Some surge type brakes have a solenoid that hooks up to your back-up lights so the brakes don't lock up in reverse.

Bob

Your trailer connector probably has a "backup wire". It should be connected to your backup lights.

If your tow vehicle does NOT have backup lights wired to the connector, you can hook it (through a disconnect) to the tail lights. That way you can turn on your tail lights AND HOOKUP UP THE DISCONNECT when you need to back up. Otherwise keep the disconnect disconnected.

Beware: When the backup signal is energized, YOU HAVE NO TRAILER BRAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don

P.S. Get it done right as soon as possible.

Thanks guys, it has surge disc braker and works off the backup lights ...constant elec thru the blue wire at the truck and solenoid may have a bad ground or be corroded on the trailer end...time to let the pros do their magic...info: best recommendations so far (3) seem to point toward West Coast Trailer in Huntington Beach..so, off we go....at least the boat is running good....

You could check out Wallstrong Trailers,,,In Gardena on Figuora. Near the 91, 405 and 110 freeways. Good Luck.

Yup ! Bob at Wallstrong set me up. I have a Pacific dual axel and I am able to back up my trailer uphill. I have surge drum brakes.

My 1993 boat and trailer are at Wallstrongs to get new disc brakes and backup solenoid to replace old drums. I recommend them, Bob has never steered me wrong.

Turns out that my blue wire from the truck connectiong to the trailer blue wire connector, has a constant current going thru it...truck was a former city vehicle and probably constant wired for trailers with electronic brakes...a rewire to the taillights should fix the problem..West Coast isn't set up to do trucks, so, I may be off to Wallstrongs if I can't do it myself...thanks for all the good advice..ps....West Coast did a good job on the trailer tuneup...
