Electronic Sway Control

Hi All,

Just watched this video on the RV101 Youtube channel. It uses the electric brakes to handle sway control by applying different loads to each wheel depending on needs.

Several questions occur to me...
What is the power source?
Is it the TV brake signal?
That would be the simplest and IMHO best approach.
Of course this would require separate wiring to each side presumably after the box.
When the box fails will it default to stock braking mode or to no brakes?

Found a test of the thing:

Trailer Sway Control Revealed: Tuson trailer mounted system tested | TFLTruck.com: Truck News, Views & Reviews | The Fast Lane TruckTFLTruck.com: Truck News, Views & Reviews | The Fast Lane Truck

Looks like you keep the standard brake controller and wire this between the controller and drum brakes. It detects sway and attempts to compensate.
