Warner Brake Controller - 1300-80


The Warner Air Utility Control interconnects with air brake systems of tow vehicles and automatically operates electric trailer brakes in synchronization with air brakes. It may be used in FMVSS 121 systems. The manual override feature operates trailer brakes only. The unit displaces only 2.8 cubic inches of air at 100 PSI. It is adjustable for a wide range of vehicle brake system pressures, with low pressure sensitivity that assures immediate and smooth engagement of trailer brakes. The special design of the internal multiple resistor pack provides heat sinking and heat dissipation characteristics.


Features:

  • Allows trucks with air brakes to pull a trailer with electric brakes
  • Brakes proportionally with the tow vehicle's air brake system
  • Manual override operates trailer brakes only
  • Will work on 1-4 axles or 2-8 brake assemblies on a trailer
  • Not compatible with electric over hydraulic trailer braking systems

Video Transcript for Warner Brake Controller - Proportional Controller - 1300-80 Review

Today we're going to review part number 1300-80. This is the Warner electric air or manual utility brake controller. Now this Warner air utility brake controller will work on your truck or your tractor that has air brakes. That's towing a trailer with electric brakes. This will allow the trailer to brake proportionately with the tow vehicle's air brake system. It is designed to work on one to four axles, which is two to eight brake assemblies on the trailer.

Has a manual override right over here. This will operate the trailer brakes only. Now this controller is not compatible with electric over hydraulic trailer braking systems. If you'll notice a few parts on it, right over here is your air connection for your air brakes. Right up here is an adjustment knob. This will balance the towing vehicle's brakes with the trailer brakes.

It's labeled up here. If you turn it clockwise it will say more, and if you turn it counterclockwise it will be less. That just depends on how much braking you send to the trailer. The control lever right here is the manual control lever. Any time you push down on this, as you can see, it moves the knob on top so that will give you .. if you need to manually apply the brakes for the trailer.

At the very bottom you'll see there's three wires coming out. These are your connection wires, black, a blue, and a red. Now also when you connect you will need to usually contact the air brake system manufacturer to get the proper three-way tease 01:36 tubing and double check that you sometimes need it for hooking this to your air brake system on your truck or your tractor. Now also on this brake controller in addition to connecting to the air brake system, the three wires I had mentioned that are on the bottom here need to be connected. Basically the blue wire right here, this will go to the rear of the tow vehicle and attach to the brake controller circuit of your vehicle's trailer connector. The black wire, this will need to attach to a 12-volt power source. The red wire will need to attach to the output side of the truck or tractor's stoplight switch.

Once that's all hooked up and your air line is connected, then you'll be able to use this utility brake controller. That should do it for the review on part number 1300-80, the Warner electric air or manual utility brake controller. .

  • Recommended Air Brake Controller Compatible With Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator
  • We have exactly what you need. You will want the Hayes Air Actuated Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional # HA100400C which is the only Air to Electric brake controller we carry that is compatible with electric over hydraulic brake actuators. For this installation I also recommend the Power Wire Kit for Electric Trailer Brake Controllers - 12 Gauge # BRK-ELECKIT and the Air Line Hose 1/4" # RM450700 sold by the foot. The similar Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80...

  • Operating Hydraulic Trailer Brakes with Air Brake System on Tractor Trailer
  • You can use your tractor trailer's air brakes to activate the hydraulic brakes on your hay trailer axle by using the Hayes Air Actuated Trailer Brake Controller # HA100400C along with an electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) drum brake actuator like # HBA-12 on the trailer. The Hayes controller will take in the tractor trailer's air brake pressure and convert this to an electrical output signal. This electrical brake signal will then connect to the EOH actuator which will then in turn convert...

  • Recommended Conversion from Air Brakes on Vehicle to Hydraulic Brakes on Trailer
  • For your 2009 International 4300 with air brakes you will use the Hayes Air Actuated Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional # HA100400C and then the HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes - 1,600 psi # HBA16 or if you have drum brakes # HBA-12. This combination will convert your air brakes into a proportional braking system on your trailer. The Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80 is not compatible with Electric Over Hydraulic brakes so it will...

  • Wiring Install Directions for Warner Trailer Brake Controller # 1300-80
  • The black wire of the Warner controller part # 1300-80 is for the 12 volt power source. This powers the controller. The red wire will need to attach to the output side of the truck or tractor's stoplight switch. The blue wire goes to the brake output circuit of the trailer connector. This carries the voltage to the trailer brake assemblies.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a Truck with Air Brakes and a Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • The trailer brakes work on a separate circuit than the lights. You have a couple of options to control the electric brakes on the trailer. One option is to use an air over electric brake control, # 1300-80. This unit connects to the air brakes on the truck and when the brakes are applied it sends an electric signal back to the trailer brakes. The other option, and what I would do, is to use an electric brake controller like # 90885. For either of these controllers, the red wire attaches...

