1989 Tristar Trailer Coupler & Wiring

I was wondering if anyone has ever taken off their actuator trailer coupler, for a fixed coupler. I have an original double axle trailer under the 190 Tristar with drum brakes and surge actuator. The actuator and brakes haven't worked since I got it a year ago and I don't feel I really need them. The boat doesn't weigh much and pulls easy anyway. 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.
