Trailer-Mounted Brake Controller

Autowbrake trailer-mounted brake controller

The Autowbrake mounts completely on your trailer and wirelessly connects to a small handheld remote in your cab, giving you all the convenience of a Bluetooth brake controller without tethering you to an app that will drain your phone battery or restrict how you can use your phone. There's nothing in the cab to get in your way, so you won't be banging your knee on the controller as you get in and out of your vehicle. You don't have to mess with your vehicle's wiring or find a place to mount the controller where it won't interfere with your lower airbags. The Autowbrake removes all of that hassle. It's convenient, out of the way, and works with all tow vehicles, whether they have older standard wiring configurations or newer PWM or multiplex systems.


The fact that the Autowbrake installs on your trailer - and not in your vehicle - also means that you can switch back and forth between different tow vehicles with no additional setup. So you can lend your trailer to a friend or co-worker who doesn't own a brake controller and all they have to do is plug the trailer into their tow vehicle and the Autowbrake will be ready to go. If you lend the trailer to someone who does already have a brake controller in their truck, the Autowbrake will automatically go into sleep mode once everything is plugged in to keep from interfering with that existing controller.


Autowbrake review

Autowbrake Operation

With the main unit mounted on the trailer, the remote key fob puts control of your trailer's brakes right in your hand. In addition to offering fast and easy power adjustment and a manual override, it keeps your cab clutter-free and your towing experience simple.


Autowbrake module and remote key fob

When you have your trailer connected and you're ready to tow, the first thing to do is select a weight setting. This will ensure that the brake controller has the right amount of power output to handle the weight of your trailer.


Autowbrake weight setting

You have 3 levels to choose from. With the brake pedal depressed, you'll use the button marked A to decrease the setting and the button marked B to increase the setting. On the top of the module is a red LED light that will blink to signal which setting it's on.


  • Setting 1: for trailers up to 3,500 lbs (1 blink)
  • Setting 2: for trailers 3,500 lbs - 6,900 lbs (2 blinks)
  • Setting 3: for trailers 6,900 lbs - 12,000 lbs (3 blinks)

The Autowbrake will automatically remember the weight setting and you won't need to set it again unless the weight of your trailer changes. You can always check which setting the brake controller is on by pressing the B button.


Adjust Autowbrake power levels and manual override with key fob

Once you have the correct weight setting for your trailer load, you'll want to select the braking output for your trailer using the key fob. This will set the amount of power the brake controller sends to your trailer to bring it to a stop; how much you'll need will depend on the weight of your trailer. Whether you're at a complete stop or cruising, you can change the level while lightly applying the brakes, and the brake controller will adjust accordingly. You'll want to set the braking output as high as you can without locking up the brakes. There is no need to adjust the settings unless you are going from an empty trailer to a fully loaded trailer or vice versa.


The key fob also puts the manual override right in your hand, great for stopping sway or controlling your trailer's momentum in emergencies. To engage the manual override, press all three buttons. This will activate the trailer's brakes and brake lights without you having to apply the brakes on your tow vehicle, perfect for limiting trailer movement while you're cruising.


Thanks to the Autowbrake's Smart Start feature, there's no need to readjust the settings every time you tow. The unit will always remember the last towing setting, even after it's been disconnected. This means that you can store your trailer away for the winter, and when you're ready to use it again, all you have to do is connect your trailer to your tow vehicle. The Autowbrake unit will automatically boot back up to the last setting.


Simple Installation

The Autowbrake unit can be mounted at any angle and in any direction using the 4 included self-tapping screws. It's best to mount the Autowbrake close to your trailer junction box, which is typically located on the trailer frame. However, it can be mounted in the location that works best for you - inside a trailer compartment, under or along the side of the frame, or inside a storage cabinet or toolbox.


Using the junction box to connect the Autowbrake wiring harness is recommended. If the junction box is not accessible or if your trailer does not have one, you can pick up our Autowbrake installation kit (3430001-JBK - sold separately) to get everything you need for an easy installation, including a junction box, butt connectors, and ring terminals.


Making the wiring connections is easy. The Autowbrake harness contains 5 color-coded wires:


Autowbrake wires

Blue - trailer brakes

Black - power wire

White - ground wire

Green/Yellow - brake/turn signal lights


Autowbrake wires into junction box

Connect each of the wires in the Autobrake's harness to the appropriate stud in your junction box. Before beginning, be sure to confirm the wiring configuration of your trailer. Color-coding does not guarantee that the circuit you are connecting to is for the same function. A circuit tester is recommended.


Autowbrake wiring diagram

Connect the black wire to the 12-volt auxiliary power stud or wire. Connect the blue wire to the trailer brake output. Connect the white wire to the ground stud or to a suitable grounding point on your trailer's frame. Connect the green wire to the right stop/turn connection and the yellow wire to the left stop/turn.


