Time-Delayed Braking

The Venturer 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 Venturer. The controller then sends power out to your trailer brakes to activate them with an intensity set by you, at a rate determined by you. Both the amount of braking power (output) and rate of application (sync) can be adjusted to suit your preference, the road conditions, type of trailer, and size of the load. To determine which levels are 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 maximum power output. Unlike a proportional brake controller, which activates your trailer's brakes based on the deceleration of your tow vehicle, the Venturer sends power out in the same way, with the same gradual delay, no matter the braking situation. Although this delay always exists, it can be adjusted by changing the sync setting.


Built-In Controls for Adjustable Power

Curt Venturer Controls and Components

The above diagram shows the controls and components of the Curt Venturer trailer brake controller.

  1. LED display
  2. Power output control
  3. Sync control
  4. Slide-bar manual override

Output Control

During the initial setup process, use the slide-bar control on top of the Venturer to adjust the output. The output control lets you set the maximum amount of power that will be applied to your trailer's brakes. Typically, the output is only readjusted when you experience changing road conditions or if you switch over from a heavy, loaded trailer to a much lighter, empty trailer, or vice versa. To get more power to your brakes, slide the switch to the right. To decrease the power output, slide it to the left. The bars on the LED display indicate the output setting from 1 to 8.


Sync Setting

To adjust the aggressiveness of your trailer's braking action, use the slide-bar control on the side of the Venturer to change the sync setting. If you want to reach maximum power output faster, move the switch forward. To get smoother braking action, slide the switch backward, thus supplying power to the trailer brakes more gradually. You can alter the sync setting to suit your driving preferences or to improve handling based on changing road conditions or varied trailer loads.


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. As a result, mounting options are limitless, so long as you can still easily access the controller.


Installation of the Venturer 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 Venturer, 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 vehicle, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: 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- to 4-brake applications

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

Video Transcript for Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Jeep Liberty

Today in our 2008 Jeep Liberty, we'll be installing E-trailer's ETBC7 brakecontroller installkit with the Curt venture brake controller part number C51110. To start, we'll first go ahead and assemble the 7 pole adapter bracket. With the hardware provided, we'll use it to attach the bracket to the 7 pole adapter. We'll go ahead and take the bracket, feed over the wires and up to the back of the amounting surface for the 7 pole adapter. Then we'll take the screws, feed them to the front side of the 7 pole and secure it with the knots in the back side. Once we have all four in place, we'll go ahead and tie them down.I'm going to go and take some black electrical tape and wrap up 8 to 10 inches of our wire.

This will assist in bundling our wires together and help protect it from the elements. Next, we'll go ahead and attach the draw-tite no drill mounting bracket part number 18136. Using the fasteners provided with the bracket, we can secure it to the 7 pole bracket. Now that our 7 pole connector and bracket's set up, we're ready to install it on the vehicle. We'll use the clamp provided with the bracket to secure it. Now, with our 7 pole brackets secured to the hitch, next we'll take the flat 4 pole connector that's all ready on the vehicle and connect it to the 4 pole coming out of the back of our new 7 pole connector.

Note, I recommend to use some dielectric grease between the two connection points to help keep down corrosion. We'll be using the Edelman dielectric grease part number 11755. Once we make this connection, we're going to go ahead and wrap it up with some black electric tape to help keep out the dust, dirt and debris. To make this connections, we'll go ahead and strip back the gray sheeting around the black and white wires inside, strip back the wires and then connect the black wire to the black wire from the 7 pole connector and the white wire from the gray duplex cable to the blue wire from the 7 pole connector.Now with our connection points secured, we'll go ahead and wrap them up with some black electrical tape. Next, we can start hooking up our wires.

We'll take the white wire with the preattached ring terminal and run it over to the vehicle's frame. Using the cell tapping screw provided with our install kit, we can secure the ring terminal directly to the frame providing ground for our 7 pole connector and 4 pole connector. Now, to access this wiring, we'll first open up the rear hatch, removethe two screws and secure the tail assembly and then pop it out of position. Being careful not to break the alignment tabs underneath. Then using our test light and putting the vehicle in reverse, we'll go ahead and probe the necessary wire to locate the reverse signal. This application will be the white wire with a light green tracer.

