Surge disc brakes are a 5 flat, like most common flat 4 with an added prong = 5th wire activated by reverse lights to shut off brakes when backing. Most newer vehicles with tow package come with a 7 round which has a reverse wire in it, therefore, a 7 to 5 adapter is used, or you can wire a 5 flat. The 5th, going to reverse wiring is usually a light blue wire in your harness. Adapters can be purchase from us or found at local marine or hitch stores. Let us know before pick up or delivery if you need one.
Electric Brakes require a 7 pole round plug like most new vehicles come with for RVs. Also for trailers with EOH brakes, the towing vehicle needs to have a controller inside vehicle which can be purchased on Amazon for about $100.00
BC Canada, Trailer Brake Regulations-<-click for details:
"Where the licensed gross vehicle weight of the trailer exceeds 2,800kg (6160 lbs.), brakes with which a trailer is equiped shall be capable of being applied by the driver of the motor vehicle towing the trailer from his normal hydraulic seated position."
A surge brake does NOT meet this requirement. An Electric Brake Actuator is required for Electric over Hydraulic - (EOH) brakes. We can order them that way from the factory [cheapest option $850], install the kit ($1000) or sell the kit with the trailer for you to install.($1,350)
