As you all know going boating means that there are all kinds of things to try and remember. Checklists etc
My issue is when I am trailering and there comes a need to reverse eg. reversing into my yard, some idiot gets in the way, or I need to turn around, I am so consumed with the task of reversing safely, that I completely forget that I have to get out and move the security pin in the coupler to lock out the surge brakes.
When I forget, am I going any permanent damage to the surge brakes if I back up, other than premature wear of the pads?
Also is there a way of getting around this issue, or is this just the nature of the beast with surge drum brakes.
I have a dual axle trailer, and the electrical hook up is a flat 4 pin.
Or is the only fix to post a post-it on my dashboard to remind me every time?
