Found the problem with my trailer brakes working on and off at will; the splice I made from brake controller to brake switch at the brake pedal. Never trust this kind of splice fitting. This was the ONE place I used this kind of wire splice, and I knew better, but the gauge was so thin, was in such an inaccessible place, and I figured it was in a more protected place than usual, I went the easy route. Well, for whatever reason after over 10,000 miles of being fine, it decided to get funky. I’m super glad it was this and not somewhere else along the line, as I put all my wiring in loom and through the frame from front to back and I was envisioning spending the whole day chasing potential ground probs, etc. Found this, got rid of the crap fitting, made a proper splice, wrapped it well with good 3M tape, and everything works fine again. I’m back on the road to Maine now!
