You can, I believe. No experience with that brand or any other though.

Depends on what kind of trailer you have; my '98 Mastercraft single-axle trailer has UFP brake hardware http://www.ufpnet.com/. They have an optional backup solenoid, but they say something about having to change out the master cylinder if you want to add it on.

No help here at all.
Come on guys you disappoint sometimes.

Am I the only on that would like to be able to put the car in reverse and not half to worry about putting the pin in the trailer from keeping the breaks from locking up.

Or on the other hand keeping the pin in, cause it always seems to fall out at the most in-op times.

Someone has to no something about these products

If I ever fix the brakes on my trailer, yes - I would like to. But - since they don't work anyway now, I don't have a problem yet (hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, therefore, evil doesn't exist):steering:
