Terry Quantum 5th wheel move, Costa del Sol to Costa Blanca

A few days ago we collected another 5th wheel from camping La Bella Vista in Manilva and delivered it to Marjal Costa Blanca, near Catral.

There was a bit of a problem with the electric brakes and for anyone reading, you can't power the trailer brakes via the brake lights!! They need to be powered by a brake controller.A couple of hours later after chasing wires and trying to establish what had been done to the trailer, the brakes were connected to the integrated brake controller on the F350.

The only other issue were the indicators, which wouldn't work but as always, we carry a large trailer board that solved the problem.

We quite often encounter problems when collecting trailers. Please peeps, even if your trailers are on a pitch and not moving for a couple of years, maintenance of the running gear (brakes, tyres, bearings, electrics) is imperative and far more cost effective than spending several hours at moving time, making it roadworthy!
