i dont follow how using brakes apllied to either side would make it any better... if you aplly to one side it would make the sway worse... (had one trailer brake lock up before) and just putting on the brakes... well even a dmax can do that lol im not trying to start anything i just want a better understanding

Or how about Harley Davidson's "If I have to explain it, you won't understand". That one has always cracked me up. Harley is saying you are stupid if you ask questions about their bikes. And I have owned 5 Harleys so I'm not putting them down.

its definatly not a flawless technology, especially since not all trailers have brakes. the idea is to put added resistance on the trailer so that it tracks better, once "under control" it will realease the break pressure. this will wont help overcome improper loading that causes inbalanced resistance on the trailer axles


or at least thats how the dealer explained it... but we all know how reliable they are with knowledge

well, its a little more complicated than that... it also brakes the rear wheels on the truck individually to counterqact any wagging of the truck that might happen when the trailer is swaying out of control. thats also the part of the programming that is an attempt to be able to control trailers without brakes. but the real basic answer is that is used the truck and trailer brakes to add resistance that will counteract the swaying, in an attempt at minimizing or neutralizing it and allowing the driver to regain control

I'm laughing at the original post of this thread. I know its a little old but remember him saying the same thing about test driving the 6.4 when it was new and poof the engine light comes on. Seems like he could at least come up with a new story. lol
