Electric brake control??

Hello we own a 2008 Forest River Berkshire and getting ready to pull an enclosed trailer behind it. We found there is no power to the brake terminal in the rear trailer plug. My question is, does this coach have an electric brake control or does one have to be added? Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so any help is greatly appreciated. THANK U THANK U

If there is no power to the plug, you'll have to add a braking system to the trailer, if you want one.

A lot of coaches come with a wiring harness under the dash that will allow you to install a brake controller. Contact Forest River and they should be able to provide you with the information.

Pretty sure you need to add a controller.
