Kia Sportage: Trailer towing / Trailer brakes

Kia Sportage QL (2015-2019) Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Trailer towing / Trailer brakes

If your trailer is equipped with a braking system, make sure it conforms to your state’s regulations and that it is properly installed and operating correctly.

If your trailer weight exceeds the maximum allowed weight without trailer brakes, then the trailer will also require its own brakes as well. Be sure to read and follow the instructions for the trailer brakes so you’ll be able to install, adjust and maintain them properly.
