Most have a release switch that makes it so the brakes don't apply when you want to backup.
It's a pain sometimes, but not usually, I had it on my old boat trailer.
The new one is wired in...when you put it in reverse, it takes a signal from the backup lights and closes a solenoid and doesn't allow the brakes to work....sorta like a line lock.
New surge brakes are far better then the old crap.
