It's tough to launch a boat when the trailer wont back up

And I dont know for sure but I the electronics to disable the feature are at the tonque....which is usually out of the water.

5-way flat connectors are compatible with a 4-way flat...usually I just provided a blue jumper wire independent of the 4-way that a customer could plug into the fifth fire wire on the trailer....avoids lots of confusion.
