Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the REDARC Encapsulated Power Diode for the Tow-Pro Brake Controllers. Now this diode will prevent feedback to ensure correct operation of your REDARC Tow-Pro trailer brake controller and your vehicles brake lights. The diodes designed to fit in the trailer stop lamp feed to support the installation of the Tow-Pro Electric Brake Controller on vehicles inaudible 00:00:25 of the 12 volts may interfere with the vehicle system. So when this is installed correctly, this diode will ensure correct trailer braking and stop lamp operation on the vehicle brakes or the Tow-Pro manual overdrive issues. This is a totally encapsulated construction.

Has nice sealed connections. So when this is plugged in, you can see that it seals all weatherproof. Power draw on this is seven amps. Application voltage is 12 to 24 volts. But that should do it for the review on the REDARC Encapsulated Power Diode for the Tow-Pro Brake Controllers..

I am sure it is a quality product, but not sure I needed it. It was recommended in Q&A's, but my controller works fine without it and some say I did not need it. So maybe I wasted $xx ?


Comments
Thank you for your review. This prevents feedback on the brake signal wiring. Unless you are wiring a separate third brake light, no diodes are needed.

Ask the Experts about this Redarc Accessories and Parts

  • How Does Redarc Encapsulated Power Diode RED34FR Get Wired To 3rd Brake Light?
    There sure is! The Redarc Encapsulated Power Diode for Tow-Pro Brake Controllers # RED34FR you were looking at gets wired as shown in the included diagram. One of the red wires goes to the red brake output wire on your trailer brake controller, the orange wire gets connected to the input wire going from the vehicle wiring to the third brake light, and the other red wire gets connected to the wire going to the third brake light. I included a video of the products mentioned for you...

  • Best Way to Wire the Redarc Brake Controller on 2020 Ford Ranger Without Tow Package
    Thanks for the pictures you sent! It looks like you don't have the right plug under your dash which is due to not having the factory tow package on your 2020 Ford Ranger. That's ok, since there's still a solution to adding brake controller wiring to your truck. Ford USA offers the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # RED44FR with their own wiring kit included so it's confirmed that this controller is compatible with the 2020 Ford Ranger. I talked with Redarc and they explained how to wire your Ranger...

  • Redarc Tow Pro Liberty Install 2019 Ford Ranger
    Yes it will. According to Redarc, Ranger models equipped with the adaptive cruise control can be difficult to obtain a stop lamp signal from. The stop lamp switch will only get input from the driver, not the adaptive cruise. I'm told that instead of the stop lamp switch, the brake signal should be obtained from the CHMSL, (a/k/a the third brake lamp). Also, a diode like # RED34FR will prevent the brake signal from feeding back into the vehicle wiring.

  • Where To Connect Red Wire Of Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty To 2016 Kia Sorento W/ Adaptive Cruise Control
    I would be happy to help! You are correct that on vehicles like your 2016 Kia Sorento you will not want to get the brake light signal directly from the stop light switch. Picking up the signal there will only activate the trailer brakes when you press the brake pedal, and not when the adaptive cruise control you have applies the brakes. Instead to install the Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty # RED24FR you were looking at you will need to route the red wire to the 3rd brake light of your Sorento...
