I'm about to replace some brake components on my boat trailer. It's an EZ Loader trailer with surge brakes. Question is after I replace the parts how do I effectively bleed the system?

plastic tube from bleeder into a coke bottle of water then pump away until nothing but brake fluid enters the water. make sure the hose stays below the water level and you wont suck any air on the return stroke.

Youtube is great!

There is a hole/slot cut in the frame where the surge cylinder is located where you can insert a screw driver blade and pump the system. Make sure you keep the reservoir full of the correct brake fluid.
