Re: Trailer Brakes

I would go with electric brakes , much easier to install , usually just changing/adding backing plates & drums and run some wires and a back up battery . Most trucks are already wired to accept a brake controller .

Surge brakes have that funny feel, that I never cared for, like getting hit in the rear when you are stopping. also there was some confusion about how legal surge brakes were this site should clear that up.
