New Jayco White Hawk as brake connections on one side only??

I was under my new 2014 27ft. Jayco White Hawk TT and noticed that the electric brake wires were only connected on the drivers side. The passengers wires under the trailer were not connected to anything. Is this normal?

Perhaps normal given the poor QC in some plants but certainly not right.

You could double check and then ring up the factory and tell them you can't bring it in for repairs because it is too dangerous and they are going to have to make a free house call.

usually the wires run through the axle and connect the 2 sides then only 1 side runs to the front of the trailer.

I will double check that before making the phone call and sounding totally clueless. Thanks for the information.

I second this. Helps with limiting exposed wiring.

You were right, there is wires running to the brakes on the other side. I just had to crawl under a little more. Thanks for the information.
