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.

As long as that's on, you know you've got a good connection with your trailer. If it we're to come loose or wiggle out, for some reason, you'll see that light then goes off. As you see here, our display is going to indicate, in percentage, how of the gain that we've got set we're actually using.

The boost adjusts how aggressively your brakes come onto to your trailer, depending on the size of your trailer and the weight you are hauling. Now we'll go ahead and hook our trailer up and test out our brake controller. We don't have a trailer plugged, in so it'll be no connection.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 GMC Sierra
Alright today on this 2005 GMC Sierra, we are going to install part number 90885, the Prodigy P2 brake controller and part number 3015-P, the brake controller adapter. First step that we need to do is to remove this cover for access to the port that is behind here. So we will undo this nut and pop the cover off. We will take our cord and just plug it into place. Moving on, we will reinstall the cover and then put the nut back into place. Alright next we will go ahead and install our brake controller bracket and we are going to do that on a sheet metal at the bottom of the dash here.
Today we are going to be installing a brake controller on this 2008 GMC Sierra. The part number is 5520, along with the 7-way replacement socket for the GM products, part number PK11916. We are going to start in the rear, installing the 7-Pole replacement socket. We are back behind the bumper here and if you can see this unit here is actually the 7-pole factory socket that we are going to be plugging into. So we want to go ahead and disconnect this off of the knockout that goes into the bumper. We are back on the outside of the bumper here and this knockout here is actually going to be removed. This is where the PK11916 is going to be put in place of. Now that the knockout is removed, we want to go ahead and put the replacement socket in there. It just slides in and you want to line up the notches and just rotate it and it locks right into place. I am going to take the socket that we removed from the backside of the knockout earlier and plug it into the back of the 7-way here.
