I plan to tow an auto trailer through British Columbia with a 15 foot truck. Due to the weight of the loaded trailer (over 6160 lb) the province requires a braking system that can be activated independently of the towing vehicles brake pedal. Do you have anything like this? Thanks.

–chris H. 1/14/2016 5:07:12 AM

The U-Haul auto transport trailers are equipped with a surge brake system. Thank you for choosing U-Haul!

–Joseph 1/15/2016 3:59:42 PM

I have installed this brake controller and all works well, the E1 light only lights up when I press the brakes other than that there is no lights on the display. I hope this is what is supposed to happen, as I have not yet had a chance to test it with a trailer. However yesterday I came outside and my brake lights were on (car was off) , I looked the brake controller and it had an E1 on the display. I pressed the manual override button and the tails lights and the display turned off. Any thoughts as to why this could have happened?

–Kevin 5/14/2015 10:32:03 AM

Once installed your 13509 brake control will show "E1" on the digital display, this indicates that your trailer is not connected.

Please visit your local U-Haul center for an inspection and or possible replacement of the 13509 brake control.

On the 6-way round pin connector, the blue brake control wire can be attached to the post marked "S" or "A", testing the trailer connector for brake control pin location is required.

how to adjust brake cotrol 13509

–brian 3/25/2015 3:55:10 PM

Brian, our hitch pro writes:

"The power adjustment button on the front of the unit adjust power sent to the trailer. Pushing the negative "-" side decreases the power sent to the trailer. Pushing the positive "+" side increases power. Connect your trailer and test drive in an open area to set the level of power."
