electric brakes cable routing danger
I just brought my new R-POD home. I love it. BUT, as I crawled under the frame to check things out I noticed what I consider an accident waiting to happen. The electric brake wiring on both sides, instead of being tucked safely above the axle, was routed down and under the axle. one side was actually tyewrapped under and across a 1/4 " plate mounting bracket. Needless to say, any contact with an object on or off road would result in a cut or snagged wire and loss of one or both trailer brakes. I have to question the logic in running the wires this way as it would have been just as easy to do it right. I didn't have the proper crimp connectors or crimper to make the corrections, so I tyewrapped the wires as high and out of the way as I could. I will take the unit back to the dealer and have them correct this when I get the chance.
THIS IS SOMETHING NEW OWNERS SHOULD CHECK.
