Video Transcript for Hopkins Brake Controller HM47855 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number HM47735. This is the Hopkins plug-in simple brake control wiring adapter. This unit is going to fit the Ford Super Duty vehicles. To see if this fits your particular model and year, you can refer to the vehicle fit guide located right here on our website. This adapter is designed to simplify the installation of your Hopkins electric brake controller. It simply is going to connect your Hopkins brake controller to your vehicle's factory tow package. The flat plug right here is going to be inserted in the back of your electric brake controller. This plug right here is a custom fit plug, that fits into the factory installed port under your dashboard. One of the great things about this adapter is that it does not require any cutting or splicing of the wires for installation.

All you have to do is plug it into the ports and then you're set to go. This does work with a variety of Hopkins brake controllers that have the female connector on the back of the controller. Today, I'm going to show you the agility. This is the port that I'm talking about right here. If you have a controller that has a port that looks like this, then this would be a fit for you. Really simple connection.

All's you have to do is plug the two pieces together. Push it until you hear it snap into position and then it's fully connected. To disconnect, all you have to do is lift up on the tab, wiggle the connections until they disconnect from one another. The amount of wiring we're going to have between the plugs is going to measure 36 inches. They're going to be taped at multiple points along the wiring. That's going to insure that the wires stay together and that they don't loosely hang by your pedals or behind the dash of your vehicle. That's going to do it for our review of part number HM47735.

This is the Hopkins plug-in simple brake control wiring adapter. .

  • How to Install a Hopkins Impulse Brake Controller on a 2008 Ford F-350 with ITBC
    The Plug-In Simple Brake Control Connector part # HM47855 will allow you to install the Hopkins Impulse on your 2008 Ford F-350 without having to cut or splice any wires. However, in order for the controller to work you will need to go to your local Ford dealer and have the factory integrated brake controller turned off. It can always be turned back on should you remove the aftermarket controller.

    The Hopkins Plug-In Simple Brake Control Connector # HM47855 referenced in your question is compatible with 2008-2011 Ford F-250/350 trucks. This is why the pins are not matching up with the factory port on your 2016 Ford Expedition.

  • Which Hopkins Brake Controller Wiring Harness for 2015 Ford Flex
    Ford used two different connectors on the 2015 Flex for some reason. You'll need to locate the connector under the dash and examine the wires entering the plug from the rear. If these wires are all in one row, you'll need the # HM47855 wiring adapter harness. If 3 wires are in one row and the remaining white wire is in the other row, you'll need the # HM47845 wiring adapter harness. I've provided a photo showing the difference between the two harnesses.

  • 2008 Ford F-250 Will Not Start or Crank After Installing Hopkins Brake Controller
    First let's make sure you are using the proper brake controller wiring harness for your 2008 Ford F-250. For a Hopkins brake controller you should be using # HM47855. It would not hurt to make sure that it is also plugged into the correct plug on your truck. I am fairly certain there is only one though but it never hurts to make sure. If your truck came with a brake controller pigtail from Ford and you hardwired the controller to it then the wire colors would not match up between the controller...

  • Brake Controller Installation Harness Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-53 Motorhome
    According to the Q-206 document that was released by Ford the correct brake controller harness needed for a 2013 Ford F53 chassis would be the # 3034-P if you were installing a Tekonsha brake controller like the P2 # 90885. So then for a Hopkins brake controller like part # HM47294 the correct harness would be the # HM47855. The port to plug in a brake controller is up under the dash behind the instrument cluster. It is not easy to get to but it is there.

  • How Does the Hopkins Agility Trailer Brake Controller Install on a 2003 Western Alpine RV
    The Hopkins Agility brake controller # HM47294 does come with a harness so that you can hardwire it into a vehicle.

    If your Penske truck was built on a Ford E-350 chassis then it is possible that it does have a plug to plug in a brake controller, though additional components will be needed to complete the installation. You will need to check behind an access panel on the center of the dash but more on the passenger side. Pry the panel off gently. The connector should be behind this panel. If so then you would use brake controller wiring harness # HM47855 for use with Insight controller. Since your...
