  • Mounting: between -20 degrees and 70 degrees in the vertical plane
  • 5-Year limited warranty


Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner.


As long as the Voyager controller is mounted properly and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power and Sensitivity Adjustment

Getting the braking power you need for your application is simple with the Voyager. First, set up the controller as indicated in the instructions, making sure that the internal sensor is properly leveled. Then set the overall power by adjusting the power knob while you test out your rig. The power should be just enough to achieve maximum braking without locking up your trailer brakes.


Once you have the overall power set, you can fine-tune the power output by adjusting the sensitivity of the internal sensor. Use the level knob on the side of the Voyager to achieve your desired degree of intensity. Move the knob toward you (clockwise) to delay the power output, creating braking sensitivity that is ideal for lightweight setups. If you are towing a heavy load, you may want the trailer to brake more aggressively to prevent it from pushing your tow vehicle. To get more intense stopping action, turn the level knob away from you (counterclockwise).


LED Indicator

On the front of the Voyager there is an LED indicator that is designed to keep you aware of the braking action of your trailer. Typically, this light burns green to indicate that your trailer and tow vehicle are securely connected. When the light is green, only 5 milliamps are being drawn, thus minimizing drain on your vehicle's battery.


As you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, the LED will change to red. This indicates that power is being sent to the trailer brakes. The light will also burn red whenever you activate the manual override lever.


During installation and setup, this light is used to ensure that the Voyager will be able to function correctly. Proper leveling of the internal sensor is crucial to the operation of this brake controller. When the sensor is level, the LED will change to a shade of orange.


Simple Installation

The Voyager is designed to be mounted in your cab at a vertical angle that is between -20 degrees and 70 degrees.


Correct Voyager mounting90-Degree Voyager mounting

Note: The Voyager must be mounted on a level horizontal (side-to-side) plane and must be lined up with the direction of travel for the internal sensor to function properly.


Once the controller is mounted, you must level the internal sensor. First, set the overall power to maximum using the knob on the side of the controller. Then, while pressing the tow vehicle's brake pedal, adjust the level knob on the other side of the brake controller (this is the same knob that is used to fine-tune the power output) until the LED monitor is a shade of orange.


Installation requires that you either purchase a custom wiring adapter designed to plug into the Voyager or that you hardwire the controller directly into your vehicle. To hardwire the Voyager, you must remove the plug at the end of the integrated wiring harness.


Installation Accessories

For easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, one of the following will be required:

20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2- to 4-brake applications

30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 6- to 8-brake applications

Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Brake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the built-in connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To access this connector, first locate the instrument cluster finish panel in the center of you dash, near the driver's side. Carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. Plug the adaptor into the mating connector in the large gray housing behind the panel.


To install your electric brake controller you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If, however, you have a brake controller with a plug in place of the four loose wires, you can use the Tekonsha adapter.


This adapter requires no hardwiring. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 39510 Review

Today we are going to review part number 39510. This is the Tekonsha Voyager proportional brake controller. This brake controller will activate your trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicles braking action. It will automatically adjust the trailers braking based on deceleration of the towed vehicle. And it does activate immediately so there is no pausing like with your time delayed brake controllers.

It does have multiple mounting options, basically this would position within 90 degrees in a vertical plane, meaning this way. It will mount between a negative 20 which would be 20 degrees down, or a positive 70 in a vertical plane which would be up. So there is a 90 degree range. A minus 20 up to a positive 70. And horizontally, you do want this to be horizontal to the direction of travel. You do not want it to be turned that way or this way. And you can fine tune the adjustment braking power and aggressiveness right here with this knob. Right here is the LED monitor which will change color to alert you of the braking action of the trailer. The very front here you can see there is a built in slide bar manual override. This is used when you do need to in an emergency braking situation where you would need the brakes applied immediately.

Now on the back of this controller there is a plug that would plug into a harness. For an example here today we are going to use this pigtail harness, which actually has the plug on one end to fit the brake controller. And on the other end it just has the pigtail wires which will wire into your vehicle. This is a part #7894 that we do sell separately. Going to use that today to show you a demonstration. Now we also sell a plug in vehicle specific brake control wiring harness. We sell those separately. What that is, if your vehicle has a factory brake controller port, you can buy a harness for certain applications to reduce the installation time, and that harness would have the plug that would plug into the controller, and the other end instead of being the pigtails would have a plug that would match the factory brake controller port of your vehicle. So if that is available what you can do is check our fit guide online and that will tell you if your vehicle has a vehicle specific adapter available for your application.

