Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2019 Chevrolet Equinox- Video

Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2019 Chevrolet Equinox

Shane: Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to walk you through the installation on the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller on your 2019 Chevrolet Equinox with the Factory Tow Package.Most of the time when we think about a brake controller, it's on a larger vehicle, or on a big truck that may be pulling big trailers. On a smaller SUV like this, maybe you have a boat trailer that has brakes on it, or maybe you have a camper, a small camper that has brakes on it. Maybe you're going on a camping trip and you want to make more room for your passengers inside, so you want to put all your gear into a trailer and that trailer has brakes on it.You've pulled each of these things and without a brake controller you have felt the trailer as you're coming up to a stop pushing on the car. It's an uncomfortable feeling when you're coming up to the back of another car that's already stopped and it doesn't feel like your car is stopping. Adding a brake controller to the vehicle is not only going to make your driving experience much better, but it's going to make your passengers much more comfortable during the ride.The trailer brake controller is going to be a proportional brake controller, so when you apply the brakes in the vehicle it's going to apply the same amount of pressure in the trailer depending on how you have it set, whether that applies the brakes a little bit sooner or a little bit later. more

Rob: Rob here at etrailer.com. Today on our 2019 Chevrolet Sonic, we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster second vehicle kit for the InvisiBrake braking system.If you flat towed before you know that all the components you're going to need. One of those components is going to be a braking system so we're not relying on the motor home to slow down our vehicle as well. That way we have a nice even braking and it's not going to be tearing up the motor home or our car.Our second vehicle kit is going to allow us to use our existing InvisiBrake in a new car. That way we don't have to purchase the entire braking system again. However, the second vehicle kit is going to come with most of the components, but there are a few things we need from our previous InvisiBrake.Now one of the components that you will need from your previous InvisiBrake installation is going to be the operating unit itself.Another component we're going to need to bring from our old kit is going to be the cable and this assembly here that mounts to the bracket. more

B and W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Hi there, Silverado owners. Today in your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, we're going to be installing B&W's Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch. In order to complete the installation we'll be using B&W's Turnoverball Gooseneck Custom Installation Kit for Chevy and GMC.This gooseneck hitch is going to be hidden underneath the bed of your truck. The underbed rail design keeps most of the components under the bed; this way, you can maximize the amount of space in the bed of your truck when you don't want to haul a gooseneck trailer. But when you're ready, you can simply throw your ball in, and you're ready to go.To ensure you don't lose your ball when not in use, it stores flush by simply flipping it over and dropping it back down. And now it's almost as if you don't have a gooseneck trailer installed. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Express Van

Speaker 1: Today in this 2010 Chevrolet Express Van we will be having a look at, and showing you how to install the Tekonsha Primus IQ trailer brake controller part number TK90160.To ease your install we'll be using universal seven way trailer brake controller kit, part number ETBC7.Here's what our brake controller looks like installed. Now what's great about this brake controller, is that this is a proportional brake controller, which allows us to slow down smoothly, and safely when we're towing a trailer, and our brakes are being applied instantly versus with a timed delay brake controller, it's also not gonna give you a jerky ride like a time delayed brake controller would.Now the reason you're gonna want a brake controller such as this one is if you're towing a trailer that has electric brakes, you won't be able to control them without having a brake controller.Now what sets this brake controller apart from other proportional units on the market is not only is this a very high quality unit, but it's also a very simple one to use without a lot of overly complex features. This gives you the basic functions that you need in order to safely, and easily utilize trailer brakes.To our right we have our manual override, and what this does, this will apply our trailer brakes to the maximum level that we have set the further we press it in.The reason you want a manual override is because if your trailer starts to sway behind you, or starts to jackknife, you would want to slow the trailer down, not your vehicle, that'll make things worse. So by applying this, only the brakes on the trailer will be applied without you applying your vehicle's brakes.Over here to the left this is our gain adjustment knob. This knob here controls how much power is being sent to your trailer brakes. Right now if it's set all the way up you see our display reads at 11, and we start to roll it back it'll start to drop back down all the way down to zero, which means no trailer brakes being applied.General rule of thumb, you want to start it somewhere in the middle, so about five and a half will be ideal. more

