Expert Answers about Warner

  • Towing a Trailer with Electric Brakes with a Semi Tractor with Air Brakes
  • To tow your trailer that uses an RV style 7-way blade style connector with your semi that has a 7-pin connector, you need to construct an adapter that will also combine the brake signal into the right and left directional signal pins. This can be done by using a female 7-pin socket # PK11720 to accept the plug from the semi, a tail light converter # 119178 and a female 7-way RV blade-style socket # PK12-707E. The converter would be wired in between both sockets to combine the brake...

  • How to Convert Trailers Air Brakes to Electric Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control# 1300-80, which you reference, is designed for towing vehicles that have air brakes and trailers that have electric brakes. If you want to convert your trailer's air brakes to electric brakes you will want to remove the air brakes and then install the electric brakes from scratch. You will need several items to add electric brakes to your trailer. Starting with the trailer you will need a hub and drum that matches the bearings and seal on your trailer...

  • How To Control The Electric Brakes On A Trailer Being Towed By Multiple Trucks With Air Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, part # 1300-80, is designed for use with air brake systems of tow vehicles and automatically operates electric trailer brakes in synchronization with air brakes. This part has to be installed on the tow vehicle with an air brake system. It is not designed to be used on the trailer with electric brakes being towed by various trucks with air brakes. If the trucks you hire have a 7-way trailer connector on them I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy...

  • Brake Control Recommend for a Sterling Tractor with Air Brakes and a Trailer with Electric Brakes

On the Air Utility Brake Control, in addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The blue wire will go back to the rear your Sterling Tractor and attach to brake controller circuit of your vehicles trailer connector. The black wire will need to attach to a 12 volt power...

  • Will Warner Air Brake Control Work on an RV with Air Brakes Towing Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, # 1300-80, will work with the air brakes on your Alfa motor home and trailers with electric brakes, but not the 2008 Lincoln MKX (which would require a different type of braking system like the Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Proportional Braking System, # RM-9400). On the Air Utility Brake Control, in addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The black wire provides power to the unit,...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2003 Sterling Acterra Dump Truck
  • I will be happy to explain how to install an electric brake controller in your dump truck. First, if the truck does not have a trailer connector at all you will need to add a 4-Way first. If the truck has the brake lights and turn signals on the same bulb then you can use # 18252. If the dump truck has separate turn signals from the brake lights you can use # 119178KIT. Next you will need to install a 4- and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. This kits includes the 7-Way and the wiring/accessories...

  • Will Warner Brake Control #1300-80 work on Tractor with Air Brakes and Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, part # 1300-80 will work on your International tractor with air brakes towing your trailer with electric brakes. If the trailer has an electric over hydraulic system this control will NOT operate the electric over hydraulic unit. On the Air Utility Brake Control, in addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The blue wire will go to the rear of your tractor and attach to brake controller...

  • Brake Controller Recommend 2011 International 7400 with Air Brakes for Trailer w Electric Brakes
  • For a brake controller designed to be installed on a vehicle with air brakes to control the electric brakes of a trailer you would want the Brake Controller # 1300-80. This controller will be able to sense the amount of braking pressure you are applying and will correctly apply the trailer brakes in proportion to this. I attached a review video for you to check out for this controller as well.

  • Does the Warner Air Utility Brake Controller # 1300-80 Have a Proportional or Fixed Output
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Controller, # 1300-80, is a proportional brake controller. There is a pressure sensor in the unit that sends a certain amount of voltage back to the trailer brakes based on the amount of pressure going through the tow vehicles air brake system. The unit also has a manual override lever for emergency braking situations. In addition to connecting to the air brake system, there are also 3 wires that will need to be connected. The blue wire will go back to the...

  • Will the Warner Air Brake Control Work Towing a Trailer with Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • Since your trailer has electric over hydraulic brakes the best way to go would be to use a electronic brake controller that is compatible with the electric over hydraulic brakes on your trailer. Even though your Freightliner has air brakes, there is still a brake circuit that activates the brake lights on the vehicle that can be used to activate an electric over hydraulic compatible brake controller. The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, item # 1300-80, can be used to power electric...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a Freightliner FL-60 Towing Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • The part # 1300-80 is a Warner brake controller so I am not sure how to answer your first question. As long as your Freightliner has a 12 volt electrical system a much easier to use and less expensive option would be a proportional electric brake controller like the part # 90885. This controller uses an accelerometer to sense the amount of braking your vehicle is doing and will apply the brakes proportionately. I attached a review video and a help article on installing brake controllers...

  • Warner Air Utility Brake Control Compatability With Dexter Hydraulic Disc Brakes on Trailer
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, part # 1300-80 is designed for use with air brake systems of tow vehicles and automatically operates electric trailer brakes in synchronization with air brakes. Disk brakes are hydraulic so this system is not designed to work with them. If the trailer has an electric over hydraulic system this control will NOT operate the electric over hydraulic unit. If your trailer has a surge coupler and hydraulic disk brakes this unit is not designed for...

