Parts Needed To Install Curt Brake Controller On a 2018 Ford E-Series Cutaway


My Ford has the factory 7 wire plug. It also has the factory plug behind the dash panel. I have a new Curt Discovery controller from another vehicle. I have ordered the 3034 adapter. The plug was cut from the Discovery when installed. Is there any reason I cannot hardwire the adapter to the controller? I appreciate the help.


Expert Reply:

In order to install the Curt Discovery Trailer Brake Controller part # C51120 on a 2018 Ford E-Series Cutaway you should be using the Curt Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers part # C51432. The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers part # 3034-P would work but you'd have to cut the brake controller side plug off as well as the plug on the end of the brake controller and hardwire the two together.
