This is not what you want to hear, but the answer as I see it from my expereince with the ProPride, it depends. Given that senario, it depends on how much of a turn you are in when you stop with no brakes.

I can tell you while gearing down with my rig, I have never had that happen, or have never felt the "bump" that is talked about with the Hensley.

The guy was saying somethine like that happened to him on an off ramp at 35mph. He said he wouldnt want that to happen to him at 55mph.

Bump on turns while braking with the haha,(3p?)= strut bars not adjusted properly.(even with proper controller adjust).

Straight line bump while braking=brake controller mis-adjusted.(late trailer brk application).
