Product received on time. About 5 days since I live in NW. Electric brake installation went very good after watching install video. My trailer had a four way flat cable. I converted it to 6 way because my 2007 Winnebago View on 2006 Dodge Sprinter had the 6 pin. After hooking everything up my brake lights didn't work. The running and blinkers did work. I did a bit of research online. My View has a 3 filament rear light system meaning the brake and blinker have their own circuit. My trailer and most out there combine the brake and blinker onto one circuit. So basically it's a 2 filament system. Bottom line: going from a 3 to 2 filament system you need a "tail light converter". I added the converter into my RV at the hitch 6pin round connector. It was wired the standard way as 6 pin go. The brake output wire labeled X or S on connector was removed and added to brake output line of converter. My converter had 5 pins on input and four on the output. White being ground on both side, brown is running lights, yellow as left turn and green as right turn. The converter basically combines the brake light and blinker functions onto one line. Once I installed the brake controller this wire run from controller to hitch. I connected this side to S or X where I removed the brake light wire earlier. So now my electric brakes work on my trailer as do the brake lights. 216202

  • How to Hardwire a Brake Controller on a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
    There is no turn signal input on an electric brake controller so I am a bit confused as to what you are asking. On an electric brake controller there will usually be four wires; one for power, ground, brake output, and brake signal. The power wire (usually black) will need to be ran to the vehicle's battery with a 30 amp circuit breaker like part # PK54530 placed 6" from the positive terminal. The ground wire (usually white) will need to be ran to a clean bare metal surface or the negative...

  • Replacement 30 Amp Fuse Holder for Husky 3K Electric Trailer Jack
    The Husky 3K powered trailer jacks use a 30 amp fuse. What I recommend instead of replacing the fuse and wiring is to use a circuit breaker, # PK54530, so that it will auto-reset. Then you just need some 10 gauge wire, # 10-1-1, sold by the foot. Or for a fuse holder you can use # SWC9545 with a 30 amp mini fuse obtained locally. This is a 12 gauge wire but given the short distance from the jack to the battery this small piece of 12 gauge wire will work perfectly fine. This will not...

  • Does a 30 Amp Auto-Reset Breaker Have to be Mounted or Can it be Loose
    You don't have to mount the circuit breaker such as # PK54530 if you don't want to. It would prevent it from moving around if it were mounted but won't affect how it works. So your plan of leaving it "loose" and wrapping it up in electrical tape will be fine.

  • After Replacing 30 Amp Circuit Breakers, Circuit on Trailer is Not Working
    If the item drawing the power is shorted or otherwise drawing more than 30 amps of power, the circuit breaker will trip and not allow power to go though it. So, you will also want to make sure that you do not have any wiring issues drawing too much power on the breaker.

  • How to Determine Circuit Breaker Amp Rating for a 2018 Venture Sonic 200VML
    I can help you figure out what your circuit breakers are rated for but unfortunately I don't know what circuit breakers came on your 2018 Venture Sonic 200VML. I can say that we typically recommend using either a 20A or 30A circuit breaker for the 12V power so if your manual says 30A then I would tend to lean that way. You can be 100% certain by disconnecting all of your wiring and removing those covers on the circuit breakers you should then be able to tell the rating as the circuit...

  • Carpet Product Suitable for Lining Fender Wells of Enclosed Trailer
    We do not custom-make any products here at etrailer but we do have CE Smith Deluxe Marine-Grade Carpeting # CE11330 which comes in a 12-foot roll that is 11-inches wide. This item is very close to your required dimensions so two rolls should get you covered (sorry, couldn't resist). We also offer this in charcoal grey # CE11372.

  • No Power at 12 Volt Circuit on 2017 Ram 1500 7-Way Trailer Connector
    For starters, I would first check to see that you are testing the correct pin. The correct pin that should house the 12 volt circuit on your 2017 Ram 1500's 7-way trailer receptacle is located in the 1 o'clock position (see photo). The vehicle will need to be running for this circuit to show power. The next thing I would check is fuse box, in particular a pink 30 amp fuse located in the F30 position. If none of these option work for you then you will need to begin tracing the black...

  • Adding 12 Volt Power to the 2005 Dodge Dakota
    What you need to do, assuming you do not have the factory 7-way is run a wire to the battery through a circuit breaker such as # PK54530. If you have the factory 7-way and are having an issue with the fuse box you will need to have the fuse box looked at by a mechanic. You can test your 7-way by running the power wire to an accessory 12 volt to see if there is any problem with the wiring itself. If you get power that way you know there is an issue with the truck's wiring that you will need...

