[RC] Trailer brakes-disasterous - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Ray O'Donohue rno2m@xxxxxxxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

 The sad fact is that for many different reasons,about half the horse trailers 
going down the highway have bad trailer brakes.The amperage load is fairly 
high,yet the wiring is almost never properly done on the trailer,or the 
truck.When one strips wire for a repair and sees green or black stuff way up in 
the wire,that wire has been HOT,due to too high resistance in crummy 
connections or in the wire itself (too small gauge wire). I FINALLY have good 
trailer brakes on my rig,and the difference is amazing.The new single 
adjustment Hoppy brand controler is very good.
