I have a 2012 Chevy with the built-in brake control. Is everything wired--brakes, battery, lights---and ready to go?


Yep, actually drove to all of these places---in the last eight years. Missed Rhode Island and New Jersey.

I had a new 2011 Chevy and the 2012 and everything worked. I do have a CM hauler bed on the 2012 Chevy 3500HD DRWs and everything was plug and play on the CM hauler Bed install... Everything worked on every 3500HD DRW's I have owned prior to the IBC except on the 2005 and the 2007 I did have to connect one wire, which was very simple... Good Luck. Happy Trails....

You'll probably have a problem if your trailer has Dexter electric over hydralic brakes...I was in the middle of this dilemna a E/H brakes (confirmed by both GM and Dexter)...there are work-arounds but I went with taking my Dexter Predator controller from my old truck and having it installed on the new truck...was an irritant that Chevrolet hasn't solved this problem...the IBC works with Dexter on the Ford and Dodge.

don't know why a couple of sentences on the above post didn't appear. "I was in the middle of this dilemna a year ago with a new 2011 Chev Duramax and a trailer with Dexter E/H brakes. The IBC doesn't work with Dexter E/H brakes (not sure if there are other E/H brake systems and whether the IBC would work with a non-Dexter, or not.

You will need to change the trailer side 7 pin RV connector. All of the OEM truck manufactures have TSB, s recommending this. The twin contact terminals used by most trailer manufactures doesn't work well the truck receptacle. Just change out the trailer side connector to a Pollack flat blade style and you will have no intermittent problems.
