Here’s an actual link... As you can see the brakes must be burnished in if they are going to work properly. I mentioned earlier if the camper was brought in on a semi trailer the brakes never got burnished in... if you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself I’m sure the Dealer can do this for you. Show them this information.

So based on that it looks like the dealer wasnt being a butthead anb the weird thing is I looked all over my paperwork from gulfstream and couldnt find that info anywhere and in fact before I posted the thread I looked all over the internet for info and found nothing.

In all my life and I am 77 years old and have bought many vehicles. I have never ever heard of brakes that do not work because they are not broken in. To me that is a company waiting for a law suit on them for not preparing the vehicle to be safe with good brakes right out of the dealership. A person that buys a new trailer or motor home is expecting good brakes from the start and if he/she got into an accident because of no brakes because of a glaze as somebody described calls for a multi million dollar law suit.

It's actually pretty normal, even with cars ... For cars, the repair shop will do a test drive and break in new rotors/drums and pads during that (so a typical owner would never know this is needed).

See Step 17.

Raychez,


I can read it but it is a challenge, just had to click on it and my computer shows a somewhat larger version. Attached is a PDF of the updated document from Lippert that is easier to read and has complete information on two methods...

to original poster, just a quick issue we had on 2016 Vintage Cruiser. We were coming into Memphis when information on dash of truck flashed up trailer disconnected, what 60 miles per hour and trailer is disconnected. Well it wasn't but as we were slowing down did notice extra push. Got to our campground which was in Memphis and decided to check on what was awry still had many more miles to go. Checked truck end all seemed good using a multi-meter. Checked trailer side all seemed okay went old school and pulled break-away and nothing on trailer brakes happened usually you can hear the magnets clunk or a humming noise from them. Now I am thinking trailer end there are no fuses on the line to the brakes according to tech where we bought trailer and he said may be truck controller. Well already tested that so got all ambitious and went on search under trailer, in box on front where all the connectors are and such got to left wheel single axle trailer and noticed a wire not connected to anything. Ended up being the "scotchlock" type connector they used had cut wire evidently did the strip and wire all together taped it up and now we had brakes. When we got home I redid most of the connectors with but splices and heat shrink tubing. You may check there.
