Which electric brake controller?
When we got our 23IKSS last summer, the dealer installed a Voyager electric brake controller. I've often had problems with it at low (<10mph) speeds where the brakes would grab and the trailer tires would skid. Stop and go traffic is a perfect example of where I'd have problems. So I'd back off the controller a little and they'd be ok, but once I got back up to normal speed I'd have to readjust because it felt like the brakes were not doing enough. It was the one and only thing I didn't like about our setup.
I started looking into some other controllers to see if there was something better out there. During the search I found the online manual for my Voyager and discovered that I have been adjusting the wrong knob. One knob is for leveling the unit and the other controls the power. Well, I never knew there were two knobs and the one I've been fiddling with is the level knob. Good grief Charlie Brown!
The dealer explained how I should adjust it when we bought the camper, but I either misunderstood or he told me the wrong way. Once it comes out of storage next month, I will readjust and see if it is better. But now I'm also wondering if the Voyager is a good unit, or if I should just upgrade to something better. I want this to be a set it and forget it thing if possible.
So what controller do you have, and does it require frequent adjustments?
I live with fear every day, and sometimes she lets me go fishing.
