I was trying to reason out if the battery on board the trailer sent any power to the brake system or are they all separate circuits fed by the truck.
Thanks for the info. There are a few different TTs we are considering and all are coming in around 500 plus or minus. One thing I have learned in researching is that the tongue weights posted by the manufacturer are, shall we say, optimistic. That's why I want the safety margin.
