Installation of Hopkins Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers

Junction BoxBrake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the port that is built into the electric junction box underneath your vehicle's dash. The black box is located to the left of the steering column, just above the carpet. To plug in the adapter, first remove the cover on the box. The adapter plugs into the second slot from the left, on the top row.


To install your electric brake controller, you need to connect the four wires - ground, power, brake switch and brake power - of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If you do not have a harness, or you need a new one, the Hopkins wiring adapter will serve the same purpose.

Video Transcript for Hopkins Brake Controller HM53085 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing Part Number HM53085. This is the Hopkins wiring adapter for electric trailer brake controllers. This fits a variety of Chevrolet and GMC applications. To see if this is going to be a fit for your particular model and year, please use the fit guide located on our website. This is going to be for vehicles equipped with a trailer tow package. The pigtail wiring adapter is going to ease the installation of your electric brake controller. The connector end is going to plug into the electric junction beneath the dash of your vehicle.

This is a custom fit design. The wire ends are going to connect to the wires on your brake controller with butt connectors. The white wire is going to be the ground wire. Your blue wire is going to be for electric brakes. Your black wire is going to be for your battery. The red is going to be for the stock lamp switch.

When wiring and making the connections, you want to be sure to wire by function only because color coding is not standard among all manufacturers. To insure proper installation, it never hurts just to refer to the brake controller's instructions. The overall length of the Hopkins wiring adapter from the base of the plug to the end of the exposed wiring is going to give us a total length of forty-six inches. Then it looks like at about one, two, three different points they have some tape that goes around. That's just going to help secure the wires together and then make sure that your installation is nice and tight and that you don't have a lot of wires hanging down behind the dash of your vehicle. That's going to do it for a review of Part Number HM53085. This is the Hopkins wiring adapter for electric trailer brake controllers.

My purchase of the Hopkins wiring adapter for my electric trailer brakes was just as described. My 2015 GMC Sierra has the towing package but did not have the OEM electric brake controller. I had an older Voyager brake controller and figured I'd just purchase the Hopkins HM53085 as I didn't need wiring with a connector on both ends. The product fit perfectly and was easy to install. Shipping was a little delayed because of the holiday weekend, but the pricing was good and I didn't need it in a hurry. Installed yesterday and hauled 7000 lbs of firewood on my trailer today. Very pleased and will definitely shop etrailer.com if I have any future needs. 293989