  • Installing a Brake Controller and 7-Way on a Vehicle that has Air Brakes
  • There is no brake output circuit on a 4-Way to activate electric trailer brakes so you would have to install a 7-Way on the tow vehicle. To do this I recommend # ETBC7. With it you will plug in the 4-Way to get the lighting functions for the trailer and then the remaining connections will be hardwired including the electric brake circuit. I have included links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation. One thing to look for though is the brake controller red wire connection. Many...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2007 Prevost Bus RV Towing 16 feet Car Trailer
  • All things considered I would go with a proportional electric brake controller before I would use the Warner Air Brake Controller # 1300-80. Both offer proportional braking power for the trailer, but the electric brake controller is much less expensive and installs easier. The brake controller we recommend the most is the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885. The reason for this is because of how easy it installs and how well it works. The Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2015 Freightliner Coronado with Air Brakes
  • For your 2015 Freightliner Coronado with air brakes you can still use a regular electric brake controller. The type of braking system on the tow vehicle will not determine the type of controller you can use. A brake controller will have to be hardwired in since there isn't a plug and play harness for your truck. The first thing you would need is a 4-Way trailer connector if the vehicle does not already have any trailer connector. If the truck has brake lights and turn signals on the...

  • Brake Controller for Vehicle w Air Brakes to Control Brakes On Trailer with Electric Over Hydraulic
  • I have a less expensive option, but the brake controller part # 1300-80 that you referenced is not designed to work with electric over hydraulic actuators so it would not be a great solution for you. Instead you would need an electric brake controller that will work with the EOH actuators. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is...

  • Troubleshooting a Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80 Installed on a 2000 International Truck
  • The Warner Brake Controller # 1300-80 is designed to allow trucks with air brakes to pull a trailer with electric brakes. Please note it is not compatible with electric-over-hydraulic trailer brakes. In a separate email I have forwarded the installation instructions for this product. Installation requires that you tap into your truck airlines and provide your own 3-way tees and tubing from the truck manufacturer. You may also need a double-check valve (check with International using...

  • How to Adjust Braking Force on Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80
  • The braking force level on the Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80 is adjusted by rotating the black knob on the side of the housing either clockwise for more force or counter-clockwise for less, in the same way that a volume knob operates. The metal knob itself has a legend stamped into the top surface to indicate this. In a separate email I will forward to you the complete written installation and operation instructions.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2006 International CXT Towing Multiple Trailers
  • You have a number of brake controllers that will allow you to control your trailer brakes when towing with your 2006 International CXT. One thing to keep in mind is that boat trailers with surge brakes will either have an actuating coupler or an electric-over-hydraulic actuator which allows the hydraulic brakes to be controlled by a brake controller in the tow vehicle. A brake controller will only control the brakes on your boat trailers if they have an electric-over-hydraulic actuator....

  • Recommended Brake Controller For 1995 International With Air Brakes Towing EOH Trailer
  • The best option I can recommend for you is to use an electronic brake controller that will work with your electric over hydraulic brakes on your trailer. You said your International has air brakes but there is still a brake circuit that activates the brake lights on your truck so you can use that circuit to activate the brake controller. Part # 1300-80 can power electric brakes but is not recommended for electric over hydraulic. I recommend using the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, part...

  • Will the Warner Air Utility Brake Control Be Compatible With a 2002 International 4400
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Control, # 1300-80, will work on your 2002 International 4400 truck as long as you have an air line connection and trailer connector to plug your trailer up to your truck. You will need to wire the three wires coming out of the Warner controller as followed: BLACK is to 12-volt power, the RED will wire to the your brake light switch on your brake pedal, and the BLUE wire will wire into the 7-way connector to run the brake signal to the trailer when it is...

  • Function of the Blue Wire for the Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80
  • The blue wire of the Warner Air Utility Brake Control # 1300-80 gets run to the brake output circuit of the trailer connector that is used on the tow vehicle. This is the circuit that carries the braking power for the trailer's brakes. I attached a diagram that shows how this controller wires to a vehicle for you to check out as well.

  • Wiring Install Directions for Warner Trailer Brake Controller # 1300-80
  • The black wire of the Warner controller part # 1300-80 is for the 12 volt power source. This powers the controller. The red wire will need to attach to the output side of the truck or tractor's stoplight switch. The blue wire goes to the brake output circuit of the trailer connector. This carries the voltage to the trailer brake assemblies.

  • Can the Warner Air Utility Brake Control Be Used in FMVSS 121 Systems
  • The Warner Air Utility Brake Controller # 1300-80 may be used in FMVSS 121 systems. When connecting the brake controller, you will likely need to contact the air brake system manufacturer to get the proper three-way t-tubing and double check that you need it for hooking this to your air brake system on your truck or your tractor. This t-fitting will allow the controller to tap into your vehicle's air brake system. In addition to connecting to the air brake system, you will also...

  • What Components Are Needed To Convert Sixties Trailer From Air Brakes To Electric
  • Sounds like a big project to undertake. I have attached a helpful article that explains all of the components needed to add electric brakes to a trailer you can check out. Unfortunately, we do not have hubs and drums designed to work with 20 inch wheels, so I would not be able to recommend any of the systems we have to offer. Another consideration is the brake mounting flange. If you do not have a brake mounting flange on your axle, you would need to have a certified welder install...

  • Can the Warner Brake Controller # 1300-80 be Installed on a Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • The Warner Brake Controller # 1300-80 that you referenced is designed to activate electric trailer brakes. It uses air pressure to determine how much braking power to apply. If your trailer has a combination of electric and air brakes you could install this on your trailer and tap into the air brake system to also apply the electric brakes.
