Rich, I guess I will find out I ordered the Dexter today. I do see that it takes 3 volts to activate the system. That has me scratching my head a little since the way my Prodigy works now it very rarily gets above 3 unless I use the manual lever which is never other than testing. I thought the numbers on the prodigy were amperage but according to the manual its voltage. I have it on boost 1, I may have to put it on boost 2 to get a little more initial voltage. What brake controller are you using?
If its not running at the stops I wonder at what point does the trailer stop braking vs the Truck holding it back. As you see I am already having Desi & Lucy night mares.

I am posting a couple more pictures of the Dexter installation. The pictures show how the oil lines are connected going through the A-Frame box which had adequate room. However, the electrical connections (curbside) are a very tight fit from the looks of it. I had the dealer do the install so I didn't experience it first hand but I know that it took 4 hours for them to do it. Hope this helps in the event others change from the Actibrake to Dexter pumps.

Just picked up new-2-us 2006 classic 31 in Pa and went 1500 miles flawlessly- stopped at a campground in SC and when we pulled away the actibrake stopped worling- thanks to this thread, we were able to "re-boot" and get back on the road- hoping 2 make last 250 miles- will be looking into a new actuator. THANK YOU so much for all of the Airstreamers support in this forum.
