Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford Van

Today on our 2014 Ford E450 box truck we will be installing the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller in conjunction with our universal installation kit for 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat connectors to better assist us.

  • If you do not have the boat on the tandem axle trailer, what you have mentioned is how the trailer suspension will look without a load on it. The equalizer will be up in the rear and the rear spring will be tilting the axle forward. The reason is because the rear tires on your boat trailer are made to scrub when turning and with the suspension set up this way it keeps the majority of the load on the trailer from being put on the rear tires. If the boat is on your trailer and...

  • The Superwinch LT3000 # SW1130220 does come with a plate that will allow you to mount the winch on your trailer. My contact at Superwinch said that the plate will bolt to your trailer. The mounting bolt pattern is 3 inches by 4-7/8 inches. How the mount is connected to the trailer will depend on the trailer's construction. It is recommended that the mount be bolted onto a structure that is tied into the trailer frame.

  • On your 2012 Ford E350 Van with the factory towing package the brake controller port should be located behind the center of the dash above the stereo. You will need to remove the center panel above the stereo and to the left. Once it is removed there is a box where the Factory OEM brake controller would normally be installed, if your van was so equipped, and the connector is behind that box. The connector you found below the steering column is not the brake controller port. For...

  • Roadmaster steering stabilizer # RM-RBK11-RSSC is designed for Class C RVs built on the 2014 Ford E-350 van chassis and that have the V10 engine. If your model had the V8 motor and does not have the OEM dampener then the correct steering stabilizer is # RM-RBK2-RSSC like you said. But if it has the dampener then there other ways to add stability to the RV. For example you can upgrade the front factory sway bar using # RM-1139-176 and the rear using # RM-1139-117. This will...

  • There are 3 options from the manufacturer for the 2009 E-350 Ford Van. Factory 7-Way trailer wiring, factory 4-Way trailer wiring, and no existing trailer wiring. I will go over all three since you did not indicate which one your vehicle has. If you have the factory 7-Way trailer wiring, you will be able to use the 3034-P wiring harness that you selected to easily install your prodigy brake controller. When looking for a port under the dash, it will be near the top of the instrument...

  • The blue wire, or EBC wire ends somewhere along the factory wiring harness. Where it ends can vary and it is better to run a power wire from the blue wire under the dash to the back of the vehicle. For this you will need 10 Gauge Blue Primary Wire, part # 10-1-1, which is sold by the foot. I would say 25 feet would be more than enough wire to run to the back of your 2007 Ford E350 Van. If your vehicle has just the factory 4-flat connector, you will need to install a 7-way...

  • If the Motorhome has a 4-pole or a 7-way trailer connector on the rear, the port for installing the brake controller should be located under the dash to the right of the steering column. If the port is present, the Prodigy 2 and the # 3034-P wiring package will work just fine. If the motorhome only has a 4-pole connector, the brake output circuit has not been ran from the connector under the dash to the trailer connector. You will need to cut the blue wire on the # 3034P...

  • There could be many possibilities that are causing the pulsating of your brakes on your 2008 Ford E350. A few possibilities to start with would be to use a circuit tester like the Quickee Tester, part # 3808, and check the connection of your stoplight wire from the brake controller to your stoplight switch. This wire needs to be connected to the cold side of the stoplight switch, which will only show power when the brake pedal is applied. You will also want to check all the...

  • Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195225 is going to be much taller than the carrier you have now, # 6715.

  • The first thing you are going to want to do is determine the best axle position. I have included a picture that shows the math you will need to do to determine the best place for the axles. The tongue weight is a little low for a loaded trailer weight of 5,500 pounds. Typically tongue weight on a trailer is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight, a little lower on boat trailers. Tongue weight that is too low can lead to sway issues. Since you have surge brakes on the...