Now, we'll go ahead and pull back on some of the wire loom and get it out of the way so we can use a quick splice connector to secure an extra length of wire directly to the white wire with the light green tracer and then run the extra length of wire down between the bumper cover and body of the vehicle and reinstall the driver's side tail at assembly. Once we have it below, we'll go ahead and cut the length, strip it back and add it to our yellow back connector on the purple wire. Now with all our connections made, we'll go ahead and wrap up our wires with some black electrical tape to help bundle them together and clean up our install look. With that done, we can then go ahead and use some zip ties to secure the wiring as necessary. Next, we're ready to start running our gray duplex cable to the front of the vehicle. Keep in mind, when running a wires, stay away from any moving components to the stirring or suspension or excessive pits such as the exhaust. As we go along, we'll secure the wiring with the black zip ties provided with our install kit. Now, we have reached the front of the vehicle at the bottom of the engine compartment, we'll run our gray duplex cable to the loom clamp that all ready installed in the vehicle. Loosen or remove the loom clamp, run the gray duplex cable through it and then resecure the loom clamp back to the frame of the vehicle. Next, using a pole wire which can be a set piece of wire or in this case, a piece of red air tubing to assist in routing our gray duplex cable to the top of the engine bay. We'll take the pole wire, route it as necessary to the engine bay, then using some black electrical tape can tape our gray duplex cable to the pole wire and then pull it up to the top of the engine compartment. Now, we have our gray duplex cable to the other top of the engine compartment, hold it to the firewall and route it over to the battery. Then we'll go ahead and cut offthe excess gray duplex cable. Next, we'll hold the mark on our gray duplex cable where we'll need to split the gray sheeting. Once we split it, we'll pull the wires out and then cut off the sheeting that we just split. We're splitting it because the white wires is going to run into the vehicle and our black wire will ultimately run to the positive battery terminal through a breaker. Out to run our white wire into the vehicle, we're going to go to the manufacturers grommethere in the firewall. To do that, we'll need to cut a slice in the grommet to run through. We'll go ahead and pull the grommet off thefirewall and then cut a slice into it. Put our white wire to the slice and then route the wire into the cabin of the vehicle. Next, we'll take the leftover gray duplex cable that we cut off from our original piece and route it through the grommet also and reinstall our grommet. Next, we'll move to the cabin of the vehicle. Next, we'll go ahead and remove the installation panel that covers bottom of the dash. We'll remove the two push pin fasteners and secure it. Here, we need to install our brake controller bracket and brake controller. First, we'll take the bracket and secure it here to the dash using the cell tapping screws provided with the brake controller. Then we'll secure the brake controller to the brake controller bracket with the hardware provided. Next, we'll use the Curt universal wiring adapter for brake controllers part number C51515 and plug it in to the pigtail coming out of the brake controller. Then we can take the red wire from the pigtail which will run to the brake switch of the vehicle for our brake switch signal. Now withthat done all the way, we can easily access up underneath the dash. Next, we'll go ahead and locate the brake switch signal using our test light. We'll back pin the connector and press in the pedal to see which wire is hot only when the brake panel is depressed. For this application, we located the white wire with the green tracer. We'll go ahead and remove any electrical tape or sheeting so we can install a quick splice connector. Once we have the quick splice connector in place, we'll then slide the red wire into the quick splice connector. Crimp it down and close it clasped routing our pigtailover to the cake panel. Next, we'll need to take the blue wire from our pigtail and connect it with the white wire we run from the 7 pole into the grommet into the vehicle. We'll cut offthe excess in the white wire, strip it back and add a bulk connector. We can then take the blue wire from our pigtail and secure it to the other side of the bulk connector crimping it down. This will give our power to our trailer braking. The remaining two wires from our pigtail will be a black and white wire. This will be powering ground for the brake controller. To provide power and ground, we'll use the two remaining wires inside the gray duplex cable. We'll go ahead and strip back a couple of inches and cut off the gray sheeting. We'll then strip back the black and white wire, add bulk connectors and then secure it black to black and white to white. Now with all the connections made, we'll go ahead and wrap them up with some black electrical tape and then secure the wiring as necessary under the dash. Now with all the wires secured, we'll go ahead and cut off the excess of the zip ties to clean up our install look. Next, we'll go ahead and reinstall the interior panel. Now with everything secured, we'll move back to the engine compartment. Now, we're back underneath the hood, we need to install the 40 amp breaker provided with the brake controller installed kit using the cell tapping screws provided. Then we'll take the black wire that we ran from our 7 pole connector and secure it to the silver side of the breaker using the small ring terminal provided with our install kit. We'll secure the ring terminal with the serrated washer and knot. Next, we'll go ahead and take the gray duplex cable that we route inside for powering ground for our brake controller and run it over to the negative battery post. Then we'll cut off the excess duplex cable and strip back the necessary sheeting so that we can route the black wire to a second breaker. Next, we'll go ahead and mount the second breaker here to the inner fender well right next to our 40 amp breaker. Now, with the second breaker mounted, we'll go ahead and cut off the excess from the black wire, strip it back and add a small ring terminal. We'll then attach that one to the silver side of the second breaker. Next, we'll take the white wire from the gray duplex cable we just removed, cut off any excess, strip it back and add a large ring terminal. That ring terminal will get attached the negative battery post stud. We'll remove the knot from the stud, install the ring terminal and then re secure the knot. Next, we'll need to make up two leads to go from the copper side of our breakers to the positive battery terminal. Using a leftover black power wire from the gray duplex cable, we'll go ahead and strip back one in adding a small ring terminal and securing it to the breaker, routing it to the positive battery terminal and then repeating the same process for the second wire.Now, with both ring terminals routed to the positive battery post, we'll go ahead and remove the positive battery post stud knot, install both ring terminals and then resecurethe knot. With all our wires now connected, we'll go ahead and secure them as necessary with the black zip ties. We'll go up the excess from the zip ties to clean up our install look and that will complete our install of the E-trailer ETBC7 brake controller install kit part number ETBC7 in conjunction with the Curt venture brake controller part number C51110 on our 2008 Jeep Liberty.

