Cargo Trailer, Utility Trailers, Landscape Trailers, Boat Trailers - How to Identify if Electric Brakes are Present on the Loss Vehicle.
All Trailers will be Equipped with Some Type of Tail Light System (Assuming they are Road Legal). There are 2 Types of Common Wiring Plugs on Trailers, the 7-Way Plug and the 4-Way Plug. 7 Way Plugs are Almost Always a Sign that Electric Brakes are Present (Or Optional, due to the Mandatory Wiring Needed by 7 Wires to Activate the Brakes). If the LV or the Comps have a 4-Way Plug (Shown Below) - There will Not be any Electric Brakes Present. Lightweight Trailers used for Landscaping and Single Axle Cargo Trailers Commonly will not have Electric Brakes.
When the 7-Way Plug is Present, please be aware of the possibility of a Breakaway System.
