I have a question that may sound strange, but here goes.
How does the Brake Buddy work? How does the unit know to apply the brake? Is there some sort of motion sensor in it that detects a decrease in forward movement of the vehicle?
The reason I'm asking is this. I just finished a trip from Columbus, Ohio to Fort Worth, Texas, towing a 2003 Silverado. The receiver I have in the dash of the Bounder flashed a couple of times when I initially left Columbus, then never again. If I hit the test button, the BB and receiver works fine, but that's not a true test of the BB under normal operation.
The only way I could test it is to have someone ride in the toad while I drive the MH.
While driving down here, I didn't sense the toad causing a drag when braking but I don't know if I should.
As you can tell, I am new to RVing and this is my first long trip.
Any help you can provide will be appreciated.
