As an alternative to the traditional hardwiring of towed vehicles, the Innovator brake control from Innovative Electronics Inc. mounts directly on electric brake trailers, offering wireless operation and the flexibility for the trailer to be pulled by any vehicle with towing capabilities. The brake control unit mounts either to the existing jack plate or directly to the frame of any one-, two- or three-axle trailer, says Innovative. Once the connections are made, the operator sets the load with the wireless transmitter, which automatically establishes its own signal with the control unit. If the trailer's battery power itself is low, the unit will automatically turn itself off, so as not to drain the voltage.
