Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 - etrailer.com

http://www.etrailer.com/p-90195-3015P.html Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 we will be installing part number 90195-3015P. This is a Tekonsha P3 brake control module and wiring harness. First we are going to install our mounting bracket. The customer chose to place it under the dash. I like to use an extra clamp as a third hand to hold it in place. Next, using the hardware provided, I will pre-drill two holes, here and here, to set our mounting screws. A second option instead of pre-drilling and using the screws that come with the mounting kit it to use self-tapping screws that will run straight in to the metal underneath the dash. Now I am going to install the brake control module. As you can see, there are two screws mounted on either side. You just want to snug those down tight enough so the module is secure. I like to set it at an angle. It is easy for the driver to read and utilize when necessary. 1:02

Trailer Brake Controller Comparison Review - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-brake-controller-comparison-faq.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to talk about the two main kinds of brake controllers, the proportional and the time delay. The two we have here are the Journey HD and the Draw-Tite Activator II. These are what you call the time delay brake controllers. Basically what happens is that when you hit the brakes, they come on at a certain speed that you set on the brake controller. Like on this one here, we have a sync switch here that controls how fast it comes on and then this knob here controls how much power it takes to stop the trailer. Basically you hit your foot brake and it comes on at the rate you determine and at how much power youve set aside for it, and then it stays there until you completely let off the brake. However, there is not a time delay on these. These are inertia activated, which means there is basically a little pendulum on the inside for lack of a better term that just moves forward as soon as you hit your brakes. With inertia, you know, as soon as you hit your brakes, stuff goes flying forward. With a little movement in here it does the same thing. The more the movement goes up, the more power it sends out to the trailer brakes. So once your trailer brakes start activating and your truck brakes start activating, everything starts slowing down. The pendulum starts coming back down too, and also it lets off the current going out to the trailer at the same time. So that way you have a gradual stopping power going with the trailer brakes. It makes the trailer act as one with the truck, more so than with the time delay units. A couple of differences about these is basically in how you install these on your vehicle. Whats really nice about the time delay ones is you can mount them like that, or sideways, or upside down it does not matter because they are completely solid state no moving parts whatsoever. And this one, the same way you can mount it on top of the dash, sideways, you can mount it on the bottom basically anywhere you want, as long as you keep it in easy reach. Now with the proportional one its a different story. They have a limited amount of angle that you can install them at. Basically you have about a 70-degree angle up and maybe a 30-degree angle down. It varies with different brake controllers. I think with the Odyssey you can probably go up to 90 degrees and it will work just fine. However, you cant really do any tilting like this, just a little like this, and maybe a hair of an angle like this from left to right. And you can do that on both of these. But for the most part, the closer to level you can keep the proportional ones the better off you are. Basically, some people ask, Well I only use it two or three times a year, do I really need to spend all that money on a brake controller? If its only two or three times a year and you have got a small pop-up camper, chances are the time delay one is going to work just fine for you. And, in fact, this one has a quick disconnect so when you are not using it you can just disconnect it from you vehicle, uninstall it and just keep it in your glove box or toolbox or wherever you want to keep it. If you are going to do a lot of heavy-duty hauling or even light duty with a pop-up camper but you are going to be driving a lot of miles you are going to be more impressed with the performance of the the proportional ones. Again, its a little bit more of a headache to install in the mounting position, but you will get better performance all around, and smoother braking. And you wont get that kind of jerky action when the brakes and trailer engage and the slack gets taken out of the coupler and the receiver hitch, and itll be a little smoother on that. Again, if you are going to drive a lot of miles, I recommend the proportional. For two or three times a year or for the weekend warrior or short trips, the time delay ones are probably going to be your best bet. I think maybe a possible advantage of the time delay over the proportional ones is it is kind of nice to feel your brakes working on the trailer almost all the time. Basically, you can feel them working right off the bat and it gives you a little extra sense of security. Again, you get a little rougher ride, but you do get a sense of security when you do that. However, that being said, the better brake controllers, like the P3 and the Odyssey, they have whats called Boost features in them. And basically it makes the brakes come on five percent right off the bat. So it works kind of like a time delay at first, and then about a second later it reverts to its proportional mode and it everything works a lot smoother. That way, you can get the feeling of a time delay, where you can definitely feel the brakes working, but then you wont have that jerky action when you start slowing down.





