Installed and used for first time hauling heavy tandem axle cargo trailer cross country. Set for more sensative and heavier braking while trailer was loaded and quickly adjusted to less sensative, lighter braking after unloaded.( Adjusted within seconds, while on the move, no screws, easy to adjust from the driving position)

Worked extremely well! Get rid of your old time delay controllers.

Ordered on line and picked up in store. Took the store 2 days to find the item. Maybe it was misplaced because it did not work. Had it checked out at the RV dealership to make sure it was connected correctly, which it was. The controller would send a signal to the trailer brakes for a few seconds then stopped sending signal and no trailer brakes. Not good!

Bought this for my new Nissan NV 3500. Absolutely a game-changer for my cross-country PCS/Military Move, pulling a 8,000lb toy hauler. This thing is great!

    Easy to install and works great. I would recommend this to anyone pulling a trailer with brakes. Mounted it on the bottom next to the emergency brake.

      Comments about Hopkins Towing Solution Brake Control:

      I bought this product a few years ago. Been using it in my 85 K5 Blazer and never once had an issue. Its easy to use, Easy to see and works everytime. I pull a triple axle Trailer that has brakes on two axles. Heavy load you up the juice. Light or no load you lower the juice. Need to park with heavy load? Park....hold override full power down for a few secs and your trailer wont move. You have locked brakes tight. Simply go in reverse a few feet and trailer brakes are free. I am writing this review today because I just ordered another for a second truck.

                Never heard of Hopkins products before but this brake controller is much better than the last one I had before it quit working after four years (Different manufacturer and more expensive).Recommend buying the additional wiring harness. Makes installation super easy. Recommend ordering online and picking up in the store. Cheaper and you get the product right away.

                  Bottom line is this is by far the easiest, simplest brake controller out there. The variable pressure, right down to 0 at a standstill is awesome. Easy to read digital display.
