I'd rather eliminate actuator moving back and forth then mess with overhauling the brakes that haven't worked in who knows how long.

Also, if I disconnect the brake lines, has anyone capped them to prevent moister from getting in.

Also, here is what my c-channel trailer has to route wiring. It's like corder molding/trim and it's starting to come loose in other areas. Anyone know where I can get some more? I haven't found any.
You might want to check the laws in your state before you just disable the brakes - For me, I'd rather have the brakes. There is a reason why they are on the trailer but I'm not about to go down that path - maybe someone else will .

Also for the wiring, google "boat trailer wiring clips". A little reading provides suggestions and alternatives. Google knows all!
