Brake Controllers Canberra

What is a Brake Controller?

If you’re towing a caravan, heavy trailer, or horse float with electric brakes, you’ll need to have a brake controller fitted to your vehicle.

A brake controller lets the trailer or caravans brake system know how much braking power is needed to stop.

This means, your trailer or caravan electric brake can take care of most of the braking power without relying solely on your vehicle to bring the caravan or trailer to a stop, or to slow down.

Do I need an electric or mechanical braking system?

If you’re towing heavier than 1 tonne you must have either a mechanical or electric braking system installed.

If you’re towing more than two (2) tonnes, you must have electric brakes fitted.

The experienced team of specialist fitters at Canberra Towbar Fitters can provide expert advice on your towing requirements and tailor a solution to your needs.
