Draw-Tite Activator Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 2 Axles - Time Delayed
part number: 5100

Electronic controller activates electric trailer brakes with a preset intensity when you apply the brakes in your vehicle. Power output and braking aggressiveness are easily adjustable to suit your preference.

Features:

  • Brake controller activates trailer brakes with preset intensity
    • Signal is sent to trailer brakes when tow vehicle's brakes are activated
  • Adjustable output control lets you determine the amount of braking force
    • Set to maximum when you travel through hilly terrain with a fully loaded trailer
    • Back off the power output when you tow a lightweight trailer
  • Sync setting lets you adjust the aggressiveness with which the brakes are activated
    • Get full power output faster by moving switch forward to increase activation speed
    • Achieve smoother braking by moving switch in opposite direction to supply power gradually
  • LED indicator on front of unit shows when trailer's brakes are applied
    • Light glows brighter as power output increases
  • Built-in, slide-bar manual override
  • Quick and easy installation
    • No need to mount level like proportional brake controllers
    • Mounting bracket, wiring harness and hardware included
    • Plug-in, vehicle-specific brake-control adapter can be used for certain applications to reduce installation time
    • Pulse preventer (5501) recommended for installation


Specs:

  • Application: trailers with up to 2 axles (4 brake assemblies)
    • Designed for use with electric brakes only
  • Dimensions: 3" wide x 5-3/8" long x 1" tall
  • Limited 3-year warranty


Time-Delayed Braking

The Activator applies your trailer's brakes when the brake pedal in your tow vehicle is engaged. Every time you apply the brakes in your vehicle, a signal is sent - via the brake switch - to the Activator. The controller then sends power out to your trailer brakes to activate them with an intensity set by you, at a rate determined by you. Both the amount of braking power (output) and rate of application (sync) can be adjusted to suit your preference, the road conditions, type of trailer and size of the load. To determine which levels are best for your application, you must test out your towing setup and choose what feels best.


A time-delay controller is so named because there is a delay between the time that you initially apply the brakes in your tow vehicle and the time that the controller reaches maximum power output. Unlike a proportional brake controller, which activates your trailer's brakes based on the deceleration of your tow vehicle, the Activator sends power out in the same way, with the same gradual delay, no matter the braking situation. Although this delay always exists, it can be adjusted by changing the sync setting.


Sync Settings

To adjust the aggressiveness of your trailer's braking action, use the slide control on the side of the Activator to change the sync setting. If you want to reach maximum power output faster, move the switch forward. To get smoother braking action, move the switch backward, thus supplying power to the trailer brakes more gradually. You can alter the sync setting to suit your driving preferences or to improve handling based on changing road conditions or varied trailer loads.


Quick, Simple Installation

Because inertia plays no role in the functioning of this controller, you do not have to mount the unit at any particular angle. As a result, mounting options are limitless, so long as you can still easily access the controller.


Installation of the Activator requires that you either purchase a custom wiring adapter designed to plug into the controller or that you hardwire the controller directly into your vehicle. To hardwire the Activator, 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, a 20-amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) will be required.

Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Honda
part number: 3070-P

Install your electric brake controller quickly and easily with this custom wiring adapter. Simply plug one end of the adapter into your brake controller and then plug the other end into the built-in harness beneath your vehicle's dash.

Features:

  • Wiring adapter eases installation of your electric brake controller
  • Custom connector end plugs into the built-in port beneath the dash of your vehicle
  • Other end plugs into the back of your electric brake controller
    • Compatible time-delayed brake controllers: Draw-Tite Activator I (5100), Draw-Tite Activator II (5500), Draw-Tite Activator III (5520) and Tekonsha PowerTrac (39523)
    • Compatible proportional brake controllers: Tekonsha Prodigy (90185), Tekonsha P2 (90885), Tekonsha P3 (90195), Tekonsha Primus IQ (TK90160) and Tekonsha Voyager (39510)
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.


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.

Honda Ridgeline

Just what the doctor ordered for the customers Honda Ridgeline. Unbilivably, though the truck was completely wired from under the dash from the factory since it was purchased new with the trailer package, the dealership was oblivious to the fact that a brake controller was needed and were dumbfounded on where to get one, or where the connector was located in order to install it. Found the controler on etrailer.com and the connector location on utube. 228914

Brake controller (5100) seems to be operating as wanted, no complaints, glad I got it. Installation was pretty simple, first time always takes longer because some of us like to double check the connections, and there is always a little hesitation about placement. But any real problems are solved by a simple contact with someone at etrailer anxious to help and put your mind at ease. I have not had any problems with the several etrailer purchases I have made. My Vehicle is a 2014 KIA Sedona and I pull a Casita with it. I bought the receiver hitch, brake controller, air suspension enhancement, and maybe 1 or 2 other things. All good. Great people to deal with. 696717

Although I replaced my Activator II with an Activator; both units ended up being fine.... After replacing the Activator II, after further troubleshooting, I found that I had two independent problems. 1. The brake power wire (blue) was corroded in the truck outlet 7 way receptacle; which I replaced. 2. The actuator brake activation wire (red) was no longer getting power out of the trailer wiring plug unit located under the dash. This was resolved but cutting that wire near the harness plug, and splicing it with the cold side of the brake pedal unit’s brake light wire (white). Your wiring diagrams on the subject proved very helpful in the solution..... 472647

Not only did my packages arrive in a timely manner, but George kept me posted ont their progress every mile of the way. When I got the brake controller, it was everything the said it would be, and along with my final email from etrailer was a link to instructions for installing it and another link to questions and answers about the product and the installation process. How could anyone possibly ask for more. Thank you George, and thank you etrailer. 468070

Its been a year since I received and installed this braking system. Ive used it may times and it works perfectly. Easy to install and easy to use and affordable you cant beat it. I highly recommend, even though I know you can bet much fancier and more expensive items, you probably dont need fancier and more expensive when this fairly inexpensive item does the trick.

