so all is working now and correctly?

this issue of the chevrolets having a dummy fuse has been discussed multiple times...

but still regularly bites folks who plan on towing.

it seems like they have created this nagging issue by leaving out a nickel fuse.

happy travels!

Well the 12v line is active and I guess I won't know if all is well until I take that trip up North and the brakes behave the WHOLE way! They always worked like they should... right up until they didn't (randomly).

The dealership where I bought the truck.

WOW! I now have replaced my old Draw Tite controller with the Hayes Energize XPC and also have the 12v functioning with the FUSE. To set up the brake controller (pendulum) I loaded the truck (I'm leaving soon for BB rally anyway) and pulled the trailer into the middle of the street, where it's most level. Then I pulled the trailer forward and back playing with the brakes. When I squeezed the manual control- it was like whiplash! No matter how high the old controller was set, (or how charged the battery was) the trailer brakes never had such power. It's awesome!

I have kept, but not installed, the new unit that was sent to be sure no problems arise on our trip- but if all goes well I'll send it back. I'm pretty confident I can go back to worrying about my tires blowing or windows braking, or backing into something..or
