If so I will make an assumption here.. That is that Bargman makes the proper adapter.. For the TEKONSHA line of brake controllers.
Most of those connectors are off-the-shelf standard items by the way
NOTE: I have not verified what I'm about to post but another member here told me that the Teknosha controller can control the aux-brakes on my towed car.. I use a US-Gear system and he tells me the signals are standard electric brake signals.. Just so you know.
If you wish to tow 4-down. I'd give US-Gear a call and chat with customer support and verify that.
I DO NOT KNOW if their controller can do trailer brakes (But suspect not, higher current requirements)
thanks for the honest info.
My coach has the standard 7 pin round with flat connectors inside, just like on my recently departed 350
i never thought about bargman adapters. I did read teknosha web site and no freightliner harness adapters, which i found odd.
I have checked the 7 pin out back and it has brake light feed, as well as turn and lights and + output.
the pin for brakes is there and according to the freightliner wiring schematic i read. the under dash connector is the place to plug in or tie in for sending an electric brake power to the trailer being towed.
four down towing for us is not going to be an occurrence very often probably not even this year.
so i have been working the issue for electric brakes
We are planning a very long trek next summer and the auto transport has won out for several reasons, that make me feel better(warm fuzzy) over this long haul.
thanks again for the insight, i will give bargman a look see
us gear has a nice controller as well but it seems to be designed for a towed vechicle vice a trailer. one would think..... that chassis builders would have as an option a built in controller for trailers and odd balls that like to have a trailer with toys on it
