Default Electric trailer brake in new Ford SD

Has anyone had any experience with the factory installed electric trailer brake in the 08 SD? Does it work well with the electric over hydrolic trailer brakes?

Thanks!

Doesn't work with Electic over Hydrolic, only all electric. If you hit the brakes pretty hard you will notice a little braking from the trailer. I was a little let down when we first found out.

It will work with electric over hydraulic, you need to install a brake module from carlisle. It is called a HBA-Cam controller will cost around $100.
I installed one on my manning trailer and it works like a dream and the factory brake controller is sweet.

Depends on the model of E/H actuator. BrakeRite tested theirs on the 05-07 & 08 models without any issues, per their tech support people.

Works well with my Ausco on my Extreme Trailer.

Where did you purchase it from. It sounds like you add this to your trailer, is that correct.

Yes I did add it to the trailer to make it work with the Ford controller. Follow the link above.

Default 382 w brake rite

Works great with Tow Command. You will be really pleased with the way the trailer is controlled. As good as air brakes !! Mine will slide all the tires with the boat on the trailer if it is set too high !! Thats stopping power