This is my first experience with installing and/or using an electric brake controller so I'm by no means an expert. However, the Curt Venturer was easy to order and etrailer.com noted other parts I would need to complete the installation and use the product. It was delivered in a timely manner and was exactly as specified. I had my mechanic do the installation on my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder and it took him a couple of hours because of the age of the vehicle. The controller is easy and intuitive to set up and use and it works well. I will keep etrailer.com on my list of go-to places for my towing needs. 143219

Didn’t use do to lack of wiring that it doesn’t come with. Was looking for more of a plug in and go. Used a different product will try to use this on a different vehicle. 545769


Comments

This brake controller isnt a vehicle specific item. The wiring pigtail is the vehicle specific portion, and because the actual plug varies from vehicle to vehicle, the vehicle specific plug is sold separately. Most full and mid-sized pickups and SUVs manufactured since around 2000 will have the factory supplied connector for installing a brake controller.

got the package in the mail open product quick and easy install plug and play per say the product works grate noticeable difference with it. the only thing on this product is adjustment knobs has 2 to adjust not too difficult to adjust but once you get the hang of it its easy to work with it.. love the unit i don't pull a trailer everyday but im glad i have the controller on my truck. better to have one and not need one then need on and not have one. 561304

easy install, but extremely hard to adjust trailer load setting cannot stop trailer from over braking, very hard to drive in traffic. if this is not a defective I would not recommend it 574025


Comments

The brake controller has two adjustments. You can adjust both the amount of power delivered to the brakes, and the speed at which that power is delivered. The synch control is located on the side of the controller, try decreasing the aggressiveness of the brakes a bit and see if that helps. Finding the perfect setting for the smoothest possible braking action could take some fiddling around with both the power and the speed adjustment.

Comments

after 8k miles of towing with this controller, I wish I had bought a better one. the controller works fine, but is hard to keep in adjustment. one day it works fine, and the next its applying too much, or too little braking. If you plan on doing a lot of towing, buy a proportional controller.

