I can't lock the 5ver trailer brakes either, nor could I lock up the 831RLSS TT brakes. I think the trailers are too heavy to smoke the tires in a stop. I don't want them sliding and flat spot the tires, but I want feel the trailer trying to slow down the truck anytime I touch the brakes. Just my towing style.
