Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner.


As long as the Voyager controller is mounted properly and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power and Sensitivity Adjustment

Getting the braking power you need for your application is simple with the Voyager. First, set up the controller as indicated in the instructions, making sure that the internal sensor is properly leveled. Then set the overall power by adjusting the power knob while you test out your rig. The power should be just enough to achieve maximum braking without locking up your trailer brakes.


Once you have the overall power set, you can fine-tune the power output by adjusting the sensitivity of the internal sensor. Use the level knob on the side of the Voyager to achieve your desired degree of intensity. Move the knob toward you (clockwise) to delay the power output, creating braking sensitivity that is ideal for lightweight setups. If you are towing a heavy load, you may want the trailer to brake more aggressively to prevent it from pushing your tow vehicle. To get more intense stopping action, turn the level knob away from you (counterclockwise).


LED Indicator

On the front of the Voyager there is an LED indicator that is designed to keep you aware of the braking action of your trailer. Typically, this light burns green to indicate that your trailer and tow vehicle are securely connected. When the light is green, only 5 milliamps are being drawn, thus minimizing drain on your Jeep Liberty's battery.


As you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, the LED will change to red. This indicates that power is being sent to the trailer brakes. The light will also burn red whenever you activate the manual override lever.


During installation and setup, this light is used to ensure that the Voyager will be able to function correctly. Proper leveling of the internal sensor is crucial to the operation of this brake controller. When the sensor is level, the LED will change to a shade of orange.


Simple Installation

The Voyager is designed to be mounted in your cab at a vertical angle that is between -20 degrees and 70 degrees.


Correct Voyager mounting90-Degree Voyager mounting

Note: The Voyager must be mounted on a level horizontal (side-to-side) plane and must be lined up with the direction of travel for the internal sensor to function properly.


Once the controller is mounted, you must level the internal sensor. First, set the overall power to maximum using the knob on the side of the controller. Then, while pressing the tow vehicle's brake pedal, adjust the level knob on the other side of the brake controller (this is the same knob that is used to fine-tune the power output) until the LED monitor is a shade of orange.


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


Installation Accessories

For easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your Jeep Liberty, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your Jeep Liberty, one of the following will be required:

20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2- to 4-brake applications

30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 6- to 8-brake applications

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 39510 Review

Today we are going to review part number 39510. This is the Tekonsha Voyager proportional brake controller. This brake controller will activate your trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicles braking action. It will automatically adjust the trailers braking based on deceleration of the towed vehicle. And it does activate immediately so there is no pausing like with your time delayed brake controllers.

It does have multiple mounting options, basically this would position within 90 degrees in a vertical plane, meaning this way. It will mount between a negative 20 which would be 20 degrees down, or a positive 70 in a vertical plane which would be up. So there is a 90 degree range. A minus 20 up to a positive 70. And horizontally, you do want this to be horizontal to the direction of travel. You do not want it to be turned that way or this way. And you can fine tune the adjustment braking power and aggressiveness right here with this knob. Right here is the LED monitor which will change color to alert you of the braking action of the trailer. The very front here you can see there is a built in slide bar manual override. This is used when you do need to in an emergency braking situation where you would need the brakes applied immediately.

Now on the back of this controller there is a plug that would plug into a harness. For an example here today we are going to use this pigtail harness, which actually has the plug on one end to fit the brake controller. And on the other end it just has the pigtail wires which will wire into your vehicle. This is a part #7894 that we do sell separately. Going to use that today to show you a demonstration. Now we also sell a plug in vehicle specific brake control wiring harness. We sell those separately. What that is, if your vehicle has a factory brake controller port, you can buy a harness for certain applications to reduce the installation time, and that harness would have the plug that would plug into the controller, and the other end instead of being the pigtails would have a plug that would match the factory brake controller port of your vehicle. So if that is available what you can do is check our fit guide online and that will tell you if your vehicle has a vehicle specific adapter available for your application.

Now this brake controller does come with the mounting bracket which mounts to the side right here, and the mounting hardware. It does come with a nice set of detailed instructions, and some pictures that will help you set up the brake controller. And again I mentioned we are going to give you a demonstration. I am going to take these pigtail wires and basically hook them up to a power source so we can show at least the light, how it changes colors. Once I get these all hooked up we will be ready to go. Ok, so we got them all hooked up to a power source. Here is the plug in. So basically we will just plug it in, turn on the power. Once you get power you will see a green light, that means it is connected. Now if the trailer was not connected, I will just unhook it here, you will see the light would not be on. So if the trailer is plugged in and connected you will see it gives a nice green light.

