Expert Reply:

I do not recommend using a parking brake of any type while the trailer is not in operation. The reason I don't is because locking the brakes up for extended periods of time can actually cause damage to the assemblies and will certainly drain the batteries.

I would recommend something like the Buyers Products 10" Wheel Chock w/ 3-1/2" Handle - Heavy Duty Rubber - Qty 1 # 337WC1086UWH. Wheel Chocks will prevent your trailer from moving and these particular chocks have a nice handle.
