Tekonsha Trailer Brake Controller - 39523

  • Tekonsha
  • Electric
  • Time Delayed Controller
  • Under-Dash Box
  • Up to 2 Axles
  • Dash Mount
  • Automatic Leveling
  • 360 Degrees

Easy-to-use brake controller activates your trailer brakes electronically when you engage the brakes in your tow vehicle. Set braking intensity to your preference and towing application.


Features:

  • Brake controller activates electric trailer brakes (sold separately)
    • Signal is sent to trailer brakes when tow-vehicle brakes are activated
  • Adjustable output control lets you determine the amount of braking force
    • Set to maximum when you travel through hilly terrain with your fully loaded trailer
    • Back off the power output when you tow a lightweight trailer
  • LED indicator on front of unit
    • Green light indicates that brakes are connected
    • Color changes to orange and then to red as the power output increases
  • Built-in manual override
  • PowerTrac can be used with trailers that have up to 2 axles (4 brake assemblies total)
  • Mounting bracket and hardware included
    • No need to mount level
  • Additional pigtail harness (sold separately) is required for complete installation
    • For some vehicle-specific applications a plug-in, vehicle-specific brake-control adapter (sold separately) can be used to further reduce installation time


Specs:

  • Dimensions: 3" wide x 5" long x 1-1/4" tall
  • Limited 5-year warranty


Unlike pendulum-style controllers, which react to the inertia that is created by your tow vehicle slowing down, the PowerTrac applies your trailer's brakes when the brake pedal in your tow vehicle is engaged. The trailer brakes will be activated with an intensity set by you. This output (amount of braking power) is adjustable to suit your preference, as well as road conditions, type of trailer and load. You can also apply the brakes manually with the integrated override.


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 nearly limitless. After mounting the unit, hardwire the end of the pigtail harness (sold separately) directly into your vehicle. For even easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for certain vehicles. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle, and the other end plugs into your controller - no hardwiring required. To transfer the PowerTrac to another vehicle or to remove it for storage, just unplug the unit and remove it from the mount.


Installation Accessories

For even 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: For vehicles without brake-control wiring adapters, a 20-amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) is required.


See also etrailer.com's exclusive 7- and 4-way brake-control installation kit (ETBC7 - sold separately) that includes all the parts necessary to install the PowerTrac brake controller.

Very happy with this product. It fit nicely in my truck and plugged right into the factory wiring harness. Total installation time was under an hour. Easy to adjust, and works perfectly with my 5th wheel trailer. I simply pulled out the little storage cubby from the dash, cut the back off, slid the controller in, bolted it together, and stuck it all back in the dash. Looks and works great.


Comments
Still great after a year. I tow a bunch of different trailers. Adjusting between trailers is a snap. Ive received lots of positive comments on how nicely it fits in the truck, like it was made to be there.

I really like the simplicity of this plug n play brake controller. I would give it 5 stars but it adjusts with a wheel/dial without any graduations on it so it’s hard to just set the gain without testing the brakes. That’s probably not really a bad thing but not as convenient as other controllers.

We have a Honda Ridgeline and needed this for our camper trailer. It was nice ordering the specific plug in wire for the Ridgeline and therefore eliminating hard wiring, just plugged it in. It was rough getting to the factory plug under the dash by the emergency brake petal switch. My hands are not small enough, ha ha. But success was had. Plugged into the controller and mounted it and u-wall-a. It works the way it is suppose to, I like that. A good quality unit that does what it is suppose to. thanks.


Comments
After a year, I dont even think about it being there. I love that. It works the way it should. When traveling with our trailer, I might adjust the controller slightly but that is it. . . .thanks etrailer and Tekonsha for such great products and service. . .you rock. . . .jim

I have a Toyota Tacoma (06). I had the controller installed in less than five minutes. One minute to gather the tools: drill/bits, screw driver, and tape. I thought tape would be helpful to hold the ground screw to the driver given the tight are under the dash. One minute to drill the ground hole. One minute to install the ground screw. One minute to plug in the cables and fish the wire under the stirring wheel to allow for the controller to be mounted in the storage area found on Tacoma trucks dash. I guess I was wrong. It only took four minutes. I did not need to put the tools away I was off to do other projects. I rate the product as good because I have not tried it on the trailer yet.


Comments
Today I used the controller out on the road, it worked great. Now I give the product a SIX star rating. Its better than a five star rating because of the reasonable price and installation of the product. Good job etrailer. Mike from Santa Fe.

Easy to install in my Toyota-Tacoma 2012. I pull my Travel Trailer and this break controller worked very well and with just a little bit adjustment. Also this item was shipped very fast.


Comments
I just installed this on my 2010 Tacoma, which was very easy. I hooked up a new trailer and I noticed right a way the brakes seem to pulse. You can see the LED flicker between red and green that appears to be synced with the brake pulsing. Does yours behave similarly? This is my first trailer and brake controller so Im not sure if its normal or not.
-- comment by: Quincy - 04/02/2014

That is not normal operation. There are two likely culprits: First, a weak or loose connection to the brake switch wire. Double check that first so the controller can positively know when you are applying brakes in the Tacoma. Second, Toyotas are known for finnicky electrical grounds. If you didn't when you installed it, run the ground wire for the controller to the negative terminal on the battery. If it is grounded to the body, the controller may not be getting sufficient ground so the brakes start to engage and the ground cuts out, and it does this over and over resulting in the pulse.

Thanks to etrailer’s video “Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee”, the installation of a Tekonsha PowerTrac controller on my 2003 Jeep was very straight forward (and I’m not a car guy!). Like in the video, I used the wiring kit (#5506). I forgot to order a pigtail wiring harness but was able to pick one up locally. Took the trailer out last weekend and the brakes worked great.

The controller works fine. It takes a second or so for them to activate and release which can take some getting use to. I am going to look into a different controller that reacts instantly with my vehicle brakes.
Bill G - 06/04/2018

Thanks for your follow up on your PowerTrac Brake controller the delay that you are describing is common with a time delay style of brake controller. A proportional brake controller will be more responsive than a time delay, and will brake in "proportion" to your vehicle braking. My recommendation would be for the Tekonsha P3 # 90195
Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional
$165.45
, since it does indeed offer top of the linke diagnostics, as well as the option to program different trailer settings. I have also linked our current offerings of proportional brake controllers for your reference.

The power cable plugged into my vehicle and worked as advertised. It is very easy to adjust while moving to keep my trailer secure. The controller has a light to tell you it is connected and working.

The control works great. Nice incremental application of wheel from nothing to hard on! Led light goes from green to red also in incremental degrees. Installation was a snap in my 2008 F150 with tow package. Just Plug in the control clip and the other end in the terminal above and to the right of the computer check terminal. Rather than have it below my dash I opted for the cove below the lighter. Etrailer did a nice job of getting out to me right away and kept me informed where this was at all the way to my door. Good Job!

  • Should Light Be On Display of PowerTrac Brake Controller without Trailer Connected
    If your 2004 Chevy Avalanche came equipped with the factory 7-Way connector installing your PowerTrac Brake Controller # 39523 should indeed just be a matter of plugging it into the factory port behind the dash using the Plug-In Adapter # 3015-P.

Proportional controllers provided the safest way to stop and they reduce wear and tear on the trailer and tow vehicle. The only advantage that a time delay controller has is that it does not...