Basically the 1st thing you want to do is level this brake controller. And you will do that by taking this power knob and turning it all the way clockwise which will be full power. And then you would apply the brakes. And with holding the brake pedal you would go to this level adjustment knob over here and turn it. And you will see that it is green right now, and you will just start turning it to the back of the controller until you will see it will start turning to red. you can see how it changes to red, and what you want to do is then turn it back until you get a dim orange. Once you the dim orange that is your typical setting that you will want to start with. Then you can leave off the brakes. That will level the sensor on the inside. And then to adjust the power you have to do a test drive. what you will want to do is to go back to this power knob and put it at the 12 o'clock position, then go out and drive. Get it up to about 25 mph and apply the brakes. And then just adjust it from there. Application for this controller is trailers with up to four axles or eight brake assemblies. Now this is designed for use with electric brakes only. It will not work with electric over hydraulic. It does come with a five year limited warranty. That should do it for review on part number 39510 the Tekonsha Voyager proportional brake controller.

The controller works fine but it has developed a rattle on rough roads. It was a replacement for one I broke. 559720


Comments

The Voyager brake controller is an older design that uses a pendulum-style accelerometer, versus one thats solid state. This is the rattle youre hearing.

This is a good product it does the job very well but if you have different trailers I would recommend getting one that will remember a couple different settings. 565456

If you tow multiple trailers, I recommend a Tekonsha P3 part # 90195. The p3 lets you customize 5 storable settings for multiple trailers, varying loads or different drivers.

I pull a small camper with a VW Touareg. The electronics in the T'reg don't play well with top of the line brake controllers. I spoke with the Tekonsha rep and he recommended the Voyager. The Voyager is a very simple controller, easy to install, and works well. I don't miss the fancy display. ICS 271698

Thus far it works great. I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna and use it for a tent trailer (pop up trailer). After researching and watching etrailer.com's video on installing a brake controller on a Sienna I found that the price was best here AND the kit to install it was without comparison. Really--I went to an auto parts store and tried to figure out what all I would need to create my own kit and it was exhausting. So great to follow what they have put together here. I took the trailer out after installing this brake controller and it was great. Braking felt like braking normally (with no trailer hooked up). I would recommend this product as well as the other parts and kits suggested by the youtube video. 511079

I ordered the Tekonsha Voyager brake controller and harness for my truck from etrailer, received shipping confirmation within hours and the controller arrived in three days. I googled installation brake controller for my particular truck and etrailer had an excellent video which made it very easy to install. Setting the level and power were also easy as per Tekonsha’s instructions. All in all it was a good experience and the controller will be a good match for my trailer. A good product from a good company at an excellent price. 460310

I installed this controller on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Installation was easy (as I had also purchased the adapter cable for my Jeep), adjustment instructions were clear and the controller worked perfectly. 79126


Comments

Hi...am also looking at installing on my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Am in Australia....not sure what the adjuster cable is and whether it is something I should mention to my Auto Electrician. Are you able to clarify?

-- comment by: Terry B - 08/07/2013

The adapter cable referenced is for plugging the brake controller into a port under the dash that Jeep provides on models with the factory towing package, in this case, it is part 3045-P. Please note this port will only be present and active on models equipped with a factory 7-Way trailer connector at the rear. These harnesses are also developed and designed for North American Market vehicles and if your Grand Cherokee was built for sale in Australia, it may not be compatible and could potentially damage the vehicle electrical system. In that case, it may be best to have the installer hard-wire in the brake controller and use an ETBC7 kit to complete the install. It would give the installer all the parts needed to add a 7-Way and wire the Voyager in.

Awesome controller. We use them often our our equipment. Only problem we had this install, was locating the right wiring to tie into the brake circuit. New 2014 Chevy express van. Chevy only uses a 5 volt switched supply at the brake pedal. Ended up locating and tied into the brake light circuit for the 12 volts needed for controller to see the brakes are applied. 150511

After a year, the Tekonsha Voyager is working great. It was easy to install in my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500, what took the most time was my deliberating on the best spot to mount it. The unit is very sensitive to your vehicles loading. So changes in stance under load or unloaded may cause you to have to adjust the unit for more efficient trailer braking, which I needed to effortlessly do the other day while towing. I just needed to remember that. A great product and etrailer is a great company. I was at etrailer online browsing my lastest parts list for my camper trailer just today. CA. 362421

No frills, quality brake controller. This is my third one. Had this one installed in our Toyota Tundra in about an hour. I also have one installed in a 1996 Dodge Ram, and a 2007 Chevy Suburban. They work great with my trailer, they are simple to adjust and have been trouble free. 233892

Meriah was fantastic in handling my order. She assisted me (as did other's on previous calls) in ensuring that I was ordering the right pieces. She made sure that my order was filled quickly as I was under a time constraint to get the hitch installed to go pick up a new camper. It has arrived and waiting on the install. Thanks!

