Why Brake Controllers Are Necessary When Towing

Sometimes history can cloud judgment in the decision making process and when it comes to brake controllers this is often the case.  Many new RV'ers receiving advice have a father, uncle or other acquaintance who towed a trailer all over the country with an imperfect setup and no trailer brakes with out incident. But times have changed, vehicles are moving faster, trailers are heavier and there is more of everything on the roads today.  Being able to stop quickly is so important and a good quality brake controller is of utmost importance to any trailer setup.   Deciding on a time delay setup or inertia activated proportional brake controller should be done with research and evaluation. Always take into account the size of your tow vehicle and trailer weights staying within the safe tow ratings set by the manufacturer.
