Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford Escape- Video

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford Escape

Today on our 2008 Ford Escape we'll be installing the Tekonsha Primus IQ trailer brake controller, part number TK90160. Now this button on top here is our boost control. This will adjust how much brake power goes to our brakes when we are towing heavier loads. We're going to dial up our boost level settings as appropriate to give us more power. Basically what that means is that the boost settings will give you more intense braking faster than if you had the boost levels turned off. Now, if you want to adjust your braking power, you turn it all the way down off so when I hit our manual lever here, you can see we have no assist. We had it all the way up to 11. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Nissan Xterra

Today on our 2011 Nissan Xterra we're going to be taking a look at the Teknosha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller for one to three axles, part number TK90160 and we'll be using this in conjunction with the Tekonsha plugin wiring adapter for brake controllers for Nissans, part number 3050-P. Here's what this brake controller looks like once it's installed in the vehicle. This brake controller is going to do a good job of giving us power to our brakes on our trailer that's behind us. This one, we don't currently have it connected to a trailer so if we hit the manual override, you'll see it shows NC for no connection, but when connected it'll show you the power output that it's putting through to a trailer. Here on the side we've got this turn dial to adjust your gain level for the amount of power being sent back to the brakes on your trailer. Here on the top we've got this blue button and that's going to let you go through to your three boost levels so that you can adjust the amount of boost that's going to go back to the trailer brakes. This brake controller is nice and easy to use and it's going to do a great job of providing proportional braking power to the brakes on your trailer and it does that by the inertia sensor that it has inside. You're able to mount it from zero degrees all the way up to 90 degrees in the vertical plane. What I like most about this brake controller is how easy it is to use and operate because it's as simple as setting it and if you want to set a boost level, you can do that. more

A lot of our customers like that you can change the screen color, to select whatever you would like. Overall, this brake controller is just going to do a really good job of making sure that, whatever trailer you've got behind you, that you're going to have the braking power that you need.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2009 GMC Sierra we'll be taking a look at and installing the Hopkins Insight Flex Mount Trailer Brake Controller for 1 to 4 axles, part number HM47297. What's going to set this controller apart from some of the others on the market is you're able to put your display where you'd like it in your view, and you'll be able to put your switch in a location that's easy for you to get to to adjust your braking. Our control box is going to be mounted down on our kick panel or in your center console. Here's what it looks like once it's installed. You have your display unit. As you can see on our control panel we're going to have a nice manual switch. We can operate our brakes on our trailer manually should the need arise as you're going down the road or for some close turning situations where you want to apply the brakes to the trailer. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2015 Ram 2500

Today we're going to be reviewing and installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller, which control one to four axles for a proportional braking system, part number 90195, on a 2015 Ram 2500. This is a proportional brake controller, so it will sense how hard you're hitting the brakes, and send the correct amount of power back to the trailer, as opposed to a time delay braking system, which sends power back to the trailer once you've hit your brakes, and doesn't let off until you release your brakes. This will give you much smoother braking with your trailer. Over here, this up button, changes your trailer gain. If you need more power going to the trailer breaks, it can provide that for you. The down button will lower the power going to the brakes. You can set it at whatever your trailer requires. Up here, in the top right corner, we've got the boost button. more

Today, on our 2013 Ford Escape, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller, 1 to 4 axles, proportional. It is Part #90195, and we'll also be using the ETBC7 Connector to ease our installation. The ETBC7 kit comes with this nice bracket here, to mount the 7-pole round connector that our trailer brake controller will be using. As you can see on our hitch right here, there's a nice mounting point for it, so I'm going to go ahead and star the installation by securing it with the included screw and washer on the bottom. Then we'll use the star lock washer, and the nut. Screw it on around. more

It'll apply the brakes on the trailer in a proportional manner so they will both stop equally. Let's go over a couple features of our trailer brake controller. We have the adjuster wheel on the left. more

Hayes Brake Controller HA81742B Review

Today we are going to be taking a look at the Hayes Enegerize III Plus. This is an electric brake controller. This proportional brake controller is for use on all trailers with 2, 4, or 6 electric trailer brakes. A proportional brake controller works in direct proportion to the tow vehicles braking effort, so basically the more deceleration detected by the internal censor, the greater the amount of power that is delivered to the trailer brakes. This offers faster and smoother stopping performance, as well as extra power and control. It activates immediately, so there is no pausing like when using time delay brake controllers. more

It's going to give you a little bit more customization for your trailers or your operators. You're going to have three separate boost levels, which your boost is going to control your aggressiveness of how fast your brakes come on in your trailer, opposed to how they come on in your vehicle. more

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. more
