Trailer brake problems

670 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Bigwater
Need some help. I've got a one year old tandem axle aluminum trailer, made out of state, that won't back up all the time. It backs fine on smooth surfaces like boat ramps, but when I hit any rough spot or back for more than 35 feet, the brakes lock up. By rough I mean an easy gravel drive or concrete to grass transition. Its making me crazy. I don't have alot of time to trouble shoot as there isn't enough daylight as it is, to get important things take care of. Any ideas as to a cause and fix, or someone in west or nw houston to take it to?-Tom

hose the connection down with WD40. That selenoid has to be on to back up and if you lose power to it, the brakes will lock. The bump of changing surfaces is what is causing it to not work right.
