Brake Controller

I just saw a new term today. BRAKE CONTROLLER.

I can almost figure out what it does but.....
Does it go on the truck or the trailer and do I even need one?

Thanks in advance

What kind of truck do you tow with? It may already have a controller in it. The RV has electric drum brakes so they need to be activated somehow, if you want to stop that is.

yes, stopping can be a good thing at times.
I will have to talk to my mechanic about that.
I am actively looking for truck now and dont have one yet.
The 5er will be ready Friday. If I dont find a decent used truck before then, I'll hire someone from the dealership to deliver it for me.
