Time-Delayed Braking

The Syncronizer applies your trailer's brakes when the brake pedal in your tow vehicle is engaged. Every time you apply the brakes in your vehicle, a signal is sent - via the brake switch - to the Syncronizer. The controller then sends power out to your trailer brakes to activate them with an intensity you have set. The amount of braking power can be adjusted to suit your preference. To determine the amount of power that is best for your application, you must test out your towing setup and choose what feels best.


A time-delay controller is so named because there is a delay between the time that you initially apply the brakes in your tow vehicle and the time that the controller reaches the set maximum power output. Unlike a proportional brake controller, which activates your trailer's brakes based on the deceleration of your tow vehicle, the Syncronizer sends power out in the same way, with the same user-set delay, no matter the braking situation. The controller will continue to send out power to the trailer brakes as long as your foot is on the brake pedal, even when your truck and trailer have come to a stop.


Built-In Controls on the Syncronizer

Syncronizer Controls

The diagram above shows the controls and components of the Hayes Syncronizer electric trailer brake controller.


Power Output Control

The power output control lets you set the maximum amount of power that will be applied to your trailer's brakes. Typically, the power output is only readjusted if you switch from a heavy, loaded trailer to a much lighter, empty trailer - or vice versa.


During the initial setup process, use the thumbwheel on the left front of the Syncronizer to adjust the output. To get more power to your brakes, rotate the dial upward. To decrease the power output, move it downward.


Red Indicator Light

The red LED indicator light illuminates when the trailer brakes are applied. This light glows brighter as the power output to the trailer brakes increases.


Slide-Bar Manual Override

The manual slide lever overrides the preset power output and allows the operator to engage the trailer brakes without using the vehicle's brakes. In addition to being a necessary safety feature, this option helps to control trailer sway by slowing the trailer to put it back solidly behind the tow vehicle.


You can also engage the manual override to help you move a sliding 5th-wheel hitch closer to your truck's tailgate for tight maneuvering during slow speed turns. Just apply the manual override to hold the trailer in place while slowly moving the tow vehicle forward.


Quick, Simple Installation

Because inertia plays no role in the functioning of this controller, you do not have to mount the unit at any particular angle or position it in any particular direction. As a result, mounting options are limitless, so long as you can still easily access the manual override.


Installation of the Syncronizer requires that you either purchase a custom wiring adapter designed to plug into the controller or that you hardwire the controller directly into your vehicle. To hardwire the unit, you must remove the plug at the end of the integrated wiring harness.


Installation Accessories

The Hayes vehicle-specific, dual-mated wiring adapter is available for most newer trucks and SUVs with tow packages. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle's brake controller port, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Hayes also offers a universal wiring harness (HA81789-HBC - sold separately) that plugs into any Hayes brake controller. The 4 leads on the universal harness can then be hardwired into your vehicle. By splicing the universal adapter into your wiring instead of directly connecting the brake controller to your wiring, you gain the ability to unplug and remove the controller from your vehicle should the need arise.


Notes:

  • If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, one of the following will be required:
    • 20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2-brake applications
    • 30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 4-brake applications
  • If you're hardwiring the controller, it is also suggested that you install an in-line fuse between the controller and the stop light switch (required on 1999 and newer Fords).

Today we'll be reviewing part number HA81725. This is the Hayes Syncronizer Trailer Brake Controller for one to two Axles. It is a timed delayed break controller. This brake controller is going to activate your trailer brakes with preset intensity. Then a signal is sent to the trailer brakes when the tow vehicle's brakes are activated. It does have adjustable power output that lets you determine the amount of power sent to the trailer's brakes.

That way you can set it to a higher output when towing in hilly terrain or with a fully loaded trailer or you can back off the power output when you tow a lightweight or empty trailer. Here on the front, it does feature a red LED indicator that will illuminate when the trailer's brakes are applied. The light glows brighter as power output increases. The Hayes brake controller features a built-in safeguards that are going to protect your vehicle and your trailer. It has a manual override that illuminates the brake lights on tow vehicle and trailer. It also has a current illuminator that's going to protect the vehicle from shorts in the trailer wiring and it has the hazard flasher immunity to prevent the pulsing of your brakes when your flashers on your vehicle are activated. Here on the front, it features the easy to access slide-bar manual override.

It's made from a dependable solid-state construction. We also have a little wheel knob here, that way we can increase the gain. This is a quick and easy installation. This can be mounted at any angle, in any plane, and in any direction. Mounting bracket and the hardware are included.

You can see here on this side that we have numerous smaller holes, that way we can totally choose the mounting location that's going to best suit our application. Hayes also offers plug-in, vehicle-specific brake control adapters that are sold separately, those can be used for certain applications to help reduce the installation time. This is designed to be use trailers with up to two axles or four brake assemblies. This is designed to be used with the electric brakes only. The overall length is going to measure 5-1/4 of an inch. The width is going to measure 3-1/8 of an inch and the system is going to measure an 1-1/4 in height. That's going to do it for today's review of part number HA81725.

Original supplied item was defective, however Hayes customer service immediately sent another unit and it works great. With the addition of a small removable slip in bracket for the console of my 2012 GMC 1500 Crew Cab and the wiring adapter, I can simply plug and play when I need the controller as opposed to a permanent installation that I have in my other pickup. 243611

  • Parts Needed to Install Brake Controller in a 2016 Ford Transit

  • Troubleshooting Cruise Control Not Working After Brake Controller Install
  • Sounds like you connected the red (stoplight switch circuit) wire to the wrong circuit on your truck. When the cruise control on a vehicle starts acting up that is a tell-tale sign that the wrong circuit is being used for the red wire. What you want to do is use a circuit tester like part # 3808 to test the wires near the brake pedal to find the circuit that only sees 12 volts when the brakes are applied and none when the brakes are released. Correcting this should take care of both...

  • Will Hayes Syncronizer Brake Controller Work on a 2016 Ram 1500
  • In the newer Rams the stoplight switch of yhe truck uses a lower voltage signal than most vehicles so only some controllers can be used.
