Video Transcript for Review of etrailer - Brake Controller - ETBC6

Today we're taking a look at a Universal Installation Kit for trailer brake controllers. This kit includes the wiring and accessories that are required for installation of a trailer brake controller.Brake controllers are sold separately and are available at etrailer.com. This kit is designed for use on vehicles that have an existing four-way flat trailer connector. This plug right here plugs in to the existing four-way on your vehicle, and then you have a few other connections that need to be made. The butt connectors are already connected to the light blue and red wires, and then you also have a white wire with a ring terminal attached to it. That's gonna be your ground wire.Now, if your vehicle does not already have four-way flat trailer connector installed, the etrailer.com application guide can be used to find the easy-to-install connector that is made specifically for your vehicle.

So with this video, what I really want to do is just simply go over everything that comes with part number ETBC6.You get 25 foot of 10-gauge duplex wire. It's wrapped in an abrasion-resistant covering to protect it. You will need to connect one wire the the blue wire on your brake controller, and then connect one wire to the positive post on the vehicle battery, in conjunction with the included 40-amp circuit breaker.If you drive a crew cab, extended cab with a long bed, cargo van, minivan, or extended-length SUV, I'd go ahead and pick up 10 foot of extra wire. It's gonna make your installation a lot easier for those extended length vehicles. You can purchase that separately with part number ETBCXW.Now this right here is your pre-wired six-way and four-way flat trailer connector.

It has a nice spring-loaded lid, so that automatically shuts. That's gonna keep dirt and moisture away from those terminals. And then right here, we have the cover that goes over the four-way connection point, as well, so it's all protected. But again, this is your pre-wired six-way and four-way flat trailer connector. It mounts easily at the rear of your vehicle with the included mounting bracket and the included mounting hardware.

Again, it features the nice spring-loaded cover that goes over the six-way, and it has a dust cap for the four-way. Those covers are designed to keep dirt and moisture away from the connection points which will prevent rust and corrosion to those terminals.It comes with three circuit breakers, one 20-amp, one 30-amp, and one 40-amp. Three are provided, but only two are used. You wanna to refer to your brake controller's instructions to see if it requires the 20-amp or 30-amp circuit breaker. The 40-amp is for the hot lead that connects to the positive post on vehicle battery.It also comes with a circuit tester, which helps you find the stop light switch wire above the brake pedal.

All the hardware for the installation is included, so you get your ring terminals, quick-splice wire connectors, butt connectors, self-tapping screws, zip ties, and your wire loom. The zip ties and the wire loom help secure any excess or slack in the wiring, and offers a nice, professionally-installed appearance. It also comes with detailed installation instructions and a step-by-step guide that Etrailer put together for you. That's gonna take you through the entire process step-by-step. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Universal installation Kit for trailer brake controllers.

I am very pleased with the results of my installation of the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 in my 1998 Toyota T100 using the ETBC6 installation kit. Patrick at etrailer provided information to help me know what to do, and I reviewed etrailer's video entitled "Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2002 Toyota Tundra" several times in preparation for the effort. The video is the most comprehensive of any I could find, showing what to do from beginning to end, even though the vehicle is different from mine. The ETBC6 kit included everything I needed (extremely convenient) except for a 1/2" grommet (which it should include for a few pennies more). The effort required about 5 hours. The most difficult part was determining which wire on the T100's Brake Switch (Green with White Stripe) to attach the red wire to from the Prodigy P2 because the Brake Switch is located in a very difficult location that could not be easily probed. 138053

Weve used it several times throughout the past year and it works perfectly. I wouldnt pull a trailer without it.

  • Parts Needed to Install a 6-Way and a Brake Controller on a 2006 Ford Escape
  • We have exactly what you need. The kit you need that comes with everything needed to install a 6-way and install a brake controller on your 2006 Ford Escape is the # ETBC6. I attached a set of installation instructions that will detail how it will install. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup.

  • How to Connect a Trailer with 6-Pole to Vehicle with 4-Flat
  • In order to tow a trailer with what I assume is a 6-pole round trailer connector on your 2010 Subaru Forester with a 4-flat trailer connector all you will need is the 6-Way and 4-Way Flat part # ETBC6. This will give you everything to attach the wiring from the trailer to the tow vehicle. The 6-pole trailer connector on your trailer will allow for you to add brakes to the trailer.

