RE: intermittent brakes

:? Really glad I found "that problem" and fixed it BUT, I hooked up a did a few miles, twice when I hit a bump I got "the message" check trailer brake wiring. Now I am fearing there is another spot. The way this is going and with everyone busy and trying to hire help, I may be in for more crawling under the trailer. Bad thing, leaving for a 1200 mile vacation Friday. I think I am back to the wire thru the tube and all the connectors.

RE: intermittent brakes

I cut the bad spots out,put butt joints in that had heat shrink on them. It's inside the frame, wires were long enough to pull through. Slipped piece of hose over the wires and taped it then pushed it back inside.

RE: intermittent brakes

photo Don't know if this will work...found this inside of the wiring sleeve going to drivers side rear axle. One of the wires had tape on it so I'm thinking it is from original installation at factory. I have had trailer for 13 years and none of this has been touched and we got it from original owner.

RE: intermittent brakes

Replace all the splices, wiring never fails in the middle, always at the connections. I have checked everything visible and I can't see anything that looks like it would be a problem. I have heard of insulation wearing off inside the axles over time. It might not be my problem but I think that I will pull new wires thru and then I will know.

RE: intermittent brakes

Thanks to you both, sound advise. I will try the light bulb thing and see where that goes but seeing how my rig is pushing 20 years, I might just start at main wires and run new through axles and hopefully be covered.

intermittent brakes

I am having the intermittent brake problem. I have done some diagnostics as recommended in other posts. I pulled the emergency connection and all four wheel rolled, I checked for power at wires coming out of that connector and had power, crawled under trailer on drivers side and checked for power at front axle, good. Checked rear axle and it was no go, wiggled some wires, pulled on wire going through axle etc, checked power and at rear axle drivers side again and it was there. Went back to truck, plugged emergency connector back in, checked dash brake with manual slide controller and it went up to 10, pulled the emergencey plug and all four wheel slide? So I have determined that the problem is wiring and not magnets or in the hub..but don't know where to go from here?

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

Just a follow up and thanks for help and suggestions. Installed the Progressive Dynamics 4600 this morning. Pretty easy install really and all seems to be working as advertised. Glad to have the situation resolved and looking forward to stronger batteries and longer battery life.

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

The batteries will last much longer on the Progressive converter, as it does not cook them. I have installed two in Magnatek/Parallax panels, very easy job. On my Winnebago motorhome, the converter and fridge 120v were on the same breaker so I wirenutted both wires to a short pigtail into the breaker (originally they were both in one wire thimble). The Bigfoot trailer had the converter on its own breaker. By all means install the DC fuse panel, It requires a little wire bending and routing changes as the lugs are in slightly different locations, but you get led warning lights for each fuse to show they are blown and you get a button to control the charge wizard in the converter, plus and LED to show converter status. USE A 3/8 wrench to hold the square terminal blocks while you tighten the screws so you don't twist the terminals off the printed circuit board. Charles Some great information, thank you.

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

Picture of overheated PC board Because I am that kind of guy, I had to see what I could see. There is a slow blow fuse on the PC board but it tested good but I found this area of PC board had really overheated. New Progressive Dynamics 4600 on the way!

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

https://photos.app.goo.gl/xJKBP2iccY4JpPvx8https://photos.app.goo.gl/xJKBP2iccY4JpPvx8 I have 110 at the black/white wire in lower right, nothing out. No glass fuse, checked other fuse. If I have 11o at the charger and nothing coming out I think it is done. ISTR there is a 120v glass fuse on the circuit board to check too. Check the blue wire and use the metal casing as neg to see if there is any 12v output. if the issue is in the DC panel, that will by-pass the panel for your output check. You have to be sure the two RP fuses are both good and in tight, before giving up. Replace both and then see.

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

I have a suspicion that my charger is not putting out DC to recharge batteries in my rig. I have lights and 12 volt to accessories in trailer but batteries are dead. I am not sure how to test it even after reading several articles and watching YouTube videos. If the battery is not hooked up I get nothing coming out of the dc side of charger, I have 110 going in at the lugs on the charger, the fuses for reverse polarity and charger are both good. Is there a way with a multi tool to test output on the charger side? Thinking about just replacing it with a Progressive Dynamics 4655 and being done with it.120vac power in, check. 13.6vdc out, nope. That is the test and the converter is shot. Yes the 4655 goes in and all is better than ever. Thank you, 4655 ordered. Looks like easy enough replacement.

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

110v does not go to any "lugs". Your 110v has a black and white wire. black goes to the bottom of one of the circuit breakers and the white goes to the neutral buss. Make sure that circuit breaker has not popped. You should see 13.8ish at the lugs on the DC panel across the blue pos and white neg output wires from the converter. Battery connected or not. Your 11.6 is battery voltage to the DC panel and you have no output from the converter, so if the RP fuses are ok that means no 110v in. check that circuit breaker at the bottom right front, a black and white wires carrying 110 to the charger, I have 110 at that point. The charger is not warm and the fan does not run so I am expecting it is done.

RE: charger side of Magnatek 7300

and if I do that should I be getting around 13.5 to 14 volts on the output side? my batteries test at 11.6 volts (2 6 volt) and volt meter show 11.6 at terminals coming out charger.
