roll a home

purchased a roll a home camper, it has electric brakes on the camper, the wiring plug is a flat 5 wire plug which i converted my round 5 wire on my bike to a flat 5 wire the wiring on the trailer also has a 2 pin connector for i believe is the trailer brake unit in the camper i believe i need to run a hot wire from my bike to that connector with a automatic reset breaker in line with the hot wire. i noticed on my bike trailer wiring there is a red heavy wire that runs with the other 5 wires, i think i can power up the trailer brakes with this wire as long as it has a auto reset breaker. was wondering if anyone else has a roll a home with electric brakes and how their wiring was set up and what there controller was set at. thanks for the info.

Are you sure you don't need a brake controller on the bike? Usually electric trailer brakes require a proportional voltage.

It would seem logical that the red extra wire would be 12Vpower to the brake controller. After you verify that is what it is for, putting the self reset breaker sounds like a good idea.

For my 12V to the trailer, I put a 12V relay that was activated by the accessory circuit and a fuse.

that is the same brake controller that I bought for my Suburban, I got the P3 instead of the P2, but they are the same technology.


works terrific!!!

For trailer brakes you need 2 extra wires to the trailer typically. Standard colors would be Red (+12 constant) and Blue (0V - 12V Variable brake control). The red would charge the breakaway battery. That trailer may not have one, its not big enough to require brakes.

His setup is not typical, the brake controller is in the trailer.

The trailer I had with brakes was set up this way and it worked marvelously. Once you have the gain set properly on the trailer it is muss, no fuss.

Gotcha, Never thought of that. You would still need a brake signal wouldn't you. If you use one of the lights, blinkers would make the brakes pulse.

Well yes,
but the trailer has brake lights, you just connect the controller to the brake light wire.
