2001 Four Winns Funship 214 234 264 Boat Owners Manual

To use your lockout,  check that no force is  being ap-
plied to the actuator.   This is achieved by  positioning
the towing vehicle and  the trailer on a flat  service, or
with the trailer downhill from the  tow vehicle.  Set the
vehicle’s parking brake.
Check lug nuts for proper tightness.
Check tie-downs and make sure boat is secured to
the trailer.
Rotate the lockout assembly forward and up. See Fig-
ure S14.  Then  push it rearward, so the pin  ends will
rest in the notches in the sides of the outer case. The
actuator is now “locked out” and will not apply any no-
ticeable pressure to the trailer brakes as you back up.
If you can not rotate the assembly  forward enough to
reach the notch, make sure the actuator’s coupler case
assembly is pulled fully forward out of the outer case.
Before towing, close and secure all hatches, doors,
andwindows.  Securelystoreallequipmentandcan-
vas.  Installed tops,  side curtains, and aft curtains
can be damaged while towing.
Carry a spare tire for both the trailer and towing ve-
hicle. On  extended trips, carry spare  wheel bear-
ings, seals, and races. Be sure and carry the proper
tools to complete the repairs.
To avoid bearing failure and possible wheel loss,
keep wheel bearings properly lubricated. Insp-
ect the wheel bearings periodically and  check
for damage.

Trailer components may  be different between
models and may change during the model year.

Install outside rear view mirrors on both sides of the
towing vehicle to  improve vision.   Check the rear
view mirrors at frequent intervals to be sure  trailer
and boat are riding smoothly.
Check tires for proper inflation. Under-inflated tires
heat up rapidly and may blowout  or cause uncon-
trolled swaying. Also, make sure lug nuts are tight.
Allow at least one car and trailer length between ve-
hicles for each 10 mph. DO NOT tailgate.
Be sure the  coupler is secured to  the trailer hitch
and safety chains are attached.
Use low gear (on manual transmissions) when trav-
eling up steep hills or over sand, gravel, or dirt roads.

Use care if shifting  to a lower gear while traveling
downhill.   This could  activate  the trailer’s  surge
brakes for the duration of the downhill run and cause
overheating.  Extended overheating could result in
complete loss of the trailer brakes.
