It has on my older Jayco's and other brand units but not my new one. I thought my older brake controller was bad so I purchased the new P3 and I have nothing different than my older one. Grrrrr

They all buy their components from the same companies. Besides last time I checked all the chassis came from publicly traded companies.

I dont agree!! 321 is a heavy unit. In my experience, no heavy trailer is going to slide a wheel or stop dramatically. Your TV should be doing most of the work with an assist from the trailer. Lighter trailers tend to have the ability to lock a wheel which in reality is a recipe for disaster on wet pavement. If your trailer can stop your rig from 20 mph in a couple 100 yards is really all that you should expect.

Sad Sad Sad, this may explain a lot of the quality issues Jayco is having like my brakes..
Quality issues?

Sorry but I see no correlation with the buyout of Jayco by Thor and your statement.

This has nothing to do with your brake problem. Continue to persue it with your dealer.

I had bought Jayco for a few reasons, one being they remained family owned. I like mom and pop businesses that refuse to get bought out. In my opinion they just put a nail in the coffin and sealed the deal on what I'll own next. Self build or custom manf. Just as well to own anything now if you want a mass produced Rv. Not many independents left, if any. All about the money, and I'm all about the quality.
