Our last blog discussed the importance of avoiding trailer fails through proper braking! Today we want to discuss the great benefits of utilizing electronic brakes.
Electronic breaks are especially important when you are hauling heavier loads. If you opt to go this route, you will need trailer-brake controller inside your truck.
Some newer trucks come with a controller built in, but in other cases, you will need to have one installed.
If you find yourself needing to buy a controller, try to stay away from cheaper options. In many cases, these are time-based, which increase braking power depending on how much time your foot is on the brake. Instead, consider a proportional brake controller, which matches the trailer brake output to the tow vehicle’s deceleration.
You can find a quality proportional brake controller for under $150, and we are sure you will agree it is worth the money.
