If you have multiple vehicles towing your trailer with electric brakes, then this Brake Controller is ideal.
Note: For use on trailers under 2000kg only.
Question: How does an under-dash or trailer mounted brake controller work?
Answer: The brake controller is activated by the driver from his normal seating position when the brakes.
Pre-set the knob on the brake controller according to the weight of the trailer. Most trailers carry the same weight daily. Example, builders trailer, car carriers, pop tops, RV, etc
Multi vehicles without brake controllers can tow trailers with trailer-mounted brake controllers.
NO longer do you need multiple brake controllers in all vehicles to tow the same trailer.
Note: We recommend that a licensed repair facility install Brake Controllers. Some buyers return the unit claiming that it is not working. In most instances, a blown diode is the cause of this unit not working.
Crossed wires cause diodes to blow. Submersion also causes diodes to blow.
There is no warranty claim in this instance.
