Trailer brakes

Trailer brakes  - Trailer towing - Tires, Wheels and Loading - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

Be sure your trailer conforms to all applicable local and Federal regulations regarding trailer braking. If your trailer is equipped with electronically-controlled brakes you will need to have an electronic brake controller with associated wiring installed to your vehicle by an authorized dealer.

WARNING: Do not connect a trailers hydraulic brake system directly to your vehicles brake system. Your vehicle may not have enough braking power and your chances of having a collision greatly increase.

The braking system of the tow vehicle is rated for operation at the GVWR not GCWR.
