Ebay find to finish tow package

I bought this 2013 SL 4x4 last month. It has the big tow package (gears, mirrors, trans guage, 27 series battery, receiver...etc) I found the cable for the controller in the glove box. I don't have a trailer as of yet but plan to buy a 19' - 23' toy box in the future so I started to look at controllers to be prepared! I found this Hayes Genesis on Ebay, boxed new, for $22. An internet search showed others selling it for $80-$125. I don't need anything fancy and it looks easy to install. Wiring is already done!

Re: Ebay find to finish tow package

I always stick with Tekonsha brake controllers, specifically I love the P3. They make a factory wiring adapter so you just plug one into the controller and the other into the factory hookup. Couldn't be easier.

Tekonsha - Trailer Brake Control - Proportional
Tekonsha - Trailer Brake Control Harness

The nice thing about one like the P3, it will do electric or hydraulic over electric, nice to have the flexibility to not limit yourself in the future.

I also have a 2013 SL. Love my truck.

Re: Ebay find to finish tow package

I would think the highly desired proportional nature of the P2 or P3 would not be duplicated in a $22.00 controller signal. And I would also want to know how the ability to fine tune the amount of signal (pressure) being sent to the trailer brakes is adjusted. Comes in real handy when going uphill and downhill in certain parts of the country. You don't want binary braking back there.

You could start here:https://www.etrailer.com/comparison....1790&pc2=90885

These guys are quite helpful on the phone as well.

Re: Ebay find to finish tow package

I have the same brake controller that Indy does. I've tested it out rather severely a couple of times and it has done a fantastic job.

SDHarleyDad, I bought my controller based on the overwhelming recommendations for that specific unit here on the forum. Given what it does, I would go with one that is so highly recommended.

«Granite '07 LE Crew Cab, 4x4, Big Tow, Off-Road, Side Curtain Airbags, Sunroof»
«ClearBra, Leer 100XQ, MM SI9500 Winch, 18" Magnaflow, Berk b-pipes, Volant PowerCore, AMSoil bumper to bumper, Uprev tuned, CSF radiator, e-fans, JBA LT headers»
«SAW Coilovers and rear shocks, PRG upper control arms and shackles, Hellwig rear sway bar»

Re: Ebay find to finish tow package

Here are some proportional options... I towed a camper with the time delay controller years ago.. hated it.
The Voyager isn't a bad option for 83 bucks...and thats with the cable for your truck
