Towing Options

Post by zukiman » Sun Dec 27, 2015 1:27 am

Hello. I have installed the iDatalink Maestro with a Kenwood DNN992 head unit in 1 2014 Ram 3500. I had several options available in the Uconnect 5.0 that allowed me to change my trailer settings that I cannot find in the new radio. Also I had a tilt mirror in reverse option that I can no longer find. This is from the Owners Manual:

Trailer Brake

• Trailer Select
When this feature is selected, the Trailer Type can be
selected between “Trailer 1”, “Trailer 2”, “Trailer 3” and
“Trailer 4”. To make your selection, scroll up or down
until the preferred setting is highlighted, then press and
release the SELECT button until a check-mark appears
next to the setting, showing that the setting has been
selected.

• Trailer Brake Type
When this feature is selected, the Trailer Brake Type can
be changed between “Light Electric”, “Heavy Electric”,
“Light EOH” and “Heavy EOH”. To make your selection,
scroll up or down until the preferred setting is highlighted,
then press and release the SELECT button until a
check-mark appears next to the setting, showing that the
setting has been selected. Refer to “Integrated Trailer
Brake Module” in “Starting And Operating.”

• Trailer Name
When this feature is selected, the Trailer name can be
selected from 16 names. To make your selection, scroll up
or down until the preferred setting is highlighted, then
press and release the SELECT button until a check-mark
appears next to the setting, showing that the setting has
been selected.

Tilt Mirrors In Reverse
When this feature is selected, the outside sideview mirrors
will tilt downward when the ignition is in the RUN
position and the transmission shift lever is in the REVERSE
position. The mirrors will move back to their
previous position when the transmission is shifted out of
REVERSE. To make your selection, touch the Tilt Mirrors
In Reverse soft-key, until a check-mark appears next to
setting, showing that setting has been selected. Touch the
back arrow soft-key to return to the previous menu.

Can you tell me where these options are now? Th trailer settings are pretty important since I tow several types of trailers.

Thank you!

We have one other user experiencing similar issues, so the engineer is already looking into it. As soon as I get word on a firmware update, I will post here.

Update/Follow-up question: Do you have all of your other menus, such as lock, safety, and lights settings? I just want to make sure we're chasing the correct issue here.

I now have all the settings. I reflashed the Maestro and was able to find it in the vehicle settings tab.

Everything seems to be working fine but I have two identical "light electric" trailer options instead of the single option that was OEM

It's a firmware bug; One of them should say Heavy Electric. The engineer is aware, and will be updating the firmware within the next few days.
