Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter- Video

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Today on our 2013 Mercedes Benz Sprinter, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller, part number 90885, in conjunction with the etrailer Brake Controller Install Kit part number, ETBC7, our tow rating mounting bracket, part number 18136, and the Edelmann dielectric grease, part number 11755. To begin our install, we'll first take the seven-pole bracket and mount it onto the seven-pole connector. Using the hardware provided with our install kit, we'll go ahead and line the bracket up with the pre-drilled holes in the connector, then install our bolt and nut to secure the bracket to the connector. We'll go ahead and lower the spare tire. Remove the T-nuts at the ends of the studs and then go ahead and loosen the nuts that secure the spare tire in position. Once we can loosen the nuts enough, we'll rotate the hook out of the way and then lower the cradle. Next we'll need to install the seven-pole bracket onto the vehicle. Now, for this application, we'll be using the tow-ready universal mounting bracket part number 18136. Because of the aftermarket body on this vehicle, we cannot install it in a normal fashion. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class

Today on this 2009 Mercedes Benz GL Class, we're going to install part number ETBC7. What this part number will do is change our preexisting four pole, into a seven pole connector, and with an additional four pole, and a Short bracket, part number 18140. We're adding this to our vehicle for a later upgrade to a Prodigy RF Brake Controller. The Tekonsha Prodigy RF Brake Controller does need a 12 volt power supply ran out back, and that's all we need, the ETBC7 for. We're going to start off with our short bracket. We will take a bracket and we're just going to hold it up against our hitch and take a clamp and attach the clamp. It just slides through the connection point. We will snap the screw down and we will go ahead and tighten it. Take The tail and just tuck it over the top. more
