For some reason while reversing (and pulling forward, then reversing, then forward, the reversing,...ya, I suck at backing up), my surge brake pin pulled out of my Rockwood 2317G. I am not sure where this pin (small black pin) gets plugged back in etc.
Can someone shed some advice on what to do when that pin is pulled and the brakes are locked. I am guessing it should be able to be plugged back in some where on the hitch.
Good question. The true answer to keep it short is a bad hitch setup. The dealer that put my new hitch in for new TV had the shank way too low. Like way too low. So whilst backing up ( and forward and back) I was on a slight slope where something was catching. This is the first in 5 years this has happened and oddly I have parked on this spot many times. So it's a part hitch setup issue.
But ..to solve it, I bought a TT (dark side .....goodness .
Forgive me is you have checked this already but when that pin comes out it puts the full voltage of the battery on the brakes and depending on how long it was out you might have damaged the magnets. To be sure just check the brakes before you head out on your next outing. Better safe than sorry.