Now this brake controller does come with the mounting bracket which mounts to the side right here, and the mounting hardware. It does come with a nice set of detailed instructions, and some pictures that will help you set up the brake controller. And again I mentioned we are going to give you a demonstration. I am going to take these pigtail wires and basically hook them up to a power source so we can show at least the light, how it changes colors. Once I get these all hooked up we will be ready to go. Ok, so we got them all hooked up to a power source. Here is the plug in. So basically we will just plug it in, turn on the power. Once you get power you will see a green light, that means it is connected. Now if the trailer was not connected, I will just unhook it here, you will see the light would not be on. So if the trailer is plugged in and connected you will see it gives a nice green light.

Basically the 1st thing you want to do is level this brake controller. And you will do that by taking this power knob and turning it all the way clockwise which will be full power. And then you would apply the brakes. And with holding the brake pedal you would go to this level adjustment knob over here and turn it. And you will see that it is green right now, and you will just start turning it to the back of the controller until you will see it will start turning to red. you can see how it changes to red, and what you want to do is then turn it back until you get a dim orange. Once you the dim orange that is your typical setting that you will want to start with. Then you can leave off the brakes. That will level the sensor on the inside. And then to adjust the power you have to do a test drive. what you will want to do is to go back to this power knob and put it at the 12 o'clock position, then go out and drive. Get it up to about 25 mph and apply the brakes. And then just adjust it from there. Application for this controller is trailers with up to four axles or eight brake assemblies. Now this is designed for use with electric brakes only. It will not work with electric over hydraulic. It does come with a five year limited warranty. That should do it for review on part number 39510 the Tekonsha Voyager proportional brake controller.

Easy install on my 2010 F 150 XLT. There are 2 possible locations for the trailer wiring harness if your vehicle did not come equipped with the mfg brake control. Consult owners manual. My harness was located below steering colum behind lower dash. I routed my harness to the left side behind the parking brake release lever. You may have to remove the outer sleeve of the factory harness depening on your vehicle. Mounted the mounting bracket with double sided foam tape and predrilled holes before screwing in place. Mounted the Pod brake control and tested. 5 stars! 557183

Comments

George to be honest I have only been able to use the controller a couple of times. We moved 3 hours north of Houston and had to leave the trailer in storage in Houston while I wait for a workshop storage unit to be built on site on our new property. The few times I have used it I was impressed. Couldnt even tell I was towing the trailercamper.

This is a good product it does the job very well but if you have different trailers I would recommend getting one that will remember a couple different settings. 565456


Comments

If you tow multiple trailers, I recommend a Tekonsha P3 part # 90195. The p3 lets you customize 5 storable settings for multiple trailers, varying loads or different drivers.

The controller works fine but it has developed a rattle on rough roads. It was a replacement for one I broke. 559720


Comments

The Voyager brake controller is an older design that uses a pendulum-style accelerometer, versus one thats solid state. This is the rattle youre hearing.

Installed in my 2011 Ford F150 with the factory trailer package and simply a plug & play install. However, the factory cable was hidden next to the OBDII connector. Just search a little and you will find it. Used the small storage compartment to install the electric brake controller and very clean looking installation. 555159

Thus far it works great. I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna and use it for a tent trailer (pop up trailer). After researching and watching etrailer.com's video on installing a brake controller on a Sienna I found that the price was best here AND the kit to install it was without comparison. Really--I went to an auto parts store and tried to figure out what all I would need to create my own kit and it was exhausting. So great to follow what they have put together here. I took the trailer out after installing this brake controller and it was great. Braking felt like braking normally (with no trailer hooked up). I would recommend this product as well as the other parts and kits suggested by the youtube video. 511079

I ordered the Tekonsha Voyager brake controller and harness for my truck from etrailer, received shipping confirmation within hours and the controller arrived in three days. I googled installation brake controller for my particular truck and etrailer had an excellent video which made it very easy to install. Setting the level and power were also easy as per Tekonsha’s instructions. All in all it was a good experience and the controller will be a good match for my trailer. A good product from a good company at an excellent price. 460310

After a year, the Tekonsha Voyager is working great. It was easy to install in my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500, what took the most time was my deliberating on the best spot to mount it. The unit is very sensitive to your vehicles loading. So changes in stance under load or unloaded may cause you to have to adjust the unit for more efficient trailer braking, which I needed to effortlessly do the other day while towing. I just needed to remember that. A great product and etrailer is a great company. I was at etrailer online browsing my lastest parts list for my camper trailer just today. CA. 362421

I installed this controller on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Installation was easy (as I had also purchased the adapter cable for my Jeep), adjustment instructions were clear and the controller worked perfectly. 79126

Hi...am also looking at installing on my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Am in Australia....not sure what the adjuster cable is and whether it is something I should mention to my Auto Electrician. Are you able to clarify?

