Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F-150, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Tekonsha Primus IQ. This proportional brake controller works great for one up to three axles. It's part number is TK90160. Now to complete this installation we're also going to be using the Tekonsha Brake Controller Plug-In Adapter, part number 22292. If your vehicle's equipped with just the factory 4-pole, you're also going to need to pick up part number ETBC7. Now the Primus IQ is going to be an excellent solution for providing braking power to your trailer. This proportional brake controller is designed to sense the deceleration of our vehicle and give us the same amount of braking force or proportionate to the way the vehicle's stopping to our trailer. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2015 Volkswagen Touareg

Today on our 2016 Volkswagen Touareg we will be having a look at and installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 trailer brake and controller part number 90885. What sets this brake controller a part from other controllers in the market is you have this nice easy display here but yet we still have features that other cheaper models don't have without spending a lot of money in order to get the ability to run electric over hydraulic brakes. It's a great benefit that a lot of brake controllers can't do. The thing I really like about this controller is the fact that it is proportional. We don't have to worry about messing with the controller when we're driving. If we just need a little bit of braking assistance, it'll give us a little bit of braking assistance. more

It doesn't take up a whole lot of room underneath your dash. Now this brake controller uses inertia and what that's going to mean is how hard you push on the brake pedal is how hard it's going to mirror pushing on the trailer brakes. What's nice about this controller is once you have it set up for your specific trailer, you're not going to have to worry about it anymore unless you change your weight. It has a nice digital display. more

Best Brake Controller Options- Video

Best Brake Controller Options

Today we're going to be taking a look at the different types of brake controllers available and help you to determine which one might best suit your needs. Now, brake controllers are important because this is what sends power beck to the brakes on our trailer, and helps us to stop safely and also stay in compliance with state laws. So, without a brake controller, even a controller with brakes is gonna have no power. The first decision we're going to make in our brake controller selection is gonna be whether we want to go with something that's time delayed, like the Curt Venturer here, or something that is proportional, which would be like our Prodigy P3, or Prodigy RF, or our Hopkins Insight. Now, the main difference between our time delayed type controller and our proportional type controller is how they activate the brakes on our trailer. A time delayed system is gonna have a certain amount of time in which this brake controller is gonna go from zero power output up to whatever your maximum power output is. That's the way it is every time you brake. Now, with our proportional system, these have internal sensors. These can sense the negative acceleration or the deceleration of our vehicle and apply the appropriate braking output out to our trailer. This is gonna give us a more fine-tuned braking experience, so if we're slowly coming up to a stop we'll have light braking power. more

To ease our installation we'll be using the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers, part number 3070-P. Now the reason you want a brake controller is if you have a trailer that has electric trailer brakes and your vehicle doesn't have a brake controller, you won't be able to use those trailer brakes. When you have a brake controller installed you'll be able to take advantage of those trailer brakes and be able to slow down your trailer a lot more efficiently and putting less strain on your vehicle's brakes. Also, in some areas of the country, they do require functioning trailer brakes on trailers over a certain load, so that's just something to keep in mind. All right here's what our brake controller looks like installed. more

We're also going to be using part number HM53075, which is the Hopkins pigtail adapter. Now, the InSIGHT is a proportional brake controller, which essentially means that inside of the unit there's going to be a sensor. That sensor detects when you step on your brake, so if you just step on them lightly, we're going to have a light amount of pressure just helping us to slow down. In an emergency situation when we really have to step on our brakes, it's going to sense that and send power back to accordingly. Now, the benefit of a proportional braking system is that unlike time-delayed systems we don't have to wait for our braking power to go to our trailer. more

The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 is a truly proportional brake controller, which allow us to control from one to four axles of electric trailer brakes. By being truly proportional it'll apply the brakes on your trailer in direct proportion to the amount that your towing vehicle's slowing down. If you're going down a hill you don't have to worry about false triggers being activated because the brake controller is not activated at all until you apply the brakes in your vehicle. When you apply the brakes it shows how much power is going to your trailer brakes. Now, as you hold the brakes for awhile it dials down the power so you don't have to worry about your magnetics on your trailer brakes becoming overheated and shorting out. more

Here on the side we've got this turn dial to adjust your gain level for the amount of power being sent back to the brakes on your trailer. Here on the top we've got this blue button and that's going to let you go through to your three boost levels so that you can adjust the amount of boost that's going to go back to the trailer brakes. This brake controller is nice and easy to use and it's going to do a great job of providing proportional braking power to the brakes on your trailer and it does that by the inertia sensor that it has inside. You're able to mount it from zero degrees all the way up to 90 degrees in the vertical plane. What I like most about this brake controller is how easy it is to use and operate because it's as simple as setting it and if you want to set a boost level, you can do that. more

A lot of our customers like that you can change the screen color, to select whatever you would like. Overall, this brake controller is just going to do a really good job of making sure that, whatever trailer you've got behind you, that you're going to have the braking power that you need. Right now, when we've got this read out right here, that lets us know that it's connected to a trailer, because there's a little image of a truck with a small trailer behind it. Then over here, the up and down buttons will allow us to adjust our gain. more

Today on our 2008 Toyota Tundra, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Tekonsha Primus IQ. This proportional trailer brake controller works great for one of the three axles. Its part number is TK90160. We're also going to be using the Tekonsha Plug-in Wiring Adapter, part number 3040-P. The Primus IQ is a proportional braking system. What that means is it uses a sensor located inside to detect the braking force that's coming from our truck. In an emergency stop situation where we really get on the brakes hard, it feels that and it's going to send immediate heavy braking power to the rear up to whatever we've set with our gain. more

Today on our 2008 Honda Odyssey, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Tekonsha Voyage trailer brake controller, part number 39510, in conjunction with part number ETBC7, which is the universal installation kit for trailer brake controllers. This is what it looks like once it's installed in the vehicle. This Voyager brake controller is a proportional controller, which means it activates immediately, unlike with time-delayed brake controllers, and the harder you push the pedal in the vehicle, the more it will apply the brakes on the trailer. If you're looking for a simple, easy-to-use brake controller, this is definitely going to be a good option. The ease of use is also something that makes this one different from some of the other ones that are out there. Unlike some of the other brake controllers out there, there aren't a whole lot of different buttons in order to change settings. You've just got a couple dials on the side. In order to use this brake controller, the first thing I want to point out is, right up here we've got this little green LED light. more
