It was installed on the 2017 23RD I just received, on our inaugural camping trip it failed and disabled the electric brakes. The service department at the dealership just received a recall notice today saying that it's not compatible with certain OEM brake control systems. They will have to remove it.

Sway Command

Just received word from my dealer that the Sway Command option has been removed from my order for a 2017 Jay Flight 28BHS related to recall. I guess better to find out now versus coming in and having to remove.

I guess the more complicated your tow vehicle is the more problems you may have with comparability
Our truck has no OEM brake controller and WDH voids the truck warranty

So we kept the trailer small and uncomplicated We just don't need anything bigger

So I guess Sway Comnand has been removed?

From the LCI website:

WARNING!
THE USE OF LCI’S SWAY COMMAND™ WITH 2014, 2015, 2016 GM TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH AN ITBCM COULD CAUSE REDUCED BRAKING EFFECTIVENESS, INDUCE LOSS OF BRAKE CONTROL AND INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY WHEN TOWING A TRAILER.
When LCI’s Sway Command™ is functioning on a trailer, the subject GM truck will display “Service Trailer Brake System” in the vehicle message center, the ITBCM will become disabled and the electric trailer brakes will not function until the ignition has been turned off and back on to clear the code.
DO NOT USE LCI’S SWAY COMMAND™ WITH 2014, 2015 OR 2016 GM TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH AN ITBCM WHILE TOWING A TRAILER.

I just signed the paperwork on my new rig. Dealer said that the DOT put a stop to the use because of the safety issues noted above.

They offered to take the value off the deal or give me credit towards a hitch package.

My tow vehicle is a 2014 VW Touareg, its' very high tech trailer towing package is too high tech for the Sway Command. The dealer is having to remove it.

1 16V560000 JAYCO EAGLE 2016 9901308 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INTEGRATED TRAILER BRAKE CONTROL Jayco, Inc. 20151013 20160720 V 3085 MFR Jayco, Inc. 20160727 20160727 Jayco, Inc. (Jayco) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Jay Feather, Jay Flight, Jay Flight SLX, Eagle, White Hawk, and Octane travel trailers manufactured January 5, 2016, to July 18, 2016, equipped with a Sway Command anti-sway system. When connected to certain tow vehicles that have an integrated brake controller, and after the anti-sway system has applied the trailer brakes in response to a sway event, the trailer brakes may no longer function to slow or stop the trailer. A loss of trailer brakes may lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Jayco will notify owners, and dealers will remove the Sway Command system from the affected travel trailers, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-800-283-8267. Jayco's number for this recall is 9901308. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). 000059251001988686000001165 20160729 Sway System may cause Loss of Trailer Brakes

Our 2017 Hummingbird has it, but sorry to the green light which my understanding should light when connected does not. I was told our Drawtite brake controller will not work with it. We now bought a primus IQ controller that is supposed to work. The sway command on our trailer does have power, ground, and the signal, but never have seen the indicator lights lite. I don't think it's working. Our next trip is next weekend so we'll check it again. My understanding is that it is going to be a standard feature, so I wouldn't think it would be on the option list.

Finally, before anyone replies that Jayco has a right to make changes... I know that and I'm not complaining. I'm just curious as to if anyone knows why they made the change.
Take a look under the "Recall" thread. Our dealer just told us today about a recall on Sway Command.
