trailer brakes not working! what to check?

ok since im bored at work and im gonna be hooking up to my trailer tomorrow i thought i would ask you guys what to do/ check tonight..

truck
2002 F350 6 speed

i bought the truck with a controller already in it. has not worked since i bought the truck. 2 weeks ago lol

what are some things to check or test or to look for? i have another controller at the house. i could just tap into the ol wires and check that way to eliminate the controller.

the lights and signals work fine on the trailer just no brakes.

thanks guys!

Why not do the obvious and swap brake controllers?
