Installing boat trailer brake surge can help prevent accidents on the road. A typical trailer brake surge utilizes the natural centrifugal force to control the movement of the trailer as the tow vehicle applies the brake. Constant use can wear down the boat trailer brake so you need to change the brake from time to time to prevent accidents. To install a new boat trailer brake surge, here is what you should do.

Step 1 – Put the trailer in Position

Park the trailer properly and put the jacks in position. Crank up the jacks to raise the wheel of the trailer, then use a wrench to remove the wheel completely. Remove the wheel hub and set it aside.

Step 2 – Install the Brake Caliper

Locate the brake bracket and affix the brake caliper support onto it. After installing the brake caliper, slide the brake rotor into the spindle of the new wheel hub.

Step 3 – Connect the Caliper

Once the caliper is in place, install the brake pads on the caliper by clipping them to the caliper.

Step 4 – Close the Caliper

Align the holes on the sides of the caliper and put the bolts on.
