How to Use a Dexter Brake Actuator on a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with Factory Controller


So I have a horse trailer with electric over hydraulic brakes I have the Dexter actuator my 2006 f350 I bought the p3 controller good times works great my mother n law bought a new 2018 Chevy 3500 and needs to pull out trailer it does not jive is there an adaptor or setting or does it need the p3 controller ?? I saw Titan has an adaptor or converter does Dexter ?


Expert Reply:

Dexter does not offer an adapter for their electric over hydraulic braking systems, but we have heard of people using the HydraStar Adapter, # HBA-CAM, without issue. This has not been officially tested by the manufacturers, so they cannot guarantee the compatibility. The only way we can guarantee that the Dexter actuator will work with the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is to bypass the factory controller and install an aftermarket controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic brake systems like the Prodigy P3, part # 90195 that you have on your F-350.
