Custom Fit Brake Controller
SUBJECT/Summary: Installing an electric brake contoller on any vehicle that uses a 24 volt electrical system.
PROBLEM: The maxium input voltage for most brake controls is 12 volts for battery supply and brake signal.
SOLUTION: When installing an electric brake control onto a vehicle that has a 24 volt electrical system, follow the wiring instructions below. Because the stop lights are operating on 24 volts you will need to obtain (locally) a 24 volt relay for the stop light signal and install per instructions and wiring diagram below.
Connect the white (ground) wire to the negative terminal of the first battery. Connect the black (power) wire between the positive terminal of the first battery and the negative terminal of the second battery. Run the bluw (electric brake) wire to the trailer connector. The red (stop light signal) wire will connect to the load terminal of the relay.
Please refer to the wiring diagram below.
NOTE: The trailer brakes will operate on 12 volts. The trailer lighting will remain at 24 volts.
