While towing today, a warning message came on my TV saying that the trailer brake control wiring was disconnected. I stopped the Truck, checked all connections and determined that everything was set up properly, nothing had shifted . For the next 100 miles, the wiring would intermittently connect and disconnect according to the TV status display. Each time the status read that it was disconnected I would get the same warning message, and one time the message was to "service the trailer brake system". When the system disconnected, I would lose the trailer brakes completely, but it would always reconnect itself. Wondering if I have a short, split a wire inside the harness, loose connections or what???
Any idea what is going on here and what I need to do about it?
If it helps, my TV is a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 and TT is a 2012 Kodiak 284BHSL.
Any help would be great.
I purchased the ProPride a few months ago and installed it myself (just like everyone else does). If you give yourself a few hours on a nice sunny day, you'll have no problems installing one yourself. I am one of those regular guy's as well and pretty much all thumbs when it comes to anything mechanical. The installation is VERY easy.
I've pulled with mine three times now for a total of about 1000 miles. The hitch does exactly what they promise...it completely eliminates trailer sway. When you get passed by a Semi or you get a very strong gust of wind, you will experience some movement to the side, but it is very controlled.
I would strongly recommend calling Sean at Propride. He will match the reduced price for a Used Hensley and will send you a brand new product.
