swm1day Posted March 25, 2020 Report Share Posted March 25, 2020 Just sharing in case you have the 16,000 lb actuator on the Ameritrail: it has no manual lock out key. Worth noting before you get in a bind like I did. I learned the hard way last weekend. Bought a new truck and my brakes locked in reverse. No problem, I've had that happen before. But when I got out to investigate, I could not find anywhere on the actual coupler to manually lock it out so I could back into my storage spot. I was convinced that there had to be a way. Looked everywhere. The solution: you need to carry a big enough "wedge" and insert into the male/female gap to plug it up. I didn't know that so I struggled a bit as I chased down the problem. Just sharing in case you didn't know and want to be prepared. Here is my part: [yes, you can see the clip in the picture that they give to dealers, but not to owners] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
