    I am new here just wanted to share what's going on.
    I have a 18 that would connect to my flat bed trailer just fine but wouldn't connect to my airstream with electric over hydraulic brake system. After convincing my dealer it wasnt the trailer he ran it up the flag pole.....tried 3 new trucks none of them worked. Looks like they know there is a problem with the new system just not enough people complaining. To fast track a fix. So I am using a wireless system that goes inline until they come up with a fix. Apparently they do have engineer's and the manufacturer of the system working on a fix but it's not a high priority. Just another heads up to check your brake system even if you don't use it regularly.......it may not work when you need it. The more people who point this out to them the faster they will get a fix out.

    It's all related to the signal from the controller and the way it acknowledges the trailer. The truck doesn't even acknowledge it being there even though all the lights work. It seems to be a problem with the EOH systems.
    That's some good info though
