First off hello to all! I'm a new Barth owner and I am sure will have a lot of questions along the way, however what I have going on now is that I need to install a trailer brake controller. The specs. on this coach is already on this site from the previous owner Richard Muise. I did get a lot of manuals with this thing but sometimes advice from someone who's done it before is invaluable. An and all advice is appreciated. Data tag #9309

Welcome to the site and the group. Richard took good care of his coach. You should be all set. I have not hooked up a brake control in 40 years so I will defer to someone with more current knowledge.

Again Welcome

Welcome to Barthmobile. I know Richard's coach and it was well cared for. Use only an inertia controller for electric brake controller, do not skimp on cost, get a good one. I installed a Primus by Tekonsha, used it for over 100,000 miles worked well in a dual axle trailer. This installation is on a 30' Breakaway.

Enjoy see ya around!
