Hate to hear this, and we are here to try to help. Can you give us more details on exactly what brake failure you are experiencing as this can be caused from anything from your tow vehicles brake controller all the way back to the brakes on the trailer axles themselves?

Lots of things to check. Is there voltage on the 7 pin connection ( brake pin) when the brake is applied? If so check for a broken wire between connector and the brake magnets. If OK, look fr a short ( bare wire hitting frame). Do you have integrated or aftermarket controller.

I saw someone next to us at campground once that was ready to leave and the trailer brakes were locked up. Turned out he had the trailer plug turned 180 degrees. Plugged in correctly and then was ok.

You saying the trailer seams to have no brakes? Did you/can you manually apply the trailer brakes?

Check brakes with manual control while moving slowly. See if you have any at all.

Many manufacturers use wire nuts to make the electrical connections on/near the brakes. They can corrode or come loose. Follow the brake wire back to the axle and check the connections including the ground. While under there, I would undo, clean and redo all the brake connections.

Make sure it's plugged in to the truck. Pull the plug out and the install the plug the trailer connector back in. Sometimes when I turn real sharp, then I get the same message, check brakes
