When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. With surge brake systems, the actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward while the tow vehicle slows. The actuator telescopes, applying force to its master cylinder, which in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage the trailer's brakes.

Because this model does not include a reverse lockout, it is recommended that you equip your trailer with free-backing brakes so that you can drive in reverse without triggering your trailer's brakes.

They do make a lot of noise because of the loose hook up, which does not matter in construction or agriculture applications. The banging of the pintle connection can be very hard on your tow vehicle. I would recommend to use a ball hitch with your boat trailer. If you let me know the type of tow vehicle you are using and...

  • How to Prevent Hydraulic Surge Coupler From Activating Trailer Brakes
    Trailers can be equipped with a surge coupler that has a reverse lockout feature to disengage hydraulic brakes to allow backing up. This reverse lockout feature can be electric, as on actuator coupler adding # T4748800, or it can be manual as on part # T63FR. Either way the reverse lockout prevents the surge coupler from sending hydraulic fluid to the brakes, which allows the trailer to be backed up without the brakes engaging.
