    Default Big Goof Up......left brake cable hooked up and pulled out

    well I goofed up and somehow overlooked unhooking the emergency brake cable today when I put the boat up. I pulled fwd to close the door and ripped the hook off the cable as I pulled fwd. the cable is pulled our far enough that I can see some yellow paint on he cable. I had to run and grab my oldest daughter from church so I haven't had time to play with it except to push the trailer backwards and fwd a little bit. when I push it backwards I hear the metal on metal grinding sound.

    what kind of damage am I looking at and how much money can I expect to be out?

    I can ask the dealer tomorrow but the emergency cable your refering to is designed so that it your boat unhooks from the truck it applies the trailer brakes. Its interesting you can move the boat at all LOL.

    Pull the lever underneath to return the line and replace the hook.

    Maybe cause the boat wasn't in motion when it got pulled out?

    If you pulled the hook off the brakes should be locked, if it's locked use the break cable release leaver to reset it. If not either the hook came off too easily, or you have another issue...

    Let us know how this works out for you. I did a similar thing a year or two ago. During the unhooking process, I left the safety cable on the ball accidentally and then moved the truck forward. The only thing on the was safety cable. The cable broke/pulled cleanly off the trailer. I never look anymore into it, as everything still worked, no locked brakes, brakes still apply as normal.

    For me, I guess I answered my own question regarding a broken cable. $20 from boatmate

    I think when I did it....errr I mean, I have this friend that I know when he pulled his off completely it cost $125 to replace the whole thing. I was told I could link it back together, but I figured it wouldnt be as strong and just wanted it completely replaced....I meant my friend that I know wanted it replaced....LOL
