Thank You all very much for taking the time to respond to my question. The MSRP was $97,000, and we paid very close to $60,000.
Way too much money to not being able to use it with confidence due to the brakes not properly working.
I will try the emergency switch first, and then try everything else you all have suggested.
Please keep responding with any other suggestions, for the brakes and everything else you can tell me. While I have had two other 5ers, I am still learning this Trailer. There are several items (options) that I have never used, and would like all the tips you are willing to post.
I AM NOT afraid to ask questions, or follow up with the new advise from more experienced campers.
