I have been twowing a toad for several years but have never had auxillary toad brakes. I recently purchased a 2002 Saturn L Series which has a Blue Ox base plate already installed and I have purchased a Blue Ox tow bar. There is a cable coming out of the front that extends appx. 22" to 24" and is attached to the Saturn brake pedal. I have read up on the available "surge" brake systems as well as "break away" and can not figure out what I have.
Any and all comments and ideas will be appreciated. I kind of like the idea of a surge system (years ago I pulled a horse trailer with surge brakes and had good experience) but I don't know if that is what the cable is for. I am unable to contact the previous owner.
