Recommended Brake Controller For A 1995 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup


I’m looking for a plug and play trailer brake controller for my 1995 Chevy Silverado c2500. Without tow package Thanks

Though for your vehicle there will be no plug and play brake controller options available there are ways to install a brake controller in your vehicle. First you will need The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118315 unless you already have a 4 flat harness installed. The harness plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located beneath your vehicle, along the driver's-side frame rail.

Next you need to make the 4 flat into a 7 round using The Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller - 7-Way RV and 4-Way Flat - 10 Gauge Wires # ETBC7. This will give you both options to tow a trailer with either a 7 round plug or a 4 flat connector. The adapter will also have 4 extra wires that will attach to the brake controller plug. The functions of the 4 wires are below:

Black - 12 Volt Hot Lead
Blue - Electric Brake
White - Ground
Yellow - Reverse Lights

Finally The Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller - 2 Braking Modes - 1 to 3 Axles - Proportional # RED44FR can be installed with the splice in adapter to the 4 wires above. The controller has a 3-axis accelerometer that measures deceleration in all directions for precise braking and smooth, uniform stopping action. The main unit installs out of sight with The Mounting Bracket # RE67FR being sold separately.

I attached a review video link below.
