I initially had a “professional” and I use that term very lightly, install a brake controller in a tow vehicle. I took it home, hooked up to the trailer and used the manual actuator in the driveway, it immediately blew three fuses. The idiot had hook it up to the cigarette lighter fuse wiring and obviously not tested it properly.
I took it back to prove there was a problem and basically get my money back. I installed it myself, and ran a designated power line to the battery. Make sure you keep the fuse as close to the battery as possible. Another tip is do not use a fuse but use a resettable circuit breaker, if a fuse blows it’s blown until you can stop that doesn’t help you with a brake controller. With a resettable circuit breaker once it cools off it resets itself and the brakes return.
