I have a 2007 Dorsey trailer and having an issue with not being able to go into reverse.

Had it for 2 years with no issues and a few weeks ago I left my house (reverse was working) and got to the lake 15 miles away and no reverse. Used a coin to lockout the actuator (think thats what its called) and was able to launch the boat, etc. Now troubleshooting for a permanent resolution.

Checked all fuses and they are good. Have all lights working on trailer including reverse lights. Emailed the Dorsey rep and here was the reply:
It sounds like your reverse solenoid is not engaging. If you stand at the tongue of the trailer when someone puts the tow vehicle in reverse, you should hear the solenoid “click”. If it doesn’t click, check to make sure you have voltage in the wire going into the solenoid. There could a connection problem where the wire from the solenoid connects to the wiring harness, or you could have a bad solenoid.

I am not the most technically inclined, but can anyone suggest where to go from here? I plan on hooking up the trailer tomorrow morning and seeing if it clicks or not. Thought I might be able to get some additional advice to troubleshoot while it is hooked up tomorrow.

Thanks for any help!!

Note: I did search the forum and online in general but did not find anything clear cut that would assist.
