Question for greenenvy1: Do you notice any difference in braking on a new rig at the beginning of the trip and the end?

I had new brakes installed on my rig and they were right when they said they would need to be "burnished" in for the first hundred miles or so before being fully affective.

greenenvy1, thanks for looking, but my trailer arrived in tynsgboro, MA on Tuesday and my brothers arrived Wednesday so I don't think the where even there. We both take delivery on them Fri and Sat. I'm excited to hear that you could open your tailgate with the atwood. I could not fully open it with my last trailer that had an aftermarket power tongue jack. Hopefully the atwood will make all the difference with my truck as well. Someday, I would like to take a trip to the factory.

They always seem a little twitchy at first. Actually I hate my brake controller and a higher end unit is on my wish list. I can never seem to get the brakes adjusted to my liking with the Reese unit I have now.

You know what I used to like snow! Now I'm just tired of driving in it. Seems like EVERY trip I've done to date there has been some kind of snow. Today between Fargo and Grand Forks was horrible snow and fog. WHereabouts in MN are you? I'll be passing through there on Sat and possibly again on Sun or Mon.
