How do you reverse with a trapezium stabiliser.  There is no way of locking it and I believe you must remove the bar when reversing but then you have very little control when reversing?

I see that there is a thin screw standing at the back of the towbar but I don't see where it goes.

No need to lock the Trapezium to reverse.

If anyone wants the Instructions, send  a blank e-mail to fppretorius@gmail.com.

It is unfortunate that people do not get the instructions with the product from dealerships, and then run into problems, and afterwards put blame on the product.

I have used trapeziums over 35 years, and reversed into any situation without ever locking the unit.

The unit is to be locked ONLY when you attach a trailer etc., and NOT using steering arm.

Derek, we had a1992 Esprit from 2005 to 2013, when we stopped caravanning - very nice van.

This is correct! ! ! ! ! !

Also towed with the trapezium on a Penta. No need to lock it. Keep everything as is for normal towing. Just engage reverse and go for it.

Lock screw is as mentioned only needed when towing something that can not accomodate the stabilizing arm.

Okay guys thanks for the help.  I do have the instructions but it doesn't mention reversing.

Busy renovating van - just putting in new Zero gas/220v fridge and Crame 2 burner stove.

Just small things from then on and then it will be time for a test run - Yippee!!!

Toe ek my Trapezium by Campworld gekoop het, het daai verkoopsmanne gesê ek mag nooit reverse met daai stang in posisie nie, want dan gaan ek hom buig. Lyk my hulle het my verkeerdelike inligting gegee aangesien hier al twee manne met Trapezium gesleep het en normal reverse het sonder probleme

Mens lock hom net as jy bv n sleepwa sleep en nie Trapezium wil afhaal nie. Dan gebruik jy hom as gewone hak. Reverse of vorentoe bly trapezium aan en werk.

I want to make sure I am now understanding everyone correctly.  I was also told by the salesperson to remove the bar when reversing but it seems that the general opinion is that this is incorrect and I can leave the bar connected and just reverse normally?undecided

Dagsê alle kampers,

Ek sleep (en reverse) al meer as 25 jaar met 'n Trapezium en het dit nog nooit ge-lock as ek agteruit ry nie, ek lock dit net as ek 'n sleepwa sleep.

Kamp groete,

Johan

Yes. You leave the bar connected and just reverse as normal.
