    I have the same thing but I fail to see how that is connected to my post regarding a service brake trolley handle that sends air to the trailer service brakes.

    I had a red Airline break and I put the blue on the red side and duck taped the hand valve down. ..... didn't have any trailer brakes but was empty and 7 miles from home so not that big of a deal and I was on a 2 lane road at a stop sign so even moving it to a safe spot would be better than staying there

    How'd you block the red glad hand from losing all your air....
    If red button is pulled and trailer brakes still come on your tractor supply valve is toast :/

    The handle in the 579’s won’t stay applied, at least mine won’t.

    So in order to check brake lights, you have to use the dash switch.

    While everyone else is carrying their duffles trying to get their evening shower, one driver goes up to the cashier to complain about the parking lot being full. Free parking FCFS.
