Parts Needed to Make Factory Brake Controller on 2020 GMC 3500 HD Work with HydraStar EOH Actuator


Will this work with a2020 GMC 350 HD with intergraded trailer brakes? HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator Adapter Module for Ford and Chevy Brake Controllers Item # HBA-CAM


Expert Reply:

If you've got a HydraStar EOH Actuator, then yes, the # HBA-CAM will work well with the factory integrated brake controller module on your 2020 GMC 3500 HD. If you don't have a HydraStar EOH actuator on your trailer, your best bet is going to be installing a brake controller that is compatible with EOH brakes and bypassing the factory system.

If you're going to go that route I recommend using the Curt Echo Mobile # C51180, which is a wireless brake controller that is compatible with EOH brakes and is controlled by your smartphone. The Echo is a plug and play option that installs using the 7 way connector on your truck, so there is no wiring into the truck required and provides you with responsive, proportional braking for your trailer. The Echo requires your smartphone operating system to be iOS 8.0 (or newer) or Android 4.4 (or newer), but otherwise is compatible with any vehicle with a 7way connector.

I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to have a look at.
