I'm at the dealership this morning and the tell me there is a flash for the ITBM in my 2015 Ram 1500. I'm trying to attach the print out they gave me with the specifics. Hopefully this may help someone else having some of these issues.

Interesting, the symptom/concern description. I can't wait to get my tug out of storage, get the update and through a scope on the brake line wire. Crossing my fingers this fixes what they broke so I can get the P2 out of the way, keeps hitting my leg/knee on entry/exit.

I did as well as it states the issue is with those that hooo up there trailer before the vehicle is started. I truly hope this fixes the issue and let us know what you find out Boss when you get up and running in the spring. My trailer is in for service in Lansing and will hopefully be getting it back here in the near future. I will post any seat of the pants changes I notice when I get it back. Before the update, I could not lock up the trailer tires with the slider bar. I wonder if that will change.

Since the TSB (posted above) was released mid-October of last year and the TSB states MY15 and MY16, I think it is safe to assume your MY17 build is current.

Every time I hooked up the engine was running so the rear air leveling system could do its thing. I never heard what the issue was with hooking the electrical with engine off until now, didn't even know it made a difference. But then again, never heard anyone say the braking improved after a few brake applies either.

I wonder if it is just some CYA verbiage to escape possible liability.

This is good news. I may have to call my dealer and see if they have received this tsb and schedule a visit.

We tow an 8,000 pound 5th wheel with our 2016 ram 2500. I had to put the system on "heavy electric" with the gain up to about 8-9 but it seems top work fine. However, this doesn't correspond to the owners manual information. It should work well on light electric. Guess I need an update.

At 8000 pounds your 5th wheel probably doesn't have the size brakes that require more voltage like others in here.
