Electric or Electric Over Hydraulic?

Our RAM's factory brake controller has setting options for Electric and Electric Over Hydraulic. I am not sure which one to use for our 2016 Jay Feather. The RAM manual does not clarify which one to use. When do you use either setting?

Your TT has just electric brakes.

EOH = Electric Over Hydraulic
I have seen kits available to convert your TT drum brakes to disk brakes. TT drum brakes are activated by electrically controlled magnets, the more current applied, the more braking achieved. The disk brakes, like the ones on your tow vehicle, are hydraulically operated, the more hydraulic pressure, the more braking achieved. The disk brake conversion requires a brake fluid reservoir controlled by an actuator controlled by the brake controller. Just as brake controllers are rated by the number of axles, not all brake controllers are not rated for electric over hydraulic.

So, the EOH setting is for towing a trailer with disk brakes, and Electric is for trailers with drum brakes - Do I have it right?

I have two electric settings: Light Electric and Heavy Electric. How do you determine which setting to use?

I can't tell you that. Check the manual. I would assume it is related to the trailer weight you are towing.