  • Troubleshooting No Trailer Running Lights with 2017 Ram 1500
    If the trailer running lights circuit isn't active on the 7-Way of your 2017 Ram 1500 then you will want to check the 20 amp blue fuse located in the F29 position inside the power distribution box under the hood. The online version of the owner's manual for your Ram shows this fuse as being in charge of this particular circuit. If replacing the fuse does not resolve the issue please let me know and I will be happy to look into this further.

  • No Running Lights On Boat Trailer But All Other Lights Work
    The first thing you will want to do is test the running light pin on your trailer side trailer connector. If you don't have power here then you know you have a bad fuse most likely. If you do have power on the running light pin for the trailer side trailer connector then you can move onto the trailer. The first thing I would check is the ground for each taillight but if this still does not resolve your issue then you will need to trace the running light wire from each light up to the trailer...

  • Can Curt Echo Brake Controller be Installed in 4-Way/7-Way Adapter and Still Work
    That's actually a really good question! All the Curt Echo # C51180 needs to operate properly are the basic trailer lighting functions (found on a typical 4-Way), and then 12V power. If you already have a 4-Way/7-Way adapter like part # C57672 then all you'll need to do is run a length of 10 Gauge Wire # 10-1-1 to a 30A Circuit Breaker # PK54530 and then to the positive battery post on your tow vehicle. If you don't already have an adapter then you can just get the Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L...

  • Replacement Circuit Breaker for Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack 500188
    The circuit breaker that is used in the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500188 that you referenced is rated for 30 amps and has an automatic reset feature. To replace it you can use the Pollak # PK54530. I reached out to my contact at Bulldog who said that there isn't anything special about the circuit breaker so the Pollak one will work perfectly!

  • Replacement Brake Release Handle Needed for the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247
    Yes, the tool for the brake release is included with the part # 87639 that has the replacement crank handle as well. Both of these are for the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247. The only thing special about the included circuit breaker is that it has some wiring included with it for easy splicing. Any 30 amp circuit breaker that you would find at a local electrical/home improvement store, like part # PK54530, is perfectly acceptable. If the jack hasn't been used very much...

  • Current Capacity of Hopkins 12-Volt Power Socket with Power Wire and Fuse Assembly HM55115
    The Hopkins 12-Volt Power Socket # HM55115 uses a wire gauge that can safely support up to 20-amps and that is the value of fuse supplied with this kit. I can't recommend using a 30-amp fuse in this item. What I can suggest is making your own 30-amp capable outlet by using a 30-amp auto reset circuit breaker # PK54530, 12V power outlet part # DG6112VP and 10-gauge duplex wire # 10-2-1. You'll also need some ring terminal connectors like # 44-5310A, push-on connectors like # DW05709-1...

  • Connecting a Brake Controller Red Wire on a 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500
    Your 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 may actually have brake controller port or wiring harness that you can use to install a brake controller. I have included a link to a video that may help. It is on a slightly older Sprinter but can be used as a guide. The 2006 to 2018 are part of the same generation. If the van has a third brake light (CHMSL: center high mount stop lamp) and it is the only thing on that fuse you could use it to attach to the red brake controller wire. The white ground...

  • No Power to Factory Brake Controller Adapter Port in 2003 Dodge Ram 2500
    You are correct by checking the fuses first. Even if the 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 has a factory towing package with a 7-way that there may be some fuses missing from under the hood. I would double check the owners manual for all of the fuses and relays that power the factory towing package and their locations. If the appropriate fuses are present and you are not getting power from the vehicle's battery to the port you can bypass the black wire and run your own. Cut the black wire from the...

    You can use the Tekonsha P3, # 90195, on your 2004 International even with air brakes. All the brake controller needs as far as input is a 12 volt power source (from the battery), and a dedicated brake light circuit usually found at the brake light switch above the brake pedal. And you will need a 7-Way trailer connector on the truck. You will need to hardwire the brake controller. The white wire will need to be grounded to the negative battery terminal.

  • Should Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack JET-5000 Have Circuit Breaker on Power Wire
    You can use either a fuse or an auto-reset circuit breaker on the power circuit for the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-5000. Since this unit draws 30-amps with a 1,700-lb load a 30-amp breaker like # PK54530 will allow all needed power to reach the jack. You'll use ring terminals # 44-5310A, 10-gauge duplex wire # 10-2-1 and butt connectors # 05732-2. The copper color post on the breaker goes to the battery.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a Truck with Air Brakes and a Trailer with Electric Brakes
    The trailer brakes work on a separate circuit than the lights. You have a couple of options to control the electric brakes on the trailer. One option is to use an air over electric brake control, # HA100400C. This unit connects to the air brakes on the truck and when the brakes are applied it sends an electric signal back to the trailer brakes. The other option, and what I would do, is to use an electric brake controller like # 90885. For either of these controllers, the red wire...
