It's always an adventure with a Venture
Glad you got it sorted out, though!
I wish. Mine has no provision for that. I have even looked for a way to drill a hole and insert a pin to keep the surge from activating, but I am hesitant to weaken the tongue on an 8100 lb boat and trailer.
I had an issue when the solenoid went bad on our trailer. Now I keep a block, made of 2-2x4s screwed together, in my tool box along with a couple of long, heavy zip ties. If the solenoid goes out I can zip tie the block behind the surge tongue and it keeps it from sliding back and locking up the brakes.
What brand trailer do you have? Can you post a pic of the coupler? Just on the off chance that you're overlooking something...
It's a Shoreland'r.
I'll go find a picture. It works fantastic with the tow vehicle hooked up and the blue wire connected. It's just when I am stuffing it back into the storage corner with my Kubota that I have to use some finesse. I end up picking the tongue up with the skid steer bucket rather than using the coupler as a lift point.
I think your trailer already has some version of this....
