Hey, Herschel!

Do you have the disc or the drum brakes, and if the former, do you have the "override switch" wired in for backing up?

Thanks!

Francesca

Sorry, my computer locked up. Running seven tabs at a time I guess.

I was hoping for discs brakes (my preference) but they have changed to drum.

Alan said one of his customers removed the back up some how. Guess he had a problem and took it out. I didn't press to what he did. I think installed a controller. Whether that's the reason or not I don't know.

You can downgrade to electric drums, or you can use an electric-to-hydraulic converter (instead of the surge coupler) to continue to use your disk brakes but with an electronic controller (no solenoid valve needed). Sadly, the complete brake system replacement would likely be cheaper than the converter.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
