    Adding a battery to a 1999 Viking 2107

    Usually there is 'charge' line from the vehicle/trailer connector to the converter red wire batt +. Splicing into this near the battery location is how my coachmen was wired using red & white wires. This allows the vehicle to 'charge' while towing and the converter to charge when plugged into...

    does a battery need to be connected for shore power?

    MAYBE NOT! (taping the positive so it doesn't come in contact with the frame MAY be a better thought) You don't need a battery if/when on shore power.

    and the maker of these winches suggests if the ex-tube unscrews something like cable wrap or bent parts is stopping the cable from coming out. I would try screwing on the tube and supporting the weight, then releasing the pawl to see if it can be lowered as you suggested. Alternatively...

    Trailer brakes getting tighter over time?

    turn the boost down if you can I had a similar situation, new brakes, I turn up the boost to get them to work. A trip or two later and they were grabbing near home going slow. Turned down the boost and drove 30mph with the brakes applied for several blocks a few times. Work much better now.

    Help needed badly
