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.

I received the Pollak Circuit Breaker in good timing. The mounting bracket was mounted at a 90 degree angle from how it was advertised, but there was still plenty of room on my camper trailer frame to mount it. It works great! Fixed my converter for $10. including shipping.

I INSTALLED THIS IN PLACE OF ORIGINAL CIRCUIT BREAKER, ON OUR 2015 NASH 24H TRAVEL TRAILER. THE ORIGINAL TOOK IN WATER AND FAILED. I MOUNTED THIS POLLAK CIRCUIT BREAKER INSIDE A 6" LONG PIECE OF 1 1/2" ANGLE, AND IT WORKS PERFECTLY FOR THE SITUATION. THANKS VERY MUCH

  • Parts Needed to Install a Prodigy P2 Brake Controller on a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    No plug-in brake controller wiring is available for your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but luckily the P2 brake controller # 90885 includes a pigtail that you can use to hard wire the unit to your vehicle. White: Ground, attached to the vehicle negative battery terminal. Black: 12v lead, attached to the vehicle positive battery terminal with a 20amp or 30amp circuit breaker, parts # PK54520 or # PK54530 respectively. You would use the 20amp breaker for a trailer with 2 to 4 brakes, or...

  • Installing a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2012 Dodge Caravan with Tow Package
    I spoke with a colleague who worked at Chrysler and he stated that they do not put the trailer hitch and 7-Way wiring on the Grand Caravan at the factory. That is something that the dealer installs. In any event here is what you will need to do. The brake controller will need to be hardwired into the vehicle. The white wire on the brake controller will need to get connected directly to the negative terminal on the vehicle battery. The black wire will need to connect to a 30 amp circuit...

  • No Power to Brake Controller on a 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers part # 3070-P that you referenced is currently listed as a fit for a 2006 - 2018 Honda Ridgeline. The 2019 model year has not yet been confirmed (August 2018) which might be why you are having issues. The pins may or may not have carried over to the next model year. The fuse that will supply power to a brake controller on a 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a 20 amp circuit in the number 3 position on the driver's side under hood...

  • Can Optronics Clear Tractor, Utility Light # TL10CB be Used on a 24 Volt System
    If the batteries on your tractor are connected with one grounded to the chassis and the positive going to the negative of the next battery then you can connect a 12 volt light on a 24 volt system. The power wire for the light will need to be connected to the wire that is between the 2 batteries like in the picture I have included. We also recommend using a circuit breaker in line on the power wire leading to the light, # PK54530.

  • 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...

  • Installing an Aftermarket Brake Controller on a 2011 Volvo XC90 with Factory Brake Controller
    From the research I did it is possible that on your 2011 Volvo XC90, that the brake output pin located in the 5:00 position, if looking at the 7-Way, is actually connected to a dedicate brake light circuit. In order to install an aftermarket controller, you will need to follow these steps: First, use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 if needed to verify that there is voltage on that pin when you step on the brakes. If not, then see below for the second installation method. The wire on the...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK
    Your 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK does not have a plug-in brake controller port under the dash so wiring in a controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 will require hardwiring. We offer a complete installation kit # ETBC7 that includes all the parts needed, including a 7-way. Although you have a 7-way socket now, its not a bad idea to have a spare on hand. The kit includes the duplex wiring to bring brake and 12V power signals to your trailer connector, and circuit breakers and connectors to install...

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Factory 7-way Trailer Connector On 2015 Volkswagen Touareg Not Having 12v Power
    From my research it looks like there is a fuse missing or blown in your 2015 Volkswagen Touareg TDI causing the 12v auxiliary power pin to not have the power needed to power your Curt Echo Wireless # C51180. I was not able to find the specific fuse, but it should be in the engine bay fuse box. It did see some reports that the 12v power pin was actually not connected any fuses, in which cause you would need to use # 10-1-1 with a 30 amp circuit breaker # PK54530 to run from the 1 o'clock...

  • 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!

  • 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 attaches...

  • Troubleshooting Power Issues on the Hopkins Agility Electric Brake Controller
    It sounds like there is either no power going to the black power wire on the Hopkins Agility Brake Controller, # HM47295, or the power wire is connected to the wrong circuit. I would recommend using a circuit tester, like part # PTW2993, to test the black wire coming from the brake controller. You should have 12-volt power at all times going to the brake controller from the vehicle battery. If you do not get a constant signal, then either the black power wire is not connected to a 12-volt...

