RE: Air brake problem

Don't quite understand what you are saying. I have the air brake connection from MH to toad. I really like it, but a couple of things to be careful about, if yours is like mine. Make sure that the air cylinder is properly connected to the brake pedal. Improper connection caused the warning light to come on several times for me, till I figured out what was wrong. Make sure the device is not upside down or it won't work right. Air hose not properly connected between MH and toad. No brakes at all on the toad. Instructions say to test the brakes after you connect for the day. This entails my wife pumping the brake pedal in the MH while I observe the action of the connection in the toad. A very smart thing to do each time you connect because you will stop a problem before it starts, or you get on the road and find it not working right. Oh, yes! Don't forget to hook the air hose to the cylinder after installing it in the toad. Brakes won't work if you forget this little detail. Like I said, I really like this braking device and other than operator error, it works great. Good luck.

RE: Fifth wheel Hitch troubleshooting

Just a thought...are you backing under the kingpin and then lowering it? Or are you backing into the kingpin, lowered so that your TV raises the 5er slightly when you back? I found that backing into the kingpin will cause the hitch to completely snap shut securely. Think about it...that is how truckers do it. I would back until the pin was about to engage, hook up my power connector and set the brake on the 5er, along with wheel chocks to hold it steady while engaging the kingpin. Hope this helps.
