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.
Installed in 10mins in 2018 ram 1500 ecodiesel, have not used with trailer yet. Seems good for price, mounting bracket could be made a little better. Good service from e trailer
First time user on eTrailer. Great website and easy to use. With my parts selected the site suggested the quick connect wire kit for my vehical. This made installation a breeze.
Good controller at a good price. Works as expected. Fast shipping at standard rate. This controller was installed in an 08 Sprinter camper with the help of the on line video from etrailer. Thanks, Gary
easy to install. Brakes tested good to trailer. I used self taping screws to mount brackets, rather than the bolts and nuts that it came with.It was to difficult to get my hands in position to use bolts and nuts (no big deal).
Original supplied item was defective, however Hayes customer service immediately sent another unit and it works great. With the addition of a small removable slip in bracket for the console of my 2012 GMC 1500 Crew Cab and the wiring adapter, I can simply plug and play when I need the controller as opposed to a permanent installation that I have in my other pickup.
Works well. I like the delayed brake activation, it seems to be a smoother transition. The custom harness makes installing this controller easy and FAST. Love buying Made in the USA products and etrailer.com has a lot of them.
This is the 2nd one of these I’ve bought. I like the time delay application to the brakes. Always will try to buy products made in the USA. The price went up since I bought this same controller 1 1/2 years ago.
