REDARC Electronics — Tow-Pro Elite V2 Electric Trailer Brake Controller
What are the defects?
Where the installation has not been carried out in accordance with the product manual, using dedicated wiring from a single battery supply, there is potential at any time for no trailer brake output indicated by a flashing yellow/red warning lamp.
What are the hazards?
When towing, the braking distance of the tow vehicle and trailer may be increased and that could lead to a risk of a car accident.

Affected consumers should contact REDARC Electronics by calling 1800 733 272 or 08 8322 4848 (Monday to Friday, 8am - 5:30pm (ACDST)), or by email email@example.com to find the details of their nearest REDARC dealer/installer to change over the main control unit of the TowPro Elite V2 electric trailer brake controller, free of charge.
