Timbren Silent Ride and Disc Brake Kit Recommendation for 2016 Cedar Creek Hathaway Edition 38FB2


I own a 2016 Cedar Creek Hathaway Edition 38FB2 by Forest River. The fifth wheel has two Dexter 7000 lb axles with 16inch eight lug, ST, Grated 14 ply tires. The suspension is leaf springs with the Dexter EZ-Flex system. I want to replace the suspension and brakes with the following. Timbren Silent Ride Suspension for Tandem Axle Trailers w/ 3inch Round Axles - 14,000 lbs TSR14KT01, Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 13inch Hub/Rotor - 8 on 6-1/2 - Dacromet - 7,000 lbs K2HRCM1337-9DAC and Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator - 1,600 psi K71-651. Will these components work on my fifth wheel? Aside from brake lines and a professional to perform the installation...what may have I forgotten. Thank you


Expert Reply:

All of the components you referenced woudl work well together on your trailer. The Suspension kit part # TSR14KT01 is for trailers like yours with 14k capacities and the Kodiak kit part # K2HRCM1337-9DAC will fit the spindles.

Only suggestion I would make is the HydraStar actuator # CAR-HBA16-2 that comes with brake lines and a breakaway kit. We have found the Hydrastar to be the most reliable.
