They always break on the right side. System worked great for 4 years, then started having problems. Have a picture but cant up load. I am using a Maxbrake Controller.


Expert Reply:

I spoke to my contact at Kodiak about the issue you are having and he said that sometimes if a trailer braking system is doing way too much of the braking the pressure can get too high for the calipers and they can break (not brake). He said that the trailer's brakes are designed as a supplement for the vehicle's braking and they are not intended to do the majority of the braking for the towing setup.
