I ordered this controller and additional parts from Laser. Before committing to buying, I asked him many questions. He answered them all in about a clear and concise way as possible while presenting a picture of how to install the device. It arrived today and I haven't started, but he also emphasized that I could call if I ran into any difficulties. I'll follow up when the job is complete. My experience in this context could not have been better. Michael 696589

Comments
You might consider relocating the breaker. If its close enough to the hood spring that you had to shorten the studs, theres a chance that on rough pavement the spring could still contact the studs, which could short out the circuit.

I had a couple of corroded breakers on my 12 year old travel trailer that caused a lack of 12v power from the house battery to the 12v system components. The replacements solved the problem. I have purchased from etrailer before and I've always been completely satisfied with the products. 488945

It's a circuit breaker! We got this wire our small teardrop for underway charging. I put it inline after the relay/solenoid, wired so we wouldn't exceed reasonable current flow in 10ga. wiring. I don't think it's ever tripped, except when I loaded it for testing. Would use again. 442299

  • Is a Circuit Breaker Needed for a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2003 Chevy Silverado Duramax 3500
    If the brake controller is connected to the 2003 Chevy Silverado tow package port (to the left of the brake pedal, second port from the left, top row) using Tekonsha Wire Replacement, # 3015-P, or a similar harness, and the truck came with a factory 7-Way, then the connection is already fused/circuit protected, so the brake controller will not need another circuit breaker. It is possible that a 7-Way was added later and the wiring and circuit breaker you see are related. But, the 2003...

  • What Amperage Circuit Breaker Should be Used for Brake Controller Install
    That will depend on the amount of brake axles your trailer has. . The 20 amp breaker like # 9506P is for 1 and 2 axle brakes, and the 30 amp like part # 38630 is for 3 and 4 axle brakes

  • Trailer Dome Lights Do Not Work on a Haulmark Trailer Towed By a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado
    The first step to troubleshooting your trailer dome lights is to determine how the lights are wired. If your trailer has a 4-way connector, then they will be connected to the running light circuit. If your trailer has a 7-way connector, then the dome lights will be connected to a 12 volt auxiliary power circuit coming from the trailer connector. If your trailer has a 4-way connector and the running lights on the trailer work, then there is an issue with the connection between the dome...

  • Where to Install Circuit Breaker on Trailer
    Generally a circuit breaker should be installed close to the power source. On a trailer with on-board battery power breakers are best installed near the batteries and each circuit should have a breaker of the appropriate amperage value for the device on that circuit. For example, in a tow vehicle that has a common 7-way wiring setup the 40-amp circuit breaker for the +12V power feed to the trailer is usually mounted to the firewall in the engine compartment and typically this circuit...

  • 12 Volt Circuit On 1999 Dodge Ram 7-Way Trailer Connector Does Not Charge Break Away Battery
    You can use a circuit tester like # 40376 to test the 12 volt circuit on the 7-Way to see if it is has power. If it is not and the 7-Way is factory it might just be a blown fuse to that circuit. Use the owners manual to find the location of the tow package fuses to check them. Or you can get about 20 feet of # 10-1-1 wire and attach one end to the back of the 7-Way in the 11:00 position. Route the other end under the truck, avoiding areas that may pinch or burn the wire, and up into...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Controller with No Signal on Black 12V Power Wire
    Typically for brake controllers, the black wire provides 12V power from battery to the brake controller. Since you said there is no signal on the black wire going to the controller, this tells us that there is something wrong with the wire or circuit breaker and means the controller is not getting any power. If the controller has no power, then it cannot send a brake signal back to the trailer brakes. Since this wire comes directly from the battery, there should always be signal on the...

  • Can a 30 Amp Fuse be Used Instead of a Circuit Breaker When Installing a Trailer Brake Controller
    You can use a 30 amp fuse if you wanted to. The difference is that a circuit breaker like # 38630 or # PK54530 will automatically reset should there be a short or overload. With a fuse you would have to replace it.

  • Replacement 30 Amp In-Line Circuit Breaker - Perpendicular Mount Bracket
    The 30 amp circuit breaker # 38630 is an exact match for your current circuit breaker though it may not have W29 stamped on it. I spoke with Pollak about that designation and is a date code or batch number so you could get one that is completely different from W29.

  • No 12V Power to 7-way connector on 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    I am happy to help you troubleshoot the 12v pin not getting power on the 7-way connector. On some Fords with factory brake controllers, the 12V pin does not show power unless you are testing it with a trailer connected. Please make sure it is a trailer with an on board trailer battery. The truck must sense the load of the battery to activate that circuit. If you have a trailer connected and the 12V pin is still not showing power, you may have a blown or missing fuse in the power distribution...

  • Troubleshooting Interior Lights on Trailer Not Working When Connected to Tow Vehicle
    It's possible that the interior lights on your Lark enclosed trailer are simply exceeding the amperage capacity of the running light circuit on your Escalade. I recommend first verifying the amperage draw needed for the trailer's interior lights to see if this might be the issue. Otherwise it is just a matter of checking the connection from the interior lights to your running lights circuit. Since you know the 4-Way wiring on the trailer is good after testing it with 12V power, you...

  • Should Trailer Circuit Breakers be Protected from Weather
    I wouldn't recommend leaving any electrical connection, including the ones made on a circuit breaker like part # 38630 exposed directly to the weather. Exposure to water could cause the circuit to short out. A junction box like part # 38656 provides a excellent weatherproof place for electrical connections like joining a trailer connector such as # H20046 to the lighting and brake circuits of a trailer, but it would also work extremely well for protecting circuit breakers from the...

