Brake Controller Installation on Side of Center Console


I am wondering if either brake controller, part # 90195 or # 90160, can be mounted with the display pointing straight up, like on the side of the vehicle center console. Thank you


Helpful Expert Reply:

The brake controllers # 90195 and # TK90160 cannot be mounted to the side of a center console due to the internal sensor that detects deceleration.

For your desired mounting position, I recommend the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, the Hopkins InSIGHT Flex-Mount Trailer Brake Controller # HM47297, or the Curt Spectrum # C51170. Each of these options will use a box that has that sensor you can mount under your dash out of sight and give you the controls right where you desire them.

Your other option for that mounting would require using a time delayed controller like the Draw-Tite Activator IV Trailer Brake Controller # 5504
