How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2010 Ford F-150


Today on this 2010 Ford F-150 we are going to install a brake controller part number 90885 the Prodigy 2 brake controller. This F-150 has a factory tow package so our connector we are going to plug into is going to be behind the computer port here off towards the center. Maybe but a few inches away at the most. It is stuck into a cap right now so there is a little button that you want to push up and disconnect it. Plug the adapter cord into it and we are going to leave that alone for now. Next we will mount our brake controller to the bottom of the dash and we are going to locate it about right here and we are going to use this bracket that comes with the kit and basically we are going to pull it over to this screw right here and we will just use the screws that came with the kit and drill right into the plastic and it will be just fine. 00:50

We will get back to our adapter cord and our brake controller and we will plug the two together and then we can attach this to our bracket. Get a zip tie and zip tie the wires behind it safe and out of the way. Our physical install is complete. Now if we take a look at the brake controller you can see we have power to the brake controller and after a certain amount of time that will go off on its own. Essentially it will go to sleep but the brake pedal will act as an off/ on switch at this point. We will use the manual override and you can see right here it says NC which means no connection, there is no trailer connected up. There you have it for part number 90885 on our 2010 Ford F-150.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha PowerTrac. This is a time delayed electronic brake controller that will work for one or two axles. Part number is 39523. We're also going to be using the Tekonsha brake controller pigtail adapter, part number 22292. The PowerTrac offers a great solution for getting braking power out of our vehicle and back to our trailer to where our brake assemblies can use it. The PowerTrac is a time delayed brake controller so unlike on that requires inertia to operate the system in here as soon as we step on our brakes it's going to send braking power back to our trailer, which will slowly ramp up to the maximum that we have set here. The maximum is fully adjustable. If we rotate the dial away from us that's going to decrease our braking power.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F-150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 trailer brake controller. This is a proportional brake controller that works great for one up to four axles. Part number on it is 90195. We're also going to be using the Tekonsha brake controller pigtail adapter, part number 22292. The P3 is a very nice brake controller. To start with, it's proportional so this is going to brake in relation to how we're braking in our truck, versus a time-delayed system.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2104 Ford F150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2. This is a proportional brake controller that works great on up to 4 axles. Part number on it is 90885. We'll also be using the Tekonsha Plugin Brake Controller Adapter, part number 22292. A great thing about the P2 is going to be how it constantly monitors the connection between our truck and our trailer. If our 7 pole we're to become unplugged, or we we're to have some kind of wiring short, you can see it's going to flash, "nc, nc." That's going to indicate to us that we're not connected. Once we get that connection put back in place it's going to go back to "c" indicating that we've got a proper connection and our brakes are going to work on our trailer.

This is a proportional trailer brake controller, works for one up to four axles, part number on it is 90195. To complete our install we're also going to use the Tekonsha plug in wiring adapter, part number on that 22292. The two buttons on the left are going to allow us to adjust up and down the maximum braking output that we want sent back to our trailer. Now this you will adjust based on road conditions, trailer weight, and things like that. The higher we've got our power or what they call gain set, the more braking force is going to be applied to the brakes on our trailer. Currently we have, you can see here it's just an icon of a small truck with a small trailer behind it.
