        Comments about Hopkins Towing Solution Digital Brake Control w/ Plug In Connector:

        The brake controller sold to me looked nothing like the one pictured. Not sure if I got the one I ordered or if they sent me a cheaper model, but it works like it's supposed to, and that's what matters. It was easy to install on my 2011 GMC Sierra. The instructions included with the controller weren't very good, but I used a video from etrailer and wrote down which wires to connect, and it went together like a charm. (GM stopped leaving a plug-in for brake controllers in 2008, so I had to connect some wires)

        I'm towing a 23 foot V-nose enclosed aluminum trailer with 3 snowmobiles in it. The controller lets you set the power output in 5% incriments. When the trailer is empty, I lock up the tires at 15%. With the 3 sleds, I could set it at 20% without locking the wheels and still feel it slowing me.

        For a wire connector, I bought a plug in harness for a pre-2008 GMC, plugged one end into my brake controller and cut the plug off the other end, then spliced my ends.

                I'm glad to assist, FireDad! Currently, we don't have anything showing for your vehicle online. After that, I found that the part number 47815 will work up to 2012 Tundra. This is not sold on AdvanceAutoParts.com. I recommend checking with your local store for availability.

                Hi Richard, glad to assist you! This part should work fine on your 2014 Toyota Tacoma. However, this part is universal and not vehicle specific. It does not come with the wiring harness. We have Hoppy Brake Control Connector (Part No. 11147755) wiring harness which would be compatible with this brake controller.
