What our customers are saying:

I would like to thank you for great products and service. I saved over $175.00 from the cheapest installer for the trailer brake setup alone. Your step by step instructions on your web site walked me through to a trouble free install that took the same amount of time as the pros quoted me. Thanks again, customer for life.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2010 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2010 Ford Explorer will be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, Part #90885 in conjunction with the etrailer Universal Installation Kit for Brake Controllers, Part #ETBC7. To start, we'll first go ahead and assemble the 7-pole adapter bracket. With the hardware provided we'll use it to attach the bracket to the 7-pole adapter. We'll go ahead and take the bracket, feed it over the wires and up to the back of the mounting surface for the 7-pole adapter. Then we'll take the screws, feed them through the front side of the 7-pole and secure it with the nuts on the backside. Once we have all four in place, we'll go ahead and tighten them down. I'm gonna go ahead and take some black electrical tape and wrap up 8 to 10 inches of our wire. This will assist in bundling our wires together and help protect it from the elements. Next we'll go ahead and attach the Draw-Tite No-Drill Mounting Bracket, Part #18136. Using the fasteners provided with the bracket we can secure it to the 7-pole bracket. Now we'll go ahead and take the purple wire, which in this application will not be used, and cut it off.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1996 Ford Explorer

Today we are going to install part number 90195 from Tekonsha, the P3 Brake Controller. We are also going to install along with it part number ETBC7. And this will all be installed on a 1996 Ford Explorer. To begin our install, we are actually going to start with the rear of our vehicle and then work our way forward. First off, we are going to install our bracket that actually holds our 7-pole in place. There are substitute brackets that you can use that this will go onto and mount onto the hitch tube itself. However, this particular 7-pole does not really work that good you have to get some extra-long screws and make new holes in the bracket. But in this case, it makes things a little easier and probably a little bit nicer. So we will go ahead with this bracket here that comes factory with it. We will drill out a half-inch hole, which will work perfect with the carriage bolt with a half-inch square hole in the bottom of the bumper. And we will end up with the bracket about right there. We have got our bracket in a bench vise and we will go ahead and put in a quarter-inch pilot hole first and follow it with a half-inch bit. We will our bolt into the bumper and then we will go ahead and install our bracket. And then we will put on the nut and then tighten it down and use an extra hand to hold the bracket while you tighten down the nut and bolt. All right, we will go ahead and install our 7-pole into the bracket.
