 trailer brake controllers

Switching tow vehicles and old hydraulic activated plumbing doesn't fit. How do you guys like inertia activated electric brake controllers? I heard they activate when backing up on rough terrain. Is this true and is it a big deal? And what brand is best? Tekonsha? Kelsy-hayes? thanks

Steve, I've had both Kelsey-Hayes and Tekonsha in years past, but haven't kept up with the market the last few years, so there may be newer and better available, but I really liked the Tekonsha myself. It was the best I ever used and I couldn't find a thing to dislike about it. And no, it never engaged while backing.

Steve-
I have a Kelsey-Hayes (made by Tekonsha) and an earlier Tekonsha Commander. No problems with either. If you do have a problem with the brakes coming on when the're not wanted, I would think you could adjust that out by decreasing the sensitivity. -Stan
