Seized drawbar.

Hi guys.
I have a super rollercoaster 7 and have a bit of an issue with the brakes but have isolated it to the the drawbar.
It seems the unit is seized even though it is taking grease. has anyone any suggestions on how to free it other than finding a solid wall and backing the trailer into it
Any help would be much appreciated.
Cheers
Aaron

If you can get grease in and it doesn't move its probably bent and or badly corroded!
You should be able to get a replacement easy enough!.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

Thanks Tino,
I had an feeling it might come to that. I will try to negotiate with it first(sledge) and failing that indespension in dublin will be the next stop.
Cheers,
Aaron

best way to free it up is to strap the back of the trailer to a real strong fence or another car at the back end, and tow it forward very slow to get the bar to come forward.
If its already forward the back the trailer up against a very strong wall or post.

A sledge hammer is ok untill you miss it and wack yourself on the shin with it.

once you get it moving then just keep it moving backwards and forwards untill it is very free to move it.

this is where a real good rinsing comes into play if youve been near salt water.

new units are very expensive, so i would try the towing it out method first.
