  • 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.

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...

  • 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...

Here's how you determine if you have a smart alternator or not: 1. Locate your main vehicle battery 2. Start the engine, ensuring any fans, radio, lights etc....

  • Recommended Electric Brake Controller for Off-Road Trailering

  • 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. This is simply due to the sleek design and factory look. 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...

  • The Redarc Tow Pro Elite brake controller part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 is a really great option that only needs the install harness part # 331-TPH-007 to install in your 2018 Ford F-150.

  • Installing REDARC Tow-Pro Elite Brake Controller in 2018 Toyota Tundra
  • At this time there is not a wiring harness compatible with the 2018 Toyota Tundra models from any of our manufacturers. You will either need to use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to confirm the pin functions on that harness you pictured and splice into it or you will need to hardwire your 7-way to your Tow-Pro brake controller using # 5506 or # ETBC7. I've attached a couple articles to assist.

  • Should Proportional or Time-Delayed Controller be Used for Towing a Horse Trailer with a 2018 Tacoma
  • If you are towing on level ground or rolling hill areas then a proportional brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 is preferred. This kind of controller senses the deceleration of your tow 2018 Toyota Tacoma and applies the brakes in your horse trailer at the same time and with the same intensity as the brakes in your Tacoma. This gives you a very smooth braking experience that your horses will appreciate. Really one of the only times that a time-delayed controller like the Pilot...

  • Is the Factory Integrated Brake Controller on a 2015 Ram 1500 Proportional or Time Delayed
  • The factory integrated brake controller for the 2015 Ram 1500 is proportional. For more information on it I would peruse the Ram website. We do get a lot of questions about the performance of the factory controllers and people wanting to switch to an aftermarket controller, especially if they are towing a trailer with electric over hydraulic brakes. If you are in the market for a new truck you might want to consider skipping the factory controller option and get an aftermarket one....

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 second is only in the Elite and its ability to switch...

  • 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.
