Light control made easy
Before driving with a trailer or rear cycle carrier the driver must check the function of the lights of the vehicle combination. If there is no one else in the vicinity, it will be difficult for the driver to brake and stand behind the trailer or bike carrier simultaneously.
The new UCC2 control unit generation with integrated check function from Westfalia, which is used in conjunction with CAN-BUS wiring kits, can help.
How does the new additional function work? The trailer or cycle carrier must be connected to the vehicle and the electrics must be hooked up. The driver turns on the ignition of the vehicle and presses the brake twice shortly one after another. The control unit is now in standby mode. This starts the function test after 3 seconds and stops after 20 sequences. The indicators, reverse, brake, rear fog and reversing lights of the trailer illuminate one after the other. The driver can therefore check behind the vehicle to see if all the lights are working. A short instruction manual, which is enclosed with the wiring kit, explains the individual steps.
