Default towing

I have an 09 sport crew. I have been towing with it since day one. For some reason the brakes don't work with the trailer anymore. I had the trailer looked at and the brakes work on the the trail but when its attached to the truck nothing happens. Is there a fuse on the truck or do you think that my trail brake controller is broken. When I push the brake button on the controller it tells me there is nothing connected to it. Any help would be great.

Thanks

It is possible there is a problem with your BC, but it is more likely there is a bad connection. Looking for a bad fuse is worth a start. Then I would spray some electric contact cleaner into both connections (trailer & truck sides) and maybe some mechanical means to scrape the contacts. If that does not solve the problem a multimeter will come in handy to look for a broken or compromised wire in the trailer or the truck. If all wires test functional, likely the BC may have gone bad, but also make sure you still have a sound connection at the BC.
