Ford is protecting the masses ( from what I do not know either)

reminds me how California is protecting everyone from everything

(tell that to the guy sliding down the ice hill and starting to jackknife but can't save his own bacon with the manual slide control )

if your pickup brakes can't stop 10k lbs at 10mph you should probably be looking at something in your brakes other than the TBC

or do some leg workouts to step on the brake pedal harder

Funny that you mentioned that. I was just thinking about that last night. There is a place that we take our camper too that has a really steep gravel hill going down into the campground.......I always pucker up a little bit going down that hill.....knowing that if the camper starts to push the rear of the truck around (jack knife).....I'm pretty much screwed since I have no way to manually work the brakes on the trailer.

I can think of several scenarios where you might want to work the brakes manually while going slower than 15mph.......and where it could get really dangerous really fast if you couldn't.

So if my truck starts sliding going down a steep gravel road and the camper is pushing my truck ....I just need to mash on the brakes harder?? You think that will straighten things out??

You haven't towed much weight before have you?

yea I've towed 17k behind mine without trailer brakes, thanks

if you're that concerned about it drop to 4 low and let the engine do the braking or buy an aftermarket controller, which with the OEM I'm not sure how that would hook up

I remember loosing my aftermarket brake controller function on a work truck towing about 10 k and a panic stop that never happened because that trailer pushed me all the way thru the intersection

that truck had ABS and it even gave up the pulsing motion and locked the brakes trying to slow down

that truck had perfect brakes

So when the truck is sliding down an icy, gravely, muddy hill and you have a 10,000lb trailer behind you pushing the truck......no amount of truck braking will help you, you need to actuate the trailer brakes to correct that situation......know what I mean?

A trailer or pole trailer is required to have brakes if its gross weight exceeds 4,500 lbs. A trailer with a gross weight between 4,500 lbs. and 15,000 lbs. is not required to have brakes if it is towed at a speed of not more than 30 mph.
so you kept it under 30 smart ash ??
