Parts Needed To Add Hydraulic Surge Brakes To Trailer With Lippert Electric Drum Brakes


I need a 20k weld on brake actuator with manual lockout. My customer listed Dexter but I dont see anything like that. The axles are listed as Lippert torflex with electric drum is this going to work?


Expert Reply:

I only see that Dexter/Titan offer an electric lockout # T4853220 or no lockout # T4848600 on their surge brake actuators. Since you have electric drum brakes on his axles those will need to be changed out for hydraulic. You should consider then using free backing brakes like the Hydraulic Brake Kit # AKFBBRK-7-D then you will not need any lockout as the brakes will not engage when driving in reverse.

If you can give me the axle serial numbers and length to coupler I can determine what brakes, hoses and other parts will be needed.
