The Genesis brake controller by Hayes is designed to provide smooth and quick braking in any situation. It features adjustable gain settings so that the driver can set the amount of power sent to the trailer's brakes. The Genesis supports automatic and manual operation of your trailer's electric brakes. It offers 5 Boost settings that let you adjust initial braking power and aggressiveness. The product has an easy-to-read LED display that communicates brake power output, boost setting, and error codes.

The brake controller has integrated safeguards that provide for your safe towing experience. Manual override is going to illuminate the brake lights on the tow vehicle and trailer. It has a current limiter that protects your vehicles from shorts in the trailer wiring. It also has a hazard flasher immunity which means that it prevents the pulsing of the brakes when flashers are activated. The Genesis also has a boost feature that gives you the ability to apply more initial braking power when you're towing heavy loads or a large trailer.

The Genesis is a proportional brake controller so it applies the trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicle's brake in action. If you slam on the brakes in your tow vehicle, the controller will activate your trailer brakes with the same intensity. And if you gently decelerate as you approach a traffic light, your trailer will brake in the same manner. The Genesis Brake Controller can be used with electric and electric-over hydraulic braking systems. The installation is easy, mounting hardware is included.

Hayes® Hayes proudly manufactures electronic brake controllers to cover all towing needs. The first Hayes brake controller rolled out from the assembly line in the 1950's. The company has more than 60 years of experience in producing brake controllers. Hayes has withstood the test of time and still holds leading positions on the automotive market. By incorporating new technologies like the 'quik-connect' system, Hayes is able to stay on the forefront of intelligent brake systems. Hayes brake controllers ensure safe deceleration with extra weight behind your vehicle.

Hayes® 81790 - Genesis Brake Control
I purchased this controller because I upgraded to a larger three axle trailer and the controller I had was not strong enough for what I needed. I ordered the controller and received it in timely fashion. When I installed it using all the same wiring I already had I was very pleased with the modern system. I no longer spend time adjusting and setting the controller. It is fully self controlled and it knows when it needs more power. Also it has a great feature that it knows when the trailer is hooked up and can also diagnose connection problems. All in all I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to my friends.