  • Is the 12 Volt Circuit on Tow Packages Typically Hot or Live?
    That's a great question! It all comes down to the manufacturer some models will have a constantly active 12 Volt pin in the 7 way and some will only come on when the ignition is keyed on. Sometimes a vehicle will have the constant power option but doesn't have a fuse in place to send it through so the first step is to check the owners manual and make sure that fuse is in place and in good shape. If it is and still no power the next steps tell you how to fix this. If you have a vehicle...

  • Troubleshooting 7-Way 12 Volt ACC Circuit Not Functioning on a 2010 Chevy Silverado
    First thing you want to do is test the 12 volt accessory circuit of the 7-way on your truck with a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to determine if the truck is at fault. This will be the pin in the 1:00 position. If there is no voltage there and you made the connections under the hood of your truck the fuse or relay is most likely bad on your truck and needs to be replaced.

  • Does Circuit Breaker part # 38630 Need to Be Grounded
    The circuit breaker part # 38630 that you referenced does not require any grounding. If you wanted to zip-tie it out of the way you would not need to worry about attaching it to a metal surface so that it would be grounded.

  • How to Power Trailer Dome Light when Trailer is Not Plugged Into Tow Vehicle
    If the lights inside the trailer, and other 12 volt accessories, run exclusively off of the 12 volt circuit from the 7-Way trailer connector you will need to mount a battery on the trailer to power them when the trailer is not plugged into the tow vehicle. The way this would work is that the 12 volt wire from the 7-Way would go to the positive terminal on the battery. Your 12 volt accessories including the dome light would also need to connect to the positive battery terminal. That...

  • Is a Circuit Breaker Required when Installing a Brake Controller on a 2008 Cadillac Escalade
    The short answer is neither. You will not need to use a circuit breaker when installing a brake controller on your 2008 Cadillac Escalade because it already has the wiring and fuse locations for the brake controller. The 2 wires under the hood that attach to the studs at the front of the power distribution box are factory wires. Fuses will be installed (if not present already) in the locations closest to those studs. I have linked the video you mentioned and a help article explaining...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Controller Working with Brake Pedal but Not with Manual Override
    If you are getting the decimal on the Reese Brakeman display when applying the brake pedal but not with the manual override lever, it is an indication that the controller is not receiving power. The LED decimal is showing up with the brake pedal because it is getting power/indication from the brake light switch. But when the manual override lever is used, power needs to come through the controller's black wire, which should be connected to the truck's battery via 30 amp circuit breaker...

  • Cirucit Breaker Ratings for Installing Brake Controller on 2006 Toyota RAV4
    When installing a brake controller on a vehicle that is not factory wired, we typically use a 40 amp inline circuit breaker (part # 9510) to protect the 12 Volt accessory circuit that runs from the battery to the trailer connector. The power supply circuit for the brake controller itself is protected by either a 20 or a 30 amp inline circuit breaker (part # 9506P, # 38630). The installation instructions for your brake controller will state which breaker is needed. I suppose the other...

  • Recommended Brake Controller for Motorhome with Air Brakes
    There will still be a stop light switch signal to splice into on a motorhome with air brakes so you can use any standard electric brake controller.

  • Cost Effective Wiring To Install 7-Way For Curt Echo Controller on 2008 BMW X5 With Battery in Trunk
    The Curt Trailer Connector Adapter part # C57672 can certainly be used to install a 7-Way on the 2008 BMW X5 to use the Curt Echo Wireless Brake Controller part # C51180 instead of the kit part #ETBC7L. I recommend to use the Curt trailer connector part # C57672 and the Power Wire Kit for Electric Trailer Brake Controllers part # BRK-ELECKIT because it has a shorter amount (10 feet) of 12 gauge wire since your battery is in rear cargo area. This kit also comes with all of the components...

  • How Many Trailer Brakes Should be Used with a 20 Amp Circuit Breaker or 30 Amp Circuit Breaker
    The recommendation for 2 to 4 brakes is a 20 amp circuit breaker, # PK54520, and for 6 to 8 brakes a 30 amp circuit breaker, # 38630, just as you have stated. Usually, you would go with the smallest sized circuit breaker for the system being used. This is so if there is a problem, it can be caught right away. If you plan on towing trailers with 2 to 4 brakes and trailers with 6 to 8 brakes, it would be best to go with the 30 amp circuit breaker as the 20 amp circuit breaker would not...

The controller has an easy-to-read LCD display and provides user-friendly diagnostics to alert you of any issues. I have attached a review video of this brake controller for you.

  • Brake Controller Installation on 2008 Grand Cherokee Diesel
    According to my contact at Tekonsha, there is not any special procedure or considerations for a brake controller installation on Diesel equipped models versus the gas-engined counterparts. To install your brake controller, you will look for a light green wire bundled up under the dash or behind the drivers side kick panel that would be next to your left foot while driving. This wire will connect the brake controller output (blue wire) to the 7-way. The power (black wire), ground (white...

You would not make a connection in the rear of the vehicle. The wire would be located under the dash, near the emergency brake pedal.

    To answer your first question, it is possible to splice the brake controller's 12 volt power wire into the 12 volt power wire you have attached to the vehicle's battery to charge the trailer's battery but this is certainly not recommend.

    As a first step, you would need to select a brake controller. I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. The P2 is extremely reliable and easy to use, which makes it one of our all-time best selling brake controllers. Most of the Chevy trucks of that era had a blue and an orange or red wire ran along the frame rail for installing the controller. At the rear of the vehicle, they usually terminate on the end of the drivers side frame rail or above the spare tire. In the engine...
