until the  latch engages and  is properly seated.   The
safety pin, provided with the trailer, or a padlock must
be inserted completely  in the forward coupler latch
hole. This helps ensure the coupler’s latch remains in
the locked position during towing of the  trailer.  Refer
to Section S-3 Operation for additional information on
couplers and hitching to the tow vehicle.
Be sure dirt,  sand, ice, etc., does not  obstruct
the proper seating of the lock pin.
When raising or lowering the jack, prevent the caster
from rotating while cranking.  Make sure the jack is
planted on a firm and level surface before unhitching
the trailer.
Anti-sway  devices  as used  on  recreational
vehicles  (RV’s) are  not  applicable  to surge
brake systems and should not be used on Four
Winns® trailers.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the boat

The brakes could activate when traveling down-
hill.  Always use a fixed hitch.

D.   Surge Brakes & Coupling Assembly
Surge brakes are standard on the F series model trailers
manufactured by Four  Winns.  Surge  brakes operate
automatically when  the tow  vehicle’s  brakes are  ap-
plied.  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 coupler.  The master cylinder supplies hydraulic
pressure through the hydraulic system which activates
the trailer’s disc brakes.  See Figure S5.  Please  refer
to the manufacturer’s literature included in your owner’s
packet for further details regarding operation and main-

circuit for each wire.
To hitch the trailer to the tow vehicle, place the coupler
latch in the  open position to unlock  the coupler.   See
Figure S5. Push down on the coupler latch to lock  the
