I would have a scotch but only after I put wheel chocks in place. Not sure I would trust the brake with the trailer hooked up to the bike.

What does a trailer have to do with it? It shouldn't roll down a hill with you and a passenger on it and the parking brake set and two typical corn-fed GWers weigh more than the trailer by a long chalk. If it does the brake needs adjustment.

I think the park brake is weak. Maybe you would break your brake.

What you guys talking about?? "scotch??"


Rayjoe
I think he meant chalk. A wheel chalk.

They're used so you can figure out where your bike or car rolled to when the e-brake lets loose. You follow the line of chalk left by the wheel chalk.

Wheel chock behind trailer tire. Wheel chalk is what the police use to time your parking. Scotch, makes all your troubles seem less so for a while. Then the problems might become bigger if you exceed the chalk time, for having /too much scotch and/or remembering to use your chocks too late. Your welcome.
