This kit and the accompanying video were a great fit to get a brake controller on my Jeep. Everything worked as planned. The video even told me I would need a little extra wire and a nut, that I went ahead and got even though I didn't actually end up needing it. Thanks etrailer for the excellent products and service.

Works great and "as advertised". Only problem was I chose the "free shipping" option as a promotion when I purchased it and it took 10 days to get to me. I found that unacceptable. It shouldn't take that long to ship a product weighing in at 1.5 lbs. and the size of a fist from the midwest to Cali. I needed it in 7 days so had to go out and find the exact same one at a local store (for $50 more), then return the etrailer one to the store for a refund when it finally came. I would have saved money and time by just paying the few bucks to get 3-5 day shipping. Nowhere on the free shipping promotion did it say how long it would take.

  • What Size Nuts Are Needed to Connect Wires Under Hood for Brake Controller Installation on GMC Yukon
    As it seems you already know, when installing a trailer brake controller on your 2007 GMC Yukon you will need to locate the two wires under the hood that need to be connected to fully activate the vehicle's tow package. One is the power wire to the brake control and the other is the battery charge line to the 7-Way connector. You will need to attach both of the wires to the threaded studs under the Gray handle at the front of the fuse box. To do this you will need one M6 x 1.0 nut like...

    Sounds like you have a GM truck that has underhood connections that need to be made for the brake controller circuit to be functional and you are wondering if a lock nut could be used instead of a standard nut and the answer is yes. The Nylock of the lock nut would not interfere with the connection at all.
