Ordered the trailer for the Fountain with elect brakes used it for seven years no problems worked great, amazing really. Removed the scary surge disc on two axles from under my "new" Scarab welded the coupler and switched it to elect drum on all three axles. A direct bolt on. Back to being confident towing. But I only see fresh water. And I do unplug before dunking but it is as much for the trailer lights as anything
