We used a tattle tale system that would create a red light every time the BB was activated and stayed on as long as it was activated.put it right in the middle of the dash in front of the steering wheel. Could not miss it. Tested each time we started.

We've been using the same one for 21 years. Towed Jeeps, a Colorado and for the last 10 years a Silverado. It's been back to the factory twice ($200+-) with about a week turn-a -round.


Ed We have (I think) Classic or similar, I have blocked between the driver seat and the unit but still it gets loose.
I really cannot tell if the thing releases or not by looking at the device that sits on the dash in front of me.
I have about given up on even using it.
If not too much effort on your part, please tell me steps you go through to make sure the BB is installed and working correctly (ie releasing when it is supposed to) Thanks in advance
