This allows us to have braking power sent to our trailer without going through all the major modifications generally associated with a brake controller installation.As long as you have a working seven pole with power to it, the brake controller's going to work out really well.It is proportional, so, if you're in a heavy stop situation or you're slamming on your brakes, it's going to send that same type of power to our trailer. Vice versa if we're in just a traffic situation, we're just slowly coming to a stop, it's going to sense that as well and it sends that kind of power to our trailer, so we're not overworking or under working our trailer. It really makes it much safer than the old time delayed systems that we had.Now, this is going to work for six volt systems, all the way up 24 volt systems and one or two axles, so it's a little of two or four brake assemblies.Now, the installation process for our Echo is very straightforward and simple. You want to take our trailer plug, you're going to plug that right into the Echo and just like on standard seven pole plugs you can see we've got the catch here on the lid to go behind the tab on the plug there so they can't be separated.At that point, we're going to place this right into a working seven pole. See our light Indicates that we do have power to it, we just need to pair it with our phone.Now, to control our brake controller, instead of having to mount something on our dashboard or make modifications up there, we'll just want to go to the Apple or Play store, download the Echo smart control app. more

To help us get this installed, we're also going to be using a universal installation kit for trailer brake controllers.This brake controller's going to provide you with proportional braking for your trailer. What this means is that the internal inertia sensor is going to detect stopping in the vehicle to help apply the brakes appropriately to stop the load as necessary. Located on top of your brake controller, you'll have a boost button, and you can use this to help adjust on the fly for the weight of your trailer. A boost of one setting is for a trailer that weighs less than your vehicle. Boost two is for when it weighs roughly the same as your vehicle, and boost three is when your trailer weighs more than what your vehicle weighs. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2011 Ford Explorer, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Redarc Tow Pro Elite Proportional Trailer Brake Controller, part number 331-EBRH-ACCV2. Now, to help us with our installation, we're also going to be using the Universal Mounting Panel, part number 331-TPSI-001, and also the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers, part number 3035-P.Now, the really big benefit to this brake controller is the fact that we can virtually mount it anywhere. The main part of it is going to be hidden under the dash, so we're not going to have to worry about those big boxes, and we're not going to have a restriction on how it mounts. We can mount it in any direction under the dash, and so long as the cable will reach the knob, we can mount the knob just about anywhere in our vehicle.Here's what our brake controller looks like once we have it installed. This is going to be a lot smaller and more compact than most brake controllers because all we're going to have is this small dial with a light on it rather than having a huge box that we're stuck mounting underneath our dash somewhere where we could potentially hit our knees. Our brake controller is going to be a proportional one. more

Now, the reason you're going to want a brake controller on your Equinox is, if you're planning on towing a trailer that has electric brakes, you're going to need a way to operate them, and this brake controller will allow you to do that.Now, what sets this brake controller apart from other ones on the market is how simple and easy to operate it is. It's a very high quality brake controller but is lacking some of the other features that you may not ever even need to use. So that makes it a very cost-effective solution.Now, when you're comparing this to, say, the Prodigy P2 brake controller, this brake controller doesn't allow you to use electric over hydraulic brakes. The Prodigy P2 does. That's really the only difference between the two.This one will allow you to control up to three axles and trailer brakes. more

This works for 1, up to 4 axles. The part number is 90885.Now, the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 is a really good choice when it comes to brake controllers. It offers proportional braking, which in my opinion, is the safest braking that we have available with brake controllers; versus the time delayed systems, which just have a general ramp into which the power we're going to be applied to the brakes when you hit them. This brakes in relation to the force that you're actually exerting on your pedal. So if you slam on your brakes very quickly, you're going to get your braking force very quickly at a higher amount. more
