I had a similar problem this spring on my 2015 26BHS. Ran through the truck, connector, and the j-box on the front of the trailer only to find no issues. Looked under the trailer and found that the wire had pulled out of the cheapy crimp connector on the driver's side. Reconnected this and no problems since. I also re-did the other connections while I was at it because it looked like it was only be a matter of time before they popped off.

My first official pull with the new trailer, I mishandled the breakaway lanyard and it activated the breakaway switch. The brake controller reported a "no connection" when, in fact, the trailer brakes were locked.


Did you check for +12VDC at the connector where you should see the magnets?

I replaced the connector in the bed of my truck. Make sure you swap it wire for wire.
The instruction that came with my new one differed from what I actually had that worked fine until it broke.

Fixed.

I went out today prepared to go through things based on all the advice here. I started by inspecting the 7-pin plug, and with the brakes still not working, decided I'd pin out each connection in the plug to its associated wire to test that the actual 7-pin connector plug and cable were OK.

When I opened the junction box to get access to the other end of the cord, I found the blue wire for my brakes hanging by a thread, pretty much disconnected from the marrette, which would explain why the brake controller is reading "no trailer brake".

Poor craftsmanship (provided that it is original). The wires that are connected via marrette were only stripped back about an 8th of an inch, and were barely joined inside the marrette. I stripped them all back and reconnected (and taped them), and voila, everything works again.

I'll likely replace the marrettes in the JB with crimped connections in the spring, but I've solved my problem and can put her away for the winter with peace of mind.

Thanks for all of your suggestions.

Great. Now next time someone needs help, or a similar problem occurs, you have been there and will have a leg up on it.
