ELECTRIC BRAKE CONTROLLER FAQ

HOW DOES AN ELECTRIC BRAKE CONTROLLER WORK?

The electric brake controller works by sensing the vehicle's braking action and sending appropriate signals to the trailer's electric brakes, enabling proportional braking between the towing vehicle and the trailer. 

ARE ALL ELECTRIC BRAKE CONTROLLERS THE SAME?

No, not all electric brake controllers are the same. Electric brake controllers come in various types and models, each offering different features and capabilities. The main types of electric brake controllers are:

  • Time-Delayed Brake Controllers
  • Proportional Brake Controllers
  • Inertia-Activated Brake Controller
  • User-Adjustable Brake Controller

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT BRAKE CONTROLLER I NEED?

When choosing an electric brake controller, it's essential to consider factors such as the type of towing you'll be doing, the weight of the trailer, the towing vehicle's capabilities, and your preference for features and adjustability. Ensure that the brake controller you select is compatible with your vehicle and trailer setup and that it meets your towing needs for safety and efficiency. 

CAN YOU INSTALL AN ELECTRIC BRAKE CONTROLLER YOURSELF?

Yes, you can install an electric brake controller yourself if you have the necessary tools, skills and wiring instructions. Product manuals are available online, plus videos and electric brake controller wiring guides are available in our resources section.

ARE BRAKE CONTROLLERS PLUG AND PLAY?

Brake controllers are not typically "plug and play" devices, but some modern models come with features that make installation easier and more straightforward. The installation process for a brake controller involves connecting it to the vehicle's electrical system and setting it up to work with the trailer's electric brakes. 

WHAT IS THE EASIEST BRAKE CONTROLLER TO INSTALL? 

The REDARC Tow Pro is generally considered to be an easy trailer brake controller to install. There are videos in our resources section and wiring guides for you to follow.

DO YOU NEED A TRAILER BRAKE CONTROLLER FOR A TRAILER?

In Australia, trailers with a Gross Trailer Mass (GTM) exceeding 750 kg are required to have brakes fitted. Additionally, trailers with a Gross Combination Mass (GCM) over a certain limit may also require brakes. For trailers that require brakes, it is essential to have a suitable electric brake controller installed in the towing vehicle.

DO I NEED A BRAKE CONTROLLER TO TOW A CARAVAN?

If your caravan's GTM is above 750 kg, it is essential to have brakes installed on the caravan. And when your caravan has brakes, it is typically a legal requirement to have an appropriate brake controller installed in the towing vehicle. 

WHAT IS THE BEST BRAKE CONTROLLER FOR A CARAVAN?

REDARC Tow Pro Elite Electric Brake Controller was named best brake controller by Jack Frost 4x4 Offroad because it’s the only brake controller on the market with 2 braking modes at the turn of a dial. It comes with a free universal pig-tail wiring harness and universal switch insert panel.
