Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Acura MDX

Today on our 2016 Acura MDX, we're going to take a look at the CURT Echo proportional brake controller. This is designed for one, up to two axles. The part number is C51180. The Echo being a proportional brake controller is going to be a lot safer than what we're used to with the old time delay brake controllers. Basically with the Echo, it's going to brake in proportion to how your vehicle's braking, so it has a sensor inside. If we slam on the brakes, we're going to get a lot of braking power back to our trailer very quickly.

This brake controller is gonna allow you to hook up any trailer with up to three axles and provide power brake assist. What sets this REDARC unit apart from other braking systems is how clean it looks on the install, all the options of places you can put the small remote monitor control knob, and the way the actual control unit doesn't need to be mounted right here underneath the dash, right in your way. You can tuck it up underneath your dash 'cause you don't even need to access it.The control module mounted underneath the dash has an internal inertia sensor that will allow it to be fully proportional when braking on your trailer. You can adjust the brake force from 10 to zero on the control knob, and if you press in on the knob and hold it, that will manually apply the brakes. This is great for testing everything out and making sure it's working properly.
