What do you mean they aren't setting up? Nothing is moving?

Come on Flip... setting up. Its the same thing your butt cheeks do when UMP tries to role play Bubba from the prison movies.

ah, so they don't squeeze tight.....got it.

Are the calipers froze up? If not, try bleeding the lines.

What method do you guys use to manually pump the trailer brakes?

Push and pull on the actuator as if it's hooked to the ball of the tow vehicle or take a screwdriver and insert it like the owners manual shows and activate the piston on the master cylinder.

I had to disconnect my brake line and remove my caliper, because my brakes locked up on my 2003 X7 trailer. Been running without ever since, called the manufacturer of the brakes . They said since it's been over 3 years there is no warranty, even though it was a manufacturer flaw. I guess one of these days I will replaced them, when I have the cash.........
