    Integrated Trailer Brake Controller.

    When towing my 2500rl trailer with my 2021 Ford F-150 Platinum with Max Towing, which should I choose "Electromagnetic Drum Brake System" OR "Electrically Actuated Hydraulic Brakes" for the trailer system?
    This decide how I set up my Integrated trailer brake controller.

    HELP!!
    Thanks in advance

    If you have the Ford factory brake controller you can set up multiple trailer profiles. When you connect the trailer you get to chose which trailer is connected and the proper brake system will be selected.

    I put Hydraulic Disc brakes on my a reflection so I set up one profile with Electro Hydraulic for my 5th wheel and another profile with electromagnet if I need to tow a trailer with electric brakes. When you plug the trailer in it gives me a choice of which trailer to choose.
