IMHO, car + scamp = trailer brakes
, period. I lost brakes on my empty 2,000# car trailer behind my pickup and it was obvious it was back there. Not dangerous under normal conditions, but obvious. I was glad to get home without somebody doing something stupid in front of me.
I had a guy try to cross the road I was on, but he couldn't make it across due to traffic going the other direction, so he just stopped and blocked both lanes on my side. It was a miracle I missed him, I stopped inches from his drivers door. The guy next to me just crushed the side of his pickup bed in. I was damn happy I had good brakes on the scamp. Going full manual on the brake controller while driving down the road will put your head in the windshield.
