I'm not sure about if your electric trailer brakes will activate, I doubt they will, but for a 2,000 lb trailer I wouldn't worry about it. You don't need additional brakes if you have 1,500 lb in the bed, so why would you need them with 2,000 lb on a hitch? I've towed heavier loads than that with my truck without issue (just use common sense, don't tailgate, and give yourself room to stop...pay attention). Sure you won't stop as fast as if you had the trailer brakes, but I wouldn't say your braking will be under powered.