Installation of a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado - etrailer.com

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Chevy Silverado - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/Brake-Controller/Tekonsha/90885.html Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2011 Chevy Silverado pickup, we are going to be installing the Prodigy P2 brake controller part number 90885. Our 2011 Silverado actually comes with a factory installed brake control wiring package on it already. So, there is no need for use to run the wires manually. The wires that we are looking to wire our brake controller into are located underneath the dash area, just directly above the brake pedal. These wires are open ended and are taped to the main wiring lead. If you locate the wires and pull them out a little bit, you can see that there is actually a label tied to it that indicates which wire is which. And that way you will know that you have the correct wires for the brake controller. So with the wires located, we can go ahead and cut the tape that is holding it to the main wiring harness lead here. And that will allow us to pull it down so we have some more working room. And with those pulled down, we will quickly go over the wires that we have here. We are actually only going to be using four of these wires to hook to our brake controller. And we are going to go ahead and wire those together now. 1:00

http://www.etrailer.com/p-TH9003.html Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to show you the Thule Raceway platform style two bike carrier, part number TH9003. To mount the Raceway on your vehicle, check the instructions for the proper fit dial setting. On our Jetta we need to be at number 7. The rack will sit on the trunk of the vehicle. The top two cables are going to hook to the trunk lid by the rear windshield. The bottom two cables will hook to the lower lip of the trunk lid. Once the rack is centered, you can use the knobs on the end of the rack to tighten up the cables. The trays on this rack will telescope out to accommodate bikes of varying lengths. Undo the latch and slide the tray out to fit your bike. Once the proper length is set, simply close the latch and the tray is locked in place. The arms of the rack will come down and clamp on to the top tube of the frame. We will put our bike in place, lower the arm and close the clamp on the tube. Once we have the clamp in place, we can secure the wheels with the included wheel straps. 0:57

2010-13 Ford F150 Ecoboost OEM Trailer Brake Controller Installation
This is an instructional video on how to add a Ford OEM trailer brake controller to a 2010+ F150 that did not come with one from the factory. You can only add a Factory trailer brake to F150's with a Ford factory installed tow package that features a receiver hitch and 2 trailer connection plugs (7 pin and 4 pin). If you truck doesn't have the Ford factory installed receiver and only has the 4 pin trailer plug and bumper hitch, this will not work for you. You will have to explore other options to add an aftermarket trailer brake controller to your truck. I was shopping for a new F150 with the OEM trailer brake controller already installed. I came across a super deal on this 2012 FX4 leftover that had everything I wanted except the OEM trailer brake controller. I considered adding an Tekonsha Prodigy P3 aftermarket controller but I didn't want to drill holes in my dash board and have some contraption to bang my knee on while trying to drive. I ran across some forums describing this installation and put together a video for everyone to learn from. To get this option factory installed on a F150, it will add $300 to the window sticker. I was able to add the factory trailer brake with new Ford parts and labor for under $170. The most trouble I had was convincing the dealer service department to plug my truck in and activate my controller. Detailed instructions for the dealer tech are included with the part and should not be any problem for them to perform. They basically navigate to the trailer brake menu on their computer and "flip a switch". If you have a 2010 F150, your part number is AL3Z-19H332-AA. If you have a 2011-2013 F150, your part number is BL3Z-19H332-AA. Both can be found on Ebay or Amazon. UPDATE: 8/19/2013 I now have 4200 miles on my truck, 2000 of those miles were pulling a trailer. The Ford F150 brake controller works great. I have pulled my trailer through some tricky hills in southern Ohio back roads and it pulled and braked very well. This is well worth the investment IMO. UPDATE: 8/25/2013 I found some useful information on this forum for those of you who do not have a factory tow package. It looks like with some creativeness you can add the OEM trailer brake controller! http://www.f150online.com/forums/electrical-systems/483894-2012-f150-4pin-7 -pin-no-tow-package-myths-truths-compendium-information.html

How To Rebuild a Front Brake Caliper -EricTheCarGuy
In the past few videos I've been getting my Fairmont ready to take to the drag strip. Since I discovered some brake issues I thought it best to address those. In this video I rebuild the right front caliper. Turns out after I replaced the brake hoses that it was sticking and not releasing. Not wanting to spend the money on a new caliper, I decided to go for a rebuild. Now may of you may question the logic of doing this, especially when you see the caliper piston, but keep in mind my intention is to replace the entire brake system when I upgrade the engine and suspension on this car so it doesn't make sense to make a huge investment in this car as it is now. So for the naysayers, it's temporary, chill out. Either way I hope you enjoy this video and that it helps you if you find yourself needing to rebuild a front brake caliper. It is a cheap alternative IF your piston isn't all corroded. BTW it's not likely your piston isn't going to be all corroded. Good luck.
