Just picked up our new 2023 Wolf Pup 14CC Saturday, and on the way home I noticed that just as it's coming to a stop, there's some vibration I can feel. It doesn't feel like warped rotors, it's very rapid. Pretty sure it's not skidding, I don't hear any skidding and I don't see the tires bouncing. If I dial down the power on my brake controller (Tekonsha Envoy rebadged as a Draw-Tite), it reduces the vibration. By the time I got home it was improving, so could it be the brakes just need to wear in a little? My popup never did this, even when the brakes were brand new. They don't vibrate at speed, it's just when I get below 5-10 MPH I can feel it.

It was called sentinel before it became envoy and that was the best cheapy controller I ever had. Anyway, it’s not very likely but check the shoes for grease. I’ve had it happen to me on a spanking new RV and the dealer warranty the new brake job. Craig

You need a "Chase" Driver as well. Are the wheels locking up and "Skipping' down the road or are the brakes stuttering? a Chase driver (With a partner and a video camera) (Cell phone in record mode) may be able to help.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Thanks Doug, that's another piece of useful info that strangely wasn't included with our new camper. I'll try the break-in procedure and hopefully that takes care of it.

Will not be included. This is an Install and TSB for service centers. Doug

Update: Seems the brakes just had to break in a little. Got back from our maiden voyage to Punderson (maybe 100 miles round trip), and they aren't shuddering anymore. Pulled the lever a couple times when nobody was behind me, and they work well without locking up or vibrating.
