Can I Use a Brake Controller with a Trailer Connected on a Front Hitch?


If I add a front hitch to a 2022 Ford F350 can I still add the electric brakes system? I want the electric brake system to work while using the front hitch. Wanting to park a travel trailer by driving down a steep driveway with curves.


Expert Reply:

Yes, this can be done. However, you need an additional 7-way harness # ETBC7 to activate the trailer's brakes as you go down the driveway.

If you need a front hitch for your 2022 Ford F-350, I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # EH83GR. This hitch comes with the highest weight rating we offer on your vehicle. Additionally, it is a completely hidden design which means there will be no bulky crosstubes that create an eyesore on your new truck. As far as installation, it includes a bolt-on process. To top it all off, it is 100% made in the U.S.A.
