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 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 Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on our 2016 Ford F-150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller. This proportional brake controller works for one up to four axles. The part number is 39510. We'll also be using the Tekonsha pigtail for brake controllers, part number 22292. The Voyager's going to be a proportional brake controller. What this means is that it's going to activate based on, or proportionally to how our vehicle is braking.

If we just generally, just normally step on the brakes and start slowing down the vehicle our brake controller has an accelerometer inside of it. It's going to pick up on that and it's also going to gently apply the brakes on our trailer. If we we're to get more into an emergency stop situation where we really hammer on the brakes, really trying to get stopped quickly, again the Voyager recognizes that and it's going to change the way it does it's job. Now it's going to send the power back there much more quickly in relation to how our braking here with the truck to help us in those emergency stop situations. We've got really flexible mounting options with the Voyager. We've got 90 degrees of mounting positioning.

We have to keep it inline with our direction of travel. We can go to negative 20 degrees all the way up to plus 70 degrees. Really good flexible mounting locations there are going to allow us to get this mounted on our dash where we want it. Unlike a time delayed system where we have to actually wait for the brake controller to activate where it slowly ramps up, we can get maximum braking power out of the Voyager whenever we need it. We have our manual override lever there. It's going to allow us to manually apply the brakes on our trailer as we head down the road, in case we need to.

Up to whatever we've got our gain set at. Now, the gain is going to be the amount of braking force that's sent to the rear of our trailer. You can see turned all the way up it gives us a dark red color. The lower we've got it set the lower or closer to green that color's going to go. You see as I slowly turn it up we go from a green to a yellow to kind of a pink and to that really dark red indicating maximum power.

You change that depending on the weight of your trailer. Also, road conditions and things like that can have some effect. We want to set this up as high as we can without actually locking up the wheels on our trailer. For the level adjustment that we have here on our other side we'll start with it rotated all the way clockwise, so all the way forward. We want to apply the brakes in our vehicle. We'll start moving that counterclockwise until we see that LED start to change. Now if we have a very light yellow color that's going to give us very easy braking activation, so it doesn't activate very rapidly or very forcefully. As the weight of our trailer increases as compared to the weight of our truck we need to adjust that level up slightly. You can see here you've got more of a moderate red for the mid setting. Then we can go to the darker red, to the very aggressive setting. The first thing we need to do is get our shroud out of the way that's going to be underneath this side panel, which we're going to remove. This is going to have a bolt located right up here on the side. You're going to have one on each side. That's what it's going to look like. We'll take the one out here on the drivers side, and do the same thing on our passenger side. Now, on our passenger side we want to reach up right up at the very tip of this shroud, just about there. If we pull out on it you see there's a little clip that we separate that allow this side to come free. We should have another clip there and then we'll get the last one right over there on that corner and pull it out. We'll set that aside. We'll put if back in once we get our brake controller in. We'll come right down here to the bottom and we just want to carefully work this out and separate our clips. We've got our little cubby hole that's right behind that rectangular shaped hole. It should be plugged right into the back of that. You can see it right there. What we're going to do is just allow that to come down. We'll pull it right over here. You can see we can pull it out right here to where it'll be easy to connect to. We'll get our dashboard reassembled here. Cubby hole's going to go back in. The key with getting this put back together is just making sure that our clips line up. Now let's put our shroud back in place. Now we're ready to grab our pigtail, line it up and slide it in. You want to hear that audible click. Then you'll be able to push and pull on it without it coming apart. That way we'll know we have a good connection. Next we need to just set that aside for now. Let's get our bracket mounted. We'll position our bracket where we want it. We have the option of coming up here on the dashboard if we choose to. Really, wherever's convenient as long as we're staying within that range of motion that we talked about. We use the provided screws and get that mounted in position. You always want to check behind, make sure you're not going to screw into anything, any wires or anything like that. All right, perfect. Now we'll just take our pigtail coming off the Voyager there, clip it right into our add on pigtail, and we're ready to use the two holes that are in each side of it. We'll mount it to our bracket. I like to keep them up as high as possible, so I'm going to use the top set of holes on each side there. It'll still give us plenty of room to adjust our level and our gain, but it'll be down there out of the way. Just use our provided screws there. All right, now we'll just plug in our trailer tester and make sure that the light comes on. You can see that we're indicating with the green light, indicating that our trailer is in fact connected. Once we've confirmed our brake controller is working properly we'll go ahead and just wrap our pigtail up here with a zip tie. Nice little metal bracket under our dash here should do a great job of keeping that up and out of the way so we won't have to worry about it hitting our feet. Of course trim off our excess there. With everything working properly that's going to complete today's installation of the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller, part number 39510 on our 2016 Ford F-150.

Completely plug and play installation and works flawlessly, very happy with this unit. I also ordered the exact harness for my 2005 f150 with tow package. Here are a couple of hints that may be helpful. My installation also required a 30 amp cartridge fuse to be installed in the fuse panel in location #105(electric trailer brakes) under the dash on the passenger side. I also installed a relay in location r05 (trailer tow battery charge) but I don't think this is needed for the controller to function. I still had the original trailer brake kit and it had the additional fuse panel instructions and the relay. The owners manual showed where the 30 amp fuse and relay plugs in. You cannot test this unit until a trailer with brakes is connected, ie the led will not light up until it senses a brake circuit. 272082

I have had several of these over the years. I currently have 3 controllers on different trucks. I pull 5 different trailers with completely different weights. The controller works really well. I definately recommend this controller. You level it on the left side, which allows for placement in alot of areas of the truck. When I am towing I can adjust the brakes with the dial on the right side. Obviously the brakes need to be lighter when the trailer is empty. Simply turn the dial back until the brakes don't lock up. When I get it loaded I turn the dial forward until I can feel the brakes take hold. The lever on the front lets me manually apply the trailer brakes. I use this in cases where I am going downhill and it is better to let the trailer slow me down. If I ever need another controller, this will be it. Great price also. 92292

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

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.

