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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Installing Redarc Tow-Pro Brake Controller on 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited with Tow Package
  • If your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited is equipped with the factory tow package, which should include a 7-Way connector at the rear bumper (you can check to be sure), the only additional components you will need outside of the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 itself is the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3073-P and Tow Pro Adapter # 331-TPH-017. The Tekonsha Plug-In Adapter will simply get plugged into the factory port beneath the dash of your Wrangler at one...

  • How to Make Custom Adapter to Install Redarc Tow Pro Elite on 2020 Toyota 4Runner
  • You are correct, there isn't a custom wiring adapter available that would have a plug to connect to the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 on one end and another plug to match the factory brake controller port on your 2020 Toyota 4Runner on the other end. 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Brake Controller Port Location on a 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
  • According to my research, if your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 came with a factory 7-way trailer connector then you will have the brake controller connector pre-wired. 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. Once you locate this connector you can then install the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 using the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer...

  • 2020 Jeep Gladiator Trailer Brake Controller With Wiring Harness

The leading manufacturer, Tekonsha, took their time and made a brake controller harness that has proven to work for a 2020 Jeep Gladiator with the factory tow package, the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers - Jeep # 3073-P.

He said that they have actually found that the need for the CPU to be flashed on the 2018 (as well as 2017 and 2019) Ford F-150s seems to be random after installing the controller. They have installed many and they have heard from many customers where a trip to the dealer wasn't necessary. They have also found some that did need to be flashed for the truck to recognize...

  • Mounting the Autowbrake to a Cargo Rack Above the Trailer Frame
  • I have a solution for you, but I spoke with my contact over at Autowbrake and they expressed some concern that mounting this on a cargo rack might not provide the most stable mounting point for an Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001. If this cargo rack moves around at all with the sway of the trailer, it's going to cause some brake pulsing that will be troublesome. If the rack is secured by 4 legs and doesn't move around on the front of the trailer tongue, you may be able to...

The Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 that you purchased for your 2006 BMW X5 just needs the basic trailer lighting functions and 12V power to be fully operational. A 4-Way Flat connector like the popular Tekonsha ZCI # 119250KIT provides the basic trailer lighting functions so once that is installed you simply need to install the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L.

It's weird and you'd think they'd have it figured out by now but the only brake controllers that work with EOH style brakes like what your trailer has are ones that were designed for that style of brakes and are aftermarket like our Prodigy P3 part # 90195.

Between these two brake controllers though I do recommend going with the Redarc # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 for a couple of reasons. The first reason is an aesthetic one.

  • The Tekonsha Prodigy P3, part # 90195, is an excellent choice to upgrade the brake controller on your 2019 Toyota Tundra. Many factory brake controllers do not give the versatility and level of control that comes with the P3, which is why so many end up replacing theirs with the P3. I've linked to a video review of this controller so you can see what I mean. As of yet, there is no plug-in adapter for the P3 on a 2019 Tundra, but there is still a way to get it hooked up.

  • What is Required to Use Curt Echo Trailer Brake Controller
  • To use the Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 your vehicle only needs 12 volt, ground, and turn signals connected to its 7-way socket. What this means is you do not need the brake signal from the 7-way. For example, if you used a 4-to-7 way adapter such as # 30717, there will not be an output wire from the Echo to connect to, so you could simply tie that wire off, as you can see by the accompanying diagram. Apart from that the only other thing required is that your...

If you check out the attached picture and installation video you can see that we mounted it in the center console for one application. If you would like a clean looking installation you can use the...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation and Install for 2020 Subaru Ascent
  • I'd give the Tekonsha # 90195 the edge for ease of use. The full LCD display provides the status of your braking system at a glance, while the # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 Redarc Tow Pro Elite uses colored LED's to indicate problems. The display of the P3 is much more intuitive and user-friendly. However, some folks absolutely hate the appearance of a typical brake controller and want it to be as hidden as possible. If you fall into that camp, the Redarc Tow Pro Elite might be a better choice. Performance...

  • Parts Needed to Install Brake Controller in 2018 Chevy Express 2500

The LCD screen is also a great feature that makes operation much easier than many other similar controllers. The wiring part will vary depending on what you already have installed on your vehicle.

  • Comparing Autobrake and Prodigy RF Brake Controllers
  • Both the AutowBrake part # 3430001 and the Prodigy RF part # 90250 are excellent options for trailer mounted brake controllers. The Autowbrake is designed for more of a permanent install as it hardwires directly to the trailer's wiring and is a bit smaller. It uses what looks like a key fob too for a remote. The RF connects by plugging the trailer's 7-way into it and then it's 7-way into the vehicle's 7-way socket. It's a little easier but maybe not quite as permanent. It's a bit larger...

  • The best brake controller I can recommend for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee is the Redarc Tow Pro part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 with the custom fit harness for your vehicle part # 3014-S. The reason I recommend this brake controller is because unlike other bulkier brake controllers the only thing that mounts on the dash or center console is a small knob that is used to control it. If you check out the picture I attached you'll see how small of a foot print the controller takes up. The rest of the controller...

  • How to Add a Brake Controller to a 2015 BMW X5
