Default Re: Trailer Brake Controller Install

After doing some research and talking to installers I settled on a Tekonsha 90250 which is a little spendy at "around" $300 !! You mount the main control on the trailer and have a remote that plugs into to 12v outlet in the dash and is hand held. As long as you have 12v at the 7pin your good to go. I was SHOCKED when I read in the owners manual that if I were pulling anything over 1000# that the item being pulled ( in my case a 5 x 8 utility trailer that weighs 850# empty ) needed brakes !!! I am paying $450+ to have electric brakes installed on the trailer :--(( I am having to be real careful not to let my trailer get "tongue heavy" so that it cuts into my GRVW. Right now it looks like we may have to drive naked to keep below max allowed weight ( might even have to shave the cats to get the weight down ;--))
