Recommended Brake Controller for 2022 Toyota Tacoma  


My 2022 Toyota Tacoma has the factory 7 pin connector on the back bumper, but no brake controller. I'd like to tow a small camper that's equipped with electric brakes, so I'll need to install a brake controller, but I'm not sure which one I need and how difficult the installation is.


Expert Reply:

I really like a remote-mounted controller like the Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty, part # RED24FR and the # RED99FR wiring harness. The brake controller itself mounts under the dash, out of sight. The controller would be operated via the control knob which could be installed using an un-used switch knockout in the dash or center console. A mounting bezel like part # 331-TPSI-002 would make for a factory-looking installation.

The Tekonsha # TK90160 Primus you'd looked at would also work just fine for you, along with the # 3031-P wiring harness, but the controller would mount to the underside or on the downward slope of the dash, which the driver could hit their knees on it.

I've linked to a demonstration video showing a typical installation.