Thanks for your follow up and reply. I agree with you the proportional brake controllers are much better, especially for frequent towing. Our best selling ones are the Tekonsha P2 # 90885

The CURT Venturer brake controller works as described in the user guide. It would be better if the display LED segments were bright enough to see in bright light. My installation is different from most. I mounted the brake controller and a trailer 7-pole socket to my Trailer Valet with a magnet and use the controller to operate the electric brakes on my trailer. This is far better than relying on the Trailer Valet brake alone, especially when moving the trailer on a grade. 557200

When used with part number C51515, easy install, hardest part of install is deciding where to drill into your new vehicle's dash to mount controller, or just ask your wife :). The included test light makes finding the correct "cold" brake wire a breeze. 82283

For a time based controller its good for my single axle trailer. Eventually I will upgrade to the intertia based controller. Time based cant seem to find a happy medium with the brake intensity at various loads.

Sorry for the late follow-up. I just wanted to let you know that the brake controller and wiring harness I purchased through eTrailer worked very well with my 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Cummins 6.7L diesel. Pictures are attached for your use, as required. The trailer was an 18-foot enclosed snow machine tailer with a steel chassis. I can't remember the empty weight, but it's substantial. We towed empty and full on dry and snow covered roads from Oklahoma to Colorado and back. Even with th exhaust brake on my truck, I can't imagine towing this load through the hills and mountains without a brake controller. It's been done before, but I would say it's an unnecessary risk given the more than reasonable prices at eTrailer...it was cheap insurance pulling such a heavy rig with my family on board. The controller was definitely not your top-of-the-line model, but the adjustability and controls were more than adequate for somebody who tows occasionally. A professional may desire more proportional controls and adjustability, but not much more. This unit peformed flawlessly. Thank you for your time. Please feel free to contct me if you would like any clarification on my statements or pictures. 121176

The products worked great up until about a few weeks ago Thats when I sold the truck where the items were installed. lol. Really though, I very much liked how the products listed and purchased from etrailer.com were easy to find, fit exactly as described, and performed as needed. etrailer.com is always one of the first places I look when searching for items for my new truck.

The adjustments are too sensitive. It does nothing or it locks up the brakes. The unit in my other truck had a digital readout. I will replace it with a better unit. I think Curt is a good product, I just should have bought a better unit. 558307


Comments

Have you tried adjusting the sync control on the side of the brake controller? Pushing the control toward the front of the vehicle makes the brakes more aggressive, pulling it towards you makes them less aggressive. Id recommend lowering the aggressiveness, which should provide the results youre looking for.

Excellent controller for my needs...fast shipping and a great price too! I read up on Progressive vs. Time Delay controllers; and for my needs I felt this Curt controller would be just fine. I just finished installing and adjusting the controller this morning. We recently bought a '99 Coleman Westlake Pop-up that weighs about 2,400 lbs. dry (much less than my brake-less boat trailer) and wanted to take advantage of the brakes that came on the camper for when we travel in the SC & NC mountains camping. On level ground I have found the controller to be very responsive and easy to adjust. I am sure having working brakes in the mountains will be nice! As others have said, finding just the right place to mount the controller was the most difficult part. The "plug & play" adapter/harness was more than long enough to complete the installation. Oh, did I mention fast shipping too! I am another very satisfied etrailer.com Customer! 402072

Worked great on my 2010 Silverado. I did have to hook up the factory trailer power source to fuse box under the hood in order for it to work. After figuring that out and wiring it up with butt connectors evrything else worked fine. Also controller indicator will not funcfion until the truck is hooked up to a trailer "with" electric brakes. 560168

Super easy installation on my 99 Dodge Ram. I have only tested this item but I will be using it on a road trip soon. although I believe it will work perfectly. easy installation I recommend purchasing the wiring harness that plugs in under the dash. you can install this in about 10 minutes or less. 262434

The controller works as advertised although we've yet to get it perfectly adjusted and won't until we have the SUV and trailer loaded for camping. The video didn't make clear the difference between a time delay controller like this and one that adjusts braking force in response to the tow vehicle's braking force. So I wonder, now that I know, which would really have been better for my situation. This so far tends to lock up my trailer wheels near the end of the brake cycle while seeming too gentle in applying them early on. Better adjustments may help, of course; time will tell. I'd recommend you discuss your planned installation with eTrailer before purchase. 178249


Comments

I have used this for a full year and agree... They seem light at the start of brake cycle then lock-up at the end. I have found that as a result I have it set on the gentle side.

