Is There a Way To Turn the Light Off On the Curt Spectrum While Not Towing  


I have this ordered and I see 1 complaint about light coming on when brake pedal depressed and it being kind of bright at night without a trailer. Could this be connected with a switch on the power so it could be shut off when not being used with trailer? Doing that to avoid bright annoyiny lights at night.


Expert Reply:

The Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller part # C51170 will illuminate even without a trailer connected that is correct. If you don't wish to see this light each time you hitch the brakes without a trailer attached then you will either need to mount the control knob in a location that is still within reach but not in direct eyesight or you can unplug the harness that connects the control knob to the control box. I cannot recommend you splice into any of the wires to make your own sort of cutoff switch.
