Default trailer brake controller 2013 bad?

My OEM from the factory brake controller will work when you squeeze the tabs by hearing the clicking at the RV wheels. However, when applying the foot brake no clicking and of course NO RV brakes. Display shows that I can increase/decrease the the numbers so that part works. What should I be looking at?

Try a system reset, disconnect the battery negative cable for no less than 15 mins. No it won't mess up your radio presets.

Disconnecting and connecting the battery took care of the trailer brake problem. Lesson learned. Thanks
