Why as per usual? Their cars leave a lot to be desired.............

Richard, from your description is sounds as though the trailer hand brake will not work if the trailer is disconnected from the car with it's stern facing down hill.

The coupling is more complex and has a "Reverse Action Lever" not sure what part this plays but will find out at the weekend.
Maybe this device is the fix for it. Would you report back please after you've sussed it and dunked it into salt water a few times? Ta.
