Expert Answers about Redarc

  • 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 inch by 1-1/2 inch and is part # 331-TPSI-001.

  • Installing Redarc Tow-Pro Elite in 2018 Toyota 4Runner Using Tekonsha Wiring Harness
  • For the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 is an easy installation with the Tekonsha Wiring Harness # 3041-P. You will just use the white connector of the harness along with the wire length and cut off the other end of the connector in order to use butt connectors provided with the Redarc system and it's harness. It is simply color matching and securing the ground to a metal screw utilizing the eyelet. You can see this installation in the attached video and...

  • Best Hidden Brake Controller for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I do have a similar type of brake controller for you but the Reese Towpower Compact IQ Brake Controller part 8508700 is just not a very popular option hence why we do not currently carry this controller. Instead, I recommend the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 which has the same hideaway design as the Compact IQ. The Tow-Pro Elite is one of the most innovative controllers on the market. The control box that this controller uses can be mounted anywhere...

  • Correct Wiring Adapter for Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller on 2018 Toyota Tacoma
  • The wiring adapters that you asked about for the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 will function the same though # 3031-S is the newer adapter and the one I recommend for your Redarc brake controller. As for a weight distribution hitch, to choose the best system, you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2018...

  • Battery Charger to Charge a 12 Volt Trailer Battery Using a Truck Alternator
  • The Redarc DC to DC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D is going to be the best option that we have available. You would have an input wire from the truck's alternator and output wires to the battery on the trailer. The 12 volt circuit on the 7-Way may not provide the best results which is why I recommend using the alternator. And if you are so inclined you could also hook up solar panels to this charger for times when the trailer is parked without the truck present.

  • Recommended Vehicle to Trailer Battery Charger for Trailer Battery
  • Without hesitation, I recommend using a 7-way trailer connector and using the 12V charge line you find at the 1 o'clock position to run to a battery charger and then your trailer battery. Most charge lines only take whatever amperage is not being used by the vehicle and sends it to the trailer battery providing a maintenance charge. Your trailer clearance lights will run without issue using either plug and drawing power from your vehicle, so the 7-way will serve you well for that function...

  • 12 Volt 5th Wheel Trailer Battery Charge While Towing
  • The pin at the 1 o'clock position is the 12V power used to provide the "maintenance" charge to your battery. The issue you found with your F-250 is the same as what you will find with all vehicles. The charge provided to your trailer battery is minimal when driving because even though it is 12V, it is only about 2-4 amps. This is because your vehicle alternator is generating around 14 amps when your truck is running and only the extra not being used to maintain your truck's electrical...

  • Will RedArc Battery Charger Work With Solar Panel and 7-Way to Charge Camper Battery
  • I reached out to a representative of Redarc who told me that the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D is the correct charger for your application and there will be no interference or conflict with the charges the battery is getting from the solar set up. The input to the BCDC Charger will be sourced from your F-250's start battery (which is going to be on the passenger's side of your 2-battery set-up) with the 60-Amp MIDI Fuse Kit for Redarc In-Vehicle 40-Amp BCDC Battery...

  • Comparing Redarc Tow-Pro and Tow-Pro Elite to Other Brake Controllers On The Market
  • The Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 3 Axles - Proportional # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 and the Tow-Pro # 331-EBRHV2 are different from their competitors in two ways. The first is their mounting location. The size of the controller allows mounting under the dash and puts the control within any normal dash mount location for a clean look that you won't hit your knees on and will allow for the newer knee air bag systems. The second is only in the Elite and its ability to switch...

  • Recommended Electric Brake Controller for Off-Road Trailering
  • I have not heard of such a thing. What your friend may be talking about is an Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator that allows you to use an electric brake controller on a trailer with hydraulic brakes. This will not work for a trailer with electric brakes. The good news is that for your off road trailering, there is a brake controller that is designed to work well for your application. It is the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2. This controller fits...

  • Can the Control Knob of the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 Replace Cigarette Lighter
  • One of the great features of the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 is the versatility when it comes to mounting the control knob. Most brake controllers need to be mounted a specific way with the controls on the face of it. Since the Tow-Pro Elite has a control knob that is seperate from the actual controller unit it allows you to mount the control knob pretty much anywhere you feel like. Although we haven't had the opportunity yet to install the control...

  • Install Harness Recommendation for Installing Redarc Tow-Pro Elite in 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
  • You are on the right track. To install the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 in your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 will require you to use the install harness part # 3016-S which is very similar to the # 3016 except it doesn't have the Tekonsha specific connector. Instead it has just the GM connector for the trucks wiring and 4 blunt cut wires to wire to the Redarc. You could use the # 3016 if you wanted to but you'd have to cut off the Tekonsha connector.

  • Does Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller Have to Draw Power from Battery
  • When powering a brake controller like the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 you have to power it directly from the vehicle battery. Mainly because it would prevent the controller from shorting out any of your vehicle's power circuit in the event of a short, but also because none of the aux power sources are going to be rated high enough for the amperage load of a brake controller. I attached a help article on installing brake controllers plus a diagram for...

  • Recommended Brake Controller and Wiring for 2018 Subaru Outback
  • For your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon, the best electric trailer brake controller is the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2.

If you don't care about the factory look, then I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 because it is an easy to use controller with the LCD screen for easy diagnostic information. I've attached videos to assist. To install a brake controller in your Outback, I recommend starting...

  • Recommended Trailer Battery Charging To Allow AC, Refrigerator, and Landing Gear To Function
  • When your trailer battery is properly charged, you should not need your vehicle connected or shore power to un your landing gear. Your trailer battery is most likely not getting the charge it needs. From your 14.28V you are getting from your 7-way connection, that will only provide a small maintenance charge to your battery and won't allow it to get over 80 charged. You would need to use a battery charger when not towing to get it up to full power to run your landing gear, fridge, and...
