Brake Controller

Brake controllers are an essential part of a towing system with electric trailer brakes, and they offer a much-needed emergency braking feature. We offer high quality controllers from manufacturers such as Draw-Tite, Tekonsha, Valley, Hidden Hitch and Hopkins. Featuring both time-delay and proportional models, we have the right controller for any application. Brake controller wiring adapters are available for many vehicles, allowing for simple plug-and-play installation. Hardwire kits are also available to make any installation hassle-free.

Find your custom fit brake controller wiring adapter for a plug-in application by selecting the year of your vehicle to the left. We offer custom fit plug in adapters for many of the most popular vehicles, including Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, GMC, Nissan, and Toyota.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford Escape

Today on our 2008 Ford Escape we'll be installing the Tekonsha Primus IQ trailer brake controller, part number TK90160. Now this button on top here is our boost control. This will adjust how much brake power goes to our brakes when we are towing heavier loads. We're going to dial up our boost level settings as appropriate to give us more power. Basically what that means is that the boost settings will give you more intense braking faster than if you had the boost levels turned off. Now, if you want to adjust your braking power, you turn it all the way down off so when I hit our manual lever here, you can see we have no assist. We had it all the way up to 11.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2013 Ford Escape

Today, on our 2013 Ford Escape, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller, 1 to 4 axles, proportional. It is Part #90195, and we'll also be using the ETBC7 Connector to ease our installation. The ETBC7 kit comes with this nice bracket here, to mount the 7-pole round connector that our trailer brake controller will be using. As you can see on our hitch right here, there's a nice mounting point for it, so I'm going to go ahead and star the installation by securing it with the included screw and washer on the bottom. Then we'll use the star lock washer, and the nut. Screw it on around.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Ford Escape

Today on our 2011 Ford Escape we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Hopkins Insight Flex-mount Trailer Brake Controller for one to four axles, part number HM47297. This is a versatile system. You can put your display any place you'd like, your manual switch any place you'd like, and you can hide the control box behind a panel or on the outside of a kick panel. It gives you a lot of options as to where you can mount your controller and all your other parts. Now, our button on the left side is our sensitivity controller. The heavier your load, the higher you want to rate this. It's got seven settings, so if you have a really heavy load you want to have it up on seven.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Ford Escape

Today on our 2011 Ford Escape we're going to install part number 90885. This is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller. Now to help us with our install we're using a couple other parts. We're using the ETBC7 Brake Controller install kit as well as a long bracket from from Tow Ready part number 18136. We'll start off with that part first. This is our bracket we're going to install first.
