Are Trailer Brake Magnets Polarity Sensitive

Question:

Are the magnets polarity sensitive?

Expert Reply:

Trailer electric brake magnets are non-polarized. When installing an electric brake assembly, like the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, Left Hand # AKEBRK-35L, either wire can be used for the brake signal and the ground wire, it will not matter which wire is used for which.

I've attached a review video of this brake assembly. At the end of the review video, it is mentioned that either of the green wires can be used for either function.

For the corresponding Right Hand Electric Trailer Brake Assembly you will want part # AKEBRK-35R.
