Trailer Braking

Trailer braking is the most critical function of towing. Therefore, electric braking provides the ultimate in control and safety

HydraStar® has the quickest response time and the lowest current draw of any brake actuator on the market.

Note: Proportional controllers do not supply 100% of the voltage when the vehicle is not moving. Your car must be driving for the Hydrastar to work correctly.

To test the braking system, pull the pin on the breakaway kit to assist you to bleed the system of hydraulic oil.
