Quality Brake Controllers

Welcome to Hayes Towing Electronics! If you’re in need of quality electric trailer brake controllers, you’ve come to the right place!

The first Hayes trailer brake controller was invented by The Kelsey Hayes Company in Detroit Michigan in the 1950’s. These original trailer brake controllers were hydraulic over electric and required a direct tie in to the tow vehicle’s air or hydraulic braking system. In the 1970’s the technology moved to the proportional electronic brake controller with Hayes again leading the way.

Today’s trailer brake controllers have evolved into safer and smarter systems to adapt to today’s towing needs. The company has built a 60-year legacy of making sure when dealers recommend Hayes products, that they can do so with confidence. All of the company’s electronic controller models all have the ‘quik-connect®’ feature to make installation on the tow vehicle easy and practically error-free, plus it eliminates the need to ‘hard-wire’ the brake control to the tow vehicle. Hayes controllers have an exclusive four-wire connector that when used with a vehicle-specific wiring harness enables the brake controller to essentially be plugged in and ready to go.

Other Hayes-specific features include how the controllers activate the trailer stop lights when the brake control is manually activated. Additionally, our controllers, in a manual application, would ramp to 100 percent power. Our competitors would ramp only to preset power, which means if you get in a panic situation our controllers will deliver full braking power.

We manufacture a full line of Specialty & Premium Brake Controllers, Inertia/Proportional Brake Controllers, Time-Based Brake Controllers, and Accessories. Browse our site, checkout our product lookup tool or contact a dealer near you today!

left-icon Please allow me to comment on my positive experiences with 'TRAILER LIFE" magazine, have been a subscriber for years, and "GOOD SAM CLUB" life member for many years. I have often mentioned to camper owner friends how valuable 'TRAILER LIFE" has been for us. In addition to product information and technical advice, there are "travelogues" monthly and we save the magazines for future reference. Several years ago we almost "lost" our camper due to a tire leaking air, We purchased the TIRE MINDER TPMS system and have never had a fear of something like this happening again. They replace the batteries at no cost annually with just an email request. We became aware of this product through 'TRAILER LIFE".

Last month, read about the "MORyde's suspension system, contacted our local RV dealer, Jenning's RV, Princeton, WV, and had the product installed last week. Just pulled camper about 15 miles home on a four lane highway, and could feel a positive improvement right away.

Thank you for allowing me share this with 'TRAILER LIFE', I believe every camper owner should subscribe to this publication.

please let your team know that I am now a huge advocate for your anti sway control system and will be encouraging others to purchase your product.
I have been pulling my personal boat and travel trailers for approximately 18 years in several states.

Because of this, I have experienced many weather and traffic situations educating me for all my future travels. Our latest adventure was pulling our travel trailer from Arizona to Oregon and back. We decided to purchase the electronic sway control system this trip and a very good thing we did!

On our way to Oregon we had to pass through California where as normal, we experienced heavy cross winds. Palm springs was the worst of it and the system worked well above our expectations. One concern we had with moving to the electronic sway control was the brake action slowing us down while it hit the brakes. Our concerns were turned to delight as we never felt any braking as our trailer stayed straight behind us during heavy cross winds.

Now on to the more important experiences and why we are so grateful for purchasing your product.

As we were traveling on I10 in California in the slow lane, (Max speed in CA with a trailer in 55 mph) I noticed the cars in the fast lane came to an abrupt stop. I started to slow down in case one of them decided to pull in our lane but at the same time I noticed a large U Haul truck in the fast lane heading at the stopped cars at full speed. I hit the brakes and made a hard right turn into the emergency lane. Our trailer followed right behind us with no issues.

The second situation was where we felt blessed to have purchased your product. We were on our way back to Arizona still in Oregon. We were on a mountain freeway, on a 6% down grade, and on a long right turn at 60 mph. Next the we are is a car coming the opposite direction in our lane heading right towards us. I had two decisions to make in a split second. Hit the car head on and hope we make it out alive, or whip a hard right knowing we will most likely jack knife and flip over our truck. I chose to whip it hard right and to my surprise, our trailer followed right behind us allowing me to dodge the car and then make a hard left to get back on the road.

If we had the traditional sway bars or no sway control, I know without a doubt my wife and I would not be here today! Your product saved our lives and we are now sharing your product and our experience with everyone we know.

Thank you for making an amazing product!

Sincerely,
Bluefield, Chris Wildoner
