Recommendation to Convert Surge Brakes To Electric On 2015 Nitro/Tracker Trailer  


I want to convert my tandem axle boat trailer from surge to electric. Attached are pics that may be helpful. It has disc brakes, is a 2015 Nitro/Tracker trailer. I could not find a weight rating but one of the pics has the serial number if that helps. Can you help with the needed parts? Thanks for your help


Expert Reply:

To completely convert your trailer from surge to electric, I recommend the HydraStar Marine Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator w/ Breakaway and 7-Way RV Harness - 1,600 psi # HS381-9067 to keep your hydraulic disc brakes which are far better. Then you just need to add a brake controller to your vehicle like # 90195 which works great with the EOH systems. This combination will give you superior braking and the best of both worlds regarding electric and hydraulic systems.

If you wish to convert to all electric, I will need the bearing numbers for the inner and outer bearing on your hubs. If you can't find the numbers on the face of the bearings you can measure your spindles with a digital caliper like # PTW80157. I've attached a photo to assist.
