Voltage regulator for trailer brakes Answered
Im planning on building a motorized trailer dolly for my travel trailer, however i want to make a dead mans switch for the trailer brakes.
I was wondering if I took apart an old cordless drill if I could use the trigger as a voltage regulator to regulate the voltage to the trailer brake system. Without getting into specifics of how it will connect to the regulator, I figure I would have like a bike brake handle that while applied the trailer brakes would be off, but if released that the trailer brakes would be applied incase the trailer started to roll away from you.
Any suggestions other than "Go buy a trailer brake controller" would be appreciated! :)
