Brakes on my 2014 FC 25

I have a question about the brakes on my 2014 FC 25. Last year I had some trouble with my TV and pull off road. I had to be towed. The tow truck driver pulled my truck an airstream from the side of I-45 To an empty parking lot few hundred feet away. My truck or the TV had no power. The auto transmission was placed in neutral. While the tow truck driver was pulling us he said he saw a little white smoke coming from the AS wheels. I didn't see this but it did flag a question. In this mode are the brake locked or will the trailer just freewheel. I'm really not sure. Thanks. Bill

It sounds like maybe the brake away switch on the Airstream may have inadvertently been activated. The switch receives its power from the Airstream, not the tow vehicle. You may wish to examine the brake shoes on the Airstream. Jim
