Some trailers are connected to trailer brake electric controllers. These trailer brake systems help the towed vehicle know when to slow down safely. Trailers can be connected to integrated or trailer electric brake controller systems through the rear of the vehicle. This will also connect the trailer to brake lights which are important for safety when driving at night or in bad conditions.

When the trailer is properly connected, the information will appear on the dashboard of the towing vehicle. It will also show when a trailer is disconnected. Trailers should be driven slower as the vehicle is towing more than it is used to. Wheel lockup can occur and should be checked by a professional if the problem persists. Make sure to do research before the next great adventure.