The adapter cable referenced is for plugging the brake controller into a port under the dash that Jeep provides on models with the factory towing package, in this case, it is part 3045-P. Please note this port will only be present and active on models equipped with a factory 7-Way trailer connector at the rear. These harnesses are also developed and designed for North American Market vehicles and if your Grand Cherokee was built for sale in Australia, it may not be compatible and could potentially damage the vehicle electrical system. In that case, it may be best to have the installer hard-wire in the brake controller and use an ETBC7 kit to complete the install. It would give the installer all the parts needed to add a 7-Way and wire the Voyager in.

Installation was a breeze with the adaptor wiring for my truck. 20 minutes and the unit was installed. Once the truck was hooked up to our 24 foot trailer, setting the brake controller took another 10 minutes. A quick test drive to fine tune the brakes and we were good to go! 383479

very good service and product. I already had a tow package on my Nissan truck and the connect pigtail sent was a perfect fit. Took me about 1.5 hrs to install it and check it out. Very easy to adjust and the electric brakes are great. The unit and pig tail were less than $100 and that included shipping. Thanks etrailer.com. 287349

  • Yes, we can help you test your brake controller and determine if the controller is bad or if there is a wiring issue that is causing the problem on your 2003 Ford F-250 pickup. Lets start with the easiest things first. Be sure that when you are testing the trailer brakes with the brake pedal that the vehicle is moving. The trailer brakes will not apply with the brake pedal if the vehicle is not moving because of the proportional sensor. The first thing I would check is the red wire that

  • How Much Voltage Should Be Applied To Brakes on Trailer w/ Electric Brake Controller
  • Your brake controller should be getting 12 volts of power going into the brake controller. The wire that feeds power to the brake controller is the Black wire. You can test this wire by using a multimeter, part # part # BTMT15. The amount of power coming out of the brake controller depends on the adjustment of the gain on the controller. To test the voltage at the highest gain setting, you will want to sever the Blue wire a few inches from the back of the controller. Then, you will want

  • Blue Wire Showing Voltage with No Trailer Connected and When Not Applying Brakes on Brake Controller
  • It does sound like there is a short to the brake controller through the wiring or in the internal circuitry of the brake controller. Since your brake controller shows no red light this indicates a short to the brake line (blue wire). If you are using wiring harness, # 3040-P, make sure that extra white ground wire is attached to a clean bare metal surface. If it is hardwired to the truck, the ground needs to be connected to the negative battery terminal. Sever the blue wire a few

  • Troubleshooting LED Indicator Light on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller 39510
  • The green light on the Voyager brake controller # 39510 should come on as soon as you plug the trailer into the vehicle. If it does not come on at all, this indicates that you either have some corrosion inside the trailer or vehicle plugs that is causing a short, or you have a loose power or ground connection. Check the plugs on both sides of the setup for any white or green corrosion. If you see any, clean the plug thoroughly or just replace it. If you don't see any buildup in

  • Indicator Light on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Does Not Come On when Connected to Trailer
  • The white wire on a brake controller is ground and should not show power. If it is then this indicates a short to ground and most likely the controller will need to be replaced.

  • What Do the Level and Gain Setting Do on a Tekonsha 9030 Voyager Brake Controller
  • On the Tekonsha Voyager brake controller, part # 39510, there are seven levels of brake intensity. You will need to decide how much brake you want applied to your trailer in relation to the amount of brake you are applying in your vehicle. For instance, let us say you are hauling a trailer that is heavier than your vehicle. If you are only lightly riding your brakes, you will need a little more power going to the brakes on your trailer to accomplish the same effect. In a case such as

  • Is the Orange CHMSL Wire Used to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2013 Chevy Silverado
  • The orange wire you found is the CHMSL circuit. This is the center high mount stop light wire. It is not used by a brake controller so you can tape it up and stow it out of the way.
