Trailer Surge Brake Actuator Option For 3-1/2 Inch Wide Trailer Frame


I have a need for a trailer brake coupler with break actuator. It needs to accept a 2 inch ball. Here is my problem. It has to go on a 3 1/2 inch frame.


Expert Reply:

Almost all trailer brake actuators are designed for 3 inch wide trailer frames, the only option would be to weld a coupler on top of your 3-1/2 inch frame. The issue with this for you is that the options for those only accept a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball, so if it all possible you would need to switch to that, with either the 1 inch diameter shank 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40005 or 1-1/4 inch diameter shank 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40030.

If you can go to the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball, then you can weld one of the Titan couplers onto the top of your frame, with the right option depending on if you have drum brakes or disc brakes:

- Drum Brakes: Titan Brake Actuator # T1607500

- Disc Brakes: Titan Brake Actuator # T4749600
