Recommended Brake Controller and Trailer Wiring for 2020 Kia Telluride


2020 Kia Telluride - What braking system do you recommend as well as a 7 Way Connector?


Expert Reply:

Let's start off with the trailer wiring for your 2020 Kia Telluride, and to add a 7-way the first thing you will need to begin with a 4-way, and the best, most reliable option for that is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118784, which fits your Kia.

After that, for a brake controller, I strongly recommend Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 because it is the easiest brake controller on the market to use and install while giving you continually smooth braking.

The reason the Echo is so simple is because it is controlled with an app on your smartphone, a device that you're already comfortable using so there is not going to be any unfamiliar hardware or a poorly-written manual to keep poring over simply to use your controller. The Echo will also simply plug into your 7-way, so no bulky unit in your cab, saving you precious space and the hassle of having to drill under your dash to mount it.

For a wireless brake controller like the Echo, the correct installation kit is the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit for Trailer Brake Controller Installation # ETBC7L.

If you do need a hitch for your 2020 Kia Telluride, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13420.

I have also added links to video reviews and installs of the hitch, Wiring Harness # 118784, 7-Way Kit # ETBC7L and Curt Echo # C51180.
