2011 Four Winns F-Series Boat Owners Manual

Avoid sharp turns. This could bend, create ex-
treme stress or  fracture either the actuator  or
trailer tongue.
Be sure to check for obstacles or persons be-
hind the trailer before backing up. Also, adjust
your mirrors for clear  view of the area behind
the trailer.
Figure S16: Reverse Manual Brake Lockout
If the  trailer is  to be uncoupled  from the  tow ve-
hicle after  backing,  block  all trailer  wheels  and
pull forward slightly to take strain off the actuator.
Uncouple the actuator by lifting the release handle
and raise the trailer tongue with the jack.
Never allow  the bolt or screwdriver  to re-
main in the reverse  lockout position hole.
After  reverse maneuvering,  always   remove
bolt or  screwdriver from  the reverse  lockout
position hole. Failure to remove bolt or screw-
driver from  reverse lockout position  hole will
prevent forward movement braking which can
result  in serious  property damage,  injury  or
For most trailering  conditions, the brake actuator  will
allow you to back up normally using a 5-wire harness
connector.   However, if the  coupler is not  wired or if
there is a  failure the trailer can  still be backed up  by
using the manual brake lockout.
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.
Trailer components may be  different between
models and may change during the model year.
Be sure  to read  all manufacturer’s  literature
supplied with your Four Winns® trailer.
Insert a 5” x 7/16” bolt or screwdriver into the reverse
lockout position hole (upper hole on side of actuator).
This will  then block  movement of the  actuator.   See
Figure  S16.   Reverse  lockout  option  must only  be
used when moving in reverse and when braking is not
required. Immediately remove bolt or screwdriver prior
to towing after backing up is completed.

Before  trailering, the  trailer should  be inspected  for
the following:
The reverse lockout position  hole and actua-

trailer forward enough so the holes are aligned
and the a bolt or screwdriver may be inserted
completely  into the  reverse lockout  position
Check  tires  for  proper  inflation.   Under-inflat ed
tires heat  up rapidly  and may  blowout or  cause
