no amount of brake force is going to help on ice

I agree, I like the factory TBC, especially already linked to the brake booster and brake lights (a circuit that I tied into that would cancel cruise control), but the minimum speed is annoying. My big thing is hill starts, my clutch has had some unnecessary wear when getting the trailer moving up an incline. I'm either having to slip the clutch before releasing the brake, or use the clutch to counter the roll. Neither of which are kind to a pressure plate.

Is it possible to add an aftermarket controller and still have the factory TBC operational?

People never have enough time/money to do the job right, but somehow they always find the time/money to do it twice

trailer brakes applied no truck brakes applied have saved many a truck driver

at speed absolutely, campground I would just use low range, take advantage of the VGT in tow/haul

I've seen a plenty of smoked trailer brakes/truck brakes from campers coming off pikes peak after the hill climb, use of engine braking goes a long way as well

Are you trying to say there is no reason why you would ever need to use trailer brakes while going slower than 15mph? I can think of multiple situations where they could save your bacon.

below a certain mile an hour I believe my controller drops off as well, not 100% positive

depends on the mud/gravel

if you're falling on your azz walking down it, you're probably not gonna have much better luck with a truck/trailer unless there is hard pack underneath

Of course you are going to have better luck if the trailer has brakes on it to stop itself vs. relying on the truck to stop the trailer...... that's the whole point of having brakes on a trailer.
