Hayes Brake Controller Power ?

I plugged mine into the fuse block for quick easy access since we were in a hurry to get it on the road for the WCR. Figure I will be running lots more through he firewall later and will revisit at that time.

 

When I did the one for a client, I took the time to source the power from the battery junction block on the firewall with a circuit breaker inline.

I saw on one of Gregg's videos he already has power in the Jackalopee for trailer battery charging so he would bring the power from there to the controller at the same time he was installing the blue wire form the controller to the Jackalopee. Same thing if one needed to get a signal from the brake switch you could pick it up from the brake light wiring there.

You don't need a brake switch feed to make it work either. It's only to turn on the brake lights when applying trailer brakes via the controller. I skipped this as well since I would be using the hand valve to manually apply the trailer brakes and the applied pressure will activate the brake lights.

I will have to open the hood and see if I can fine a battery junction block on the firewall. Is there any other idea's out there ? Is there any place on the fuse box to tap into ? I would like to keep the fuses as close as possible.

 

Thanks CrazyCooter for the idea,

Al
