Implements & Attachments Find everything related to operating, servicing and maintaining that loader, mower, blade, snow blower, tiller, hitch or scraper, right here. I have had it happen with a loaded utility trailer since I hadn't noticed the wear in the hitch, but the chains took care of it.
However, my current wife happened to be separated from her husband and he, with a car full of kids had a trailer with back-hoe on it come from the other lane and hit them head on. A couple years ago I was following a 5th wheel travel trailer pulling about a 18ft aluminum fishing boat. FYI, a nit pick point of clarity here, surge brakes need a ball pushing on the coupler to work. I agree with you though that with good equipment you should never need a breakaway, hopefully.
Surge Brakes on a trailer are also hydraulic brakes and work very much the same-with one difference. Important: the surge actuator slide must be pulled and pushed (full stroke) to create pressure and bleed air from system when making repairs or tests. If none of the brakes work, remove the master cylinder cap and look inside to see if there is any brake fluid in the reservoir.
If brake fluid exists in the system, a process of elimination is needed to find why the brakes aren’t working.
To test the master cylinder, remove the brake line or hose from the rear of the master cylinder located on the surge actuator. Remove the brake line from a wheel cylinder, and have an assistant pump the master cylinder using the lever. If you have proven the master cylinder is working, the orifice isn’t clogged, and the brake tubing is clear, the wheel cylinder should operate when the master cylinder is engaged using the lever. If the brakes work on even one wheel, it would indicate the master cylinder and orifice are ok. Use an electric solenoid valve that allows the brake fluid to bypass back to the reservoir while in reverse.
Use a mechanical pin to prevent the surge actuator from compressing and building up pressure. The following pictures show two common types of brake assemblies used on surge brake drum brakes. The surge actuator slide assembly has mechanically jammed (stuck) in the compressed position, and will not allow the master cylinder piston to return to it’s relaxed position-thus preventing the fluid from returning to the reservoir and releasing the brakes. The steel push rod that pushes the master cylinder piston is adjusted too long or is bent- and will not allow the master cylinder piston to return to it’s relaxed position-thus allowing the fluid to return to the reservoir and releasing the brakes. A very simple test to perform before you travel on a trip, or after the trailer has been sitting for awhile is to hook the trailer to you truck as you would normally. Based in Centreville, Maryland, Centreville Manufacturing builds stock and custom trailers to fit a variety of needs for the residential, rental, government, military and business market.

When selecting trailer brake components for your trailer, consider the weight of trailer fully loaded with all cargo and equipment. ELECTRIC OVER HYDRAULIC BRAKE SYSTEMS: The electric over hydraulic system is a very adaptable means of supplying robust braking power for a wide range of towing applications.
View DetailsThe AERO-6000 actuator is intended for use on recreational, marine, and agricultural occasional-us trailes, which are towed by passenger cars or pickups.

The Model 66 Actuator is completely assembled and ready to bolt into place (Tongue sizes: 3"x3", 3"x4" & 3"x5").
Hydraulic brake lines should be installed on the trailer as described in the installation manual supplied with the brakes. Tie Down's actuators feature a shock dampener that uses brake fluid from the master cylinder.
Check with your state motor vehicle department for laws concerning minimum trailer brake requirements. The vehicle, towing hitch and ball must have a rating equal to or greater than trailer GVWR.
Connect safety cables or chains using crossed pattern under tongue, or follow trailer manufacturer's directions. The breakaway system is designed to only operate after the trailer detaches from the tow vehicle and the safety chains have failed.
Equalizing or weight distributing hitches may be used, allow six to eight inches free chain length.


DANGER: Tongue weight beyond rating limits will interfere with performance of actuator, and braking system, and the tow vehicle. Actuator and brakes should always be flushed with fresh water after using trailer in corrosive conditions. In the event that the breakaway system is used, check all system components (cable, S-hooks, etc.) for proper working order. AVOID sharp turns, which can cause the actuator to bind or jackknife against the tow vehicle or cause a bend in the tongue.
Failure to install the hitch pin before towing can result in accidental opening of the coupler hitch latch which can lead to the trailer coming off of the hitch ball causing serious damage, injury or death. A minimum of 5% tongue weight and a maximum 10% tongue weight of the trailer GVWR must be located on the hitch ball.
A loose fit between the coupler and hitch ball can cause the actuator and hitch ball to separate, causing serious damage, injury or death. Brake laws sometimes are minimum standards and you may wish to add additional brakes to your trailer.

The hitch came out of the receiver lucky for the owner the boat shot to the right into a rock cut and was now a 14ft boat. These troubleshooting tips assume a person is familiar and equipped with jacking and supporting safety stands, brake tools, seal and bearing inspection techniques, shoe, drum, rotor inspections, and knows how to adjust, fill and bleed brakes.
This heavy duty unit shows shock absorbers on the bottom prevents the slide from jerking front to back during stop and go movements. Its job is to dampen the response of the trailer brakes, and here’s why: Let’s say you were towing a trailer downhill, and were applying steady brake pressure on the truck brakes to maintain speed (to prevent the rig from gaining downhill speed). If your trailer ever came loose from the tow vehicle while underway, the breakaway system will activate the brakes on the trailer to slow it down and stop it-hopefully preventing an accident.
The slide will offer resistance due to the orifice and shock absorbers, so expect to stroke it with effort. It is possible the brake shoes are worn completely out, or if drum brakes are greatly out of adjustment. This pin is supposed to be used when backing up only, but if left installed can prevent the brakes from operating-even if traveling in forward. It requires the operator to manually open the bypass valve when in reverse, but to remember to close the valve before towing in forward motion.
What causes this is the brake fluid pressure cannot release and travel back to the reservoir due to a mechanical or hydraulic problem. Energize the brakes while parked by pulling on the breakaway system cable or chain until it latches. Innovation and customer service drive the company to provide top quality trailers for sale. For multi-axle trailers, consider how many axles will be equipped with brakes to meet your stopping requirements. Trailer surge brakes consist of a hydraulic coupler or ACTUATOR, hydraulic BRAKE TUBING, backing plate assemblies or FOUNDATION BRAKES, and brake DRUM & HUB assemblies.

