Guidance on testing commercial trailers:
The way to use a decelerometer is to first test the drawing vehicle on its own. Then connect the trailer and the deceleration rate should be similar i.e. the trailer is doing its fair share of work. This is not an exact science but would be enough to give you confidence that the trailer brakes were working.
Furthermore the simple practice of checking trailer disc or drum temperatures using an Infra Red Thermometer to test individual wheel efficiency on a trailer. VOSA/DVSA use infra red thermometers at road side checks as a way of testing individual brake performance.
