damage to the coupler.
Make sure the actuator is secure. If unsure, extend
the trailer tongue jack to the ground and lift (with the
jack) the car and trailer combination approximately
2” to 4”. If the ball does not disengage and remains

To prevent back injury, DO NOT PHYSICALLY
LIFT the trailer tongue when loaded.
A.   Hitching Trailer
Before towing,  the trailer must  be properly hitched  to
the tow vehicle.
The safety pin, provided with the trailer, or a pad-
lock must be inserted completely in the coupler
latch hole. This ensures the coupler’s locking latch
remains in the locked position during towing of the
trailer.  Use of a padlock will help to deter theft.
To ensure  proper engagement of  the actua-
tor’s coupler  to the tow  ball, DO  NOT use a
multi-piece ball,  an  incorrectly sized  ball, or
a  worn/damaged  ball.   Please  refer  to  the
trailer’s certification plate, cou pler or actua tor
on the trailer  for Gross Vehicle Weight Rating
(GVWR) or visit our website at www.fourwinns.
com. Trailers with a GVWR of 7000 pounds or
below require a 2” tow ball and trailers above
a GVWR of 7000 pounds require a 2 5/16” tow
Connect actuator  break-away  cable  S-hook se-
curely to one of the tow vehicle hitch’s safety chain
connection points.  Do not connect S-hook  to the
safety cables  or chains.  The  cable should hang
clear of trailer tongue and be long enough to permit
short radius turns without  pulling the break-away
cable. DO NOT loop the break-away cable around
a bracket and loop it back onto itself.
If the break-away system is accidently applied while
unhitching, insert a flat-bladed screwdriver into the
slot of the break-away catch hole under the actua-
tor  and pry down to release.  See Figure S14.
Position actuator ball socket above ball hitch.
Open the coupler latch fully to allow the ball latch
to rotate open.  Note: You will have to remove the
safety pin from the coupler latch hole to fully extend
the coupler latch. The coupler latch will remain up
to indicate that it is not yet attached to the ball. See
Figure S5.
