They work like a solenoid, just think of it as a starter solenoid.best way to test would be disconnecting them one at a time and going through what you did before.

Ok thank you. I'm sure I will get it figured out. I hope it's something obvious. Camper is only a year old cant imagine its something to major.

Is your truck new and your camper one you have been pulling with another TV? From your post it sounds like you bought a new truck and installed a P3. Is this right? If so, you must have been pulling your camper with another TV without a problem. Could it be you have a P3 defective out of the box? It does happen....

Yes you are exactly right. I had a Nissan Titan before and a different TBC. With my tundra I bought a new P3 for it.

I kind of thought this maybe because I didn't have a problem before but my old tbc is nothing like this P3 I just figured the diagnostics this P3 has showed me I had a problem or that I was applying to much force to the brakes.

I will tell you one other thing. When I was trying to do the first set up to turn it up till the brakes lock up then back it down. Well from my first initial set up I tried this and I could feel the brakes lock up hard and then they would completely cut out and it would give me the message. Could one magnet bad cause that to happen. It seemed odd to me.

Maybe one brake but not all brakes. You said you had a pigtail made up? Did your Tundra have the tow package and the 7 pin connector already installed and all you had to do is plug the P3 harness into the under dash connector?

The blue wire goes to all brakes. Checkout this diagram from e-trailer. http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx
It just seems strange your problem began with new truck and new controller. Maybe you need to suspect the controller or the wiring harness
