We usually pull our Jeep Wrangler behind our 40' Diesel Motorhome, but on this trip to Florida from Michigan, we will be pulling our brand new 7' X 14' dual axle enclosed utility trailer. It has electric brakes, and our motorhome came installed with a Reese Brakeman Compact brake controller.
We rely on the exhaust brake in the motorhome much of the time, of course, to save on our brakes. Does this also activate the brakes on the utility trailer? Or do we have to actually apply our brakes in the motorhome to activate the electric brakes on the trailer? How should we set the brake controller? We used to use controllers in our truck back in the days when we towed a travel trailer, but have never used it in the motorhome.
