Wiring The Trailer Not The Tv?

I have a 2006 19' bambi. I have two TV one a 3/4 ton Dodge pu and the other a 2006 Escalade. I want to wire the AS with a electric brake modulator
with its own dedicated battery so i do not have to wire two TV.Has anyone done this? We do this all the time in our rental yard for Bobcat trailers for customers who do not have brake controllers. The system uses a programmer out of the 12v accesory port on the dash to set the gain and thats it. Any information on this appriciated. Thanks,Jeffrho

First impression that does not sound like a good idea. Even given the fact that you have a small trailer.

If you are setting the gain for the trailer at the module on the trailer you have no way to modulate the trailer brake application power once set. Most brake controllers have some means of modulating the trailer brakes either through a pendulum, program, or mechanical system. In the absence of a modulating system you only have ONE brake setting. If that is set for slow speed you will have little or no brakes at high speed. If it is set for high speed you will most likely lock the brakes at slow speed.
