    No brake controller is not a factory defect, but pre-wire might be

    Let’s hope the increased production and “massive overtime” with 3 shifts building them do not add to the problems.

    I believe this is normal operation, it's been crappy here, and the defroster has been on auto, so I think that is the culprit.

    Let's take a few days to see if it reoccurs. If not I'll mark it solved.
