“Without brakes on the trailer, the load is free to move anywhere it wishes unless something acts upon it. This exemplifies the Law of Inertia, popularly known as Newton’s First Law of Motion. In terms of towing, that something will be the tow vehicle. As mentioned in the story earlier, this is clearly a recipe for disaster.

Good electric trailer brakes exert its own force to counteract the force generated by stopping. Fifth-wheel trailers often use this system due to their weight. However, boat trailers can also put this system to use, especially for larger, heavier vessels. Coupled with safe driving practices, supplementary brakes from dealers like Champion Trailers can be a lifesaver on the road.”