Great service, One of the major items was going to delay my order, etrailer caught it and emailed an alternate selection that matched exactly. I also noticed one of the adaptors was universal not vehicle specific, they easily canceled the order with no charge. I reordered and it was shipped the same day! Everything was well packed and undamaged on arrival, standard shipping in less than a week! 479408

I could not figure out why my 2004 f250 had no trailer brakes to break the trailers when towing. Other pickups I have owned used trailer breaks work good. I guess I thought a trailer break was standard equipment on pickups. I have bought from e-trailer before saw a trailer brake C51110 I talked to a e-trailer rep got one sent to me. Good instructions to install in package + go to e-trailer for how to visual instructions. Worked for me. My horse trailer my 20' flat bed trailer and my 18' enclosed now break. Hour to install. Good product sales people who listen. Joel in Iowa 525613

With this brake controller and wiring harness installation was a snap in my 2014 Ford F150 STX.

My daughter and I installed the Curt Brake Controller C51110 and wiring harness on her 2007 Toyota Sequoia so she could pull a 2017 21' Travel Trailer to the Oregon Coast for the weekend. The hardest part was finding the plug connection in the wiring under the dash. Then when it did not work had to figure out where to find the fuse box. There was no fuse installed. After that it worked great. 636017

Brake controller easy to adjust, installation took just a few minutes. I have a 20' tandum axle trailer with brakes on both axles. Up graded controller so i can use for my tri axle as well. Great controller at a good price. I also purchased the C51352 Dual plug making the installation fast and easy. 619449

This product is easy to install with the correct harnesses. It is relatively basic, but it handled our application quite nicely. I was a complete novice when I started this project and had to learn as I went, but this is a nice brake controller. 616283

  • Custom Brake Controller Wiring Harness for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Installation Location
  • For your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the harness connection point is under the dash to the left hand side. I've attached a photo to help as well as a video of this installation. If you are using a Tekonsha Brake Controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 then you will use # 3045-P for your wiring harness. If you are using a Curt controller like # C51110 you will use harness # C51446. Finally if you are using a controller like the RedArc Tow Pro Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, then you will use the...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer that has Brakes with a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee without Tow Package
  • If you are wanting to tow a trailer that has brakes with your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee then there are a couple of different things that you will need to add. The Tekonsha T-One # 118727 that you referenced will give you a 4-Way flat connector to activate the lights on your trailer as you mentioned. Once this kit has been installed you will want to install the Universal Wiring Kit # ETBC7. This will plug into the 4-Way that you installed and will include the additional wiring needed...

  • Is Pilot Brake Controller Compatible With 2018 Ram 1500
  • I reached out to the manufacturer of the Pilot 2-6 Brake Electronic Brake Controller # 80550. They just advised me that the Pilot # 80550 will not work on a 2018 Ram. The reason why is because the brake light signal circuit only outputs 4 to 6 volts (the Ram requires a controller that can output at least 12 volts) which isn't enough for the brake controller to function properly. As an alternative, the Curt Venturer Trailer Brake Controller # C51110 will work for the 2018 Ram 1500....

  • 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...

  • Where Does a Curt Venturer Brake Controller Plug In on a 2016 Ram 1500
  • In order to install the Curt Venturer brake controller # C51110 on your 2016 Ram 1500 you will need wiring harness # C51458. It plugs into the factory plug on the truck located under the dash, to the right of the steering column, taped to another harness. I included a picture showing the location. the picture is from the instructions for # C51458 which I have also linked for you.

  • Parts Needed to Install Curt Venturer Brake Controller in 2018 Ford F-150 with 7-Way
  • To install the Curt Venturer brake controller part # C51110 all you need is the install harness part # C51436 that you referenced. This plugs into the port on your controller under the dash and then into the connector of the Venturer. You would not need to flash the computer of the truck either.

