We fitted our first ATC system for a while this week.
These are a fantastic system - for those that don't know, ATC stands for Al-ko Trailer Control. This is an active system that mounts behind the axle of a caravan and monitors the trailer movement. If it detects a 'snake' developing, it activates the trailer's brakes which has the effect of pulling the outfit straight.
This system is so effective that most of the big insurance companies offer a substantial discount if it's fitted.
Well I was so impressed with the system that I fitted it to my own van when I bought it 3 years ago.
So this was the van - a 2010 Swift Challenger.
First to jack it up and and make secure.
And soon the main unit was fitted and the brake bar adjusted...
Wiring run and connected into vehicle loom...
Status LED fitted to A-frame...
Fully tested and finally ATC sticker applied...
Another customer that is now safer on the road!
Total cost to customer is £600 inc VAT - money well spent in my opinion!
