it seems the blue wire for your backup lights is necessary if you have electric brakes, so that the trailer isn't on the brakes when you're backing it up when you press the brakes... makes sense so you don't jack-knife it. if you're not worried about back-up lights or you hitting the brakes too hard to cause it to jack-knife that i guess you don't need it.
what kind of boat are you rockin??
I found the same info searching the internet. Pretty sure my trailer does not have electric brakes. I don't even think there is a blue wire running through the trailer but it has a 5 pin connector. I have to double check when I get home today. I know all the lights work because I just had to reconnect the ground wire to the trailer and I checked all brake lights and turn signals.
I had to back it up into parking spot the other day with no problems but was on pretty level ground. I just recently bought a 2002 Monterey 180 Edge w/2003 Load rite trailer.
