Check the breakaway switch if you feel the brakes are in the ON position after passing through a waterway.
This switch can become waterlogged, resulting in a short circuit. As a result of the short circuit, the electric brakes are engaged.
The solution is to pill the pin, wipe clean and re-insert.
Finally, If the breakaway switch is still causing your brakes to engage, cut the cable and head to your nearest repair shop. The breakaway switch needs replacing.
