Jamesmc321, your truck sway control modulates your truck brakes. The electronic sway control senses extreme trailer sway and modulates only the trailer brakes. It is mounted on the front of the trailer working off of the trailer battery.

It is not connected in any way to the tow vehicle. Hopefully between the two any dangerous sway will be nonexistent. It was worth the extra $275 to me to add it to my options list. Wireman

Is the DSC market through Dexter distributors? Haven't seen this product on Amazon or Ebay yet.

Yeo, familiar with sway, my gmc will apply the breaks of the trailer and truck to bring it back under control, why I mentioned that more research might have to be done

From GMC site


TRAILER SWAY CONTROL
Integrated with StabiliTrak and the trailer brake controller (if equipped), Trailer Sway Control senses trailer sway and automatically applies the brakes on the vehicle and trailer and helps reduce engine power if necessary to set the situation straight again.

So would it be fair to say that this is new technology that really hasn't been tested by the consumer.

Yes, it is standard on the 2013 Chevy Silverado's and on. What happen to the Ford's and Ram's? Are they slow in catching up?

The electronic sway control that I am talking about is mounted directly through travel trailer. Not something that is part of the tow vehicle. I believe that is new technology as I have not found anyone that has or uses it.

My 2014 Ram 1500 Truck has it as well. But all TV systems will control independently the left or right brake system plus engine control of the TV and will apply adequate power to the trailer brakes. As the trailer brakes are all tied together means it applies power to all the trailer brakes. So it is not a full proof trailer sway control. It is more a TV sway control.


Dexter Sway Control will apply power to the opposite side of the sway (similar as the TV sway control does to the TV)
