Trailer brake problems

669 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

Mine have an electric cut off that work off of the reverse lights. It has a flat 5 plug on the trailer. The extra slot is to disengage the brakes when in reverse.
