What is the weight of this camper?
Does the breaking system lock when power is not applied to the system?
According to the 1990 brochure, they state a dry weight on a T243 single rear bed option as 3,210#. With battery and LP gas you are little over 3,300#. Assuming you have some kind of camping gear inside, It could be 3,500# to around 4,000#
Go to the files section and download a copy. See the top of the forum, for a tab called FILES. Click it and go to brochures. Scroll to 1990 and download a brochure. Your camper shows up on page 12 of the PDF file.
On the brakes, they are 12 volt power energized. It will roll with no power applied. To turn them on you need to apply power from the brake controller in the truck or pulling the emergency breakaway cable on the camper with a charged battery in the camper.
Hope this helps and good luck. Pic's would be cool with it setup on your neat mountain area.
