Disc brake actuators have a backup solenoid built into them. The backup solenoid is hooked up using the 5 flat or 7 round connector, with the blue wire activating the solenoid when the tow vehicle is put into reverse. In addition, some actuators also have a manual brake lockout to use to lockout the brakes. IMPORTANT - Do not leave manual lock out in place!!

The trailer VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or serial number is a 17 digit number located on the VIN label. Yacht Club Trailers will have the VIN label on the outside, left side (drivers) of the trailer frame, near where the sides meet the tongue. Eagle trailers will have the VIN label on the rear facing side of the nose cross member, at the rear of the tongue.

You must verify by identifying the ball size listed on the brake actuator. As a general rule, trailers up to and including 6500 pounds of carrying capacity have a 2" ball, and trailers over 6500 pounds of carrying capacity have a 2 5/16" ball

If your trailer is equipped with hydraulic brakes, DOT 3 brake fluid is used

The general rule is 5% - 10% of the gross load weight. Do not overload hitch or coupler/actuator tongue weight rating. Make sure trailer is sitting level during transport.

Bearing service should occur once a year, prior to putting the trailer away for storage. Un-serviced bearings will hold moisture and the bearings will rust during idle time. Failure will occur once used has begun.
