The kit was missing the inline butt connector for splicing into the harness at the brake controller. The installation video says the butt connector is included in the kit. Fortunately I have butt connectors in my personal parts stash so I could finish the install. 704818

  • Solution for Powering Brake Controller Install of 2019 Ford F150 with Factory Tow Package
    This is a common issue for installing a brake controller in the 2019 Ford F-150 and the easy solution is to install the part # BRK-ELECKIT which bypasses the very mysterious brake controller power wire issue your truck has and allows your brake controller to draw power directly from the battery. Basically you cut out the black wire from the harness you have now and connect it the wire of this kit and then wire it directly to the battery with the included ring terminals. This bypasses the...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Will the Curt Echo Brake Controller Work On a 2019 Ford F-150
    The Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller part # C51180 will work with a 2019 Ford F-150. However, the 2015+ Ford F-Series Pick-Ups have what is called a SmartTow feature that prevents power from supplying the trailer connector most of the time. Therefore, in order to use the Curt Echo on a 2016 Ford F-150 you will need to run a dedicated power wire from the battery to the trailer connector and all you will need for this is the Power Wire Kit for Electric Trailer Brake Controllers part...

  • 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...

  • Does Computer of 2019 Ford F-150 Need Flashed to Install Aftermarket Brake Controller?
    If you install the Prodigy P3 # 90195 you will not need to have the computer flashed. In most models it will simply plug in using the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers # 22292, however some do not have power run to the brake controller port under the dash. If this is the case, we have wiring kit # BRK-ELECKIT which you can use to run power to the brake controller port. I've attached a video to help with all of this.

  • Can I Use Deka Jacketed 10 Gauge Wire to Run Hot Lead For Curt Echo From Hopkins 7-Way Plug
    It sounds like you are half way there! I was able to find your account and I believe you are using the Curt Echo part # C51180 Blue tooth controller that plugs in line with the 7-way you will need to extend the 12V power from the Hopkins Endurance Multi-Tow 4-Way Flat to 7-Way RV Trailer Adapter w/ 4-Way Vehicle End Plug part # HM47180 with 20 feet of 12 gauge wire to the battery via a 30 amp circuit breaker like what comes in the kit part # BRK-ELECKIT. Then you can ground the Hopkins...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Travel Trailer Jerking Issue on 2018 Ford F150 with Hensley Arrow System & New Axle
    With your travel trailer jerking right or left at random, I can only tell you what to look for but can't diagnose your issue. I am not at all physically familiar with the Hensley system but from what research I have done it seems like the system could be the issue. The description of the unit in their videos show that the impact on the trailer for wind is directly transferred to the tow vehicle to help absorb the sway. The theory for this is good, but if you have a shorter wheel base...

  • 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.

  • Can A Tekonsha Brake Controller Be Installed On a 24 Volt Electrical System
    Yes, it is possible to install a Tekonsha brake controller like the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller part # TK90160 which is what I recommend on a 24 volt system. In order to do so you will need to obtain a 24 volt relay from your local automotive parts store and then some various primary wire, circuit breakers, and wire connectors like what is included with the Power Wire Kit for Electric Trailer Brake Controllers part # BRK-ELECKIT. I have attached a diagram for you to assist...

  • Tekonsha TK90160 Primus Brake Controller Not Powering Up When Installed in 2020 Ford F-150.
    For whatever reason, some F-150 models will have the plug in the dash for the brake controller, but the 12 volt power feed to that connector hasn't been connected. You may need to add a 30A fuse in the distribution box under the hood, in location # 24. If location # 24 is NOT pinned, you'll need to run your own wire to the controller. We offer a kit, part # BRK-ELECKIT that will correct this. I've provided an install link for a different controller, but the procedure for your # TK90160...

  • ETBC7L Without 7-Way for Autowbrake Brake Controller
    There is a kit that has exactly what you need with the hardware without the 7-way of the RV Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L. What you need is the Power Wire Kit for Electric Trailer Brake Controllers # BRK-ELECKIT. This has everything you are looking for, minus the 7-way, so you can install the Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001. In regards to the power wire, it will not charge the trailer battery, but it will maintain the battery's charge while you are towing.
