Intermittently functioning Brakes
We recently had a problem with the brakes functioning intermittently on our 2012 Jayco 24T travel trailer. We went to a large RV repair company that services all brands of RVs. When I told my problem to the Service Manager he responded that this is a very common problem with Jayco trailers that have the brake wires inside the tubular axles. The wires rub around and wear the insulation off resulting in intermittent functioning. I was present when the wires were removed and saw that the insulation was missing in a couple of areas. New double insulated wires were installed outside of the axle and we have had perfect operation since.
This is a safety issue because the brakes do not work when a short occurs and the lack of brakes is very unpredictable.
