Any towed trailer or caravan that weighs 1000kg or more must be fitted with independent brakes, with electric brakes being the most common.
To operate, electric brakes require an electric current from a brake controller mounted in your car. Normally connected to the stop lights from the switch at the brake pedal, the brake controller senses when you’ve depressed the brake pedal. This sends a signal to the towed trailer or caravan which activates a magnet to apply the brakes.
It’s important to check the operation of trailer and caravan electric brakes regularly, especially before long trips. Every 6mths is a good interval for most recreational trailers if you tow frequently tow heavy loads it should, of course, be done more often.
