Thanks Morgan Guy, I'll check those areas even though we do not have the rear pano windows.

Since this thread was brought up again, I'll say we have really enjoyed the trailer in the last year, and have had it from home to Key West, and then out to Oregon, and then to Colorado. Also numerous local club rallies. In excess of 10,000 miles. Had one tire separate and blow in Idaho causing a couple of grand of damage, but our insurance took care of it. It is now equipped with 16" Michelins instead of the 16" BF Goodrich LT's.

Since we got the trailer I have replaced the air conditioner covers, the skylights, the slide awning fabric, and all of the plastic chrome molding. Also had the Actibrake actuator fail, replaced it with a Dexter, had it fail, and Dexter replaced it under warranty. Not to thrilled with the reliability of the electric over hydraulic brake systems.

Here's a couple of pics y'all have probably already seen, but anyway, the first is camped near Key West, and the second on top of Spring Creek Pass, Colorado.

One might look at the Tuson ActuLink ACT1600 pump and DirecLink NE OBDII based brake controller on the next go around. I liked the separate electronics control module on the Titan Brakerite II SD and carry a spare module. We found out after the installation that the truck built in brake controller was incompatible with Titan hydraulic disc brake pumps and after lots of research installed the Tuson DirecLink NE brake controller.

DirecLink NE Brake Controller -

We were easily able to bypass the Dodge factory trailer brake system with simple wiring changes and the factory brake system is perfectly happy and not throwing error codes even if I move the manual brake application slide switch. The trailer is just not there as far as the truck system is concerned.

This wiring change would also allow the Tekonsha P3 system to work as well, but I preferred the ODBII based system to the pendulum based system in the P3.

We had the display screen die on the first DirecLink NE brake controller, but it was still fully operational. They sent me a replacement via FedEx.

When the Titan pump quits, I am strongly considering switching to the Tuson ActuLink ACT-ABS-300 system which requires replacing the disc brake assembly at the ends of each axle.
