Adjustable, Easy to Read OLED Display

Curt Assure OLED Display

The high-quality OLED display on this brake controller makes the screen easy to read at a glance. The text is large and you can tilt the screen to the angle that makes it easy for you to see. Instead of displaying codes that you have to look up, this display shows full-text descriptions of errors so you can quickly address any problems that come up.


Built-In Controls for Adjustable Power

Curt Assure braking output
Braking Output: Braking output is the maximum amount of power that will be applied to your trailer's brakes. How much braking output you need is determined by the weight of your trailer; a heavier trailer will need more power to bring it to a stop. Use the + and - buttons to set the output. You want to set the braking output as high as you can without locking up the brakes. Once you've set up the brake controller the first time, you shouldn't need to adjust this setting unless the trailer load changes, you switch trailers, or road conditions change. The OLED display will show the current output setting being used.


Sensitivity: Once you have the output set, you can fine-tune the power by adjusting the sensitivity of the internal sensor. This controls the aggressiveness of your trailer's braking, meaning how quickly the brakes reach the set output level. You can adjust this when you're towing heavy loads and you need more umph to bring your trailer to a stop. Your tow vehicle doesn't need that much power to brake in time, but your heavy trailer does. The sensitivity setting gets the braking power to your trailer brakes faster and with more intensity so that it doesn't push your tow vehicle forward.


There are 9 sensitivity levels (boost levels), with 1 being the least sensitive. At level 9, the sensitivity of the internal sensor is as high as it can go. Press both buttons at once to switch into the sensitivity mode and adjust to the level you need for smooth, safe braking. When you change the setting, the display on the Assure will flash the level before reverting back to showing the power output.


Curt Assure braking output
Manual Control: The manual override button on the Curt Assure is pressure sensitive for precise braking power. When you press the button, the trailer's brakes will be activated with the same amount of force, without activating the brakes on your tow vehicle. This is great for stopping sway or controlling your trailer's momentum in emergencies. The braking intensity will be indicated on the OLED display when you press this button.


Safety Features

The Assure offers key safety features to prevent damage to various components of your towing setup. This starts with built-in protection against shorts and positive and negative power reversal, as well as continous diagnostic checks to alert you to any potential problems as they come up. To minimize the drain on your vehicle's battery, the controller will automatically go into power-saving mode when not in use. This feature will turn on after 30 minutes of inactivity and turn off again the moment you press the brake pedal.


Another great way that the Assure protects the longevity of your setup is a hold feature that saves wear on your brakes. When you're waiting at a red light, you don't need your trailer brakes on at full power. The longer you sit there, the more they will overheat. But with the Assure, any time your tow vehicle and trailer are at a standstill for a prolonged period of time, the controller will reduce the power output to the brakes. This will keep your trailer in place while saving your brakes.


Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

The self-leveling feature of the Assure ensures that the brake controller continues to function even as you drive up steep hills or through the mountains. Simply mount it in your cab at a vertical angle within 90 degrees, and the controller will level itself automatically. This makes the installation that much easier. But keep in mind that the Assure must be horizontally level and parallel with the direction of travel to work correctly.


Curt Assure Trailer Brake Controller Mounting and Installation

Installation is a snap. If your vehicle already has a plug-in brake controller wiring harness, just connect the unit to it. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a vehicle-specific wiring harness (sold separately) to plug into. If a harness is unavailable for your vehicle, hardwiring will be necessary.


Installation Accessories

See also etrailer.com's exclusive 7- and 4-way brake control installation kit (ETBC7 - sold separately) if you don't already have a 7-way plug at the back of your vehicle.


Note: If a custom brake control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, either a 20-amp or 30-amp circuit breaker (sold separately) may be required for installation.


Proportional Braking

What is proportional Braking

The Curt Assure brake controller comes equipped with proportional braking to give you the best towing experience. Proportional braking means that your trailer brakes mimic your tow vehicle's brakes. If you slam on the brakes in your vehicle, your trailer brakes will activate with the same intensity; if you brake lightly, your trailer brakes lightly too. The trailer's braking is in proportion to your vehicle's braking. This saves wear and tear on the tires and the brakes on both your vehicle and trailer.


The Assure uses an internal inertia sensor to detect how your vehicle is braking so it can send the right amount of braking power to your trailer. It measures the inertia of your tow vehicle and activates the trailer's brakes to slow at the same rate. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.

The resources at etrailer.com made my purchase easy. By having specific truck lookup ,correct wite adapter and specific product videos. Looking forward to my first trip with curt assure brake controller.




by:

2006 Dodge Ram. Easy install. Plug it in and tie up the wires. I put a wire protector sleeve to cover the wires coming out of the controller.




by:

The directions on this item are horrible. I finally figured it out and was able to install it onto my Ram 1500, but only after spending hours trying to make everything fit right. If you're looking for a hitch setup to pull a trailer long distances, I would advise you to look at other options. This will work for my short trips with my half-ton pickup, but I would not want to pull anything more than 50 miles with this setup.




by:

VERY easy install. As mentioned in other reviews the hardest part is finding the factory plug in for a 2017 Tacoma. Toyota tucked it way in the back behind a wire bundle. Picture attached for reference.




by:

Controller worked great. Stops smoothly and properly. The only problem is when I disconnect the trailer the display continues to say there’s a problem and won’t stop until I unplug it. Called technical for help and he said there’s a short somewhere but I haven’t found any short or cause.




by:

Noah A did a fantastic job of making sure I had the right product and referred me to their video library for installation instructions. Absolutely a fantastic representative of this company 5 out of 5 stars for sure. Good follow up as well!




by:

Much smoother braking than my previous controller that the RV dealer put in. Curt has excellent customer service.
