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 with Wiring Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Silverado - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/p-90885-3015P.html Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2005 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup we will be installing the Prodigy P2 brake controller part number 90885-3015P. We are going to start the installation at the rear of the vehicle and I want to point out that the Silverado pickups have a couple of different options as far as the tow package goes. This particular vehicle has the factory installed 7-pole on it which you can see here is mounted to the factory installed hitch. To ensure that it is the factory installed 7-pole that we are looking at if you look at the front facing of the plug you can see the GM logo right there at the bottom. Some of the newer vehicles may have this plug mounted right here as well and having this factory installed 7-pole is going to ensure the least amount of work that we are going to need to do to install the brake controller. Even if you have just the factory installed 4-pole on the vehicle the brake controller can still be mounted using the wiring harness but there will be additional work that you will have to do. 0:59





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.





Tekonsha P-3 Proportional Brake Controller Review - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-demo-tekonsha-p3-brake-controller-90195.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to show you Part Number 90195 from Tekonsha. This is their P3 trailer brake controller. This is pretty much their top-of-the-line brake controller that is out on the market right now. What you need is, obviously, the brake controller itself, plus the mounting bracket, which is pretty unique. It actually grabs it from the top of the brake controller and snaps into place. And this little bracket here actually gets bolted on to the top here, and then this gets bolted onto your dash. And you can angle the brake controller in whatever direction you need. It also comes with a quick disconnect harness, which plugs into the back of the brake controller, and if you want to take it off when you are not using it, you just disconnect from the harness and tuck this away. And then you do not have it on your dash when you are not needing it. It comes with an informational DVD and it comes with a few connectors and screws to assemble and install on your dash, and another set of screws. And when you are not using your brake controller and you take it off, it comes with this really nice, handy carrying carrying case to put it in, so you can store it in your glove box or whatnot. And next we will go ahead and apply some power to it and show you how it works. We will show you the operation of this brake controller. It is actually very nice. This is a full-featured brake controller, and what is really unique about this brand is that it has an LED display here instead of a lot of numbers flashing like on the other brake controllers. It actually has a lot of diagnostics to tell you what is going on with your trailer. But the operation remains the same as any brake controller, especially this one. It has a manual override that activates the trailer brakes. And you just push it over and it shows you on the display in voltage how much you are sending out. And also this comes on when you hit your foot brake, just like any other brake controller. And again, it is inertia activated, so if you are sitting still and you apply the brakes you will get hardly any voltage out. But what happens is that when you do apply your brakes, there is a sensor on the inside that will know how hard you are hitting your brakes and will send current to the trailer brakes in proportion to how hard you are using the brakes in the towing vehicle. Also, this brake controller comes with three Boost settings, activated by this button right here. Basically you have Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. And what all these Boost settings do is make the brake controller come on instantly. Boost Level One puts out 13 percent of the power instantaneously and then after a second it reverts to the inertia-activated brake controller. So basically what this does is it allows your trailer brakes to work first, and then your truck brakes start working afterward. And also the same thing applies to Boosts Two and Three. Two and Three use up to 25 percent of the available braking power. However, with Two and Three, each higher setting you go to on the brake controller actually reacts faster. This button here goes through the menus that are available on the brake controller. You hit that button, and you have got different options. You have got Display, the Type of Brakes you are using in this case here on this trailer you have total electric brakes. But on some trailers you have what is called Hydraulic Over Electric, which means basically you have a hydraulic pump mounted on the trailer and the brake controller will turn on that pump to activate the hydraulic brakes on the trailer. And then you have this Help feature, which tells you what all the functions mean in the brake controller, which is pretty nice. You can change the display, you change to different colors, and different contrasts. You can change intensity, depending on how good your eyes are. And what is nice about it is it has a built-in diagnostic feature. So, for instance, if the blue wire coming from the trailer gets interrupted, causing a short, or just gets disconnected for some reason, it will actually tell you. So, we have disconnected the brakes, and it shows you in bright red and tells you what is going on. And if the blue wire rubs against the frame or gets shorted out somehow, it actually tells you that, too. And also, the other warning is that the brake controller will display a power loss. So basically if you have a loss of power going to the brake controller for a short time then it will tell you that it is losing power. To adjust the gain on the brake controller, aside from the other ones that have a little thumb wheel, it has two buttons on the side that you use for scrolling through the menus.

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
