Expert Answers about Tuson RV Brakes

  • Can Prodigy RF Brake Controller be Used with Tuson Electric Brake Sway Control System
  • You can use the Prodigy RF brake controller part # 90250 with the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes # 335TSC-1000 that you also referenced. Essentially the Tuson Control system detects trailer sway and then applies the trailer brakes in a way that is known to reduce the sway. If the # 90250 is also applying the brakes the Tuson would override the brakes and apply them harder if needed to stop the sway. With trailer sway if you apply just the trailer brakes...

  • Does Repeater in Tuson RV and Trailer TPMS 335TPMS4W4V Draw Power Continuously
  • The RF repeater included in the Tuson RV and Trailer TPMS # 335TPMS4W4V will draw power continuously since it is not a switched device but since it draws only about 11-milliamps you don't need to worry about battery drain. It would take a very long time for that small power draw to cause any issues.

  • Can Tuson TPMS RV System be Used on Spare Tire
  • I spoke with my contact at Tuson regarding their TPMS systems like the 6 Sensor Kit # 335TPMS6W4V that you were looking at and he said that the tire does need to be rotating for the sensor to be able to gauge pressure and temperature. You can certainly still mount the sensor to the spare and program it to the monitor but it's not going to be able to read any data until the spare is actually mounted and being used. For a similar system that CAN be used to read the pressure of a spare...

  • Battery Life and Accuracy for the Tuson Towable Tire Pressure Monitoring System # 335TPMS4W4V
  • I spoke with Tuson and they answered all of the questions you had for the Tuson Towable Tire Pressure Monitoring System # 335TPMS4W4V. 1) The display needs to be plugged into a cigarette lighter socket for power. 2) The sensor batteries are rated to last 5 years with normal RV trailering use – the batteries are not replaceable 3) If a sensor fails, the monitor display will show “----“ for that sensor 4) The pressure sensors are accurate to +/- 1 psi

  • Difference Between the Tuson DirecLink Base and Tuson DirecLink Lite
  • The main difference between the Tuson DirecLink Base Model Trailer Brake Controller part # 335DL-100 and the Tuson DirecLink Lite Trailer Brake Controller part 335DL-50 is that the Base has low-speed brake adjustments and transmission temperature monitoring on Ford and GM vehicles. The low speed brake adjustments allows you to adjust the amount of braking that the DirecLink applies at low vehicle velocities such as in town driving. The Tuson DirecLink is one of the most innovative brake...

  • Should Weight Distribution be Used for Towing a 10K Trailer with a Class A Motorhome
  • Weight distribution (WD) systems are really only needed when the weight of the trailer is at least half of the weight of the vehicle towing it. Since this isn't the case with your Class A motorhome pulling your 10K trailer I doubt you really need a WD system but you could benefit from adding some sway control. Typically we recommend using a WD system with integrated sway control but since the WD isn't needed you can just use one of our standalone sway control units. Another thing to note...

  • Installation Location of Tuson Electronic Sway Control for Electric Trailer Brakes
  • The Tuson Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes # 335TSC-1000 has installation instructions that give a placement location on the center of your trailer and 5-10 feet behind the hitch ball. The unit comes with a wiring harness so you can customize the fit within the parameters given. The placement you show in the photo will not work as it uses a sensor to monitor trailer movement and an algorithm based on that specified mounting location.

  • Trailer Still Sways with Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System on a 2018 Ford F-150
  • Installing an anti-sway bar on your 2018 Ford F-150 is not going to do much of anything for trailer sway as trailer sway starts on the trailer, not the truck. In order to hammer down what is causing the trailer to sway I first need to know which Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System you have. You should be using part # EQ37100ET which is rated for 600 lbs - 1,000 lbs. If you are not then that could very well be part of the problem as there won't be enough tension on the spring bars to...

  • Best Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator Recommendation for Trailer Disc Brakes
  • If you are looking for the most reliable and best performing electric over hydraulic actuator which would work well with the factory brake controller of your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 the best option is the HydraStar part # HBA16. Of all the actuators we offer this one works the quickest and gives us the least amount of reliability issues. This also is for disc brakes like the Tuson you mentioned.

  • Availability of Tire Monitor System for a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We do have a variety of tire monitor systems! If you can let me know how many axles your trailer has and what size wheels you have I can make a recommendation from the linked product list page. For example, the Tuson # 335TPMS4W4V comes with 4 transmitters that fit valve stems with a 0.453" diameter (typically found on wheels with a diameter of less than 16").

  • There is a way to set the amount of axles that will be displayed on the Tuson TPMS part # 335TPMS4W4V that you referernced. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions that covers selecting the amount of axles for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Sway Control for a Trailer With a Small tongue Pulled by a 2010 Ford E-350 Super Duty
  • The best way to keep your towing setup level and to prevent sway would be to use a weight distribution system, but if your trailer tongue space is limited then a weight distribution system might not be the best option for you. You might be able to use a weight distribution system that uses the chains, like the Reese Strait-Line # RP66088, along with some chain hangers, part # RP58305, which will allow you to install this system on the side of your trailer tongue. Please keep in mind...

