The inertia sense type controllers work very well in a bus. Doesn't matter what is slowing the bus down since braking inertia
is telling the brake controller to apply power to the trailer brakes until inertia lightens.
Don't the inertial type controllers only activate the trailer brakes if the brake pedal is depressed, or am I wrong?
My brake lights are 12 volt so they are activated by a relay already since the bus is 24 volt. I'm not sure if the Jake activates the brake lights. Newer trucks and buses activate the brake lights with the Jake, but I have no idea if my 1995 is new enough for that.
Do the interial type controllers causse any jerking of the trailer. My travel trailer that weighed as much as my F350 never stopped smoothly with a Tekonsha Prodigy. I finally upgraded to a Brakesmart and trailer braked great.