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2002 Ford Ranger with Factory 4 Pole Harness
  • You will need to hardwire an adapter to your 2002 Ford Ranger. We sell a Brake Controller Installation Kit with a 6-Way and 4-Way connector, part # ETBC6 that includes the adapter and the necessary wiring and components to complete the installation all by yourself. With this kit, you will not need to purchase any adapter separately. As a side, note, please be sure that the connector on the camper has a total of 6 pins. That is, it has 5 pins in a circle and one in the center. If it...

  • Brake Controller and Installation Kit for a 1999 Ford Ranger
  • To wire your 1999 Ford Ranger for a 6-way connector and a brake controller you will need a 4 way wiring harness for your vehicle, which you already have and a Brake Controller 6 & 4 Way Installation Kit, part number ETBC6, along with a brake controller you see link. You will attach your 4-Way wiring harness inline with the connector provided with the ETBC6 kit to power the taillight functions. I have linked you to an FAQ article that outlines the install procedure as well as a link...

  • How To Wire a Brake Controller to a 2001 Toyota Tacoma
  • The brake controller you were looking at, part # 39510, would work just fine. We also have a complete 6 way kit that will wire up your 6 pin plug at the bumper and wire it to the brake controller, part # ETBC6. You will not even need to cut off your 4 way connector as it will connect to the 6 way pigtail. This way, when you are pulling a trailer without brakes, you still have a functional 4 way connector. I will briefly run through the wiring process, but I will also include some...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 1992 Ford F250 Pulling a Horse Trailer
  • Any of the brake controllers that we offer would work just fine for your application, I would recommend you get a proportional-type controller such as the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. A proportional controller has an internal sensor which can determine how quickly the tow vehicle is braking, and will then send the correct amount of voltage to the trailer brakes so that the vehicle and trailer are stopping at the same rate. Having the vehicle and trailer braking in tandem is important...

  • Brake Controller and Brake Assemblies Needed for Two Axle Horse Trailer
  • When choosing a brake controller, I would recommend you go with a proportional controller. A proportional controller will sense how quickly and at what intensity the tow vehicle is braking, and will send the appropriate amount of voltage to the trailer brakes so that the vehicle and the trailer stop at the same rate. The Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885 is one of our best sellers because it is very simple to set up and use. The method used to install the controller will depend on the...

  • Adapter Recommendation to Install Brake Controller in a 2016 Mazda CX-9 with 4-Way
  • To install your Tekonsha brake controller and activate the 12 volt accessory circuit you would need the part # ETBC7. This kit comes with everything needed to convert the 4-way to a 7-way and install the brake controller. Most likely your Fleetwood uses a 7-way and not a 6-way since the RV world almost exclusively uses 7-ways and the agricultural world uses 6-ways. When you counted the pins did you count 6 on the outside and then a center pin? If so then you have a 7-way. In the off...

You will also need the Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC6 if you need a 6-way trailer connector, or part # ETBC7 if you need the 7-way. The install kits contain everything necessary for installing a brake controller on your vehicle. Finally, you will need to choose a brake controller. I would recommend the Tekonsha...

  • Parts Needed To Tow Car with Car Dolly
  • A car dolly like # RM-2000-1 comes with electric brakes, adjustable wheel nets fitting tires ranging from 12" to 16", tail/brake lights and a 6-way round trailer connector. Use of a towing dolly does require an electric brake controller that mounts inside the towing vehicle and that activates the tow dolly brakes when the motor home brakes are applied. One of the most popular is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. You will also need a wiring kit, part # ETBC6. This kit includes everything...

  • Do I Need Brake Controller For 1999 Toyota Tacoma Towing 2500 lb Trailer w/ Electric Brakes
  • If the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) of the trailer you are towing is half or more of the tow vehicles Gross Vehicle Weight, it is recommended to use a brake controller. Most states even require that a brake controller be used. I would recommend installing a brake controller for braking power and certainly for safety. Since your 1999 Tacoma has a 4-way and the trailer has a 6-way connector, to install a brake controller, you will need to use the Brake Controller 6 and 4 Way Installation...

  • What Brake Controller and Module for 1997 GMC Topkick 6500 Towing 10 Ton Trailer
  • Depending on how your Topkick is equipped, you may need up to 3 items to install a brake controller. If the vehicle does not already have a trailer wiring harness you will first need to install a 4-way wiring harness. Since you seem to have a heavy-duty trailer, we recommend a heavy-duty powered converter, # 119190KIT, rated for 15.9 amps. Next you will need a 4 and 6 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC6. I have included a link to the installation details for this item. This will provide...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Ball Mount, And Wiring For 2017 Chevy Colorado
  • Yes. You will want the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # C13203, for your 2017 Chevy Colorado. This is a bolt on installation that requires temporary removal of bumper during installation. If you will be using this trailer hitch receiver for towing, I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500 lbs, # 989900. This will give you two different ball mounts with different rise or drop along with two hitch balls and the pin and clip. If you prefer an...

