    I would go back to the person that did the installation. Sounds like the brake wire might not be in the right place or disconnected.

    riverhunter: Just a little suggestion. Make sure you check the plugs on a regular basis if you let the unit sit for a while. The brass connections can corrode and then they don't make a good contact either. There are lubes on the market that will help you keep them clean. Whenever I put a plug on a trailer or vehicle I solder the ends of the wires before putting them in the connection. Cuts down a little on the corrosion inside the plug and makes for a better fit. I never use quick connects cause the corrode in a hurry if exposed to moisture.

    Just some little hints I hope help you enjoy your new adventure.

    Have a great trip.
    :)
