Peter got under the pup tonight and we definitely have brakes (drum brakes he says). This gives me tremendous relief b/c I feel safer knowing we could stop the pop up, being that we are towing with a 2 dr. wrangler... We deliberately bought something with a GVWR of 1750 to be below the 2000 lb rating on the jeep. We intend to pack VERY LIGHT! If we need to bring more stuff at some point, we'll outfit the Honda Odyssey for towing. Or eventually we'll buy a 3rd vehicle with more towing capacity. We have the 4-prong connecter on both the trailer and the TV. Peter says we need to get 6 (or 7?) connecters installed on both. Is this something he could do himself? he's fairly handy. He is hesitant b/c its a safety thing and he thinks professionals should do it. Also, once those are installed, we'll also need to to operate them from the TV, right? there is some kind of controller thingie?? Do you purchase those specifically for the TV or are they universal? And should we have professionals check the brakes anyway, since it doesn't appear that the previous owners used them at all????