2016 Honda Pilot

Just bought a Prodigy 3 and on my first trip with our light weight [email protected] clamshell with electric brakes pulled with a 2016 Honda Pilot...very satisfied. I installed a factory hitch and harness and the cable etrailor provided snapped right in. The trailer is under 2,000 lbs so I opted to bet the boost to zero. So far so good. The only issue is it seems to apply the brakes more firmly when going over rough pavement, otherwise the braking action is very smooth. I didn't want to mount the controller bracket permanently so I bent an angle plate into a U shape and pop riveted it so it would hang in the lower trim panel. 407957

Brake controller installation It took longer that it should have to connect the controller, but I was being very careful, I would check and then double check to make sure everything was alright. I wanted to do a nice clean job so I took my time. The hardest part was making sure I had the right wire connected for the brake signal to the controller, but even that was not difficult to do. I took some pictures of when I started a task and the end result. I will probably move the controller from the ash tray area at a later date, but for now it is fine where it's at since I don't smoke and I don't let anyone else smoke in my truck. 4920

2014 Honda Ridgeline

Just bought the Tekonsha Primus IQ and installed it. Haven't used it yet, as I pick up my first travel trailer next week. Product is solid, packaged with ample, clear instructions, wiring and mounting hardware. Lower dash on my Honda Ridgeline slopes steeply so I fashioned an L-bracket from 14 ga. steel bar and secured to side of center stack (see photo). Nice and level. Wiring to my harness was a bear, just because of where my connector was buried; needed the YouTube videos. Price was much lower from etrailer than any RV dealer around here. Arrived in less than a week. Think I made a smart choice. If it works as advertised it will get a fifth star. 375303

2017 Honda Ridgeline

I gave this a 4 star just because I haven't been able to hook up the trailer yet. The Primus IQ brake controller light is on so I'm assuming it will be fine. The harness arrived in good time. I was able to hook it up in my 2017 Honda Ridgeline in about 20 minutes. The longest part was finding the connection! It was above and left of the parking brake. A headlamp really helped. It's very tight in there so I could use only one hand and did a lot of it by feel. In the picture you need to follow the red wire to the connection. The brake controller I mounted on the plastic in front of my right knee. 321040

I bought this to connect a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller to the 2020 Honda Ridgeline factory trailer wiring harness. It's a perfect fit. I routed the wiring adapter through the space between the lower part of the dash and the upper part of the console. This prevented having to drill a 1" diameter hole in the back of the dash pocket to allow clearance for the adapter connector. 868001

Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake Controller?


  • Replacement for Malfunctioning Draw-Tite Activator II Trailer Brake Controller
  • Based on your description of the problem with your Draw-Tite brake controller I suspect an internal fault within the controller itself. There is a chance that the red input signal wire could be loose, and this would cause the unit to stop generating output, but it would not explain the varying power level displayed. That specific issue makes me think that the internal circuitry has finally given up the ghost and the controller needs to be replaced. If your towed trailer has one or

  • Troubleshooting Surface Rust on Trailer Brake Rotors
  • Theoretically if you just have some surface rust on your rotors it would be knocked off after a drive that included a couple solid braking events. If you still notice rust on the rotors after towing the trailer then this could indeed be an indication that there's an issue with the brakes or simply that the rust you found is a bit deeper than surface level. If the rotors are badly rusted then your best option is just to replace them completely. I have attached a link that will take you

  • Where is Brake Controller Install Connector in 2019 Honda Ridgeline
  • You are not the first person to have trouble finding the brake controller install harness on your 2019 Honda Ridgeline so don't feel bad. It's up by the emergency brake pedal and can be buried a bit. I attached a picture that we got from a customer who was having a hard time finding his with the connector pointed out with pink arrows. The # 3070-P that you referenced is the correct install harness for the Primus IQ part # TK90160 you mentioned as well.

  • Fuse Installation to Activate Brake Controller Power in 2019 Honda Ridgeline
  • Usually, for your vehicle all that is needed is the # 3070-P and the brake controller.The circuit that supplies 12V power to the brake controller is activated by a fuse that's located in the fusebox on the firewall next to the brake fluid reservoir. The fuse location is # 3, and you'd need to install a 20A fuse in that location to activate the controller. I've also seen references stating that the fuse is located in location # 14, so you can look at the fuse box lid, which will list the

  • Troubleshooting Prodigy P2 Brake Controller
  • If you are not getting any power to your Tekonsha P2 # 90885 brake controller it sounds like there is a short somewhere that is impeding functionality of the controller. If you have the factory 7-way on your 2014 Honda Pilot and are using Wiring Adapter # 3070-P there should be 12 volts on the black power wire of this adapter, which you can test with the 7-Function Digital Multimeter # BTMT15.

  • In your 2015 Acura MDX with a factory-installed 7-way wiring setup the best trailer brake controller to use is the Curt Echo # C51180. You will not have to crawl under the dash to find a connector (there isn't one on this vehicle) since the Echo offers wireless operation and simply plugs into the the Acura's existing 7-Way. The controller then gets paired to your smart phone and this is what is used to adjust any settings or activate the manual override. Otherwise the Echo will automatically

  • Brake Controller Wiring Compatible With Valley Odyssey Controller And 2015 Honda Pilot
  • We don't carry any Valley Odyssey Brake Controllers, so we don't have a specific harness that is a direct fit for your 2015 Honda Pilot. I recommend using the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Honda # 3070-P and splicing in your brake controller. If you want to create a harness and don't have the plug for your brake controller, you can use the brake controller side of the Valley Brake Control Adapter 1999-02 and the vehicle end of the # 3070-P to create
