RE: Power voltage to brakes??

Different issue but I have another question. Testing voltage at the truck battery while at idle I get a reading of over 14 volts. At the trailer plug the “battery” test at about 12.3! Normal?? Is this why after a day of driving the house batteries have gained nothing much at all ?

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

That will be my first step. Replacing all the wires.

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

Where did you mount it. Can you reach it comfortably. I like to use it manually if ever on ice.

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

Thanks. I had hoped that by soldering all connections at both ends of both axels I would get better results but if any it was only slight. I did hook up to my much lighter goose neck flat deck and by pulling the brake lever the tires stand. So. Would you recommend an aftermarket controller because of the weight of the trailer. Where good response trailer brakes becomes very necessary is when descending a long grade in icy and snowy conditions.

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

Ok Here’s what I now know and can report. I have learned that my Ram will not provide full brake voltage standing still. It’s smart. There is also a setting on the Ram to adjust that voltage response on the touch screen. Two options “ “light towing” or “heavy”. My has always been on light. Learned this on a Cummins forum.

RE: Single screw on dump valve won’t…

I have forgotten how to post a picture! I think I had an app in my old iPad??

RE: Single screw on dump valve won’t…

No such clamp is on my valve and never was as I replaced it all two years ago. What I did now was fasten a small hose clamp to the cable and tightened a tarp strap to the cable to help hold with tension to counter the force that wants to push the cable out of its holder when shutting the valve. I’ll try to post a picture.

The single screw that is suppose to grip the outer cover of the cable and hold it tears away and then the valve won’t shut. What can a guy to to ensure it holds it?

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

Ok. Just Cut the power wires to the first axle there I had 12 1/2 V. As soon as I hook up the brakes to the front axle only it dropped to 10 1/2 when I hook up the rear axle to the furthest away wheel I’m still at 9 V. I’ll do a road test next and see if all new brake assembly’s has improved my breaking. So glad I have an engine brake on the ram.

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

The trailer is a 34 footer and around 12,500 pound. Couldn’t get at it today but tomorrow I will start by testing my battery voltage under the load of full braking. If it is good I will then cut the wires where they first appear under the belly at the first axel and test the voltage there. The brakes two wires are encased inside there own grey coating and appear to be in a loom right to where they emerge under the belly. We will report tomorrow. Thanks for all your comments

RE: Power voltage to brakes??

I pulled the breakaway pin to test off house batteries and gained a volt. 10 volts.

Power voltage to brakes??

Never been happy with braking on our C Creek. Just installing all new brake assemblies and checked voltage at right rear and it shows only 9.5 volts!! This is not via the truck. I have it connected directly to a tested 12.6 volt battery . Should I see that kind of a drop from the battery?

When did the testing for viruses in the sewer start? Id bet that had they been using the same testing technology 4 years ago on the sewer they would have produced alarming results. More chicken littleism.

RE: New awning issue

I realize backing it in a 1/2 turn does the trick. That too reduces the pitch considerably.

New awning issue

Dealer installed a complete new awning for us. I wonder if something is not quite right with it. When the awning is extended all out, and from the rear of the trailer perspective, the fabric attaches at about the 9:30/10 o’clock position and the flap that is to hang is attached at the 2 o’clock position. This makes for a trough for water to pool. Which then drips all along the inside of the roller. The old one did not do this. Is it properly installed??

Grungy rounded rubber roof edge! Paint?

Is there a paint one could use on that top visible edge? Just doesn’t clean up white any more.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Dropped by today for the first time in a long time. Pretty much left because of snarky answers t my questions but mostly because of heavy handed censorship. When I see moderators censor comments of people they just disagree with I’m reminded of that old truth…”where everyone thinks the same no one thinks very much!”

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

The converter is a WFCO 55 amp. I’m sure it’s original In a 2009 Cedar Creek. Seems to me this converter will not start to even charge if the temps are really low.

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

I asked 2 questions but have 1 more. Are they compatible with any “converter”?

AGM Deep Cycle batteries

My flooded batteries are toast in the trailer. I have been buying AGM starting batteries for boat and truck and like them. No maintenance and no corrosion. Thinking of going to two. 6 Volt AGM batteries for the trailer. Would this be a good choice? How do they handle freezing temperatures?
