Expert Answers about Trailer Brake Controller


  • Redarc Tow Pro Liberty Brake Controller, Harness and Install Panel for 2020 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Redarc Tow Pro Liberty # RED24FR is a really great brake controller choice for your 2020 Toyota Tacoma. All you need to install it is the harness part # RED99FR. This is by far the best value brake controller out there as you get a proportional controller that only requires a very small knob that mounts on the dash instead of a much larger controller. This does work with the install panel part # 331-TPSI-007.

  • What is Difference Between Redarc Tow Pro Liberty and Elite
  • The Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty # RED24FR is the way to go over the Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 as you get the nicer functions of the Elite at a lower price. The Elite has the ability to be the more preferred proportional style of controller as well as a time-delayed whereas the Liberty gives you just the proportional setting which is what you'd want to use with your towing setup. Proportional controllers sense how hard you are applying the vehicle brakes whereas time delayed means it puts a preset...

  • Comparing the Curt Spectrum Brake Controller to Redarc Tow-Pro Elite
  • By all accounts the Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller # C51170 works well and is easy to use and install on most vehicles. It is a brand new item so not a lot of feedback has come in on it. I did learn a few things though after speaking with our install team about this controller. First, compared to the Redarc controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, the Curt Spectrum is easier to install. It can be surface mounted meaning that drilling is not necessarily required (depends on how you run the...

  • Redarc Tow Pro Liberty RED24FR Trailer Brake Controller on 2019 Jeep Cherokee
  • The Redarc Tow Pro Liberty Brake Controller, part # RED24FR is compatible with either electric or electric over hydraulic brakes, so it'll work just fine with your trailer. Electric over hydraulic brakes use a brake controller, but on the trailer there's a hydraulic pump that operates the brakes. If your Cherokee has the factory 7-way trailer connector, the only other part you'll need is the # RED67FR plug and play harness. The connector is located to the right of the steering wheel...

  • Where to Mount Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Brake Controller on 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, along with the Plug-In Adapter # 3064-P for easy installation, is an excellent choice for your 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500. One of the many benefits of the Tow-Pro Elite is the small, unassuming profile of the control knob itself, which basically allows it to mount anywhere you have the space. I went through our customer reviews and it looks like there should be a great location on the left side of the steering wheel on...

  • Can I Install the RedArc Tow Pro Liberty in a 2019 Honda Ridgeline
  • Yes. The RedArc Tow Pro Liberty # RED24FR is a great choice since it installs out of the way and provides you with proportional braking for your tandem axle trailer. You'll want to use the Plug-and-Play Wiring Harness for Redarc Tow-Pro Trailer Brake Controller # RED59FR if you've got a factory 7 way connection on your 2019 Honda Ridgeline, otherwise you would need to hard-wire the controller in using # RED69FR.

  • Redarc Tow Pro Elite Brake Controller Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Tacoma
  • To install the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 in your 2018 Toyota Tacoma only requires the correct install harness # 3031-S. This connector attaches directly to the connector you have under the dash of your 2018 Toyota and the other end wires to the brake controllers wiring with butt connectors. The colors all match between the two harnesses. The smallest mount plate we have for this controller is 1-1/4" tall x 7/8" wide and is part # 331-TPSI-002.

  • How to Make Custom Adapter to Install Redarc Tow Pro Elite on 2020 Toyota 4Runner

Fortunately, there's a simple way to make one. The white connector on the Hopkins Plug-in Simple Brake Wiring Adapter # HM47815 is made to fit the factory brake controller plug under your dash, but the black...

  • Do I Need To Wire The Blue Wire From The ETBC7 To Install Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller
  • You are correct you will need the 4-pole flat part # 118727 and the part # etbc7 to get a 7-way on the back of the Jeep to power the Autowbrake part # 3430001. The blue wire from the ETBC7 to the front of the vehicle is not needed because the Autowbrake does not use the brake light switch signal to operate. With a traditional brake controller that uses the brake light switch signal, the blue wire would be routed to the front of the vehicle to the brake controller. Then there would be a...

You can easily confirm this by using a circuit tester # PTW2992 and checking out the 12V power pin (see attached).

The P3 is a traditionally mounted brake controller, the box would mount to the underside or bottom slope of your dash, within easy reach of the driver, preferably to the right of the steering column. The on-board diagnostics provided are easy to read and understand at a glance. The P3 is an outsanding piece of equipment that works great, but...

This pre-wired connector should be under the driver side seat which you can see in the attached photo. The connector is green with four pins inside.

  • Recommended Brake Controller for a 2020 Toyota 4Runner
  • It's my understanding that your 2020 Toyota 4Runner should have come with a connector already installed up and behind the emergency brake pedal. If all you found was a bundle of wires and then a connector in your glove box then you should be able to either install that connector so that you can use an adapter, or you can possibly bypass the harness you found if the wiring under your dash is long enough. I can make some recommendations for both options but I will say that I don't know what...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation More Reliable than Curt Spectrum
  • Curt should cover that. But the Curt controllers in general are just less reliable than the P2 part # 90885 that you mentioned. If I was going to recommend you the best option I'd say go back to the P2, see if Curt might warranty the controller, and then sell it used.

If the trailer does have brakes then I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 as this is one of our most popular options.
