Just wanted to say that in the meantime, if your rig acts as ours does, if turn your exhaust brake switch on, your brake lights will activate as soon as your foot comes off the accelerator (except at very low speeds). It's annoying to us to have the brake lights come on everytime we let off the accelerator but we will usually keep the exhaust brake off until we need it so the brake lights are usually not an issue for us.

But temporarily for you, at least it might be a little safer and prevent you from possibly getting rear ended until you get your treadle adjusted.
As a side note. I installed the little device called the brake switch to activate the exhaust brake when you press the brake and not when you release the throttle. WORKS LIKE A CHAMP! Easy install and the exhaust brake is always there when I need it!!

Are you saying that the exaust brake only comes on when you apply the brakes? Or do you have another switch that manually activates the exhaust brake?

Check out their website. I still have my switch for the exhaust brake to turn it off for slick roads, but honestly can't think why I would ever turn it off other wise. This little box makes the exhaust brake activate when you tap the brakes and it will deactivate when you press the accelerator. So the great thing is that now when I just let off on the accelerator, I just coast along and if I need to stop, when I apply the brake there is the exhaust brake. http://www.brakeswitch.com
I was skeptical at first, then I had a really close emergency stop on the interstate and I had the exhaust brake off. I ordered it the next day! So pleased with it, I had to share.
