For boat models with the Surge BrakeActuator and Cou-
plingAssembly shown in Figure S6, lift the release handle
to unlock the coupler. Push down on the release handle/
locking lever to lock the trailer to the ball hitch. The lock-
ing pin, provided with  the trailer, or a padlock must  be
inserted  in the  locking  lever hole.  This  ensures  the
coupler’s locking lever remains in the locked position dur-
ing towing of the trailer.  Refer to Section S-3 Operation
for additional information on couplers and hitching to the
tow vehicle.
Surge disc brakes are available on model trailers manu-
facturedbyFourWinns.   Surge disc brakesoperateauto-
matically when  the tow  vehicle’s brakes are  applied.
When the tow vehicle slows down or stops, the forward
momentum or “surge” of the trailer against the hitch ball
applies pressure to a master cylinder in the trailer cou-
pler.  The master cylinder supplies hydraulic pressure
through the hydraulic system which activatesthetrailer’s
disc brakes.  See Figures S5 and S6.  Please refer to
the manufacturer’s literature included in your owner’s
packet for further details regarding operation and main-
Anti-sway devices as used on recreational vehi-
cles (RV’s) are not applicable to surge brake sys-
tems and should  not be used on  Four Winns®
The benefits  of  disc brakes  in comparison  to  drum
Fewer moving parts.
Longer life due to fewer moving parts.
Friction pads are easily accessible.
Easy access to caliper for cleaning and mainte-
DO NOT use a trailer hitch with moving parts. The
brakes could activate when traveling downhill. Al-
ways use a fixed hitch.
Calipers are self-adjusting allowing smoother
braking operation.
If the brakes are wet from loading, travel at a slow speed
and apply the brakes on your towing vehicle several times
to “dry” out the trailer brakes.
Braking performance less likely to be
affected by dirt, water, or rust contamination.
Fade resistant.
