Dodge Charger: Towing Requirements / Towing Requirements — Trailer Brakes

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / STARTING AND OPERATING / TRAILER TOWING / Towing Requirements / Towing Requirements — Trailer Brakes

  • Do not interconnect the hydraulic brake system or vacuum system of your vehicle with that of the trailer. This could cause inad- equate braking and possible personal injury.
  • An electronically actuated trailer brake controller is required when towing a trailer with electronically actuated brakes. When towing a trailer equipped with a hydraulic surge actuated brake system, an electronic brake controller is not required.
  • Trailer brakes are recommended for trailers over 1,000 lb (453 kg) and required for trailers in excess of 2,000 lb (907 kg).

WARNING!

Do not connect trailer brakes to your vehicle's hydraulic brake lines. It can over- load your brake system and cause it to fail. You might not have brakes when you need them and could have an accident.

Towing any trailer will increase your stop- ping distance. When towing, you should allow for additional space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Failure to do so could result in an accident.

CAUTION!

If the trailer weighs more than 1,000 lb (453 kg) loaded, it should have its own brakes and they should be of adequate capacity. Failure to do this could lead to accelerated brake lining wear, higher brake pedal effort, and longer stopping distances.
