My 26D’s trailer is a duel axel, hydraulic over electric. I’ll be sailing in fresh water not salt water. Just wondering what the best brake controller might be.
True! Mine has a throw that is supposed to disengage the break. The problem is if it detects any forward motion, the throw trips. So if you have to pull forward for any reason, you have to get out of the car and reset the throw. Total PITA.Backing up with surge brakes can be tricky.

CaptVR here, Surge breaks, depending on the manufacturer have either a pin, or a lever like on a trailer winch, that locks the movable slide from sliding. This does not allow ram from setting breaks, this allows backing, and maneuvering be it a camper or a boat. Had a friend that use to bitch about his breaks binding up when backing, especially up hill, complained for three month. I told him he had a lock out, he told me he did not. I took him out to his trailer, now when I see him, he puts his hand over his face and says color me red. He said he seen it but thought it was part of the surge breaks, I looked at him and said "IT IS"Backing up with surge brakes can be tricky. You are pushing against the brake master cylinder