Autowbrake unit buttons

Once the Autowbrake is mounted and installed, plug your trailer into your vehicle and begin the calibration process. Fortunately, calibration is only required the first time you install the brake controller or if you reposition or move it to another trailer. Calibration should be done while you're parked on a level surface so the Autowbrake can determine what the normal towing position will be. You will also need to recruit a friend to help you out with this process.


To calibrate, turn on your vehicle ignition and press the brake pedal down. While the brake pedal is depressed, have your friend press both buttons on the Autowbrake unit simultaneously until the LED light starts blinking. When it stops blinking, the Autowbrake is calibrated and you can release the vehicle's brake pedal.


Now you're ready to hit the road with your trailer!

Installation Accessories

See etrailer.com's exclusive 7-way upgrade kit for brake controller installation (ETBC7L - sold separately) if you don't already have a 7-way plug at the back of your vehicle.


Proportional Braking

What is proportional Braking

The Autowbrake brake controller comes equipped with proportional braking to give you the best towing experience. Proportional braking means that your trailer brakes mimic your tow vehicle's brakes. Using a series of accelerometers, gyrometers, and a sophisticated computer program, this brake controller will sense how your tow vehicle brakes. It will then 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, saving wear and tear on the tires and brakes of your trailer. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.

Works as advertised! I appreciate the freedom to switch between vehicles that may or may not have brake controllers installed, the fob is very convenient for testing and confirming braking strength for your load. Installation was straightforward on my Timpte 718 trailer. Be sure to check your trailer wiring - not all wiring harnesses or companies follow the standard color scheme and some trailers have onboard power handled in different ways.



by:

I have not had the best of experience so far. Installed on an aluminum car trailer, even on setting 1 the trailer will go full lock during light braking all the time. Almost like the boost is too high if it had that option. Had a random full brake lock happen while going up a hill in my neighborhood and once over a speed bump with no brakes applied. Also holds the trailer brakes just a bit too long after releasing the brakes in traffic. Need to reach out to the manufacturer and see if there is anything I can do.

I got in touch with the manufacturer about this, and they are wanting to get in touch with you directly about this. They will be reaching out.

I’ve had the auto break for about a year so far it’s an excellent product I have a 2019 Ford ranger and i pull a Forest river Geo pro trailer there’s not much room in the Ranger for a break controller and I did not want to drill holes in my new truck the auto break fits perfect on my Geo pro I almost forget it’s there it works great.I set it up once and never thought about it again and I’ve been on many trips.Highly recommend it if you’re limited on space.

Works as good as the day I put it on no problems would highly recommend. Haven’t had any issues and I’ve been on many trips. Would buy again.

A very convenient brake controller with proportional braking and wireless control. After 1 year and nearly 2k miles, the ATB's performance on the road was flawless. It is straightforward to install as well.

Two minor issues:

1) I would have liked a fob with more features (ability to enable/disable the controller (see #2) and to check the braking level from the tow vehicle.

2) an on/off switch on the box. The quiescent current draw is not negligible, this drained the trailer battery once when it sat idle for too long. A workaround is to remove the fuse when it's not in use, but that's definitely a problem if one forgets to replace it before a trip and is reminded of this only when on the road and suddenly in need of the ATB. So I understand why it's not an option.

Subaru Forester

I think it was easy to program and I am glad to have electronic trailer brakes while pulling a 1650 pound teardrop trailer with my subaru forester that has a 1500 pound tow capacity. The drive from Oregon to Michigan had no issues. The people with autobrake are very helpful in assisting if you should have any questions. I like that the brake system does not require a module inside the vehicle. Instead it is attached to my trailer and in the event this trailer has to be pulled by another vehicle with a seven pin connection the switch over should be seamless



by:

Was easy to install had to buy another 7 pin cable on my trailer since some got used up in the recommend junction box for the install. Trailer inspection place never saw anything like that before, but was able to prove that it works. I do recommend instead on a brake controller under your dash.

2015 Toyota Highlander

It's an bit confusing setting it up. But once I called them and got an install tech he walked me through it. This was even on Saturday morning. He's was patient, courteous, and patient. Even called back to check on it. Once setup it works perfectly and I don't have to install a controller on the dash. Only reason I gave it four stars is because of the confusing setup. Otherwise, excellent!!

2013 Toyota RAV4

We tow our 1500 lb. Aliner Ranger with a 2013 Toyota RAV4. This vehicle does not come with any tow package provision from Toyota. The Autowbrake made using the electric brakes dirt simple. Install a 7 way plug, run power to the black power wire on the 7 way, wire the Autowbrake into the trailer wiring, calibrate, and go.

