Use this actuator to synchronize your trailer brakes with your tow-vehicle brakes. Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on 2" hitch ball. Designed for hydraulic disc brakes and 3x3 or 3x4 straight tongue.


Features:

  • Hydraulic actuator activates trailer's brakes when tow vehicle slows or stops
  • Electric reverse lockout lets you back up without actuating trailer brakes
    • Solenoid activates automatically when you shift into reverse
  • Low-profile coupler latch ensures easy, secure connection
    • Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on hitch ball
  • Aluminum master cylinder is better at reducing corrosion than cast steel master cylinders
  • Primed finish
  • Weld-on installation
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: hydraulic disc brakes
  • Ball size: 2"
  • Overall length: 17.5"
  • Mounting: 3" x 3" or 3" x 4" straight tongue
  • Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • 2-Year limited warranty


When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. With surge brake systems, the actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward while the tow vehicle slows. The actuator telescopes, applying force to its master cylinder, which in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage the trailer's brakes.


Electric Reverse Lockout

The electric reverse lockout on this trailer brake actuator is automatically activated when you shift your tow vehicle into reverse. The solenoid wires into your trailer connector - which connects to your tow vehicle - so that it can detect when you are in reverse. When your vehicle is in reverse, the solenoid ensures that the hydraulic actuator does not activate your trailer's brakes, thus allowing you to back up your rig. To use the lockout feature, you must have a 5-pole flat, 6-way round, or 7-pole trailer connector.

Have not use the Actuator yet. However it came in a oversize box. No packing material to protect it. It was damaged when I opened the box. Scratches and damage cable

Perfect fit. I had to notch one corner where my wiring came out of the box tubing. Really nice compared to the original that was on there

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I slipped this into my boat mate trailer for 2001 moomba. Took about an hour to hook up and bleed the system with a buddy. Works great! If you can use simple tools and are mechanically savvy this is a no brainer.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


Worked great, replaced an old Atwood, welded in where the old one was cut out. Minor modification to the brake line, easy to bleed master cylinder and then bleed brake system. Coupler is extremely easy to use.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


Paul is awesome!!
I was very pleased
with the way he handled the order. I was going to order it online but he suggested that he could possibly have it delivered in 3-4 days. Actually it was delivered in 24 hours.
I thought [other retailers] were quick about deliveries till I ordered from etrailer.
The coupler and the brake actuator fit perfectly and definitely was a great replacement from the Atwood coupler.
Thanks. Paul.

Received the brake actuator very fast, and it appears to be very well made. I have not as yet had time to weld it to the swing-away connection, but I don't think it will be a problem.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I’m very satisfied. I always check out etrailer for all my trailer needs and this time was no different. In under 2 hours by myself I changed out the old with the new ( pictures) and ready to bleed the brakes. I always let people know to contact etrailer with there needs. Thanks

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I ordered late Tuesday evening. It shipped on Wednesday, arrived Friday and my boat trailer was fixed by Friday evening. Product was exactly as advertised and the perfect replacement for my damaged one. Quick and accurate shipping had me back out fishing by the weekend. Very impressed with etrailer service levels.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I am very please. I received the wrong actuator, my fault. You immediately got me a return label sent it back. The money was refunded and then I purchased the right one. Received it in a few days. Excellent over all. Thank you

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


Amazing price for my favorite hitch, tongue actuator system made. I own 6 trailers and have had another dozen in the past. There is no better looking or functioning system .




by:

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


The product came unboxed, missing instructions and no spare break away clips. I purchased a new actuator and got one that was laying around.




by:

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


The manual lockout device, supplied with the actuator, requires a second person to hold it in place when backing. It will not stay in place on its own.




by:

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


Exactly what I needed. Didn't require the outer housing, the insider mechanism slid in nicely as a replacement on my trailer. The etrailer videos for installation and bleeding were very helpful.




by:

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I ordered this surge brake hitch without the back up solenoid. Due to supply chain problems it was going to take 3 months to ship. Upon receiving it far ahead of schedule it had the solenoid included at no extra charge meaning that someone at etrailer expedited my order and kept me happy at etrailers expense. How can you top that for service?




by:

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


Great product. Easy installation and exact fit. Product description on the website made it easy to find the correct replacement for the old part.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I received my order two days ago, Quick shipping but it was the wrong part. I called and spoke with Noah who sent me an email asking me to take a picture of the part and add my phone number. I did right a way and still have not heard back. I emailed Noah today asking about the status no reply, now Im on a 9min hold to try and talk with someone about my replacement past. The wrong part looks like a good part if it fit my trailer.


Comments
Mark, Im sorry Noah didnt reply to you in a timely manner. We will get this taken care of and send out the correct part.

  • Will the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Weld On Fit a 3" x 4" Trailer Tongue
    The customer review you are referencing is for a similar DX7.5L actuator. We put those reviews there when there is not enough reviews for the particular item to give you a good understanding of the reception. That being said, I called Dexter to confirm that this particular actuator, part # DX63FR, will fit your 3" x 4" tongue, and they assured me that it will. This is the actuator that you need. I've linked to a video review of this actuator for you to look at.

  • Inner Member Replacement for Dexter UFP A-60 Brake Actuator
    If you already have the housing welded on, you do not need the # DX63FR Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout. What you are looking for is the inner member. The # DX39FR Replacement Inner Member for Dexter DX7.5L Actuator - Single Axle w/ Disc - 2" Ball is what you need. This is the replacement inner member for Dexter DX7.5L and Legacy UFP Brake Actuators like your UFP A-60. I have attached a review video for your reference.

  • Can I Weld on a Bolt on Brake Actuator?
    Yes, you can weld on the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K item # DX56FR you referenced. You will want to make sure you remove the zinc coating and get down to the bare metal. I have attached a couple of diagrams I made with the dimensions on both actuators.

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator To Replace Old Atwood Surge Brake Actuator For Drum Brakes
    To replace your old Atwood surge brake actuator I recommend the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator - Weld On - Drum - 2" Ball - Primed - 7,500 lbs # DEX94FR which will still work with your 2" hitch ball and drum brakes. You will have no problem removing your current actuator and welding the # DEX94FR in its place. The # DEX94FR does have a manual reverse lockout but you will need to purchase the lockout key # DX94FR. I included a video of the # DEX94FR for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator For Discontinued Atwood 85739
    You are correct that the Atwood 85739 has been discontinued along with all of the replacement parts for it. I recommend replacing it with the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Weld On - Disc - 2" Ball - Primed - 7.5K # DX63FR if you have disc brakes or # DX53FR if you have drum brakes. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Surge Brake Actuator For Tandem Axle Boat Trailer With Disc Brakes
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 # DX63FR is would work perfectly for your boat trailer with tandem axles and disc brakes as long as your trailer frame is 3" x 3" or 3" x 4" and you are ok with welding it on. This actuator has a 7500lb weight capacity, so make sure your boat and trailer do not exceed that. Another option is the Dexter DX7.5 Drop-N-Go # 099-175-20 which has the same 7500lb weight capacity and is designed for hydraulic disc brakes, but has a zinc finish for superior corrosion resistance...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Trailer to Surge Disc with Welded on Atwood Actuator and 3,500 lb Axles
    Since your current Atwood surge drum actuator is welded to your trailer frame what you'll need to do is take the trailer to a welder who can cut the welds and remove what you have now and in place install a weld on coupler designed for disc brakes like the part # DX63FR. Since the diameter of your brake drum is 10 inch that means you have a 3,500 lb trailer axle so for a disc brake kit to replace that you'd just need the # K2R35DKG.
