Many thanks Trailer Guy - Knott Brakes

I have just spent a scintillating day replacing the Knott brakes, Tow Head and pull rod on my braked trailer. Total cost of Parts including the tow head and brakes etc was £350 and doing the job was not fun...... But many thanks to the You Tube video postsd by Trailerguy which made the job loads easier than it would have been if I was left to my own devices.



Many thanks. Here are a couple of before and after pics. I have to say that as far as braking is concerned I feel like we are all fighting a loosing battle if we dunk our trailers in that salty stuff

I know what you mean but that isn't going to happen at the Ferry far too shallow. To make matters worse I just worked out that I could have got the same parts off ebay for about £50 less. Robbing gits at Indespension . Still I needed to get the job done quick as I am taking the whole rig to Devon in a week and a half
