2. Universal electrical wiring systems often require cutting and splicing existing wires, or hard-wiring your vehicle to the trailer connection. T-connectors eliminate cutting, splicing, and taping, and make it fast and easy to connect your towing products.
3. Brake control systems modulate and control electrical currents from the vehicle battery to the trailer brakes. The longer the brake is depressed the greater the current delivered to the trailer brakes until the pre-set brake power setting is reached.
4. Top quality brake control systems can detect the difference between a gradual deceleration, like slowing for a traffic light, and an unexpected event that requires sudden stopping.
5. A breakaway system will lock the brakes on the trailer in an emergency situation where the trailer becomes separated from the towing vehicle. Most states require the use of breakaway systems with separate power supplies when towing trailers.
6. Many of our electrical wiring products connect to your vehicle easily with no splicing of wires, no cutting or taping, and no special tools required.
7. Most trailers operate on a two-wire electrical system where the brake lights and turn signals operate on the same wire. When the towing vehicle has separate wires for the brake lights and turn signals, a taillight converter is required.
8. A passive electrical system operates without connecting directly to the towing vehicle's battery. An active system needs direct battery power to work. Consult your owner's manual for specific information when purchasing electrical wiring and brake control systems.
9. It is common and often helpful to have electrical and wiring systems installed by a local professional.
10. Our helpful website makes finding the wiring system that works correctly with your vehicle fast, easy, and accurate.
