    Hi! I have a black rectangular box located within the wires, between my battery and my trailer. All of the wires enter and exit it. I tried to attach a picture, but apparently the picture is too large to upload. What is it? And what is it’s purpose? I have a Rockwood Freedom Premier 2514G. Thank you!

    Without a picture, your description sounds like the electric emergency brake box. There should be a black or red plastic rod in one end of the box with a hole in the rod. This rod should be connected to a cable that connects to your hitch or vehicle. In the event the trailer comes unhooked, the cable pulls the rod and activates the trailers emergency braking system through the wires connected to the battery and the brakes.

    Can't help you with from your description. However if you download an app called resize or something similar, you can resize the photo you took so you can upload it here.

    Sounds like a junction box. Have you opened it?

    It is not the emergency brake. That I do know. This one is different and almost looks like a junction box as all the wires enter and exit from it. But no, I haven’t opened it because I can’t seem to get it to come apart. I will try again to upload a picture.

    That is just where the trailer plug wires meet the trailer wires. No need to take it apart

    Handy little place for testing voltages if you have troubles. Just pull apart a little and you can get at all the connections with a meter.

    I assume this is some sort of pigtail that was added to change the 6 way 'square' connector to either 4 flat or standard 7 blade at the front of the trailer.

    something like
    Item Number: 40047 or Item Number: 30041
