It most likely will have pure electric(well electromagnetic/mechanical if you want to get real technical ), activated by a controller in the towing vehicle.

I'm with you on the electric brakes. I just took posession o a 1973 31'
Excella. I put a Tekonsha prodigy and read that there would be problems with the hydraulics. I'm putting in new axles and will replace brakes bearing, etc at the sme time.

Now the search is on for the best axles.
