Default MYCO Trailer Brakes Paired To 2011 F250

Hey guys I replaced my 2004 Chevy Dually with a 2011 Ford F-250 and have a question regarding the trailer brakes. The trailer has a electric over hydraulic setup with a Titan actuator. The truck has the electric or electric over hydraulic option on the display panel. When you select electric over hydraulic the trailer brakes are not working. What do I need to do to get them working properly? Thanks in advance!

I added a titan pump to my trailer, the issue I had on my 05 is it wouldn't activate sitting still, but when Im pulling it above 20mph it works fine, my ECM needs to sense a load before it will apply 12 vdc to the trailer hitch pin, dont know if thats your issue or not.

Thanks for the tip! After you posted this I did more research and hooked the truck back up. I manually activated the brakes via the controller and they work. Sounds like the voltage to the pump etc is greatly reduced under 10 mph. Thanks again!

Hey Mike, you may find that adding this to the trailer will help:

Read some of the stories on their website.


It emulates the trailer being a straight electric brake setup.
I had one for the trailer that I never installed, as I never needed to tow it with my buddy's 2014 Ford. But I had it just incase. I sent it to Lucky Strike Jr. after you bought my setup.

Let's see the new truck! What color?

Not sure how to post pics but it is a white crew cab short bed. It is a Lariat and has the display on the gauge panel and allows you to change from electric to electric over hydraulic. Wonder if I would still need this since it has the ability to change? Thanks for the info!