Follow up review: I just used this controller again this last week while pulling my camping trailer, and for the last year it has performed flawlessly. I know there are other brands that sell for up to double the money but I honestly can't see why you need to spend more in this case. I am a "happy camper"! 361034

very good service and product. I already had a tow package on my Nissan truck and the connect pigtail sent was a perfect fit. Took me about 1.5 hrs to install it and check it out. Very easy to adjust and the electric brakes are great. The unit and pig tail were less than $100 and that included shipping. Thanks etrailer.com. 287349

I'm in the car hauling business, and use two diesel Ford Excursions, pulling enclosed car hauler trailers. I have used the Tekonsha Voyager electric brake controllers with great success, and this is the 3rd unit I have purchased, and will install it in my son's 1999 F250 diesel that he will pull his new 5th wheel camp trailer with. 358526

Completely plug and play installation and works flawlessly, very happy with this unit. I also ordered the exact harness for my 2005 f150 with tow package. Here are a couple of hints that may be helpful. My installation also required a 30 amp cartridge fuse to be installed in the fuse panel in location #105(electric trailer brakes) under the dash on the passenger side. I also installed a relay in location r05 (trailer tow battery charge) but I don't think this is needed for the controller to function. I still had the original trailer brake kit and it had the additional fuse panel instructions and the relay. The owners manual showed where the 30 amp fuse and relay plugs in. You cannot test this unit until a trailer with brakes is connected, ie the led will not light up until it senses a brake circuit. 272082

Seems perfect. I'll put 5000 miles on it over the next month. The three controls are easy to adjust without looking, though I'd prefer the side mounted knobs to stick out a little more, so you can grab them easier. 221933

They work great. I actually had the controller stolen out of the truck in Albuquerque this summer and replaced it with the same unit. \Unfortunately, I had to buy it quickly traveling so I paid more at a trailer supply store.At least the thieves didnt get the truck! A friend in the same parking lot wasnt as fortunate.

I installed this in a 2014 Nissan xterra, The xterra has a white plug in under the dash near the computer plug in. This brake controller was very easy to install when used with the plug in wire adapter. I tried the brakes, they worked fine. You do need to fine tune & ADJ the controller, but not a big deal. When the lights are green on the controller you have brakes. E-Trailer sells this as a kit with both items, I think at a fair price. The shipping was fast and it arrived 2 days faster than expected, Thanks George! If I ever need trailer related parts, that will be my first place to look. 248615

The product was easy to install with the help of the F-250 adapter. I followed the direction and the product worked just as it was advertised from etrailer.com. If I had to give the Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Break Controller a star rating from 1-5, I would give it a 4.5. 196497

This installation is in a 2010 Ford F-150 Lariat The installation was very easy. It helps to have a 90 degree screwdriver to install the screws on the right side. The screws will install easier if you install them first, remove them and re-install after the bracket is installed on the vehicle. 8161

Installation was a breeze with the adaptor wiring for my truck. 20 minutes and the unit was installed. Once the truck was hooked up to our 24 foot trailer, setting the brake controller took another 10 minutes. A quick test drive to fine tune the brakes and we were good to go! 383479

I've used this controller on and off for the last year on my 2010 Rav4 pulling a 3000 lb enclosed trailer. I've had no issues with the controller other than bumping the adjustment wheels getting in and out. It took a bit of time to get it installed but it went smoothly and has worked great ever since. 360608

Etrailer has the best website with all the tutorials on the product and installation. I received my Tekonsha trailer brake controller within 5 days. Everything was as advertised and easy to install and setup. I had this same controller on a 2002 Chevrolet 1500 HD and it worked great. Many trips to the mountains. Now installed the new one on a 2009 Ford F150. I will be purchasing more items in the near future from Etrailer. 256597

Appears to work so far but too early to tell for a long term assessment. Liked that my vehicle had a ready plug under the dash so no wiring hassles were experienced. 89499


Comments

Thanks Patrick and I like it just fine although have used it only once. Is actuated by the use of the brake pedal and can be utilized manually by moving the lever horizontally to the right. Much of the credit should be given to the gal that took my call with the order. Originally was going the cheap route with no proportioning on the TBC and she indicated that I would be very disappointed if more money wasnt tendered for a proportioning TBC. It always helps when your sales staff has technical knowledge on the products.

