We have already talked about how important truck brake repair is, but what about trailer brakes? While the ability to go is essential for your truck, nothing is as important as the ability to stop. Brake failure is so problematic that we have even constructed roads for runaway trucks where the brakes cannot control the truck.
However, truck brakes are not your system’s only important braking component. Your trailer brakes are essential as well. Suppose the truck stops, but the trailer keeps rolling. In that case, it can result in serious accidents, jackknifes, leaving the lane, and accidents. So, you want to ensure your trailer brakes are functioning as well as your truck brakes.
Trailer brake repair often depends on ensuring your brake controller is working correctly. That usually comes down to the wiring between your truck and your trailer. Of course, the brake controller is only one component of your braking system. You also have the physical brakes and the hydraulic system controlling those brakes.
What Is a Brake Controller?
A brake controller is an electronic device you can operate from your truck cabin to control the brakes in the trailer. There are several types of brake controllers, including
Older brake controllers are non-proportional. The driver activates them by pressing on the car’s brakes. However, the problem with this type of brake controller is that it applies the same pressure regardless of how complex the driver is pushing the brake pedal. Proportional brake controllers remedy that issue.
One of our most important responsibilities is inspecting and maintaining your brake system. When we inspect your brakes, we are looking for any wear and tear areas. We will check whether your brakes are generally operating under usual driving conditions. If we notice any issues, we can repair them. We can also handle routine maintenance, such as replacing parts at scheduled interviews.
