Video Transcript for etrailer Brake Controller BRK-ELECKIT Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a power wire kit for electric trailer brake controllers. The power wire kit lets you run power to your trailer brake controller. This is designed for use with vehicles that don't have power going to the built in brake controller port. With this kit, you get a 30 amp circuit breaker, which protects your vehicle's electrical system, by preventing overloads. It also provides protection for vehicles towing trailers that have up to eight brake assemblies. You also get your 10' long 12 gauge primary wire, which connects your brake controller to your vehicle's battery.

This is featuring the general purpose thermoplastic installation, which is highly resistant to acids, gasoline, oil, grease, and most industrial solvents. So, all that to say is that this is 10' long, 12 gauge primary wire that's going to be protected, and it is suitable for automotive uses.Then, you get your ring terminals. You're going to get three ring terminals. Two are the same. One's a little different.

These ring terminals attach to the wires so you can easily connect the leads to the circuit breaker and battery posts. So, you get two connectors that are 3/16" ring terminals, and then one connector that is a 5/16" ring terminal. And then, you also get 10 11" long cable ties that let you secure all your loose wiring, getting it up and out of the way, and protected. You also get two self-drilling, or self-tapping, screws to ground the wiring in your electrical connection. That's going to do it for today's look at the power wire kit for electric trailer brake controllers..

  • Adding a 7-Way Connector and Brake Controller to a 2018 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way
  • I will be happy to get your 2018 Ford F-150 set up with a 7-Way trailer connector and a brake controller. The method for doing so that requires the fewest parts is to hardwire in the brake controller/7-Way. Since your truck already has a factory 4-Way connector you will just need # ETBC7 to add a 7-Way, retain the 4-Way, and have the parts needed to install a brake controller as well as run a 12 volt hot lead. If you do not already have a brake controller picked out I recommend the...

  • Recommended Air Brake Controller Compatible With Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator
  • We have exactly what you need. You will want the Hayes Air Actuated Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional # HA100400C which is the only Air to Electric brake controller we carry that is compatible with electric over hydraulic brake actuators. For this installation I also recommend the Power Wire Kit for Electric Trailer Brake Controllers - 12 Gauge # BRK-ELECKIT and the Air Line Hose 1/4" # RM450700 sold by the foot. The similar Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way
  • The brake controller I strongly recommend for your 2018 Ford F-150 is the Prodigy P3 # 90195 because of how easy it is to use and how effective it is at supplying the appropriate amount of braking power to your trailer. The P3 activates your trailer's brakes immediately in proportion to your F-150's brakes and offers three different boost levels so you can adjust the amount of power to your brakes as you see fit. It levels automatically, has constant diagnostic checks, contains safeguards...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150
  • To install our very popular P3 brake controller part # 90195 in your 2018 Ford F-150 will only require the correct install harness. For that you'd want the # 22292 which is a confirmed fit and simply plugs in under the dash. Some versions of your truck though don't have power ran to the brake controller port and would require you to also install the # BRK-ELECKIT. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Location of Brake Controller Connector for an Aftermarket Controller on a 2018 Ford F-150
  • The location that you would connect an adapter like part # 22292 to your 2018 Ford F-150 for installing a brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 is behind and to the left of the center console area. If you remove the front panel that is directly under your steering wheel you can access the plug this way (see attached photo). Some models of the 2018 F-150 don't have power running to this brake controller port. If this is the case for you then you would need the wiring kit # BRK-ELECKIT...

  • Installation of Brake Controller and Brake Controller Wiring to Added 7-Way in 2018 Ford F-150
  • For your 2018 Ford F-150 I don't recommend the Curt Venturer brake Controller # C51110 but it will install in the same way as any other brake controller and for that installation you have a couple different options. If when you installed the 7-way you grabbed the factory wiring for your 12V and brake controller from near your driver's side wheel well, then I recommend using the wiring harness # C51436 which will connect to the factory port under your dash. Some models don't have the brake...

  • Can a Trailer Brake Controller be Turned Off
  • Modern brake controllers such as the P2 # 90885 will go into a power saving mode after about 15 minutes of inactivity. In this mode the controller will only draw a few milliamps of power. At that rate it would take months of the vehicle just sitting for a brake controller to drain the vehicle battery. If it does not go into power saving mode that means that something is drawing power on the brake circuit. The most likely culprit is corrosion in or on the vehicle side trailer connector....
