Emergency Brake pull on 20 Ft enclosed trailer

Hello all,

We tow a 20 Ft trailer behind our motor home with our Polaris RZR side x side inside. On one trip when I was hooking up the trailer, I left the emergency brake pull out off. I didn't feel any resistance while towing, but there is a noticible squeak from the trailer brake controller when I apply the motor home brakes towing or not now. Could I have worn down the brakes on the trailer and the squeak is the warning? But if that is the case there shouldn't be a squeak coming form the controller while not towing. There is no squeak when pressing the brake pedal when the motor home is not running. Only after I start it up.

To clarify... are you referring to a break-away cable? If so the brakes are not applied unless the "pin" is removed from the socket on the trailer. If you simply didn't hook up the wire rope/cable at the back of the vehicle but had the "pin" in the socket then the brakes would not have been applied.

I removed the pin in order to attach it to my motor home. I apparently got distracted and left the pin completely out. I discovered it once we returned from the trip and saw it laying on the ground where I left it.
