My trailer won't back up...
« on: July 14, 2017, 01:29:25 PM »

Now, all of a sudden my trailer won't back up. I've checked the fuses and relay in the truck. Anyone know what to try next? At least a bypass to get the boat out of the weather...thanks for your speedy reply.

Surge brakes. Could have seized bearing or brakes binding causing it. Any way to lock the brake piston at the tongue of the trailer?

does it have the A60 hitch? If so, you can lodge something between that pin and the tounge in the slot and back it up...

You need to check your relay under the hood as well as fuses inside.

Also check to see if you have power at your plug (truck side) when in reverse, if so then the problem lies in the wiring on the trailer.

If you have surge bakes, check to see if back up lights work, its the same blue wire. My trailer came with a key, kind of a half circle with holder that can be inserted in slot on tongue so surge bake cannot come on. Good trailer wirinng pic on E trailer site

Used a 9/16" socket and tape to block surge and was able to get it inside. Now I gotta figure out where the solenoid is and replace it. Where should I look? Many thanks for all your help!
