Re: [RC] Trailer brakes-disasterous - DaNel Resha

When we got my trailer it had brakes on it.  When I finally got a truck to pull it with I had to go get the hook up installed on it.
I'm so glad I took both the truck and trailer to a trailer place when I got the hook ups on the truck.  It turned out that the plug on the trailer needed replacing along with a few of the lights.  They didn't charge me for the new bulbs but if I had not taken the trailer when I got home I would not of known about the trailer lights and breaks not working.

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.
