How to Release Atwood Surge Coupler Breakaway Lever


I forgot to take off the safety cable after unhooking my trailer and tripped the cable. How do I reset the cable on this hitch?


Expert Reply:

If you have a partial application or full application of the breakaway cable, you will need to fully release the cable. I spoke with my contact at Atwood and he stated that you will need to seat the cable back into the actuator by feeding it through where it exits the coupler. The cable is attached to the push rod assembly and the cable has to be fed back through so the push rod can be properly released into the master cylinder. The cable actually attaches inside the brake fluid reservoir and loops through the end of the push rod.
