do the clearance lights and turn signals operate with the tv lights?

IF the connection isn't good the controller won't work well...

after cleaning the connections and improving the contacts...

the brake controller MUST be calibrated, did you do this?

also your disc brakes need to be bedded correctly and the controller set at the ideal level...

that's about it...

without more info on your situation.


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Double/eagle; did you get improvement after cleaning the connector?

The Tow Commander on my 05 F250 is factory installed and has performed very well except that occasionally it alarms for only 2 seconds and the dash display tells me to check trailer. Nothing can be found.

We tow a 05 Safari 28 with drum brakes.

After finding this thread I will try cleaning the connector again.
