Explaination
After coupling, make sure that the air lines are not crossed. To do this, send air to the trailer brakes by adjusting the "air supply" knob to normal. Let the pressure normalize. Then turn off the engine and test the brakes. You should see and hear the brakes in action and then see the air pressure normalize again.
