I have a 1985 Sovereign
25 footer with defective curb side brakes. It appears
there is a short in all four wires going to the two magnets in each brake. When the wires are seperated on the curb side, the street side brakes work
great, but the short is still there on all four wires. All four magnets in each
brake appear to be in good shape with practically no wear. I have lifted the covering inside the kitchen sink and see no problems with the wires, ie, no
trouble spots (burns) nor any chaffing of the insulators.
I can not determine how the wires go towards the front of the trailer after leaving the sink location. This of course would be to check for the short. There must be a junction box somewhere in line from the sink location to a point where the wires go to the hookup cable to the vehicle. I'm sure there is, however I can't find it.
I am tempted to slave off the good street side, go under the trailer and terminate to the curb side magnets after disconnecting the defective wires. Would this work if I can't find the short?
Any help and suggestions would be appreciated......grayman
