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

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2013 Ford Excape

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

That is part number ETBC7. The part number for our brake controller is TK90160.

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

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
