-the "controller" is tow vehicle mounted hardware.
-the "actuator" is part of the trailer braking system,
along with the fluid reservoir, pump, hard lines, rotors, calipers, pads and so on.
the actuator (along with the reservoir and pump and wiring) is THE actibrake portion as i understand it.
looking forward to your next UPDATE here.
the notification suggests LETTERS will be going out to owners (probably based vin) mid AUGUST...
so we're ahead of that here and chris may not know any more about it than we do...
my understanding has been the actibrake bits are sensitive to proper grounding
and SOME of the problems relate to that...
but that also the circuit boards FAIL unexpectedly which=no brakes.
so how do they go aboug "inspecting" for sudden failure of an electrical/circuit type item?
2 other issues...
1. the a/s company service center has installed actibrake/kodiak systems AFTERMARKET on some trailers...
are THOSE folks part of this too?
2. some people have already REPLACED faulty actibrake gear on their classics (05/07)...
do THOSE folks get compensated for having already PAID to replace this recalled item?
it's gonna be an interesting few weeks, sorting this out.