I pull a small camper with a VW Touareg. The electronics in the T'reg don't play well with top of the line brake controllers. I spoke with the Tekonsha rep and he recommended the Voyager. The Voyager is a very simple controller, easy to install, and works well. I don't miss the fancy display. ICS 271698

2009 Ford F-150

installed on a 2009 F-150 everything was as advertised. It was plug and play. My truck had the wire plug behind the dash so was easy to hook up. I installed it in the hole below the coin holder. To reach the pre-wired plug you have to remove the panel anyway. I don't like any wires showing or anything I might hit with my leg. So did not mount it on the lower dash. You have to pull the plastic box out to unplug the connector. So just cut off the back of the box off and run the connector through the hole and connect to the controller. This way you can remove the controller anytime you want. Also you can see the readout much easier then mounting it on the lower dash. See pics 333617

The break controller was what I ordered but the wire harness that was sent with it did not have a wiring diagram so I could wire it to my truck correctly. I had to go to a YouTube video to get the correct information so I could wire the harness to my truck without hurting the controller or the vehicle. Question: Does your company not send a diagram with all of your harness? Customer should not have to go to a YouTube video to install the product. 406364


Comments
Hi Walter and Donna, since brake controller wiring harnesses are not universal, manufacturers do not provide wiring diagrams in their packages because they do not know how or if your specific vehicle is prepped for a brake controller. However, we do have a help article on brake controller wiring, and general trailer wiring. I have included links for your reference. If you have any other issues do not hesitate to contact our tech experts.

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

Appears to work so far but too early to tell for a long term assessment. Liked that my vehicle had a ready plug under the dash so no wiring hassles were experienced. 89499


Comments
Thanks Patrick and I like it just fine although have used it only once. Is actuated by the use of the brake pedal and can be utilized manually by moving the lever horizontally to the right. Much of the credit should be given to the gal that took my call with the order. Originally was going the cheap route with no proportioning on the TBC and she indicated that I would be very disappointed if more money wasnt tendered for a proportioning TBC. It always helps when your sales staff has technical knowledge on the products.

This installation is in a 2010 Ford F-150 Lariat The installation was very easy. It helps to have a 90 degree screwdriver to install the screws on the right side. The screws will install easier if you install them first, remove them and re-install after the bracket is installed on the vehicle. 8161

I loved this controller so much I put one in my other vehicle. For the price you can't beat it. Just don't forget you need the wiring harness item 7894 ($$) to go with it. Pros It is really easy to dial in how much brake you need. I dial it down when I get off the highway to prevent the trailer from pulling hard and increase it for higher speeds. Also you can pinch the lever the engage the trailer brakes without braking your vehicle to see just how much braking the trailer (only) is doing. Also there is an led indicator that turns from green to pink to red as more break is applied and serves as a good visual indicator. 333539

2015 Ford F-150

We own a 2015 Ford F150 SuperCrew, 3.5 EcoBoost with Max Tow package. Of course, equipped like this, the truck came with a factory-installed, integral brake controller. That's good news. The bad news is that there various internet forums report there to be an unusually high failure rate of these factory controllers. So, being a bit paranoid about being out in the middle-of-nowhere in our truck and travel trailer and suddenly having (a) locked brakes, or (b) no brakes at all, I decided to install a high quality aftermarket controller. Based on company reputation and prior experience with Tekonsha products, I selected the P3 and proper 'plug and play' wiring harness. Following Tekonsha's instructions as well as vehicle-specific on-line videos, I found the installation to be super easy. I elected NOT to take the truck to the Ford dealer to have the computer re-flashed for the absence of the factory controller. Now, each time the truck is started, I have to click "OK" to clear the 'TRAILER BRAKE FAULT" message... to me that's no big deal. Also, when compared side-by-side, the Ford controller seems flimsy and cheap, whereas the P3 has a quality feel, fit and finish. Wanting the controller to be easy to see and easy to reach, I chose to install the P3 on top of the dash. So, I am delighted with the Tekonsha P3 and - as always - with etrailer's service. 402275

I don't know where to start when reviewing this company. First, the products they sell are top notch, at prices no one can beat. Secondly their online support with videos and detailed installation procedures is "unmatched" by any online company. If they can't walk or talk you through it, it probably can't be done! But perhaps the best quality product they have is their staff. When you call they are most courteous, extremely helpful, and will go above and beyond making your transaction right. I have purchased from etrailer numerous times for these very reasons. And my latest purchase ran into shipping problems (not etrailers fault) and yet Stacey A., Greg & others whose names I forgot (my apologies) made it right. Bottom line, as a frequent online shopper, I can only wish that other online companies would look at etrailers business model and choose to emulate them. This is how online SHOULD be. Thanks again etrailer.com 638170