  • Towing a Trailer with Electric Brakes with a Semi Tractor with Air Brakes
  • To tow your trailer that uses an RV style 7-way blade style connector with your semi that has a 7-pin connector, you need to construct an adapter that will also combine the brake signal into the right and left directional signal pins. This can be done by using a female 7-pin socket # PK11720 to accept the plug from the semi, a tail light converter # 119178 and a female 7-way RV blade-style socket # PK12-707E. The converter would be wired in between both sockets to combine the brake...

  • How To Control The Electric Brakes On A Trailer Being Towed By Multiple Trucks With Air Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, part # 1300-80, is designed for use with air brake systems of tow vehicles and automatically operates electric trailer brakes in synchronization with air brakes. This part has to be installed on the tow vehicle with an air brake system. It is not designed to be used on the trailer with electric brakes being towed by various trucks with air brakes. If the trucks you hire have a 7-way trailer connector on them I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy...

  • Can an Electric Trailer Brake Controller be Used on a 1999 Mack Truck CH600 with Air Brakes
  • If you want to use a brake controller that does not require the use of the air brakes on your Mack Truck, then you can use an electric brake controller like # 90195. You will have to hardwire it to the vehicle and you will need a 7-Way trailer connector if your do not already have one. I assume that on a truck of this size, you will have some type of trailer connector on it. It is just a matter of wiring it in correctly. On the brake controller, the white wire needs to be grounded to...

  • Will Warner Air Brake Control Work on an RV with Air Brakes Towing Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, # 1300-80, will work with the air brakes on your Alfa motor home and trailers with electric brakes, but not the 2008 Lincoln MKX (which would require a different type of braking system like the Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System, # RM-9400). On the Air Utility Brake Control, in addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The black wire provides power to the unit,...

  • Does the Warner Air Utility Brake Controller # 1300-80 Have a Proportional or Fixed Output
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Controller, # 1300-80, is a proportional brake controller. There is a pressure sensor in the unit that sends a certain amount of voltage back to the trailer brakes based on the amount of pressure going through the tow vehicles air brake system. The unit also has a manual override lever for emergency braking situations. In addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The blue wire will go back to the...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2007 Prevost Bus RV Towing 16 feet Car Trailer
  • All things considered I would go with a proportional electric brake controller before I would use the Warner Air Brake Controller # 1300-80. Both offer proportional braking power for the trailer, but the electric brake controller is much less expensive and installs easier. The brake controller we recommend the most is the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885. The reason for this is because of how easy it installs and how well it works. The Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake...

  • Will the Warner Air Utility Brake Control Be Compatible With a 2002 International 4400
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, # 1300-80, will work on your 2002 International 4400 truck as long as you have an air line connection and trailer connector to plug your trailer up to your truck. You will need to wire the three wires coming out of the Warner controller as followed: BLACK is to 12-volt power, the RED will wire to the your brake light switch on your brake pedal, and the BLUE wire will wire into the 7-way connector to run the brake signal to the trailer when it is...

  • For a brake controller designed to work in proportion with your air brakes on your 2002 Peterbilt 379EXHD that will activate the electric brakes of your trailer you would want the Warner Air Utility Brake Controller part # 1300-80 that you already checked out. All of the other electric brake controllers we offer would work as well, but none of them tie into the air brake system like the Warner does. If you wanted to go this route the Prodigy P2 controller # 90195 that you referenced...

  • Installing a Brake Controller and 7-Way on a Vehicle that has Air Brakes
  • There is no brake output circuit on a 4-Way to activate electric trailer brakes so you would have to install a 7-Way on the tow vehicle. To do this I recommend # ETBC7. With it you will plug in the 4-Way to get the lighting functions for the trailer and then the remaining connections will be hardwired including the electric brake circuit. I have included links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation. One thing to look for though is the brake controller red wire connection. Many...

  • Brake Control Recommend for a Sterling Tractor with Air Brakes and a Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • Yes, you can install this Warner Air Utility Brake Control, part # 1300-80, onto your 2000 Sterling Tractor and it would activate your electric trailer brakes. On the Air Utility Brake Control, in addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The blue wire will go back to the rear your Sterling Tractor and attach to brake controller circuit of your vehicles trailer connector. The black wire will need to attach to a 12 volt power...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for Going from Air Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80 that you referenced is not compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes so if this is the controller you have it would be the reason the brakes aren't working. For a similar controller that IS compatible you'd want the Hayes Air Actuated Trailer Brake Controller # HA100400C which installs the exact same yet was designed to also be compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes.
