Jane Let me tell you a story: In 2006 with a new Chevy Suburban and 16' Scamp
and with 5 grandkids with us, we went 5000 miles around the western states not long after i got the used Scamp
. At the time, I never heard of a brake controller and never had an issue but a Suburban is a pretty big vehicle. When i got my Casita
, I immediately noticed it being harder to stop and did a little research. Low and behold they made these things called brake controllers! Helps a bunch. I suppose what I am saying is that if you have a large vehicle and are willing to go slow and very careful, you could PROBABLY get by with it.
Oh and the lights
all worked fine since it was plugged into the 7 pin socket. A 7 to 4 conversion would've done the same.
