CURT (51160): Assure™ Brake Controller with Dynamic Viewscreen

The powerful, compact, all-new Assure™ brake controller from CURT features a dynamic, 1 1/2” wide OLED screen that displays simple, concise, easy-to-read messages that facilitate straightforward trailer brake setup and operation. The screen also folds out to ensure a clear view no matter the mounting angle of the controller.

The Assure™ (CURT 51160) operates using a powerful triple-axis, motion-sensing accelerometer for smooth, safe braking every time. It also installs using a CURT Quick Plug harness (sold separately) for no-splice, plug-and-play convenience.