  • Will Curt Brake Controller C51110 Fit a 2015 GMC Yukon XL
  • Yes, you can use the Curt brake controller # C51110 in your 2015 GMC Yukon XL. If your Yukon came with the factory tow package that included a 7-Way trailer connector you will also need wiring harness # C51451 to plug the controller into the port under the dash. If your Yukon did not come with a factory tow package and 7-Way the brake controller can be wired to a set of factory wiring located under the dash, to the left of the steering column, held together with a white tag. You would...

  • What is Needed to Install Curt Venturer Brake Controller in 2007 GMC Sierra New Body?
  • If you have the factory 7-way on your 2007 GMC Sierra New Body you can install the Curt Venturer Trailer Brake Controller # C51110 with just the Universal Wiring Adapter for Curt Trailer Brake Controllers # C51515. Should your truck not have a factory 7-way you will still need the adapter, but you will also need to add Connector # PK11898 or, if your Sierra has a round plug with a cap instead of a bundle of wires above the spare tire, use part # 30955 instead. There is going to be a...

  • Will Curt's # C51110 Brake Controller Install in a 2013 Ford Explorer Using # C51322 Wiring Harness
  • The Curt Venturer Brake Controller, # C51110, and Brake Controller Wiring Harness, # C51322, will install in your 2013 Ford Explorer if you already have the 7-way trailer connector installed at the rear of your vehicle. If you do not have a trailer connector installed, then you will need to install a 4-way connector harness, # 118540, a Universal Installation Kit for Brake Controller, # ETBC7, and Brake controller Harness, # C51515 with the Curt Brake Controller # C51110.

  • Upgrade 4-Way to 7-Way Adapter for a 2015 Nissan Xterra and Recommended Brake Controller
  • The harness and 7-way plug that you suggested # 118267 is a compatible upgrade for your 2015 Nissan Xterra that currently has a 4-way plug. You'll just need to plug-in with no additional wiring needed. The Curt Brake Controller with Adapter # C51110, # C51382 is also compatible fit for your Xterra. If you're interested in a brake controller with all the bells and whistles, I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller with Adapter # 90195, # 3050-P. It's the latest version...

  • Brake Controller Installation on 2014 Ford E350 Van
  • The vehicle is unlikely to have the connector behind the dash unless it has the factory equipped 7-way on the rear bumper. If it does, the connector that the controller would plug into is clipped to the rear of the small cubbyhole or coin tray in the dash. You'll access the connector by removing the coin tray. If the van doesn't have the factory 7-way, you'll need to hardwire the brake controller using our Install Kit, part # ETBC7. If your vehicle is a motorhome on a van cutaway chassis,...

  • Wiring Harness for Curt Venturer Brake Controller on 2006 Ford F-150
  • If you have the Curt Venturer Brake Controller # C51110 the correct wiring adapter for your 2006 Ford F-150 is the Curt Custom Wiring Adapter # C51322, assuming you have the factory 7-way. Should you have that adapter the OEM plug on your F-150 should be on the underside of the dash like the one circled in the accompanying photo. If your plug does not look like that you may not have found the correct one and you will need to remove the trim panel below the steering column; the plug should...

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 1997 Chevy K1500
  • You can add a 7-Way connector to your truck but it requires some hard wiring. If your 1997 Chevy K1500 does not already have any trailer connector you would start by installing a 4-Way, # 118315. Then you would need to install 4 and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. If your truck already has a 4-Way then you will not need to install a different one. I have included some links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation. The ETBC7 harness also includes the parts needed to wire up a brake...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2004 Dodge Ram Without a Factory Tow Package
  • We have everything you need to install a brake controller on your 2004 Dodge Ram. Since your truck does not have any factory trailer wiring, we will want to install a trailer connector first because the brake controller will tie into the trailer connector, vehicle battery and the vehicles stoplight switch. You will notice 4 wires on the back of your brake controller. The black wire is for 12 volt power from the vehicle battery via a 30-amp circuit breaker. The white wire should be grounded...