The break controller was what I ordered but the wire harness that was sent with it did not have a wiring diagram so I could wire it to my truck correctly. I had to go to a YouTube video to get the correct information so I could wire the harness to my truck without hurting the controller or the vehicle. Question: Does your company not send a diagram with all of your harness? Customer should not have to go to a YouTube video to install the product. 406364


Comments

Hi Walter and Donna, since brake controller wiring harnesses are not universal, manufacturers do not provide wiring diagrams in their packages because they do not know how or if your specific vehicle is prepped for a brake controller. However, we do have a help article on brake controller wiring, and general trailer wiring. I have included links for your reference. If you have any other issues do not hesitate to contact our tech experts.

I have had several of these over the years. I currently have 3 controllers on different trucks. I pull 5 different trailers with completely different weights. The controller works really well. I definately recommend this controller. You level it on the left side, which allows for placement in alot of areas of the truck. When I am towing I can adjust the brakes with the dial on the right side. Obviously the brakes need to be lighter when the trailer is empty. Simply turn the dial back until the brakes don't lock up. When I get it loaded I turn the dial forward until I can feel the brakes take hold. The lever on the front lets me manually apply the trailer brakes. I use this in cases where I am going downhill and it is better to let the trailer slow me down. If I ever need another controller, this will be it. Great price also. 92292

I loved this controller so much I put one in my other vehicle. For the price you can't beat it. Just don't forget you need the wiring harness item 7894 ($$) to go with it. Pros It is really easy to dial in how much brake you need. I dial it down when I get off the highway to prevent the trailer from pulling hard and increase it for higher speeds. Also you can pinch the lever the engage the trailer brakes without braking your vehicle to see just how much braking the trailer (only) is doing. Also there is an led indicator that turns from green to pink to red as more break is applied and serves as a good visual indicator. 333539

I chose the Tekonsha Voyager inertia activated brake controller because i wanted the inertia system rather than the time delay system but needed it at a reasonable price. I have not tried it yet but it checked out electrically. I have two minor issues: it did not come with a wiring adapter. Maybe none of them do but one is needed to make wiring easy. Fortunately, I ordered one at the same time. The other issue is that it requires the metal bracket for mounting but on my vehicle it sticks out too far and I bang my knee on it when I slide behind the wheel. I think I can use double backed tape for mounting and still have it positioned so the inertia part will work okay. 290689

Easy installation and seems to be a great product. I also used the harness for my 07 new body Silverado for a easy install. Videos are a great help as well . I will purchase all of my trailer and RV needs from ETrailer from now on. 214149

Received product this weekend, installed, and tested it. Everything is working great! We have installed this same brake controller on several trucks and it works well. Website was super helpful because we could enter make and model of the truck and it told us which wiring harness to use. On top of that, we had a video to review on exactly how to install it on our truck. Finally, the company sent me an email to follow-up and make sure I had everything I needed. If only every website was so customer service oriented. AWESOME Purchase experience! 356070

Easy to install and works fine. I was a little confused though. I watched this vied which was extremely helpful and told me exactly how to install the device http://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-brake-controller-2011-chevrolet-suburban-90885.aspx however, the video says the wire butts are included, and they were not. Otherwise, all is good. 107567


Comments

That video is for a different brake controller, the Prodigy P2 part 90885. The installation will be similar, but not all the same parts are included. The P2 does include a loose wire pigtail and butt connectors. Plug-in connectors and the loose wire pigtail connector are sold separately for the Voyager controller.

In terms of this brake controller, it may have been an early failure as after hooking it up and following the setup procedure, the LED came on and then, during adjustment, got bright and then went out permanently. I will update this review when I debug the problem more fully. I know my wiring is correct but I may have a 12V feed issue that is causing this. One thing I will say is that overall etrailer.com is outstanding! I do all of my business with them and tell people about how great they are every chance I get. Every aspect of their operation is excellent from technical information and support to customer service. Great company! 132219

  • Yes, we can help you test your brake controller and determine if the controller is bad or if there is a wiring issue that is causing the problem on your 2003 Ford F-250 pickup. Lets start with the easiest things first. Be sure that when you are testing the trailer brakes with the brake pedal that the vehicle is moving. The trailer brakes will not apply with the brake pedal if the vehicle is not moving because of the proportional sensor. The first thing I would check is the red wire that...

