I bought a 2000 Jayco Eagle 14'; have towed it to the coast and back with '72 Ford F100 (new engine, tran etc). The tent trailer surge brakes never worked for the previous (second) owner. I've gotten by w/o out them so far, but think it would be good to have a little help at times. Trailer official weight is 2100lbs. My question is whether to have the surge brakes rehabbed, switch to electric or just leave well enough alone. My power brakes aren't working - when I get them going it should be all I need....? We don't go camping in funky weather, but do cross mountains. I'm just a bit concerned about the surge brakes enacting downhill. I just drove down highway 1 to Fort Bragg and if they had come on during those downhill runs they'd likely burn up. Or not..... What do you think?
