For your Lund trailer, we don't have complete kits, however I can give you everything you need for this conversion. For your brake assemblies you will use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 7" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 2,000 lbs # AKEBRK-2. This will connect with # 10-2-1 wire sold by the foot and using heat shrink butt connectors # DW05745-5. This wiring will connect to the other end of your wiring using the same butt connectors to the 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector, 8' Long # H20046. I've attached the common wire color and functions, but you may need to test for function if the colors do not match using # PTW2993 to ensure the functions match.

Then you will just need to install the hub/drum assemblies to match. I recommend the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 2,000-lb Axles - 7" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 - L44649 Bearings # AKHD-545-2-2K.

This combination will work very well for your boat trailer, just remember to unplug your vehicle from your trailer before submerging in water for launch or loading.

If you don't already have a 7-way and brake controller on your vehicle let me know. The brake controller I recommend for this is # 90195 if you don't already have one. I've attached a video to assist. Depending on your vehicle, there may be a quick wiring harness option to make installation extremely easy.
