All of our travel trailer and pop-up tent trailer rentals are equipped with electric brakes. California law requires the tow vehicle to be properly equipped when towing any trailer coach or camp trailer having a gross weight of 1500 lbs. or more. In order to rent a trailer brake controller from TowTally Camping your tow vehicle must already be equipped with a working 7 round flat pin standard rv plug and a functional 12 volt d/c connector in your tow vehicle. The tow vehicle auxiliary power and brake wiring must be connected. We have options available for rent, purchase, and install. Installs must be scheduled prior to arrival.
A Trailer brake controller is an aftermarket unit that is installed under your tow vehicle steering column. Many new vehicles are including the brake controller as factory installed item when including the tow package at purchase from the dealer. The trailer brake controller uses both wiring from the tow vehicle and trailer wiring that supplies power to the trailer’s electric brakes. The trailer brakes can then be applied using the vehicles brake pedal to help increase stopping safety. Towing your Trailer Safely
