Hi All.

I did a search but I'm not coming up with much. My question is in regards to the trailer brakes and the uConnect stereo.

I have a 2018 2500 Tradesman. I hate my UConnect stereo and want to upgrade it to an aftermarket system. I am worried that I will lose my connectivity with my OEM trailer brakes because I noticed that you can save the Trailering profiles on the UCOnnect stereo. Are trailer braked fully dependent on the UConnect stereo?

Soooo.. If I replace the head unit, will I need to replace the OEM trailer brakes too... or do I just lose the ability to save the trailering profile?

Thanks in advance.

You would think it is not tied into the radio for safety reasons. Driving at 70MPH towing heavy and needing to brake hard and the radio craps out or a fuse is blown, trailer braking lost, not good. Just thinking.