When it got to the end of the slack in the pig tail it pull back to the right and jump off a bank sticking the tongue in the ground like a arrow.
The harder you push the pump with your foot, the more pressure you generate, thus the harder the brakes shoes are forced against the rotor or drum to stop you. Check each wheel that has brakes, as it is possible for some of the brakes to work, but not all of them.

The absence of brake fluid-especially for any length of time allows rust to form in the entire system-including the steel brake line tubing. We recommend you remove the brake drum and visually inspect the shoe linings.While the brake drum is off, have an assistant manually operate the brake system using the breakaway lever. This orifice is very, very small-perhaps as small as the diameter of one strand of hair on your head and can easily clog with debris. If brake fluid is being pumped thru the line, the master cylinder, orifice and brake line seem to be working, so assume the wheel cylinder(s) should be suspect at this point. Although you really can’t bench test the wheel cylinder, you can peel back and remove the rubber boot to look for rust or corrosion that would prove a stuck piston. If for instance you were backing up on soft grass or mud, (or uphill) the trailer really doesn’t want to back up easily, but must be forced by the truck. Some trailer axle manufacturers can accommodate converting from one type of brake system to another without major modifications.
Fresh water is bad enough, but salt water is extra tough on the brakes, bearings, seals, drums, rotors, etc. With a desire help customer on an ongoing basis, Centreville Manufacturing has local trailer parts stores serving customers in Maryland & Virginia and online trailer parts store serving customers nationwide. Also, to get the most benefit from your brake system, follow the instructions for care and maintenance in the installation and service manual included with your purchase. A more recently available alternative to drum & shoe systems are the marine grade DISC BRAKE assemblies.

Thankfully nobody was hurt but it could have went the other way and been a very ugly wreck. It has a master cylinder built into it, but instead of using your foot to operate it, it uses the weight and the momentum of the trailer to do the pumping. Since the chain or cable is attached to the tow vehicle, if the trailer come loose from the truck the cable pulls the lever energizing the trailer brakes.
Rust is the enemy as it creates rough surfaces inside the wheel and master cylinder bores destroying the piston seals.
Engage the master cylinder using the lever to see if it forces a fine stream of brake fluid thru the orifice fitting. This is the second most common method, usually seen on boat trailers more than other types of trailers.
Both systems work by the "surge" or "push" of the trailer toward the tow vehicle during deceleration which automatically synchronizes the trailer brakes with the tow vehicle brakes. The electronic signal is generated by an inertial brake controller of the type typically used with electric trailer brakes. Neither had the fail safe cable on them and I never took enough time to closely research how the surge brakes operated to even know they were supposed to. The minute the trailer brakes release, the trailer begins pushing on the decelerating truck again, causing the brakes to apply. A latch mechanism keeps the lever in the energized mode even if the breakaway chain or cable is ripped away by the separation of the truck and trailer. Rust particles will also flow around with the brake fluid and eventually will plug up the orifice (see orifice photo).
If not, the wheel cylinder may be frozen, or the master cylinder is not pumping, or the orifice may be clogged. If not, remove the orifice fitting, and then test it again by engaging the master cylinder.
This system usually uses a 5 pin flat plug trailer wiring connector instead of a standard 4 pin electrical connector. This kit allows you to hook up a garden hose to the brakes and flush salt water out with clean tap water extending the life of the brakes and running gear on a boat trailer. The lever mechanically pushes the master cylinder piston to generate emergency brake fluid pressure, and the latch assures that the pressure is maintained until the latch is disengaged manually by using tools. In some cases it is possible to hone the cylinder bores, and replace the seals to rebuild them, but usually the bores are pitted beyond repair. If it now pumps fluid, hold the orifice up to a strong source of light and see if you can see thru it. Boat trailers don’t get used as much as other types of trailers, making them even more prone to brake problems due to rotted seals, corrosion, etc.
The harder the trailer tries to push the truck, the more pressure the surge actuator builds up. The restrictor orifice dampens the on-off pulsing effect by slowing down the travel of brake fluid from master cylinder to wheel cylinder and back.
The breakaway system can be helpful in performing tests and even for bleeding the brakes, so understand it and use it to help you keep your brakes in top shape.
Even though the brakes on the trailer are not connected directly to the brake pedal in your truck, what you do with your foot in the truck is indirectly telling the trailer brakes what to do.
If the clog is on the wheel cylinder side of the orifice fitting, it creates problems when the brakes try to release, because it prevents the flow of brake fluid back to the master cylinder reservoir) If the master cylinder won’t pump in all of these tests, it needs replacement.
Disc brakes generate full braking power in reverse, therefore a reverse lockout solenoid or ball valve should be installed at the actuator before installation of disc brakes. The VENTED Trailer Disc Brake assemblies from 'Tie Down Engineering' offer the following advanced features: New Black E-Coat Finish provides double corrosion protection on hot dipped galvanized hubs and aluminum calipers, and floating pads with metal backing plate. Maximum braking effort is applied to the trailer brakes in the event the trailer becomes uncoupled from the tow vehicle. Each retail box is for one wheel, includes mounting bracket, hardware and complete installation instructions.
