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.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Equinox

Speaker: Today, in this 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller, part number TK90160, in conjunction with the etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Controller Installation Kit, part number ETBC7, and the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit for Chevrolet Equinoxes, part number RM-751429.Here's what our brake controller looks like installed. 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.
