How To Install and Connect a Trailer Brake Controller

How To Install and Connect a Trailer Brake Controller



I needed to install a trailer brake controller and wire in a 7 way connector to haul a car trailer with my truck, a 1990 C1500. In this video I take you through the process of properly wiring up a trailer brake controller and 7 way connector for your vehicle. I also show how to test and verify the circuits in case you ever need to diagnose a problem with your trailer brake connection.
