View Full Version : Verifying backup solenoid operation?

Had a problem where the trailer wouldnt back up and brakes locked after dropping boat in the parking lot. Since new to me a traced down the problem to the backup light wires not connected in the 7way plug. Fixed it and now have backup lights working on the trailer and 12vts to the brake release soleniod. Cant hear any clicking so was wondering if it was working correctly. To prove out, i backed trailer up on a hill (with boat attached) and it backed up fine. Tried the same with the power disconnected and acted the same.

Do those of you with the solenoid hear a click when its activated!