  • Equipment Needed to Install Brake Controller on 2003 Lexus RX300
  • I'd be happy to help you with that. Beginning with the brake controller I'd recommend going with a proportional controller like the Tekonsha Primus, part # TK90160. A proportional controller can sense how quickly the tow vehicle is braking, and will send the correct amount of voltage to the trailer brakes so the vehicle and trailer stop at the same rate. Time delayed controllers will always send the same amount of voltage to the trailer brakes (according to how you've adjusted it) whether...

If not, you can install one using part # 18252. To install your brake controller we offer an installation kit, part # ETBC6 for a 6-way trailer connector, or part # ETBC7 for a 7-way connector.

  • Adding a 6- or 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2014 Ford Explorer to Tow a Trailer With Brakes
  • Since you said you want a Prodigy P2, part # 90885, so the trailer has brakes. In order to power its brakes you need the 6- or 7-way trailer connector to provide that function. Simply using an adapter from a 4-way to a 6- or 7-way won't do so because the 4-way doesn't have a brake circuit. Instead you need to convert the 4-way to either a 6-way with part # ETBC6 or a 7-way with part # ETBC7. Both kits use an existing 4-way and convert it to a fully functioning connector of whichever...

Your existing bearings and grease seals should have reference numbers stamped on them, make sure the numbers on the existing parts match those of the replacements. You will also need electric brake assemblies, part # 23-47 for the...

  • Brake Controller Install on 1997 Chevrolet Pickup
  • This is a fairly straightforward install. GM has already run some of the necessary wiring from the rear frame rail area to the engine compartment, so you will see a blue wire for the electric brake function, and an orange wire which provides 12 volt power for trailer accessories like a breakaway kit near the end of the driver side frame rail. The orange and blue wires at the rear of the truck would attach to the appropriate poles on the 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper. You can...

  • Replacing a 6-Way Trailer Connector on a Rockwood XL 1280 Pop Up Trailer
  • It sounds to me like the previous owner did not wire his home made trailer connector properly. If the trailer came with a 6-way connector, then that means there are two additional wires coming from the 6-way connector for the trailer brakes and, most likely, an auxiliary power source. If you are not worried about supplying power to the trailer brakes or auxiliary power source, then I would first recommend checking your local laws to see if brakes are required on your trailer. Some states...

  • Brake Controller Installation on 1998 Ford E350 Van
  • The procedure for installing a brake controller in your van will depend on what (if any) trailer connector is on the vehicle. If the van has the factory installed 7-way or 4-way connector, there will be a port under the dash for installing a brake controller. You will need the brake controller wiring adapter, part # 3035-S. The adapter would wire color for color to the brake controller, and would then plug into the port under the dash. If the van has the 4-way connector, the port...

The P2 is our best seller, it is very easy to use and set up. You will also need one of our Brake Controller Installation Kits. If you are needing a 6-way connector, use part # ETBC6. For a 7-way, use # ETBC7. The kits contain everything necessary to install a controller, including the adapter that will plug into your existing 4-pole...

When you plug in the adapter, item # 3025-S if you need one, the wire is attached to the blue wire on the adapter which is connected to the blue wire on the brake controller. From under the hood the blue wire with the connector that needs to be cut off is ran to the 6-Way or 7-Way connector at the rear of the vehicle and attached to the brake circuit in the connector.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma

If it's a 7-way it will look like the second picture with the 6 "blades" around a single pin in the middle. Whichever one you have the easiest way to install the correct harness on your 2012 Toyota Tacoma is to start with a 4-way trailer connector. For the 4-way you can use # 118496. This installs by plugging in behind the...

If you are wiring a 7-Way connector I would recommend the # ETBC7 wiring kit which has all of the wiring, circuit breakers and parts needed to install the 7-way once you have a 4-Way installed on the truck. If you need a 6-Way connector then the # ETBC6 wiring kit will be what you need. You...

The electric brake circuit will work, but you will also need a brake controller, like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, # 90195, and a custom brake controller wiring adapter, like part # 3070-P. The brake controller is what applies power to the electric trailer brake circuit. Models that came pre-wired for the tow package will have a factory brake controller plug located...

I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. In most cases you'd want a 7-way and not a 6-way so you'd instead want the part # ETBC7.
