So the day finally came for us to pick up our first RV. Raining buckets of course!
Went to the dealer and got hitched up no problem. Since this was our first tow, we took someone from the dealer and headed around the block. All was well until I got a trailer brake warning on the DIC of my truck...then the service trailer brake message. Ugh!
We stopped and the smoke caught up with us.
Can you friggin believe it? The trailer deadman switch had pulled out!
When the rig made a tight turn, there was enough redundancy in the cable that allowed it to loop under the foot of the 5th wheel hitch and pull out when the rig straightened out after the turn.
Talk about bedding in the brakes!
Started the truck 2 times and the code cleared and we had no other mechanical issues.
Made a one million point back in to get it into the space in front of the house
Home safely and fired up the furnace and all the other electrics...everything ok.
Some must watch while others must sleep
