When Would Free Backing Trailer Brake Assemblies be Needed on Trailer


How can I tell if I need the free backing style or the other style? I dont have to do anything to my surge coupler when backing, but I also dont see any wires to the coupler or brakes.


Expert Reply:

If your surge coupler does not have a manual or electric reverse lock out like what you described a set of free-backing plates is what you'd want to allow the trailer to back up without locking the brakes up.

The part # AKFBBRK-35 would be correct set to go with if your axle is a 3,500 lb axle.
