Installing Jackalopee with Hayes controller ?'s

Hi Everyone,

 

I am planning to install a Jackalopee and a Hayes brake controller. I am a rookie at doing this kind of work. I was hoping that the Jackalopee can help with the install of the Hayes controller wires. There are three wires coming off of the Hayes controller. A blue, red, and black wire. I understand that the black wire goes to the positive side of the battery. Or could I pick up 12 volts off of the Jackalopee ? The blue wire goes to the connector for the trailer brakes. Can I pick up this source from the Jackalopee ? The red wire goes to the mechanical stoplight switch. Can I pick up this source also from the Jackalopee ? I am also planning to put in some terminal blocks to help install the Jackalopee this way I can isolate any problem that I might have. I got this idea from Jim of Jim & Alie. Is there anything that I am missing ? I need to have this work finished before the '16 ECR. I don't like how the brakes react on the trailer.

 

Thank you for any and all help,

Al

 

I have also looked at the resource guide with no luck. If I have passed something up please point me in the right direction.

AL,

 

If I recall the Jackalopee has all you need. Here is the installation manual, see if it answers your question.

I think page 5 may be what you need.

Alan- you should be able to connect the "red" wire to the brake light terminal on your terminal strips. Put a fuse in line on the black power wire near the battery. The "Blue" connects straight to the Jackalopee. The Jack takes care of it from there.

Hi Guys,

 

This info is going to help. If I have more questions later, I will post them. But for now things look good.
