  • Trailer Brakes Pulse with Hazard Lights

    Our Champion came with an old 4 pin light hookup and no electric brake wiring so we put in a new 7 pin plug and wired up a Hopkins brake controller. I accidentally noticed that the brake controller was pulsing when the hazards were turned on. This could be bad if moving as the trailer brakes may be pulsing or it could wear out the brakes if left pulsing for a long period of time while parked.

    Moral of this story - If you install or have installed a trailer brake controller, turn on your hazards and make sure they aren't feeding back into the controller and making it pulse. On ours the digital display flashed on and off in time with the flash of the hazards.



    I am installing a Draw-Tite Pulse Preventor and will have info posted soon.
