State laws vary: you may very well legally tow a trailer weighing as much as 10,000 lbs without trailer brakes in some states. Frankly, that's a terrible idea, regardless of the legality. Other states have laws that require brakes on a trailer weighing only 1,000 lbs. If your trailer has electric brakes installed, the smartest, safest path is to make them operational. For that, you'll need a trailer brake controller. This black box either gradually applies the trailer brakes as you slow down, or actually senses the deceleration rate and proportionally increases the braking action. On most modern tow-rated vehicles, it's an easy wiring job, calling for nothing more than plugging into the wiring harness underdash and near the hitch.
Play safe, and avoid equipment tickets and, oh yeah, accidents, by installing a brake control system from CARiD.34.52
