Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller





Tekonsha P3 Brake controller is a proportional trailer brake controller that has been hailed as a breakthrough. It has a system that is symmetrical and smooth. The P3 is considered as one of the leading electric brake control for trailers. This controller is transferrable between cars and includes a Liquid Crystal Display(LCD) that has modern diagnostics that you can use with ease, 3 different boost grades that allow for different levels of customized braking. Tekonsha also cares about their customers Why? Because due to customer preference they added a creative feature that allows you to change from an electric braking system to a hydraulic braking system. But I am sure you are wondering how does this brake controller work? Allow me to explain:

HOW IT WORKS


This controller gives you three options: heavy duty emergency, general or slow to idle braking automatically. The Tekonsha P3 controller can adjust to every braking situation in a different way. The force that will be used to put your brakes into motion and how fast they are applied depends on how fast the vehicle slows down. This controller uses an inertia based sensor within it that detects the level of brake applied by the tow vehicle. This sensor reacts to the slowing down of the tow vehicle by sending signals to the controller. The controller will then give the trailer brakes enough power to match the force of the tow vehicle brake. This results in a uniform brake along your setup with no push- pull action. A more practical example is that If you slam the brakes on your truck, the trailer will break with the same magnitude. If you are stopping for a red light, your trailer brakes will also slow down in the same manner slowly. Now that you know how it works we can move on to the features of this great innovation.The features are as follows:
