This raises an interesting question . The '76 service manual shows a schematic for electric sway control ( Tru-Track Electric Sway Control ) I have not found this on my coach , possibly was an option . Has anyone come accross one of these ?

Ticki2,

There was a brief mention of this a year ago. Here is the thread.
http://www.airforums.com/forum...uch-16549.html

It starts around the middle of the thread. Can you post a scan of the schematic?

Don't know how well this will work but will give it a try.

brake/anti-sway

I wonder if anyone has designed or built a computer/sensor controlled differential braking anti-sway? The example in this thread looks like it applies all 4 at once. I wonder if it would work if you could brake the only one side in a hyper-controlled manner?

Electric Brake Anti-Sway Device

My Holiday Rambler, which was manufactured in 1995, had some extra wires that seemed to go nowhere. I found one end of them at the hitch.

When I took it to an RV service tech for some unrelated repairs I asked about the wires. The technician told me that an anti-sway device was available as an option on this trailer, but my trailer didn't have it installed. These wires were for that device.

It was supposed to work by sensing sway and applying brakes on one side to counter the sway. According to the technician, the system didn't work well and was discontinued.

I don't know whether or not his explanation is true, but it's certainly plausible. I had never heard of this system before, and haven't heard of it since.

I would guess that with today's sensors, such a system could be built.

Loren
