Draw-Tite 5504 Details

Activator Electronic Brake Controls for trailers with electric brakes apply the trailer’s brake electronically as soon as the brake pedal is engaged, unlike pendulum models which react to inertia created after the tow vehicle’s brakes have already begun to stop.

The amount of braking power (output) and rate of application (sync) are both adjustable for the individual driver’s preference, road conditions, type of trailer and load. The driver can control the amount and rate of braking from soft to aggressive and the brakes can be manually applied.


  • 1 to 4 axle trailers
  • Digital output indicator
  • Up-front push buttons for Sync and Output
  • Diagnostics for Overload, Open Ground
  • Short Circuit Protected
  • "Plug-N-Play" port
  • Mounts in any position
  • No leveling required
  • Mounting hardware included
  • Smooth and simple installation
  • Lifetime limited warranty

 Works with 2-Plug brake control wiring adapters.
