Airstream Service recommends and installs DirectLink controllers. They are connected to the TV OBD-II system . Mine works great with the EOH set up. In fact, with the Banks Speed Brake, I have to keep an eye on the rear view camera for tailgaters. Remember the old saying, "stops on a dime and gives you nine cents change." You just can't beat 5 axle disc brakes and "grade braking" for stopping a rig.

We have many 2007-2011 Duramax/Allison trucks with integrated trailer brake controllers and cargo trailers. The integrated trailer brake controllers work fine. Usually the gain is adjusted to 6 or 6.5.
We only have one 2015 with integrated trailer brake controller, and so far it works fine with a horse trailer.

When we converted the 2014 Classic to Kodiak 12" disc brakes, the distributor of the Titan RiteBrake II SD never mentioned that it was incompatible with ALL factory installed trailer brake controllers. I found out that tidbit of information driving home through the mountains in the dark. It was challenging.....

So we started the research into a third party trailer brake controller along with researching how to bypass the factory controller without throwing error codes in the 2012 Dodge Ram 2500HD Cummins. We settled on the Tuson OBD plug DireLink NE trailer brake controller and found the bypass information for the truck wiring.

This combination has worked well.

When the BrakeRite II gives up, we will probably convert to the Tuson Actulink ABS brake controller and replumb the brakes lines and replace the existing disc brakes for ABS models. That is the ultimate safe brake system for the our Classic that weighs around 9,300 pounds camping ready.
