towed vehicle's brake system.
(13) Rear Service Coupling.
When towing another vehicle, this
coupling is connected to the towed vehicle so that the brake systems
of the two vehicles work together.
(14) Spring Brake Reservoir. Stores enough air pressure to release
secondary air system failure.
(15) Pedal Valve. Allows air pressure from the secondary constant
pressure system to flow into the secondary signal system when the
operator depresses the pedal.
