I had Morryde install the discs on my new Redwood when they did the IS.

I had nothing but problems with the system, Brian and Morryde was an awesome help, but his hands were tied for a good bit..

First Kodiak blamed Ford... Ford said they had nothing to do with it, My local tech was telling me he though it was the Hydrastar...

I took it to the tech and Morryde had them change the calipers and all the brake lines thinking I had a hydraulic issue, that didnt work... finally my tech told me he really thought it was the Hydrastar, so we pulled that off and replaced it with a Brakerite.. the problem went away ! We sent the Hydrastar back for evaulation, and received a check in full for the replacement and labor.

ENd of the story was it was the Hydrastar all along, and the discs are freakin awesome with the brakerite..

Titan = BrakeRite. I am very happy with my Titan BrakeRite connected to a Prodigy P3. Others (my thread again) are very happy with a similar setup using a Ford controller set up to Med or High aggressiveness.

Could have been defective in some way. My Hydrastar has been perfect.

The new trailer should have a warranty. The wildcard is the dealer expertise to find the issue.

I did my own install with a kit from Disc Kit and have had no issues. Their kit includes wiring, brake lines, pump and everything you need to include clips to secure the lines, the instructions are very clear as to what needs done. The only thing you need is grease & brake fluid.

Problem fixed!! It turns out the problem was air in the FW brake lines. After bleeding the brakes, they now work fine. It took a long time to finally track down the problems because the RV dealer here in Hammond claimed they had bled the brakes earlier. so I looked for other fixes. They must have not done so or did not do it correctly.

Thanks for all of the replies.

Perfect example of why you should start with the basics.

My Motorcycle wouldn't start. A friend asked if I checked the battery connections. I said previous owner had recently installed a new battery. He gave me the LOOK. I checked and sure enough the bolts were loose.
