I figured it was something common but just not sure how it connected on the trailer side before I purchase something. I'm imagining something that just screws into a port with the glad hand on the other side but having never been up close to one not certain.Looks like a common 18 wheeler interconnect air line made by Velvac.
Thanks for the offer but I think I'm going to wait until I get it home to delve into it. It could be the line was just folded over in the pic or it could be missing the end. Best to get it all figured out before I start ordering parts.If you need some air lines, I can send them out today if you get back with me within an hour or so, if not I can get them out tomorrow. I had the same issue and had some cut air lines of two of them that I purchased. After new lines, the brakes worked great.
I'm going to take some plug in lights with me too (just have to figure how to hook them up to the 12v plug) that way I have a back up in case the intervehicle cable is no good or missing from the bed when I get there.Just remember to check your trailer lights output on your truck! I didn't when I picked up a 1082 out of Ft Leonardwood and found out I only had a left blinker signal working.
I'm trying to stay as close to "in service" as possible for shows and such. Since I see camo trucks pulling tan trailers all the time I figured that was the correct combinationMark, as I have followed your posts on the M1078, I am having trouble imagining a tan trailer with a camo truck. Everything you do is detailed so well. Please tell me you plan to paint the trailer to match the truck! Oh, just so you know, we will all let you wait until you get it home!
BTW, congrats on the purchase.
You may want to post your needs in this thread.I bought two of these but have not picked them up. One in KY and the other in NC. Anyone have any estimates to have these things transported?
