Expert Reply:

I can help you install new hydraulic brake lines on the trailer. The Titan Zinc-Plated Actuator part # T4750620 is a surge brake actuator so you need hydraulic brake lines. The kit you need depends on how long the trailer is that you are installing the lines in and how many axles the trailer has.

The Kodiak Hydraulic Brake Line Kit part # 24TA-BLKIT is for a 24 foot tandem axle trailer. To install the lines you want to drill a hole near where the Titan Coupler installs so that you can attach the line directly to the back of the master cylinder after installation instead of running it up and around the frame to attach it to the coupler. If you have a channel style trailer frame you can drill holes and run the lines through the frame for a cleaner installation. If you have an open frame or l-shaped frame you can run the lines on the inside of the trailer frame wall. You do not want to run the lines on the outside of the wall of the trailer because the lines can become damaged from debris on the road. I have attached a photo of what the installation should look like.

I have attached instructions on how to bleed the brake lines after installing the Titan actuator. You can use the Powerbuilt Brake Bleeder part # ALL648591 to make the process a little easier for you.
