    From the front of the tractor, all the way to the back of the trailer, there are air and electrical lines that control the pneumatic brake system and the electricity needed to power the lights and other auxiliary applications on the trailer, such as liftgates. However, it's important to protect the cables that link the tractor and trailer’s air and electrical lines together, as they are a key component of the truck whether it's pulling a load or not.

    By spec’ing, properly installing, and maintaining the cables that link the tractor to the trailer, you can ensure an uninterrupted ride and avoid the pitfalls that lead to downtime with the strongest link possible for your set-up.

    When it comes to electric system troubleshooting, the multimeter is your best friend. The device combines all the features of a voltmeter, ohmmeter and ammeter into one.

    Before you plug in the multimeter, let’s do a quick review of some of basic electricity terms. Electricity has three basic units: voltage, current and resistance. Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps, and resistance is measured in ohms. Using water flowing as an analogy, think of voltage as water pressure, current as the rate at which the water is flowing and resistance as the size of the pipe.
