Any ideas, are greatly appreciated?
p.s. although I do have electric brake controls in my Ford to brake the trailer , especially on downhills, I am wondering if the Safari 25' from the 2000n year has electric brakes which are applied when I use my auto brakes routinely?
Hi and welcome to the forums. I can't help you much regarding your west coast search but can tell you that your 2000 Safari does have electric brakes.
Assuming that your brake control is working and you have the proper wiring on your tow vehicle, you should have brakes. You can do a quick check by using the manual brake control feature on your controller to activate the trailer brakes without stepping on the brake pedal. Do this maybe on a parking lot or untraveled street while driving at low speed.
If you don't feel those brakes grab, you might want to go by a local dealer and have your tow vehicle and trailer checked out.
