We have a 2010 2350 S (Sprinter). After analyzing (cost, hassle, etc.) the many possibilities for a toad, we decided to carry our 2009 smart Fortwo on a trailer made for the smart car (http://www.smarttrailerusa.com/
). We plan to get the trailer with electric brakes. So, I had National Dodge install a Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller. (The hard part was finding the Sprinter connector for the controller; it was under the driver’s seat.
Before installing the controller, the Dodge technician noted that trailer turn signals would only operate when the brakes on the coach were activated. He noted that this problem was the same after he hooked up the controller.
I bought a Tekonsha trailer emulator and conducted my own tests. I won’t go into all the details of my test results, but I confirmed the technician’s observations. I want get this fixed before I buy the trailer.
Has anyone else had this problem with his or her connector? If so, what was the fix?
