A: Disconnect the trailer nose harness from the truck. Pull the pin from the BAS and try to move the trailer. If the brakes are locked, your BAS and battery are working correctly.

A: It indicates the ABS feature of your service brakes is not working properly. Your service brakes will still work however, you may not have anti-lock braking. The ABS module has a test mode which can be used to determine the specific problem with the ABS system. Follow the procedure shown on the ABS Blink Test document.
A: When power is supplied to the trailer (truck key placed in the ‘ON’ position), the trailer’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU) does a self-test and, upon satisfactory completion, will blink the amber ABS light on and then it will go off and remain off. If the amber ABS light remains on after self-test, there is a problem and the below ‘Blink Test’ procedure should be followed.
A: Please see the attached operating instructions.

A: When we manufacture our trailers and goosenecks, we intentionally design the mating surfaces between the neck and the Haul Pin where it passes through the alignment tray to a close tolerance fit. When extending the haul pin into the alignment tray lock position, full 3,000 PSI hydraulic pressure is delivered to ensure a positive lock. However, on retract (unlock), the hydraulic cylinder has an internal relief set at 550 PSI (plus/minus 75 PSI), which is a safety feature designed to protect the compression block cross bar from being damaged during retract in the event the cross bar is inadvertently left in the transport position (ie, not rolled out of the way). Accordingly, because the haul pin only has 550 PSI of hydraulic pressure on retract, it is possible that a brand new pin may fail to retract due to a close tolerance fit combined with minor galling where it mates with the alignment tray.
An effective solution for dislodging a stuck haul pin follows:
