How To Add 10 Inch Surge Brakes To a 2,500 Lb Trailer Axle On a Boat Trailer


To answer the question you asked in your reply this morning, we intend to also replace the hub and drums on our trailer. The inner bearing on our trailer is 1 3/8inch and requires 68149 and our outer bearing is 1 1/16inch and requires 44649. We plan to use Dexter hub and drum assemblies Item # 8-247-5OUC3 which I believe matched our trailer specs as well as the Titan brakes T4423500-400 and the Titan Leverlock actuator T43329007K previously mentioned. Will we be OK? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Titan Zinc-Plated, Leverlock Brake Actuator part # T43329007K will be sufficient to power two sets of the Titan Hydraulic Brake Kit part # T4423500-400 and the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 8-247-50UC3 will work with these as well as the spindles on your trailer if what you provided is correct. The weight capacity for the actuator is for the coupler portion, not the master cylinder so you could use braking assemblies that exceed this without issue.