Speaker 1: Today on this 2000 Chevrolet Express van, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster rear anti-sway bar and axle bracket kit, part number RM-1109-175-00, in conjunction with the Roadmaster axle mounting bracket kit for Chevrolet Express van chasses, part number RM-590061-00.Here's what our sway bar looks like installed. There are many reasons you're going to want an aftermarket sway bar on your motor home. One is if your vehicle doesn't already have a sway bar on the back of it, such as this one, this is going to greatly reduce the amount of side-to-side sway in the back. So when we're driving down the road, by having our sway bar in place, if a semi we're to pass us, we won't be steering trying to keep our vehicle to go straight. This will allow us to keep the steering wheel more centered as we're driving in a straight line. Also, when we're going around the corners, we won't be having to counter-steer quite as much when we're leaving the corners because we're not having the body roll that we're used to having without having the sway bar in place.So for example, if we're turning left, we'll have more weight transfer to our right side and that'll cause the right end to dip down and the left side to pick up. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be showing you how to install the Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number is RM-156-25.Now this charge line kit is really important on these GM vehicles with the steering wheel lock situation, you have to leave your key on. Even though you turn off the fan, you turn off the air, you turn off the radio, it still drains the battery. This allows us to take power from our red wire that we've got connected to the 12 volt power source on the back of our RV, that goes through a breaker and we've got it connected right here to our positive battery cable.This gives us a trickle charge effect. As we're driving down the road, the battery's constantly getting a little bit of a charge and a little bit of a charge to keep it up and maintained. The breaker is in place to help prevent any kind of overloading. If you're vehicle, maybe you've left the radio on or you've left the fan blowing, it's going to be drawing power from your battery of course.That excess draw will cause this breaker to heat up slightly and disconnect power temporarily until that system cools back down and it'll make contact again, so it's a very safe and very effective way to charge your battery while you're flat towing.The first step in the installation is going to be to get our breaker mounted. more

Part RM-156-25.This charge line kit will provide a trickle charge from your RV to your vehicle's battery. This way when you're flat towing your vehicle down the road, every time you stop and you use the battery from your vehicle to apply to brake pedal from your braking system, or if you're using your vehicle's taillights as your taillight system, you can keep your battery charged so it's ready to go when you get to your campsite or wherever your destination may be.This kit connected directly to your six pull 00:00:36 connector at the front of your vehicle, and has a circuit breaker in line to protect for any shorts. When you plug it into your RV, that's where it gets its charging from.We'll begin our installation by mounting our circuit breaker using the self-tapping screw provided in the kit. Use an eight millimeter socket, and we're going to put it right here in the front, in this little open spot. We'll then take our second self-tapping screw and thread it on the other side.We'll start by connecting our wire to our circuit breaker. more

Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 Chevrolet Malibu, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for towed vehicles, part number RM-156-25.Here's what our charge line kit looks like installed. This solves the problem that people encounter when they are flat-tailing their vehicle behind their motor home. The reason you need this is because when your vehicle has a supplemental braking system, its drawing its power from the vehicle's battery and not from the motor home. This will maintain the charge on your battery, so your supplemental braking system won't drain your battery and whenever you get to your destination, you will be able to start your vehicle up without any problems.Many of our customers have found this to be a great solution because several of them have found their battery's be dead and not able to start their vehicle after they've been towing for an extended period of time. This solved that issue for them and will solve the issue for you as well, so you don't have to worry about it.For this particular flat tow setup, we're using a Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit with removable arms, a Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with bulbs, a Roadmaster Seven to Six Wire Straight Cord, a Roadmaster Fusemaster Fuse Bypass, a Roadmaster Charge Line Kit, Roadmaster Coil Safety Cables, a Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Nonbinding Tow Bar and a Roadmaster 12 Volt Outlet Kit. In this instance, we are not installing a braking system that is available to us, my customer's supplying his own, but we do have several braking system options available too.In this particular case, I would recommend the Roadmaster Even Brake Braking System. more

Part number is RM-766.Now the need for an auto battery disconnect on the Silverado comes from the tendency for the battery to drain while we're flat towing the truck.

So we no longer are going to have to worry about trying to remove the battery cable or having one of those big switches underneath the hood that we constantly have to remember to switch back and forth.When we're ready to tow, we'll hit tow. When we're done flat towing and we're ready to start driving our vehicle, simply switch it into drive.Now to mount our battery disconnect, we want to keep it down somewhere kind of out of the way so we're not going to be bumping into it as we're working on our truck or something like that.We we're going to be going right underneath the coolant overflow tank here. We'll start by pulling these two hoses off. more

Now with the vehicle hooked up to the motor home, even with our ring terminal disconnected from the jump start terminal there, if we test it for power you can see we've got power coming through there even when it's not. more
