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 that same manner.


As long as the Energize XPC controller is properly mounted according to the included instructions, it will sense - via an internal sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. The 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.


Built-In Controls on the Energize XPC

Energize XPC Controls

The diagram above shows the controls and components of the Energize XPC trailer brake controller.


Power Output Control

The power output control lets you set the maximum amount of power that will be applied to your trailer's brakes. Typically, the power output is only readjusted if you switch from a heavy, loaded trailer to a much lighter, empty trailer - or vice versa.


During the initial setup process, use the thumbwheel on top of the Energize XPC to adjust the power output. To get more power to your brakes, rotate the dial upward. To decrease the power output, move it downward.


Sensitivity Adjustment with Deceleration Sensor Lever

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


Red Indicator Light

The red LED indicator light illuminates when the trailer brakes are activated. This light glows brighter as the power output to the trailer brakes increases.


Slide-Bar Manual Override

The manual slide lever overrides the preset power output and allows the operator to engage the trailer brakes without using the vehicle's brakes. In addition to being a necessary safety feature, this option helps to control trailer sway by slowing the trailer to put it back solidly behind the tow vehicle.


You can also engage the manual override to help you move a sliding 5th-wheel hitch closer to your truck's tailgate for tight maneuvering during slow speed turns. Just apply the manual override to hold the trailer in place while slowly moving the tow vehicle forward.


Quick, Simple Installation

Energize XPC Mounting Angles

Because this controller operates with an internal sensor, it must be mounted between -35 degrees and 90 degrees in the vertical plane. During initial installation, the deceleration sensor lever must be positioned straight up and down, as seen in the diagram above. The Energize XPC 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.


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


Installation Accessories

The Hayes vehicle-specific, dual-mated wiring adapter is available for most newer trucks and SUVs with tow packages. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle's brake controller port, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Hayes also offers a universal wiring harness (HA81789-HBC - sold separately) that plugs into any Hayes brake controller. The 4 leads on the universal harness can then be hardwired into your vehicle. By splicing the universal adapter into your wiring instead of directly connecting the brake controller to your wiring, you gain the ability to unplug and remove the controller from your vehicle should the need arise.


Notes:

  • If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, one of the following will be required:
    • 20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2-brake applications
    • 30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 4- to 6-brake applications.
  • If you're hardwiring the controller, it is also suggested that you install an in-line fuse between the controller and the stop light switch (required on 1999 and newer Fords).

Video Transcript for Hayes Brake Controller HA81745 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number HA81745. This is the Hayes Energize XPC Trailer Brake Controller for 1 to 3 axles. This brake controller activates your trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicle's braking action. What that means is that it's going to automatically adjust the trailer's brakes based on deceleration of the tow vehicle. It's going to activate immediately so there's no pausing like when using time delayed brake controllers. Here on the front it features a little thumb wheel for adjustable gain setting. It's going to let you determine the power output sent to the trailer's brakes.

You can set it to a higher output when towing in hilly terrain or with a fully loaded trailer, or you can set it lower when towing a lightweight or empty trailer. Here on the side it's going to feature a deceleration sensor lever that's going to let you adjust the braking aggressiveness. We also have a red LED indicator on the front of the unit that's going to show when the trailer's brakes are applied. The light will glow brighter as your power output increases. This brake controller features built in safe guards that are there to protect your vehicle and your trailer.

It has a manual override that illuminates the brake lights on the tow vehicle and trailer. It has a current limiter that's going to protect the vehicle from shorts in the trailer wiring. It also has hazard flasher immunity that's going to prevent the pulsing of the brakes when your flashers are in use. Here on the front it has an easy to access slide bar manual override. This is made from a dependable solid state construction and it's a quick and easy installation. It has the mounting bracket and all the hardware that you need to get this mounted.

It also features a easy to use plugin. Hayes also offers vehicle specific brake controller adapters that are sold separately that can be used for certain applications to help reduce the amount of time that it takes to install this. This is designed to be used with trailers up to 3 axles or 6 brake assemblies. It's designed for use with electric trailer brakes only. You can mount this in any position between 35 degrees and 90 degrees in the vertical plane. This is going to give us an overall width of 3 and 1/8th of an inch. The length of the controller is going to give us a measurement of 5 and 1/4 of an inch.

Then it's going to measure 1 and a 1/2 inches in height. You can see here too that it has multiple mounting options for the mounting bracket, that way you can choose accordingly to what's best going to suit your towing application. That's going to do it for today's review of part number HA81745. This is the Hayes Energize XPC Trailer Brake Controller. .

  • Instructions for Adjusting the Hayes Energize Brake Controller when Red Light Does Not work
  • The red light on the Hayes-Lemmerz Energize Electric Trailer Brake Controller, item # HA81745 should not illuminate until the brake pedal is pressed or the manual lever is activated. You may need to readjust the brake controller. This could happen because the brake controller position in the mount has changed or because the trailer weight has changed affecting the the ride height of the vehicle. If this does not solve the issue and the trailer brakes are not functioning properly you will...

  • Constant Power to Trailer Brakes and Red Light Always On the Brake Controller
  • It sounds like there is a short to the blue wire (brake output) on the brake controller. This can be caused by corrosion in or behind the vehicle and trailer side connectors. Power from the 12 volt circuit at the vehicle side connector could be jumping to the brake output circuit. This would make the brake controller think there is power being applied and when the trailer is connected it can send full power back to the brakes. To eliminate the brake controller as the problem, cut the...
