrees vertically, but it is recommended that it be mounted in your cab at an angle that is between -20 degrees and 70 degrees to make it easier to access.


Correct Agility mounting90-Degree Agility mounting

Note: The Agility 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.


This brake controller is designed to be hardwired into your GMC Savana Van.


Installation Accessories

See etrailer.com's exclusive 7- and 4-way brake-control installation kit (ETBC7 - sold separately) if you don't already have a 7-way plug at the back of your GMC Savana Van.


Note: One of the following will be required to ensure proper installation:

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

Review from a similar Hopkins Agility Electric Brake Controller


I was able to install the brake controller in less than five minutes once I located the plug underneath my dash. Etrailer had a video that even showed where to look on my vehicle. This unit is very easy to adjust and it is flawless so far. I had already purchased a controller in a local retailer's store but they didn't carry the adapter I needed in order to install the unit. Etrailer.com had both units in stock and $20.00 less than my local store. I chose this unit because of the plug and play features and I know that if I want to change vehicles, I just need to purchase the corresponding adapter and I can easily transfer my Agility controller into my new vehicle. The shipping was fast and low cost. Etrailer.com was my last stop during this project but they will be my first stop for my next trailer project!! 35377

Excellent. I hooked this Hopkins controller up with the specified harness and after plugging it into the Factory OEM plus on my Honda Ridgline, all I had to do was add a 20amp fuse as they don't put it in the Ridgeline from the factory, but the manual does list that. Worked like a champ! This proportional controller allows my Ridgeline with the trailer to feel as if there is nothing on the truck when I'm breaking. Seems as if there is no trailer connected as compared to when I have pulled with electronic braking where you never seem to get the settings just right. 54187

Any of our controllers can be removed when not in use. Some are easier to remove than others. I have added links to controllers that have removable plugs for the harness and slide-in or snap-on style brackets so that no screws have to be removed to remove the controller.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Not Working When Brakes Are Applied but Works With Override Switch
  • This sounds like the trailer brakes are not receiving the signal from the brake controller when you apply the brakes. I believe what is happening is that you may have a loose, broken, or inaccurate connection on the red wire from the brake controller. The red wire needs to attach to the stop light switch above the brake pedal. It connects to the wire on this switch that carries a signal ONLY when the brake pedal is pressed. It should not have a signal at any other time. Use a circuit...

  • Troubleshooting Hopkins Agility Brake Controller
  • What you are describing does indeed sound like a short circuit somewhere in the brake output circuit between the brake controller and the trailer connector at the rear bumper. You can confirm this by severing the blue wire a few inches behind where it exits the brake controller. If the problem goes away, you have confirmed the short. The first place to look for the short would be the trailer connector. Closely examine the connector for damage or corrosion. If you can find white or green...
