Are the brakes on the trailer stuck on , even partially , is the trailer too heavy for the vehicle ? if all this ok i'd check the water pump is ok on your truck, as the extra power needed for towing , will put extra strain on all ancirally components , ie drive belts , water pump , alternator, keep me posted if you wish

How should I prepare my durango to pull a 24 foot travel trailer...what class of hitch, do I need in-board electric trailer brake controls, etc.?


Hi Frank,
I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.

While pulling a trailer we lose the running lights and tail light on 96 Winnebago Minnie


Check your grounds, expecially on the trailer. Check your trailer lights. Do you have some kind of bulbs that are of a high wattage? They may be draining more power than what the motor home is producing. Are there a lot of trailer lights? That could be the drain. If possible, pull out all the trailer bulbs and insert one at a time while watching for the lights to be affected.

When I hookup the brake lights come on.,,,I had the trailer come off the ball and pulled the cord out as well as the break away ,,, I replaced the plug on trailer as well as the receptal on truck. tried on...


When the trailer came off and pulled the light cord it stretched or broke wires inside the trailer harness. Start tracing back from the plug, paying careful attention to sharp bends and hold down points as well as connections. Remember that wire could pull apart inside the insulation without breaking it. It might be just as easy to replace the tailer harness. Hope this helps.

Electric trailer brakes are kicking out due to anti-lock brakes


The ABS will shut off the trailer brakes if it detects a problem. It sounds as if the problem is in the ABS control unit, or the trailer brakes may not be grabbing hard enough causing the trailer to push the truck when you are attempting to stop. This sometimes can be corrected by adjusting the gain up on the trailer brakes.

Pulling a trailer


Depends on the overall trailer weight and the tougue weight. Generally if the trailer weight is less than 6000 lbs and tonque weight does not exceed 700 lbs you should be okay. Consult your owners manual to be certain.
