Trailer brakes

I'm tired of constantly messing with my trailer brakes because they quit working.Half the time they don't work at all and the other half they are vague. I've got an exhaust brake ready to install but want the brakes to be better. The trailer is an 04 Titan 33' tandem dually.
Question is how expensive would it be to convert to electric over hydrolic and get rid of the wiring issues.
Is there other alternatives?