  • Troubleshooting Tuson DirecLink Brake Controller on 2009 Freightliner
  • Just to make sure I am understanding correctly, you are getting the correct signals on the black, blue, red, and white wires on the Tuson DirecLink, like the Base Model # 335DL-100, but when you connect your trailer to your 2009 Freightliner it doesn't receive a brake signal from the controller. If this is the case then you simply need to test the wire that carries the brake signal from the controller back to your trailer. A typical 7-Way trailer connector should be receiving the brake...

  • Using Electric Trailer Brake Controller and Tuson Electronic Sway Control Simultaneously
  • If you have a trailer that requires brakes and sway control it is wise to additionally use a brake controller as the electronic sway controller is not a brake controller so it won't apply brakes unless there is sway. When using the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes # 335TSC-1000 the use of an aftermarket brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 is not only possible but necessary. If you are looking for a brake controller that does not require a separate...

  • Operating Distance of Tuson RV and Trailer TPMS # 335TPMS4W6V
  • I sent your question to Tuson about the Tuson RV and Trailer TPMS # 335TPMS4W6V and they sent me the following with the attached picture: Based on our test results in an open space environment (without considering the shielding effect of vehicle structure), the max. distance between the sensor (installed in the tire) and the repeater is 20m (65.6 ft.), the max distance between repeater and receiver is 40 m (131.2 ft.). When considering a real-life situation where the shielding effect...

  • RV Tire Sensor Kit Recommendation that Allows Use of More than 6 Sensors/Tires
  • We do now offer the TireMinder RV Tire Pressure Monitoring System # TPMS-APP-6 which uses your smartphone as its display. This too comes with 6 sensors but more CAN be added to this system using 2-piece sensor pack # TM-2BRASS. Up to 22 tires can be monitored. There currently isn't a Tuson option that allows for more sensors to be used although we've heard in 2019 they may be releasing a 10 sensor kit.

  • Is Tuson Electronic Sway Control Compatible with 2018 Ram 2500 OEM Controller and 30' Travel Trailer
  • The Tuson Electronic Sway Control System # 335TSC-1000 has been confirmed to work with Dodge OEM brake controllers (verified by Tuson) and is compatible with 1 - 4 axles. Since you have an OEM controller on your 2018 Ram 2500 and your 30' travel trailer only has 2 axles this sway control system will work great for you! Attached is a review video and the written instructions for you to check out as well.

  • How to Reduce Trailer Sway When Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I believe you are referring to your 5th wheel trailer swaying by the "axle whip" term you were using. If you have electric brakes then we do have the electric sway control unit # 335TSC-1000 from Tuson which is compatible with trailer that have up to 4 axles. Aside from this there isn't really anything you can add to your 5th wheel trailer to reduce the sway but I do have some pointers that you can follow. Start off by making sure your 5th wheel trailer is evenly loaded side-to-side...

  • Are Specific Replacement Sensors Needed for Tuson Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems?
  • There is no unique ID necessary when ordering the Replacement Tire Pressure and Temperature Sensor for Tuson Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems # 335TPMS-SENS. When you get a replacement you will only need to pair the sensor to the receiver like you did when you initially set up the system.

  • Will the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System Fit a Commercial Trailer
  • The electronic sway control devices we carry like the Tuson Electronic Sway Control System part # 335TSC-1000 are excellent options to both help maintain and prevent trailer sway issues but they only work on trailers that have electric brakes. If you are referring to a commercial trailer like that on the back of a lorry/semi then odds are you have air or hydraulic brakes which means we would not have an electronic sway control device for you. However, if by some chance you do have electric...

  • Recommended Electronic Sway Control for 2001 Chevy 2500 Towing a 2016 Forest River Wildwood
  • The Tuson Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes - 1 to 4 Axles # 335TSC-1000 will apply your trailer brakes side to side as needed to help combat sway. It mounts along the center of your trailer between 5 and 10 feet from the coupler hitch ball and splits the braking circuit into two separate circuits. It does require wire like # 12-1-1 sold by the foot to complete the system. This system will absolutely help your weight distribution system to control the sway....

  • Can Tuson Towable Tire Pressure Monitoring System Pair with Another TPMS?
  • The Tuson Towable Tire Pressure Monitoring System - 6 Sensors - 0.625" Diameter Valve Stems # 335TPMS6W6V is an independent complete system. You will not be able to pair this with any other tire pressure monitoring system. The receiver on the monitor and the transmitters on the valve stems are not able to work apart from each other.

  • Will Tuson DirecLink Brake Controller Work with International Prostar Pulling 40 Foot Trailer
  • Yes, the Tuson DirecLink Base Model Trailer Brake Controller # 335DL-100 will work well for a 40 foot trailer that is equipped with 2 axles. This unit is compatible with trailers that have up to 4 axles (8 total brake assemblies). The DirecLink will simply plug into the OBD-II port and the pigtail harness will need to be spliced into the appropriate wires on your truck (see attached image). For your International Prostar you will likely need to add either the Module Kit # 335HDCON-6PIN...

  • Does Tuson RV TPMS System Work Better on Steel or Aluminum Wheels
  • The Tuson RV and Trailer TPMS System # 335TPMS4W4V that you referenced will work equally well on steel or aluminum wheels. I verified this with my contact at Tuson RV. He said that the valve stems use a rubber grommet to seal to the valve stem hole so the valve stem itself doesn't even make contact with the wheel. Because of this the wheel's construction has no impact on the sensors for this system. I have attached a short video review and the complete installation manual that you can...
