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
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,
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
Figure S14: Brake Lockout Mechanism
Before trailering, inspect the bearings for wear and
adequate lubrication. When traveling, check the
wheel hubs during stops at gas stations, restaurants
or other places. If the hub feels abnormally hot, the
bearing should be inspected before continuing the
Trailer components may be different between
models and may change during the model year.
Be sure to read all manufacturer’s literature sup-
plied with your Four Winns® trailer.

Be sure to check the towing vehicle manufactu-
rer’s literature for recommendations on towing.
Before trailering, the trailer should be inspected for the
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.
Be sure trailer taillights and turning signals are
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.
Check the brakes for proper operation prior to de-