Why the Autowbrake instead of the Curt or Tekonsha wireless controllers? Operating it is as simple as plugging in the trailer. Let the black box work its magic. No apps to crash, phones running out of battery, no fighting over 12v accessory ports, and no pieces to leave in a different vehicle.

***Do not run power to the blue brake wire on the 7 way, or the Autowbrake will not function. I discovered this the hard way. My photo showing that blue wire from the vehicle hooked up is what NOT to do! The brake post should be only the Autowbrake blue wire and the blue wire going to the trailer brakes.

Instead, wire the blue wire on the Autowbrake to the blue brake wire (or whatever color wire powers your trailer's brakes) on the trailer. I used a junction box to accomplish this. You will also need lots of 10 gauge and 14 gauge ring terminals and a good crimper to install. There is an install kit I purchased that had almost all the terminals I needed.

Calibration is simple. The instructions were spot on for this. Then, drive around to fine tune the braking force for your specific vehicle and trailer. This is easy to do with the remote.

The Autowbrake fades into the background when driving. The camper stopped without drama, even during some hard stops. One quirk is the Autowbrake takes half a second to release the brakes from a dead stop. This came in handy going uphill, when I had enough time to get my foot from the brake to the accelerator. The brakes also work in reverse, which I understand is not always the case.

In summary: expensive, and worth it. It's seamless once installed. It controls the brakes wonderfully. And, it only needs a power supply from the tow vehicle to operate.

The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller works great. After setup you can fell the braking from the trailer every time you stop.

After a year I don't know what I think of this product. I installed the Autowbrake in a 20ft enclosed trailer that I pull behind a 32ft Class A diesel pusher that has enough power that in the drivers seat I can't tell if all the brakes on the trailer are locked up or engaging when they are supposed to. To confuse the issue the trailer brake wiring was a broken mess that had to be fixed before the AutowBrake could be installed. I have only done one long distance drive pulling the trailer since installation. I need to try using the trailer with a regular truck. I will say that the website and the installation instructions could use a lot more information on error codes and what to look for when things go wrong. I am basing the rating on the fact that I can't tell if it is working if standing still and have no way to know if it is working when moving so it is really a review of my inability to test it.

Received three days after ordering. Operates flawlessly, easily installed on dump trailer.

fast delivery, and I really like having the brake controller on the trailer rather than in the TV. Works great!



by:

This electric brake controller has performed flawless over this past year. Was simple to install and setup too.



by:

I've had this for about a year and it seems to be a good product. it definitely works, however the fine tune adjustments done with the fob don't seem to really do anything which is the reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I mounted it on a trailer that we use to tow a Miata or a side by side that total about 3500-4000 GTW with a 2020 Blazer. The Blazer has a tow package but doesn't have a brake controller. I didn't want to mount an aftermarket controller in the Blazer, so this is a perfect solution.

Still quite happy with the controller. I now also pull this trailer behind my 5th wheel camper, and the autobrake is awesome for this too.

Audi Q7

Hi,
I purchased this controller to go
with a retrofit brake install on my single axle cargo trailer. I tow with an Audi Q7 and the dealer cost of installing a standard trailer brake controller was very expensive and would have required a service visit. I ordered the unit online and had had it installed by my local trailer dealer at the same time as they installed a new axle and brake assembly. The thing works perfectly. I also like the manual controller which I can actuate manually in the car while driving (stop and start) about town to reduce wear on my Audi Brakes. I am happy with the functionality, the ease of operation and the price of this product.

Still working fine . I use it a lot.



by:

We initially had trouble with the brake controller and got outstanding service. The company re-programmed it to better suit the weight of our trailer (very light for one with a brake controller). They were great! Courteous and efficient. Since we got it back we have had no problems. This is a much better solution for us than drilling through the plastic inside the vehicle and having an ugly controller inside. It brakes smoothly and is easy to adjust (although we haven't had to since the reprogramming). Would definitely buy again and recommend.

Great! Had to perform a VERY fast stop to avoid being the fourth car in what turned out to be a three car car accident. No trailer sway, perfect control, which was important, because I had to steer through flying debris. Would definitely recommend!

@Chad Great to hear! That's definitely the big benefit.

It has worked very well and does everything it’s supposed to do.



by:

A little thinking was required to install on my travel trailer, which is designed with a single 12V bus connected to the house battery, tow vehicle battery, and break-away braking system. If I had powered the Autobrake directly from that bus, then it would have remained powered (by the house battery) when the trailer is disconnected from the tow vehicle. So, I split this common 12V bus into two parts---with the Autobrake powered by the tow vehicle and the break-away braking system powered by the house battery. If there was some better way to install on my trailer, I did not see it on the instructions or website.

I would prefer a design where the Autobrake remote control has two-way communication with the Autobrake, displays status information, and has a hard-wire power source (e.g. to a USB port in the tow vehicle), even if the cost was higher. With the current design (button battery inside the remote, one-way communication) I am always worried that the remote will fail in sway crisis, when I will want to apply the trailer brakes manually.

