  1. We have a Brake Buddy for Sale. $400 with remote. We live in Arizona. imaginethatsr@gmail.com
  2. I put brand new brake assemblies, wheel bearings/races on my camper. I had better half hit the brake peddle before putting the newly turned brake drums back on. On both brakes, left side the magnet worked great, grabbed the screwdriver tight. Good, electro magnet works as advertised. Assembled left side including new LT tires. Right side, performed same routine. Only thing I noticed, both axles, the magnets also energized, good, but both had a buzz to them. I did not notice this on the left side. Any ideas why one side buzzes and the other does not? I looked at the wiring, each axle, ie front and back shared the same connection coming out of the camper so I would think if one side does it, so should the other side. Side to side, each pair of brakes are on the same wire. My reason for the completed change/re-do, the brakes/drums were a little worn, un-evenly. Also, when adjusting the brake controller in the cab going down the hiway, I noticed if I got too high on the numbers, the camper kinda oscillated fore/aft rapidly. I expected it to brake hard, but not shake us up. Is that normal when the adjustment is too high? We are planning to start using this camper in a few weeks, I'm just trying to get everything worked out before we start, rather do it in driveway than on hiway...LOL I expected it to need work done when we bout it, it is a 2002 model. Looks like new but is not new so picked it up willing to do necessary repairs. We plan on using this one for 2-3 years then sell/buy a new one when better half retires. :o)
  3. In the never ending debate between LGTs and HDTs, there was a reference some time ago to a blog by someone who experienced an absolute nightmare trying to survive a mountain grade in a pickup truck while pulling a fifth wheel. I remember they spent much of the afternoon part way down letting the brakes cool and then crept on down, finding out later that their brakes were completely destroyed. I'd like to pass this on to a newbie friend, but I haven't been able to find it, even though I've searched back over four years. I'm sure someone smarter than me can point the way.. TIA, Jay
  4. This showed up on the FMCA Forum yesterday: http://community.fmca.com/topic/11170-potential-safety-issue-with-thor-class-a-coaches/ The MH in the topic is a 45' tag axle 2015 Thor Tuscany 45AT. The problem is the frame is far to close the the brakes and is rubbing on the air brake actuator. Could cause the brake to fail. The original poster is concerned the problem may be on other Tuscany models.
  5. So for those of you who have Volvo's what electric braking systems have you bought for your trailers? On my Tundra I have a Prodigy electric braking system is a prodigy product? Is that what I am looking for on my semi?