  • Brake Controller Wiring Functions and Where They Need to Install
    The generic wiring guide in question just tells you the functions of the wires: white is ground, black is 12-volt power in (this is the wire that gets the circuit breaker), red is input from the brake switch, and blue is output to the trailer brakes. The white ground wire needs to be attached to the negative battery terminal. No other location is sufficient enough. The black wire attaches to the positive battery terminal via the circuit breaker although I recommend a 30-amp breaker, #...

  • Installation for 2009 Honda Pilot with Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring 7-Way
    The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Cobntroller, part # 90885 is our most popular controller because of its ease to install and use. If you have the factory towing package on your 2009 Honda Pilot and have the port under the dash you can use the adapter like part # 3070-P. You can locate the vehicle’s electric brake control harness. The harness will be located underneath the dash and left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the brake pedal. There will be a 4-pin connector...

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2004 Chevy Blazer
    Since your 2004 Chevy Blazer does not have any type of trailer connector you will first need to install a 4-Way flat connector, # 18252. Then you can use the 4 and 7-Way installation kit, # ETBC7, which comes with everything you will need to maintain the 4-Way and add a 7-Way. It also includes components to hardwire in a brake controller. Adding a 4-Way first makes it easier to install the 7-Way so that is the main reason you would install it first. If you decide you need a brake controller...

  • Is a 2008 Fleetwood Bounder on Workhorse W22 Chassis Pre-Wired for a Brake Controller
    I believe that there is wiring located up under the dash and to the left of the steering column on the 2008 Workhorse W22 chassis that is for a brake controller. Look for a bundle of wires held together with a white tag. The tag shows the functions of the wires. If that wire bundle is not present on your Bounder then the brake controller will have to be hardwired in. You would need a 30 amp circuit breaker, # PK54530, wire # 10-2-1 sold by the foot, and some additional # 10-1-1 wire sold...

  • Troubleshooting Redarc Brake Controller That Shuts Down Periodically Then Re-Sets
    If your Redarc trailer brake controller, such as their Tow-Pro Elite # RED44FR, shuts down after a short period of towing but then reactivates after a 10-minute rest, there are a few different potential causes you can investigate. One is that the unit is losing its ground connection to the vehicle battery. This could be a loose wire or connector. Another (more likely) possibility is that there is a short-circuit somewhere in the brake controller power circuit that is tripping the circuit...

  • Parts Needed to Add a 7-Way and Wiring for a Brake Controller on a 2008 Nissan Frontier
    Because your 2008 Nissan Frontier did not come with a factory tow package, it is not completely wired to accept a plug and play type of 7-Way or brake controller. But not to worry, installing one will not be as difficult as you might think. I am not sure which 4-Way to 7-Way adapter you are using, but we recommend the installation kit # ETBC7 that comes with an adpater of its own. What you can do, instead of purchasing this whole kit, is to get all the parts you will need, minus the adapter. You...

After the 4-Way is installed or if there is already one on the trailer, you will need a 4 and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. I have included some links that will help explain this installation. You will definitely need some extra duplex wire, # 10-2-1, probably another 20 feet or more (sold in increments...

  • Towing a Trailer with Electric Brakes with a Semi Tractor with Air Brakes
    To tow your trailer that uses an RV style 7-way blade style connector with your semi that has a 7-pin connector, you need to construct an adapter that will also combine the brake signal into the right and left directional signal pins. This can be done by using a female 7-pin socket # PK11720 to accept the plug from the semi, a tail light converter # 119178 and a female 7-way RV blade-style socket # PK12-707E. The converter would be wired in between both sockets to combine the brake light...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Power Wire on 2000 Chevy 1500 with Tow Package
    With no power to the black power wire on your brake controller, I recommend starting with your owners manual to see if there is a 12V fuse that could be the issue. I've attached an article to assist. If the fuse isn't the issue, then you can use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to probe that wire every few feet as you trace it for a short. Replace wire as needed with # 10-1-1 sold by the foot. If you want to bypass this, you can run the # 10-1-1 wire from the positive battery terminal,...