Still, this is a good product and I'm very glad to not have a traditional brake controller mounted in the tow vehicle.

Porsche Cayenne

This product makes super sense. Put the controller on the trailer, it does not affect any of the cars computers or electronics... Anyone can borrow your trailer and they are safe!
The install was super easy. (I have a Porsche Cayenne which required the dealer to activate the power to the plug...gave us some fun during install, not autobrakes issue).
Once installed the calibration is the key...get the trailer on a flat surface...It makes a difference. Once you are calibrated it works great. The key fob tweaks the settings nicely.. My fob was not labeled but I understand the new ones are... So you adjust in the correct direction.
I did call support a few times as the Porsche gave us a bit of a headache with its power source. Support was great. They took me into super detail so I could test the wiring to make certain everything was correct and working properly..
Going forward, this is the only controller I will us on my trailers.

If I had one wish, some feature that talks back to the key fob so you know its working and what setting you are currently on. It works so well, your trailer never tugs or hits the toe vehicle....

I bought the Autowbrake controller last year (July 2019) when I bought my used teardrop camper. I chose the Autobrake because I knew I would be purchasing a new tow vehicle in a year or so. In June 2020, I replaced the 2009 Subaru Forester with a 2020 Subaru Outback. After getting the Outback set up with a 7-pin connector, it was so easy to hook up the teardrop & recalibrate the Autowbrake with the Outback. I've only had to use the fob once & it worked well.

  • Installation Kit For Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller
    The Autowbrake # 3430001 installs on the trailer side so you would generally just utilize the 7 way plug already on the trailer. We do recommend using a junction box to connect the Autowbrake wiring harness. We actually make an installation kit specifically for this purpose with part # 3430001-JBK. This will include everything you need for installation.

  • Can the Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller Be Used on a 5th Wheel Trailer
    Yes, it is possible to use the Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001 on your 5th wheel trailer being towed by your 2013 Ram 3500. The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001 wires to the junction box on your trailer and will work for your 5th wheel as long as it does not have more than 3 axles. If your 5th wheel does not have a junction box, you can use the Junction Box and Installation Kit for Autowbrake Trailer-Mounted Electric Brake Controller # 3430001-JBK.

  • Does The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001 Work With In Cab Brake Controller?
    The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001 will go into sleep mode if it senses a vehicle mounted trailer brake controller is being used. The question you saw does leave some opening for some confusion. In that example the person disconnected the blue wire which carries power from the vehicle mounted brake controller so that it would not put the Autowbrake into sleep mode. Since they eliminated the blue wire from going to the brakes the Autowbrake would never see any power on this wire.

    The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001 was designed to be mounted to the frames of vehicles that are exposed to all kinds of weather from rain and snow. It was also designed to last a long time without issue. It's very new so we don't have specific examples of this lasting for "X" amount of years but it comes with a 3 year warranty and would easily last much longer than that. As long as the tow vehicle has an active 12 volt power source for it to draw power from this can work...

    I do have an option for you but there are currently no aftermarket trailer brake controller options for a 2022 Ford F-150 that plug into the vehicle due to the missing plug. That said, you can have the factory integrated trailer brake controller added by the dealer or you can use the Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller part # 3430001 which installs entirely on the trailer and does not require any reprogramming on the truck.

  • Can I use Autowbrake With Integrated Factory Brake Controller
    The answer that you read on a previous question means the Autowbrake part # 3430001 will override the vehicle's integrated brake controller because the blue wire from the trailer connector (that activates the electric brakes) is now wired to the Autowbrake. There is not a need to cut or disconnect the wiring for your factory brake controller. The Autowbrake works for up to 3 axles on the trailer. I have attached an wiring diagram for your reference.

  • Recommended Trailer Brake Controller for a 2022 Ford F-150
    I do have an option for you but in an attempt to encourage dealer installation only, there is no trailer brake controller port under the dash anymore on a 2022 Ford F-150.

    The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller part # 3430001 is a proportional controller which means it applies the brakes in an amount, proportional to the force of how the brakes are applied in the vehicle. It uses an inertia sensor inside the controller that senses deceleration. The brake light circuit simply wakes the controller up and tells it to start reading the inertia and apply the brakes accordingly.

  • Compatibility of 3430001 Autowbrake Brake Controller with 2012 Volvo C70
    As long as the 7-way was installed correctly with a circuit breaker protected connection to the tow vehicle battery, the # 3430001 Autowbrake Brake Controller you mentioned will work just fine. A single axle trailer will only draw about 6 amps at full braking power, so there will be no problems at all as the power circuit through the 7-way is usually protected by a 30 amp breaker or fuse at a minimum.
