Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1996 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup
Today on our 1996 Chevy CK Pickup truck, we'll be installing the ETB C7 in junction with the Tekonsha Progigy P3 Brake Controller which is part number 90195. We will first begin by picking a location where we're going to mount our 7-way trailer plug. In this case because the trailer hitch comes out so far, we're going to go ahead and drill two small holes in the underside of the bumper to mount our bracket. Once we have the holes drilled, we'll go ahead and use the supplied screws and nuts to attach the bracket to the lower bumper. Next we'll go ahead and take some of the wire looms supplied with the kit and put it over the wires coming out of the back of the 7-way. Then we'll go ahead and feed the 7-way onto the bracket and attach it with the supplied screws and nuts. Next, we're going to go ahead and make the 4-way connection with the 4-way that's already on the vehicle and because this vehicle already had a 4-way on it, we've already gone ahead and tested it to make sure that everything is working properly. You want to make sure when making your connection of the two 4-ways that you use some dielectric grease on the connection before pushing them together.
