97 Freightliner VC chassis and trailer brake controller
I tried to use the search option with no luck. All I could find was a lot of irrelevant content. I have a 97 overland osprey riding on a freight liner VC chassis with air brakes and a Jacobs exhaust brake. I am on the search for an electric trailer brake controller. My concerns is finding one that plays nice with the exhaust brake. When the Jake kicks on it turns on the brake lights. if the trailer brake controller is triggered by the brake lights then in theory wouldn't that also energize the trailer brakes. This could smoke a set of brakes on a long grade. any info on a unit that works well with air brakes, and an exhaust brake would be great. Thanks
