New to this forum or any forum so forgive my ignorance. I haven't had this boat long and have never owned a boat more than 15'. This boat is an 18' ranger 1984 375V with a 150 mercury. Boat weighs 1200, engine 400 and the trailer is a double axle with what I've been told are surge brakes. The guy that told me I might as well disconnect the brakes says they will "all" eventually freeze up or partially freeze up. I understand that you have to brake fairly hard to make this system work. I'm not noticing much difference when I brake fairly hard or hard.
Is the system easy to adjust?
How do you adjust it?
Is it true that most usually freeze up or partially freeze up?
Are most surge brakes disconnected?
I know I asked too many questions but if someone could just give me some general information that would be great..JP
