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 vehicle'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 vehicle. 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 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- to 8-brake applications

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller - Proportional 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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

This is my second Tekonsha; I had to replace my 10-year old one after I accidentally broke it. This one is a bit of an upgrade, and is easily able to lock up the disc brakes on my 15,000 lb trailer. Adjusting it properly, I'm able to brake as though there were no trailer at all. Set it, and forget it. It doesn't get any easier than that. 735792

  • Brake Controller Connector Location on a 2004 Ford F-250
    To connect your Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 to your 2004 Ford F-250 you will need the Adapter # 3035-P which connects to a plug under your driver side dash. Typically the OEM connector can be seen pretty easily but for your vehicle you actually have to take that panel off that is under your steering wheel. The connector will be on the right side after you take the panel off. I have attached a picture of this as well as a video of our team installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 with...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation and Install for 2004 Chevy Avalanche 1500
    Your 2004 Chevy Avalanche that has a factory 7-way at the rear of the vehicle is factory pre-wired for a brake controller but you will need a quick-install connector part # 3015-P to connect to the port of the junction box under the dash of your truck. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses...

  • Installing a Tekonsha Voyager Electric Trailer Brake Controller in a 2011 Volkswagen Touareg
    I've linked an article that you might find helpful on installing a brake controller in a Volkswagen Touareg like your 2011. I confirmed with Tekonsha that you will need to install a 12V, normally open relay. For the install: Obtain locally, a 12 volt, normally open relay. Connect the ground terminal (85) of the relay to a ground under the dash. Connect the trigger terminal (86) of the relay to pin #3 of the brake control connector. Connect the red wire from the brake control to...

  • Troubleshooting Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller
    Has the controller ever worked properly, and the malfunction came up recently, or has it never worked? I would recommend you begin by reviewing the wiring connections, especially the red wire. The red controller wire should be connected to the cold side of the brake stoplight switch. The circuit you tap the red wire into should ONLY show voltage when the brake pedal is pressed, not when the headlights or the turn signals are activated. My suspicion is that this wire is tapped into the...

  • Troubleshooting Weak Trailer Brake Magnets with a Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller
    I can help you figure out what voltage should be coming down the brake output circuit on your trailer. If you have 10-12 inch brakes you should be getting 7.5-8.2 amps at 12 volts on the brake output circuit. If you have 7 inch brakes you should be getting 6.3-6.8 amps at 12 volts on the brake output circuit. If you are getting that voltage and the magnet is still not working, I would check for a worn magnet, a loose connection, or a bad ground. All of these could be causing the...

  • How to Turn off Tekonsha Voyager's Green Light
    When the green light of the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 is on, it signifies that your trailer is connected, so the green light will go off when the trailer is disconnected. While it is a good idea to disconnect the trailer, according to Tekonsha, the green light "draws 5 milliamperes of current from tow vehicle. It would take over 10,000 hours to drain the tow vehicle battery."

  • How to Splice the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 to a 2005 Ford F-150 for Installation
    If you have the tow package on your 2005 Ford F-150 then you should just need the Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3035-P to install the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 to the connector under your drivers side dash. However, if you do not have the connector and/or you are just splicing the controller wiring into the harness on your F-150 then it sounds like you are on the right track. Just be sure to connect the following wires from the Voyager to the following functions: Blue - 7-Way Output to Trailer Black...

  • 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...

  • Installing Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller on 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    On your Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller # 39510, the wire colors and functions are as follows: White is ground Black is 12 volt power Blue is output to the trailer brakes Red is input from the stop light switch If you are referring to a standalone pigtail harness that came with the vehicle, there should hopefully be labels on the wires that indicate their function. Based on my research, it looks like the black wire on the factory harness should be for ground, which will...

  • How Does Auto-Leveling Capability Simplify Installation of a Trailer Brake Controller
    The Tekonsha Voyager Proportional Trailer Brake Controller # 39510 will install in a 2002 GMC Sierra (if it is equipped with a factory 7-way) using quick-connect wiring adapter # 3025-P, which plugs in under the dash as shown in the linked video at the 4:54 mark. A brake controller that offers automatic leveling, such as the Prodigy P3 # 90195, does not require that the mounting position be exactly straight in order for it to operate properly. The Voyager does require that it is mounted...

  • Troubleshooting No Green Light on the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller # 39510
    Are you seeing no light when you have your trailer connected? The green light should be coming on if the Voyager # 39510 senses a trailer is connected to the 7-Way on the tow vehicle. If your trailer is connected to your tow vehicle but the green light isn't coming on then you have a loose power or ground connection so you will want to inspect your tow vehicle/trailer connector and any wiring for those circuits. If this didn't start happening until you installed the new brakes on your...

  • Are Trailer Brake Controllers Vehicle-Specific
    Trailer brake controllers such as the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 are not vehicle-specific but the parts required to install one can be specific to a year/make/model vehicle. For instance, many pickups have a port under the dash to allow quick plug-in installation of the Voyager, such as wiring adapter # 22292 which works for Fords. To find the correct harness you can enter your vehicle info into our Fit Guide. You can also always hardwire a controller using our all-inclusive kit # ETBC7....

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for Towing Trailer Through the Mountains
    Most modern proportional brake controllers that use accelerometers and not a pendulum will not apply the brakes on steep grades unless you step on the brake pedal. The Voyager # 39510 does not have an accelerometer and requires manual leveling so I do not recommend it for mountains. I recommend the P2, # 90885, as the best option for mountain driving. A time delay controller would not send any power back unless you stepped on the brake pedal or used the manual override. Because the amount...
