OEM Brake Controller Compatibility (Dodge, GM, and Ford vehicles)
Deutsche Hydrapro testing has shown that there can be compatibility issues with some OEM brake controllers.
These controllers require a specific output signal to detect a connection with a trailer’s electric brakes or electric over hydraulic (EOH) brake system.
Therefore, some OEM controllers may require enhanced signal detection to detect a correct trailer connection with EOH brake actuators.
To accommodate the various OEM controllers, we have a special compatibility adapter easily fitted to the Deutsche Hydrapro brake actuator, but any OEM compatibility adapter will work on our unit. The only brand we've experienced an issue with is Tekonsha.
