So my email was hit today with the latest IRV2 newsletter. There is a thread there that interests me, but as these threads so often do, it quickly got off into the weeds and wandered there for six indeterminate pages.
It has never occurred to me that brake lights come on on many (most?) coaches when the compression/engine/jake brake engages. But that seems like a good thing to me. The only way I see to test ours, is to have SWIMBO follow me in our dinghy. Not practical right now. So throwing it out to THIS forum.
Out of those six pages, I've a few questions I'd like to get firm responses to before WE drift off into the weeds.
1. Freightliner chassis, Cummins engine. Do the brake lights come on when the exhaust brake engages?
2. If so, do the dinghy brake lights also come on when the exhaust brake engages?
3. If so, if you pull a trailer or dolly or with electric brakes, or have electrically activated towing brakes in your dinghy, do those electric brakes engage while the exhaust brake is engaged? Or, are these three types only activated when you step on your service brake pedal?
To question three, my thought is that brake light wiring is separate from towing brake wiring so towing brakes should only be activated by the service brakes. But who knows? I'm not back there when some clown cuts in front of me and slows down.
