Brake setups
#1
I have been trying to educate myself on trailers and have a couple of questions about brakes.

The recommendation is to have brakes on anything over 1500 pounds.

I am planning on towing a 4000+ trailer.

Does anyone have a breaking set up in their Frontier?

If so was it easy to install?

I'm assuming your talking about trailer brake controllers?


If so, I have one. A Tekonsha (forget model) controller. Install was easy, I took it from my dad's Titan and plugged it into mine, then he bought a new one Big Grin


But if your not lucky like me, you buy a universal controller (he got both ours off eBay) and a wiring 'pigtail' specific for Nissan. Basically you splice the controller wiring into a Nissan plug that plugs into the truck underneath the dash (driver's side, under steering wheel... near OBDII).

I found out that Titans and Frontiers use the same pigtail, so if you find a Titan one, it will work.

As for needing one.... YES! Especially a 4000+lb trailer. It's not even a luxury, it's essential.

Those are some nice Campers, Don't forget that when your Dear Wife loads up the Groceries and luggage into that puppy you will likely be over 5 Large in weight, not 4, personally, I like the quad rear wheel setup, won't destroy the trailer totally if one tire goes out. Happy Camping!
