Thanks to everyone who helped us get started rving with our used Bigfoot
two years ago. We got lots of useful advice here.
We are getting ready to rv again aftrer a couple of years off.
My tow vehicle now is a 2002 Yukon XL (flex fuel). It needed a brake controller and that is the beginning of a round of problems.
So everything was fine until I dropped off the Yukon for a Prodigy controller ar Bauers hitch in Minnetonka Minnesota.
Right after installation, some symptoms appeared. First we heard a scrapping noise. It sounded like it was coming from the left front wheel. I don't believe that his was a coinsidence, however at the same time I am wondering why or how could the new noise be connected with the new installation?
Next we heard the controller buzzing. Next everytime the controller buzzed the vehicle brake pedal would push up so hard the Yukon was almost impossible to stop.
Next, the abs light
Now Bauers has installed thousands of hitches and hundreds of controllers.
I took the Yukon back to Bauers and dropped it off with a description of everything that was going on and I instructed them to replace the Prodgy controller with a "tried and true" Activator controller.
I picked up the Yukon last night. The abs light
comes on intermittenly. The controller buzzes and pushes back on the brake pedal, but not so hard that I can't properly stop the Yukon. The scrapping noise is still there, it also is intermitten, but much reduced in noise and frequency of occurance.
Bauers said they had put the Yukon on thier computer and found that a wheel speed sensor was out.
Has anyone ever had this happen to them?
Has anyone ever talked to someone who had this happen?
Would someone care to "take a shot" at what all this might be? If so, please do as I am out of options.
Taking it back to Bauers is not an option.
My mechanic checked the front wheels and found shocks and joints to be o k. My mechanic has always been able to repair anything I presented him with, but now even he seems to be at a loss.
I just thought there might be enough controller experience available from the readers of this board to possibly be of some help.
Well thanks for listening.
