    Just picked up a brand new Fleetwood Sea Pine and I have a question about brake lock up. My TV is an 01 Silverado with a Tekonsha Prodigy. I cannot get those PUP brakes to lock while doing the set-up for the controller. Dialed up to a full 12 and pull the lever to the left and no lock. Now it does pull back on me (so it does brake hard)....but I can't get it to lock up. Do I need to adjust brand new pop up brakes? How would one set up the controller at this point?

    you have three setting on the prodigy, with brake boost settings b1, b2, and b3 if you can't get the wheels to lock up on b2 at full setting, then yes look into your brake shoes settings or drum rotors etc.

    My brakes won't lock either, yet the brakes work well. The Prodigy's instructions state that this is sometimes normal. If everthing else is working well and the brakes are properly adjusted, it may be ok. If you have brand new brakes, you should be able to get your dealer to check it out for you.
