Review of Titan Trailer Brakes T4813102


Today we're going to take a look at the Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Over-Hydraulic Actuator Kit. Now this electric-over-hydraulic brake actuator with mount on your trailer. It plugs in to the 7 way trailer connector and the electric current will run to this actuator when your tow vehicle brakes are applied. The signal triggers the pump and motor on the actuator and that will activate your trailer brakes. The actuator is compatible with most in cab brake controllers. A brake controller is required to work with this.

We do sell those separate on our website if you need one. The brake controller will send the signal from the tow vehicle to the trailer when the brakes are applied. On the actuator right here, it has a pump and motor based system and this will increase the response time compared with your traditional hydraulic actuators. Basically, the trailer brakes are triggered when you apply the brakes on the tow vehicle as opposed to when the trailer pushes against the hitch ball like in your hydraulic actuators. On the inside of this actuator is the electronic proportional pressure valves. They will insure that the braking is very smooth and effective, controls your braking pressure during long term braking.

The fluid reservoir on this is isolated. It has a the diaphragm type filler cap to prevent spills and leakage. They do use the integrated weather seal connectors you can see right here which makes installation a snap. It's very quick and easy connecting every time with the plug and play design. The plug in harness. There's no hard wiring required and the additional plugs connect to your vehicle battery, and to the break away switch.

Basically, when you go to install this, if you notice on your 7-way harness right here. It has a 3-way connector. That just lines up with the 3-way and plugs in. Simple as that. You notice on your battery switch harness here has a 2 plug here that you just line up with the 2 plug female there.

Plug that in. Then your break away switch harness, you can see it has the female that will go into the 2. Simple as that is the plug and play installation. Now on the inside of this actuator they have podded hybrid circuitry which will provide dependable service even under adverse conditions. Again, it includes everything shown here. The BrakeRite Actuator, the standard 7-way wiring harness, battery switch harness, the break away switch and the break away battery harness is included. The break away battery is not. That would be sold separately on our website. They give you a nice manual on how this works and detailed instructions on how to install everything. Again, this is for disc brake system. It can be compatible with drum brakes, but you do have to buy an optional reducer. We do sell that separately on our website. Part number T4844100. The vehicle does require, as we mentioned, an in cab electric brake controller and a 7-way blade style connector mounted near the bumper of the vehicle. Ford and GM Trucks with the factory brake controller will also require an adapter to use this system and we do sell that separately. It's part number T4845900 and all these products that are required are usually listed on this product page as a related product. That should do it for the review on the Titan BrakeRite I Plug and Play Electric-Over-Hydraulic Actuator Kit.
