I bought the ETBC7 kit it came with everything but instructions in the box, but on E-trailer .com
there are instructions that anyone can print out with pictures even.

I found that a bit late but all worked out good.

Put a new battery in it. The previous owner must have put a smaller, cheapie battery in it before trading it in. It was starting to have trouble cranking now that the weather is cold.
Now I have one that's the right size and has 200 more CCA.

pop up trailer that has trailer brakes on it, when going up into the mountains not a problem it's the coming down can be the hard part..

the mountains out here are 6-12 thousand feet above sea level
plus I travel into Nevada and might be going to PA this spriong with the trailer and some states req. it.
here is a list of states and the trailer brake laws