  • Fuse Location to Power an Electric Trailer Brake Controller on a 2005 Chevy Silverado
  • The Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller with GM Wiring Harness, # 39510 and # 3015-P, itself does not have a fuse. Since it is connected to the truck via the factory port under the dash, the fuse for the brake controller 12 volt power is located in the power distribution box under the hood.

  • No Green Light on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller on 2010 Honda Pilot when Connected to Trailer
  • The green light on the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, # 39510, indicates that the trailer is connected to your Honda Pilot, so it will not come on unless a trailer is connected. If the green light does not come on when the trailer is connected, then there are a few things that could be causing the green light to stay off. The first thing I would check is the trailer brake fuse in the secondary under hood fuse box. There should be a 20-amp fuse in fuse location # 14. If there is...

  • How Much Voltage Should Be Applied To Brakes on Trailer w/ Electric Brake Controller
  • Your brake controller should be getting 12 volts of power going into the brake controller. The wire that feeds power to the brake controller is the Black wire. You can test this wire by using a multimeter, part # part # BTMT15. The amount of power coming out of the brake controller depends on the adjustment of the gain on the controller. To test the voltage at the highest gain setting, you will want to sever the Blue wire a few inches from the back of the controller. Then, you will want...

  • Blue Wire Showing Voltage with No Trailer Connected and When Not Applying Brakes on Brake Controller
  • It does sound like there is a short to the brake controller through the wiring or in the internal circuitry of the brake controller. Since your brake controller shows no red light this indicates a short to the brake line (blue wire). If you are using wiring harness, # 3040-P, make sure that extra white ground wire is attached to a clean bare metal surface. If it is hardwired to the truck, the ground needs to be connected to the negative battery terminal. Sever the blue wire a few...

  • Where Does a Brake Controller Install on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The correct adapter to install the Brake Controller part # 39510 you referenced in your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 is the part # 3020-P. This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. I attached a picture of the blue connector plus a link to an install video that will walk you through the process.

  • Troubleshooting LED Indicator Light on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller 39510
  • The green light on the Voyager brake controller # 39510 should come on as soon as you plug the trailer into the vehicle. If it does not come on at all, this indicates that you either have some corrosion inside the trailer or vehicle plugs that is causing a short, or you have a loose power or ground connection. Check the plugs on both sides of the setup for any white or green corrosion. If you see any, clean the plug thoroughly or just replace it. If you don't see any buildup in...

  • Factory Port Location for a Brake Controller Wiring Harness on a 1999 Dodge Ram
  • I show that the Tekonsha Plug-In Brake Control Wiring Adapter, Dodge, item # 3020-P, and it works on all Dodge Ram Pickups from 1995 - 2009. You should be able to use the adapter that is connected to your Tekonsha Voyager brake controller, item # 39510, on your 1999 Dodge Ram. I believe you are looking at the wrong connector under the dash. You will need to look under the dash, near the emergency brake pedal for a white or blue connector that is above a white junction box.

The red wire must tap into the cold side of your vehicle brakes. The blue wire will run to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle.

  • Indicator Light on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Does Not Come On when Connected to Trailer

The white wire needs to be directly connected to the negative battery terminal. The black wire should show 12 volts of power. The indicator light should glow red, with or without a trailer connected, when you apply the manual override lever. If it does not light up it means that the controller is not sending...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation on a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The red wire on the Tekonsha Voyager, # 39510, is for the stop light wire on the cold side of the brake switch. In order to find it, you will need a circuit tester, # ALL640595 if needed) and then probe the wires on the brake switch above the brake pedal. You will need the wire that carries a signal only when the brake pedal is pressed. If you find a wire that also shows a signal when the lights are on or turn signals engaged it is not the correct wire. You need a dedicated brake light...

  • Is the Orange CHMSL Wire Used to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2013 Chevy Silverado
  • The orange wire you found is the CHMSL circuit. This is the center high mount stop light wire. It is not used by a brake controller so you can tape it up and stow it out of the way. The wires that you will need with be 12 volt power, output to trailer brakes, input from brake switch or stoplight circuit, and ground. On a brake controller the black wire is 12 volt power, white is ground, blue it output to the trailer brakes, and red is input from the brake switch. On the vehicle the...

  • What Do the Level and Gain Setting Do on a Tekonsha 9030 Voyager Brake Controller
  • On the Tekonsha Voyager brake controller, part # 39510, there are seven levels of brake intensity. You will need to decide how much brake you want applied to your trailer in relation to the amount of brake you are applying in your vehicle. For instance, let us say you are hauling a trailer that is heavier than your vehicle. If you are only lightly riding your brakes, you will need a little more power going to the brakes on your trailer to accomplish the same effect. In a case such as...
